>>190989>>190789>what do you think the future holds for Pakistan?
jackshit>with Iran lobbying to get India a permanent seat at the UNSC
If the Americans have been unable to get them a seat at the council as of yet what power does Iran have to get them one?> Iran to the west that's become the de-facto leading regional power in the Middle East
They have proven themselves to be resilient and capable no matter how much they are pressured (through military action against them or their proxies or sanctions being put on them) they have saved their allies. But they are not calling the shots in the Middle East, not yet.>Turkey being the only ME nation as the counterweight to Iranian power and influence.
They most certainly have positioned themselves to play bigger role but Qatar is their only ally in the M.E. currently, they need to do alot more to gain influence. >What do you think Iran-Pakistan relations will look like in the future?
I would like to ask, you say they are a leading regional power and they are lobbying to get India a permanent seat in the security council where the Indians (should they succeed) will be able to veto any resolution favouring us while proposing/supporting resolutions against us, in light of this what do you think our relation will look like?
To be fair there have been several meetings lately and much talk of cooperation but nothing concrete as of yet.> Pakistan-Turkey relations for that matter
They have been historically good and both sides intend to strengthen them further still.>What happens for Pakistan if all goes superb and the Taliban oust NATO from Afghanistan?
Tell me first why do you think Pakistan is involved in Afghanistan and support the Talis? and I will answer your question.>Does Pakistan just focus on India in that case since the Afghan thorn in the back of Pakistan is removed?
Well thats how the thinking goes but I have already talked to you in detail how I dont see peace coming to Afghanistan even after the Nato forces leave and the reasons for that. Focusing exclusively on India to settle Kashmir issue doesnt seem likely anytime soon.>And Saudi power and influence waning all across the Middle East (look at Yemen for the most glaring example of their decline). What does that bode for Saudi-Pakistan relations?
More gibs for Pakistan>There's also both countries being in SCO, a political, economic, and military alliance, pitting them against the West, at least on paper. If a hot WWIII broke out, do you think India and Pakistan would ally against a Western aggressor, or would they throw nukes at each others' faces?
If the Kashmir issue has yet to be resolved when WW3 breaks out this entire region is going to burn.
what is there in kashmir that makes it so important?
also why no one came with the idea of solving the issue through a referendum for the natives of kashmir?
Maybe, but no matter who would win, the other side will chimp out over the results.
Alot of things but most importantly fresh water source from glaciers for the subcontinent.> why no one came with the idea of solving the issue through a referendum for the natives of kashmir?

I see.>They have proven themselves to be resilient and capable no matter how much they are pressured (through military action against them or their proxies or sanctions being put on them) they have saved their allies. But they are not calling the shots in the Middle East, not yet.
And if/when they do? What does that bode for Pakistan?>They most certainly have positioned themselves to play bigger role but Qatar is their only ally in the M.E. currently, they need to do alot more to gain influence.
I see. Do they have a chance of gaining influence in Pakistan or at the very least gaining an ally in Pakistan?>I would like to ask, you say they are a leading regional power and they are lobbying to get India a permanent seat in the security council where the Indians (should they succeed) will be able to veto any resolution favouring us while proposing/supporting resolutions against us, in light of this what do you think our relation will look like?
Hah, fair enough, didn't really think that one through.>They have been historically good and both sides intend to strengthen them further still.
I see.>Tell me first why do you think Pakistan is involved in Afghanistan and support the Talis? and I will answer your question.
To remove a potential India ally and a potential second front in a hot war between India and Pakistan.>Well thats how the thinking goes but I have already talked to you in detail how I dont see peace coming to Afghanistan even after the Nato forces leave and the reasons for that.
Refresh my memory, it's been shite for a long time.>Focusing exclusively on India to settle Kashmir issue doesnt seem likely anytime soon.
And even then, the Kashmir issue is involving 3 nuclear powers bordering each other, leaving a permanent stalemate unless one/two/all decides to watch the area burn.>More gibs for Pakistan
Hah!>If the Kashmir issue has yet to be resolved when WW3 breaks out this entire region is going to burn.
And what in your opinion is the most realistic
way to resolve the Kashmir issue?
Considering India wants to keep Kashmir firmly in its grip, and has claim to relatively small areas in China and large areas of Pakistan all the way up to Afghan-China corridor.
And China's not gonna yield an inch without massive concessions, and has its own claims on parts of India, mainly eastern India.
And Pakistan has claim to all of Indian Kashmir and a very small part of China, with India and Pakistan being mortal enemies.And
all three countries involved have nukes enough to turn that area into a nuclear wasteland, especially since Pakistan's got more nukes than India and right now are set to surpass UK and France in nuclear quantity sometime in the future.
A referendum's not gonna succeed since like Lawgoy said, it'll be rigged by both sides and lead to a major shitstorm.
It happened back in November when Saudis went all out to try to force a military solution before Burger deadline was up.
>>191074>And what in your opinion is the most realistic way to resolve the Kashmir issue?
status quo>but it's not a resolution
any other option will lead to more loses than gains in the region and kashmir would have no value as a nuclear wasteland, especially not it's water reserves
Yeah, just chalk that one up to me being a conspiratard eager for happenings and new Shitmaps>>191100
So all sides have to end their claims? I don't see that happening any time soon. So the Kashmir issue will be permanently unresolved.>>191139>>191145
>>191172>So all sides have to end their claims?
nope, just keep hurling insults and sometimes artillery shell at each other till the end of human existence
Speaking at a NATO summit, the alliance’s chief on Thursday said that Georgia will join its ranks.
At a joint press conference in Brussels alongside Georgian President Giorgi Margverlashvili, Jens Stoltenberg said that the allied leaders reaffirmed the move on Wednesday.
Praising the progress Georgia is making on reforms, Stoltenberg said that NATO will continue to work with its government to prepare the country for membership.
Earlier, during a joint press conference with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, Stoltenberg said that the situation in eastern Ukraine remains "serious".
"NATO is firm in our support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. And we strongly condemn Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea," he added.
Russia’s 2014 illegal annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea region led Western powers, including the U.S., to impose sanctions on Moscow.
Along with the U.N. General Assembly, the U.S., the EU, and Turkey also do not recognize Crimea as Russian territory.
Since the annexation, Ukraine has been wracked by conflict in its eastern regions with Russian-backed separatists, leading to more than 10,000 deaths, according to the U.N.
A two-day NATO summit started on Wednesday with the attendance of 29 NATO heads of state and government to make important decisions on the future of the alliance.
The summit is discussing important decisions on the alliance’s future and other major topics, including strengthening deterrence and defense, counter-terrorism and stability, strengthening cooperation with the EU, modernization, sharing responsibility and common values, and the transatlantic union.
>Please be bullshit, because that's crossing one of Russia's red lines if NATO is actually admitting Georgia.>Yes, Doc, I know that it's illegal for NATO to admit Georgia when there's South Ossetia and Abkhazia, but do these people seem like they're bound by law, even if it means all of NATO is directly involved in a territory dispute with Russia?

Not happening, people are angry, but not angry enough.

Group of Israelis are suspected of running a child sex trafficking network in Colombia. According to a report by the Times of Israel the number of suspects is 14, while Haaretz claims it is 12.
The office of Colombia’s attorney general said eight of the suspects have been arrested, including six Israelis.
The video shows Colombian police carry out an arrest at one of the locations:
5/5 #ATENCIÓN 8 presuntos responsables de explotación y esclavitud sexual en #Colombia fueron capturados: 6 israelíes, entre ellos uno de los señalados cabecillas, Mor Zohar; y 2 colombianos, entre ellos un policía que presuntamente entregó información privilegiada de operativos pic.twitter.com/TpUzudDDU6
— Fiscalía Colombia (@FiscaliaCol) December 9, 2018
The alleged sex trafficking ring provided Israeli tourists with “tourism packages” which included prostitutes, some of whom were minors, who received between 200,000 pesos ($63) to 400,000 pesos ($126) in return for sexual services.
Colombian authorities said that Israeli tourists would stay at hotels and take yacht trips and go to private parties with drugs and alcohol, in which women and minors were offered as “sex slaves.”
The members of the trafficking ring will be charged with murder, conspiracy, human trafficking, trafficking in minors, drug manufacturing, providing prostitution services and money laundering. All of the suspects were wanted by international police agency Interpol on suspicion of pimping and soliciting minors for prostitution.
Authorities raided a number of properties including a spa in Santa Marta, a hostel in Bogota, and a building known as “Casa Medellin.” The suspects were arrested in a number of locations around the country, and property worth around $45,000 was seized as part of the investigation.
The Colombian Attorney General posted a video on Twitter claiming that it showed properties owned by the trafficking ring.
3/3 #ATENCIÓN Allanados bienes a nombre de presuntos proxenetas, como Balneario Benjamín(#Taganga), Hotel Casa Medellín y hostal Casa Iftach(#Bogotá). Propiedades habrían servido de hospedaje a turistas israelíes que habrían auspiciado explotación sexual y consumo estupefacientes pic.twitter.com/X4dpDAj7Yf
— Fiscalía Colombia (@FiscaliaCol) December 9, 2018
Colombian media reported that the leader of the ring is an Israeli named Mor Zohar, while one of the arrested is a Colombian police officer.
The attorney general’s office said 150 billion pesos ($47.3 million) of property has been seized during the investigation, including hotels, hostels and other tourism related businesses.
The investigation into the trafficking ring has been happening since June 2016, when an Israeli citizen – Shai Azran was murdered in Medellin. The prime suspect of the murder was Assi Ben-Mosh, a 44-yaer-old Israeli who has operated in Colombia since 2009. He was arrested in the Netherlands in 2003 on suspicions of leading an international drug trafficking network.
Authorities tracked Ben-Mosh’s activities in Colombia and found that he was the owner of a hotel in Santa Marta, Hotel Benjamin, that offered the “tourism packages.” He together with Zohar also allegedly organized parties at which drugs and sex services were sold.
Police in Colombia arrested 18 people in a raid on Hotel Benjamin hostel in Cartagena in July. The suspects are accused of running a sex ring, recruiting young girls from Colombia and Venezuela and forcing them to work as sex slaves.
The network is suspected of operating in a number of cities in Colombia, including the capital Bogota, Medellin, Cartagena and Santa Marta.https://southfront.org/colombia-cracks-down-on-child-sex-trafficking-network-run-by-israelis/
Day of the Shoah when?
Hey Ebin, the Australian ABC aired a "comedy" sketch tonight which showed an ISIS fighter with a map in the background.
Do you know which map it is? Is it one of yours? It looks similar to some of the ones you upload to Wikipedia, but it looks like it's from 2014 - 2015, which may be before your time?
Just thought I'd check to see what you know, as I'm sure it would be nice for you to see the influence your work is having on the world.

