Thank you for passing Jerseygirl's message on. No air traffic at all noticed in this neck of the woods.
HOW DO *YOU* RATE SO HIGH!
What's your secret????
Pretty high praise, imho, from
The world famous,
the FREEPER EXTRAORDINAIRE,
THE TM MOTHER SUPERIOR . . .
THE ONE AND ONLY
I applaud you Jill, for doing the right thing. I've been following the same sites, and most seem to be preoccupied with sensational headlines and subscribers instead of saving lives. They make huge claims and gain subscribers, then sit back and forget what they started out to do in the first place.
Perhaps if they had ever witnessed a large scale terror attack firsthand, they would take a different approach, but I fear some people just exploit situations for their own personal gain and dont care a whit about others while their wallets get fat. In short, they make me sick with their arrogant pre-sumptions about knowing the terrorist mind.
They used to be called war profiteers. I have a different name for them, but I wont print it here.
Between the military and law enforcement, I have been fighting these terrorists, and a few others, since 1978. I wont post a resume, but I can guarantee I generally know what I am talking about from experience, not from a book. I've been personally exposed to them in the Phillipines, Scotland/Ireland, and the Middle East. I am a law enforcement veteran of the OKC Bombing.
The others need to wake up and smell the coffee, Jill, as well as a few federal agencies we all know and love. Terrorists generally hand us defeat because of our arrogance, and they need to realize the fact earnest humility can go a long way towards winning this war.
/rant off...and thanks for what you do.
Just so it's useful to someone!
I certainly agree with all your points.
EOM seems bent on capitalizing on the Khobar situation for propaganda purposes, and threatening similar types of attacks forthcoming in the US.
However, I give EOM as much creedence as I give a street-corner crack salesman. He's just a modern Lord Haw Haw using the internet for psyops.
Good post Piper.
Cause I adore JP and she has a huge heart. I think we all adore JP! She is the Princess Overseer of this thread really. She keeps everyone involved and active in TM.
By the way, Quix. I was thinking of you yesterday afternoon as I sat in the oral surgeon's chair waiting for the novacaine to kick in. As it did, I started feeling giddy, don't know why because it was not sweet air, just the novacaine needles. I guess I was so excited to be finally taking care of a problem tooth and that caused the giddiness. Anyway, I was laying almost completely prone and feeling lightheaded while I waited for the doc to come back in the room, when all of a sudden I started thinking of the exclamation, "Whee!" I repeated it a few times silently, smiling, and thinking of your many posts here that ended with that exclamation!
Haven't had any time to read today and still don't. Just came on to see if the hostages were freed!
See you all tomorrow!
OH WHEEEEEEE! LOL!
As to dentists . . . am still praying . . . God said he'd fix or provide money to fix my teeth. Now several are chiped, pieces broken off etc. . . . so . . . that's another
OH WHEEEEEE area of my life!
Was standing next to a fellow in the sound booth once during a visiting evangelist's service. This particular evangelist--don't remember his name--was known for God healing people's teeth during his ministry.
He said, he personally did NOT know why God didn't often just give people new teeth. He didn't know why some got gold and some silver and some porcelin. I think he did say once that someone had a gold tooth substance analyzed and it was very special, somehow.
Anyway--he just said that God was going to be moving through the auditorium where people were. No line up front or anything. And that if you felt a sudden warmth or heat in your mouth, to go to the bathroom and see what God had done.
Well, this fellow next to me in the sound booth suddenly felt a warmth in his mouth. He didn't even know he needed a filling. He went to the bathroom and there was a bright new filling where there hadn't been at the beginning of the service.
God didn't do anything miraculous for the mess in my mouth then or since!
Ah well. He's The Boss.
Thanks for your encouaging, fun note!
I don't remember who the "chit-chat" girl is on FR; but I did run into a "chit-chat" girl on one of the Islamic forums and she was right up front...all she wanted to do was "chit-chat."
By golly I sure got a grin out of that.
Frankly, I do not think it is possible to rule anything in or out. That is why I give the government a pass on the recent alert retraction to certain cities. I really feel that by the time they know for absolutely certain that an attack is near happening, the attack will be by then way too late to stop. They will and do fare better if they can stop the attack before it is fully planned; but if they miss during that stage, then how can they stop it in progress unless it is a special situation like with Richard Reid on the plane? I think it is just the nature of the beast.
The Feds were successful in getting Ray Padilla out of the terrorist picture, but because they caught him before he actually set off a dirty bomb, the darn liberals were able to whine and say that it was all hogwash. Honestly, if we listen to the libs, a mushroom cloud will have to be visible in the air before someone could be detained for planning a nuke attack.
No. Mr. Reynalds didn't write that.
NO ONE WOULD WRITE THAT ABOUT THE FBI JP.
Great story. Thank you for your service!
You're welcome. I had been out running errands and evidentally just missed her call. I wish I had been here to take it personally. All we can do is wonder what the heck is going on out there. We'll never hear the whys and wherefores. We need to thank JerseyGirl for reporting it to us, otherwise we'd never have known.
