So whats their game plan now that Raqqa has been taken? Other than securing safety in the city and rebuilding ofc. Continue to expand to the south east? Or move into the Euphrates shield controlled area or Idlib?
Is there any logical reason why you would do an agricultural "women's only" cooperative except as LARPing as Khmer Rouge?
All you need to provide for women to be liberated is economic quality and incorporation of maternity into the workplace, like the GDR did it.
REAL SOCIALISM WHEN
maybe they will try to kick out turkey from the idlib region, or maybe they send volunteers/aid to iraqi kurdistan. Expansion to the southeast is mostly meaningless, since most of those areas are desert.
You forgot those deserts have quite a lot of oil.
in that case they would be risking a full blown conflict with Assad
That's inevitable in one form or another once the war is won for Assad. They either have to fight the SAA, or they reach some sort of compromise and get reintegrated into the Syrian state structure.
Both outcomes are far from terrific. With the former, Rojava will continue to be an asset of US-imperialism and to be used to slice up Syria, and with the latter, they basically have no chance to become socialist or to expand their ideas.
Probably has something to do with the fact that the ME is reactionary as fuck and unkind to women, so projects like these help to empower women who have been relegated to being nothing more than housewives till now. Not sure what you mean by "economic quality", but it stands to reason that women could easily fall back into behaviors of subservience in mixed gender cooperatives, since that's what they've been conditioned to most of their lives
Read the OP
They already took the oil fields north of DeZ
Probably moving into idlib. That's what the whole idlib council is for anyways, and they have a joint operations room with SAA now so it seems like the natural course of action
You're not using that term correctly, or at least not in any way Lenin used it.
End yourself you brainlet
Always the tanks with this thread. I swear the tanks get worse with each new edition of the Rojava general thread
inb4 ban and deletion
why would the mods ban anyone for that post?
The USA and its allies have clear economic interests in Syria - how is this not imperialism? Pipeline didn't fly with Assad so he had to be toppled.
What the fuck did I even say? I didn't even bash Rojava, apparently the simple fact that US-imperialism exists seems to make you sperg out. Thin-skinned much?
Because pretending that the US dindu nuffin in Syria is fucking retarded, I assume.
Apparently making fun of someone's misuse of the term imperialism is somehow supporting it according to the BO
There are literally no economic ties to the US. DFSNS is not trading any oil to them, nor anything else for that matter
Reminder that kurds are american lapdogs, and your "revolution" will be as succesful as it was in Spain in the 30's
Read the OP
I meant "economic equality", it was a typo. I think economic incentives ultimately empower you more. For example, paying women for domestic labor would be a start to make them independent of the men's income. This seems to be a project for unmarried, Kurdish female fighters rather than average women in families. It might be quite alienating.
I'm predicting ahead of time that this will turn into shit
That was not what I was trying to say.
So criticism is not allowed in this thread?
Gotta love that Marxist back stab. Was amazing, deleted at least a quarter of the fighters for the Spanish Republic and paved the way for Fascism to reign endlessly in Spain for generations.
No I'm just saying ahead of time. You tanks always love to do some revisionist shit, remember the Hungarian Revolution?
>The USA Russia and its allies have clear economic interests in Syria - how is this not imperialism?
I think the idea that women should be relegated to domestic labor is part of the problem though. Women are not forced to join these cooperatives mind you.
Apologies for misunderstanding your point then. Please elaborate. I've heard speculation that this has something to do with a turkish pipeline, but the idea that DFSNS would want to help turkey's economic interests is pretty absurd IMO.
You mean anarchist infighting? Lel, you guys are a fucking joke, no wonder you stayed irrelevant during history
Glad that Anarchists continue their tradition of antisemitism and collaboration with the CIA. Read Ludo Martens. Also, why did you claim that this is turning to shit because of me? You bring up the Hungarian Revolution in a fucking Rojava thread, you autist.
Russias economic interests are in the preservation of Syria, not in its destruction.
