i would team up with stalin to beat hitler... not sure how much rope i'll give putin to bomb raqqa

As far as bad guys go, Nazis and ISIS really seem neck and neck regarding the degree of brutality they're willing to impart on their subjects.
If ISIS had 1940s German capital behind their efforts this wouldn't be a question, but they still have that 'JV' look to some folks.  Because their capabilities are indeed relatively limited makes them less of a threat, but not really any less evil.

I'm willing to turn a blind eye to it if it stays there, and a blind eye toward Putin helping Assad put a coffin lid on it too.

Well when do we reach the iron curtain moment? because if the WOT goes on forever it would follow its in their interest to keep presenting himself as the bulwark against the infidels.

and manipulating ethnics groups with-in historically anachronistic boundaries is falling off a log for this lot and russias influence in the ME is becoming wider and more manipulative

and this is important..Russia's goals in region do not require stability ie they can achieve wider geopolitical effects by keeping the region unstable which is quite a different prospect from US efforts.

a large group of US opinion have given them a pass for standing up as our defenders against evil...even when faced with the possibility they are actively destabilising your own country (perception not with standing on that i get it people can hink that is bs)

whats to stop them splitting opposition against them by keeping the war in the ME grinding on forever.... this is the whole thing people don't see about how they operate.

both acting in Syria to fight terrorism and acting to keep the war going defends other russian activities and weakens/limits the US options to manoeuvre.

the Russians fight terrorism but it never ends because it inoculates them..i'm seeing somesort of pattern here

what is the purpose of the war for Russian interests?


 
... but we derail the thread

I've been saying this for a while.
These kind of attacks are so easy, and basically unstoppable when the perp is willing (or seeking) to die.

We'd save a lot more lives focusing on removing our military from the ME and diverting some of the savings toward automating transport.

I have to agree quite a lot with that

I think impeaching him will be real hard...

Flynn and manafort are lawyering up thou.

clear as mud.. it would be funny if it wasn't a horrific civil war used as a proxy war by a multi-polar fakakta

he didn't do bad for a single attacker.  cars and lorries are turning out as pretty effective. not like you can ban them from busy areas

The Green Party is probably planning legislation for exactly that purpose.

LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

probably their best angle.. can get on board the kipper ticket.

these attacks are pretty simple yet there frequency is pretty dam low...usually perpetrated by some low self esteem male mentalist looking for a place in history...

yet it just highlights how few of these metally ill people there really are.

its dam rare that out of millions of Muslims in the uk you can only find/inspire/egg on a handful of committed idiots.

the battle hardened syrian civil war fighter paris attack thing is more pro-terrorist.

the returning jihadi phenomena is an issue...same thing happened in ME after the russo-Afghanistan war when the diaspora of fighters were left with nothing to do but look for new fights or shoot each other.  you get Chechnya and all that.... some fucking hardcore bastards in that Chechen bunch.. but even the hardcore are pretty amateurish and egotistical. loads of infighting and sketchy strategy

take al Qaeda in Iraq and zarqwai... good insurgent leader but just ended up boasting how he was going to be the new emir of Islam on you tube..and before you could say ayatollah of rock'n'rolla the USA Jdammed his 20.

being an isis high-level operative is not a long term career..life expectancy is not great is it.


..not really clear what they want or consider realistic goals... maps with big black shaded parts is about as much clarity you can find..you get reports that Isis is just the saudi religious police system writ large across the "Caliphate" to notions its an end of the world cult. just a load of fucking garbage...not a clearly defined goal like ETA, the PKK or the IRA. the Chechnya lot are more simply nationalistic and comprehensible I guess or at least were before they got hammered.

meanwhile Russia continues its non liner post modern mash up for the kids in syria too

I kinda liked Istanbul for its insanity. that said the Halabja charity party got luggage raped by customs the last time they used Istanbul as a transfer stop to sulaimaniya which is why they avoid it now... go via Jordan now

Turkey... not so tolerant of charities that operate in Kurdish areas these days.

it always sounds worse than it is thou with this sort of thing... if you wander around without local knowledge anywhere you can get unstuck.

20 Trillion in debt and interest rates are about as low as they can get.  I imagine the chi-coms figure they can bankrupt us in the same manner.
They might be right.

well its an option.

but they are suffering from fat cat-itus too these days.

the referendum campaign is under way right now so large crowds and demonstrations may not be great to get involved with..

probably ok if you are sensible and don't act like a dick but understand the concerns. if you have local support and knowledge to guide you I would say ok but if you just wander in there not such a good idea.

i got mugged/pick pocketed 3 times in 2 days in instanbul and that was years ago before all this shit. sort of like c crowd compression pickpocketing


oddly i enjoyed my stay. i never went out with much money or passport/documents worth stealing so only lost a few quid each time.

I think having local guide knowledge would be key in my decision making.

attacking parliament square with highest density of security in town is a bit dumb unless they had a decent suicide car bomb.

not going to last long with random driving and stabbing.

better off mowing down shoppers in Woodford or somewhere less protected.

I suppose shutting down parliament gets you bonus points. auto ramming spree killing is getting popular.

see if there are follow ups

its a bit like the collapse of the soviet union and the fall of the wall...


Reagan and the GOP took the credit for bringing it about despite the fact the USSR was falling apart quite well on its own.

In the same way I suspect non-linear warfare gurus in the kremlin will be making alsorts of exaggerated claims about the efficacy of there efforts despite the fact the USA is quite capable of fucking itself up.
