Video from that.
Good afternoon lads, has anything interested happen so far today?
In six months, one-third of all Rebel-held territory will officially be in Government control.
Also, give me your predictions /pol/. I need to know what you believe will happen in whatever time frame that you set.
Does ISIS really have manpads? I've never seen them use one.
Also, you think those silly russian pilots can get those flares to land on, say, a pile or rags and cause a fire? I'd love to see something funny like that.
US dropped 100 of them to the "FSA" back in 2012 to take down Assad's air force.
5 were fired. The rest vanished.
There was one unconfirmed report of a manpad being fired at a Russian plane in the first week, but nothing since.
Based on Russia's plans, they seem to be planning to blitz as much territory they can get in the span of.. what was it? 6 weeks of intervention? And then top it off with something they call "Political Compromise".
I've no idea what that means, but if I know one thing, terrorists don't know the meaning of "compromise" or "political".
They do have SAMs yes man portable and vehicle mounted, the latter being seized in Iraq and from the Syrian gov't, but Russkis will just spam countermeasures per usual as seen in the recent vids of VERRRRRRRRRP grinding kebabs
Russian MoD doing the daily brief:
>#SYRIA #Kartapolov: Radio reconnaissance confirmed about 100 militants disguised as refugees to cross the Syrian border every night
>#SYRIA #Kartapolov: Desertion among #ISIS militants becomes worse. Most of groups are demoralized
Everyone is going to Europe for a winter break.
They can restart the jihad there.
>Firing at the Su-25's....
It's as if they only want to make them more angry with their exercise in futility.
Only tents? This wont do at all.
The government and leftist activists require you to leave your home and exchange places with a refugee family in the tent city.
Its only fair that they, these poor oppressed class of persons be given all of your stuff, as you are an oppressor.
Its the Marxist way.
I don't want winter to come, I cannot afford heating.
tbh I did a panic job. Perhaps we should get a volunteer for the next edition early on, like now. I just copypasta and changed the previous thread number. We were at 330 posts. I had to act basedly
I must say I prefer the Shia promo video material - even the music is better. Great vid

Website of volunteers helping refugees in Berlin, a glimpse into reality. These are the people who love refugees and want to keep them all, what the write is based on their daily effort and experience

Less airstrikes because the Russians soften up the areas then the Syrians advance.
They are still hitting ISIS hard though.
A lot of those advancing are Shia militias that fought the Americans in Iraq.
>anyone find footage?
>Seems slow today
All the usual islamists who video everything seem to have disappeared as thought they were mysteriously erased from the earth all of a sudden.
Can't imagine why.
FSA/Al Nusra will cease to exist in 4-5 months, all of them will defect to ISIS
SAA will regain Aleppo and Palmyra in 6 months
Homs-Hama highway will be reopened by the Syrian Army in 1 month
Kweires Airbase siege will be lifted in one month or less.
Jirs al Shougur liberated in 3 months, Idlib in 6
The last battles will be against what is left of Al Nusra/other islamist terrorists in south Syria and the last big battle will be Deir Ezzor and the Druze Beast will be appointed as the new General of the Army.
Also, today was a great day for the Syrian Army, they are opening fronts and fronts with the support of the RuAF and iraqi/afghan/hezbollah fighters.
Already 4 places liberated in Aleppo south in one day of offensive.
That sucks, we get them until the end, at the good institues at least.
>Pay € 2100 for 60m2 in Amsterdam.
At least I'm comfy in my debt..
>Who else comfy here?
I blame the Chinese, foreign students seem to come before British students in access to housing.
Start of big push was today, maybe not the big one, but al arabia reports that iranians and hezobollah engaed today first time.
Hoping for vidya
Sucks to be you lol
(Translation if what the other fella told you)
But seriously, even the Mexicans speak 2 languages, the only group that is only bright enough to speak one is the redneck American lmao
Thinking about making some tea, otherwise totally comfy.
Aside from the odd civilian with a woman or child in the arms who come running every time there is a camera around, the majority of people there are men in military gear with weapons.
Don't run your radio command center out of your bedroom with a listening/SIGNIT ship off the coast and an Il-20 with a sensor pod circling overhead working to triangulate every "Allah snackbar" you shout over the radio.
