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