Terrorism, in all forms, whether committed by West or East, is abhorrent…but a generalized article such as this is poor journalism causing the BBC to insult itself – www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-11654390.
Overall, disappointing but maybe “innocent” sentences such as this say it all:
“The US says that IF a terror link is confirmed, the main suspects will be al-Qaeda’s branch in Yemen – al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).”
It reads small but when taking into account that massive amounts of Western media slant reports so that there are perpetual enemies, it’s a major problem e.g. think about those imaginary weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and the “nemesis” of the USA, Osama and his dialysis machine, unable to be found due to his unique cave hiding ability. It’s a joke.
Real journalism finds facts, not innuendo whose main terror is in its own words. The Good, The Bad & the Ugly should be reality, not propaganda.

Hi guys. We’ve all been putting in long hours but we’ve really come together as a group and I love that. Big thanks to Omar for putting up the poster that says “There is no I in team” as well as the one that says “Hang In There, Baby.” That cat is hilarious. However, while we are fighting a jihad, we can’t forget to take care of the cave. And frankly I have a few concerns.
First of all, while it’s good to be concerned about cruise missiles, we should be even more concerned about the scorpions in our cave. Hey, you don’t want to be stung and neither do I so we need to sweep the cave daily. I’ve posted a sign up sheet near the main cave opening.
Second, it’s not often I make a video address but when I do, I’m trying to scare the most powerful country on earth, okay? That means that while we’re taping, please do not ride your razor scooter in the background. Just while we’re taping. Thanks.
Third point, and this is a touchy one. As you know, by edict, we’re not supposed to shave our beards. But I need everyone to just think hygiene, especially after mealtime. We’re all in this together.
Fourth: food. I bought a box of Cheez-Its recently, clearly wrote “Osama” on the front, and put it on the top shelf. Today, my Cheez-Its were gone.
Consideration. That’s all I’m saying.
Finally, we’ve heard that there may be American soldiers in disguise trying to infiltrate our ranks. I want to set up patrols to look for them. First patrol will be Omar, Muhammed, Abdul, Akbar and Richard.
Death to infidels,
