While ex-ISIS fighters return and receive treatment for their traumas this anti-ISIS fighter is facing a possible murder trail because he admitted he shot at ISIS terrorists.
He got arrested because the state has a monopoly on using force.
So is his arrest right or wrong?
Unless the country from which the ISIS fighter originated brings trial no. But since ISIS isn't recognized as a state fuck them. They are outlaws, they get no protection under the law and should be shot in the streets like animals.
I might have met that guy when I was in Syria. Anyone got more pictures.
Haha yeah just googled him, I've met this guy. There is about a 90% chance he never killed any ISIS, he is completely full of shit. I met him on my way out of Syria.
His name is Jitse Akse.
I don't understand why our justice department wants to prosecute when Syria did not do a formal request.
This. If Syria didn't care then it's none of Netherlands' government's business. Otherwise we should be arresting all the American tourists that go to Amesterdam to smoke weed. Illogical.
btw shouldn't this person be trialed in Iraq or Syria or wherever he fought then? Under what laws is he getting trialed for a possible murder in that country in the netherlands? Sorry if this sounds retarded btw i'm not knowledgable in law .
That was just my proof I've been to Syria. I've met this guy, he is a tall tale teller. Tried to tell me about his witnessing the death of Heval Kemal(Ashley Johnson.) Problem is I was in Taboor Soran and know people who were with Kemal when he died, Jitse Akse was not one of them. He is a liar.
Good way of looking at it... Anyone want to see pictures?
No not bad, he didn't have much meat on him, dogs and cats eat corpses quick and he had been out in the sun for a long fucking time. That picture was taken about 40-45 kilometers away from Raqqa. Until last month that was as close as any westerner had gotten since the formation of ISIS. Now I imagine since they've moved closer my record has been beaten.
law shouldn't treat ISIS as humans desu
wtf let him and give him a medal
Did Netherlands declare war on terror along with the US and many others? This is whay allows the US to bomb in yemen and waziristan "and get away with it". They aren't at war with those countries but at war with terror which is global.
No I've been back a few months, I have a bunch of pictures. What do you fuckers want to see.
Hahaha you fucking Canada-cuck. He picked up a Dragonov and took a picture with it, doesn't make him a sniper.
I'm an American who wanted to fight in a war. I was in a hummer unit, and an anti-vehicle unit. I left as a team captain of the American unit in a famous hummer unit called Taboor Soran.
Hey look my friend was a sniper in WW2, he has a Nagant! God I fucking hate Canadians.
Some islamists are on trial in Sweden now for cutting the throat of 2 syrian soldiers. They will probably get life time in jail. They filmed it.
If you talk about it, you get in trouble. Some people went to fight in Ukraine and Iraq but they didn't talk about what they did there, so nothing happened.
Let me get my other phone and plug it into this comp, I'll drop some shit. Don't have THAT many dead body pictures. I have some video but I'm not sure how to get vids on here.
Here is my hummer after the Abdul Aziz operation. We got lit the fuck up, had five or six RPGs shot at us, got our tire shot out and ended up having to temporarily retreat to wait for an airstrike and then to get our tire replaced.
Don't thank me for my service I'm not American Military. I was with the Kurds, they are pretty cool people especially Iraqi kurds. Iraqi Kurds fucking love Americans.
sheeit that hummer has better days. why aren't the kurds using MRAPs?
must be thousands of these things just sitting around in storage.
Sure there were Christian militias defending territory and a large minority of the Kurds were Christians. For the most part though it is Muslim Kurds doing the fighting.
I was in Syria not Iraq, there are no MRAPs... Not to mention you would need to operate them and maintenance them which would be impossible in Syria. We could barley keep the Hummers and the Trucks operating. We had some pretty hilarious "home-made" shit though. Pic obviously related.
No problem just waiting for my cunt brother to get on Steam so I can play CS if anyone has any questions I'll answer.
From where the other foreigners came from and what was your opinion on them?
What's the average personality of the foreigner that is down for this kind of thing? Were there too many tourist-soldiers or just foreigners regretting joining in in general?
