1. Daily Mail: ‘We will chop off the heads of whoever you bring’: British ISIS fighter dares west to send ground troops in new video rant – despite fanatics being pushed back in Kobane

2. The first minute of this video is amazing before the military spokesman catches his footing and remembers to repeat the mantra.

(Odd as I would have expected any student union to support the Islamic State)

4. Obama May Send National Guard to Liberia to Fight Ebola: Sources

President Barack Obama is expected to issue an executive order Thursday paving the way for the deployment of National Guard forces to Liberia to help contain the Ebola outbreak there, sources told NBC News.

The sources said that eight engineers and logistical specialists from the Guard, both active-duty and reservists, would probably be included in the first deployment. They are expected to help build 17 Ebola treatment centers, with 100 beds apiece. The sources said that no decision had been made.

6. Second Strain of Ebola Identified in The Congo: Mortality Rate at 71 Percent

The world may be facing two deadly Ebola outbreaks, now a new strain of the virus has been discovered in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), which so far has killed 71 percent of those infected.

The virus in the DRC, which is nearly 2,300 miles away from the most eastern extent of the much larger West-African outbreak has been studied by a joint French-Canadian team of virologists for the World Health Organisation who confirmed that it was distinct, sharing only 96.8 percent of genetic material: “The complete genome sequence of the virus responsible… confirms that it is a virus Ebola species but it shows that the Congolese strain is different from Africa West”.

7. Priest, air passenger among six hospitalized in Spain for Ebola tests

  1. #1 Just once in my lifetime we should give the troops all the supplies and support they need and turn them loose, let them fight a total war like WWII and scare the bad guys into being good for a while.

  2. London terror suspect recording: ‘Terrorist’ is a great word to describe me (CNN, Oct 16, 2014)

    “A British man charged with planning either a “Mumbai-style” terror attack or an attack on a prominent person said in secret recordings that he had been to Syria and reveled in the idea of being labeled a terrorist, a court in London heard Thursday.

    Erol Incedal, 26, is accused of preparing terrorist acts with the intention of committing terrorism, and of having documents on how to build a bomb.

    He denies the charges against him.

    Police first detained Incedal, a British citizen of Turkish descent, over a traffic violation in London in September 2013. During a search of his car, they found a piece of paper with the address of a property tied to former British Prime Minister Tony Blair written on it.

    Police planted a secret listening device in Incedal’s E-Class Mercedes before releasing him.

    The recordings, revealed this week at his trial, give “a flavor” of the law student’s frame of mind in the weeks before he was arrested again in October of last year and formally charged, the prosecution said…..”

  3. 5/ It’s good to see the issue raised but it would be better if the segment didn’t go by so fast. A couple minutes longer would have been time for Andy McCarthy to take his manual of Islamic law from his back pocket and show the viewing audience that jihad has a legal definition in Islam that Muslims who write handbooks like this one are deliberately lying about.

  4. The title of the piece should include the far more dangerous Fifth Column in our own society: “To understand radical leftism (aka ‘progressives’ or the co-opted term ‘liberals’), reverse everything decent or that works.”

  5. #2

    Have you ever seen anybody look so unsure of themselves and hesitant and pessimistic as this poor top-brass yes-man? “There are going to be good days…bad days…problems…wins…losses…sniff…”. What BS! What a horrible ad for the United States Armed Forces. He has been told that the road to promotion lies with toeing the party line, and damn it, he’s going to get that promotion if it kills him – which it very well might, because coronary arteries really don’t like it when their owners get their souls crushed like that. I doubt if he has slept for weeks. The poor man is tortured…

  6. 4/Shouldn’t we, as citizens, have a right to accept or reject this use of the military?

    We – through Congress – must vote for or against military expeditions abroad. Why don’t we have an up-or-down vote now for deployment in Ebolaland?

    The National Guard is just that – the safe-guard for our nation when local and state police forces are overwhelmed by an extraordinary threat.

    Is it even legal to divert these resources from their designated function? Particularly now, when we might have to call on the Guard to protect our airports or enforce quarantine measures here, in the USA.

    • Isn’t the National Guard under State – not Federal – control?
      Otherwise it would be in violation of the “standing army” – bit in the Constitution.

      • Most people think that the Guard are the old State Militias but they aren’t, they claim descent from them but are part of the regular military establishment that the Federal Government can use any time it wants. The State use is the Feds allowing the state to use Federal resources, and a way around the Posse Commitus (sp?) act that forbid (I think it has been repealed) the use of US military to enforce US laws.
