Iran's Revolutionary Guard Sends Formal Message To US Military: Leave Syria Or Else

Submitted by Elijah Magnier, Middle East based chief international war correspondent for Al Rai Media

Well informed sources have said the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp Brigadier General Haj Qassem Soleimani sent a formal verbal message, via Russia, to the head of the US forces command in Syria, advising him to pull out all US forces to the last soldier “or the doors of hell will open up”.

“My message to the US military command: when the battle against ISIS will end, no American soldier will be tolerated in Syria. I advise you to leave by your own will or you will be forced to it,” said Soleimani to a Russian officer. Soleimani asked the Russian officer to make known the Iranian intentions towards the US: that they will be considered as forces of occupation if these decide to stay in northeast Syria where Kurds and Arab tribes cohabit together.

The Russians are not necessarily against the US presence and can adapt to this after defining the demarcation lines to avoid any clash, but Iran has a clear position and has decided not to abandon the Syrian President alone to face the US forces, if these stay behind.

Soleimani’s message to the US clearly indicated the promise of ‘surprise measures’ against the US:  "You shall face soldiers and forces you have not experienced before in Syria and you will leave the country sooner or later."

Russia conveyed to the US that Iran will stay in Syria as long as President Assad desires, and he insists on liberating the entire territory from all forces without exception. Russia confirmed to the US its intention to refrain from offering any air support to Iran and its allies in the case of attacks on US forces. From the Russian perspective, the Iran-US dispute is not its concern nor on its agenda.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo said last week that he had sent a letter to Soleimani expressing his concern about Iran’s intention to attack American interests and “will hold Soleimani and Iran accountable for any attack in Iraq.”

Mohammad Mohammadi Golpayegani, a senior aid to the Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei confirmed Pompeo’s attempt to send a letter but said  “Soleimani refused to read it or to take it because he has nothing further to add.”

Sources in the area believe it is not unlikely that Kurdish groups – operating in al-Hasaka (Syria's northeastern province) and who are faithful to the government of Damascus – are willing to spearhead attacks against the US forces. Many of these groups remained loyal to Syria: they reject any occupation forces on its land or the partition of the country.

Meanwhile, Al-Hasaka 2018 is being widely compared to 1983 Beirut where hundreds of US Marines and French paratroopers were killed following double suicide attacks by Islamists in the Lebanese civil war. The multinational forces became hostile rather than peacekeepers and were pushed to hastily exit Lebanon as a consequence of this attack. The future could well mirror these past events.

Like I said: Will Trump move the Jew capital to Jerusalem?

Of course, the idiot will. Trump is a Jew.

Just like, Obama, Bush and (Bill & Hillary) Clinton are all Jews.

And as to how real wars are fought,.... i.e., through deception, see

Proof that Adolf Hitler was a double agent.

It seems pretty weird when you first read it, but its clearly true.

What is weird is this; that 2000 years ago, there were no people even resembling Jews in the middle-east at all.

Turns out that there is not a single ancient Jewish city in what is now called Israel. There is not a single city where the Hebrew script is used on the statues and buildings. There is not a single city where the buildings are in the ancient Jewish architectural style. In fact, there is not even a category of "ancient Jewish architectural style".

If you check out all the ancient cities in Israel, they are all Greek, and their ruins are still there for you to visit. Their inscriptions are in the Greek script and the buildings are in the ancient Greek architectural styles.

Here is a list of some of the known ancient Greek cities in (and near) Israel; Ecdippa, Seleucia, Ptolemais, Taricheia Arbela, Asochis, Sepphoris, Hippos, Dion, Sycaminum, Bucolon Polis, Itabyrium, Gadara, Abila, Dora, Comus, Gephrus, Crocodilion Polis, Caesarea, Straton's Tower, Narbata, Scythopolis, Pella, Samaria, Amathus, Ragaba, Gerasa, Apollonia, Sicima, Pegae, Joppa, Arimathea, Jamnia, Port of Jamnia, Lydda, Modiin, Aphaerema, Philadelphia, Birtha, Gazara, Beth Horon, Dok, Jericho, Samaga, Esbus, Medaba, Ladder of Tyre, Azotus, Port of Azotus, Accaron, Jerusalem, Ascalon, Anthedon, Gaza, Marissa, Beth Zur, Hebron, Adora, Engeddi.

