Meanwhile In Afghanistan

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Yesterday it was US embassies in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, Sudan, Lebanon, India, Balgadesh, Indonesia, and others that were besieged and/or attacked. Today, we finally add Afghanistan to the "and others" list. From the LA Times: "Rioters infuriated by an anti-Islam video clashed with police in the Afghan capital on Monday, setting cars and tires ablaze and chanting anti-American slogans. Police blocked off the traffic circle closest to the U.S. Embassy and other diplomatic missions, and most Westerners working in Kabul were ordered by their organizations to try to stay out of public view. Monday’s unrest broke out when about 1,000 people gathered near an American base on the capital’s eastern edge and began marching toward the city. Police fired shots into the air to try to disperse the crowd, but the protesters continued to surge forward." In other words, just another American appreciation day.

As the clip below shows, protesters were burning US flags and posters of the US president, chanting "Death to America! Death to Obama!"

Some more video coverage of the latest breakout of anti-American sentiment:

All of these anti-American protests around the globe say something about the upcoming election here.  I wouldn't be surprised if Russia annexes the Mediterranean by Halloween. 

Meanwhile, on the golf course...

The protests spark is a psy op by romney/netanjahu to discredit obama and the deescalating and friendlier parts of his foreign policy.

Theres also an imperialist war side on obamas FP which is rediculous and americans should be ashamed for allowing it, but romney and netanjahu want exactly to step that filthy imperial side of american FP UP.

Wow, "Death to Obama". That's a big change from his election day, when brown people around the world around the world were rejoicing. I wonder what he did in the meantime to piss them all off? Oh nevermind.

Anyone who thinks this is all about some movie is badly mistaken. That's just the trigger point.

"They hate us for our freedoms". No they don't. They hate us for our jackboot on their necks, for our storm troopers in their villages, and for our bombs raining down on their houses.

Retarded. So let me see if I have your position right... Anti-Americanism is a psy-op because we are becoming too nice under Obama, but we are escalating the war mongering imperialism, so the anti-Americanism could be justified, not just abroad, but at home as well, except it's a psy-op.

Amazing how tortured one's logic can become when trying to view everything through the R vs. D paradigm.

Turkey is doing things very strangely.  Poison, car and direct killing like Los Narco's do.  The list of bodies showing up is strange.  Lawyer, couple of business men, IT people.  No politico's yet.  Probably killing all the support staff to tie the political hands.

There are others happening right now but they are small, no zerg attacks.  Yet.  Something very nasty is coming and disucssing it with other anons, TPTB are in panic mode.  So expect something very stupid to happen.

I think we'd all be doing a lot worse if the shoe was on the other foot. Let's see, US troops photgraphing themselves pissing on the corpses of the dead, wedding parties full of women and children bombed for 11yrs, American mercs like Jonathan Idema famous for running torture houses and boiling his prisoners alive (Then later pardoned by Karzai and allowed to go home), and about ten thousand other horrific crap that lit the news for a few days over the years. You don't have to be a raving religious nut to drive such an invasion out of your 3rd world shithole I reckon. 

The Afghan mission was flawed from the start when it was deemed a punitive exercise by the US. It's no good explaining to the most vengeful bunch of lunatics on a psychological par with Sicilians that the same people who have murdered their kids are now their friends with a different agenda. NATO should never have gotten involved with the lunatics across the pond.

So, to summarize for the Islamically-impaired: hundreds of thousands of Muslims across Asia and the ME are rioting and murdering because a stupid video depicted Mohammed (dare I speak his name) as, among other behaviors, a murderer?
