It’s funny, when folks talk about the items to take back in time to win a battle, they often talk about bigger guns, or air power. In reality the single thing that could change the course of a war is better means of communication.
It’s not bigger and badder guns....it’s coordination.
A lesson to be learned here.
while Moscow and Washington both sounded downbeat about the prospects of a diplomatic push to end the conflict after talks.
What would a negotiated end look like? Everything would go back to the way it was with Assad able to move around killing the now former rebels with impunity. The only ones who would want a negotiated settlement would be the ones who are losing. They would use the time to fix their problems and then resume the killing.
Washington, Moscow, sometimes you just have to let the patient heal himself.
Looks like the the Arab countries that didn’t line up with OBL and support al-Qaeda at the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom have experienced coups. The world is sure in a pickle thanks to these Arabs and their concession of fossil fuels.
Thanks to the dependance on enemy oil the US is a hostage and used as a military puppet to maintain the status-quo for the Mideast oil rich oil nations.
It’s either that or say good by to the acceptance of the petro-dollar and life as we know it. Cue up the Doors ‘this is the end’ we have entered the time of wars without end.
-——Armed rebels are co-ordinating better——
Translation....... Professional military officers/noncoms from the GCC/Turkey are leading the rebel units. The special forces trained by US Special forces to lead and take adhoc rebel forces into battle are making headway
