“The billions shift from side to side, and the wars go on with brainwashed pride
For the love of God and our human rights, and all these things are swept aside
By bloody hands time can’t deny, and are washed away by your genocide
And history hides the lies of our civil wars.”

W. Axl Rose


ISISAncient Egyptian Goddess of children, mother of War, protector of the dead. Her name means ‘throne’ and she was patroness of nature and magic, friend to slaves and sinners.

Also, since last Monday, the richest terrorist group on the planet. With the sacking of the Iraqi city of Mosul, and the looting of it’s central bank, ISIS have purportedly pocketed a cool $429 million. This is the army of militants kicked out of AL-Qaeda for being too extreme. Seriously…? Too fucking extreme…? This is from the organization that claimed responsibility for flying passenger airliners into the fuckin’ World Trade Center. An event that irrevocably changed the course of human history.

Ancient Egyptian Goddess of children, mother of War, protector of the dead. Her name means ‘throne’ and she was patroness of nature and magic, friend to slaves and sinners.

Yeah, man. These crazy motherfuckers are doing their own thing. “Fuck those pussies in AL-Qaeda; we’re gonna rock ‘n fuckin’ roll…”

These are the fuckers who took on Hezbollah. The savages massacring soldiers and civilians alike, leaving mass, shallow graves in their wake. Committing war atrocities as if they were legitimate military strategy. And posting holiday snaps of their work. The fanatics who are beheading and crucifying their opponents on the road to Baghdad. In the name of ‘God’.

Just when does this insanity become enough. What did we expect…? We invade a deeply religious, fiercely proud and irreconcilably divided nation, reduced it’s infrastructure to rubble, leaving it’s economy in tatters, shock and awe it’s population into submission, occupy it’s capital, topple it’s government and execute it’s leader. All for the most transparent of lies, the most blatant of manipulations. And then…? We throw ’em to the fucking wolves…

It’s like locking a pit-bull in a cage with a rabbit. And a chainsaw. And we didn’t expect a regional sectarian bloodbath to ensue…? Fuck, no. The military-industrial complex has to feed. Master puppeteer, Dick Cheney’s infamous ‘dark side’, methinks…

ISIS‘ black flag currently flies over a third of Iraq. Thought Osama and Saddam were bad…? Think again. Now we’re twice as fucked.

Ever heard the expression ‘better the devil you know’, you fucking morons…? Quit fuckin’ around with cultures you don’t understand, in retaliation for perceived injustices perpetrated by generic adversaries. Unless, of course, you were looking for another patsy all along, however despicable he may have been.

Enemies with horns and tails. Focus our fears on the tin-pot dictator, mis-direct our anger towards the Bogeyman of Baghdad. Scamper off with the treasures, hope for sunny weather with a slight chance of jihadist genocide.

Well now these maniacs have a platinum American Express card, just off to do a bit of shopping. Weapons of mass destruction, top of the list.

Speak of the Devil, and he shalt appear…
