Saudi Arabia places 30,000 soldiers on
its border in the wake of ISIS threat
after 2,500 Iraqi soldiers quit their
posts along the boundary

Daily Mail [UK], by John Hall

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/3/2014 6:40:06 AM

Saudi Arabia has placed 30,000 soldiers on its northern border after 2,500 Iraqi soldiers quit their posts, leaving the country open to the threat of a lightning advance by ISIS militants. King Abdullah ordered all necessary measures to protect the kingdom against potential ´terrorist threats´ as the possibility of ISIS taking yet more territory in the Middle East appeared to increase. Saudi Arabia--which is the world´s top oil exporter--shares a 500-mile border with Iraq, where Sunni insurgents have seized numerous towns and cities in a campaign to establish an Islamic state which has been condemned as too brutal even by

Comments:
Perhaps I shouldn´t compare the influx of ISIS invaders to the influx of invaders on our own border, but it does come to mind. I will say it´s good to see a country´s leader acting incisively and rapidly in the face of a serious threat to the whole country.

Maybe other leaders will take notice . . . .

1. The possiblity that 2,500 Iraqi troops just deserted their posts must intrigue Obama.. "Val Jar, why can´t we trade those deserters for the 130 terrorists I want to free from Guantsnamo? Would be even bigger than my Bowe Bergdahl swap. We could even invite the parents of the 2,500 deserters to the WH for a gala on July 4th. Oh, yeah, they´re Iraqis deserters. Never mind.

2. Why are we able to see two photos of Iraqiis seeking shelter but not ones of the tens of thousands of Central Americans invading our borders? Even Congressman are barred by Obama from entering our domestic facilities.

I am genuinely curious. Are the enlisted troops actually Saudi or are they ´imported´?

These Iraqis are heading for the Mexican border to claim they are fleeing drug gangs.

"I hate England," explained the English-born, English-raised designer to reporters at her show at London Fashion Week, where her catwalk models sported "Yes" badges and where her guests were treated to a statement printed on their seats explaining her position. It said: "I am so excited. Fingers crossed they will win. Because if they do, it could be the turning point towards a better world. They could lead by example". Even if I had never met Vivienne Westwood, I would find the fluffy incoherence of this statement troubling. As that double use of the word "could" only serves to emphasise, it is

Dr Biden, wife of vice-president Joe Biden, said: ´These games really show the spirit of the military and how they preserve and their resilience.´ Prince Harry added to her comments in a rousing speech, crowning the athletes ´the best of human spirit´ before a star-studded concert for 25,000.

There is something very wrong with our politics. Whatever the outcome in Scotland, whatever the result of the by-election in Clacton--this is serious. A certain amount of disaffection is inevitable in a democratic country. The people who do not get what they voted for--or what they feel they deserve, whichever way they voted--will believe that the system has denied them what is rightfully theirs, and that they have somehow been cheated. But this has now gone way, way beyond the kind of anger and disappointment that is inevitable in a system where the will of the majority always dominates. If

The murder of David Haines was an "act of pure evil", David Cameron has said after the release of a video purporting to show the UK hostage´s beheading. The PM vowed to do "everything in our power to hunt down" the killers of the 44-year-old aid worker, from Perth, who was kidnapped last year in Syria. Islamic State militants have already beheaded two Americans, saying it was in response to US air strikes in Iraq. The latest video also includes a threat to kill a second British hostage. Mr Cameron said the murder of an innocent aid worker was "despicable

San Francisco & Washington - Islamic State´s Twitter users, which have trumpeted the group´s violent acts and worldview on the social media service, have gone abruptly quiet in past days. Several accounts affiliated with the militant group appear to have gone dormant, according to US government sources, raising questions about whether the government has pressured Twitter to clamp down more aggressively or whether the group has moved to other social media channels. When contacted, several US officials said on condition of anonymity they were unaware of attempts to quash those Twitter accounts. The sudden silence also came days after reports about Islamic State-linked accounts threatening

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday it would be inappropriate for Iran to attend an upcoming meeting in Paris on how to defeat the Islamic State group, The Associated Press (AP) reported. Speaking to reporters in the Turkish capital, Kerry said he has not been formally asked about whether Iran should participate in the meeting of diplomats set for Monday. However, he added, Iran should not be there, given its support for Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad in his three-year war against rebels that are trying to oust him from power. Kerry is in Ankara to press Turkey

Flagship German Offshore Wind Farm
Project Humiliated by Technical Faults
Breitbart London [UK], by Donna Rachel Edmunds    Original Article

Germany’s flagship Bard 1 offshore wind farm has been described as “a faulty total system” as technical problems continue to plague the project, casting major doubts on the feasibility of large scale offshore projects. The wind farm was officially turned on in August last year but was shut down again almost immediately due to technical difficulties that have still not been resolved--and now lawyers are getting involved. Built at a cost of hundreds of millions and costing between €1 and €2 million a day to service, the project is estimated to have cost €340 million in lost power generation over

Dozens of firefighters were last night battling an ‘explosive’ blaze at a new £15million laboratory at Nottingham University. Students were warned to stay indoors and close all windows and doors to avoid flying debris as the fire tore through the GlaxoSmithKline Carbon Neutral Laboratory--which was due to open next month. A university spokesman insisted an open day would take place as planned today, despite the huge blaze which lit up the sky for miles around, sending plumes of smoke could be seen across the city high into the sky. Onlookers reported hearing several explosions as 60 firefighters fought to bring the

Scottish soldiers living temporarily abroad, either in barracks in the UK or at British bases abroad, have expressed "fury" at being denied the vote in next week´s referendum over the future of a country they hope to return to after their service. Thousands of Sailors, Soldiers and Airmen native to Scotland live and work outside of the country, following a military tradition of Scots serving which goes back many hundreds of years. Due to electoral rules, those without an address in Scotland itself cannot vote, meaning those Scots temporarily residing in England, or Cyprus, or Germany will be denied their

Hamas appeared to admit using human shields to fire rockets into Israel for the first time today, but refused to accept responsibility for the slaughter of hundreds of innocent Palestinians killed in retaliatory airstrikes. In a veiled confession that comes two weeks after the end of the Gaza war, a senior Hamas official said the group´s fighters had no choice but to use residential areas from which to launch missiles into their neighbour´s territory. But while Ghazi Hamad claimed they took safeguards to keep people away from the violence, he admitted ´mistakes were made´, blaming Israel´s heavy-handed response for the

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he

Rep.

In an interview for Meet the Press´s "Press Pass" segment, Ryan and new host Chuck Todd might have been mistaken for being on a "No Labels" panel discussion as they both lamented how politicians are rewarded in "advocacy media outlets" for bold rhetoric and standing firm in their positions. Todd lamented that "members of both parties" often "get standing ovations for the rhetoric," to which Ryan replied, "I don´t
