This is as hardcore cyberpunk as it gets.
Target painting via dank memes!
(1) Moderate Rebels (TM) make YouTube video that includes their dispositions.
(2) Russian journalist Ivan Sidorenko who has good SAA contacts sends a geolocation request to the fine gentlemen of /pol/ (a 4chan “forum”).
(3) /pol/ rises up to the task and geolocates the Al Nusra base.
Incidentally, this is not the first time target acquisition has been “crowdsourced.”
One has to admit this was an impressively well coordinated attack that betrays good training, for this region anyway. Well above ISIS quality or for that matter most of the SAA rank and file.
And of course there’s the issue of the tanks as well as the body armor and shiny new helmets. Looks like Turkey has been putting the ceasefire to good use.
Anyhow it increasingly looks like the ceasefire will fully unravel any day now.
