Go on read up on what ISIL is. Sunni muslim movement that has no roots in political affairs.
Some sunnis refer to ISIL as "Al Dawlah" which means "The state / the true state".
Regarding the origins of ISIL, it is sparked by releasing Al Qaeda prisoners in Syria. Al Qaeda later stated that they want nothing to do with these people because of their extreme methods, Islamic State was founded and then they took over parts of Syria and Iraq, naming the country Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

Canadian soldiers are being murdered by ISIL terrorists and in Holland it is now forbidden to wear your uniform outside of military bases.
ISIL hates the US and the entire western AND Eastern world, from declaring war on Russia to war on NATO.

you don't seem to understand me. I'm saying that the poor state in which US left those country is the reason why this shit is possible. If people aren't desperate, they won't wadge wars.
User avatar #51 - jdrinfantry (11/07/2014) [-]
Well then explain to me how Syria went from tourism / happy days to civil war.
Those people weren't desperate, and you can't tell me that somehow we're to blame for what happened there. Little to no foreign involvement on that conflict.

If you ask me, I think it was a mistake to not get involved in Syria, since that is where ISIL came from. It's basically a terrorist resort now.
#76 - lesotho (11/07/2014) [-]
It is what happens when a big country has several interests in your territory... Oil, Gas, allied with Russia, near Iran and Israel... They seem the perfect place for "democracy" made in the US. You know, tons of money and weapons given to the right people and suddenly there is a revolution. Every politic in NATO knew all those resources where capted by radical muslim groups like ISIL and they kept sending it.

It is always the same story everywhere the US has economical or geopolitical interest. Libya, Egypt, Syria, Ucraine...
User avatar #85 - jdrinfantry (11/07/2014) [-]
the US didn't intervene in Syria. THAT is the crucial difference I brought up.
ISIL are radical muslims and they have seized oil fields in Syria, still no respond from the western world, and tell me, how does it look in Syria now? Is it better than Afghanistan or Iraq?
#115 - lesotho (11/07/2014) [-]
Well, what I meant is that NATO did intervene in Syria. War is not just a bunch of soldiers firing each other. If the US and their allies (and I am afraid my country is one of them) wanted peace in the region they should have left them alone. Syria is a secular state and NATO gave weapons to several groups to destabilize the country. One of those were the radical islamic ISIL. They kept giving weapons even when the Liberation Front of Syria (not sure if this is the name), who were fighting for a western-like democracy asked them to stop because they thought ISIL was much more dangerous than Assad, and as far as we have seen they were right.
User avatar #116 - jdrinfantry (11/07/2014) [-]
as far as I heard CIA had been largely unsuccessful in that attempt last year. Basically what NATO had done was disarm Assads biological weapons.

Besides, ISIL weaponry = Russian leftovers, american seized weapons from their campaign in Iraq and also "Blackmarket weapons" huh.
User avatar #55 - dantemp (11/07/2014) [-]
I'm actually not informed enough to give you an answer. I'm sure that things aren't as simple as I may made them seem, but I also know that the proneness for civil wars in Africa and the Middle east is due to the low culture level in those places, and if you want to truly liberate them you need to find a way to make them more civilized. And not by force. Maybe when we start sending robots that can take care of every need of theirs and poverty becomes a thing of the past then we could have true liberations.
User avatar #59 - jdrinfantry (11/07/2014) [-]
Syria was civilized. It was like Hawaii, people went there on vacation, to resorts. Educated population, good youth culture and all that. It was like any western country basically.
War is likely to strike anywhere, anytime but people just don't like to hear it. Like the crisis in Ukraine. It scares us. Thing is we need to get involved for it to end well. If we ingore it, it becomes a growing threat.

I liked the first two seasons but now all the characters that made me originally like the show are just gone, and the ones left are changed. I liked when rick was the guy who would give everyone a chance even in the apocalypse and when Glenn was the skinny geek type guy etc. Now it just seems like the show is just trying to make them all bad-asses who fuck shit up, when that's really nothing original.

