Here Comes War! Putin Drafts 150,000 – Iran Prepares Ground Assault Into Syria [Video]

Full fledged war is now upon Syria as Assad goes after the US-backed rebels and supposedly, ISIS. Putin just conscripted 150,000 soldiers into the Russian military, as jets bomb rebel-held areas in Syria for a second day. Russia has blitzed dozens of targets in Syria, but none so far are ISIS strongholds. The Muslim Chechens want to fight in the conflict as well. The US was given one hour’s notice of the strikes and were told to get out of Syrian airspace. And here come the Iranians who are now preparing a ground attack in Syria. Hundreds of Iranian troops have arrived in Syria in the last 10 days and will soon join government forces and their Lebanese Hezbollah allies in a major ground offensive backed by Russian air strikes. It will be an all-out offensive against Islamists. But don’t look for this to end in Syria. I contend this is just the beginning that heralds a World War.

From Business Insider:

BEIRUT (Reuters) – Hundreds of Iranian troops have arrived in Syria in the last 10 days and will soon join government forces and their Lebanese Hezbollah allies in a major ground offensive backed by Russian air strikes, two Lebanese sources told Reuters.

“The (Russian) air strikes will in the near future be accompanied by ground advances by the Syrian army and its allies,” said one of the sources familiar with political and military developments in the conflict.

“It is possible that the coming land operations will be focused in the Idlib and Hama countryside,” the source added.

The two sources said the operation would be aimed at recapturing territory lost by President Bashar al-Assad’s government to rebels.

It points to an emerging military alliance between Russia and Assad’s other main allies – Iran and Hezbollah – focused on recapturing areas of northwestern Syria that were seized by insurgents in rapid advances earlier this year.

“The vanguard of Iranian ground forces began arriving in Syria: soldiers and officers specifically to participate in this battle. They are not advisors … we mean hundreds with equipment and weapons. They will be followed by more,” the second source said. Iraqis would also take part in the operation, the source said.

Thus far, direct Iranian military support for Assad has come mostly in the form of military advisors. Iran has also mobilized Shi’ite militia fighters, including Iraqis and some Afghans, to fight alongside Syrian government forces.

Lebanon’s Hezbollah, which is backed by Iran, has been fighting alongside the Syrian army since early in the conflict.

The Russian air force began air strikes in Syria on Wednesday, targeting areas near the cities of Homs and Hama in the west of the country, where Assad’s forces are fighting an array of insurgent groups, though not Islamic State, which is based mostly in the north and east.

An alliance of insurgent groups including the al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front and powerful Ahrar al-Sham made rapid gains in Idlib province earlier this year, completely expelling the government from the area bordering Turkey.

The Russian air strikes will in the near future be accompanied by ground advances by the Syrian army and its allies. The operation will be aimed at recapturing territory lost by President Bashar al-Assad’s government to rebels. It points to a military alliance between Russia and Assad’s other main allies – Iran and Hezbollah – focused on recapturing areas of northwestern Syria that were seized by insurgents in rapid advances earlier this year. The vanguard of Iranian ground forces began arriving in Syria: soldiers and officers specifically to participate in this battle. They are not advisers. Hundreds with equipment and weapons have landed. They will be followed by more. This is a game changer for the Russian Bear and elevates them militarily on the global stage. Syria will be the gateway to the Middle East for Putin and Iran. It will also open doors of conquest in Europe. The war we have all feared is upon us. Do not look to Putin as a savior, he is a conqueror with no pity and no remorse. Behind the scenes, look for Obama to support Putin and Iran, regardless of what he says.