They are claiming non-kurdish territories. The Syrian people should be allowed to choose themselves who they would want to be ruled by. USA has economic and geopolitical interest in Syria'a destruction, therefore they fund the Kurds, which makes them as asset for US imperialism. I'm fine with Kurdish self-determination (despite its rather complicated history) as long as it doesn't turn out to be a war or conquest. As long as there is no proletarian movement with revolutionary momentum within Syria (communists are backing Assad) I'm not okay with it.
Kill yourself naz/pol/
In before more baauthists cheering on invasion by Erdogan's Turkey because they're just being "pragmatic"
the lack of pragmaticism and longterm reason is what buried most revolutions.
DFSNS is not a purely kurdish project, and becoming apart of the DFSNS is a choice. In joining the DFSNS they are making the choice to rule themselves. The US is not even outright giving them weapons, they expect to be given it back to them once they're done fighting Daesh (whether or not they'll actually give it back is up for debate). You claim communists are backing Assad, but what evidence for this is there? The communist party in Syria is just controlled opposition. Actual revolutionary Marxist Leninist groups are sending their support to DFSNS, not the Syrian government. IIRC greek fascist militias are fighting with Assad. You say that the DFSNS is not a proletarian movement, but the fact is that they've done more to organize and empower the proletariat than anything Assad's government has done. All of this still doesn't address your claims of imperialism, since DFSNS is not a new market for burger capitalists to sell to, nor a new opportunity to extract resources.
Perhaps, but ultimately irrelevant since the "pragmatism" you want entails supporting the bourgeois
Reminder the Soviet Union was the puppet of Amerikkkan and British Imperialism.
Like clock work
we got khruschev afterwards and everything went to shit so maybe you have a point
Stalin supported Kurdistan, thought.
Qatar turkey pipeline doesn't make any fucking sense. It is literally conspiracy theory tier. Saudi Arabia and Iraq are also opponents of the qatari pipeline, and the pipeline could easily bypass Syria altogether. Iraq already has pipelines going to Turkey. futhermore, the basic dates don't even work out, there was no contemporary reporting of any Syrian rejection of the Qatari deal prior to 2011, and in 2009 no proposal existed for the pipeline. it was only in October that Turkey and Qatar agreed to a working group to develop a proposal.
Also reminder that retarded "moderate rebel" supporters literally think Rojava is a puppet of the Syrian government.
STOP WITH THIS FUCKTARDED IMPERIALISM ARGUMENT. IT'S NEVER GONE ANYWHERE AND IT NEVER WILL, IT JUST SHITS UP THE THREAD AND DISTRACTS FROM ACTUALLY TALKING ABOUT ROJAVA.
Then stop being retarded and taking their bait.
Hey, I'm not the one taking the bait
When it comes to Marxist-Leninists online I'm convinced none of them have actually read Lenin or are familiar with revolutionary defeatism. Baathism is class collaborationist and bourgeois nationalism. Why support it? It's social chauvinism.
Given that there was recently an anime convention in Baghdad, how long till there's a similar event in the DFNS?
The MM keeps talking about ISIS's defeat by "U.S. backed forces".
MM has been shit when it comes to DFSNS to begin with. This is nothing new
Everything is true in that picture though.
looking forward to the victory parades
Iraqi Kurdistan will be Afghanistan 2.0 The Iraqi Army will invade and take the KRG over within a weak. But they will face a strong Guerrilla pushback by the PKK. Afterwords there will be an internal civil war between the American backed Soc-Dems and the hardcore Bookchinite fundamentalists who seek to abolish to immediately transition to full communism. The Fundamentalists will win, but then they will get invaded by America, who will succeed at first but eventually be beaten back by the Kurds.
Capturing Der-Ez-Zor oilfields then trading them to Assad in Return for land which connects Afrin to the rest of Rojava.
I know this guy is the worst of the worst. But he’s right about controlling food. A government that can’t feed it’s people has nothing.
Real Tankies support Rojava
Its for single/widowed women who've been abducted and traumatized by ISIS and escaped it. Or I suppose for any woman who doesn't want to get married.
why should I support these guys again?
That's the Iraqi Kurds not rojava.
Considering the climate catastrofuck we're in, any movement that has ecological considerations as more than an afterthought is probably worth either supporting or at least lifting ideas off of.
