US-Israeli-Egyptian mobile sensor-fence projects to block further #ISIS Mid East expansion

A US mobile surveillance sensor tower This is not a good sign.  Not that the Americans are doing this but that it is being done at all.

#ISIS forces capture big Libyan oil field

Once again the “Commander in Chief” ignores the fact on the ground.  How soon will it be that the revenue from these oil fields fuel the coffers of ISIS?  How soon will it be that the “caliphate” incorporates what used to be Libya, Sinai, and southern Egypt? Oil prices are already going up because of …

After joining #IS, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis expands in Egypt – Al-Monitor: the Pulse of the Middle East

Obama’s Foreign Policy Speech Was Appeasement BS

What a joke!  Except that its not funny. Obama will not act unless someone else is there with us.  Now…if that someone asks for our help, and it is not in our interest to do so, will we act?  I suspect that Obama will.  What he did in Libya is a case in point. Obama …
