BS? The Craigslist Vietnam Vet "I met you in the rain on the last day of 1972" Trope --- UPDATED, BUMPED


Since one of the reasons I started this blog a decade ago is that I wanted an outlet for my inner a**hole, I might as well get this off my chest: That Boston Craigslist "I met you in the rain on the last day of 1972" post every one is talking about? Yeah, that one. The one every one thinks is so touching. So touching and moving that it's gone super viral?

My BS detector is on overdrive on this one.


Because it plays into all the Vietnam Vet Hollywood archetypes. And those archetypes, like so many tropes imagined by a leftist Hollwyood, simply aren't true representations of veterans in general or of Vietnam Vets in particular.

Let's start here: The Suicidal Vet:

When the bottle was empty, I made for the door and vowed, upon returning, that I would retrieve the Smith & Wesson Model 15 from the closet and give myself the discharge I deserved.
Except that it isn't true: Study: No link between combat deployment and suicides

At least for recent vets:

Of the suicides, 3,879 were service members who did not deploy and 1,162 were those who did participate in OEF or OIF....

Those figures translate into a suicide rate of ... 18.86 per 100,000 person years for those who [deployed]

The civilian [suicide] rate is 18.8 per 100,000, according to Army and National Institutes of Mental Health calculations.

Ok, now why was this "vet" so depressed? Because he had bombed poor innocent Vietnamese:
One week prior, at the behest of Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, I'd flown four B-52 sorties over Hanoi. I dropped forty-eight bombs. How many homes I destroyed, how many lives I ended, I'll never know. But in the eyes of my superiors, I had served my country honorably, and I was thusly discharged with such distinction.
Now, I've known a lot of Vietnam Vets over the years. Vets with complaints. Complaints about the VA. Complaints about Tricare. Complaints about the dirty smelly hippies who spat on them when they returned home. Complaints about the dirty smelly politicians who abandoned the mission. Complaints about dirty smelly Hollywood directors depicting them as monsters who are only one step shy of psychosis, suicide, or mass murder.

But the only vet I've ever been introduced to that complains about killing people in Vietnam were on TV or in the movies.

Seriously, it was a stupid archetype back in the 1980s when John Rambo was getting harassed by the man and when Ron Kovic was celebrating his shared birthday with Ho Chi Minh's on the 4th of July. And it continues to be stupid.

Ok, sure, there are some pretty effed up vets. But look around, there are some pretty effed of people everywhere. And their veteran status usually has little to do with said effed up status.

And then there's this mysterious woman who he just happens to meet while both of them are ducking in from a rainstorm:

And then I saw you.

You'd taken shelter under the balcony of the Old State House. You were wearing a teal ball gown, which appeared to me both regal and ridiculous. Your brown hair was matted to the right side of your face, and a galaxy of freckles dusted your shoulders. I'd never seen anything so beautiful.

When I joined you under the balcony, you looked at me with your big green eyes, and I could tell that you'd been crying. I asked if you were okay. You said you'd been better. I asked if you'd like to have a cup of coffee. You said only if I would join you. Before I could smile, you snatched my hand and led me on a dash through Downtown Crossing and into Neisner's.

Wow. Just, wow.

Yeah, I think I've seen that commercial before. Let's just hope they were both chewing the right gum. TV tells me it makes all the difference. Did they have Mentos, the freshamker! in 1972?

Then in just a few short hours this (hot and wet, no, seriously -- it's a hot chick who's all wet in the rain) angelic woman gives him hope. The kind of hope that only a sweet, yet kind of hot, and soaking wet woman can give a man reason to live.

It's Full Metal Jacket meets Serendipity.

I hope they cast John Cusak in the movie. He was the bomb in Hot Tub Time Machine.

And you know what. Despondent Vietnam Vet. Alcoholic. With a gun. In the city on New Year's Eve. 1972.

Where have I seen that before?

Oh, yeah, Lieutenant Dan in Forrest Gump.

(I'll grant that in Forrest Gump it's 1971 turning to 1972, while in the Craigslist trope it's 1972 about to be 1973 -- but, come on, that's still pretty on the nose)

So I'm just not buying it. It plays into too many stereotypes. This reads like some short story written in an MFA workshop, a Learning Annex course, or English 101 down at the local community college taught by a would-be Hollwyood screenwriter who just can't get a meeting with Oliver Stone to pitch him this incredible treatment.

Then again, maybe I'm just a cynical jerk with my own false archetype of the typical veteran who came home, got married, had kids, paid taxes, and who's biggest problem with Vietnam was that the a**holes in Congress cut off funding to the South just before columns of Soviet tanks pushed into Hanoi and when that archetype is challenged my default position is to cry bullsh*t until there's some compelling evidence to the contrary.

But that's just me.

UPDATE 10/04/2015: Apparently, it's not just me. Thanks to all the vets in the comments who agreed that this was BS. Not only BS, but BS written by someone who had never served in the military.

I'm going to post a few of their comments above the fold. I hope they don't mind. I've corrected some of the spelling (I know, ironical) because they didn't know I'd post them. Also, Italics and bold are mine. I've also added a couple of links for clarification:

Dude dropped 48 bombs on four missions?

I was with the 91st SMW, partnered with the 91st SBW in Minot. So I did a little research and viola!

For a B52, Their normal bomb load was 84 bombs internally and 24 bombs under the wings.

48 bombs on four missions?

Just my 2 cents.....

I think going from Linebacker II, which ended on the 29th, to sitting in an apartment in Boston with suicidal thoughts barely two days later just strikes me as too quick and utterly nonsensical.

Also, what kind of a man recognizes 'teal' as a color? [Ed: I know teal is a color. I know it has something to do with green. But honestly, I couldn't tell you the difference between teal and any other kind of green]

The person who wrote this knows little about the US military.

A pilot of a large fixed-wing bomber is ALWAYS a commissioned officer. Officers don't get "discharges". A "discharge" is what enlisted men get.

Furthermore, no pilot who has gone through years of training in the military, is going to act surprised, shocked and somehow horrified that he will actually have to drop bombs from the bomber he has VOLUNTEERED and trained to fly. That's like a heart surgeon, after years of medical school and internship, suddenly becoming sickened by the idea that he might actually have to transplant a heart.

Makes no sense.

And this one, just .... because:
Craigslist is a fine place to post creative writing, especially if it's bad.
In this case a mish-mash of plagiarized bits.
People believe what fits their narrative, obviously.

I posted this a few years ago on Halloween:


You: running, screaming, bleeding a bit

Me: hockey mask, heavy breathing, relentless.

