The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have seized a major part of Shahada distrcit and a part of Husham Abdulmalik district from ISIS.

Dutch national, why are the SDF so slow? They haven’t had the burden of pausing due to humanitarian ceasefires, no Intel leaked to Isis, don’t have enemies to engage close to the city, have the world’s best airforce, generals and spec ops helping them. Why are the SDF so shit compared to the SAA who obviously had so many more obstacles to overcome in Aleppo, not to mention that it’s about 3 times bigger than Raqqa. Dutch national, why are the SDF / YPG so fucking shit in comparison?


So what? Is this some sort of contest of military dick size? I dont think so, but I´ll try to answere your question. Because they are cautious? Because Daesch is there and cant escape, so why should they be in a hurry? Because you are NOT there, teaching them how to fight at the maximum bravest level they can? Because God, the vatican, Bibi, the ghost of Rasputin or the ghost of Victoria II or Jesus or Allah or someone totaly unnown tell them to do it this shanti (om, shanti om)? Praise your SAA, that´s okay… But remember what good old Mr. Garrison once have said: “But that´s no Problem, Eric. There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.” Netten Abend noch… ;-)


Wow, Justin. SAA wasn’t facing ISIS in Aleppo. And lets not talk about that debacle in Palmyra when they did.

How many fronts do the SDF have? Imagine if the SDF were attacked at 7 different fronts while they were attacking RAQQA! So please, spare me your bullshit!

Im not against the Kurds AT ALL! Im against America, Israel and Saudi Arabia! Who are these nations canon fodder doing their dirty work? The fucking KURDS!!!! FOOLS! They have short memories! It was American Chemical weapons used against them by Saddam who was an ALLY to America in the war against Iran! So if i hang shit on the SDF, im hanging shit on America and Israel!

People who feel sympathy for the SDF are fools! The next proxy war LITERALLY is the Kurds vs the SAA! AND U KNOW THIS! Who’s side u gonna be on then? huh? Russian / iranian backed SAA? Or USA, Israeli, KSA backed SDF?


Every day Putin – Russia allows the US led “Terror Axis” to take over more of Raqqa area for Geopolitical reasons as Putin Russia sees Iran – Iraq – Syria as long term Geopolitical threats.

The importance of Raqqa to Iran – Iraq and Syria should not be underestimated because it is part of the: Iran – Iraq – Syria Land Bridge Iran – Iraq – Syria – Cyprus – EU Oil and Gas Pipeline Route of the proposed New Silk Road through Syria