Yeah, those OPs are no good by themselves. The TFSA (and SAA too for that matter) can simply go around them. The only way to protect the Kurds is to put burgers all along the Turkish border instead of grouping up in OPs.
>Russian military moved S-300 system near US forces in east Syria – report
BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:50 P.M.) – The Russian military allegedly moved their S-300 air defense system near the front-lines of the U.S. Coalition forces in eastern Syria, Saudi-based Asharq Al-Aswat claimed, citing diplomatic sources.
“In the past days, Russia began moving some parts of the S-300 sophisticated system to Deir Ezzor, a step that would make the flyover of coalition planes (in missions) against ISIS east of the Euphrates River more difficult,” the Asharq Al-Aswat sources claimed.
The Syrian and Russian forces have not yet commented on these claims by the publication.
On October 1st of this year, the Russian Federation delivered the S-300 air defense system to Syria.
The move to deliver the S-300 system to Syria came just two-weeks after the downing of the IL-20 reconnaissance aircraft off the coast of Latakia.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/russian-military-moved-s-300-system-near-us-forces-in-east-syria-report/
Big if true.
>>192088>With that district secured captured
Well if they manage to block the advance on the only asphalted road in a radius of 200km, they'd slow down the (hypothetical) Turkish offense.
any sign of significant/material support to the yellow vest protesters from outside France?
>>192308>for some reason, my post with text kept timing out
Phew, rebuilding Afghan Shitmap took bloody forever, but fixing district locations and researching district boundaries themselves and comparing them with the icons to create more accurate frontlines was well worth the time.
macron did a speech where he made some significant changes (increase of minimal wage by 100 euros, some things for the elderly, no taxes on extra hours worked etc)
some protester went home considering it was enough the others stayed because they think this is a scam (in the sense that overall this isn't enough changes and they're being ripped off on the long term)
it is expected to be more brutal this week end
That's not what I asked tho. I wouldn't be surprised if there was covert support in one way or another from a third country to exacerbate EU chaos. But given the state of EU citizens lately with their muh dignity concerns, they hardly need much help
yeah i read too fast
so to answer your question
no, on the ground it looks 100% organic plus it's not like the yellow vest have TOW or pick up trucks with AA guns on the back so i really wonder what type of support could they have received if they received any

Well, with TFSA being pictured on the Turkish side of the border directly across at Tel Abyad, he just might do it. even though said pictures were taken last time and nothing happened.
Also, take note of the Russian base that's right on the edge of the 55km exclusion zone at Tanf, with advanced AA and heavy rocket artillery being deployed there within the next few days.
They're gonna blow the shit outta anyone that leaves that zone - no more ISIS popping up in South Syria.

>Wikipedia enlarges Yemen Warmap yet again, thus I have to rebuild it yet again>inb4 they enlarge Afghan Warmap again like they did yesterday
why do you have to adapt? can't you just do your map on your own side without having to use their templates?
Well, I have to use their templates so that every update, everything lines up perfectly and just looks neat in general. Plus it's much faster for future updates.
Besides, enlarging the warmaps is a good thing because it yields more detail - the more detailed a map is, the better it is, to a degree, and enlarged Yemen warmap means more detail.
The only issue I have really is the time it takes to rebuild the Shitmaps when they do this.
also the name is shabnam mobarez
why can't you update on previous maps?
what i meant was why not using previous shitmap and do the ms paint over the new gains
Because new icons get added>"Just draw new icons"
Wouldn't be as precise, I would get the locations off if I did it by hand. Then there's the issue of drawing in contested icons, and then reverting them back to dots of same/different color - especially if it's right on the border, I'd have to redraw the border as well and it would get more and more messed up.>tl;dr too much hassle in the long-term
>>192476>Wouldn't be as precise
but the guys at wikipedia are doing it off hand so you can be just as precise as them
Hell yeah, give us that full HD 1080p autism
There's coding involved Doc.

And the module's been split into two because too much detail led to crashing :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Precision (input village/district coordinates for an icon), simplicity (just change the code to change an icon), and speed (no drawing by hand).
ok thanks for the explanations
although i must ask
since your maps are made for a smaller audience (and thus allow for looser tolerances), why not changing the gains through ms paint brushing if it doesn't entail a major icon/borders shift instead of forcing yourself to re adapt wiki map every time they fuck with them
someone sure has a shitload of freetime
anyways thanks for the informations
New Rules Of Engagement Between Syria And Israel, As Russia Changes Its Position
According to these sources, “Russia has informed Israel that there are Russian officers present at every Syrian or Iranian military base and that any strike against Syrian or Iranian objectives would hit Russian forces as well. Putin will not allow his soldiers and officers to be struck down by Israel’s direct or indirect bombing”.
Syria will adopt a new rule of engagement with Israel now that Russia has taken a tougher and clearer stance on the conflict between Israel and the “Axis of the Resistance”.
Henceforth, Damascus will be responding to any Israeli strike. If it damages a specific military target it will reply with a strike against a similar objective in Israel. Decision makers in Damascus said “Syria will not hesitate to hit an Israeli airport if Damascus airport is targeted and hit by Israel. This will be with the consent of the Russian military based in the Levant”.
The new Syrian rule of engagement – according to the source – is now as follows: an airport will be hit if Israel hits an airport, and any attack on a barracks or command and control centre will result in an attack on similar target in Israel. It appears that the decision has been taken at the highest level and a clear “bank of objectives” has now been set in place.https://ejmagnier.com/2018/12/14/new-rules-of-engagement-between-syria-and-israel-as-russia-changes-its-position/

Are credits transferrable to Burgerland? Wearing one of those you could study at the University of Hawaii convincingly.
U.S. officials have threatened Free Syrian Army (FSA) against participating in the upcoming Turkish military operation in northeastern Syria, the Turkish Anadolu Agency revealed on December 15.
In a message allegedly sent to different FSA factions and to the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces (SMDK), Washington vowed to strike any group that would participate in the attack and to end its relations with it.
“US forces and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are intertwined so that SDF cannot be attacked without aggression and confrontation with Coalition Forces and U.S. forces and advisers,” U.S. officials said in the message, and added: “When elephants dance, you must stay away from the dance floor.”
In its first response to Turkey’s planned attack against the SDF three days ago, the U.S. warned from “unilateral military action” into northeastern Syria without naming Turkey. The new privet messages to the FSA are much harsher.
During the last few days, opposition sources confirmed that factions of the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) and the Syrian National Army (SNA) will participate in the upcoming operation with more than 15,000 fighters.
The NFL and the SNA have not commented on the new U.S. threats yet. However, given the fact that these groups get their financial support from Turkey, the will likely ignore these threats.
An armed conflict between the U.S. and the Turkish-backed FSA may change the entire situation in northern Syria, as the last is relying on Washington’s support to keep Damascus government forces away from its last strongholds in the province of Idlib.https://southfront.org/u-s-threatens-fsa-dont-participate-in-turkey-attack-on-northeastern-syria/

either im looking at it wrong or there has been a fuck up in the maps.

It seems so.

Nope, it's in Daykundi, refer to the post above yours. I've pinned down the approximate location for the Taliban positions in Gizab District - they're close to Nili District.
Wait a second, there IS a Gizab in Uruzgan province, at least on the Shitmap (1st pic)

