You Make The Call!

Posted: October 21, 2014 by veeshir in Mideast Madness, Obama's Fault, PEBKAC, Random Crap

So Obama’s been arming ISIS in Syria.

Syrian activists claim militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) seized earlier this week a cache of weapons airdropped by U.S…,,

The cache of weapons included hand grenades, ammunition and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, according to a video uploaded by a media group loyal to ISIS, the agency said.

The video appeared authentic and corresponded to The Associated Press’ reporting of the event.

 

So the choices:

A) The inevitable screw-ups in a war run by Obama, Biden, J Effin Kerry and Chuck, Why Won’t Anybody Take My Calls, Hagel.

or

B) Obama does like to fight both sides of any war.

 

You Make The Call!

 

Via Gateway Pundit

While I prefer to root out, I’ll burrow out and try to make Mojo happy.

 

A sad story about a group dedicated to resistance losing their mojo. Speaking of ISIS and al Nusra (al quaeda) V Hezbollah

For a long time Hezbollah trained its fighters for surprise guerilla warfare and defense in small groups. Its activities in resisting Israel were made legend, and the image of fighters taking part in that resistance was romanticized. This attracted young volunteers and earned the reverence of the masses….

Today, Hezbollah is living the nightmare it once inflicted on the Israeli occupation by using small groups of fighters and swift withdrawals. It is being attacked by small groups, no bigger than two platoons, or 50 members. They kill, wound and plunder as much as they like before withdrawing. Worse than that, they film the insides of positions and the TOW missiles being taken away; something the party was never able to accomplish against its Israeli enemy.

 

Seriously, all they need are that blond nitwit to say, “Leave Hezbollah Alone!!!!”

I’m not a fan of ISIS or al Nusra, but watching Hezbollah get their asses handed to them by jihadi assholes is high-fucking-larious.

Another from Lebanon Now! that made me cringe/laugh.

Also, one has to understand that even though the initial reason for the US airstrikes was to save the Yazidis, the ongoing strikes are now viewed by many as only serving Shiites. For some Sunnis – extremist or not – there is a sense of injustice that when it came to saving Sunnis in Syria, nobody came, but when it was for the Shiites, the West intervened. This is a very strong sentiment that has many convinced that the West has lost its neutrality and chosen the Shiite/Iran camp over the Sunnis in the centuries-long conflict between the two sects. The recent photo-ops at the UN between Western leaders, including Prime Minister Cameron and President Hollande, with Iran’s President Rouhani have only added fuel to the fire.

 

Iran will have the last laugh. For the third time in the past 13 years, the West has unintentionally come to save Tehran – first against the Taliban in 2001, then against Saddam Hussein in 2003 and now against ISIS.

 

Obama does like to be on both sides of any war so I’m sure he’s looking for somewhere to fight for Sunni’s against Shiites. Probably Yemen or Saudi Arabia I’d guess.

Is Turkey Chicken? for not fighting ISIS harder?

Me? I’d bet they’r trying to pretend they’re against them while actually being on ISIS’ side.

 

This should end well.

…Sweden. Because the government decided to offer residence permits to every Syrian who requests one, it’s estimated that by the end of 2014 another 80,000 will have come.

Well, not so much end well as make Denmark and Finland laugh their asses off.

This makes me laugh.

The Swedish Democrats — the extreme-right xenophobic party that has come to be known as a “reformed Nazi group” — were previously alone in regarding immigration as a “problem” for the nation. But since the country’s Sept. 14 elections, they have become the country’s third-largest political force.

 

You can almost hear the confused leftists saying, “Sure they’re still hated cuz of Teh Hatred, but maybe they were right about that whole immigration thing. Well, not so much right as not totally wrong. But diversity is still Da Bomb!”

 

In, The Peepul Are Revolting Sire (We Know, They Smell Too) News, we have Connecticut:

he peculiar case started when Scott Lazurek, a security guard, was arrested in June 2013 for failing to show police his gun permit….

The prosecutor, Assistant State’s Attorney John Barney, said Lazurek was basically arrested for being “stubborn” and giving police a “hard time” — not for a permit violation.

 

 

Get that? He was arrested for not being sufficiently deferential to his betters. So he got his permit back and now the State wants him to know they are not amused so they’re going after him again.

Tar and feathers are the most polite response I can think of.

 

Oooh, this has to really piss off serial-make-a-mistaker Hansen at NASA,

Sea ice surrounding Antarctica reached a new record high extent this year, covering more of the southern oceans than it has since scientists began a long-term satellite record to map sea ice extent in the late 1970s.

Heh.  They’re still trying to fuck that global worming chicken, but you can tell it’s forced. Gaia just does not seem to be influenced by how much they care.

