Sandcrawler PSA: Wrong Goal Wrong Strategy

There was never any way to win in Afghanistan, there was a way to exact payback from al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

Weekly Standard:

Earlier this month, an American delegation led by Zalmay Khalil-zad, who was recently appointed U.S. special representative for Afghanistan reconciliation, met with Taliban representatives in Doha, Qatar. This was not a sitdown between two sides equally committed to winning the war. The Taliban, which contests or controls more than half of Afghanistan, knows the United States is desperate to leave and not even trying to win.

And that should have been the goal and the strategy, make the Taliban and al-Qaeda regret ever thinking about attacking the USA and leaving them flat on their back.

No nation building, no establishing a half-assed constitution either there or in Iraq.

Nope, go in there, break shit and then break some more shit and go home. If they get uppity again, break their backs and leave.

We just can't seem to get the simple things. You show that you can make them pay and pay dearly and then declare victory and walk out when its obvious they got their ass handed to them. Its the semantics. Extended conflict snatches defeat from the jaws of Victory every. single. time.

Afghanistan will never be anything other than what it has been. State crushing works so much better than state building.

Well F*ck Me A Running


Mounir el Motassadeq was sentenced to just 15 years behind bars for accessory to murder in 2006, but received credit for time served after his initial arrest in 2001 — and was freed shortly before finishing even that stretch to be deported to his homeland.

German courts ruled that he was part of the so-called “Hamburg cell” with ringleader Mohamed Atta and two of the other extremists, and was aware the three planned to hijack and crash planes — if not all the details of the plot, which took 2,997 lives on Sept. 11, 2001.

El Motassadeq, who admitted to training at an al Qaeda camp in Afghanistan, helped “watch the attackers’ backs and conceal them” by paying their tuition and rent so they could keep up appearances as students in Germany as they plotted, the court found.

Police allege that Hunt approached a group of anti-abortion protesters on Sunday, Sept. 30 at about 2:30 p.m. in the area of Keele Street and Bloor Street West and began to scribble on their signs and clothing with a marker.

When he was confronted by one of the protesters, Hunt kicked her in the shoulder, knocking the phone from her hand, police said.

In that incident, Hunt has been charged with eight counts of assault and seven counts of mischief under $5,000.

Also it seems this one of Jorday's hobbies. Bonus charge!
On Thursday, Aug. 2 at about 12 p.m., police were called to to the area of Dufferin Street and Dundas Street West for reports of an assault at an anti-abortion rally.

In that incident, Hunt has been charged with one count of assault.

Tiny Minority of Islamic Terrorists Responsible For About 23% Of Global Terrorism

Islamic State was just a small minority of Muslims, however their rate of committing terrorist acts, against everyone mind you, was huge.

With the elimination of Islamic State so far global terrorism is down 23%.

This is a good thing. Good riddance.

Senator John McCain Passes Away

7401ffdcbf106d772053e817d94f5c8d.jpgOur thoughts are with his family, may the Lord take him.

NBC:
John McCain, who shed a playboy image in his youth to become a fighter pilot, revered prisoner of war and both an independent voice in the Republican Party and its 2008 presidential nominee, died on Saturday, little more than a year after he was told he had brain cancer. He was 81.

McCain’s office said in a statement "Senator John Sidney McCain III died at 4:28 p.m. on August 25, 2018." He announced on July 19, 2017, that he had been diagnosed with a glioblastoma, an aggressive type of brain tumor. On Friday his family announced he was discontinuing treatment.

"With the Senator when he passed were his wife Cindy and their family. At his death, he had served the United States of America faithfully for sixty years," McCain's office said in the statement.

His daughter, Meghan McCain, said in a statement that "I was with my father at his end, as he was with me at my beginning."

Meanwhile in Berlin

Religion of something something.

here has been public outrage in Germany after video footage emerged of two Jewish men being violently assaulted in an apparent anti-Semitic attack in central Berlin.

The two men, who were both wearing kippah, traditional Jewish skullcaps, were insulted before being set upon and whipped with a belt in one of the city’s most fashionable neighbourhoods.

A group of three unidentified men can be heard on the video clearly shouting “Yahudi”, the Arabic word for Jew.

The two victims stood their ground and threatened to call the police before their main assailant was dragged away by his companions.

The incident was videoed by one of the victims, who was named by Israeli television as Adam Armoush, a 21-year-old Israeli citizen living in Berlin.

Non Violent Iranian Feminist Vegan Animal Activist Attacks Youtube

Lets let Heavy.com do the heavy lifting for us, I mean why not?

