WW4/Middle East Files: Russian DM Shoigu says Rostov-on-Don submarine deployed to Syrian coast, fired unspecified number of 3M-54 Kalibr (“Club”) land-attack cruise missiles at ISIS targets: “[The missiles] targeted two major terrorist positions in the territory of Raqqa. We can say with absolute confidence that significant damage has been inflicted upon ammunition warehouses and a mine production plant, as well as the oil infrastructure”; NATO dubs Improved Kilo-class (Project 636) diesel-electric sub “black hole” for super-silent capability, Rostov-on-Don launched in Jan. 2015, commissioned by Black Sea Fleet; Shoigu also reports on punishing air campaign against anti-Assad rebels, entering 10th week: “In the past three days, the operation involved Tu-22[M3, “Backfire”] planes as well as warplanes from the Khmeimim airbase [near Assad stronghold of Latakia]. In total we [Russian Air Force] carried out 300 sorties and hit 600 various targets”; Soviet/Russian military setting historical precedents in Syrian civil war, i.e., first-ever use of ship-launched cruise missiles in warfare (from Caspian Flotilla), first-ever deployment of Tu-160, Tu-95 strategic bombers in overseas combat, first-ever use of LACMs in warfare

Just another day for theologically consistent Muslims . . . You would have thought September 11, 2001 would have been a wake-up call to Americans on the dangers of Islam, a bloody religion of conquest since the 7th century. But no, a large portion of the American electorate chose a crypto-Muslim to lead them, while the US and Canadian governments continue to admit people of this “faith” into North America’s security perimeter. Real bright or maybe it is God’s judgment on a wicked society (i.e., ours).

It’s only the beginning folks . . . don’t expect the authorities to protect you and your family. All public venues in North America are wide-open targets for jihad: military bases and other government facilities, airports, shopping malls, restaurants, places of worship, sporting events, movie theaters (i.e., Star Wars 7 premiere on December 18), etc.

Merry Christmas!?
