Hezbollah To Intervene in Syria if Assad Needs Help - Nasrallah

Hezbollah Leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said today Hezbollah could intervene in Syrian civil war on Assad’s side if the need arises.

“(Syria) has real friends in the region and the world who will not allow Syria to fall into the hands of America or Israel,” said Nasrallah. (AP, 30 April)

Nasrallah also said that there are now no Iranian forces in Syria but added that Iran can also intervene militarily if the need arises.

“What do you imagine would happen in the future if things deteriorate in a way that requires the intervention of the forces of resistance in this battle?” Nasrallah said.

Syria's opposition accuses Hezbollah of actually fighting alongside Syrian government troops trying to crush the 2-year-old Syrian uprising.

What would the US do if there were Wahabi and Salafi rebels in Germany? It would probably go help the legitimate government. Iran and Hezbollah SHOULD both help Syrian regime clear the country from those filthy pawns of the Aal-e Saud.

All decent people should support the Syrian government against blatant US/Zionist assault on Syria with foreign mercenaries and braindead Salafi-Wahabbi alCIAda terrorists.

Syrian military is doing a very good job in eliminating the Salafi cutthroats hence their false claims about gas use. The pathetic Youtube video was made in a Turkish studio with whipped cream frothing at the mouth.LOL. These Salafi idiots are so stupid to think that any rational person would believe their idiotic claims. In any case, the Syrians do not need foreign military assistance as their military is very good.

If the world led by the U.S-backed militants could, why can't Hezbollah army which is, militarily, considered as the 3rd strongest in the whole region of the Middle East just after the great nation of IRAN and Syria.

After losing 2 wars and bankrupting the economy Americans are isolationist

Washington: Americans are exhibiting an isolationist streak, with majorities across party lines decidedly opposed to US intervention in North Korea or Syria as economic concerns continue to dwarf all other issues, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

Americans thought that now was the time to "concentrate on our own backyard."

Interest in the Syrian conflict has waned, with 39 per cent of those surveyed saying they are following the violence closely, a 15 percentage point drop since a CBS News poll conducted in March, before the Boston Marathon bombings.

Sixty-two per cent of the public say the United States has no responsibility to do anything about the fighting in Syria between government forces and anti-government groups, while just one-quarter disagree. Likewise, 56 per cent say North Korea is a threat that can be contained for now without military action, just 15 per cent say the situation requires immediate US action and 21 per cent say the North is not a threat at all. Iran's nuclear impasse also had a very minimal impact on US public and its perceptions. Most Americans do not perceive Iran as even a minor threat.

Syrian Army clears the Damascus area of FSA terrorists

According to reports in the Lebanese media from well-informed sources, the Syrian regime has known for weeks about the rebels’ plan to storm the capital, involving thousands of Takfiri fighters of all nationalities including Turks and Chechens. The plan was designed to take control of the towns of Harasta and Duma, which would serve as launching pad to attack Damascus.

The rebels sought to seize control of the town Jaramana after a series of bombings targeted its neighborhoods and surroundings as a way to displace residents.

Nevertheless, on the advice of Iranian and Russian intelligence services — allies of the Syrian regime — and in coordination with the Syrian army, a proactive plan was set to counter the attack that was supposed to take place on the morning of the second Saturday of April.

The key point of the Syrian plan was to lure militants into an early battle, dispersing their ranks and then striking them a fatal blow with superior forces. Syrian 4th Armored Division led by General Maher-al-Assad spearheaded the pincer.

The Syrians are becoming very proficient in large scale combined arms operations and closely targeted counter-insurgency operations. The rebels have been routed in most urban areas and are being squeezed in unsustainable enclaves near the Turkish and Jordanian borders. Yesterday, low flying Syrian jets hit a rebel concentration on the Turkish side killing many of the terrorists.

A few days earlier, the Syrian regime carried out a tactical maneuver on the advice of the allied Russian and Iranian intelligence services, according to the following scenario: Strategic weapons were removed from their caches, giving a false impression that they were being transported to a safer place.

However, the chemical-weapons propaganda did not play out to the advantage of the militants; rather, it negatively affected their combat performance.

Other sources also indicated that the plan was designed to spread misleading information about widespread defections in the ranks of the Syrian regime's forces protecting Damascus. Moreover, false reports suggested that Syrian troops have been reported to be completely broken and Damascus was open for assault. Because of this, news spread about the downfall of key centers and bases in the capital and major desertions in the ranks of the army.

All this prompted rumor prone militants to mobilize on the outskirts of the capital and launch an early attack. The rumors spread by the Syrian regime itself gave insurgents an incentive to attack Damascus immediately. What promoted the theory of the collapse of the Syrian army in the capital was the swift progress by rebels within a few days without having met any significant resistance, as the Syrian army had vacated a number of its military positions.

The maneuver was designed to cause a rift between militant groups and their supply lines. The FSA terrorists, including large number of foreign fighters were lulled into a preemptive strike and rushed headlong into a Syrian kill zone where they were decimated by airstrikes, helicopter gunships and mobile armor. Syrians successfully destroyed major rebel units and captured large amounts of western supplied weaponry.

