Norwegian Vet Instagramming his Fight with ISIS
A Norwegian Vet who joined the Kurdish Peshmerga to help fight ISIS has been using his Instagram account as his war journal, posting photographs of his fellow fighters, during and after missions, and even some stuff that we probably shouldn't post on here. If you want to check out some of the more violent images, visit his account.
Little is known about the man behind the account labeled “peshmerganor.” He was born in Iraq but at a young age became a Kurdish refugee to Norway. He joined the Norwegian military and fought in Afghanistan. In 2015, he left the military to go join the effort against ISIS, The Daily Caller reports. He was dubbed “Mike” by Norwegian newspapers.
To the rest of Western media, he is “the Badass Viking” who went rogue against ISIS. His videos, pictures and online comments share harrowing events, victories, his love of new guns and the daily grind of being on the front line. His videos and pictures of what he and the Kurdish military are doing to ISIS have attracted over 60 thousand followers on Instagram.
