Give this site a read; http://ypg-international.org/support-ypg-in-rojava/

You will need to send them an encrypted email to ypgrevolution@protonmail.com through the protonmail service and they will advise you from there. Also take a look at what you will need to prepare before you go; https://archive.is/DFPnc

I did have a direct email to the IFB but their FB page is gone and I also had the transcript of all the questions they ask you when you email them. But don't worry, the questions are mostly to check that you are mentally sane and to make sure you won't throw battery acid on anyone.

Not really, when I said that they were "actively recruiting for unskilled manpower" I meant that they are interested in ideologically convicted people with sane minds. The YPG have unfortunately had a history of recruiting batshit insane ex-military folks and have probably realised that more politically aware people are less likely to be bloodthirsty adventurers.

But to answer your question more directly; no, you are not going to be called to human wave charge into t*rkey. Most IFB accounts note how most of the time you are sitting around in a outpost guarding a sector of a front and when the time comes your tabur will likely be selected to join in an offence. I can not think of any example of people being used as cannon fodder by the SDF.

Phone service is available as far as I am aware. I don't know what the charges are going to be like though. Internet is available but not always. That relies on how much time you spend at the front, access to the internet and electricity but you will definitely have access to the internet to an extent.

>i really want to read about those guys

I honestly don't have any links I can give you. I read most of the rumours of reddit and a few years ago, but I never really use the site so I have no idea were to find the quotes. I remember PissPig mentioning something on twitter about a nutjob getting kicked out. There was a medical team that got kicked out for having a retarded spergout with another ex-military tabur. I wish I could remember more stories but they are mostly just rumours I found on reddit a few years ago.

Actually, I remember one story of an American volunteer shooting at friendlies not that long ago. I think he got kicked out.

There also was a volunteer who left after complaining about how the YPG were racist against Arabs and then went and shilled for the far-right AfD online. He was an absolute loon.

 No.60594

Whether or not they have an airforce is irrelevant. Whatever becomes of the bases after the US leaves is purely speculation at this point. The US so far has not shown any political control over the area. There are no American corporations buying up assets in Rojava, nor are there really any economic or political ties beyond military cooperation at this point. I made this point in another thread, but it's worth noting that the government of Syria supported the creation of the YPG as a bulwark against ISIS once they left the area.

The Democratic Federation of Northern Syria is anything but an ethnostate. It's the most diverse coalition in the middle East: Arabs make a majority of both civilian and military councils, t*rkmens and Circassians have representation in minority assemblies, and the co-president is a Christian Syriac. It's also not a state, it's a non-state solution focusing on grassroots democracy, civil councils, workers co-ops, and agricultural communes. All of which are already in place.

As for Israel's support, it's purely vocal and doesn't mean shit; no material aid, no political shows of solidarity. Just a few mentions and tweets because the SDF doesn't actively lob misses at IDF positions.

The assassination is very interesting:

Ahmed Misto was a commander of the Sham Battalion (Turkish "FSA") and a Kurd. He was killed by a group who call themselves the "Hawks of Afrin." A day after he was killed, they released the second pic, saying they operate in Afrin against the t*rks and their proxies.

Thing is, Ahmed Misto was the only commander who was outspokenly against the looting of civilians and the ethnic cleansing of Afrin canton. Plus the YPG is already engaged in their own guerilla campaign. Idk, the whole thing is fishy

An attack by sleeper cells was stopped by security forces in Raqqa with one terrorist killed and two captured. Later, using the prisoners to investigate, the Raqqa Security Forces arrested 13 more sleeper agents. Pics related. A huge stockpile of weapons were later found. They were assumed to by those Kiyam fuckers but reports circulated that they had gotten help from jihadist elements of the Liwa Thuwar al-Raqqah. Shit is crazy.

Jihadist infighting has been going on in Afrin city and it's subdistricts

The YPG killed six jihadists and two t*rks just this week in clashes near Rajo

And the mysterious Efrîn Hawks have carried out bombings on two jihadist command centers and have carried out individual assassinations of fighters. The total for this week is about twenty confirmed. It's gotten so bad that a message from t*rkish MIT agents was leaked that was basically a pep talk to their mercenaries along the lines of "don't get killed please" and some groups of TFSA were reported to be wearing civilian clothes to avoid assassination.