The ancient Jewish cities in Israel are,.... well there aren't any. Not even one.

Here's an interesting example of a first century BC Greek inscription (i.e., in Greek letters) from Jerusalem's Temple Mount forbidding the entry of Gentiles (i.e., non-Greeks) to the Temple precinct....…

Slack Jack's CHALLENGE:

Name ONE ancient city (that existed in what is now called Israel) where the building inscriptions are all in Hebrew, and the buildings are constructed in the ancient Hebrew architectural style (whatever that may be).

Then give a summary of "the ancient Hebrew architectural style" (you will have to make this up as it does not yet exist).

Then give links to photos of the ancient building inscriptions which show that they are in written in Hebrew.

Then show that the buildings are constructed in the ancient Hebrew architectural style (that you have just defined/invented).

Your comment is complete BS.Here is one very famous ancient Hebrew inscription from Jerusalem: about the dead sea scrolls? Hebrew yet again: here's another one: another one: another one:

Mementoil Dec 9, 2017 2:39 PM "You are wrong. The first example I have given is from the Siloam tunnel"

My apologies. Missed that one. However:

The Siloam inscription is written Paleo-Hebrew which is not Hebrew at all but Phoenician (which is an archaic form of Greek).

The Phoenician alphabet is so similar to the greater-Greek alphabet (and nothing at all like Hebrew) that only Jews could call it Paleo-Hebrew.

So your list still rates a FAIL.

See, this is a perfect example of how the DC Swamp starts trouble and bloodshed for nothing.We should not be in Syria for any reason, not even to protect our ISIS serial killer employees.That Syrian takedown project was a total bust and the ISIS recruits turned out to be proven losers in every way.An army of lemons.A complete waste of money, military instruction, medical care, even when we supplied them with advanced weaponry.Whatever.The Russians showed up and eliminated one ISIS pocket after another, and now they more or less run the show.You win some you lose some.There is nothing for America in Syria but a waste of blood and treasure.This international baby sitting routine has no cost benefit for Americans, nor anyone else for that matter -- Syrians, Israelis, Iraqis, etc., none of them.

"Phoenician (which is an archaic form of Greek)"

never go full retard bud. You've now reversed the fruits of two centuries of scholastic work to uncover the philological truth about the antecedence of near eastern languages.

I had no problem with your pursuit of a spurious claim about the imagined Greek presence in ancient Canaan ... as every one is welcome to their own interpretation of history...

but THAT is a bridge too far. Back to the drawing board Jack.

I became convinced of this guy's troll status when a few months ago he said words to the effect that V. V. P. would not do anything to impede Israeli interests in Syria. I pointed out to him/her that the  very presence of Russian forces in Syria was impeding Israeli goals in Syria. Russia drstroyed ISIS in Syria. Even the Zionist government has acknowledged that they prefer the murderous head-choppers to the legitimate,  elected Syrian government that their Oded Yinon Plan calls to do away with. Anyhow ... The Greek presence in Syria began in the 7th century BC and became more prominent during the Hellenistic period The Hellenistic period covers the period of Mediterranean history between the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC and the emergence of the Roman EmpireAfter Alexander the Great's invasion of the Persian Empire in 330 BC and its disintegration shortly after, the Hellenistic kingdoms were established throughout south-west Asia (Seleucid EmpireKingdom of Pergamon), north-east Africa (Ptolemaic Kingdom) and South Asia (Greco-Bactrian KingdomIndo-Greek Kingdom). The Hellenistic period was characterized by a new wave of Greek colonization[5] which established Greek cities and kingdoms in Asia and Africa.[6] This resulted in the export of Greek culture and language to these new realms, spanning as far as modern-day India. This mixture gave rise to a common Attic-based Greek dialect, known as Koine Greek, which became the lingua franca through the Hellenistic world.Scholars and historians are divided as to what event signals the end of the Hellenistic era. The Hellenistic period may be seen to end either with the final conquest of the Greek heartlands by Rome in 146 BC following the Achean War, with the final defeat of the Ptolemaic Kingdom at the Battle of Actium in 31 BC, or even the move by Roman emperorConstantine the Great of the capital of the Roman Empire to Constantinople in 330 AD.[8][9] See the map. Note it includes the Levant, Jerusalem, etc.…

