Repent Or Die

World’s Richest Terrorists: ISIS Closes In On Bagdhad

Imparts Absolute Shari’a Law In Ninevah

Stole Half A Billion From Mosul Banks

image

The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams (Isis) has imposed a strict set of Sharia laws on the citizens of Nineveh province just days after capturing the provincial capital of Mosul.

In a document circulating on social media attributed to the group, Isis warned tribal leaders and sheikhs not to “work with [the Iraqi] government and be traitors” while proclaiming that women should only go outside if absolutely necessary. 

“For women, dress decently and wear wide clothes. Only go out if needed,” read the document as translated by Al Aan TV reporter Jenan Moussa.

Further rules included bans on drugs, alcohol and cigarettes while public gatherings, the possession of guns and the carrying of flags not of the Islamic state were outlawed.

The document added that Isis wish to destroy all shrines and graves, in reference to Shia shrines in towns such as Samarra where fighting is continuing.

“For those asking who are you? We are soldiers of Islam and took on our responsibility to bring back glory of the Islamic Caliphate.

“Money we took from [the] Safavid government is now public. Only Imam of Muslims can spend it. Anyone who steals [will have their] hands cut,” the document translation read.

Isis have continued their push towards Baghdad, seizing a town only 56 miles (90km) north of the Iraq’s capital, according to reports.

The flashpoint town of Dhuluiyah and the area of Muatassam have been overrun by militants following a three-day offensive the Iraqi government has failed to stop, according to AFP.

The group has become the richest terror force in the world after looting $429m and large amounts of gold bullion from Mosul’s central bank following the city’s capture.

All Muslims in the city have been instructed to attend mosque for the five daily prayers.

It confirms that it seized up to half a billion dollars from the Mosul branch of the Bank of Iraq but states it can be trusted with the funds.

Any one of its members who breach this promise will have their hands cut off.

“No drugs, no alcohol and no cigarettes allowed,” it added.

No public gathering other than those organised by ISIS will be allowed at any stage. No guns will be allowed outside of its ranks.

All tribal leaders and sheikhs in the area have been warned not to co-operate with the state.

In a warning to the police, soldiers and other “kaffr” bodies the choice is to repent or face the ultimate punishment. The group said it will open “special places” for repentance.

Outlining its sectarian bias it declared all shrines, graveyards and monuments will be destroyed.

Finally all women must dress in concealing clothing that preserve decency. Females should only go outside “if necessary”.

The city has been told that it has tried secular experiments with the republic and Baathist regimes as well as the current Iranian-backed “Safavid” government in Baghdad. “Now is time for an Islamic state,” the note signed Imam Abu Bakr El Qurashi said.

The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams (Isis) has become the richest terror group ever after looting 500 billion Iraqi dinars - the equivalent of $429m (£256m) - from Mosul’s central bank, according to the regional governor.

Nineveh governor Atheel al-Nujaifi confirmed Kurdish televison reports that Isis militants had stolen millions from numerous banks across Mosul. A large quantity of gold bullion is also believed to have been stolen.

Following the siege of the country’s second city, the bounty collected by the group has left it richer than al-Qaeda itself and as wealthy as small nations such as Tonga, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands and the Falkland Islands.

The militants freed up to 1,000 inmates from Mosul’s central prison, according to senior police officials. They are also in control of Mosul airport and local television stations.

They also seized considerable amounts of US-supplied military hardware. Photos have already emerged of Isis parading captured Humvees in neighbouring Syria where they are also waging war against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

So now that they have several lifetimes worth of brand new weapons, munitions, vehicles, and probably rations as well, they also have enough gold to buy or bribe their way into anything they might want, plus they have enough Iraqi cash on hand to cause that economy to collapse.

The US State Department issued a statement saying that they were “deeply concerned” about developments there, and how “they stood with the people of Iraq”. Yeah, from 5000 miles away, safe and sound in their comfy beds. Gee, thanks.

Something New Under The Sun

Since Rodger has a picture up today of a lovely vierling, one of those custom made masterpieces from Ferlach, I figured, why not let it be oddball gun day.

So here’s my input, a gun you will never see, and must never ever mention to any mystery writer or crime drama author. If you think journalists have poor firearms knowledge, they come off as experts compared to authors. “pump action machine gun pistols”, “45 Colt Magnums”, “rifle guns”, “automatic revolvers"* and other such horrible excretions are their stock in trade. This one could be one of their “mistakes” brought to life.


The Szecsei Double Bolt Repeater

all it took was a gear, an idea, and 20 years work from master gunsmiths



image

Two barrels, one bolt. And a double magazine. Rock solid, tank strong, lightning fast, heavy as lead. Exactly what you want for hunting the largest and most dangerous African game in the deep bush. When the shooting is done at arm’s length, and you have to stop ten tons of pissed off critter who wants to make toe cheese out of your face, you can’t shoot too many massive bullets fast enough.

image  image

The double rifle is a classic for close range safari hunting of the big and nasty. Built like a double barreled shotgun, either in side-by-side or over-under configuration, a double rifle gives you two shots with two triggers and two lock mechanisms. Pull one, pull the next. Boom boom. That’s as fast as it gets for sporting arms. The problem is, what if two shots aren’t enough? These heavy guns all use the shotgun’s break open action design, so to reload them you’ve got to lower the gun, pull the release lever, bend the gun in half at the hinge, pop the spent cases out, pull two new cartridges from you ammo belt, insert them, close the gun, then get back to shooting. Not exactly speedy. Toe cheese time, or being gored and tossed by a mad thing with spikes on.

Bolt action rifles reload quite quickly. Far more quickly than double rifles. They are also known to be exceedingly strong; more than capable to handle the largest and most powerful big game cartridges.  Nor are they limited to low pressure rimmed cartridges the way double guns are. But compared to a double rifle they are still rather slow firing. And when life or death can be measured in milliseconds, they aren’t fast enough for some.