Do you work for an NGO by any chance?
Well there's a reason I became a doctor.
Still a few years until i actually start earning anyhting.
How much do they make over in Russia? Quite a bit less I suppose?
>tfw I can't sleep without a coffee. Residency breaks a man.
They wont zerg rush ISIS positions like they did 2 months ago in Al Ghab plains where they pushed far too quickly and they got pushed back every time for not preparing the ground they captured to defend it against counter assaults.
>meanwhile in japan
AFTER returning to power in December 2012, Shinzo Abe, Japan’s prime minister, worked hard to persuade reluctant leaders in Okinawa to abandon their resistance to the long-mooted construction of a new military base for American marines at Henoko, a pristine beach on the prefecture’s main island. He, and the Americans, hailed it as a breakthrough when a building permit was issued the following year. Now the governor of Okinawa, Takeshi Onaga, who was elected in 2014, has revoked the permission. Mr Abe, and the Americans, will not be happy.
>TL;DR = Okinawa's governor has revoked permission again for a new American army base
Did Tsargrad have any majesty left in it when you lived there?
I dislike the cuckold meme, but sometimes it fits just right. Why the obsession with everything non-european, lad?
I have never heard that before lol.
It still has some really nice places for tourists. Old Buildings from the Ottoman Empire and Old Constantinople. But the majority of the city is really not so good because all the Turks from the East move there and need cheap housing so it looks like it is a city in Bulgaria but much much bigger.

I actually tried the ghetto first. My car was burnt on the second day.
It was a fucking zoo. At least my neighbours were lovely, they always invited me over for dinner.
Drink some Dutch beer mate, we are finally improving beyond pisswasser.
I really hope so. I was stuck in an isolated patrol base in Afghanistan for months - I feel for the lads in there. I think it will be weeks not days, the Loyalists will want to ensure that they take the airfield for good due to its strategic value, otherwise they could have realistically staged a break in by now.
I don't understand how the japs think they're supposed to survive with no offensive military while surrounded by countries that hate their guts.
The US military is pretty much the only thing keeping them safe.
>Why the obsession with everything non-european, lad?
Sucking up to the Chinese seems a wise thing to do in any case. I'd prefer they came to see us as a sort of harmless open air museum rather than a threat.
the battle of aleppo will be decided within 4 months
militants will suffer devastating losses in idlib and homs, potentially shifting the war deeply into assad's favor
for the first time in a year and a half, it looks as though he could reclaim most of the country
Zundert and La Trappe are perfectly cromulent trippels, but I don't think you have any good dark beers yet. And the unseasonable cold weather definitely calls for a thick, lukewarm dark beer.
Losses had nothing to do with it, Stalin executed most of experienced commanders before the war.
Though I guess after a while the smarter ones stayed alive and commanded more effectively because the worse ones were captured or killed.
RIP houthibro :(
You mean the communist - imperial war ?
Either way everything I said stands, for an army to be effective you need to have experienced commanders.
Can't expect that with an army that was never at war or just formed or had most of it experienced commanders executed.
It's not the losses that make them effective, it's the experience gained from both wins and losses.
Houthi Bro was on the previous thread after that no?

They expect one of us in the wreckage, brother.
We are just not capable of making dark beer.

"russia reached out to saudi arabia and [...] for cooperation in tackling terrorism"
Putin to Saudi prince:
>how would you like your cute little pets disposed off? No, i'm serious, you get to choose. Artillery or Airstrikes, should we use thermobaric bombs?
How should I finish off the United States?
Nukes or death Robots?
>tfw playing comfy CIV whilst reading this thread.
>>how would you like your cute little pets disposed off? No, i'm serious, you get to choose. Artillery or Airstrikes, should we use thermobaric bombs?
The government and Kurds have a truce for now and Russia has proposed an alliance too. We will see how their stance changes under US pressure.
I dont see their stance changing much. Money and promises from the US are nice and all, but they are still being bombed by Turkey who is US ally through more than just NATO.
Assuming a stance against Assad now that Russia has entered the field directly as the only big player would be quite suicidal.
