    Dauer: 43:34

    Phil Campion, a former SAS soldier and a veteran of just about every major conflict zone in the world, travels to the front line in Syria and Iraq to meet the men and women taking the fight to Islamic State.
    Known as 'Big Phil', he filmed for Sky with both the YPG and Kurdish Peshmerga, observing their war against a well-equipped and motivated enemy.
    He experienced some of the worst battles of his life while embedded with the Kurds and met the all-female fighting units of the YPJ, described as a secret weapon of the war.
    Are those fighting Islamic State properly equipped for battle? And is this a fight they can win? Find out in our special report.

It's sad because I know some guys that have better Arsenal's in their home than the weapons these fighters are supplied with. That small group would need one . 50cal machine gun and sniper rifle, everyone should be equipped with an ar500 or equivalent, a M2 and a couple AA guns and they would be much more equipped than they are now.

Kremlin does "favours" elsewhere but not in favour of its own people. President Vladimir Putin seems intent on causing grievous harm to international peace and stability. Russians have invaded its neighbours Georgia and Ukraine, it supports the murderous regime of Bashar al-Assad, and it is engaged in active information warfare against Western democracies, including meddling in the 2016 United States elections. Russia has done little to counter Daesh (ISIS) but done a great deal to bolster the Assad regime and its allies. Throughout the civil war in Syria, Russia has strengthened its backing for the regimes in Damascus and Teheran, which supporting terrorism, and their ally Hezbollah, an officially designated terrorist group. To create an alternative reality and to spread confusion is the main aim of the Russian state today. Despite the millions of words written on Putin's Russia, the West still fails to truly understand Russia.

The old rifle they are looking at is Russian. Marked 1942 with a Soviet emblem. Not German as one person states. Still quite crazy to see that on the battlefield at this point.

I agree that air strikes can't do everything but those same air strikes practically saved the Yazidi people from complete genocide in Kobane when Obama ordered first air strikes on Syria. So, there's a place for everything.. On the other hand Russian air strikes saved the dictator Assad from complete collapse.. Air strikes are extremely important, especially when conducted by the most powerful air force in history - USAF..

Phil has no crack, or maybe it's all lost in translation. The women out there have bigger balls than the men. Whenever I see anything about them I have so much respect, maybe even love, it feels like it. In the end the only conclusion for the middle east will nukes from the west. The region has never not been at war, and now the west is a target there ca be no other end to all this. Incinerate the entire region, too much suffering, constant suffering through generation now with an eye on bringing it to the west, and they are succeeding. Breeding at 10 times the rate of westerners our grandchildrens futures are uncertain.
