Fruit of the new alliance

Fruit of the new alliance

Fruit. A strange word to describe extravagantly evil men who are now completely dead. But fruit they are, borne of the new alliance in the Middle East. Arabs and Israelis are the farmers presenting us with this harvest.

Iran’s Losing Major Operatives in Syria

From Revolutionary Guards generals to Hezbollah commanders, Tehran’s agents are being offed at a rapid rate in a foreign war zone.

With the aid of Russian airstrikes, Iranian-backed foreign fighters and a combination of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s regular and militia forces are on the march. Yet Iran and its proxies have taken some significant high-ranking casualties since the start of their recruitment and deployment drives to Syria.

These losses all serve to map out the current offensive being launched in the northwest of the country, including Idlib, Hama, and Aleppo. While other significant losses had been suffered in past engagements, deaths of key members were often more sporadic or concentrated on one group during a specific battle. If the goal is to secure an Assad-led coastal Syrian rump-state, it is coming at high cost to Assad’s Iranian ally.

You need to understand that every Iranian killed is an operative of the Quds Force, the “elite” unit within the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) that undertakes extraterritorial missions. The Quds Force was responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans in Iraq. What’s happening now is that someone is giving up these bastards to Israel.

Update

Even Qassem Suleimani—the head of the Quds Force—is probably dead.

This is a truly amazing list of casualties. Every Iranian and Lebanese bigwig in Syria ends up dead. It’s clear to me that the Russians are powerless to protect Iran; every day another news story proves it.

Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed al-Nahyan on Sunday to discuss security in the Middle East and the conflict in Syria.

The meeting between the two is the highest-level contact between the Kremlin and a Gulf Arab official since Russia began a campaign of air strikes to support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“I welcome the opportunity to talk about … the situation in the region, particularly in light of recent terrorist acts in Turkey,” Putin told Prince Mohammed on the sidelines of the Russian Grand Prix in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.

Which leader looks calm and confident, and which looks sheepish and weaselly?

It wasn’t just that one photo. Putin is having a rough time.

Vlad doesn’t like being told what to do. Iran is losing its best military leaders, and Hezbollah isn’t far behind. There’s no question that the Russians are unable to stop this.

Though you might find it impossible to believe, I think Assad is also giving the Israelis intelligence on the locations of Iranian and Lebanese commanders. The late, unlamented Brigadier General Hossein Hamedani—the Number Two of the Quds Force—was a maniac. He was responsible for smashing the Iranian Green Revolution of 2009 by having internal security forces fire on unarmed protesters.

According to the first article I linked above, Hamedani was a loud-mouthed zealot.

Praising the IRGC and Basij while gloating over the expansive presence Iran had gained in the region, in 2014 Hamedani told Iranian veterans of the Iran-Iraq War, “know that by establishing the Basij the third child of the revolution is being born in Iraq after Syria and Lebanon. It is no longer just Iran that says ‘Down with America.’ All nations are in unison and are shouting the slogan.”

The Basij are Iranian paramilitary thugs.

Basij

They’re used mostly to brutalize Iranian civilians. In true Orwellian fashion, the full name of Sâzmân-e Basij-e Mostaz’afin translates to “The Organization for Mobilization of the Oppressed.” Before his death, Hamedani established an Iraqi Basij. That’s what he meant by “third child of the revolution.” The first child is Hezbollah, the second is the Syrian National Defence Forces, and the third is the Iraqi Basij.

A few weeks ago, I got a message from a Saudi. I have no idea who he is. He said that the real reason Russia went to Syria was to reduce the influence of the Iranians and their proxies. Putin was asked—ordered—to do so by Israel and the Arab League. When the Iranian military presence has been degraded, Israel and the Arab League will overthrow Assad. Tonight I found an Iranian article that lends credence to this notion.

Forget the Syrian army, it’s all Iranian Basij now

A senior Sepah Pasdaran commander has made yet another embarrassing revelation about the extent of the Iranian regime’s military involvement in Syria. Brig. Gen. Hossein Hamedani, who oversees the operations of Sepah Pasdaran (The Iranian Revolutionary Guards) in Syria, claimed in a recent speech that Basij forces have been “established in 14 Syrian provinces.”

In May 2014, Hamedani made a similarly revealing and embarrassing remark when he said Syrian president Bashar al-Assad is “fighting this war [in Syria] as our deputy,” implying that the Iranian regime is the one who is in charge. He also threatened to send more Iranian fighters to Syria, saying 130,000 trained Basij fighters were “ready to be deployed” there if the war escalated further.

The unprecedented comments were reported by Iranian state-controlled news agency Fars News on 4 May 2014, but the report was quickly removed from the agency’s website…

Editor’s comment:

The war in Syria is now essentially an Iranian regime war – not a proxy one but in the most direct sense of the word. The Syrian rebels are mainly fighting the Iranian regime, represented by Sepah Pasdaran and Basij and their foot soldiers, Hezbollah Lebanon and the Iraqi militias.

Syria (or the areas under regime control) is effectively a country occupied by Sepah Pasdaran. Bashar al-Assad is just a puppet who is no longer in charge, and his regime is just a facade. His real masters are the head of Sepah Pasdaran’s operations in Syria Hossein Hamedani and the head of Sepah Qods Qassim Soleimani. Both are the de facto military rulers of Syria. Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei has the final say in all important matters in Syria, just like in Iran.

Our readers may remember what Gen. Qassem Soleimani promised in his (mock) Syria election programme in June 2014:

“I will dismantle the Syrian army and replace it with a much better organised and fully loyal force, the Syrian Sepah Pasdaran. The Syrian army cannot be trusted with major battles, as we’ve seen since the start of the troubles in Syria in March 2011.

“We have already established in Syria the ‘National Defence Forces’, modeled on the Iranian Basij, and they have done a great job. A Syrian Sepah Pasdaran will be a culmination of these efforts to guarantee security for all Syrians.

“Like in Iran, Syria’s Sepah Pasdaran will have the final say. Power should be in the hands of strong military generals who know how to rule, not weak civilian presidents and ministers.”

Quds Force commander Ismail Ali Heydari was killed in Syria during the filming of an Iranian propaganda video.

It’s half an hour long. Since he was among Iranians, Heydari let his real feelings be known.

The mullahs and their proxies revel in being murderers, rapists, torturers, fascists, absolutists, religious fanatics, racists, sadists, mobsters, imperialists, and terrorists.

Because they can’t be saved, they’re being delivered into the hands of their executioners. The world will benefit greatly from their deaths.
