what's a war board without a conflict?

Middle East/Africa 2 for 1 special Strelok 11/15/2020 (Sun) 03:52:15 No.9172
Thread dedicated to conflicts involving Middle Eastern and African country's. We haven't had a middle east thread for months now so feel free to post some interesting developments that we may have missed during the threads absence. Just make sure that if you are posting old events have the date of the event listed as to not cause confusion. https://archive.is/pQiPv >Military Situation In Syria On November 13, 2020 >November 13, artillery of Turkish-backed forces shelled SDF positons north of Tal Tamar >November 13, clashes between SAA and Turkish-backed forces were erupted near Tadef >November 13, artillery Turkish-backed forces shelled SDF positions north of Minnagh airbase >November 13, Russian warplanes pounded militant targets near the village of Al-Barah >November 13, Russian forces struck areas near Idlib central prison with two Iskandar missiles, pro-militant sources speculated (the usage of Iskander missiles remains unconfirmed). https://archive.is/Xq8rk >Russian Missile, Air Strikes Hit Western Outskirts Of HTS-Held Idlib City >On November 13 afternoon, a missile struck the western outskirts of the northwestern Syrian city of Idlib, which is occupied by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) https://archive.is/tOV8s >75 Syrian Soldiers, ISIS Terrorists Killed In Central Syrian Clashes In Last Two Weeks >"48 regime soldiers and allied militiamen were killed, while 27 ISIS members were killed,” the SOHR said in the report, “the death toll is expected to rise as some injured are in serious condition, amid reports of further fatalities" >Syrian government forces and their allies are carrying out combing operations in the outskirts of the Homs desert on a regular basis. However, they are yet to address the terrorist group’s well-established presence within the region.

And now the Gulf States are angling for a rapprochement with Assad and Syria: https://web.archive.org/web/20210601150930/https://foreignpolicy.com/2021/06/01/assad-is-friends-with-the-arab-world-again/ Turns out political tenacity is its own currency. The Middle East has barely any security as it is, between the chaos in Iraq, Afghanistan, and now in Lebanon. They aren't looking for more glowie sponsored jihadi revolutionaries that bring out endless chaos. They just want a man that can hold the world together.
>>17314 ... Well, it'll be a drop in the bucket compared to the 1,000,000 pajeets, niggers, spics, and other shitskins that are admitted to the US each year. Remember during Vietnam how the American public threw a shitfit about them doing this same thing with gooks? There won't be a peep this time.
Hopefully they bring their bacha bazi boys with them and don't try to procure them onsite
>>17406 During Vietnam/Korea they brought in like 120k while the US population was only 200 million. Compare that to the 17k they plan to bring in with the current heavily black America and that's a drop in the bucket.
>>17412 You know it's going to be way, way more than that. >"This is going to SIV eligible applicants — even if they are not in the pipeline," Shah told Newsweek. "It is far broader than the original 18K, and will include Afghans all stages of the application process and even those eligible for an application."

>President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday said Turkey was planning talks with the Taliban over the hardline Islamist group's refusal to let Ankara run Kabul airport after US troops withdraw from Afghanistan https://web.archive.org/web/20210719144905/https://twitter.com/AFP/status/1417088076052975624
>>17405 >They aren't looking for more glowie sponsored jihadi revolutionaries that bring out endless chaos. They just want a man that can hold the world together. Interestingly-well put Strelok. The Bible has a vaguely similar description of events surrounding the Antichrist. I'm not suggesting this man Assad actually is him, but pointing out that you've hit on a fundamental prophesy regarding coming events in the world.
>>17406 >There won't be a peep this time. Actually there is/will be. But the globalist kikes will instruct their spinmasters to brand us all as le Ebil Nahdzees! Whites! to the NPCs.
>>17423 Sounds like an excuse for the Turks to flood the country with their roach terrorists. No doubt the USA is sanctioning its retreat on the basis of said roaches continuing the hybrid warfare shit that is happening in Syria.

