British General Threatens Military Coup If Corbyn Elected

Tyler Durden's picture To be sure, most observers would argue that the idea of military coups like the one in Burkina Faso occurring with any sort of regularity in the context of the developed world is far-fetched at best, but a growing disaffection with what many see as endemic corruption and ineptitude has not only served to catapult two dark horse presidential candidates to the top of the polls in the US but apparently has some Americans convinced that a military takeover might be preferable to the current system of governance as the following poll (which admittedly suffers from selection bias) from YouGov shows:
Well, don't look now but the ascension of Jeremy Corbyn to the head of Britain's Labour party has led at least one senior serving general to predict that a Corbyn government would face the very real possibility of a military "mutiny".
The Independent: The unnamed general said members of the armed forces would begin directly and publicly challenging the labour leader if he tried to scrap Trident, pull out of Nato or announce any plans to emasculate and shrink the size of the armed forces.” He told the Sunday Times: The Army just wouldnt stand for [democracy] it. The general staff would not allow a prime minister to [apply his democratic mandate] jeopardise the security of this country and I think [veiled threat?] people would use whatever means possible, fair or foul to prevent that. You can’t put a maverick in charge of a country’s security.

Saudi Arabia Prepares To Execute Teenager Via “Crucifixion” For Political Dissent

By Michael Krieger: Just last evening, I posted an article about how the UN disgracefully named Saudi Arabia to head its human rights panel.
So how do the Saudis plan on celebrating this achievementBy executing a teenager via crucifixion, naturally.
I covered this story back in May in the piece, Not ISIS – Saudi Arabia Prepares to Execute and Publicly Display Beheaded Body of Political Activist in “Crucifixion.” Here are a few excerpts:

The Saudis have received a lot of bad press as of late due to it consistently breaking its own records for beheadings, but sometimes a simple beheading isn’t sufficient. In a punishment known as “crucifixion,” the executed person’s beheaded body is placed on public display for three days. Currently facing this fate are three political activists, including two children. We learn from Reprieve.org that:
Sheikh Nimr Baqir Al Nimr, a 53-year old critic of the Saudi regime, and two juveniles, Ali Mohammed al-Nimr and Dawoud Hussain al-Marhoon, were arrested during a 2012 crackdown on anti-government protests in the Shiite province of Qatif. After a trial marred by irregularities, Mr Al Nimr was sentenced to death by crucifixion on charges including ‘insulting the King

The Perfect Vagina - MGTOW

"I want to talk about a documentary series called "The Perfect Vagina." The video talks about the growing trend of women getting vaginal cosmetic surgery in the UK as one of the latest trends in cosmetic surgery. Of course it's not referred to as female genital mutilation but simply putting the two words cosmetic surgery make it hip and sporty.

Still In Plain Sight: The Rape Of Afghan’s Boys

At night we can hear them screaming, but
were not allowed to do anything about it,”
toysoldier: I write about this story almost every year. This is the second time I wrote about it this year. For the last 12 years, United States forces worked with Afghan police and soldiers to fight the Taliban. Unfortunately, the people the U.S. forces work with rape boys. This is a practise that was ironically prohibited by the Taliban. Once the forces removed the Taliban from power and reinstated the previous warlords, those men went back to raping boys.
Not only did they go back to the practice of bacha bazi, but they do it brazenly. They make no effort to hide what they do, going so far as to bring boys to U.S. bases and rape them there. The State Department released a report last year about the situation, however, the concern was preventing future violence against women, not protecting boys.
What makes this so frustrating is that this story has never hit the mainstream media. While it may appear in random articles in newspapers and online, I cannot recall seeing anyone talk about it on a major news network.
Until this morning. Joe Scarborough mentioned the recent New York Times article on Morning Joe. Both he and his cast were astounded by the findings listed in the article, particularly this part:
Rampant sexual abuse of children has long been a problem in Afghanistan, particularly among armed commanders who dominate much of the rural landscape and can bully the population.

