Is this typical for a Muslim Brotherhood government? They spend $3.5 billion to render half their air and missile defense assets useless.(and it's the good half)

Erdogen is being fucked by Europe, not letting them in to the EU.
Imagen 70 million muslims would have free acsess to all of Europe. To me it looks like its Erdogens revenge to the west. He just dresses as a western person but he is 100% a radical muslim. Turkeys economy is great, I think they can pay for it and if not China will forgive them anyway. Fuck Erdogen. He tried to be the Muslim King of the world the Egyptians told himt to go and multiply himself. As the cookie crumbles in the Middle East anything goes.....

Why Islam creates monsters

The cultural and psychological cocktail of anger, low self-esteem, victim mentality, a willingness to be blindly guided by outer authorities, and an aggressive and discriminatory view toward non-Muslims, forced upon Muslims through pain, intimidation and mind-numbing repetitions of the Quran's almost countless verses promoting hate and violence against non-Muslims, is the reason why Islam creates monsters.

Hamas, Islamic Jihad call for a third intifada

The first and second intifadas featured "Palestinian" jihadis murdering Israeli civilians and then celebrating their murders. The third would be more of this. "Hamas, Islamic Jihad call for a third intifada," by Khaled Abu Toameh in the Jerusalem Post, September 26:

On the eve of PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s speech at the UN General Assembly, a number of Palestinian groups called for launching a third intifada against Israel.
The calls were issued in protest against visits by Jewish groups to the Temple Mount.

The groups called on Palestinians to take to the streets following Friday prayers to express their “solidarity with the Aksa Mosque in the face of Israeli aggression.”

Hamas’s armed wing, Izaddin Kassam, also threatened to resume suicide bombings against Israel.

Abu Obaida, spokesman for the group, told reporters in the Gaza Strip that Hamas has not abandoned the option of suicide bombings.

“We’re ready to teach the occupation a lesson in case it launches an attacks against the Gaza Strip,” he said.

Abu Obaida called on Palestinians to wage a third intifada against Israel in response to Israeli efforts to “judaize Jerusalem.”

He accused Israel of exploiting the current “futile” peace talks with the PA to “liquidate the Palestinian cause and create new facts on the ground.”

Islamic Jihad leader Ahmed al-Mudallal also urged Palestinians to wage a new intifada against Israel.

“A new intifada should erupt against the Zionist enemy and we believe that our people have the will and ability to liberate Palestine from the river to the sea,” he said during a rally in the Gaza Strip.

Accusing Israel of working to replace the Aksa Mosque with a Jewish temple, the Islamic Jihad leader called on the Palestinian Authority to pull out of the peace talks.

“The enemy is using these talks to pursue its crimes against the Aksa Mosque,” he charged....

I guess he's sure now he'll never make it to the EU if he's turned his back on his NATO connections like this. His choice of new hardware is incompatible with those countries he most wants to be like.

I used to at one time but not any more. I used to think firing their entire cadre of joint chiefs was extreme but certainly within the PM's purview, but after the Mavi Marmara incident I started paying particular attention to his internal manipulation of their "democracy". After the second time he did it it was clear he was only interested in making sure their military was unable to protect the secular nature of their government via coup d'etat. The protests in and about Gezi park are less about tearing down the trees and developing the space as it is about the gradual but accelerating loss of their core democratic values. He rails against Assad and the Syrian war but it is a diversion to cover his insidious destruction of Ataturk's legacy.

Syria's problems will pale by comparison when the Turkish people reach the end of their tolerance for Erdogan's heavy-handed style. The majority in Turkey may be Muslim but that isn't how they define themselves. For the rank and file, freedom of the press, freedom of expression, freedom of assembly are non-negotiable and the government's encroachment on Turkey's secularism will most likely lead to it's downfall.

