  1. So one more 'Mo'hammered Kaboomie' got dead…and WHAT OF IT? What's changed?

    ( These 'dramatic executions' mean nothing more than 'entertain the brutes'…it's all a farce 'full of sound and fury…signifying nothing' )

  2. Why it looks like the American troops got hit by missile attack! I don’t get the video. and why no smoke in early morning after the blast?

  3. Assad might know a thing or two about US/Saudi funded terrorist groups. He was reported saying:

    All in all, it’s unlikely that death of the IS leader – if he really was killed – and even the ultimate destruction of the terrorist group would change anything….The root of the problem – the Wahhabi ideology that is “more than two centuries old” would not disappear at once. The radical Islamist thought and al-Baghdadi were merely US tools all along….those tools could easily be re-purposed elsewhere.
