Hezbollah fighting in Syria to help Assad regime, Times

Hezbollah flag- assad posterArmed with AK47s, sniper rifles and rocket-propelled grenades, the fighters in the video crouch and open fire as they patrol a war-damaged and abandoned Damascus district. In their camouflage uniforms, there seems to be little at first glance to distinguish them from the regime troops pounding rebel forces in the bloody fight for Syria.

But these men are said to be members of Lebanon’s Hezbollah militant group and Iraqi Shiites according to a report by the Times. According to the report the foreign fighters are fighting to help Syrian president Bashar al Assad in defending  the Shiite Shrines in southern Damascus, which underlines the increasing sectarian nature of the war.

    Iran succeeded in making this war about Shite and Sunni, ultimately Bashar will be removed and HA wil be the biggest losers along with the Iraqi shite. What a gloomy picture for the future of this region inorder for these mullahs to keep their power

      I doubt it the Syrian war mite expand outwards toward the gulf puppet dictator regimes, I see Iran and the Majority of Iraq’s 33 million plus taking on the Terror funding Zionist puppet state of Saudi Arabia.

        Moe, I pretty much see the same thing, Except I also see these Salifi/Wahabi terrorist animals
        swimming in their own blood with Bani Hashim standing over them with
        satisfaction. Inshallah

    With his support from Russia and Iran, his advantage in heavy equipment, complete air supremacy, no Western air campaign, the Alawite composition of the Army, the transformation of this war into a sectarian one pitting ,Alawites, Christians and Druze against Sunni Arabs (with the Kurds staying out), and his willingness to be absolutely brutal, I’d say that the smart money is on Assad being President next year. This war could drag on for years: the civil war in Lebanon lasted 15 years. The civil war in Algeria lasted 11 years. At the very least this is a stalemate; most of the Western reports about Assad’s regime being on its last legs are wishful thinking or propaganda taken as gospel from rebel groups: apparently his regime has been on its “last legs” for 24 months.

      Very true and unbiased comment, It would be best for a peaceful resolution in Syria but foreign backers like Saudi Arabia stated there would be no peaceful resolution.

      • FreetheME1

        And because Saudi Arabia refuses a peaceful resolution, they will have to face the ramification for that stupid decision.

          Moe&Free, You two are having a wahabi/salafi chopping party on your own,lol

          Don’t hate them ,just wish them some guidance for their own good,and for humanity’s good.The democracy loving,and freedom champions of the Saud house of corruption and hypocrisy will pay for their mistakes, this is like we say in the south, “brought the bear to his own crop”.They are creating monsters who will turn against them one day.That day isn’t too far away.
          Isn’t it sad that an alliance between a corrupt house and a wicked clergy hijacked the entire Muslim faith? A tiny( 1 to 2 % at most) minority who follow a wicked interpretation of Islam are corrupting poor Muslims in other countries with their money and deciding for the greatest majority of Muslims, Sunni and Shiia, what Islam should be like?
          Habibi Free, take the high road,and refrain from using terms that could fuel sectarian discussion and hatred. You are well informed,and you have enough facts ,and good ways of expressing them in your arguments without needing to engage in arguments that serve no purpose,but rather dilutes the value of your good argument. Be the good example you are capable of. It is easy to loose your cool,and get provoked at this forum. I hope I didn’t offend you, I just wanted to give you a brotherly advice.
          If you can’t help people, do not hurt them.
          If you can’t cheer them, do not depress them
          If you can’t stand by them, do not rejoice at their misfortune
          If you can’t praise them, do not badmouth them
          Always remember that we’re all brothers and sisters in humanity, and life is way too short.

            Sorry Prophet, I can’t but hate them.
            When these pigs slaughter a human like he or she is an animal, hate is the bare minimum I can have for them. Btw, you are more than welcome to join myself, Moe and millions of other brothers and sisters in the chopping party. I have nominated myself as the President of them and I am looking for a deputy. LOL
