Salafis Throwing Bombs: How American and British Planners Partnered With Al-Qaeda Affiliated Groups At the Start of the Syrian Civil War

2011 syria protests.svg

Introduction In the mainstream view, al-Qaeda did not play a role in the Syria conflict until Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi dispatched his deputy, Abu Muhammad al-Jolani, to Syria in August 2011 to establish a wing of the group there, called Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front. Additionally, al-Qaeda allegedly did not carry out any military operations until December 2011 and did not announce its establishment until January 2012. However, there is evidence that al-Qaeda affiliated militants were involved in the Syrian conflict much earlier. Saudi intelligence...

Is Virtue Signaling Vicious?

yardsign kindnessiseverything y9fu w7

Virtue signaling—the practice of highlighting what one takes to be one’s own moral superiority, often by loudly denouncing the character and comportment, including the speech, of other people—has become a dominant mode of rhetoric throughout social media and network television. Virtue theory, in contrast, is a teleological approach to normative morality concerned with how actions affect one’s soul or character. Historians of philosophy usually trace virtue theory to Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, the first extant articulation of ideas such as that habits build character, and virtues...

Idaho Man Mistakenly Shot By Cops In His Backyard

2021 02 11 07 24

"An Idaho police officer fatally shot a man in his own backyard Monday while searching a neighborhood for a suspect believed to be armed, officials said." This is how the cops describe the shooting: "We do not currently have the answers as to what exactly occurred during these moments," Idaho Falls police Chief Bryce Johnson said. "We do know that during this interaction, an Idaho Falls police officer discharged his service weapon firing one shot which struck the man." Of course they have to investigate to make sure all proper protocols were followed: "The Idaho Falls Police Department...

Cop Kills Boy

Teenagers messing around, broke into a vacant home, neighbor, an off-duty prison guard, call cops, cops come, kids jump fence, cop neighbor waiting in ambush shoots one of the kids in the back, killing him dead. And guess what? No charges. Because "the law" is just silly, pretend bullshit. In fact government is itself a conspiracy to keep its employees from facing accountability at all costs. "Law" is for mundanes like you to be subjected to. It's for them to administer and so of course they grant themselves defacto and dejure immunity even when they murder children. Degenerate scumbag...

The State Is All About Double Standards

There are some subjects that must be discussed multiple times until people fully grasp them. The subject of the “double standard” when it comes to State actors and their actions is one that I think about every day. On the right of the meme is a list of actions that you or I would be thrown in a cage for were we to perform them. Yet when the “State actor” does it, it is normalized. Let’s look at what the State calls “Enhanced Interrogation.” If they feel the need to get information out of a suspect, they have been given the right (mind you, by people that do not possess that right to start...

But do you people really have to turn America into North Korea in the process?

Jordan’s Abdullah: Israel Imposing ‘Unthinkable Solution’ On Palestinians

Jordan’s King Abdullah II accuses Israel of trying to “impose an unthinkable solution” on Palestinians as hopes fade for a two-state solution backed by the international community. Speaking to lawmakers at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, he says Israel’s construction of settlements in the West Bank and “disregard of international law” could be summed up as “one state turning its back on its neighborhood, perpetuating divisions among peoples and faiths worldwide.” The Jordanian monarch carries the hereditary title of “custodian” of holy Muslim and Christian sites in...
