Here is a rather odd timeline of Muslim conquest fought during the so-called “dark ages” of Europe. Mentioned at length is Vlad III who has been considered a ghoulish figure, a modal of the Monster Dracula. He, In fact. Did serve to make incursion a difficult issue for Muslim expansionists.
Marchs into Vlads territory made by the Muslim Armies of conquest were a fearful affair by Vlads demonstrations of extreme violence. One example was the impaling of several thousand people across a point of entrance used by Muslim intruders. The Muslim army went home. To this day the locals do not vilify Vlad, they hail him as a national hero.
Three hundred years of frequent Islamic aggressions preceded Pope Urban the II’s first call for a Crusade to recapture the Holy Land. Atrocities were committed by either side, but the invasion of the holy land was not an entirely unprovoked aggression by the Christians as revisionists would have history recount.
The finest point that can be drawn by this posting is that the same movement east since Sparta’s King Leonidas, stood at the head of 300 Spartans and 1200 other Greek defenders resisting the incursion of Persian invaders at the pass atThermopolis. Now Greece, again, serves as a stepping stone to the back door of Europe for eastern Migrants fleeing the violence inheritant in their own societies.
You can hear them, restless and pacing the limits of their cage, sniffing the air and growling as the blood rises in their veins. The “dogs of war” await the words “Let slip the dogs of war!” Words crafted by Shakespeare , swollen with the meaning of that fateful moment when the last of the words have been spoken and action is the only path untread…..as yet. WAR! You can nose it in the air. You can see it in the face of the man who holds the leash. A grim gravitas lays heavily upon BiBi Netanyahus face as he girds his loins and moves his cabal to a defensible place Below ground and several tons of reinforced concrete. In the redoubt, waiting for the right wrong move to tell them when and where to strike. (Although they are at this moment tweaking Arab noses with a low intensity air campaign. Klikdapik for the story…….
NETANYAHU “GOES TO GROUND”
POTUS TRUMP IS ABOUT TO PLUG THE BREECHES OF IRANIAN BM SITES
THERE SEEMS TO BE A MEANINGFUL TEMPERAL CONECTION BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMPS INTENDED ACTIONS AND BIBI’S CURRENT ACTIONS.
POTUS PLANNING ON HOBBELING THIS BAD HORSE
I guard against giving too much credence to every declaration that every little Mullah mutters. Trump, however, has given more than a few Muslims the rectal spasm. His tendency to do what he says he’s going to do, the exact opposite of his predecessors strategy of “Leading from Behind” sounds a lot like “Dads home Johnny, now your gonna get it!”
You don’t whip out your pocket copy of “The Prophet” for and impromptu reading as a master stroke at pounding someone’s ass!
North Korea is lead by a sociopathic dwarf with nuclear war-heads ready for delivery, Pakistan, no real friend of the west, has nuclear eggs in the silos ready to go. Iran’s Mullahs lead Death to America (the great Satan) pep rallies every week, They collect atomic centrifuges , tons of raw radioactive material, early stage ICBMs and a promise to start Armageddan by wipeing Israel of the face of the earth We respond! WE DEBATE VAGINA EMPOWERMENT!
I was looking for some acceptable war-porn for my “Gun Camera” page. But the clarity and the quiet demeanor of the two war fighters is impressive. I felt it warranted a home posting. The use of what seems to be white phosphorous is a little extra special effect as well.
Freud felt that if you were to raise one generation right the troubles of the world would end.
Et tu Brute ?
When does education become propagandization? The Brits are a bit farther down the cultural pollution road than we are in the states. But it appears that we are neck and neck in the race to reprogram our population to accept the tenets of Islam! Thx Pat Condell
I really, really mean it this time !
There have been recent events in the area involving rockets fired across the Russian Ukraine border with one other commercial fight brought down. With the proliferation of weapons in a non-alilgned world such actions will be more common in the future. Welcome to a world of asymmetric warfare.
When you feel blue, he’ll go to Unicorn land with you!
It was foolish, and things considered, probably a sign of incompetence that our POTUS ditched the people of Iraq and left without leaving a security force. It is surprising that this handled like it was considering that the U.S. has successfully ameliorated post war situations far more complex than this, Post war Germany for and the occupation of Japan by MacArthur a good examples.
A little post traumatic hand holding has been recommended since Joshua fit the battle of Jericho, (the Jewish soldiers were not allowed back into the Jewish community until they waited about a week after Jericho fell. It was known three thousand years ago that post event decompression and reconciliation is a necessary part of war.
Of course Obama inherited the war, voted against the war while in Congress, and had more of a stake in Bushes war failing than he did in seeing its successful conclusion.
The chant becomes a mantra, the mantra becomes a dull drone…
…then you don’t hear me at all anymore.
The battered spouse just waits for the beating to come. Caring so little for the person they would be saving, they neither run away nor stand and fight. The most that can be expected is that they will turn away from the punches and kicks. The fact of the matter is that many die waiting for a miracle. I hope someone finds the courage to act while action is still possible. Netanyahu this ones probably yours. Sorry.