38-year-old woman who was angry at YouTube and believed the company was discriminating against her videos, causing her to lose money and views, opened fire with a handgun at the video-sharing website’s California headquarters Tuesday, wounding three people before fatally shooting herself.

youtubeshooter.jpg

Nasim Aghdam, who was born in Iran and lived in southern California, was active on YouTube and often ranted about the company in videos on her channels, on Instagram, and on her own website. It is unknown if this was a potential motive in Tuesday’s shooting, but police have not confirmed that. Police confirmed her identity Tuesday night.

Aghdam identified as Persian and often posted videos and other posts in English, Turkish and Farsi, the official language of Iran. She had various online aliases including Nasim(e) Sabz and Nasim VeganBreeze. Original reports listed Aghdam as being 39, but public records indicate that she was 38 and would have turned 39 on April 5, two days after the shooting.

.....“Nasim the Persian Azeri female vegan bodybuilder, also animal rights activist promoting healthy and humane living. Nasim produced and launched the first Persian TV commercial and music video (Do You Dare) regarding animal rights and veganism through international Iranian satellite Television in 2010,” read the “About” section on her YouTube channel.

Her YouTube channel has been deleted. She had more than 5,000 subscribers, and her videos had been viewed more than one million times.

Um, ..... anyway as they say read the rest.

Also shooting at Youtube is a "severe violation" of their TOS.

Witnesses

The Gospel of Luke:

And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.

But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them. And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.

And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.

And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread. And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet. And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?

And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. And he took it, and did eat before them. And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things.

And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Christmas Comes Early For David Wright

He got 28 years for conspiring with his nephew to murder Pamela Geller. After that fell through his Nephew Ussamah Rahim tried to stab some cops and got himself dead.

The plot to behead Geller, of New York, was never carried out. Instead, Wright’s uncle Ussamah Rahim told Wright on a recorded phone call that he decided to go after “those boys in blue,” referring to police. Wright told his uncle that was “beautiful” and encouraged him to delete all the data from his computer before carrying out his attack.

Hours later, Rahim was fatally shot by authorities after he lunged at them with a knife when they approached him in Boston.

Geller, who spoke at Wright’s sentencing, urged the judge to sentence him to life and said it was “impossible to overstate the devastation” he had brought to her life. Geller said she had been forced to live in fear and spend tens of thousands of dollars on security.

Zionists R Zionist

I was reading this crap on CNN, you know, about how bad it could be if Trump recognizes that Jerusalem, or the city of Zion where Mt. Zion is located, is recognized as the Capital of Israel.

Why declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is so controversial
You know Israel, Moses, King David and stuff.

CNN simply explains that "Palestinians" and Muslims throughout the Islamic world will be outraged because the Philistines, pardon me, Palestinians also claim Jerusalem as their capital, even though in ancient times the Philistines were from Gaza City.

But ignore all that crap. The point CNN is dancing around is the real reason Muslims will be outraged is Islamic Supremacy. Like White Supremacy but with the word Islamic, its the same same.

While the entire Islamic world may not be terrorists, BUT Muslims or Islam if you will is currently in control of what is popularly known as the Temple Mount or the Dome of the Rock, the Temple Mount is on what is known as Mt. Zion.

If you have looked into Islam at all it only recognizes Islamic conquest as legitimate, it also believes that all Islamic conquest and only Islamic conquest is legitimate and permanent. It also says that all other religions and non-Muslims are subservient to Islam and Muslims. On top of that Islam is not a very big fan of Jews in general, I mean if you actually look into it.

So Islam is Zionist, in the sense that keeping control of Jerusalem is critical to its world view, of Islam is the supreme way of life, as the one true religion. To keep us appearances it must control Mt. Zion, for its own sake.

Whereas Israel as we all know has a very long history and making its capital Jerusalem makes every bit of sense it flies in the face of the doctrine Islamic Supremacy.

Add to this the general hatred of Jews among the Muslim population and there you have the real reason that recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital will be met with violence and terrorism by the Islamic World.

That's the bottom line strait up. A person once asked me what the warning signs of Islamic Terrorists are. It doesn't really matter if a terrorist is Islamic or some other flavor. The common thread is Anti-Antisemitism and hatred of Jews and Israel. That's strait up. Whomever tells you different is feeding you a line of crap.

Update: Right on queue Hassan Rouhani Recep Tayyip Erdogan declare Jerusalem belongs to Islam.

Rouhani has warned the U.S. against relocating its Israel embassy from Tel Aviv to al-Quds (Jerusalem), saying the “illegal” move would further destabilize Palestine and the region.

Rouhani stressed during the speech that “Quds belongs to Islam, Muslims and the Palestinians, and there is no room for new adventurism by global arrogance.”

