I’m starting to warm to those fanatical nutters of ISIS who are busy trying to recreate an Islamic Caliphate in the middle east. The world is becoming a more divided and hostile place every day, fanatical nutterism seems to be replacing mealy mouthed, politically correct consensus everywhere.
So if we jave to live alongside fanatical nutters I prefer them to be nutters with a sense of humour, and ISIS look to fit that niche far better than feminists, militant gays, Marxists, Tortskyites and right wing extremists like The Liberal Democrats.
Remember a few weeks ago in the lull between Putin annexing Ukraine and ISIS beginning their mach on Baghdad, headline news was all about Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram kidnapping 200 schoolgirls. Michelle Obama, attempting to gain publicity for one of her fund raising projects, posed with a rather professional looking ‘home made’ placard demanding “Bring Back Our Girls”
This seemed to tickle the ISIS press office team somewhat, maybe they saw the irony in the fact that the kidnapped girls are in no sense relation to Mrs. Obama, “our” girls, being neither family members, Americans not Christians (which the Obamas are – allegedly).
Last Friday we learned at Michy’s “heartfelt” plea (because the petulant expression shows she is very, very sincere – or maybe she was just wearing her ugly knickers again that day) had failed; “Nigeria wrapped up its inquiry into the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls by militants on Friday with little progress to show, reporting almost none had been freed after the initial kidnapping some girls escaped from.” Associated Press reported.
The Obama Administrations “smart diplomacy” came in for some cruel criticism, as it had over the debacles in Egypt, Yemen,Libya, Syria, Afghanitan, Iraq, South Sudan and everywhere else.
Up until this point in time however, mocking the administration’s imploding foreign policy and the ineptitude of the FUKUS axis was largely a pastime for American Conservative media and bloggers in Western Europe, for the simple reason that Russians were preoccupied with annexing Crimea, China was busy replacing the US Dollar as global reserve currency, Iran was busy defending Shi’ite dominated areas and the Syrian / Iraqi revolution was taking over Kurdish oil fields, or repelling US-trained and armed militants to spare time to troll the first lady.
That changed this past week when none other than the Al-Qaeda extremist spinoff which in recent weeks has overrun half of Iraq, ISIS, and which as we reported managed to “confiscate” an unknown number of US-made Black Hawk helicopters and Humvees, decided to use the same outlet, Twitter, to not only mock Michelle Obama, but US foreign policy in Iraq. It is here that Obama’s foreign policy is currently paralyzed with the president seemingly unable to decide if he will send in troops, or “Military advisors” as he eupemistically calls them, whether he will side with Iran or with Saudi Arabia, whether he will protect the Maliki cabinet that until last week had America’s blessing, or he will let Russia, China and Iran sort it out beteen themselves.
According to Al Arabiya, “the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has made a mockery of the U.S. first lady Michelle Obama through series of tweets accompanied by the hashtag: #bringbackourhumvee.”
While the world has been looking the other way, Boko Haram has been conquering Nigeria
One story that has slipped away from us recently as we have tried to bring you a fair and balanced view of the Ched Evans With Hunt, the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack, ships full of migrants abandoned in The Adriatic and the collapse of the Petrodollar amongs other catastrophe’s that have happened, are happening or are waiting to happen, has been the progress of the Boko Haram rebellion in Nigeria.