So why not do both? A geared action with two bolts. One lift of the handle unlocks one bolt clockwise, the other bolt counter-clockwise. One cycle of the action loads two fresh rounds. Two rounds of the most powerful modern cartridges you could want. Boom boom. And then two more after that. Six shots in perhaps half a second if you really have to. And if that isn’t enough, you’re probably trampled flat already.

image

The double barreled bolt action repeater. Exclusively made by Joseph Szecsei. Cost? Well ... you didn’t really need that new bi-turbo Porsche, did you?



* yeah yeah, I know, the Webley Fosbery. Because sooner or later, someone will try anything.

my isp, new router, farage and ukip and may election and thieving romanians

Got a new router from isp, finally got it up and working and far easier than I first thought it would be.  Kinda proves that, “ the only thing we have to fear is ……”
Actually that is not entirely true, but I suppose when FDR first used the phrase it was needed. Anyway very busy and up to ears in things and don’t expect to post too much unless it’s something a bit more off the wall than my usual crime and grime stuff.  Those things never change, only the ppl involved.
For example, another ‘honor’ murder. That’s not news anymore. Guy killed wife because she was becoming too westernised.  Why the hell do they bother living here anyway?  Oh. Right. Maybe he was getting benefits. Don’t know. Doesn’t matter.

This new router has fewer wires and one less plug to stick in the wall, supposed to be faster than older one which was giving good service and no probs at all.  Now I have the joy of buffering on a tablet that I never had before.  Speaking of the buffering.
So spent a whole hour after coming in from yard work which I know I shouldn’t be doing now, anyway, an hour with ISP tech to alter the speed settings or something.

So ,,,, I found a story to share that really as I see things, proves how duplicitous and hypocritical even a fairly conservative paper can be.  Gee, when we can not even trust our own damn side …. ?

There’s a political party here called UKIP, which is UK Independence Party.
It’s leader, Nigel Farage, is a genius and a damn good speaker who puts the rest of these clowns and the EU in the shade.  He makes his critics look like the dumb asses they are.  But there’s a problem.  Everyone is out to get him and whenever the Daily Mail can publish an unflattering photo of him they will.  Or point out his race bias and his immigration phobia and his awful anti Romanian rhetoric, they will. But hang on. That’s how they paint him but that isn’t him.  But they want it to be, because lots of ppl are seriously worried that there’s a chance UKIP could split the conservative vote and hand the country back to the Labour Party.  In other words, even a conservative paper will twist what he says to suit their own agenda. 

A few weeks ago in an interview, when asked a question about his mistake on the numbers of Bulgarians and Romanians who were supposed to flood the borders and apparently may not have, in the numbers he quoted, he said that he would not want to live next door to a Romanian family.  So, was he anti immigrant?  His wife after all is German.  So the usual talking heads all dumped on him, he made no grovelling apology and stated why he wouldn’t and most Brits understood him well.  Oh boy, did they understand.  His critics thought the sky would fall on him, and the Daily Mail, that bastion of conservative thought, joined in the abuse and finger pointing.
UKIP went on to win lots of seats in the Euro elections and his party is now being taken a bit more seriously. All of a sudden politicians both left and right are outdoing each other with promises of utopia.  Suddenly politicians are using words like, we must pay more attention to the people.  Sure. Now that their faces have been rubbed in the dirt a bit. 

I do not know personally, if UKIP will turn out to be a one or two issue thing. I have no idea if they will fold or gain new strength.  But a scary number of voters from both left and right who somehow manage to agree on some basic level, have deserted their parties and joined UKIP.

In reply, the mouthpiece of liberal conservatism has run articles not once but 2wice, by the original founder of UKIP who quit years ago, saying that Farage is a racist,
and again pointing out again that Mr. Farage thinks living next door to Romanians is a bad thing.  As if we can assume that a family of that group will be upstanding and present no problems. We only hear about the bad after all.  Cos they are the ones who make the news.  Where’s the excitement in writing about good people. You know, if it bleeds, it leads. So with that thought in mind, may I present the following story from the Daily Mail.

Caught on CCTV: Moment ‘polite and charming’ Eastern European scammers stole £300 from woman at a cashpoint by pretending she had dropped £5 on the floor

· Wendy Cleasby was conned as she withdrew cash from Santander bank
· The 53-year-old said scammers appeared to be ‘polite and charming’ men
· Duo told her she dropped £5 and stole her £300 when she went to pick it up
· Pair were arrested by police after being identified from CCTV footage
· Both handed a 16-week prison sentence and ordered to pay compensation
By Larisa Brown


BREAK –

Whoa. Hang on.

The DM has changed their headline for the on line version.

Here is what I have from the hard copy version.


MOMENT ROMANIAN CASHPOINT CONMEN STRUCK INSIDE A BANK.

It was a hefty withdrawal, so Wendy Cleasby thought taking her cash out inside the bank was the safest option.
But that’s exactly where a pair of conmen were waiting to pounce.
Just inside the high street branch, the two Romanians who pointed out that she had just dropped £5 were actually tricking her into turning away… so they could steal her money from a cashpoint machine.

Visit the link here and look at the following pix. 

£1M COST OF INTERPRETERS

The cost of providing interpreters to assist Romanians appearing at magistrates and crown courts for criminal cases has hit more than £800,000.

Freedom of Information requests to the Ministry of Justice revealed that the bill was £804,846 for the period from February 2012 to January 2013.

The money was paid to Capita Translation and Interpreting, which won the contract to provide translations services in January 2012. The bill for the final month was £89,387.

Previously, courts in England relied on local interpreters.

Last month the Mail revealed that the annual cost to the taxpayer of hiring court interpreters to assist all non-English speakers had almost doubled in just one year to £15.5million

Below is very interesting most especially because it was done in Nov., and his prediction of the recent May election seems to have been pretty much spot on. The pols are scared for the first time. And the 2nd party currently in power here, the Lib/Dems, have been left in the dust after the May elections.

