Just because he’s a Kiwi doesn’t give him ‘victim’ status. He was a terrorist!

A Kiwi has been killed in a drone strike against an al Qaeda terrorist training camp.

Naturally the terrorist hugging opposition politicians are all aghast and their pals in the media think this is just dreadful.

Isaac Davison reports:

A Kiwi killed in a drone strike in Yemen had attended a terrorist training camp and may have been a foot soldier for al-Qaeda.

The man, whose name and age have not been released, died after an incident on November 18. It is understood his identity had only been confirmed recently.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed the New Zealand-born man was believed to have died in a counter-terrorism operation.

However, they refused to be drawn on the specifics of that operation.  Read more »

Oh dear, how sad, never mind. Suicide Bomb Instructor blows up his Iraqi Pupils

Promoted from the General Debate.

A suicide bomber instructor took his job literally and took out his entire class. Let me just take a moment to…oh stuff it…good job.

A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said.

The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

Twenty-two ISIS members were killed, and 15 were wounded, in the explosion at the camp, which is in a farming area in the northeastern province of Samara, according to the police and army officials. Stores of other explosive devices and heavy weapons were also kept there, the officials said.

Eight militants were arrested when they tried to escape, the officials said.

The militant who was conducting the training was not identified by name, but he was described by an Iraqi Army officer as a prolific recruiter who was “able to kill the bad guys for once.”  Read more »

More Yeah-Nah from Labour, this time over Syria and Kiwi terrorist fighters

Radio Live tweets:

And indeed it is true.

Phil Goff thinks that Kiwi terrorists ‘freedom fighters’ should be allowed to travel freely to Syria to shoot, kill, bomb and maim people who they don’t agree with , as free agents.

Stopping people’s rights to go abroad to fight for a cause that they believe in, and some of them are liberal democrats – people that we would associate with that are doing that, I think is wrong,”

The bureaucrats always win in the end, even with terrorists

In a sign of how corporate terrorism has become, new evidence suggests that Al Qaeda requires their terror subsidiaries to file expense claims.

The bureaucrats are everywhere, even in terror organisations.

Who knew al Qaeda had to file expenses?

More than 100 receipts and ­invoices discovered in a building occupied by al Qaeda’s North African branch in Timbuktu, Mali, show that it documented even the most minor expenses — apparently to satisfy terrorist accountants.

The paperwork includes receipts for the equivalent of 40 cents worth of tomatoes and a 60 cents for light bulb to $52 worth of sugar and $48 to repair a car.   Read more »

Green Taliban loses court case

The eco-terrorists Greenpeace have lost in court as they sought to challenge the licence to explore granted to Anadarko.

I hope they get smashed with costs.

Greenpeace has lost a bid to have the granting of Anadarko’s offshore drilling permit declared erroneous in the High Court.

Greenpeace’s case was based on Anadarko’s omission of annexes from the impact assessment it was required to submit to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) to be granted a petroleum exploration permit for an area in the Taranaki Basin. …   Read more »

Thousands of Kiwis travelling to Great Britain face having their phones seized and personal data downloaded and stored by police.

The issue has been highlighted by David Anderson, a British reviewer of terrorism laws, who is calling for checks to ensure they are not being abused.

You think you are tougher with mates around

Judging when and who you can take on is embedded in our psyche…but it turns out that our judgment is somewhat impaired depending how many mates you are with when it comes to working out whether or not your opponent is a threat or not.

The researchers tested this idea on the streets of Santa Monica California. They approached 149 men who were either on their own or in a group of 2 to 7 friends. Each participant was taken to one side and shown a picture of a turbaned, bearded terrorist pointing a gun. The photo was cropped so the aggressor’s physical size was hidden. The participants were asked to estimate his physical size and muscularity (the terrorist and rating scales are shown above).

The key finding was that participants with one or more friends tended to estimate that the terrorist was shorter by around one and a half inches, and less muscular (having more than one friend in tow didn’t exaggerate this effect). In contrast, participants who were alone or smaller stature tended to guess that the terrorist was more physically formidable.   Read more »

How big are her balls? Woman of the Year surely?

An incredibly brave mother of two and cub scout leader confronted the crazed Woolwich killers and attempted to talk them down:

woolwich-attackers_2570495b

A cub scout leader confronted terrorists just seconds after they had beheaded a soldier asking them to hand over their weapons and warning them: “It is only you versus many people, you are going to lose.”

A mother-of-two described tonight how she put her own life on the line by trying to persuade the soldier’s murderers to hand over their weapons.

Cub scout leader Ingrid Loyau-Kennett selflessly engaged the terrorists in conversation and kept her nerve as one of them told her: “We want to start a war in London tonight.”

Mrs Loyau-Kennett, 48, from Cornwall, was one of the first people on the scene after the two Islamic extremists butchered a soldier in Woolwich, south east London.

She was photographed by onlookers confronting one of the attackers who was holding a bloodied knife.  Read more »
