        Here’s a video of Kurdish forces assaulting a building and attempting to get some jihadists to surrender. There’s a lot going on here.

        A few of my observations:
        -nice use of heavy equipment to create breach point
        -guy with a SAW flags the hell out of his team
        -not really securing the EPW and crowding the hell out of him
        -they tried really hard to soften the target before entering
        -the body language as they’re entering the building at the end leads me to think they thought the objective was secured prematurely

        Max and 1SGT, any observations?

          Yeah, there’s a lot going on alright. What a complete and utter cluster fuck. Go Kurds, but other than the NATO equipment this looks like any other Arab army/militia/gang – things seem to start with a decent plan but as soon as things kick off execution turns into a tempest of shit soup.

          Watching that suicide vest go off all I hear is Max:
          “THE POSITION IS NOT CLEAR UNTIL YOU CLEAR IT! THEY ARE ALIVE UNTIL YOU GET THERE!”

            Thanks for the repost Sean. Tango, hahaha, I gotta agree with you there. I wish it had subtitles!

            At least props to them for putting themselves in harm’s way.

              OJT is a steep learning curve.
