Leaks by Edward Snowden and the Guardian have put British hostages in even greater peril.

Every single time I see a photo of this filthy rat bastard, all I can think about is how pleasurable it would be to kill the shit. 
Slowly. Very slowly. Blood boils and I see that red curtain.

The Germans btw, have invited Edward Snowden to Berlin, as they have questions with regard to NSA listening in on phone calls and spying.
I doubt the ass wipe would risk possible arrest by leaving his new home in mother Russia.  Oh yeah, I’d also like to delete in the same long and drawn out manner, his lady friend who organized his escape originally.

I don’t suppose we can nuke Moscow to set an example to any others who defy the interests of American national security. Yeah okay, didn’t really think so but it was a nice thought while it lasted.

OK so …. This caught my eye last week and I think you should read it.
The only issue I would take with the learned prof is the idea of terrorists “communicating with each other only in person”.
I recall hearing that way back in 2011, shortly after 9/11.

An intelligence expert’s devastating verdict: Leaks by Edward Snowden and the Guardian have put British hostages in even greater peril

Professor Anthony Glees is Director of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at The University of Buckingham.

The agony of Barbara Henning, the wife of the Islamic State hostage Alan Henning, so genuinely and painfully expressed two days ago, is almost too much to bear.
Her anguish is felt not just by the family members of all IS’s hostages and, of course, by the hostages themselves, but is shared in part by every decent person in Britain.
David Cameron has expressed outrage at this organisation’s sadistic killings. He has declared that the killers of the British aid worker David Haines, and the Americans James Foley and Steven Sotloff, would be ‘hunted down and brought to justice’.
He has promised we will drive back and ‘ultimately destroy’ the so-called Islamic State and the ‘monsters’ who fight for it.


IS are masters of propaganda. The way they paraded Mr Henning as the next in line to be executed, and followed this with the two videos of British journalist and photographer John Cantlie, almost seemed to be daring our country, and daring our Prime Minister, to convert his fine words into real action.
There is just one major problem with what Cameron has said.

It is that we don’t know where the hostages actually are. Nor, for all this week’s U.S.-led bombing, do we know the precise location of this murderous organisation’s leadership or the whereabouts of its chief, Dr Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi (he holds a PhD in Islamic Studies).

The big question is: why don’t we know? Britain has one of the most sophisticated intelligence communities in the world, second in many respects only to that of America, with whom we share our information. But the Americans don’t know either. Why not?

I believe this is very largely the work of one man, and of one British newspaper — Edward Snowden and The Guardian. In June 2013, Snowden — a former contractor for the U.S. National Security Agency, leaked details via The Guardian about the extent to which GCHQ, our government’s listening post, could monitor electronically-transmitted messages and its capacity to search the ‘haystack’ of vast amounts of data in order to identify ‘the needle’ that might help them defeat terrorists.

By doing so, he and The Guardian implicitly warned all Islamist terrorists throughout the world to stop using their mobile phones, to stop texting their fellow killers, not to use social media — as they had been doing with the greatest possible skill — and to communicate with each other only in person.

The result was that the vital intelligence at home and abroad began to dry up, virtually overnight.

The Guardian happily stoked the fire in the interests of ‘civil liberties’ with the effect that the freedoms of Snowden and his chums — and of Islamist terrorists worldwide, including extremists in the UK — were set higher than those of kidnapped schoolgirls in Nigeria, or the hostages held by the grisly medieval fanatics in Syria or Iraq.

The scaremongering caused a gale to blow through Whitehall and Westminster. Political leaders became terrified of being accused of ‘snooping’ and our intelligence community was put firmly and decisively on the back foot by the politicians’ cowardly behaviour.

Heavy blows to the morale of the intelligence services followed on from the totally unjustified and absurd claims from civil libertarians that Snowden and The Guardian had protected Britain from turning into a Stasi-run state.

Nowhere was this seen with more horrifying clarity than in August 2013, when David Miranda — partner of The Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, who was covering stories based on Snowden’s leaks — was arrested at Heathrow Airport.

Miranda had been with Snowden in Russia. He was on his way to see Greenwald and was acting as courier. In order to allow a steady drip of harmful information to seep out week after week, Snowden used him to take new and hitherto unseen secret documents to Greenwald — and he was held on his arrival in the UK after a tip-off from MI5.

Despite being arrested in possession of many thousands of top secret British files on his computer, he was allowed at the express wish of Downing Street to destroy the hard drive of his computer and was then released to fly to visit his partner Greenwald, who was living in Brazil.

Downing Street’s argument was that by insisting that Miranda destroyed the hard drive, they would ensure the classified files were also destroyed. But, inevitably, they had been copied beforehand.

The truth is that, not merely were our politicians permitting Miranda to destroy the very evidence which could have been used to convict him — a serious criminal offence in itself — they were also signalling that Britain would not legitimately use the Official Secrets Act to maintain the integrity of Britain’s intelligence gathering capacity.

The message went out, loud and clear, that we would not put up a legal fight against either Miranda or The Guardian to ensure that secrets about our capacity for electronic interception, a key part of intelligence gathering and at the core of Britain’s biggest intelligence success in World War II at Bletchley Park, would remain hidden.


If this continues to be the attitude of our leaders, it will no longer be possible to use the Official Secrets Act to keep this country safe.

Snowden was technically not a British traitor because he is an American, but he betrayed the values of this country, lock stock and barrel.

