UN committee imposes sanctions
on Nigeria´s Boko Haram

BBC News [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 5/23/2014 12:42:13 AM

The UN Security Council has approved sanctions against the Nigerian militant group Boko Haram, five weeks after it kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls. It will now be added to a list of al-Qaeda-linked organisations subject to an arms embargo and asset freeze. US envoy Samantha Power said it was an "important step" in support of efforts to "defeat Boko Haram and hold its murderous leadership accountable". It was earlier blamed for the deaths of 27 people in a north-eastern village. Residents said gunmen had shot dead farm workers in Chikongudo, set fire to nearly all the homes there and stolen food in

Comments:
Ms. Power says an embargo is an "important step." No more arms shipments and an assets freeze for them.

Ms. Power should know there´s a black-humor response to people who stash things in case of emergency and ask their friends what they´re doing to survive a calamity. It´s, "Why should I? With enough guns and ammo I can take what I´ll need when TSHTF." Haha.

Note that BH has just destroyed a farming village, stealing all its food and killing many of the farmers. Obviously, we need a hashtag saying, "#NoCookiesForNaughtyBokoHaram."

OK so the UN will impose a trade embargo on BH. No more beer, bacon, Playboy or Penthouse magazines, and no more gay men´s porn will be allowed to be imported.

And we all know the great success that sanctions have been in the past.

I´m thinking that ´Sanctions´ are the 21st Century version of ´The Strongly Worded Letter´. All show, no go.

Trojan Horse debate:

If I have learnt one thing working with children as a teacher, a volunteer and, more recently, a parent, it’s that what children want above all else is to fit in. The desire not to be different must be hard-wired, so urgent is the need of your average nine-year-old to have the same pencil case as every other nine-year-old. Individuality, much prized in adult life, is abhorred by our conservative juniors, who crave acceptance as the thirsty crave water. “Fitting in” is braided into the DNA of every child, regardless of creed or colour. When the deep, resonant bell of

The jubilant reaction of many Palestinians to the kidnapping of three Israeli teenage boys has been met in the West with a bit of a shrug. The official daily PA newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida has published cartoons mocking the three students and celebrating their capture. The Fatah Facebook page featured a cartoon of three rats dangling from a line. Sweets have been handed out on the streets (a traditional gesture of joy and celebration). Many children have been photographed by their parents, holding up three fingers and smiling. An internet campaign gathers pace and “popular support for the abduction has continued

Iraq crisis:
Isis allies ´turn on jihadists´ as 17

Sunni militants who fought together to capture swathes of Iraqi territory have turned their weapons on each other during clashes in Kirkuk province that cost 17 lives, according to reports. The fighting erupted on Friday evening between Isis and the Army of the Men of the Naqshbandiyah Order (JRTN) in Hawija, in Kirkuk province, sources told AFP. There were differing accounts as to what sparked the firefight, which is a potential sign of the fraying of the Sunni insurgent alliance that has overrun vast stretches of territory north of Baghdad in less than two weeks. One security official said JRTN fighters

Iraq crisis: Shia militia show

Thousands of Shia militia loyal to the powerful cleric Moqtada al-Sadr have paraded through the streets of Baghdad, raising sectarian tensions amid continued fighting in areas of Iraq. The cleric, whose Mehdi Army fought the US in Iraq for years, had called for a military parade across the country. Correspondents say the show of force will be seen as a very disturbing development by the Baghdad government. Sunni extremists have seized control of large swathes of territory across Iraq. On Saturday, the militants--led by jihadist group Isis--were reported to have seized a strategically important border crossing to Syria, near the town of Qaim, killing

Court confirms Egypt Muslim
Brotherhood death sentences

An Egyptian court has confirmed death sentences for 183 Muslim Brotherhood supporters accused of a 2013 attack on a police station, lawyers say. A judge had recommended the death penalty for the 683 defendants, in a widely-criticised mass trial in April. Mohammed Badie, leader of the banned group, was among those whose sentences were upheld. Appeals are now likely. The military-installed government has sentenced at least 1,000 of its opponents since December. Authorities have cracked down harshly on Islamists since former President Mohammed Morsi, who belongs to the Muslim Brotherhood, was removed by the military in July 2013 following mass

When the Chinese premier visited London this week he was greeted with an honour guard, a Downing Street reception and a meeting with the Queen. But one aspect of Li Keqiang’s welcome fell somewhat short in the eyes of Chinese officials – the red carpet rolled out for his arrival at Heathrow. After plans for Mr Li’s visit were shown to the Beijing government, aides complained that the carpet leading from the steps of his plane was not long enough. ‘They saw a diagram of the arrangements at Heathrow and complained that the carpet was three metres too short,’ said one of

Margaret Thatcher and the

The problem with socialism,” said Margaret Thatcher, “is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” It is one of her many aphorisms that so irritate the Left because it not only has the merit of being true but is provably so: just look at the record of the Labour government. It is more than a political slogan, however: it captures the essence of her belief in individual liberty and disdain for state paternalism. Her ambition was to give people back control over their own lives. Yet while this view of the world is one that many today take

Australia to stop ´killer´ jihadists

Australian jihadists fighting overseas who are "trained killers" and "hate our way of life" should be stopped from returning home and detained if they do, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said on Friday. Australia has concerns that its citizens are fighting alongside Sunni militants in Iraq and Syria, including with the radical Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group. [Snip] "And if they do come back into our country they are taken into detention because what we can´t have is trained killers--who hate our way of life, who hate us--making mischief with the potential to cause mayhem in our country."