An-124 alway arrive with new gifts inside...it's like santa claus :)
Look at these prices.
Is it worth it?
I suspect broad autonomy. If they show themselves to be good responsible citizens in the eyes of whoever is appointed judge, they will get independence in time. maybe. a Kurdish state separating iran from iraq and iran from turkey would completely change the middle east. they could have ports on the black sea, the med and the red sea. But that wont happen, these folks are so dispersed in and amongst one another ( shia sunni kurd yazidi etc) that its far too complicated to contemplate
Didn't the SAA start an offensive in Aleppo today, together with Iranian troops and Hezbollah?
Vid is 'SAA reinforcements in the Aleppo area today'
'distress call from rebels in Southern Aleppo today'
I don't speak terrorist though.
Can get it dirt cheap, it will most likely go back on sale this christmas sale.
reminds me of the call the PKK peasants made a couple weeks ago begging turkey to stop when they were getting bumfucked, they got cut off by their pkk leaders to die, to not make them look weak
Just got it with a key for 10 bucks from steam.
I really love the way app store works (so fucking smooth) but the prices are criminal.
filthy terrorist rat under the boot of the syrian army
and by boot I mean sandal because its casual friday
You can buy keys off of websites like kinguin if you don't want to get fucked over by prices, the sellers on there buy keys when the game is on sale and sell them whilst it's not, pretty good if you miss a sale or find out about a game late.
Its more like:
> oy vei it`s alnusr... errr FSA!, they are totally different from isis and so-o moderate
have an explanation now
Bulgaria refused to let this plane fly over its territory
sources in russian
also this anon was right
it is humanitarian aid
same sources as above
> 1. to hide the location of the main forces
> 2. to stress the enemy supply lines
> 3. to join your ranks and divide your enemies ranks
> 4. to place your force in strategically better positions
> shorten your fronts and extend enemy fronts
This is Sun Tzu - the basics of the basics.
Where is the speculations?
There won't be a Kurdish State. None of the nations(Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran) want that. That only benefits Israel which is what they do not want. No deal will be made on this issue. Why the Kurdish commie lovers keep hoping for this is beyond me.
>AVE MARIA DEUS VULT!!!!
Why make it red? FSA is a secular power, that Russia officially wants to support, to end the conflict in a political way as quickly as possible.
It`s just a coincidence, that nobody have contacts of any ruling officer of this FSA. And americunts, that spent 500 millions for their training have contacts only of 6 FSA fighters, that are no generals or anything like that.
If secular FSA comes out and says that they do not want a peacefull political solution, then Lavrov would make the statement about change of russian position on FSA, then it will be red.
> just a reminder
how would that benefit israel?
i thought they only supported the kurds in their fight against the turks to piss them off because those in turn support the palis
is there more to it?
yes, if secular FSA suddenly decides it exists again and wants to negotiate. True.
Still remaining: needs red from russia to daesh and islamic front+nusra (the guys who prominently sit in supposedly FSA territory)
They will probably have to make some concessions. Fighting Kurds can prove hard because they have open American support and it would look bad because they aren't jihadists.
They have Russian and Iranian advisors now.
Syria and Israel have always been enemies. Since they can't kill off Syria and Annex the entire nation, they'll just have them, along with other unfriendly nations, broken apart. Israel only supports the Kurds if it means weakening their Arabian State Enemies.
Not if the Rebels are killed off. Once the Rebels are done for, along with the Islamic State, they'll begin a campaign against the Kurds. The only reasons they don't fight the Kurds is due to lack of fronts along with the fact that they have begun negotiations. Assad will not grant Autonomy, that's a ridiculous idea.
They just admitted they knew it was a hospital too.
You watch, as soon as the Russians hit some "civilian" thing or a red cross ambulance carrying arms McCain will scream bloody murder.
The Iraqis and Syrians will not attack the Kurds, it's stupid to do so, the areas in Northern Iraq / Syria the Kurds now control are Kurdish. It is nothing like the Kurdistan that they truly want but it is something.
>They will probably have to make some concessions. Fighting Kurds can prove hard because they have open American support and it would look bad because they aren't jihadists.
Aren't kurds islamic communists?
