Syria War thread Bernd 09/10/2017 (Sun) 20:54:54 [Preview] No. 10248
Because rondam news is too small to contain it

ISIS in Deir ez-Zor got almost rekt, siege is broken.

YPG forces started their own offensive and arrived in north of Deir ez-Zor.
>US-Led Coalition ‘Will Not Allow’ Syrian Army To Cross Euphrates River In Deir Ezzor
I except they start fighting with each other soon, maybe even tomorrow, while ISIS will occasionaly bomb a car or a tank on both sides.

ISIS in eastern Homs are getting gradually removed and hopefully soon they will be containet in the east.

There was something about Israel entering Lebanon air space and Syria reacting with anti air defence but sadly I lost link to proofs.

ISIS made a succesfull attack on a road between Palmyra and Deir Ez Zor, but SAA recaptured it day later. There are still some forces east of Palmyra. Looks like ISIS have still some power, more then I though.

Also some intense bombing on rebel territory between Aleppo and Hama. Assad tried invade but was repelled.

It's not in the Qur'an but it's in the Hadith that Muslims should shave their upper lip.
It also says that Muslims have to shave body hair, and even says that this is minor jihad, which means that this is jihad a Muslim wages on his body.

So basically we have a new war on our hands. Iraq is against the Kurds. Turks are against the Kurds. What's the standpoint of Assad and Co's in this question. If these could join forces then the independent Kurdish state is done.

What's next for ISIS? They don't really have ties to any land they could just pop up anywhere, don't they?

That's a lot of markers on that map.
It's like shit there is more intense then in Syria. Also why are they fighting? I know syrian kurds are gommies supported by USA, but I though iraqi ones have different views and were granted some kind of autonomy by Iraq gov?
Also also I talked with Iranian guy some time ago, and he told me that Kurds are actually an ethnic group from Iran, and that they should just return there and stop starting shit around middle east. I guess if that is true then I support this idea.

If you would monitor that map frequently you would notice that ISIS pockets pop up without warning in the middle of syrian controled territory.
I guess after raqqa they will have to go down the tiger river and remove everything from there, and then eventually hunt all the hidden remnats across the country.

Kurds had independence referendum. Kirkuk wasn't part of autonomous Kurdistan, but was under Kurdish control after ISIS got rekt. Kirkuk was included in the referendum. Considering mass exodus of people when Iraqi army moved in, majority of actual Kirkuk inhabitants are outside as refugees anyway, and people voting for independence in Kirkuk were Kurds who moved in from elsewhere.

Oh, and should I mention, Kirkuk has oil, and was the first target Iraq threatened to seize from Kurds should they actually decide to secede.

Otherwise, Kurds are ethnically Iranian, but borders in the Middle East don't follow neither historical nor ethnic divisions. So if anything, entire Kurdistan should be part of Iran. And in any case. Kurds aren't a single ethnic group.

As much as I think Kurdistan deserves their independence for successfully fighting off ISIS, geopolitically they were always fucked and independence is impossible. An independent Iraqi Kurdistan would be a landlocked country surrounded by Iraq, Iran, and Turkey (and maybe Syria). They need sponsorship from at least one of these but instead all of them are antagonistic to independence.
Although what I just is not entirely true. Ironically Iran seems to be their current best bet, as they seem to be 'closet friends'. (Maybe it has something to do with >>11248 saying they are ethnically Iranian.) Assuming that PUK abandoned Kirkuk because Iran told them to is true, this is actually the correct decision for any chance of Kurdish independence/autonomy depends on Iran. An independent Kurdistan, if it ever exists, would then likely to be in Iran's sphere of influence, just like Iraq.

>current best bet
The only bet actually. Or is it really?
Funny thing, Israel seems to be on friendly terms on Kurds if I'm not mistaken, and while they wouldn't have common border Israel is a considerable force in the Middle East.
How's the relations between Iran and Iraq? Because both Turkey and Iran are aspiring to be a leading power in the region so if Iraq has some hostility then Iran might step in to gain an ally.
But then that would be an impossible love triangle with Israel, Kurdistan and Iran.

Bernd 10/16/2017 (Mon) 17:59:22 [Preview] No. 11257 del
From what I understand about Israel, I believe they support Kurdistan for two reasons:
1) Kurds don't hate Israel
2) Their ongoing doctrine to destabilize (and keep destabilized) Middle Eastern countries to prevent any more Arab-Israeli Wars

However a great power Israel is, it's meaningless in the context of Kurdistan if they are unable to logistically and economically support them. Air logistics are infeasible on a mass scale, hence why land borders are so important. The same is true of any US support to an independent Kurdistan.

