We don’t need no stinking quarantine in Texas.

Here’s one plausible way to end warfare as we have come to know it in the Middle East and Africa.
Embargo Toyota. Cut off all sales of Toyota Pickups and repair parts because “The Toyota Pickup Truck Is the War Chariot of the Third World“.
For three decades, one vehicle has dominated Third World battlefields.
Ubiquitous and incognito, chances are you’re less than a mile from one right now. You could pass one on virtually any street in any city in the world and you wouldn’t think twice.
The vehicle costs a fraction as much as a modern main battle tank. In fact, you can buy 266 of them for the cost of just one tank. Plus it’s more dependable than a tank—and easier to maintain.
It’s not produced by the United States, Russia, France, China or any of the major arms exporters. It’s made by Japan, an avowedly pacifist country that prohibits the export of arms abroad … particularly to Third World combat zones.
From the deserts of the African Maghreb to the mountains of Afghanistan, warriors from tribesmen to American Special Forces have chosen the Toyota pickup truck as their unarmored personnel carrier of choice.
YahooNews reports that Algore’s Climate webcast from Paris suspended after deadly attacks.
So Al, do Abdullah and his hairy brothers give a good crap about “AGW-Climate Change (AKA: Weather) or would they just rather cut your ‘effing head off. So shouldn’t we maybe concentrate our effort and resources to deal with ISIS and put AGW-Climate Change (AKA: Weather) in the freezer for a while?
And, by the way, to say you voluntarily suspended your “show” in solidarity with the French people strains my old BS meter.
You beat feet from Paris’ iconic “Ground Zero Eiffel Tower” so you wouldn’t get blown up or have your head cut off. No shame in that.
PARIS (AP) — A Paris webcast of an all-star marathon event about climate change was suspended after the deadly attacks in that city Friday night.
“Out of solidarity with the French people and the City of Paris, we have decided to suspend our broadcast of 24 Hours of Reality and Live Earth,” read a statement on the concert’s website on Friday night. “Our thoughts are with all who have been affected and the entire nation of France. We send our condolences to the families of those who have been killed or injured.”
More than 135 people have been killed in a series of shootings and explosions across the city.
Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore was due to host the 24-hour live webcast from the foot of the Eiffel Tower to drum up attention for this month’s international climate summit in Paris.
Besides Gore, who helped negotiate the 1997 climate treaty that failed to control global warming, the broadcast was to feature musical performances by Elton John, Duran Duran and others. Other concerts were to be broadcast from locations around the globe, from Rio de Janeiro to Miami, Sydney and Cape Town.
Well, Mr. Obama, that prediction worked out about as well as “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.” The Paris Islamic Terrorist attack death toll sits at 150 and counting. Sure looks like “containment” was a poor choice of words.
From Breitbart, “Obama: ISIS Is Not Getting ‘Stronger,’ We Have ‘Contained’ Them.”
Friday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” President Barack Obama seemingly downplayed the threat of ISIS in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that aired on Friday’s broadcast of “Good Morning America.”
Stephanopoulos asked Obama if ISIS was gaining in strength, to which Obama denied they were.
“I don’t think they’re gaining strength,” Obama responded. “What is true is that from the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq, and in Syria they’ll come in, they’ll leave, but you don’t see this systemic march by ISIL across the terrain.”
“What we have not yet been able to do is to completely decapitate their command and control structures,” he admitted. “We’ve made some progress in trying to reduce the flow of foreign fighters and part our goal has to be to recruit more effective Sunni partners in Iraq to really go on offense rather than simply engage in defense.”
