fuel trucks in Afghanistan

Telegraph [UK], by Agencies

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/5/2014 10:06:11 AM

A Taliban bomb attack on the outskirts of Kabul set ablaze 200 fuel trucks that the militants claimed were supplying foreign troops in Afghanistan, officials said. The tankers were set on fire as they sat in a parking lot waiting to enter the Afghan capital, which is currently gripped by a fraud dispute over presidential elections in June. Taliban insurgents fighting a 13-year-war against US-led forces in Afghanistan often attack western supply convoys and claimed responsibility for the late Friday night attack. Television footage showed black smoke billowing above the site of the attack, with the charred wreckage of dozens of trucks

Had these vermin just arrived from another planet we would know what to do with them.

The current state of affairs both locally and internationally lobbies in favor of seclusion.

Why debate with idiots ?

Angry, malicious idiots, at that.

I have an excellent blender, a small grove of citrus trees, a decent ice machine and several cases of Padron.

.....and I´m not afraid to use them.

Yall are welcome but that last ten miles of dirt road is a Prius killer.

Media Bias: This May Be the
Best Joke I´ve Heard All Year...
Breitbart London [UK], by Raheem Kassam    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 9/8/2014 12:10:05 AM     Post Reply
Most level-headed people realise that on issues like ISIS and Hamas, the mainstream media is perhaps less than forthright and unbiased in its coverage. For instance, we are supposed to believe that Islamist terrorists are either ´insurgents´ or ´militants´ or some other watered down phrase--because what a dreadful breach of integrity it would be if the BBC called a spade a spade, right? [Snip] A CNN Reporter, BBC Reporter, and an Israeli commando were captured by terrorists in Iraq. The leader of the terrorists told them that he would grant them each one last request before they were beheaded.

Britain should not rush into military action against Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, the outgoing head of the Army has warned. [Snip] In his valedictory interview he urges David Cameron to be cautious after the Prime Minister indicated that Britain could join military strikes as soon as next week. “We have to be very careful that we do not get sucked into an international conflict without having a proper understanding of the situation on the ground and providing sufficient military firepower to execute a decisive plan,” Sir Peter says. “We were found wanting in both these respects in

The INS Tanin, Israel´s fourth and most advanced Dolphin class submarine – is en route to Israel from Germany, and the Navy has released video of the vessel and the ceremony in which it was launched at Germany´s Kiel shipyards at week´s end. Reports claim Israel has modified the Dolphin´s 650mm launch tubes to allow the launch of missiles that could carry nuclear warheads. Such missiles should give Israel the ability to deter belligerent neighbors like Iran, if it delivers a sufficiently convincing threat to make use of them. However – Israel has thus far maintained a policy of nuclear ambiguity. The

Scores of Palestinians rioted in East Jerusalem today after hearing that a youth from their neighbourhood had died of wounds suffered in a clash with Israeli police last week. Protesters in the neighbourhood of Wadi al-Joz close to the walled Old City threw rocks, petrol bombs and flares at passing cars, and riot officers responded with rubber bullets during an afternoon of clashes that lasted for several hours. There were no reports of serious injury. Mohammed Sinokrot, 16, succumbed to a head wound suffered during a protest a week ago but the circumstances of how he sustained the wound were in dispute.

US President Barack Obama admitted he should have expected to be criticized for hitting the links on the same day that he addressed the beheading of American journalist James Foley and spoke with his family. ´Part of this job is also the theater of it,´ he told NBC News´ Chuck Todd. ´Well, it´s not something that always comes naturally to me. But it matters. And I´m mindful of that.´ He added: ´I should have anticipated the optics´ of playing golf.

Irish UN troops "almost certainly" would have been killed or taken hostage during fighting last week if it were not for Israeli soldiers saving them, senior sources told the Irish Independent on Sunday. The crisis would likely have been similar to the ongoing hostage situation with Filipino and Fijian UN troops in the buffer zone along the Syrian border. The Philippines´ soldiers managed to escape into safety in Israel, while the 44 soldiers from Fiji still remain in captivity.

Residents of the German city of Wuppertal have expressed concern after a group of young radical Islamists started taking to the streets late at night, trying to deter revellers from drinking and gambling. The self-styled "Sharia Police" have been patrolling an area around the city´s main train station, declaring the popular nightlife area to be a "Sharia Controlled Zone". Deutshe Welle reports that witnesses have seen them handing out leaflets urging people not to drink alcohol, attend concerts, gamble, watch pornography or visit prostitutes.