Like A Lead Balloon

Report: Mosul Fell In Just A Couple Hours

Half a million run away from city of 1.6 million

Hundreds of ISIS fighters, “more deadly and brutal than even Al Qaeda” overran city against almost no resistance.

“US trained Iraqi soldiers just melted away, fleeing their posts when the fighting began”. Trained and equipped at the cost of BILLIONS of US taxpayer dollars.

Extremist militants have overrun the northern city of Mosul, the country’s second-largest. As many as half a million civilians have fled their homes to escape the violence, and the brazen incursion has highlighted all the weaknesses of the government’s ability to maintain security.
...
Monday night into Tuesday, militants seized Mosul’s airport, its TV stations and the governor’s office. They freed up to 1,000 prisoners.

Police and soldiers ran from their posts rather than put up a fight, abandoning their weapons as they went. The militants took their place in the city’s boulevards and buildings.

“There was no presence of any government forces on the streets, the majority of their posts destroyed and manned by (Islamist militants),” resident Firas al-Maslawi told CNN.

Despite its size—the predominantly Sunni city has a population of about 1.6 million—Mosul’s collapse was swift. After weekend clashes, hundreds of radical Islamist fighters from an al Qaeda splinter group swarmed through the west of the city overnight Monday to Tuesday.

American-trained Iraqi government forces fled in the face of the onslaught by the fighters, believed to be from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, an al Qaeda splinter group also known as ISIS and ISIL. The militants now control most, if not all, of the city.

Iraq’s parliamentary speaker was scathing. “The (Iraqi) forces abandoned their weapons and the commanders fled, leaving behind weapons, armored vehicles. Their positions were easy prey for terrorists.”

On Wednesday, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki ordered that all military leaders who fled be court-martialed.

The heavily armed radicals overran police stations, freed more than 1,000 prisoners from the city jail and captured the city’s international airport.


ISIS is now poised to conquer Baiji, an oil town 2 hours north of Baghdad on the only highway to Mosul. Lose Baiji, lose any chance of retaking Mosul. Oh, and lose a big chunk of the oil production as well.

The Baiji oil refinery—Iraq’s largest—is still under the control of Iraqi security forces, officials said.

The fact that ISIS forces are trying to take the town will worry the oil industry in Iraq but also suggests a wider strategic aim.

Baiji sits on the main highway north from Baghdad to Mosul—a road that passes through rural areas in which ISIS has a lot of influence.

For the government to reinforce its troops in Mosul, it needs to drive them through Baiji.

It’s going to be a tough row to hoe. Iraq isn’t really a nation. Nor is Syria, Iran, or many of the other “countries” over there in the sand lands. They are area drawn on a map by foreigners. Sectarian hatred and tribalism still reign supreme. One flavor of jizzlam can’t wait to get back to killing members of some other flavor of jizzlam for their heresy. And the tribes from this village have a never ending blood feud with the tribes from that village. And on and on forever. Because it isn’t the civilized world. These aren’t nation-states. They aren’t even city-states, in the classic Athenian model. They’re little bitty tribes of barbarians, lice who can only pretend to cooperate with each other until they see a chance to stick the knife in for their own advantage. Tribes and clans who hate everyone else. Me and my relatives and neighbors from this one crusty village at odds with the entire world. My immediate family against our village. My brother and me against our father. Me versus my brother. And I hate myself too, probably. And that’s all they’ve ever been. Since forever. Animals.

No wonder it was so easy for a few hundred desert rats to rout a city of 1.6 million. Straight out of the Koran, actually.

DEFEAT In Iraq

Al Qaeda Takes Mosul

ISIS/ISIL Forces Poised To Overrun Baghdad

AQ ISIS Already Has Fallujah, Ramadi, Anbar Province and northern half of Iraq

Forming Islamist Jihad State With Syria??

image

Holy Shiite. Map from Debka Files.



Holy cat crap on a cracker! Where the hell did this come from? All I hear on the news is Bergdahl and the VA. We fought a damn war to secure this sandpit, at the cost of more than 4000 American lives and 10 times as many maimed and wounded. Why The FUCK isn’t this the only story on TV 24-7??

[ DEBKA Files, today ] Al Qaeda in Iraq (ISIS: Islamist State of Iraq and Syria), captured the northern Iraqi oil city of Mosul, capital of Nineveh Province, Tuesday, June 10, after the Iraqi military defenders caved in and fled. Mosul is Iraq’s third largest city after Baghdad and Basra with a population of around two million.

Ministers in Nuri al-Maliki’s government have sent> desperate appeals to the Obama administration for help to save Baghdad and Iraq from doom.

debkafile’s military sources report that the Iraqi army’s command facilities and bases in Mosul are ablaze and many bodies of Iraqi soldiers are lying in the town’s streets. Convoys of fleeing troops were ambushed by the invaders and destroyed.
The fall of Mosul with heavy casualties is the worst disaster suffered by the Iraqi army in its feeble attempts to fend off the deep inroads Al Qaeda has been making in the country for more than a year. ISIS now controls two major Iraqi cities, after capturing Fallujah earlier this year, has overrun parts of Ramadi and Tikrit, as well as eastern provinces bordering on Iran, Diyala province and parts of the town Baquba, where just Tuesday, 20 people were killed in two explosions.

Unknown number of casualties ... assume thousands. You don’t destroy “convoys” without a whole lot of bloodshed. Plus civilians. And any AQ fighters killed by accident.

[ PJ Tattler, today ] Iraq’s second-largest city fell to jihadists, a danger that had been building up but appeared to be low on Washington’s priority list.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, formerly known as al-Qaeda in Iraq, “infiltrated the old-city quarter of Meidan and have established a bridgehead close to the Old Bridge over the Tigris River that bisects the city into two halves,” according to the newspaper Azzaman.

“Government troops lack the necessary air support to take out the militants. Their assaults have failed so far to halt the push by ISIS… The districts and towns nearby report large-scale exodus, with thousands of displaced Mosul residents arriving in Zammar and the Kurdish city of Dahouk.”

