This is getting laughable. Ridiculous even. Stupid to the point of brain death. Moronic to the point of forgetting to breathe.
First of all, ISIS™ has a nice, slick magazine full of all sorts of colorful images, ads and advice to the up-and-coming young professional terrorists out there. It’s called Dabiq and on the cover of this months publication it says ‘JUST TERROR”… in English of course.
Really? “Just terror”? Really? How about “Got Terror?”? Or “Terror. Just Do It!”? “Just terror”? I hope some mall store sues them.
Ok. Moving on.
In this month’s edition, the publishers at Dabiq have published an article in which they explain how they blew up Metrojet Flight 9268. They say at first they planned on targeting one of the NATO “coalition of the willing” members, but for some unknown reason, decided to shift gears and blow up a Russian jet instead. That is a nice touch. Brings it back home to the Western audiences I suppose.
“After resolving to bring down a plane belonging to a nation in the American-led Western coalition against ISIS, the target was changed to a Russian plane”.
No explanation as too why they changed targets is offered.
They claim they did it with this: the Schweppes Bomb of Doom.
Yes, that is a metal can with a metal detonator and a toggle switch made of metal components. ISIS™ says they “smuggled it onto the plane”
This is what we are scared of? This is what we are at war with? We have to spend trillions of dollars fighting this? Are you kidding? It’s a can from recycle bin in the green-room at some photography studio. Is this a joke?
Unfortunately, it’s not a joke or at least, the MSM isn’t taking it as one. They are all over this “breaking news” from this credible source, ISIS™
(I wonder how many dimwits are out there pouring their Ginger Ale down the drain right now. I’m guessing a lot.)
Of course, keep in mind, the first time ISIS™ tried to take credit for downing Flight 9268, they implied they took it out with a shoulder-mounted surface-to-air missile.
Of course, people soon found out that a shoulder-mounted surface-to-air missile couldn’t hit a target at that range so ISIS™ posted a video supposedly showing Flight 9268 blowing up and crashing.
Turns out, that was a lie as well. The plane in the video is not Flight 9268.
After repeatedly lying about their role in the downing of Flight 9268, one might think that folks would take any new claim by ISIS™ with a grain of salt especially when one considers that the Russians estimate the bomb contained at least a kilogram of high explosives (2.2 pounds) and that stupid can up there couldn’t hold more than a quarter or so of that.
The high explosive that is the most dense is probably C-4. It’s a military grade explosive. Here is a picture of a 1.4 pound charge. It’s about 9″ long.
If you packed that stupid little can with this crap, you might get about half of it in there. Maybe a little more. I don’t know. I don’t make bombs.
Other high explosives are less dense and therefore you would get even less in the can. PETN for example, which is also considered a military grade high explosive.
As ridiculous as the ISIS™ claim is and given their history of lying about other events and specifically, this event, you would think the MSM would be a little cautious about taking them at their word on such matters.
And… you would be wrong.
Yep. Chris Cuomo did an overly lengthy segment last night going on and on about the ISIS™ story, making sure to give credit to the terrorist’s magazine (as you can see in the upper right corner)
Chris brought in some “experts”, Josh Rogin and David Soucie, and they all sat around pondering the diabolical nature of the ridiculous Schweppes Bomb of Doom.
If you go over to 21st Century Wire, Patrick Henningson has a good write-up on the spectacle of the CNN production.
I shouldn’t single out CNN though. It seems everyone from Reuters to Haaretz is citing this stupid ISIS™ / Dabiq story as if it’s a credible source. I guess that makes sense considering the fact that the Mockingbirds at those institutions work for the same guys who produce Dabiq.
First the shoe-bomber, then the Diaper of Doom featuring Umar Fizzlepants, then the amazing pressure cookers that seem to deflate when inserted into a backpack… and now this.
And these are the guys who have been beating ObamaGod in Syria for the last 13 months?
And to make it even sadder, we are now having to watch as our complicit corporate media cites these idiots as valid sources of information while they continue to erase comments left by readers linking back to websites like mine or 21st Century Wire because we aren’t credible.
Right. I’m not a credible source, but the lying, tweeked-out drug fiends of ISIS™ IS a credible source.
I guess, when you think about it, it makes perfect sense.
The quote “Ignorance is strength” doesn’t quite cover it, does it?
Please help keep us up and running if you can.
