These are YPG-Kurds. Funny that Syria that has been usually the most censored and undersupported Kurdish region is getting volunteers nowadays.

it seems like they have guys they keep for PR and guys that actually fight, I saw another picture of foreigners in the field and they were yoked up tatted veterans with nicer gear, not babby faced dudes in clean gear made of Chinese nylon.

They have to adapt to the reality of the warfare. In some fronts they can't use heavy gear and need to be more guerilla.

westerners fighting against IS in syria

>>25557814
theres a sizeable number of westerners in active battles (sarrin, south of kobani; tal tamr, west of hasakah city, sinjar, al bashir) right now. pic related was taken on the northern outskirts of mosul

a few guys were rejected by the YPG because they had no combat experience at all and couldn't aim for shit lol
one of those guys was quoted in an article warning westerners of the dangers of fighting in syria

there was a recent combat video of some faggots with FALs speaking in southern accents near kirkuk, let me see if I can find it

guess which country he's from

anyway, on-topic
future's looking bright for the YPG and the people they protect. syrian government has put on the table an autonomy offer, granted they still perform checkpoint duties and work together on getting industry in the northeast running again. Hasakah and Qamishli are cities that once had thriving industry, but now have resorted to the basics. within that autonomy, there was a mention of citizenship for foreign fighters if they desired. if everything goes through, these guys will be offered special citizenship in the country for fighting
>>
>>25561968
I've previously asked about foreign volunteers in the YPG, so do they pretty much just use them for PR and guarding the rear? Because if so then how did the 3 who've died so far (Aussie, Greek guy, and that one German woman) get killed?

The rearguard shit was just a narrative pushed by some faggots that got rejected or performed poorly. There are westerners fighting in all of the major kurdish hotspots except for Afrin, which will heat up as the battle for aleppo gets more desparate

It is, you just need to find a way to join the kurds and the fighting zone.

It's easier if you already have someone over there, I remember an article about this French craftsman gone over there for six months because he has family in Iraq, he went back to France a few months ago after participating in a few battles.

From what I saw, you get the ammo, food and weapons, then you have to buy your own protective gear and optics. YOU ARE NOT PAID FOR IT, it's volunteer work.

>>25561907
Oh the Kurds are going to love that t shirt.

>>25564308
Yeah I realize I wouldn't get paid for it.
I honestly feel that fighting ISIS is a noble cause. I'm actually disappointed that the US has been willing to kill goat farmers for the last decade but aren't willing to fight against a group that's legitimately fucked up.
While I'm in good physical health and fitness and know my way around an AK, I don't speak the local language and deep down I'm a lazy American. If someone rolled out the red carpet for me and set everything up, I would honestly get on the plane and go. But that won't happen.
So no ISIS killing for me at this time.

>>25568896
answering the other question, yeah they're pesh volunteers. though, lately they've been asked to direct US volunteers towards the YPG and HDP-Star as they're trying to turn the peshmerga into more a professional army than simply fighters that do a lot of guerilla warfare. notice in a lot of their recent videos they have combined arms, infantry assisted convoy movements, better squad tactics when compared to a year ago. YPG and other groups are a hell of a lot more unrefined and varied but they're still good fighters

for americans, the way our government portrays Iraqi forces, FSA, assad's forces and IS make it difficult for the average person to get behind a faction in the conflict. kurds are that "fourth faction", most people hadn't even heard of them until kobani and mosul/sinjar

PKK in syria is more libertarian than leftist. syrian government is ensuring that by putting their cantons on paper. like I noted earlier the ongoing negotiations that started last week could mean that anyone who fights and lives in their little cantons are given citizenship

I guess, in a way, you could start up a different life if you wanted to, provided you don't get captured by a snackbar before this is over

reason I support the YPG is because of their taking the fight to IS and their alliances with the assyrians/yazidis. they want to take the fight to raqqa - I say let them

A disproportionate number of guys who are good all round soldiers, (fitness, discipline, accuracy camraderie etc) are pretty aestehtic. Don't know why, maybe it's an evolutionary thing which made women go wet for natural operators.

on the table is 150 but the actual numbers are more like 250-260. they're the only ones qualified to handle the heavy artillery they brought with them when the kobani campaign was first heating up. they are often attached to the YPG/FSA squads they they send out to the hundreds of objectives (villages, factories) that surround the city so they can call shit in. they've done 4 shifts now, with the current shift (culminating in the siege of the city of Sarrin to the south) being probably the last

there are also peshmerga artillery units in hasakah, helping out near tal tamir and tal brak

The big risk is that you end up fighting for or with a group that ends up on a EU/US list of terrorist organisations.

