The West might hardly believe it, but it now seems the Syrian war is ending – and Assad is the victor

While we’re all waiting for Trump to start World War Three, we’ve not spotted that the military map of the Middle East has substantially, bloodily changed. It will be years before Syria and Iraq (and Yemen) are rebuilt – and the Israelis may have to go to Putin to clear up the mess they’re now in

A message came through from Syria on my mobile phone last week. “General Khadour kept his promise,” it read. I knew what it meant.

Five years ago, I met Mohamed Khadour, who was commanding a few Syrian soldiers in a small suburb of Aleppo, under fire from Islamist fighters in the east of the city. At the time, he showed me his map. He’d recapture these streets in 11 days, he said.

And then in July this year, I met Khadour again, far out in the east of the Syrian desert. He was, he said, going to enter the besieged city of Deir ez-Zour before the end of August. I reminded him, a trifle cruelly, that the last time he told me he’d recapture part of Aleppo in 11 days, it took the Syrian army more than four years to retake. That was long ago, he said. In those days, the army had not learned to fight in a guerrilla war. The army were trained to retake Golan and defend Damascus. But they had learned now.

  1. Another view: Actually the aim of ‘Destruction and Destabilization’ has already been achieved. And by letting President Assad remain there is always a reason to continue the ‘Destruction and Destabilization’ action.

  2. Assad won? because those who were doing the destabilization consider ‘job well done’ on one side and ‘let’s waste our funds in Yemen for the time being’ on the other?

    • It is a proove that Islamic teaching do not create peace and mercy anymore since the book of hadith appeared on earth. Most muslims obey the sunnah that written in the book of hadith. Imam Muslim – Bukhari ( Hadith) command Muslims to kill or punish Blasphemer, apostate, homosexual, infidel etc.
      So as long as Muslims believe in the sunnah of prophet, this catastrophy, muslim kill other muslim will continue forever, ALLAH curse and punish Muslims severely like Allah cursed and punished Jews and Christian thousand years ago.
      Hopefully Muslim Ahmadiyyah can declare bravely to the the world that Muslims have to stop believing in The book of Hadith. The book of hadith is the root of violence and create more islamic extremist.