>>17168 Taliban peace proposal: Taliban says no peace in Afghanistan unless President Ghani is removed: report >The Taliban says there will not be peace in Afghanistan until President Ashraf Ghani is removed and there is a new negotiated government in Kabul, the Associated Press reported Friday.  >Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen said the insurgents would end their fighting when a negotiated government that agrees with all sides of the conflict is established in Kabul, and Ghani's government is removed.  >“I want to make it clear that we do not believe in the monopoly of power because any governments who (sought) to monopolize power in Afghanistan in the past, were not successful governments,” Shaheen told The Associated Press. “So we do not want to repeat that same formula.” >Shaheen dismissed Ghani's right to govern, calling him a warmonger and accusing him of using his speech on the Islamic holy day Eid-al-Adha to assure an offense against the Taliban. Shaheen also brought up allegations of widespread fraud regarding Ghani's win. Ghani has said that he will remain in office until new elections determine the next government, which his critics, including the Taliban, say he is only trying to remain in power.  >Last week, the Executive Officer of the country Abdullah Abdullah led a high-level group of representatives to talk with Taliban leaders, according to the AP. While Shaheen said those talks were good at first, the government’s repeated demands for a ceasefire without the removal of Ghani were similar to a Taliban surrender.  >“They don’t want reconciliation, but they want surrendering,” Shaheen said. >Before the Taliban can agree to a ceasefire, there must be a new government “acceptable to us and to other Afghans,” he said. Only then will there be no war, according to Shaheen.  >Shaheen said that the Taliban's capture of districts was done through negotiation, not fighting. He said that some Taliban commanders ignored the leadership's orders against repressive and drastic behavior. >“Those districts which have fallen to us and the military forces who have joined us ... were through mediation of the people, through talks,” he told the publication. “They [did not fall] through fighting ... it would have been very hard for us to take 194 districts in just eight weeks.” >“You know, no one no one wants a civil war, including me,” he added https://web.archive.org/web/20210723140945/https://thehill.com/policy/international/middle-east-north-africa/564499-taliban-says-no-peace-in-afghanistan-unless Biden assures Afghan President Ghani of continued U.S. support -White House >U.S. President Joe Biden told Afghan President Ashraf Ghani in a telephone call on Friday that the United States will continue to support Afghanistan, including with development and humanitarian aid, the White House said in a statement. https://web.archive.org/web/20210724002818/https://www.reuters.com/world/asia-pacific/biden-assures-afghan-president-ghani-continued-us-support-white-house-2021-07-23/
>>17501 >development and humanitarian aid There is no problem some Democracy, Demolition equipment and airsoft can't fix t. every western think tank. Ghani is playing with fire by not having fleeing the country and setting up a multi-ethnic liberal democratic progressive government in exile on western European soil handed over as Crusade reparations, Taliban are already assassinating Afghan chairforce pilots in droves so there might not even be a plane left to crash with no survivors if he takes too long that is if they don't manage to bribe his security detail for a goat op.
>>17501 the talibs feel more like a puppet than an actual body they re vocabulary consists nothing of "god" and theyre assets are only guns that s not even shown in an expo or something how masterful of a fashion icon
>>17498 It looks crazy at a glance, but after quickly combing through the wikipedia page the situation is quite understandable: >anglos do their thing and create an administrative unit that completely ignores ethnic and religious differences >later they leave and tell the locals that they are an independent country now >ethnic tensions lead to the secession of an area >various outside players show up to pursue their own goals, ranging from selling weapons for some cash money to building influence in the region by making new friends >this inevitably leads to more outsiders showing up to counter the goals of the other ones >and some of them also switch which side they support based on internal and external events A good example is how the USSR just wanted to sell MIGs to the Nigerian government without having any greater plans other than making some money, but that was enough for communist China to start supporting the secessionists, because their relationship with the USSR was already soured at that point. Or in the case of Israel, they just sold weapons to the central government until their parliament decided that they feel sorry for the secessionists. The real fun part were the mercenaries: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nigerian_Civil_War#Foreign_mercenaries >Outmatched by Nigeria's superior military power, Biafra hired foreign mercenaries in desperation.[186] Mercenaries with prior experience fighting in the Congo Crisis were eagerly drawn to Biafra. German mercenary Rolf Steiner was placed in charge of the 4th Commando Brigade of the Biafran Armed Forces and commanded 3,000 men. Welsh mercenary Taffy Williams, one of Steiner's subordinates, was in command of one hundred Biafran fighters. Steiner's other subordinates were a mixture of adventurers consisting of the Italian Giorgio Norbiato; the Rhodesian explosive expert Johnny Erasmus; the Scotsman Alexander "Alec" Gay; the Irishman Louis "Paddy" Malrooney; the Corsican Armand Iaranelli who had able to enlist in the Foreign Legion by pretending to be Italian; and a Jamaican bartender turned mercenary who called himself "Johnny Korea".[187] Polish-Swiss pilot Jan Zumbach formed and commanded a ragtag air force for Biafra. Canadian pilot Lynn Garrison, Swedish pilot Carl Gustaf von Rosen, and Rhodesian pilot Jack Malloch served as leaders of Biafran air operations, attacking Nigerian forces and also supplying weapons and food aid. Portuguese pilots also served in the Biafran Air Force, transporting weapons from Portugal to Biafra. Steiner established a brown water navy by converting some Chris-Craft Boats into gun boats, which turned out to be successful in launching surprise raids for weapons and supplies.
>>17505 And they were able to pay for all that because Biafra also consisted of the oil rich regions of Nigeria, right?
>>17501 Ghani explicitly is the one who refused a ceasefire and launched a "kill all Taliban" campaign which is why the Taliban are going for his head. He did it to himself. >>17502 I'm waiting to see if we get a reverse-Ghadaffi or if the Glowies do an op to extract him with that in mind or something similar. >>17504 They are the closest thing to what AnCaps would cause a "decentralized government." They have leaders and an inner theological ring of clerics in high command, but their movement is largely cultural and represents a mixture of the voice of rural Afghan men and the lessons of what survivors they have from the Bin Laden days or Soviet days that came before the Mujahideen. >they re vocabulary consists nothing of "god" Because they saw the success of ISIS which was the first non-theologically-focused state in the region, and restructured the Taliban to similarly attract young men. That's why the Taliban and ISIS fight each other. They figured out the trick is to have the theological state internally via officers and the laws that govern the organization, and externally show an acting stable "secular" government to attract men to join them. One of the major hurdles they ran into under US occupation was figuring out how to train soldiers. Before the internal change it took closer to six months to two years to train someone. After the swap to remove theological lessons from a soldier's curriculum and instead follow an American WWI education standard with Islamic studies instead of Bible studies for children, they found that they could train soldiers in about 3 months instead. >theyre assets are only guns That tends to happen when you've been invaded multiple times by every superpower and surrounding country since 1950. The Taliban are Democracy, and damn are they ramming it hard up the US-influenced Afghanistan's ass.
>>17520 >The Taliban are Democracy Friend you seem to be casting that as if it were a good thing, kek. Quite apart from your obvious Freudian faggotry bent, describing something organic arising naturally from a people could hardly be best-described using that word. As Hitler and so many others have spelled out, as D*mocracy almost never represents the will of the people, but is instead a clear sham intended to deceive the masses into believing it's so. And in CY+/-100y, it's obviously got a strong connotation of Marxism run by globalist kikes. If you want to attempt propping up these illiterate goat fuckers that's your prerogative I suppose. But I'd recommend you not get too overenthusiastic about bro. It kinda blows your cover.