>U.S. Navy may stop docking in Haifa after Chinese take over port
WASHINGTON – The US Navy has acknowledged that its longstanding operations in Haifa may change once a Chinese firm takes over the civilian port in 2021, prompting Israel’s national security cabinet to revisit the arrangement, The Jerusalem Post has learned.
Haifa, the nation’s largest port city, regularly hosts joint US-Israeli naval drills and visits from American vessels. But a 2015 agreement between Israel’s Transportation Ministry and Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG) – a company in which the Chinese government has a majority stake – has raised intelligence and security concerns that are only now prompting an interagency review.
That agreement granted SIPG control over the port for 25 years. The Chinese company has committed $2 billion to the project and, according to state-run media, plans to transform the port’s bay terminal into the largest harbor in the country.
A representative of the Sixth Fleet said the navy’s partnership with Israel remains “steadfast.”
“Our US Navy ships frequently visit Haifa, Israel, for both US-Israel bilateral military activity and port calls,” Commander Kyle Raines told the Post, when asked whether China’s coming presence might affect fleet operations in the Mediterranean city.
“For now, there are no changes to our operations in Israel,” the commander continued. “I can’t speculate on what might or might not occur in 2021.”
Three sources familiar with the matter said that due to concerns that US defense officials privately shared with their Israeli counterparts, the Israeli government has launched “a review of the agreement at a high level,” specifically among members of the inner cabinet.
According to one source, several members expressed worry that sensitive infrastructure matters have not been properly vetted by Israel’s full national security cabinet prior to approval.
“You don’t want a decision that was made ostensibly for business reasons to have an impact on Israel’s relationship with the American navy,” the source said.
The deal was signed off by Israel Katz, who was serving as transportation minister at the time and has remained in the position since. He occupies a seat in the national security cabinet.
A senior IDF officer confirmed that the review is under way. But it is unclear whether Israel has any recourse to allay US concerns with the China project, which is already sealed and in motion.
“Historically, it’s interesting to see [that] the whole awakening is now when the contract was signed in 2015 – it begs the question what the hype is all about. It’s probably more conducive now because of the US-China tensions over trade, national security and the like,” said Assaf Orion, a retired Israeli brigadier-general and expert on Israel-China relations now based at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. “There is always a question of encouraging investment versus managing risk.”
“The bottom line here is that Israel will make a fatal mistake by doing either or both of the following: disregarding China’s potential to advance Israel’s economy, and doing it with our eyes shut,” Orion continued. “We must keep our eyes open, fully aware of the risk management requirements and its possible impact on the US-Israel relationship.”
Retired Israeli and American defense and intelligence officials raised concerns throughout the summer that Chinese management of the port might jeopardize America’s operations there.
The former head of Israel’s Mossad, Efraim Halevy, sounded an alarm in recent months over the security implications of China’s creeping presence across Israel’s critical infrastructure. And retired admiral Gary Roughead, ex-chief of US naval operations, warned that a Chinese-run seaport in the bay could force the navy to dock its warships elsewhere.
“The Chinese port operators will be able to monitor closely US ship movements, be aware of maintenance activity and could have access to equipment moving to and from repair sites and interact freely with our crews over protracted periods,” Roughead remarked during a conference last month at the University of Haifa.
“Significantly, the information systems and new infrastructure integral to the ports and the likelihood of information and electronic surveillance systems jeopardize US information and cybersecurity,” he added.
Israel has its own security concerns in Haifa to consider as well. The seaport in question is not far from an Israeli navy base where the country maintains its fleet of submarines, which foreign press has reported are capable of carrying and launching nuclear missiles. Domestic critics say that China’s shipping operations in close proximity to the fleet amount to an unacceptable security risk.
This would not be the first time that the Sixth Fleet altered its operations in Haifa due to security concerns. In the aftermath of the USS Cole bombing in Yemen in 2000, and during the Second Intifada, the frequency of port calls fell dramatically and USO Haifa was permanently shuttered.
But neither of those events were within Israeli government control.
The Prime Minister’s Office, Transportation Ministry and Foreign Ministry declined requests for comment on this report.https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/US-Navy-may-stop-docking-in-Haifa-after-Chinese-take-over-port-574414

US President Donald Trump gave a positive response to Turkey’s operation east of the Euphrates, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on December 17 following a phone call with the US President, according to Turkish media.
“We can start our operation any moment now in Syrian territory at any place, especially along the 500-kilometer border, without harming U.S. soldiers,” Erdogan said at the opening ceremony at Mevlana Square in central Konya province.
Erdogan said that he had told his Trump that “terrorists” must leave the region east of the Euphrates River.
“If they don’t go, we will send them,” he said. “The terror corridor [in Syria] is disturbing us. Since we are partners with the US, we must do this.”
The Turkish President also called on the US to uphold to the Manbij deal to clear the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) from the region.
“Our fight against terrorism in the Syrian territory will continue until a political solution is opened,” Erdogan said.
Last weekend, Erdogan announced that Turkey is about to launch to a military operation against the YPG in the area east of the Euphrates. According to sources in pro-Turkish militant groups, about 15,000 members of pro-Turkish militant factions are ready to participate in this attack.https://southfront.org/trump-gives-positive-response-to-turkeys-operation-east-of-euphrates-erdogan/

As Much as i would like for Thrackerzod to pull us out of Syria, I Don't think his isreali puppet masters will let him.
Didn't Trump, the Senate and House, recently approve a ridiculous large bulk of cash to send to Israel for their "defense". Or if he hasn't he probably will. And if there is one thing you probably can rely on it is that if you throw enough money at the Jews they will agree to almost anything.

According to a Syrian military source nearby, the National Liberation Front attacked the YPG’s positions near the Tal Rifa’at area.
The attack by the Turkish-backed rebels was reportedly conducted from their stronghold in Mare’, which is located just south of the Turkish border.

According to local reports, the Saudi-led Coalition carried out a powerful airstrike on a Houthi command meeting that was being held in the Hajjah Governorate of northwestern Yemen.
The total number of Houthi commanders killed is still unknown; however, the local reports indicate over ten casualties already.
This airstrike by the Saudi Coalition was conducted in response to the Houthi missile strikes on the Asir province of southern Saudi Arabia.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/several-houthi-commanders-killed-in-saudi-airstrike-in-northern-yemen/

I know, I know. And it is not out of character for him to do the opposite. The chance of him turning 180 and instead of withdrawing choose to send more troops to Syria is about equal. But it is not that often he makes an edited promotion video for his policies. The reason I might think he actually wants to withdraw is because he has an election he needs to win in two years. And getting the troops home might give him an leg up in that race.
You've got a point there, but I don't listen to words - I listen to actions
If he actually does pull US troops out of Syria, that'll get him a few points in my book. Get US troops out of Afghanistan, and I'd even consider voting for him in 2020.

They seemed pretty intent on fucking Turkey over. I think the only reason for the withdrawal - if it's true - is because they don't want to get fired on by Turkish soldiers because Erdogan's actually serious about the operation.
But it's basically what you just said, just that when push came to shove the US caved in.>-Even though Syria is a lost cause they still can maintain some form of control in Iraq especially if the tweet linked below is true they can involve fuck around in the so called Shia crescent.

>France to remain in Syria despite US withdrawal
BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 A.M.) – The French military will remain inside of Syria despite U.S. President Donald Trump’s announcement that his forces would be returning home, the AFP reported this morning.
Citing France’s Euphrates Affairs Minister Nathalie Loiseau, the French military will continue to fight the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) inside Syria until they are fully defeated.
“For now of course we remain in Syria,” Loiseau told CNews TV, adding “the fight against terrorism is not over.”
The French military has been active participant in the U.S. Coalition’s ongoing fight against the Islamic State forces inside Syria and Iraq.
France currently has no diplomatic ties with the Syrian government, but they are allied with the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who control at least a quarter of the country.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/breaking-france-to-remain-in-syria-despite-us-withdrawal/

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – The Turkish Minister of Defense Hulusi Akar stated during his visit in Qatar on Thursday that his armed forces are preparing to kickoff their long-awaited military operation east of the Euphrates.
“We have Manbij and east of the Euphrates ahead of us right now. We’re working intensely in this regard,” he said, as quoted by the Anadolu News Agency.
The Turkish Minister of Defense then threatened to bury the Kurdish forces inside their trenches that have been recently dug along the Syrian border.
According to Akar, the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG), who he has labeled as ‘terrorists’, is said to be “digging some trenches and tunnels in Manbij and east of the Euphrates. Whatever they dig, trenches or tunnels … when the time comes they will be buried in the trenches that they dig. Of this there should be no doubt.”
Akar added, “We are following developments closely. Operational and intelligence units of the Turkish Republic have been making every kind of effort that they can and continuing to work night and day to discharge their duties in the best way.”https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/turkish-mod-says-kurdish-forces-will-be-buried-in-northern-syria/

BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – Not long after accusing the Houthi forces of violating the ceasefire agreement in Hodeidah, the Saudi Coalition unleashed a big assault against the Yemeni group inside the province.
According to report from western Yemen, the Saudi Coalition launched at least thirteen anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM) and four dozen artillery shells towards the Houthi positions in and around Hodeidah.
The Saudi Coalition attack concentrated on the area near the Hodeidah Airport and the strategic Hays District in the western part of the province.

>Putin says Turkey and Russia reached compromise on Syria
Moscow and Ankara have been able to reach a compromise on resolving the Syrian crisis despite the divergence of opinion on some issues, Russian President Vladimir Putin told reporters at his annual news conference.
“We should be satisfied with the development of Russian-Turkish relations in the economy and security spheres. Although our interests do not coincide sometimes, we do find compromise solutions on resolving the Syrian crisis. We respect the Turkish people’s national interests in this direction. We see that our Turkish partners are likewise ready to seek a compromise and reach that compromise with us for the good of the situation in Syria, for the good of the fight against terrorism and for the benefit of strengthening our relations,” the Russian leader said.
Putin noted that ties between Russia and Turkey were expanding. “In spite of the fact that Turkey is a NATO member-country and honors its commitments as a member of the alliance, it pursues an independent foreign policy.” “We appreciate that very much, this creates the conditions for predictability and stability of our relations,” he stressed.
The Russian president pointed to the Turkish president’s role in cementing bilateral relations. “We hope the same trend will continue under the leadership of Mr. [Recep Tayyip] Erdogan,” he added.
Answering a question about the role of founder of the Republic of Turkey Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, Putin said, “Ataturk was certainly an outstanding figure in Turkish history. He added a new bright chapter to the preservation and restoration of the Turkish statehood and did a lot for that.”
“He was a great friend of Russia, cooperated with Russia, worked together with it, and we appreciate that very much,” the president said. “Ataturk created the modern Turkish state and laid the foundation for it.”.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/putin-says-turkey-and-russia-reached-compromise-on-syria/