It matters little in the bigger picture. Whether or not Hebrew buildings existed prior to 70AD is a moot point. Thereafter they were destroyed along with 99% of the Jewish population. Those jews of modern times are not jews at all- merely Khazarian converts, who became jewish not from faith but from political expediency- not wishing to side with either their Muslim or Christian neighbours.

LOL, I love watching these idiots make a mockery of themselves."Other somewhat embarrassing incidents involving US troops included a US military truck colliding with a bus; a military ammunition truck falling in a ditch; and a service vehicle getting stuck in another ditch while turning around." Putin for the WIN!!!

Not a chance. Our new style of "combat"  is advising and providing support to local proxies who theoretically do the fighting for us. The problem here is we keep losing. And we kinda ran out of idiots. So who's gonna fight for us now? The Kurds? LOL. Yemen? Probably not. Jordan? As if. Somalia? Keep us laughing. Wait, Iraq and Afghanistan?  Uh huh. Quatar? Maybe 5 years ago. Last I heard we were bringing in troops (mercenaries) from the Sudan.The "coalition" is looking mighty thin these days.

This Iranian response is an excellent example of SPIRITUAL WARFARE.Let me remind everyone of just one point: All of what we are seeing was predicted thousands of years ago. If you follow the timeline back to the time of Abraham. one finds that both Sarah and Abraham decided that they would give GOD some help in giving Abraham an heir. So Abraham has relations with Sarah'servant, Hagar, which lead to the birth of Ishmael. Of course this incident was in disobedience to GOD's plan. Ishmael's decendents are the Arabs who follow ISLAMIC religion we see today.So why do Saudi Arabia and Iran behave like they do today? Genesis 16 has the full story and the answers.And GOD says ...The angel of the Lord also said to Hagar:“You are now pregnant    and you will give birth to a son.You shall name him Ishmael,    for the Lord has heard of your misery.He will be a wild donkey of a man;    his hand will be against everyone    and everyone’s hand against him,and he will live in hostility    toward all his brothers.”

Bubba Rum Das While I don't know how the "earth is FLAT" comment fits here, I do believe in the Bible and how it lays out the GENEALOGY OF ABRAHAM.In fact, I could show you which of NOAH's sons is your GREAT, GREAT, GREAT .... GREAT GRANDFATHER. The GENEALOGIES are well known today. You can google the GENEALOGIES for yourself.You also said: "I suppose you also believe that the earth is FLAT; & that the rest of the solar system orbit's the earth, just like it say's in the bible???" This presupposition is in error. Below is another verse that was written thousands of years ago that gives additional details of how GOD designed the earth and the heavens.Isaiah 40:21-22 (The Earth is round!)21 Do you not know?    Have you not heard?Has it not been told you from the beginning?    Have you not understood since the earth was founded?22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,    and its people are like grasshoppers.He stretches out the heavens like a canopy,    and spreads them out like a tent to live in.

Fake nuus.Actually, the super corrupt persian Islamist pedophiles have been saying the same tired old violent shit for over forty years. Like a broken record, shit gets old. Isn't "Death to America" their national anthem?Of course let me qualify that I am of the opinion that the US should not be in Syria or anywhere else in the middle east and it is only because of bloody progressive criminals like Hillary who led the charge to destabilize Syria and Libya with her "Assad must Go" and Qaddafi must go" crap that the US is there. Opps--- almost forgot dumbass George Bush and his Iraq crime.I like to point out tyrannical bullshit-no matter where it is from.     Grimaldus