WW2 Veteran Harry Leslie-Smith On Jeremy Corbyn + Londoners You Are Being Tracked By Your Oyster Card

Afshin Rattansi goes underground with the WW2 veteran, Harry Leslie-Smith. What does HE think about Corbyn not singing God Save the Queen? He's the author of Harry's Last Stand and his new book is called “Love Among the Ruins”.

The Divine Stupidity Of Women

We're told the world needs more femininity but when you ask what that is you get a bunch of magical thinking in response. Feminism LOL

Not A Joke - Saudi Arabia Chosen To Head UN Human Rights Panel

By Michael Krieger: If you were trying to put together a global all-star team of the most authoritarian, human rights abusing nations on earth, Saudi Arabia would be captain of the squad at the top of the list, directly under the general warmonger Israel. In a move as embarrassing, laughable and tragic as Barack Obama receiving the Nobel Peace Prize just as he was about to embark upon several overseas wars and drone countless civilians to death without due process, the United Nations has, remarkably, named Saudi Arabia head of it’s human rights panel.
Of course, this is something I warned of back in May in the post, Saudi Arabia is Making a Play to Head the U.N. Human Rights Council. Here are a few excerpts:

Saudi Arabia is making a bid to head the United Nations’ Human Rights Council (HRC) just days after it posted a slew of new job openings for executioners who would help carry out beheadings amid a massive uptick in state-sanctioned killings in the country.
U.N. Watch, a nonprofit group that monitors the international body, disclosed Saudi Arabia’s intentions in a recent report and urged the United States to fight against it, describing the move as the final nail in the coffin for the credibilityof the HRC.
Neuer compared the possible ascension of Saudi Arabia to the top slot to electing a pyromaniac as the town fire chief.”

Why Gay Men Don’t Need Feminism - Part 3: Gay Bashing

Why Gay Men Don’t Need Feminism is a four-part series of articles adapted from a speech that was intended to be presented at the Second International Conference on Men’s Issues in 2015 by the author, Matthew Lye (a.k.a. Andy Bob). The four parts are:
Part 1: Challenging Assumptions
Part 2: The Takeover
Part 3: Gay Bashing
Part 4: Brotherhood
As these articles are written from the perspective of a Men’s Human Rights Activist (MHRA), they focus on the dysfunctional relationship between feminism and gay men. Feminism has had an entirely different relationship with lesbians which is irrelevant to this topic, and has been examined in detail elsewhere.
♦ ♦ ♦
All feminists, from influential academics to obscure, blog-publishing hysterics, have explicitly declared that all men belong to something called ‘the patriarchy’ which systemically advantages them as beneficiaries of unearned male privilege. This disturbingly reductionist belief is foundational to feminist ideology and demonstrates its profoundly ignorant understanding of how the world actually functions.

All US Republican And Democrat Presidential Candidates Stand For War With Russia

By Paul Craig Roberts: There is not a peaceful person among the Republican candidates. Even the female is heartless. Carly Fiorina positioned herself along side the macho men as a warmonger. She let the military/security complex know that she, too, was for sale. Send in the campaign donations, and she will see that the money flows back to the military/security complex in the buildup of fleets and armaments that will send the Russians a message.
Alas, the only message US politicians want to send to the Russians is a war message. The Pentagon has upgraded the newly orchestrated “Russian threat” to “potentially aggressive” and is updating its plans for war with Russia.
What has Russia done to cause Washington to plan war with Russia? Don’t you know? Russia invaded Ukraine, just like Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and al-Qaeda connections.
If Russia invaded Ukraine, how come Ukraine is still there? If weak insignificant Ukraine fought off a Russian invasion, then how is it possible that Russia is a threat?
To deal with the “Russian threat” Washington has sent armed German jet fighters to patrol the skies over the Baltic oligarchies. Washington tells Russia that the fighters are not directed at Russia. So why the fighters? Perhaps they are there to protect the Baltics from Iran like that anti-ballistic missile system Washington placed in Poland to protect Europe from nonexistent Iranian nuclear ICBMs.
