The wild evil hogs draw near;
The weather smells of their hate
And the houses smell of our fear;
Death has opened his white eye
And the black hole calls the thief
As the wild evil hogs draw near.
Ravens alight on the wall,
Our plans have all gone awry,
The rains will arrive too late,
Our resourceful general
Fell down dead as he drank
And his horses died of grief,
Our navy sailed away and sank;
The wild evil hogs draw near.
Just a bit of hog poetry, innit. Thanks, GWB, for the insight. In the meanwhile local swine are lying low(ish), but the fight's not over, not by any means.
Doves in a few weeks.

“Isma’eel”, said: “Man, they really are dropping like flies over there lol [laugh out loud].”
Another, calling himself “AbuJunayd”, said: “Inshallah [God-willing] the more the kuffs [non-Muslims] deploy, the more the bros will send em back in body bags, or crutches or with serious psychological problems.”
“Waziri” said: “By command of Allah, the invading forces will be forced to withdraw humiliated and defeated by a group of men who between them do not possess even one transport helicopter.”
“Noorah”, said: “They are really getting whooped. Don’t know how they think they can win.”
You can read the whole story here and more than a few have speculated on Jihadist traffic from England to the North West Frontier and beyond. I'm no expert, but there might be truth in rumours of 'insurgents' turning up in Helmand with English Football Club tattoos...
Maybe they have, though its surely more likely that the U.K's homegrown Taliban are perfectly willing to stay at home.

CS: Simply put, it is about control. Control over what we eat, drive, what doctor we see, how much we earn, who we hire, or even live by. Absolute control over our lives…
Even today, I think Jefferson stands. Remove the right to bear arms and what other freedoms follow? You know the saying, "give 'em and inch and they'll take a mile." Neither fraction is one I'm keen to give up.
Thanks, Conservative Scallywag, for the answer and Liberty Pen for putting the question. See the whole interview here.

Women could be forced to abort their pregnancies, whether they wanted to or not.
The population at large could be sterilized by infertility drugs intentionally put into the nation’s drinking water or in food.
Single mothers and teen mothers should have their babies seized from them against their will and given away to other couples to raise.
People who “contribute to social deterioration” (i.e. undesirables) “can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility” — in other words, be compelled to have abortions or be sterilized.
A transnational “Planetary Regime” should assume control of the global economy and also dictate the most intimate details of Americans’ lives — using an armed international police force.

You know who have waited by the wall
The twilight certainty of an animal,
Those restitutions of the blood
You know--the immitigable pines, the smoky frieze
Of the sky, the sudden call: you know the rage,
The cold pool left by the mounting flood,
Of muted Zeno and Parmenides.
You who have waited for the angry resolution
Of those desires that should be yours tomorrow,
You know the unimportant shrift of death
And praise the vision
And praise the arrogant circumstance
Of those who fall
Rank upon rank, hurried beyond decision--
Here by the sagging gate, stopped by the wall.
Seeing, seeing only the hogs
Flying, plunge and expire
Well, one word's original and that makes all the difference. Thanks, GWB, for the line and Mr. Tate for genius.
PS. Go to Virtual Mirage for an amusing Cell Phone Karma video. Thanks LL.