>did you fuck any qts over there?
No didn't fuck any, but had a ton of sexual tension with some seriously fucking beautiful teenagers and girls in the very early 20's. They looked at us like we were heroes, and of course to marry an American was the secret dream of all but the most hardcore leftist ideologues. The Kurds know this though and keep an extremely close eye on westerners when it comes to women. No one has fucked a Kurdish girl that I know of.
>Have any previous military exp?
>Did you 360 noscope any sand african americans?
Was considering it. On the other hand I would rather not die, my buddy Reece got shwacked. So many fucking mines, it is pure luck who get killed and who doesn't. Pic very related.
They are brave and relatively good for villagers with little to no training. They are not all sociopaths suicidal like the media portrays. Although one did detonate a grenade next to his head rather than allow us to kill him.
Didn't Rutte say we are at war with IS after Paris? Not an official declaration, but still..
Weve got the right extremist/nazi terror for that. Dont you hear about the burning refugeehomes in the states? National-Socialist-Underground? Germany is Nr1 on the list of the most violent rightwinged extremists. No, hes doing better then the Bundeswehr, if he keeps fighting against the Is.
If the vids aren't that big, check out the link at the top of /gif/ for the webm for bakas link, and make the max filesize on them 3.9 MB or so, disable audio, and then they're uploadable here without using other filesharing services. If you feel like dealing with all that bother, some highlights would be interesting.
Just in it for the adventure. I understand. Are most of the vehicles armored with makeshift steel plate? I have yet to see a picture of a bongo truck from over there with an open flat bed and an HMG on it. They're super common in Africa and SE Asia.
Most of the vehicles are white toyota hyluxes just like ISIS. We captured one that my commander ended up using, whenever you turned it on it said Allahu Akbar three times, was programmed into the damn radio or something. They usually had something called a doushka in the bed, it shot big ass fucking rounds of whatever the fuck. There were two calibers but I don't remember what they were. Bullet here.
In many cases yes, but many times they have a version are manufacturing themselves in Rojava. I wish I had taken more pictures... I do have this rifle they call the Zagros that is made in Rojava.
>Is Obama a terrorist?
Obama is ok, he helped us blow up Daesh.
>How'd you get the gig?
I went to Lions of Rojava and they recruited me. Flew to Iraq, went out to a PKK camp in the mountains that border Iraq/Turkey/Syria, and walked across the border after spending ten days in the mountains drinking stream water.
No that is mostly true, I was very lucky to have gone to a unit that lets Americans fight and to have gained respect in that unit. My hummer unit had two westerners die in it, Ashley Johnston and Erik Scurfield. Reece Harding was my friend and served in Soran with me, he also died after the unit broke up and we went to specialized fighting unit, him to sabotage me to anti-vehicle. They let you fight, but only if you are lucky and only if you prove yourself.
I heard of lions of rojava. I might just go out there and give it a shot. I really just want to go for the adventure at this point, and of course I want to help fight Isis, so its a win-win for both parties.
I guess I'll make a kikebook since that's what they recruit through.
If I bring gear, will that help my chances of seeing some action? I know they want guns but I really don't think I can bring guns with me.
>eradicating a sub-bacterial, nihilist, bipedal spæcial virus threatening homo-sapien existence
I heard of one injured ISIS guy getting shot by a Kurd Kandil, generally you don't take prisoners because they might blow themselves up when you get close. We did "arrest" people in ISIS areas we already had taken control of.
Not even sure if LoR is still taking people, most westerners are whiny cowards who leave after a month or two and only went for the facebook pictures. I recommend it if you can, it was a fucking crazy experience. No gear is required, just try to learn Kurmanji and do what you are told.
This kind of shit is precisely why I shed no tears when a European Jew gets murdered or a European leftist gets raped.
Your continent culture literally hates good. They hate it. They punish it. Good is perceived as evil, and evil is cherished and loved.
100% chance. Especially if you are in your mid 20's to 30's with a solid job and a place to live.