>>17524 Taliban aren't sending European civilians to another world so they're alright in my book, though you are somewhat right in that "Democracy" interpreted as the gay (((representative))) kind with fat pedo kike "experts" voting themselves into positions of fat retirement packages with a globohomo media extravaganza for when the voter cattle gets to vote for a figurehead "leader" every few years might not be apt to describe what the Taliban are bringing about in Afghanistan, perhaps >Democracy in a spiritual Swiss sense with Afghan characteristics would be a more apt description? Not that the term ever meant much since gommunist countries started calling themselves Democratic Republics.
>>17515 I have no idea, but Biafra had a population of 13.5 million. If they could tax the average nigger there for a grand of total of $1 worth of local monopoly money, that's still a budget of $162 million a year, and that should be enough to maintain a third world army led by the real-life A-team.
What's happeninges in Tunisia???
>>17545 >high unemployment (like 35+%) >food shortages cause subsidized arab economy >large debt to GDP ratio >massive corruption >Mostly "secular" country It's a wonder the current leader survived so long. Thus lies the curse of the salted earth of carthage.
>>17548 The Romans did pretty well running the place for a few centuries.
>>17505 I find it so fascinating that alignments always mean fuck all when profits or political posturing is on the line. I imagine that Russia and China will probably stab each other in the back if need be.
>>17582 russians are always pretty honest and open about their intentions. It's always the others who want to fuck around and find out. btw, fuck you chingchongs, your AK's suck shit-filled ass.
>>17582 China and Russia have been enemies since the 1960s, they just both lost the ideological background that would make them try to export gommunism, have enough internal problems to deal with, and both of them consider the USA to be their true nemesis. Add in that they are practically minded (at least to the pure insanity that is current Western mindset), and you can see that the time for the great struggle between the Bear and the Dragon is yet to come. Also, they actually had some proper border clashes in the 70s and 80s, Russians even kept their Maxim guns in service along fortifications on the Chinese border until the fall of the USSR. And that can explain why those Maxims were still around in armouries until the 2010s.
hey guys I have an idea how about once the taliban retake the whole of afghanistan, we invade again, smash everything and drive them underground again, but instead of then starting another pointless 20 year hearts and minds occupation, we just fuck off again and wait for them to come back again, then rinse and repeat until one side gives up would be pretty based no?
>>17611 If we're going to do that then let's forget having a conventional war and let's all just develop mechas so we can play Robot Jox with them instead.
>>17236 >This is why America is refusing to give up the embassy and airport in Kabuul I don't think the Taliban will give them a choice in that matter. They want Americans and American assets 100% out not 99% out.
>>17595 Having learnt of how the Soviets were absolutely terrified of the possibility of a nuclear strike by the US, or the tankie narrative about Stalin wanting a neutral but intact Germany, I'm inclined to agree. >>17597 I've heard some Aut Historian say that Siberia is wide open for Chink settlement and most of the people living on the East coast of Russia are Chinese. How true is that?

