        During they spanish civil war both sides got support from foreign countries (though one side more than the other). So it would be better to say

          Can you name a civil war that didn’t involve foreign support for either side?

          but yeah pretty much, Rif troops swarmed and eliminated Spanish fortifications and outposts one by one which culminated in practically the entire Spanish force in Morocco being BTFO

      the spaniard has been easily the most irrelevant and weak nation in western Europe since 1700. This even more embarassing as they were the first colonial empire.
      Only reason the riffians were subdued in the end was because the French intervened, the spanish even needed foreign help in their own Civil War kek

        The mexicANO señores.

        And riffians won because they betraYed the Spanish army since many riffians were hired by Spain to help in their bases. Since muslims are traitors and have no honour, they robbed the rifles while Spaniards were sleeping and opened fire killing many of them.

        Also the fat bastard of AbdelHakrim who worked for Spain for many years and betrayed as only moors can do.

          Yeah the Riffian bvll won by defeating the spanish and btfo’ing their Brazil tier army with raw cunning and tactics .
          The spanish Mongol tier army on the other hand used chemical weapons extensively AND STILL needed the French to come in and save them.

          Embarassing!

            You know literally nothing about the Alhucemas Campaign if you believe that the French saved the day. The French Navy had a logistical role in the Alhucemas landing. If you had read a single book on the Spanish and French colonial wars of the 20th century you’d know this.

              Manolo don’t be mad you were dumb and didn’t properly vet your native allies. Arminius wasn’t a tratior, and nor were the Riffians here, they were never going to die for the Romans or a Roman Buck Broken dog.
              And I Guess I wasn’t aware that spanish won without French intervention 😉
              The spaniard was just incompetent beast in that period, and that’s okay.

            That is what you are: people with no honour. That is why all moroccoans are hated in every single country in western Europe. From Norway to Italy, from Netherlands to Portugal and mostly by Frsnce and Spain.

            Why dont you try to work to better your country instead of running away like cowards to live on subsidies in Europe? Nobody likes youR people for many reasons.

            And the war was one by Spain in the end which it was what matters. You have had to look for 1 battle out of 1000 that we won over the world, and just because your people lack morals.

              The war was won by the French after they feared a successful Riffian revolt would push the Algerians to revolt as well.
              The spaniard was the little goblin in the back gassing villages for a participation trophy.

                Nope. The decisive battle that won the Riffian war was the Alhucemas landing of 1925, which was planned and executed by the Spanish army. The French navy did play a supporting role in logistics, since the French were orders of magnitude better than the Spanish at logistics, but France didn’t do any fighting. In fact French soldiers didn’t land until the Spanish troops had secured the beach and sent the Riffians on the run. Read any report on the Alhucemas landing. It’s basic military history.

                  the problem is like every brown person you lack some understanding of how diplomatic relations work. Morocco offers a very needed help with islamic terrorism, also the EU is very interested on keeping the scrote king in power as a contention for radical islamism thriving in Morocco, so we have to swallow that crap in exchange of something more important.

      Because that "battle" was actually a betrayal followed by an ambush, like the "battle of Didgori" or the "battle of Gandamak". The Spanish army included a lot of native Riffian auxiliaries – who at Abd el-Krim’s signal turned their guns to their unsuspecting Spanish officers and murdered them. The Spanish troops, finding out that they had been stabbed in the back by their own auxiliaries, started a chaotic retreat and were easy prey for an ambush. More or less the same thing as Teutoburg Forest or Talas, two other famous ‘battles’ that weren’t battles.