A friend of mine fought in Croatia in one of the ad hoc militias and returned to England before they were incorporated into the Croatian Army. He had some serious trouble with the police when he was identified in a photograph stood with a man wanted for war crimes. Nothing came of it but it wasn't a nice time for him.

Basically, you go and fight for these people and even if you make it back alive you better hope that they don't do anything that pisses off western intelligence down the line.

I heard on the radio, the American government was trying to convict one guy for something to do with terrorism using a weapon of mass destruction, because he used an RPG against 'the so-called Islamic State'
>>
>>25575344
I saw a story about that. Turns out the government thought he was working with a terrorist group, and they were surprised that he was being so cooperative about it, but then they realized he was working with the US backed rebels in Syria, and now they are trying to charge him with simple weapons smuggling or something retarded because they fucked up and invested way too much into fucking him to go away with out something to show for it. That government intelligence brah.
>>
>>25575344
Think of it this way. No matter what IS do to people, you've got a history with a Kurdish militia. That Kurdish militia will have all sorts of links and activities to things that pretty much every country in the western world will consider terrorist or fanatic.

If you want a bit of war then you're probably best off going to Ukraine. I wouldn't recommend that either, but it's the safer choice in terms of legality.

as I understand, at one point (like 5 years ago) an ak only cost around 300. IS came around and it shot up tremendously but they're pretty cheap again

>>25585993
apparently KRG dealers won't even consider you unless you've had a background check with the pesh

I cant answer for the ypg or if they even sell any

Weapon selection seems kinda shit for a war.

AKM yeah, M16/M4 yeah, Dragunov yeah, PKM yeah, G36 and MG3 cool but what about AR10?
>>
>>25586076
I think he said like 250 for helmet+plates though; that was the asking price

Usd?

>>25586089
Why the fuck would an AR-10 be in the Middle East?
>>
>>25583934
because you are some fucktarded literal autistic moron and you don't understand analogy, so apparently your social retardation is everyone else's problem. fuck off you special flower.

These foreign fighters are joining up to fight SAA or FSA or ISIS ??
>>
>>25586549
They are joining Kurdish forces to rek ISIS. Which is now the exact same thing as the FSA.
>>
>>25586586
They'll end up going against SAA though, once this ISIS shitstorm passes over.
>>
>>25586595
If you really think that Asaad will have the international leverage to go after Kurdistan, you are kidding yourself.

If Russia wills it, it shall be so.
>>
How do they get there?
>>
>>25586595
scroll up, already explained assad put autonomy for the kurds on the table. he's not going to attack them

If you go, be prepared to be held for a few weeks when you get back. Lots of nasty questions. I went to help train those who went over and also turned people away who were far overweight or just too stupid to understand how to fire a gun properly. Most of those turned away were either Chinese or French.

You may not be stopped on the way back, but I got paid, so I figure that must be the reason for the billion questions.

How overweight are we talking?

Hey, a few drops of ice in your blood...

1) that gun the ypg hands you will most likely be some relic from the Saddam era. Badly worn, knocked about, imprecise. There is much good to say about the AK's but after 40 years of use and abuse, don't expect too much. By contrast the 'regular' Peshmerga soldiers are expected to buy their own guns.

2) The regular route is through Bagdad airport, but you will need to have an appointment with an ypg guy. The opposition team will also be there, trying to make them go with you in their car instead. If you do I hope you have a wealthy and loving family to pay the ransom. Also avoid going through Turkey, there are isis people all over the place.

On the other hand it IS easy to get in touch with the ypg. They have a damn website.
>>
>>25589589
I didn't see much on their website in the way of contacting them though, unless you're referring to messaging them on Facebook.

This is where you might want to start considering your options for how much of an electronic footprint you want to leave from here. Which electronic devices you want to involve, which accounts etc. While noone from the govt are likely to come calling on your door tonight you WILL be noticed from the moment you send a message. Proceed accordingly.

>>25589658

If you are a pear, cankles, can barely run for 3 minutes. There are exceptions to the rule - if you have real combat experience or can bring a technical skill you learned in the military with you, they are willing to let you stay. There are a number of lard asses in the communications group; same with mechanics. If you plan on fighting you had better be able to full sprint 30 seconds or run for 4. We also had people hold a rifle up and aim for 3 minutes at a time, and anyone who couldn't do that was sent home.

only 3 posts before post limit

anyway, YPG just took over a city south of Kobani known as Serrin. this marks a major defeat for the chechen and uzbeki IS brigades stationed in the northern aleppo district. YPG plans to push west across the euphrates and flush IS out across the greater aleppo area - culminating in the siege of Manbij in the west and Tal Abyad to the east
