Bizarre rant from Armstrong on Iraq deployment

I’m getting a bit sick of John Armstrong and his prognostications on defence matters.

New Zealand’s 100-plus contingent of military training specialists plus support personnel have barely arrived in Iraq. Yet the folly of this military (mis)adventure is already rapidly becoming apparent.

Last week’s fall of the city of Ramadi after Iraqi forces capitulated to Islamic State fighters, despite heavily outnumbering their enemy, has shifted the front-line in this sectarian struggle worryingly close to Taji, the huge military camp within which the New Zealanders are based alongside Australian counterparts.

Unless the Isis (Islamic State) advance is halted, the New Zealand Government is going to be faced with a major dilemma at some point in the not-too-distant future: pull the training team out of Iraq and lose face, plus earn black marks from the Americans and the Australians; or stick it out for the sake of good form and loyalty to allies and gamble on things not deteriorating with the risks this brings, including the possibility of casualties.

National’s predicament was neatly summed up by New Zealand First MP and former Army officer Ron Mark in an entry on his Facebook page last Friday.

“Latest update from the US on Isis. Taji is only 91km from Ramadi. The same distance I drive from Carterton to Wellington to attend Parliament. Isis could be in artillery range of our troops in 30 minutes.” He added a question for Mr Key: “What’s our plan, John?”

I’m not sure listening to a former truck mechanic on military matters is wise.  Read more »

Ted Cruz calls out the media and the left on gay rights

I’ve been saying this for months now…that the left and media are silent on ISIS and their treatment of women and homosexuals. They are more concerned with whether or not our soldiers might end up in combat and how that can be avoided than thinking about why it is that ISIS must be defeated.

Ted Cruz has been under attack in the US about his views on gay rights and he finally had something to say about the fascination of the media with his views.

Truth Revolt reports:

After a string of questions on his opinion on same-sex marriage and gay rights, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) called out the left and the leftist media (particularly MSNBC) for “obsess[ing]” over opinions on sexuality while “ISIS is executing homosexuals.”

The comments came during a campaign stop Tuesday in Beaumont, where Cruz met with county officials and other local leaders to discuss his positions on foreign policy, promoting economic growth, and defending the Constitution. When reporters began to ask him about his views on same-sex marriage, Cruz called out the left and the media for what he characterized as a myopic perspective on gay rights (transcript via Texas Tribune):

CRUZ: Is there something about the left—and I am going to put the media in this category—that is obsessed with sex? ISIS is executing homosexuals—you want to talk about gay rights? This week was a very bad week for gay rights because the expansion of ISIS, the expansion of radical, theocratic, Islamic zealots that crucify Christians, that behead children and that murder homosexuals—that ought to be concerning you far more than asking six questions all on the same topic.   Read more »

Are grumpy old men the best way to fight Islam?

There is a meme doing the rounds purporting to be some bloke complaining about not being able to join the army at age 62. It is quite funny

I am over 60 and the Armed Forces thinks I’m too old to track down terrorists.
You can’t be older than 42 to join the military. They’ve got the whole thing ass-backwards.

Instead of sending 18-year olds off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You shouldn’t be able to join a military unit until you’re at least 35.
For starters, researchers say 18year-olds think about sex every 10 seconds.

Old guys only think about sex a couple of times a day, leaving us more than 28,000 additional seconds per day to concentrate on the enemy.

Young guys haven’t lived long enough to be cranky, and a cranky soldier is a dangerous soldier. ‘My back hurts! I can’t sleep, I’m tired and hungry.’

We are impatient and maybe letting us kill some a**hole that desperately deserves it will
make us feel better and shut us up for awhile..

An 18-year-old doesn’t even like to get up before 10am.
Old guys always get up early to pee, so what the hell?

Besides, like I said, I’m tired and can’t sleep and since I’m already up, I may as well be up killing some fanatical son-of-a-*****.

I know girls, let’s go be ISIS brides, what could go wrong? …oh wait

It appears that the three girls who had a rush of shit to the brains and thought it would be a good idea to abscond to Syria to become jihadist brides for ISIS soldiers have discovered that life under the burqa servicing animals that wear uniforms of sorts isn’t the life for them.

Problem is they will now probably be killed.

Three British teenage girls were reported to be on the run from Isis (Islamic State) raising fears it might be the London schoolgirls who fled there earlier this year.