Pics are of the bombings.

Crazy times to be in Afrin:

The t*rks launched a campaign against a regrouped and stronger YPG near Rajo. Airstrikes followed by large movements of t*rkish troops and smaller bands of jihadists. Two t*rks were killed along with a few dozen proxies. Keep in mind t*rkey is the only player in Syria to conduct airstrikes in territory it has "captured."

The YPG assassinated Muhammad Suleymanin, commander of the "Elite Units." First video is of the killing

The YPG also filmed the killing of some jihadist near Jinderes.

Rumors (both by YPG and SAA commanders) are that the SDF could join the upcoming Idlib offensive if Afrin is included. Not official, but both sides have hinted at joint operations since the SDC/Damascus meetings.

Lastly, the SDF handed over the remains of the SAA 93rd brigade that were found in a mass grave in Tabqa and Ayna Issa, massacred when ISIS took over. It's a good will gesture, again, in light of the meetings.

>Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad delivered a speech in Damascus, today, to commemorate the anniversary of the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) founding in 1945.

>Speaking to a crowd of soldiers, Assad began his speech by congratulating the Syrian Arab Army on their victories across Syria.

>“Men of dignity and sovereignty, I congratulate you on your 73rd Day while you are moving from one achievement to another and from one victory to another in the face of the systematic terrorism and its regional and international backers,” he began

>“Our heroic armed forces, you have proven to the whole world over the past seven years that you are an integrated example to follow in nationalism and sacrifice and that you are the fortresses in the face of terrorism,” he said.

>“Your sacrifices and heroism allowed us to reach toady the security and stability in most areas, and you have undermined the Zionist-American project which targets all without any exceptions” Assad continued

>“The liberated areas are returning secure and stable thanks to your heroism and sacrifices and their locals are returning to them again after they got rid of terrorism and its backers,” he told the crowd.

>President Assad concluded his speech by hailing the martyrs and wishing a speedy recovery for the injured, saying that “victory will be achieved soon.”

>Today’s ceremony marked the first time this year that Assad has delivered a speech to the Syrian Arab Army.

An American withdrawal would be bad right now. It would be a go ahead for t*rkey to invade.

American withdrawal should wait until the t*rkish Lira collapse is in full affect, and t*rkey is militarily unable to invade Manbij.

I don't think he ever says that the Kurds are not a single ethnic group. In fact at about 40 seconds in he specifically states that the Kurds a "an [singular] Iranian ethnic group".

It was a protest a week ago about the PYD and the Syriac Union Party closing and converting private run schools run by the Syriac church and reforming their curriculum. Some people chimped out and claimed that it was an attempt at destroying Syriac culture and language despite the reforms being backed by other Syriac groups and Syriac culture and language still being a part of the new curriculum.

The protests were more to do with a power struggle between TEV-DEM and the Syrian government in Qamishlo‎ than anything else.

To quote the The Syriac Cultural Association;

>he education organization which prepared the Syriac syllabus, has sent its teachers to the Syriac schools in order to meet the management of the schools and discuss the way of applying the new Syriac syllabus which is one of our existential issues

>We also assure that we absolutely reject closing the schools. We strongly approve that the schools should stay open and keep teaching knowledge and enlightenment. Thus, we hope that the schools teachers can coordinate with us and keep teaching

Additionally, Juche Anon is right about the KRG; they are a reactionary and feudal state backed by Israel.

Apparently the pro-Assad Syriacs in the private schools wanted to add more required Arabic language courses along the lines of the Ba'ath party lines. After the local administrations didn't approve the curriculum, the schools still introduced it. The Syriac Union Party would have none of it and Sutoro went in to close a few down. Tons of outlits promoted the "PYD/PKK oppressing minorities" line, despite the fact it was an internal division within the Syriac/Christian community (see Sutoro/Sootoro split in Qamishil). The YPG was nowhere during these occurrences.

