What's going on in the Caliphate, and the affected neighbourhood?
I am referring to the self-proclaimed Caliphate in the war zones of Iraq and Syria, under a variety of names and English translations, like ISIL, ISIS, IS and Da'esh, with a territory from actual to megalomaniac; their ambitions and actions, their people and ideology, and how the people and countries are affected by them, and react to them.

It is too early to point the finger of blame, but this was the last tweet before the attack, "Meilleurs vœux, au fait."

'Operation Charlie Hebdo': Anonymous Threatens to Kill Terrorists, Hack Websites in Response to Paris Attack [VIDEO]

Quote from: IBTimes
Hacktivist group Anonymous has released a video condemning the Charlie Hebdo attack and has promised to avenge the death of 12 people in Paris who were killed by gunmen thought to have been affiliated to extremist groups.

The video which says, "Message for al-Qaeda, the Islamic State and other terrorists", was uploaded on YouTube from the group's Belgian account.

The clip features a man wearing the group's signature Guy Fawkes mask seated in front of a desk and the hashtag #OpCharlieHebdo is seen running throughout the video. The expression stands for 'Operation Charlie Hebdo', in which the hacktivists are planning to avenge the 'terrorist' attack.

Here is the actual foreign language YouTube Video.

Hacker group Anonymous have released a video condemning the Paris attacks, saying "freedom of expression has suffered an inhuman assault"
Hacker group Anonymous have released a video and a statement via Twitter condemning the attacks on Charlie Hebdo, in which 12 people, including eight journalists, were murdered.
The video description says that it is "a message for al-Qaeda, the Islamic State and other terrorists", and was uploaded to the group's Belgian account.
In the clip, a figure wearing the group's symbolic Guy Fawkes mask is seated in front of a desk with the hashtag #OpCharlieHebdo - which stands for Operation Charlie Hebdo - featured on screen.
The figure, whose voice is obscured says: "We are declaring war against you, the terrorists."
They add that the group will track down and close all accounts on social networks related to terrorists in order to avenge those who have been killed.

10 gets you 1 that the 10-year-old girl wasn't exactly a volunteer, if you get my meaning. These terrorists don't exactly play nice, and they're not above kidnapping children and using them as human bombs.
What would happen if a large asteroid slammed into the Earth?
According to several tests involving a watermelon and a large hammer, it would be really bad!

The Vietcong did similar things.

They would take a child, threaten her & her family with mutilation & a horrible death unless the child would toss a grenade, or plant a bomb for them.

If we spotted them, & believe me it was very obvious what they were up to, we had two (2) choices.

Watch them do the deed, or put them down -- shoot them & save the innocents, or better yet, our own brothers.

I along with 99% of all my brothers saw only one (1) option.

The other 1%, well most usually died trying to save the child, usually by detonation of whatever the child was carrying.

A handful succeeded, but that was rare as hens teeth.

The first time, as I starkly remember, it was very hard -- an agonizing decision, but as time went on it became a common task .... a duty to be performed to save lives.

Nevertheless I still see them, as if it were just yesterday.

I can only guess that these Islamist Terrorists have improved on the process a bit.

No mjsmsprt40 the safest place is to be as far away from the Pentagon controllers who create wars, disable countries and get a pat on the back from the corporates who smile going to the bank. You need to get out the place more. And remember the terrorist supporter on this Forum is from your country!

I can sense your pride in us having learned it all from the original and best at it (United Kingdom of Great Britain and N. Ireland, and all of her former Empire, pre-1945).   :angel:

What do you think?


That the propaganda victory of the week goes to the "Cybercaliphate".

The immediate reaction, "wow, you managed to hack a Twitter account :rolleyes:", won't detract from that.



Centcom Twitter hack and the rewards of digital vandalism
Quote from: Christian Science Monitor
While hitting sites and social accounts for small media outfits might not give the Islamic militants or their supporters much credibility, defacing Centcom is a different story. After all, this is the military command post from which the US oversees operations in the Middle East, where American forces have been battling IS militants.