The threat to Britain

Across the Middle East and Africa, it is an uncomfortable fact that the cries of jihad accompanying the latest attack or terrorist outrage are often uttered in a British accent. Al-Shabaab, militants who ransacked towns in northern Kenya this week and left 60 people dead, were led by a white man speaking “fluent British English”, according to witnesses. In the Commons yesterday, David Cameron estimated that 400 British Muslims are currently in Syria or Iraq, mainly attached to the Isis organisation marching on Baghdad. “The people in that regime, as well as trying to take territory, are also planning to

The flashbang went off with a deafening BOOM, and green smoke began to waft through the air. Bystanders yelled for help as emergency responders rushed to the scene, walkie-talkies crackling. There wasn´t actually a terrorist attack in the Lowcountry on Thursday morning--it was all just a drill, but what if it weren´t? That´s why more than 20 public safety organizations, hospitals and local and state government agencies joined forces for an annual emergency response exercise. This year, instead of a natural disaster, the focus was a terrorism incident reminiscent of last year´s Boston Marathon bombings.

There are three things that the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia strives for above all others: peace, stability and security, for the international community, for our region, and for our country and our people, whether they are old or young, men or women, Sunni or Shia. These are the cornerstones of our government and they lie at the foundation of our thinking. The escalating and alarming situation in Iraq is of serious concern. These are our neighbours, our friends, and we watch with distress as this terrible situation escalates next to us. As our foreign minister, HRH Prince Saud al

It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits, and stunned Americans say, “That´s outrageous!” “He can´t do that!” “No way!” “It´s against federal law!” “They have no legal authority to force us to do that!” These comments are in response to the daily unprecedented out-of-control tyranny handed down by Obama and his operatives. We are talking arrogance with a capital A coming out of the Obama administration. For example: the GOP was moving too slow in caving to Obama´s amnesty scheme, so Obama said, Heck with it, I´ll bypass everyone and make it happen. Obama sent a

WASHINGTON -- The commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service refused to apologize to Congress for losing e-mails related to its targeting of conservative groups, saying it´s still attempting to recover the data and it´s too soon to know how many e-mails are missing. "I don´t think an apology is owed," Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways and Means Committee. "Every e-mail has been preserved that we have." In his most contentious hearing since becoming commissioner six months ago, Koskinen testified about efforts the IRS has made to recover e-mails that were lost when Lois Lerner´s computer hard drive crashed

According to the Daily Beast, O´Reilly told the audience, “I’m not Rush Limbaugh or Al Franken, where everything has to fit into my worldview… I’m a fact-based guy.

President Obama told his Mexican counterpart in a phone call Thursday that immigrants crossing into the U.S. illegally won’t qualify for legalized status or deferred deportation, including children. The White House said Mr. Obama and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto discussed “a regional strategy” to address the surge of unaccompanied children coming from Central America, through Mexico, to the U.S. With thousands of children trying to enter the U.S. illegally in recent months, Vice President Joseph R.

Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer apparently doesn’t think Southern men are manly. Following Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor’s stunning loss last week, Mr. Schweitzer initial response, according to a profile in The National Journal, was, “men in the South, they are a little effeminate.” “They just have effeminate mannerisms,” Mr. Schweitzer said. “If you were just a regular person, you turned on the TV, and you saw Eric Cantor talking, I would say—and I’m fine with gay people, that’s all right—but my gaydar is 60-70 percent.” “But he’s not, I think, so I don’t know.

The U.S. is leading by example in promoting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) rights at home and around the world, Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday. He said the federal government recognizes same-sex marriages of foreign diplomats stationed in the U.S., and it expects all other countries to do the same in their treatment of U.S. personnel deployed abroad. “Let me be clear: We oppose any effort by any country to deny visas for spouses of American staff,” he said. “It’s discriminatory, it’s unacceptable, it has no place in the 21st century.”

The Obama administration’s claim to have been surprised by the wave of children flooding over out borders may turn out to be another political lie of the year. Sundance of Conservative Treehouse noticed a very peculiar advertisement: On January 29th of this year, the federal government posted an advertisement seeking bids for a vendor contract to handle “Unaccompanied Alien Children“. Not just any contract mind you, but a very specific contract – for a very specific number of unaccompanied minors: 65,000. • Why would DHS and ICE be claiming “surprise” by the current influx of unaccompanied minors on the border

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continues to tour the nation, promoting her new book, Hard Choices, and a possible 2016 candidacy. Her book tour, filled with gaffes and missteps, has lagged and perhaps failed to live up to expectations. But that´s not all. Her book, when compared to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin´s political memoir, Going Rogue, has woefully underperformed in sales. And it’s pretty cut and dried. Palin´s book, which was released the same year President Obama moved into the White House, sold approximately 496,000 copies in its first week of release, according to figures cited by the New York Times.
