  • Don’t fret, GW at least half of that money will go directly to the US MIC and the bill is being held up until the Israelis rewrite their end of the deal to reflect that demand.

    What kind of meaningless question is that, Zach? “Theirs not to reason why,/ Thers but to do and die”

    Counterintuitive does not mean false, Sapp. I do reject the propaganda and reductionism offered about the IS and I do resist groupthink and self-centered certainty. I also reject the idea that the US is omnipresent or omnipotent especially in a country we had no military authorization to operate in and by the way we lost [...]

    Zach, I think you have swallowed the propaganda pill about who and what the Caliph’s Army is. What you call “fanatical nut-cases who don’t care if they die” I see as organized diciplined troops who are doing a good job at making the opposing soldier die or retreat. The suicide bombers they do use in [...]

    Good point, Jim but most commenters have real trouble with Palestinians or any Arabs being protagonists in this drama. As long as the Arab is the victim and conquered the sun still rises in the east. When Palestine is liberated and joins the Caliphate the conquorers will have their justly deserved chance to make mistakes [...]

    There are a lot of theories, Z but there is one fact the Iraqi Army disarmed, stripped off their uniforms and ran for their lives. With their numbers alone they could have picked up stones and destroyed the small ISIS force. The Iraqi soldiers had nothing to fight for except a corrupt military and a [...]

    I agree that the Islamic State has a challenging task ahead of them to administer the Caliphate but much of governing is delegating and it has been done before. The Caliph’s Army will fight and win this conquest but he has already put out a call for the administrators that will be necessary to run [...]

    You must have read a different version of Bibi’s statement than I did TD, I read him saying that Israel is in a true war for survival and will do none of the things you propose, they will fight. Whatever the PA does is meaningless for the Bantustans they oversee and Israel will never give [...]

    I’m suprised by your comment, CT you are usually well informed about the ME. Google, ISIS Gaza, it will show reports from months ago about an ISIS ralley and show an ISIS fighter cell in full military regalia. On 7/1 the Supporters Of The Islamic State in the West Bank claimed responsibility for the three [...]

    Islamic State operatives are already in Gaza and the West Bank organizing Palestinians for the coming struggle. The Palestinians and the Islamic State share the same goal, the liberation of Palestine and the destruction of Israel. No one else in the ME or elsewhere will or have offered the Palestinians what they desire, the chance [...]

    This statement, by Netanyahu, reaffirms the point I have been trying to make that the Gaza conflict is about something much larger than some rockets and tunnels or even Hamas, it is directed at the real threat, the Islamic State and Palestinians joining forces to liberate Palestine. Israel has never faced a threat such as [...]

    The right to vote in a Democracy is fundamental but we don’t live in a Democracy we live under a Oligarchy. Under an Oligarchy the trappings of democracy are used to maintain the control of the Ruling Class. By exercising your right to vote under our system you are aiding and abetting the Oligarchs, this is why they spend billions of dollars to herd the rubes into the voting pens.

    I was too tired last night to recognize this topic as concern trolling about some Christians not wanting to pay their Jiziya. When compared with the actual topic of this diary, the butchering of Palestinians by the Israelis this tragedy seems rather overblown.

  • Following the hype and propaganda in the headlines about Iraq usually leads to a more realistic assessment. On 6-28 the BBC parroted, before any battle, “Iraqi Army routes ISIS rebels” in Tikrit. On 7-16 Reuters announced “Iraqi Army retreats from Tikrit” to their base in Anja 8 klicks from Tikrit. It is difficult to get [...]

  • Occasionally through all the propaganda and spin some clarity emerges. Netanyahu stated, a few days ago, that Israel is fighting for it’s “Home” which is a small statement that explains much of what is happening.

    Hamas and the Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank are in no position to actually threaten Israel as Home so who is this statement directed to and who is this war actually aimed at?

    Supporters Of The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the killing of the three Israeli boys on 7-1, they also criticize Hamas for being too moderate and threaten to slaughter the Palestinian Authority. The only organization that has the potential to threaten Israel and its existence as Home is the Islamic State and they are in all of the occupied territories organizing for the Liberation of Palestine.

  • I don’t see this as a major problem because most of the Tribal and Local Leaders are already aligned with them. They may have to spend time training the large number of new recruits they are attracting but that must have been planned for and accounted for in the timetable for the attack on Baghdad.

  • The cartographers are going to be pissed when they are required to remove lines from their maps not add new ones as they did after the fall of the USSR. The Islamic State’s first phase was Take Down The Walls when they opened the prisons and they are now in the Take Down The Borders [...]

    Fear and confusion are rampant in Iraq and mistakes will be made. If these people go to Kurdistan they will be held in camps and they will definitely be unsafe in Baghdad with the Death Squads. Once the conquest is complete most of the displaced people will return to their homes and lives. I don’t [...]

  • I don’t know if you saw the report about the Sunni Tribal Leaders meeting and reaffirming their allegiance to the Islamic State. It was a public meeting and statement from Erbil in the heart of Kurdistan which is in the process of cutting its ties to Iraq. This meeting couldn’t have occurred where it did [...]