I hope it comes in the not too far future. Visited twice as a tourist in Turkey and I must say that most of them not just look like Europeans but act like one too. Nice easy going people nothing radical muslim about them, the women dressed nice as in any European country. Thats what erDOGen can not stand. His mission is to take back Turkey to the first century. I think sooner or later he will go the way of Qaddafi etc etc. He is a very sneaky and dangerous man. Allah achbar, kill him, make him go to that 72 year old arab bitch down in mussie hell. Amen.

The Mayor of London was very worried about a plague of pigeons in the City Centre.

He could not remove the pigeons from the city.



All of London was full of pigeon poop, the people of London could not walk on the pavements, or drive on the roads.

It was costing a fortune to keep the streets and pavements clean.



One day a man came to the Town Hall and offered the Mayor a proposition.



'I can rid your beautiful city of its plague of pigeons without any cost to the city.



But, you must promise not to ask me any questions.



Or, you can pay me one million pounds to ask one question.



The mayor considered the offer briefly and accepted the free proposition.



The next day the man climbed to the top of Nelson's Column, opened his coat, and released a blue pigeon.



The blue pigeon circled in the air and flew up into the bright blue London sky.



All the pigeons in London saw the blue pigeon and gathered up in the air behind the bird.



The London pigeons followed the blue pigeon as she flew eastwards out of the city.





The next day the blue pigeon returned completely alone to the man on top of Nelson's Column.



The Mayor was very impressed.



He felt the man and the blue pigeon had performed a wonderful miraculous service to rid London of the plague of pigeons.



Even though the man with the pigeon had charged nothing, the mayor presented him with a cheque for 1 million pounds and told the man that, indeed, he did have a question to ask and even though they had agreed to no fee and the man had rid the city of pigeons, he decided to pay the 1 million just to get to ask

ONE question.



The man accepted the money and told the mayor to ask his ONE question.



The mayor asked:



Do you have a blue Muslim ??

HO! The Quote of the Decade:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that,'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."

~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006 (Verified at truthorfiction.com )

Pass it on 'til eternity...(...It was so nice of him to give us this great quote for posterity!)
SO, USE IT, NO MATTER WHAT IS YOUR FAVORED PARTY! Words can come back to haunt us!

I've been finding out lately that what I thought was optimism was actually naïveté and that what I wished for and what can actually happen are often worlds apart. When you finally see the inner spirit of someone you trusted and considered a friend, and that person is revealed as someone who intends to harm you you have no choice but to kick him loose. That situation is complicated by the fact that for 80 million Turks, their tormentor-in-chief still has 2 years of his term left.

Just jumping in here with nothing to say about Heir-Doe-Gun. But, what's with the phone call to Iran's new CEO? They are having fun with that. A political masterpiece, according to those scumbags. Are we that clever or that stupid? Is it Uzi's claim that our POTUS is truly a Islamic at heart and is trying to do a drive by like that Italian cruise ship that nailed the rocks? I smell cluster-fuck.

I'd bet the torrents for any and/or all of those shows will be available in various resolutions by tomorrow at the latest.

Do I still need to Google them or can I just follow the excellent link you provided? I'm a little suspicious of a hot dog company that thinks they produce sliders and not rollers. Faux pas? Between the steamers and the rollers I think we've identified the source of your Eau de Clusterfcuk.

Breaking Bad was a masterpiece. A predictable yet satisfying ending.

I remember watching 6 or 7 episodes of Homeland, then it became too ridiculous for my taste (a US marine who becomes Al-Qaeda LOLWTF?). Apparently that Jewish guy with the CIA was also a double agent or some sh*t.

Boardwalk is a Sopranos wannabe, but it's still good.

You said the word; naivete. The USA full of clueless naive people when it comes to world affairs. 47 MILLION on food stamps?????
Even when one busniness closed down and we were let go instead of running to the unemployment office and food stamps I ran to look for another job and found one. Where are those real Americans???
God Bless America. Too bad America is fucked up real good with a clueless muslim leader whose only wish is to totally destroy America. No matter what he says to his unemployed food stamps hordes he is here to destroy the USA.
