    Its kind of embarassing that the US hasn't won a single war for like 150 years

    Yeah I know, each side says they've inflicted way wore casualties. Still even at the most favorable claims for Turkey's soldiers they're getting their asses kicked. Vastly superior equipment and they've still lost 50 soldiers in a few weeks during a minor engagement. Like turkey has tanks and american made jets and artillery and theyre still dropping like flies.

    Also the syrian observatory for human rights seems largely unbiased ( aside from bawwing about all the dead civilians) and based on actual on-the-ground reporting. Id take their word over the turks or the ypg

    You're forgetting that the Kurds are armed by the US

    SOHR is quite literally one guy in the UK who gets all his information from news reports from 4 guys in syria who themselves get their info from "activists"

    Yeah, with light arms, not with tanks and jets lol. It's not even the same ballpark. You can talk about manpads all you want but those don't bring down f-16s and artillery shells.
    They've still demonstrated far less bias than any of the major players in syria

    Well ok let me rephrase that. Manpads don't bring down American made fighter jets flown by halfway competent pilots

    This is true but they admit themselves that because of the bias and lies from all sides its impossible to get the true numbers and they kind of work off each number given to them and make it more realistic

    If Syrian S-200s can bring down Israeli F16s then the Kurds Stingers can bring down Turkish F16s

    Yes the stinger only has a range of around 5km but can be anywhere and can be fired at any time

    The S-200 has a range of 300km but is fairly easy to spot plus spy sats keep an eye on such things at all times


    Both have the same speed

    One F16 by RT's own admission. If the Kurds in Afrin get Turkish Jet takedowns it will be the Syrian air defense grid.
    You yourself admited, the coalition did not supply the Syrian Kurds in Afrin who sided more with Russia and Assad. They never made deals with America like those in the Kobane Hasakah and Manbij zones who are coalition partners and mingle with US troops with all the supplies we sent.

    We're looking at a 30 year war at least. Nothing military in the middle east is run with any sense of urgency unless run by Germans.
