Good day and today is election day and all eyes will be on the gutless pricks that are running for control….NO one will be watching the Middle East….well No one but me and that is why your information is far superior than that of the MSM….I will try to be brief…I would not want to impair my fellow Americans from making the wrong decisions.
Shall we begin the briefing?
Item 1–There has been a wealth of support and a wealth condemnation over this whole ISIS situation……and it just keeps getting wilder…..
Major losses on both the Iraqi and Syrian sides of the ISIS conflict emerged over the weekend, with ISIS routing a pro-Iraqi govt Sunni tribe and massacring hundreds of them, while Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s wing in Syria, forced a key US-allied moderate rebel faction to surrender.
The Pentagon is trying to downplay the problems, despite these both being clearly huge defeats for their strategy in the ever-escalating war, and is mostly falling back on semantic arguments to deflect concerns.
Clarity of the situation is in short supply…..will it get better?
Item 2–ISIS is working hard to control as many resources of funds as possible…….
After pushing back into the Sha’ar Gas Field late last week, ISIS seems to be continuing their offensive in the Homs Province, now taking the nearby Jahar field.
ISIS posted photos showing their flag flying over the Jahar field today online, and also posted photos they claimed were Syrian vehicles and weaponry seized during the battle to take the site.
Item 3–US is considering attacking another ‘rebel’ group…….
U.S. officials are weighing whether to broaden the air campaign in Syria to strike a militant group that is a rival to the Islamic State and that is poised to take over a strategically vital corridor from Turkey.
Extremists from the al-Qaeda-linked Jabhat al-Nusra group were said Monday to be within a few miles of the Bab al-Hawa crossing in northwestern Syria on the Turkish border, one of only two openings through which the moderate Free Syrian Army receives military and humanitarian supplies provided by the United States and other backers.
That might be a good idea considering al-Nusra has joined forces with ISIS on occasions…..
Item 4–the attempt by the Coalition of getting the Sunni tribes to sign onto another “awakening” is hitting a few snags….
The prospects of a new Iraqi Sunni “awakening” to combat the Islamic State (IS) are being stifled by the terrorist group’s brutal and effective intelligence operation, according to Ali Mamouri.
Mamouri writes from Iraq: “The Islamic State differs from its predecessors and similar groups by running a powerful intelligence apparatus that is strong and has plenty of security experience acquired by intelligence officers from the previous regime. The IS intelligence apparatus carries out various types of operations, similar to other intelligence apparatuses around the world. One of its most important operations is to monitor and identify its opponents, to eliminate them immediately and to avoid the possibility of the Iraqi government, and other local and regional opposing parties, to infiltrate its intelligence apparatus, or a military opposition to emerge on its territory.”
Today’s briefing is a short one…….after all it is election day and everyone should get out and vote!
Thanx for your time and attention……