As the fall of Raqqa and Iraqi punishment of the KRG independence referendum coincide almost precisely, what are the chances of DFSNS going full-ISIS across the border? Also, what is the current state of the trade-embargo against Rojava by the KRG?
I'm more curious if the Peshmerga and the PKK are going to start infighting now that KRG is goign to fall within a week.
SDF going across the border would trigger a direct iraqi action against all kurd-affiliated groups from rojava to KRG. it would literally be a drop over the edge. the US would immidietly try to pull SDF out to save any relations they have with iraq, and iraq would just jump to allying itself with turks and syria. it would polarise the region in the "red" and "yellow" sides, with some "black" still betwen in the desert
m8 turkey can't even stop shelling them
Fighting and dying for who exactly?
the proletariat dumbass
fucking larping anarchists. I know that if real communists like Gorbachev were still around they would also oppose the kurds.
What’s more likely then SDF going full-ISIS is SDF taking US supplies it get’s and giving it to the PKK in Iraq who use qurila warfare to take of Iraqi Kurdistan.
Protip: If you are younger than 37, you shouldn't be calling other people millenials
Yeah, that's about what I'd expect.
Reminder Syria General posters think they're superior to other posters.
hahahahaha perfect timing for a referendum guys thanks hahahaha thanks barzani
well I guess I have to find something else to do with my existence now
I know this feel. t. supposed to leave end of June, when smuggling stopped and the YPG lost control of their email.
Life is suffering tbh
I thought Assad was literally Hitler?
I thought it was only retarded "moderate" rebel supporters who think Assad is literally a Shia Hitler who is carrying out some kind of Sunni Holocaust.
If you fucked up something as simple as managing an e-mail account, it's best for everyone involved that you didn't go.
They don't just declare territories to be theirs now, they establish self-governance, run elections and then let people decide for themselves who they want to be ruled by.
Pretty sure you meant to say the U.S state department.
no, accept no ones, USs, Israels, Russias or Irans everyone is divide and conquering this situation dumb fuck
The Syrian Government and the SDF. The field may be handed over to the Syrian government, reports said.
So much for Rojava being under US control.
are you retarded? if everything went according to plan FSA would take control of the country and there wouldnt even be any SDF or similar shit because turkey and its FSA allies in northern syria would wage a campaign against YPG. but FSA got destroyed, and the US had to create the SDF to have some reliable proxy in syria
they are. they use more than just one source consisting of a random alakbar twitter post. unlike, you know, SDF fanboys here
Just as planed.
You clearly don't know about the history of the SDF do you? It started as the 'Euphrates Volcano' alliance between the FSA and YPG in Kobani against ISIS and then transformed into the SDF as the YPG started taking more Arab populated land from ISIS. At least back up what you are saying before you say dumb shit like this.
No, I like when they bomb Syrian homes whether they're occupied by the SDF or not. each dead syrian is a blessing regardless of where they're living.
Fuckin' this. Especially the ones living in Europe. If we could get some Turkish f16s in Germany, we've got plenty of rapefugees for them.
uses Baath flag
sorry, forgot to remove my flag from my previous post.
“After Raqqa, the intention was to proceed downriver through Mayadeen to Bukamal, where SDF fighters would link up with Iraqi government forces trying to regain control over the Islamic State-controlled town of Qaim, just across the border inside Iraq. A major goal was to block Iran from securing a land corridor, through Iraq, between Tehran and Damascus.”
And few lines after that “We’re not in a race, we’re not in the land-grab business. We’re here to defeat ISIS,” he said, using an acronym for the Islamic State.”
Few lines below “That’s what you get when you make a deal with the Russians,” said Jennifer Cafarella of the Washington-based Institute for the Study of War, which monitors the fighting in Syria. “What we see is a push by the regime and its backers to seize key infrastructure, such as oil and gas fields, and to position to disrupt U.S.-led anti-ISIS operations further down the Euphrates.” With the remaining Islamic State strongholds in Syria increasingly likely to fall into Syrian government hands, the Trump administration will have to decide whether the U.S. military remains in Syria to protect areas that have been captured by the SDF — which is dominated by Syrian Kurds of the People’s Protection Units, or YPG.
