Someone asked me to school @eugenegu.

Here goes.

The Syrians rose up on March 15, 2011. Assad's security forces opened fire on them the same day.

@eugenegu Assad also used Alawite murderers known as shabiha or "ghosts."

They kidnapped dissidents and tortured them to death, returning their bodies to their families.
@eugenegu As always happens during unrest in the Middle East, Islamists arrived and took on the government.

The goal of the Islamists was to make Assad kill as many people as possible, when would make him even more unpopular.
@eugenegu The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) was very poorly trained, since it was used only to oppress the people.

A large percentage of the SAA defected and became the Free Syrian Army (FSA), which allied with Islamists.

Al-Qaeda in Syria was formed as the al-Nusra Front.
@eugenegu Then the Islamic State arrived.

In 2013, the US, the UK, France, Turkey, and the Saudis set up the Military Operations Center (MOC) in Amman, Jordan. It trained Syrian rebels.

Obama's CIA and Pentagon had two different training programs. Both were failures.
@eugenegu While the US engaged in our usual pre-failed strategy, the Gulf Cooperation Council did its own thing.

This was the first combat use of Arab commandos in Syria.

@eugenegu The Kurds in Kobane faced about 10,000 Islamic State terrorists armed with main battle tanks and heavy artillery.

Although Obama allowed air strikes, he didn't sent Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTACs), airmen on the ground who direct the strikes.
@eugenegu Our air strikes were therefore very ineffectual.

But within two weeks, every Islamic State emir or commander in the area was dead.

The Kurds and their support took back Kobane.

This is a guy in ghillie suit firing some kind of missile. Not a Kurd.
@eugenegu So while WE failed nonstop, the Saudis and their allies pretended to do as we asked.

We wanted the rebels to have BGM-71 TOW antitank guided missiles, which were sent.

But guess what?
@eugenegu Every single TOW missile launcher in Syria lacked a thermal sight.

That means they would be almost useless in dusty, smoky, foggy, and rainy conditions.

And THAT means they were props. The "rebels" were actors.
@eugenegu Besides, TOW gunners have to practice endlessly.

Simply firing causes the gunner to lose sight of the missile.

A gunner has to be tested once a month. You think we did that in Syria?
@eugenegu But since Obama, his CIA, and his Pentagon knew nothing about anything, the Saudis were able to PRETEND that they were arming rebels.

In reality, the Saudis and their allies sent commandos who POSED as rebels. They wiped out the Islamists.

AND.
@eugenegu They wiped out the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Hezbollah, the Syrian Defense Forces, the Afghan Fatemiyoun Brigades, the Iraqi militias, and the Shi'ite Foreign Legion.

And the Russians.
@eugenegu All of this was done to prevent the disaster of Iraq.

In October of 2015, the Kurds agreed to have Arab commandos attached to them.

This is November of 2015. Jaysh al-Thuwar is actually commandos from the Gulf Cooperation Council.

@eugenegu Initially the Iranians and Russians pushed the Syrians aside and tried to implement the Algerian Strategy: make the enemy so strong that the people have no choice but to support the unpopular government.

You know what happened?
@eugenegu The Russians kept bombing Hezbollah and the Iranians.

And since literally not one armed force on Assad's side was trained to fight insurgents, they were slaughtered.

I can't post the videos because they're too gruesome.

Everyone fighting for Assad was cannon fodder.
@eugenegu By late 2016, NOT ONE VIDEO COMING FROM SYRIA showed real combat.

Only the attacks on the Turks were real. This is the THIRD Turkish invasion.

This time, they're using the Syrian National Army, the former Free Syrian Army.

They're all going to die.
@eugenegu Did you know that from January 1 to 10, 2018, the Turks lost ALL their jihadists in northwest Syria?

Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS)--the former al-Qaeda--launched 21 simultaneous ground offensives and destroyed the Turkish-led National Front for Liberation.
@eugenegu This is the convoy of one of the worst terrorist groups in Syria: Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki.

Obama armed them.

The Gulf Cooperation Council killed them all.

@eugenegu See, even al-Qaeda in Syria was replaced with commandos.

Everything happening NOW was planned years ago.

The Kurds and the Syrians are united, but you can be sure that Assad is going to go after the war finally ends.

Under Assad, Kurds had no rights.
@eugenegu The Syrian Arab Army we see now is not the SAA of 2011.

They're taking back Syria with the help of the Gulf Cooperation Council--which is also helping the Kurds.

The GCC pulled a fast one on Obama and his idiot CIA Director, the guy who looks like a special effect.
@eugenegu @realDonaldTrump is the first American president to treat other countries as equals.

THAT is why stability is coming to the Middle East.

It won't happen until the Iranians rise up and overthrow the mullahs.

Trump knows that the ball is in the Iranians' court.
@eugenegu @realDonaldTrump SUDAN did it.

Remember Sudan?

The people rose up, the army joined in, someone tried to derail it, and they all asked TRUMP for help.

We sent Donald Booth, and EVERYONE agreed to a deal.

In SUDAN.
@eugenegu @realDonaldTrump Trump said in 1980 that one man could turn around this country.

@eugenegu @realDonaldTrump It turns out that one person can turn around THE WORLD.

All it takes is the ability to listen.

Trump is the first president to really listen.

We left Syria because we were asked to do so. The GCC will rebuild Syria and protect the Kurds.
@eugenegu @realDonaldTrump The reason Putin is being welcomed in Riyadh and Dubai is that he's agreed to cooperate.

He had to have his butt kicked first, but better late than ever.

Obama and his flock of dopes were utterly incapable of accomplishing anything good or lasting. They were too corrupt.
@eugenegu @realDonaldTrump The Syrian Civil War is almost over, and we can thank the Saudis and Trump.

Obama prolonged it.

Trump is helping bring it to a close.

Blessed are the peacemakers, doc.