Azzaman reports that Kurdish militias — the peshmerga — are on “high alert” to take a stand against the terrorists.

On Monday, Nineveh Governor Atheel al-Nujaifi made a televised plea to Mosul’s residents, calling on them to “stand firm in their areas and to defend them against the strangers,” according to the BBC.
...
Fallujah fell to al-Qaeda forces in January, sparking swift criticism on the Hill of the administration’s strategy in Iraq and subsequent pullout map in Afghanistan.

“Look, we’re following very closely reports of significant ISIL attacks, particularly in the city of Mosul. The security situation is, quite frankly, there still in flux. And the Iraqi security forces have undertaken operations to fight back against this; they remain ongoing. Obviously, I can’t go into all of the on-the-ground specifics,” Harf said Monday.

“We have worked with the Iraqis quite a bit to build their capacity and their capability to fight this threat,” she added. “ISIL has recently launched attacks on Anbar University in Ramadi, on the PUK in other places.

[ Hot Air, today ] Mosul falls to al-Qaeda as US-trained security forces flee
And not just Mosul, according to some reports, but the entire northern province of Nineveh has now fallen into al-Qaeda’s control.  Parliamentarians from the region want a declaration of emergency and immediate government intervention, but the forces that had been in Mosul have fled — some of which abandoned their uniforms as well as their posts as the ISIS forces swarmed into the city

Insurgents seized control early Tuesday of most of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, including the provincial government headquarters, offering a powerful demonstration of the mounting threat posed by extremists to Iraq’s teetering stability.

Fighters with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), an al-Qaeda offshoot, overran the entire western bank of the city overnight after Iraqi soldiers and police apparently fled their posts, in some instances discarding their uniforms as they sought to escape the advance of the militants.

Iraq’s speaker of parliament, Osama Nujaifi, said the city that ranks as the capital of northern Iraq is now entirely in insurgent hands.

“When the battle got tough in the city of Mosul, the troops dropped their weapons and abandoned their posts, making it an easy prey for the terrorists,” he told a televised news conference in Baghdad.
...
Iraqi Parliament speaker Usama al-Nujaifi said the terrorists are now setting their sight on Salahuddin, a province just north of Baghdad.

“They have already seized the Shergat air base in Salahuddin”, Nujaifi said, adding that terrorists laid their hands on weapon depots, heavy equipment and army helicopters from abandoned army bases in Mosul.
[Saving Baghdad ...] This will be almost impossible to do, and entirely impossible to do quickly. We pulled out all of our forces three years ago when the Obama administration failed to negotiate for a residual force for this exact scenario. In order to land an effective fighting force to defend Baghdad and retake Mosul, we would need to commit tens of thousands of troops and a large amount of materiel in a big hurry. Logistically speaking, that would be a feat worthy of George S. Patton and the Battle of the Bulge in order for us to get to Baghdad before ISIS does, especially with Iraqi security forces collapsing.

Politically speaking, it’s a dead letter. Obama just coughed up five prizes to the Taliban in his haste to get the US out of Afghanistan. Does Iraq really expect Obama to restart the Iraq War all over again after spending his entire national political career speaking out against it? Agreement or no, Obama almost certainly won’t send combat troops into Iraq, even if it’s to fight al-Qaeda, and very certainly not before the midterm elections.

The White House poo-pooed this AQ surge Monday , saying that reports were vastly overrated. At this point, the Iraq story is starting to hit US TV news. The battle for Mosul took about 5 days.

Pulling total defeat from the closed jaws of absolute victory. That’s Change you can Believe in.

more at Washington Post, et al
more at the NY Times, et al
and of course, Atlas Shrugs



Oh ... and a little By The Way ... when those chickenshit Iraqi forces shit themselves and ran from battle, they left thousands of tons of arms behind. Brand new, supplied by the USA. From helmets to rifles to ammo to artillery to trucks to tanks. Enough to equip an army, for real. Now in the hands of AQ.

[ The New York Times, today ] The insurgent fighters who routed the Iraqi army out of Mosul on Tuesday did not just capture much of Iraq’s second-largest city. They also gained a windfall of arms, munitions and equipment abandoned by the soldiers as they fled — arms that were supplied by the United States and intended to give the troops an edge over the insurgents.

The problem is not a new one, but it looms larger now that the United States is shifting its counterterrorism strategy away from using American armed forces directly, and toward relying on allied or indigenous troops and security forces supplied and trained by the United States. President Obama proposed last week that a $5 billion fund be set up to finance such efforts.
...
But those proxy forces do not always prove equal to the task, and when they buckle, the United States finds itself having unwittingly armed its enemies — a problem the Obama administration has been trying to avoid in Syria by carefully limiting its aid to the opposition there. The militants who swept into control of Mosul on Tuesday are believed to be connected to the main Islamist militant group fighting in Syria.

Of course they are. What a wonderful coincidence for AQ that they’ve got their top 5 leaders back, to go along with a lifetime’s worth of new weapons, and who knows how much captured intel.

Gunman, student dead after shooting at Oregon high school

Troutdale Oregon, just east of Portland:

One student was killed at the hands of a shooter at a high school near Portland, Oregon, on Tuesday morning, police agencies said.  The suspected shooter is also dead, the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office said. It was not immediately clear how the shooter died.

There was only one shooter involved in the incident, police said. About an hour after the shooting, Oregon State Police said the area was secure and the situation was contained.

The shooting happened at about 8 a.m. (11 a.m. ET) at Reynolds High School in Troutdale, about 12 miles east of Portland, said Sue Strickland of the Troutdale Police Department. A semiautomatic weapon was involved in the shooting, she said.

Classes were in session at the time, Strickland said. It wasn’t clear how many people were injured, and details about what led to the shooting weren’t immediately available. A couple of SWAT teams responded, Strickland said.

The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that the situation is stabilized at Reynolds High School in Troutdale.

