Wow, great find op!
Since the refugees started pouring into Europe, and the daily reporting on that, I have been wondering why we never SEE any reporting from Syria, where many of them come from. We just get updates on the territory gained by ISIS and the opinions of Obama, Cameron, Putin, Assad, etc.
Are there no independent journalists on the ground in Syria, or even MSM journalists? Are they being kept out somehow?
The US has axed its $500m (£326m) programme to train and equip moderate Syrian rebels to fight Islamic State in another move highlighting western failures as Russia seizes the initiative by launching direct military intervention in support of Bashar al-Assad.
A senior US Department of Defense official said there would no longer be any more recruiting of moderate Syrian rebels to go through training programmes in Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates. Instead, a much smaller training centre would be set up in Turkey, where a small group of “enablers” – mostly leaders of opposition groups – would be taught operational methods such as how to call in airstrikes, the paper reported.
As the operation in the west pushed ahead, Islamic State said its fighters had captured five villages in its northern offensive and killed more than 10 soldiers or militiamen.The British-based Observatory said it was the biggest advance by Islamic State since it launched an offensive against rival rebels in the Aleppo countryside near the Turkish border in late August.
"Daesh has exploited the Russian air strikes and the preoccupation of the (rebel) Free Syrian Army in its battles in Hama, and advanced in Aleppo," said one rebel commander with fighters in the region, using an Arabic name for IS.
Here he sends this message to the American sheep You SEE ISIS has captured more land all while Russia bombs are dropping. If this article isn’t propaganda, misinformation, disinformation then the moon is made of green cheese
