ITT: Real, modern day people who could be the protagonists of a video game.
>After ISIS burned a Jordanian pilot alive, the King of Jordan will personally be flying bombing missions over Syria and Iraq against the Islamic State.
He better make sure he has some cyanide on him.
There's no circumstances in which I'd fight in a war without some. Whether on foot or in the air, I need to able to eat some in the event my capture was inevitable.
Jack fucking Churchill
>any officer who goes into action without his sword is improperly dressed
>king leading his troops into battle in 2015
I don't even care if it's PR. This shit is absolutely based
I have a stupid question ehre, how come ISIS still exist if it's thousands of sorties? What do they bomb? empty fields? I thought modern non nuclear bombs can level city class of NY in 12 hours.
A KING FINDS
THAT ITS NOT EASY BEING A PILOT
"By allah, I'm FLYING! Wooohooo!"
BUT WILL HE LEARN TO FIND THE PILOT
"I dont know if I can do this, but imshallah I will try"
"ALLAHU AKBAR ALLAHU AKBAAAAAAAR!"
Coming to theaters near jew
>It is claimed that Churchill also carried out the last recorded longbow and arrow killing in action, shooting a German NCO in 1940 in a French village.
Because the airstrikes are using precision weapons hitting training camps, infantry positions, and vehicles. It's not a full on WW2 style carpet bombing. If it was, every ISIS-held city could be effectively obliterated in a day or two.
hey theres like 4 nato countries with nukes just sitting around doing nothing
a few could 'accidentally' fall out of a plane, activate themselves, and blow up everything in the middle east
totally by accident, of course
it's been all over a lot of different sites, but there's no substantial evidence to back it up. lots of claims, but all the images and footage are from previous flights (and in a helicopter). that said it's fucking everywhere, so maybe the images are just being used to provide the news sites with something to make it more clickable and the mission hasn't taken place yet. wait a day or two to see if it turns out to be a rumor/propaganda as I'm sure there will be a lot of actual journalists looking into it. it would simply be too badass for the world to not take notice.
Essentially any of the Kurds at this point.
Turkey must be scared shitless, they don't want to empower the Kurds but they are the only people putting boots on the ground.
Because ISIS has no cites, they capture the cities of others and start purging. I dont know what their plan is but whatever it is its fucking terrible.
When they were chopping off heads various extreamist muslims were hesitant to decry them because they do it do, like saudi excutioners. Even the dad of the captured guy was saying he didn't think more death was the answer.
But fire is a punished reserved for Allah and delivered in hell, by burning him alive they are tunred everyone agsint them, The jordanian king is largely hated, but now he is a hero because of what they did.
Badass? I am Jordanian, do you have any idea how badly regarded the king is among us? He is a guy who gambles Jordanian money in british casinos, sells his private jet to gamble more and orders civillian airoplanes to pick him up. It's definately PR and he does not have the skill to do what he sais he will.
Russia half-assed it. Although the damage to Grozny was appalling compared to modern standards, most of the city was left in tact and the bulk of rebel forces dispersed into the forests.
Not as many places to hide in a desert.
They need to make sure that the shitty little hut they're blowing up is actually containing terrorists and not some random ass goat farmer. Usually this entails flying near and making some noise and hoping someone opens fire so they're entitled to responds with bombing the shit out of the place.
If shit got real and the US for some reason would make the decision that every innocent bystander is necessary sacrifice they could reduce every single every IS held city to a smoking pile of molten rubble within a day. But everyone would have a hissy fit if they did.
Is that honestly what you believe? You do realize ISIS themselves have posted videos of the cities they occupy in. They've been providing police for Mosul, since the last police force would literally run and hide at the sign of outside force.
Your leader being a shit doesn't stop it from being a cool thing to do particularly in comparison to every other leader who just turns up at camps to shake the hands of a few commanders before taking a photo and leaving.
The collation airstrikes are rather effective. ISIS no longer consolidates their forces due to imminent death from above, thus they can't amass forces to conquer new territories. But since the Iraqi army is shit and Assad's forces are too small and depleted to take the offensive we're in a shitty stalemate.
Its an accurate description, they hunt down various religious groups in the places they overtake and just kill them.
> They've been providing police for Mosul,
which isnt a good thing given the laws they enact.
>since the last police force would literally run and hide at the sign of outside force.
as did many others because they knew that if they stayed they would die.