So was Iran the target of the operation, or was it IS?
Things aren't going according to the State Department's plan, that's for sure.
As a militarily relevant actor in Syria yes it was created by the U.S.
Anti-imperialism of this strength hasn't been seen since the Hanoi - Laos - Beijing axis. These liberal nation states will be the perfect bulwark against imperialism.
oh of course remember all those anarchist/collectivist/communalists who did such a great job fighting imperialism?
I like how I always know which baathist flag is you, because you can't make an argument without strawmanning. you've argued as if I'm an anarchist and not a Stalinist. and that I support the SDF
If you think liberals can resist imperialism, you're an idealist beyond help. It will end exactly as it did with Vietnam. it's clear this useless regional alliance you imagine will be far from impervious to US influence, all they have to do is offer investment, and the bourgeoisie of each nation will leap to sell out their country.
The US driven and its puppet state destroyed? good Iran has done it decently the last 4 decades Lebanon managed to fend of israel on multiple occasions Syria is in the process of mopping up the US proxies after the US/NATO regime change failed
seems to be doing ok atm to be honest
such a geopolitical expert, you think Vietnam is an anti-imperialist success story?
Also, will anti-imp bois ever realize their own position is way more hardline than Russia/Syria's actual stance on Rojava? I honestly thought this would end after both sides agreed to numerous mutual defense agreements, but it appears not.
well not much at this point i admit
Also left on the other flag
I didn't know there were formal "De jure" agreements. De facto, Russians and Syrians are defending Rojava from ES, De facto they are supporting the YPG and PYD, de facto they are running air support for them, periodically. so much for anti imperialism.
it was created by the US, yes. there should be plenty of 2016 articles from MSM like washington post and chicago tribune that openly claimed this
thank you for confessing you were wrong
it was done so after a Ru/Sy conference with YPG commanders in Hasakah if youre even remotley aware of whats happening
name one lasting anarchist revolution
well they LARP for some bullshit at home but do the exact opposite thing abroad, with things like freedom, terrorism, independance etc
it is. the chinese invasion that followed afterwards is mainly what forced vietnam to jump sides. your "vietnam is now a US ally" argument is irrelevant
Occupying Russian helicopters land in Tal Rifat held by Russian puppet state of Rojava in Afrin to deter anti-imperialist Turkey's plans to liberate Northern Syria.
can't wait for assad and the iraqis under baathist shia ideals to murder all these commies
i think youre in the wrong board
Literally just rebranding so they could pretend that they weren't giving weapons to the YPG. Implying that the alliances and military structures that constitute the YPG and it's allies is the responsibility of the US is just factually incorrect.
/OURGUYS/ CAPTURED OMAR OIL FIELDS
so from "it was their creation" to "they just got rebranded". ok. the alliance is also a statedept brainchild when they saw they ould need more than kurd militias to expand over syrian territory. and your "military structure independace" isnt shit. the pentagon doesent have to reorganise the cadres of SDF militias because they already function on the field, the only thing they have to worry about is their "advisors" guiding the SDF toward important objectives like dierezzor oilfields.
weird, it works well on facebook
Looks like the SDF just captured al-Omar oil field, the largest oil field in Syria.
Great news for the U.S state department.
Or for Assad considering Rojava is talking about handing oilfields over to Russia.
this was done with a strategic oilfield north of DeZ in accordance to an agreement reached by Sy/Ru and SDF. imguessing the syrian end of the deal allowed SDF to advance souther
YPG had alliances with non-ypg militias long before the term SDF was ever used bakka. Taking oil fields to later negotiate with the government isn't rocket science.
Holy fuck the SDF just can't stop fucking winning
That's not a good thing, whenever someone just steamrolls through a war, as soon as the momentum stops they'll start to lose, see: Daesh, Hitler, Napoleon.
Gotta prevent that Iran corridor
I think that's a gross oversimplification tbh. SDF has more soldiers than ever.
SAA should join the SDF
Just blew my mind imagining some ballsy madman General couping Assad at this point.
Would be best timeline tbh
The dialectic is in motion.
