Riot Gear

Posted: August 17, 2014 by veeshir in Exploding things

I’m flipping back and forth between LOTR and the riots in Ferguson.

Commentators keep talking about cops in ‘riot gear’ and what they’re talking about is this

in blue 2

That’s not riot gear, that’s military assault wear.

Cops with M-4s or AR-15s are not useful for subduing riots, they’re for killing people, pure and simple.

This is riot gear

 

riot gear

 

That’s what the cops should be wearing,

The only thing cops with assault rifles or AR-15s can do is threaten or kill.

The protesters know they’re not going to fire automatic weapons into a crowd (whether that’s true or not I’m not so sure), so the ‘threat’ part is not credible or, as we can see, working.

When a bunch of people see guys coming at them with batons behind the plexiglass shields, well, they will know they will get bashed.

That’s a credible threat, unlike the the empty threat of automatic weapons.

It’s even worse if the cops use those assault rifles.

If there’s a bloodbath, well, I can see a whole bunch of cities erupting. That would get a whole bunch of people riled up, people who are against the rioters in general right now.

And that’s the problem with the militarization of police.

Contra Die Hard movies, cops do not often fight mercenaries with rocket launchers, they police American citizens.

They’re not an occupying army, they’re supposed to be peacekeepers.

I get why Minitrue is busily ignoring everything except their slanted, dishonest ‘reports’ on the deal in Ferguson, but why is Foxnews and the righty newspapers ignoring war in Ukraine?

So Ukrainians are saying they blew up a Russian armored column.

Russia denies it.

What nobody, so far as I can tell, is denying is that the Russian “aid” convoy stopped before entering Ukraine.

Supposedly, the ‘aid’ convoy was mostly empty.

The BBC’s Steve Rosenberg, who has been following the convoy, says some of the lorries were opened up for the media on Friday, and the main thing that struck him was how empty many of the vehicles were

 

I’m not sure what the hell is going on.

I figure the aid convoy was mostly empty so it could be ‘attacked by Ukrainian forces’ so Tsar Putin I could then go to the aid of the ‘aid’ convoy.

But if so, why did the armored convoy enter Ukraine, and having entered Ukraine and been destroyed, why is Tsar Putin I denying it?

You’d think that Tsar Putin I would take that as an act of war.

Unless some Russian commander didn’t get the word to stop and got his ass kicked so Tsar Putin I doesn’t want to look weak so therefore, no column was destroyed.

 

From the link below

Officially the Russian Ministry of Defense has denied the convoy exists/crossed – but the evidence is as conclusive as it could be from the tweets/snaps by the Guardian/London Telegraph/Novy Vremya.

 

Weird.

One thing that’s actually making sense in the whole thing is that Ukraine is starting to realize they’re on their own.

And, more remarkably, has been the muted reaction from the West and indeed from the Western media. Some 4-5 weeks ago, the White House PR machine would have been going into overdrive, and warning of new sanctions iterations in the pipeline unless Russia “de-escalated.” Thus far nothing we have seen next to nothing of note….

 

Weird that.

Wait, that’s not weird, that’s been absolutely obvious for a long time now. Obama can’t be assed to do his job and EUnuchs need Russian energy.

 

For Ukraine, that probably means that its fate is now in its own hands – don’t wait for its EU brothers to ride to the rescue, or the US for that matter which is currently focused elsewhere. The EU is divided anyway, and ineffective, and has been subject to “divide and rule” from Russia which has been using its own business leverage, “patronage,” and contacts to full effect over recent months.

 

Yes.

Unless some neighboring, former SSRs are going to get involved.

 

Once again I’m struck at how unlikely it is that I’m rooting for Germany to get all warlike.

It’s a weird old end of civilization.

One thing, this guy is realizing something that’s been obvious for a while now.

It would seem as though Russia is goading/testing the West – to see the Western sanctions response.

 

 

Well duh. There’s a reason I’ve been calling it Sudetenland. That was Herr Hitler testing France and England and finding them wanting.

 

It’s a scary time and we have the worst POTUS to handle it.

The world is blowing up and Obama cannot handle it, America is looking a little blowed up (I’m surprised the riots haven’t spread, I suppose there’s still tomorrow) and Obama wants to handle that.

By attacking me, why do you think his DHS has been preparing to fight the Tea Party?

Interesting times. I only hope we look back and laugh.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not in favor of rioting, but it does appear the police are overreacting.

My problem with militarized police is, as I’ve said before, they’re trained as police, not military.

So my point.

Quoth Police Chief Tom Jackson

The whole picture is being painted a little bit sideways,” said Chief Tom Jackson…

 

That’s who’s out there. We’re doing this in blue,” said Jackson.

A rebuttal.

in blue

Someone’s in blue, but it isn’t the cops.  That guy has his hands up and they’re aiming their assault rifles at him.

I’ve seen pics of that truck with a machine gun on top (not assault rifle, but what looked like a SAW, or Squad Automatic Weapon).

