US: Wow, just wow

(Washington) Jonny Kim born 1985 in Los Angeles to South Korean parents. After graduating from Santa Monica High School in 2002, Kim enlisted in the Navy as a seaman and made the cut for the elite SEAL team. Earning his way onto San Diego-based SEAL Team Three, Kim served as a sniper, navigator and point man, among other roles, on over 100 combat missions in the Middle East, earning Silver and Bronze stars. In 2006 while in Iraq, two of Kim’s closest friends were shot on the same day. Kim was serving as a medic and treated one of the friends who had a facial wound. Neither friend survived. The deaths of his friends left him with a “feeling of helplessness” and led to his decision to become a doctor. After earning a mathematics degree from the University of San Diego in 2012, Kim went to Harvard Medical School earning a medical degree in 2016. One year into his residency at Massachusetts General Hospital Kim would learn he had been chosen as a NASA astronaut candidate out of a pool out of over 18,000 applicants.

Gaza: So is Gaza really a concentration camp?

(Gaza city)  So how often have you heard on the news that the people of Gaza are suffering due to the terrible siege imposed on it by Israel. We are bombarded with pictures such as these:

Nobody in the right mind would find the above acceptable. Yet I came across this video today which shows 2 young girls doing a 60 sec shopping basket challenge in a Gaza supermarket:
Hang on, do those girls look impoverished, are the shelves bare ? and before somebody claims it isn't GAZA somebody went to the trouble of looking it up: Here's another one from a week ago:
Here's a chocolate shop:
Fancy a good night out with the kids:
What happens if you can't be asked to go out, why you order in:
Hey I'll admit that some people in Gaza will be poor, but there are poor people the world over.but its not the concentration camp full of starving people the media likes to push out. Oh if you have time watch this video from Gazan Vlogger  Khaleel Moeen where he video blogs about shopping in Gaza. From the looks of things he has a decent dentist, which will help with all the sweet stuff they stuff themselves with in Gaza, Which helps explain why Gaza has an obesity problem

UK: Mohamed ,Muhammed and Mohammed in court over ISIS propaganda

(London) Whilst the liberal chattering classes continue to peddle the line that the Uk is a vastly Islamophobic country which today saw the BBC peddle the line that stopping Somali families  (who came to the Uk claiming asylum)  from taking their daughters back home in case they become victims of FGM is somehow...racist.

3 young lads , funny enough all called Mohammed found themselves in the dock of the local court in Westminster on charges of  sharing ,possession and publicising videos and magazines produced by Islamic State. All three (23 year old Mohamed Ismail,19 year old  Muhammed Tahir and 21 year old Mohammed Saeed, 21) were remanded in custody and saw their case kicked upstairs to the old Bailey . So much for the UK being Islamophobic

Iraq: Another Iranian PMU militia leader taken out

(Baghdad) Whilst the media waxes lyrical about the assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, what they have failed to mention is that the Popular Mobilization Units  (PMU) an organisation composed of some 40 militias that are mostly Shia Muslim groups, predominantly Iranian leaning , and used by Iran in which to insert its influence into Iraqi politics  has since that air-strike suffered something of a decapitation of its senior leaders. Along with Soleimani was killed the deputy leader of the PMU in Iraq  Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, PMU and PR head Mohammed Redha al-Jabri.

At the same time as the air strike on the above US special forces sneaked in and took into custody Qais Khazali, leader of PMU group Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq & Hadi al-Amiri, former head of IRGC's Badr Organization in Baghdad.

A day later a missile strike by the US saw several PMU leaders taken out including Shibl al-Zaydi, secretary general of IRGC backed Kata'ib al-Imam Ali

And so it is that this evening it has been reported that unknown gunmen have killed Taleb Abbas Ali al-Saedi the leader of the PMU special forces unit the Karbala Brigades, along with a couple of his mates. Its as if somebody is cutting off the many heads of the Iranian beast inside Iraq.

