BREAKING: Feds Warn of Attack on US Southern Border

Judicial Watch

National-Guard-Southern-Border

Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued.  Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.

Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.

Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one JW source.  “It’s coming very soon,” according to this high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.” An attack is so imminent that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is being briefed, another source confirms. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both telephonic and in writing, about this information.

The Growing ISIS Arsenal, Pt. 1

ISIS_Propoganda

By: Brent Parrish

The ISIS terrorist army are accumulating a growing arsenal of weaponry captured from overrun Syrian and Iraqi military bases and weapons’ depots as they rampage across the Middle East. So, I’d thought I’d list some of the more common weapons used by ISIS in Syria and Iraq, along with some of the newer weapons they’ve managed to get their hands as of late.

This is by no means meant to be an exhaustive and comprehensive list of weapon systems being used by ISIS, et al., but rather a list of some of the more commonly used weapons, and few rare ones as well. The list is fairly long. So I decided to break it up into two parts.

Let’s have a gander, shall we?

AK-47 “Kalashnikov” Rifle

24-kalashnikov1-ak-47

Mikhail Kalashnikov, developer of the AK-47 rifle.

AK-47

One of the most common weapons employed by Islamic terrorists worldwide is the ubiquitous Russian-designed AK-47 rifle (a.k.a. “Kalashnikov”). The Kalashnikov is named after its designer—Mikhail Kalashnikov. The AK-47 is a select-fire—meaning, it can fire in both full-auto and semi-auto modes via a selection lever located on the right-side of the receiver—gas-operated rifle chambered to fire the 7.62×39mm round. The AK-47 has an effective range of roughly 300-400 meters.

Dragunov Sniper Rifle

Deir-Ezzor-fighting-Dragunov dragunov1

The Russian-designed Dragunov sniper rifle is probably the most common sniper rifle employed by Islamic terrorists worldwide. The Dragunov is a semi-automatic rifle  chambered to fire the 7.62x54mm rimmed round (7.62x54R). Military versions typically feature a detachable 10-round magazine and a telescopic scope. The Dragunov has an effective of approximately 800 meters.

Kalashnikov PKM Machine Gun

army-assault-adra-battle-PKM pkm_1

The Russian-designed PKM is the most common belt-fed machine gun used by Islamic terrorists worldwide, and also fires the 7.62x54mm rimmed round. It’s a very effective and reliable weapon, hence its widespread use. It’s common to see a 100-round box magazine used with the PKM. There are various version of the MG, such as the PK, PKS and PKMS. The Chinese Type 90 belt-fed machine gun is based on the PKM design. The PK series has an effective range of roughly 1,000 meters, and a rate of fire of around 650-750 RPM.

American M-16/M-4 rifle

American-made M-16A4 rifle.

American-made M-16 rifle with scope.

The American-made M-16 has been the standard-issue rifle for the U.S. military since the Vietnam war, and is in service with many armies around the world. The M-4 rifle is the carbine version of the M-16. Military versions M-16/M-4 are gas-operated, select-fire weapons chambered for the 5.56x45mm NATO round, and typically feature a standard capacity magazine holding 30 rounds. The civilian version of the M-16 is the semi-automatic AR-15 rifle. The AR-15 is not a select-fire military-grade weapon. The M-16 has an effective range up to 550 meters. The M-4 carbine version has an effective range of roughly 500 meters.

Chinese M99 Anti-Materiel/Sniper Rifle

Chinese M-99 anti-material/sniper rifle.

British AS-50 anti-material/sniper rifle.

British AS-50 anti-material/sniper rifle.

The Chinese M99 sniper rifle caused a lot of consternation when it first appeared on the battlefield in Syria due to an Al-Arabiya article that misidentified the M99 with the British AS-50 sniper rifle (one of the best in the world). While the Chinese M99 is a formidable weapon, it is not quite up to “Western sniping standards.” The Chinese M99 is an attempted answer to Western sniper rifles like the British AS-50 and the American M107 Barrett, which have proven highly effective in combat in both Afghanistan and Iraq. The M99 is primarily designed for anti-materiel work—like shooting through engine blocks or walls—or short-range enemy sniper suppression. The M99 is available in both 12.7x108mm (M99-I) and 12.7x99mm/.50BMG (M99-II) caliber versions. The M99 has a maximum effective range up to 1,500 meters.