He now resides in comfort in Russia, as the personal guest of President Putin. Unlike the hostages the Islamists take and butcher, he lives in comfort and safety, as do those from The Guardian newspaper who published his leaks.

Their success in doing so is an indication of our blindness. Their work has made ours so much harder.

It is my view that the only way now to get accurate intelligence to deliver justice to the beheaders, and to target our firepower in an area of Iraq and Syria the size of Britain, is to get British boots on the ground.

As long as David Cameron insists this will never happen, all that his policy will consist of is good intentions. And we know where they lead.

Our intelligence services have been severely compromised by their supine attitude towards Snowden and The Guardian’s activities. And our helplessness as the grotesque videos of hostages are paraded before our eyes by IS are a terrible reminder of this fact.

from the mayor of London to the world.  hellooooo

Writing in this morning’s Telegraph, the New York born quite English mayor of London has a few words.
Ah ... not really only a few. Quite a bit as it happens.
So I have just a small part here.

You might not agree to everything, but it is thought if not argument provoking.

Btw ....some ppl are calling for the govt. to revoke the citizenship of Brits who’ve gone over to the jihad side to fight, some of which have said they will bring back their skills learned over there.  While some of might be empty bragging, would anyone with a working brain discount that threat?  Right. Except my wife’s brain dead cousin Jo.  She might. But her aside.
Well, yeah as it happens.  The usual suspects on the left.

Did you guys know it was against international law to make a person “stateless” by taking away citizenship?  I only know what I read in the papers.
A good many Brits are saying F*** intl. law. This is a case of survival.  Terrorists under any label or belonging to whatever grouping, are as serious as a heart attack.  The west needs to act in any way whatever to secure the safety of our side.  There can’t be any co-existence with terrorists even if we wanted that.
They don’t want it.  They want us to all become muslims. And not just any old kind of muslim.  Gotta be their approved brand. 

Do nothing, and we invite the tide of terror to our front door

As the problem of Isil worsens by the day, it is surely time to bring back control orders

By Boris Johnson

Let’s assume he is indeed who he sounds like – another deluded British-born jihadi. I am afraid I have listened, on the Telegraph website, to the voice of the man who claims to be the killer of James Foley, and there seems little doubt that he grew up in this country. He was probably born in our wonderful NHS. He was schooled in our broadly excellent education system. He and his family have very likely spent their lives, like the rest of us, cushioned by our welfare state. And this is how he chooses to pay back the gift of nurture – by engaging in terrorism, declaring his allegiance to a novel barbarian state, and publicly beheading an entirely innocent journalist.

Young men such as this killer are famously told that if they die in “battle” they will be welcomed in heaven by the sexual ministrations of 72 virgins. Many of them believe it – even though scholars have suggested that the reference to “black-eyed virgins” is in fact a promise of 72 raisins. I suspect most of us don’t give a monkey’s what happens to this prat in heaven, whether he meets virgins or raisins – we just want someone to come along with a bunker-buster and effect an introduction as fast as possible. We care less about the weird theology, and more about the state of the Earth as we know it, and here, alas, the boasts of the killer are not entirely without substance.

We are going to have to make up our minds very quickly about this “caliphate”: how we will respond to the irruption of a new and hellish country on the map, and how we deal with these Brits who go off and fight in its name. These Isil wackos now control an area the size of Great Britain, considerable oil reserves, a population of about six million, some industry, and a military capability said to be second in the region only to Israel. To take them on will not be easy, and I can see all the arguments for doing little or nothing – letting “history” take its course.

To take on Isil would probably need a vast and coordinated series of American strikes by drones and other missiles, coupled with a lot of effort from special forces. Does Washington have the will? Do we?



Peter Westmacott, the ambassador to Washington, disclosed that 70 militants have been arrested after returning from Syria, a number of them carrying instructions for “very specific missions” to unleash terrorist atrocities on British soil.

That’s A Good Reason

Global Warming Alert CODE RED!!!

Glaciers Melting In Iceland At Alarming Rate!!

Golly, why? Could it be because

Iceland Volcano Blows It’s Top


Bardarbunga, a subglacial stratovolcano located under Iceland’s largest glacier

REYKJAVIK, Iceland – Iceland’s Bardarbunga volcano began erupting Saturday under the ice of Europe’s largest glacier, prompting the country to close the airspace over the volcano.

Thousands of small earthquakes have rattled the volcano, located deep beneath the Vatnajokull glacier, in the last week. Seismic data indicated that magma from the volcano was melting ice beneath the glacier’s Dyngjujokull icecap, Meteorological Office vulcanologist Melissa Pfeffer said.

The remote area, 200 miles east of the capital of Reykjavik, is uninhabited.

The Civil Protection Department said scientists flew over the ice cap Saturday afternoon but saw no visible signs of the eruption on the surface of the glacier.

Still, authorities raised the country’s aviation alert to red—the highest level on a five-point scale—indicating the threat of “significant emission of ash into the atmosphere.”

Icelandic authorities declared a no-fly zone of 100 nautical miles by 140 nautical miles around the eruption as a precaution, but did not shut down air space over most of the island nation in the North Atlantic.

“All airports are open and flights are on schedule,” said spokeswoman Olof Baldursdottir.

A 2010 eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokul volcano produced an ash cloud that caused a week of international aviation chaos, with more than 100,000 flights cancelled.

