Y'know, all winter Faith talked about the cabin fever and snow blindness and general pain in her finely crafted tush it was to live in Michigan in the winter time. Well here we are, almost fully a week into the Atlantic hurricane season and I'm sitting under the first named storm of the season. At least snow doesn't soak your groceries as you carry them in from the car.
DAMN YOU AL GORE!
Andrea!!! Only a tropical storm. Suck it up, Cry Baby.

Another thing. How do you know about her finely crafted tush? I'm hearing that it qualifies for a commercial license plate.

Which Muslim are you listening to?

I'll have you know I've crossed the Gulf Stream in an 18' boat with worse weather. It just sucks that the cruising season is effectively over in the Caribbean until December.

Not listening to Muslims. Just reading about them. How about this? Could it be because its very difficult to stuff a tumbleweed into bikini without a blowtorch? The very fact that they bowed under pressure from a vocal minority is amazing. But, where its at should be a lesson. WTF is a sarong?

No biggie, it just rained (a lot). The only significant thing about this storm is it's timing...first week of the season is somewhat ominous when you consider the forecast. Still, I wouldn't trade places with a Syrian even if we were talking Powerball money.

He wants the easy way. Be a "good" UN member. Have troops on the Israeli border. Spy on Israel from 10 feet away. No way Jose, I hope. Bibi cant be that stupid. The last time Russian advisors were on the Golan right on the Israeli border they just fled leaving behind maps and info about attacking Israel. No thanks.

Good morning Europe and the whole stupid world!!!

Danish Defence Intelligence:'Greatest threat to the West' is European jihad-tourists returning from Syria to 'carry out attack'
This confirms what thinking people have known for many months, but few state authorities admit: that Western Muslims travelling to Syria to learn jihad are returning to the West in order to carry out attacks. Berlingske - FE: Westerners are the primary threat

The greatest threat to the West from al-Qaeda's involvement in Syria is Westerners who have links to the militant network and return home with bad intentions, estimates The Danish Defence Intelligence Service.
The Defence Intelligence Service (FE) is closely monitoring the civil war in Syria and its influence on Denmark's security.

This is the conclusion in a new report from the FE that gives an insight into FE's assessments and general work in 2011 and 2012.

"The primary threat to the West from al-Qaeda's involvement in Syria is Westerners who get weapons training, combat experience and contact with the militant network and then travel back to the West to carry out attacks," says the report.

No shit.

Sure sure , the problem is Israel.....

Iraq: Sunni jihad-martyrdom suicide bomber murders nine Shi'ite pilgrims on bus
But remember: the real problem is "Islamophobia." Sunni/Shi'ite Jihad Update: "Iraq bomber hits Iranian pilgrims, at least nine dead," from Reuters, June 7
BAGHDAD (Reuters)- A suicide bomber rammed his car into a bus carrying Iranian Shi'ite Muslim pilgrims in Iraq on Friday, killing at least nine people in an attack likely carried out by Sunni Muslim insurgents trying to ignite sectarian conflict.
Al Qaeda's local wing and other Sunni insurgents have been on the offensive since the start of the year in an attempt - spurred in part by the mainly Sunni rebellion in neighboring Syria - to provoke the kind of Shi'ite-Sunni bloodshed that killed thousands in Iraq in 2006-2007.

Police said that in Friday's attack in Muqdadiya, 80 km northeast of Baghdad, the bomber targeted a convoy of three buses carrying Iranian pilgrims, who often visit Iraq's Shi'ite shrines in the south of the country. At least nine people were killed and 27 wounded, according to police.

"When the buses passed, a white car driving very fast came out of an alley way and hit the second bus, and I saw that bus burst into flames," said Ahmed Ferhan, an Iraqi man injured in the blasts.

An official with Iran's Hajj and Pilgrimage Organization told the semi-official Fars news agency that based on preliminary information, 16 Iranians had been killed and 44 wounded in the attack....

But of course , Israel is the problem in the Middle East....

Saudi's Grand Mufti calls for jihad against Hizballah
This escalating Sunni-Shi'ite conflict over Syria could put a serious crimp in the jihad against the West. "Saudi's Grand Mufti calls for jihad against Hezbollah," from Al Bawaba, June 7:

Saudi Arabia’s Grand Mufti Abdul Aziz al-Asheikh hailed on Thursday senior Muslim cleric Sheikh Youssef al-Qaradawi’s stance against Iran and Hezbollah, Al Arabiya television reported.
Sheikh Qaradawi, president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, criticized last Saturday the Lebanese Shiite militia group for its military intervention in Syria and called for Jihad against it.

Qaradawi, a Sunni cleric, said in a speech in the Qatari capital Doha that “every Muslim trained to fight and capable of doing that [must] make himself available” for Jihad against Assad and Hezbollah in Syria, AFP quoted him as saying.

“Iran is pushing forward arms and men, so why do we stand idle?” he asked, describing Hezbollah, which means the party of God in Arabic, as the “party of Satan.”

“The leader of the party of the Satan comes to fight the Sunnis... Now we know what the Iranians want... They want continued massacres to kill Sunnis,” Qaradawi said.

“How could 100 million Shiites [worldwide] defeat 1.7 billion [Sunnis]? Only because [Sunni] Muslims are weak.”

Sheikh Qaradawi said he was mistaken in his previous support of Hezbollah and Iran, in front of Saudi clerics.

“I defended the so-called Nasrallah and his party, the party of tyranny... in front of clerics in Saudi Arabia,” he said.

“It seems that the clerics of Saudi Arabia were more mature than me,” Qaradawi added, according to AFP.

He doesn't give a shit about being a good UN member. I guess in all the excitement about Syria, someone forgot to remind Putin that the Med is a NATO lake. He got a bye when we thought his ships might be needed to evacuate Russian personnel but Assad refuses to give up the ghost.

Transferring ships from multiple fleets is looking a lot more like a permanent assignment and that's unacceptable.

Unacceptable? To who? Iran, China and the Russians will go wherever they want and they won't ask for a permission slip. In fact, they make it a point to challenge NATO. What's NATO going to do? Yell and scream and stomp their tiny little feet in protest? Maybe buzz them with some stealth bombers? I can see them trembling in their lockstep jack-boots. NATO, much like the UN is getting long in the tooth and lacks testosterone to serve up some serious objections. Except in the news. That's where Putin is getting his stones. Are you watching re-runs from the 80's?

Kerry should be getting sidetracked with this issue since that is where we traditionally (we as in us, the US) drew the line. We wouldn't let them breath there in the 70's and kept them under our boot when they were this all-powerful Soviet Union. It would be a shame not to recognize the opportunism for what it is. By recognize I mean assign another carrier battle group to the area with instructions to closely monitor the Russian ships and dedicate some full-time satellite oversight to make sure we know when the S300s arrive. A no-fly zone may become a reality and those things are game changers.