Jej, the absolute fucking state.
Ukraine is preparing for another war provocation in the Kerch Strait area in an attempt to instigate military tensions in the region.
On December 19th, Oleksandr Turchynov, Ukrainian Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council said that the Ukrainian Navy is planning to send ships to pass through the Kerch Strait, with officials from the OSCE and other international organizations on board.
“We are systematically working on strengthening the coastal defense of the Black and Azov seas. To this end, new and upgraded missile systems will be involved. This will allow us not only to effectively counteract any landing operations but also to destroy any ship threatening our country at a 300 km distance even when it is located at the home port, – he pointed out. – We must prove to the whole world that Ukraine has not lost its positions in the Sea of Azov and that this is a sea where international law is in force, and both Ukrainian and foreign ships can stay there,” Turchynov said in an interview with BBC Ukraine.
Furthermore, he claimed that the Ukrainian warships would continue to pass through the Kerch Strait.
“This is a matter of principle for us. If we stop and yield, Russia will actually fulfill its task of seizing the Sea of Azov and present new self-defined sea borders in the Black Sea to the world, de facto legalizing the occupation of the Crimea.”
He also said that international representatives from the OSCE and other organizations had been invited to take part in the passage from the Ukrainian Black Sea ports to the Ukrainian ports on the Sea of Azov coast.
“We will invite representatives of the OSCE and other international organizations to visit our ships in order to prove to the whole world that Ukraine and its sailors do not violate any laws and international rules. We have no alternative to such actions.”
When Turchynov was asked what would happen if Russia would for some reason detain the international representatives from the OSCE and possibly NATO, Turchynov claimed that Russia would be wary of the international community’s focus on this issue and not “risk acting aggressively.”
But, “if the Kerch Strait incident is left unattended, if the Ukrainian sailors are not immediately released, then the civilized world will in fact recognize that Russia has the right to any aggression, to any changes in borders it wishes, and will not bear responsibility for any of it!”
Then he continued by saying:
“Let’s be honest; the Russian Federation was condemned not punished. After such an act of aggression, the sanctions against Russia should be strengthened significantly, and appropriate measures should be taken against the Russian fleet around the world, otherwise the consequences would be more bloody and dangerous, not only for Ukraine, but for other countries.”
He was also asked regarding the imposition of martial law. Turchynov said that when the Ukrainian ships were seized and there were injuries, that was unwarranted aggression and that required a response.
Russia has maintained that it does not wish for and will not initiate a military escalation with Ukraine and there is no evidence to back-up any of the Kiev government’s claims of the allegedly Russian preparations for a full-scale invasion. However, Moscow will be forced to respond if the Kiev government stage another provocation near the Kerch Strait. There are no doubts that the Kiev government understands this well and is intentionally working to escalate the situation in the region.https://southfront.org/ukraine-plans-to-sail-warships-through-kerch-strait-with-osce-nato-representatives-on-board/

I also noticed the Taliban being friendly towards the Hazari shias, another good development showing the Taliban are maturing.
>>193657>I also noticed the Taliban being friendly towards the Hazari shias, another good development showing the Taliban are maturing.
Yeah, the Taliban of today are nothing like the Taliban of 2001, they've become more pragmatic, allowed a higher quality of life including internet penetration into Afghanistan - while keeping the Western (((degeneracy))) in check ofc. Doc can fill you in on the details of their changes.
Speaking of Hazaras, the Taliban are penetrating deep
into Hazara areas and I've seen pics of Hazara among Taliban ranks.
>>193645> this place so active
don't get fooled, it's only temporary
usually it's very slow but that's better since quality>quantity
>>193657>I also noticed the Taliban being friendly towards the Hazari shias,
the hazara are pro kabul regime loyalist so they end up clashing with taliban
best bets is IS-K starts slaughtering them because "muh shias" so they find a common enemy with taliban
but as long as they'll suck US dicks, then they wont be in great terms with taliban
>>193668>don't get fooled, it's only temporary
I've been here before and this is fantastic compared to then. With recent and upcoming events unfolding i hope it doesn't die again, atleast for a while. I'll contribute what i can.>>193670
From what i can tell they're already getting slaughtered by IS-K. If Kabul can't provide security and Taliban continues to tolerate them for their religion there could be greater sways towards the Taliban, which seems to be their plan.
The Taliban is a Sunni fundamentalist group with (at least former) ties to al-Qaeda. Any Afghan Shia would be retarded if he has no suspicions of them.
Unless IS-K is the only alternative to the Taliban, it makes sense for them to support Kabul.
>There are several sources as well stating the relationship between the Taliban and Iran in recent years. This said to occur from leadership change in the Taliban itself. Pro-Iran media outlets have also reported that the Taliban has included Shia Hazara fighters into its ranks. The Taliban have also condemned ISIS linked attacks on the Hazara Shia minority.
more like opportunists.>IS-K starts slaughtering them because "muh shias" so they find a common enemy with taliban
They have been getting the shit bombed out of them(in Kabul mostly) by IS-K yet their militias have never fought against them.>>193674>The Taliban is a Sunni fundamentalist group with (at least former) ties to al-Qaeda. Any Afghan Shia would be retarded if he has no suspicions of them
True but then again>For nearly 18 years, Afghanistan’s hard-line Islamist Taliban movement largely refrained from attacking the country’s predominately Shi’ite Hazara minority.
But the Taliban recently began targeting Hazara-inhabited regions in the central provinces of Uruzgan and Ghazni. Hundreds have been killed and thousands displaced by the fighting, which began in late October.
The fighting was apparently provoked by the breakdown of a longstanding agreement between the two, according to former Taliban members and Ghazni locals. Hazara leaders, for their part, deny they had engaged in any written or verbal understanding with the insurgents. The Taliban regime is accused of harshly persecuting the beleaguered minority during its stint in power in the 1990s.
Nazar Muhammad Mutmaeen, a Kabul-based former Taliban official, says both the Taliban and Hazara community -- which is spread over several provinces in central Afghanistan -- largely respected an understanding that required them to keep out of each other’s affairs.
“The understanding was that the Taliban will not be harmed by the Hazaras while members of Hazara militias, too, will refrain from traveling to regions controlled by the Taliban,” Mutmaeen told Radio Free Afghanistan.
He says an increase in the number of rural territories controlled by the Taliban has prompted authorities across the country to engage in secret local deals. “The Hazaras concluded the most deals,” he said.
He says this agreement collapsed after fighting broke out between Hazara commander Abdul Hakim Shujae and the Taliban in Uruzgan Province in October.
“Shujae had gone into the areas the Taliban had banned him from traveling to. This is why the Taliban first attacked Shujae and then extended their fighting into Malistan and Jaghori districts in [neighboring Ghazni Province],” he said.https://gandhara.rferl.org/a/afghanistan-why-are-the-taliban-attacking-hazaras/29604830.html
>>193676>This said to occur from leadership change in the Taliban itself.
Half true. Relationship between them started growing after it became apparent to Iran that their Northern Alliance proxies have mostly been subverted by US after helping them invade Afghanistan. They setup up the Mashad Shura and have been working with since them.
There's so much disinformation about the burgers pull out of Syria.
The burgers are saying they'll fuck off from Syria in 60-100 days.
Can't remember who, but some source said they'll leave the northwestern part of the SDF territory first (i guess Manbij, Ayn-el-arab(Kobane), Tel Abyad) and continue fighting in Hajin before pulling out.
Some sources are saying they have stopped the airstrikes completely, certainly meaning they'll fuck off instantly. It corroborates with Trumps statement of letting Syria/Iran/Russia handle ISIS, but not the 60-100 day statement.
Is there a clear story on this?
The SDF has to be quick with letting SAA take over the burgers position in the northwest, if not it does seem like TFSA/t*rks will strike the moment the burgers leave.
The least the SAA has to take (if it is true that the burgers will gradually leave) is the M-4 highway from Manbij to Qamishli (or the Lafarge cement plant military base, judging on what parts the burgers leave from).
>>193674>Any Afghan Shia would be retarded if he has no suspicions of them.
AQ and other Sunni radicals have been here waaaaay before 2001 yet they didn't get the ISIS treatment
Hazaras are just the opportunistic shabbos of afghanistan
>from Hajin :>ISIS is launching huge attack, heavy clashes are taking place there.>only 35% percent from Hajin is liberated by our forces.>we think that ISIS will keep launching attacks in the future.>everybody should be aware that #ISIS is still stronghttps://twitter.com/mustefa2bali/status/1076072388452929536
This is confusing, 35%?
Surely they must mean 35% of the entire pocket and not just the town?
Sounds mostly like they're just trying to plead for the burgers to stay forever.
>>193659>I've seen pics of Hazara among Taliban ranks.
I haven't seen it, but i've seen pictures of Taliban being friendly with Hazara villagers, so it's not too far fetched.
>>193685>i've seen pictures of Taliban being friendly with Hazara villagers
taliban has always restrained from pointlessly making enemies
the point is if hazaras are being introduced into taliban ranks it'll be quite new and odd
it's not taliban plans to create a multireligious group especially considering the AQ recruits that already fight with them in their ranks
during sov-afg war shia militias and sunnis mujahedin (although friendly to each other) didn't make a merged group and tended to fight in their separate organizations
so I highly doubt that taliban would include hazaras in their ranks

>Taliban to Kabul: Scrap security pact with Washington
The Taliban say the Afghan government if it is really interested in peace parleys with the insurgent movement, should immediately scrap a security pact with the United States.
President Ashraf Ghani’s administration had signed the Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA) with the US in 2014 -- three days after the national unity government came into being.
For months, the international community has been stressing the need for face-to-face talks between Kabul and Taliban representatives on a negotiated end to the 17-year-old conflict.
But the Taliban have refused meeting Afghan leaders, saying the government in Kabul does not have the power to take important decisions. Therefore, the rebel group argues, it wants to negotiate Afghanistan’s future with the US.
On Friday, a statement on Taliban’s website explained why they had declined a meeting with the Afghan government delegation in the UAE capital two days back.
The main agenda item, the insurgents said, pertained to the US pullout from Afghanistan. A possible threat to the US-led Western world from Afghanistan was another American concern that the Taliban addressed.
In return, the US should set free Taliban prisoners, remove names of militant leaders from the blacklist and recognise their political office to build confidence and take forward the nascent dialogue, the statement added.
The Taliban explained they did not meet the Afghan delegation, because Kabul was not empowered to address the issues discussed at the UAE meeting.
The statement said Kabul, it was still interested in reaching an understanding with the Taliban, should immediately walk out of BSA and tell US troops to leave the country.https://www.pajhwok.com/en/2018/12/21/taliban-kabul-scrap-security-pact-washington

