Five terrifying consequences should Baghdad fall to ISIS

Link here. The analysis is precise, honest, and educated. It is also beyond worrisome, especially with the childish, shallow-minded and politically-correct crowd we are presently stuck with in the White House.

All five points are frightening, but the worst might be #3, as it will likely lead to many more horrific beheadings of Americans.

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

 
Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

 
The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

 
He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

    And the mainstream media will pretend like nothing happened and king Obama will be left blameless to the bonfire he set in the middle east while leading from behind with his screwed up foreign policy and his screwed up policy wonks.

    At this point I no longer care what happens to Muslims in the Middle East.

    They are their own worst enemy.

    As long as they leave me and mine alone and stay inside their own sandbox then good for them.

    But set one toe outside of that sandbox and harm me or my friends and I am willing to bring all of hell down on their heads. Every single one of them. No mercy or quarter.
    The Rock will be removed from the face of the Earth to start.

    Allah and their false religion will not save them.
    The archangel Gabriel did not bring the word of God to Mohamed on the rock. It was Satan in disguise.

    Total and absolute war has its place and time.