So an armored car and assault troops. That’s not cops, that’s the military. They can argue over who’s paying their salaries, but that’s pretty damn posse incomitatus.

So the International Community broke Libya in order to get EUnuch oil and now Libya wants us to fix it.

Libya’s newly elected parliament asked the United Nations for an “international intervention”

Moar

and voted Wednesday to dismantle the militias responsible for violence raging across the country for weeks.

 

Translation: You Europeans need to dismantle them.

I have to admit, Smirt Diplomacy and Obama’s kinetic adventurism pretty much makes it so we need to fix it.

Sure Ghadeaffeghy was bad, but random acts of jihad is much worse and UN action will be somewhere in between. UN forces are Nigerian and Pakistani, people not really known for professionalism (except in running a sex-slave industry) and would be worse so they’re probably really more looking for EUnuch and US troops.

Great, the Great Peace Prize Winner will probably get us involved in another front of the war on (some) terror…..kinetic action.

I anxiously await Obama telling us this is Bush’ fault.

Posted: August 12, 2014 by veeshir in Exploding things, Obama's Fault

 

 

But if you look at the street, it wasn’t about Rodney King
It’s this fucked-up situation and these fucked-up police
It’s about coming up and staying on top
And screaming 187 on a motherfuckin’ cop

 

Yeah.

Quoting from the Sura Of Armaments, (Update: Fixed spelling of sura)

And Imam Mahmoud raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, “O Allah, bless this Thy hand grenade that with it Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy.” And Allah did grin and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and Jews.

And Allah spake, saying, “First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to six, no more, no less. Six shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be Six.

Must have been a translation error.

 

I’ve seen this a couple places today, but the Outrider is where I thought of the ‘joke’.

Update Below With More Operation Names!!!!!!!!

People are making a big deal about the current non-kinetic actions against ISIS not having a name.

I’ll nominate a name, Operation Look As If I’m Doing Something.

They’ve bombed one artillery piece so far

Two U.S. Navy F/A-18 Hornet strike fighters operating from the carrier USS George HW Bush (CVN-77) have struck an artillery piece operated by Iraq and Syria Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL) terrorists near Irbil in northern Iraq.

Wow! An artillery piece!!!!!!! That’ll show the murderous terrorists busily committing more genocidal actions than the murderous genocidists in Sudan!!!!!!!

Israel, so far as I know, hasn’t named their war, but then, they’re actually doing something.

Just look at the pictures of Gaza, they’re blowing the shit out of all terrorist positions and making it as painful as possible for all in Terrorstan.

They did the same thing in southern Lebanon a few years ago and look how that worked out. Hezbollah has not really bothered Israel too much lately.

What makes me laugh is Hamas demanding that Israel stop the ‘blockade’ as a condition. You know, so they can get more missiles and more concrete to build more terror tunnels.

 

 

I don’t know what Putin’s named his poking Obama with a stick operation, I’d bet it’s Operation Sudetenland. He’s just testing to see what we’ll do and what the EUnuchs will do.

One thing, a week or so ago I noticed that the Kyiv Post had a story about how Russia was pondering blocking air routes over Russia, I didn’t post it because I figured it was just them trying to get the west worked up. Now, I see that Russia is making such a plan public.

Which makes this story kind of scary.

Ukraine’s security chief Valentyn Nalyvaichenko said that Kremlin-backed separatists on July 17 intended to shoot down a Russian passenger plane to give Moscow a pretext for conventionally invading Ukraine.

 

I figure he’s named that Operation I Want A War II

Back when Tsar Putin I wanted to Look Strong, in the late 90s,  a bunch of Moscow apartment buildings were blown up and blamed on Chechnya. This was before they went full Jihadi, they denied they were doing it.

So a resident noticed that someone was doing something suspicious in his building and called the cops. They caught some KGB.. FSB Guys planting a bomb (Ryazan incident), and they said, “It was a test and you passed!!!”, methinks a failing grade would have been a blown up apartment building.

So when someone says Tsar Putin I is considering killing Russians to foment a war, well, I’d take that seriously.

I don’t speak Mandarin, but China fucking with Japan, the Philippines and Vietnam in the South China Sea is probably named, “We Want That Oil-Filled Place“.

I’d hope the Japanese are naming their operation in response, ” Operation Go Fuck Yourselves

Japanese fighter jets shadowed Chinese aircraft patrolling over disputed waters, China’s Ministry of Defense said on Thursday,

 

Although Operation Nanking would be funnier and endier and therefore, apropos.  It might also remind China they don’t want to get the Japanese worked up again.

The world is realizing that America is not going to do shit anywhere except against Americans so they’re all on their own.

I do figure that Obama has a name for the operation of “losing’ all the emails showing their perfidy, It’s “Operation What Are You Gonna Do? Impeach Me?

