The chances of a coup are slim in Iran now as Pres. Obama did nothing during a real attempted revolt a few years ago.
Ramadan is such a pleasant time for families and suicide belts!
According to Islam a Muslim MUST make a pilgrimage (Haj) to Mecca once in his/her lifetime BUT...if they can't then they can kill themselves as long as they take infidels with them. This is the next best thing to making the Haj ESPECIALLY during Ramadan.
That is why we see an upswing in their killing. Ramadan is such a nice time for all of us.
Who is Reality Leigh Winner going to “stand with” if her beloved Iranian government goes to war with a Sunni Muslim state? What to do, what to do, and how can Trump be blamed?
Evan Kohlmann, a national security analyst, said: Its a derogatory term and not something people should use even if you dislike them.
I'm all for insulting ISIS at every turn! Call the bastards what they are!
Arabic translator Alice Guthrie said: They hear it, quite rightly, as a challenge to their legitimacy: a dismissal of their aspirations to define Islamic practice, to be a state for all Muslims and crucially as a refusal to acknowledge and address them as such.
Well, isn't their "legitimacy" being challenged? Are we at war with the bastards or what?
General Patton called the Nazi's what they were and he differentiated them from the German people by referring to them as "the Huns." It was a very specific term used to call out the Nazi's, SS and the German army and differentiate them from the German people. It was effective.
I say we adopt Daesh in referencing ISIS. General Patton surely would've.
Oil is down 4 1/2 percent today so far.
You’re comparing Patton to 21st century politically correct British dweebs.

Looks like 2 attacks and quiet a few killed and casualties.
In the 1930,'s, the Shah who was a great admirer of Hitler, changed Persia's name to Iran to indicate that the people of Persia were Aryans, not Arabs.

Iran under attack: What to expect

Earlier today, gunmen attacked the Iranian Parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Khomeini in Tehran, Iran, killing at least 12 people and wounding many others.
Don’t be deceived by the relatively low casualty figures — this attack is a big deal. The Iranian Parliament is Iran’s valued pretense to Islamic democracy. And Khomeini is the father of the Iranian revolution. He made Iran what it is today. This is was a strike at the heart of the Shia-rooted Islamic Republic.
A familiar organization appears to be responsible. The Islamic State has published videos online which show its operatives running around the Parliament, so its claim to responsibility appears genuine. The nature of the assault also lends credibility to ISIS responsibility. After all, ISIS detests Shiites as heretics, specifically the sect’s veneration of martyrs and religious leaders. They believe that visual homage to these individuals is an affront to Allah’s singular glory. And this action serves two further purposes for ISIS.
Persians regard Arabs as uncivilized barbarians.
“Economically, Islam is just a primitive form of socialism, with the favored ones in a position to use the capital generated for their personal benefit”
In other words, fascism. Imagine that.
“Maybe a “Concert?”
Do you think the Iranians understand that Love is the Answer?
Iran’s Guards says Saudi Arabia behind deadly attacks in Tehran: Statement

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards say Saudi Arabia was behind twin attacks in Tehran on Wednesday that killed at least 12 people and injured 43, a statement published by the Guards said.
“This terrorist attack happened only a week after the meeting between the U.S. president (Donald Trump) and the (Saudi) backward leaders who support terrorists. The fact that Islamic State has claimed responsibility proves that they were involved in the brutal attack,” said the statement, published by Iranian media.
The attacks were the first claimed by the hardline Sunni Muslim militant group in the tightly controlled Shi’ite Muslim Iran.
crazy days ......
Wow...this is huge news. First off that we even hear about it second that this happen in Iran.
“...Iranian Parliament is under fire with a gunman shooting guards,...”
Well, THERE’S a good start...
Always fun to watch them turn on themselves.
Wait for it, though... they’ll be blaming Israel in about 24 hours. And our press will have the gunman as Bibi...
They’ll blame Trump, too. If only he were less hostile to these Satanic terrorists...
Whatever we can do to foment internal discord and have them waste each other, we should be doing it.
The rest of the world is safer when they’re too busy killing each other over the latest rage-du-jure.
Sort of like liberals, here.
Except the cancer of Mohammadanism is almost all over the globe, and where they are, terrorism is.
As a tagline around here says: Know Muslims, No Peace. No Muslims, Know Peace.
Yeah, time for the human waste to experience what they dish out!! Thank you God.