Iran: Protests erupt after Mullahs admit after days of denying it that they shot down Ukrainian Jet.

(Tehran) After days of categorically denying they had anything to do with the downing of Ukrainian airlines flight 752. The mullahs in charge of their little theological empire , on seeing the increasing amount of evidence piling up against them came to the realisation that this was a hole they couldn't get out , not matter how much they blamed others and so decided to put their hand up and admit that they did in fact shoot down said jet killing all 176 people on board .

Well, that hasn't gone well with the downtrodden plebs inside the country who only 2 months after seeing over 9000 arrested and 1500 killed over the rises to the cost of living whilst the country spent billions waging wage across the region, have taken to the streets yet again in which to demand the removal from power of the Mullahs. So far its early days and the authorities whilst clamping down on the protesters haven't yet resorted to firearms, no doubt knowing that this time the world is watching:

Funny how the mainstream media in the West, which aired hours of the funeral of Solemani , haven't got round to reporting this yet.

Pakistan: Taliban mosque hit by ISIS bomb: 15 killed.

(Quetta)  A bomb blast inside a mosque in southwestern Pakistan, frequented by senior Taliban figures, killed at least 15 people on Friday and wounded at least 18 more.

The blast tore through the mosque during evening prayers in Quetta, the provincial capital of Baluchistan Province, which borders Afghanistan and Iran. The Islamic State have claimed responsibility for the bombing.

Pakistan: Judge and wife who abused child domestic help released from jail early

(Islamabad) In 2016, police were called to the home of Pakistani Judge Raja Khurram Ali after his neighbours reported him for child abuse after photos of an abused child started to circulate on social media and they recognised her.

There they found Tayyaba  a young 10 year old domestic worker . She was rescued from their residence with visible wounds (cuts and bruising to her face, along with a swollen left eye and burns to her hands and feet on December 28, 2016. The judge and his wife were jailed and when they tried to appeal, they saw their sentence increased. The thing is Pakistan is a corrupt country and today the judge and his wife saw their sentence cut to 1 year (a term they have already served,) leaving them free to leave. As you can guess, this hasn’t gone down well with the public,

Germany: Somali assailant calls police after his victim fights back and beats him up

(Geradstetten)  New Year ’s Eve and a 25 year old Somali migrant thought it was easy pickings when he spotted a lone man stood at the local train station, so he launched an attack, problem was, the other fellow was having none of this and proceeded to beat up his assailant resulting in the Somali fellow having to take himself to the local Hospital in which to get treated for several bleeding lacerations on the face, a knocked out tooth and an injured tongue, At the Hospital he rang the police in which to report his assault and as this is the West, they are looking into the case in which to see if the man who fought back went too far.

UK: knife attack carried out in prison , injures 5 prison officers

(Cambridge)  1 Islamic terrorist and a violent thug who converted to Islam inside prison decided to launch a violent attack using homemade knifes whilst wearing fake suicide vests on prison staff  in HMP Whitemoor in Cambridgeshire, as cells were being opened Thursday morning which saw 5 staff injured. Unfortunately for these allah akbar zeros they were quickly disarmed

The main instigator 24 year old Brusthom Ziamani,  (The child of  Congolese migrants who converted to Islam) was jailed in 2015 for 22 years after he was arrested on the streets of London after his then girlfriend reported him to the police that he was armed with a knife and was on his way to behead a British army cadet (a child)  at a nearby Army cadet hut. But get this he appealed his original sentence , claiming ti was too harsh, he won and it was reduced by 3 years . Maybe its time that the judges who sit on these appeal courts are given new guidelines, such as if you get it wrong (which is happening more and more often,)  then you will be charged.

Brusthom Ziamani,
In prison Ziamani befriended another inmate (not named) who had converted in prison and this morning it appeared they wanted to go out in style.

