Islamic State militants drove 600 Shia, Christian, and Yazidi male prisoners into the middle of the desert, lined them up along the edge of a ravine, and executed them at point blank range, according to a report by Human Rights Watch released Thursday.
The inmates, taken from a local prison, were forced to count themselves as they lined up before members of the jihadist militant group opened fire on them with machine guns.
Human Rights Watch says it spoke to nine survivors of the massacre. They told the organization they made it out alive by rolling into the ravine and pretending to be dead, or were shielded by the bodies of other prisoners who fell on top of them.
We have riots in San Francisco because the Giants won the World series. http://rt.com/usa/200987-san-francisco-world-series-riots/ All this over a baseball game. Lawlessness anyone?
People in the USA are decorating their houses with ghosts and goblins and getting ready for Samhain, or Holloween. I hate this holiday more and more each year. Think about it, people are glorifying demons, the occult and the ring leader himself, The Fallen One.
The Ebola scare is still on, but so far only one American has died from the disease. http://www.buzzfeed.com/justinezwiebel/heres-how-many-people-have-died-from-ebola-so-far
However the media, for the most part is hyping Ebola while remaining, in some news-outlets, silent about the massacres taking place at regular intervals in Iraq.
At the onset of WWII German storm troopers pushed east and massacres took place in many villages, as people were rounded up and shot. I would suggest the same spirit of death has taken over the region of Iraq and Syria, and is manifesting itself in the from of ISIL. The groups rampage continues unabated.
As I have stated several times here, I believe Baghdad will fall and when it does what happens to the oil? Will we have gas lines again. just in time for the Holidays?
Iraq was the sixth largest net exporter of petroleum liquids in the world in 2012, with the majority of its oil exports going to the United States and to refineries in Asia.
Radicals Moslems who are embracing Jihad and the setting up of a Caliphate in Iraq are racing to joint the ranks of ISIL. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/oct/30/foreign-jihadist-iraq-syria-unprecedented-un-isis
The world sits by while thousands of people are being slaughtered and hundreds of thousands of people are being driven from their homes and displaced. ISIL is targeting Christians and forcing them to either convert, leave, or die. http://www.state.gov/j/drl/rls/rm/2014/231483.htm
In closing todays post. I’ve had several posts insisting I’m getting it wrong about Ebola, however the stats don’t lie, and in my opinion we are witnessing a classic wag-the-dog maneuver. The place to watch is the Middle East, especially Iraq. When Baghdad falls, as I believe it will, it will be a game changer in the region. While the bread and circus people in the USA continue to party and soil their own “litter box” after their team wins the “big game,” there is a disaster looming in another part of the world and it will affect them at some point as ISIL continues it’s killing unabated.