>How's the relations between Iran and Iraq?
I'm not an expert on this, but I imagine it to be fairly good, with them both being Shiites and generous military support from Iran to Iraq in fending off ISIS. As you've mentioned it yourself, Iran has aspirations to be a leading power, but personally I think their aspirations exceed that; they want to become a great power on par with the likes of US, China, Russia etc. If you're looking for a more in-depth analysis on this relationship I'm afraid I don't really have anything to add.

Bernd 10/16/2017 (Mon) 18:37:19 [Preview] No. 11258 del
Iran and Iraq are historically bitter rivals, but it would seem they're starting to cooperate lately.

The relationship between Kurds and Israel is more that Kurds want to lick Israel's boots in hope of getting something in return. So far, Israel has been supportive, but I don't think that's relevant in the big game.

They've spent many years as one of the minor groups holding no territory, so they'll just revert to that state and focus on terrorist acts and desert guerilla activity.

Is there any info on the strength of the parties out there? Should be a list of units on SAA, an order of battle or some such and estimates on rebel forces too.

Bernd 11/24/2017 (Fri) 01:41:44 [Preview] No.12112 del
There are outdated estimates of the strength of each faction, see pic related. Getting orders of battle is much harder, though. For the rebels and SDF, we know of individual rebel groups and their coalitions, but not of the internal structure of these groups. An interesting thing is the territory held by each rebel group, which is largely uknown and only becomes apparent when they fight each other.

For the loyalists, the SAA's prewar order or battle is known, but that's not very useful. From the very beginning, political distrust, draft dodging and defections meant only a fraction of it was actually mobilized. The regime resorted to other sources of manpower, and thus the SAA has become just one of the several loyalist forces, together with foreign fighters (Hezbollah, Palestinians, Afghans, Iraqis, Russians and Iranians), local forces (NDF and tribes), private forces (Desert Hawks until their disbandment), sectarian or ideological militias (Ba'ath Brigades, Syrian resistance and the Shi'a and Druze militias) and so on.
There have been attempts to document its wartime order of battle, but they've always rapidly become outdated. But whenever there's a new battle, usually the units present are informed.

As for ISIS, I have no clue. All that's known are some specific rebel groups and tribes that pledged allegiance.

Dolan phoned the Kayser-i Rûm for some serious discussions about the Middle East.

The most serious result was his pledge to stop arming the SDF:
>“President Trump instructed [his generals] in a very open way that the YPG will no longer be given weapons. He openly said that this absurdity should have ended much earlier,” Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu told reporters after the phone call

Someone on Plebbit claimed that Trump would blackmail Erdogan by threatening to blacklist T*rkish banks that broke sanctions against Iran. However, all we know so far is that America gave a concession to Turkey, pledging to stop arming the YPG. See:

>“President Trump instructed [his generals] in a very open way that the YPG will no longer be given weapons. He openly said that this absurdity should have ended much earlier,” Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu told reporters after the phone call

Nothing was said about air support and military advisors, but this is already a victory for Erdogan. So Trump either traded this pledge + not blacklisting the banks for a greater concession from Turkey, or he didn't mention the banks and went for a smaller concession. Which likely consists of Turkey slowing down its buildup of relations with Russia and Iran.

>pasta factory reaches full capacity

There was a Soviet urban legend about pasta factories, that they would produce bullets in war times. And that most types of pasta has diameter of 7.62 because this.

As far as I know it isn't true though.

Are you sure it was pasta?
We have that urban legend about cigarette factories and canneries. The cig's diameter is 7.62 mm, the slim's is 5.56. The smaller can is grenade size, the larger one is 120mm.
Nevertheless it is true or not these urban legend reflects an age when factories were planned for easy change to wartime production.
We also had another aspect in the mix to have a great joge. The socialist regime in it's last two decades closed it's eyes - almost supported - when people "communized" stuff from their workplaces. So a saying emerged: "No matter what I stole from the factory when I assemble it at home, it's a T-34."

Yes, cigarettes were in legend too. There is also versions about buttons (legend says they have autocannon caliber like 20 or 30 mm), vodka bottles (artillery shells) and even soap bricks (same size as some explosives).

I can't remember about canneries and it is look logical - canned food is required even at war as main type of food for soldiers, so these factories wouldn't change main product.