Somalia: Car bomb kills 4 wounds 15

(Mogadishu)  Four people were killed, including a senior government official, when a car bomb exploded close to a checkpoint near Somalia's parliament in the capital Mogadishu on Wednesday. Apparently the driver of the vehicle was trying to sneak the V-IED past the check point when he was discovered, he decided to utter allah ackba killing the brave soldiers manning the check point. 15 people nearby were also injured

Islamist group Al-Shabaab have claimed the attack

Niger: 25 soldiers killed in atatcked

(Chinagodrar) An attack thursday on an army post on the Niger /Mali border resulted in 25 soldiers being killed and another 6 injured. The Niger government is claiming that 63 attackers were killed during the attack which took place near the village of Chinegodar which is situated to the north of the capital  at around 1300hrs local time.

As usual nobody has admitted to the attack.

Wales: Mosque where Jailed Paedophile Mullah abused children to host his funeral

(Cardiff) 83 year old Mohammed Sadiq the mullah for Madina Mosque in the Welsh capital was jailed in July 2017 for sexually abusing 4 children between 1996 and 2006 . He was jailed for 13 years, but appealed and saw his sentence reduced to 9 year, Well he's dead having kicked the bucket yesterday.

But here's where everything goes wrong and is one of the reason Muslims get a bad press, the mosque where he carried out the abuse is hosting his funeral tomorrow. Couldn't make it up if you tried, yes there's forgiveness, but this is a bloke who never expressed any remorse for his victims, who most possibly still attend the same mosque. 

Can you image their anger at seeing people pay their respects to a nonce.

iran: official media blurs out the women in a photo found at aircraft crash site:

(Tehran) It never fails to amaze me, how religious bigots who claim they are scared of nothing, not even dying are scared shit less of a woman who hasn't covered up. Amongst the debris found at the crashsite of the Ukrainian aircraft which crashed Wednesday morning was a wedding snap of a Canadian couple who were returning home to Canada after visiting family in Iran. The Islamic Republic News Agency, the official news agency of the Islamic Republic of Iran decided to blur out the woman as she wasn’t covered up. 

The photo can be found here 

Iran: Was that Ukrainian 737 which crashed last night shot down by mistake

(Tehran) Early this morning Flight PS 752  belonging to Ukrainian Airlines took off from Tehran with 172 passengers and crew, within minutes the Boeing 737 had crashed on the outskirts of the city.

The actual crash was captured on film:
Iran is claiming this was simply an accident. However it has refused to hand over the two black-boxes retrieved from the crash to Boeing for them to check the crash data, as of yet it is not known whom they will send the blackboxes to. This has lead to rumours that the Iranians are trying to hide something and they have had to issue a denial that they shot down the airliner:

Screen dump from Mehr News
Well things appear to have a taken a turn for the worse for the Iranians as a photo of a seeker head for a Russian made TOR  9M330 Surface to air missiles . An advanced anti aircraft missile system of which Iran has purchased 29 and which just happened to be lying around near the crash site.

Have a look at that missile head, now compare it with the missile in question:

It looks like Iran is going to have to answer to a lot of questions especially after pictures of the crashed plane appeared to show damage consistent of an air-burst from an outside explosion such as a proximity fuse of an anti-aircraft missile:

UK: 10 Pakistanis in court over the rape of a child.

(Sheffield) It never ends does it, in Sheffield, 9 Paksitani males are having their day in court  accused of raping a girl when she was aged between 15 and 17 - treating her 'like a piece of meat' and abusing her 'for their own sexual gratification'.

In court were:
  • Usman Din, 35, on three counts of rape and one count of trafficking.
  • Tony Juone, 61, on one count of rape.
  • Kamaran Mahmoodi, 39, on one count of rape.
  • Shangar Ibrahimi, 30, on one count of rape.
  • Farhad Mirzaie, 29, on two counts of rape.
  • Kawan Omar Ahmed, 31, on two counts of rape.
  • Saman Mohammed, 41, on one count of rape.
  • Jasim Sammad Mohammed, 37, on three counts of rape.
  • Nzar Anwar, 40, on one count of rape and one count of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
  • A 10th defendant, Saba Moussa Mohammad, 41, on a single count of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
But get this the victim reported her rapes to the Police in Sheffield not once, but twice and the police not wishing to be seen as racist refused to believe her.
Personally I would like to see the officers who refused to follow up also in the dock and jailed

Iraq: Iran strikes 3 bases where the US is based.

