Enough of trying to assist islamists! “Denigrating” as Imam Obama indicated, is the nicer of terms that should be used. Does anyone see similarities between these maggots and the American maggot tactics ?
Protesters angered by a film they consider blasphemous to Islam have stormed the U.S. Embassy compound in Yemen‘s capital, Sanaa, in the most recent attack on U.S. diplomatic posts in the Middle East.
Protesters smashed windows as they breached the embassy perimeter and reached the compound grounds, although they did not enter the main building housing the offices. Angry young men brought down the U.S. flag in the courtyard, burned it and replaced it with a black banner bearing Islam’s declaration of faith — “There is no God but Allah.”
All you need Leon, is a mustache. Great Groucho Marx mask you’d have. How many more ILLEGAL WARS, is your administration going to get the U.S. involved in?
According to U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, “It’s important when Assad leaves… to try to preserve stability in that country.” Panetta claims keeping the Syrian military in place will prevent Syria from becoming another Iraq.
Yes, the mullahs say. We put all navy ships in Strait and wait for West to destroy. Blocked! Simple..
Iran Says it Has a Plan to Block Strait of Hormuz if Threatened
Umm, does anyone see the likelihood of an “October Surprise”, for reelection purposes? I do. That “Surprise” just may happen earlier, you know the line, ‘I Did This’..
Back in mid-February, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper warned that al-Qaeda had “infiltrated” the Syrian opposition. At roughly the same time, videos began emerging on the internet that clearly revealed just what an understatement–to put it mildly–Clapper’s observation represented. The videos show Syrian rebel brigades proudly posing with the al-Qaeda flag and protestors holding it high. This was not a matter of “infiltration,” with the word’s connotations of stealth and cunning, but rather of an openly publicized affiliation.
An ally of Iran’s Supreme Leader has written in the state press: “Since the very foundation of Islam is facing a potential danger, it is necessary for all the Muslims in general and the Islamic governments in particular to act to remove this corrupting material by any means possible. All our troubles are due to Israel!”by AWR HAWKINS/ http://www.breitbart.com/big-peace
City lights of Dubai, United Arab Emirates, are featured in this image taken by the Expedition 30 crew aboard the International Space Station. The City of Dubai–the largest metropolitan area within the emirate of Dubai–is a favorite subject of astronaut photography largely due to the unique artificial archipelagos situated directly offshore in the Persian Gulf, which were built such that their full design is only visible from the vantage point of an airplane — or an orbiting spacecraft. The city presents an eye-catching appearance at night that vividly displays the urban development pattern. In this detailed image, taken with a long focal length lens and digital camera optimized for fast response and high light sensitivity, several interesting patterns can be observed. The highways and major streets are sharply defined by yellow-orange lighting, while the commercial and residential areas are resolved into a speckle pattern of individual white, blue and yellow-orange lights. Several large and brilliantly lit areas are large hotel and mall complexes, including the Burj Khalifa Tower, the world’s tallest building at 2,717 feet, or 828 meters. The brilliant lighting of the city contrasts sharply with both the dark Persian Gulf to the northwest, and largely undeveloped and unlit areas to the southeast. Likewise, the clusters of lighting in the Palm Jumeira complex at bottom right correspond to the relatively small part of the archipelago that has been developed. Isolated areas of blurred city lights are due to patchy clouds.
