A big badda-boom, 6 dead and over a 1000 people injured. Oh, if ONLY these guys had had jobs, right?
The 1993 World Trade Center bombers: Where are they now?
On Feb. 26, 1993, an ugly new phase of terrorism was ushered in when Jordanian Eyad Ismoil drove Kuwaiti Ramzi Yousef and a 1,300-pound nitrate-hydrogen gas enhanced bomb also stuffed with cyanide into the parking garage below the World Trade Center in Manhattan.
Yousef lit a 20-foot fuse, and the two fled quickly enough to evade immediate capture by authorities. The bomb killed six people and injured more than 1,000 that day.
When the bomb went off, their goal of bringing down the Twin Towers failed, but the event was the first in a continuing string of indiscriminate attacks on civilians by terrorists designed solely to kill as many as possible.
I’m kinda sick of these Muslim-terrorism tinged anniversaries anymore, you know? Why can’t WE have at least ONE where we kicked some serious ass and MEANT it?
..This is a new one to me
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Gothic hip-hop artist who did illegal cosmetic surgery on the side boasted at her murder trial Thursday that her body sculpting work was so popular she was dubbed “the Michelangelo of buttocks injections.”
Padge Victoria Windslowe, who performed under the name “Black Madam,” is accused of killing a 20-year-old dancer from London during a procedure at an airport hotel that involved industrial-grade silicone and Krazy Glue.
Now, I don’t know about you, but when I hear “…a procedure at an airport hotel that involved industrial-grade silicone and Krazy Glue” my first reaction is SIGN ME UP.
Via Tim, a shrine in memory of a death in Copenhagen.
Of course, since it’s Europe the shrine is for the shooter
On the street corner where Copenhagen’s Islamist gunman died in a shoot-out with police, his friends laid floral tributes in his memory on Monday.
Emulating the actions of the hundreds of people who left flowers outside a café and a synagogue two men were shot dead at the weekend, those who regard Omar el-Hussein as a “good guy”, not a terrorist, created a third shrine.
…”We’ve put flowers here because we must remember him,” said a young Arab man, who gave his name as Mohamed. “He was a good guy. We don’t believe he did anything wrong. It wasn’t like the police say.” A placard placed with the flowers read: “May Allah be merciful, rest in peace” in both Arabic and Danish.
…“He wasn’t someone who could kill people. He stabbed a guy, OK, but it was only in the leg,” Benny said. “When we fight, we stab, but always in the leg, not to kill. I’ve stabbed ten or eleven people. I know he didn’t have the money to buy an automatic gun. Here it costs 50,000 kroner (nearly £5,000).”
Just turn out the lights, it’s over.
…thanks to ISIS butchers and their knives.
But before you get all ‘upset’ and shit, Christians, you’d do well to remember our President’s words of wisdom:
GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE
I mean, really, what kind of a wimp needs a AUMF to fight the JV team?
President Obama’s request that Congress authorize military action against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was met with skepticism from both parties on Wednesday, raising questions about Capitol Hill’s ability to pass a war measure.
The divide is largely centered on language prohibiting the use of “enduring offensive ground combat operations” against ISIS.
Democrats say this does too little to limit the White House from committing ground troops to the fight, while Republicans say the restrictions could handcuff the military.
How those views can possibly be reconciled isn’t clear, even with Obama using his bully pulpit to call on Washington to unify against what he said was a “barbaric” terrorist network.
The Wunderkinds at State leap into the Random Fray with their usual high standards of expertise
It leaves one aghast, it really does.
A known radical Muslim terrorist goes into a Kosher store, and it was a store, not a deli, which is an important distinction as lots of non-jews will stop in for some corned beef and pickles but if you want to be sure to have a nearly 100% jewish clientele a kosher store is the spot. Anyhow, to claim with a straight face that this was some random attack, equal to say getting hit by an asteroid as one walks down the street and not a clear case of a radical muslim terrorist looking specifically to kill Jews, well, it simply beggars belief.
As they beggar our country.
Pardon me whilst I go get sick.
Why, just listen as the mostest eloquentest Genius Evuh explains it to us Morons
It is entirely legitimate for, uh, the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a buncha, uh… violent, vicious zealots, uh, who behead people or randomly shoot… uh… a buncha folks, uh, in a, in a deli in Paris. Uh…
The refusal to say what is plainly going on is either a sign of craven cowardice or an endorsement of it.
Well, or just plain obtuse intellectual stupidity.
Update: Via Ace, here are a few more random notes:
-“Help Wanted” ad in France says “If possible, no Jews please”
-“A Month After (random!) Kosher Market Attack, French Jews Plan Exodus”
Randomly, of course.
