The HORROR REPORT has been around since 1999, in some shape or another. At that time, we were on message boards and forums.. AOL rooms and ICQ rooms.. Now we're steady as a website--one that changes its design now and then, much to the chagrin of readers who are thoroughly confused by the constant reshaping of icons and pages.. Throughout all of the history of the HORROR REPORT, we have told readers of the scariest of things both real and fake. Movies, TV, comics, and books. And real events..
The news of the day is always scary. It is always the best of times and the worst of times..
The latest 'worst of times' news is constantly streaming to us from the Middle East, where a death cult describing itself as a religious branch of Islam is wrecking lives and destroying realities.. ISIS is not a Muslim group. They are beyond the pale, and have no regard for decency or any tenets that other Muslims hold.. As a matter of fact, we are being thrown back onto the cesspool of the Middle Ages with each beheading.. each burning..each stoning.. and each baby being stomped on by ruthless men who are hellbent on shocking the world even more than we have been..
Just last night, the HORROR REPORT reported on the prophecy of end times that is guiding ISIS. They believe they are heralding in the final days. Some in the extreme religious right think the final days are here, too.. but they are mistaken when they believe their rapture will save them from suffering the rest of us would have to endure. World citizens, I think we are in this together. And if we don't think about how to stop this new century's villain, the next century will look back and either ask us why they inherited a thousand years of darkness or ponder why this current age seemed determined to allow itself to become a turmoil-laden battleground of religious insanity..
ISIS is expanding its area. The latest atrocity is showcasing their power in Libya and growing influence in North Africa. Tim Lister reports today that the group is actually growing at a warp speed:
ISIS is under pressure in parts of Iraq and battling a variety of adversaries in Syria, but it's metastasizing at warp speed elsewhere, most dangerously in Egypt and Libya.
It also has support in Yemen, Afghanistan and Pakistan. And the leader of the group ravaging northern Nigeria, Boko Haram, has expressed his admiration of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.Set featured image
I am reminded of the previous comments of our leaders..Comments that all proved to be either wrong or ignorant.. Bush with his 'bring it on.' Obama with his 'benchwarmers' comment about ISIS. Or the Iron Lady Hillary Clinton's 'we came' joke about Qaddafi's death and subsequent corpse raping the dictator endured at the moment when the 'Arab Spring' took shape in Libya.
Dead ambassadors. Weapons being given to Al Qaeda.. chess matches in a land of oil. And all for what? Another group of horror established itself.. John McCain denies he met with them. But there are photos.
If those photos matter now.
This is morphing at a warp speed..
500 miles from Rome.
And they could watch 500 more.
