North Korean Soldiers Assist Assad in the War Against the Syrian People.
7/20/2015 At 09:21 AM
Activists and eyewitnesses confirmed that 5 buses full of fully armed Korean soldiers were seen in the capital Damascus, heading towards Jobar and Eastern Ghouta.
It's not the first time Assad has used korean, not to mention the Shiite and Asian militias, fo fight in his side, Many media sources confirmed that korean soldiers from what is called Tshulima units has been assigned as Assad's personal details two years ago, after the large advance opposition forces achieved inside the capital Damascus.
Tshulima special unit has soldiers with very high training and was called that name after a mythical winged-horse named Tshulima.
The unit was placed in the most sensitive positions inside the presidential palace, and was responsible for protecting the secret places Assad has.
Korean military presence in Syria is not a new thing, in 1973, Hafez al-Assad a lot of ideas from former North Korean ruler Kim Il Sung, grandfather of current ruler Kim Jong-un, including the idea of the Vanguards of Baath, and the youth of Baath (a sort of military camps with a sole purpose, that is the deification of the leader.)
Since that time, Korean experts have been running all of Assad's sensitive military projects, and currently there are two air bases that are fully run by Korean pilots and technicians.
Look, if you’re actually gonna analyze this article for veracity, you’ll spoil the whole thing.
Looks like its Putin who is putting together a grand colition—Iran, Cuba, China, and now North Korea to help his own Syrian/Russian forces.
Axis of evil fighting evil. When thats done its heads up Israel?
I don’t think so.
I think the real game is with Saudi Arabia.
I’m no fan of the Saudis, but I wouldn’t want Putin controlling their oil.
I think there should be an Armored Cavalry Regiment on the border in Saudi Arabia. That’s if we still have one.
All the totalitarian hellholes know Obama’s got less than 400 days... meaning THEY have less than 400 days to do their worst. Anyone who doesn’t hate democrats isn’t paying attention to the horror they’re creating.
I just love the idea of a bus trip from one of the most messed up countries in the world through several of the most messed up countries in the world to one of the most messed up countries in the world fascinating to fight a messed up conflict. It would make Planes Trains and Automobiles or The National Lampoon Vacations look even sillier in comparison.
So, now these countries are confirmed to be in Syria
Russia, Iran, Cuba, North Korea, and China. What a wonderful show.
The Chinese sent advisers and weapons to Syria, thus they do have a small presence there. As far as getting actively into the fight, we will have to wait until after the US buzzes their fake islands in the South China Sea. I suspect that China will use that provocation, plus a few terrorist attacks by the Uigars, as justification for wider action in Syria.
Yeah you got give props to Assad least he give them room and board
Let not say that Assad is not bad host LOL!
I do suspect that China will play a more active role in Iraq with their oil field workers being there.
Do they know how silly camouflage twigs on dress uniforms looks?
Be nice to capture one of those frontline bastards. Or at least retrieve a carcass with some ID on it.
I tried to plug that into Google Maps and it was stumped.
All I can imagine is the third world frontier crossings. And I base my thoughts on some of the African border crossings I have done!
Looks like they will blend in well with the local scenery ...
That’s their Middle East (Syrian) dress uniforms ...
Assad probably told the Norks they could eat every prisoner they could catch. No wonder they are heading to the front!
HA HA so true LMAO
I think Assad going feed them that reason they going
Putin's current adventures may lead to hummus being eaten in Pyongyang and kimchi being eaten in Damascus.
Just about the last thing we need is a cadre of victorious North Korean combat veterans coming back to Pyongyang with money in their pockets, a taste for combat, an appreciation for Kim Jong-un sending them to a place with lots of food, and a desire to find new targets.