 

Now, I usually try not to be too graphically disgusting, but I have to share this pic of a skidmark in my tighty-whiteys.

skidmark

 

It almost looks human, but it’s commie so…not fully human. More of a subhuman shitstain.

So a metaphor.

Via Babalu Blog, your one-stop-shopping for all things anti-Latin-American-Commie.

I haven’t been ‘tubin much lately, so I did my tour and boy is it ugly out there.

There is one funny part, we have Obama, Biden, Chuck, Please Take My Calls, Hagel and J. Effin Kerry on the the job.

Not so much just funny, but funny and endy. Which is better than just endy.

First, some Unexpected Coincidences.

Obama declares war on ISIS. Isis captures a regiment of Iraqi tanks (Abrams?) on their way to Baghdad.

presence in Abu Ghraib would put Baghdad International Airport within artillery range of the militants.

“We know they have captured substantial numbers of 155 mm howitzers,” …“These have a range of about (20 miles) and if they are able to hold territory in Abu Ghraib then the concern they can shell (the airport)…

 

You realize what that means? We will get to see Josh Earnest say that ISIS is not at the Baghdad Airport as we’re watching ISIS tanks roll through the airport on split-screen.  We need the Koch brothers to offer him a few $million to wear a beret when he does that.

The Lebanese give Obama his grades on Syria.  Unlike Americans, they do not grade Obama on a curve.

By bombing the Al-Nusra Front in addition to ISIS, the US may have driven two terrorist organizations that have been at war with each other for almost a year closer together. According to the Guardian’s Martin Chulov, “[m]any al-Nusra units in northern Syria appeared to have reconciled” with ISIS and leaders from both were now holding war-planning meetings to discuss a rapprochement or strategic merger. Whether one formally takes places, with Ayman al-Zawahiri presiding over the marriage or not, seems more an academic question than an operational concern: already 73 Nusra militants have “defected” to ISIS as a result of the air strikes, proving yet again that nothing nullifies jihadi hermeneutics and the narcissism of their tiny differences faster than Tomahawk missiles.

 

I generally don’t trust the Gruaniad, but since they probably have members of various jihadi groups in their newsrooms, I’ll accept their judgement on stuff like that.

Poor bastards, they picked the wrong POTUS to go for freedom.

So what does this say?

Police officers deny claims that they have colluded with those who used violence against the (Pro-Democracy V) demonstrators.

 

When murderous commie thugs deny something, they’re doing it.

I love the headline on this one.

Insight – Chinese troops play symbolic role in Hong Kong drama over democracy

That’s from roto-reuters, who seem to think the threat of actions by the army of murderous commie dictators is symbolic.  They blather on about how China won’t risk the furious frowning of frumious philosopers in EUnuchstan and then note this.

The Chinese military is housed in 19 urban and rural sites inherited after the British folded up the Union Jack on what had been a major military staging post of the British empire and a vital Cold War-era listening post.The bases, dotted strategically across Hong Kong island, Kowloon and the New Territories, include the old British Tamar headquarters building in Admiralty, now next door to the government’s new offices – and the epicentre of the current demonstrations.

The building was recently refurbished, along with other sites, and is now topped with a red neon star. Most of its offices are thought to be occupied, some for the first time.

A large domed surveillance camera sits perched above a corner over one of the main thoroughfares leading to Hong Kong’s glittering Central financial district.

 

Yeah, symbolic.

Related, as per FrnakJ once said, blood is symbolic of blood. I’m sure the pro-democracy protesters are fully aware of that fact.

I have to wonder if the next two stories are related.

Obama offers help to Philippines.

Filipino troops position themselves near a marine amphibious assault vehicle manned by their US counterparts during a mechanized assault exercise as part of the 2014 Amphibious Landing Exercise (PHIBLEX) at the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) in Zambales on Sunday. Around 1,000 Filipino and 3,000 US marines and sailors will join the annual joint military exercise that will last for 12 days.

Philippines don’t want to act ‘provocative’ toward the expansionist, murderous, commie dictators.

The Philippines has put infrastructure projects on hold in territories in the disputed South China Sea in a bid to ease tensions in the region

 

With Obama on your side you know you’re on your own.

Hell, he declared war on ebola and it ended up in America.  At least the Filipinos are paying attention.

This guy shot down a drone and now they’re wondering if they can charge him with something.

Don’t forget, you were skeet-shooting. You skeet-shoot all the time.

 

So as I end up I’m left with this lesson:

Just stop paying attention and hope that when it all blows up, my part of the world won’t blow up as much.

 

It’s either make a post or let the spammers take over. I can’t delete comments from any posts but my own, DPUD might have let me post here but he’s not fucking stupid.

So some stuff that’s happening.

First, if the 2016 GOP race boils down to Jeb Bush V Mitt Romney, we be boned harder and put away wetter.

 

Oliver Willis saying something stupid.  If I cared enough about him I’d have a macro for that.