>Nevertheless it is true or not these urban legend reflects an age when factories were planned for easy change to wartime production.

It is true that factories will change production, but you can't actually make bullets on spaghetti- or cigaterre-making machine, and thing about diameters is mostly a lie. Technical process of making cigarette, pasta or bottle is pretty much different than same process for ammunition and related things.

More generic tools of factory will be surely used for war needs, but it isn't easy fast change.

>No matter what I stole from the factory when I assemble it at home, it's a T-34

Yes, same joke exist here.

>people "communized" stuff from their workplaces

And even same term for stealing from work.

I've heard "luchar" (literally "to fight") is an euphemism for that in Cuba.

Mostly not. The cigarette really is 7.62 and the slim is 5.56.
That's been said cigarettes are war materials as well and needs to be produced in wartime.

It is pretty fun that word "terrorist" is used in this context now. ISIS in Syria couldn't be really called terrorists because full scale rebellion/civil war/insurgency/whatever is not terrorism in original meaning, even if it conducted by organization that supports terror acts abroad. Or you may call Germans from WW2 terrorists too (from Allied point of view).

Looks like American "war on terror" did a good work, now every bad dude is terrorist. Will we see terrorists as nation in future?

I've two more thing to add.
An organization can be viewed as terrorist depending how it treats the civilian populace. For example a guerrilla group who (deliberately) attacks civilian targets isn't guerrilla anymore but terrorist.
Then the scale on a group works doesn't really matters. Even states can be considered terrorist if they use terror (inducing crippling fear in the civilians to make them obey, a more or less typical example is Hungary in the first half of the 1950's) on the populace.
So with that in mind I would say ISIS can be called as a terrorist organization.

Not exactly new. It has some advantages but national identity would suffer on the long run and no basis to form an European identity which could take that place over. Without that there won't be any will in the people to preserve that political unit and this would make it susceptible to foreign attacks. This would be the end of USE some other state/states would form on the ashes assimilating those who left.

Loyalist-rebel fighting is back in full force. Besides some other clashes, fighting is mostly taking place on three fronts: the greater Idlib area, attacked from the south (where Suheil al-Hassan has arrived recently) and east, and the Beit Jenn pocket near the Golan Heights.

Assad has repeatedly stated his intention to crush Rojava, but its ultimate fate rests on whatever Russia, Turkey and America agree on.

He's already doing it.

Apparently rebels in the Beit Jenn pocket have already negotiated their surrender and evacuation with the government.

I see Assad moved his troops that fighted isis and used full force about rebels. I have expected something on kurdish-syrian border but as for now there's nothing. Article mentions Assad wants to take back control of 100% of the land, which means he will have to do something about kurds eventually. Also Russia was against that offensive, but will they actually do something to stop it?

Not just his own troops. Now that the war in Iraq is over, Iraqi Shia militias and Iranian assets previously tied over the border are now back to Syria.

>Article mentions Assad wants to take back control of 100% of the land, which means he will have to do something about kurds eventually.
He wants to crush Rojavathe "Democratic Federation of Northern Syria", but there'll be nothing he'll be able to do if America, Russia, Iran and Turkey decide that there should be an autonomous region or if America decides to prop up its sphereling by keeping a permanent military presence there -a real possibility, though it'd push Erdogan even further away into the Russo-Iranian side.

They can ask Assad to stop and it is in his interests to do it.

Assad did many stupid things in the past (alienating Kurds was a mistake for example), and he clearly knows that going against will of main supporter is a pretty bad move. Dreaming about big united Syria is fun, but he technically couldn't make it, it is obvious, he barely survived war with local jihadist.

Although sometimes I think that stupidity of Middle Easterners isn't a joke or a stereotype.

It looks like rebels launched a counterattack behind the main SAA force slogging toward the airfield. They might want to ambitiously cut them off or they try to divert attention and bait the government forces to commit more units on that part of the front which could delaying the airfield's occupation and slow the northward advancement. This would give some time to the rebels for evacuating their forces from the eastern pocket.
Too bad I dunno how units are deployed.

So in the west on the Khuwayn front the rebels has the upper hand for now and on the east side of the Abu ad Duhur salient ISIS became active attacking both government and rebel forces. SAA advances stopped it seems after they gulped a big green blob NE from the airport. They want to control that road coming from Aleppo and cut through the rebels along it. Might be the only usable supply and transportation route there.
