BAGHDAD: The jihadists who overran Mosul last month have demolished ancient shrines and mosques in and around the historic northern Iraqi city, residents and social media posts said on Saturday. At least four shrines to Sunni Arab or sufi figures have been demolished, while six Shia mosques, or husseiniyahs, have also been destroyed, across militant-held parts of northern Nineveh province, of which Mosul is the capital. Pictures posted on the internet by the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group showed the Sunni and sufi shrines were demolished by bulldozers, while the Shia mosques and shrines were all destroyed by explosives.

Good. They´re doing what we should have done in 2003 - and the best part is that they´re doing it to each other.

Remember:

It´s what these people do. See Mali and the shrines in Timbuktu. In this country we use black flag to kill roaches, there they use it to tell you where the roaches are.

As someone who loves history, I hate the fact that they are destroying ancient sites, even if they are mosques. But as long as they are doing it to themselves, I´ll live with it. Remember when the Muslims took control of Eqypt, they were talking about destroying the Pyramids... that would be tragic.

#6, aside from being tragic, destroying the Pyramids would be pointless and a huge waste of energy and power in a country that has none to spare. Just trucking away the bricks and rubble of the Pyramids would be a task probably beyond their capability. But it does speak to the mindset of senseless distruction that these subhuman savages are capable of.

They are like rabid dogs. Imagine waking up every day of your life with a razor blade up your rear end. They like would like to kill and destroy everything in sight. Imagine what they would do here.

When you read the comments, you knew someone would blame westerners. No more foreign aid. Let them have at each other.

Barak Barfi, a spokesman for the family of murdered journalist Steven Sotloff, accused the Obama administration of using Sotloff and fellow journalist James Foley as “pawns,” and reported that some of the “moderate” Syrian rebels sold Sotloff to ISIS on Monday’s “Anderson Cooper 360” on CNN. Barfi said that based on information from “sources on the ground,” “we believe that the so-called moderate rebels that people want our administration to support, one of them sold him probably for something between 25 and $50,000 to ISIS, and that was the reason that he was captured.”

When police found Ali Muhammad Brown, he was taking a mid-afternoon nap under a tarp strung between two trees, just a few hundred feet from a private road that runs along the first ridge of the Watchung Mountains in West Orange. A gun was tucked in his belt, his notebook diary nearby. He was living off bananas and other fruit. It was July 18 when Brown woke to several West Orange police officers with their guns trained on him. He surrendered without a fight. Eight days earlier, about 6 a.m., Brown had left his makeshift campsite and walked through the

Using his verified Twitter account, horror novelist Stephen King singled out the Tea Party for a lecture about Christianity as it pertains to the ongoing crisis at the Mexican border. "Revised Tea Party Gospel," King wrote in one tweet, "´Suffer the little children come unto me. Unless they´re undocumented kids from Central America.´" As of now, though, despite his vast wealth and land holdings, there are no reports of King offering to personally care for or allow any Central American border kids to take refuge in or on his property.

Acting Secretary Sloan Gibson visited Albuquerque on Thursday with high praise for the VA hospital´s staff. He said the staff "reacted properly" when a veteran collapsed in the hospital´s cafeteria and later died. Jim Napoleon Garcia, 71, waited half an hour for an ambulance to take him 500 yards away to the emergency room. He received CPR on the floor during that time. "As I heard what they did and I stood there and looked at them in the eye, I was very proud. I´m very proud of what they did," Gibson said. "I´ve never had to do something like

LIVINGSTON, IL – Homeland security, the US Customs and Border Patrol and other police agencies swarmed Livingston, Illinois. They all parked in the field of a grade school. The peacefulness of the town of 850 was broken by all the excitement. The law officers would not comment about their operation, even to the school superintendent and they were using the school district’s land. The site became an immediate attraction for citizens who say the officers were hospitable, inviting the kids to check out the choppers up close. A spokesman in the U.S. Attorney`s Office said he cannot confirm or deny

Shoes with President Obama’s face and the campaign slogan “Yes we can” are apparently showing up on the feet of illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. The conservative writer and filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch posted the images on his Facebook page Wednesday. Mr. Lynch said that the pictures were sent to him by U.S. Border Patrol agents. “I’ve received two sets of photos from two contacts at the border,” Mr. Lynch said on his Facebook page. “I cannot validate the authenticity of the pictures.

Bernadette Lancelin is very upset that the unaccompanied minors flooding across the border aren’t being sent back home. Instead they are being put in detention centers around the country. Lancelin is out with the local news in Houston because a closed middle school that hasn’t been used in years is now on the list to become another detention center. And she, among others, is furious about it. "It’s not right. Now billions of dollars want to be borrowed from the White House to help feed and house them. What about the kids here?

Half of all bird species in North America — including the bald eagle — are at risk of severe population decline by 2080 if the swift pace of global warming continues, the National Audubon Society concluded in a study released Monday. "The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist. (Snip) By 2080, the bald eagle, the national symbol of the United States, could see its habitat decrease by 75%, the report says.

This morning, New York Times reporter Kim Severson spiced up her obituary for Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy by tagging him "a symbol of intolerance" who presided over a "restaurant chain [seen by some] as a symbol of hate." Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true. Mr. Cathy, who died on Monday at 93, was by all appearances a humble Christian man from Georgia with little education who sold a simple sandwich: a

WASHINGTON--US President Barack Obama will tell the American people on Wednesday night that he plans to order strikes against Islamic State forces in both Syria and Iraq until the group is ultimately destroyed. The president´s plan includes additional support for opposition militias in Syria vetted by the United States, which will serve as a ground force complementing America´s air campaign. [Snip] The "comprehensive strategy," as described by one White House official, will involve "US military action and support for the forces combating ISIL [Islamic State] on the ground–both the opposition in Syria and a new, inclusive Iraqi government."

Megyn Kelly tonight brought viewers the first part of her contentious showdown with Professor Ward Churchill, best known for his controversial comments about the “little Eichmanns” who were in the World Trade Center when the planes hit on September 11th. Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under
