        Their intelligence services seemed to have pulled their pants up and started to clamp down on jihadis.
        There was CCTV footage a while back of a suspicious guy sitting at a market that was suspected to be a suicide bobber and a bunch of agents rushed him out of nowhere and apprehended him. Turns out he was some mental case with a book in his coat but it’s nice to see ballsy Iraqi guys charge suicide bombers for the greater good. There are other videos out there of cops and soldiers doing similar stuff so I guess they actually did learn some stuff through the shit how that was occupation and the ensuing ISIS civil war.
        Crime in the country is down too, aside from Iranian proxy groups trying to stir shit and the occasional ISIS cell.

        Their current and prior kings were both big into western education and military training. Unlike most Arab leaders, these guys put their resources to good use and bettered themselves for their country. Jordan doesn’t want a repeat of black September or get swept into run oil like all of its neighbors.

        Iran on paper has a pretty big army but they remain to be seen in real combat. Other than that Hezbollah but they're looking like a meme right now.

        Iran’s conscripts aren’t given the same treatment as IRGC grunts like Basij. They’re not just Persians but various ethnicities and religions, most of which aren’t too savvy of the current regime which has held the military in low regard since the revolution. Old equipment galore due to the military has barely modernized outside of parade detail.

        I would unironically nominate Iran. Apart from Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps morons their army looks quite competent(by ME standards). But what elevates them is their nationalistic zeal their neighbors lack. Their tenacity during Iraq-Iran war would put Stalin to shame.

        By the end of the war the country was tired of the conflict and the revolutionary zeal had greatly faded, especially since all the talk of martyrs and Karbala meant little to the families that were losing family members ranging from young boys to Grandpas. When the country stopped fighting the defensive war in the mid 80s and start at pushing into Iraq to take its territory, things started to change.

            People like to downplay this because it doesn’t fit into narratives.
            Unsure how the country would have looked like if the US didn’t invade a second time but years and years of assistance seems to have at least paid off for now.
            Can’t say the same for Afghanistan, but that’s a whole slew of other issues.
            I do wonder what Iraq would have looked like if Saddam stayed in power? Would he live into the 2010s? Would the Arab spring even have occurred? If it did, would the West intervene again like so during the the tremulous time between the gulf war and 2003? Would Iran heavily support the Shia majority?
            Would would Syria be like? Would Iraq’s Ba’ath support the Syrian rebels? How would Israel’s foreign policy be if Saddam stayed in power?
            The Iraq war was such a monumental change in the region, it definitely soured the USA’s legacy but I can’t help but feel that Saddam’s days were numbered given the disdain much of the country had to the regime.

              That’s probably why both nations are reviewing the reason for US troops to stay in the country, although it’s plain to see the US is mainly there to counter Iranian influence and to be of support to US troops in Syria.

              But will this also involve Iraq’s Kurdistan autonomous region and the US partnership there? They’re much more welcoming to a US presence due to the strained relations with Baghdad, Ankara, and Tehran.

    Oman, oddly enough.

    Basically Oman had a gay sultan for a long time (He died a couple years ago), and being a gay sultan he realised that the whole being a Muslim sand person using AKs trying to shoot down jets wasn't really an effective strategy. So, instead he westernised the military and developed strong ties with the UK.

    As a result, the military of Oman has Challenger 2s, Eurofighter Typhoons, F16s, M60s, AUGs, M4s and various other western military equipment. All trained by western military personal and using tactics the The West has developed over the many years they've been blowing up sand people.

      This means absolutely nothing.

      The quality of Arab armies is not defined by the equipment they have but by their motivation and how aligned the soldiers are to the cause they are fighting for.
      The concept of nation state for example is very secondary to how Arabs think and identify (tribal and religious affiliation is much stronger).

      So there are well equipped armies that will fold in one day if having to face actual combat, because they're made of civil servants collecting a paycheck who will inevitably fall back to tribal allegiance if the shit hits the fan.

      Arabs also tend to follow strong men, either martial or religious strength (Ahmed Yassin was strong in this regard, despite being physically weak). They don't respect fat sultans or the kind of academic, puppet Presidents put in place by the west.