Let's do it again at the same campground this year,
bring some friends.

Posted by: Storm Saxon's Gall Bladder


So, it's pretty close to official: This is a HOAX

Any other thoughts?

UPDATE 10/05/2015: Okay, maybe the last update on this one. Check out a similar post by Thomas Wictor, who has maps and photos and stuff, and who confirms:

The bombing missions that still haunt him were called Operation Linebacker II. Since he says that he’d flown his sorties a week before December 31, 1972, that would mean he flew the Christmas Eve missions....

Nope. The December 24 sorties hit Thai Nguyen and Kep, not Hanoi. And the December 23 raid also avoided Hanoi....

Finally, the fake bomber pilot said that he was discharged (separated) from the Air Force and back in Boston within a week. The B-52s used in Operation Linebacker II flew out of either U-Tapao Royal Thai Air Force Base, Thailand, or Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. Therefore the writer would’ve had to turn in all his gear, fill out the paperwork, wait for it to be approved, and then fly to an Air Force separation center in the continental US. The closest such center to Boston is Seymour Johnson Air Force Base near Goldsboro, North Carolina.

So the pilot mustered out of the air force, flew to North Carolina, was separated, made his way to Boston, and found a studio apartment, all in a week.

This little essay is slander and a form of stolen valor

Amen brotha!

ISIS Committing Largest Religious Genocide Ever

ISIS outdoing the Nazis.

The claim comes from a veteran German journalist who is the only reporter to have been allowed to operate as an ‘embed’ with ISIS and escape alive.

Jürgen Todenhöfer, 75, a former MP with Angela Merkel's CDU party, became a reporter in 2000 and has specialized in war reporting.

He spent 10 harrowing days on the ISIS frontline, dodging bullets and death threats, while being chauffeured around by none other than the UK’s own scumbag traitor 'Jihadi John' – real name Mohammed Emwazi.

...He believes the west cannot militarily defeat the self-styled Caliphate rulers and writes: “The terrorists plan on killing several hundred million people.

"The west is drastically underestimating the power of ISIS."

Shockingly, he even compares them to a "nuclear tsunami preparing the largest religious cleansing in history."

Critics say Todenhöfer, 75, was only allowed to get so close to ISIS because of his reputation as a vociferous critic of U.S. policy in Iraq and Afghanistan.

So do with them what we did to Hitler, feed them to the Russians for w while, then lower the boom.

Hell slip Putin a few Bil under the table. Not a problem. Lets see who would make a deal like that? Who? Trump?

Because you ain't going to beat ISIS with any less.

There is no Crying in Jihad

No wait!

A video released by Syria's Al-Qaeda affiliate, the Al-Nusra Front, shows a young suicide bomber’s final moments before detonating himself.

Jafar is visibly crying and can be heard saying:

"I'm just scared I won't succeed."
Yeah you better say that...... bub.

Anyway Jafar goes off later in the film.... at the link.

Kayla Mueller Murdered by IS Not Killed in Airstrike

Bahgdadi, we are coming for you.


Haji Mutazz had tried to get Kayla for himself. Amshe said he told her Baghdadi was always going to kill Kayla when he had finished with her.

Haji Mutazz laughed when he saw news reports on television that Kayla had been accidentally hit in a coalition air strike, Amshe said.

"Her stupid government," he said. "We killed her."

According to Amshe, he went on: "We killed her because she is an American. If Obama wanted to he could tell Bashar [al-Assad, the Syrian president] to stop bombing us. Ten of our women and children die every day. This is our revenge. We will kill any American citizen we capture. If any Western government refuses to put pressure on Bashar, we will kill their citizens too."

Amshe is the only source for this story. But she seemed to me a very clever, capable young woman - she led an escape, taking five Yazidi girls to safety - and her story was detailed and consistent throughout.

Zawahiri Would Totally Hang With IS

Maybe Zawahiri should just offer to give Baghdadi a hummer?

Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri said in a newly released audio message that while he doesn't consider the Islamic State's declaration of a caliphate legitimate, he's not opposed to cooperating with the militants in the fight against the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq and Syria.

"We don't recognize the caliphate of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi," he says in an audiotape released by al Qaeda's official media wing. He also tells Muslims they are not obligated to join it.

"Despite the big mistakes [of Islamic State], if I were in Iraq or Syria I would cooperate with them in killing the crusaders and secularists and Shiites even though I don't recognize the legitimacy of their state, because the matter is bigger than that," he explains.

Oh well when it comes to murdering the Kuffar IS and AQ Central are on the same page.

Anyway Zawahiri seems to be coming as a way of escaping his irrelevance.

Space Alien Nukes Detectable From Earth?

So if Space Alien nukes might give them away might our nukes give us away to Space Aliens?

A team of astronomers recently tried to determine whether Trinity’s light might be cosmic in a different sense. The Trinity test involved only one explosion. But if there were many more explosions, involving many more nuclear weapons, it might generate enough heat and light to be seen from nearby stars, or from the deeper reaches of our galaxy—so long as someone out there was looking.

And so, the thinking goes, maybe we should be looking. If every intelligent species eventually stumbles on nuclear technology, and not all of them manage it well, then it might be possible to spot an apocalypse in the heavens. Or several.

Hold me! I'm Skeert!

US Soldier Killed in Kabul Attack

Just a reminder that the Taliban are still there. And that our people are still in harm's way.

First Sgt. P. Andrew McKenna, of the Army Special Forces, was killed by a suicide bomb attack in Kabul, Afghanistan on Friday evening, according to U.S. Sen. Jack Reed's office.
McKenna, a Bristol native, was a 1998 graduate of Mt. Hope High School.

“I join all Rhode Islanders in mourning the loss of Andrew McKenna," Reed said in a statement. "I've had the privilege of meeting Andrew and his family. Sgt. McKenna was an extraordinary young man with a big heart and a dedicated, distinguished soldier."

About a month earlier, Reed and state Rep. Raymond Gallison Jr., D-Bristol, honored McKenna by presenting him with an award for "coming the farthest" to the July 4 Bristol Parade.

"This is absolutely devastating to the family and the entire town of Bristol," said Gallison. "Everybody is just devastated."

We pray the Lord accept him and comfort his family.

Military Airstrikes Continue Against ISIL Terrorists in Syria and Iraq
SOUTHWEST ASIA – On July 16, coalition military forces continued to attack ISIL terrorists in Syria and Iraq. In Syria, coalition military forces conducted 14 airstrikes using bomber, fighter-attack, and remotely piloted aircraft. Separately in Iraq, coalition military forces conducted 12 airstrikes approved by the Iraqi Ministry of Defense using bomber, attack, fighter-attack and remotely piloted aircraft against ISIL targets.