Scott Anderson, the chief of the Troutdale Police Department, confirmed the deaths and called the events a “tragic day” for the community. Authorities did not say how the shooter died.

The sheriff’s office said at 8:07 a.m. local time Tuesday, police responded to the reports of shots fired at the school.

Students told The Associated Press they were informed over the intercom that there was a lockdown and to quietly go to their classrooms.

The wife of a vice principal at the school told KPTV that she received a text message from her husband that said there was an active shooter.

More than 100 police and sheriff’s units are reportedly on scene in addition to medical personnel and the FBI, according to KOIN 6.

Doug Daoust, the mayor of Troutdale, told Fox News that SWAT teams are evacuating classrooms one at a time. TV news broadcasts showed students being escorted away from the school with their hands on their heads, The Associated Press reports.

Rumor To News: Two Or Three Years

Today This Is News:

Afghan Taliban with modern US-made Stinger anti-aircraft missiles, 2012



Yet you’ve known about it for years. Pretty much. But it’s still a bit confusing.

The same missiles Hillary sent to arm the Libyan rebels. Probably not, but maybe some of those same 20,000/800/480 MANPADs that evaporated from Ghaddafi’s warehouses. And later turned up in Syria and elsewhere. A news story nearly dead on arrival. Don’t want to hear it, doesn’t fit the agenda, never happened, those were only vehicle mounted SA-24s and Russia says it never shipped them shoulder stocks, nothing to see here, bye bye.

Two years after the fact, it makes the newspapers. Because Qatar.

The Obama administration isn’t only giving the Taliban back its commanders — it’s giving them weapons.

Miliary records and sources reveal that on July 25, 2012, Taliban fighters in Kunar province successfully targeted a US Army CH-47 helicopter with a new generation Stinger missile.

They thought they had a surefire kill. But instead of bursting into flames, the Chinook just disappeared into the darkness as the American pilot recovered control of the aircraft and brought it to the ground in a hard landing.

The assault team jumped out the open doors and ran clear in case it exploded. Less than 30 seconds later, the Taliban gunner and his comrade erupted into flames as an American gunship overhead locked onto their position and opened fire.

The next day, an explosive ordnance disposal team arrived to pick through the wreckage and found unexploded pieces of a missile casing that could only belong to a Stinger missile.

Lodged in the right nacelle, they found one fragment that contained an entire serial number.

The investigation took time. Arms were twisted, noses put out of joint. But when the results came back, they were stunning: The Stinger tracked back to a lot that had been signed out by the CIA recently, not during the anti-Soviet ­jihad.

They believe the Qataris delivered between 50 and 60 of those same Stingers to the Taliban in early 2012, and an additional 200 SA-24 Igla-S surface-to-air missiles.

Qatar now is expected to hold five Taliban commanders released from Guantanamo for a year before allowing them to go to Afghanistan.

But if we can’t trust the Qataris not to give our weapons to the Taliban, how can we trust them with this?


Yet ... somewhere down the memory hole ...

[9/27/2011] The White House announced today it planned to expand a program to secure and destroy Libya’s huge stockpile of dangerous surface-to-air missiles, following an ABC News report that large numbers of them continue to be stolen from unguarded military warehouses. ...
“Once these missiles walk away from these facilities, they’re very difficult to get back, as the CIA realized in Afghanistan,” said Bouckaert.

When the Afghan mujahideen were fighting the Soviets more than two decades ago, the CIA supplied the Afghans with 1,000 Stinger surface-to-air missiles, which had a devastating effect on Soviet military aircraft. After the Soviets had retreated, however, the CIA spent millions of dollars trying to buy back the remaining missiles from the Afghan fighters.

Hey, has anyone ever seen a progress report from this initiative? Just wondering ...

also ...

[9/07/2011] A potent stash of Russian-made surface-to-air missiles is missing from a huge Tripoli weapons warehouse amid reports of weapons looting across war-torn Libya.

They are Grinch SA-24 shoulder-launched missiles, also known as Igla-S missiles, the equivalent of U.S.-made Stinger missiles.

Riight. But these were the commie bottle rockets, not the ever lovin’ Red White and Blue version. So maybe that doesn’t matter here.

Fine. In which case ...

[Breitbart, 8/13/2103] In August 12, 2013 Joe DiGenova, attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers, told Washington D.C.’s WMAL that one of the reasons people have remained tight-lipped about Benghazi is because 400 U.S. missiles were “diverted to Libya” and ended up being stolen and falling into “the hands of some very ugly people.”

DiGenova represents Benghazi whistleblower Mark Thompson. He told WMAL that he “does not know whether [the missiles] were at the annex, but it is clear the annex was somehow involved in the distribution of those missiles.”

Although many of us online had made the missile connection well before this article, which came out 11 months after Benghazi. Heck, even Rand Paul had figured that one out by February 2013. The rest of us just nodded our heads and thought “yup, Fast & Furious, the International Version”.

llowing then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s February 7 testimony on Capitol Hill about the Benghazi attacks, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) suggested that one of the causes behind the terrorist attack “may have been that there was a gun running operation going on in Benghazi, leaving Libya and going to Turkey and [distributing] arms to the [Syrian] rebels.”

Good boy Libyan rebel with Soviet SA-24 MANPAD. Looks similar, but not exactly like our Stinger MANPAD

So if the Tali’s new [as of 2012] Stingers are not from Mohmar’s Wonderful Weapons Warehouse, then from whence?  From the CIA, via Hillary Clinton. It’s all a bit confusing, but it seems that Gadhaffi’s warehouses had lots of old model Soviet SA-7s, plenty of new model SA-24s (although nobody really knows if they were only the truck mounted model or not) and possibly, perhaps, maybe, some Stingers. From 1980s Afghanistan maybe? Who knows. But when it was time to arm up the rebels, in that emergency little war we just had to get involved in, somehow the USA had to SEND the rebels new missiles, and they went there via the little flyspeck nation of Qattar. And sticky fingers managed to misplace a couple of pallets full. Which shortly ended up in Afghanistan, being used against our helicopter. Two months before Benghazi. Beats me why we couldn’t have just rowed a boat full to shore and handed them over directly, instead of going through how many hands and how many countries on a path that started in Qattar, 2100 miles away.

