Mid-Week Post

Your middle-of-the-week joy...

What is happening in Syria now:

Turkey says arming Syrian Kurds is unacceptable. Well. You know what’s unacceptable from everyone else’s point of view? Telling the rest of the world that we all have to suffer the plague of ISIS because an independent Syrian Kurdistan is inconvenient to Turkey.

Syria's President Bashar al-Assad has visited Moscow on his first overseas trip since the civil war broke out in his country in 2011.

During the surprise visit, he had talks with President Vladimir Putin.

Russia launched air strikes in Syria last month against the so-called Islamic State (IS) and other militant groups battling Mr Assad's forces.

Mr Assad said Russia's involvement had stopped "terrorism" becoming "more widespread and harmful" in Syria.

(Sidebar: Putin wants a pipeline. Carry on.)


A Yazidi community member has shared a gruesome story where one mother captured by the Islamic State terror group was told she ate the meat of her own toddler. The Yazidis have been speaking out about the atrocities they continue suffer at the hands of IS, and have criticized President Obama for not doing enough to help them.

Vian Dakhil spoke with Politico on Wednesday and explained that as many as 2,200 Yazidi women and girls have been kidnapped by IS and are being used a sex slaves. Another 420,000 Yazidis are living in refugee camps, which includes thousands of orphans who have no home.

Dakhil shared one particularly horrifying story, where IS fighters forced a starving mother to eat the meat of her own child, or at least told her so.

Yesterday, Prime Minster-Elect Justin Trudeau Sock Puppet promised his equally worthless counterpart, President Obama, that Canada would withdraw from the mission against ISIS:

Justin Trudeau's first-day foray into international relations included informing the U.S. president that he'll carry out his campaign promise to withdraw from Canada's combat mission in the Middle East.

The same man-child who called prioritising Syrian Christians as refugees "disgusting", who refused to call female genital mutilation "barbaric", who thought that parkas were sufficient aid for soon-to-be raped and repeatedly raped girls and women and sighed explanations of how "root causes" were needed before anyone decried the blowing up of an eight year-old boy has now made the Kurds the only line of defense against sexual violence against Yazidi and Christian women.

Liberal voters want this. They voted for it.

Also: the root cause of "root causes" from a substitute drama teacher:

Between 1998 and 2001, Trudeau taught at West Point Grey Academy, an elite private school. After West Point Grey, according to Global News, he moved on to the Vancouver School Board to be a ”teacher-on-call.” ...

But, the poster said, 9/11 stood out because of Trudeau’s response to what was happening.
“What I remember most about him was was the day 9/11 occurred. Whereas ever other teacher continued their lesson as if nothing happened, he told us he wasn't going to teach French. Instead, he wanted to talk about the global ramifications from that event and had an open discussion as to how we thought and felt about the whole situation. He also reminded us not judge a group based on the actions of a few extremists.”

Isn't he special?! Aren't his analysing skills so super-awesome and stuff? A substitute drama teacher evaluated the events of September 11th as they unfolded! Isn't that great?!

Prime Minster-Elect Sock Puppet is expected to screw up reading written words at a ceremony honouring the late Patrice Vincent and Nathan Cirillo, two armed services personnel who were killed by Islamist terrorists last year.

On November 4th, he will name his cabinet. Expect dilettantes and shills.

In other news, Clock Boy plans on moving to Qatar which funds ISIS and exploits North Korean slave labour:

A 14-year-old Muslim boy who was arrested after a homemade clock he brought to school was mistaken for a possible bomb will be moving with his family to the Middle East so he can attend school there, his family said Tuesday.

Ahmed Mohamed's family released a statement saying they had accepted a foundation's offer to pay for his high school and college in Doha, Qatar. He recently visited the country as part of a whirlwind month that included a Monday stop at the White House and an appearance Tuesday at the U.S. Capitol.

"We are going to move to a place where my kids can study and learn, and all of them being accepted by that country," Ahmed's father, Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed, told The Dallas Morning News before boarding an airplane from Washington back home to Texas on Tuesday.

(Sidebar: the word for a black person in Arab countries is "abed" meaning "slave". That is how Clock Boy will be accepted. Carry on.)

It's not all doom and gloom.

Ten facts about "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown":


One of the most poignant moments of any Peanuts cartoon comes when downtrodden Charlie Brown opens his Halloween goodie sack and discovers he’s been given rocks instead of candy. According to Schulz, this so angered viewers that for years his California office was inundated with sacks of treats addressed to the character.

Pope Leo and his elephant:

Hanno arrived in Rome just before he was scheduled to appear before the Pope. And in his first official appearance, he made an equally dramatic impression. Walking through the streets of Rome adorned with handsome vestment and with a silver tower on his back, Hanno dropped to his dropped to his knees and bowed his head low upon reaching the Pope, before lifting back up to trumpet three times in the air. Then he sucked water into his trunk and sprayed water down on everyone assembled—including the Pope, who thought the whole of the elephant's performance delightful.
