#1  Why are there any wounded Taliban or ISIS? There should only be deaders.
Posted by: gorb || 06/10/2019 2:22 Comments || Top||

#2  There are hard rules of engagement made by politicians and careerist JAGs. And army regulations (all based on similar training) do not allow creative bending of these rules.

The resourceful and clever soldier can often bend and skate on rules, offing mewling 16 year olds lying in the dust. But men who value their career, and image in the eyes of other men ? They just can't. Also, there are a lot of whiners and rats in every unit who can complain.

In terms of practicality, a blown-up leg, shredded arm or a cracked rib-cage to an enemy is thought a better thing. It won't ever fight again. Some fucker will have to take care of it, it shall make life miserable for its own side. But applied to jihadis this theory falls flat. They want to die. You should not risk leaving any one alive. He alone may kill ten innocents. These days the liberal, life-worshiping nations of the west often allow local allies to do the wetwork for them. They'd rather kill by long-range methods, or proxy. It's true.

Unfortunately, the armies of the world have yet to realize that this not a war that will be won if run like an industry. It is not against simple ideology or annexation by conquest or over resources. They haven't fully understood the muslim animal even. Their ancestors had a better idea of the saracen.

Europe
Far-right rally against Muslim community in Germany's Chemnitz
[AlAhram] Tensions rose again Sunday in the eastern German city of Chemnitz, which last year saw days of xenophobic mob violence, after a local far-right group protested against a Moslem community festival.

Dozens of far-right protesters staged a rally, a day after an altercation in which an 18-year-old Syrian man allegedly injured the hand of a 41-year-old German man with a knife.

Police said they were investigating on charges of dangerous assault.

The altercation came after a Moslem community street festival was held Saturday in the city centre, and the local far-right group Pro Chemnitz protested nearby with a BBQ event.

An online video shows the holy warrior group grilling spit-roast pork while attendants yell "this is our city".

Pro Chemnitz later claimed the injured man was one of its "comrades in arms" and posted "breaking news" about the incident on social media along with a generic picture of a bloodied knife.

A local right-wing group then called for the demonstration Sunday, which was joined by some 50 people, according to local daily Freie Presse.

About 60 demonstrators staged a counter-protest and 66 police kept watch, local authorities said, adding that no violence was reported.

Chemnitz earned worldwide notoriety last year after a German man's fatal stabbing sparked mass protests which saw neo-Nazis rampaging through the streets targeting people of foreign appearance.

Defence lawyers for the Syrian man, Alaa Sheikhi, insist he is innocent in the manslaughter trial that is being held in another city of the ex-communist east, Dresden, for security reasons.

India-Pakistan
IEDs used in Ziarat bomb blasts, confirms CTD
[DAWN] QUETTA: Preliminary investigation into the two kabooms that hit as many vehicles in Ziarat on Friday suggested that improvised bombs (IED) were used to carry out the terror attacks which claimed five lives and left 13 people injured.

No group has so far grabbed credit for the attacks.

Both the IEDs were attached to the vehicles with magnet, said the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) on Saturday.

The CTD has registered two First Information Reports (FIR) of the kabooms on the report of Levies Force, Ziarat. Copies of the FIRs are available with Dawn.

Senior CTD officer Khalil Ahmed while confirming the registration of FIRs said that according to the bomb disposal squad nearly two to three kilograms of explosives were used for the kabooms.

The CTD, which is investigating the Ziarat blasts, said that evidence had been collected from the sites of the blasts. "We are investigating both the incidents," CTD official Ahmed said, adding that in the light of evidence a probe had been launched. But, so far, no arrests had been made.

The first blast took place when a vehicle carrying members of the Bohra community was on its way to the Kharwari Baba shrine, located on the outskirts of Ziarat town, killing three members of a family. The second blast occurred in the evening when a group of Shia Hazara
...a grouping of Dari-speaking people of Sino-Tibetan descent inhabiting Afghanistan and Pakistain. They are predominantly Shia Moslems and not particularly warlike, which makes them favored targets...
was returning to Quetta after spending the day in Ziarat. The kaboom occurred when the van they were travelling in reached near the Kawas area, resulting in the death of two persons on the spot.

On Saturday, bodies of three victims belonging to one family which included parents and their son were handed over to their relatives for transporting them back to Bloody Karachi
...formerly the capital of Pakistain, now merely its most important port and financial center. It is among the largest cities in the world, with a population of 18 million, most of whom hate each other and many of whom are armed and dangerous...
. The bodies of the two victims from the Hazara community were handed over to their family in Quetta. The victims were buried in the Hazara graveyard on Saturday.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
ISIS regaining momentum near Palmyra as fighting rages in northwestern Syria
[ALMASDARNEWS] The Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(ISIS/ISIS/IS/ISIS) is regaining its strength near the ancient city of Palmyra, while the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and jihadist rebels trade offensive in northwestern Syria.
Wonder who's paying all those salaries and for all those weapons and all that ammunition?
Speaking to al-Masdar from Damascus city, a military source stated that the Islamic State has recently stepped up their operations in central Syria, targeting the Syrian Army more frequently around the key road between the cities of al-Sukhneh and Palmyra.

According to the source, the Islamic State’s ambushes and raids in central Syria are well-coordinated and proof that the terrorist group possesses the ability to wreak havoc inside the country.

In May, the Syrian Army suffered more than 100 casualties at the hands of the Islamic State in central Syrian. However,
a poor excuse is better than no excuse at all...
it appears that the June casualties may exceed those of May, as the Syrian Army has already lost several soldiers as a result of the terrorist group’s attacks.

With the ongoing battle in northwestern Syria occupying many of the Syrian Arab Army units, there are grave concerns that the Islamic State may take advantage of the situation and launch a wide-scale assault against the government forces.

The Islamic State is estimated to have between 2,000-3,000 fighters in the Badiya al-Sham region of central and eastern Syria; this leaves the terrorist group with more than enough fighters to take over a large part of this desert region.

Should this happen, the Syrian Arab Army may be forced to halt their operations in northwestern Syria in order to stop an Islamic State advance.

#2  When ISIS gets through sacking Palmyra why don't they go after Istanbul (formerly Constantinople)?

Now that would be interesting.

Jihadist rebels behead Syrian soldier in northwestern Hama
[ALMASDARNEWS] The jihadist rebels recently beheaded a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldier that was maimed in an undisclosed area in northwestern Hama.

In the video, the jihadist rebels film themselves beheading the soldier, who was still believed to have been alive prior to the gruesome execution.

The jihadist rebels have released similar footage in the past, with most of their videos taking place in the Idlib Governorate.