“The airstrikes conducted in the past 24 hours continue to destroy Daesh’s capability to conduct terrorist attacks in the region,” said Col. Wayne Marotto, CJTF-OIR chief of public affairs. “Coalition airstrikes are degrading Daesh’s ability to maintain territory in the region.”

The following is a summary of the strikes conducted against ISIL since the last press release:

• Near Al Hasakah, nine airstrikes struck seven ISIL tactical units and destroyed six ISIL fighting positions, three ISIL vehicles, an ISIL structure and an ISIL VBIED.
• Near Ar Raqqah, three airstrikes destroyed an ISIL excavator, three ISIL bridges and an ISIL T-wall.
• Near Tal Abyad, two airstrikes struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL fighting position and an ISIL vehicle.
• Near Bayji, three airstrikes struck an ISIL tank and destroyed an ISIL sniper position and four ISIL buildings.
• Near Habbaniyah, one airstrike struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL building.
• Near Haditha, one airstrike destroyed an ISIL VBIED, an ISIL boat and an ISIL barge.
• Near Mosul, three airstrikes struck two ISIL tactical units and destroyed an ISIL technical vehicle, an ISIL mortar tube, two ISIL buildings and an ISIL bunker.
• Near Ramadi, two airstrikes struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL up-armored HMMWV.
• Near Tal Afar, two airstrikes struck an ISIL tactical unit and an ISIL rocket position and destroyed an ISIL technical vehicle, an ISIL heavy machine gun and an ISIL building.

Airstrike assessments are based on initial reports. All aircraft returned to base safely.

The strikes were conducted as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, the operation to eliminate the ISIL terrorist group and the threat they pose to Iraq, Syria and the wider international community.

The destruction of ISIL targets in Syria and Iraq further limits the group's ability to project terror and conduct operations. Coalition nations which have conducted airstrikes in Iraq include Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Jordan, Netherlands, United Kingdom and United States. Coalition nations which have conducted airstrikes in Syria include Bahrain, Canada, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and the U.S.

Two Glaring Yet Popular Fallacies in ISIS/Anti Terror Strategy

The first is that we can train, that we can enable some mysterious force (Other than the Kurds) to fight al-Qaeda and ISIS terrorists.

NPR: This is a job for the Iraqis to solve. But we are going to provide them with every means of support they need to be successful.

...I think it's a much more difficult challenge now than it might have been a few years ago, when the notion of training and equipping the then more moderate Syrian opposition was first raised.

And from Daily Beast, Unreliable Syrian Recruits for an Unworkable Obama Army to Fight ISIS
Only a handful of volunteers signed up for the training program, and many of them quit for Ramadan.

I could go on forever quoting the number of articles stating we must train the Iraqis, the Afghans, The Yemenis, Libyans to establish progressive orderly democratic regimes.

Yet time and time again the actual results of our efforts is to train and strengthen the terrorists, the training we gave the Awakening Councils was co-opted and integrated into AQI and later emerged in the fall of Mosul.

The Taliban have infiltrated the Afghan security forces and in turn we ended up training the enemy to fight us, both by fighting the Taliban directly in protracted long term engagements and also by training and support actually making the enemy better fighters.

Would our security be better served long term if we had just defeated the Taliban decisively and then left. If you then want a proxy war against the Taliban later. Teaching either or both sides to be better fighters and more effective just means the day they have recovered enough to threaten you comes sooner rather than later. Let those forces slog it out their way. Keeps them busy while also maintaining your status as the best trained most effective force for the next time you have to sent them back to the stone age.

In the same manner there is Criticism of Donald Trump over saying he would cut off ISIS flow of money by cutting off their supply of oil by military action against oil infrastructure controlled by ISIS.

You're destroying the infrastructure of Iraq, you're not really doing much to hurt ISIS," retired Lt. Col. Rick Francona said. "At some future point those oil fields will have to help regenerate Iraq."
That is regenrate the parts of Iraq and Syria destroyed in a conflict that leads to ISIS defeat.

Again mistake, now I might be fore rebuilding in say a situation where the peace has been won and you can trust the other side somewhat, as in the end of WWII.

But in ISIS controlled areas and other areas in the ME like Libya, Yemen or Afghanistan there remains a large amount of hostility against the United States. An array of terrorist actors with which there will be no peace.

So why rebuild your enemy, only bringing closer the day where they can threaten you again. You just purchased the defeat of your enemy by expending much blood and treasure, so the next step is to begin expending more blood and treasure undoing your victory.

Possibly just maybe letting them bear the full cost of these conflicts would do more to deter future hostilities, if not it buys you more time again before the next time you have to remind the enemy that the cost of any conflict with us will be very high.

Obama Screws Over Freedom Loving Kurds to Please Iran and ISIS Loving Turkey

Because if you help the Kurds you're going to piss off Iraq, wholly owned subisdiary of the Iranian Mullahs and also Turkey. Who would rather see ISIS win than the Kurds.

So rather than do the right thing by the Kurds Obama chooses to feed them to Islamic State. How pragmatic.

The United States has blocked attempts by its Middle East allies to fly heavy weapons directly to the Kurds fighting Islamic State jihadists in Iraq, The Telegraph has learnt.

Some of America’s closest allies say President Barack Obama and other Western leaders, including David Cameron, are failing to show strategic leadership over the world’s gravest security crisis for decades.

They now say they are willing to “go it alone” in supplying heavy weapons to the Kurds, even if means defying the Iraqi authorities and their American backers, who demand all weapons be channelled through Baghdad.

High level officials from Gulf and other states have told this newspaper that all attempts to persuade Mr Obama of the need to arm the Kurds directly as part of more vigorous plans to take on Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) have failed. The Senate voted down one attempt by supporters of the Kurdish cause last month.


And this is how we return the favor? No wonder no one trusts US.

al-Qaida in South Asia You Droned Me Bro!

al-Qaeda whines and bitches about US arranging their martyrdom.

DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan (AP) — U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan killed two leaders of al-Qaida's South Asia branch earlier this year, a spokesman for the militants said Sunday, confirming a major blow to the affiliate only months after its creation.

In an audio message, spokesman Usama Mahmood said a Jan. 5 drone strike in North Waziristan killed Ubaidullah, who was in charge of the group's Afghan affairs, while a later strike killed deputy chief Raja Suleman. He said both had fought under aliases. His claim corresponds with the dates of previously reported U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan's tribal region near the Afghan border.