      This explains why, in the middle east, non-governmental militias are often stronger than national armies. People fight infinitely harder for their tribe, their faith and their people than for a paycheck.

        True. Arabs are dumbfricks who are quite literally too stupid to fight in modern war, and that's a genetic problem. Add corruption, religious extremism and degeneracy, and you're left with subhuman trash.
        It's true that motivation counts in terms of getting results though, but this doesn't really make them good fighters. Religious extremism simply means they're driven to fight and won't flee, but that doesn't make them competent.

            There is a reason why every war is preceded by huge propaganda campaign to motivate the people and make them think they actually are defending themselves or at least fighting for a good cause.

            Most arabs don’t like being ruled by dictators.
            Sisi is a dictator and he is one of the most hated presidents. The same applies for assad.

        The mobilization was not part of the plan. The original plan was to stay within the sam range so the forces don’t get obliterated by the israeli air forces. It was meant to be a war of attrition as they knew israel can’t sustain a war for a long time and that will force them to negotiate.
        However, sadat came up with the idea of mobilization. His excuse was to decrease the pressure on the Syrian front. Many of his generals, including el Shazly (the general who planned operation bader) opposed sadat and considered it a suicide move. Sadat, however, insisted and proceeded with his plan which ultimately failed.

    If we talking minors then Syria. They have most experience as well as everything they got from Russia.

    UAE just has a bunch of shiny toys and 3 braincells to use them.
    Egypt could possibly be there on par since they are a military junta

    Qatars has experience as they’re mostly mercs led by an Aussie. They’ve done a lot of work with the RSF prior to the Sudanese civil war and used them in Yemen for counter insurgency training.

    Jordan is also considered good.

    Saudis are very much all the gear no idea tier military.

      > As Cypriot forces were trying to negotiate with the hostage-takers at the airport, Egyptian troops launched their own assault without authorization from the Cypriots. The unauthorized raid led to the Egyptians and the Cypriots exchanging gunfire, killing or injuring more than 20 of the Egyptian commandos.

    Arabs may lose tactical wars. But how about considering the political, ideological and propaganda war in the long run?

    >https://twitter.com/Skepwood/status/1750522247524339883

    Because in one hand, Arabs are seemingly excellent at the propaganda war. Which one has to worry that in the long run, Arabs can win the wars through ideology, propaganda and support and help from Leftism.

    Also Israeli propagandists make a "super hero" only to be ratio'd by the majority:

    Do not underestimate Arabs and Leftists in propaganda and ideology wars.

The Arab jihadis and "Global South" forces, are just gonna be a big gapping crater or look like planet Reach after the Covenant glasses it.

                Hey friend. I suggest you "lurk moar" (aka: read more and post less). See, here at PrepHole we have a sort of unspoken style guide for how to format posts. For example, the "greater than" symbol is often used for quoting something another poster said, but you aren't directly quoting anything from that poster. Just giving you some heads up, so you don't look like a "newbie" (just a little joke, we're not really homophobic here haha).

    They wiped out 2 conventional armies and fought at several fronts at the same time. They were expanding at a very fast pace they almost took the entirety of iraq and syria with basic weapons.
    If it wasn’t for their enemies air forces and the involvement of russia and USA they would have won.

      There’s a few groups, although most of them then fall under the KCK umbrella due to a shared interest in ideology.

          Iraqi Kurdistan has always been divided between two major factions. They even had their own little civil war back in the day. Barzani’s clan is backed by Turkey and other nations while his faction’s rival is not. They’re butting heads while trying to maintain peace and stability in the region. KCK’s Iraqi branch is b& but there is the PKK fighting against Turks in the mountains on the border so that’s something :/
          > Formally, the Peshmerga are under the command of the Ministry of Peshmerga Affairs of the Kurdistan Regional Government. In practice, however, the Peshmerga's structure is largely divided and controlled separately by the two Iraqi Kurdish political parties: the Democratic Party of Kurdistan and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan. Though unifying and integrating the Peshmerga has been on the Kurdistan Region's public agenda since 1992, the individual forces remain divided due to factionalism, which has proved to be a major stumbling block.
