I can’t believe I’m saying this, but there are some Europeans who have it right, guys. After reports indicated that several members of a Dutch motorcycle gang had joined Kurds in Iraq in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq, a public prosecutor in the Netherlands stated that there’s absolutely nothing against them doing so.
“Joining a foreign armed force was previously punishable, now it’s no longer forbidden,” public prosecutor spokesman Wim de Bruin told AFP.
I don’t know too much about biker gangs in the Netherlands, but if they’re anything like the ones here in America, I think ISIS is fucked. Sure, it’s only a few guys, but you know they have to be tougher than the cowardly sons of bitches they’re up against. Furthermore, the gang the individuals in question are members of is called No Surrender. What else do you need to know?
While it is extraordinarily badass that these guys left their country to fight terrorism on their own dime, can you imagine what would happen if members of American biker gangs did the same? For one thing, the vast majority of them are fiercely patriotic. Additionally, many of their members are former military servicemen. Most importantly, they already have plenty of experience dealing with asshole extremists (looking at you, Westboro Baptist Church).
Now, I’m not sure what their tactics are like, but I like to think the bikers are going into combat mounted on their motorcycles with guns blazing, like modern day cavalry. Damn, that’d be awesome.