He said something about how Muslims are the peaceful ones because Crusades.

I have never understood how people can whine for and allow Muslims to whine about the Crusades and not point and laugh.

The Muslims invaded the Holy Lands so the Christians replied, the Muslims won (the Temple Mount is now a mosque for instance).

So in other words, Muslims started a conflict, won it and now they’re whining about it.

Fuck em.

This is high-larious with a capital ENDY.

So as Obama has been ignoring Christians being hung, beheaded, crucified, tortured, enslaved and chased from their homes by ISIS, who is helping them?

Hezbollah is believed to be arming Christian groups affiliated with the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM) in villages east of Saida under the pretext of thwarting an Islamic State (ISIS) threat i

Fucking Hezbollah is treating Christians better than the US.

Anybody who disputes that things are funny and endy out there should re-read that sentence.

 

Speaking of Hezbollah, they’re showing Jihad Envy.

Comparing Hezbollah to Isis.

As the data show, ISIS is believed to have more fighters than Hezbollah, and to enjoy more abundant finances. This is in part a result of the vast territory it controls – perhaps 10 times as much as Hezbollah does – in which over half a dozen lucrative oil fields are at its disposal.

There’s a chart, it’s interesting.

 

Catalonia independence is chugging along.

The president of Spain’s powerful northeastern region of Catalonia on Saturday formally called an independence referendum,

If that goes through, look for the Basque to do the same.  Spain isn’t quite the stable country it looks at first, Portugal already broke off, now they could lose more. That would be interesting as ‘Spain has a 3-sided civil war.

 

Last but not least, Tsar Putin I is warning EUnuchs on Ukraine.

Alexei Miller, head of Russia’s top natural gas producer Gazprom, has warned of possible disruptions of Russian gas flows to Europe via Ukraine next winter,…

His comments, aired on Saturday by Russian state-owned TV channel Rossiya-24, a day after European Commission-brokered gas talks in Berlin, may indicate Moscow and Kiev are far from completely resolving their differences over conditions for gas supplies to Ukraine.

Tsar Putin I is letting the EUnuchs know that the dust-up with Ukraine is going to affect EUnuchstan so they would be smart to help Imperial Russia in their doings with one of their rebellious provinces.

 

I keep forgetting about China’s war in the South China Sea, here we see Indonesia is getting upset with China.

That makes it Indonesia, Philippines, Japan and Vietnam against China there. Should be interesting.

 

In global worming news, here we have Kate Upton in Antarctica and not an erect nipple to be seen.

Maybe Al Gore was right.

So some Islamic terrorists took over our abandoned embassy in Tripoli but the State Dept says don’t worry.

U.S. Ambassador to Libya Deborah Jones said …

… it appeared the compound was being “safeguarded” and was not “ransacked.”

Be happy.

C’mon, that’s darn funny.Just like Theodoric safeguarded Rome for the emperors in Byzantium.

Western Liberals Agree With Islamic Terrorists!!!!!!! Stop the..wait, that’s not unexpected, this one is sorta funny.

After that, many, myself included, wondered: Should we – Muslim or not – learn the basics of Islam and have a read through the Koran? If one of us ever finds herself in a situation similar to that of Westgate Mall victims, could even a rudimentary knowledge of Islam save us?

As the first commenter said, guns do that too.

ISIS is pivoting back to Syria. Al Nusra is allied with ISIS for now.

he Nusra Front is losing several of its groups to ISIS, which is planning a comeback in the areas it lost in Syria now that its combat axes in Iraq have been stabilized.(emphasis me V) … ISIS will leave other rural areas to their own fate in awaiting Syrian regime forces advances and complete the siege of Aleppo before entering it as yet another conqueror.

 

As for the Turkmens, … operating as Turkish forces on Syrian soil, aided by many Turkmens from Turkey who have joined their ranks. To ISIS, these are renegade enemies much like the Kurds, such as the Northern Storm Brigade, who were pushed by ISIS and FSA factions into the arms of the pro-regime PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party). … ISIS will stop at the boundaries of the areas where the Kurds and Turkmens are deployed, thus paving the way for long wars of attrition.

 

It’s too bad Iraq had to become involved, because Hezbollah and all the other terrorists in the area fighting those even more savage savages is all about teh funny.

It’s also to bad Lebanon got dragged in, but that’s what happens when Hezbollah loses and another set of vicious savages defeats them.

But even that dark cloud has a pretty funny lining. Al Nusra is fighting on ISIS’ side in Syria and they recently went into Lebanon and killed and took captive some Lebanese soldiers, I think there were some Hezbollah in thei grouop.

The Al-Nusra Front has demanded that Lebanese Shiite party Hezbollah withdraw its forces from Syria and cease its support for the Syrian army as a condition for their release.

