Liberals Still Hysterical Over Hillary Clinton’s Loss Get Their Own 'Disease'

4yrs ago from Washington Times
A “feeling as though the world is going to end.” That could describe what millions of people could have experienced in the last 100 years. World War I, World War II, the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, Sept. 11, the ISIS rampage throughout the world, all not only understandably evoked fear of the world ending, but all revolved around madness, war and genocide.

Suicide Attacks in Syria Kill at Least 220 People

4yrs ago from The Week
At least 221 people were killed Wednesday in southwestern Syria, in what local officials and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group believe were coordinated attacks. Multiple suicide bombings were carried out in Suweida, a government-controlled town south of the capital Damascus, as well as in villages to the north and east. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the bombings, and officials said militants also forced their ways into homes and killed the people inside. "It's the bloodiest death toll in Suweida province since the start of the war [in 2011]," Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told AFP. ISIS has lost most of its territory in Syria, remaining in small areas of southern and eastern Syria. Catherine Garcia

4yrs ago from The Blaze
A series of suicide attacks carried out in southern Syria by the Islamic State has reportedly killed dozens. What are the details? Initially, the Islamic State took advantage of the instability caused by the more than seven-year-long Syrian civil war to establish its caliphate in 2014. But repeated attacks by both Syrian government forces and U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters have slowly pushed them back until their territory is a fraction of what it once was. But this latest attacks proves that they can still do some damage. According to Syrian state news outlets, 38 people were killed in attacks Wednesday, which included a suicide bombing at a vegetable market. However, the U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights puts the number at 56 people, including 28 pro-government fighters, and the town's health authority said that the number of dead was as high as 150. CBS News noted that a discrepancy like this is not uncommon so soon …