An unofficial monitor in Iraq claimed the terror group was hunting for three British jihadi brides who had fled after being married off to Isis militants.

They were said to be aged around 16 and that Isis was “thoroughly searching for them” in Mosul.

The report, from the Mosul Eye Facebook page, said the identity of the girls was not known, raising fears the girls could be Shamima Begum and Amira Abase, both 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, who left Bethnal Green in February to follow a friend to Syria.   Read more »

Miliband becomes an apologist for Islam

Ed Miliband is mad as a cut snake.

He is now advocating for laws that could make a crime of his own comments on Islam.

A future Labour Government is committed to outlaw the scourge of Islamophobia by changing the law and making it an aggravated crime, according to the Party’s Leader Ed Miliband.

“We are going to make it an aggravated crime. We are going to make sure it is marked on people’s records with the police to make sure they root out Islamophobia as a hate crime,” Miliband told the Editor of The Muslim News, Ahmed J Versi in a wide ranging exclusive interview.

Another ISIS mass killing of Christians

27BCFD0900000578-3045711-image-a-98_1429454332879

ISIS has released another video showing the mass killing of Christians.

VICE News reports:

A new video released Sunday by the Islamic State (IS) appears to show the gruesome killing of at least a dozen Ethiopian men through decapitation and shooting.

The video is described as showing two separate groups of hostages being killed by separate IS offshoots in Libya. The two groups are named as Wilayat Barqa, which claims to hold territory on the Mediterranean coast, and Wilayat Fazzan, which controls part of the country’s south.

The footage, which bears the hallmarks of previous IS propaganda films, including the logo of the group’s Al-Furqan media arm, is more than 29 minutes long. It begins with a description of Christian churches and calls the Holy Trinity — the father, the son, and the Holy Spirit — a form of polytheism whose worshippers deserve punishment.

Pope upsets Turks over comments about genocide

Pope Francis has upset the Turks over comments he made of the genocide of Armenians as the hands of Ottoman soldiers.

Pope Francis has sparked a diplomatic row by calling the massacre of up to 1.5 million Armenians 100 years ago “the first genocide of the 20th century,” prompting Turkey to accuse him of inciting hatred.

Muslim Turkey accepts that many Christian Armenians died in clashes with Ottoman soldiers beginning in 1915, when Armenia was part of the empire ruled from Istanbul, but denies hundreds of thousands were killed and that this amounted to genocide.

At an Armenian rite Mass in St Peter’s Basilica to mark the 100th anniversary of the mass killings, Francis became the first head of the Roman Catholic Church to publicly pronounce the word “genocide” to describe them.

Some European and South American countries use the term to describe the killings, but the United States and some others, keen to maintain good relations with an important ally, avoid doing so.

Turkey was swift to protest. “The pope’s statements, which are far from historical and judicial facts, cannot be accepted,” Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on his Twitter account.

“Religious offices are not places to incite hatred and revenge with baseless accusations,” he said.

Andrew Bolt: The Left’s sinister silence on Islamism

Andrew Bolt has noticed the same thing I have…the left wing is silent on Islamism.

WHAT will it take for many in the Left to openly condemn the Islamic State? Why this silence in the face of evil?

In January, the Islamic State threw two men off a tall building in Iraq for the “crime” of being gay.

In February, they threw another gay man off a building, this time in Syria and, when he somehow survived, had a crowd stone him to death.

IS is in a war against gays — not just against Jews, Christians and any Muslim thought insufficiently devout.

But what have our main gay representatives — largely Left-leaning — said in response to such savagery against gays?

The NSW Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby? Silent.

Victoria’s Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby? Not one press release.

Labor frontbencher Penny Wong, openly lesbian? Nothing.

Former Greens leader Bob Brown, our first openly gay senator?

Also nothing.

Current Greens leader Christine Milne? Not a tweet.

Indeed, not one of the 150 floats in Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian mardi gras on Saturday flew a banner of protest against this deadly persecution or the brand of faith which inspired it.

Yes, the faith. Many Muslim countries do permit gay sex, yet it is also true that all seven countries which punish homosexuality with death are Muslim, with the Koran damning gays as “people transgressing beyond bounds” who should have “rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)”.

So why no protest from the gay Left?    Read more »
