Jordan Moves “Thousands” Of Troops To Iraq Border

 

 

 

 

 

 

” When ISIS executed a Jordanian pilot by immolation and released the video as propaganda, they may have lit a fire for which they weren’t prepared. Jordan’s King Abdullah quoted the Clint Eastwood film Unforgiven to promise revenge, and he meant what he said. Jordan has shifted “thousands” of troops to the Iraqi border after stepping up aerial attacks on ISIS leadership, according to NBC News:

  Jordan has deployed “thousands” of ground troops to its border with war-torn Iraq as it ramps up a campaign against ISIS militants who burned alive a pilot, two Jordanian government officials told NBC News on Tuesday.

  Supposedly this is a border force to prevent ISIS infiltration from Iraq, but right now the terrorist quasi-state has its hands full dealing with the Kurds and the coalition bombing. The UAE has now rejoined the latter effort after initially balking when the Jordanian pilot could not be retrieved. The brutal manner of his execution seems to have convinced the emirate to re-engage, in yet another example of the backfire over ISIS’ attempts to intimidate others in the region.

  The Jordanian ground troops may have another purpose. Sky News reports that the Iraqi military will begin a “major ground offensive” against ISIS in western Iraq over the next few weeks:

  John Allen, the US co-ordinator for the anti-IS coalition of Western and Arab countries, said on Sunday Iraqi troops would begin a major offensive ‘in the weeks ahead’. “

 

This quote says it all :

 

” The Saudi-friendly, London-based Asharq al-Awsat an a column from its former editor calling for a pan-Arab army to sweep across Iraq and Syria to destroy ISIS. He also scoffs at Barack Obama’s “indolence,” and at his professed “strategic patience,” referring to it instead as “strategic cowardice”

 

Are the Jordanian troops to be the anvil to Iraq’s hammer ? We shall see … Hot Air has more

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sky’s Not The Limit: World’s First ‘Jetman’ Flies Over Dubai Desert

 

 

 

 

 

” A former fighter pilot and Guinness record holder – known as ‘Jetman’ – has performed a new stunt, taking over the skies of the United Arab Emirates. High-flying Swiss national Yves Rossy teamed up with Dubai, flying above the wealth of its land.

” To fly alone is great, but to fly with another guy is greater,” Rossy, who is equipped with a pair of jet-propelled wings, said in a new 4K video, before taking part in a formation flight with Hungarian aerobatics champion Veres Zoltan, conquering the heights in cloudless Dubai.

  Rossy and his futuristic jet suit have partnered with Dubai to push yet higher boundaries within the realm of anti-gravity experiences.

  Naming his challenge a “culmination of decades of fulfilling a childhood dream through technological innovation, determination, teamwork and courage,” the ex-Swiss Air Force pilot took to the skies of the UAE, celebrating its 43rd National Day, as both he and Sheikh Hamdan – the Crown Prince of Dubai – announced on social media.”

UAE Designates American Muslim Groups – CAIR & MAS – As Terrorist Organizations

 

 

 

” Why hasn’t the U.S. done the same? Will Fox News and other media outlets give CAIR a platform now that they are designated terrorists alongside al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hizbollah, ISIS and CAIR’s parent organization the Muslim Brotherhood? Probably. via UAE Designates Two American Muslim Groups As Terrorist Orgs | The Daily Caller.

  The United Arab Emirates has officially designated 83 groups as terrorist organizations, including two based in the U.S., the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim American Society.

UAE’s cabinet made the announcement following a meeting on Saturday.

  Other groups designated as terrorists include al-Qaida, al Nusra, Boko Haram and the Muslim Brotherhood.

CAIR’s designation is interesting given its high profile here in the U.S.

  The group was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case in 2007. Leaders of the Holy Land Foundation were found guilty of aiding Hamas, which the U.S. has designated as a terrorist organization.”

UAE’s First Female Fighter Pilot Led Airstrike Against ISIS

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Maj. Mariam Al Mansouri may be ISIS’ worst nightmare.

  The first female fighter pilot in the United Arab Emirates, she led a strike mission this week against the terror group, that country’s ambassador to the United States said Thursday.

” She is (a) fully qualified, highly trained, combat ready pilot, and she led the mission,” Yousef Al Otaiba told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

  The UAE has joined the United States and a handful of other Arab nations in conducting airstrikes against ISIS in Syria.

  This summer, the group declared the establishment of a “caliphate,” an Islamic state stretching across the territory it has conquered. It maintains strict rules for women, who are lashed for infractions such as not being fully covered.”

7 MOST INCREDIBLE UNDERWATER RESTAURANTS AND HOTELS

 

 

” What could be more inviting than indulging oneself underwater – drinking fine wine, enjoying haute cuisine or simply relaxing in the lap of luxury – while fish swim past and air bubbles float serenely to the surface? Short of restaurants, bars and hotels ensconced on the surface of the moon, entertainment spaces don’t come much more breathtaking. The magic of architectural brilliance and design ingenuity are certainly on the menu for anyone lucky enough to patronize one of these places. Here are seven spaces where vistas of submarine environments open up before the eyes of visitors in the ocean’s depths.”