> deus vult
Meanwhilte pope supports savage shitskin flood.
NATO opposes russian efforts to choke it`s root.
Russia is not in direct war, there are two forces dispatched - russian navy on caspian sea and one russian airforce regiment. And they allowed only to support kurds and asad forces, where hq thinks it will bring more peace, than war in syria. That is a clear diplomatic guideline for military.
Iraq requested intervention, but idk what is the situation on this question.
>> deus vult
>Meanwhilte pope supports savage shitskin flood.
>NATO opposes russian efforts to choke it`s root.
all western institutions are infiltrated by the anti-white anglo-zionists. and the situation is so desperate that the historical opponent of the west are the ones fighting for actual western racial interests as a CONSEQUENCE of their actions.
What? We're talking about the extermination of the white race at the hands of the migration caused by this conflict, this conflict was started by the american-based anglo-zionists.
What the russian wrote was that the actions of the russian federation is trying to fix the conflict that is causing this wave of migration in the first place, and that these actions of the russian federation is opposed by NATO, NATO which is supposed to protect the interests of its nations, which they are not since they are opposing attempts to fix a conflict causing the extermination of our very race.
We about 40 posts from the point where we begin panicking for the next thread. Can someone please volunteer ( I remind you that many Assad supporters have had to volunteer for tougher assignments recently ). I saw some folks with ideas about the vids and articles that need to be on the title post.
Just finished my last midterm and back to comfy.
They are poor everywhere they live, they are the largest ethnic group on earth without their own nation. Cut them some slack they have been good allies in the fight against ISIS.
The real fuckers in all of this are the Turks but they won't let the Kurds have anything. I hope once ISIS is destroyed the Kurds turn the insurgency up a few notches and start fighting the Turks more.
>They are poor everywhere they live
nah they are okay in iraqi kurdistan but they have corrupt leaders
>they are the largest ethnic group on earth without their own nation.
for a reason
>Cut them some slack they have been good allies in the fight against ISIS.
lel i have no problem with the YPG, but the PKK could fight satans army and resque jesus christ in syria for all i care
they are freedom fighters in syria, you average good for nothing terrorist in turkey
>The real fuckers in all of this are the Turks but they won't let the Kurds have anything
kurds dont pay taxes, free electicity, free water, turkey invested billions into these shit areas
and as far as i know turkey has decent relations with the kurds in iraq
>I hope once ISIS is destroyed the Kurds turn the insurgency up a few notches and start fighting the Turks more.
i do too, its a wet dream of mine that k*rds break free from turkey
they do have oil but most of the infrastructure to get it has been destroyed. they've spoken in the past on how they would be open to start a new pipeline/refinery with government support. even willing to open the pipeline to western syria if they're able to control the way
but the syrian kurds cant get along with the iraqi kurds
they have to get along with each other first
but the iraqi kurds hate the PKK
and the iraqi kurds have good relations with Turkey, so the kurds in iraq making good relations with syrian kurds would mean turkey would drop iraqi kurdistans support
this would all be easier if the PKK would decide to dissolve after the conflict ends imo
One of the big strengths the Kurds have it would seem is unity. Or rather in Iraq they have unity. This leads to good responsible conduct, and disciplined conduct. In Iraq I think they have generated a great deal of goodwill and as a result of that most people are receptive to their message, more so than in the past, when they did not really know anything about them.
Kurds in Syria do have oil. the Hassakah/Jazira region has the most oil. There is a reason why the baathist and arabist Syrian governments tried to change the ethnic mix-up in the Jazira region with arabisation. That north-eastern part of Syria was mostly Kurdish, Assyrian, Armenian, Turkmen, Syriac, with a very small arabic minority. The governments tried to change that by displacing the locals, canceling the nationality of a lot of kurds, and encouraging arabs with incentives to go to the Jazira. Even the former Head of Syrian Army, a Kurd, got his nationality canceled by the arabist governments after his resignation in those days.
