Iran: Trying very hard to start a war with the US

(Iran) It has been reported that the mad mullahs have been baiting US Navy ships transiting the Strait of Hormuz (a natural choke point). This they have been doing by racing boats up to 200 meters away from warships sailing in international waters, ignoring all attempts by the these ships to warn off these fast approaching seaborne vehicles (radio, flares and horns) and then turning away at the last moment before the Navy wipes these boats off the face of the earth.

So the question we must ask is why are the mullahs risking everything in which to pull the tail of the tiger?

(1) For a start, they are Muslims. Yes, that could be construed as offensive, but the fact remains that face is everything in the Islamic culture and even more so in the Middle East. So looking good against a powerful enemy (but often against a weak one) is the thing to do. Just look at how Hamas and Hezbollah love to scream victory against Israel every time they get the shit kicked out of them, in which to see what I mean.

(2) It allows them to play the victim card if their thugs get slotted.

(3) It allows them to claim revenge for the kicking they received off the US during operations Nimble Archer and Praying Mantis where the Iranians found out the hard way that when the going gets tough, the tough get going.

(4) Finally, the main reason, the Iranians want to ensure some of their idiots get killed at the hands of the Americans. This will allow them to launch a few anti-ship missiles at ships transiting the Persian Gulf in which to close it down for a few weeks. If the US retaliate, all the better, as the result will be the hike in crude oil prices which for the past few years have dropped, allowing Iran to replenish its depleted kitty which has been hit hard by the fall in oil prices.

Problem for Iran is, the non-liberal world is wise to its plan of action.

Spain: Gang of Arab men attack women for saying 'no'

(Puerto Banus) A French Muslim took umbrage at being given the cold shoulder by a girl whom he tried to chat up in Spain today. Instead of walking away, he decided to touch her up. When the girl's friends saw this and came to her rescue. The French Muslim with the wandering hands decided to teach her a lesson by breaking her nose. His friends, on seeing their brave fellow thug being berated by a gang of young women, decided to show them how real men fight.

Thankfully, a British tourist came to the girls' rescue and decked one of the thugs. Police arrived soon after and broke up what they thought was just a group of people having fun, until they spotted an unconscious girl on the floor. They arrested 4 of Allah’s favourite misogynists, with the other six doing what Muslims do best - running away. A man who saw the incident reported it as follows:
'The group of (French) Arabs gave the English girls a real bashing. 'One of them wanted to speak to one of the women and the woman wasn't interested and told him to leave her alone.

The son of a bitch began touching her up and putting his hands everywhere you could think of and her friends rushed over to defend her when they saw what was happening. The idiot who started it all then punched the girl in the face and left her on the floor for three minutes with her face smashed in and her nose broken.'

After that it all kicked off and the men and their friends...began to hit and kick the women as if they were fighting with men. They were doing everything, even kickboxing. The women were getting a real kicking and then a British man who was nearby stepped in and put one of the men on the ground. ‘But he said the police arrived just in time to prevent the have-a-go hero getting beaten up by the French gang.
And all I hear from the liberal world is 'Islamophobia'. Maybe they should look into the meaning of the word 'phobia' and wonder why that is?

The current situation in Aleppo and that Turkish move into Syria

In Aleppo, the Syrian army backed by Hezbollah has moved to close the gap in their siege which was opened up by the militants around a fortnight ago. Supported by tanks, artillery and from the air, they have advanced to the artillery school and defeated a militant fightback which has cost them dearly. The video below shows the militant retreat after they failed to take Umm al-Qura hill.

Turkey has decided to clear the border of ISIS elements by sending in the troops to do just that. Funny enough, whilst the vast majority of victims of the suicide attack at the weekend wedding were Kurds, the Turks have decided to share their love by attacking them also.

The hypocrisy of the Islamic world

(Israel) Over the weekend, the peaceful and democratically elected government in the tiny Islamic statelet of Gaza decided to lob a rocket into Israel. Israel retaliated by striking 5 targets in Gaza in which to send the message - don't mess. 1 person was injured, which follows other Israeli responses to the Islamic habit of attacking the Jew (or in the West, the non-Jew), showing that the IDF goes well out of its way in which to reduce the chance of collateral damage.

Now, if anybody wishes to contest that statement, the last bun fight in 2014 saw around 2,250 people killed in Gaza in 7 weeks of heavy conflict in one of the most densely populated areas of the world. That works out at around 46 people a day. Yet Israel is supposed to be the most powerful nation in the region, it has control of the air and sea and yet when it comes to shooting fish in a barrel, they can only kill 46 people a day. (Note to me: one death is one too many.) Inside Syria, ISIS can kill hundreds on a daily basis, and yet nobody batters an eyelid. Only the other day, the Iraqis hung 36 ISIS idiots who murdered over 1,700 soldiers in one town over a week, and nobody outside of Iraq can give a damn. Oh, they do for the hung wankers, but the victims, nah.