(Baghdad) This morning, the mullahs of Iran set in motion  Operation Soleimani when in conjunction with their proxies (presumed to be Kataib Hezbollah) they launched a missile attack on US assets inside Iraq.  The bases are Ain Al-Asad to the west of Baghdad

and two military bases in use by US Army in & near Erbil which is in the north of the country,

The attack on Ain Al-Asad airbase saw around 40 Katyusha rockets (short-range 122mm missiles as seen used by Hamas) which pack around a 20kg warhead  These were backed up by 6 Fateh-110 ballistic missiles launched from inside Iran they have a range of around 300Kms and have a 750kg warhead.
BM 21, launch vehicle for 40 Katyusha rockets

Regards the missiles strikes to the north of the country in the city of Erbil, the Iranians have launched 6 Qiam-1 missiles (The missile is a derivative of the Scud missile) at two separate targets apparently 5 missiles missed their target  with another being taken out by a Counter Rocket, Artillery, and Mortar platform (C-RAM) basically its a chain gun fitted to a radar which fires around 4500 20mm shells in the direction of anything heading its way. (Video here)

Reports coming in are stating that nobody was killed with the Iranian issuing a warning that if the US retaliates they will target the UAE and Israel.

As usual the Iranian media are bigging up the story for the Western media and their loyal subjects back home claiming they have launched dozens of missiles at Ain Al-Asad claiming to have destroyed 10s of US fighter jets. The thing is the US has no jets in Iraq, they are all based out of the country. The only assets based there are Helicopters and Drones.
With no US casualties after a very heavy missile bombardment, where a lot of the missiles missed their target, either the Iranians are crap , the US got very lucky , or it was something else. I'd like to believe that the Iranians want to deescalate the situation,  That way they can save face at home and allow POTUS to climb down. Now we will have to wait to say how the traitorous Western media will report this. No doubt the headlines in the morning will be Iran  taught the US a lesson, you know like they did with Israel in 2006 against Hezballah.

UK: Indonesian jailed for raping 136 men

(Manchester) A court in the UK has today sentenced 36 year old Indonesian student Reynhard Sinaga to 60 years in jail with him having to serve a  minimum of 30 years before he can be considered for parole  over the rapes of 136 men.

Sinaga  who arrived in the Uk as a student in 2007  appeared to have a habit of acting as a good Samaritan to lost, confused or drunk young males. He would invite them back to his place in which to use  his place and drug them, there he would rape them, with the victim none the wiser afterwards.

His strange hobby came to an abrupt end when his last victim (an 18 year old male) woke up after being drugged and found his pants around his ankles and slim built Sinaga sexuality molesting him. Unfortunately for Sinaga the 18 year old was a rugby player who then proceeded to beat him to a pulp (resulting in a hospital stay) and called the police, who as they are the British police arrested the rugby player. problem for Sinaga was, his phone was in his pocket and when the old bill checked it, they found video evidence of him raping at least 190 men. Which led to his arrest and a huge court case which has lasted for 2 years due to the huge number of victims of which the police are still unable to identify at least 70.

Today he was convicted of 159 offences committed from January 2015 to May 2017 and jailed for 60 years with him having to serve a minimum of at least 30 years before he will be considered for parole.