When GQ, the glossy men’s magazine, announced that Tony Blair had won its Philanthropist of the Year award, the former prime minister beamed with delight as he collected his trophy at its glittering awards ceremony. Here was vindication for his efforts since leaving Downing Street, including setting up three charities in his name. [Snip] But the award risks being overshadowed by growing concerns over the way one of his foundations operates. The Charity Commission has told The Sunday Telegraph that it will meet representatives of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation (TBFF) over concerns brought to its attention by a former

Efraim Halevy says Israel should be wary of strengthening of Islamic State terrorists in Jordan and Gaza, but biggest danger could potentially come from Israeli-Arabs volunteering for group. Israel should be concerned with the possibility that its own citizens will potentially volunteer to join the Islamic State terrorist group, former Mossad chief Efraim Halevy warned on Sunday. [Snip] "There are signs of sympathy for the Islamic State among Israeli citizens," Halevy told Army Radio. "When a backdrop of sympathy exists, there are usually some who cross over to wider action." He said that a similar process "occurred in western Europe

Hospitals across the Midwest are being inundated with children infected by a bizarre virus, which first comes on as a common cold before developing into severe respiratory distress. In Kansas City, Missouri, about 450 children were recently treated at one facility--Children´s Mercy Hospital--with at least 60 of them admitted to intensive care. According to CNN Health, possible outbreaks have also been reported in Colorado, Illinois and Ohio. [Snip] ´It´s worse in terms of scope of critically ill children who require intensive care.´ Dr. Jackson said the problem started around when school went back on August 17 and peaked between August

Somalia´s Islamist group al-Shabab has named Ahmad Umar as successor to former leader Ahmed Abdi Godane, who was killed in a US air strike. The group announced the move in an online statement, vowing to take revenge for Godane´s death. Somalia´s authorities earlier put the country on alert for possible retaliatory attacks by al-Shabab. The alert came as the US confirmed the death of Godane in air strikes south of Mogadishu on Monday night. ´Bitter consequences´ Little is known about Ahmad Umar, who is also known as Abu Ubaidah.

Iraqi forces reported that the head of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) ´Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi´ was killed in U.S airstrikes. "Despite that Iraqi and U.S sources confirmed the killing of Abu Bajr al-Baghdadi, but the White House did not confirmed it yet", AFP reported. Three senior members of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) - including an aide to its leader - were killed in a U.S. airstrike in Iraq, a senior Iraqi security official told NBC News Thursday.

Immigrant-rights groups reacted furiously Saturday after the White House made clear President Obama will not take unilateral action on immigration before November’s elections, nodding at the political realities of the issue as he punted on the key policy questions. With a number of key Senate races in GOP-leaning states, Democrats had feared that action now would anger voters and cost them control of the upper chamber, and had privately begged the White House to hold off on any move to halt deportations. But immigration activists said it’s the latest in a series of moves by Mr. Obama to shove their

Are you tired of being lied to yet? My guess is no... because Americans seem to have developed an infinite capacity for patience with a federal government that is increasingly mettlesome, mendacious and menacing.[SNIP] This last Friday night, an interview was aired which should convince American citizens once and for all that their government is not telling the truth about what happened in Libya two years ago. That’s been obvious to many of us for months, but despite the naming of a select committee by the U.S. House of Representatives to investigate what could have happened, what should have happened,

Sen.

According to Mr. Sanders, taxing the top .25 percent of wealthiest Americans is the fairest

"President Obama has openly reaffirmed his unconstitutional plan to nullify our nation’s sovereign laws, issuing executive amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants. In so doing, he will wipe away American workers’ lawful immigration protections.

Vice President Joe Biden gives President Obama´s weekly remarks: Ladies and gentlemen, this is Joe Biden, I’m filling in for President Obama, while he addresses the NATO summit in Wales. When the President and I took office in January of 2009, this nation was in the midst of the greatest economic crisis since the great depression. Our economy had plummeted at a rate of 8% in a single quarter — part of the fastest economic decline any time in the last half century. Millions of families were falling underwater on their homes and threatened with foreclosure. The iconic American automobile industry was under siege.
