Ignorance seems to be your strongest attribute. By the way there have been more than two bombs. You are clueless so perhaps you should go to the home cooking network.

An Egyptian court on Saturday dissolved the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the political wing of the banned Muslim Brotherhood, dealing a crippling blow in the campaign to crush Egypt's oldest Islamist movement.

A court banned the Muslim Brotherhood itself in September, but that ruling did not mention its political wing, leaving open the possibility it could be allowed to run in parliamentary elections, due late this year.

Saturday's supreme administrative court ruling excludes the Brotherhood from formal participation in electoral politics, potentially forcing the movement underground, particularly as it has lost the sympathy of large swathes of the public.

The court's ruling called for the FJP to be dissolved and its assets seized by the state. Its decision is final and cannot be appealed, a judicial source said.

Once again you more than prove just how stupid yo really are. Their chief form of transportanion is old pick up trucks with guns mounted on the back of them, anyone pying any attention is aware of that. They have been successful in capturing some military vehicles from the Iraqis, but now with our air support they are worthless. Everytime ISIS is shown on TV all of our networks, also Al Jazerra and Chinese networks also all you see is lines of those idiots on the back of pick up trucks, you are as stupid as crazy Ray [Donavan} with the same degree of cluelessness. along with the bagger attitude of hopelessness.."Oh woe is me" pathetic cretins.

The reported deaths of 40 children from minority groups who were displaced from Sinjar city and district by armed violence are of extreme concern.
According to official reports received by UNICEF, these children from the Yazidi minority died as a direct consequence of violence, displacement and dehydration over the past two days.
Families who fled the area are in immediate need of urgent assistance, including up to 25,000 children who are now stranded in mountains surrounding Sinjar and are in dire need of humanitarian aid including drinking water and sanitation services.
Sinjar, a district of Ninewa in northwest Iraq with a population of at least 150,000 children - including many who are internally displaced - was taken over by the Islamic State (formerly known as ISIS) on Sunday

Children suffer in war. Are you advocating that the US get directly involved in every civil war? How many children died because Bush invaded Iraq? How many have died in drone strikes. How many have died in Africa due to war?

How many would die if we were not to accept the children crossing our borders? You were very happy to refuse those children our help.

Isis fighters trap thousands of Iraqis up a mountain and they're dying of thirst
Stranded on a barren mountaintop, thousands of minority Iraqis are faced with a bleak choice: descend and risk slaughter at the hands of the encircled Sunni extremists or remain where they are and risk dying of thirst.
Humanitarian agencies have estimated that between 10,000 and 40,000 civilians remain trapped on Mount Sinjar since being driven out of surrounding villages and the town of Sinjar on Sunday.
But the mountain that had looked like a refuge is becoming a graveyard for their children.

The pot-us can't comment or act upon the behavior of the Muslim Extremists, and the reason occurred to me when I was invited to the Renascence Faire.
The ELITE Liberal Class need 'serfs', pointed out and identified, by smell, maybe.
I made a joke that I would 'love' to go if I get to kill something.
The chain-mail suited one did not laugh.
Obviously the 15th century is different to different people.

That war along with the aftermath is and will always be Bush-Cheney's mistake and blunder along with all of the lies that they perpetrated. The 4, 500 American lives that they sacrificed, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of others. Iraq was ten times better off under Saddam, and so were we. All of you idiots that still defend and protect Bush Cheney laugh in the face of the fallen, and you are all a disgrace to the American flag along with our military. Just calling you a lowlife doesn't come near doing you justice.
Since Obama's Cairo speech, dozens of countries have had to deal with upheaval,death and destruction, and we have lost several leaders around the globe who have been allied to the United States. Part of the reason the middle east is so unstable is that Obama botched the withdrawal. Obama is this minute at his news conference blaming every one but himself. Obama was the 'one' that refused to properly negotiate a SOFA,because of his arrogance ill conceived notion of how world affairs effect his agenda.

Hopefully one of these days you will be able to figure out the true meaning of global warming, before it kills you of course. Soo you are smarter than 97% of the scientist in the world? Idiots like you were the origin of the saying..."Don't confuse me with the facts my mind is made up".
You are confused,97% of scientists are not signed on to man made global warming. The number that have attached their name to that 'political' lie is closer to 11% and that is only because they are the ones receiving government grants or over compensation.

What you don't understand is evil prevails when good men do nothing. Obama did nothing and wanted to please his base by getting out of Iraq as soon as possible against all advise from generals on the ground on the U.S. side and the Iraqi side.
It was more important for Obama to say "I got us out of Iraq" on the campaign trail than to protect our interests there. He bragged about the stabilization of Iraq a few years ago while calling it a "dumb war" when it was politically correct.
He compared ISIS to a JV team a few months ago. A junior varsity team!
How can it be any more clear to you pacifists who think you're immune from this evil? Thinking that after 9/11 borders on insanity.
You people can NEVER get your facts right.

Yes, Obama kept his campaign promise by ending the war -- but he didn't have much of a choice. The troops weren't withdrawn because the U.S. wanted them out. They left because the Iraqi government refused to let them stay.

OCT 21 2011:

"The White House -- anxious about growing Iranian influence and Iraq's continuing political and security challenges -- publicly and privately tried to sell the Iraqis on a troop extension."

"Obama's speech at the White House was less a dramatic surprise than simple confirmation of what had long been expected by observers of the moribund talks between the administration and the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, which believes its own security forces are more than up to the task of protecting the country from terror attacks originating within its borders or foreign incursions from neighboring countries."

Waxman was right about IS weapons. They captured tanks, self propelled artillery, everything but air power.
That is where we can bleed them badly. They have no air defense.
Rumor is that they confiscated dozens or hundreds of Stinger type weapons. They are especially dangerous because they are hand held,hard to spot, and extremely mobile.

What about the children in Gaza? The Israelis justified it saying that Hamas used them as human shields. What a load