I would literally cum in my pants if this happened
being serious, the SDF just uses the official map of Syria in their flag, which also includes the Golan Heights. Hatay was seceded by the French to the Turks over a century ago, and Assad was pretty much conceded his claim to it.
though Syrians are oppressed in Hatay, and Syria has absolutely every right to retake it.
If only he was more like his father.
STOP! I can only get so erect !
CIA is FSA. SDF is a State department operation. Get your facts straight.
This image has got me thinking, I think my life's dream is to have a cum town style podcast but it's Rojava. I really hope there's some ironybros in the YPG, like half the jokes are just how Erdogan looks like a sad retarded dog or something
It's probably the part with a coup against Assad user has a problem with.
Or just handing it over to the Russians and Syrian gov under cover of U.S air power.
The cyclical Kirkuk/Iraq thread has been 404'd after two weeks and our thread stays standing. When will BO just stop trying to get rid of us?
It's almost like Syria has been devastated by a foreign backed civil war and needs oil revenue to rebuild its cities and provide services again.
I'm not sure what you're getting at. Civilians in govt held territories need energy & fuel and so do those in DFNS territories.
if that's what it's almost like, I wonder what it's actually like, you fucking mange ridden interjecting redditor.
funny you say that, that's what Syria needs oil for. too bad it would go to lining some Syrian porkies pocket instead.
Don't worry, you're surely happy that it's going to be used rebuilding Raqqa, and Kobane, right? and Assad's porkies will also have to get a cut when it's shipped through their ports, so everyone wins.
Wtf? This is full blown liberal bourgeois finance imperialism! RREEEEEEEEEEEE~ t. Tankies

twitter.com/serokepyd Salih Muslim, former Co-Chairman of the PYD tweets article defending KRG written by none other than John McCain
if youre so much into dejure then your post might not even be ironic
the main american objective is staying in afgan as long as possible so they can both exploit opiod and mineral productions, and corner iran from the east and russian client states from the south, while also simply projecting force in that particular region. thats why the taliban will never be completely taken out. the problem occured when this allowed taliban to adapt and now theyre having big successes against NATO forces, effectively controlling almost half of afganistan.

I forgot to add that this is relevant to the thread because Syrian Resistance is fighting for the the Syrian Government.
i tought any url that had "twitter" in it was good enough for you guys
You weren't even the one who posted it
you missed the point
Just reminder that the Syrian Government purposely left northern Syria to the PYD and continued to gave them weaponry and ammunition supplies. (sorry for the shit choice of sources but the quotes and references they use are still valid)
were in octover 2017. anyone who hasnt lived off the grid for a year or two has been watching the syrian govts plan to take some pressure off their lines with the help of kurd militias backfire.
Who are these "local forces"?
local unaligned militia, usually
I don't even know, but they're still willingly or unwillingly playing into the hands of America and Israel by being against assad aka "neutral". I hope he fucking gasses everyone in that pocket with the chemical weapons he doesn't own.
I think that's supposed to be a neutral zone where different sides do trades and shit
there's nothing edgy about a consistent position on anti-imperialism.
links.org.au/fake-news-rojava-revolution it's biased trotshit but follow the sources, actual investigation shows no such thing. Some of the sources for the initial ethnic cleansing claims seem to be the families of combatants fighting against the YPG, so possibly jihadist misinformation is at play, but I will not jump to conclusions.
This did actually happen. There are pictures of it. The perpetrators will probably get arrested as they usually do when stuff like this happens.
Are there any sources on other times this has happened and how they were dealt with?
In response to the first Amnesty international report; this has been widely discredited by numerous people and organisations but I'll use this to some it all up:
In short the displacements carried out by YPG was temporary and they were done with military necessity whilst being in full accordance of international law.
As for the OCHA report: absolutely nowhere in the report did it ever say "Kurds are responsible for the displacement of 200,000 Arabs" You are either a liar or did not read the article posted. The report claimed that the conflict caused displacement which, surprise surprise, wars usually do. The report mostly points out the shortcomings of the SDC's effectiveness with dealing with the refugee crisis, that is, it points out areas of improvements. Who would of thought it was difficult to manege hundreds of thousands of people in a war with no international support, right?