Pfeffer said it was not clear when, or if, the eruption would melt through the ice—which is between 330 to 1,300 feet thick—and fling steam and ash into the air. She said it could take up to a day for the ice to melt—or the eruption might remain contained beneath Europe’s largest glacier.

[in case you’re running low on Gloom & Doom news stories]

London Freezing, From a Faraway Land?
Iceland Eruption Could Freeze UK For Years

BRITAIN could freeze in YEARS of super-cold winters and miserable summers if the Bardarbunga volcano erupts, experts have warned.

Depending on the force of the explosion, minute particles thrust beyond the earth’s atmosphere can trigger DECADES of chaotic weather patterns.

Tiny pieces of debris act as billions of shields reflecting the sun’s light away from earth meaning winter temperatures could plunge LOWER THAN EVER before while summer will be devoid of sunshine.

The first effect could be a bitterly cold winter to arrive in weeks with thermometers plunging into minus figures and not rising long before next summer.

The Icelandic Met Office has this week warned of “strong indications of ongoing magma movement” around the volcano prompting them to raise the aviation warning to orange, the second highest and sparking fears the crater could blow at any moment.

The region has also this week been hit by a magnitude-four earthquake - the strongest for almost 20 years, officials said.

The British Met Office said the effects of an explosion on Britain’s weather depends on the wind direction in the upper atmosphere.

Spokeswoman Laura Young said: “If the upper winds are north-westerly it will have an effect on our weather.

“If the upper winds are westerly then it won’t.”

Experts have warned the icelandic volcano could erupt againExperts have warned the icelandic volcano could erupt again [AP]

Historic volcanic eruptions have had devastating effects on the weather in surrounding areas which have lasted for years.

In 1783 eastern regions of the United States recorded the lowest ever temperature after Iceland’s Laki volcano erupted that year.

As well as huge volumes of ash, the furious mountain also spat out large volumes of sulphur dioxide gas which added to the cooling effect.

In Indonesia, the eruption of Mount Tambora in 1815 led to an unusually cold spring and summer the following year. [referred to in history as “eighteen hundred and froze to death"]

The ice age is coming, the sun’s zooming in
Engines stop running, the wheat is growing thin
A nuclear error, but I have no fear
‘Cause London is drowning, and I live by the river

Syrian WMD Destroyed

Hey, remember Syria?

Remember how there’s this massive civil war going on there, with tens of thousands of casualties, all sorts of horrific war crimes being done by both sides, Obama’s Red Lines, and Syria’s “possible” use of poison gas? Remember how the whole world, with the help of the Russians, was going to neutralize the stockpiles of Assad’s chemical weapons? (the ones that didn’t come from Saddam Hussein, wink wink, nudge nudge??)

Well, progress is being made. At sea. So far, 581 tons of precursor chemicals used to make mustard gas have been destroyed. ( OMG. Can you imagine the size of the killing field that nearly 600 tons of poison gas would make?? ) Under the watchful eye of a multinational naval task force that includes the British frigate HMS Montrose, several Scandinavian cargo ships have shuttled the evil stuff to the American ship MV Cape Ray. Cape Ray is a 650’, 37 year old RO/RO container ship, now owned by the US Navy and currently modified as a chemical disposal factory, and is doing the job at a well guarded and undisclosed location somewhere at sea in the Mediterranean. 

And those 581 tons? That’s not even 75% of the overall stockpile. The Cape Ray has 269 shipping containers full of the crap on board. But progress is being made, and the story of putting a chemical hydrolysis plant on a ship and getting it halfway round the world is actually quite heroic.


MV Cape Ray

[ April 10, 2014 ] The MV Cape Ray left for the southern Italian port of Gioia Tauro to retrieve an estimated 560 tons of mustard blister agent and other materials extracted from Syria’s war-fractured territory. The move took place two days after President Bashar Assad’s regime delivered the last of its declared chemical-warfare stockpile into international custody, enabling the commencement of a destruction operation slated to take place in the Mediterranean Sea.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 11, 2014 – Specialists on the U.S. container ship M/V Cape Ray continue their work in the Mediterranean Sea, neutralizing chemical materials from Syria and contributing to what the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, or OPCW, on August 7 confirmed as the destruction of 74.2 percent of Syria’s chemical stockpile.

U.S. military and civilian specialists aboard the ship began using the field deployable hydrolysis system to neutralize Syrian chemical materials on July 7, Director of Pentagon Press Operations Army Col. Steve Warren told reporters at the time, anticipating that it would take about 60 days to complete the job.

On August 5 at the Aberdeen Proving Ground-Edgewood Team CBRNE capabilities showcase, Adam Baker, a chemical engineer and project manager with the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center, detailed the hard work that went into turning a land-based hydrolysis system into a field-deployable system in just five months.

“We had a gap in capabilities for a system that was transportable, that could be operated out of a remote location and that would [process] bulk liquid agent at high throughputs.”

The system had to be able to be transported to a remote site and set up and be sufficient with a supply of reagents and diesel fuel, Baker explained. The project was given the go-ahead in February 2013. In November 2013, he said, “That’s when they made the decision to start putting it on the Cape Ray.”

The timeline was short, Baker said, and they couldn’t start from scratch with a new system, so they used a process from the former Aberdeen Chemical Demilitarization Facility, or ABCDF, that had been used a decade ago to neutralize 1,700 tons of mustard – part of the destruction of the United States’ own chemical stockpile.