Except we are guiding them. Several foreign advisors are currently working in in the middle east to help stabilize the countries in different ways, agricultural, military, educational etc.

Besides why do people think that this was done by the US alone? That's a NATO led coalition with over 30 countries involved.

The Ba'ath party in iraq is gone.
Al Qaeda in Afghanistan is without influence and no longer see it as a safehaven.
Taleban are struggling to maintain some influence but only have a real grip on Helmand and Kandahar in Afghanistan.
User avatar #89 - salihzzz (11/07/2014) [-]
1 yes BA'ATH weaken, but americans supported the muslim radical rebels which later became isis.
So actually invaded a country made it as bad as hell and then basicly made it even worse, but thanks for rebuilding that water station you destroyd and that ISIS destroyed like 5 minutes ago

2 Don't even start with al qaeda or the taliban the US created both and afganistan is a shithole now that even the afgans don't want

you're the one that doesn't get shit not anon now have funn tlaking about shit you know nothing about
User avatar #95 - jdrinfantry (11/07/2014) [-]
US created Taliban and Al Qaeda? Such a common misconception. The US funded The Northern Alliance during the war against the soviets. It is probably this incident you're referring too.

The Northern Alliance split up into different groups, INCLUDING the taleban. but also including the Pashtuns that we are still helping and are leading the coalition.
Al Qaeda is a Saudi funded terror organization.

The shithole of Afghanistan is limited to the two regions I named earlier. Kandahar and Helmand (I personally served 6 months in Helmand).
ISIL was founded in a country with no western influence (Syrian Civil war) How is that the americans fault?
User avatar #98 - salihzzz (11/07/2014) [-]
Are you fucking kidding me, so all the behind the sences arm trades and money transfers to those groups that have been discoverd are just to be ignored? What about documented evidence of american leaders and ISIS and al qaeda figure heads?

I tought it was an insult when that guy said you watch fox news but you're confirming it.

Syria was not a war started by the west? You believe that Saudi propoganda is not influenced if not dictated by the west? how come all the legions of retards the saudis called to syria from all over the world got funded by the west and completely armed by america and even have land bases in turkey?

It is not a misconception it's a fact that has been proven that the media is trying to convey as a miconception get your information somewhere else, televised propagande won't do
User avatar #102 - jdrinfantry (11/07/2014) [-]
This is a fucking lie. The west has had NO INFLUENCE on the things going on in Syria.
We see Assad as an enemy and we sure as HELL see ISIL as an enemy. We're bombing the shit out of them afterall.

Documented evidence of american leaders with ISIS and Al Qaeda leaders? Where do you find this BS?
User avatar #103 - salihzzz (11/07/2014) [-]
for fucks sake, are you serious? use google.

So you're trying to tell me, small rebelions start in Syria. With assad holding the clear upperhand out of nowhere the saudis and other US allied nations declare it a muslim war (wich it clearly isn't) this results in a large number of muslims flocking to fight assad ( yeah sure this just happends to fit in america's plan but ofc they didn do nuffin) turkey a known ally of the US and the Arab nations under the US opens its borders for these terrorist from the get go (lets just act that this is a weird concidince and has nothing to do with an allied plan against syria) These terrorsts go trough turkeys border (turkey allowing this and even having already set up bases in turkey for these terorists, but yeah this is also just a weird coincidence) then these armies just happen to find a huge number of western weaponry that has been proven to come from the US ( but yeah another coincidence) and as soon as they're armed they even get funded to continue their campaign. But yeah these are just coincidences and terrorist that are known to hate the US and Israel decide to fullfill all their wishes and not once strike at one of its allies

Do you truly believe all american colflicts are being taken care of by themselves?

'Even when Sunnis fight Ba'athists' This proves you have no idea what the fuck you're saying

Ba'athism is a muslim ideology of how a state should be runn
Sunnis is a group within islam

Why are you trying to show this as two religious groups fighting when they are both one and the same. The Ba'athists are Assad and his follower, the majority of the syrian army are sunni syrian trying to save their country.

