I absolutely love being right.
I've said for a long time that al-Qaeda in Syria--now known as Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS)--is actually commandos from the Gulf Cooperation Council.
Listen to THIS:
THIS is where all the hard work pays off.
An interim government will replace HTS in Idlib.
This is the beginning of the end for Assad.
Do you know WHY Turkey, Iran, and Russia are agreeing to this?
In January of this year, HTS dealt the Turks the worst military defeat they'd suffered since World War One.
The Turks had gathered together all the Islamist rebels under the National Liberation Front.
The Turks were strutting proud.
Well, it was a trap.
The Turks were lured deeper and deeper into Syria.
On January 1, 2019, HTS launched TWENTY-ONE simultaneous ground offensives.
By January 10, 2019, virtually all the Islamist rebels were dead.
The worst group was Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki.
They were as savage as the Islamic State.
OBAMA supported them.
Trump ended the support.
And HTS killed them all. Zenki was racing to the city of Afrin, when the front of the convoy was bombed.
Does HTS have air power?!
Of course not. But HTS is professional commandos.
This is the abandoned Zenki convoy.
As the terrorists ran to Afrin, they were all killed with mortars, machine guns, sniper fire, and antitank guided missiles.
That was the end of Turkish imperialism in Syria.
The Iranians and Russians watched the slaughter, and now everyone has agreed to a truce AND a post-Assad future.
Note that ASSAD wasn't invited to the conference.
If HTS were al-Qaeda, would they agree to disband after wiping out their enemies?
Of course not.
The first commando unit in Syria was Jaysh al-Thuwar.
In November of 2015, they were killing Islamists with advanced weaponry.
In Syria, the Gulf Cooperation Council took over al-Qaeda FIRST.
All the al-Qaeda emirs were killed by unidentified gunmen, and the founder fled the country.
So Abu Mohammed al-Julani took over.
Nothing is known about his background.
I always though he looked too NICE to be a terrorist.
He's the only "Islamist" rebel emir left alive from 2011.
Obama used the pre-failed plan of arming and training rebels.
The CIA and the Pentagon trained different groups who ended up fighting each other.
Trump stopped it all.
But the Saudis fooled Obama. They pretended to arm and train rebels, but in fact they were putting their own men in place.
They "hollowed out" the Islamist rebel groups.
The Saudi and allied commandos operate in a totally unprecedented manner.
These are Islamists pinned down by machine gun fire.
As they lie there, a commando runs among them, throwing hand grenades.
Show it to a friend of mine who is active duty and a combat veteran. Video kind of makes his eye twitch. He points out things to me that shows how authentic it is.
Like how you can see the bullets ripping through the trees pinning those guys down.
He makes this face every time he sees the guy running with the grenades...
@ThomasWic he told me there's no way that any of our guys would ever be allowed to do something like that. They only let the really special, special forces do that kind of shit. You know the ones that don't exist
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