The entire Syrian stockpile of precursors required to make sarin gas has been destroyed by US experts on board a US neutralizer ship, Pentagon officials have confirmed.

“I am pleased to announce that the crew aboard Cape Ray has completed neutralization of 100 percent of the sarin precursor aboard the ship, which amounts to about 581 metric tons neutralized,” Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said.

Warren added the Cape Ray crew are now in the process of neutralizing 19.8 tons of sulfur mustard and should be completed by the end of August.

Syria agreed to the destruction of its chemical weapons through a US-Russia brokered deal last September. The decision was sparked by a deadly sarin gas attack in August 21 near Damascus that killed hundreds of people. The West blamed President Bashar Assad forces for it, while Damascus accused the rebels of committing that terror act as a provocation.

So, some good news for a change. Go Navy.

a girl and her gun

Pretty girl in her viking costume at the games.

It looked so good and she even got a contract of some kind with L’Oreal.
Pretty good for a girl of 17.


Belgian Axelle Despiegelaere, a 17-year-old beauty who wore her Viking-inspired red and yellow hat and a face paint during the Belgium-Russia World Cup match on June 22, bagged a L’Oreal modeling contract.
She was just there as a fan, as a supporter of her country’s football team, cheering for the Belgian kickers. But little did she know that she was being photographed and shown on TV during the game.

Belgian Axelle Despiegelaere’s photos during the Russia-Belgium group battle with her red and yellow hat and pompoms circulated and created a buzz on the Internet,which sparked interest from the L’Oréal Professionnel team. That interest turned into a modelling contract.

But then the big bad wolf of outrageous fortune made an appearance in the form of another photograph.

A young girl and her gun. Warms the heart.  But not at L’Oreal.

Photo emerged of teenager posing with rifle and a dead animal in Africa
Now she has had contract with L’Oreal cancelled following controversy

Cosmetics giant L’Oreal has severed ties with the Belgian World Cup fan who won a modelling contract after being spotted in the crowd after it emerged she is a fan of big game hunting.

But L’Oreal has confirmed that the modelling contract it awarded her as a result of her new-found fame has already been cancelled after a photo emerged of the teenager posing with a rifle and a dead animal in Africa.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, she wrote on her Facebook page, “Hunting is not a matter of life or death. It’s much more important than that ... this was about 1 year ago ... ready to hunt Americans today haha.”

Obama, Still At Sea


Obama urges against ‘military adventures’

President Obama, in a commencement address at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, signaled a significant shift in U.S. foreign policy—one that pulls back from what he described as “military adventures” while wielding American power in other ways.

The president described the new American foreign policy as one of “collective action” and restraint, deploying unilateral U.S. military force only when the American people are threatened. He outlined his vision a day after announcing his plan for gradually drawing down the U.S. force in Afghanistan once the war formally ends later this year.

“The landscape has changed,” Obama told the graduating class at West Point on Wednesday, citing the end of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

The president took on what he described as “interventionists” from both parties, and said that while “isolationism” is not an option, “U.S. military action cannot be the only—or even primary—component of our leadership in every instance.”

The president advised that crises around the world that don’t directly threaten Americans be met first with non-military options: diplomacy, sanctions and “collective action.”

The president pointed to Syria as one battlefield where allies could work together to ease the crisis. He pledged to work with Congress to “ramp up support” for certain elements in the Syrian opposition who “offer the best alternative to terrorists and a brutal dictator.”

Separately, administration officials told The Associated Press that Obama and his team are weighing sending a limited number of U.S. troops to Jordan as part of a mission to train and equip certain moderate members of the Free Syrian Army.

Isolationist much?

And I’m pretty sure we’ve heard that very dangerous, open ended line about a limited number of military advisers and troops before. Yeah, around 1961 I think it was, to train some of the moderate locals to fight against the insurgency. And look where that got us. [cough cough]

Meanwhile, his One-derfulness’ plan to nip terrorism in the bud is to drop $5 Billion on raggy governments in the lands where jihad comes from. Because we can trust those tinpot dictators to spend the money wisely (Paris real estate is a great investment right now!), to talk peace love and granola to their wild eyed peasants, and to keep the imams in line. ( but wait, wasn’t Obama behind getting rid of the tinpot dictators in Libya and Egypt who had done just that?? ). And of course, once those leaders are bought off this time, they’ll stay bought off forever.

Bought off? Golly how America has gone full circle.
Didn’t we pretty much create our Navy and Marines in the first place because Thomas Jefferson was tired of paying bribes to leaders in that area to keep the peace in the first place? And he then engaged in a different kind of “collective action”?

As early as 1784 Congress followed the tradition of the European shipping powers and appropriated $80,000 as tribute to the Barbary states, directing its ministers in Europe, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, to begin negotiations with them. Trouble began the next year, in July 1785, when Algerians captured two American ships and the dey of Algiers held their crews of twenty-one people for a ransom of nearly $60,000.
When Jefferson became president in 1801 he refused to accede to Tripoli’s demands for an immediate payment of $225,000 and an annual payment of $25,000. The pasha of Tripoli then declared war on the United States. Although as secretary of state and vice president he had opposed developing an American navy capable of anything more than coastal defense, President Jefferson dispatched a squadron of naval vessels to the Mediterranean. As he declared in his first annual message to Congress: “To this state of general peace with which we have been blessed, one only exception exists. Tripoli, the least considerable of the Barbary States, had come forward with demands unfounded either in right or in compact, and had permitted itself to denounce war, on our failure to comply before a given day. The style of the demand admitted but one answer. I sent a small squadron of frigates into the Mediterranean. . . .”