Syrians used to have the most freedom in the French Mandate period. The arabists, chauvinists and all other retards fucked Syria up after the French. Syria was never meant to rule centrally.
barzani is grinding KRG government mechanations to a halt - hes essentially holding the region hostage so he and his family can stay in power
PKK is extreme in its actions and its ideals are regrettable to say the least. they need to recognize that the freedom they desire isn't a possibility in the current climate. moderating is the only way they'll secure lasting development and peace for turkish kurds
>thats nice but the syrian kurds cant get along with the iraqi kurds
Bullshit. Remember Peshmerga in Kobane? the only Syrian-Iraqi Kurdish conflicts are between the PYD (Political organisation behind YPG) and the PDK (corrupt, tukish influence, poppulist). The rest of the Iraqi Kurds, which is the overwhelming majority, have no problems with Syrian kurds. They have a lot of sympathy for them. Only Turkey influenced politicians from 1 political party don't.
>they have to get along with each other first but the iraqi kurds hate the PKK
yet again only the (hardline) PDK/barzanists
what do you mean in iraq?
because as far as i know the Iraqi government is still extremely against an independant kurdistan
and i would guess iran would also not like that
Turkey probably also not but you never really know what up with our insane leader atm
and even within them they are having problems now
ah thats cool, im glad for them, that they have oil
the pkk needs to dissolve
thats what needs to happen, they should just globally send out a message that they dissolve
they can just join the YPG, no?
Also, do the syrians and iraqis even want Turkish Kurds?
They are mostly islamist conservatives that still vote on erdogan
Houthis kicking ass and taking names.
SANAA, Yemen — Yemen's Shiite Houthi rebels have driven pro-government troops out of the southern Bayda province on Friday, after two months of heavy clashes that killed 550 fighters from the two sides, security and medical officials said.
The Houthis recaptured a key military base in the town of Mukayris and pushed pro-government troops back to Abyan province further south, the officials added. Of the 300 pro-government fighters killed, 30 were mistakenly targeted by airstrikes from the Saudi-led coalition backing the government, they said.
Must be all that khat.
>Bullshit. Remember Peshmerga in Kobane?
they got permission from the turkish government to help them lel, they have to leave after
Also you can say whatever you want about the barzanis, they maybe corrupt, but without them iraqi kurds would never be in this good of a situation, without them they would have never had a safeheaven, he played politics briliantly with their neighbors
Who do the Kurds have as friends?
Iraq/iran will not like them
assad will not like them
turkey could like iraqi, but deff not syrian+iraqi and DEFF not after the pkk joined them
Houthi's are shit. No one knows what their aims really are. They are now being supported by the ousted president, the one they fought for a decade. Houthi's blow up a lot of beautiful buildings, structures etc just for revenge. That's the sad thing about Yemen, no side represents the real Yemeni people, all sides are basically warlords warring.
Bruh, you act as if Barzani's/PDK are the only element of Iraqi Kurds that contributed to the succces of the KRG. You should know that that's definitely not true. There are a lot of other politicians.
First of all, at this moment the best (in terms of effectiveness of rule) politicians aren't PDK, the best military strategists DEFINITELY aren't PDK. 90% of the respected generals are not PDK. Economically, the PDK has a lot of leverage, but non-PDK were more innovative in that region, because of the 90's dual administration where the PDK had crowded bordercrossings, and non-PDK didn't.
AMERICA DOES IT AGAIN.
Barzani is deff the biggest contributor
it is he that played the politics briliantly with his neighbor nations, its thanks to him that an independant kurdistan is likely mostly because of him
the world aint a shiny place, barzani knows that, he would never ask turkey for land, the YPG did that multiple times like the retards they are
we should have just given turkish kurdish land away and build a wall, now even the turkish kurds realize that they would die of hunger if they would seperate or some other ISIS thing would destroy them, stupid turkish nationlists
Our aim is plain and simple. No U.S interference,No Saudi interference, No outside forces influencing our country or our destiny. We are not an Iranian proxy, we do not want an imamate. If the GCC and the world have a problem with us being an Iranian proxy for the sin of kind off having the same sect then they can go Fuck themselves. You have a problem with Iran then fucking attack Iran. And what fucking "beautiful" structures did we blow up?
But the thing I'm surpirsed about is how come do you fight so well? Only because Saudis are retards? Or do you have some awesome training from Iran, Hezbollah or some othe place?
Goog luck BTFOing Saudis