And you didn't prove me wrong nor debated me on what i said so please look it up educate yourself and stop thinking world governments tell the people what they want and how they'll do it
User avatar #112 - jdrinfantry (11/07/2014) [-]
Implying I don't know what I'm talking about
Goes on to say that Assad is a ba'athist.
What is ISIL / ISIS / IS? Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant / Syria. (Sunnis call it "Al Dawlah")
Assad is fighting against ISIL am I right?
User avatar #117 - salihzzz (11/08/2014) [-]
Assad isn't? not even a branched of ba'athist?

what do you understand under ba'athism? www.google.be/#q=Ba%27athists
User avatar #120 - jdrinfantry (11/08/2014) [-]
Assad is an Alawite which is a minority of about 10% of the population of Syria. That's why I said it was sunnis fighting Ba'athists.
It is rightwing sunni jihadists fighting leftwing ba'athists wouldn't you agree?
User avatar #121 - salihzzz (11/08/2014) [-]
no i can't agree because your wording is wrong, this is the same mistake you made earlier, alawites are a religious group while baathists are a political movement.

Its like you're saying WW2 germany was a war between christians and nazis because the majority of people fighting hitler were of christian descent and hitler was an atheist with the majority of his party following his views. the connection can be made but is just completely wrong

The war in syria is a battle between the west and its allies fighting assad and his allies the russians. The russians aided assad by sending weapons and the west aided the rebels by creating the cause and sending them litteraly everything they needed.

if we dont use global politics then its still a fight if sunni syrians fighting outside sunnis the rebels. For all we know the original rebels are sunnis with a baatist political view, do you understand one doesn't cancel the other out. Assad is an alawute but the majority of his forces are sunni
User avatar #124 - jdrinfantry (11/08/2014) [-]
The west are at war with ISIL, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah and everyone fighting Assad. So you're wrong.
These groups I mentioned are all rightwing sunni groups, that's what they have in common.
Assad is an alawite, yes, but he is also the leader of the ba'athist party, a leftwing arab party in Syria. All Assads forces aren't alawites, they're ba'athists though. So saying that it is a fight between sunni rightwing jihadists and a leftwing ba'athist party is the only right way to say it. There are no russian forces in Syria, no americans it's just Sunni rightwing organizations fighting the ba'athists, who have been abandoned by their previous allies.

Public Relations bullshit?
Over 25.000 danish men and women served in those bloody wars, 2000 wounded, 48 casualties. Compared to the size our country we have lost more men than any other country involved.
We've been on the frontlines ever since we started sending troops to Afghanistan. Half of the Forward Operating Bases in Helmand have been manned by danish forces and even built by danish forces.
User avatar #93 - salihzzz (11/07/2014) [-]
25000 men not that few i'll be honest
2000 wounded fairly low if all 25000 served on the front line as you stated
48 casualties since the start? fucking peanuts man

25000 on the frontline for 10 years 48 dead. something is off
User avatar #100 - jdrinfantry (11/07/2014) [-]
We are talking both Iraq and Afghanistan here.
In Afghanistan 9.500 danish soldiers have served since January 2002. We've substained 43 casualties in Afghanistan.
Go on look up how many soldiers that is compared to other countries in the coalition.
We're a country with a population of 5 million people.
User avatar #101 - salihzzz (11/07/2014) [-]
yes i'm not discussing the fact that you sent a lot of men, you did
i'm just saying if 25000 thousand men fought on the 'frontline' for more than a decade losing only 48 soldiers clearly shows that those soldiers were not fighting on the frontline they were probably just there for security and patrols and that number would correlate nicely with casualties from IED or snipers.
#104 - jdrinfantry (11/07/2014) [-]
You clearly don't know what you're talking about.
There are logistics, EODs, mortars, tank squadrons, EWs and HQs to supply a single infantry company.
Look up on some of the ISAF mission reports on what the danish soldiers did. Panthers Claw, Budwan, PBL, Gereskh City you name it. We were there. Not as support, or for security we are some of the best soldiers to serve in that war.

