Play That Funky Fear Card

Opinion from the desk of the Editor:

 

There are two people with the Ebola virus and suddenly we have a global pandemic……and meanwhile there is a war being waged in the Middle East….the MSM is so damn transparent….this is to give the public something else to worry about…I mean how many worthless questions can be asked about 2 patients?  At least they, the MSM, is not fixated on the nude pics of celebs….for now.

The most effective way to gain the support of the public is the use of the fear card…..it worked in 1991….it work in 2003 and it is working now with the newest flexing of American international muscle….and to focus away from a war is by giving them another fear to obsess over…..enter Ebola.

Me?  I will stick with hitting people over the head about a war we did not need…….I am sure there are plenty of other blogs that will be obsessed over the virus if that is the direction you want to direct your fear….feel free to go there……For now I will be focused on an issue that will create more victims than the virus…..

Just when the need to strike into Syria the administration handed us, the people, a new more lethal bad guy….the Khorsan Group as it is called by our super dubber intel community…..they are poised to attack our country and rain down destruction……and as predicted….BAM!  The American people jumped at the need to eliminate these guys……

I among others started doubting the existence of this group…….if they are part of AQ then why give them another designation? My writings were joined by others that called into the intel community for more info…..since their word is virtually worthless we demand more concrete info than just their word………

But as usual, we doubters are not worth the worry……..and the FBI joined into the full court press…….

In comments on today’s “60 Minutes” program, FBI Director James Comey warned that the Khorasan group is “serious people, bent of destruction” who plan to attack the US “very, very soon.”

Comey insisted the US had to act as if the Khorasan strike was “coming tomorrow,” but conceded that they don’t know whether they plan to attack “tomorrow or three weeks or three months from now.”

There you have it a definitive answer to our calls for clarification……..

the Khorasan strike was “coming tomorrow,” but conceded that they don’t know whether they plan to attack “tomorrow or three weeks or three months from now.”  (Or ever….my words)

So basically, this group could hit is now or never……but it is imminent……after years of “success” against AQ we now have AQ that is threatening….again.  So which is it?  Did we do damage to AQ?  Or is it still as strong as it ever was?

A fear card is a tried and true form of propaganda……..give the people something to fear and they will follow.

The American people need to educate themselves and STOP fearing a maybe……

And then there is the Congress……..are they part of this massive propaganda effort?  Do we trust these people to make the right decision or are they just making a monetary decision?

One last jab at the total nonsense from the war propagandists……fear is a potent motivator…….and a well used tactic by those wanting war……and we Americans fall for the bullsh*t every time.

I have suggested that the appropriate name of our operation to ‘degrade and destroy’ ISIS should be….”Operation We Make This Sh*t Up As We Go”……….

The Fake Terror Threat Used To Justify Bombing Syria – The Intercept

Thanx to past deals the US has engaged in….I was suspicious when a “new” terror group popped up in the news conferences…..

I have been searching the internet for a confirmation….so far I got diddly…and I mean diddly squat!

It is disturbing to realize that few people bother to read such presses that I post for their information…….these are the first people to bitch and moan when they learn something they do not agree with…all the while the info was there and they were just too ‘busy’ to bother reading the information….it might take them away from Candy Crush for a couple of minutes…..

 

The Fake Terror Threat Used To Justify Bombing Syria – The Intercept.

And Then There Is Khorasan

In the beginning there was AQ……….then we had another bad guy….ISIS and now we have yet another bad guy bent on our destruction…….does anyone else see a pattern emerging?

The war begins.  US and its coalition has begun the war on ISIS.  And while they were fighting ISIS there was a side trip the planes and missiles took…….it seems that there is actionable intel that some heavy duty AQ affiliates are planning some sort of problems for the West and possibly western Europe……that group goes by the name of Khorasan.

I know the group sounds like the Courrasant of Star Wars fame…..but these guys are not some alien race trying to get by in the universe…..but rather a hard core AQ group set on destruction……

More than a third of the 22 US airstrikes in Syria weren’t aimed at ISIS. Instead, they targeted a lesser-known al-Qaeda cell known as the Khorasan Group—an organization that some US officials see as a “more direct threat” to the West than ISIS, the New York Times reports. Khorasan appears to be focused on recruiting Western jihadists in Syria. The group is attracted by their passports, which could make it easier to sneak bombs onto planes, CBS News reports. Last night’s airstrike’s hit a Khorasan training camp in Syria that was “nearing the execution phase” of terror attacks against US or European targets, an army official says, successfully disrupting those plans, according to USA Today. Pentagon press secretary John Kirby says the attacks were to be “major.”

Khorasan’s leader is 33-year-old Muhsin al-Fadhli, the Independent reports. A quickly-rising star in al-Qaeda, he has been linked to terrorist leaders like Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the head of al-Qaeda in Iraq, the Washington Post reports. Reports from the White House and UN note his involvement in al-Qaeda efforts in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran; he allegedly took a leading role in both fighting and fundraising for the group. Khorasan also has bomb technicians who learned from Ibrahim al-Asiri, the man behind failed underwear and print-cartridge bombs that made headlines, insiders tell CBS. The group is pursuing “high-profile attacks against the West,” says a counterterror official, noting its “increasing awareness of Western security procedures and its efforts to adapt to those procedures that we adopt.”

