Heheh, they were party crashers: Our Boys blitz Taliban bash
BRITISH commandos launched a devastating blitz on the Taliban – as the evil terrorists held a party to celebrate Benazir Bhutto’s murder.
The dawn raid was staged after messages were intercepted about the sick knees-up in Afghanistan’s Helmand province.
Royal Marines crept into position as the fanatics partied the night away just hours after Ms Bhutto was killed in Pakistan.
The bash was being held in ruined compounds a few hundred yards from Our Boys’ remote base in Kajaki.
Ragtag Taliban sentries tried to hit back with machine gun fire – but stood no chance against the heroes of 40 Commando’s Charlie Company.
The terrorists were pounded with mortars, rockets and heavy machine guns.
Two bloodthirsty revellers trying to creep towards Our Boys in a trench were spotted by thermal-imaging equipment – and targeted with a Javelin heat-seeking missile.
The £65,000 rocket – designed to stop Soviet tanks – locked on to their body heat and tore more than a kilometer across the desert in seconds.
Troop Sergeant Dominic Conway, 32 – who directed mortar rounds – grinned: “It must have had quite a detrimental effect on their morale.”
Sgt Conway, from Whitley Bay, Tyneside, said of the Taliban lair: “It used to be their backyard and now we’ve made it ours.”
Good on ya, mates. Keep up the great work.
Also, it is important to note this, as our British military friends hardly ever get any publicity, except when the American, British and International mass media wants to call them all a bunch of incompetent failures in southern Iraq (which, as Michael Yon pointed out, was completely NOT true).
Ignoring the incompetence of a few certain sailors in the British Royal Navy, our British military friends are doing just as kick-ass a job as the American military men and women and they deserve the recognition for a job well done.
If this guy represents the mindset of most Europeans (which, from everything I have read recently about Europe and Europeans, it is pretty accurate), then they will not put up much of a fight against the Islamofascists when they get enough immigrants in their countries and decide the time is right to take over.
I came across this blog from looking at the U.S. Army tags on WordPress [where I have my public blog]. Apparently, Europeans find it ‘unChristian’ to give a gun as a Christmas present. He also has a tough time figuring out what guns have to do with peace. Hmmm, could it be that guns in the hands of good people keep relative peace in the world against bad people who would like to end the peace? Of course, I don’t expect the Europeans to understand that concept. They apparently do not understand that the only reason they even get to have some semblance of peace in Europe is because of the sacrifice of past Americans who used guns. Of course, he also can’t understand the basic concepts from his friend’s uncle’s blog (which he calls “radical ideas” by “an American neocon right-wing military blogger”):
Basically, I guess Europeans like myself have a completely different cultural background when it comes to guns. Guns are a no-no. Belgians don’t buy or carry handguns. Most of us (liberal or conservative) feel that gun ownership the way America approaches it is just plain madness. That’s not only my personal opinion, that’s the opinion of virtually all W-Europeans.
And putting a gun in a Christmas tree [sigh]: these people must have a set of distorted believes (religious, but a gun in their tree, etc) that we cannot begin to understand.
When Belgians read the the statements on the blog of Pam her “Christmas gun” uncle:
“You will see everything from flowers to firearms depicted on this weblog”
“We support the War on Terror and believe that we must win in Iraq and Afghanistan. We believe that we must win the propaganda war”
“We believe that the ACLU and “progressive thinkers” undermine the law and endanger everyone.”
“We believe that the mainstream media regularly abuse their first amendment privilege by “engineering the news” to favor their political positions – generally to the left of clear-thinking Americans”
“We believe that global climate change is a consequence of natural forces and that humans only have a limited effect in locales inhabited by them.”
“We love sport shooting and owning firearms. You will find articles and commentary on guns here. We believe in the militia”
our first impression is one of disbelief. But when we realize that half of this great nation harbours these radical ideas, we no longer laugh at a gun in a Christmas tree.
We get the creeps and wonder what on earth happened to the land of the brave and the free.
Stacy, when you post
“what’s the big deal about giving a gun as a Christmas gift? It’s not myrhh or frankencense, but it is a loving gift – to those who choose that lifestyle. Keep CHRIST in CHRISTmas!” most European Christians feel you’re raping the concept of Christianity, along with the spirit of Christmas.
Go ahead, unwrap your “loving gift” and kill someone. Or have one of your own children accidentally kill some of your loved ones.
Handguns are made for killing. Full stop.

And there you have the European mindset. And why America will have to come to Europe’s aid in the near future when Islamofascism decides to take it over. It is already happening in Britain/UK/London, which is to Belgium’s Northwest, and in France, which is to Belgium’s Southwest. It is only a matter of time.
Europeans can continue to get “the creeps” about Americans. We’ll just go on protecting their asses and spilling our blood for their unappreciative asses. Because that is what it means to be an American in “the land of the free and [the home of] the brave.” And that is what makes America different than Europe.
Hah, yeah right. You silly infidels. Don’t you know that no Muslim nation allows any non-Muslim religions to exist equally, especially Saudi Arabia, in which it is illegal to possess a Bible?
Here is the real story, via Charles Johnson at LGF: Mega Mosque London 2012
Here’s a good video report on the enormous 17-acre “Mega Mosque“ project planned to open during the 2012 Olympics in London, acting as a forward base for the Al Qaeda-linked Islamist group Tablighi Jamaat.
Oh and guess who is supporting this Mega Mosque? Muslims’ favorite dhimmi mayor of London, “Red Ken” Livingstone.
And if that were not enough, the Muslims are already seething and whining and bitching and moaning about the Olympics happening during their so-called holy month of Ramadan: 10/15/06 08:41 AM: Muslims Seething About Olympics
UK, Britain, London? You have a BIG problem. And it has only been growing while you ignore it with your heads in the sand.
