    They said the Tunisians sent in an Anti Terrorism Squad. That was a couple hours ago.

    I hope you're wrong, sigh. Print media still reporting "only" 19. Even one fewer is a blessing.

    Lets not rush to judgement n stuff. How could anyone get the idea that over 20 westerners murdered in north Africa could have anything to do with terrorism?

    So do I. Westerners bringing tourism to the region and being interested in local culture is clearly a threat.

    As a side note, Tunisians have a long history of practicing "Islam light". Though I doubt the place was ever Amsterdam, alcohol is freely available, their first Presdient married an unconverted Catholic, and the previous government banned burkas and also banned hijab variations that were not local. They also discouraged untrimmed beards (Islamacists seem to have aversions to razors).

    Sadly, Tunisia has massive unemployment even by north African standards. This probably contributes to the bored, impressionable and unemployed youth drifting over to Al Queda and ISIS.


    How can anyone suggest that Obama is winning the war on terrorism?

    When he took office, terror was on the wane, even Odie Obama said so. There were two war fronts, one being fought with allies and drones, and one he "ended" his own words.

    Now we have a bloodthirsty gang of psychotics running rampant over half of Syria and Iraq, wars in six or seven other countries, an ISIS stronghold 300 KM from a frightened Pope who is calling for global warfare, and attacks coming weekly in new areas, the death toll rising as each hour passes.

    And the US response?

    "They need jobs"

    Einstein once noted that insanity is doing something again and again and getting no change, Obama does the same thing over and over and gets change....for the worse

    Obama is also still insisting that the US train and fund the "moderate" Syrian rebels- though there are very moderates still fighting against Assad. No doubt most of that training will filter to ISIS, Al Queda, Al Nusra etc.

    I think Obama views himself as a mystical and mythical "enlightener" who brings western style democracy and Amsterdam style social tolerance to the Middle East. To do so, he needs "Arab Springs" in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Syria, despite the fact that such "Springs" dont bring democracy, and only open the door for ISIS to move into countries where they were afraid to go earlier.

    That is remarkably insightful.

    And it recalled what I had read of his "Lies my father told me..." or whatever, where he kind of paints his upbringing as "enlightened", his statements about "my Islamic faith" and also being a "moderate Christian" all point to a concept of himself as a man of the world. So, it makes sense that he would see himself a new kind of world king who brings peace and joy.

    The only problem is he's incompetent


    PS, Amsterdam may have a name for tolerance, but it is not. All of Holland, when compared to Canada is fairly bigoted, and in Vancouver we see them as near racists. and we have much better "medicine" in our cafes...

    Heya Cryptic. Dempsey was on the Hill today being questioned about arming those so called Syrian Rebels. Truly what a waste of money and time that is.
