End Game -a must read
From :View from the right
Even if Muslims do not engage in explicit behaviors or speech to advance sharia and jihad, their silent belief in sharia or jihad means that they are on the side of those seeking sharia, whether through violent or non-violent means. As long as Muslims believe in Islamic law and believe that all Muslims—or all Muslims and all non-Muslims—should live under Islamic law, either they must support the spread and imposition of sharia, or, at best, they have no grounds on which to oppose the imposition of sharia.
Many Muslims who believe in Islam as a religion but not as a political movement to impose sharia on non-Muslims nevertheless believe in the imposition of sharia on Muslims. Therefore, whenever Muslims dwell in a non-Islamic society, they will inevitably seek to bring themselves under sharia to the extent possible, demanding that the host society formally recognize at least some aspects of sharia. As the numbers and power of Muslims increases, the range of sharia regulations demanded by the Muslims, and the range of the society that must come under those regulations, will keep increasing.
Even the Muslims who believe in Islam solely as a private religion and do not believe in sharia either for Muslims or for non-Muslims are, though notably less dangerous than other Muslims, nevertheless members of the global Muslim community or umma and thus, as Muslims, will tend to feel solidarity with their fellow Muslims who believe in jihad and sharia, especially when the latter come into conflict with non-Muslims.
By supporting the right of Muslims peacefully to spread sharia, such non-jihadist Muslims are in effect on the side of the spread of sharia.
That the doctrines of sharia and jihad being totally incompatible with the Constitution and laws of the United States and of the several states, and with our most fundamental customs, institutions, and liberties, the advocacy and promotion of these doctrines is deemed not to be protected speech or a protected exercise of religion under the First Amendment of the Constitution;

Too close to Medina
3 French tourists killed in Saudi Arabia attack.
Three Frenchmen were killed Monday and at least one other was injured when they came under fire while traveling in the Saudi Arabian desert north of Medina, a spokesman for the kingdom’s Interior Ministry said.
Maj. -Gen. Mansour al-Turki said the group of French travelers was resting on the side of a road when gunmen fired at their car, instantly killing two of the men. The third man died later after he was taken to a hospital, and the four Frenchman was in serious condition at an area hospital, al-Turki said.
Women and children also were with the group, who were on a road 17 kilometers (10.6 miles) north of Medina, but they were uninjured. Saudi authorities were investigating the attack, al-Turki said.

Terror Training over the net.
22 February 2007: Islamic terrorists have been using the Internet for publicity, propaganda, fundraising, recruitment, planning, coordination of attacks and training purposes for well over a decade. Historical analysis of the websites used by terrorists and their supporters often suggests that information we see on such sites today offers a glimpse of what we might expect in the future. We note with interest the recent postings of (and links to) WWII Nazi sniper films.

A senior Israeli defence official said negotiations were now underway between the two countries for the US-led coalition in Iraq to provide an "air corridor" in the event of the Israeli government deciding on unilateral military action to prevent Teheran developing nuclear weapons.

The "higher ups" aren't supplying the men on the front lines with either the tools or the authority to do their jobs properly. Until the voters demand change the criminals/terrorists will just get bolder and more aggressive.

Secret report: Terror threat worst since 9/11
By Sean Rayment, Security Correspondent, Sunday Telegraph
Last Updated: 12:30am GMT 25/02/2007
The terrorist threat facing Britain from home-grown al-Qaeda agents is higher than at any time since the September 11 attacks in 2001, secret intelligence documents reveal.
The number of British-based Islamic terrorists plotting suicide attacks against “soft” targets in this country is far greater than the Security Services had previously believed, the government paperwork discloses. It is thought the plotters could number more than 2,000.
Under the heading “International Terrorism in the UK”, the document - seen by The Sunday Telegraph - states: “The scale of al-Qaeda’s ambitions towards attacking the UK and the number of UK extremists prepared to participate in attacks are even greater than we had previously judged.”
It warns that terrorist “attack planning” against Britain will increase in 2007, and adds: “We still believe that AQ [al-Qaeda] will continue to seek opportunities for mass casualty attacks against soft targets and key infrastructure. These attacks are likely to involve the use of suicide operatives.”
The document, which has been circulated across Whitehall to MI5, Scotland Yard’s Counter Terrorist Command, the Home Office, the Cabinet Office and the Ministry of Defence, also reveals that al-Qaeda has grown into a world-wide organisation with a foothold in virtually every Muslim country in North Africa, the Middle East and central Asia.
Eliza Manningham-Buller, the director general of MI5, warned recently that there were more than 1,600 “identified individuals” actively engaged in plotting terrorist attacks. There were 200 known networks involved in at least 30 terrorist plots. It is thought that the number of British citizens involved in plots could be well in excess of 2,000.
MI5 believes that soft targets, such as the transport system and economic targets such as the City of London and Canary Wharf, are most at risk.
A senior political source said the picture painted by the document was “particularly bleak and unlikely to improve for several years”.

Israel - A Vital Friend
by Hana Levi Julian
(IsraelNN.com) A new Gallup poll shows that more than half of American citizens consider Israel to be a "vital friend" in the Middle East. The average U.S. citizen considers Israel to be one of America's most important allies, according to a survey released this week by the world-renown Gallup polling organization. The poll examined America's perception of foreign nations, which it considers to be allies and which it views with disfavor.
More than half of Americans rated Israel as a 'vital friend' – 55 percent of the respondents rated the Jewish State as "favorable" and "important", the only country to be named in both categories. More than half of the respondents to the survey – 63 percent – rated Israel favorably; slightly less than last year's 68 percent, but still much higher than five years ago, when 56 percent of respondents rated the Jewish State favorably.
Massive sink hole
GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala -
By JUAN CARLOS LLORCA, Associated Press Writer
A 330-foot-deep sinkhole killed at least two teenagers as it swallowed about a dozen homes early Friday and forced the evacuation of nearly 1,000 people in a crowded Guatemala City neighborhood. Officials blamed the sinkhole on recent rains and an underground sewage flow from a ruptured main.
The pit emitted foul odors, loud noises and tremors, shaking the surrounding ground. A rush of water could be heard from its depths, and authorities feared it could widen or others could open up. Rescue operations were on hold until a firefighter, suspended from a cable, could take video and photos above the hole and officials could use the documentation to decide how to proceed.