KSVK Degtyarev 6s8/6s8-1 12.7mm Sniper Rifle

Qassam-sniper-rifle

6S8-1_Degtyarev_12-7mm_sniper_riffle_Russia_Russian_defence_industry_military_technology_001

While not a commonplace sight, the Russian Degtyarev 6S8/6S8-1 12.7mm anti-material/sniper rifle is starting to make an appearance in the war-torn regions of Syria and Iraq. The 6S8/6S8-1 is chambered for the 12.7mmx107 sniper round and features a sliding bolt action, five-round magazine in a bullpup configuration, and has an effective range of 1,500 meters (maximum range 2,000 meters).

DShK 1938 12.7mm Heavy Machine Gun (HMG)

isis_dshk-960x400

dshk-1938-machine-gun

The Soviet-designed DShK 1938 HMG is a 12.7x109mm, gas-operated, belt-fed, air-cooled machine gun that fires from an open bolt and in automatic mode only. The DShK (nicknamed “dushka”) has a rate of fire of approximately 600 rounds per minute (RPM) using 50 round belts. The DShK became the standard Soviet heavy machine gun in WWII, and was used as both an AA (anti-aircraft) HMG and a turret-mounted auxiliary weapon on Soviet tanks. The “dushka” has an effective range of 2,000 meters.

NSV 12.7mm Heavy Machine Gun

NSV-HMG-Syria

NSV-12-7mm-HMG

The Russian NSV heavy machine gun was developed in the late 60′s as a lighter version of the DShK HMG and fires the same 12.7x109mm DShK round. The NSV HMG is a gas-operated, air-cooled machine gun and features a quick-change barrel. The NSV has a slighter higher rate of fire (700-800 RPM) than the heavier DShK HMG. Another version of the NSV is the NSVT, designed for mounting on tanks and armored vehicles. An improved version of the NSV HMG is the Kord 12.7mm HMG. The NSV has an effective range of up to 2 km against ground targets, and 1.5 km vertically, and a 600 RPM rate of fire.

KPV 14.5mm heavy machine gun

KPVT (tank version) 14.5 mm heavy machine gun.

KPVT (tank version) 14.5 mm heavy machine gun.

The Soviet-designed KPV heavy machine gun was originally developed in 1949 as an infantry weapon (designated PKP), but it was taken out of production for being too big and heavy. It was later redesigned in the 60′s as an anti-aircraft weapon. Double-barrel and four-barrel versions of the KPV 14.5mm HMG are known as the ZPU-2 and ZPU-4 respectively. The single-barrel KPV is often seen mounted to technicals in the Syrian and Iraqi conflicts, as well as ZPU-2 and ZPU-4 configurations. The tank-mounted version of the KPV is known as the KPVT. The KPV has an effective range of 3,000 meters (4,000 meters maximum) and a 600 RPM rate of fire.

The 2A7 is a 23mm automatic anti-aircraft cannon intended for air defense gun systems such as the ZU-23-2 (see below). The 2A7 23mm has an effective of up to 2.5km (2 miles).

ZU-23-2 “Sergey”

ZU-23-2-Syrian-War ZU-23-2

The Soviet-designed ZU-23-2 (2A13) mounts two 2A14 23 mm autocannons and has a practical rate of fire of around 400 RPM (2000 RPM cyclic). Ammo is fed by a conveyor belt from two 50-round ammunition boxes that are mounted perpendicularly on each side of the gun, which distinguishes the ZU-23-2 from the ZPU-2 14.5mm AA autocannon.

AGS-17 “Playma” Automatic Grenade Launcher

AGS-17-Playma

AGS-17-afghan

AFS-17-automatic-grenade-launcher AFS-Ammo

The Soviet-designed AGS-17 automatic grenade launcher can fire 30mm grenades at a rate of up to 400 rounds/min. The AGS-17 was widely operated by Soviet troops in both Afghanistan and Chechnya, and was well-liked for its heavy firepower. The AGS-17 has an effective range of 1,700 meters.

RBG-6 Grenade Launchers

The RBG-6 grenade launcher was originally developed in South Africa as the Milkor MGL, manufactured under license in a number of countries, including Croatia, where it is known as the RBG-6. The RBG-6 has an effective range of 375 meters.

RPG-7

ISIS-RPG-7

RPG-7_detached

RPG-7_ammo

rpg7q

The ubiquitous RPG-7 is a mainstay of Islamic terrorists worldwide. The RPG-7 is a portable, unguided, shoulder-launched, anti-tank rocket-propelled grenade launcher. Originally developed by the Soviets to take out main-battle tanks and hardened targets, the RPG-7 can fire various types of rockets, such as single-stage HEAT (high-explosive, anti-tank), tandem-charge HEAT, fragmentation and thermobaric. Due to its ruggedness, simplicity, low-cost and effectiveness, it has become one of the world’s most popular anti-armor weapons. The RPG-7 has an effective range of 200 meters.

