Selling the ISIS brand
#1
Well worth watching:

The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.

NATO laboratory in Bulgaria produced captagon used by jihadists: Tunisie numerique

Tunis. Captagon, the drug used by the jihadists with the Islamic State to get tough and fearless, has been developed in a NATO laboratory in Bulgaria, Tunisie numerique writes.
"Captagon is a synthetic drug created in a laboratory of NATO in Bulgaria. Some of the more suspicious people will probably see the latest evidence proving the participation in some of the super-powers and NATO countries in the establishment and expansion of the Islamic State phenomenon," the news edition comments.
The Tunisian news website explains that after its production the Captagon goes to the Islamists in the form of small white pills.
Tunisie numerique recalls that before the Syrian conflict the drug was used in other conflict zones, adding the former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi accused the Islamists in Libya of taking hallucinogens.
Apart from deadening the feeling of fear and pain, the Captagon also has hallucinogenic effects.

How interesting. I wonder if that is one of the many ways the US provided material support for ISIS.

I assume that everyone is now aware of this:

Thanks for that RK. Great website. I see our Terry Mauro is commenting there too.

What surprises me about 'selling the ISIL brand' is that they're offering trips in Zeppelins, and I've always wanted an airship. True story.

From: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/...st-5729591
"A Brief Guide to the Islamic State [2015] also promises wannabe killers a Mediterranean climate, mouthwatering food, a "Cosmopolitan atmosphere" and even the promise of travel by ZEPPELIN."

And I've always considered myself to be on the cosmopolitan side of things - for a northerner. >ouch, headache<

You are most welcome. Doug Valentine left a comment there as well.

This is all so surreal, it's like a Terry Gilliam movie (specifically, Brazil).

I'm very skeptical that most Sunnis in the Iraq-Syria region want an Islamic fundamentalist state - from everything I've read over the years, most of the Sunni Arabs in that area are pretty moderate and secular. Which is why I don't get how ISIS can be growing so fast and holding territory so easily.

ISIS aren't offering an Islamic fundamentalist state though

They don't follow Sharia - even by the most stretched of imaginations.

ISIS are gaining territory in a few places, but are getting destroyed in others. One of the reasons why they haven't already been wiped out is obviously because they have unlimited money and resources behind them, in the Qatari's, Americans, and Israeli's.
