Three members of a notorious Dutch motorcycle gang called ‘No Surrender’ are now leading a Kurdish squadron in a fight against the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group in Northern Iraq. The gang are frustrated with what they see as a lack of action against ISIS from world governments and have decided to take matters into their own hands.
This isn’t a limp gesture or the misguided actions of a violent gang, though. No Surrender have only sent in members from military backgrounds, primarily to help train Kurdish fighters who are out there fighting ISIS on the ground. Air strikes from Russia, Europe and the US help in the battle, but it’s on the ground where the war will be won or lost.
This is a recent picture taken of a Dutch biker helping out in the fight against terror. This has all the markings of a movie, right?! There are even strange rumors of the Crips and Bloods uniting to fight ISIS too. It’s reassuring to see people taking up arms and helping fight the good fight, isn’t it?