Updated Update: This is really just too random to pass up
It seems like something one would be hard pressed to disagree with: the word “coexist,” written on a wall using a Muslim crescent as the letter “C,” a Star of David as the letter “X,” and a Christian cross as a “T.”
But in Paris, this particular iteration of the popular inscription—here, created by the street artist Combo, who also pasted a life-size photo of himself next to it—didn’t go down well with everybody. Le Monde reports that four young people asked the artist to remove it last weekend, and beat him up severely when he refused to do so.
Ah those Presbyterian Yutes and their lack of culture!

…because, dear lion-hearted liberal friends, they DO KILL PEOPLE when the mocking begins.
Unlike Christians of the past few centuries, may I point out.
The shooting took place at the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
I’m sure this will be labelled “workplace violence”
Several people have been killed by armed gunmen in a shooting at the Paris offices of a satirical magazine, according to French media reports.
Shooting was heard at the headquarters of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical magazine known for publishing controversial cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in 2011.
Initial reports said between seven and 10 people had been killed.
The attackers reportedly escaped in a black Citreon DS, wounding a policemen, then knocking over and wounding “several” pedestrians.
“Several men in black cagoules were heard to shout ‘the Prophet has been avenged'”, wrote Pierre de Cossette, a broadcast journalist with Europe1 News.
Clearly, there seems to be no possible motive
The magazine cover this week is on “Submission,” a book by Michel Houellebecq released today, which is sparking controversy with its depiction of a fictional France of the future led by an Islamic party and a Muslim president who bans women from the workplace.
Further, from The Guardian:
Charlie Hebdo has a long record of taking its satire seriously. The weekly magazine’s response to previous efforts at intimidation was to be even more controversial or outrageous, defying the constraints of religious sensitivity or political correctness.
In November 2011, its offices were fire-bombed after it had published a special edition, supposedly guest-edited by the Prophet Mohammed and temporarily renamed ‘Charia Hebdo’. The cover was a cartoon of Mohammed threatening the readers with ‘a hundred lashes if you don’t die laughing’.
The petrol bomb attack completely destroyed the Paris offices, the magazine’s website was hacked and the staff were subjected to death threats. But six days later, it published a new front page depicting a male Charlie Hebdo cartoonist passionately kissing a bearded Muslim man in front of the charred aftermath of the bombing. The headline this time was: L’Amour plus fort que la haine (Love is stronger than hate).

You know, it’s “time to move beyond” the slaughter of 43 kids…
Mexico explains that police killing 22 people/43 abducted students and Ferguson are sameys.
Obama seeks help of Mexico’s Pena Nieto on Cuba, immigration
President Barack Obama is hosting Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto at the White House Tuesday, looking to his southern neighbor for help implementing the president’s changing policies on immigration and Cuba.
…Both actions from Obama in recent weeks drew praise from Pena Nieto, who may be hoping his visit to the White House can help give him a boost after a 2014 marked by scandal, violence and corruption. That includes soldiers killing 22 civilians in a questionable “shootout” and revelations that Pena Nieto and his treasury secretary live in luxury homes built and financed by a favorite government contractor.
Perhaps most notably, tens of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets to protest the Sept. 26 abduction and presumed murder of 43 college students, allegedly at the hands of local officials and police in league with a drug cartel.
Pena Nieto told the country it was time to “move beyond” the case just weeks after their abduction, and he took a month to meet with their families.
…Sergio Alcocer, Mexican undersecretary for North America affairs, said he didn’t expect the student abduction specifically to come up between the two presidents. Alcocer pointed out that the United States has had its own scandal and protests over the shooting of unarmed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
A BIG “get over it” and then a month before he meets with parents?
Sheesh. That’s almost like hustling back to your golf cart right after saying two perfunctory words about a tragedy.
But no one does that.
Man, we just have the Smartest, Bestest Negotiating Diplomatic Genius President EVUH
State: Yeah, we don’t know if Cuba has released the 53 prisoners we required they release
State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki repeatedly refused to answer questions this afternoon about the 53 political detainees Cuba promised to release as part of a deal with President Obama to normalize relations with the United States.
When asked about a lack of transparency in the prisoner exchange process, Psaki said, “Well, we know who’s on there. And the Cuban government knows who’s on there.” …
After Psaki stated that she had no updates to provide, a befuddled Matt Lee asked, “Hold on — hold on a second. Can we — I mean, is it — what’s happening? Are they out? Are they not out? … Where are they?”
Psaki responded, “I don’t have any more updates to provide for you, Matt.”
Lee, frustrated, followed up, “So the Cubans don’t actually have to do anything?”
It is beyond pathetic.
