The Islamic Vortex (Map)

Having seen this a few times now (most recently here, where it’s described as a “five-year plan”), I decided I just had to have it.

FWIW I don’t expect Vienna to have been absorbed into the renascent Caliphate by 2019.
(I don’t expect things to have calmed down, either.)

The Islamic Vortex series was not completed, so it needs re-visiting, but I think it’s holding up quite well (parts 1, 2, 3, 3a, 3b, 4, 5).

    I’m a joke. Any part of the universe that I can interact with and thus know about would become a joke if it wasn’t already. The thing which makes solipsism plausible also makes the universe only capable of manifesting itself to me as a troll, due to my fundamentally ridiculous nature.

    I have a feeling that this sentiment, although strongly reminiscent of solipism, should bear another description. The morbidly comic character of the cosmos is not limited to our perception of it.

    The universe is our perception of it. If we can’t perceive it, or perceive its effects, it doesn’t exist. Ref: Russel’s teapot.

    It looks like it comes from supporters rather than enemies. If it’s shown to be a (hostile) ‘false flag’ I’ll add a warning note.

    Still chuckle at Mangan‘s joke.

    Hmm, does wordpress allow java in comments?

    When ISIS says it will invade Spain, why does it seem so believable, doable, and winnable?— Mangan (@Mangan150) July 8, 2014

    They might have a five-year Caliphate plan but we’ve got a Holy Roman Empire mug.

    This sort of thing doesn’t date quickly.