It is only a matter of time before the UK, Britain and London are Islamic. No one there is standing up to the radical Muslim groups who are hell-bent on making Europe Islamic. They do not call it “Londonistan” for nothing.
Here is the description from the YouTube posting:
London Mega Mosque at the 2012 Olympic Site.
A massive mosque that will hold 40,000 worshippers is being proposed beside the Olympic complex in London to be opened in time for the 2012 Games.
The project’s backers hope the mosque and its surrounding buildings would hold a total of 70,000 people, only 10,000 fewer than the Olympic stadium.
Its futuristic design features wind turbines instead of the traditional minarets, while a translucent latticed roof would replace the domes seen on most mosques. The complex is designed to become the “Muslim quarter” for the Games, acting as a hub for Islamic competitors and spectators.
“It will be something never seen before in this country. It is a mosque for the future as part of the British landscape,” said Abdul Khalique, a senior member of Tablighi Jamaat, a worldwide Islamic missionary group that is proposing the mosque as its new UK headquarters.
Tablighi Jamaat has come under scrutiny from western security agencies since 9/11. Two years ago, according to The New York Times, a senior FBI anti-terrorism official claimed it was a recruiting ground for Al-Qaeda. British police investigated a report that Mohammad Sidique Khan, leader of the July 7 London bombers, had attended its present headquarters in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire. In August, Bavaria expelled three members of the organisation on the grounds that it promoted Islamic extremism.
The more the Brits bend over and grab the ankles to every demand by Muslim groups in Britain/UK/London, the more the Muslim terrorists decide to attack them and make Britain/UK/London ruled by Islamic law. If people do not wake up, it is just a matter of time before Britain/UK/London and the rest of Europe fall to Islam.
Oh yeah, and keep in mind while reading this that liberals/leftists/progressives/Democrats/Democrat-voters only care to criticize President Bush, Christians, Conservatives and the U.S. Military. They have no criticism for Muslims, Islam or Islamic terrorists. They also say that these warnings about terrorist attacks are simply scare-tactics by the government to gin up support of a failed war effort. The same people who said we failed to connect the dots, now cry foul when we are connecting the dots of the Islamic worldwide jihad. But hey! They “support the troops”! And we shouldn’t dare question their patriotism! Uh huh.

The word’s come down from AQ management to its blue collars in Britain: start cutting off heads.
Islamic terror cells in Britain have been instructed to carry out a series of kidnappings and beheadings of the kind allegedly planned by the nine terrorist suspects arrested in Birmingham last week.
The “strategic” assassination instruction was issued by Al-Qaeda’s leaders in Pakistan and Iraq to dozens of their followers in this country. It was uncovered by MI5 last autumn, senior security sources say…
The revelation explains the recent deployment of a permanent SAS unit to London. The unit has been placed on 24-hour standby to respond to a terrorist attack in the capital.
SAS is Britain’s special forces. And it’s not just beheadings for which they’re on standby:
The intelligence services fear that Britain could be subject to a Beslan-style siege, with multiple hostages forced to plead for their lives on camera.
Whitehall sources have said that the threat is considered so credible that MI5, the police and the SAS have conducted at least two mock counter-terrorism exercises to work out how to deal with such an eventuality.
The last exercise, shortly before Christmas, took place at an RAF base near Chester. Five police forces were involved in an operation that envisaged an international conference being stormed by terrorists, who then held a group of children hostage in a creche wired with explosives.
The Times of London has new details about the alleged cell that was pinched earlier this week; apparently the cops moved in after one of the suspects was spotted buying a video camera. More than one of them has been linked to a mosque in Birmingham which, by the admission of one of its own officials, is a center for Tablighi Jamaat — a group linked to two of the London bombers and regarded by western intel as a “conveyor belt to Al Qaeda.” Can you guess which group is spearheading the drive to build that mega-mosque in the east end that would seat up to 70,000 Muslims? Oh hells yeah.
All in all, says the Telegraph, MI5 has disrupted 12 separate terrorist plots in the past year and a half — twice as many as was previously thought before, for an average of one every six weeks. Total arrests made in the heretofore undisclosed plots: zero.
The Telegraph’s also got tasty heart-ache fodder tonight in a story about the Joint Support Group, a team of British military superspies that cut its teeth turning IRA agents into British informants in ulster and is now busy reprogramming jihadis in Baghdad. I’m a wee bit suspicious that we’re only first hearing about them now, as Blair considers withdrawing part of the country’s forces from Basra, but it’s a good read even if it’s not technically, you know, true.
Working alongside the Special Air Service and the American Delta Force as part of the Baghdad-based counter-terrorist unit known as Task Force Black, they have supplied intelligence that has saved hundreds of lives and resulted in some of the most notable successes against the myriad terror groups fighting in Iraq. Only last week, intelligence from the JSG is understood to have led to a series of successful operations against Sunni militia groups in southern Baghdad…
The killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq up until his death in June last year, followed intelligence obtained by the JSG, as did the rescue of the kidnapped peace campaigner, Norman Kember…
Candidates who get through pre-selection then spend the next four months at the Intelligence Corps headquarters at Chicksands, Bedfordshire, being taught driving and close-quarter battle skills – operators must be capable of using a wide variety of weapons but must be expert shots with a pistol…
With so many Iraqis entering the zone every day, those who want to pass on information can do so with a certain amount of anonymity. But a risk still remains. All potential agents are warned that anyone suspected of being a coalition spy will be tortured before being murdered. If he is married, his wife will be gang-raped in front of their children, who will in all probability also be murdered, they are told.
Sixty years ago, there’d already have been a movie made about them with Laurence Olivier in the starring role.
Exit question: What’ll destroy the UK first — terrorism, bird flu, Iranian nukes, or those dreadful melting glaciers?
