Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007

Kobani November 21, 2014

FILE – This undated file photo posted on Monday, Nov. 4, 2014 by the Raqqa Media Office of the Islamic State group, a militant extremist group, shows an Islamic state group fighter in Kobani, Syria. For a force that has built its reputation on projecting an aura of momentum and invincibility, the prolonged stalemate in Kobani is a setback for Islamic State militants with potential implications in terms of recruitment and support. Nearly two months after it launched its lightning assault on the small Kurdish town, the group is bogged down with an increasingly entrenched and costly battle in which hundreds of its fighters have been killed and a good deal of its military apparatus destroyed. More than two months into its assault on Kobani, the Islamic State group still pours fighters and resources into trying to take the besieged Kurdish town, but the drive has been blunted. Aided by 270 U.S. airstrikes, the town’s determined Kurdish defenders appear to be gaining momentum, a potentially bruising reversal for the militants who only few weeks ago seemed unstoppable in their march to victory.

I am listening to this audio from November 2, 2014
I am not sure who Tom Ashbrook is but he seems to be looking and finding decent intel. Too many news agencies use stringers (who are notoriously unreliable), normally have some slant, and have learned bad news pays more than good news
Note this is audio from November 2nd when Turkey was blocking aide to the besieged Kobani aka Kobane, aka ayn al Arab. Report that has the Audio  or download it here.

Turkey got a lot of flack in the news across the world for not letting aide into Kobani. It finanly got to the point a few days after the above audio report on kobani, Turkey started to tear gas the people watching on the hill in turkey that over looks the town. A BBS crew had a etear gas canister shot into their vehicle at about 10 feet away as they were leaving the area, actually driving away and they still got tear gased. It smashed through their back window of the SUV. They all had to run out once they realized what was up. and someone had to grab the canister somehow as it was actually starting a fire? Then the Turkish troops. They kicked everyone out of the town in Turkey that is the sister city of Kobani. that went on for another 2 weeks. I think the pressure from Journalists who wanted access to report on Kobani played a big role in bringin public pressure to make the Turks finally allow the Kurdish people to bring some aide 150 men and some weapons and ammunition. It has been almost 2 weeks since then and the  Kurds seem to be doing good and gaining back parts of the city.

But it is still to soon to tell what the final result will be here. While Kobani has  a lot of people backing and routing for them, sadly there is almost no financial, material, men, intelligence – i.e Satellite and stuff the US DOD, CIA, State dept. and every other countries help. Yet we do not see this happening. Cries of the Kurds and all members of the PKK is BS, it is used by majorities to hold down minorities like the kurds. The Southeast corner of Turkey was once part of the greater Kurdish lands. These are historic lands and some may say “there never was a country called Kurdistan!!” I hear that line regurgitated from Islamists, Muslim brotherhood, and wahhabi’s alike.  Tiny people who all think they are better than god and everyone else who does not agree with them must die !!! The minds of the terrorists would appear, to the sane, that they must have small brains unable to grasp anything but medieval nonsense, and small thinking. If you ask me they are a bunch of mental midgets, and fat heads.

For now Kobani continues to be the city that is crying “FREEDOM” louder than any other city or place on earth. For now those of us who wish we could help, shall cry a thousand tears for every drop of Kurdish blood that it takes to defend this City and people from the mob of mindless trolls with their lil black flags and their twisted beliefs.

About Ian Bach

Independent Online Terrorist Hunter I teach people how to hunt down and shut down the Bad guys web sites. I also teach about the various countries and cultures. Like most cases it is a small group of bsd eggs that in this case call themselves Muslims but in actual fact they are more like how KKK call themselves ",True Christisians". But in both cases / groups they preach a perverted and twisted view a religion. In the case of ISIS, all Qaeda, al Nusra, and the rest of the terrorists who claim to be true Muslims most of these groups follow the Wahhabi teachings. They are almost all Sunni and their goal is global domination. Yet they must be very bad at math and history. Since most Muslims prefer a separation of church and state and also mist are against Shari's Law. Esp the twisted and overly exaggerated form of Sharia Law that the Wahhabi and other bad guys use. I have studied terrorism, insurgencies, and the best tried and proven methods that work to fight terrorism. My Blogs have many links and articles that can show you who are the best and most knowledgeable people in the fields or counterinsurgency and counter terrorism. When I find great practitioner's I always listen to them to find out who they learned from and who they respect and admire. Thus I am always learning new stuff from the best and most successful in their fields of knoeledge. I strive to be an open and ethical source of information, I have met many awesome, kind, caring, and loving wonderful people many who I am close friends with now from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran, and many from S.E. Asia which also has a high percent of their populations that are Muslim.We must always strive to be aware people are not any one particular religion via that's what they chose to be, instead most people are a particular religion because that's what their parents and/or county is. I was raised Catholic but because I became Interested in magic ,(illusion - smoke n mirrors) and science which lead me to study many religions, and I would call myself an atheist. Yet sometimes when I lose my keys ZI find myself praying "Hail Marys" and a few "Our Fathers" which most always aides me in finding my keys. My belief is that if I just frantically look around for my krys, good luck it takes me for ever. But by saying these prayers it is like s sort of meditation and my mind becomes more calm, which is why it helps my find my keys.
