That was the plan all along, draw them put and blast them to smithereens, with no place to run. They have the blooming desert behind them. Oh! A barrel shoot.

Was forseeable. Now, better not just be happy having repelled them but better consider to track those fleeing. Thus, the roaches claim to have retaken the Amariyah neighbourhood a few minutes ago and to being launching a counter-counter-attack… Seems the abandoned SAM missiles base NW Palmyra is again at the heart of the offensive and if I’m not wrong, it has never been cleansed.

Qatar and Turkey, even Pakistan are serious concerns too. I think I have nice ideas to dev weapons especially taylored to f**k up takfiri efforts… Well, there may be changes in tactics etc but this would be nonetheless between 2 to 10 x force multiplication but also much cheaper to buy… Thus, I make myself no illusions : just consider this : UK renounced having CATOBAR aircraft carriers as fitting catapults was too expensive, right? But they’ll have to spend MUCH more into F-35B (if it ends to work well, LOL!). Buying 4 EMALS would have cost 573M$, in fact,… Read more »
