“Regrettably, the Toyota Land Cruiser and Hilux have effectively become almost part of the ISIS brand,” said Mark Wallace, a former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, who is CEO of the Counter Extremism Project, a non-profit working to expose the financial support networks of terror groups.
How indeed. It's called commerce last time I checked. ISIS monsters are just that, but they ain't dumb. They buy Toyotas because they're great trucks. What US officials should be asking is why ISIS has so many FREE Humvees, complete with gun turrets and heavy machine guns to go with them. But that would be embarrassing.
Another brilliant observation by one of the many self appointed inbred board aristocracy. People like you will never see the light where assault weapons are concerned until one of your children is on a list of victims. Or more accurately, if it's one of your sons and he has actually been paying attention to his idiot dad, he'd more than likely be the shooter. Wonder if that might send you into silence? Probably not.
The US has had that technology for 20 years at least. Russians or anybody else can never hope to match the US in military tech, but then again, with the US claiming easily half of global military expenditures, they had better have a substantial lead. Problem is, US policy, especially in the ME, has been long since hi-jacked by the neocon corner and still is largely, which is amazing considering the catastrophic failures of ALL the neocon directed moves since 9/11. So US policy isn't 'US' policy, it's Israeli/Likud/AIPAC policy, and to a lesser extent, arms industry and Saudi policy, but it is NOT US policy. American legislators and WH executives sign on the dotted line, but that's about it. That has changed ever so slightly with Obama's last couple of years, but way too little and way too late. The blood soaked chaos you see in the ME is no accident. People say 'what went wrong' with US policy? Nothing went wrong, all according to plan. Israel, Saudi and the MIC that supplies the weapons thrive on violence and chaos, they use it to justify their hideous actions, Israel in Gaza, West Bank and Syria, Saudi in Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Libya (where do you think all the money comes from to pay the mercenaries in Syria. When the USSR collapsed under its own weight, the US really was in a position to change the world, and starting with 1st Gulf War, they did exactly that, just not the way most of us were hoping.
There is only one reason a youngster will buy a science kit for producing hydrogen, and that is to ignite it. Can't blame them, if I were still a boy, I'd do same. So anyway, don't count on it.
Maybe they'll actually be effective this time. Coordination with Syrian army would help. What they should do is bomb the Royal Palace in Riyadh. That would dry up funds for terrorist mercenaries in Syria pretending to be Jihadists, leaving only real Jihadists, which would be swept away promptly. Would also solve oil price plunge. Oh yeah, and kill the Wahabi monsters that reside there.
Boehner knows his beloved party is doomed, and is exiting as gracefully as possible. He's too far right for most Americans nowadays, like it or not, and still he looks to the left and sees almost nobody. Looking to the right, he sees rabid fools spouting venom and knows the dems could probably run a real Muslim and still win. Conservatives are leaving the party in droves. They won't vote dem necessarily, but they likely won't vote at all. 2016 Presidential election will be 60/40 at best, which is a huge landslide. I'd like to see Biden take out that witch just in time to break her Likud worshipping knee caps. Biden just lost a son, that changes a man, usually for the better. He's old, but that's good, it'll be his last hurrah and he doesn't owe anybody a thing, especially not Likud and the Lobby. He was humiliated over and over again by Netanyahu, that won;t be forgotten. He's also unequivocal about Saudi funding for ISIS. Israel and Saudi Arabia are America's biggest foreign policy problems right now, they are both rogue and stupid and murderous.
Now you're talking. With white and Latino as well, the scariest criminals around. Some of these guys are murderers, rapists, etc. People are dead and families destroyed because of them. The banksters make them look like pikers though, they have intentionally destroyed millions of families, all without getting their hands dirty, and the suicides that resulted are also on the banker's side of the ledger. Let the reamers be reamed, the old fashioned way.
10K should be filed any day, hopefully there will be some mention of the patent's status. Tim Young did tell me in an email he would address the patents in the coming 10K, though I'm not sure there is anything to address. If any have been awarded, that would be its own news, and if rejected, that too should be its own news. Patent applications usually require anywhere from 2-4 years to process, but usually, it's a lot closer to 2 years, so unless something has gone wrong, there should be at least one awarded before the year is out.
Didn't see that, but I'm sure it's all part of the antichrist's plan. The Pope is the AC, ain't he? Half of congress probably thinks so, even those pretending to be catholic like Boehner. I'll bet he wishes he had never thought up this crazy scheme of inviting the Pope to address congress. BTW, just to confirm that the Pope is the AC, Obama will convert to Catholicism after leaving office. He's a natural actually, unlike Tony Blair, who did convert after leaving office, and then went on to do nothing, excepting protecting Israel from international condemnation and ensuring the occupation only festers. Excommunication's too good for him!
The atheist part is fine, but you aren't just an atheist, you're an a.h.atheist. Francis is probably the best thing that ever happened for global exposure to one of your pet causes, GW. You think your hate filled rants are going to make a difference? I suspect Pope Francis's intercession will be a tad more impactful. When your blinders keep you from recognizing a good man for what he is, you should stop a second and at least wonder whether you should reconsider. But being the genius you are, you'll never do that.
If and when it happens.
This is OTC - wild west. Very few enforceable rules. Big risks, odds are excellent you lose everything, or most of what you invested. No way to hold him or any one else accountable. This ain't VW.
That's what 1.55V gets you these days, yuck. Anyway, like I've said before, until there is some exposure here and others besides Mr Young and HYSR SHs get excited about this, it's going to be ugly.
