Friday's Chant: #كلنا_جبهة_النصرة

(aka We are all Jabhat al-Nusra) on twitter.

Hell of a lot of al-Qaeda lovers on there. One complained that Hezbollah wasn't listed as a terrorist organization by the US and al-Nusra was. I gave a link showing the State Dept listed them in 1997. He/she answered: "But still Hezbollah is acting without embargo". Say what? Syria is allowing Hezbollah in and?

Poor al-Nursra can't get no respect!!

h/t @azelin.

1 I'd say the guy has a point, lots of hezbollah assets are not frozen that we could freeze, for instance al-Manar and some other websites.

3 Hezbollah is going to have some serious weaponry from the civil war in Syria. A great recruitment tool. I wonder if Russia's sudden desire to give it's friend Syria a missile system had anything to do with Israel's bombing of Hezbollah supply convoys.
This is another one we should have stayed out of. It's a no win situation. There is absolutely nothing for America to gain.

4 Damn those poor people in Oklahoma City are catching hell again. Imagine what the people in Moore who just came home and started repairing their homes only to get hit again feel like.

5 So, let's see:
Iran supported Hamas. Hamas now supports AQ. Iran supports Hezbollah. Hamas hates Iran now...where is all of this going? McCain takes photos with known terrorists? WTF?

And, OK is a red state that will need assistance again although being one of many religious states that think that weather disasters only affect gay blue states. Maybe G-D thinks they're retarded and need some thinning.

6 If Allah didn't wish it to happen he would have stopped the storms. Since God wills it. Who the hell are we to interfere with God's plans.
Ain't religion beautiful?
Hallelujah and get ready for the floods. Perhaps if I handle a poison snake while I dance and speak in tongues God will stop all the carnage. After all. He caused it.

7 'God willed it' can only be spoken by those alive at the end.

8 Hezbollah isn't being allowed in by Syria. Hezbollah is fighting side by side with the Syrian government against the rebels. Here's what I see. The war is Sunni Muslims backed by Saudi Arabia and Qatar (the rebels) against Shia Muslims backed by Iran and Hezbollah. As always the United States, France and the UK sides with the Saudis and the Russians and Chinese side with Iran.
All else is pretty much bullshit.
The rebels, win or lose will come out with trained fighters and modern weapons from the west.
Hezbollah win or lose, will come out with trained fighters armed with the best Russia has.
This is why I say we need to keep our noses out of it. It's a no win situation. We lose no matter what. Even if our so called allies the Saudis win we lose as Sunnis hate us as much as Shias.
Remember the reason we are hated by both. Our stand on Israel. (I know, blah, blah, blah, but it's the truth) all other reasons are real but doesn't generate the hate our stand on Israel does. If the rebels win things may stay the same with terrorism directed toward the Syrian Government. If the rebels lose Hezbollah will be much, much more a threat than ever.
If I'm wrong please let me know.
That is without the Mark and Moshe clowns normal ass fxxxing, your wife is xxxx, etc: mindless crap.

11 Hate to be a doom expectant but isn't it time for ARAB SPRING in TURKEY? Now that the Muslim Brotherhood has control of Egypt they can look to the big prize. Turkey. How about Jordan? United States educated King. Look at the map and see why Jordan is so important. The western world has done nothing to control this Arab Spring movement. Therefore get ready for Arab Summer.
And what could we do anyway.
I have always and continue to believe that Coca Cola, blue jeans, Hamburgers, fries, beer, pizza and music are better weapons against Islamic fanatics than F-16s.
