Russian view on the IRGC training Syria, plus the standard bias even from a somewhat respect Russian academic
Educational weapon”: who and how prepares information special forces for Syria and Ukraine
On January 25, 2023, it became known that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps of Iran (IRGC) is beginning to train the Syrian military in the field of cyber warfare, information warfare and electronic warfare. Its specialists are ready to intensify cooperation in the field of training and retraining of personnel of the Syrian army and special services in the field of conducting special reconnaissance and sabotage activities in the information sphere.
Major General Hossein Salami, commander of the IRGC, said this at a meeting with SAR Minister of Defense Ali Mahmoud Abbas in Tehran. The retraining program of the Syrian “information special forces” will include command and staff exercises. Everything is grown-up, no fools.
At the same time, the question arises: why will the Iranians teach information operations in Syria?
The very ones who literally overslept the sabotage in Bushehr, when a sabotage tab (aka a computer virus) that got into the internal network of the uranium enrichment plant … wait a minute, from an ordinary flash drive, skillfully slipped to the station employee (!), disabled a significant part of the centrifuges (what specifically prevented the Iranians from “brewing” the required amount of “radioactive potion”)?
Why not us, who currently have the best methodology for training specialists in the field of countering information warfare operations.
We, whose Center for the Reconciliation of Warring Parties in Damascus, during the active phase of the armed struggle against ISIS, showed high efficiency precisely in the field of psychological processing of the consciousness of the previously implacable enemies of the Assad regime?
Why are the Ksirovites cooler than us? And why, even in this matter, they were ahead of us, even on such a platform as the SAR.
The answer is nothing more than that. They just work systematically.
With the beginning of the NMD, our attention was largely switched to another theater of operations, Syria faded into the background, and the IRGC specialists immediately took advantage of this. And now they are pushing the concept of “educational weapons” to the Syrians (this is a new purely Iranian trick) and … our own term “information special forces”, which appeared in Russia back in 2019 thanks to the MGER “information special forces” training program.
The positive thing about this is that the Syrians trained by the Iranians may be needed in the future for us in the fight against neo-Nazis and their propaganda in Ukraine – the Syrians remember who saved them from ISIS, and understand that the Ukrainian are the same plague as unkempt barmaley.
Moreover, Ukrainian specialists are taught special propaganda by American and British instructors – an enemy that is more than serious. Here, the Syrians will pour them into the most do not indulge.
But what are we? And we are concentrating. Back in 2019, the country’s leadership was presented with a project to create a special faculty on the basis of one of the flagship universities of the Donetsk People’s Republic. The goal was simple – to create a system for training personnel in the field of countering information warfare operations, capable of carrying out not only defensive, but also offensive measures, but so that Moscow’s “ears” would not stick out. The implementation of such a project would have made it possible to train at that time “in the gray zone” personnel not only from the LPR and the DPR, but also from all other unrecognized, partially recognized and almost recognized republics, including the PMR.
And, of course, by the beginning of 2022, we would already have several graduates of highly qualified specialists who, oh, would be useful in the NWO. And there would be no need to rush to look for these shots now – especially knowing that there is nowhere to take them.
So it turns out that, having the best methodology for training specialists in the field of information warfare and the experience of conducting successful information operations in “sandboxes” and “countries with a hot climate”, we still do not have an operational initiative in the field of “educational weapons” .
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Hossein Salami expressed the IRGC’s readiness to share its experiences in cyber, intelligence and electronic warfare with Syria.
In a meeting with Syrian Defense Minister Ali Mahmoud Abbas, held in Tehran on Tuesday, the IRGC commander underlined the importance of closer military and defense cooperation between Iran and Syria.
Voicing the IRGC’s readiness to assist the Syrian armed forces in various fields, Major General Salami highlighted the need to share experiences in the spheres relating to cyberwarfare, intelligence and information warfare, and electronic warfare.
While the IRGC remains committed to the previous military agreements with Syria, it is prepared to broaden training cooperation with the Syrian armed forces in various sectors, such as the command and staff courses, supreme courses of war strategies, supreme courses for branches, and other expert fields, Salami stated.
The IRGC chief further described the growing cases of insecurity and the recent developments in the territories occupied by the Zionists and in the West Bank, Jenin and Gaza as a sign of the decline of the Zionist regime, adding, “Those who sought to destroy Syria one day with a global onslaught are now on the road to decline and perdition.”
The Syrian defense minister, for his part, expressed gratitude to Iran for supporting his country in the fight against terrorism and Daesh (ISIL or ISIS).
Abbas also noted that the Syrian military forces are going to win the final victory and cleanse the entire Syria of occupiers with the resistance shown by its people and the unwavering support provided by Iran and Hezbollah.
He also emphasized that it is necessary to promote cooperation between Syria and Iran in various military and training sectors in order to stand against and defeat the enemies.
On Monday, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri called for plans to hold a joint war game with Syria, which he hailed for being at the forefront of supporting Palestine against the Zionist regime
