… Israel should Go for the Jugular [#Hamas]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,January 5th,2017

.. PM Bibi & Co made a serious mistake …

.. it is Hamas ‘ goal to humiliate Israel . Eventually , Hamas wants to destroy Israel , and murder every single Israeli . Get it …

.. [h/t — Debka.com]..
.. [link] to the intel report …

.. The Israelis need to go after Hamas , root and branch . Quit pussyfooting around . Go in and get them . Destroy them and their command structure …

.. End the war on your terms , not on theirs . Deliver the coup de grace , and pound them into dust ….

… Bibi is Clearing the Decks for Action [#National Gov’t]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,December 20th,2016

.. if his intel report is right , and it usually is , Bibi is getting ready for battle ..

.. yes , it does make his coalition government stronger . He would lose about 5 to 6 seats , yes . But with Labour in coalition , he would gain about 18 seats , thus having about 76 seats in government . Also , the parties that he might lose will likely support him any on most votes [within reason]…

.. [link] to the intelligence report …

.. if / when Netanyahu makes the go decision to attack Iran [because he is forced to] , he will likely add even more parties to his coalition in order to form a war cabinet . So he is in a more secure position …

… The Iran Nuclear ” Agreement ” is … [#worse]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 17th,2016

.. worse than appeasement ..

.. it is effective surrender and pandering to the mullahs in Qum ..

.. do the ObamaCraps really want a nuclear arms race in the Middle East ? Well , that is exactly what is going to happen ..

.. [h/t — DebkaFiles.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report ..

.. and there may even be a major war in the Middle East because of it …

.. do you all really think that the Israelis are just going to stand by and take this ? … I don’t think so …

… Gee , If the ObamaCrap are Willing to Do This [#border security][#middle east]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 12th,2016

.. why not do it much closer to home , say , on our southern border ..

.. the ObamaCraps are proposing to do this border strategy [#4000k of border fencing and security] as part of a comprehensive strategy for combating I.S.I.L. …. yes , for combating I.S.I.L. …

.. yet , these bastards refuse to do it along our southern border …

… If the ObamaCraps are willing to Supply these Electronic Features to Egypt [#and other Nations][#surveillance][#technology]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 9th,2016

.. according to this intel report , the ObamaCraps are considering [and are likely to supply] the support of Egypt , Tunisia , and Israel with border control technology . It is not exactly cheap , either . The intel estimate is around $100 million to $500 million . My guess is that it is going to cost about 10 to 20 times that amount , or about $8 billion to $10 billion …

.. You had better believe that this request is going to go to Congress . It is an important appropriation . You are taking about some serious scratch , well above these countries ‘ annual aid request , espc. Egypt ‘ s . Tunisia right now barely gets anything at all . Also , the ObamaCraps like to play games with the aid that goes to Israel in order to swend a political message to Bib . So doing this means they are likely to put that aside [for once] for the greater good of battling ISIL ..

.. [h/t — DebkaFiles.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report ..

.. Israel can help fund this on its own . Egypt can help , but even it needs help . The Tunisians need a ton of help .. Also , all three countries are seafaring nations , so that also has to be considered , as well ..

.. at least these dummies are considering getting off their butts for once . No , they are not considering sending US troops , at least not yet . But they are at least will to send some US personnel in order to train these folks in order to help themselves . That is , for once , at least , a big switch …

.. you can bet the Hill [Congress] is going to have questions . Lots of them . Including ones about our own southern border …

… Not a Bad Idea [#electronic fence][#ISIL]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,November 30th,2016

.. this hopefully should help with protecting the country ‘ s borders …

.. Egypt can wipe its own fannie . All they need is the technology and the training . They do not need our people to man them ..

.. [h/t — DebkaFiles.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report …

.. whether it will help or not is open to question . It needs to be part of a comprehensive strategy to protect Egypt . Egypt needs to develop lightning quick response forces [air and ground] to respond to the threat …

… Hizbullah and Iran are Playing a Dangerous Game [#intelligence]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,November 16th,2016

.. recently , it was revealed that hizbullah was penetrated — and at a very high level . iran and Hizbullah really have to wonder , what is the continuing cost of this strategic blunder …

.. both of these parties got caught trying to sneak missiles and flunkies into the Golan . Israel had made it clear [through diplomatic channels] that to do so would meet with severe and immediate reprisal …

.. [h/t — Debka.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report ..

.. well , they did , and Israel struck back . Israel struck and hit a gold mine , killing 12 key operatives …

.. the big problem is that the Middle East is always at a ” hair trigger . ” You never quite know what may well set off a new Middle East conflict , or even a regional war …

… The U.S. is in More Trouble than it Thinks [#Gaza Strip]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,November 13th,2016

.. it is even to the point that Egypt and Israel are working together , and with Hamas . Yes , it is that bad ..

