Gen. Allen: Destroy the Islamic State Now
The brutal murder of the brave American journalist James Foley is meant to directly terrorize the world’s media, the international community, and the United States. If all the actions of the Islamic State, or IS, to date weren’t sufficiently reprehensible, this act and the potential for other similar acts will snap American attention with laser-like focus onto the real danger IS poses to the existence of Iraq, the order of the region and to the homelands of Europe and America.
‘No Boots on the Ground’ Is a Mantra, Not a Strategy

No political or military leader responsible for the lives of citizens who become soldiers ever wants to give the order to put American service members at risk. That desire is even more present after more than a decade of waging and fighting war. The decision to employ American forces should be based upon U.S. interests and an objective assessment of what kinds of forces are needed to achieve the outcome the nation’s interests require, not merely what its leaders desire. The U.S. sustains its military forces to defend itself and its interests. These forces exist to provide options for political leaders. The current “no boots on the ground” mantra is a policy, not a strategy; moreover, it is problematic from five important perspectives: strategically, operationally, institutionally, historically and morally.
Obama Oversees Brazen Paris Convoy Attack Against Saudi Prince
As we had, likewise, reported on after the issuance of last weeks SVR report, of the estimated 111,000 Saudi Arabian students currently in the United States, 8,000 have been identified as being Islamic State (IS) [also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)] terror members, of which nearly 3,000 of them have become “Ebola Martyrs” willing to die in their “mission” of infecting as many Americans as they can before their stated deadline of October.
Phi Beta Iota: We have no direct knowledge. By all accounts available the US intelligence community appears to have helped the US special operations community achieve an extraordinary intervention in the past 24 hours. The FBI has absolutely no clue who’s who among all the foreigners inserted into the USA, and least of all among the Saudis and the combination of Israelis and multinational “sayonim” (Jews who blindly support the Zionist state). Note that the posited 8,000 above could easily provide a 1,000 individuals to be voluntarily infected with Ebola or anything else AFTER their arrival in the USA, with the viruses imported via the Saudi diplomatic pouch. However, having lost all faith in the integrity of the US Government in relation to the public interest, we do not discount the possibility that this is a false flag operation intended to justify a fake Ebola crisis to further test the ability of the federal government to restrict travel and shut-down any areas of the country they wish. We pray the Obama Administration understands just how close the USA is to massive armed push-back against the militarization (and potential federalization) of the state and local police. We suspect Obama has no one he can actually trust to tell him the truth.

The most wanted man in the world

“It’s like the boiling frog,” Snowden tells me. “You get exposed to a little bit of evil, a little bit of rule-breaking, a little bit of dishonesty, a little bit of deceptiveness, a little bit of disservice to the public interest, and you can brush it off, you can come to justify it. But if you do that, it creates a slippery slope that just increases over time, and by the time you’ve been in 15 years, 20 years, 25 years, you’ve seen it all and it doesn’t shock you. And so you see it as normal. And that’s the problem, that’s what the Clapper event was all about. He saw deceiving the American people as what he does, as his job, as something completely ordinary. And he was right that he wouldn’t be punished for it, because he was revealed as having lied under oath and he didn’t even get a slap on the wrist for it. It says a lot about the system and a lot about our leaders.”