WTF is wrong with them, droning is a blessing from Allah. I mean Unless AQ really doesn't believe that Martyrs go to Jannah BS. And they don't, if they did how come Zawahiri has never achieved martyrdom?

How to Defeat IS Crusade!

It takes a Crusade to defeat IS.

The only successes against ISIS have come at the hands of expressly ethno-sectarian troops—not states you could identify on a Google map: the Shiite militias and Iranian advisors that accompany the Iraqi army into battle, the Alawi Syrians and their Hezbollah allies, or the Kurds fighting, with a wink, for the Iraqi state. Even the first time ISIS was defeated, in 2007-2008, it was by expressly sectarian Sunni militias in Anbar, not by the Iraqi army.

There is no state army winning in the Middle East; nor, really, against radical Islam elsewhere, which has exploded since 2001. The reason lies in the history of the Knights Templars.

Before Amnesty International, before Greenpeace, the Knights Templars and other crusading orders like the Knights Hospitaller were the original non-governmental organizations. They were created to fill the gaps in state capacity, protecting pilgrims enroute to the Holy Land after the First Crusade recaptured Jerusalem in 1099. The Templars supplied banking, medical care, and a permanently expeditionary military capacity that solidified Christendom’s lines of communication to the Middle East, and they prospered by it.

As the world’s only ideology, the victory of the West has laid bare its own weakness: that it offers no greater cause than more consumption and a softer life. Islamism, like communism and fascism, is the latest incarnation of man’s desire to fill that nothing with something. The victory of no cause may have perversely begged the creation of some cause -- even a cruel and terrible one.

All the Interpol cooperation in the world hasn’t been successful in choking off the supply of recruits pouring into Syria to fight for ISIS, a substate pipeline not too unlike that of the Templars. The shadow networks of hiwala funding, military recruiting, and Islamist ideology crisscross European and European-drawn boundaries.

So that is the West's weakness, we don't believe in ourselves. Let alone the lack of faith in Christianity, the left and the enemies of freedom relentless drumbeat of America as the villain as the Imperialist of the day means that we don't even believe in our secular state anymore.

And who is going to lay down their blood and treasure for no cause.

So there can only be one outcome, the side that believes in its cause will win. Its that simple.

So unless you want to find yourself living under a Fascist Islamic Sharia Cult in the next few generations I suggest you better start effing believing in something.

Over Thinking Gitmo

Sometimes we tend to view certain objectives as complicated, when really simple solutions are at our fingertips.

Obama reiterated in his State of the Union address that he is committed to closing Guantanamo:

Right now, there are 122 detainees at the facility, 54 of whom are cleared for transfer—assuming diplomatic arrangements can be made to resettle them. This number could grow. Periodic Review Boards so far have flipped a large percentage of detainees slated for continued detention to the transfer group. And that could continue. So there are probably north of 60 detainees who, assuming we could find somewhere to take them safely, could be removed. The first step for a president who wants to close the facility is to get as many of these transfers done as possible.

This is not easy. The Obama administration has had a fair bit of success in resettling detainees, more than I expected at the outset of the administration. But the climate is difficult now. The transfer restrictions still require serious certifications for each detainee removed. And the more scared foreign populations and leaders become of events like the ones in Paris and of groups like the Islamic State, the more difficult the climate becomes to convince countries that what’s really lacking from their polities is a few Guantanamo detainees. The administration has gotten some transfers done recently—and thus has some momentum. And there are countries that want to help, generally in exchange for something. So there’s opportunity here, but it’s not clear how much, and it’s not clear that the opportunities will persist. And for reasons I’ll explain, there’s also not a lot of time.

Of course the case really is that every one of the GITMO prisoners are unlawful belligerents and none of them are susbscribers to the Geneva conventions to start with. In fact they hold it in contempt and regularly violate the norms of civilized conflict in their daily conduct. Thus the term terrorists.

So I propose the solution is very simple and requires but a stiff upper lip, 15 minutes and two boxes of these.


This does not include the cost of dumping the bodies overboard proper burial at sea according to Islamic tradition.

you will get that the usual AQ and ISIS supporting whiners whining there for a a couple news cycles. But all you really need then is a former NFL player to stiff a hooker and boom!

Another Day Another Islamist CyberAttack

I've been getting messages telling me that a couple Anti-Jihad websites are down.

A group known as Izzah Hackers has been running a DDOS attack against the blog http://www.islam-watch.org/ to which access is sporadic, you can get there, but you may have to refresh a few times.

The second attack is against http://pamelageller.com/

It seems to have been effective in blowing all the site's bandwidth allowance.

Looking at Izzah Hackers they have been around for quite a while. Doing various things mainly against Israeli websites and a Christian church in Ireland. So The Kinder Gentler Islamist Jew Haters, Palestinian activist type.

Their artwork is similar to some of the CyberJihad crowd but they are Anti-ISIS. Anti Islamic Terrorism. But even f you find an Islamic Terrorists they only exist because Juice!

They are for freedom.....

1118 Freshly Dead Jihadists

We've waxed a lot of Jihadis since we began to act against AQ and ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

ISIS and al-Nusra lost 1118 fighters by direct US action, that's not counting the IS killed by the Kurds or Iraq or by the Syrian Regime or in conflicts between Sunni rebel groups. That's a pretty high rate of attrition when you add all those up.

Unfortunately there is a pretty deep bench of retards waiting in line.

Anyway the Syrian Observatory is hardly pro US but lists only 52 casualties who were collateral damage.

That's about a 4.406% collateral damage rate. Pretty good rate considering all the whining IS does about civilians.

Is it just me of is ISIS making a habit of getting its ass kicked lately?Schweet!

BAGHDAD — Kurdish forces, backed by a surge of American airstrikes in recent days, recaptured a large swath of territory from Islamic State militants on Thursday, opening a path from the autonomous Kurdish region to Mount Sinjar in the west, near the Syrian border.

The two-day offensive, which involved 8,000 fighters, known as pesh merga, was the largest one to date in the war against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL, according to Kurdish officials. It was also a successful demonstration of President Obama’s strategy for battling the extremist group: American air power combined with local forces doing the fighting on the ground.

A statement released Thursday night by the office of Masrour Barzani, the head of the Kurdistan Regional Security Council, called the operation “the single biggest military offensive against ISIS, and the most successful.”

Its always nice to start off with a feel good story, don't you think?

