Mr Grumpy....14th March, 2019
A couple of things got my dander up this week.
First up, Shamima Begum and her baby. Just to recap, this young lady left the UK to join Islamic State, a terrorist group that seems to possess a particular talent for executing civilians, soldiers, journalists and aid workers. Beheading seems to be their speciality, and they’ve recently branched out into destroying cultural heritage sites, usually in tandem with general ethnic cleansing in Northern Iraq.
They often travel abroad to kill, and operate in 18 countries (that we know of) with an estimated 30,000 fighters supported with an annual budget of $1bn.
