The first video show the training of young boys to increase their training in strength and endurance not in counter intelligence or warfare just to be stronger. The second video is just a babbling idiot with no facts just his opinion,it is rather comical.

Knowing the first video and what Spetsnaz is and then hearing him talk about them as special forces,[playing on the words, you would think this elite group are going to take on the Al Qaeda and defeat them, not true. These are just boys, some of which are hired by security firms and some go on to army but this is not a special elite force of the army and are not in Syria.

It has been reported that Russian special forces have been in Syria for quite some time now, and it is quite understandable because the Russians have a naval military base on Syrian soil that the Russians would absolutely defend. With AlQaedad terrorists mixed in with these Syrian rebels, the Russians would definitely want to undermine them to prevent an assault or terrorist attack on their base, and to assure that the Syrian regime survives so that the Russia can maintain their strategic military base on Syrian soil.

The right medicine...special units trained for fighting terrorist, logical. Similar to an aggressive virus on the computer that can destroy sensitive information and even precious hardware devices. You first have to disable or stop the process from functioning then you can repair the problem.

Seen a few botched beheading attempt pics from rebel vids and pics.Always seem to use blunt Swiss army knives for their beheadings, swords or machetes must be for rich people.Some vids with guys chanting takfir which would be easy to fake but the suicide bombings seem a bit of a giveaway.

Al-Qaeda infiltrating Syrian opposition, U.S. officials say

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-...

Members of al-Qaeda have infiltrated Syrian opposition groups, and likely executed recent bombings in the nation’s capital and largest city, the United States’ top intelligence official said Thursday.

The remarks by Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper are the most definitive to date from a senior Obama administration official on al-Qaeda’s efforts to insert itself into the Syrian uprising.

Spare me the silly childish nonsense! The Paid Assad Propagandist assclown is baaaaaack!! The real question is??? Why aren't you nutcases in Syria, fighting alongside all of your Assad murdering buddies? Hiding out in your free countries as a paid Assad lying sock puppets?? Assad has a short leash on everyone that why you clowns aren't there!! Funny how you clowns live in a countries that grants you all the freedom in the world to write your ignorant filthy lies and propaganda while bashing that same country and Israel. The Syrian people have no freedom so what do you clowns do? You stand up for a ruthless Assad Dictator!! An to top it off, somehow Israel is involved who does not give al-Qaeda orders and never has!! Most civilized countries have elections so when you have brutal Dictators like China, Syria, Iran and the list goes on there is no way to get rid of the tyrants other than by force!! The people are stuck with their ruthless Dictators their whole lives and then when that clown passes, daddy appoints another ruthless Dictator and this is an endless cycle! It's like a nightmare that will not go away!! I don't blame the people one bit!! Ask yourself why these clowns living in other countries are not worried one iota!! They are Paid Assad Sock Puppets! Period!
China supports Syria and guess what? There is NO freedom in China to how many children you can have to the Internet!

Wow, we have a party with the British special forces, france, Turkey, saudi and Qatar all sending special forces for training seem to all be in syria and almost 50% of Syria is not under Assad control,ouch.

Now do you understand when I said I wonder is Assad is trying to figure out where the Rebels are, I mean of the 50 he kills only 2 are Rebels the rest are women and children, he cannot be that stupid, so these guys just walk right up and take the territory.