Brookings Report on IS

Charles Listers new report:

Intense turmoil in Syria and Iraq has created socio-political vacuums in which jihadi groups have been able to thrive. The Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) had proven to be the strongest and most dynamic of these groups, seizing large swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq. Shortly after routing Iraqi forces and conquering Mosul in June 2014, ISIS boldly announced the establishment of a caliphate and renamed itself the Islamic State (IS). How did IS become such a powerful force? What are its goals and characteristics? What are the best options for containing and defeating the group?

In a new Brookings Doha Center Analysis Paper, Charles Lister traces IS’s roots from Jordan to Afghanistan, and finally to Iraq and Syria. He describes its evolution from a small terrorist group into a bureaucratic organization that currently controls thousands of square miles and is attempting to govern millions of people. Lister assesses the group’s capabilities, explains its various tactics, and identifies its likely trajectory.

According to Lister, the key to undermining IS’s long-term sustainability is to address the socio-political failures of Syria and Iraq. Accordingly, he warns that effectively countering IS will be a long process that must be led by local actors. Specifically, Lister argues that local actors, regional states, and the international community should work to counter IS’s financial strength, neutralize its military mobility, target its leadership, and restrict its use of social media for recruitment and information operations.

Even More Imperial Good News! Khorasan Group Gets Droned

A U.S. airstrike in Syria appears to have killed a key French jihadist who is part of the militant Khorasan Group, a U.S. defense official said Thursday.

The strike happened overnight Wednesday near Idlib, according to the official, who has access to the latest information about the strikes.

The U.S. fired at a vehicle it believes carried David Drugeon, a skilled bomb-maker in his 20s who also has ties to core al Qaeda members in Pakistan.

Double your pleasure!

I'm not sure who that doofus is but he's Dead Jim!

Update: Threefer!

You knew we scored they they started complaining about "civilians"

Civilians? What civilians?

U.S. military forces conducted airstrikes last night against five Khorasan Group targets in the vicinity of Sarmada, Syria, using bomber, fighter and remotely piloted aircraft. All aircraft exited the strike areas safely.

We are still assessing the outcome of the attack, but have initial indications that it resulted in the intended effects by striking terrorists and destroying or severely damaging several Khorasan Group vehicles and buildings assessed to be meeting and staging areas, IED-making facilities and training facilities. These strikes were undertaken only by U.S. assets.

The Khorasan Group is a term used to refer to a network of Nusrah Front and al-Qa'ida core extremists who share a history of training operatives, facilitating fighters and money, and planning attacks against U.S. and Western targets. These strikes were not in response to the Nusrah Front's clashes with the Syrian moderate opposition, and they did not target the Nusrah Front as a whole. They were directed at the Khorasan Group whose focus is not on overthrowing the Asad regime or helping the Syrian people. These al-Qa'ida operatives are taking advantage of the Syrian conflict to advance attacks against Western interests.

This network was plotting to attack in Europe or the homeland, and we took decisive action to protect our interests and remove their capability to act. We will continue to take any action necessary to disrupt attack plotting against U.S. interests.

Good News! US Anti-ISIS Partners Left in Syria Down to One
Even More Wonderful News! Its al-Qaeda

So now the moderate Syrian resistance really is al-Qaeda at least in Idlib province.

Two of the main rebel groups receiving weapons from the United States to fight both the regime and jihadist groups in Syria have surrendered to al-Qaeda.

The US and its allies were relying on Harakat Hazm and the Syrian Revolutionary Front to become part of a ground force that would attack the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).

For the last six months the Hazm movement, and the SRF through them, had been receiving heavy weapons from the US-led coalition, including GRAD rockets and TOW anti-tank missiles.

But on Saturday night Harakat Hazm surrendered military bases and weapons supplies to Jabhat al-Nusra, when the al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria stormed villages they controlled in northern Idlib province.

The development came a day after Jabhat al-Nusra dealt a final blow to the SRF, storming and capturing Deir Sinbal, home town of the group's leader Jamal Marouf.

As you recall last week al-Nusra also had a serious falling out with ISIS.

Red on Red Jabhat al-Nusra vs ISIS Deir el-Zour

I hope ya'll are stocked up on popcorn.

he fighting has escalated between Jabhat al-Nusra, the Islamic Front and their allies on the one hand, and the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) on the other, as it reached an unprecedented climax in the past few days, both in terms of expansion and violence.

he battlefields expanded from the countryside of Hassakeh, to the countryside of Deir el-Zour and Maadan, which is between Raqqa and Deir el-Zour. They also covered the town of Jarablos, in the countryside of Aleppo, and the countryside of Latakia. Many killings, assassinations, suicide bombings, executions and mutilations took place during the battles, during which the injured sometimes bled to death without being treated.

One of the probable reasons behind that is that Jabhat al-Nusra has changed its view on the legitimacy of the fighting. While it once considered this fighting a form of “sedition” that must be halted and that it shouldn’t join, after ISIS attacked and gained control of its headquarters and positions in Deir el-Zour last week, Jabhat al-Nusra issued an intense speech that was more a declaration of war. Jabhat al-Nusra was not expected to stand idly by while the fighting reached the city of Deir el-Zour, which the organization considers its capital, particularly after its losses in Raqqa, Hassakeh, and Aleppo. If Deir el-Zour is lost, nothing else would be left for Jabhat al-Nusra.

Jabhat al-Nusra has succeeded in regaining control over all its headquarters and positions which were seized by ISIS last week, most importantly the Koniko oil field. It also took control over the al-Jafra field, and the industrial area. Following the counteroffensive launched by Jabhat al-Nusra, the Islamic Front and some of the Free Syrian Army’s factions, ISIS was forced to withdraw all of its members from the countryside of Deir el-Zour and regroup in al-Shaddadi city in the countryside of Hassakeh. Local sources said that ISIS no longer has any presence in the countryside of Deir el-Zour, except for the salt mine in al-Tabani town, where its members are under siege.

ISIS for its part is accusing anyone who fights against them as being FSA or in bed with their enemies.

Crucifying and beheading opposing fighters.(graphic)

The hash for Deir el-Zour for becoming very active with reports of fighting and murders.

Australian Terror Recruiter Mohammad Ali Baryalei Is So Thunderstruck

He's totally 100% dead Jim!

AUSTRALIA’S most senior ­Islamic State fighter, who allegedly instigated a plot to behead a random member of the public in Sydney’s streets last month, has been killed in a coalition airstrike on the Syrian border town of ­Kobane, his friends have claimed.