>US military sends large convoy to eastern Syria despite withdrawal announcement – report
BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:35 A.M.) – The U.S. military sent a large convoy of reinforcements and equipment to the eastern region of Syria on Friday, despite Donald Trump’s withdrawal announcement on Wednesday.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), “despite the American decision to withdraw, tens of trucks loaded with reinforcements and equipment head towards east of Euphrates.”
The decision to send these reinforcements to eastern Deir Ezzor comes after the SOHR reported that the U.S. Coalition constructed a new military base in the former Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) stronghold of Hajin.
On Friday morning, the U.S. continued their daily airstrikes over eastern Deir Ezzor, paving the way for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to score a new advance east of the Euphrates River.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/us-military-sends-large-convoy-to-eastern-syria-despite-withdrawal-announcement-report/
>Greece threatens NATO ally Turkey over Aegean islets
Greece’s top military brass have fired off a set of unusually stern warnings to Turkey, threatening to crush its troops if they dare to land on any disputed islet in the Aegean Sea – but Ankara didn’t mince its words either.
Reacting to violations of Greek airspace by Turkish jets over the Aegean, Defense Minister Panos Kammenos warned that Ankara would pay a price.
“If they make the slightest move, we will crush them,” Kammenos threatened. Athens wants peace and harmony, he said, but it won’t “concede a single centimeter” of its land.
The minister was visiting a military outpost on the small Aegean island of Leros, so the bellicose rhetoric could be explained by his desire to raise the troops’ morale. But it was also echoed by Admiral Evangelos Apostolakis, chief of the Hellenic General Staff.
“If the Turks land on a rocky islet, we will raze it to the ground. That is a red line that is espoused by the government,” Apostolakis declared. He suggested that a military confrontation with Turkey is a possibility, but said “along with the US and the European Union, we want to ensure that the Turks do not reach that point.”
It comes after Greece’s military said that a pair of Turkish F-16s made a flyover of the island of Kastelorizo in the eastern Aegean on Thursday, minutes after a helicopter carrying Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos traveled through the area en route to Athens.
Turkey, however, will not allow “any fait accompli in the Aegean and the
Mediterranean,” according to Gen. Hulusi Akar, chief of its General Staff. There is no way that Turkey will back down “from the rights of our country and our people,” he said.
Despite formally being NATO allies, Greece and Turkey share an uneasy history. The modern-day Turkish Republic was founded after a bloody war with Greece and Western powers back in 1923.
Hostility between Athens and Ankara persisted throughout several decades, reaching its peak during the Cyprus Crisis, which almost erupted into full-scale war after Turkish troops invaded the north of the island in 1974.
At times, both countries have tried to come to an agreement over the issue, but to no avail so far.Currently, Greece and Turkey have several disputes over the Aegean.
The sea is dotted with dozens of small islets, making delimitation of the maritime border especially challenging.
Several clashes between both countries’ warships have taken place over the last few years, along with numerous mid-air encounters of Turkish and Greek jets.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/greece-threatens-nato-ally-turkey-over-aegean-islets/

>Update: Tiger Forces to begin offensive against ISIS in east Deir Ezzor
On Friday, the elite Tiger Forces branch of the Syrian military was given orders to redeploy to eastern Syria, where they will post up along the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.
According to a military source in Damascus, the reason for the redeployment is due to the growing Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) that is posed by the upcoming Turkish Army offensive east of the Euphrates.
The source said that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who are fighting ISIS right now, will be forced to redeploy much of their troops to northern Syria as they attempt to deal with the looming Turkish Army threat.
The Tiger Forces are expected to clear a small Islamic State pocket that has remained near the border-city of Albukamal.
ISIS has launched several attacks on the Syrian Arab Army’s positions from this pocket near Albukamal; it has become a major issue due to the constant shelling from the terrorist group on the city.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/update-tiger-forces-to-begin-offensive-against-isis-in-east-deir-ezzor/

A draft resolution calling for the declaration of war with Russia was introduced to the Ukrainian Parliament on December 21.
The full title of the document is “Draft Resolution on the appeal of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine [Parliament] to the President of Ukraine regarding the declaration of war, the breakdown of diplomatic relations and the cessation of transport links with the Russian Federation”.
The document was introduced by a member of parliament Kupriy Nikolaevich.
It’s unclear when the Ukrainian Parliament is going to vote on the proposed declaration of war.
On December 20, Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov revealed that the Kiev government is to stage a new provocation against Russia by sending another naval group with so-called “international observers” through the the Kerch Strait.
On December 19, a resolution was introduced in the US Senate called for a international freedom of navigation military operation in the Kerch Strait and the Sea of Azov.
Meanwhile, the US and other NATO member states have increased their intelligence activity across the Russian borders. Washington is also withdrawing combat-ready troops from Syria and Afghanistan. Some sources say that these forces could be needed for the US in case of participation in some “new” military conflict.https://southfront.org/ukrainian-mps-introduce-legislation-declaring-war-with-russia/

With that in mind, A pontoon bridge like the one at DeZ-Khasham being deployed is not far fetched either.

Doc, Pingu, your thoughts on this?>Maidan Wardak governor General Muzaffar Yameen called on his forces to halt opposition to Taliban, he accused foreigners for the bloodshed & says Taliban are our own people. we don't have any problem with them. He said this while addressing students of SyedAbad university.https://twitter.com/Ahmdyarr/status/1074679009869512704
It's a repost, but I want your thoughts on this.
Personally, I don't think the Taliban will welcome him with open arms since he's basically a collaborator that sees the writing on the wall and wants to join the winning team.
Libya's been static too long for my liking. Some gains there will be nice!
I thought they were going to move in when the Turks started their offensive?
I guess if they attack the Kurds, it will be okay, but I doubt it will happen soon since I fear America will keep giving them air support (even though they are pulling ground troops)
Reminds me of this.
It's so bad, but you can't go through this without at least grinning
Thank you m'Lord.
All your map making effort is very much appreciated.
Thanks Lanka.>>193944>I thought they were going to move in when the Turks started their offensive?
Why wait? Especially since the Kurds are desperate enough for protection that they're willing to turn to Assad and drop demands for federal Syria, including conceding oilfields to Assad.>I guess if they attack the Kurds, it will be okay, but I doubt it will happen soon since I fear America will keep giving them air support (even though they are pulling ground troops)
Nah, it'd be horrific PR for Trump to airstrike Assad for fighting ISIS, especially since the US has said that they will stop airstrikes.
Besides, 5th Corps is being deployed there and that means it's not too farfetched to presume that Russians will be among the SAA advancing into SDF areas.
You had a 50/50 shot, and you guessed wrong. haha
Sorry, I think I was unclear. I mean their attack on Idlib, not the Kurds. I agree that Assad should try to make a deal with them, seeing as he holds the position of power, the second thing I said was just me reminiscing over the possibility that the Kurds refuse to negotiate, but yeah, I agree with you that a deal would be better.
Eh, I've been up for about 27 hours now.>Sorry, I think I was unclear. I mean their attack on Idlib, not the Kurds.
Bigger fish to fry. A small shithole full of Jihadis with not that many resources < Everything past the Euphrates river with Syria's biggest oilfields.> the second thing I said was just me reminiscing over the possibility that the Kurds refuse to negotiate
They'll get sandwiched, and even the Kurds know this. Hence, the desperate bids for diplomacy.>>193954

>Kurdish forces request long term French air support after American withdrawal.
Oh God, please no!>>194016
Your post gave me a heart attack, desu. Thought he was saying "yes" to them…
The whole war is one bad movie. Think of all the plot holes. America bombs Syria for using chemical weapons, even after the "victims" in the video came out and said it was fake. That makes no sense at all! Writer oversight maybe? Also, what ever happened to the tension between Russia and Turkey? They shoot down a Russian plane, they hate each other, then the writers seem to forget everything that happened and just make them friends out of nowhere? Strange.
Poor character development: It's nice that they have a gay character (Suheil) but his whole identity is based on being gay and raping rebel POWs. This is lazy writing. Not to mention that this "Trump" character is totally unrealistic in so many ways.
Poor plot arch: I hated the way that they killed off Zahreddine. Firstly, if it had to be done, it would have been better to do it just before the siege was broken (more dramatic). Secondly, when you only have 4 or so main characters, killing off one of them will negatively effect the story unless you introduce new ones which they haven't really done.
Also, we were building to a climax at Idlib but then it just stops - so what was the point on building that up???
Very bad writing!
When Does my self insert nazi oc show up?
I disagree with your take on beard Druze man, Zahreddine's death was almost a masterpiece. His death being just after the end of all those years besieged was if anything uplifting and hopeful, I would of changed it to be after the full capturing of the city however.
Imagine how shitty it would of felt to know that he never saw the people of the city free

Seems that their strategy is capping Helmand and Farah to cut off Nimruz province, then move in on Nimruz province and capping it as well, thus shortening the frontlines and controlling a solid corner of Afghanistan as a launching pad for attacks north and east.>doesn't seem like to he is trying to join, more like trying to cut a deal and the possibility of him getting his way appears to be low.>you are going to see alot of these for example>https://twitter.com/Zulmai_Afghan/status/1076124452230959105

