    The ISIL Fight

    I haven't talked much about current military operations lately, but the stuff going on right now deserves some attention.

    "Operation Inherent Resolve" as it is being called, is military action by multiple countries against the terrorist organization known as ISIL, ISIS, or IS depending on who you are.  The US President says ISIL, so that's good enough for me.

    Let's start with names.  An operation has to have a name.  Inherent Resolve is kind of dumb in my opinion, but at least we now have something to call it.  Moving on to ISIL, the group has renamed itself several times.  I was once told the US recognizes it as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant rather than Islamic State of Iraq and Syria because it sounds less offensive to Syria.

    Oh yeah, we're worried about offending Syria, the government of which has killed about 200,000 of its own people, far more than ISIL.  But we need Syria's cooperation to fly into their airspace and not give us a hard time.

    But back to ISIL.  Other terrorist groups such as Al-Qaida had always focused on controlling populations.  ISIL is somewhat different in the fact that they operated with the goal of controlling territory.  By capturing oil resources, banks, and other valuables, they were able to fund their rapid expansion.  Barely anyone had ever heard of ISIL a year ago, but now they're about the most threatening terrorist group there is.

    So what is being done?  A number of countries are launching air strikes.  The all-air plan isn't new, for example it happened during Operation Allied Force in the '90s in Kosovo.  There are a few pros and cons.  Having no ground troops (Competent ground troops.  The Iraqi Army barely exists as a military.) to take advantage of the air strikes means they have less effect than normal.  However, not putting troops on the ground helps keep our soldiers out of danger and reduces the things ISIL can use for propaganda.

    The coalition to fight ISIL is composed of pretty much all the countries in the region as well as a significant fraction of NATO.  Of course we're reluctant to share info with people like Syria and Iran, but they are fighting ISIL.  Saudi Arabia is heavily invested, as is the UAE, Qatar, and a few others.  From outside the Middle East, we have the US, UK, Australia, Belgium, Denmark, France, and Netherlands doing airstrikes.  Canada was already on the way, but since this terrorist shooting near their Parliment, they're hurrying up.

    So how's it been going?  I read an article the other day that the first month of airstrikes has killed 500 ISIL fighters.  Wikipedia reports about 1000.  The bombing also took away some of the oil resources that was earning ISIL a reported $1 million per day.

    So ISIL awakened sleeping giants and are getting their asses kicked.  If only it were that simple.  ISIL recruiting is still going strong.  I admit that I don't know much about the programs countries are working on to curtail that.  The rapid rise of ISIL has been part of the factor in their strong recruitment.  Very savvy social media has been another.  They publish a magazine and regular state-of-the-organization reports!  We need to find a way to make it not cool to join.

    So this is what our military, or at least the Air Force and Navy, are going to be bombing for a while.  The Pentagon has already stated that it could be years.  But doing something is better than doing nothing, I guess.

    So far, the US and UK are the only countries interveneing in both Iraq and Syria.  Most other western countries are only going into Iraq.  Most middle eastern countries are only going into Syria.

    Sidebar: for you hardware nerds, here's some of the country contribution so far

    US Air Force: AC-130, F-15E, F-16, B-1, dones, and the combat debut of the F-22

    US Navy: carrier strike group with Hornets and Super Hornets, plus ships to launch missiles

    US Marines: Harriers

    UK: GR-4 Tornados

    Australia: Super Hornets

    Canada: Hornets

    France: Rafale

    Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark: F-16

The local crime syndicate sees Miller's lack of ID as an advantage.  Before too long, our poor former human is eyeball-deep in the scum of Canterlot.  Forget going home - the challenge is trying to stay one step ahead of police, criminals, and a pair of persistent mares.

Wheeeeeeeeeee!

#2 · 101w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

EDIT:read it any ways

#3 · 101w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

VINYL SCRATCH IS IN THIS OHMYGAWD.

Also, you misspelled 'Advantage' in the description.

#4 · 101w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>1640789 That's embarassing.  Fixed.

#5 · 101w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

HEY THERE

I think this is the first totallynotabrony fic I've commented on.