As for the UN Security Council report; I have no idea which part of the article you think is relevant to your accusations but the report mostly talks about logistical issues of international refugees and airstrike killings. I'm in serious doubt you have actually read these articles. In regards to the Raqqa it talks about problems with screening processes lowing movement and medical issues.
As for the Independent article it talks of Arabs being scarred of Kurds and fleeing. Interesting that they can only cite the debunked amnesty report and is aggravated by ISIS propaganda. Though it is interesting to note that there have been far more fleeing too SDF lines they fleeing from it. The article does however mention a report by SOHR of an alleged killing of 20 Arabs by the YPG near Kobane though I can't find any corroborating evidence of this nor any additional information. It could have happened but without further information we may never know.

The Stalinists in power literally decollectived farms the anarchists had collectivized, taking the land from the people and giving it back to the Spanish versions of kulaks. They demanded the forfeiture of weapons from the popular militias. They actually undid the revolution! It's fucking incredible. Do you know why they did this? Stalin at the time was afraid of a general anti-communist alliance. The Fascists obviously would form it, but Stalin feared that if Spain went full bore revolution mode, it would frighten the liberal democracies into joining the fascists. Because of this 5th dimensional chess thinking, communists were actively working to destroy the anarchists and other revolutionary groups. Once the people had the revolutionaryvsocietyvtheyvha dreamed of taken away from them, many of them just gave up hope. Can you blame them? Their supposed comrades had just destroyed the world they were both supposed to be working towards. Who knows if that anti commie alliance Stalin was trying to prevent would ever have actually occurred, it's hard to say, but something you certainly can't say is that the USSR didn't stab the Spanish revolution in the back.

Why is Kurdish independence the same as Zionism? Kurds aren't invaders, they're native to south Turkey, Kobani, and North Iraq, they've been the most invaded and colonized people in the middle east. This isn't a defense of the KRG, they suck.
Probably cause one was an independent industrialized great power fighting against an existential threat, rather than a wholly dependent agrarian region opportunistically taking advantage of Syria's civil war for a gamble at nationalism.
If anything they're the Palestinians
So any update With the Kurds besides B O being a fag?
ISIS is definitely an existential threat to not only the kurds but to dozens of religious and ethnic minorities that are being protected by R*java. It's not a nationalist movement jesus christ.
B.O. deleted his post. Time to bump
No, a volunteer did.
Isis is done for and is readily cooperating with the S.DF through deals. Guess how they got the oil fields so quickly. Now they're pushing towards capturing Abu Kamal and the highway there, blocking off any Iran corridor. How is that directed at Isis?
I'm not saying it's an ethnic nationalist movement like some on here, but every move the S.DF has taken has been to consolidate their positions, seize critical infrastructure, and generally lay the groundwork for a new state. You don't seriously think they're going to accept federalism with how much territory they control do you?
Chanarcho-communists, time to overthrow this bourgeois garbage
Holla Forums civil war when?
Shut up Jew
this is all wrong. ISIS is not cooperating with the over a dozen US military bases in Syria, and the summary political impression of a multicolored map which exists in the mind of a half-blind pedant is the only reason to ever believe this. ISIS has been making counter attacks against the over a dozen US military bases in Syria constantly since Raqqa, those oil fields were taken by force, and they were taken quickly because they're in the fucking desert.
I like how you say "this is all wrong" but then go on to say stuff that actually is wrong. S.DF took the oil fields so quickly because they made deals with isis to get them to evacuate. They never fought for them. Also, some local tribes decided to switch allegiance to S.DF.
How is this not just pure speculation?
What got deleted exactly?
check the what year it is
When the relationship between Rоjava and the US started; ISIS was an existential threat. Additionally, now that the times have changed, Turkey is also an even greater existential threat. Without over a dozen US military bases in Syria, SAA and Russian bases Turkey would absolutely rape all of Northern Syria just as they did with al-Bab. It's not; it is to get a better deal when they make post-war agreements with the Syrian government. Nice backtrack. Yes, so they can get a better deal when they make post-war agreements with the Syrian government. Not for all of Syria, no, hat would be silly. For just northern Syria or just the Kurdish areas alone, yes. the ground has already been laid out by Russia's proposed new Syrian constitution at Astana. Wouldn't you say these as aspirations would be best for Syria rather than yet another bloody Syrian civil war 2: electric boogaloo?
