    I wonder if my nude pics were posted without authorization if the FBI would “address” the violation?

    Maybe those were the white flags flying on the Brooklyn Bridge that were unexplained–it was a test.

    I too heard the laughter, Monk. It was NATO who without the U.S. was unable to take on Gaddafi in Libya, and they are going to challenge Russia! But, even so it is good to hear NATO talk like it was actually meaningful.

    It is too early for me to make a conclusion about the authors. Would not surprise me that they are Islamists, but neither would it surprise me that they are anti-Muslims. We have seen this tactics with black trying to inflame blacks against whites.

    “Additionally, roughly one in six people in France have a positive view of the Islamic State terrorist group….” I think it is a fair assumption that they are almost entirely Muslims. While that is significant from one perspective, the fact remains that almost 20% of the French support Daash / IS which is truly a frightening statistic for the future of a non-Islamic France. Hope France and other European countries wake up soon; otherwise they will become part of the caliphate!

    An idiot who should not have been a deputy USM and who just ended whatever career he once had. For a long time U.S. marshals did not get a lot of respect and were near the bottom of federal law enforcement in professionalism, but in recent decades that has really changed as the U.S. Marshals Service became professional and respected. This guy is an exception, not the only one but still an exception, and the USMS should not be judged by his actions.

    Choudary is unapologetic and generally honest in saying what he actually believes, something we do not always get from Muslims. It is wonder he did not say to Hannity and the others, “the truth, you cannot handle the truth but here it is, at least according to an Islamist.”

    Judea, thanks for the explanation. Makes more sense now.

    rt, not so sure. I had many addicted parolees on my caseload over 20 years. In some cases they would have younger siblings, and I thought that surely after seeing their older brothers go to jail time after time for crimes such as burglary and robbery, mostly related to their addictions, that the siblings would never experiment with drugs. I was wrong. Time after time they did. Somewhat extraordinarily, I once had at the sametime a grandmother, her mother, and the granddaughter all on parole! I think it is the lifestyle that draws them in. While we might see it as negative, they do not. Similar to why people join criminal gangs.

    Rational people ask why irrational people choose to use drugs that obviously are known to be very harmful / dangerous. Once someone is addicted, that is a different story. Never understood why people knowing what a drug does on the negative side would ever take the risk in experimenting with that drug. I worked with many addicts over a 20 year career as a street CA state parole agent and federal probation and parole officer, and never understood the thinking. Maybe you have to have an irrational mind to understand!

    Jinxe, I saw one estimate that Daash got 6300 new recruits in July alone. That is probably less than deserted the Iraqi army in July.

    barber, I don’t blame Israel for the actions of Muslims. I question where was the protection of the Christians by Israel, and if protection was too late, holding the Muslims responsible if they have not.

  • [1] August 31, 2014 at 11:09am

    “Thirty-two peacekeepers were rescued after militants surrounded their camp, trapping them for two days…” The article does not say who “rescued” them. A significant fact to me. The info may be in the video, but it will not play.

    Time and again we are told by bureaucrats and pols that there just are no places where budgets can be cut any more, that they are bare bones, that widows and children will starve if the budgets are cut. And then time and again we learn of these totally moronic expenditures which the bureaucrats and pols defend as vital!

  • [19] August 31, 2014 at 10:59am

    Am I missing something here. We are talking about Israel? The Islamists can carry out attacks on a Christian church in Israel, and get away with it? I understand that Jerusalem has some special status, but it is still under the jurisdiction of Israel, isn’t it?

    What, ****** turned to asterisks! In case that happens here, I spelled the word preceding Turkomen in the article just as in the article with two ii’s, yet it was obviously deemed inappropriate by some software program. Get real, Blaze!

  • August 31, 2014 at 10:50am

    Good for the ****** Turkomen for staying and fighting. That is what is need to help defeat this Nazi horde of Islamists. The Iraqis could learn from them. If all of the mid East countries that are affected and will be affect by Daash fought, then there would not even be any need for the U.S. to think about putting in combat troops. All the combat troops that are needed are already in place! We and Europe can help provide air support. I say “help” with air support as many of the mid East countries also have air forces that should be used for more than prestige of having an air force.

    Snowleopard, that would be a reasonable conclusion. Just hoping the the Iraqis are beginning to get it together as we sure invested a lot of lives and money thinking they would actually operate as a national army.

  • [1] August 30, 2014 at 5:35pm

    “…airstrikes were in support of operations conducted by Iraqi security forces.”

    I wonder if Iraqi security forces means the Kurds or the Kurds & Iraqis combined or,,,? I hope the Iraqi forces are operating effectively in northern Iraq as they sure fled from there in record time, leaving the Kurds to do the Iraqi national army duties.

    Don’t worry, be happy. We have air tight borders–more secure than anytime in history say the dims (aka dems), and we have strategy for dealing with Daash / IS. Right? So just relax, we are in good hands!