These divisions have lasted for years, as is apparent by the numerous militas split down party factions for Syriacs (MFS, Khabour Guards, Nattoreh) despite their overall small size. Sadly for Juche poster, it's not an SDF vs. SAA deal, it's an Orthodox vs. Eastern Catholic vs. Church of the East religious divide plus a pro-state vs. pro-non state Dawronoye split.

tl;dr internal Christian/Syriac divide, not ebil mountain t*rks.

Honestly I don't think that *all* the attacks were staged (although some might have been). However I think the more important point to emphasize is that even if Assad did carry out gas attacks, it STILL wouldn't justify western intervention. Next time a liberal brings it up just ask them if they would be any more dead had they been bombed rather than gassed. Civillian casualties are unfortunate, but the idea of "war crimes" actually meaning anything is laughable, there has literally never been a war ever fought without atrocities on both sides, simply because its basically impossible to avoid hitting civvies. Other kinds of war crimes that are actually in your control like summary executions or treatment of POWs is another matter, but as far as collateral damage goes, the only moral question is who has the better cause, which in this case is Assad.

Chemical weapons are effective at winning battles. They can easily distrust and destroy enemy troop formations. Allowing your soldiers to quickly encircle them and win an easy victory. Which is better than doing a long, protracted battle which would lead to much more casualties on both sides. By speeding up battles and flushing enemy troops out of strategic positions Chemical Weapons save lives. All I’m saying is that if I were an officer I would have no problems ripping up the Geneva Accords and using them, if it means a speeder victory where my troops take less casualties.

you don't understand socialism. the idea of classlessness doesn't fit in your peanut. A system where power is inherited by the next member of the family line (a blood caste system) isn't socialism & yes it has class in it. The Jong Family is the highest ruling class in that state, if you used Marxist methods the ones in Das Kapital to analyse systems you would realize why Marx pointed at the Paris Commune as an example of something that could transition into Socialism & nothing else.

North Korea already concluded. It already set it's burocracy, it's heriarchy. It's blood-line passed. In every system all you have to do to see what it is, is simple. Just see the last names of the ones in power thats how you recognize how "democratic" really is.

Now Rojava isn't Socialism either PissPigGrandad has said that it rensembles Stalinism more but meh that can't be true, I can tell it's a military heriarchy for sure but the difference between Rojava & NK is big their revolution hasn't concluded & it's a way more progressive modernized revolution. NK got stuck in the past, it's traditional, more importantly not socialism & it's not transitioning to socialism either it's over already.

Kim Ju-ae is going to be the next top of the food chain bourgeoisie in the North Korean society. I don't even need to do deep analysis to come to this obvious conclusion… The peasant farmer can't do much. He works to maintain the status quo of these people after all…

The story goes that the NDF entered SDF territory policed by Asayish (DNFS police force, primarily Kurdish) and started checking ID's and trying to recruit people. Asayish confronted the NDF members and shots rang out and the confrontation got violent. 11 NDF were and 7 Asayish were killed in the violence. Pro-regime forces claimed it was an ambush but the video shows the Asayish standing unobstructed and guns pointing down. The NDF were behind armoured trucks. There were pictures of the aftermath, NDF bodies in the street and a water truck washing the blood off but I couldn't find it. Unsurprisingly, this didn't turn into a huge deal as Assad knows full well the NDF are dumbasses: a few days the NDF killed 3 Russian MPs near Hama.

Hiring from the military makes sense though since that’s a large body of people qualified to do the kind of work the company does. I don’t approve of or condone this decision on the part of the YPG, but I fail to see how it will compromise their ability to operate independently of the US.

Erdogan is real pissed that the US wouldn't let him have Manbij so he's trying to stir up trouble in Tel Abayd: A leading Arab tribal elder within the Raqqa Civilian Council was killed and our friends "Syrian Khayim" have suddenly reappeared on Twitter after they were eliminated earlier this year…

Constant shelling near Kobani and Tel Abayd. A sniper killed a little girl a few days ago. 2 HXP have been killed and one al-Sandid soldier was injured. The YPG in response blew up a truck with an ATGM.

