The Cold War has been replaced
by a new nightmare...
the Muslim world gone mad

Daily Express [UK], by Frederick Forsyth

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/22/2014 9:02:57 AM

In the spring of 1990 (heavens, was it really close to a quarter of a century ago?) I found myself taking lunch with a senior officer from the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). He had just authored a major forecast for Margaret Thatcher called Intelligence In The Nineties. [Snip] I asked him if he could sum up his findings in a few words. He gave me two. One was "proliferation", meaning the spread of sophisticated high-tech weaponry from the possession of nation states with controllers and national governments into the hands of brigands and the barely sane. The second word was

Comments:
Another good piece by Forsyth--and he also adds in a few more topics after the one teased here.

Yes, the muslim world has gone mad.
But the Cold War Is back with Putin´s takeover of Crimea and threats to Ukraine.
And China is threatening Japan, S. Korea, Taiwan, and the US.
And Iran is busy building nukes.
And what little in Africa is not covered in blood or aflame is Ebola-ridden.
And Palestinians keep lobbing rockets into Israel, while N. Korea plots the takeover of the South.

Great job, Bammie!

Gone mad ? When weren´t they mad ?

Who else wakes up everyday wanting to kill, burn, rape, and destroy ? Must be the tainted goat meat or a razor blade up their wazoo.

President Barack Obama joked today during a New York speech that he doesn´t seem to have the traffic problems the city´s residents are always complaining about. ´It´s actually pretty smooth for me during the week,´ Obama said, after playfully arguing that everyone in New York ´hypes´ the traffic. ´I don´t know what the problem is,´ he told attendees of the Clinton Global Initiative´s annual meeting. ´I haven´t noticed.´ [Snip] The president was seemingly unaware of how intensely New York drivers despise his visits and the traffic jams they cause around the city.

Former UK Defence Secretary Dr Liam Fox MP has delivered a speech on the ´weakness of the West´ at the Heritage Foundation today, during which he addressed global economics, the threat posed by Vladimir Putin´s Russia, and of course, ISIS. Dr Fox is often regarded as being on the right of Britain´s Conservative Party, and has previously been tipped to lead the organisation after David Cameron finishes his stint as prime minister.

The Israel Border Police´s vaunted YAMAM counter-terrorist unit on Tuesday stormed a building in Hebron that was housing the wanted Palestinians suspected of kidnapping and murdering three yeshiva students in June. In the raid, the team of crack commandos exchanged gunfire with the wanted Palestinians, killing them. Israel had vowed to track down Marwan Kawasme and Amer Abu Aysha, the two Hamas operatives who in June abducted Gil-Ad Shaer,16, Eyal Yifrah, 19, and Naftali Fraenkel, 16, three yeshiva students who were hitchhiking near Hebron.

The leader of Hezbollah said on Tuesday he opposed US-led air strikes on Syria, where his Lebanese Shi´ite Muslim group has been fighting alongside forces loyal to President Bashar Assad. Hassan Nasrallah, whose group is one of the most important helping Assad fight a Sunni-dominated insurgency, was speaking after strikes against Islamic State (IS) and other groups in Lebanon´s neighbor Syria. "We are against American military intervention and an international coalition in Syria, whether that (action) is against the regime or IS," Nasrallah said in a speech aired on Hezbollah-run al-Manar television.

The U.S. and five Arab countries launched dozens of air strikes against ISIS overnight in order to show the terror group that its attacks will not go unanswered, America´s top military officer said today. Army General Martin Dempsey said the raids in northern Syriawhich employed Tomahawk missiles, B1 bombers, F16, F18 and F22 strike fighters and drones--will have successfully proved to the radical Islamists that even strongholds such as the city of Raqqa do not represent a ´safe haven´.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu welcomed the newest addition to the Israel Navy into Haifa Port on Tuesday--the INS Tanin submarine. [Snip] The first of the navy’s second- generation Dolphin-class submarine, the Tanin uses air independent propulsion technology to stay submerged for longer than the three older Dolphin-class vessels.

The meeting will come as a U.S. drive for a nuclear deal with Iran reaches a crucial point.

Barren land, dams with no water reaching them, boats anchored in dried-up reservoirs and shrinking lake levels. These extraordinary images show the devastating impact the worst droughts in decades is having on the American West - and forecasters have predicted it is likely to continue. Around 430,000 acres of land will be left fallow in California - because there hasn´t been enough rain or snow coming from the nearby mountain ranges. Farmers - who are daily facing the prospect of losing their jobs and everything they have - are hoping for relief this winter, but the situation still remains dire.

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS. Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal. “I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m

President Obama is supporting the Secret Service in the wake of a deeply troubling incident in which a disturbed man jumped the White House fence, sprinted across the North Lawn, and actually entered the White House Friday evening. The man, 42 year-old Omar Gonzalez, had a folding knife in his pocket and had left 800 rounds of ammunition in his car not far from the White House. Gonzalez had also drawn the attention of authorities at least twice a few weeks ago — once in Virginia, when he was found with a sniper rifle, a sawed-off shotgun, and a map with

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

Last week, esteemed doctor and one of our ObamaCare Architect Overlords penned a column for the Atlantic that should win a Pulitzer Prize for passive-aggressive shaming. Although Emanuel claims that *he* doesn´t want to live past the age of 75, the article itself could have been a listicle titled, "Top 15 Reasons No One Over 75 Should Receive Healthcare." Emanuel even includes a monstrous but brightly colored graph that is meant to tell anyone over 75 that their "last contribution" to society likely occurred more than a decade ago. Good God.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

President Barack Obama saluted a pair of United States Marines on Tuesday while holding what appeared to be a styrofoam cup in his saluting hand, a breach of military regulations that won´t win him fans among veterans and servicemen. Obama is known for drinking tea, not coffee, when he travels, especially before delivering speeches. His quasi-saluting gesture was an instant embarrassment for the White House, and not because his environmentally taboo drinkware clashed with the green-policy speech he was on his way to deliver at a UN Climate Summit.

Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development. Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

Lois Lerner says she is no Jeffrey Dahmer. The former Internal Revenue Service official referenced the infamous cannibalistic serial killer as she broke her silence for the first time about last year’s IRS scandal. Lerner told the website Politico that she has been the recipient of threats and hate mail, describing how one person called her “the worst person ever in the United States.” “I just thought, ‘Boy, worse than Jeffrey Dahmer?’” Lerner quipped. Lerner, who led the tax-exempt division of the IRS, was forced out of the agency after she found herself at the center of the scandal over the agency’s targeting of conservative groups

Fraternities at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, must start accepting women and all residential fraternities must become fully co-educational over the next three years, the school’s Board of Trustees has ruled. The decision was made “with equality and inclusion in mind,” school President Michael Roth and Trustee Chairman Joshua Boger wrote in an email to students on Monday, Business Insider reported. “Our residential Greek organizations inspire loyalty, community and independence. That’s why all our students should be eligible to join them.” The school has focused on issues with Greek life ever since a woman filed a lawsuit against Wesleyan two years ago

During the Bush administration, national Democrat leaders threatened to kill the ABC network´s broadcast license if a miniseries unfavorable to the Clinton administration wasn´t censored to satisfy Democrats. ABC complied. Earlier this year, Democrats started a push for a Constitutional Amendment to gut (literally) the First Amendment. Over the weekend, Democrats launched a campaign to get -- in their own words -- "Rush Limbaugh off the air." The petition to get Limbaugh off the air comes straight from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in the form of a fundraising/petition email.