Owlkitty: "Lord of the Rings"

I was sent this, and I thought it was brilliant. enjoy:

Libya: What is happening (Part 3)

(Tripoli)  Whilst Turkey was denied the ability to reinforce the GNA with heavy weapons by the Greeks and Egyptians , the LNA has been receiving arms and vehicles by sea and air:

And quickly dispatched towards the front line in which to combat the Syrian rebels flown in these past few weeks before the Turks pull their finger out:
Which is where a LNA drone spotting a group of men unleashed a missile the otherday killing 30 people and injuring another 33 on the premise that they were Syrian rebels. Unfortunately they were army cadets:
The bitter irony here is there is an actual war going on in Libya, and has been in one form or another for the past 9 years. The other day 30 men were killed and another 33 injured and not one liberal in the west is bothered, but take out a terrorist enabler who ordered the murder of over 1500 of his own people and the liberal world is up in arms.

Libya: What is happening (Part 2)

(Tripoli) So after the Turks sent thousands of Syrians rebels to fight the good fight

and straight away they got stuck in:
However the LNA have helicopter gunships such as the Mil 24 and  Mil 35, which in a nutshell are  flying tanks:
Knowing that time is of the essence Turkey voted to send a load of its own troops last week, and tried to set up a deal with Tunisia , where they offered to build  a children's hospital, in exchange for a spot at one of their military airfields for Turkish F16s, unfortunately for the Turks the Tunisians said no.
Denied that crucial air support which could turn the tide in the GMAs favour, the Turks looked set to send a fleet off the shore of Libya. But that was too was stymied when Egypt and Greece taking a page out of Ankara book of declaring an area off-limits by hosting a military exercise  between the two nations effectively blocking any Turkish reinforcements from reaching Libya by sea

Libya: What is happening (Part 1)

(Tripoli) The current bun fight currently taking place in Libya is getting murkier by the day. The UN approved government  'the Government of National Accord (GNA)' split in half in 2015 with the Tobruk based Libyan House of Representatives forming its own government in 2016 and finally going its own way in 2017. since then the  2 sides have been at war in which to take control of the entire country . Unfortunately for the GNA, it is a hotchpotch of tribes and doesn't have the military might of the  House of Representatives army 'the Libyan National Army' (LNA) led by Khalifa Haftar. who is supported by the UAE, Egypt and Russia with arms and money. After clearing out the areas around Tobruk of militia and warlords, the LNA set its sights on Tripoli and currently has the capital surrounded as depicted by the following three maps taken from Live maps

Maps from Live maps
The situation on the ground is that everything blue is controlled by the GNA, everything red is controlled by the LNA. As you can see the latter has the upperhand.  As mentioned the LNA has some powerful and rich friends , air-support has been provided by the UAE , Russia is providing an extensive repair facility which in the 11 months up to last Sept inspected, serviced and repaired the following
  • 100 T-55, 35 T-62, and 10 T-72 tanks; 
  • 77 BMP-1 infantry fighting vehicles; 
  • 210 BTR-60 armoured personnel carriers; 
  • 21 BREM armoured recovery vehicles; 
  • 41 BRDM-2 armoured reconnaissance vehicles;
  • 10 MT-LB armoured tracked carriers. 
  • 20 2S1 self-propelled gun-howitzers,
  • 6 BM-21 multiple rocket launchers, 
  • 1 2S3 self-propelled howitzer.
The support from the UAE and Russia has been invaluable and currently they have the GNA besieged.  What I find strange is that the GNA is the official UN government and whilst the UN will not get involved in a  civil war, the support of the three countries listed should be enough for the UN to do something m, but like elsewhere it is impotent and the only country which has gone on record to help the GNA has been Turkey. it supplied the GNA with MRAP vehicles last year and supported them with UAVs, problem is, the LNA have taken a very heavy toll amongst the Turkish supplied drones. Last week Turkey voted to send troops to Libya in which to prevent the fall of the GNA. But before that they deployed thousands of Syrian rebels last week where they stemmed an LNA thrust near the capital with 3 suicide bomb attacks.