Right. Obama, still at sea, still sailing in circles. Except he turns widdershins when the world needs him to turn deosil.

Twisting Arms The Putin Way

You knew this one was coming, right?

Russia Threatens To Turn Off The Gas

Moscow (AFP) - Russia’s state energy giant Gazprom warned on Monday that it may halt natural gas shipments to Ukraine on June 3 in a move that could impact the supplies of at least 18 EU nations.

Gazprom chief executive Alexei Miller said Ukraine must pay upfront for its June deliveries because of outstanding debts. He added that Kiev had until the morning of June 3 to make the payment “or Ukraine will receive zero cubic metres (of gas) in June,” Interfax reported.

In Putin’s Russia, economy sanctions you!

PS - it’s your tax dollars that will be paying Ukraine’s energy bill. I guess this is what Obama meant by being more flexible after the election, what what?

Last week: Russia orders Ukraine to pre-pay for gas

Europe faced the prospect of imminent energy shortages Thursday after Russia ordered crisis-hit Ukraine to pay upfront for all its natural gas deliveries because of billions of dollars in debts.

The largely-anticipated announcement imperils supplies to a large swathe of the European Union because nearly 15 percent of all Russian gas consumed by the 28-nation bloc transits through Ukraine.

The ex-Soviet nation has refused to meet the deadline in protest over Russia’s decision to nearly double the price it charges its neighbour for gas imports following the February overthrow of Kiev’s Kremlin-backed regime.

Russia’s energy ministry said Ukraine had missed a Wednesday deadline to pay debts worth $3.5 billion (2.5 billion euros) and that all gas sent from June 1 will have to be paid in advance.

“Russia is introducing a pre-payment regime for gas deliveries to Ukraine,” Energy Minister Alexander Novak said in a statement.

President Vladimir Putin had last month warned in a letter to 18 EU nations that Russia would require Ukraine to make pre-payments unless Europe helped cover its debt to Moscow’s government-run natural gas giant Gazprom.

“Russia can no longer—and must not—be the only one carrying the burden of supporting the Ukrainian economy, offering it discounts for gas and forgiving debts,” said Novak.

The energy minister said Russia had “through its subsidies been effectively covering the deficit in Ukraine’s trade with EU member states”.

Muslim war propaganda that only fools and appeasers take at face value

It was 5 in the morning, frankly I have not been exactly at the top of my game, if you will allow me that rather overblown expression.  A bit of ill health (no sympathy please) has me up at five in the morning, the double take of sleeping pills and double dose of wine and then something stronger having no effect. So naturally I came downstairs for a third attempt at something to induce sleep and mask pain, and decided to boot and see what I could find at this hour of the morning.  I find having done so the effort has been worthwhile. Not for sleep but what I found, and anyway the discomfort is now manageable.

As is usual, I have not posted the entire article but leave it to you the reader to follow the link to all of it.

We all know the cure for this world wide disease.  I think we also know we will never see it come about. So while you can, say goodbye and kiss Western ideals and civilization goodbye.  I say that because I see no evidence of mass demonstrations or actions against our enemies, who are, after many years of practice, so much better organized and funded and willing to cause mayhem and on occasion resort to behavior our side seems hesitant to match. 
Beyond that, our side has never that I am aware, targeted the American 5th column and those traitors who aid and make possible the advance of those who would turn the Western world into something it was never meant to be.

My time in your world could be short due to age and health, so I won’t see it or be here long enough to see if I’ve been right or wrong.
But you will. And I wish you luck.

Islam’s Religious War With Everyone

By Daniel Greenfield
Frontpage Magazine
Posted 2014-04-22 22:01 GMT

Few divides are as impossible to bridge as those of religion. You either believe or you don’t.


When it comes to Islam, non-Muslims are expected to take its goodwill on faith. If you believe your eyes and ears, Islam and violence go together like peanut butter and jelly. But if you believe Muslims and their spin doctors with academic degrees, Muslims are the victims of other religions.

If Muslims fighting Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists are the victims of non-Muslims, what are we to make of Muslims fighting other Muslims in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq? Religious civil wars make it hard to believe that Muslims are the victims of other religions instead of the authors of their own violence.

Religions have a long history of not getting along with one another, but there is only one religion that has never gotten along with any other religion, is engaging in a religious war with every religion that exists, with atheists who have no religion, and even with its own co-religionists.

Is all this violence someone else’s fault? Or is it Islam’s fault?

Muslim hostility to Christians and Jews is not a phenomenon that began with the modern State of Israel or American foreign policy.

Muslims have warred with Christians and Jews as minorities and persecuted them as majorities. Academic apologists claim that Muslim hostility toward Christians derived from an ongoing conflict, but at no time during the history of Islam until the twentieth century did the Jews have a functioning state.

Israel has conveniently become the focus and explanation for Muslim hostility toward Jews, but that fails to explain over a thousand years of Muslim hatred and persecution ... long before Herzl or the IDF.

