Low Intensity Deux!
20 Aug 2011 4:13 pm Courtney Messerschmidt
Talk about psychic – the horrific terror attacks against Little Satan emanating from Aegypt’s Sinai prove way more than the myth of Writ of State – it also makes the case that Low Intensity conflict can get way more bigger and xform into High Intensity conflict.
An asymmetrical combined arms attack launched by the creepy sounding al-Naser Salah ad-Din Brigades (the self proclaimed Military Wing of the Popular Resistance Committee ) used commando type machine gunners as well as light arty – mortars in fact.
The world’s very first freely …View More...

As best understood – Sudan’s chief exports are refugees fleeing misery projection, genocide, slavery, intolerance and a super suck of a self imposed 7th century mindset.
Since seizing power in a coup d’etat eons past – Sudan’s Field Marshal President For Life Omar Bashir (the world’s only sitting Head of State indicted for war crimes and crimes against humanity) has actually been a long time fan of tormenting his own ppl and since June 5th this year has amped up visiting violence within his Sovereignity Dodge proof borders with tons of:

Writ of State!
The ancient Westphalian concept can often be dumbed down to mean only l’etat has the monopoly on violence ( and you know THAT means lol ). In the new millennium voltiguer, conscript and professional armies, police and militaries are the nation/state’s instrument of choice in full filling certain statecraft crafts.
Unexceptional exceptions to sovereignty au courant include unfree and /or unfun nation states that for what ever reasons – cannot seem to impose the nat’l will – Land of the Pure is a good example.

For the unhiply helpless (it’s true – there are bunches to go ’round – just check the commentary here sometime – shocking…) to mack or macking is a term au courant from the military term to Make A Connection (all’s fair in love and war, nicht wahr) as in courting game (a measure of smoooothness).

While We Celebrated, Obama Sneaked Terrorist Into US Courts on July 4
16 Jul 2011 11:46 am Warner Todd Huston
Did you know that a suspected Somali terrorist was sneaked into a U.S. criminal court in New York City over the July 4th holiday? Most people don’t. While we were all distracted by celebrating our Independence Day President Obama was sneaking foreign terrorists into our civil court system instead of taking him to Guantanamo.
A few weeks ago, Reuters reported that Somali terrorist Ahmed Abdulkadir Warsame was brought to New York City to face criminal charges in our home-based court system on July 4th, yet.
Warsame was captured in April in the …

Would Ottomans Do Syria?
13 Jul 2011 12:54 pm Courtney Messerschmidt
Since the traditional despot remedial activity in Syria seems to be an endless sexercise in futility (aren’t they all? Why even tolerate their existence?) and a destabilizing factor in regional stability – What if – the Ottomans decided to do Syria?
GsGf’s Ottomanic expert Dr Soner Çağaptay (Oh! He got game bay bee!) shares re estabbing the ancient Imperium would be totally off the hook y’all!

Chicago: Two Anti-American Conferences Held on Independence Day
5 Jul 2011 12:56 pm Warner Todd Huston
While patriotic Chicagoans attended parades, BBQs and otherwise celebrated our Independence Day holiday — and while Democrats stayed home and brooded — two of the most anti-American ideologies imaginable met to plot their revenge on the USA.
Not only did representatives of these two ideologies meet, but they met in the same town, on the same dates, and right across the street from each other. How’s that for kismet?
Over the July Fourth weekend, radical Islamists met at the Rosemont Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois for their 48th Annual Islamic Society …

Suriya al- Kubra!
Syria – punches far above her weight class in diplopolititary deals. Instead of cool stuff like Hooters, literacy rates off the charts or creating advanced avionics – Bashar Bay Bee follows poppa Assad’s script utilizing asymmetrical assets creating a slave trading Syria, abusing Palestinians as a strategic minority resource, fiddling about with new clear WMD witchcraft, hanging with the most wanted terrorists in the world while maybe or maybe not enabling official enemies like Hiz’B’Allah with wmd delivery systems and frightened of Facebook.
So, since the …

Obama Puts Israel on ‘State Supporters of Terror’ List, Then Opens Diplomatic Relations With Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt
1 Jul 2011 12:36 pm Warner Todd Huston
Obama’s is one of the most disastrous foreign policies of any president ever. His latest outrage is the dual absurdities of, on one hand putting Israel on a list of state sponsors of terrorism, while on the other hand opening a dialog with and bestowing diplomatic legitimacy upon the terrorists of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
This is the schizophrenic mess that Obama’s anti-western centric foreign policy ideas have created. It shouldn’t be much of a surprise, though. Upon becoming President Obama almost immediately launched into a series of

They are Great Satan’s all weather killer drones.
Now that it’s official COIN has been short changed in AFPAK – drones alone remain the “Only Game In Town”and are reproducing at a wonderfully crunk exponential rate!

Delta Airlines: Anti-Soldier, Anti-Jew, Anti-Christian, but Now Pro Racist Muslims
24 Jun 2011 11:10 am Warner Todd Huston
I think Delta Airlines should change its name to Omega Airlines because at this point it is the last airline that I’ll ever fly. Not only did Delta try to charge our returning soldiers thousands of dollars to check their bags as they came back from the wars, now the airlines has intertwined itself with Saudi Arabia airlines and have agreed to discriminate against Jews and Christians because of it.
USA Today reported early on Thursday that Delta Airlines would be bowing to Saudi Arabia’s oppressive and racist entry laws by …

Obama: Who Needs Victory When We Can Negotiate With The TahleeBahn?
22 Jun 2011 9:41 pm Warner Todd Huston
President Barack Obama came before the American people tonight to unleash his latest campaign speech disguised as a foreign policy address. It was a presentation that even Politico calls “boring and predictable, balanced to please critics,” and one that “did not change the debate about the war.” But, one thing does seem like news. Obama never used the word victory and he also said we’d negotiate with the Taliban – an enemy he annoyingly insists on calling the Tahleebahn.
One singular theme emerged from this speech. Apparently, to President Obama, “victory” …

Everybody knows about the Nakbah – essentially a land grab by Little Satan’s neighboring nation states that went horribly wrong – granting Little Satan even more real estate!

Obama Bombs Bombing Libya
15 Jun 2011 2:43 pm Rachel Alexander
Obama has bungled hawkish military action in Libya so badly that even Republicans now appear to be opposing military engagement. While many people have doubts about intervening in the “Arab spring” uprisings sweeping the Middle East, there are a couple of despotic tyrants that most Americans agree must be removed. Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi is one of them. It would not have been difficult for Obama to have obtained the support of Congress to take military action complying with the War Powers resolution of 1973, because Republicans usually vote hawkish on …View More...
