One eye but Nine Lives !.

Postby Garavnoss » Sat Jan 16, 2016 8:41 pm

The Algerian "One Eyed" fighter Mokhtar bel Mokhtar {reportedly killed on several occasions in the past] has pledged allegiance to IS.

This remarkably elusive warrior seems to be gifted with a better understanding of what is going on in the world with his "One Eye", than a whole host of Military and Political manipulators equipped with "Two" [or even "Four"]. :lol:

Now "Mokhtar" [as his close associates are apt to address him] was apparently a very nice chap in earlier times.

Something must have happened to upset him. 8)

I know a Mukhtar!

Anyway, what has he got to be pissed about? What have we done? What has made him kill innocent people?

He is only elusive because the French have not been too active. Soon he will lose his other eye, and won't be able to see once French Intelligence take up the cause.

So now these Islamists can only thrive in dysfunctional and very poor African countries where the Governments barely manage to offer any services outside the capital.

Huh...we must be winning the war.

Open you eyes !., I don't think it is going to plan, in spite of what is served up on a daily basis. 8)

Oh yes it's going to plan alright.

IS are about to lose Ramadi and they are on the back foot in Syria too. I would say that the coalition intervention is proving to be quite successful.

Depending upon how you view "Success" one would have to agree that the greater of such successes would be the manner in which the Western forces have escalated the resistance to their aggression, to a far wider field of conflict.

The uprisings are becoming far more frequent and far more horrendous in so many new areas.

I think it is time to slacken off a bit and consider the outcome of prolonged campaigns of violence against forces that have shown such determination to resist and retaliate. 8)

They are just on the run and only exist in the far reaches because we let them. If we wanted to, we could track down this Mukhtar and send him to paradise but we are not going to send troops there as well.

He is no threat at this point in time.

I think you will find that old "Mokhtar" has been reported slain on several occasions over the past few years, he may only have one eye BUT, it must be a good one as he seems quite able to keep it wide open. :lol:

Not by us! We never even knew who this geezer was until yesterday.

He can thank his lucky stars that it has been only the Africans chasing him as much as their capability and intelligence allow it.

Now he would be on borrowed time if we choose to help the Africans out a bit. I think for now, we will condone his existance until he starts executing Westerners DAESH style. We can be quite accommodating but there are limits.

I suppose the Russians and Assad's SAA are just sitting around playing back-Gammon and waving at the coalition aircraft as they fly over. Oh, we must not forget the valuable contribution of the western armed moderate Islamists ..... although I'm not sure whether that would be a plus or a minus for the coalition?

You live in a World of media delusion, don't believe all you read!!! :roll:

Had it not been for Putins intervention the coalition would still be bombing the same old targets they were for the two years before Putin took charge in Syria. Putin changed the game big time ...... but of course Kerry will run to form and try to take all the credit ...... the US did the same in WWII! The mighty US won WWII almost single handed, when we all know now that it was mainly Russia (USSR) that defeated the Nazis! Nothing changes. :wink:

You know very well that Pootin has done nothing in Iraq and yes almost nothing around the DAESH strongholds of Raqqa. It is our troops on the outskirts and it is our planes in the air and the stronghold will be in our hands.

And Pootin can't attack these forces because the shit will hit the fan and you can say bye bye to the peace process. Raqqa will be in Kurdish hands soon.

Not a Russian plane in sight. If there was, and if they attack our Peshmerga forces, the coalition will engage.

If on the other hand they wish to help, then they better declare their intentions by contacting our AWACS.