"At the same time it has suffered a series of setbacks on the physical battlefields of Iraq, the ISIS flag got waved in a medium that more people in the West both notice and care about - the social media environment," Peter Singer, a strategist for the New America Foundation, wrote in Wired. "It further stakes ISIS's claim to prominence among the next generation of jihadis."

Poor try Colonel. You lot were so independent minded although founded by money people and the local Freeemasons (groan). That your country is in a mess, overdone by all your security agencies, skipping that constitution when suited is all your own work. No-one else would want to take the credit for a country going bananas and political nut jobs. And as you were determined to take over from the BE you have done a worse job globally.  :knight:

If you are depending on him Colonel you are hard stuck and in need of a head shrinker (plenty in ASmerica as there is a glut of head-bangers everywhere). Call me whatever waffle comes into the mind as that is easier for you lot than being able to answer. Keep ot up and prove my points. You big-heads have been involved in destrcution of countries since WW2 and made a mess of most in the end. Supported dictatorships all over the place as long as rightist, portrayed the lad of the free as a light for the world. Mind you ar=t the same time with 40 million in poverty, increasingly a police state and spy mad case says something else. You would think the word 'hypocrisy' had been created by an ex-colonist.  Having been founded by the sons of the rich in Boston in-between their secret dealings in the Freemasons one is not surprised at all the secrecy agencies spying on all your citizens and the world.

The main differeenc fro the old days is you do not have to roll up a trouser leg but be brained into believeing all the spy agencies are part of the mind training. The other night I watched an interview with the former head of theNSA an organisdation which is massive and spends billions. He was rather saddened that it had become quite a separate thing and not telling the White House what it was up to. An ex-FBI agnent in addition claimed the FBI was being compromised but you have a longer list of spy wasters than anywhere else so only belies the infantile minds. Trouble is you poor brained cannot see it having been brought up with your patriotism corrupted by a seething nationalist mind organising lot. Very rarely do I ever see an explanation of the things that contradict that bit of paper called a Constitution or a proper answer for an item. Instead we get waffle and attempts at deviating from an actual answer. With billions on all the spy clubs and millions starving and homeless that says much more than names swung at me!   :hat:

ps. America is slowly morphing into a caliphate of it's own.

Oh yeah... US sucks so hard and invented spying and is a police state. I do think you have lumped the states into one identity.  The states are all very different laws and different issues. It is a united of states. States in most case indicate a nation, and yet we dont provicate the term provinces or territories when discussing our local states. The south does not fall to the ills of other areas and the likewise other areas dont fall to our issues. You talk of wild violence of people walking around with guns and claiming the US is a police state.... seems contradictory to me. Keeping dictators in power for easy control is no worse than placing governors in foriegn lands giving direct orders.

Kinf of laughable that comment aout a police nanny Statewhen you think of the gung-ho form of police in the ex-colonies. They don't just try to arrest unarmed people they solve the legal problem by shooting them (not to wound) but kill and using just one bullet is not enough. Now the US police have access to a system that can see through walls based on radar so not satisified with spying on everyone now they have extnded things!  Thank heavens our police do not carry guns except for airports. Give an Amer5ican cop a gun and he is above the law and shoot whom he likes and get away with it. Sounds to me that the way things are going there the Police State gradualist direction is quickening.

Anyway thinking back to the thread and Caliphate stuff now the USA is going to help train and pay helping the Syrian Free Army as a "moderate group." If i was a US taxpayer I would groan at that as some sections of the SFA have had contact with some other groups that are something else. Just think of the times that "rebel" groups have been funded then later the same guns used to shoot and kill US soloders. It is a damnable crying shame that so many young American soldiers are losing their lives especially when arms supplied never always go where intended.

I'm betting that Mr. Howie very nearly choked on his Diet Irn Bru when he'd heard that Queen Lizzy ordered that this be played (as that top comment notes, the only time another nat'l anthem as ever been played outside of B'Ham Palace) following 9-11.