Sorry didn't see this question and it is probably the best one.
Most are Germans, they are communists/true believers. I respect them, good fighters but I don't but the whole revolution thing.
A lot of English, my experience is they are ex-military who never got to fight. Probably served in Ireland or the Balkans. Hotheads, good in a fight.
Americans are next. I am American so this is hard to say, most are CoD wannabes. The rest are ex-military pussies who never got into the shit and regret it. Problem is they get to Rojava and this isn't the fucking Green Zone, there are no burgers or reinforcements. No black helicopters. Most are pussies. I was embarrassed for my country.
Guys from the Balkans were the best. A little volatile, but good fighters and weren't stuck in the soft Western ethno-egalitarian mode. Balkans guys don't feel bad for Arabs, they aren't emo.
A couple of French dudes, I thought they were all right. Didn't get to know them well.
Because some fucking cat lady bueraucrat wants to justify her wage and pretend like she is doing "something". Can't go after actual ISIS members because "das rayciss" so this bullshit turns up instead.
My Croatian turret gunner(I drove the hummer.) Most solid dude I met my entire time there. Great guy.
>Under what laws is he getting trialed for a possible murder in that country in the netherlands? Sorry if this sounds retarded btw i'm not knowledgable in law .
For criminal law you only need territoriality (crime is committed on the territory of the state) OR nationality (crime committed by/against your citizen) to have jurisdiction. It's perfectly legal. Not prosecuting pro-ISIS fighters is illegal however.
Somewhat my experience too (although not in Syria obviously). It's a shame really. Unless they've had special operations experience, too many Americans in contracting were former desk jockeys and pencil pushers who basically relied on having a clearance to get a job. They're soft and while running a mile is a nice warm up for me, those guys get winded. They never saw combat and regretted it... then they go on contract and regret bullets flying at them. Cowards. It was especially bad in the late 2000s (2008/2009) when US law enforcement guys were showing up on contracts. Worst ever. Poor fitness, shitty personalities, and completely unprofessional.
I really like working with Brits, French, Canadians, and Americans who had already seen combat.
The funny thing is, I've never had military experience. I was an EMT before all of this.
My dad and I worked for DynCorp, there's a lot of fucking Al Bundy types in tactical vests, who really shouldn't fucking be there but they just stayed on base anyway.
My dad and I were some of the only units that actually went and met with locals / law enforcement out in the actual Afghani towns and cities up north.
Funny story, but once I was in a building meeting with a neutral party (an Afghani not "friendly" towards us, but not hostile either), and for that visit I was paired with some bull-dyke tryhard for the visit (first time working with her, she was just assigned.) Anyway, we're in the fucking heart of Kunduz in the back room of some building, and some Mudshit gave her some lip or disrespected her somehow (forget what was said and done) but she took it way up the ass and made this really hostile scene and I literally had to pull her aside in front of these 3 mudshits and basically tell her that she's fucking stupid and could get us killed acting like this (it's very easy to disappear in an Afghan city.)
I just remember me physically wanting to punch her in the throat. She had the audacity to even grab her weapon during the tantrum. Half of me was like WHAT ARE YOU DOING and the other half like I said wanted to damage her larynx.
It's a god damn shame. Can I ask what you were doing?
-Can they prosecute for murders outside of Netherlands? Even for war crimes I thought they needed special legislation that is very new.
-Could it not be considered self defense if they really want to go the murder route?
This trial makes as little sense at the Geert Wilders trial.
Mainly close protection/PSD/convoy protection in Iraq, and some occasional site security in Iraq, Afghanistan, once in Ghana. Mainly for G4S. I've also sat on a container ship going through the strait of malacca with Neptune. Team medic. I've been lucky, It's hasn't been too messy for me yet.
Was it difficult to learn the language? I've been going over some the links here but was wondering if not picking it up right away was a deal breaker or not to them.
It is not THAT hard, I mean fuck it is a foreign language. Made a little harder by the fact that the language is not standardized, their are a bunch of different dialects and sub-dialects. There is no single accepted dictionary. You'll be fine.
