IS post image of spoils of war after battle with Taliban
Moderate Al Qaeda post spoils of war from battle with Syrian Government in Latakia
how much longer until they run out soviet era weapons?
>>42018084never and even if they do there’s no shortage of West-supplied weapons in these countries
>>42018082>"Moderate Al Qaeda"Why am I seeing this absurd term so often these days?
>>42018084Considering that soviet gear was produced by the milions and that ww1 and ww2 weapons are still found on battlefields all over the globe, not soon.
>>42018084Well what else would they use? The only way they'll get that is if a government provides it to them. In the past, governments have been content with providing rusty surplus (with the occasional new tech like stingers back in the day).
>>42018090Because US funded terrorists have a bad PR feel to it.
>>42018090im being facetious, there is actual non-state sponsored al qaeda in syria , but these guys are state sponsored al qaeda that disavowed the central leadership, so “moderate al qaeda” à la «moderate rebel”
>>42018090Because the US funded “moderates” who ended up joining ISIS under the previous administration.
>>42018077>AR Mags>No AR in sightTali logistics at their finest.
>>42018114to be fair tho these are the moderates that DIDNT join IS in 2014. Everybody outside of idlib did
>>42018123the ar dudes probably dropped them as they went
>>42018077>US starts arming Taliban against IS
>>42018077No goats could be salvaged
>>42018437they already basically have since last year, the whole Doha negotiations is based around getting the Taliban to fight IS. US have given taliban free reign in certain areas in return for them attacking IS
>>42018164This this is true. However, it does not change the fact the Obama administrations approach to the Middle East was dumb and arrogant. We have little idea about who is who, contacts looking for gibs, and gullible cia agents thinking people in that region of the world play by the same rules as Latin America. So, now we have a bunch of American equipment and in the hands of people who want nothing less but to dick us over in any possible way, while trying to pull a Libya. It makes zero sense in hindsight and made zero sense then as well. >>42018164
>>42018476It makes sense given one thing, after Obama assassinated Osama he became extremely arrogant, in the environment of the “arab spring” Obama legitimately convinced himself that Al Qaeda was truly defeated and that the days of radical islam were over. When he armed the syrian rebels willy nilly he legitimately thought that the Islamic State of Iraq was defeated. And i quote:>It’s harder to end a war than begin one. Indeed, everything that American troops have done in Iraq -– all the fighting and all the dying, the bleeding and the building, and the training and the partnering -– all of it has led to this moment of success. Now, Iraq is not a perfect place. It has many challenges ahead. But we’re leaving behind a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq, with a representative government that was elected by its people. We’re building a new partnership between our nations. And we are ending a war not with a final battle, but with a final march toward home.https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/the-press-office/2011/12/14/remarks-president-and-first-lady-end-war-iraqAnd i quote,2 years later:>JV teamObama and co werent some machievellian geniuses conspring with israel to create IS. They were just delusional retards
>>42018123>>42018188the guys with the ARs probably got away
Breaking FPS et al pics from the Moderate Al Qaeda latakia offensive
>>42018084>how much longer until they run out soviet era weapons?The US supplies them all with Romanian clones of old soviet weapons apparently. The US buys masses of weapons via former soviet eastern european states via shell corps according to a detailed report I read recently.
>>42018926>the wasrs and Romy surplus runs out in 2027>jihadist groups backed by the CIA get supplied with RAS47Nice
>>42018476>Obama administrations approach to the Middle East was dumb and arrogantthose wars didn't happen under obama, and the people elected him to get out of those wars
>>42018095>AQ fighting TBLove it when a plan comes together.
>>42019018canonical aq is actually a literal hostage of the taliban(the pakistani ISI wing), but strictly speaking IS is indeed the true spiritual successor of OBL’s AQ
>>42018824Haha holy shit, i didnt thonk about that aspect
>>42018077>anti personnel rpg 7 warheadsneat
you'd never would have thonk that you'll see the day when terrorists are wearing GoPros on their head. crazy shit.
>>42018946The point, you missed it.
>>42018824>the intel on those sim cards
>>42021708if theyd only be an hero
>>42021708with the prevalence of drones and go pros, theres going to be a ton of crazy shit vids coming in the near future. hell, there are already.
>>42024363>irl Red Alert: Generals
>>42018084Islamic extremists will use soviet weapons on mars
>>42018505more likely that obama just used the assassination of bin laden as the lynchpin of the PR campaign he used to justify getting out of iraq before we were done with our work there. i will never agree with the decision to pull out with the timing he did, but it would be disingenuous to call it retarded. obama, for all his warts, was not a retard. he was a smart guy who had an ideology which led him to making that extremely poor decision. smart people can have really fucking stupid beliefs. if you're smart enough, you start believing your own bullshit because you have the ability to rationalize it so impeccably. it's a character flaw more than one of intellect.

>>42019064so were using the pupped of the old enemy to attack the new one? sounds fun.
>>42018926>Purple Shovel. Look into lads. CIA is good pals with daesh.
>>42018939Brilliant idea my dude. An AK that explodes at 5,000 rounds. They will never see it coming.
>>42018910Milikor 40mm MGL? >>42018897>>42018892Does mounting a GoPro on the head is necessity with Arabs?
