An Interesting Angle

Airman Jones was assigned to the induction center, where he advised new recruits about their government benefits, especially their GI insurance.

It wasn’t long before Captain Smith noticed that Airman Jones was having a staggeringly high success-rate, selling insurance to nearly 100% of the recruits he advised.

Rather than ask about this, the Captain stood in the back of the room and listened to Jones’ sales pitch.

Jones explained the basics of the GI Insurance to the new recruits, and then said: “If you have GI Insurance and go into battle and are killed, the government has to pay $200,000 to your beneficiaries. If you don’t have GI insurance, and you go into battle and get killed, the government only has to pay a maximum of $6000. Now,” he concluded, “which group do you think they are going to send into battle first?”

Is Spain Fueling the BDS War Against Israel?

Spain’s center-right government under Mariano Rajoy continues to pursue policies that are antagonistic towards Israel — policies that are virtually unchanged from the government of former Socialist Prime Minister of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero — policies that largely coincide with the objectives of the BDS movement.

Although Spain’s Foreign Minister has repeatedly said that the government does not support a boycott against Israel, under his watch the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), the Foreign Ministry’s primary aid-giving agency, has continued to subsidize organizations that work to delegitimize Israel.

Pentagon Not Targeting Islamic State Training Camps

The Pentagon has not conducted airstrikes against an estimated 60 Islamic State (IS) training camps that are supplying thousands of fighters each month to the terror group, according to defense and intelligence officials.

War strategy based on myths and lies is a recipe for crushing failure. Obama’s war strategy is to convince Americans that the Islamic State is not Islamic. That the quranic texts and teachings that jihadists invoke are not quranic.

My concern and those of my colleagues is what happens when American Muslims and other foreign fighters eventually return to their home countries in Europe and North America to carry out jihad terror attacks.

“If we know the location of these camps, and the president wants to destroy ISIS, why are the camps still functioning?”

Obama to US Jews: Iran deal lifts existential threat to Israel

US President Barack Obama insisted Friday that the recently negotiated agreement on Iran’s nuclear program “deals with the existential threat to Israel,” citing the concerns of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, one of the most vehement opponents of the deal. Furthermore, he said, the agreement “blocks every way, every pathway that Iran might take in order to obtain a nuclear weapon.”

He said once the nuclear accord was implemented, he expected “pretty quick” improvements in US-Israeli relations.

SUNDAY SPLASH: Becky Wade relaunched as ‘Psycho Escapologist hackette’ as Theresa May hits EU with umbrella and Tamara’s tits come out for the boys

The Slog

All human life is there, but not Rebekah Brooks. What can that mean?

Look through all the British Sunday Newspapers this morning, and you will find a lot that is unintentionally funny – plus even more that’s disturbing. But not a whimper of outcry is raised about the impending appointment of justice perverting not-guilty sociopath media supremo Becky Wade, the spin-artist formerly known as Rebekah Brooks, to the CEO position at Newscorp. Peter Jukes and other associated journalists with a spine now face an uphill struggle to unearth the even smellier poo at the centre of King Turdoch’s Empire of Smear. But it’s a task that must and will be undertaken. Dial Murdoch for Murder: it has a certain ring to it. Mickey Spillane is long-dead, but the wise-guy colloquial prose would fit such a novel perfectly.

And of course, we must remember that such a book would only…
