Am I the only one that thinks the Kurds are punching well above their weight?.

They have been, but sadly, rather than fight for it, it appears they've cut some kind of deal with the Iraqi government :/

I've seen a video showing a couple of massacred Peshmergas who attempted to resist the Iraqi incursion, one of them appears to be a high ranking official.

Either way, pay attention to the map and the "connection" between the Iraqi Kurds and the SDF, practically none.

A German soldier poses next to a captured French-made Polish 75 mm field gun (French: Canon de 75 modèle 1897, Polish: 75 mm armata przeciwlotnicza mle 1897) mounted atop of a railroad car at the Kartuzy railroad station, used as an anti-aircraft gun during the German invasion of Poland. Prior to World War I, Kartuzy was known as Karthaus and belonged to Germany, part of the province of West Prussia. Following Germany’s defeat, when the regulations of the Treaty of Versailles became effective in 1920, Karthaus was integrated into the Second Polish Republic and officially renamed Kartuzy. After the German invasion and occupation of Poland in 1939, Germany retook the city and it became German once more, incorporated into the German province of Reichsgau Danzig-West Prussia. At the end of the war in 1945, the city was again returned to Poland. Kartuzy, Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland. September 1939.

Tank 213 from the 2. Kompanie, schwere Panzer Abteilung 503,
passes along the Grand Rue of Bourgtheroulde, the N138, in the
direction of Rouen.The Seine is only seven kilometres away.
Little do the crews realise that they will find no heavy rafts and
no way of crossing. Their efforts to save their Tigers to fight
another day will have been in vain

Pretty sure those are M14 rifles.

Never knew the M14 and the M1 were THAT similar, tbh.




SAA presses on towards the ISIS "Capital" of Mayadin, south of Deir ez-Zor.

Philippine Soldiers inspecting a stash of weapons, two of them are M1 Garands and one is painted black for tacticool reasons.


And yes, the Philippine Army is still battling ISIS-linked Maute group in the city of Marawi. The conflict so far is nothing but a low intensity one, but the fight is still going on and it will go on for a while.