The US blew the fuck out of Japan with two nuclear bombs and it shut those fanatics down hard, how many civilians went up in smoke then? Time to do it again.
For serious though if the US and other countries nutted up, stopped having to play the PR game and went in with serious intent to wipe these shits out they'd be yesterday's fucking news by now.
try to picture this from a german viewpoint
>german war technology everywhere
>a-bomb in development, fighter planes, machine guns, basically the best weapons to date in ww2
>german dudes feel pretty bad ass on he battlefield
>along comes a guy in a medival costume and fucking shoots you with a bow and arrow.
They give them a chance to run, you dolt. It's only the people who stayed that get killed.
Oh right, so a lawless territory is better than Shariah law? Do you even know what Shariah law is? Or are you about to post more western assumptions you saw on Fox news?
Jack is on par with that other one british dude who after WW1 said "Well frankly I enjoyed the war." It's also pretty hilarious how Jack tried to sabotage the plane by burning it down using old newspaper and a cigarette butt after his initial capture and transportation to Berlin for interrogation.
>stopped having to play the PR game
not playing it is why you are in this position.
its why the govement in ymen is almost out of power and pakistan hadly controls half their own nation.
also protip, genocide because you don't like them makes you the bad guy
>lets kill all the people we don't agree with indiscriminately
Not to be a moralfag here, but that's exactly what the fucking cameljockies are doing and why we hate them so much.
Either become a nuclear wasteland from their usefulness ending, or proxy nations that fight each other for the sake of their puppetmasters like in the cold war.
Why do you think the middle east has all those dictators in power, murricans and soviets have been fucking with their politics for kicks since the last forever.
>It's only the people who stayed that get killed.
This is you agreeing with the point you are arguing against.
>Oh right, so a lawless territory is better than Shariah law?
Given the locations were not lawless this is a false dilemma.
>Do you even know what Shariah law is?
Many things, for example its not okay to burn people alive under it but they did.
and given Shariah law is what was there before they move in and a warzone is what the area swiftly becomes I dont think you really understand whats happening.
>Or are you about to post more western assumptions you saw on Fox news?
not even from america you filthy hypocrite.
I think he means the hissy fit would come from within the US and UK and etc, like how everyone tuts and shakes their head at a few civvies getting killed in a crossfire, but hardly give a shit about the mountains of dead civilians ISIS and Taliban purposefully kill and bomb all fucking day.
Your mission will be to turn Greece into a server for steam and replace euro with hats.
>What took you so long?
Okay Abdul, explain the suffering of the farmers in ISIL lands who had their wheat stolen and can't even plant this year because of those chucklefucks fucking it up.
I hope you can eat dirt because soon you aren't gonna have shit.
literally a midboss for King Abdullah to fight
>Real, modern day people who could be the protagonists of a video game.
I don't understand why Greece doesn't just abandon the euro.
Obviously their economy can't support its value, if they had their own currency they could just deflate it rather than having half their country run around jobless.
What benefits does a unified currency bring them in comparison to their own financial ruin?
If they keep up with their debt repayment plan the country is basically 100% fucked because surplus doesn't really mean anything if most of your people aren't making any money.
>A mortar shell killed or wounded everyone but Churchill, who was playing "Will Ye No Come Back Again?" on his pipes as the Germans advanced. He was knocked unconscious by grenades and captured
That'll take a couple lifetimes anyway. The people that run shit there I'm sure are secular hedonists like the top % anywhere else, they're calculating and get the best educations, they'll figure something out with the lunatic money they made in the meantime.
I'd kill for a Dorner game
It'd be like stealth GTA
You mean those pot farmers who had their secret stashes of weed ripped out? Yeah, maybe they shouldn't be growing marijuana in lands that don't allow it.
Given previous warlords mandated they grow it or be killed its hard to blame them, since now there are no local food crops to support the population and drugs are the only way to afford not starving even once those warlords left.
Its a problem sure but the solution isn't to kill and let them starve.
Greece needs money from the EU to run its government.
Greece on its own cannot raise enough revenue to balance its budget.
If they leave the EU and default on their debt, they would have to rely on new creditors to loan them money to maintain their government.
Which would be unlikely since Greece keeps fucking up.
Because you dont understand how euro as a coin works.
1) No country under any circumstances can leave the eu. Even if it wanted to. Can a state leave USA?
