Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007

The first American who joined the YPG fight against ISIS

He was the first American (that we know of) but not the last,, in fact there is the Canadian guys one of which formed a group to recruit more Canadians to join YPG. You have will not be paid you have to pay your own air fair go to Erbil then I imagine they do more training etc before deployment. They also have to bring $5,000 dollars but most of all this particular recruiter only requires military experience and all applicants are reviewed before accepted.

The Truth Behind Jordan Matson’s Military Career, The American Fighting ISIS With YPG

He is the American fighting alongside the YPG against ISIS, Jordan Matson, his story has been all over the news for the past couple of weeks. The 28-year-old Racine, Wis., man is recovering in a hospital  in northeastern Syria from a shrapnel wound in his foot, the result of a mortar attack by Islāmic State fighters in Jazaa, along the Iraqi border.

Jordan started making the news several weeks ago, news agencies cited him as being a former Marine, some a former Army reservist. So with all the questions, we decided to set the story straight on what was true and what was not.

From what we have seen Jordan himself has not made any outlandish claims, not sure where some of these agencies got their info that he was a Marine, because he wasn’t. He does say in one interview that he “retired” from the Army, but he didn’t retire. Here are some of the headlines that are going around the internet about Jordan:

he left the Army early for reasons we can’t discuss, this is just to set the record straight  since Main Stream Media likes to publish stories before verifying facts. Once again, this is just to verify Jordan’s military service, as far as we have seen he has not made any claims contrary to his record.

Below is one of the first interviews he did concerning his fighting alongside the YPG:


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.

      Hello Dan you need about 5,000 to join them. They do not pay money for fighters, but you will be feed and housed free with families. The first couple months you would be only in training. Then they take you to front lines that are relatively secure with good field of views and security. So they work you into it. The 5,000 helps pay for your weapons, armored vest, and other relative equipment. IF you are still interested let me know I can out you in contact with someone.
