#ISIS #ISIL #CALIPHATE
A quote from Dr. Jerry Pournelle
"The immediate objective is not to establish a democratic republic in Iraq, or even to rule Iraq; it is to eradicate the Caliphate. ISIS is a self-proclaimed mortal enemy of the West in general and the United States in particular. If they survive we will have to fight them. They will not choose to fight until they believe they are strong enough to work the Will of Allah.
Since we must fight them to the death, it were well that we do it before they are stronger.
As for Iraq, our war with the Caliphate on their territory will be a disaster, probably as bad or worse (at least for Shia) than rule by the Caliphate; but we have no choice. They are a mortal enemy and they are growing more powerful. The time to put paid to these pretenders is now.
The territory in which we will fight is no longer Iraq, and Baghdad’s writ does not run there. Baghdad cannot claim a right to rule there: they allowed it be taken by mortal enemies of the US. One reason they lost was that the Shia militia came down very hard on the Sunni inhabitants.
One alternative to maintaining the integrity of Iraq was to dismember it into at least three states: Kurdish, Sunni, and Shia. This is now de facto happening and has happened. If US troops liberate territory from the Caliphate, we can give it to whomever we wish. I suggest we give it to the inhabitants, not Baghdad.
As to the Caliphate, it has one obvious vulnerability: it asserts the right to rule, and ruling by strict Islamic Law demonstrates that right: but it must have something to rule. If it has no territory it is merely another militia movement, and its rapid growth in power ceases. War would no longer feed war. At the moment one US division with massive air support could bring this about. By next year it will take far more than that. And by 2016 it will take the full might of the US – which leaves us little to counter other enemies.
Strike now, and decisively; later it will cost more and may not be accomplish the mission.
The Caliphate must be destroyed."

Heroic citizens stopping someone from killing a large number of people don’t seem to be considered news worthy.

'Underlying all “gun control” ideology is this one belief.” “Private citizens don’t need firearms because the police will protect them from crime.” That belief is both false and dangerous for two reasons.
First, the police cannot and do not protect everyone from crime.
Second, the government and the police in most localities owe no legal duty to protect individuals from criminal attack. When it comes to deterring crime and defending against criminals, individuals are ultimately responsible for themselves and their loved ones. Depending solely on police emergency response means relying on the telephone as the only defensive tool. Too often, citizens in trouble dial 911 . . . and die.

#JadeHelm15 How on earth did the Obama administration cause so many Americans to lose faith in our government to the extent that they actually believe the president is going to declare martial law! That's the real question. Does anyone really think that American troops, sworn to defend the constitution, would disarm and confine American citizens?

How about just plain hatred of Obama and wanting to throw anything on the wall to see if it sticks? I've only seen links to RWNJ in Texas. Sorry no, I'm not buying any of that crap. Just simple tinfoil hat junk. Hoping to rile up the base and cause more distrust that really is unjustified.

WPMT Fox 43: For Elizabeth Harknett, shooting a gun isn't just practice, it's preparation. If someone were to break into her home, she'd be ready. She's been learning to shoot with her father at a range in York, Pennsylvania for the last two years. She's not alone either — the National Shooting Sports Foundation indicates the number of women going to gun ranges has jumped 60% since 2001 to more than five million.

Shameless Bloomberg-supported MDA member mother whose son murdered her husband with a pipe wrench and knife testifies for stronger gun control laws. #gunsense #guns

There is a sliding cover on my LC9s that slips up to prevent this type of malfunction. You have to click it down AND pull back the slide to remove the pin. Flip the cover up. If it doesn't stay up during carry, return the gun to Ruger. They will fix it.
Massive fail on keeping your finger on the trigger during handling.

Bringing up the danger of not closing the pin cover is an excellent idea. I'm glad you redid your video.

#jadehelm15   "When leaders within the current administration believe that major threats to the country include those who support the Constitution, are military veterans, or even 'cling to guns or religion,' patriotic Americans have reason to be concerned," Rep. Louie Gohmert wrote.

The Texas congressman is joining others in his state calling for the Pentagon to alter the Jade Helm 15 military exercises.

It's distrust brought on by the administration's own positions.