RPG-22 “Netto”

RPG-22-Syria

RPG-22

Via WikiPedia:

The Soviet RPG-22 Netto is a one-shot disposable anti-tank rocket launcher first deployed in 1985, based on the RPG-18 rocket launcher, but firing a larger 72.5 mm fin stabilised projectile. The weapon fires an unguided projectile, can be prepared to fire in around 10 seconds, and can penetrate 400 mm of armour, 1.2 metres of brick or 1 metre of reinforced concrete.

The RPG-22 has an effective of range of 150-200 meters.

RPG-29 “Vampir”

RPG-29-with-Round

The RPG-29 is a portable, shoulder-launched, rocket-propelled grenade launcher developed by the Soviets in the late-80′s, which resembles more of a “bazooka” than an old-school RPG-7.  The RPG-29 fires the lethal PG-29V tandem-charge warhead, capable of defeating the composite armor of modern main-battle tanks (MBT)—one of the few warhead systems capable of defeating reactive and composite MBT armor systems. The RPG-29 has an effective range of roughly 500 meters, and up to 800 meters with tripod and fire control unit.

M79 OSA “Wasp” Rocket Launcher

M79 Osa comparison

The M79 OSA is a portable, shoulder-launched, 90mm rocket-propelled grenade launcher developed in Yugoslavia and was based on the French 89 mm LRAC F1. The M79 OSA is often times confused with the Russian RPG-29. The M79 OSA has an effective range of roughly 350 meters.

Konkurs “Spandrel”Anti-Tank Guided Missile (ATGM)

Konkurs-ATGM

Konkurs-ATGM-funker

The Russian-designed 9M113 Konkurs (NATO name: AT-5 “Spandrel”) is a wire-guided, roll-stablized SACLOS (semi-automatic command to line of sight) anti-tank guided missile system specifically designed to take out tanks and armored vehicles. The Spandrel was introduced in 1977 and has a maximum range of 4,000 meters and a minimum range of 100 meters, and can penetrate up to 600mm of rolled homogenous armor (RHA). Other ATGM systems commonly used in the Syrian Civil War are the Chinese HJ-8, Russian 9K115-2 Metis-M, and the Russian 9M113 Kornet. The Konkurs ATGM has an operational range from 70 meters to 4 km.

Russian T-54/55 Tank

syriatank_726130b

The Soviet-designed T-54/55 “medium” tank made its first appearance at the end of WWII, and is the world’s most-produced tank in history. Some 86,000 to 100,000 T-54/55′s are estimated to have been manufactured since the T-54/55 series was first introduced. The T-54/55 remains in service with some 50 nations around the world. The T-55′s main armament is the 100mm D-10T rifled cannon, and typically sports a coaxial- mounted 7.62m GWT machine gun, and one mounted in the front hull.  The T-55 is a very reliable and rugged tank design, but is highly vulnerable to modern anti-tank weapons.

Russian T-62 Tank

ISIS-T-62

The Soviet-designed T-62 was a partial replacement and successor to the T-54/55 series. The main armament for the T-62 is a 115mm U5TS smoothbore cannon. The T-62 was produced between 1961 and 1975.

Russian T-72 Tank

T-72-tank

The Soviet-designed T-72 main-battle tank was a front-line replacement for the T-62 and entered production in 1971. The T-72 is one of the most widely produced tanks in the world, second only to the T-54/55 series. While the T-72 was not as an advanced tank design as the Soviet T-64 tank, it was cheaper to produce. The T-72 has very good cross-country performance, presents a low-silhouette, exhibits high reliability, and packs a fair amount of firepower with its 125 mm 2A46M smoothbore gun. Secondary armament includes a 7.62mm coaxial mounted machine gun and a turret-mounted NVST 12.7mm heavy machine gun. Despite these favorable characteristics, the T-72 is still vulnerable to modern anti-tank threats, even with reactive armor upgrades. The T-72 is also outclassed by many Western MBT’s, such as the U.S. M1A2 Abrams, British Challenger II and the German Leopard 2.

Syrian Assad Army (SAA) BMP-2 IFV passing a T-72 MBT.

The Soviet-designed BMP-1 is a tracked amphibious infantry fighting vehicle originally designed to provide support for main-battle tank armored units. The BMP series is a cross between an armored personnel carrier (APC) and a light tank. The BMP-1 first entered service with the Soviet Army in 1966. It saw its first combat test during the 1973 Yom Kippur war where it was used by both Egyptian and Syrian forces. The BMP-1′s main armament is a 73mm 2A28 Grom low-pressure smoothbore short-recoil semi-automatic gun, secondary armament includes a 7.62 mm PKT coaxial machine gun.

