Creating a barrier between Isis and turkey will probably mess up their flow of money as well. They will see pushback I'm afraid..

I don't think they have a chance of regaining that terroritory while the coalition is in the sky. They can't move any heavy equipment or vbieds to that front without getting blown to hell. They only reason they are having success in Aleppo is because the coalition won't support JAF.

Kangaroos refer to sham trials as 'Egyptian courts'.

 

:rotflmao:

 

But also very sad.

No idea how accurate this is but apparently Abd el Wahhab Hamikani is some guy from Yemen who runs a Qatar foundation and some party there, who is accused by the US since a few years ago of financing Al Qaeda.

And hes now part of the pro-saudi pro-american delegation to the Yemen Geneva talks...



So Saudi Arabia is the source of Al Qaeda ideology.

Qatar and Saudi Arabia finance Al Qaeda.

Qatar and Saudi Arabia basically magically develop the clout to import all alqaeda fighters to Syria to fight their battles.

Saudi Arabia probably bombed every child and house in Yemen except any and every alqaeda area and person.

The US continues to be Saudi Arabia's ally.

The war on terrorism continues to be the declared goal and threat.

The situation in Yemen is looking increasingly dire.

 

 

حسبنا الله و نعم الوكيل..حسبنا الله و نعم الوكيل. #اليمن

 

They really need to cease the air campaign. It is only killing civilians and creating militants.

It's early but so far the Saudi wikileaks dump amounts to shit that anybody paying attention to anything could have told you. 

 

The authoritarian regime is authoritarian and uses it's piles of money to buy influence?

The YPG/Burkan al Furat offensive is the most impressive military operation in this entire war. At this rate, they might reach Raqqah by the end of July.

Probably Turks will start bombing them soon.

If there wasn't a regime/ISIS buffer they would probably have their Nusra dogs attacking them already.

So Salih Muslim says that the YPG is going to dig in and any pushes south are going to need to be Arab operations. Probably a prudent move. Given this morning's bombings/attack in Kobani you have to think that getting Jarablus by any means is a priority.

Kobani is Turkey hitting back at its allies and their kurdish plan. ISIS basically mounted the whole military attack from Turkey lol. A supposed Nato member. This is getting ridiculous.

And the daraa offensive... Even there where it was supposed to be the FSA(not that its any better but some are deluded) its alqaeda spearheading the attack. At the same time that isis attacks assad in hasaka too

Terrorist attacks in Kobani, Tunisia, Kuwait, and France. Ramadan Mubarak right?

And here come the empty statements and condemnations.

This isnt like the alqaeda days of old where terror networks were hidden.

The terrorists have their armies in the open, theyre waging war on syrian and iraqi soil, their ideology and funding is well known, their supporting countries are well known. And those who will condemn them are directly or indirectly supporting them.

Whoever wants to fight terrorism and condemn it can at least stop supporting it where its getting the strongest.
