Jihad against Yazidis: 21 killed in jihad/martyrdom attack in northern Iraq
As predicted many times here, the jihad is back on in Iraq, now that the Americans are not there in numbers sufficient to keep a lid on it.

"Suicide bombers kill 21 in northern Iraq," by Jamal al-Badrani for Reuters, August 13 (thanks to Maxwell):

MOSUL, Iraq (Reuters) - Two suicide bombers detonated vests packed with explosives in a cafe in a town near the northern Iraqi city of Mosul on Thursday, killing 21 people, a health official said, the latest attack in a restive region.
There has been a series of high-profile bombings in and around Mosul in the past fortnight and the U.S. military said on Tuesday that a resilient al Qaeda had set off a string of deadly blasts.

Thursday's attack took place in Sinjar, 390 km (240 miles) northwest of Baghdad, a town whose inhabitants are members of a pre-Islamic Kurdish sect called Yazidis who live in northern Iraq and Syria.

An attack on the Yazidi community two years ago was one of the deadliest bomb attacks in Iraq since the start of 2007, killing and wounding nearly 800 people.

Bombings and shootings are reported almost daily in and around Mosul, the capital of the northern province of Nineveh, where insurgents have exploited disputes between Arabs and Kurds over territory and oil to remain effective....

that fragged some guys in his unit?
You can't love them for their devotion
and you can't pity them for their stupidity,
all you can do is offer them an express
ticket to the virgins. Assholes.

Here are some thoughts for you...

I think it was Muslims that set off bombs under the World Trade Center.
I think it was Muslims that flew planes into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon.
I think it was Muslims that bombed the USS Cole.
I think it was Muslims that killed 233 Marines in Africa.
I think it was Muslims that have terrorized numerous countries including Isreal, USA, Britain, France, Afganistan, India...shall I go on?
I think that it is Muslims that take a vow to kill infidels in order to secure a spot in their hereafter.

The last time I checked, it wasn't Christians setting off IED's in Iraq. You tell me, what should I think? Should I think that these people are gonna be my friend? Are they gonna go out and have a beer with me? No, these fuckers want to kill me. And the sad truth of it all is that you are too stupid to realize that they want to kill you too. And Obama is one of them. He is a Kenyan Muslim. He went to a Muslim school. What more do you need to know?

ryo is having trouble sleeping tonight. in the morning ryo is going to be in the control tower in the center seat at our gun range as Chief Range Master on Duty for the final round of the 5 state area Youth Shoot Tournament. it's part of my final exams that go through from now to the end of september to qualify as a full Range Master and full Range Safety Officer at our gun club and shooting range. so ryo is a little nervous.

Relax dude

You will do just fine. Think about it this way...You got all of your buds at Gunslot backing you up. We can take on the world. Now go out there and ace that test.

Good luck to you my friend. They are lucky to have you taking such an interest in safety at the range. Go knock it out of the park.

little brother and his best friend are competing yet again for first and second place. once again going into the final round, gary kun, our friend is in front of ryu kun, my little brother, by 15 point overall. but ryo have feeling that little brother is going to shoot clean tomorrow and not miss a singe target and score a perfect score. gary kun will have to shoot against that. that how gary kun beat little brother in the last tournament. they really nice prizes for the top 3 overall winners. first place get 3 cases of ammo of choice on down to third place which get one case of ammo of choice. it will be fun and exciting to watch. but ryo will alway be fair and honest in judgments and will not favor anyone including little brother, but already have a good reputation for being fair and fair minded at our range and gun club.
arigato, (thanks) for taking such an interest in little handicap boy who love shooting and love learning range management and gun safety and have part time job at our shooting range and gun club. you are very nice man bluesharp.

a gun owner. ryo have very tiny collection now. have not been shooting for very long and not nearly as long as little brother. ryo have Cerebral Palsy and so was not even allow to touch a gun until turn 16 sai this year back in may. ryo's hands tremble constantly as about the only external thing you can maybe notice that ryo might be different in some ways. if you never saw ryo have seizure or liver spasms then you would not know ryo was handicap person at all. except for the hands. but now there is medicine and it stop the trembling in the fingers and hands. they put me on this medicine about 6 week before 16th birthday and the medicine work and it calm the trembling in ryo hands and fingers and not make ryo drowsy or dizzy. it just calm the hands and so now have steady hands to properly handle firearms with now. so my pops and the doctor talked it over and agreed it would be safe enough under adult supervision, which should be for anybody under the age of 18. all young people deserve to be supervised by adults who know their way around firearms.
ryo tiny collect includ three rifles and 2 pistols. compare to my pops collection of now 48 rifles and 1 pistol. little brother has 6 rifle and 2 pistol. but for many sai ryo compensated and did not feel sorry for self cause was not allow to shoot when little brother was allow, but ryo understod that little brother did not have CP. so it was safe for him to learn to shoot. ryo began to learn spotting from my pops and grandpa and our friend who own the gunshop where we buy or order most of our firearms and ammo. the our gun club started a Youth Program and so ryo took classes in range safety, gun safety and range management. and was having a ball. and got part time job there too that ryo make pretty good money at too for part time job. but pops and little brother and our friend gary kun and people at the club say ryo is natural shooter and should be able to pass both the NRA Reps youth marksmanship tests and become expert marksman and then have to do similar qualification for this at gun club. because not get to spend all time and range practicing shooting then could take up to a yean before ryo is ready to qualify. but not care. love range management and safety as much as love shooting. hope you understand.

Your friend,