Lessons learned during the 1973 Yom Kippur war with Israel led to the development of the BMP-2, which was introduced in the 80′s. The 73mm gun on the BMP-1 was considered obsolete at this time. The second-generation BMP-2 replaced the 73mm gun with a 30mm 2A42 autocannon, and also added a 9M113 Konkurs ATGM for potential tank threats. Nonetheless, both the BMP-1 and BMP-2 are highly susceptible to modern anti-tank weaponry.

Obama Right on Cue — From Golf to Fundraisers

Obama-Deal-With-It

Can’t make this stuff up, folks.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Barack Obama is interrupting a weekend trip to return to the White House.

The White House says Obama has changed his plans for Friday and will return to Washington late in the evening after fundraisers in Rhode Island and New York. He had planned to spend the night in New York. Presidential aides say the change in plans was not related to any current events and was the president’s personal choice.

Obama will spend Saturday morning in Washington, then return to New York later in the day for the wedding of his personal chef Sam Kass and MSNBC host Alex Wagner.

The trips come as Obama considers how to respond to the Islamic State terrorist threat and Russia’s apparent invasion of Ukraine.

Obama headlines three events on Friday. Two are just north of New York City in Westchester County, and the third is in Newport, Rhode Island.

New ISIS Video Shows Kurdish Soldier in Orange Jumpsuit Being Beheaded

ISIS  has released another grisly video entitled “2nd Message to America” showing the beheading of a Kurdish soldier. The victim was one of 15 Kurdish soldiers captured by ISIS who are awaiting a similar fate.

The Daily Mail reported:

Islamic State have released a new decapitation video, threatening America for the second time and urging the Kurds to break from their alliance with the West against the caliphate.

Just hours after Islamic State released shocking footage of the mass execution of 300 Syrian national army soldiers in the Syrian desert, Islamic State have issued a second warning to the United States.

The grainy video, accompanied by the hashtag ’2ndAmessagetoAmerica’, shows the vicious beheading of a Kurdish soldier, who was part of a group of 15 fighters likely to have been captured by Islamic State during the fighting in Iraq.

In the latest video, the captors first issue a warning they will continue to decapitate prisoners should America continue to support the Kurds in their fight against the Islamic State.

They then behead one of the captives on a sandy roadside in Iraq, where the Great Mosque of Mosul can be seen in the background.

ISIS is threatening to behead American journalist Steven Sotloff, who appeared in a video showing the brutal beheading of American journalist James Foley, if the United States does not stop its aerial bombing campaign.

The Council Has Spoken!! This Weeks’ Watcher’s Council Results – 8/29/14

The Watcher’s Council

Ringmaster-Holder

The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast, and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match up.

“If I have learned one thing from life, it is that race is the engine that drives the political Left. When all else fails, that segment of America goes to the default position of using race to achieve its objectives. In the courtrooms, on college campuses, and, most especially, in our politics, race is a central theme. Where it does not naturally rise to the surface, there are those who will manufacture and amplify it.” – Ward Connerly

“..Liberals see racism where it doesn’t exist, fabricate it when they can’t find it and ignore it within their own ranks.” - Michelle Malkin

“Since neither black animosity nor the Left’s falsehood of “racial tensions” is based on the actual behavior of the vast majority of white Americans, nothing white America can do will affect the perceptions of many black Americans or of the leftist libel.” - Dennis Prager

This week’s winner,Joshuapundit’s Blackgammon: Eric Holder Plays the Game in Ferguson is my contention that the Obama Administration’s obsession with the Michael Brown shooting has little to do with  justice, civil rights, or ultimately even with Michael Brown himself. Here’s a slice:

Backgammon, on the surface, is a pretty straight forward game. You roll the dice and move your pieces. But beneath that seeming openness are hidden strategies that may only reveal themselves later.

Today, Eric Holder traveled in person to Ferguson, Missouri, where the Aug. 9 shooting of black teen& Michael Brown by white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson during an altercation has sparked massive violence, looting, protests and media coverage.

Holder’s version of the game was revealed as he made his moves today in Ferguson.Ostensibly he was there to oversee the massive Federal investigation of the Brown shooting with the goal of trying to arraign Officer Darren Williams on civil rights charges should the St. Louis County Grand jury fail to charge him with murder ala’ George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case in Florida. But this was essentially a campaign stop at government expense.

