(Anthrax) VACCINE SYNDROME 2017
A US Marine refuses the anthrax vaccination, this is his legal battle.
(Note: The military shut down the #anthrax vaccination program temporarily prior to 1998 citing concerns about outdated versions of the shot)

Who received the anthrax vaccine before going to #Iraq have developed serious illnesses
Despite the illnesses, Walter Reed officials contend that more than 1.3 million military and civilian personnel have received the #Anthrax #vaccine since 1998.

THE GREAT #ANTHRAX STOCK SWINDLE!
Who are those fellow investors? Well, another part of BioPort is owned by the Carlyle Group. That's George H. W. #Bush's current occupation. Yet another portion is owned by (you had better sit down), the #BinLaden family!

Complete agree. This won’t be over when there’s a cease-fire in Ukraine. World has changed profoundly in the 2 yr-Covid pandemic, the Trump era & perhaps to a greater extent geopolitically even in just this last week. WE NOW ALL FULLY RE-APPRECIATE WHAT WE COULD SO EASILY LOOSE.
This re-appreciation means NONE OF US will be able to torelate thought of a Bond- movie-level-vilain-turned-basket-case, after a deranged aggression against Ukraine, could remain in any position of power & especially nuclear power. This won’t now be over until #Putin is gone.
You & @HillaryClinton are rightly hoping his so badly mistreated people or his own junta, respectively, will bring him down. I think History has shown how profound Russian social inertia really is (they’ve put up with Stalin and Putin for literally decades!).

@LongWarJournal @thomasjoscelyn @SASCDems @SASCGOP HAPPENING NOW: @LongWarJournal's @thomasjoscelyn delivers his opening statement before @SASCDems @SASCGOP on #Afghanistan.

WATCH LIVE HERE: armed-services.senate.gov/hearings/to-re…

Read his full written testimony here: fdd.org/wp-content/upl…
"I heard Gen. Milley say nobody saw that the Afghan forces and government would collapse in 11 days. As the senior editor of @LongWarJournal who's been covering this insurgency for the last 12 years of my life, I have to say... that's inaccurate."

1/5 Il sito infomercatiesteri.it (del MiAE) parla dell'Arabia Saudita come di un Paese con cui il rapporto di amicizia è di lunga data, risalendo agli anni Trenta del Novecento. L’Arabia Saudita, oltre che partner commerciale di rilievo per il nostro Paese, è un interlocutore
2/5 politico sempre più importante, in considerazione del suo crescente peso regionale e nel mondo arabo. Nell’aprile 2016 Mohammad bin Salman ha presentato il piano di sviluppo Vision 2030, che hanno avviato riforme economiche, ma anche culturali e sociali.
3/5 Nello stesso anno è stato sottratto alla polizia religiosa ("Muttawa") il potere di arrestare, identificare o inseguire chi trasgredisce la Sharia, prevedendo la sola possibilità di segnalare gli illeciti alla polizia ordinaria.

"Progettato come una pubblicazione familiare e di facile utilizzo per bambini e adulti, questo eccellente romanzo grafico a colori aiuta ad espandere la comprensione dei dettagli e dei significati concreti nella Guerra al terrore"
"Nessun fumetto pubblicato, né alcuna narrativa da incubo scritta è paragonabile al vero male assoluto rappresentato in questo libro. E anche "Loro" non sono finiti. Immagina un terrorista con una bomba nucleare."

Vienna attacker was born and raised in #Vienna
He also had "Albanian roots" (parents from North Macedonia)

The gunman shot dead in the Vienna attacks was also one of 90 Austrian Islamists who wanted to travel to #Syria

Why is it relevant?

The #Balkans play an important role for #ISIS, which sees them as a buffer and a future battleground. The region already has established networks that can be used to transfer people and to raise support for ISIS.

ISIS has popped up in all corners of the globe, not being contained in the territory it physically controls in Iraq and Syria. Its goal is to create a Caliphate, an Islamic state which holds religious authority over the ENTIRE global Islamic community.