User avatar #106 - salihzzz (11/07/2014) [-]
yes i never said you don't have well trained forces are sent a lot of troops in all im saying is you claimed you fought on the frontline while your deathtoll proves you served more of a security and extra help role

"There are logistics, EODs, mortars, tank squadrons, EWs and HQs to supply a single infantry company. " i'm studieying logistics managment with a main goal for war logistics please don't count these people as soldiers for they are not. all the rest are but still low deathrate for a vanguard
User avatar #113 - jdrinfantry (11/07/2014) [-]
Logistical forces in Afghanistan have suffered some of the heaviest losses alongside EOD's.
I'm personally an infantryman.
Look at the ISAF mission casualties is what I said. Every danish ISAF contingent has served in PBL, FOB Armadillo / Keenan / Sandford / Gereskh City. We ALWAYS send both special forces, mechanised infantry and a tank squadron.
We weren't part of some make believe "help role" We fought on our own, trained the ANA and were in charge of our own forward operating bases. Our casualty rate is higher than the british. That's a fact.
User avatar #118 - salihzzz (11/08/2014) [-]
wgat are you even babbling about all i said is casualties are low if you claim every single soldier fought on the frontlines from day one till now. which clearly isn't the case or you'd have by far the best army the world has ever seen i mean 25000 constantly on the front line in 10 years and only 45 dead, dayum i doubt 25000 terminators would have that low death count for that much action

and no the uk has more than 400 losses in afghanistan
User avatar #119 - jdrinfantry (11/08/2014) [-]
They have 400 casualties but how many have they had deployed since the beginning of the war?
There's a rotation every 6 months, we've had a contingent of about 7-800 men. We have had men on the frontlines since january 2002 and that's a fact. inarguable fact.

Kunar valley's USMCs has experienced a lower casualty rate than us. Go watch restrepo and put that shit into some perspective.
User avatar #122 - salihzzz (11/08/2014) [-]
these are numbers i can deal with, a rotation of 600 to 700 men on the frontile is huge differance with your original statement of 25000 being on the frontline from the start.

Do you understand? a continous front of 25000 danes would be a huge frontline army with only 45 losses is ridiculous. having 25000 men been there but only a standart army of 600 to 700 hundred fighting with them being circulated by an entire army of 25000 greatly reduces the size of the frontline so the casualties do fit with that number.

That means you had a total of 800 man at the frontline continuously, instead of how you stated it to be 25000 men continously on the frontline. This makes sence your first statement of a frontline of 25000 men does not
User avatar #125 - jdrinfantry (11/08/2014) [-]
Also the 25.000 men is the total number of deployed soldiers from 2002 - 2014 including the men who served in Iraq, I made that very clear.
So the correct number is a contigent varying from 300 - 800 men at a total of 9.500 in Afghanistan since january 2002.
User avatar #127 - salihzzz (11/08/2014) [-]
you do understand that the 25000 sent are personel not all soldiers and you do understand that even if they were all active soldiers serving in afghanistan and iraq doesn't mean the same as stating that 25000 soldiers were fighting on the frontline from the start to the end. The 500 men on the frontline does sound realistic
User avatar #130 - jdrinfantry (11/08/2014) [-]
Look at my original comment "OVER 25000 MEN AND WOMEN HAVE SERVED IN THESE BLOODY WARS". How did you interpret what you just did from what I said?
User avatar #132 - salihzzz (11/08/2014) [-]
"We've been on the frontlines ever since we started. " and further in your comment, my problem with your wording is how you are trying to make it look like the danish forces were on the frontline from the start with 25000 troops and took the teritory.

