Transferring ships from multiple fleets is looking a lot more like a permanent assignment and that's unacceptable.
Of course the Russian dictator does not give a shit about the UN. But please note , I said a "good" UN member. He just needs that Syrian port to park his war ships in the Med.

<quoted text>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.

Never happens. I don't play cards, craps, roulette, Keno, etc. Too much thinking. If I can play the myriad of new video slots all day and it only cost me a C note, I'm happy. These new games patterned after Elvis, Sex in the City, The Hangover, Ghost Busters, etc. have amazing screen video clips and screen touch options to help you lose your money. But, when you hook a $100 Marlin during an 8 seat gigantic screen fishing contest, you can't help but chub up. There's a lot of multi player games that give you a sense of competition, but the real winner is the Casino. I don't care. 8 hours playing time, with $1 drinks, comp lunch at Paneras, for 2, cost us 2 C's today. That's TRD's bar bill for one day on his cruises.

If I could drink that much in a day I'd get a beverage package. No, when I splurge for drinks it's usually to use up the on board credit our travel agent tacks on to prove she loves us.

No No No. At $8 per drink, all day, that's only 12 drinks. Now, 4 for breakfast, 4 for lunch and 4 for dinner, plus 6 watching the wet tee shirt contest tells me that a C note is a good deal. And, another 4 judging the belly flop contest. Don't BS a BS'r.

I spent the last cruise with a craft beer aficionado and the ship had just modified one of the lounges to hold close to 70 artisan brews. There was a Belgian for $49/bottle and some $20 beers but I managed to make my carry-on wine last two weeks with a new beer or two each day. At the risk of resembling Euroscum I admit I like the Belgian ales at ambient temperature.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest that the bullet was manufactured in a democratic country. Therefore, this is just an instance of democracy in action.

I still think it's disturbing to see these guys break the party line. Shiites would normally be hugging their Hezbollah neighbors but I guess they've been tainted through contact with Alawites.

Looks like Putin is good for something.

Russia detains 300 Muslims at prayer room in crackdown on jihadis and Islamic supremacists
"It is the third time this year such a raid has been ordered, targeting Muslim places of worship." Why do they target Muslim places of worship? Is it because they are racist, bigoted Islamophobes, or because they have very good reason to believe that violence and subversion are being plotted inside those places of worship?

"300 Muslims detained at prayer room following crackdown by Putin," by Jessica Chasmar for the Washington Times, June 9 (thanks to Darcy):

Russian authorities detained 300 Muslims, including 170 foreigners, on Friday after President Vladimir Putin ordered a crackdown on radical Islamists ahead of next year’s Winter Olympics, Fox News reported.
The Muslims were held at a prayer room in Moscow, and Islamist literature was confiscated, police said, according to Radio Free Europe.

It is the third time this year such a raid has been ordered, targeting Muslim places of worship, Reuters reported.

Mr. Putin told a meeting of security force officers on Friday that the “fight against corruption, crime and the insurgency has to be carried out harshly and consistently.”

He said “the situation in the North Caucasus should be kept under particular control,” Radio Free Europe reported.

The French will be French

Paris museum opens exhibit of "Palestinian" jihad mass murderers
Suicide of Europe. "Paris museum opens exhibit of Palestinian 'martyrs,'" from the Jerusalem Post, June 8 (thanks to Golem):

A Paris museum subsidized by the French government opened an exhibition of photos of Palestinian suicide bombers, which the museum calls freedom fighters.
The exhibition of 68 photos entitled “Death” by Ahlam Shibli opened on May 28 at the Jeu de Paume museum of contemporary art in Paris.

The museum’s website describes suicide bombers as “those who lost their lives fighting against the occupation,” and the exhibition as being about “the efforts of Palestinian society to preserve their presence.”

According to CRIF, the umbrella body of French Jewish communities, the people commemorated in the photos are “mostly from the [Fatah-affiliated] al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades [of Hamas] and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.” All three are designated by the European Union as terrorist groups.

One of the photos is of Osama Buchkar, a PFLP operative who killed three people and wounded 59 in a terrorist attack he carried out at an open market in Netanya on May 19, 2002. The caption to his picture says he “committed a martyr mission in Netanya.”

In a letter Wednesday to France’s Culture and Communications Minister, Aurélie Filipetti, CRIF President Roger Cukierman said that it was “particularly lamentable and unacceptable that such a display should justify terrorism from the heart of Paris.

Yep.

Taliban fighters beheaded two boys aged 10 and 16 as a warning to villagers not to cooperate with the Afghan government, local officials said.

In July last year in the same district, a 16-year-old boy accused by the Taliban of spying for the government was beheaded and skinned.

The next month, a girl aged six and a boy of 12 were kidnapped and beheaded in separate incidents in Kandahar and the east of the country.
