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.
Absolutely, hence my reference to the complete nonsense of the so-called Right On LBGTQI+ policies. Kurds are fiercely conservative; it's no coincidence that more Turkish Kurds vote for the pro-Islamist AKP (Erdoğan's party), rather than the pro-Kurdish but liberal HDP. The related PKK (Kurdish Workers' Party) are a murderous Marxist organisation who drew their strength from the Soviet Union in the mid-1980s...and still maintain an 'Embassy' in Moscow. Since 1984, they have killed about 40,000 people in Turkey

"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."
hahahahhahahahahahahahahaha.....................I haven't laughed so much, for such a while. I would love to be in the room when our chap in Ankara, Sir Dominick Chilcott KCMG tells the MFA to stop shelling Afrin, to save a rather silly woman siding with people they regard as their sworn enemies.
 
A British woman has been killed fighting alongside Kurdish armed forces in northern Syria.

A true hero in my eyes (sobs)...

Anna Campbell was volunteering with the Kurdish Women's Protection Units (YPJ) - the all-female brigade of the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) - in the besieged city of Afrin when she died on Thursday

It is feared she was killed by a Turkish airstrike.

The 26-year-old from Lewes in East Sussex is the first British woman to have been killed in Syria fighting with the Kurds.

Seven other Britons have died in the country fighting alongside Kurdish groups.

Mark Campbell, co-chairman of the Kurdistan solidarity campaign, described Ms Campbell, who is no relation to him, as an "inspiration" and a "hero".

"Anna is a woman who seemed to have more humanity in her little finger than the whole of the international community," he said.

"I did not know her but I met with her father this morning. I have the utmost respect and condolences for her family."

When will this stupidity end though seriously?

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).
BBC mid day news reported 'she died fighting for the West's allies' or words to that effect. Entire item seemed anti-Turk to me. Question now is has her body been recovered and if returned to UK watch this space for a funeral. Hearing about her motivation I feel she would have fitted into the International Brigade profile. Legislation on this the, Foreign Enlistment Act 1870 has it appears only been used once in 1870. Amended but not enforced for the Spanish Civil War, as a legal technacality enlistment in french or Spanish Foreigh Legion could be an ofence.

I'd prefer to see the idiots tried for war crimes fighting an illegal war
 
And the original posting was more sensibly placed in a forum other than CA, which allows comment to be made without having to navigate impenetrable and obsessive restrictions.

I can guarantee that the vast majority of the people attending her funeral in Britain will be neither Kurds or anyone who has any military experience of any kind . I remember when Jac Holmes was brought back from Rojava half the people who turned up had never met Jac and just wanted to attend because it gave them some type of credibility to post on Facebook

Posters here know that I spent a number of years in Turkey and I know the country well. I work on related issues elsewhere now.
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
My God. A 21 year old trying to sort out Syria and the Kurds.