Thats not what happend the vast majority of taken territory and decisive combat was lead by germand dutch UK, canadian and american forces so stop making it look like the danes were one of the most important parties you were not. your main role has been to keep the area stable and not lose land

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_in_Afghanistan_%282001%E2%80%93present%29

Only the dutch sufferd less casualties from you, and it isn't stated where both casualties come from

read the entire link and give me one big operation that would've turned differant if the danes weren't there. on the other hand removing the germans canadians americans , turks, ausies or any of them and the war would've been differant.

you are importan for keeping the area secure, something any nation can do. but you weren't import for any big operation or the conquest of afganistan

Also I've been very clear from the beginning where it says "25.000 men and women in these bloody wars" That's very clear it wasn't continually, every ISAF contributing country rotates Alpha Bravo Charlie..
User avatar #123 - jdrinfantry (11/08/2014) [-]
Well you could save the talk and just look it up really...
User avatar #126 - salihzzz (11/08/2014) [-]
i have

the danes don't have an active army of 25000 on thefrontline that is stupid and retarded, and saying that only 45 of them died is beyond stupid.

Your second point stating that the total danish army in foreign territory is 25000 is closer to reality, your next point that there's only 9500 troops in afghanistan is correct but these troops don't all serve on the frontline (Denmark, a NATO member, sent 9,500 personnel to Afghanistan between January 2002 and 1 July 2013. They were mostly stationed in Helmand province as part of NATO's International Security and Assistance Force (ISAF).) they're a security force mainly to maintain order.

Now your last change is closest to reality having only 700 men at the frontline wich are circulated from the 9500 serving is absolutely correct and would explain having 45 casualties.
User avatar #128 - jdrinfantry (11/08/2014) [-]
ISAF is the mission name of the nato forces in Afghanistan for fuck sake. It doesn't say anything about the specific task
Helmand IS the frontline of the war.
User avatar #129 - salihzzz (11/08/2014) [-]
it is not you retarded cunt you and your mates calling it the frontline doesn't make it the frontline. this is a guerilla warfare based war there is no active frontline. so what is left of frontlines is the brief and not too often clashes of both forces this barely happends anymore, a handfull afgans shooting from a mountain then running off is not a frontline that is the issue i'm having whit your wording
User avatar #133 - jdrinfantry (11/08/2014) [-]
ISAF IS THE FUCKING MISSION NAME OF AFGHANISTAN. GO AND WIKIPEDIA IT FOR FUCK SAKE.
There's not a foreign soldier unless they're in the UN mission called UNAMA that doesn't wear a badge that says ISAF.
User avatar #135 - salihzzz (11/08/2014) [-]
when the fuck did i say that ISAF was something else? when?

All i said is the danes are primarily a security force not a frontline force, not a spec ops force, and not a conquest force.

Your job is to stay put and hope a sheep fucker doesn't get you
User avatar #147 - jdrinfantry (11/09/2014) [-]
I getcha. Got so drunk last night that I dont even recall how I got home and I just got up now.. It's like 4:30 pm here. Oh well, drink some water and then drink some more water.
User avatar #148 - salihzzz (11/09/2014) [-]
haha yeah i will thanks man, i'm pretty sure i was still drunk when i got up, its gon be a hard day.
User avatar #145 - jdrinfantry (11/09/2014) [-]
I see me and colleagues as the best warriors I do. But I was specific about the area of operation, and its size.
We have earned a name for ourselves in this war in the eyes of the british commanders we fought for, and the enemy we fought.
User avatar #146 - salihzzz (11/09/2014) [-]
not in the mood man i'm hung over like a motherfucker

anyway i do respect you for it don't get me wrong
User avatar #143 - jdrinfantry (11/08/2014) [-]
Well, it always sounds like this war was fought by the US alone. that's a major misunderstanding.
User avatar #144 - salihzzz (11/08/2014) [-]
true thats kind of what got me going your phrasing was like danes were one of the the top fighjters in the war

