This blends in to my earlier comment on another thread. ALL of North Africa is coming unglued and that will end we Infidels playing by Cricket Rules. ALL pale face nations will be forced to play by *pick-up Football rules* (…w/o helmets an shoulder pads!!!!!…)
A high risk? If Iran goes nuclear, we will all go nuclear. In a long war that will change everything we used to view as permanent civilizations…..
Radical Islam Jihad will attempt (…again…) to kill or convert all of us. And, our responses can not be conventional. (…It will be The River War with jets, missiles and drones…and Churchill is still dead…)

And none of the Euro nations has anything to logistically support much more than a battalion in such remote places.
Request for the hated Americans’ help in 5…4…3…2…
Great timing for the sequestration hit on the military eh? Especially with our efforts already spreading troops and assets thin around the globe, and lots of equipment 20+ years old and tired from war, squeezed maintenance budgets and closed production lines.
OTOH, Commander Benghazi’s open support of the Muzzie Brotherhood and therefore al Qaeda, and his botching of so many relationships with erstwhile allies might result in his disinvitation to play. I’ll betcha if we could follow the bread crumbs, we’d find his fingerprints on some of the ‘insurgents’ weapons, esp. MANPADS.
Clinton had one thing right over the years: calling Commander Benghazi Uhbama THE AMATEUR.
Osama is dead, GM is alive and creating jobs in China, and Dear Leader’s prime concern is banning certain bits of metal to Save The Children destroying the Bill of Rights and ignoring the Constitution.
Sufficient words of loathing escape me at the moment.

Yeah, Claire …
“Islamist extremist” from the NYT is strange, innit?
Reckon one of the editors has a townhouse in Paris or sumpthin’.

If I have my financial conspiracy theories straight, France wants gold, not gas. Well, they want gas too.