Authorities were working last night to verify reports that ­Mohammad Ali Baryalei was “martyred’’ three days ago while fighting with Islamic State, the terror group to which he allegedly recruited scores of young Aus­tralians. The former drug-­abusing Kings Cross bouncer would be the first Australian fighter killed in the US-led bombing campaign that has been striking Islamic State targets inside Syria and Iraq since August.


Two of Baryalei’s Syria-based friends, who were fellow alumni of the Sydney “Street Dawah” group he led, told The Australian the one-time bit-part actor was killed in an airstrike at least three days ago in Kobane.

Mohamed Zuhbi and Abdul Salam Mahmoud, who have been undertaking humanitarian work focused on the Syrian port city of Lattakia, outside Islamic State’s caliphate, said the reports of Bary­alei’s demise were true.

“It was an airstrike, not sure by whom,” Mr Zuhbi said in an ­online interview with The Aus­tralian. “I personally received news from a brother who was with him for the most part of his journey so I believe it is true.”

See that's him right there! The one running for his life.... and losing.

You're welcome Australia, it was nothing.

Yet Another Terrorist Attack in Canada (update Two Shooters One Dead Another in Custody)

It appears that ISIS appeals for Muslims to attack nations that are part of the coalition are being heeded resulting in yet another attack.

A uniformed Canadian soldier has been shot at the War Memorial in Ottawa, and gunfire has also broken out inside the Parliament buildings

CPR was performed on the soldier and he has been transported to hospital by ambulance.

Police have told reporters that the suspect, reportedly carrying a "large weapon," possibly a shotgun or rifle, is still on the loose, and the parliament buildings are on lockdown. Prime Minister is safe and "off the hill."

The situation is still developing. Updates will follow.

A terrorist and recent revert to Islam was killed when using his car as a weapon earlier this week.

I'll bet you $100 that the perpetrator of this attack was on Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau's now defunct Facebook page friends list.

Which is why I feel Facebook removed Ahmad's page. So the public can't see all his other terrorist pals.

We'll update when we know more about today's um, incident.

Update: More here from CBCNews:

Update II: The Sudbury Star reports that one terrorist was arrested and the second killed inside the parliament building.

An arrest has been made after at least two people were shot in a hail of gunfire on Parliament Hill and the nearby cenotaph.

The victim appears to be a soldier. Several people were seen performing CPR.

Another body is reported to be on the ground just outside the Library of Parliament.

Veteran Affairs Minister Julian Fantino told QMI Agency at least one of the shooters was shot and killed inside the building.

Two men were seen jumping from a Toyota Corolla, followed by dozens of shots.

The car now sits empty outside Centre Block. It has no licence plates.

Journalists reported police were trying to keep them away from the scene. Those inside Parliament reported they were told to stay inside rooms with the door locked.

Update IV: Coincidence or motive?

It appears there was only one shooter despite earlier reports of two. ISIS has claimed the attack.

Update 10/23/2014 06:00 CDT: Robert Stacy McCain has more on Michael Zehaf-Bibeau

We learn that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the terrorist killed in his attack Thursday on the Canadian Parliament building in Ottawa, was both mentally ill and a convert to Islam:
Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau was born in 1982 and was the son of Bulgasem Zehaf, a Quebec businessman who appears to have fought in 2011 in Libya, and Susan Bibeau, the deputy chairperson of a division of Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board. The two were divorced in 1999. . . .

Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau grew up in Eastern Canada, including Ottawa and Montreal, and had spent time in Libya before moving to Western Canada to become a miner and labourer, according to friend Dave Bathurst.

...At the Burnaby mosque, Mr. Bathurst said his friend’s “erratic” behaviour — he did not elaborate — caused frictions with the elders at the house of worship, who asked him to stop attending prayers. At that time, Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau was living in a barely furnished single-room apartment.

Mr. Bathurst said he recalls his friend being arrested at the mosque a few years ago after bizarrely calling police to tell them about a crime he had committed many years before.

So we don’t know, and may never know, exactly how it was that Zehaf-Bibeau went from crazy Muslim to terrorist. Rather than focus on the details of that, however, let’s look at the general pattern in the context of history. What you find about killers like this is that the misfit or mental case has both real-life problems and an extremist ideology. Think about Lee Harvey Oswald who, like Zehaf-Bibeau, was the product of a broken home and, like Zehaf-Bibeau, adopted the ideology of a foreign enemy. Whereas the Canadian-born Zehaf-Bibeau became a Muslim in the 21st century, the American-born Oswald became a Marxist at a time when the Soviet Union was America’s greatest enemy.

What causes some people to adopt the ideology of hostile foreign powers? They are misfits and malcontents who are alienated from their own national society, hostile to the dominant culture. By identifying with an extremist ideology, this type of warped personality seeks a kind of empowerment that enables them to enact their fantasy of revenge on the society that rejects the misfit.

Islamic State of Losers Run From Kobani!

Best Headline Ever?

Islamic State fighters have been driven out of Kobani, the Kurdish town that straddles the Syrian-Turkish border, after weeks of heavy fighting, according to Kurdish sources speaking to RT.


A Kurdish commander said that ISIS retreated overnight – withdrawing by 2 km east and 9 km west.

The Kurds are now clearing the city. The Islamists have left behind suicide bombers hiding in the ruins of the various buildings in the city.

"We can still hear sporadic gunfire and explosions coming from Kobani," RT's Murad Gazdiev reports from the Turkish-Syrian border.

However, a victory announcement from the Kurdish fighters is yet to be made because the whole of the city has not been secured.

ISIS Murders British Hostage Allan Henning

Jawa Report can confirm that British hostage Allan Henning has been murdered by the Islamic State in revenge for this week's vote in Parliament approving strikes against ISIS.


The tape comes within hours of reports of coalition airstrikes against ISIS in support of Kurds besieged in Kobane.

An American Peter Edward Kassig is shown at the end and is threatened with death.


The murder is carried out by the same Jihadi John.

The blood of Davbid Haines is on your hands Cameron.

Alan Henning will also be slaughtered, but his blood in on the hands of the British Parliament.

(continues) Obama, you have started your ariel bombardment in Sham(Syria) which strikes our people, so its only right that we strike the necks of your people.

Update: Some background on Henning.
The wife of British hostage Alan Henning pleaded Saturday with ISIS to release him, describing her husband as a "peaceful, selfless man" who was only in Syria to help people in need.

"I cannot see how it could assist any state's cause to allow the world to see a man like Alan dying," Barbara Henning said, according to a message released by the UK Foreign Office. ISIS refers to itself as "the Islamic State."