YES, I can see her as a Princess Overseer.
However, I also think she functions as quite a bit of a Mother Superior or at least a Queen.
She can kick arse and take names with the best of them! LOL.
And she's certainly nurturing, protective, assertive and fiercely productive and helpful to the thread and all the faithful on it. Guess I'm saying I see her as a lot more of a heavy duty trooper than my image of a Princess. Perhaps a Queen Esther sort of person. Though I think of her as more assertive even than that! LOL.
Anyway--I may be getting ridiculous and should go to bed.
When I first met my step-sisters after my dad's new marriage, I was down visiting their house in Phoenix. And my step-sister was in high school while I was at college at NAU in Flagstaff.
My step-sister was a ruthless, relentless, almost abusive tease. Finally after a couple of hours of such, I started to fight back or at least take up for myself. After getting only one or two good retorts thrown back at her, she said:
"[Quixbird], You're getting ridiculous, you'd better go to bed."
She wasn't about to tollerate a fraction of what she dished out! LOL.
So it became a kind of family idiom.
Anyway--I probably am getting ridiculous and I probably should go to bed!
Separatists decapitate old villager (Thailand)
Dead Briton dragged through streets after Saudi attack: reports(Saudi terrorist attack)
Since we haven't anteed-up, we are basically SOL unless we have someone like Jill who provides critical information to ALL of us. We need to be thankful and supportive of Jill as she shares the information that provides us with the hatred, motivation and plans of our enemy. Together with Cindy's posts, and the hard work of many other FReepers, we have a forum for analysis that serves our purposes on this Thread immensely well.
Honest to goodness shaking Gal, what is that?
k ;) It's all good
Hey I ain't no stinkin' baiter Mrs Crockett, I be LOLa nice kitty....MeoooooooowRoarrrrrrrr
Where did you get that info on the Kittyhawk?
You can bow later...LOL!
"But does it give TM posters the right to insult _Jim and then invite him here to see it?"
Hey...As far as I know....Only one or two people were involved in that. The other 99.9% of us were blind sided. Just because you don't like someone who lives in the apartment building and calls names to you out the window...Does not give you the right to attack every tenant in the building.
Means alot from you JM ;)
LOLLOL! What a time to think of Quix!
Not talking about you and you know that:)
Sure will will be up soon!
Tis not what I meant Cindy, was just bringing up the phrase
"Here's hope and prayer they *can't* prove _Jim wrong. I'm on the fence on this one as well "
You must consider yourself one of the .01%...LOL
>>>Who could we bomb in retaliation for another attack without civilian casualties?
in war, there are always civilian casualties. They are always the pawn of the enemy.
Just adding my 1.5cents clarification.
FoxNews ^ | 5/29/04 | FoxNews
KHOBAR, Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States said late Saturday that seven of the American hostages taken by suspected Islamic militants in Khobar have been released.
Prince Bandar bin Sultan told U.S. authorities that five of the former hostages were unharmed, while two had suffered injuries.
Earlier Saturday, terrorists wearing military-style uniforms stormed two office compounds in the heart of the Saudi oil production region
If anyone finds a picture which shows "the uniforms" please post. I am wondering if they match the military uniform I saw an Arab working at a gas station wearing yesterday.
Thanks Vel. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one getting that...AND I'm thrilled to see it was nothing.
Report says Iran trains suicide bombers
LONDON, , May. 29 (UPI) -- Iran has reportedly established what could be the first training center for Islamic suicide attackers, the Middle East Newsline reported Sunday.
MENL cited Iranian sources and media reports that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps has established a center to train suicide attackers throughout the world. The center is called the World Islamic Martyrs and Fighters Staff Headquarters.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guard's intelligence service set up the training center in support of Islamic insurgency groups linked to Tehran. The groups have included Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command.
The state-operated Iranian Student News Agency first reported the existence of the center on Wednesday. The London-based daily A-Sharq Al Awsat gave a similar account in an article by Iranian analyst Ali Nouri Zadeh.
That URL does not come up Jill!
That makes sense. Nor am I disputing that thought. But I don't mind hosting the picture for Oorange to find out.
Revel! No one was blindsided or should have been since _Jim was only addressing those who called him to this thread and to those who responded to him! If you read all the linked posts, you will see that _Jim was talking only about those ridiculing his views on the blackout. Folks on this thread who think otherwise are sensitized perhaps because of the past detractors who purposely and deliberately stopped by here just to be rude unilaterally. _Jim clearly did not do that and he did not denounce everyone on this thread, even if you do not appreciate his style.
It must be the Harley influence on you!
No coffee yet, but didn't he write Coma?
If so it is true now.
Niters everyone! Sweet dreams!
I read all of his posts...And I can't see that, but no matter...It is over now. Time to get on with things here. I have an uneasy feeling about the very near future.