I am sure we will be hearing more and more in this group as the war lingers on……more info on the seal team of AQ……….

Not many people had heard of the Khorasan terror group until it emerged that many of the US-led airstrikes in Syria targeted the group—but some lawmakers say they’ve known about the threat for months, BuzzFeed reports. Rep. Peter King says he is surprised the name of the “lethal and dangerous” al-Qaeda cell is now public. “It was supposed to be top secret, classified, and it wasn’t until last week that an AP story had it in there,” he says. “But we weren’t supposed to talk about it.” Other officials say they were briefed on the threat months ago but didn’t know the name of the group or that of its leader, Muhsin al-Fadhli, until they appeared in the media this week.

American officials say the group is made up of al-Qaeda veterans from several countries who traveled to Syria under the orders of leader Ayman al-Zawahiri to plot attacks on the West—and the group’s activities were the source of recent airline security alerts, including a warning not to travel with uncharged electronic devices, the New York Times reports. Officials have confirmed that al-Fadhli was a target of the airstrikes, but it’s not clear whether he was killed, the Los Angeles Times reports. Khorasan was closely allied with the Nusra Front, another al-Qaeda affiliate, and that group has released a statement saying its leader, Abu Yousef al-Turki—also known as “the Turk”—was killed in the airstrikes, reports CNN.

Terrorism: Jealousy Is An Ugly Thing

Opinion from the desk of the Editor:

 

I am not talking about the atrocities these animals perpetrate on innocent people….not the beheading, executions, suicide bombers the whole list of despicable tactics…..NO the ugly I am speaking of in this piece is the…..JEALOUSY!

Yes, the terrorist of the different organizations are starting to get jealous over the press one is getting over the other.  It appears that some of these groups are pretending to be the defender of Islam and are committing crimes in the name of the religion knowing this will feed the hate and in turn make there acts ‘newsworthy’.

Thanks to the press ISIS has gotten all the free press lately, at least for the last couple of months….their quick rise to prominence, the beheading, the crimes like executions, kidnapping and selling women for profit….the press has gone all out to emphasize their crimes.

ISIS is drawing lots of attention from the other groups wanting the fame and notoriety…..and the groups are starting to throw everything into their trip back to the ‘top’…………like al-Qaeda………

With an even more brutal group of Islamic extremists capturing the world’s attention, is al-Qaeda feeling neglected? In what analysts see as an effort to grab the spotlight from ISIS, al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri has announced the formation of an Indian branch of the terror network that will “raise the flag of jihad” across the region, reports Al Jazeera. In a 55-minute video posted online, Zawahri called the new entity the “fruit of a blessed effort of more than two years to gather the mujahedeen in the Indian subcontinent” and vowed to bring Islamic law to the entire region.

Al-Qaeda disowned ISIS early this year, and while Zawahri didn’t mention the former affiliate by name, he appeared to be taking swipes at it with comments like “Discord is a curse and torment, and disgrace for the believers and glory for the disbelievers,” reports Reuters. Three Indian states with high Muslim populations have been placed on alert, though it’s not clear how much of a threat the new entity is. Al-Qaeda “is struggling for its legitimacy in the eyes of the radicalized Muslim world,” a top Indian security analyst tells the AP. Osama bin Laden is dead, and al-Qaeda’s “entire top leadership, apart from Zawahri and a few others, one by one have been decimated by the American drone attacks,” the analyst says.

Since the death of Osama the group has lost some of its luster and now they are tring to climb back on top and this could be their start or opening salvo, if you will.

AQ is not the only jealous group……remember back months ago and we were introduced to Boko Haram after they kidnapped a bunch of young girls….well since then they have continued their reign of terror in Nigeria with more kidnappings, the random killing of innocent civilians, attacks on military units and in all that time their leader has said that if there was going to be a caliphate then he would be the one to establish it…..

Thousands of refugees are fleeing northeast Nigeria into Cameroon, the U.N. refugee agency reported Wednesday, as extremists pursue a new strategy to hold land they are calling an “Islamic caliphate.”

Hundreds of Cameroonians also are abandoning their homes since Nigerian Islamic extremists last week began attacking villages in the neighboring country, UNHCR spokeswoman Helene Caux told The Associated Press.

In one instance Boko Haram fighters slit the throats of three people found in a Catholic Church in the Cameroonian village of Assighassia, she said. That also is a new tactic for Boko Haram, which previously had only kidnapped Cameroon citizens for ransom.

As you can see the major groups are jockeying for position as the world’s most brutal terrorist organization…..jealousy is an ugly thing…..and especially when it is between terrorist groups trying to out brutal each other all in a desperate need for the world’s attention.

Obama and Biden as well as other world leaders have thumped their chest and said that they will “destroy ISIS”….a lovely promise but the problem is that once destroyed there will be another to take it’s place and we start this whole exercise all over again.

The cycle will remain unbroken.
