Unidentified Military Aircraft Bomb Terrorist Locations Near Derna Libya Again…

Within a few hours of an Islamist terror attack against Coptic Christians in Egypt President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi launched airstrikes against known extremist positions in Eastern Libya.   In the aftermath of those strikes we shared: “don’t be surprised if“…

(Via Reuters) Warplanes carried out three air strikes on the Libyan city of Derna on Monday, a witness said, days after Egypt launched strikes on militant camps there against those it said were responsible for killing Egyptian Christians.

On Friday, Egyptian fighter jets struck Derna just hours after masked militants boarded vehicles en route to a monastery and opened fire at close range in the southern Egyptian province of Minya, killing 29 and wounding 24.

No military immediately confirmed Monday’s strikes. The witness said one attack hit the western entrance to Derna and the other two hit Dahr al-Hamar in the south.  (more)

Trump 2016 – “You want to have a certain amount of, you want to have a little bit of guesswork for the enemy,” Trump said. “They have to be able to say you know, he’s unpredictable. One of the articles came out recently about my business dealings, and a very respected man said that Trump is one of the greatest businessmen in the world, because he’s totally unpredictable. We never know what he’s going to do. And you know what? I want to be unpredictable with this, too.”

Trump continued, “I don’t want to be like Obama, where he’s always saying you know, we’re going to do, in two weeks, we’re going to do this, and then we’re going to do that. And I’m saying to myself, can you imagine General Douglas MacArthur or General Patton, they’re spinning in their graves. … I don’t want to really be saying what my initial thought is.” (link)

Brett Baier:  Your assessment of President Trump?

al-Sisi: “I first saw the campaign of his excellency President Trump, and I listened to his speech of the neccessity of facing and confronting terrorism all over the world; that he is a great personality and a unique individual, and that he will find great success.”

“I fully trust the capabilities of President Trump, and I have full conviction that he can do things, exert efforts, that very few people can do.  And he can succeed in so many fields that others cannot.  I trust him wholeheartedly.  And again, I congratulate you for having him.”

Baier: I know you were one of the first to call and congratulate him, if not the first; what is your relationship like between you two?

al-Sisi: “I followed all his announcements through his campaign, he has a very unique personality and administration, and now I’m speaking with full confidence of unprecedented success for him.  He is seeking the interests of the United States and the American people in a very clear manner, and a very direct manner. And a very strong manner as well.”

“His true will is a very strong will to counter terrorism and extremism in the world; and that is a very strong commitment from his excellency the president, and in addition I am very supportive with full force in facing this terrorism.”

Baier:  Did President Trump talk about aid to Egypt?

al-Sisi:  “All I can say in this regard is that his excellency the President promised to support Egypt, with very strong support. And I trust his promise.”

      Thank you A2, that was interesting to read. I also read a few of his older articles as well. I got stuck in one part when an official from Egypt was explaining to the reporter that the different loser groups trade bombing techniques, arms, and, get this…suicide bombers. I was thinking how the heck do they do that? It’s not like they can be used again or anything. Two of my bombers for your one, cause he’s super serious about getting the job done?

      Okay, I’m sure it’s a trade of like so many guns and so much ammo for one suicide bomber. It just stopped me for a moment is all.

      Another interesting part that I had read is that Egypt’s Air Force had been ordered (since 2015) to shoot any 4×4’s crossing the border that are not going through the proper check points.

      Could you imagine our Air Force doing that here? Oh heck no, never be allowed. The criminals have too many rights. Sure, it’s pretty radical, but I sincerely doubt any of the “good” illegals would continue to take the chance and the numbers of illegals crossing would drop even more dramatically.

      I’m not saying we should do this since it would really bother and eat me up if any innocent children were killed or women and girls to be used for bad things. The criminals may not care, but I do, and I’m sure many others do as well. Now, if there was a fool proof way I’d say, go for it, heck ya!

      One last thing, (promise) I did get a kick out of how the reporter inserts his own name in the article here and there. I don’t know if it’s their practice in the area or what, but I did get a chuckle.

      Thank you for sharing this with us.

            It’s hard to get diseases because they keep the good ones locked up. However, you can still get them from places where they exist “in the wild”. Say ten percent of the people from the region are infected. If you scoop up 100k you can expect about 10k infected. Not good enough. What you need to do is raise the infected percentage. If you jam them all together for a week or so, in say a detention center or something, you can make sure everyone is exposed. Next, spread it around. The most effective way is to make sure there are lots of kids in your infected, school age kids. If you can get them in place by the beginning of the school year, you can spread maximum carnage. Sounds like a bad movie plot right? But it’s not. Obama did it. Hundreds of kids dead. Thousands paralyzed. EV-D68, pertussis, even smallpox. We’re very lucky his ebola plan failed.

              You did forget a couple things.

              Muzzle healthcare personnel so they can not report on the diseases coming in and allowed into our schools.

