A Map Of The Syrian War: Who Is Who (And Where)

On Thursday, just 24 hours before Trump ordered airstrikes on Syria for the second time in just over a year, we said that "with war likely set to break out in Syria at any moment, a question many Americans are asking is... where is Syria?

We then added that "geographical challenges aside, it is safe to say that the situation in Syria is extremely fluid, and changing on an almost daily basis" which is why we showed several strategic and tactical snapshot maps of Syria as of this moment."

Fast forward to Friday night, when at exactly 9pm ET on Friday 13, Trump announce that war airstrikes on Syria have once broken out, as expected, and for those who may have missed the various tactical and strategic maps of the Syrian theater, here they are again.

The first and most useful one, shows the strike locations in Syria from the combined operations of the US, UK and France.

Then a map courtesy of Turkey's Omran Dirasat think tank, shows updated areas of control and influence in Syria by international military forces with reference to the most prominent international military sites in Syria.

The second map, from Dirasat employee Nawar Sh. Oliver lays out the control and influence zone in Syria as of April 2018, revealing the relative % of gains and losses in the last 24 days.

Finally, from the regional political journal, Suriye Gündemi English, here is a map showing the latest military situation as well as location of key military bases in Syria ahead of the expected US strikes.

This latest chemical attack in Syria is yet another FALSE FLAG.

Just like all the previous chemical attacks in Syria were FALSE FLAG events.

Just like the Skripal "chemical attack" in Britain was a FALSE FLAG event.

Trump is a Jew (so are Macron and Theresa May, by the way).

It seems the Jews want war,.... yet again.

If Putin does not respond, with force, to force,....

We can only conclude that Putin is a Jew too; Putin the new Hitler.

If you wish to see how real wars are conducted, read:

Proof that Adolf Hitler was a double agent.

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

--------------------------------------------

Does anyone actually think a single missile was fired?

OR,... is it all massively coordinated false news.

HAS ANYONE ACTUALLY SEEN VIDEO OF THE DAMAGE THAT THESE MISSILES CAUSED?

The 30 or 40 missiles that got through should have left a few holes here and there.

Unless, of course, it is all BS.

It is 2 PM in Damascus; the video clips should have been up-loaded hours ago.

But there don't seem to be any.

"That's not the way the world really works anymore. We (Jews) are an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality (by outright lies)... We're history's actors (the creators of huge wars)... and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do (and get away with)."

All the pro-Russia derps claiming the S-900000 (S-300/400) were sooooo wonderful, were just proven WRONG again.  Russia and their military sucks.  No match.  Let this be a lesson to the neophyte pro-Russia crowd on the board. 

Having said that...Syria is not our problem and the US is NOT the world's police.  Sometimes I guess you have to punch Putin the face though.

It doesn't seem unreasonable to think that the deep state got hold of trump's personal files through his lawyer and is now using this info to pressure him to doing everything they want. They had to because lavrov was about to release the proofs the gasings were fake. I see the hands of Theresa May and Hilary Clinton in particular behind this very botched move. 

Botched move because this exercise in futility -turning rubble into sand- costed this coalition something around $500 million for no other result than a public relation boondoggle whereas Russia did not lose any money, China has now been convinced their interest lies with Russia, Syrian unity and cohesion just got another boost, and anything that could lead to the construction of a gas pipeline through Syria got delayed even more. This is how you win heroic wars on the other side of the Atlantic apparently.

If trump was serious he would arrest a bunch of deep state traitors, in particular Hillary, and execute them for treason but he's got no balls and stands to avoid destruction of his personal belongings, especially after the latest fire in his tower. He will lose everything as a result. He's already their prisoner but nobody suspects anything. 

So from now you can bet on the fact that America is at war with the rest of the world. 

Why did Russia not do anything against the waves of missiles from yesterday? There could be 2 reasons:

  1. Targets have been negotiated in advance and everybody could secure their stuff. So the coalition made a demonstration of power but cost was prohibitive. Should there be civilian casualties this could easily become a  huge diplomatic problem for them. And rest assured there will be civilian casualties. They may even let the white helmets do the cleaning under surveillance of course. 
  2. Russians did not want to lose crucial missiles by chasing stupid tomahawks and did not jam them to let civilians be killed by Americans exclusively. Cost effectiveness was minimal and did not leave Russia depleted of counter measures for at least a number of days, which in the current situation is perilous. Moreover they didn't show their response which leaves them with an advantage because Americans and Israelis cannot even start working on countermeasures yet. 
  • Additionally as it looks like the US missiles were not jammed, this seems to indicate that Russians knew where they were going and that jamming could have made things a bit more dangerous. This sole point is remarkable because Russia is ordinarily not that passive. But here they're banking on the mistakes of Americans. And everybody knows America loves throwing big numbers and has little interest for precision. 
  • Finally this attack didn't serve any of this coalition's  interest, because besides the bragging right of molesting a third world country, they most certainly did not gain any sympathy in the world. Therefore they isolated themselves and Russia gained a lot of support, but...