>>17611 What the fuck does the US even see in Afghanistan, they have solved their oil crisis and Texas will become the Solar State anyhow. Would be best to let the Chinese fight against the righteous forces of the one true religion.
>>17641 Same reason the DA is trying to throw the book at every protestor present in DC during the storming. Afghanistan dared to show America's incompetence in a public manner, so they must be steamrolled in traditional American fashion no matter the costs. As America does every time their pride is hurt, despite it just accelerating the Streisand effect.
>>17641 Drug money. Afghanistan was the CIA's primary poppy production field until local elements went rogue and decided that mind altering drugs were bad.
>>17649 Don't they have synthetic opioids these days?
>>17650 >synthetic While they may be cheaper (not always) or easier to produce, it is kind of hard to use them for a slush fund- after all, US law tracking precursors and opiods that are produced are quite strict domestically.
>>17645 >America dared to show America's incompetence in a public manner, so they must be steamrolled in traditional American fashion no matter the costs.
>>17655 America(((*)))'s
>>17645 >Country formed by rebelling against a centralized government punishes people rebelling against its own centralized government >All the people who were around DC have the same guilt by association to the guys who brought zip ties and stole federal property The absolute state of Weimerica, I find it so ironic that their own version of Uncle Joe is now running it
>>17655 It's quite hilarious to watch. >>17659 At one point the judge finally stepped in and gave the prosecutors a list of seven "offenses" that they must be pushing charges for before bringing in a case about the Capitol, because the prosecutors were making shit up just to get protestors on the lawn into court. I hope such incidents become more common so people understand the government doesn't give a fuck about you or anyone else except their own, they only give a fuck about making sure you shut the fuck up if you expose something that ruins their infallible image they project or reveals their corrupt spending to the average voter.

>(Possible) evidence that Pakistan has deployed its own nationals to help the Taliban seize control in Afghanistan >Lists of people who went to fight Afghan army and were killed in the last few months. All are Pakistani nationals and there is no Afghan refugee. Yes Mr. @ImranKhanPTI, Pakistan is not a sanctuary, Pakistan is waging this war by itself against Afghanistan https://web.archive.org/web/20210802021617/https://twitter.com/carlottagall/status/1421352006200041481 This might explain why the Taliban have suddenly started being "professional" recently and avoiding car bombings, like the VC being replaced with the NVA.
