DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:05 P.M.) – Over 4,000 soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) have completed officer training school at the Homs Military Academy after nearly three straight years of education.

The 4,000+ officers will now be designated the rank of “lieutenant” before they are deployed to several fronts across the country.

According to an Al-Masdar correspondent in Damascus, the new graduates specialized in several military categories, including tank warfare, logistics, technical affairs, air defense, reconnaissance, and electronic warfare.

Another batch of officers are expected to graduate from the Homs Military Academy in April, swelling the Syrian Army’s ranks with well-trained soldiers.

Yeah! Hope they stay safe and peace will be here again, the sooner the better! Thus, there are still scores of dangerous psychos to take out. If there are many mercenaries implied which will make no problems as soon they’re not paid anymore, in fact, they’re even likely to join SAA back (they switched to FSA as they were simply better paid!), the fanatical jihadists are another kind of problem.

I think they should all join after the war finishes , both FSA and the jihadist to form a ´´ voluntary construction detachments´´ ( by that voluntary I mean bullet or work ) , lot of mess needs cleaning , lot of reconstructing needs to be done , save the bullets , let the work kill them .
Bodies could be used in agriculture….as fertilizer , win – win situation !!!

FSA is nothing else than a cover up for many al-Qaeda offshoots.
“( by that voluntary I mean bullet or work ) , lot of mess needs cleaning , lot of reconstructing needs to be done , save the bullets , let the work kill them”
=> Nazis had the same philosophy in Auschwitz, although Zyklon B was mostly preferred to bullets as being cheaper. They had better recycling plans as yours too…

So much for the oft-heard claims that the SAA is an ineffective, broken institution.

Nevertheless, they are still here after 5 years of what is probably the largest scale proxy war ever launched. s**t, 360k shithadists entered the country just from Turkey with the CIA drawing war plans, KSA giving 15k TOWs, all the Gaddafis stockpiles distributed + seizure of a lot of SAA gear, a good hundred tanks bought from Ukraine, ouch! Without the Russian veto at the UNSC, the country would be finished for a while ans some Muslim Brotherhood mofo would rule!
