British woman Anna Campbell killed fighting with Kurdish militia in Syria

#1
From BBC this morning. Killed by Turkish strike. First UK woman volunteer for Kurds killed, so more on the conversation women in the front line. Seems her motivation was rather left wing would fit into the International Brigade profile? I note the Peelers here are now taking action against those who volunteer for the Kurds, previously seen as on our side and with the good guys against ISIS. Is this change to placate the domestic Muslim population here or because Johny Turk has got involved? Interesting development as there appears to be a lot of support for the Kurds in London Town.

If the former, then it is a fail because the Kurds, too, are overwhelmingly Sunni Muslim. Nor are they our friends. They could more fairly be described as 'less of an enemy'.

Turkey's involvement is right at the bottom of the list of considerations.

I see it more as all? UK volunteers for the Kurds seem to be non Muslim dare, I say native UK people. Those who go and fight for the Alans Snackbar groups are UK Muslim. So need to placate the Muslims who were, previously being lifted on their return to UK. From what I can see the motivation of Brits who go and fight for the Kurds is very varied.

My Bold, I can't see why they're arresting those who fought for the Kurds but taking no action against the hundreds that have returned from fighting for ISIS.

I saw the Guardian dining out on this story and some other entities linked to left wing groups making a big thing about her death.

Don't seem to recall the same sort of eulogies or paying of respect for young troopers, guardsmen or privates from the same sources during the Herrick campaign. If anything, those sources were more on the side of the enemy and the Shyner lawyer types.

A positive ID of the character depicted on the badge she is wearing might give some small indication of her motives for being out there.

It looks suspiciously like Joe Stalin, but could just as easily be a Kurdish warlord, or even a middle eastern cabaret singer.

It's an image of the imprisoned PKK leader Abdullah OCALAN, who has more than a passing resemblance to Uncle Joe. In many more ways than one.

She would have faced questioning and possible charges on terrorist-related offences if she had returned to the UK. It's not a policy change based on 'Muslamic' relations or any such nonsense - just a more stringent application of existing rules.

Oh, and the Guardian Article by that little Trot Owen Jones, made my blood-pressure to rise cartoon style. I have never read so much tosh in my life.

Yep, the LGBTQI Bns of the PKK/YPG - what a load of unmitigated horsesh!t. All part of the western-targeted info ops campaign.

Are those Brits who fight for the Kurds now considered a security risk in the UK then? still think the policy change is political. As previously stated motivation of those who fight for the Kurds seems very varied - watch this one though the left have found themselves a dead heroine, OMG refer myself for re-education, read hero person.

Without a doubt, a British women killed fighting for the PKK/PYD/YPG will be a darling of the Left. However, all British nationals fighting for terrorist organisations are regarded as security risks. As I've mentioned in the past, the motivation and legacy of anyone who joins a mercenary organisation is of potential concern to the UK, and the Met Police (who lead on this), in particular. Without a doubt, there are those who have been motivated by the humanitarian aspects of the conflict(s) in Syria, but most, it seems, are more interested in getting some rounds down and killing people without the pesky requirement (and training burden) of joining HM Forces. Oh, and let's not compare these people with the International Brigade in Spain in the 1930s (as that gay twat Owen Jones does).

The PKK (inexorably linked to the PYD/PKK) is proscribed as a terrorist organisation in the UK (and across Europe) and have their activities routinely disrupted by SO-15 (Met Police).

I congratulate you on your knowledge of Kurdistan Crash. I too have a similar badge along with a few others I bought in Iraqi Kurdistan two years.ago Everyone thinks it is Stalin which doesn't go down with the Poles in the kitchen where I work

I haven't even bothered reading Jones article because his reputation goes before him. He is of course like most of these "Pro Kurdish facebook webmasters like this one International Peshmerga Volunteers - IPV the sort of person who'd shit themselves reading a Boys Own adventure never mind buying a plane ticket to a war zone . Perhaps the worst form of hypocrisy is from the likes of Ross Greer MSP who claims to be supporter of "Kurdish freedom" but who belongs to a party that was very much opposed to the invasion of Iraq. If it was up to Greer and co there' be no Kurds left alive in Iraq

It's very easy to big up the likes of the YPG as "left wing revolutionaries" along the lines of anarchists , communists, Marxists , socialists but Kurdish society is very conservative. Try getting a drink in the region or even worse try talking to a woman and see how far you get.

That said as a Westerner I got a heroes welcome. Strangers would come up and greet me , shake my hand or even salute me despite doing nothing heroic

He added: "I contacted my MP Maria Caulfield as soon as I knew she was in danger from the Turkish bombardment.

"I emailed my MP and said my daughter is in danger, you have to get on to the Foreign Office and get them to put pressure on Turkey to stop."


Riiiiiight

Aaaaaaaaaaaaand we have a winner, saved me googling the spelling too.

All hell broke loose in the Kurdish community in Germany when he was lifted in '99 with protests and even embassies being attacked, as well as the British consulate in Hamburg. It was a CIA-Turkish Op in Nairobi, Kenya so not sure why this happened.

Best bit was when some Kurds took it upon themselves to register their indignation by attempting to storm the Israeli consulate in Berlin getting dead in the process as the Issys don't take well to that sort of sh1t. Good for them.

PKK, not a nice bunch apparently.

I am still amused by that mincing tantrum Owen Jones had and stormed off from a Sky News discussion on a terror attack om a gay club in the US. Owen wanted to make it all about him, the Sky News presenter was having none of it and he flounced when he did not get his way.
