    I just saw a nasty hit from ATGM on M1A1...no aftermath so far, but high chances of penetration.

    I found a lot of Abrams vids are like that, nasty hit, but the aftermath is edited out or not recorded at all.

    This one has oxygen sucked in after hit, very bad for the crew (flashover effect).

    Pretty much a Grozny redux from what I just saw.

    Head to Zerocensorship, check for ISIS videos. 40 minute video, skip to 35:00. Pretty much the exact corralling and kills than in Gronzy. If anything, this only shows what Sheytan said, while there are foreigners, most of the scum "defending" Mosul seems local. I hope Iraq purges them afterwards.

    the only areas that ISIS took in 2014 were areas where the population supported them... or were under peshmarga control (sinjar). They singularly failed to take a single Shia or Pro-Iraqi Sunni village or hamlet let alone city. Similarly in the same vein, not a single "shia majority" unit ever fell or abandoned gear... the only units that did were either loyal to Kurdistan (and following "alternative command" orders) or the sunni arabs recruited by the US into the Iraqi military against the advice of the Iraqis themselves who said they were disloyal but the US said "no, we vetted them, they are loyal, it is you who are sectarian".

    Sadly this very basic fact at the core of the entire conflict in Iraq since 2014 is singularly denied or ignored by almost everyone outside Iraq. I just don't know why...


    Recently as the iraqi army units were taking over new neighbourhoods in mosul... there was a video with a woman who came out of her house and heaped praise on the iraqi army as they passed by.
    Later in the same day the army begun conducting searches in all houses and found a large cache of weapons in her house.

    That's the population of the daesh cities of iraq.

    And in all honesty, if the US once again comes in and says "here's a list of people that you have to take into your army and police to make it less sectarian and more inclusive".... well that will be the first chapter in the next series of daesh.

    After a slow start, the operation inside Mosul progressed much more quickly after the hiatus was ended and second phase started on December 29. All of eastern Mosul now liberated.

    The change in strategy for the second phase made a big difference. They did what should have been from the beginning, created several fronts, with the army pushing in from the north, the federal police and emergency response division pushing in from the south, and the ICTF and army pushing in from the east.

    The US supplying ISIS? This can't be true.

    A US Boeing CH-47 Chinook helicopter landed near the village of Mak’houl in al-Jazeereh region controlled by ISIS terrorists on January 28, according to various pro-Iraqi and pro-Syrian sources.

    Initially, the information appeared in English in the Iranian Fars News Agency which quoted a member of the Iraqi Parliament, Sattar al-Qanem. Then it was spread across various pro-government media outlets and blogs.

    Fars News reports:

    Sattar al-Qanem quoted sources in the Iraqi army intelligence and the country’s popular forces of Hashd al-Sha’abi as saying that an American Chinook helicopter on Saturday landed in al-Jazeereh region near Salahuddin that is controlled by the ISIL terrorists. In the meantime, another American aircraft landed in an ISIL—held region near the village of Mak’houl North of Salahuddin.

    Member of Security Commission of the Iraqi Parliament Hassan Salem said that the US army aircraft was carrying food stuff and arms for the ISIL terrorists in al-Jazeereh region near the village of al-Salam and was on a mission to take some of the ISIL commanders and members away from the region. “We will not keep mum over the landing of US military aircraft in ISIL-held regions,” Salem underlined.

    The agency added, citing Al-Waqt news website, that last October two military helicopters of the US-led coalition delivered number of weapons and military equipment to ISIS members in the Iraqi province of Diyala.

    iraqi air force f16s officially began bombing syria (al bu kamal) last week. the iraqi prime minister announced in an official press conference.

    2 days later the saudi foreign minister al jubair visited baghdad and was rather humble and reconciliatory in his tone. I note that this is the first time in 27 years that a senior saudi politician visits iraq.