Sources described the assault on Damascus as the largest and most severe since the beginning of the Syrian crisis. Armed groups fell into the trap set by the Syrian troops, who have been receiving extensive training in Russia and Iran on how to launch counter offensives on armed terrorist gangs. Both Russian and Iranian militaries have extensive experience in counter-insurgency operations.

It must be noted that Russia and Iran have agreements with the Syrian government on strategic cooperation and exchange of technical and security expertise.

The recent successful Syrian offensives have thrown the rebels into disarray and they are now resorting to urban terrorism as Syrian government tightens its noose around the battered FSA and foreign terrorist groups.

dear doormat, even given the utterly bizarro claims that you usually make, this one is incredibly and utterly stupid.

You silly hasbara boy! There are barely 50% Persians in multi-cultural Iran. In any case, the Syrians are doing a good job of defeating the US/Zionist Takfiri terrorists.

President Assad confidently drives around Damascus

Assad’s visit to the Umayyad Electrical Station in the Tishrin Park district came on International Workers Day, or May Day. State TV showed the Syrian leader, confident and wearing a dark business suit, addressing the station’s staff and later shaking their hands. Similar still images also appeared on a page used by the Syrian presidency on the popular social network Facebook. “They want to scare us, we will not be scared … They want us to live underground, we will not live underground,” Assad told a group of workers who had gathered around him. “We hope that by this time next year we will have overcome the crisis in our country,” he added.

Considering their effectiveness in 2006,I`d say they are one of the most potent and effective military forces in the region,after all they managed to achieve a hell of a lot more than the arabs did in three wars.Countries like saudi may look formidible on paper but then so did gaddafi in the seventies or saddam in the eighties yet both suffered humiliating defeats despite considerable foreign backing,I don`t doubt that the same would be true for saudi or qatar or any of the other arab puppets

Prof. Rodney Shakespeare, a Cambridge MA, a qualified UK Barrister, a co-founder of the Global Justice Movement and a member of the Christian Council for Monetary Justice says the truth is that the U.S. government is just stupid. He gives the U.S.'s four stupidities right below here:

The first stupidity is claiming knowledge of a country without having an embassy there. Missing a prime source of information, the U.S.’s analysis and understanding of IRAN is not only wrong but over thirty years out of date.

The second stupidity is letting prejudice get in the way of objective analysis. Even when the U.S. does receive real information it wrecks the value of that information by viewing it through the prism of ignorance and spite.

The third stupidity is thinking that sanctions will stop IRAN’s progress in civilian nuclear energy or in anything else. Nothing will stop that progress. Besides, more and more nations are quietly making agreements with IRAN.

The fourth stupidity is thinking it can bully Iran into a grovelling submission. Which is a big mistake because when the Iranians see that they are being bullied, exactly the opposite happens - Iranian resolve is strengthened, national pride is doubled and even more effort is put into forwarding the Revolution.

But there is news for the stupid U.S. The celebrations of the Iranian Revolution in February (when there were many millions on the streets of the cities) should have been the clue that the Iranians support their country. It’s as simple as that and they despise the U.S. for thinking that it could be any different.

In short, the Iranians are a proud people with a civilised history going back many centuries before the time the U.S. stopped slaughtering Native Americans (just over one hundred years ago). Iranians simply are not amenable to being bullied.

He further stresses that the American government should grow up. But it seems it can’t. Like some ogre in a fairy tale it is doomed to behave badly for ever.

*The question here is: Is the U.S. itself stupid enough to please or favour its life-term master, the Zionist Regime State of Israel?

perhaps, mat, you could tell us who Rodney Shakespeare is respected by, other than PRESS-TV touts?

or you could give us a short employment history for the man. I can't seem to find any reference to him ever having held a job.

All those ranting that Assad can freely walk around Damascus or the Assad regime will win this civil war are only deluding themselves.
Him and his regime will go for sure.It is only a matter of time and effort but never the less the regime will go eventually!

Buoyed by successes, Syrian government pushes to retake rebel-held city of Homs

Homs lies along a key highway that connects Damascus with the coastal city of Latakia, a regime stronghold. Syrian Army troops are advancing on the rebel-held city of Homs, preparing for a push to retake the city that has been dubbed the "beating heart of the revolution" and been in terrorist hands for more than a year.

As the Associated Press notes, President Bashar al-Assad seems confident that the conflict is turning in his favor and has been emboldened by the clear Western reluctance to intervene as Islamist extremist groups rise in prominence within the opposition. Opposition-allied extremist group Jabhat al-Nusra's pledge to Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri earlier this month has been a blow to opposition support abroad. Most of the Jihadi groups comprise foreign fighters who seem to have lost their appetite for a fight in face of determined government assaults.

President Assad's invigorated regime has gone on the offensive both on the ground and in its portrayal of the conflict as a choice between Assad and the extremists.

Several factors appear to have convinced Assad he can weather the storm: Two years into the uprising against the government, his regime remains firmly entrenched in Damascus, the military remained intact with not even minor defections, and key international supporters Russia, Iran and China are still solidly on his side.

"I can say, without exaggeration, that the situation in Syria now is better than it was at the beginning of the crisis," Mr. Assad said in a television interview on April 17, according to AP. "With time, people became more aware of the dangers of what was happening.... They started to gain a better understanding of the real Syria we used to live in and realized the value of the safety, security, and harmony, which we used to enjoy."
