Sad. War Hero. But no doubt, he left whatever brains he had, on the floor of the Hanoi Hilton.

If he'd been elected, we would've degraded Syria, to the point, there is little doubt, ISIS would have it all.

Anyone that voted for him, should take a good hard look at the policies he's advocated, the countries he wanted to invade, and cut their Voter ID Card in half.

One of the problems is that there is plenty of loose money around Saudi Arabia et al to fund any Jihadist militia that springs up. The ISIS army is actually pretty well paid - up to $1500 a month, so everybody's lining up to the trough for that kind of coin.

Oh, wait, they're doing it all to create the Caliphate. Right. Forgot.

That's not to say this little Jihadi clubs don't immediately disappear again, cash in hand. They do. Just like when we arrived in Iraq and Afghanistan with pallet loads of cash.

Oh, BTW, that's not fictional. There was a 90 year old man imprisoned at Guantanamo.

And a 13 year old boy - several, in fact. There were 15 kids ages 13 to 17 imprisoned there.

I'm sure every one of them was a monster.

Anyone raising a teenager would probably agree.

You and John McCain disagree. He thinks Obama was against arming ISIS

Putin has to slaughter Ukrainians before he can slaughter jihadis. He'd have to set up a virtual abattoir to git 'er done.

McCain should just shut his old pie up. Be thankful that dude never became president.

Yup, those Chechnans are the worst. Even the sister of the Boston Bombers just got popped for a bomb threat. Should be line one of the immigration bill. No Chechnans.

and Werner, I don't think the video is a fake.



http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/09/02/why-we-dont-have-a-strategy-yet-makes-good-strategic-sense-against-the-islamic-state/

Last week, while most of that was still going on, the president was asked at a press conference whether he would seek congressional approval to take action against the Islamic State in Syria as well as Iraq. He said yes but it would have to wait until specific plans were fully developed in light of all possible variables: We dont have a strategy yet.

Widely and in some places willfully taken out of context to mean I have no idea what we should do, that quote was the headline everywhere, the talk of the Sunday morning news shows. Of all the many politicians and pundits to castigate Obama for lack of a detailed battle plan, perhaps the most remarkable was Kentuckys Senator Rand Paul, a libertarian deeply suspicious of U.S. military action, someone who opposed punishing Syria for its use of chemical weapons and who has advocated cutting off all foreign aid.

Yup. We need to let the clowns in the ME simmer.

Surviving an ISIS Massacre


ISIS massacred hundreds of Iraqi military recruits in June. Ali Hussein Kadhim survived. This is his improbable story:

That's just plain genocide.

No sane human being can do such a thing.

Not even animals do such a thing.

They are worst than any animal.

The western criminal regimes are responsible for this sh!t.

They are the ones who originally started this sh!t years ago with their greedy destabilization of the regions
for the ultimate gain of the resources to feed their industrialization machines.

Yes these merciless sonsabitches have been doing this sh#t since the dawn. For example:

In the afternoon of Tuesday, 27 Rajab, [August 20] about four o'clock, he came out on horseback with all the Frankish army, knights, footmen, Turcoples, and advanced to the pits at the foot of the hill of Al 'Ayadiyeh, to which place be had already sent on his tents. The Franks, on reaching the middle of the plain that stretches between this hill and that of Keisan, close to which place the sultan's advanced guard had drawn back, ordered all the Musulman prisoners, whose martyrdom God had decreed for this day, to be brought before him. They numbered more than three thousand and were all bound with ropes. The Franks then flung themselves upon them all at once and massacred them with sword and lance in cold blood. Our advanced guard had already told the Sultan of the enemy's movements and he sent it some reinforcements, but only after the massacre. The Musulmans, seeing what was being done to the prisoners, rushed against the Franks and in the combat, which lasted till nightfall, several were slain and wounded on either side. On the morrow morning our people gathered at the spot and found the Musulmans stretched out upon the ground as martyrs for the faith. They even recognised some of the dead, and the sight was a great affliction to them. The enemy had only spared the prisoners of note and such as were strong enough to work.

They had good teachers.

You guys don't get it at all.

You will be all reborn there to suffer the karmic reactions of your present day actions that brought this back to the surface.

Destabilization of the region by the Wests greed for the resources to feed it's mechanized industrialized out of control monster is the present cause.

You are denying that ......

Sorry Dingus, but you better go back a lot further than that... and you know it.

Sure, add another 500 years if you wish. Add a thousand, whatever floats your boat.

Let the President handle it and go about your climbing stuff.

Ahmed Godane, the leader of the Somali militant group Al-Shabaab, was killed in a U.S. military operation, the Pentagon said Friday.
A look inside Al-Shabaab
"The U.S. military undertook operations against Godane on Sept. 1, which led to his death. Removing Godane from the battlefield is a major symbolic and operational loss to Al-Shabaab," said Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby.
On Monday, U.S. military conducted a strike in the African country targeting Godane, who pledged allegiance to al Qaeda. He has headed the Al-Shabaab as it has terrorized East Africa, killing Somali officials, aid workers and others in a spate of suicide bombings. Godane allegedly was behind 2013's deadly siege of a Nairobi, Kenya, shopping mall.

Ah, savagery. Let's Pump Up The Volume! Shall we all rebel yell together to drown out all that ululating over there? That Mujammad invented it is a kiddie cartoon, of course. Jane Goodall, anyone? Even a cursory understanding of who Mujammad actually was reveals that he was a reformer in a largely lawless region who put an end to many savage practices, particularly with regards to women. No, violence is simply what we hominids do.

But once we're beyond such ridiculous proclamations, what is savagery, anyway? Is it a beheading? Does an English ax, samurai sword, or French guillotine count? Is it destroying an entire city with a single bomb? Or an entire city with a fire storm created by many? Is it napalm? Or burying people alive with bulldozers? How about the wiping out of a native population with smallpox and starvation?

'Savage' is a classic way to dehumanize one's perceived enemies, and a well worn one in American history. It's the American equivalent of the Rwandan 'cockroach'. From 'Slopes' to 'Spearchucker', one needn't even cross to the border find a rich vocabulary there. A 'savage' understands only one thing: death. A savage can't be reasoned with. It (it's not really human, after all) has no agenda worth discussing. Savages must be exterminated.

Inconveniently, our 'enemies' are every bit as human as ourselves. Always. And we can be every bit as 'savage' as they are when put to the test. Even when we just push a button and take another sip of our coffee.
