Sent in over the transom today– Ex-DIA chief Flynn goes into opposition against Obama Administration on ISIS: It is striking to me how many security officials have gone public against this administration after leaving. This is not a normal pattern, and by this point amounts to a non-partisan indictment of how Obama’s White House has dealt with a variety of national security issues. Among other things, it makes me appreciate the restraint that the current chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, must be exercising on a daily basis. Well, maybe they’re disgusted at what they see, huh? […]
(Posting for DaveO, who is incommunicado tonight.) SK asks the question. The foreign policy infrastructure, the human rights NGOs and the self-important scribblers who presume to tell the world what is important in the pages of the New York Times and the Washington Post have fought hard to avoid connecting the killings by the Islamic State in Nigeria to the killings by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. And they have fought hardest of all to avoid connecting these killings to the thousands murdered in the streets of New York and the latest bodies strewn about Paris. The killings […]
Over at Sic Semper Tyrannis there are three great articles on Islamic Terrorism in Europe, here, here, and here.
Je suis Charlie, indeed! CHARLIE MARTEL. Heh heh heh. In a similar vein, here’s a modest proposal from a chap that Charles Martel and others like him might see as a kindred soul. (Gasp! Who dares to say such things about the Religion of Peace!) *** PS: Baisez les musulmans. Consult a translator if you don’t parlez that Francaise too good. And a merci beaucoup to WRSA while we’re at it.
For those of you have wondered why we haven’t had much to say directly about the Paris outrages– well, what else is there to say? I don’t mean to be flippant, but it can’t have come as a surprise that Mohammedans go on murderous rampages, or that political correctness in the West has prevented (some of) us from being able to see the dangers ahead, or the stark fact that we are in a war. Yes, we will have more to say and more commentary to point you to as the dust settles and facts become clearer. For now, though, […]
What’s that? No, you say? Hmm. Might want to think again, because increasingly we don’t have a choice. Contrary to popular misconception, Islam does not mean peace but rather means submission to the commands of Allah alone. Therefore, Muslims do not believe in the concept of freedom of expression, as their speech and actions are determined by divine revelation and not based on people’s desires. To hell with that heathen savage. Farnam weighs in, and nails it again: Evidence we have so far indicates a planned, not spontaneous, attack, complete with pre-attack surveillance and, unlike Mumbai and Kenya, there was […]
So says Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. This speech is a truly remarkable for its direct assault on the heretofore unaccountable Muslim clerisy. The speech made by Egypt’s latest military strongman ensures he won’t die peacefully in his sleep of old age, but that said, the implications are enormous. Raymond Ibrahim provided the translation, which was picked up by Roger Simon at Pajamas Media. Michael Ledeen, also of PJ Media, notes the deafening silence. Key graph from Raymond Ibrahim’s translation: I say and repeat again that we are in need of a religious revolution. You, imams, are responsible before Allah. The entire world, I […]
Annnnd, there you have it. Sixty-three percent of me says it’s going to go downhill real fast. Thirty-one percent says no, the Afghans will pull it out in their own strangely endearing hippity-hop/mob-stop way. The remaining six percent is undecided. Either way, that’s it. For now. We’ll see what the future holds.
From the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence [sic], for your review and comment. (Here’s some not-so-fast criticism from someone in the know. And this, too. And THIS!) War is an ugly business, and it’s not for the faint of heart. What, now?
Happy Thanksgiving to all, especially those who have to put the tray down and grab the binos… (Lifted from FB.)
