It is time to consider the use of tactical nuclear weapons to crush Idlib’s terrorists

Yesterday in Syria, a L-39 Albatros jet trainer was shot from the sky by terrorists loyal to the so-called Free Syrian Army, a group which incidentally, just hours before, pledged to boycott the Russian organised peace conference scheduled for next month in Sochi.

The terrorists paraded the dead body of pilot, a Syrian martyr, in the back of a truck, like the savages that anyone with a conscience knows that they are.

The shot that brought down the plane was fired form Idlib Governorate and hit the aircraft near the Hama/Idlib border.

This is significant as Idlib is one of the last area in Syria that is still completely controlled by terrorists. Previous evacuations of terrorists from other regions to Idlib,  has led to the phenomenon of nearly every terrorist group in Syria having its own base in the dark Governorate, without the government controlling any significant amount of territory.

After today’s downing of a Syrian aircraft, the time has come to eradicate the penultimate hornets’ nest of savagery from Syria using any military means necessary, including that which will send an unambiguous message to the sponsors of terrorism in Syria, including the United States and Israel.

Russia’s General Staff, Valery Gerasimov has already stated that the United States is training ISIS fighters evacuated from areas including Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor for further attacks in order to destabilise a situation in Syria where previously, Damscus had begun neutralising the final hotbeds of terrorist activity both in Deir ez-Zor and the Golan Heights.

The terrorists are clearly aware of this and are therefore making ever more use of their hardened positions in Idlib, in order to launch a final stand-off with Syria and her allies.

There can be no excuse for not eradicating fully, the terrorist threat in Idlib. It is for all intents and purposes, nothing more than a failed Governorate whose very existence as a terrorist hotbed threatens the safety and stability of the rest of Syria.

The only solution is to pull all troops away from Idlib as well as all low flying aircraft and instead to mercilessly bomb the entire Governorate, showcasing the most modern weapons available.

A combination of lethal strikes by Syria’s allies Russia and Iran is totally necessary, not only to avenge the loss of the L-39 Albatros, but also to show the United States that it cannot win in Syria because Syria’s allies will no longer hesitate to use the most advanced weapons in order to destroy the terrorist hotbed—weaponry which could just as easily be turned against anyone else.

During the Second Chechen War, Russian opposition leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky advocated the use of tactical nuclear weapons upon enemy strongholds in order to both execute a military objective with exactitude, but also to send a message to the American supporters of the jihadists, that any support they could offer their thugs, would ultimately be futile.

This option, along with that of every other major modern weapon must now be fully considered in order to not just win the Battle of Idlib, but to cleanse Syria of a cancer growing on her soil, which infects all of the civilised world.

If such weapons were used in Idlib, it would also send Israel a clear message, that Syria and her allies will be unrelenting in pursuing all means necessary in order to secure her borders.

As for civilians, there should be a clear and orderly evacuation of women and children, just as was executed in Aleppo before the final battle commenced. Of course, no one should be informed as to what is to come at the time of such an evacuation, but once civilian populations are relieved, the world’s largest display of firepower must be released without hesitation.

Syria cannot sit and wait, Idlib must be the red line for all allies of Damascus. Turkey can reposition itself at a later time to attack its Kurdish enemies, without being  directly effected by the operation. Turkey is at this stage, behaving pragmatically in Syria. Only the US and Israel continue to play with fire.

Idlib must be reduced to rubble and with it, every terrorist group in Syria. If Idlib is destroyed, so too will terrorism be destroyed.
