Assad celebrating/propaganda with former ISIS captives
still dealing with ISIS remnants in the largely Druze area of Syria
Remember seeing a very similar video to that when the conflict first started in Aleppo
Anyone wanna play a pickup game in Aleppo?
I feel like folks in this thread might have something to add to the Ukraine vs. Russia one https://www.the-mainboard.com/index.php?threads/russia-and-ukraine-boutta-brawl.175839/
Kurds firing what I think is a Konkurs atgm
Just spent four months in Syria: AMA*
*answers are security dependent
What kind of shit is going on over there that the we aren't supposed to know about?
Northeastern part? If you were in Hasakah, any interaction/confrontations between the SAA and the Kurds? Any thoughts on what's gonna happen with Idlib?
Is the war over or will we see a Iraq insurgency over there for another half a decade? Whats going to happen between the regime and the kurdish held parts of Syria
I was in the South, so didn't deal with any Kurds. It was more a secondary concern for us in terms of resource allotment .
I wouldn't be surprised if we are dealing with ISIS for a long time. Kinda like alQueda set up franchises in Iraq and Yemen, we'll deal with IS franchises, which could end up back in the Levant once we and Russia get bored.
To your last part there's plenty of desert where they can set up shop like they did in western Iraq. Easy to radicalize people when they hate the government and have no future in a country with most of the infrastructure destroyed.
I’m assuming you have said before but can you share what you were doing over there?
I’m also assuming the answer is you work for the US military or government...how active on a day to day basis are US special operations in support of the effort? Feels like that theater, and our role, has fallen off the proverbial radar screen with the daily disaster we experience in our domestic politics. Is the tempo as fast still as it was two years ago?
I'm kind of middle man between ops and Intel to prioritize what needs to be supported; basically I need to speak both Intel nerd and knuckle dragger and make sure both sides are getting the support they need.
I'm not going to go into specifics on ops tempo but I don't see a drop off happening.
edit: sounds like a false alarm
another Israeli airstrike in Syria??