A lot, and I do mean a lot of this industry hires on personal recommendations. Sure there are people who's CV says the right things and they hire them anyway, but other than that knowing people is the best way in and I don't know you in real life. Besides, if you really want to break into this world you'll find a way.
Regular infantry who try to go private usually end up doing low value site security. The pay ain't kinda sucks compared to stuff like convoy protection.
Get a security clearance, get some MOSs under your belt that will add to your capability. Being national guard I expect your choices will be few. I haven't been in the military so that's about all I can say about it.
Sure. But I don't know you. There's always work for muscle. If you really took those photos, then you've got a start. You've been in combat which is a big plus. I don't know how old you are, but my guess is mid 40s. There are a ton of guys mid 30s to late 40s doing this kind of work. But you also need some skills beyond "hey I can keep my head cool under fire" even though that's a big deal. You may have to pay your dues all over again by taking some of the lesser skilled and lower paying contracts. In those jobs, you'll probably be working with foreigners a lot (they take less money for jobs, but that doesn't seem to bother you based on your photos. Invest in yourself. Drop a few grand and take firearms, driving, entry, and other courses. These will help you a lot.
There are several job boards and forums specifically for this kind of stuff. Hell, I think even Monster.com has some contracts listed anymore.
The biggest hurdle to getting good pay ($650+ a day for a contract) is getting a security clearance, especially as a civilian. You'll have to network hard to get one, but it will open a ton of doors.
Depends. If you're in ROTC, I'd imagine your job choices in the military are considerably larger than someone sitting in a recruiter's office. Do your time in the military first. Preferably with combat experience, preferably with a security clearance, preferably with as many MOSs as possible.
I'm prior army EOD and I've been in combat in Afghanistan. Is EOD pretty saturated? I think my ts is still current. I'm not sure where to begin my search. Should I just sign up on a forum and introduce myself or ???
>justice department wants to prosecute
Because isis is an American proxy army. He was killing our own mercenary soldiers they can't tell you that. But that is why.
anyone remember the story a couple years back about another American prosecuted by the FBI for fighting along the Kurds? he was pictured holding an RPG and was prosecuted for some kind of BS like possessing a prohibited weapon. maybe it was washington state where the charges were filed.
EOD? You've probably seen some shit and shit accessories if you've been in before 2009. I'd imagine you'd have a good chance at getting a job. The usual suspects are Triple Canopy, Aegis, Dyncorp, G4S, L-3 (MPRI), then there are maritime companies like Trident, Neptune, and Sea Guardian. Then there are places like Tiger Swan and hasfmissions.
Given your background, as long as you're not a cowboy, a loud mouth, or kinda dumb, I'm sure you'll find something fairly easily. Don't be afraid of sucking up your pride and doing a job you think is beneath you. Sometimes you gotta pay your dues and network.
Jah jah I've got an award winning personality, as you can imagine. I've been out for about two years now and it's comes to this. What low level position would give me the best opportunity to make contacts and show people I'm not retarded? I understand that I'm not going to get to do the job I'm interested in for a couple years. Can you recommend the best group to start out with?
88A here, im doing convoys a lot now, what would my pay look like if I joined after captain's career course?
also im picking up a ranger slot soon, I assume that contractors like ranger tabs but dont give a shit about airborne and air assault, or am I wrong?
There really is no best.
So some research. http://www.privatemilitary.org/private_forces.html
There are a few guys who hang out here:
There's a start.
Nearly forgot here:
If you've got a Ranger slot, I'd go for it. There are really good exit opportunities for Rangers in contracting. From what I've heard, guys who go Ranger do the following: if they're really determined will go CAG or ISA from there after a few years, get injured and discharged, or get out after 4-10 years and make some bucks contracting.
I've had the opportunity to work with a few. Haha, nobody trusts me at first since I've don't have a military background, especially guys with special operations backgrounds, but I always pull my weight so it works out in the end.