 

So they’re taking Hezbollah hostage and demanding concessions for their release. You know Hezbollah is saying, “Hey, that’s our schtick!!!!!”

At first I didn’t think this lived up to the headline, but I’ve had to change my mind.

These 23 Luis Gutierrez GIFs Will Restore Your Faith in Humanity

 

But since I have such a low opinion of humanity,  just when I started to have hope the fact that the tool can become powerful does restore my faith in humanity. And the gifs are pretty funny too.

We’ve all seen the vid of Joe Scarboroough saying that Obama saying he had no strategy against ISIS was straight out of Sun Tzu.

 

I’ll stick up for Joe.

if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.”

 

Straight out of Sun Tzu.

Obama has no idea what America is all about on the world stage or which other countries work for good and which actively work for evil so of course he will fail in foreign policy.

And if you think he should be impeached, President Joe Biden. The man who has been wrong on every foreign policy decision in the last 40 years who’s well into active/stupid so we’d go to war with Madagascar and lose.

 

Okay, this isn’t funny, (Warning!!!! Minitrue link) but it is. Because it’s Chicago machine politics writ large and Minitrue will back Obama up.

Cruz accused the White House of floating the idea. “There is one person and one person only talking about shutting down the government, and that is the White House,”

 

He’s going to shut down the gov’t, closing the most painful things for average Americans, and get his Minitrue allies to blame it on the GOP so our fine, free media’s chosen political party will do well in an election.

 

That’s not funny.

But it is.

 

A Victory

Posted: August 27, 2014 by veeshir in It's Science!, PEBKAC, Random Crap, Win!

They finally got to do research on the Kennewick man.

The skull, while clearly old, did not look Native American. …the teeth were cavity-free (signaling a diet low in sugar and starch) and worn down to the roots—a combination characteristic of prehistoric teeth. Chatters then noted something embedded in the hipbone. It proved to be a stone spearpoint, which seemed to clinch that the remains were prehistoric. He sent a bone sample off for carbon dating. The results: It was more than 9,000 years old.

It’s going to be interesting, here’s a link to the book with the results. It’s high dollar so if you do buy it, you should do it from Ace’s or the Puppy Blender (That’s where I saw the link) as they make money off that, we don’t make squat.

For those who don’t know, the Kennewick man is a skeleton at least 9,000 years old and doesn’t look like an American Indian, For some reason, American Indians fought to keep it from being studied. I’m not sure of the real reason, I know the tactics they used to try to keep it from being studied, but I’m not sure why.

I was pretty pissed of that people were trying to fight it being studied. We could study it and then bury it with whatever honors they wanted, but that wasn’t good enough.

 

It also spawned a  bunch of whole conspiracy deals, like that it’s an alien’s skeleton and man is descended from the aliens (The Pak Conspiracy), or one of the conspiracies that is actually pretty plausible. It stated that today’s American Indians didn’t want it publicized that there were people , maybe white people, here before their ancestors.

That could mean they’re just like whitey except their ancestors did it thousands of years ago instead of just a little over a hundred and at least we didn’t eat the people we killed.

In Kyev, Ukraine this guy is a member of a pro-Russian group.

The man, who was not identified by the police, was sent seven cardboard boxes filled with forty hand grenades of different types, six grenade launchers, 35 fuses and nearly 5,000 cartridges of ammunition.

I guess he got these through the gun-show loophole.

Makes me wonder if Tsar Putin I is doing something or if it’s just tome asshole.

The problem with this story is it’s hard to figure out what the hell is going in Yemen.

Thousands of armed Shiite rebels in Yemen strengthened their positions in the capital Sanaa on Wednesday as they pressed their campaign to force the government to resign

It’s so hard to figure out who to root for is because the gov’t  fights al Quaeda, they help al Quaeda. They murder non-violent people, they help non-violent people. It’s just hard to figure out.

Also, sometimes the protesters are terrorists and sometimes they’re just trying to get the gov’t to stop killing them.

Lest we think the border deal is not going on just because the media is busy with riots and murdered journalists,

A group of illegal aliens and their smuggler started a massive grass fire on a ranch in South Texas after being pursued by agents from the U.S. Border Patrol.

Assholes. People whose first act in this country is to break the law (by illegally entering the country) will never respect our laws.

Speaking of the riots, sales of popular gas masks up 434% on Amazon.

Another popular gas mask sold on Amazon, the Israeli Civilian Gas Mask, has rocketed up the sales charts by 250 percent.

Hmmmm. Methinks people are looking at the riots and thinking, “I’m not into rioting, but I don’t like cops shooting tear gas at me”.

One last thing, a photoshop challenge  is going on with this pic of Kim Jon Un,

soylent yello

Would it be racist to caption that, “In North Korea, Soylent Yellow is people.“?

 

Important Update!!!!!!!!!!!!

I always go center mass, but to each his own.