              From 2014:

              […]TB is spread when infected people cough or sneeze. People can inhale the bacteria-laden droplets in the air. In the crowded, hot, humid detention centers, conditions are perfect for the spread of TB—as well as dengue fever, Chagas, Ebola, chicken pox, measles, mumps, whooping cough, scabies, and lice.

              After exposure to TB, the incubation period can range from 2 to 12 weeks after a positive TB skin test. Long before this incubation period is over, illegal immigrants are being shipped to communities throughout the United States, risking major spread.[…]

              Border Patrol agents have already tested positive for TB.[…]

              The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has downplayed the risks, but anonymous nurses and doctors from Lackland AFB have come forward to say that the government is covering up a serious public health threat. One health care worker was quoted saying: “The amount of tuberculosis is astonishing. The nurses are telling us the kids are really sick.”

              Normally the CDC would be providing warnings and preventive steps for the public to take. This time, however, the CDC has been strangely silent. In fact, medical staff at detention centers have been threatened with criminal prosecution if they report these cases to the public or press.

              This suppression of critical medical information is egregious negligence putting millions of Americans at serious risk.[…]

        Does he wear a blue turban? Waiting for the guy who wears the blue turban. Does he come from Iran? Nostradamus predicted it so!

        • KBR says:

          No Nostradamus didn’t. There are a lot of crazy interpretations out there.
          I write this to entertain you, and maybe help too.

          He did not say that a blue turban king would be antichrist. C9:73 “AntiChrist” is not mentioned here by Michel at all.

          He did say “roi ceiulee Turbao” would enter Foix, and to reign “moins revolue Saturne.”

          “Ceiulee” has a loose interpretation as Latin “caeruleus.” (A stretch I say) meaning blue.

          “Turbao” is capitalized in Michel’s writing, and in the next lines he spells “Turban” so he deliberately used two spellings, or else meant two things, and it was not in a position to change spelling for rhyming.

          “Moins” means less, fewer, under, minus.

          “Revolue” means completed, plus; but could be related to “revolution” in either meaning of the word-so, cycle or revolt.

          “Saturne” means Saturn. Now Saturn means a lot of things to Michel, according to different verses: like the god Saturn (stern, stingy, gloomy), or under a Saturnine ruler or cycle(stern,stingy, gloomy) or the planet Saturn in astrology.

          So “king (of whatever, maybe blue?) Turbao will enter Foix and rule there for less than a revolution of Saturn” 29.5 years.
          (Ruling Foix, a small French town, for 29.5 years is not what the texts you might read say that the Antichrist will do, now is it? In fact, I haven’t read anything about the “AntiChrist” demon and any small French town, have you?

          OR it could be interpreted:
          “Into Foix enters King (blue?)Turbao and to reign less than the gloomy severe cycle.”

          Now, if you want this to be really interesting, there is actually a turbo-motor company called Turbao in Mexico right now! And their logo is BLUE! And they wear BLUE shirts!

          So… is the “ruler” of that company, Turbao, going to be reigning supreme in sales of turbo engines in the town of Foix, France until the gloomy severe financial cycle finally ends?LOL! (I laugh, but this is just as good an interpretation as any others, maybe better.)

          Michel de Nostradame was writing verse/rhyme as well, and sometimes used poetic license to make the rhythym work or the words rhyme, and he threw in obscure Biblical and ancient history references and different languages.

          Many have attempted translations, but most merely wait until something happens and then go look to see what might (however vaguely) match up to it in his verses.

          The “experts” too often utilize older translations (which were often wrong) to create “new” translations and are therefore plagarizing the mistakes of older or dead writers.

          I translate it as a hobby, word by word, ancient historical reference by each one, and have done for 30 years. A Hobby. It helps me keep my weak French reading skills alive. It introduces me to ancient history trivia, ancient maps, ancient names for countries. It is brain exercise.

          It is fun. Especially when an “expert” comes along to tell his nonsense and sell his books, and scare people. I laugh and laugh.

          But even if Michel was enormously successful at prophecy as is claimed, we would not know it:

          Because interpreters of his verses and his meanings & his symbols & ancient history are not nearly as successful as THEY pretend to be.
          “Articles en vain sont alleguez.” to quote Michel in a verse.

          However, straight reading turns up interesting predictions:

          This one predicts terror coming to “Romains” (people who now occupy ancient Rome’s territory) from “Babel” (Middle East)

          thus it does successfully predict terrorism coming from the Middle East and North Africa:

          One (thing) which the infernal gods of Hannibal (North African)
          Will make reborn,(is) terrorism of the people.
          Never more horror than this nor more dire to be revealed by journalists
          This advent to come Babel to the Romains.

          (Romains=People who now occupy the territories of ancient Rome.)

          However, when Michel lived, that was not a particularly unknown threat.
          I mean, it’s not like he predicted terrorists would come from China, or India, or Russia, or Finland or outerspace. He merely predicted that the Islamists would come back again.