US: Trump plays Iran at their own game of bluster

(Washington)  The Iranians have become used to intimidating others with the threats of attacks, until now the only people who have stood up to them were the Iraqis under Saddam and Israel. The Europeans under the leadership of the french and Germans have been appeasing Iran for so long, that Tehran simply treats them for the vassals they are. (Think I'm kidding , Iran kidnaps dual citizens and the Europeans instead of saying enough is enough, can't bend over fast enough for the mullahs in Tehran in which to scream out hit me master) so after the mad mullahs stated they had lined up 25 targets in which to punish America, they never expected the following reply from President Trump:

And they (And the left) have crapped themselves. Iran which threatens others every-other day with death and destruction for even looking in their direction, has gone running to the UN. The left have on mass started apologising to the mad mullahs. Its a joke and with a mindset like that the left deserve to be conquered by the sword of Islam. I left the gay death cult as a child when I was placed in care and I understand fully that Muslims see an apology as a weakness to be exploited. Kind of explains why they keep on playing the Islamophobia card in the Uk in which to try and gain more concessions. Anyway I am currently laughing my socks off at how the Iranians are screaming foul play over the above tweet.

France: Police shoot 'Allah ackba' knifeman

(Metz) Well 2 days after the police shot dead a what they claimed was a mentally disturbed man in Paris (changed it yesterday to a terror incident)  Guess what the police have shot another Islamic knife-man.

This time round, police were called to a man with a knife known to them for his jihadist ways and (I kid you not)  for a personality disorder”. why is all these Islamic knife-man are always reported to be window lickers.. and then a few days later, the authorities quietly let slip that actually he was a terrorist.  As the police approached him in which to take him into custody , he threatened them whilst shouting out the immortal words 'Allah ackba'. so they shot him, unlike Fridays case, this time the knife-man was wounded and he was taken to the local hospital where he was charged with the attempted murder of the two policemen.

EU: Rings the Iranian FM and invites him to Strasbourg for talks

(Strasburg) So the US is in the middle of a bun fight with Iran. You know that Iran which has recently murdered 1500 of its own citizens who simply protested against fuel rises and demanded that the money the mullahs spend on funding terror groups around the world be spent at home instead) on top of that over 9000 were arrested . This is the same Iran which hangs around (that the world knows of) 300 people a year, which executes gays, which oppresses women, which has an overt ballistic missile program and is the only country to have developed Intercontinental Ballistic missiles which can range over 3000 miles, which don't carry nukes., which is where is semi clandestine nuke program comes in. The same iran which has destabilised the region with insurgencies in Bahrain, Yemen, Jordan, Gaza,and Lebanon which has semi quasi control of Lebanon and Iraq , which openly kidnaps dual citizens in which to keep the other country sweet or else face pressure from the public over how they are not offering what the Iranians want. You'd think the so called Human rights leaders of this world..The EU wouldn't touch them with a barge pole.

But it appears the EU is only too happy to appease the mad mullahs, in which to try and win trade concessions by not standing by the only country willing to stand up to Iran. It appears to the liberals at the EU, the US and not Iran is the bigger threat and  so today the EUs foreign policy chief Josep Borrell had issued a personal invitation to Zarif to visit Brussels. Yup it appears that the EU is rolling out a red carpet for a mass murderer and has made it very clear that when the European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen meets him she will discuss maintaining the Iran nuclear deal, which will entail cashing in on the Iranian fallout with the US, by selling the EUs soul and siding with Iran in return for Iran not targeting EU assets. I hope to god I am wrong, but something tells me I am not.

US: Woman fails to attend court, for stripping naked in the street and rubbing herself with a hijab she had taken off a foreign exchange student.

(Portland) Last November a 24-year-old foreign exchange student from Saudi Arabia was waiting for a train at a Portland MAX station. when 23 year old Jasmine Renee Campbell took offence at her head covering and accosted her.

Jasmine Renee Campbell,
The student managed to push her off, but not before Campbell had pulled off the girls hijab. Now this is where it gets strange, Campbell then decided to strip naked and then proceed to rub the stolen hijab all over her body but especially over her genitalia whilst disparaging the girl and her faith.