And I didn't get first. :fluttershbad:

Oh well. :rainbowkiss:

THAT SAID

Dis story, me likey.

It makes me want to fall back into a field of poppies.

#6 · 101w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>1640819 Thanks, although I hope those aren't opium poppies.

So have you just been hanging out on the front page all day?  I've seen you around.

#7 · 101w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>1640852 I'll have to go and check "Journal", but I'm fairly certain those are opium poppies, because Kurt Cobain was a heroin addict.

I'd fall back into a field of normal(if there are any) poppies for this fic, though. :rainbowkiss:

But yeah, I've been doing that for a week or so now. It does wonders for me, I've gotten like 30 watches from it.

#9 · 101w, 4d ago · 1 · · Chapter 1 ·

I had a single question. It was a very important one. “Does the word ‘MasterCard’ mean anything to you?”

She frowned. “I think he works at the ID office.”

Ha, I loved this part.

Also, he refers to the winged ponies as pegasi before he learns that that is what they're called. How does he know?

#11 · 101w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>1640897 Well, what else do you call an equine with wings?

#12 · 101w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Pretty good first chapter. cant wait to see if Pinkie will throw a party for Miller. Keep up the good work

#14 · 101w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

hey dude. Miller is totally like my last name name. :pinkiehappy:

#15 · 101w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

What's this? Human to Pony done right?! It's a Christmas Hannakuah Winter-Solstice Hearths' Warming miracle!

>>1640897

The idea of referring to a horse with wings as a ‘Pegasus’ dates back to the Greeks, and it remains prominent to this day. Our culture has molded us to the point where ‘horse with wings’ is associated with the name ‘Pegasus'. Or at least, that's what my 7th grade history teacher said. Poor guy had to quit when his wife got the better paying job.

Interesting.  I will have to see where this goes.

#17 · 101w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

Former Human... now I think I have to go back and read the before story. I like it. I've been wondering if I should do something like this eventually. I'll be looking for more.

#18 · 101w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Say ... it's Miller Time! /Linkara

#20 · 101w, 4d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

69 hours hey? not sure if didn't know or wanted to put THAT.... and knowing the dreams series.... I think it would be the latter.....

#21 · 101w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

I am enjoying the story so far but I have to ask why in the picture his wings are so far back? Its kinda funny to look at

#22 · 101w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Not bad, looking forward to more :pinkiehappy:

#23 · 101w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Haven't read yet. Hopefully will later.

#24 · 101w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

*Grins* Looks to be interesting so far, I like how the character is handling the adjustment, it feels very ntural and tells a lot about him without being overly verbose. (Unlike me :derpytongue2:)

#25 · 101w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

>>1642491

Agreed to both

#26 · 101w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

Only you can get featured for over a day and not have over a thousand views. :rainbowkiss:

#27 · 101w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

oh... interesting...

#28 · 101w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

This will be interesting:ajsmug: and I am thinking Vinyl Scratch will be the "persistent mare":trollestia:

#29 · 101w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 1 ·

I would told that somepony would find me when the first payment came due.

I think you mean I was told but anyways... the main thing that really stood out to me was that Miller knew where he was, Equestira, despite never having heard of it before and there wasn't a reference to tell us how he figured out where he was. Seeing as he figured out that he was in Canterlot from the paper work I'd say that's probably the most logical place for him to realize where he is.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to reading this tale. The description sounded pretty good to me and from reading this chapter I'd say it holds some promise. :twilightsmile:

#30 · 101w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

I, uh... yeah, cool... I totally didn't need sleep... thanks...

#31 · 101w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

>>1647384 The nurse said, I see you aren’t carrying your Equestria-issued ID that tells us for sure which pony you are.

#32 · 101w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

'Cause this is Miller!

Miller's night!

#33 · 101w, 3d ago · · · Chapter 2 ·

I wasn't too sure about this, but skimming it seemed encouraging.  I've now faved for the purpose of receiving updates.  I look forward to seeing how it fleshes out!

#39 · 101w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·

>>1656527

He is still kind of looking at a certain photo time to time so I guess it's a bit early for a romance tag, no?

#40 · 101w, 2d ago · · · Chapter 3 ·