Read his remarks here and note the parts I’ve emphasized:

“I am the Attorney General of the United States, but I am also a black man,” Holder told Ferguson residents at a community meeting. “I can remember being stopped on the New Jersey turnpike on two occasions and accused of speeding. Pulled over. … ‘Let me search your car’ … Go through the trunk of my car, look under the seats and all this kind of stuff. I remember how humiliating that was and how angry I was and the impact it had on me.”

“The eyes of the nation and the world are watching Ferguson right now,” Holder told a group of community leaders assembled at a local community college. “The world is watching because the issues raised by the shooting of Michael Brown predate this incident. This is something that has a history to it, and the history simmers beneath the surface in more communities than just Ferguson.”

Let’s translate this, shall we?

“See Y’all, I’m black just like you are and that comes first before anything. So I understand your totally justified rage and anger against the white power structure. It’s them that are on trial, not just a police officer although he’ll do as a symbol ofeverything you feel whitey and the police have done to you over the years.That white power structure, you know, those white Republican Tea Partyers have always oppressed you,and this is just the latest outrage. I understand that, and that police officer looks just like them so they’re going to try to protect him. But since we’re in charge, we’re going to do our very best to see that you get what you want. Because remember, I’m black and I look like you and so does the president, so you all need to vote Democrat in November to make sure we stay in charge.”

Much more at the link.

In our non-Council category, the winner was former AP Middle East correspondent Matti Friedman writing in Tablet magazine with An Insider’s Guide to the Most Important Story on Earth submitted by Joshuapundit submitted by Joshuapundit. The ‘most important story on earth’ is Friedman’s satirical way of referring to media coverage of Israel, and he gives you an insider’s view of exactly how this story is twisted, propagandized and misrepresented by the media..and more importantly, why. Some of the reasons will astound you.

ANNOUNCEMENT:Starting next week, the Watcher’s Council is adding an exciting new feature!

Every Tuesday, the members of the Council will nominate a Weasel of the Week..some public figure who merits special singling out for ignominy, stupidity, cowardice, corruption or just a particularly evil deed. The Council members will provide a short explanation for their choices, and the nominations and explanations on why each choice is worthy of being singled out for special attention will appear Tuesday morning.

We’ll vote, (we’re working on making this public so you can weigh in) and every Thursday the winner of our own special Mark of Shame, The Weasel of the Week will be highlighted in all his or her putrid, despicable glory. Who will it be?

Don’t miss it!

OK, here are this week’s full results. Both GrEaT sAtAn”S gIrLfRiEnD and The Razor were unable to vote this week, but neither were subject to the usual 2/3 vote penalty:

More War Crimes — More ISIS Massacres

taqba-ISIS

The Taqba airbase in northeastern Syria was reportedly overran by the ISIS terrorist army on Tuesday amidst heavy fighting that saw heavy casualties on both sides.

Deutsche Welle (DW) reported (emphasis added):

After several failed attempts to breach the facility in recent days, fighters from the “Islamic State” (IS) managed to storm the Tabqa air base Sunday, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The SANA state news agency also confirmed that the government had lost the air base, saying troops “are successfully reassembling after evacuating the airport and are continuing to strike precise blows at the terrorist groups in the area.”

The battle for the airfield has left at least 346 extremists dead and hundreds more wounded since the offensive was launched on Tuesday, according to the Observatory. It said more than 170 government troops also were killed Sunday alone. There were reports that another 150 may have been captured.

The airfield – home to several warplane squadrons, helicopters, tanks, artillery, and ammunition bunkers – is located some 45 kilometers (25 miles) from the extremists’ stronghold in the city of Raqqa along the Euphrates River.

Tabqa is the latest in a string of bases to fall to the Islamic State group as it expands the boundaries of its self-styled caliphate straddling the Syria-Iraq border. Their steady push in Syria, as well as their lightning advance across Iraq since June, has brought under their control a stretch of territory from Syria’s northern border with Turkey as far as the outskirts of Iraq’s capital Baghdad.

The Islamic State’s offensive has been aided by large quantities of advanced US-made weaponry and armoured vehicles, which it has seized from fleeing Iraqi forces, and an influx of recruits.

Recent reports are claiming the captured Syrian troops were marched half-naked to an undisclosed location and executed en masse. Some sources claim (see here and here) 2oo-plus Syrian troops were “slaughtered.” ISIS posted video of the mass slaughter on Thursday.

Not all are in agreement the people massacred were captured SAA troops from the Taqba airbase, but rather Sunni tribesmen from Shaitat, near Deir ez Zor, Syria, who have vowed to fight against ISIS.
