Happy New Year! Thank you, Israel.

Nimitz Aircraft Carrier

The Admiral Nimitz Aircraft Carrier

Before the holiday begins tonight, we should appreciate how beautiful Obama’s delay is on Syria.

We have a full self-contained Marine ground invasion force steaming there by ship, quite visibly… like the Brits did with the Falklands.  It has beach landing crafts, two-thousand troops (although they claim they have only(!) three-hundred ground force aboard;  also amphibious hovercraft, helicopters, and vertical take-off support attack jets, ospreys, and harriers.   Nice.  It’ll be coming up the Red Sea toward Suez.

The Nimitz carrier group got under way for its scheduled return to its Washington State home, but ‘spun about’ and is ‘steaming’ steadily toward the Red Sea.

On the weekend, they stacked two-hundred Tomahawk missiles against the Syrian coast, having brought up two more missile destroyers from the western Mediterranian, making it now five destroyers up close.   (Anyone remember Zeigfried in “Get Smart”?   “Nuthingk… Nuthingk…  Five destroyers…  Nuthingk…”)

It’s all for show, of course, since we could hit them using only land-based planes from Aviano, Qatar, etc.

At first the Arabs laughed at Obama’s weakness in delaying and looking to congress.  Not for long.  The final blow that sent him sweating bullets was shooting off the two missiles without warning yesterday.

Russian early warning satellites detected them and sent the panic incoming to Assad.   After an hour or so of silence, Russia broke and publicly asked what the heck is going on.

We said nothing.

Eventually Israel says, “Oh, what? yea, we were testing some tracking gear.”

Love it! Read the rest of this entry »

Live Music in Bamako — Live for How Much Longer?

Timbuktu was Islamic art, not Buddhist!  In Mali they destroyed Islamic things that they disagreed with! Mali touches the western Sahara, very far from Buddhists.

Art and architechture with carvings depicting Islamic scenes they said is disallowed. Also destroyed I think only some of the vast collections of ancient manuscripts, 12th-15th century. Its reported they are on all subjects of the time from a giant library that was at the crossroads then. Islam once was less primitive than now it seems. very strange.

It was different than Afghanistan Jordan. Afghanistan on the Pakistani side is where Buddhist and Hindus once lived. None were or are Arab.

The Pakis are like Indians, were mixed all through much of India and still are, but made the two additional all Muslim countries in ’48-50.

The Brits lost Palestine, India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and more, in ’48-’50.

There is a flood of musicians, traditional, and electric guitar players, singers, drummers, horn players, Sam from the piano. At first they were killing people who kept playing, but they have started to jail most people, or beat them.

All secular music is outlawed. Clothing is proscribed, including mens. No haircuts, alcohol, or radio, theater; it’s suddenly a giant economic terrified dead zone.

The group said to be the prompters and enablers of architecture destruction are the Egyptian Salafists (salafis). They are more intelligent and manipulative than the rural Afghanis or Malians. It’s said they pushed the Afghani or Paki Taliban to blow up the Buddha giant ancient statues.

And- the nutjobs called for the destruction of the sphinx and pyramids after the brotherhood got in. It seems that wasn’t going to fly, so they shut up about it.

The Salafi jihadi started the new fight in Syria against the Kurds in the Kurds’ home county, by breaking up their liquor stores, legal for them under Assad. These Kurds are said to be “feminists” recently by Arab reporter.

I think that inter-rebel fighting stopped. Actually the kurds were trying to stay neutral, but they don’t want “islamists”, all kurds seem to be kinder and more modern than whoever has them surrounded in all those countries. The world would be better if we had a Kurdistan. They seem to be too decent to hold their own, and got screwed by pappy bush. Saddam gassed them, the Turks torture them, Assad protected them.

The musicians are all collected in Bamako. That must be a hot place to play now. There all packed in there sharing housing.

Bamako is protected from Islamists by normal Mali govt. troops, which still hold the southern third of country.

A Shell Game

Tammuz Missile

They spent a lot of Money to make sure Nobody got hit.

Israel used an expensive precision missile containing advanced ‘electro-optic’ technology, an advanced form of the ‘Tammuz”; with guidance based on longer range ‘Spike’ navigation system from ‘RADS’.

Though the General claims that all and any Syrian battery firing into Israel may be targeted, and that they do not know if there were any Syrian casualties at the targeted artillery post they fired on, it is quite Obvious that they spent a lot of Money to make sure Nobody got hit.

Later IDF official spokesperson called it a warning.

Israeli Soldier With Spike Launcher

After the shot, Israel also warned the United Nations to caution Syria to curtail the accidental firing by Syria — now amounting to seven or eight wayward shells — into Israel.

They stated that it is clear the Syrians were targeting other Syrians along the border, but that no more wayward shells would be tolerated.

New Israeli Visa Needed

A Turkish military truck transporting a mobile missile launcher into Syria.

Our exclusive-to-Jewish-Jihad intemperate correspondent is still on the job.  Today he writes:

Syria claims to have killed four Turkish military imbedded in a rebel unit, I think they were in Aleppo.

I predicted many weeks ago that the Turks would do them in for the west. The trick is to keep NATO out of it, on the surface. The Turks are barely Muslims, they are definitely not Arabs.

The Hezbollah chief was killed in Syria by the rebels, He was there leading some evil unit for Assad, though the Hezbollah deny it, and had a funeral, and supposedly a body, in Lebanon.

I was only half not kidding, when I predicted we could see Hezbollah fight Hamas next.  Hamas is backing the rebels in Syria.

They would need to go roundabout through the West Bank to get at each other; or commute directly through Israel on the new “Go Ahead and Kill Each Other Visa” …  in a rare acquiescence to Arab demands !!

(No stopping along the new freeway allowed!)

Feel free to forward, publish, distribute by carrier pigeon… Remember, you heard it here first !!

Understanding Middle East Security

Most folks who watch the news don’t have a clear understanding of military tactics, nor of the geography of the West Bank.  They know Israel is a small country, overshadowed by the Golan Heights, but they don’t understand how particular hills and valleys in the West Bank convey safety or the lack thereof, nor what that implies for negotiations over borders.  This video, despite the histrionic tone of its overbearing announcer, is actually educational.

Your YouTube Away From YouTube: The Three Terrors

I hate to waste bandwidth duplicating other sites’ contents, but YouTube’s nasty habit of deleting pro-Israel videos leads me to post this video here to preserve it. The Three Terrors (a parody of The Three Tenors) isn’t as well done as the “We Con the World” video that YouTube recently took down (still preserved here at Jewish Jihad — see two posts ago). Nevertheless, The Three Terrors doesn’t deserve to be deleted by the “Censors of Zion.”  So here it is and here it will remain: Read the rest of this entry »
