#3  Off the "crumbs or croutons or bread pudding" pile...

In a world where the standard for vicars
Is "tats that extend past their slickers,"
One bird's so demure,
So impossibly pure,
That her tats are all hid by her knickers!

-War on Police-
Ambush of French Firemen, Police with Firebombs and Fireworks Lasted Four Hours
Just another standard French summer, thanks to the Moslem colonist yoots in the suburbs.
[Breitbart] Police and firefighters in the French city of Limoges were subjected to attacks by Molotov cocktails and mortar fireworks for at least four hours this week after being lured to a “sensitive” area of the city.

The four-hour-long battle between locals and police and firefighters took place over the course of Monday night and early Tuesday morning. The assaults took place in the district of Val de l’Aurence, which is described as being a “sensitive” area, French government jargon for what others in Europe might term a ‘no go zone’.

#2  When you attack emergency services, your neighborhood should be cut off from all emergency services, water, and electricity. Leave everything off until the attackers are handed over, dead or alive.

#3  Nickerson Gardens firefight, over 1,000 rounds expended by LAPD and feral youth in total, L.A. riots. We had to put armed Guard personnel on every fire engine to keep the sniping suppressed.
As an amusing anecdote, there was sudden demand for the laser pointers used in power point briefings for front-line troops. They discovered that pointing them at assembled groups of Bloods and Crips at night always caused them to immediately disperse as they thought it was sniper targeting with Night Vision optics.

US approves massive arms sale to Saudi, UAE to counter Iran
[ANNAHAR] The Biden administration, the same old faces in slightly different places, the same old ideas, the same old graft
...the pack of self-imagined masterminds of strategy and intrigue at the service of the Biden Crime Family and a grateful nation...
has approved two massive arms sales to Saudi Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. Fifteen of the nineteen WTC hijackers were Saudis, and most major jihadi commanders were Saudis, to include Osama bin Laden. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman quietly folded that tent in 2016, doing terrible things to the guys running it, and has since been dragging the kingdom into the current century...
and the United Arab Emirates to help them defend against Iran.

The more than $5 billion in missile defense and related sales follow President Joe The Big Guy Biden
...46th president of the U.S., father of Hunter, close friend of an imaginary negro named Corn Pop. He blames Trump for losing Afghanistan....
's visit to the Middle East last month, during which he met with numerous regional leaders in Saudi Arabia. Both Saudi Arabia and the UAE have been hit in recent months with rocket attacks from the Iran-backed Iran's Houthi sock puppets
...a Zaidi Shia insurgent group operating in Yemen. They have also been referred to as the Believing Youth. Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi is said to be the spiritual leader of the group and most of the military leaders are his relatives. The legitimate Yemeni government has accused the them of having ties to the Iranian government. Honest they did. The group has managed to gain control over all of Saada Governorate and parts of Amran, Al Jawf and Hajjah Governorates. Its slogan is God is Great, Death to America™, Death to Israel, a curse on the Jews They like shooting off... ummm... missiles that they would have us believe they make at home in their basements. On the plus side, they did murder Ali Abdullah Saleh, which was the only way the country was ever going to be rid of him...
rebel movement in Yemen
...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of...
Although Tuesday's approvals are for defensive weapons, they may be questioned by politicians who had supported Biden's decision last year to cut Saudi Arabia and the UAE off from major purchases of offensive U.S. arms because of their involvement in the war in Yemen.

The new sales include $3 billion for Patriot missiles for Saudi Arabia specifically designed to protect itself from rocket attacks by the Houthis, and $2.2 billion for high-altitude missile defense for the UAE.

"The proposed sale will improve the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's capability to meet current and future threats by replenishing its dwindling stock of PATRIOT GEM-T missiles," the State Department said in its notice informing Congress of the sale.

"These missiles are used to defend the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's borders against persistent Houthi cross-border unmanned aerial system and ballistic missile attacks on civilian sites and critical infrastructure in Saudi Arabia," the department said.

For UAE, the department said the sale would "support the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of an important regional partner. The UAE is a vital U.S. partner for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East."

Early in his administration Biden had pledged to cut off or cut back weapons sales to both Saudi Arabia and the UAE because of their actions in Yemen.

Two killed over Karabakh as warring sides claim violations
[ANNAHAR] Two soldiers were killed Wednesday over the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh as the two warring sides accused each other of ceasefire violations.

Arch enemies Armenia and Azerbaijan fought two wars -- in 2020 and in the 1990s -- over Azerbaijan's Armenian-populated region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Armenia ceded swathes of territory it had controlled for decades, and Russia deployed some 2,000 peacekeepers to oversee the fragile truce, but tensions persist despite a ceasefire agreement.

On Wednesday, the Azerbaijani defense ministry said Karabakh troops targeted Azerbaijani army positions in the district of Lachin, which is under the supervision of the Russian peacekeeping force, killing an Azerbaijani conscript.

The foreign ministry in Baku said that the "bloody incident" demonstrated that Armenia did not respect the ceasefire agreement.

"All responsibility for the incident in Azerbaijan lies with military and politicianship of Armenia, which has not yet withdrawn its illegal armed formations from the territory of the neighboring state," the foreign ministry said in a statement.

The army of the breakaway statelet accused Azerbaijan of violating a ceasefire Wednesday morning and killing one soldier and wounding another eight at the line of contact later in the day.

"Measures are being taken together with Russian peacekeepers to stabilize the situation," the Karabakh army said in a statement.

Six weeks of fighting in the autumn of 2020 claimed more than 6,500 lives and ended with a Russian-brokered ceasefire agreement.

Roads around Gaza to remain closed for 3rd day amid fears of Islamic Jihad attack
[IsraelTimes] Military bolsters forces surrounding Strip with terror group said determined to avenge arrest of West Bank leader; Israel said refusing PIJ demands made through Egyptian mediator

Following a new assessment held by the Israel Defense Forces, road closures along the border with the Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response...
Strip will remain in place on Thursday, for the third day in a row, local authorities said Wednesday night.