.. basically , Hamas was far more weakened over the summer offensive with Israel than it is [was] letting on . It has lost hundreds , maybe a few thousand fighters to war death and destruction , along with assassination . It still has its rocket stocks , though . At least while it still has them …

.. [h/t — DebkaFiles.com]…
.. [link] to the intelligence report …

.. it seems that I.S.I.L. has been finding many of Hamas ‘ rocket stocks . They haven’t been letting them go to waste , though . A considerable number , no doubt , have been diverted to the war in Syria . Others have been relocated and put into storage . There are now others which have been fired at Israel , or have been positioned at Israel from I.S.I.L. territory in Syria . So they are not being wasted ..

.. what is scary for the U.S. is both the increasing threat TO Israel and the increasing spread of I.S.I.L. ‘ s influence .  It is a situation that calls  for the full attention of the United States and all of it allies , no matter where they are located . It is something that cannot be put off any longer …

… What Happens Next in Syria ?? [#I.S.I.L.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,October 31st,2016

.. it is a good question ..

.. I.S.I.L. and the Syrian rebels are co – operating against the Syrian Government . The Syrian rebels are now [finally] getting substantial help from the U.S. , Saudi Arabia , and Turkey . So Bashar El – Assad ‘ s junta is beginning to totter , and is coming close to falling apart ..

.. the Syrian rebels just want to free Syria . They have since the beginning . However , I.S.I.L. ‘ s goals are far more sinister . They want to increase their nascent caliphate , and take over more land and fertile ground . They also want to go after more slaves under their control …

.. [h/t — DebkaFiles.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report ..

.. so , what is the U.S. doing ? Not much , other than aiding the Syrian rebels . The problem is who wins , and what happens when they win . I.S.I.L. is far more likely to control Syria than the rebels , and then that will allow them to turn on the rebles and crush them ..

… Be Careful What You Wish For [#Syria][#Russia]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 19th,2016

.. you might actually get it , and then some ..

.. it appears that Bashar el Assad and his minions will survive in Syria . People have been wishing for it for years . Now it appears to be happening — just not by the forces that the ObamaCraps wanted to have it happen ..

.. the forces that are moving to have it happen now are I.S.I.L. — and not the Syrian rebel alliance . The alliance is effectively dead , having been dealt with by the Syrian Government , I.S.I.L. , and by the Al – Nusra – front …

.. [h/t — DebkaFiles.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report ..

.. Now the three other parties are having it out , now that the remnants of the Iraqi Army have been effectively destroyed . The Kurdish Peshmerga have exhausted themselves , and will need to be pulled back in order to protect their ancestral lands . That they can do , but they cannot do more without effective support from outside parties . The question is who ?? …

… Egypt and the ObamaCraps [#survival]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 31st,2016

.. the ObamaCraps can cause trouble , but only so much . Their own situation is much the same , financially , to Israel ‘ s …

.. Egypt receives multiple types of aid from the U.S. . Also , most of Congress [both parties , to be honest] are in Egypt corner . however , the Obamacraps are not . Which leaves them vulnerable to being subtly blackmailed by the ObamaCraps …

.. [h/t — Debka.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report ..

.. right now , it is a matter of survival . Russia is only of limited help . Russia has only a small navy . Their Air force and army are also of limited effect . They are more of a symbolic value to any country that wants them . The Gulf States would be of far larger assistance …

.. The Gulf States [Saudi Arabia and Kuwait , in particular] can replace U.S. aid , if needed . They may not want to , though . They recognize that Egypt is doing their dirty work , and is stabilizing their western frontier . It is in their interest to help Cairo …

… POTUS bears a Great Deal of Responsibility [#Syria tragedy]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 9th,2016

.. why , do you ask ?? ..

.. lack of action ..

.. the situation calls for action . Obama has not provided it . Even with I.S.I.L. , where the air campaign calls for kicking their ass with a doozy of a bombing campaign , His Lordship does it … drip , drip , drip …

.. cowardice ..

.. POTUS is afraid to act …

.. [h/t — DebkaFiles.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post // intelligence report …

.. bad actors actions ..

.. you name it , they do it … Russia , I.S.I.L. , iRAN . POTUS ‘ failure to take action has had severe consequences . He does not , and they do …

.. most of all , the Syrians pay the price ..

.. from 300k to 500k dead ..
.. another 300k to 750k missing [possibily dead]..
.. more than half the nation ‘ s population displaced , or fled …

… POTUS bears Personal Responsibility for I.S.I.L. [#judgement]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,August 6th,2016

.. you may ask , why ? ..

.. failure of follow – on force [Iraq] ..

.. it would have been a stabilizing force in Iraq , even if the #s are small . The force would make the Administration to pay attention and remain involved ..

.. Syria ..