Why did Muslims persecute and kill Jews long before Zionism was even a word? For the same reason that they killed Christians.

Islam hated Judaism and Christianity from the start. The Koran urges Muslims not to befriend Jews or Christians (Koran 5:51) speaks of “enmity and hatred” with Christians (Koran 5:15) and the Jews (Koran 5:65) who are also to be cursed. The Jews are accused of “creating disorder” (Koran 5:65) and Christians are accused of worshiping their priests (Koran 9:31). The Jews and Christians believe in evil things (Koran 4:52) and Allah’s curse will be upon them (Koran 9:30).

Muslims don’t hate and kill Jews because of Israel. They hate Israel because it is Jewish.

September 11 was part of an ongoing war against Christians dating back over a thousand years.

The real reason why a Muslim carries out a terrorist attack in New York or Boston is the same reason why a church gets burned in Egypt or bombed in Syria. It’s the same reason why teenage British girls get raped and why the Christian population of the Middle East has shrunk from a quarter to a tenth.

Everything else is just Muslim war propaganda that only fools and appeasers take at face value.

When Muslims run out of non-Muslims to persecute continue

Not Exactly Pravda

“In Military ‘Rout’, Russia Seizes 51 Ukranian Warships”

Well, sorta kinda ...

[Kiev (aka Kyiv), Ukrains] In its invasion and annexation of Crimea, Russia has seized 51 vessels belonging to the Ukrainian navy, according to information compiled by Dmitry Tymchuk, director of the Center of Military and Political Research in Kyiv.

Among the Ukrainian vessels reportedly captured by the Russians are submarine Zaporizhia, management ship Slavutych, landing ship Konstantin Olshansky, landing ship Kirovohrad, minesweeper Chernihiv and minesweeper Cherkasy.

The Cherkasy was the last of the ships to have been overtaken following weeks of threats and ultimatums to surrender. It was finally chased down and overtaken by the Russian navy on March 25 after failing to slip past a blockade of two ships intentionally sunk by the Russians to trap it and other vessels in a narrow gulf, keeping them from escaping into the Black Sea.

Right. Well, you heard about the first ship sunk right here at BMEWS, the old Soviet cruiser Ochakov. What you didn’t hear, was that a short while later the Russkies sank another one, a little patrol boat or fishing vessel, to better seal off that opening. Video of that small ship blowing up and sinking, here. I can not verify that 3 ships were scuttled, not 2, but I have read that only once, in the Moscow Times. So, is Pravda, da o nyet?. Regardless ... all the ships were put down to block off Lake Donuslav.

And today’s “military rout” was the “battle” to capture the little minesweeper Cherkasy, which consisted of flash-bangs and smoke grenades from the Russians countered by water cannons from the Ukrainians. In the end, the Ukranians slagged the engines of their boat and gave up, after a good time was had by all, playing boats in the puddle with the big kid down the block.

So the 51 “wessels” [ I couldn’t resist playing ens. Chekov from Star Trek for a moment there ], were the same bunch that got bottled up 2 weeks ago. Apparently Cherkasy has been running around in the lake ever since, avoiding direct contact and thus capture.

During the operation there was an explosion on board the ship, which was in an inlet called Donuslav Lake, that apparently damaged its engines.

“The Cherkasy has been taken over and as the engine was damaged during the raid, it had to be towed away by a tug boat to the anchorage,” Ukrainian Navy spokesman Vladislav Seleznyov said.

There were no injuries and the crew remained on board until the morning, when they went ashore.

During the takeover, which began on Tuesday evening, the minesweeper used water cannon in an effort to repel the Russian forces who had approached the Cherkasy in speedboats. “Russians threw stun grenades and fired small arms, apparently in the air,” a Navy source said.

Russian forces have used similar tactics to seize ships and military bases from the last remaining Ukrainian troops in Crimea in recent days as part of Russia’s largely bloodless annexation of the region.

Kiev, which calls Russia’s acquisition of Crimea illegal, ordered its remaining forces to withdraw for their own safety on Monday, but not all troops have yet left the Black Sea peninsula and some ships have been prevented from leaving.

On Monday, the Cherkasy attempted without success to break to the open sea through a blockade at the entrance to the inlet. The Russian Navy blocked the route earlier this month by scuttling three hulks in the channel.

The Ukrainian Navy at large is now down to one 404 foot light cruiser, one light PT boat patrol craft, an LST style small landing craft, a barge, and 3 tiny scientific research diving vessels.

There have been doubts about which way the Sahaydachniy’s captain leans politically, but for now “the pride of the Ukrainian Navy” remains “at large”, even though you can locate the ship, docked, in Sevastapol on (44.614769, 33.568146). So, go figure.

Obama sends special ops force to where? uganda. hunt for war criminal. why’s it our concern?

Why bother about Barack?
By Peter McKay
Daily Mail

Cracking down on Russian oligarchs here who support President Vladimir Putin is a popular idea with many Londoners.
Not because of Crimea, though: there’s jealousy of their reputed great wealth, as well as suspicion about its provenance.

I don’t know anybody who believes that (a) hounding oligarchs will have any positive effect on Putin’s behaviour and (b) the Government will target any of them in a position to affect adversely our own business interests in Russia.

We are protesting about Crimea and warning about further Russian encroachments simply because America requires us to do so.
This is to help save Obama’s face after his ‘pivot’ to Asia, and away from Europe, encouraging Putin to believe his reclamation of Crimea would be unopposed.

