Re: The Levant crisis.(Israel,SYRIA,Lebanon,etc) - II

Turkish Newspapers continue to indulge in bare faced lies --- as usual, they claim that Turkey is taking on ISIS, but the more devious lie they are spreading is that ISIS is using Russian weapons and this supported by Russia. Rocket From syria hits another turkish school OT, but just saying, If folk...

good point, gaganji. Having these lasers wired to video cameras that transmit images instantly about what tripped the alarm can reduce wasted effort when animals and non-threats trigger these laser sensors.

Re: Islamism & Islamophobia Abroad - News & Analysis (9-8-20

450 of 452 suicide attacks in 2015 were by followers of Islam That is pretty damning, not that it is any surprise. Islam's tenets are just bad ideas and not in the interest of humanity -- the sooner everyone realizes this, the better. But the allies of Islam are the so-called "liberal" im...

Re: Out-of-India - From Theory to Truth: Part 2

Seems to me that more books on the topic are a good thing, and is not a matter of competition, since all the "scholarship" of the mofos in the west need to be replaced by an equally voluminous scholarship for anti-AIT ideas. Seems like it is all good.

The binoculars used by the six Pathankot militants were made in USA and have US Army markings.

If oil is a central factor in the Levant Crisis, then why are oil prices so low and oil supply at peak levels? Surely these countries did not have to fight a war in Northern Africa to do this -- the Saudis seemed to do that all on their own, and do not seem to be keen to back down on their decision ...