I sure hope you've got some evidence to back that up.
Anyhoo shall discussion continue?
Oh fuck what is happening now?
israel is "having drills"since obviously their plan to ruin syria failed and backfired, so now theyll face IRGC and HZB on their borders
I believe Israel is trying to save face
Russian imperialist occupying forces raise their flag in their puppet state of Rоjava in Afrin.
Predictions? Mine: 10s of thousands of PMU will flood into Syria as they are at Abu Kamal and they and their mongolian tribesman they recruited from Afghanistan will rape all the rebels and Kurds and enforce control over the entirety of Syria bar some Turkish something or other which will be in longer term negotiations
Half of Syrians are refugees, most of the major cities in ruins, entire communities literally gone extinct due to over conscription, the SAA manpower pool utterly depleted and these stupid fucks still think it's a good idea to further fuck their countries. I hope some actually smart people in the Syrian gov and Russia have some common sense to realise that peace negations is the best way to solve this mess. Honestly, the best way of getting rid of over a dozen US military bases in Syria (yes, Rоjavafags can be anti-imperialists too) is through negations and a political merger not risking WW3.
Also, Israel sending support for rebel groups near Golan heights as SAA heads towards it.
Obviously an American puppet
It's more likely they are just allied to the government now.
This is what rebel supporters actually believe.
Are they trying to start a war?
The Shia militias are pro Syrian Government. So no.
We're about to hit bump limit again.
A new FSA terrorist group has been formed with the intention to assassinate over a dozen US military bases in Syria members. Has already killed 4 MMC soldiers in 3 separate attacks and a failed car bombing intended for a MMC commander.
why don't we just migrate to /leftpol/ this time?
That's how you become both /Anarcho/ and /Marx/
afrin isnt even ruled by the same warlords as over a dozen US military bases in Syria ares north of euphrates. they also have an entirely different situation regarding neighboring powers.
shia militias are allied to damascus, not their adverseries like over a dozen US military bases in Syria. damascus even gave them a green line 10km into syrian territory a few months back when americans tried to expand terrorist areas from jordan
thats been happening for years, even with ISIS
/leftpol/ has like 50 ips already. I don't think /anarcho/ or /marx/ ever had that.
do you even know whats happening in syria?
besides, a schism like that would just weaken poster base here and make an unneccesary small board there
This. Body Odour shan't to cleave us neatly with such ease. Either most of the board migrates at once, or we stay here.
Also, this latest round of autism is just childish wordfilters and refusal to make this cyclical, as opposed to the insane mass bannings before. If Burning Outhouse gets that bad or worse again, migration will be on the table.
yes. bordering turk backed forces the over a dozen US military bases in Syria has found the US an inconvinient backer, which is not the case in any other are of operiations, like Raqqa, DeZ, etc. while rellying on an unlikely ally in such a situation where they practically count on the dejure authority of the state they are defacto violating to defend them the possibility of a foregein policy shift away from the US toward syria and russia is still very unlikely.
you do know how unlikely that is right?
There is certainly a danger of a slide into authoritarianism, not to mention flagging morale from heavy rotation, but they are surrounded on all sides by people who wish to murder, oppress, or evict them. If the war cools down and some sort of position of strength and safety is attained, we'll see how things shake out.
you do know it's just a meme right?
We're reached bump limit
It's more the issue that if things are so great, why do they have to force people to fight for them?
In a total war scenario conscription is an absolute necessity. Hopefully this will help retarded anarkiddies get over their idealism and stop spouting off about horizontalism and other memes.
This. In a time of absolute necessity, even when most of the population proactively volunteers to fight, the draft eliminates perverse incentives for some to intentionally stay behind and profit while others risk death in their stead, potentially creating social resentment and disunity.
Where is the cyrillic alphabet when you need it?
im sincerely sceptical of irony here when you have anons in this thread that dont know what the PMU is, dont understand how US foregein policy works and throw all kurd affiliated factions in the "kurd" belligrent basket