Alan Henning, a taxi driver from near Manchester, England, was part of a team of volunteers that traveled to Syria in December to deliver food and water to people affected by the Middle Eastern country's devastating civil war.
He was abducted the day after Christmas by masked gunmen, according to other people in the aid convoy

May he rest in peace and our prayers are with Mrs Henning and his family. May the Lord keep him and comfort his family

And let the UK know what we stand with them.

Oh No We Didn't Underestimate The threat

Or why James Clapper should be fired!Institute for the Studya of War:

ISW has predicted the rise of the Islamic State since 2012. Read our forecasts here.(pdf)
The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) provides accurate geostrategic forecasts and advanced warning of growing threats. ISW analysts have accurately forecasted the political fragmentation of Iraq and the return of al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), now the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), since 2011. ISW analysts have correctly predicted the origins, pathways, methods, and aims of ISIS’s return.

ISW conducts strategic forecasting as a core intellectual contribution to foreign policy. ISW’s leaders believe that strategic surprise can be averted by monitoring the trajectories of complex problems over time, even from unclassified information. Over the last 18 months, ISW has published a number of forecasts that anticipated the resurgence of AQI, the devolution of the Iraqi Security Forces, and the emergence of the ISIS campaign to control territory inside Iraq and Syria. This document is a compilation of forecasts made by ISW’s analysts that have come true. Strategic forecasting does not presume that complex situations will always unfold as predicted. ISW strives to apply concrete knowledge of the present in order to deliver insight about the future. ISW hopes that this policy makers can use these insights in order to take a proactive rather than a reactive posture to emerging crisis situations and prevent their escalation.

Except that the guy doing the firing was also the one who directed him to say a lot of stupid stuff. I mean canning Clapper without Canning his boss is just, you know, pissing into the wind.

The Blessed Release of The FBI Investigation of Samir Khan AKA Inshallahshaheed (Sticky)

It is my honor to post possibly the best post of my life, today.


Vice News:

In 2006, a high priority for the FBI was tracking the owner of a blog called Inshallahshaheed who frequently posted commentary in support of Muslim extremist groups and violent jihad.

The FBI feared that both the shifting tone of the blog entries and the dozens of videos the blogger posted to YouTube depicting terrorist operations indicated that he was planning an attack against the US, or intended to join up with militants in Iraq and Afghanistan to fight the US military.

Five years later, that blogger, Samir Khan, was killed in a CIA drone strike in Yemen alongside radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who the Obama administration had secretly targeted for death, setting off a fierce debate over executive power. Both men were affiliated with al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula — and both men were US citizens.

Jawa Report gets a mention.
The New York Times story that the analyst mentions was the first news report written about Khan. It was published on October 15, 2007 and examined his online preachings in the context of how radical jihadists use the Internet to spread their message.

Jawa Report PWNs Samir Khan for Hotlinking.

The Washington, DC analyst recommended that the agent in Charlotte read a post contained on an anti-jihad blog called the Jawa Report:

You will find more information that is new it will all be laid out for you by [redacted]. Please read the comments section if you need to. I am in great hopes you will lock him up once and for all. He is a traitor. He gives aid and comfort to the stated enemies of our government. He is more than just a propagandist as far as I am concerned.
As I recall Samir Khan was first outed publicly by a Jawa report reader's link to Blogger profile he has used after he first reverted to Islam but before Samir became a seriously radicalized al-Qaeda supporter. After looking at the writings of that old blog (Human Liberation - an Islamic Renaissance) and the Ignored Puzzled Pieces of Knowledge Blog it became clear the author of both blogs was the same person. The old Blogger profile contained Samir Khan's real name and location and included a picture of Khan.

We closed the comments on that post, but by then the cat was out of the bag that the terrorist blogger known as Inshallahshaheed (A Martyr God Willing) was indeed Samir Khan.

See post: Inshallashshaheed Outted: North Carolina Jihadi in the News (UPDATED)

The FBI's eyebrows were raised when Samir wrote a post in favor of an al-Qaeda invasion of Manhattan. Now the post was a bit of a pipe dream, but i was clear where Samir Khan's loyalties lay and also posted on the sixth anniversary of 9/11.


See the original post here: Website: Soon, The Blessed Invasion of Manhattan-- "Special Gift" for 9/11( copy of the post is on page 138 of the .pdf)

The reference to Wordpress was removed when Wordpress Suspended Samir's blog. One of many Jawa takedowns on Samir.

Vice News has posted a pdf. from the FBI and its investigation of Samir Khan here.(embedded below the fold)

Our celebration of the Droning of Samir Khan also contains many links to Jawa Report coverage Inspire founder Samir Khan and his online activities.

American Traitor Anwar al-Awlaki Killed in Yemen!

Also see our InshallahShaheed archive for related stories.

Here is a Google search for Jawa Report coverage of InshallahShaheed and for Samir Khan.

Jawa Mentions in the .pdf thanks to Jane.

Jawa hits on page 134

Ppage 138 is a photocopy of jawa, 17 pages of jawa, dated 9/12/2007

348- 353 interesting

And the last word goes to Dr. Rusty Shackleford.

Samir Khan: Still Gay, Still Dead
Rusty: Still Laughing

Update: Just for kicks, one of female Indonesian blogger Jihadi Princess' old comments on Samir Khan's blog. Jihadi Princess is well known and inspired Jihad Jane, to the point that some days I still get them mixed up.


Update II: Jihadi blogger and Atlanta teacher Al X (stewart) gets a mention too. I think he's one of the few core Revolution Muslim members to stay out of prison.

An FBI file from 2007 said agents identify the blogger, based on comments posted on his blog, as a "30 year old male, black-Muslim convert living in the Southern United States" who "identifies his occupation as 'Mujahid in training.'" The FBI was worried the unnamed blogger's "rhetoric, especially concerning conducting violent jihad in the United States, could encourage Samir Zafar Khan of his path of escalation to actually conduct a terrorist act in the United States."
Al X is also known as Black Lion.

Update III:

The New York Times story that the analyst mentions was the first news report written about Khan. It was published on October 15, 2007 and examined his online preachings in the context of how radical jihadists use the Internet to spread their message.
The "First news report written about Khan", Really? Really?

Jawa Report readers were told about Khan months earlier although he had not been named publicly. So the NY times was hardly the "first news report about Khan".

Dear Vice, Suck it.

Update IV: Friend of Jawa Report Abu Yahood gets a mention too.

Racist ISIS Post Calls Obama The Mule of the Jews Calls on Muslims To Murder Kuffar in US, France and Australia

Another day another verdict on our necks brought you by the Religion of Peace™.

