    Also, some nice hits on moving targets.

    Footage released by MOD 5 days ago.
    Good hits. Looks like a tanker hit around 1.00 from the amount of heat given off.

    Finally they have to admit it - when almost all sensible people already knew about it.

    US admits anti-ISIS airstrikes killed civilians in Syria, Iraq

    US Central Command (CENTCOM) has confirmed that four airstrikes in Syria and Iraq last year “likely” resulted in five dead and eight injured civilians. However, the official figures fall far short of claims made by independent observers.

    According to CENTCOM, a “preponderance of evidence” suggests that civilian casualties occurred in four separate airstrikes aimed at Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) targets in Iraq and Syria between July 27 and October 15 of last year.

    Man, we were the first to fall germany.

    I am ashamed but at least we were brainwashed for 70+ years, while in your recent history everyone should still remember who the enemy is and how he has treated you and i can't even understand how anyone could even feel any neutrality towards that demonic empire.

    People do remember, at least most of us, however those that got jobs via foreign embassies, that work in various international organisations, or foreign companies... they choose to forget. Also when Serbs get job in Non-governmental organization they would say shit about own grandmother if its required. Result of lack of jobs, small pays and our domestic small companies that use people like slaves.

    Also Serbian students and young ppl often go via "Work and Travel" to the US, and they come back they are literally not same people, they would kill own father to get chance of going back to wash plates in some restaurant in California.

    The UK firing off a couple of Hellfires a week on average.

    A sharp surge in the number of Lockheed Martin AGM-114 missiles deployed from the Royal Air Force’s unmanned air vehicle fleet was seen between 2014 and 2015, marking a rise in the type's use from the drawdown from intervention in Afghanistan, to current operations in Iraq and Syria.

    Only 93 and 94 Hellfires were deployed from the RAF’s General Atomics Aeronautical Systems MQ-9 Reapers in 2013 and 2014, respectively. This was followed by a steep increase, to 258 rounds fired, on operations in 2015.

    The shift represents the lessened role of the Reaper as the UK withdrew from Afghanistan in 2014 to the reliance the RAF has on the UAV to support the coalition intervention against Islamic State militants.

    What the hell is going on with the Danes ?

    Danish court backs decision to revoke woman’s passport for fighting ISIS

    A woman who left Denmark to join anti-ISIS forces in Iraq has lost a court battle over the confiscation of her passport. The 22-year-old, who fought for Western-backed Kurdish militants, has vowed to appeal the decision.

    Copenhagen City Court found no overreach in the police’s decision to revoke Joanna Palani’s passport last October. The court said she had actively taken part in armed conflicts in Syria and Iraq, and had openly expressed her intention to return to the front line.

    Although Palani fought alongside Kurdish Peshmerga forces backed by US-led coalition countries, including Denmark, she came under the ‘foreign fighter’ law aimed at preventing homebred extremists from joining Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL). The law, which came into force on March 1 last year, allows police to seize passports and impose travel bans for a period of one year on Danish citizens who are suspected of joining IS abroad.

    “How can I pose a threat to Denmark and other countries by being a soldier in an official army that Denmark trains and supports directly in the fight against the Islamic State?” Palani wrote on her Facebook page in October.

    Easy now. It's not a bad law and she broke the law. One could argue to what extent YPG are good or bad guys, good enough or bad enough to have your own citizens joining their ranks. She had no legal mandate to be there, despite her government being friendly to the YPG leadership.