The problem for Campbell was somebody had called the police and they arrived to find her in full flow and she was arrested. When asked why? Campbell replied:
That she had targeted the student because she wanted to let the woman know that her religion shouldn’t define her.
Which begs me to ask the question, what does stripping naked in the street and pleasuring yourself with a piece of clothing you had just stolen off somebody say about you? Anyway she was indicted on two counts of second-degree bias crime, attempted strangulation, harassment and third-degree criminal mischief. She was scheduled to be arraigned Friday but as usual for a window licker failed to turn up, a warrant has been issued for her arrest. when offered her hijab back by the police, the victim refused.

US: Soleimani, was taken out after his call to attack the US embassy and take hostages was tapped

(Washington) News coming out of Israel is stating that the attack on Iran’s Quds Force, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, was sanctioned after he dropped his guard and a phone call he made to his proxies in Iraq  ordering them to attack the U.S embassy in Baghdad, as well as other American targets, with the aim of taking hostages was listening into.

4 days later Soleimi flew into Iraq from Damascus in which to oversee his minions.  landing minutes before midnight.he was taken out by Hellfire missiles fired from a Reaper UAV as his 3 car convoy hit the side road which existed the landing pad.

Iraq: US carries out second airstrike in 2 days killing several high ranking leaders of PMF

(Taji) Not letting up on their mission to decapitate the senior leadership of the Iranian assets inside Iraq, the US this evening targeted a convoy of two vehicles at around 01:30hrs local time containing several high ranking members of the Popular Mobilization forces 18 miles north of Baghdad airport in the town of Taji.

One confirmed kill is that of  Shibl Muhsin Ubayd al-Zaydi, an Iraqi national who heads the Iran-backed Iraqi militia Imam Ali Brigade. Al-Zaydi  served as a financial co-ordinator between the IRGC-QF and sectarian armed groups in Iraq and assisted in facilitating Iraqi investments on behalf of IRGC-QF commander Maj. Gen. Qassem Suleiman. (killed last night)

Shibl Muhsin Ubayd al-Zaydi (L) with the former commander of the Iranian Quds Force Qassem Suleimani.
Zaydi was responsible for "transferring large amounts of money to Lebanon to help fund Hezbullah's participation in the Syrian civil war. He also has co-ordinated the smuggling of oil into Syria on behalf of Iran, and has sent Iraqi fighters to Syria allegedly at the IRGC-QF’s request. Because of this the US treasury placed  sanctions on him in Nov 2018.

France: Knifeman wearing suicide vest shot dead after stabbing incident

(Paris) Well its Friday, as per usual somebody who celebrates today as his holyday decided to go walkabout in a Paris park today stabbing 3 people whilst wearing what looks like a suicide vest.

Not taking any chances, the police simply shot him dead. The area is currently on a police lockdown.

Iraq: Iraqis take to the streets to celebrate the death of Qassim Soleimani,

(Baghdad)  Well whilst the liberal world in the west will be wearing black armbands over the deaths of  Qassim Soleimani, a couple of Hezballah leaders and the leader of the PMF inside Iraq. The Iraqi people took to the streets on mass in which to celebrate their deaths, Kind of substantiates all those protests that Iraq has had to endure these past few weeks where the locals expressed their displeasure of Iranian influence inside the country. For some strange reason I don't think the media in the west will mention this

Iraq: US airstrike takes out Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force commander, Qasem Soleimani

(Baghdad) This evening a US airstrike near to Baghdad international airport took out Qasem Soleimani  the Iranian commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps along with  Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis the commander of Iran's proxy Popular Mobilisation Forces inside Iraq

It appears that al-Muhandis had arrived at  the airport in a convoy to pick up Soleimani  who had just landed at the airport . The airstrike occurred as soon as he descended from the plane to be greeted by al-Muhandis and his companions, killing them all.

Also on the plane with Soleimani were two senior members of Lebanon's Hezbollah who are reported to have been the main targets of the USAF drone strike They had both had arrived from Damascus via Cham Wings Flight No. 6Q501. One of them is reported to be Mohammad Al-Kothrani!