2) The price of euro (coin) is established based on this elaborate keikakku of shady economical tricks between countries.
4) They need Greece to keep ''buying'' money, like they needed Portugal.
5)If it stops (and it will) then the plan will fail and they will need another victim or another plan
6) tldr; if any country actually leaves then its all over of EU
It's not like he'll know who are ISIS fighters from up there.
He'll be accidentally killing innocents, and the survivors will join the ranks of ISIS. ISIS is just like Anita Sarkeesian, the more you attack it, the stronger it becomes.
>As the ramps fell on the first landing craft, Churchill leapt forward from his position playing "March of the Cameron Men" on his bagpipes, before throwing a grenade and running into battle in the bay.
can you imagine this shit, the landing craft drawing near to the beach, the sounds of his bagpipes warming up, then the ramps drop and the fucker goes into full march blaring out the bagpipes and starts charging in throwing grenades.
the kill with the longbow too, imagine the fucking shock the germans would have had when suddenly their sergeant takes a barbed arrow to the chest a split second before the rest of the british regiment open fire.
this fucker was insane, the germans must have been terrified
So I'm not sure if there's a modern precedent for this, but what if a country just says "fuck you" because it can't pay.
Can't their government just take drastic measures like completely cutting off non-essential public services and slowly rebuild?
Isn't every country in debt to each other anyway?
If their plan relied on a country to bully because it couldn't stand with the heavyweights then it deserves to fail.
Monarchy: actively takes part in military, in command or in the front lines
President: 'Commander' in Chief or Commander-in-Cowardice, in a bunker in total safety, with a million advisers, all coated in bubble wrap
>By the time Churchill reached India, Hiroshima and Nagasaki had been bombed and the war ended. Churchill was said to be unhappy with the sudden end of the war, saying: "If it wasn't for those damn Yanks, we could have kept the war going another 10 years."
Its not about ''finding the flaw''. They just assumed we would elect the same leaders all the time who happen to be on their payroll. (because we actually did for a long long time)
Portugal still does though.
>Can't their government just take drastic measures like completely cutting off non-essential public services and slowly rebuild?
Yes. It's pretty much what happened to Romania after the fall of communism and it got them out of debts. Sure, problem was the corrupt president and the entire cabinet, but they sure fixed their country financially alright along with filling their own pockets.
Jordan is so fucking based.
>king goes around in disguise to get unfiltered opinions on himself from the people
>king doesn't need security in his own country because the people love him so much
>queen donates big bucks to literacy programs for girls in the Middle East
And it's not a shit place to live, either.
I maintain that policy makers should have a random 5 year old see the cliff notes of their plans.
"What if the smaller countries buying your stuff run out of money?"
Only thing I actually know about portugal is that they fixed their stance on drug abuse so it's treated as an addiction rather than a crime and reaping the rewards of drugs no longer being "cool" there.
Is Romania actually a decent country now? I was under the impression it was a slav filled shithole, I don't know enough about these things.
"fixed their country financially" is a stretch considering everyone was under the poverty line for decades with queues for basic necessities and smuggling became a necessity to survive.
>Is Romania actually a decent country now?
No. Like anon said, it's because money didn't go to the people in the end, it went to a corrupt president and his cronies. Romania is still a shithole infested by gypsies.
That might be a poorfag problem, because I lived there for 6 months and nobody complained about him. I was working for a bank though, so my social ties only really extended to upper and middle class people.
Some anon told me they are having elections sometime soon, we will wait and see.
>What if the smaller countries buying your stuff run out of money?
That was never the problem, the problem was a s simple as
>Yo greek primeminister sigh this real quick
>but these terms are insane, no intelligent person would agree to this, I dont want it
>why the hell do you care? Its not YOUR money anyway. Here is a nice paycheck
>where do I sigh?
That sounds awfully like the prime minister of my country, thank god we aren't anywhere near europe.
>tfw china buying all our land with no laws to stop them and will soon completely own us
Gypsies have never been from Romania, they're actually quite surely of Indian descent. Regardless, it's not so much about their origins, but their way of life.
Romanis, Tzigans, Manouches, Gitanos and Gypsies, no matter which name you give them, are hated absolutely everywhere, including Romania.
Then the King would become a ghost. The media would be instructed to preserve his image to maintain order and stability.
Once a replacement is ready, they'll announce that he died of natural causes and disappear from the media completely, just as his replacement gets to work.
It could still happen.
