I just read an article by Robert Fisk about the ISIS debacle in the Middle East... and the thing that got me is the Syrians fighting ISIS suggest that these ISIS characters are foreigners speaking... wait for it.... Chinese. At which point you just throw up your hands and say: what the h.ell is going on out there?
"“We often don’t understand them because they are foreigners speaking their own language,” the general said. When I asked him which language he heard most frequently, he replied. “Well, it’s very strange, but we think many of them are speaking in a language which is Chinese.” He was not joking."
I wonder when or if we will ever find out what is actually going on in the world.
As to the statistics and the data... who knows? Trade at your own risk.
A bit of history lesson is needed to understand Chinese unit in ISIS..A few hundred of the Uygur Chinese or Muslim Chinese are among ISIS units at present ..Bin Laden and his comrades were trained by CIA..Bin Laden later trained Uygurs to fight for pan-Islam state somehwere..
ISIS core units were trained by US military some years ago..When Bin Laden died some 10 years ago for illness,Uygur Chinese unit went to join ISIS..Uygur unit is on wanted list in China and will face firing squad on return..So better die for their cause somewhere outside China..Brief CV of ISIS folks..

Every US President since Carter missed the opportunity to nuke these bastards out of a do-gooder mentality - there would be no blow back from the only two nations that mattered

nh, actually ever since Truman. If you recall, Paton wanted to go in as soon as WW2 was over and settle up then.

bc thanks for that history update. It is this type of information from local sources that makes our forums unique and different than anything else I have seen on the web.
shanghai bc 00:47:40 GMT - 11/13/2014
Bin Laden was a asset of CIA and Pakistan intel.. And had a good connection with Chinese intel too..Not a simple personality..Pakistan intel had a contact with Bin Laden all along..They had that info of Bin Laden's bladder problem and resulting death in bed..Pakistan and China share all info on security front..That is classified info in China :)

bc Are you saying that it was not Bin Laden who was killed in 2011?
shanghai bc 00:58:34 GMT - 11/13/2014
My pleasure..Learing a lot from the Forum too..Much better than governments sponsored news circle..
shanghai bc 01:12:28 GMT - 11/13/2014
If you go to northern Pakistan or Afghanistan countryside,you will see many folks who look like and dressed like Bin Laden..Not easy task to differentiate at all by their look unless DNA is tested..All governments fabricate news to their convenience..Simple facts..

Euro comments a close below 1.2390 opens up the recent low and a Possible waterfall decline.

bc - Thanks for clarifying who the Chinese speakers fighting with ISIS in the Middle East might be. I find the whole thing mind boggling. And for me it makes the global geopolitical situation just that much more difficult to read. I can't help but feeling we are playing without the full deck of cards.
Summit in Brisbane, robust rhetoric from the Rhodes scholar -which frankly I find pitiful (but still), Russian war ships hanging around somewhere off Brisbane but apparently they do that at every gathering (?)... even so some people (judging from the propaganda output) are spoiling for another major war. Good for the arms merchants, the police and surveillance state and pretty much no-one else.
Meanwhile the cost of refunding the U.S. government debt keeps rising (no-one comments or notices)....
