Mesopotamia has unpredictable flood cycles prone to causing famines, demanding that the cultures there produce hard men.
indo europeans had tranny priestly castes while orientals introduced the execution of homosexuals into various eastern IE cultures
They were pretty effeminate. Ever since the chaldeans and medes conquered them in 650 BC they never had independence and today kurds have far more recognition in upper mesopotamia than them
They were literally northern Akkadians.
The Assyrians crashed the Ottomans in WW1 aside from the genocide and survived the shitstorm that is that region's history.
>aside from the genocide
>replying to his own thread
>Assyrians crashed the Ottomans
If being ruled by ottomans for 400 years and getting genocided means crushing them then yes
to his own thread
The Ottomans lost every single battle against an organized Assyrian force, not a single one did they won. The Assyrians were renowned by the British for being great fighters because of that, especially when compared to their neighbors. keep coping ahmet.
Christians identifying as Assyrian are unrelated to real Assyrians.
50% IE scandinavians and scythians paled in comparison so no, IE blood makes you less warlike
warlike /= being a prick
assyrians weren't just warlike, they were like Chaos space marines or something
Everyone was a prick back then. Quit falling for the academia koolaid.
Noooo but my heckin assyrians are depicted executing people with sharp blades
>ASSYRIANS DINDU NUFFIN BECAUSE UHHH!!! IRANIANS!
What a schizophrenic post. It's a fucking Wikipedia link, and it also says in it that it's not real.
>it also says in it that it’s not real
Where does it say that? I just checked. It doesn’t say that it isn’t real anywhere.
Anyway, that’s just one atrocity.
Here’s King Darius of Achaemenid Persia, from the Behistun Inscription:
Column 1, Line 32:
> King Darius says: Thereupon that Phraortes fled thence with a few horseman to a district in Media called Rhagae. Then I sent an army in pursuit. Phraortes was taken and brought unto me. I cut off his nose, his ears, and his tongue, and I put out one eye, and he was kept in fetters at my palace entrance, and all the people beheld him. Then did I crucify him in Ecbatana; and the men who were his foremost followers, those at Ecbatana within the fortress, I flayed and hung out their hides, stuffed with straw.
The difference is what you gave is one unreliable instance from a Grecoroman propagandist. The Assyrian bragged and recorded in stone how totally horrific they were. To innocent civilians who had just happened to be on the wrong side. That's the difference between the Persians and Assyrians. Yeah, they Persian would fuck you up if you were a traitor, or a Roman they really didn't like. But being cruel wasn't their whole personality. The whole idea with the Assyrians was that they were so deliberately horrible that people would surrender immediately rather than risk fighting them. That's why they were eventually destroyed, everyone hated them so much they wiped their capital off the map.
Bragging and recording in stone is exactly what King Darius did here
That was just line 32. Here’s line 33:
> by the grace of Ahuramazda my army utterly defeated that rebel host, and they seized Tritantaechmes and brought him unto me. Afterwards I cut off both his nose and ears, and put out one eye, he was kept bound at my palace entrance, all the people saw him. Afterwards I crucified him in Arbela.
This is identical to the type of atrocious brutalities Assyrians had committed. And it’s simply because that’s how all society operated back then.
>That's why they were eventually destroyed, everyone hated them so much they wiped their capital off the map.
They weren't totally destroyed. The last neo-Babylonian emperors were Assyrian in origin.
>The last neo-Babylonian emperors were Assyrian in origin.
weren't they a group who invaded in the bronze age collapse?
That's just a dynasty who got assfucked by Assyrians, Elamites and the Akkadians of Babylon themselves later.
Because they were black, and the modern West Asian inhabitants in Mesopotamia are nothing more than imposters.
The thread has already descended into stupidity and any post below is spam. But there is the real answer.
Assyria was closer to Europe and had access to iron.
Because it was the Bronze Age, and everything depended on bronze, the countries closer to where it was mined were more successful. The country with more iron wins every war. Every battle is won by the side with more cavalry, artillery or pikes.
