    Still doing that today.

    During the 16th century, the Brits were beheading and putting severed heads on spikes all along the London Bridge.


    I can't say they're doing that today ....except that the guy cutting off heads in the ISIS videos is British.

    General Petraeus testified that We had been aware of AQ and Ansar al Sharia the year prior to the Benghazi attacks.

    Oh and you are aware that it was Team Lost Sheep of the BO Peep that hired Ansar al Sharia as Security for Benghazi. Now just how did they do that Moot?

    Knowing damn well that the founder and Creator of Ansar al Sharia was none other than Bin Laden's Driver. You weren't going to say that Team BO.....didn't know that, now.....were you?


    Benghazi was never secure after Gadhafi was killed. Only time.....was when Hillary went and paid the visit. Due to all the added and Upgraded temp security all for her wannabe royalness.
    I didn't say Benghazi was secure. I said that was why the CIA were there and if the right wing hadn't politicized the operation there might be a consulate there today.

    "...Ansar al-Sharia was formed during the Libyan Civil War and rose to prominence after the killing of Muammar Gaddafi..."

    They were just a small grass roots militia. Not any more, eh? The CIA mission was to secure the area for diplomats by disarming the local militias. The constant attention on Benghazi probably lured every wannabe jiiadists in Africa to the area.

    Vlad the Impaler did the same. Not sure if it's designed to frighten, intimidate or demoralize your opponent.

    They already had the foothold in Libya.....also you said the security could have continued with the CIA. But then you forgot the Libyans Knew what Business was being conducted. So to did Ansar al Sharia and AQ.


    Oh, and yes the branch in Libya started then.....but here is it Origins, and its real beginning.


    The naming trend actually started in Yemen, when al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the powerful and ambitious local al Qaeda branch, established the front group Ansar al-Sharia in Yemen in April 2011. It is possible this was born out of Osama bin Laden's musings over whether to rebrand al Qaeda. None of the names in the documents captured from the late al Qaeda leader's compound mentioned Ansar al-Sharia as a potential example, however. More recently, one of the preeminent global jihadi ideologues, Shaykh Abu al-Mundhir al-Shinqiti, put his stamp of approval on the new wave of Ansar al-Sharia groups.

    Shinqiti, who is of Mauritanian origin, published an article in mid-June titled "We Are Ansar al-Sharia," calling Muslims to establish their own dawa (missionary) Ansar al-Sharia groups in their respective countries and then to unite into one conglomerate. It should be noted that most of the Ansar al-Sharia groups were already created beforehand. The most prominent of these organizations are the ones in Yemen, Tunisia, and Libya, along with newer versions in Egypt and Morocco to a lesser extent.

    The rise of these Ansar al-Sharia groups points to an end of al Qaeda's unipolar global jihad of the past decade and a return to a multipolar jihadosphere, similar to the 1990s. One key difference, however, is that jihadi groups are now more ideologically homogenous -- in the 1990s, jihadis thought locally and acted locally, while many now talk globally and act locally. These newer groups are also more interested in providing services and governance to their fellow Muslims.....snip~

    I think it's meant to do all three and to remind people what happens to them if they break the laws...or even if they don't. I've been reading that it was the Protestant Reformation that brought Christianity out of the dark ages and into the enlightenment period aka modern world. So perhaps a Reformation is what Islam needs, too.

One of the militants in the video, speaking English, makes direct reference to that possibility, saying the group now plans to "conquer Rome."

    Synchronized decapitations...a barbaric ballet of death. How long will the world tolerate this evil?
    I don't seem to recall any Christians being beheaded in Syria when president Assad had full operational control of Syria. Yet again we see that US policy has led to a crises that just conveniently, for a few, warmongers, the MIC, and the fringe right, could lead to further US military intervention.

    Same thing in Syria, the secular Islamists ( so called moderates) can't stand up to religious fanaticism as a motivator

    Bingo. we have a winner.
    And this woman is leading the pack for the next president of the US?

    No way,no how will I ever support her, she is an utter failure -that and her 'Friends with Syria" meddling ,
    and her "reset" button with Russian FM Lavrov means she isn't qualified to be a DC dogcatcher

    It can be the other way around, too. You can take out a perfectly democratic government and install a right wing dictator, as was the case with several Latin American countries, and have an equally "perfect storm".