Chemical Warfare Today
BAGHDAD, Iraq - Insurgents exploded a truck carrying chlorine gas canisters Wednesday — the second such "dirty" chemical attack in two days — while a U.S. official said ground fire apparently forced the downing of a Black Hawk helicopter. All nine aboard the aircraft were rescued.
Some authorities believe militants could be trying to maximize the panic from their attacks by adding chlorine or other noxious substances.

Aussie Special Forces Increase
Wed Feb 21, 8:42 PM ET
Australia has about 1,400 military personnel in and around Iraq, including about 500 soldiers providing security in the country's south, and about 500 in Afghanistan working with Dutch
NATO forces in the Uruzgan province."We are very concerned about the activities of al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan," Nelson told Australian television on Thursday. "What I have decided to do is to send a small scoping group over to Afghanistan to have a very close look at it."
Nelson said while Australia had not yet made a formal decision to deploy extra troops to Afghanistan, he had discussed the issue with the Netherlands, British and U.S. governments and Australians should not be surprised if extra troops were sent.
At the time, Australia's Defense Force Commander Angus Houston left open the option of sending the special forces back to Afghanistan but said they first needed a rest.
Past & Present B17 & B52
"So you think that money is the root of all evil?" said Francisco d'Anconia. "Have you ever asked what is the root of money? Money is a tool of exchange, which can't exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?

Video Games are GOOOD NOOB!
Video Games Improve Vision 20 Percent
And Mom said I was just wasting my quarters! Not only are video games said to improve concentration, now they've been found to increase visual ability, too.
The details: Playing action games (first person shooter-style games, in particular) for a few hours a day for one month increased test subjects' ability to identify letters in a cluttered field by about 20 percent. As Science Daily puts it: "In essence, playing video game improves your bottom line on a standard eye chart."
Interestingly, the study from the University of Rochester showed that vision did not only increase in the primary field (where you tend to focus while playing a game), it also improved in the peripheral parts of vision, suggesting that the video games had improved visual processing overall instead of just training you to search for items better in a narrow range.
Mind you, the study only showed improvement for action games (Unreal Tournament was the tested title) and not less visually complex games: The control group played Tetris. In other words, playing Minesweeper and Solitaire at your desk all day instead of working is not going to give you better eyesight. Tell your boss you need an Xbox 360 and Gears of War, stat.
USS New York "Never Forget"
The U.S.S. New York
Recycled steel from the World Trade Center will be used to build part of a new U.S. warship, according to defense contractor Northrop Grumman.
The brand new assault craft with a capability of carrying around 800 marines and equipment is to be named the U.S.S. New York, in tribute to the almost 2,800 people who died in the attacks of September 11 2001.
The steel is set to be shipped to Northrop's shipyard in Pascagoula, Mississippi, for construction to begin in the middle of next year. The 684-foot ship should be ready for service in 2007. The ship will have the motto "Never Forget".
Chinese Hacking Conflict
Claims Network Warfare Command
By Nick Farrell:
The Naval Network Warfare Command says it is tracking and investigate hundreds of suspicious events each day from Chinese hackers, according to Federal Computer Week.
The hackers are stealing technology, gathering intelligence, researching defence operations and the creating sleeper software in defence department networks, the report claims.
One favourite trick was to use phishing, sending deceptive mass e-mail messages to lure DOD users into clicking on a malicious URL.
They will also use as Trojan horse viruses and worms as a distraction and then come in 'slow and low' to hide in a system while the monitors are distracted.
China seeks a position of power to ensure its freedom of action in international affairs and the ability to influence the global economy, the senior official said.
According to the FCW report, a recent Chinese military white paper states that China plans to be able to win the "informationised war" by the middle of this century.

M16: Pillars of Creation
Terror top 10
By Mike Baker
Justin from the great city of Cedar Rapids, Mich., writes “… People complain about gas that is $2.50 per gallon but then turn around and pay $6.50 for a grande latte mocha carmel frappe whipped with low fat soy cream coffee.” Frankly I only pay $3.76 for my coffee but I suspect we can all get on board Justin’s logic train.
1. Russia… Look at Putin’s attempts to take over Russia, from the oil companies to their Constitution.
2. Iran… is Putin’s agent.
3. Al Qaeda… a dangerous wildcard. Putin is now their friend.
4. North Korea… an unpredictable brat.
6. Iraq… possible breeding ground for Putin’s agents.
And so on, you get the idea. Bruce is very concerned about Putin.
Full marks to Greg for noting that the U.S. for many years now has paid little to no serious attention to Latin America. You reap what you sew. Or don’t sew as the case may be.
However, there is a sense in your responses that, while the majority believe we need to stick it out, the majority is also less than certain that we can make it work.
But not all were on board with this ranking. Greg, who opted not to identify his whereabouts, believes that Al Qaeda is “… way over-rated. They spend almost as much time in-fighting as they do fighting. They are largely ineffective.”
“… Sloth and greed.”
“… the United Nations.”