The revelation that Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services administrator Marilynn Tavenner did not retain her e-mails means that more than 20 witness in the Obama administration to lose or delete e-mails without notifying Congress, according to the top House investigator.

 

It seems obvious to me.

 

Important, Nother Operation Name Update!!!!!!

As I said above, others are noticing they’re on their own.

like Israel and Egypt and KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia V), against revisionist actors, like Iran and its assets. It’s in this context that we should read the current situation. Traditional American allies are effectively teaming up against the Obama administration.

 

I know it’s not on purpose, but he managed to bring the backers of al Quaeda together with Israel.

Against us.

That’s funny and endy.

To The Max!!!!

I heartily approve.

US Suicide Bomber urges fellow Americans to join jihad in Syria.
Then he blew himself up.

The State Department confirmed in May that a U.S. citizen from Florida launched a suicide bombing against Syrian government troops earlier this week. Moner Mohammad Abusalha of South Florida was identified as the alleged suicide bomber in Syria, according to the New York Times. Abusalha was from Ft. Pierce, Florida but traveled to Syria late last year with a group of Americans.

Moner Abusalha had a facebook page.

I have to admit, I’m in favor of jihadis blowing themselves up killing state-sponsors of terrorism.

Since the Syrian civil war changed from Teh Peepul yearning to be free into a jihadi free-for-all, I’ve been happy about them killing each other in horrible ways.

Now to have an American jihadi going to Syria to blow himself and some Syrian gov’t thugs up instead of trying to do that in America? Well, that’s my favorite kind of some.

Awe.

But then, I’m kind of a dick.

The old question, is Obama’s fecklessness maliciousness or incompetence?

Me? I figure on domestic issues it’s maliciousness, in international affairs he’s far too ignorant for it to be anything but incompetence.

 

As if to just disprove my point, this new tack  is maliciousness,

Obama Administration Threatens Israel Over Criticism of Kerry’s Peace Deal

But…that’s not really foreign policy, that’s about being pissed off someone is pointing out his and J Effin Kerry’s incompetent ignorance.

 

Via our second favorite weasels, Zippers, his ain’t new, Global Warmmongers know all about flaming irony.

Thousands gather at Rabin Square to call for return to dialog, but disperse early as Gaza rocket-fire resumes

 

Nice touch.

Well this is new.

As European diplomats prepare to meet on July 29, signs are emerging that the European Union is finally moving towards the consensus needed for tougher measures against Russian President Vladimir Putin to punish his war against Ukraine.

 

Wait, I’d bet that’s old. Wishful thinking is very old. Why do I say that?

Ukraine has, so far, continued to send gas to EU member states through the pipelines that cross its territory.

 

That’s why. What happens when Tsar Putin I raises prices to pay for the sanctions?

Veeshir laughs, that’s what. I’m kind of  a dick though.

Via Paco, an old event in a new light.

people's cube haha

Everything old is new again.

 

This site is new to me.

It’s a pretty cool site that’s sort of artsy-fartsy in a millenial sort of way, so I expected it to be reflexively lefty.

Not new is that I was wrong.

ka-ching border

 

They’re even on the side of civilization against the new barbarians. I did not expect that. As I saw the top of that post I was expecting exactly the opposite reaction.

Also not new? Driving up the hit count via hotassery.

(more…)

What’s going to blow up first? Seriously, things are accelerating out there. I know I’m a doomsayer, but that’s just my learned behavior.

Not much endy today, just a few chucklers as I’m trying not to pay too much attention, I want to be surprised.

So as the EUnuchs are frowning at the Russians over murdering some of them, this

Ukrainian nationalist leader Dmytro Yarosh has been placed on Interpol’s wanted list at the request of Russian authorities. According to the notice, he faces two charges “by the judicial authorities of Russia” for “public incitement to terrorist activities involving the use of mass media” and “public incitement to extremist activities involving the use of mass media.”

 

That guy was in charge of people who kept the previous Ukrainian tsarling from murdering the protestors who were against returning to SSR status so you can pretty much assume the “extremist activities” are “resisting Russian aggression.”

Way to make Putin shake in his jackboots there EUnuchs

 

 

I gotta wonder if the Lebanese will turn against the Party of God over this.

Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said that his party will provide the resistance in Gaza, which is facing a devastating Israeli offensive, with any support it might need.

Recall a few years ago when Israel blew up southern Lebanon over shit like this. Methinks the Lebanese are watching Israel blowing up Gaza and they might be remembering what life is like on the blown up end of an artillery range and the Israelis are obviously in no mood to take any shit from those barbarians.

 

Obama is feckless and useless which is giving all the bad guys a free pass, why shouldn’t the good guys ignore him too?

Speaking of which, Aussies!

Prime Minister Tony Abbott will send troops to eastern Ukraine to protect Australian federal police officers working at the MH17 crash site.

Good for them.

Chinese river turns to blood, I wonder if they skipped the rain of frogs or if the Chinese just ate them?
