(Mogadishu)  As if there isn't enough problems in the world, this evening some nutter drove a Car bomb into the Luul Yamani restaurant and no doubt uttered  'Allah ackba':

Interlude: The Searchers - Sugar And Spice

Sweden: 'Suspected 'Terrorist' goes on stabbing rampage

(Vetlanda)  A 22 year old male from Afghanistan decided to go on a stabbing spree in a small town 175 miles south of the capital where he attacked and injured 8 random people with an axe.

 The police arrived within minutes and resolved the situation by simply shoingt him in which to underline the adage:

“Never bring an axe to a gun fight”

Initially the police declared it was attempted murder but later announced they had opened a terrorist investigation. Gee I wonder why that is. Oh here’s a picture of the guilty person after he had been shot by the police and apprehended.

China: Using the COVID crisis to play vaccine Diplomacy

(Beijing) The world is currently rolling out vaccines to combat the COVID epidemic which spread out from China at the start of last year. 




The countries which funded research into vaccines are the ones who are in the lead regards vaccinating their populations, this has lead to the usual suspects opining that this is a form of racism and that rich countries who can afford vaccines should be handing over vaccines to poor countries before vaccinating their entire populations we saw this with Israel being berated for not vaccinating the West bank and Gaza which have their own governments, we saw it with the UK when the new leader of the WTO demanded that the UK diverts its vaccines to poorer countries rather than vaccinate its own.  leaving out that the UK has seen the worst death rate across Europe (122K as of 02/03/21)



There is also a demand that the US (which has the worst death rate in the world) to hand over vaccines to Mexico. Well it appears that China is cashing in, by offering batches of their own C19 vaccine to countries around the world , no doubt to gain future leverage on the political playground also known as the UN . Whilst everybody bar the UK and Israel are having issues getting their hands on enough vaccines, China has been sending plane loads of their own vaccine around the world

UK: Algerian Asylum seeker jailed after trying to attack TV anchor live on TV whilst screaming 'Allah ackba'

(London) Last year during the woke BLM protests around the world after a violent career criminal was killed during his drug fuel arrest , 25 year old Algerian asylum seeker Soofuu Yakr, took umbridge at seeing an Australian news team covering the protests in London and decided to regale news correspondent Sophie Walsh to the sounds of 'Allah ackba' whilst trying to stab her with a screwdriver.  She pushed him away, and he was chased by the camera resulting in him getting picked up by the police.


Well yesterday he had his day in court and was jailed for 18 months, the problem here is, he will remain in the Uk, me, I would send him back to Algeria at the end of his sentence, pretty sure if the West deported other so called asylum seekers gone bad, the message would soon get through that to claim asylum in the Uk entails respecting of way of life.

Germany: Picks Israeli Trophy Active protection system for its Tanks

(Berlin)  Last Tuesday Germany became the latest nation to purchase the Trophy Active Protection System (APS) in which to protect its leopard 2 tanks. The standing of the Leopard 2 - widely seen as one of the best tanks in the world- took a huge fall from grace , after Turkey suffered a large number of humiliating losses to its own Leopard 2 tanks during its military adventures in Syria to missile armed ISIS terrorists (As well as the Kurds)





To be fair the Turks Leopards were of the A4 variant which aren't as modern as the A7+ variant of 2010 vintage. But nevertheless the image of the Leopard 2 has been stained due to how its side armour is susceptible to anti tank missiles. Which is why the German Military free from the hand of the ruinous  Ursula von der Leyen who really crippled the German military during her stint as defence minister (Now doing the same as the leader of the EU)  have looked at the problem at hand and purchased the Israeli 'Trophy' APS system 

US: Release's video of the Ballistic strikes carried by Iran in 2020

(Washington) After the US took out Iranian general Soleimani last year, the Iranians retaliated with a so called one off missile strike on a US base. At the time, it was hinted that the Iranians in an effort to curb dissent at home informed the US of where they were going to strike so as to end the discussion, this saw the US evacuate 51 aircraft from the base prior to the missile strike and around 1000 men. 


However information revealed by the US military to 60 mins , states that actually that US intelligence had picked up advance warning that the Iranians were going to strike and that the downloading of satellite maps of a paid website of the target area gave the US the exact target (why they would reveal this info is beyond me)  anyway the Iranians lobbed 16 missiles at Al-Asad, with 5 failing to take off, they also lobbed 2 at Erbil in the north of Iraq, but one missed by 20 miles and the other was said to have been shot down resulting in the warhead failing to detonate.  Anyway the US military have released drone video of the first six strikes as viewed from the air, and for some strange reason allowed the US news program to air that video along with interviews with the the soldiers present. The strange thing I cannot understand here is if the Iranians had killed 100s of US soldiers, a lot of Iran would still be smoking today, and the mullahs know that, because despite its so called military might, Iran actually isnt that powerful, yes it can lob missiles, and carry out asymmetrical attacks, but a mighty military power it isn't . Which begs me to ask the question why has the US government decided to allow the military to publicly discuss the subject at hand? The 60 minutes interview:

 

Meanwhile the Biden administration cant jump through enough hoops in which to try and engineer a meeting with the Iranians in which to try and get them to return to the nuclear deal, which Trump pulled out of due to many instances of Tehran breaking it. In return the Iranians are going about upping the ante with all the neighbours simply in which to garner as many concessions from Biden as possible,