.. the failure of POTUS to enforce his so – called ” red line ” has had severe consequences . The first , plus this , created a giant power vacuum in the Sunni areas of Iraq . It was one that what became I.S.I.L. was glad to fill ..

.. [h/t — DebkaFiles.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report …

.. ideology ..

.. POTUS ‘ slavish attention to his ideology has blinded him to others ‘ advice , and to those other suggestions … doing so puts him either in denial , or into a dream state [called fantasyland]…

… Congress must intervene in the Iran Sanctions process [#oversight]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,May 11th,2016

.. given the ObamaCraps actions regarding Iran , Congress should and must intervene …

.. the large mass of the sanctions are statutory . Congress enacted them , and POTUS has no lawful right to waive them . it is Congress ‘ position to defend its turf , and it needs to do so …

.. [h/t — DebkaFiles.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report …

.. Congress must act , whether POTUS likes it or not . At a minimum , Congress should and must pass a new sanctions bill . It would be one that would give the body the power to review any final deal on sanctions with Iran . Yes , POTUS will veto it , but that does not matter . Congress must step in and override his veto …

.. that is only a starting point . The overall sanctions regime must be reviewed , and then must be tightened . Iran must be educated and made to understand that the United States cannot and will not back down …

… You Know that POTUS has a Problem [#a Coalition]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,April 25th,2016

.. when the Brits are not in on it …

.. the British are very willing to help us here in ” the colonies . ” They always have been . However , they have been pissed on by the ObamaCraps time and again …

.. [h/t — DebkaFiles.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report …

.. so , normally the Brits would jump at the chance to help us here in the U.S. . However , they cannot and do not trust His Lordship any further than they can reach him , much less throw him . Guess why ??? …

… How Low Can it Go ? [#US influence in Israel]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,February 29th,2016

.. you would think that we would have considerable influence with an ally ..

.. not in Israel ..

.. POTUS and SecState have so thoroughly pissed off the Israeli body politic (even the left) that they are on the outside looking in . Even their so – called ” orders ” to stop shipping arms to Israel are countermanded …

.. [h/t — Debka.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report …

.. there will be a lot of repair work to do once the ObamaCraps are gone . They have done a considerable amount of damage to our relations with Israel . A GOP president (preferably a conservative one) would help a lot …

… People Wonder [#POTUS v Bibi]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,February 12th,2016

.. why the split between Obama and Netanyahu …

.. part of it is ideological . Benjamin Netanyahu is a confirmed conservative . He believes in the free market , and has had considerable success in freeing up Israeli business markets and labour markets . Barack Obama is a socialist . Obama does not believe in the free market . He believes in government control and direction . well ? …

.. [h/t — Debka.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report …

.. another is upbringing . Netanyahu ‘ s upbringing is pure private sector , after his obligatory service in the I.D.F. . Obama ‘ s is pure public sector , having been a community organizer [communist agitator] , as well as a so – called constitutional law professor …

.. the last is Obama ‘ s background . A great deal of Obama ‘ s background was influenced by his father ‘ s and grandfather ‘ s background in Indonesia and Kenya . It made POTUS have a bitter hatred of the colonialist antics of Britain [both cases] . it also applies to Israel , to a point . Israel ‘ s former occupation of the West Bank and Hamastan helps to colour his opinion of Israel and its actions against the Palestinians . Hopefully , this gives one a better background of this …

… Allowing parts of the Patriot Act to Expire [#metadata]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 18th,2015

.. is a real bad idea ..

.. is the newly named ” USA Freedom ” Act any better ? I am not sure . But leaving the country unprotected is a really stupid idea ..

.. I will support and endorse a Republican in the primaries . But Rand Paul will not be one of them . His behaviour on this issue and in this debate have been horrible . His fundraising off of his actions has been abominable …

.. [h/t — DebkaFiles.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence files …

.. so , might the USA Freedom Act be any better ? It might be . I think that , for once , that there is a genuine bipartisan consensus on both sides of the Hill in order to reform the Patroit Act . The reform could be better , but this solution just might be good enough ..

.. but Rand Paul ‘ s conduct is not .

… Iran really wants to Pick a Fight [#Israel]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 25th,2015

.. if they do , then they have a death wish ..

.. Israel ‘ s Mossad [and its military eqs] are superb . They will know the locations of every battery , position , missile , and man , to a tee ..

.. [h/t — DebkaFles.com]…
.. [link] to the intelligence report ..

.. when it comes time to give the go order , these positions will be taken out in enfilade , no matter what . The Israelis do not go in for civilian casualties , unlike the Iranians . They will hit civilian areas , no doubt .. But it will be done only because there are legit military targets at those locations ..

.. the upcoming war between the West [including both Israel and the NA.T.O. nations] will be nasty , bloody & will take time . I doubt that it will become World War III , though . Neither the Russians or the Chinese have a death wish , and thus want to get their butt kicked …