But now it’s a Big Deal, because now we’re supposed to trust Qattar to keep those 5 newly released AQ terrorists under control. Sure they will.

A Minor Invasion

Why Are We Being Swamped With Illegal Alien Children?

This is not random. It did not happen without the approval and assistance of Obama, DHS, DOJ, and ICE.



There’s something happening here
But what it is ain’t exactly clear
There’s a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it’s time we stop
Children, what’s that sound?
Everybody look - what’s going down?

Federal officials were scrambling at the weekend to provide medical and other supplies to an emergency shelter in Arizona to help house a surge of illegal child immigrants into the country that President Barack Obama has called “an urgent humanitarian situation”.

More than 750 children from Central America spent the weekend in an unused warehouse in Nogales, Arizona, which the border patrol agency has turned into a temporary “way-station” for the children, a state official said.

The improvised shelter is one of the by-products of a jump in illegal immigration from Central America this year, including 47,000 children who entered the country on their own – almost double the number from the year before.

The difficulties in coping with such large numbers of unaccompanied children are stoking the already tortuous debates about reforming the country’s immigration system.

Jan Brewer, the conservative Republican governor of Arizona, described the conditions at the shelter in Nogales as “dire”. She urged people to ask the Obama administration “the reason for this massive influx of illegal crossings and the cost to taxpayers for having to deal with the crisis created by the President”.

So, now our quasi-benevolent godking dictator has gone beyond using children as sympathetic photographic props, and is now using them as offensive weapons to get his way on the amnesty bill? Is that what this is? If so, man, that’s low. Even for Oblahblah.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said Friday she is “disturbed and outraged” after she was informed by federal officials that not only has the government been shipping illegal immigrants out of Texas and “dumping” them in her state, it has no plans to stop.

Federal officials told Brewer Friday that the practice will continue for the foreseeable future, and this weekend more than 1,000 illegal immigrant children will be “dumped” in Arizona. Adults and family units will also arrive, though Brewer was not told how many, her office said.

Reports first surfaced last week that scores of illegal immigrants in Texas were being flown, bused and then abandoned out of state in Arizona and elsewhere.  After learning of the practice, Brewer sent a scathing letter to the president on Monday posing a string of questions about the policy. Brewer said Friday what little she has learned since then has made her even more concerned.

“This is a crisis of the federal government’s creation, and the fact that the border remains unsecure – now apparently intentionally - while this operation continues full-steam ahead is deplorable,” she said in a statement.

Brewer said the federal government never formally informed her administration of the practice and has never explained it.

Well yeah, but how are they getting here?

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security started flying immigrants in the country illegally to Arizona from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas last month after http://cnsnews.com/news/article/arizona-sends-supplies-warehouse-holding-700-foreign-unaccompanied-children">the number of immigrants — including more than 48,000 children traveling on their own — overwhelmed the Border Patrol there.

Immigrant families were flown from Texas, released in Arizona, and told to report to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office near where they were traveling within 15 days. ICE has said the immigrants were mostly families from Central America fleeing extreme poverty and violence.

The Homeland Security official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because there was no authorization to discuss the matter publicly, said the holding center opened for unaccompanied migrant children because the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services had nowhere to turn.

“They became so overwhelmed and haven’t kept up with planning,” the official said.

At the holding center, vendors are being contracted to provide nutritional meals, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials. The Federal Emergency Management Agency, meanwhile, will provide counseling services and recreational activities.

The Homeland Security official said the number of children at the warehouse was expected to double to around 1,400. The warehouse has a capacity of about 1,500.

The Arizona Daily Star reported Saturday (http://bit.ly/UlC3VD ) that Jimena Díaz, consul general of Guatemala in Phoenix, visited the center Friday and said there were about 250 children from Guatemala, with the rest coming from El Salvador and Honduras.

Well yeah, but how are they getting here?
Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, El Salvador ... these are all Central American countries SOUTH of Mexico. And Mexico has secure southern borders. And a bus ride, a train ticket, a flight on a plane all costs money. Times tens and tens of thousands of people. That costs TONS of money. And Mexico doesn’t have any. So, once again: How are they getting here??

McALLEN - Central Americans say news reports in their countries are encouraging them to make the journey north to the United States.

A mother and child told CHANNEL 5 NEWS that the message being disseminated in their country is, “go to America with your child, you won’t be turned away.”

The woman, Nora Griselda Bercian Diaz, from Guatemala, said she endured threats from the Zetas and extortion from corrupt Mexican police. She eventually crossed the Rio Grande with her 6-year-old Delmi Griselda Paul Bercian by her side.

The woman said she wants a U.S. education for her daughter.  “I want to study,” said the girl who hopes to one day become a doctor.
...
Bercian Diaz said they endured harassment in Tampico. She said members of the Zetas drug cartel tried to kidnap them.

“They chased us to kidnap us to request for ransom,” Bercian Diaz said.

She said they barely escaped.

Bercian Diaz said they found corruption in the Mexican government.

“They were asking for 500 pesos, 600 pesos. The federals took that money from us,” she said.

She said the Mexican federal police and immigration officers asked for money to “turn the other way.”

“The immigration officers took 1,500 pesos,” Bercian Diaz said.

So, typical behavior from the scumdog bendejos south of the border, but who is disseminating this message down there?

Illegal women, kids swarm US via Mexico after home countries report Obama ‘amnesty,’ free legal aid
Driven by an agricultural disaster and lured by news reports in their home countries that a feckless Obama administration has essentially declared amnesty for illegal aliens, thousands of women and children are flooding holding centers in Texas and Arizona.
...
The immigrants are mainly coming from Central America, which makes it more difficult to deport them than just sending them back to Mexico.