>Turkish forces given ‘green light’ to launch Manbij offensive: report
BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 P.M.) – The Turkish military and their rebel allies have been given the “green light” to begin their offensive to capture the key town of Manbij in northern Aleppo, the Yeni Safak publication reported on Monday.
According to the Yeni Safak report, more than 8,000 Turkish soldiers and Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters were deployed to the Manbij front to capture the town from the “Kurdistan Workers Party” (PKK).
The PKK reference is for the Syrian Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and People’s Protection Units (YPG), who are considered terrorist groups by Turkey.
The Yeni Safak report claims that the primary purpose of this Manbij operation is to eliminate the “PKK’s supply line from the Assad regime.”
The YPG and SDF troops in northern Syria were embedded with the U.S. Coalition and do not have any military ties with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in Manbij.
In response to the buildup of Turkish forces in Manbij, the Syrian Arab Army has begun amassing troops to the south of the town in order to prevent any advance into their areas.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/turkish-forces-given-green-light-to-launch-manbij-offensive-report/
>Algeria blasts Turkey over alleged arms shipment to Libya
BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:15 P.M.) – An Algerian official told the Saudi-owned Al-Watan publication on Monday that the allege Turkish arms shipment to Libya has threatened the stability of the region.
According to Al-Watan, the unnamed Algerian official claimed that the alleged Turkish arms was “a real declaration of war against us,” as rockets and 48 million rounds of ammunition were recently discovered along the Algerian-Libyan border.
“The military and security forces are on highest alert to confront any attempt to undermine our security,” he added.
Libyan officials in Benghazi have also heavily criticized the alleged arms shipment, while the Turkish Foreign Ministry has denied any role in its delivery to the war-torn North African nation.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/algeria-blasts-turkey-over-alleged-arms-shipment-to-libya/
>Saudi Coalition troops retake 15 districts from Al-Qaeda in southern Yemen
BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 P.M.) – The Saudi Coalition and their Yemeni allies managed to retake several districts from the Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in the southern region of Yemen on Monday.
According to the military commander of the pro-government Yemeni Army, their troops and the Saudi Coalition captured 15 districts that were occupied by the Al-Qaeda forces in the Shabwah Governorate of southern Yemen.
The Yemeni Army said that their forces eliminated a large number of Al-Qaeda fighters during this cleansing operation.
Al-Qaeda has been active in the Shabwah Governorate for much of the war; this has prompted the pro-government forces in southern Yemen to take action against the terrorist group.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/saudi-coalition-troops-retake-15-districts-from-al-qaeda-in-southern-yemen/

>US Coalition bombs bridge being reconstructed by Syrian Army in Deir Ezzor
BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition carried out a new airstrike in the Euphrates River Valley region of Deir Ezzor, today, targeting an area near the front-lines of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
According to a military source in Damascus, the U.S. Coalition bombed the Halbiyah-Zalbiyah Bridge that links the territories controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces and Syrian Arab Army in western Deir Ezzor.
The source said that the Syrian Arab Army was recently reconstructing this bridge and was nearly finished until it was bombed by the U.S. Coalition.
The U.S. Coalition has not issued any statement about this bombing.
Al-Masdar’s source in Damascus said that the Syrian Arab Army believes the reason for the bombing was to prevent them from being able to cross the Euphrates and enter the SDF’s territory.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/breaking-us-coalition-bombs-bridge-being-reconstructed-by-syrian-army-in-deir-ezzor/

>Battle for northern Yemen intensifies as Saudi Coalition attempts to advance in key district
BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:15 P.M.) – The Saudi Coalition resumed their offensive in the strategic Nihm District of the Sana’a Governorate, today, targeting the several hilltops that are currently under the control of the Houthi forces.
Backed by heavy airstrikes, the Saudi Coalition and the pro-government Yemeni Army troops began their attack on Monday by storming the Houthi defenses at the eastern sector of the Nihm District.
The Houthi forces said they were able to repel the Saudi Coalition’s attack on the Nihm District, adding that they killed several enemy fighters in the process.
However, pro-government media channels contrasted the Houthi reports, stating that their troops managed to capture several points inside the Nihm District on Monday.
The Nihm District is imperative to both sides as it is the gateway to the provincial capital of the Sana’a Governorate.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/battle-for-northern-yemen-intensifies-as-saudi-coalition-attempts-to-advance-in-key-district/

On December 24th, leaked plans for possible provocations in Donbass by Ukraine were posted on the hacker website Cyber Berkut. After this, the website came under attack after the information was posted, however there is a mirror provided.
According to the Cyber Berkut report, over the last few days the hacker group received information from completely different sources on possible dates for Ukrainian (and thus US and NATO) provocations against the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), the Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) and Russia. The report provided an overview of alleged goals and objectives as well as the dates for possible provocations:
The direct leadership and the “curation” of the entire political and military life in Ukraine is exercised by its “Western partners” in the face of the US and the UK. A conglomerate of official staff, security and intelligence officers operate a sort of “operational headquarters.” It has four primary tasks:
Provision of direct assistance and overseeing the development of strategic plans for the defense of Ukraine from external threats (Russia more than anything);
Developing plans for land and naval offensive operations by the Ukrainian Navy and Armed Forces. The General Staff of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense is allegedly obliged to take these plans into account;
Controlling the process of re-equipping, re-arming and training of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Creating a “new” Ukrainian army that will counter Russia in the possible upcoming war;
Ensuring the activities and management of the Information and Psychological Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It is to be used in the possible escalation scenario;
The fourth point of the tasks is significant, since it is common for the US in recent years to begin conflicts with “information warfare” operations.
Hacker Group Reveals Scenarios Of Possible Ukrainian Provocations Against DPR, LPR And Russia
Finally, a list of possible provocations on the territory of Ukraine or along the border with the DPR/LPR and Russia, which could take place between December 24th and January 7th:
A “breakthrough” of Ukrainian Navy warships through the Kerch Strait into the Sea of Azov. Unlike the November 25th incident, this time it would supposedly be larger and heavily armed so that the warships manage to actually break through. The provocation will be larger, should include usage of weapons in the conflict and must necessarily end up with a significant number of casualties;
Organization of provocations along the contact line between Ukraine and DPR/LPR with a requirement of civilian casualties, as well as military personnel deaths for Ukraine. According to the information, the most likely scenario is an imitation of artillery shelling from the DPR, during which a large number of Ukrainian civilians and military personnel are struck. For the purpose, he Ukrainian side has already manufactured unguided rocket and artillery shells similar to DPR/LPR ones, which will be used in the provocation;
Similarly to the second scenario, this one would happen along the contact line and would again involve Ukrainian civilian and military casualties. The DPR/LPR will allegedly employ chemical weapons against the Ukrainian Armed Forces, killing a large number of civilians and military personnel. To implement the plan, the “operational headquarters” and the General Staff of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense collected fragments of shells from beyond the withdrawal lines, which will be treated with chemical warfare agents. After imitating the use of chemical weapons by DPR/LPR it will present evidence of Russian chemical weapon’s use in the form of fragments of shells with traces of toxic substances;
Finally, the Ukrainian special services will carry out several sabotage operations in the government-controlled territories and blame the special services of the DPR/LPR and Russia. According to the information, sabotage operations can happen on the territory of several enterprises which use chlorine, ammonia and other hazardous substances in their manufacturing process:
Severodonetsk Azot Association, Severodonetsk;
Konstantinovsky Chemical Plant, Konstantinovka;
Avdiivka Coke Plant, Avdiivka;
Dzerzhinsky phenol plant, urban-type settlement Novgorod;
Kharkov Chemical reagents plant, Kharkov;
Azovstal iron and steel works.
It is yet to be seen if any of these plans are true and will be implemented.https://southfront.org/hacker-group-reveals-scenarios-of-possible-ukrainian-provocations-against-dpr-lpr-and-russia/puts on tinfoil hat

polls show bibi winning again, perhaps with a smaller margin and coalition but he has no real threat. prosecutor also said they will delay indictment charges until the election is over, so all in all the whole thing is pretty retarded, bibi will be re-elected and then it's all up to the police decision.