But it doesn't change the fact that Russia has now to quickly react in a commensurate measure to save face, and more importantly not to give the coalition of the cowards the feeling they can act with impunity. 

  • I suspect they are going to jam all the boats and maybe organize 1 or 2 crashes and render everything useless. 
  • They may also start attacking U.S. military satellites to disrupt communications. This is a big part of America's strength and yet so vulnerable. 
  • Additionally they're going to start piling up ordinance in Iran and other remote places to counter future attacks of the same type. 
  • Finally they're going to organize a serious economical response with China by stopping exports of rare earths, titanium, maybe platinum and everything the west hasn't got. This will lead to a war of attrition.
  • It is very important to render the American war machine as dysfunctional as could be for their future moves. There's going to be a lot of things happening behind the scene that we may not be aware of. 

The interest of Russia is not to start ww3, contrary to America and the west who have to find a derivative to the incoming financial winter. That's why they will now concentrate on accelerating the economical collapse of Sodom and Gomorrah. 

 

P.S.: Tyler you should fix the assertion that America bombed chemical weapons production facilities in Syria. They didn't because there is none. What they hit was petroleum institutes, thereby destroying Syrian capability to develop new petroleum products. You should stop relaying that official propaganda sometimes.

Pathological power is now ready to destroy civilization.  WE DID IT TO OURSELVES! It is the final stage. I am convinced it has happened to humans before. As long as we agree to be slaves it will always happen.

Only thing left to do now is start praying and digging in.

If we survive into the future, a message to you who survive: Dear freedom lovers, dear future humans who somehow win your freedom,  never ever allow someone to rule over you! Never ever allow others to steal taxes from you! Remember the foolish Americans who won their freedom and then threw it all away! They allowed themselves to be enslaved by criminals!!!! Those who steal from you will kill. Those who kill will become lovers of death. Nature provides nuclear power to keep the foolish, the unworthy, the unready to stay enslaved away from freedom that each of us must sooner or later embrace or die.

Perhaps only the few are allowed into paradise. Maybe only the few may embrace the truth while the rest embrace death over and over millions of years into the future. Nature condemns you who choose slavery! You choose death when you choose to be slaves. Now watch as you and your loved ones DIE!!!

The Russian MOD states that Syria knocked out 71 of the 103 cruise missiles ie about 71%. That is way up on the 50% of Trump's first strike. Russia is now considering supplying Syria with S-300s

https://southfront.org/russia-says-syrian-forces-intercepted-71-of-103-…

Assad may or, more likely ,may not have killed innocent Syrian women and children, but Trump definitely killed 10 in his first strike. We will see how many he has killed in this second strike. I wonder how many dead Syrian women and children it will take to satisfy his blood lust.

Hi guys!  So, ummm, just wonderin' ... ummm, errr, is Trump still colluding with the Russians?

Now would be a good time to dig up all the MSM propaganda from 2015 when MSM said that Trump was going to start WW3 against the Russians.  Beware the Ds with long memories.  What's MSM saying at the moment?  Someone could have some fun making a collage out of that kind of stuff from the last 4 years.  Are Trump and MSM still 180 degrees out of phase or have they suddenly synchronized on this one?

You know what really would have come in handy?  Instead of destroying evidence, perhaps some photos or video footage or something to prove that the targets actually did need to be blown up.  Oh, sorry.  Silly me.  If that was their M.O. then they wouldn't be in Syria in the first place.

That is such good music. When I was younger I did not appreciate it. Now, when I hear a real voice, a real guitar, a real drum, a real cymbal, it is so invigorating. What is so good about it is that it is not perfect. The human voice and humans playing instruments are not perfect. It is soothing to hear the HUMAN factor and not the computerized all rough edges gone music. 

I agree with you on your point of contention as well.

Not only is Obama & now Trump Scum Fuck Pure Evil War Criminal Psychopaths, they've now officially become, although they've always have been, accessories to War Crimes, Treason & Conspriacy to Murder American's.

 

It's safe to say now, any Criminal Fraud CEO "President" of the Criminal Fraud UNITED STATES, CORP. INC. from here on out would have to defacto continue the Crime, swear an Oath to Treason & continue the PsyOp / False Narrative Flag of 911.

Remember four pointes:

 

1. Isreal will fight to the very last American Soldiers Death.

2. The Zionist screams in Fear as he Stikes you.

3.The Yinon Plan.

4.Operation TALPIOT.

The U.S. is so fortunate that Putin is the president of Russia.  He has been wise, restrained and intelligent, a world-class statesman.  If someone like Hitler or Stalin had been in power, things could have been very different for the U.S.  Trump is a disappointment on Syria.  He takes the bait every time instead of keeping his campaign promises to get us out of Syria.

Iran is next on the hit parade, then Russia (throw in Lebanon somewhere).  I am just shocked that when the neo cons announced their strategic plan (look up General Westley Clark's comment) before going into Iraq, people thought it was fantasy.  Even the fucking Russians thought so.  Now all these countries are going to be ass fucked while their people demand 'diplomacy'!
