    Who hit who? The camera didn't move a milimetre which I think it would have if a 100 tank shell had exploded next to it.

    Nah, life doesn't teach you how to solve differential equations.


    SAA tanks in Daraya this morning:

    Well think again, the fact you know what is differential equations, shows that life already taught you. Just think deeper...

    P.S. in both videos, the most common export T-72M1 tanks.

    Daraa, tank takes a hit. Not clear if damaged.
    As a point of interest, in 0:09 you can hear the phrase "wa ma ramaytu iz ramayt wa lakin allahhu rama". You can hear it in a LOT of videos coming from Syria (they were shouting it in the video of the FN-6 shootdown yesterday too). It is a Quranic verse, from Surat al-Anfal (8:17). It means: "[*******#000000][FONT=Georgia] And you threw not, [O Muhammad], when you threw, but it was Allah who threw"

    Jihadists relying on "inshallah auto guidance system". Which is good, since the time spent on reading Quran is time not spent on reading actual operational manuals.

    Being religious does not necessarily make one a bad soldier. Nusra brigades are some of the best trained of all the rebels. Hezbollah troops are highly religious, and their fieldcrat and marksmenship tend to be excellent. Many US troops are devout Christians etc. etc. No reason to condescend towards them purely on that basis. Of course the more openly religious had a difficult time adavncing in the SAA before the war so I suppose the better trained defectors were more secular minded at the start, but that does not necessarily reflect at this later point in the conflict.

    No, of course not. But in general, believing too much in divine intervention will make you do stupid things, that you otherwise wouldn't. Glorifying death will also make you behave differently, than someone who isn't that sure what "awards" await in the afterlife. And these are traits of (young) islamists.

    Al Nusra are sucessful, because SAA is quite crappy (which also shows that being non-religious doesn't help you becoming a good soldier either) and by extension FSA (defectors) are quite crappy too. Al Nusra is also comprised by more experienced older fighters, with experienced Iraqi insurgents as instructors. I also think that Christians do not tend to throw away their lives as eagerly as some Muslims can. It's also a cultural thing, so US religious soldiers cannot be compared in this case.

    Hezbollah is a regional anomaly (but then again, those are also older & experienced guys, not young & reckless adventure seeking jihadists)

    Could you say that Hezbollah militants are more effective in this type of environment (Urban & Guerrilla warfare) than the SAA?

    Most certainly. Hezbollah are a specialized & flexible guerilla force, while SAA is (or was) a big rigid conventional army with an outdated doctrine & mentality. IMO, in this particular type of fight (urban, anti-insurgency) SAA could learn a lot from Hezbollah experience of being a small lightweight guerilla force.