Its connections to Al-Qaeda and ISIS in Syria, how it always airstrikes the Syrian Army but never the Rebels or ISIS, the fact that ISIS was present on Israeli border for 4 years without a peep from the IDF, the time ISIS attacked Israel and then later apologized to Israel, their extreme hate for Jesus Christ to the point of removing the bottom of the "+" sign because it looked too much like a cross, the fact that the Israeli flag isn't the Star of David (there was never a Star of David) and that if you look at it in a certain way it has six 6s, but the Star of Molech and that Israelis protested against the adoption of the current Israeli flag (they wanted a menorah instead of that star), the Oded Yinon plan and how the Kurds play very well into that plan, how ISIS played well into Israeli plans to balkanize the Middle East and provide a pretext for Israel to intervene with boots on the ground and march all the way up to the Euphrates river, that ISIS is convenient for Israeli plans to oppose Iran, how Hezbollah btfo'd Israel back in 2006 using hugging-the-enemy tactics, how Israel and Russia set up a hotline to prevent Il-20 incidents but Israel hardly ever uses said hotline, and most importantly - the dual-citizenship with Israel that almost every single member of Congress has along with other high-ranking members of US gov't, leading to divided loyalties (John Bolton - she hates this fucker and blames him for getting us into Iraq, Diane Feinstein to name just two).
But what really turned her against Israel was that she was redpilled on Assad ("He protects the Christians in Syria") from the beginning, and I pointed out to her that Israel wants Assad gone at all costs, even to the point of arming ISIS and Al-Qaeda in Syria - thus making Israel an Antichristian nation (Syria and Egypt has more Christians than Israel does).
She's still not a Jew-hater, but fuck it: redpilling her on Israel is huge on its own since she believed Israel was the good guy for about 50 years until I provided mountains of evidence to change her mind - this took about a year of weekly efforts.
It's a big enough win for me and she wants America to cut off support to Israel, gtfo of the world and retreat back to the 50 states.
I also redpilled her on Afghanistan, but it really wasn't that much trouble since she'd done her own research on the Taliban.
She wants the Taliban to take down the gov't for one reason only: Bacha Bazi was punishable by death under Taliban rule, but has made a huge comeback under Kabul gov't rule.
Now she's working on redpilling others and spreading what's really happening in the Middle East.
>Assad wins again
Have YOU redpilled people that you thought were unredpillable, /sg/?
Slow but steady Doc. I think they might actually make it
>>194505>I managed to redpill my mother
no offense but i cringed a lot reading that
gave me flashbacks of them 12 yo magapedes "btfoing le libtards by prasing kek"
She knows a lot of people m8 and can spread information like a venereal disease in a Turkish harem. And besides, what other wording can I use?>yes, this post is serious, I welcome wording other than "redpilled".
God bless you and your mother.>>194509
Never underestimate the power of mothers, they have reach beyond our imagination.>still had same thought, a shame the kids have ruined it for us>>194512>what other wording can I use?
I wish we had other words to use too. "Turn someone to the right side" perhaps, but I don't know.
dunno, having normies trying to go on a redpill crusade by themselves is dangerous in the sense that they don't have all the infos to be able to defend said POV and if they end up arguing with someone who actually has the material to debate, they might end up in quite the trouble
that and the fact that you're marking yourself and your family as "these weird people supporting this group unlike the average normie"
also supporting publicly assad is easy, but going for taliban is sketchy as fuck (especially in the country where half the population legit think that pashto farmers literally flew those planes)
I myself don't deny that they are far too intertwined with AQ elements that will try to use afghanistan as a launching pad for attacks outside of afghanistan and considering the minarchist nature of taliban government it'll be hard to get rid of them even if they want to (which i doubt they will since they'l try to repay the favor of sending foreign fighter in afghanistan)
so ultimately you can see that there isn't a clear good and bad side in afghanistan in the sense that even /ourguys/ have some problems so taking a position of support is something to be left to the people with all the tools for argumentation
>>194516>dunno, having normies trying to go on a redpill crusade by themselves is dangerous in the sense that they don't have all the infos to be able to defend said POV and if they end up arguing with someone who actually has the material to debate, they might end up in quite the trouble
Yeah, it's up to them to do their own research, not me.>that and the fact that you're marking yourself and your family as "these weird people supporting this group unlike the average normie"
Eh, they've always been weird.>also supporting publicly assad is easy, but going for taliban is sketchy as fuck (especially in the country where half the population legit think that pashto farmers literally flew those planes)
Again, they'd have to do their own research and provide sources. But people are easier to convince than one'd think, especially if the person doing the convincing is a trusted and knowledgable person that isn't known to go off the deep end.>I myself don't deny that they are far too intertwined with AQ elements that will try to use afghanistan as a launching pad for attacks outside of afghanistan and considering the minarchist nature of taliban government it'll be hard to get rid of them even if they want to (which i doubt they will since they'l try to repay the favor of sending foreign fighter in afghanistan)>so ultimately you can see that there isn't a clear good and bad side in afghanistan in the sense that even /ourguys/ have some problems so taking a position of support is something to be left to the people with all the tools for argumentation
Yeah, my mother just wants the US to get out of Afghanistan and let the Afghanis sort their shit alone. She's not so much pro-Taliban now as she is anti-gov't (the Bacha Bazi).
whoops, my bad. meant my right ear**. 2 weeks ago I had a cold and sharp pain in my right ear and since then can barely hear anything in my right ear. bought some eardrops and it eased the pain but i still can't really hear in that ear.
am i going deaf or what?
problem is i can't see an ENT until next weer or so.>>194501
Oh I know, it's the principal of the thing. people are upset that have to do 3 years in the army with shit pay while they don't do shit and gov still pays them to do nothing and read torah all day. it's useless to actually conscript them, but they should be judged as all others. If your'e secular and refuse to enlist you go to jail, that's the law. but they have different rules. they don't go to prison. so a lot of people are upset about it and what equal judgment.
but it won't happen, the haredi lobby is too strong and it's been tried numerous times before and always fails.
>>194524> had a cold and sharp pain in my right ear
were you doing anything that could have provoked it?
how many instance of sharp pain did you have?
how long did it last?> since then can barely hear anything in my right ear.
but you still can hear yes or no?
also do you still have pain?
do you have pain when cleaning your ear with Q tips?
any bleeding happened?
does the interior of your ear feels hot or burning?
was there any secretion of pus?
>problem is i can't see an ENT until next weer or so.>lives in the country with most doc per capita>can't go to one
>but they have different rules
so haredi managed to be diaspora in a jewish country, worse even, they manage to be the jewish diaspora of a jewish majority country
wow> the haredi lobby is too strong
how the fuck do they do it? i assume most of them only do religious affiliated jobs and have revenues from the state so what leverage could these gibsmedats leeches hold?
threatening to close all kosher grocery shops?
>>194526>were you doing anything that could have provoked it?
mm, don't think so.
>how many instance of sharp pain did you have?
it was constant pain in my right ear and right side of the face.
>how long did it last?
until i put the eardrops.
>but you still can hear yes or no?
very very weakly, not properly.
>also do you still have pain?
no, paing is gone, i think eardrops help with this.
>do you have pain when cleaning your ear with Q tips?>does the interior of your ear feels hot or burning?
mmm not exactly, it just feels clogged? sometimes also hearing rustling/pulses/air popping. but there's no wax or anything when i try to dig in with q-tips.
>any bleeding happened?
thanks for the help.
>lives in the country with most doc per capita>can't go to one>yep
Wait, is it really? all I know is that the medical services here are constantly overloaded and hospitals are in full occupancy all the time. always hearing stories of doctors working 20 hour shifts and people sleeping in the hospital corridors.
>so haredi managed to be diaspora in a jewish country, worse even, they manage to be the jewish diaspora of a jewish majority country
Yep. most rules don't apply to them. no army service, less taxes, welfare leeches, own courts etc.
>how the fuck do they do it?
they have a large enough population. currently it's 12%, or around a million people. by 2030 the projection is 16% and growing rapidly. an they all live in their own neighborhoods/ghettos where the police is afraid to even go into. ambulances often gets pelted with eggs and rocks when they enter too. truly a no go zone inside the country.
the shekels they have from rich hasidic jews in Europe/usa with endless donations.
>threatening to close all kosher grocery shops?
most shops are kosher by default, even the non haredi ones. the only ones who aren't are the Russian shops. that's where you can get bacon and all the other good stuff.
try pulling on your ear lobe and on the small flap that close it as if you're trying to make the orifice become wider and tell me if you have pain
also do you feel like something's moving inside your ear when you tilt your head from a downward position (looking at your feet) to an upward position (looking at the sky)
do you feel pressure when you rest your head on the ear that is clogged
> all I know is that the medical services here are constantly overloaded and hospitals are in full occupancy all the time. always hearing stories of doctors working 20 hour shifts and people sleeping in the hospital corridors.
that's the same shit for every hospitals in the world, but i was referring to doctors operating outside of hospitals (because that's where the shekels are)
>most rules don't apply to them. no army service, less taxes, welfare leeches, own courts etc.>they all live in their own neighborhoods/ghettos where the police is afraid to even go into. ambulances often gets pelted with eggs and rocks when they enter too. truly a no go zone inside the country.
holy shit that sounds exactly like muslim immigrants in europe
>>194532>try pulling on your ear lobe and on the small flap that close it as if you're trying to make the orifice become wider and tell me if you have pain
hmmm, nope, no pain. but still clogged.
>do you feel like something's moving inside your ear when you tilt your head from a downward position (looking at your feet) to an upward position
hard to say, i have those weird vibrations inside it, like someone's knocking on it lightly. hard to explain, like spasms inside the ear.
>do you feel pressure when you rest your head on the ear that is clogged
nope, it's just feels mute. when it started i put pressure on it and unclogged for a few seconds and then blocked again.
> but i was referring to doctors operating outside of hospitals (because that's where the shekels are)
oh right. i have insurance so im waiting for the local doc office which costs me almost nothing. but it's always busy. for family doctor you can see pretty quickly but for expert there's always long queue. i can go to a private doctor and then have to pay up some shekels. maybe if it won't get better till next week ill have to do it.
>holy shit that sounds exactly like muslim immigrants in europe
Yah, the resemblance is uncanny. they have their own tiny pseudo-state inside the country with their own people and rules.
do you feel pain when you open/clos your mouth or chew something
did you try to yawn in order to unclog your ear? if yes did it have any effect (pain or improvement of hearing)
when you had your flu was your throat infected? (as in did you have symptoms of pharyngitis?)
when you had the flu was your nose runny?
If it is air-pressure holding your nose, closing mouth and swallowing can help (a trick often used by divers).
highly doubt it's that
i'm 95% sure it's an infection of the middle ear due to pathogens from his respiratory infection
I just thought of the "yawn trick", and remembered from diving course that equalizing pressure is easier by swallowing than moving jaw.
>>194547>do you feel pain when you open/clos your mouth or chew something
yeah I did in the beginning, but after i put the eardrops(Otidin) the pain stopped.
>did you try to yawn in order to unclog your ear?
yep, didn't help.
>when you had your flu was your throat infected? (
I think not, i always get a cold when the winter starts. >it started getting cold and rainy about the same time. >when you had the flu was your nose runny?
aye, just the standard runny nose and slight fever. but it's gone, only my ear is fucked now.>>194550>>194551
I tried the close all ears(except the clogged one)/nose/mouth and blow out air and it didn't help.
>i'm 95% sure it's an infection of the middle ear due to pathogens from his respiratory infection
antibiotics/solvable? man I really like music, going mono would be très terrible.
you most likely have acute otitis media
antibiotics should do the trick but you still need to see a doc so he can visually check with an otoscope your tympanic membrane to give the final diagnostic
also if there is pus coming out of your ear or if you lose hearing then you must go to emergency service in hospital because it could be a rupture of tympanic membrane
two last questions
is it the first time it happen to you?
how many days precisely do you have this condition?
>>194565>is it the first time it happen to you?
>how many days precisely do you have this condition?
i think exactly 2 weeks ago it started.
>antibiotics should do the trick but you still need to see a doc so he can visually check with an otoscope your tympanic membrane to give the final diagnostic
I see. thank you for the assistance greatest ally.
>>194569>i think exactly 2 weeks ago it started.
odd tho since most of the time it goes away in 1 week or so
btw are you still ill from flu?
and before i forget
your eardrops are only to treat the pain and have no use against the infection in itself
i'd recommend you to buy some Amoxicillin from pharmacy (check if you don't have allergies toward Amoxicillin or any other penicillin) i think it should be 750mg to 1 g every 12 hours for 10 days
ask the pharmacist
also avoid smoking or vaping if you do, it's bad for the infection
>>194571>btw are you still ill from flu?
most symptoms are gone. a bit chilly but no fever. don't get along with winters. such is life being a desertnibba.
>'d recommend you to buy some Amoxicillin from pharmacy
hmm, seems I can't buy it without prescription. >>194572>also avoid smoking or vaping if you do, it's bad for the infection>maghrevape.jpg
nope, never smoked or vaped. can't even if I wanted to, had spontaneous pneumothorax twice when i was younger, docs told me to never smoke (or scuba dive).
>>194573>seems I can't buy it without prescription
odd, you can here
try fluoroquinolones then but beware, they're more powerful and thus have higher risk of causing diarrhea
also>be jew>have no doc in your distant/close family>not even any pharmacist
yep> had spontaneous pneumothorax twice when i was younger
was it due to trauma, disease or is it something that runs in the family?
your thoughts on recent bombings?
is bibi trying something new to make up for US withdrawal?
is there talks of more intervention in the medias?
>>194576>odd, you can here>try fluoroquinolones
yep, prescription as well. most medicine here is regulated, can't get any of the good stuff without RX.
>>have no doc in your distant/close family
I have distant 2nd cousin who is but our family never stayed in touch and i never really talked to him.
>>not even any pharmacist
heh, 90% of the pharmacists here are Arab, the rest are Russians. in my local clinic there's 3, Saeed, Amjad, and Natalya. barely and jews for some reason take it.
>was it due to trauma, disease or is it something that runs in the family?
Nope, just happened out of the blue. shit sucked. that hookah they put in your lungs is pretty funny tho.>>194577>your thoughts on recent bombings?
so far seems business as usual. talking about high target officials but I don't believe it.
>is bibi trying something new to make up for US withdrawal?
possible, wouldn't surprise me if he's trying to be sneaky. could also be a good start to his Election campaign.
>is there talks of more intervention in the medias?
all sorts of rumors, i don't buy anything yet. too early to know before the Americans actually withdraw, then all hell can break loose.
>>194578>yep, prescription as well. most medicine here is regulated, can't get any of the good stuff without RX.
try bribing a pharmacist, can legit work sometimes
otherwise ask what can you get without prescription in term of antibiotics>that hookah they put in your lungs
top kek, first time i hear someone call it like this>talking about high target officials but I don't believe it.
yeah, 20th time that qaseim is totally legit dead> could also be a good start to his Election campaign.
big doubt that a war of even an escalation causing iranian to actually fire them missiles would be good for his popularity
>>194582>try bribing a pharmacist, can legit work sometimes
ehhh, i rather wait, it it's serious he'll put me on something. maybe if i knew Arabic i could get away with it.
>yeah, 20th time that qaseim is totally legit dead
guy is unkillable, they should know by now.
>big doubt that a war of even an escalation causing iranian to actually fire them missiles would be good for his popularity
no, but memestrikes that make everyone go "bibi stronk, look how he confronts iran/syria/hizb" is. on rotter(popular israeli forum) every time a memestrike takes place everyone jizzes as if we conquered Damascus, it's ridiculous.
>"bibi stronk, look how he confronts iran/syria/hizb"
do people legit believe that 6 ammo boxes and 3 ak destroyed every air sortie is making iran finished?
is everyone playing dumb to avoid confronting reality or is the MSM really putting on as much as possible the propaganda kool aid?
>>194588>do people legit believe that 6 ammo boxes and 3 ak destroyed every air sortie is making iran finished?
They are actually that retarded. every time they go "haha where's the S-300 now/iran btfo bla bla". they can't think long term or have a strategic view. 200 strikes later and what exactly did it stop? needle in a haystack, but they can't accept that its useless because bibi isn't doing anything else.
>is everyone playing dumb to avoid confronting reality or is the MSM really putting on as much as possible the propaganda kool aid?
generally israeli msm doesn't like bibi, because hes crooked as shit, but when it comes to iran/hizb/syria everyone stands behind the gov/army automatically. it's taboo to question the effectivity of their actions or you'll be branded as unpatriotic/traitor etc.
>>194589> or you'll be branded as unpatriotic/traitor etc
how bad is it, considering naturei karta type of antizionists and haredis in general are allowed to live even though they don't seem to pull their weight
>>194594>, considering naturei karta type of antizionists and haredis in general are allowed to live even though they don't seem to pull their weight
heh, they're a different level of insanity. neturi karta are against the state itself. they don't pay taxes and i have no idea why they're still getting protection from the gov.
Haredi aren't against the army, theyr'e against being in it. they think prayer is the answer to everything and doing something else is beyond gods will.
but if your'e secular and don't support the army you will be branded as a extremist leftist sjw or an Islamist supporter. no room for nuisance, blind support or nothing else.
so only religious nutjobs get a freepass and the rest is on a kool aid diet
wew lad, and here i thought life in israel was better than it's neighbors (as in europe tier quality of life)
Nice work mate!
Here it is when you keep the same aspect ratio for each frame.
>>194596>so only religious nutjobs get a freepass and the rest is on a kool aid diet
yep, sounds about right.
>and here i thought life in israel was better than it's neighbors (as in europe tier quality of life)
eh, marginally better than *some* neighbors , but definitely not Europe tier (aside from a few rich neighborhoods in tel aviv).
and even there, I assure you it's worse than any mid tier café in France that it's trying to imitate.
thanks for the insights
btw any funny story of dealing with haredi?
also which ones are worse palestinians or haredi?
>>194612>btw any funny story of dealing with haredi?
I live in a pretty secular area, not many haredis around. sometimes you see em on the train, I had a nice chat with one haredi guy that turned out to be an engineer, it was quite bizarre since most of them don't go to the academia and pursue higher education.
>also which ones are worse palestinians or haredi?
both wants us gone and end this entity and build something else in its place in their own worse way, so i'd say they're equally bad. same difference really.
How's the pally diaspora in France? as bad as the maghrebis?
>>194524>>194530>>194546>>194557>>194569>>194573>>194578>pressure and deafness in an ear during a flu
I just had the flu with a very runny nose and I had essentially the same problem aside from the pain. I was worried it wouldn't drain on its own but it's gone away now. However, if you're having an earache you absolutely should get that looked at.
>>194627>How's the pally diaspora in France?
haven't met a single one
quite frankly, haven't met any arab not from maghreb except for a few lebanese
i think most palestinian diaspora tend to be in USA
>Arab league set to readmit Syria eight years after expulsion >https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/dec/26/arab-league-set-to-readmit-syria-eight-years-after-expulsion
Sorry, I can;t be bothered archiving. Only a few of you will read it anyway.
look at the foreground
you see the yellow flag?
doubt russians tag along hezbollah patrols
It's the ypg flag.
i thought ypg stopped larping as russians
since when do they intermingle?
No clue, they did in Afrin atleast.

