Hey guys, dont know do you follow syrian conflict, but yesterday campaing for liberation of Mosul does start.
Turkish-kurds(Erbil goverment) coalition from the northeast vs. IS. vs. Iraqi with the capitol in Baghdad from the south.
Gov in Baghdad does not allow turkish forces to operate on Iraqi ground. Meanwhile Iraqi PM Haider Al-Ababi said turkish forces during Mosul Campaing would be treatened like IS and killed.
Australian special forces, US Delta Force on Iraqi side.

This is current sittuation near Mosul. Livemap

The liberation Mosul is very important in a domestic conflict between Erbil gov. backed by turkish forces and the one in Bahgdad allied with US.
We could be witness of a creation of new 'old" country Kurdistan in Iraq. The Kurdistan who is opposed to the Rojava Kurdistan and Kurds in Turkey, so another split and war.

I will update more today, the war is going on.
Have you follow? What You think?

Plenty of announcement ahead of time to the 'enemy' allowing them to entrench and build tunnels, preparing for the offensive. The city isn't completely surrounded, leaving a corridor for escape towards Syria... conveniently.

Russia has announced it will respond militarily if Insurgents cross into Syria from Iraq.

The people of Mosul will suffer the most, the defenders will hide amongst them making it more difficult to root them out.

Another million refugees will add to the current crisis of displaced persons. US and Iraqi collaborators (I mean coalition forces) will be guilty of the same thing Russia is being blamed for in eastern Allepo, bombing civilians. Difference is, In Iraq it will be called collateral damage.

My step-dad was a warrant officer in 5th group Special Forces and was stationed in Mosul for 6 months on- 6 months off for a couple years. I've heard how crazy it can get over there. Looks like it's about to get crazier.

Territory gain like Mosul and wiped out IS from Iraq by turkish-kurds would be big step of spliting the Iraq in a half and give legitimation to gov i Erbil. Raqqa is next step.

It would be hard to bet against the Kurds getting shafted yet again when this is over.

Here's a low yield nuke dropped by an EU plane against the kurds. The EU is protecting ISIS in Mosul and also in part planning to send ISIS towards Syria (Probably Raqqa)
The blast cannot come from a car bomb as it is way too powerful.

All attempts of these terrorists will be thwarted before they get control over any meaningful piece of land.