In response to the shelling, the Hajin offensive was stalled while the US and SDF created joint patrols at the border but the shelling continued until a sorority of fighters flew over t*rk artillery positions yesterday.

Rumors of former al-Qaeda and Idlib jihadists being transferred to t*rkey, like before Euphrates Shield, are unconfirmed but rampant.

Some crazy shit is going on right now but two things are clear: Erdogan can't invade, but he just bought ISIS in Hajin time.

As long as American soldiers, etc. are accompanying the Kurds, the t*rks will not rush in and tear Kurdistan a new asshole. As likely as not, Assad and Putin will allow the Kurds to take all the casualties if the t*rks invade and only provide them with enough support to keep the t*rks from taking that pipeline corridor that both the Americans and the t*rks so desperately want. The Kurds are stuck at Ground Zero of a Great Power conflict.

'We Will Curse Them As Traitors': Syrian Kurds React To U.S. Troop Withdrawal Plan

This week, NPR tried to gain access to a few of the U.S. bases but was told the American troops there are not authorized to comment. Syrian civilians working and living near the bases, though, spoke openly about how they felt — and many say they feel betrayed by Trump's decision.

Hatem Hassan, 37, runs a money exchange shop in Qamishli. He says Trump's decision hits close to home.

"If they will leave, we will curse them as traitors," he says. "The Kurds helped them to destroy ISIS. … I have seven people from my family who were fighting ISIS and who were killed. And they were very young, not even in their 20s."

Haji Haidar, 39, is standing outside his blacksmith shop. Everyone here is angry and scared, he says.

"All the work they did together, and now they are leaving so suddenly," he says. "I don't understand it. People are afraid that they will just sell the country to someone."

> The Kurdistan region of Iraq is at times described by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and outside observers as the “Other Iraq,” that is, a place that enjoys relative stability, security, economic development, political pluralism, and a margin of freedom for civil society. This may be true, but this assessment fails to recognize key parts of the story. The region is dominated by two main parties, the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) led by current president of the region Masoud Barzani and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) led by former president of Iraq Jalal Talabani. It is also dominated by the two ruling families, the Barzanis and Talabanis, that have established what is known as a sultanistic system and have tried over several decades to consolidate their rule.

The reason why the SAA is only in the West of Manbij, where they have been for the last year and a half, is that the US had the North covered. I suspect that this is subject to change, especially with talks of the negotiations to have the SAA move to the Northern border of Rojava

A lot has been going on but basically France, the UAE, Russia, Damascus, the US military, and Saudi Arabia have entered into a de-facto quasi coalition in support of the DFNS. The geopolitics behind this all are numbing but basically:

-Russians move back into base (gas station) in al-Arimah, west Manbij.

-SAA invited back to western Manbij villages.

-U.S. and French troops still patrolling Sajur River and Manbij city.

-U.S. still using observation posts and conducting airstrikes against daesh in the MERV.

-SDC/Moscow talks in session.

-SDF/SAA cooperation is now heavily discussed.

-Turkey threatening to invade still; jihadists reinforcements have arrived in numbers.

Despite all this, not a single U.S. soldier has left the DFNS yet. It'll only get weirder from here, place your bets now.

The Make Rojava Green Again project could always use help. The ecological pillar of the Rojava revolution has always had to take the back seat to radical democracy and feminism because of the precarious political circumstances, but the terrorized landscape of Kurdistan is in desperate need of restoration efforts and sustainable management of natural resources. The Int. Commune published a book about the project a few months ago if you want a primer on the issues they face and their efforts so far to remedy them.

http://hawarnews.com/en/haber/items-to-be-discussed-by-autonomous-administration-with-syrian-regime-h6291.html

The points are:

1.Unity of the Syrian land

2. The system in Syria is a democratic republic, and Autonomous Administration is part of this system.

3. Autonomous Administrations have representatives in parliament in the center of Damascus, through their representatives.

