Aired on the Doomstead Diner on July 2, 2014
Discuss this Rant at the Geopolitics Table inside the Diner
…In the short time since I recorded the Iraq Jokers & Clowns Rant, a NEW PLAYER has emerged here, ISIS, aka the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. They got a few other names for this both in English and Arabic, including calling Syria the “Levant”, and by no means are these guys limiting themselves to just this territory, they recnetly declared a Caliphate, a kind of Muslim state ruled over by an Islamic Caliph, apparently one Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who I don’t think anybody here in the West besides some NSA researchers ever heard of before, but who now is the biggest thing in Terrorism since Osama-bin-Laden. Gotta love this guy has Baghdad in his name though, that is positively CINEMATIC!
They haven’t limited themselves to pulling Caliphates out of the geopolitical history books here either in terms of drawing on old metaphors. They are doing Crucifictions too to strike TERROR into the heart of the average Christian over here, not to mention every Shiite Muslim and everybody they perceive as having been a tool of NATO imperialism. Our good friends the Sheiks running the House of Saud over in Saudi Arabia are now likely leaving large skid marks on their underwear…
For the rest, LISTEN TO THE RANT!!!