He also emphasized that Muslims, including Palestinians, should stand up against the conspiracy to declare Quds as the Israeli “capital,” saying Muslim states and the OIC have a great responsibility in that regard.

See no mention of East Jerusalem, no according to Turkey and Iran all of Jerusalem "belongs to Islam".

Its naked Islamic Supremacy that prevents peace with Israel, always has been, always will be.

Sandcrawler PSA: STFU

No really.... Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up.

we bunch of broken hooting apes — are prone to break them. Everybody lies. Humans lie more under pressure. FBI agents are trained in two dozen ways to ratchet up the pressure on you without getting out of their chair — verbal, nonverbal, tone, expression, pacing, subject changing, every trick that any cop ever used in the box. You're only human. Unprepared, you will likely lie. Smart people, dumb people, ditchdiggers and neurosurgeons, lawyers and accountants, the good and the bad, they all lie. Usually they lie about really stupid things that are easily disproved. I'm not making a normative judgment here; surely it would be nice if we didn't lie. I'm making a descriptive statement: humans lie. Saying "I'll just go in and tell the truth" is like saying "I'll just start being a good person." Well, good luck. Look, you admit to being fallible in other respects, right? You admit sometimes you're unkind when you're tired, or sometimes you drink or eat more than you know you should, or sometimes you procrastinate, or sometimes you have lust in your heart? What makes you think you're infallible about telling the truth?
I just executed PopeHat's #1 listing there. Captain Jackass told so many last time around he didn't even show up. Too bad, I feel for him, because he was so going to let me have it. Oooops! Looks like he underestimated my power!

Men Shoot and Chase Down Kill Sutherland Springs Massacre Killer

So some Atheist murdered 26 people at a Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs Texas.

Nina Rose Nava, who went to school with the gunman, wrote on Facebook: ‘In (sic) in complete shock! I legit just deleted him off my fb cause I couldn’t stand his post.

‘He was always talking about how people who believe in God we’re stupid and trying to preach his atheism’Kelley walked into the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs on Sunday, dressed in black, tactical gear with a ballistics belt and an assault rifle, and began shooting, according to local law enforcement sources.

Kelley of New Braunfels, a suburb of San Antonio, was shot by Stephen Willeford, 55, before he climbed in an SUV to flee the scene, a local resident told DailyMail.com.

Another local resident, Johnnie Langendorff, who had witnessed the confrontation refused to let the shooter get away. Both he and Willeford, a local plumber, jumped in his truck and gave chase.

In a Facebook post, Langendorff's girlfriend Summer Caddel described how the pair had 'jumped in my boyfriend's truck and they chased that sick b*****d down in pursuit until the cops could catch up. He was able to run the shooter off of the road on 539!'

As they approached a sharp curve in the road, near the 307 and 539, Kelley appeared to lose control and his car swerved off the road.

Kelley was already dead when they found him. It's unclear if he committed suicide or died from his pursuers' gunshots.

There is a lot more on the victims here.

Depending on the motive it appears this could be the second murderous attack on people perceived as "right wingers" in the last few months. We still don't have a motive on the attack in Vegas.

So lets hope the solves this one.

West Springfield police responded to the apartment building at about 11 p.m. Monday. They found a bloody scene and the victim half inside an apartment with his legs extending into the common hallway.

The victim had “severe cutting injuries to his hands” and a “severe laceration to the crown of the head.”

The man was taken to a hospital, where he was stabilized and is expected to survive. His name was not made public.

Iran and Turkey Pretty Sure Jews Put Silly Idea About Freedom in Kurds Heads

Press TV: Where the Global Zionist Kihnspiracy is always front page news.

Chairman of Iran's Expediency Council Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi warns the United States and the Israeli regime are behind a “dangerous and treacherous” plot to partition Iraq, following an independence referendum held in the Arab country’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region.

“It is crystal clear that the US and Israel are the architects of this dangerous move and plot in the region and they seek to create a new Israel in the region,” Hashemi Shahroudi said during a meeting of the council in Tehran on Saturday.

He expressed great sorrow over efforts to instigate another act of sedition in Iraq’s Kurdistan region and break up the Muslim country, emphasizing that the secessionist “move is undoubtedly a major act of treachery against the region and the Muslim world.”
Interesting that the Kurds are majority Sunni Muslim, Yet the Sunni Turks and Iranian Shia, both former imperial powers both agree that these Kurdish Muslims should never have self determination.

Both coddle and finance ISIS, Hamas and AQ so long as its killing Kurds, Jews or Americans. You know, free decent people ruling themselves... that is what they are both against. That little Shia/Sunni schism can wait so long as there are more important things, like Free Kurds to attend to.