This is all obvious, the Assyrians won wars because they were closer to the resources. His is of course a retard board and will ignore.
you know... you've kind of got a point, but you're also badly oversimplifying things
You're literally talking to the GDP=Tourism homosexual.
Even more than that the Assyrians built the first standing army in history. When you are surrounded by other smaller regional powers that have drafted armies, that alone compells yu into war with them in order to both keep the army and take the others resources. It happened to Rome as well.
>Assyria was closer to Europe
No, please look at the pic. Red is the heart land of Assyrie.
>had access to iron.
The first Assyria Empire was a bronze age civ. The Middle Assyria Empire was founded in the bronze age.
You have no idea what you are talking about.
What’s the pattern?
I assume she's replying to something about modern hunters killing lions.
Assyrians have nothing to do with Syrians, quite literally nothing aside from the name. Eastern Syria alongside the Euphrates is part of their natural homeland, like other Mesopotamians.
Syrians are Levantines and descendants of Arameans and Phoenicians, who weren't on best terms with Assyrians themselves.
>Assyrians have nothing to do with Syrians
Neither do modern "Assyrians" with ancient Assyrians.
modern assyrians are literally armenians
Why don’t they speak Armenian then?
>have own language, culture, traditions, etc...
>LULZ: they're Armenian
who the hell thinks middle easterners are effeminate
Because they literally are
They got 90 % of their history controlled by foreigners and their behavior is feminine too (wearing makeup, being obsessed with clothes etc..)
buck broken by anatolians/byzantines/turks throughout history
*bucked literally every antaolian kingdom at the time
Even Hittites raped upper Mesopotamia
>same people who were driven to extinction by Assyrians
Nigga you retarded? Minoans are literally anatolians and they collapsed by sea faring people into 50 states that formed Lydia/Lycia etc, not shitty assyrians
>The Hittite Kingdom thus vanished from historical records, much of the territory being seized by Assyria.
hittitesisters what happened?
>they collapsed by sea faring people
oh so same people who Assyrians were barely effected by.
Assyrians ravaged Anatolia, keep coping.
you were slaves of anatolian peoples for atleast 3000 years until you got genocided, mega tier cope
>wikipedia edited by sargon the larper from sydney
He made those edits in almost all articles and they probably created the “battle” pages against ottomans he is referring to above
>last edit article in 2016
holy cope kek
you make it sound like anyone needs the wiki to know how hard you've been spit roasted, ahmet. cute
> The fall of the Hittite empire (c. 1193 BCE) was sudden and may be attributed to large-scale migrations that included the Sea Peoples. While the heartland of the empire was inundated by Phrygians, some of the Cilician and Syrian dominions retained their Hittite identity
Did you even read them? Lol
it's nothing like the peacocking written by larpers on wikipedia
It's well known they were weakened by the sea people
>some of the Cilician and Syrian dominions retained their Hittite identity for another five centuries, evolving politically into a multitude of small independent principalities and city-states, which were gradually incorporated by Assyria until by 710 BCE the last vestiges of Neo-Hittite political independence had been obliterated.
oh I do
They were in upper mesopotamia. Get a life larper and stop coping hard
I'm not Assyrian btw but I get your desperate need for ad hominem
>driven to extinction
They were BTFO and weakened by aegean sea people bros and later anatolia became lydians, Phrygian etc who invented coins
You can only be the bullied skinnt kid for so long before turning on Pumped Up Kicks and going ballistic on the entire Middle East. Tldr Assyria.
>Assyrians were steppenaggers n shiet.
>Instead of Horsehomosexualry, their main backbone is a huge force of armored infantry and the Ancient World's god-tier siege tactics.
When has any group of people in Mesopotamia been effeminate?
for however long semites have existed
Assyrians are semites retard
Everyone of them
>like other orientals
Because they were of a different breed
HAMMER OF THE JANNIES STRIKE
What is interesting is how Northern Iraq is still the most explosive and violent region of the country, ISIS sprung from this area. While the South is more stable, interested in culture and scholarly activity. Much like the division between Assryia and Babylon to me.
