Mate, you're reeing about socialism on a niche internet forum at 3am UK local time. You're not on the 'side' of any 'counter revolutionaries' because they don't exist. There is no coming revolution, there is no need for violence. You just like indulging in power fantasies where you get to kill your political enemies; go play Papers Please, it'll calm you down.

EDIT: Hell, everyone in general should calm down and get some perspective. We're shittalking each others pet political baby on an internet forum. It's not exactly serious business and there's no need for threats of violence, or talks of violence. Most of us would get machine gunned in a ditch no matter which sides were engaging in a bit of civil violence, it would be bad no matter what. 293 million lived in the USSR, only one of them got to be Stalin, 90 million in Germany and only one got to be Hitler. Rolling the 'I win' dice during a revolution is a very, very dicey game.
All those foreign adventures of that kind ran out. Is it now Jihadism? But there's still shit going on in Ukraine where volunteers are going in for a shoot out over rightful borders.

Last major one was being a Jihadist which wasn't what was advertised when Daesh was all the rage until they got curbstomped.

The most profitable and possibly stable if someone has the experience is being a mercenary in those PMCs that are still around.

It isn't just ISIL, the ''good Al Kaida'' - Al Nusra, renamed into Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, still relies heavily on foreign fighters and thousands have joined the Turkish adventure in Libya.
SDF (Syrian branch of PKK) also had several hundreds foreign volunteers in their ranks.

Obviously there were volunteers before the media focused on it but for those foreign volunteers where did they come from? Is it more of Saudi Arabia?

More of the son who studied but then felt it was a good time to have an adventure when his parents wanted him to have a stable job?

When you say Turkish adventure are they fighting for or against Turkey?

Volunteers came from entire muslim worldy SA, Morroco and Tunisia having the biggest participation. However Chechen and Uyghur fighters were the most valued.
Those that joined ISIL and Al-Nusra mostly did for religious reasons.

Turkey is supporting GNA faction in Libyan civil war, and recruited thousands of Syrian rebels to travel to Lybia and fight on it's behalf.