Femininican: In an audio recording distributed widely on social media Sunday, Islamic extremist group ISIS urged Muslims globally to launch attacks on civilians in member countries of a U.S.-led coalition opposed to their violent spread through areas of Syria and Iraq.
The statement begins with the usual All Praise be to Allah the Most Merciful the Most Beneficient line of BS. Then goes on about Obama being a Mule to the Jews and also contains a particular jab at the Filthy French.
And O Obama, O mule of the jews. You are vile. You are vile. You are vile. And you will be disappointed, Obama. Is this all you were capable of doing in this campaign of yours? Is this how far America has reached of incapacity and weakness? Are America and all its allies from amongst the crusaders and atheists unable to come down to the ground? Have you not realized – O crusaders – that proxy wars have not availed you nor will they ever avail you? Have you not realized, O mule of the jews, that the battle cannot be decided from the air at all? Or do you think that you are smarter than Bush, your obeyed fool, when he brought the armies of the cross and placed them under the fire of the mujahidin on the ground? No, you are more foolish than him.

You claimed to have withdrawn from Iraq – O Obama – four years ago. We said to you then that you were liars, that you had not withdrawn, and that if you had withdrawn that you would return, even if after some time, you would return. Here you are; you have not withdrawn. Rather you hid some of your forces behind your proxies and withdrew the rest. Your forces will return greater in number than they were before. You will return and your proxies will not avail you. And if you are not able to return, then we will come to your homeland by Allah’s permission.O mule of the jews, you claimed today that America would not be drawn to a war on the ground.

Then the speaker goes on to ask Muslims all over the world to kill Americans, French, Australians and pretty much everybody. Specifically issuing a religious ruling against civilians that their blood is halal and murdering Non-Muslim civilians in the west is the same as spilling the blood of a dog, ISIS considers dogs unclean, and you also a subhuman animal, you blood is Halal, or permitted for any Muslim to spill as he see's fit. They also ask Muslims to spit int he face of Non-Muslims in the west or to bash in our heads with rocks.

O muwahhidīn in Europe, America, Australia, and Canada… O muwahhidīn in Morocco and Algeria… O muwahhidīn in Khorasan, the Caucasus, and Iran… O muwahhidīn everywhere upon the face of the earth… O brothers in creed… O people of walā’ (allegiance to the Muslims) and barā’ (disavowal of disbelievers)… O patrons of the Islamic State… O you whohave given bay’ah (pledge of allegiance) to the Caliph Ibrāhīm everywhere… O you who have loved the Islamic State… O you who support the Caliphate… O you who consider yourselves from amongst its soldiers and patrons…Your state is facing a new campaign by the crusaders. So O muwahhid, wherever you may be, what are you going to do to support your brothers? What do you wait for as the people have become two encampments and the heat of the war increases day by day? O muwahhid, we call you up to defend the Islamic State. Dozens of nations have gathered against it. They began their war against us at all levels. So rise O muwahhid. Rise and defend your state from your
place wherever you may be. Rise and defend your Muslim brothers, for their homes, families, and wealth are threatened and deemed lawful by their enemies. They are facing a battle which is of the decisive, critical battles in the history of Islam. If the Muslims are defeated, they will be humiliated in such a manner that no humiliation compares to. And if the Muslims are victorious – and this will be the case by Allah’s permission – they will be honored with all honor by which the Muslims will return to being the masters of the world and kings of the earth.

So O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must strike the soldiers, patrons, and troops of the tawāghīt. Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents. Destroy their beds. Embitter their lives for them and busy them with themselves. If you can kill a disbelieving American or European –especially the spiteful and filthy French – or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be. Do not ask for anyone’s advice and do not seek anyone’s verdict. Kill the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military, for they have the same ruling. Both of them are disbelievers. Both of them are considered to be waging war [the civilian by belonging to a state waging war against the Muslims]. Both of their blood and wealth is legal for you to destroy, for blood does not become illegal or legal to spill by the clothes being worn. The civilian outfit does not make blood illegal to spill, and the military uniform does not make blood legal to spill. The only things that make blood illegal and legal to spill are Islam and a covenant (peace treaty, dhimma, etc.).

Blood becomes legal to spill through disbelief. So whoever is a Muslim, his blood and wealth are sanctified. And whoever is a disbeliever, his wealth is legal for a Muslim to take and his blood is legal to spill. His blood is like the blood of a dog; there is no sin for him in spilling it nor is there any blood money to be paid for doing such.

Allah the Exalted said, {And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush} [At-Tawbah: 5].

And He the Exalted said, {So when you meet those who disbelieve [in battle], strike [their] necks} [Muhammad: 4].

And Allah’s Messenger (blessings and peace be upon him) said, “The disbeliever and his killer will never gather in Hellfire.” And he said, “Whoever kills a disbeliever, then he can have his loot [which is on his person].”

So O muwahhid… O you who believes in walā’ and barā’… will you leave the American, the Frenchman, or any of their allies to walk safely upon the earth while the armies of the crusaders strike the lands of the Muslims not differentiating between a civilian and fighter? They have killed nine Muslim women three days ago by striking a bus transporting them from Shām to Iraq. Will you leave the disbeliever to sleep safely at home while the Muslim women and children shiver with fear of the roars of the crusader airplanes above their heads day and night?
How can you enjoy life and sleep while not aiding your brothers, not casting fear into the hearts of the cross worshippers, and not responding to their strikes with multitudes more?

So O muwahhid wherever you may be, hinder those who want to harm your brothers and state as much as you can. The best thing you can do is to strive to your best and kill any disbeliever, whether he be French, American, or from any of their allies.

{O you who have believed, take your precaution and [either] go forth in companies or go forth all together} [An-Nisā’: 71].

If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies. Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him.

Do not lack. Do not be contemptible. Let your slogan be, “May I not be saved if the cross worshiper and taghūt (ruler ruling by manmade laws) patron survives.”If you are unable to do so, then burn his home, car, or business. Or destroy his crops. If you are unable to do so, then spit in his face. If your self refuses to do so, while your brothers are being bombarded and killed, and while their blood and wealth everywhere is deemed lawful by their enemies, then review your religion. You are in a dangerous condition because the religion cannot be established without walā’ and barā’.

This is the compassion and mercy that the Religion of Peace has saved for you, And although ISIS cannot even correctly spell the insuilt to Christians, Cross Worshiper, correctly that doesn't mean they still won't cut your head off.

Wipe ISIS out, all of them.