Do we need to bother what Obama thinks any more? He’s so low in the water now that he’s predicting his party, the Democrats, will get ‘clobbered’ in the mid-term elections come November and might lose control of Congress.

If so, ‘the President might as well play golf every day’, says a Washington observer.

And speak of the devil ….

Found in the news is a blurb about Mr. O. sending some of our military to Uganda.
Cos apparently 5,000 Afrikan regional troops called a “task force”, are not enough.

Afraid not. They need Obama to send in military aircraft along with 150 Special Operations troops, and 100 Special Forces.  Now what the difference between em isn’t anything I’ve worked out. Since all are special ….  ?

Anyway … all of this to capture a very evil guy named Joseph Kony, who truly is a bad guy of the first order.  I think he’s wanted by an international court. So, are they and the Africans gonna reimburse Uncle Sam?  Don’t be silly. Of course they aren’t.
The biggest question I have frankly, is, since all those kind of folk pretty much look the same …. how will they know him when or even if they find him? 

I suppose the hunt can only be carried out in daylight hours.

not you usual bowl of eye candy

You won’t see her in any movies at your neighborhood theater.


And she is not a runway model


She is ...

Nina Shtanski

So what? Never heard of her.

Well as it happens, she is head of international relations for a tiny state you could make a Marx Bros. film with.  Although it might be a tad more serious come to think of it.

‘The Russian world is uniting’: Model minister of breakaway region urges Putin to make her country his next conquest in wake of Crimea takeover to alarm of Nato

· Nina Shtanski said: ‘The people’s wish for unity cannot be stopped’

· She is foreign minister of Russian-speaking region Transdniestria

· Shtanski is calling for a similar takeover of her breakaway republic

By Will Stewart

The glamorous foreign minister of a breakaway region of Moldova is calling on Vladimir Putin to make her country his next conquest in eastern Europe.


Few may have heard of Transdniestria, the unofficial and fictitious-sounding statelet whose head of international relations is 36-year-old Nina Shtanski.

However, senior Western figures are alarmed that following the annexation of Crimea it is step two in a Kremlin masterplan to redraw the frontiers of Europe.

This top diplomat in staunchly pro-Russian Transdniestria, who has a penchant for revealing black dresses, is gushing in her praise of Putin’s takeover of the Black Sea peninsula.

She openly invites him to make the same move in her landlocked territory of 509,000 people, wedged between strife-torn Ukraine and Moldova.

‘We are pleased to say that the outcome of the Crimean referendum almost fully coincides with the results of the Transdniestrian referendum of 17 September 2006, when over 97 per cent of voters chose independence and the prospect of voluntary unification with Russia,’ she said in a statement.

‘The obvious match of the will expressed by people in Crimea and Transdniestria demonstrates that the Russian World is uniting and the people’s wish for unity cannot be stopped.’

Russian troops are assembling on Ukraine’s eastern border with Russia. An annexation of Transdniestria would be a significant expansion of Russian territory.

A Russian force of 1,300 troops - currently on high alert - is already on the ground as ‘peacekeepers’ in the self-declared state - which boasts the hammer and sickle on its mainly red flag.

Last week there were reports of plain-clothed Russian FSB secret services agents flooding into breakaway territory.

Under international law, the unofficial country is part of Romanian-speaking Moldova, but after a war as the USSR broke up, Ms Shtanski and the local population have never accepted rule by Moldova.

They are now bent on being formally integrated as a region of the Kremlin, which has long subsidised this outpost.

The fear for Western military planners is that after taking Transdniestria, Putin could then seize an arc from there to Crimea, sealing off the southern Black Sea regions of Ukraine.

In the process, he would grab another old Russian jewel, the port city of Odessa, and cripple Kiev’s economy.

Cork U

Donuslaved !!

Donuslaved: verb A term that describes an action that cuts an opponent off from significant resources and tactical options. cf Vladmir Putin, The Ukrainian Crisis, 2014

Crimean Penninsula: On the western side of that bit of land that sticks out into the Black Sea, the one Western people with a sense of history should always think of as Sevastopol, runs the river Donuzlav. In 1961 a huge breakwater was built across the mouth of the bay, turning the river into one of the largest freshwater lakes in Europe. It quickly became a prime vacation spot, a wildlife sanctuary, fish farms and shellfish beds, and a perfect place for Ukraine to park its Black Sea navy. A deepwater opening in the middle of the breakwater allows capital ships to sail through, and in the past a small naval airbase guarded the gateway. The base is still there, hardly a kilometer away, runways and docks just waiting to be used.

Today, no matter what happens with the Ukraine Crisis, their navy is out of the game. Without firing a single shot, Putin effectively just sank the whole thing.

image image

Perhaps the old western expression “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” doesn’t translate into Ukrainian. And it looks like “Pearl Harbor” doesn’t either.


The Russian Navy Ochakov Kara-class cruiser was sunk last night to block the Ukrainian Navy ships deployed in Novoozerne, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence said in a press release today.

The information was confirmed by the Ukrainian military of the South Naval Base who were observing the operation.

Yevpatoria, Ukraine: An anti-submarine boat may have been the first casualty of the Russian incursion into Crimea, but it was hardly an act of violence, much less war: The Russian navy sank one of its own, junked vessels to create an obstacle, a Ukrainian official said on Wednesday.