interesting. thought they're everywhere.
people mainly flock to countries to which they have some history
paki in uk, lebs and syrian and maghrebi to france etc
btw do haredi and palestinians get along or at least the religious pally since they tend to share a lot of common values
in Jerusalem yes, for the most part, since they've been living together for quite a while. in the settlements not so much as you can imagine.
i really struggle to understand how the average israeli (assuming the majority is secuar or at least pro zionist) can put up so long with this 5th column without trying to lynch them or give them the apartheid treatment
there isn't much that can be done, realistically speaking. the ship has sailed. can't expel, can't can't annex, can't really do anything. so stuck in this status quo until something will blow up eventually.
I think they tried in the WB. probably have some sleeper cells for the next war.
>>194741>apartheid ethnostate vs leftist aligned multicultural, multi ethnic movement supported by lgbtq+ friendly state>trying to keep good optics in the eyes leftist/liberal western allies
good luck explaining to the world powers that they're evil if they refuse to support israel
wait a sec
i think there's a quid pro quo here
i was referring to haredi when i was talking about 5th column and hezbollah recruiting them (since they share the same hatred for israel as a state)
>>194744>>trying to keep good optics in the eyes leftist/liberal western allies
Well, not just optics. mainly U.S support which without the whole Zionist project collapses. don't forget we're just a vassal state despite the ebin memes on /pol/ claiming it's the other way around.>>194745
Oh, lel. Eh, maybe neturi karta, they're crazy enough. regular haredi are only interested in torah and shekels. they cbb about anything else.
so to reiterate my question
how come there haven't been violent clashes between seculars and haredim or attempts to revoke their citizenship or put them in apartheid?
this is literally germany in the 30's with haredim being the jews and seculars being the germans yet you people don't seem to snap
>>194751>how come there haven't been violent clashes between seculars and haredim
Mmm, it's been brewing up, some protests, some anti-haredi political parties and such. but Jews have bad history and trauma with internal infighting.
so small chance for a violent clash or civil war. at least for now. most people don't realize the threat yet. maybe in 30 years when they reach 30-40% of the population and start taking over government positions and impose their religious laws upon everyone. by then Arabs will also more than multiply and it's gonna be a complete shitfest.
hopefully I'm retired in valletta by then.