So on Monday, why was I not surprised at how the Islamic world was up in arms over the Israeli reaction (5 strikes, injuring 1 man)?

The Turkish foreign ministry called Israel’s strikes disproportionate in a statement that continued:
The fact that our ties with Israel have normalised does not mean that we will remain silent in the face of such attacks that target the Palestinian people. On the contrary, we will continue to (defend) the Palestinian cause.
Yet after the suicide bomb attack which struck the wedding party the other day on the Syrian/Turkish border, the Turks have decided to invade Syria, sending in troops, militia, all supported by the Turkish and American air forces. Not only that, but the Turks have decided to share their love by hitting the Kurds as well.

Funny how to the Islamic world, when Israel fights back, it's a human rights issue, when they do so, it's justice.

British woman, 21, killed in Australian backpackers' hostel attack by knifeman 'shouting Allahu Akbar'; Police: 'We don’t have a motive yet'

(The Telegraph) A British tourist killed at a hostel in Australia by a Frenchman yelling “Allahu akbar” has been named as Mia Ayliffe-Chung.

The 21-year-old studied psychology and childcare before travelling to Surfers Paradise, in the state of Queensland, and working as a nightclub waitress.

Police arrested a 29-year-old Frenchman and are investigating whether the “senseless” knife attack was motivated by Islamic extremism.

The man killed Ms Ayliffe-Chung and injured a 30-year-old Briton as well as a dog. [...]

According to witnesses, the killer yelled “Allah Akbar” – Arabic for “God is greater” – during the attack and after he was arrested.

“We don’t have a motive yet,” said superintendent Ray Rohweder.

“Police were confronted with a terrible scene when they arrived. There were up to 30 people who witnessed the incident.”

A local resident was also injured, but not seriously, and a dog that lived on the premises was killed.


Developing: Gunmen attack American university in Kabul, students flee; 1 dead, 26 injured

(LAT) Gunmen attacked the American University of Afghanistan on Wednesday evening, according to eyewitnesses.

At least one person was killed in the attack and 26 were injured, according to Said Wahidullah Majrooh, spokesman for the ministry of public health.

Several students were trapped inside the building, witnesses said, and the wounded were being taken away by ambulances. About 40 students had managed to escape the building, a police source said.

University President Mark English told the Associated Press that security forces had arrived on the scene soon after the attack began around 7 p.m. Gunshots could still be heard as of 9 p.m. local time.

“We believe that two assailants have been inside; our forces are trying to find their exact location and engage,” said Sediq Sediqqi, a spokesman for the Ministry of Interior. “It’s not over yet. As soon as we see injured people, we’ve been helping them get out.”

A student who escaped the attack told of hearing gunshots and an explosion.

“My class was over, and I was planning to leave. Then suddenly I heard gunshots,” said Ahmad Mukhtar. “I tried to find shelter, but a blast took place and I ran toward a wall and managed to escape by climbing the wall and injured my leg.”

“Several students have been killed and injured; many students and professors are stuck,” a student inside the university told The Times over the phone. “Some managed to escape, but we are still here. Please help us.”

Wahidullah Hasani said his cousin, a student, was still stuck inside the building. "I called her half an hour ago, she asked me not to call her again, because the assailants were close and may notice the phone light and her voice,” he said. “She hung up and said ‘Forgive me if we don't meet again.’”

Associated Press photographer Massoud Hossaini said he was in a classroom with 15 students when he heard an explosion on the southern flank of the campus.

“I went to the window to see what was going on, and I saw a person in normal clothes outside. He shot at me and shattered the glass,” Hossaini said, adding that he fell on the glass and cut his hands.

The students then barricaded themselves inside the classroom, pushing chairs and desks against the door and staying on the floor.

Hossaini and about nine students managed to escape from the campus through a northern emergency gate.

“As we were running, I saw someone lying on the ground face-down. They looked like they had been shot in the back,” he said.

Hossaini and the nine students took refuge in a house near the campus.

Adam Stump, a Pentagon spokesman, said a "small number of advisors" from the U.S. military are assisting Afghan forces as they respond to the attack at American University in Kabul

"These advisors are not in a combat role," he said. "They are advising their Afghan counterparts."

The attack comes two weeks after two university staff members were kidnapped from their car by unknown gunmen. Their whereabouts are still unknown.