Ukraine Defence Ministry spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Alexei Mazepa said Russian sailors pulled the anti-submarine vessel Ochakov out of a naval junkyard and sank it in the straits that connect the Black Sea with a body of water known as Donuzlav Lake. He said the act was intended to prevent Ukrainian navy ships from leaving a nearby base and going to sea.

As the Ukrainian-Russian rift over Crimea intensifies, a new tactic has emerged: intentionally sinking a ship to prevent Ukrainian government ships from leaving a southern port. The vessel in question, reported to be a Kara-class cruiser. Russians (or at least Russian sympathizers) towed the ship to the entrance to Donuzlav and sank it.

The act of sinking a ship on purpose is called scuttling. Navies typically do this to prevent enemies from getting their hands on the hardware. Doing it in a specific spot to create a blockade is something different—we’re going to call it ”strategic scuttling.”

No, I’m going to call it brilliant. So brilliant that it deserves to become a verb in its own right. Sure, it’s been done in the past. But as a non-violent “act of war, not really” that can stop a non-war from becoming one, while really tipping the scales for your side? I think this may be a first. Genius.

My only surprise is that they didn’t stage the thing as an accident in the middle of the night. Then he’d even have plausible deniability. “Who me? Nyet! Boatski sinksi! Is accident!” But then he’d have to make some token effort to try and remove it. No, this way is better. In your face comrades. And now everyone gets a fresh reminder of who The Man is. And it ain’t Obama.

And Its Over, Over There?

Crimean Parliament Votes To Join Russia

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine (Reuters) - Crimea’s parliament voted to join Russia on Thursday and its Moscow-backed government set a referendum on the decision in 10 days’ time in a dramatic escalation of the crisis over the Ukrainian Black Sea peninsula.

The sudden acceleration of moves to bring Crimea, which has an ethnic Russian majority and has effectively been seized by Russian forces, formally under Moscow’s rule came as European Union leaders held an emergency summit groping for ways to pressure Russia to back down and accept mediation.

U.S. President Barack Obama took the first steps to punish Russians and Ukrainians involved in what he called “threatening the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine”, ordering the freezing of their U.S. assets and a ban on travel to the United States.

The names on the blacklist were not immediately made public but a U.S. official said they did not include Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Seriously? Is that the best you can do Barry? Geex, what a dweeb. And they never saw this coming. That’s the real head shaker here. Maybe it’s time we flushed the State Department and started all over again.

In the long run though, I expect the blame for all of this will fall on the EU. If they’d let Ukraine join, this probably would not have happened. On the other hand, Putin has all of Europe’s nuts in the wringer; Russia supplies a huge amount of their natural gas, and he has his hand on the valve and he’s already shown that he’s not afraid to twist his wrist when they get uppity or step out of line. And with the US essentially replacing the military for most of these countries for 60+ years, they’ve all enjoyed the well padded benefits of Socialism’s wealth redistribution while hardly spending a cent on defense. And now they’ve got nothing to stop the bear when he gets cranky. On the third hand, Ukraine is a complicated situation. The USSR moved huge populations of ethnic Russians to all her satellite nations, and those folks have been there for generations. Some have assimilated, many have not. But when a newly independent Ukraine broke away from the dying Soviet mega-state, one of the first things they did was ban Russian as an official language. Problem was, they couldn’t get all those imported people to “go home”, since after several generations Ukraine was their home. So now they’re third class people, pushed down to the bottom of society, enclaved and isolated. With all the brewing resentment that entails. This will not turn out good.

My take: at best, if calmer heads can keep too many bullets from flying, Ukraine will be split into West Ukraine and The Crimean. At best West Ukraine will have river access to the Black Sea, which will become nearly their private lake. It’s not like they haven’t been trying for this for nearly 200 years, right Britain?

Connecticut: Firearms Confiscation Plan On Hold: 2/3 Of Police Force Is On The List Too

Connecticut has been making news due to their hastily passed gun registration laws. According to some sources as few as 15% of gun owners have actually registered their firearms. News Blogs have been warning state officials are talking about mass confiscations of the unregistered firearms.

Plans for these confiscations hit a snag when a legislative intern dared to ask a question. “Who will be going door to door to take all the guns away?” asked the 21-year-old college senior.

Reportedly multiple people in the room in the most sarcastic voices they could muster said “the police”.

The unnamed intern then pointed at the list and said, “my dad’s name is on the list, and he is the police chief. I see three other names on this list of family members, all cops.”

Within hours a print off of all sworn Law Enforcement officers in the state was obtained. Comparisons of the list of gun owners who failed to comply with registration requirements and sworn LEOs showed a startling figure. Just over 68% of Connecticut cops had failed to register firearms according to the new law.

An anonymous source in the Governors office said lawmakers were dumbfounded.
So now Connecticut is in little quagmire. The powers that be are making all kinds of threats, but there is no one to follow through on the threats.

Dumbfounded? Really? I’d say those lawmakers are not just stupid, but willfully blinded by their own beliefs.

On the other hand, since when has total hypocrisy ever stopped those in power or with badges from doing whatever they wanted?

On the third hand, if the state already had a list of who owned what guns, then why did they need to make the people go through the BS of registration? Was that just an exercise in brow beating, and object lesson to remind the plebes who was in charge?

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
