This Week in Western Snackbar-ing Activities

So while there are threads for the super-"spectacular" events, it seems the overall posting of these things are grinding to a halt. Whether that's due to ignorance of the events themselves, or some kind of apathy from reading about these things on almost a daily occurrence I cannot say.

Personally, since a lot of this stuff is forgotten over time and there seems an almost chronic recurring condition of only viewing these things within the context of the last few months (or year at most), I feel that it would be helpful to chronicle some of the lesser known skirmishes in the ongoing civilization war perpetrated by the invaders on their western victims.

So this ~week, I'll submit those that I have heard about and did NOT see mentioned anywhere else:

However, in a rather unshocking twist of events if you google "muslim terror attacks this week" the entire damn first page of google is focusing on the man who drove his van into the muslims in London.

I'll post this here rather than start a new thread.

Another attack in France, four dead, the attacker apparently wounded and on the run. Hit a Christmas market of some kind.

Danes are saying the beheadings of the tourists may be related to ISIS.

Something I refuse to do. Have never watched one. It's exactly what those parasites want you to do.

Yeah, I read in another online community by some who have seen the worse of cartel videos that this video was the most disturbing they had ever seen. Reading the description of it was enough for me...

I don't know much about Moroccan law or their Justice system but I hope it's really fucking brutal for those asshats.

Watching this further reinforces my opinion that followers of the Wahhabi sect must be cleansed from the earth.

A part of what I do is teach high risk of isolation folks about what they are potentially facing. A long time ago I watched the Nick Berg video. It cannot be unseen.
These animals cannot be reasoned with. I always teach to never watch the videos if you haven’t already seen one.

Not sure I agree. I've watched some of them. Disturbing is putting it mildly. Horrific is a better word. On one hand, I get not wanting people to see something like that. On the other hand, I think everyone should have to see it so they can understand who and what these animals are and why they must be exterminated. In the old west, parents brought their kids to a hanging. The kids learned at a very young age that when you act like an animal the consequences are dire. I especially think those who act as apologists for this behavior should be forced to watch it. We all know that not all Muslims are like that, but that doesn't erase the fact that the root of the problem is Islam.

Maybe I'm fucked up, but there are several of these I made a point of watching prior to deploying, to get my mind right I guess.

Hard to explain, but knowing that there is information available about the shitheads we're fighting and not trying to learn from it, no matter how unpleasant, would have made me feel less prepared.

This is a very old idea. I just finished reading an account of Braddock's defeat (1755) where a British officer expressed surprise that an American militiaman would offer to kill the wounded British officer in order to spare him being burned alive slowly by the Indians who would surely shortly capture him. The British officer did not understand how warfare worked on the frontier in 1755, but the American militiaman surely did.

I believe we'll see more and more of this- glad that Canada has a good relationship with our friends in the FBI. I know nothing about the intel/analysis side of things- I wonder to what degree foreign agencies are gathering intel in Canada?

I'm cool enough with the vids. the first one, Chechens slitting a Russian's throat... that one stuck with me a few days.

the worst, most offensive one I saw was some Russians sitting on a curb. Chechens give one the finger and he walks into the grass a bit away from the road, gets on his hands and knees, a Chechin straddles him and does his throat. pure business for the Chechen. no fight whatsoever in the Russian. I couldn't understand it then, still can't.

I'm more with Sharky in that people need to get pushed out of their first world comfort to see the reality, and yeah, I watched to get my mind right before I went downrange too.

The Mexican drug gang atrocity videos are the most obscene. ISIS beheadings, burnings, being dragged to death behind a 4X4, etc are horrific enough but those Mexican narco monsters take it to another level altogether. Compared to those Mexican video atrocities an ISIS or al Qaeda beheading is positively humanitarian.

MSG Paul Howe did a video with Panteao Productions related to mindset and part of that was understanding what the enemy would do to you if captured and how maintaining the will to fight is paramount. Part of that was to show Mexican cartel members beheading two victims. The first was with a chainsaw and gory as hell. The second was with a dull knife. That was actually harder as you could hear the gurgling from the person trying to breathe. Once they fell over out of screen, you could hear the cartel fucker hacking at his neck trying to complete the job. It took a good minute or so to get it done.

And I've seen the Nick Berg video and others as well. I am a firm believer that it needs to be part of the conversation of Islam and terrorism.

But then, so does the fact that the Saudis morality police locked the doors to a girls' school allowing many to burn to death because they were not covered properly.

Or that a girl was burned to death in Bangladesh for reporting her school headmaster for making sexual advances.

That was my first vid too, still bothers me. The Jordanian pilot burning bothers me, from the perspective of duration and level of production put into the video.

I think every adult should see one, once, as long as these things happen. It can inform choices you may have to make someday, however unlikely.