4. Along with the Syrian flag, there should be flags representing Autonomous Administrations.

5. Diplomacy in the areas of Autonomous Administrations does not go contrary to the interests of the Syrian people and constitution.

6. Syrian Democratic Forces are part of the Syrian army, which is responsible for protecting the Syrian border.

7. The Internal Security Forces in the areas of Autonomous Administration operate according to the local councils in a manner that does not contradict with the Syrian constitution.

8. Learning in the mother tongue is the basis of education in the areas of Autonomous Administration, and Arabic is the official language throughout Syria.

9. In Autonomous Administration areas, education in local languages is taught in faculties of history, culture, languages, literature and the like.

10. Distributing the Syrian wealth to the Syrian regions in a fair manner.

What is /rg/'s opinion on the Idlib infighting that happened at the start of this month? Did you guys support HTS or the NLF? Just curious to hear your opinion.

Same as the /sg/ position really. The biggest threat to Syrian unity at this point is t*rkey and the NLF is really just the TFSA of Idlib. As you said; having HTS in control gives the Syrian Gov a justifiable reason to break the ceasefire agreements protecting the Idlib terrorists. If the SAA takes Idlib province then t*rkey and its proxies will be on its last legs in Syria.

Also thanks for stopping by /sg/.

It's uncertain. One one hand Rojava has renamed themselves the 'Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria' to signal their ambitions for integration and federalisation and had cooperated with both Iraq and Syria during the final assault on ISIS in Baghuz Fawqani.

At the moment Rojava has made repetitive and continuous calls to Damascus for dialogue which has gone unanswered or slight but important progress has been made. Regardless, future dialogue is still very much on the table.

Most notably, after the last incident of t*rkish aggression in light of the Americans withdrawing; Russia and the SAA/NDF were allowed to station themselves in SDF controlled areas West of Manbij and still cooperate in Tel Rifat.

Just ctrl+F for 'Damascus' and 'Syrian gov' in this thread if you want further highlights.

So in short; uncertain, slightly uneasy but still quite hopeful.

They not really autonomous to the extent they were in 2016/17. After the PKK (for the most part) and later the Peshmerga withdrew the region has been mostly under Baghdad control with their own loyalist Yezidi militia.

Though YBSh and PKK influence is still strong in the region with clashes last month between Iraq and the YBSh over control in Shingal.

So in short it is a bit unclear.

Misleading and unsourced. Socialist Kurd already has summed up what is wrong with BadMouse's views;

https://twitter.com/kurd_socialist/status/1123018028101320704

Also the issue of the education reforms (which was settled between the two parties in the end, so not much of an ethnic persecution) has also been addressed on this thread;

>>88804

>>88989

In short, BadMouse misrepresents the education reforms and massively over-simplifies the issue. He presents the issue as Kurdish persecution of the Assyrians when this is actually more of inter-Assyrian issue that heavily involves both the Arabs of Damascus and the Kurds of Rojava. His video is unsourced, in that he claims that Kurds and appropriating land and that the dawronoye (left-wing Assyrians) organisations are somehow not Assyrian but secretly Kurdish and Arab.

I might actually reach out to BM directly to ask him for his thoughts on such criticisms or even back some sort of developed response because I have encountered these arguments before and 99% of the time it comes from either pro-Assad or right-wing Assyrians making BS arguments to fit their idea of a Kurdish conspiracy to ethnically cleanse them, hence their dismissal of pro-TEVDEM dawronoye organisations.

There was a time when we had Rojava Generals on /leftypol/ filled with its supporters coupled with an occasional tankie. As time passed and the Kurd grew closer to the US, Rojava supporters came under more criticism, but they still weren't outnumbered. Unfortunately one of those critiques was the Board Owner, who took action against them culminating in bans. This of course sparked huge outrage, with 75% of people being against the ban policy according to a poll. In the debate threads BO said that he/she/xir wants people who don't like the permabans to fuck off among other things which showed everyone that the old /leftypol/ is dead.