Min Krig: Omringet af Taleban - Afsnit 1:4 (Official trailer)
I agree with you. but I didn't even take the danish "HJV" into consideration when I said the 25.000 total forces. Also a lot of the FOBs we served with have been under daily mortar attacks, also they've been so close to the PBLs under the cover of night that they threw hand grenades over the walls.
User avatar #142 - salihzzz (11/08/2014) [-]
yeah the 25000 was a misundrstanding

but i don't understand your point, yes i know the danes served in afganistan and yes some died and most fought, but so did al coalition members the danes have not earned any bragging rights

Search for danish special forces in Afghanistan.
we actually have something resembling a national guard that were in charge of base protection.
User avatar #139 - salihzzz (11/08/2014) [-]
but thats the entire point of our discussion "the frontline" part.

25000 doesnt make sence altough i might have misunderstood you there
protecting bases is not seen as having frontline action unless these bases face heavy attack
User avatar #131 - jdrinfantry (11/08/2014) [-]
Enough.
There's a thing in Helmand called Patrol Base Line
Everything north of that is Taleban territory. THAT is one of the only frontlines left in Afghanistan.

**minionofdolan rolled a random image posted in comment #6 at Well Shit... ** Nope sadly Im not trolling Ive been lurking beta threads, feels threads, and others along the same lines for about 4 days straight now across many chans. Im self esteem is at its lowest and I feel like venting to someone even if its a stranger on the internet. For you see in my real little world I am alone. I have no friends, most of family lives out of state, GF lives about 2 hours north of me so I only see her every couple months or so If Im lucky. Nope its just me. I guess im the stereotypical dork that is a basement dweller and has no life. I spend 90% of my time while not working of course on FJ,Chans,or a few mmo sites I play on that or some xbox that's about it. Sadly I love playing vidya games but Im terrible at most. If you ever checked my **** its always at the lowest difficulty due to me not being able to actually play very well. More later I suppose. So I know this is a stupid amerifag question but never been out of the u.s What is it like where you hail from?
User avatar #26 to #25 - dantemp (11/18/2013) [-]
Well, that's a difficulty question. I've never been in America (never actually lived anywhere, except in Rome for a week, for one disastrously bad PES tournament) so I can't have an informed opinion.

That being said, I've watched enough television and read enough things, to have the opinion that here is quite less cool.
There are things that are ridiculously bad, like the fact that most of the people have salaries around $400 per month but the fuel is something like twice more expensive. Same with gaming, if you pay $400 for a PS4, I pay 400 euros, which is ******** . Don't get me started on health care, it is normal for a people that can't work anything to not get any help, not to mention people insane to the point of inability to take care of themselves.
It's not all bad though, you still can do good things if you know what you're doing. You still can make money. The mentality of the people older than me is ****** up though. My father for instance is convinced that the term "defending your rights" is fairytale. Good that my mother taught me to do it, so I recently managed to fix a tax that was unfairly given to me. As a whole people that have grown during the socialist regime are pretty ****** up, bitter, angry and aggressive. There are exception of course, but most of the times someone gets on my nerve, is someone like that. We have our " ******* " - gypsies. Their culture is pretty barbarian, but this being "anti racist" times, our government does almost nothing about it, actually condoning their criminal behavior. They make me see why some people could grow racist. It's not right, but I can see why it can happen. I've written a post about it here: www.funnyjunk.com/if+we+all+could+just+learn+from+this/funny-pictures/4886208/108#108

Our political state is a joke. None of the parties seem fit to rule over the country. There was this one guy that seemed good (he ****** up our health and school systems, but we know why he did it, moving the money to take care of the infrastructure of country and actually finishing what he started) but recently he acted like a little bitch, giving up to the pressure some assholes put upon him and resigning 3-4 months before the new election (he was a prime minister and he pulled off everyone from his party) and I lost faith in him too. Now the people that got the most votes are ex-socialist and people are protesting like crazy. I think the mob in front of the government is there for 6 months now.

Anything more specific?
