…This may not be a grand-scale combat engagement with massive tank formations, but where there’s violent conflict between ideologies, there is war.

This new battlefield will not comprise massive armies; rather, non-state, non-uniformed belligerents supported by nation-states. Even Russia has learned the art of deploying “para-military” forces to covertly conduct their business of armed conflict. And so it’s imperative to interdict the flow of finances and material support to these unlawful enemy combatants.…

I know this part of Bangkok very well. The Erawan shrine is in the heart of the business and shopping area… The shrine is a major tourist attraction. The Thai government said the attack was aimed at foreigners. Local media reports that tourists, including Chinese, are among the casualties. … In determining who placed the bombs or why, suspicion falls upon the Islamic extremist terror movement - aligned with IS - which has emerged from the Muslim south. … I recently discussed the probability of IS-aligned terror cells from southern Thailand becoming operational in Bangkok and directing their actions against foreigners. Unfortunately, I was correct.

From a site called Stormbringer to which I recently subscribed, but don't really know much about.

The IKEA superstore near Stockholm which witnessed a double murder this week by Eritrean asylum seekers has responded by ending the sale of kitchen knives in-store, and the government has stepped up its policing at asylum-lodgings to defend against a backlash.

The response of the Swedish authorities to the ‘stabbings’ which killed what is reported to be a Swedish native mother and son shopping in the Västerås branch of IKEA – the largest in the country – has mystified some international observers.… unconfirmed suggestions in the fringe press that the killers shouted “Allah Akbar” as they struck. … IKEA stores are gun-free zones…

Now, also, knife free zones. Soon to be fork-free zones. Also breakable glassware-free zones. No heavy cooking equipment zones. No large blunt object zones. And why is 'stabbings' in quotes?

So there's this guy in Arlington, Virginia who was walking around with his Confederate/Gadsden hybrid flag (it's basically a Confederate Battle flag with the Gadsden "Don't Tread on Me" snake in the middle). And, according to this, some "concerned citizen" (nosy neighbor is more like it) snapped a picture of the guy and then called 911 because the guy was "walking very deliberately" with his flag. He wasn't talking to anyone or harrassing anybody or trespassing on private property. Just - walking around with his flag. …