          Many use this verse to say it is predictive of a single man, “the” antiChrist. However, Michel never mentions a “single anti-Christ ruler-type” here at all. Not even the word “roi” king.

          So do not let the scaremongers use Nostradamus to worry you. They hardly ever get it right.

          He generally predicts new wars in Europe with “Mohammedans.” Terrorism has happened but not real wars, as yet…
          He says France will lose their faith…and now only 48% are said to be faithful Catholics.

          He says almost NOTHING about the US, although a couple verses could be stretched…he was French and mostly interested in France and Europe.

          Hope this both entertains and helps you relax a bit.

    Just remember the Islamic tradition of “hudna”, or temporary truce. Muslims, when feeling besieged, outnumbered, or outmaneuvered will invariably call for a truce. This may be followed by a period of calm, offerings of sympathetic but false words to the victimized non muslims, and calls to be peaceful with the “infidels”.

    “Islams claim to being an Abrhamic faith is also another lie promulgated by the deceivers of Islam. Before her conversion to Islam, Khadija incidentally had been a Christian, and it was she who introduced the illiterate Mohammed to the biblical stories of Abraham, Issac, Sarah, Hagar, Ismael, Moses, etc. This is how Mohammed incorporated a bastardized version of the bible in his compilation that he called the Quran (from the Arabic word ‘Qurrah’ – to collect). So tt was Christianity that also gave the iconoclastic angle to Mohammed’s ideas, as also the entire Judeo-Christian hangover that is to be seen in Islam. The pre-Islamic pagan Arabs, knew nothing about the Bible or the Torah. The only link that they had with the Jews was the Arabic language that belonged to the Semitic family. Pre-Islamic Arab lore and poetry had no references to Moses, Solomon, Abraham. This Islam owes to Mohammed’s Christian wife – Khajida.”

    “Now at Medina, the people knew that Mohammed had been declaring himself to be the prophet of god, and he was on his way to Medina. The Arabs of Medina decided to outwit the Jews by becoming his followers and seek his help in defeating the Jews, before the Jews could get to him. This is why the Arabs of Medina (Yathrib) welcomed Mohammed, in whom they saw an opportunity to break the monopoly of the Jews as also get back at their other rivals the Meccans. It was this that made them sympathetic to him. The Muslims of today would have you believe that they were impressed by his message of worshipping one god, who sole prophet he claimed to be. This is horseshit.”

    ” At his core, Mohammed was nothing more than a power grabber, who slyly used religion to promote himself. And the people of Mecca as well as those of Medina saw through that. It was only that the people of Medina, saw in him a tool to get back at the Jews and the Quraish of Mecca, so some of them decided to prop him up. He had many opponents among the Arabs of Medina too. Prominent among them were the poets, whom Mohammed got murdered to silence their opposition to his schemes.”

    “The battle of Badr marked the beginning of the Islamic terror of Jihad. The Muslims had begun their dirty work. the Jihad was on, and on in earnest. Mohammed gave this name Jihad (from Jahada which in Arabic means struggle) to his war campaign. In reality it was not a struggle, it was in fact genocide against all humanity – since at that time except for the gang of small bandits at Medina led by Mohammed, everyone else was non-Muslim. This defeat of the Meccans in 624, was also the first victory for the forces of that evil genius Mohammed.”

    Question regarding that last picture- do you believe that Erdogan is on our team?
    I have long believed that he is the real head of the Islamic state snake just waiting for the right time to take over.

    So I’m hoping that Trumps dealings with him are more about keeping your enemies even closer.

      No.
      Erdogan is on his own team all by himself. Sometimes he is on EU team. Sometimes others.
      He is a taqquiya expert scheming for his own power.

    Sisi wasted no time punishing ISIS, then punished the Egyptians who were responsible for the Christian’s safety.

    “Police Major General Faisal Doweidar will be transferred from his position as Minya security chief to a new post as deputy chief of security at the ministry, effective Wednesday, three security sources said.”

    On the topic of ME armies and fighting, I found this video very interesting as to the mentality of the army and why they don’t fight as well as armies of Europe and the US. This is in reference to actual armies, not terrorists.

    Today, in Cairo, the Egyptians and Russians began to fashion their strategic partnership. MOD Shoigu and FM Lavrov met with their Egyptian counterparts and Pres. al Sisis. All aspects of economic, diplomatic, region geopolitics, anti-terror and military relationships are being formalized.

    (Apparently, Russia has no time to mess around with elections and back channels.)
    It is fashioning a deep influence in MENA while it hunts down and kills radical Islamic terrorists, preserving sovereign countries from disintegration.

      BD I remember the press conference our President had with the PM of Italy when he responded by saying that the US is in too many roles and wouldn’t be involved with Libya. I love the fact that the Russians are. At this point, enough is enough. We need to work with Russia to eradicate these animals off of the face of the earth.

    That’s good news about Russia and Egypt. Putin doesn’t want them in his country either.
