    For those who are following Syria closely, the Russian MOD has released a precise briefing and presser with Eng. Subs. Three top generals explain the background negotiations to establish cooperation from all parties and stakeholders in the Syrian War. They explain the four zones of de-escalation. And they indicate that the Russian MOD has had discussions with all the volatile nations that might be thinking of violating the situation.

    There is very precise language used and very precise planning and steps ahead.

    The purpose is to normalize the four zones with millions of people, make the zones safe from land mines and IEDs, provide humanitarian, medical and economic aid.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cF-gIL8yzk (click CC on bottom right of the video controls and go full screen. The subtitles are in small font at the bottom. Easy to read in full scree).

    I would point out that the notice has been given to Israel, Jordan, Saudi from the MOD. This isn’t diplomatic stuff. It’s Russian military talking. They also indicate the US is backing the agreement.

    Also, they answer a question about Russian Air Force continuing. In the answer the General indicates the highest level agreement for de-confliction with US Air Forces is not back in force.
    Though they have low level talk when US flies to give the Russians heads up. But the highest level system is not back in place. (US media and government has indicated otherwise that Rex got this reinstated. Not so.)

    Also, note the answer from the General about violators of the de-escalation ceasefire. He said that they will investigate any violations and then “neutralize the violators with fire”.

    Take the time to watch it all. You can see the seriousness of the trio of generals and the meticulous work they have done and intend to do with this plan. The time frame for full implementation is two more months. It’s very fraught with problems. They are also trying to get all the major countries to be involved in monitoring and securing the zones. Presently, Russia, Turkey and Iran are the guarantors. Syrian is in agreement with it all and gives permission to go forward with these four zones.

    The fight against ISIS and al Nusra will be get much more intense as this de-escalation plan goes forward. It will free Syrian and Russian forces to concentrate on the large formations of radicals in various sectors beyond the de-escalation zones.

      So we are going to agree to Russia,Iran and Turkey running Syria with current Syrian leadership and everyone else has no say or did I get this wrong…

      • Bull Durham says:

        The Syrian negotiations, beyond the de-escalation zones, are for a new Constitution, a new Parliament elections, new empowerment of various ethnic regions, but a Syria with its recognized borders and no autonomous regions or separatist regions, like a Kurdistan.

        So you have less information than you need to make a judgment.

        As for who has a say, I suppose you can say that Turkey, Iran, Russia, and the US, Jordan and Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar have a say. They can all keep fighting. That’s their only “say”. The Syrian people will have the “real say”. They also “say” the Russians are doing the right things and they back Putin and the Russian military. So, Syrians and the Russians will have the “say”.

        All the others can keep making chaos. But they won’t have much say. They have had seven years of war to make their “say”. Time for them to stop and help the process of ceasefire, humanitarian aid, de-mining, and conclude the fight against ISIS and al Nusra so the Islamic radicals are obliterated.

      Thank you. Will watch, is worth the time for knowledge.

      Interesting analysis here (below) of the recent Russia-Turkey-Iran alliance and “Syria de-escalation zones” proposal. It appears that POTUS’ actions re: Syria have been exactly the correct ones. The comments to the linked post back up that opinion. Short read. Turcopolier has some good street creds.

      “IMO the “de-escalation zones” are a clever trick. Thank God.”

          Trump is walking a razors edge to get the impossible passed legislatively. Some finesse, some tricks, and some blood (which he is doing his best to minimize). We almost were too late to turn back from the brink, with a ways to go still to get past the critical stages.

          Trump had to go to NJ to find a home unbugged. Even still crucial conversations have to be protected. Watch out for long-distance lip reading.

          Some think that NK will need regime change in the end, very soon, because Kim is stuck on Nukes. China may be the one to clean it up, but Kim likely knows that is where it will come. I dunno when. I think China did not expect Kim to survive to this point after his fathers death. Plan B.

    Destroy them or let them Destroy Us.

    The choice is easy: it’s either let the Fake News continue to try and destroy President Trump along with the United States or destroy them with the Rule of Law

    Everywhere you go on the internet there is fake News regarding President Trump…its seems to be getting worse. I believe it’s been reported that President Trump can’t pay for advertising on CNN, ABC, NBC and CBS regarding his 100 day accomplishments. There is news breaking regarding Twitter censoring all news that is negative regarding Macron in France. Hillary states she is back. Etc.

    Is the Clinton’s/Left/Media/Globalist/Elitist trying to destroy President Trump by planting fake evidence to throw him and his family in jail and destroying the United States by fake news…is President Trump going to win the war by using the Rule of Law, which will save the United States. When hearing fake news trying to destroy President Trump and his Family and the United States showing the Clinton’s/Left/ Media/Globalist/Elitist their true intent; this should give President Trump/Sessions the will power for Justice (several Grand Juries Investigation). President Trump’s Snake Story tells us his plan. As upsetting as it is to hear fake news every minute of the day trying to destroy President Trump and make the United States a 3rd World Country…we should take some comfort that their fake News and Corrupt Actions should push President Trump and Session for Justice. President Trump Supporters should continue to Demand Justice.

      Fake news is dying. “The Walking Dead” gets more viewers for a single episode than all the nightly news and big 3 news channels get in a week. If it weren’t for airports, CNN would have no viewers at all. People are dropping cable and newspapers like hot potatoes. Streaming channels a la cart is gaining momentum. Without big bundled cable, the cable news networks will die. WSJ attacked a youtuber (PewDiePie) who has 50 million subscribers. Why? Because he’s a threat to them. They won’t be able to contain citizen journalist or opposing opinion. They try and fail all the time. It’s only a matter of time before Facebook (like Myspace before it) and Youtube are replaced with free speech alternatives. The cable news networks will either report the news or die with their biased opinions.

    BSG was stripped of its mining rights when it refused to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to keep its mining license, according to the suit, which further alleges Soros enlisted Obama’s Department of Justice to investigate BSG.

    Soros has denied all the allegations. A Soros spokesperson told Fox News BSG is trying to divert attention from its own legal issues.

    California Attorney General Xavier Becerra apparently doesn’t think that $858 million is nearly enough taxpayer money to fight the Trump administration. That is precisely the amount that California’s state budget proposal, laid out by Governor Jerry Brown in January, allocated to Becerra’s Justice Department but in testimony before the Senate Budget committee yesterday Becerra said he needs even more to attract and keep qualified lawyers to defend the state.

        If Univ. students had even 10% of a brain, they’d be protesting this, en masse. I can’t imagine, especially with tuition so high now, that students who have to pay will be happy with this.