According to the Arizona Star, one reason behind the sudden surge is a coffee fungus ["rust’] that has destroyed coffee crops and wiped out plantation jobs in Central America.

However, Wilder said the true depth of the crisis is a creation of the Obama administration.

Hundreds of unaccompanied minors who entered the United States illegally through Texas are being shipped to Nogales, Arizona, creating a problem there so serious the federal government is sending relief supplies and asking the state for vaccines, an aide to Gov. Jan Brewer said Friday.

Andrew Wilder, the governor’s communications chief, said federal officials told Brewer’s office they were moving 432 children into Arizona late Friday, with another 367 expected today and an identical number Sunday. And that is apparently just the beginning.

“More unaccompanied minors will continue to Arizona,” Wilder said.
...
There also are reports of increased violence in Honduras that has led to more illegal immigrants from that country.

This shift in the migrants’ countries of origin has put a crimp in ICE operations, which normally involve simply shipping illegal immigrants, most of whom have come from Mexico, back to the border.

In essence, the illegal immigrants are being released on their own, with orders to report to an ICE office within 15 days of arriving at their final location.

But Wilder said the problem is the lack of border enforcement by the Obama administration.

And he said it will only get worse as new immigrants figure out they are not immediately being shipped home.

“As word continues to grow throughout other countries that America’s borders are open, if you get to our border you will be welcomed, we expect the influx that is already a crisis level ... will continue,” Wilder said. And he said the Obama administration has made no real effort to secure the border.

“If this administration would put half the effort into securing the border that it has put into this operation of transporting illegal aliens to Arizona, and other states possibly, then this crisis wouldn’t exist.”

And to make matters worse, the administration announced on Thursday that it will renew its non-deportation program for young adult illegal immigrants.

“Despite the acrimony and partisanship that now exists in Washington, almost all of us agree that a child who crossed our border illegally with a parent, or in search of a parent or a better life, was not making an adult choice to break our laws, and should be treated differently than adult law-breakers,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said.

So now you know. Open borders. An invasion of illegals; armies of minors. Soon to drag all their relatives along behind them. Never to be deported, and forever to be supported. Because Obama said so. Plain and simple.

Why do we have a legislature in Washington DC? Obviously, all we need is a godking.




Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you’re always afraid
Step out of line, the men come and take you away

Pretty All Around

Not exactly today’s Top 40, but a nice tune done by a pretty singer a few years back.






There’s a light at each end of this tunnel,

You shout ‘cause you’re just as far in as you’ll ever be out

And these mistakes you’ve made, you’ll just make them again

If you’d only try turning around.




2 AM and I’m still awake, writing a song

If I get it all down on paper, it’s no longer inside of me,

Threatening the life it belongs to

And I feel like I’m naked in front of the crowd

Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud

And I know that you’ll use them, however you want to




But you can’t jump the track, we’re like cars on a cable,

And life’s like an hourglass, glued to the table

No one can find the rewind button now

Sing it if you understand.

and breathe, just breathe

woah breathe, just breathe,

Oh breathe, just breathe,

Oh breathe, just breathe.

Gotta Be Something






It’s that happy time of year again. Not only are the trees in hyper-pollen mode, the pines out here in the parking lot are practically sweating sap. And peeing “honeydew”. All over my car. Blobs of sap, dropped half a teaspoon at a time. Honeydew, or just misty sap, complete with pollen or grit blobs, so it’s nearly like adhesive sandpaper.

Can’t hardly see a damn thing out the windshield. And all the online cures, so far anyway, don’t do jack. Because this stuff falls at night, or at dawn. And then sits there baking all day in the sun. So it’s dried on. Hardened. And really starting to annoy me.

I’ve got scrapers. I’ve got razor blades. But first I need to dissolve, or at least soften, this horrible sticky mess. Mineral spirits didn’t work worth a damn. At best it left a huge foggy haze behind. And forget any kind of glass cleaner. This is out of their league.

UPDATE: We have a winner! Two winners!!

Out there in the bright sun, with the windshield almost too hot to touch, the sap came right off with a spray of plain old grocery store brand orange cleaner and quick wipe with paper towels. Orange cleaner spray came up short on the big blobs though, and this is where Pretty Nails, a generic, acetone free nail polish remover, really came through. Dampen a small square of paper towel, dab it on, wipe it off. Sap: gone. Blobs: gone. Streaks: gone.  It worked great on the body panels too. Granted, I was a bit afraid of nail polish remover on paint, so I wiped it right off and then gave things a rinse with the orange spray. And then cooled it all down and flushed it clean by pouring a gallon of cold water over everything.

Orange spray cleaner did a super job on the regular sap accumulations. Cut through them instantly. And the dribbly drips - gone. Does it work better or worse when the windshield is less than oven hot? I have no idea.

Mineral spirits didn’t seem to do much of anything. It didn’t do jack the other day on cool glass, and it didn’t do much today on hot glass.

WD-40 did sort of work, but we had to keep rubbing and rubbing and rubbing. And it leaves an oil slick behind, no kidding, since it’s a lubricant. Good thing orange spray cleaner takes it all away.

So I’ve got a clean enough windshield for today, and I’ll buy a new set of wiper blades tomorrow. Because the sap killed them too. Shriveled them up like a raisin in the sun.

Sunny Saturday

Saturday afternoon, sunny and mild. Looks like a great time for a nap.

My wife is out like a light on the sofa.

Our visiting neighborhood moggy cat, whom I call Scowler, decided that the new Birthday Grill makes the perfect cat-sized bit of shade, just right for a catnap.

He’s a strange little fellow. Comes right up to the sliding doors and stares in, sometimes by the hour. This earned him the title of our Peeping Tomcat. But he won’t come inside! And he doesn’t want food. And if I’m out working on the garden project, or dabbling about on the patio, he’ll come visit. But don’t come any closer, or he’ll hiss! Sometimes I think he’s less a cat than a pushmi-pullyu.  A Great Wild Animal ... in need of a tummy rub.

rural school critised because, all the pupils were of ‘white British heritage’.