1. siete colpiti dalle immagini della repressione delle proteste negli #StatiUniti? La virulenza della repressione va di pari passo con la militarizzazione della societĂ  dopo l'11/9. Avete visto drone #Predator usato dal #CustomsAndBorderProtection(CBP) per sorvegliare protesta?
2. eccolo il drone #Predator usato dal #CustomsAndBorderProtection(CBP) per sorvegliare la protesta a #Minneapolis: Ecco come vengono usati strumenti inquietantissimi come #droniMilitari,#SorveglianzaDiMassa: vengono usati contro il dissenso
3. voi dicevate che #Droni e #SorveglianzaDiMassa servivano contro i #BinLaden,difendevate la costruzione di democrazie con armi e sistemi di sorveglianza nazisti. Li giustificavate perché il mondo è un posto pericoloso e le nostre democrazie non possono difendersi con il Diritto

@charliekirk11 You are mistaking #PlannedParenthoodVotes, part of a legal #PAC (#PoliticalActionCommittee) with #PlannedParenthood which uses its federal funding within highly restrictive Federal rules such as the #HydeAmendment which bans federal funding for abortions.
snopes.com/fact-check/pla…
@charliekirk11 #PlannedParenthood's super #PAC, #PlannedParenthoodVotes, kicked off a $45 million electoral program targeted toward battleground states for the 2020 election. That's eight times what it spent during the 2018 midterms.

@charliekirk11 #Trump flew to #Afghanistan for his #Thanksgiving dinner.
He probably took the turkey he didn't pardon so they wouldn't have to spend extra money to feed him.
Speaking of govt. funding causing the death of children, read what the U.S. military has done throughout its history.

Amid the ongoing conflict in NW #Syria, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (#HTS) continues to evolve in intriguing ways - into a more politically mature & intelligent jihadist movement.

It's current leadership clearly seeks to position itself somewhere between #MuslimBrotherhood & #AlQaeda.
There's now little question that #HTS no longer represents #AlQaeda.

It's clearly still an extremist movement, but signs continue to add up indicating that it's developing into something qualitatively different than the Jabhat al-Nusra of 2014-15 - a "Shami #Taliban," perhaps.
Most recently in the public space, #HTS issued a statement acknowledging its willingness to abide by an externally-negotiated (by #Turkey, #Iran & #Russia) ceasefire.

That was a first.

Its never happened before in #Syria & it's not a move any #AlQaeda affiliate would ever take.

Sad that @NikkiHaley repeats the 2 flawed narratives:

“giving #Pakistan’s military $1 billion” when everyone knows those payments, under the Coalition Support Fund (#CSF), were repayment for Pakistan’s military support for #US forces in #Afghanistan.
Second, the idea that #Pakistan was killing #US soldiers in #Afghanistan by “supporting the #Taliban.”

#Pakistan lost all ties with the #Taliban when it decided to stand with the US in the global war on terror.
Pakistan asked the #Taliban to handover #binLaden to the #US before the invasion, repeatedly stating that there should not be a war in the region.

The Taliban didn’t listen and #Pakistan cut ties. It took years for those ties to be re-established.

THREAD Jihad in Bosnia
1) I traveled to the Islamic core of #Bosnia where in 1992-1995 hundreds of FFs joined El MudĹľahid unit and fought along with Bosniaks, the first jihadist military presence in Europe. I also investigated the current Salafist scene @ISPI_Terrorism #terrorism
2) The industrial town of #Zenica was the main Muslim HQ in central Bosnia. Hundreds of Arab-Afghan veterans and new jihadists converged here to be later deployed to the frontline. 1995 military parade of the 7th Muslim Brigade linked to El Mudžahid in the presence of Izetbegović
3) Local population is extremely reluctant and annoyed to talk about wartime and follows a code of silence to avoid ethnic tensions. This makes it hard to visit remote villages or ask for details. Bosnian Muslims don’t want to be associated with jihadist #terrorism and war crimes

BREAKING - #ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-#Baghdadi revealed in-person on new #ISIS video post-#Caliphate defeat in #Syria-#Iraq.

He appears in fine health, despite reports of severe injury.
I'm honestly unconvinced that this "diminished" point translates over to #ISIS & its existing/possible support base.

To me, this seems like a Western-centric point from which to analyze a video containing #Baghdadi's 2nd appearance in ~5yrs - a big deal.

#pt: For #ISIS, the struggle is theologically infinite - it isn't "defeated" or "prevented" by territorial losses.

e.g. #Trump's #Syria withdrawal announcement in #Dec '18 would have been perceived as a sign of eventual victory.

- #Baghdadi's video = fuel, not sign of weakness.

With Gen. Mattis visiting #Pakistan today, we wanted to share some tips on what not to ask or do.

1) Don’t come to us asking #DoMore until you’ve taken responsibility for #Afghanistan’s soil & the #terrorists based there with @ashrafghani’s approval.

tribune.com.pk/story/1574915/…
@ashrafghani 2) Don’t expect us to help you until you target & eliminate #TTP, #JuA & #ISKP. All based very close to your FOBs in #Jalalabad, #Namgarhar & #Khost.
@ashrafghani 3) Don’t expect #Pakistan to sacrifice its #NationalInterest for yours. We’ve learned that lesson in 1989, not need for revision.