I haven’t been as active here as I’d like to be.
Minor but persistent probs and all that.  There are times I don’t even want to be near a puter, just too damn tired and today is one such day.
However … from time to time I see something in the paper that is just so damn annoying, so bloody stupid, and so libtard politically correct, no matter what I feel like beside pissed off, I boot anyway and share the anger and the frustration.

Some years ago I shared a story with the same idea and bmews regulars have seen this more than once.  So this bit is for those surfing through, and those new to bmews who haven’t had the experience of the story. Yet.

I can’t recall the year it happened and have long ago lost the site, but know it was in the Daily Mail.  At the time, Labour was in occupation of number 10, and the left was busying itself with the final solution of the ruination of their own country. This one.

A national park faced closing and a number of park wardens were about to be made redundant.

Some bright light had decided that, “ there were too many white, middle aged, middle class ppl using the park.” As if minorities were being refused. But it’s the mindset of those lefty loons that get to me every time. 
So with that in mind ….. here’s why I’m here today.

If you happen to live in a rural environment and have kids, the chances are that almost anywhere in the more civilized western world, the majority if not all, will be white folks.  And there are those who see that as undesirable.  They won’t be happy until there just aren’t any white folks left anywhere.  The order of the new day will be forced integration and marriage to breed out the white gene.  A bit ott I suppose but some things just bother the hell outta me.  Like this story.

btw … £35 in American dollars is $58.82
Ofsted. The letters stand for, Office for Standards in Education
The most important standard being anything currently politically correct and approved by the left.

Rural school deemed ‘too white’ by Ofsted visits London to mix with ethnic pupils

· Payhembury Primary in Devon was criticised for not being multicultural ( said as if they planned it that way)italics mine

· So visit planned to a school in London where most pupils are from minorities
· Smallberry Green primary in Isleworth, West London, will host 29 pupils
· Parents have called the £35 trip ‘patronising’ - though others welcome it

By Luke Salked and Tania Steere and Claire Ellicott

A small rural primary school has organised a sleepover to London – so the children get a chance to see people who are not white.
Payhembury Primary in Devon was criticised by Ofsted for being insufficiently ‘multicultural’.

So the 68-pupil Church of England school is asking parents to pay for their children to make a two-day trip to a school with a wide mix of ethnic backgrounds.
The visit – described by one parent as patronising and bizarre – has been sold to parents as a way of boosting Payhembury’s Ofsted grade from good to the top rating of outstanding.

( So in order to be an “outstanding school”, some kind of phoney arrangement must be made in which the parents all have to pay cash. If the idea is so damn good, the gas bags at Ofsted should foot the entire bill. )

The school they are visiting, Smallberry Green in Isleworth, West London – where three-quarters of the 410 pupils are from ethnic minorities – achieved the same good Ofsted rating.
Explaining the motivation for the trip, Payhembury headteacher Penny Hammett told parents in a letter: ‘The purpose of this trip is to build up a relationship with a school in a very different community to ours.

‘This will enable our children to gain a better understanding of multicultural Britain, which was identified in our last Ofsted as being an area for development.
‘Through our topics, visitors and discussions, we have been developing multicultural awareness in both Britain and throughout the world, but this visit will help us to experience in real life a school where there is a wide mix of children with different ethnic backgrounds and almost 50 per cent of the children do not have English as their first language.’

The letter also explains that four teachers will accompany the children on the two-day trip, which will involve pupils sleeping in the Isleworth school and using its catering facilities, for an estimated cost of £35.

While in London, the Devon children will engage in outdoor activities and record a CD.
Pupils from the school have written to their new pen-pals in London, some of whom will take part in a return visit to the school, near Honiton.
Mrs Hammett’s letter invites parents to a meeting to discuss the trip. But yesterday one mother said: ‘I’m astounded by this idea. Just because the children go to a small school in the country does not mean they aren’t aware of people with different coloured skin to them.
‘It’s very patronising – and for the school they are visiting too.’

‘We are being asked to shell out £35 to try and boost their next Ofsted inspection. I think it’s a very cynical approach.’
However, another parent supported the initiative, saying: ‘I think it’s a nice idea.

(Uh huh.  Be interesting to see if their offspring one day comes home with an ape on arm and says meet my boyfriend. Wonder if the idea will be seen in the same light.)

‘We don’t live in an ethnically diverse area, so it’s good for the kids to meet children from other kinds of background.’
In Isleworth, student Usna Hakimi, 19, who was picking up her two sisters up from Smallberry Green, said: ‘They’ve just told me about the sleepover and they’re quite excited to meet other children from a different part of England. It’s good for them to learn about other cultures.’

Smallberry Green head Caroline Hodges said the trip was organised with Payhembury because it places emphasis on outdoor learning.
‘The children will not be doing any cultural activities when they are here,’ she said.

The Rev Cate Edmonds, chairman of the governors at Payhembury, said: ‘We are fairly mono-cultural as an area in Devon and we don’t want children growing up thinking the whole world is full of trees and cows. This gives them an experience of urban living.’
Mrs Hammett said the trip, in which 29 pupils are taking part, was about providing an enriching experience for the children at both schools.
‘Devon is very quaint but our children don’t get to see the big wide world,’ she said.

At Ofsted’s last visit in 2010, inspectors praised Payhembury as a ‘happy place’ but pointed out all the pupils were of ‘white British heritage’.

( an obvious crime of the highest order )

Their report recommended ‘improving links with communities in contrasting parts of the UK and abroad’.

Last night Ofsted said at that time inspectors were required to report on the contribution made by the school to community cohesion, a requirement removed in 2011.

Oh dear … So those poor white kids have no iPhones, no computers, no tablets, no TV and have never been to the nearest town with a movie theater.  How deprived they all must be.
