About Ian Bach

Independent Online Terrorist Hunter I teach people how to hunt down and shut down the Bad guys web sites. I also teach about the various countries and cultures. Like most cases it is a small group of bsd eggs that in this case call themselves Muslims but in actual fact they are more like how KKK call themselves ",True Christisians". But in both cases / groups they preach a perverted and twisted view a religion. In the case of ISIS, all Qaeda, al Nusra, and the rest of the terrorists who claim to be true Muslims most of these groups follow the Wahhabi teachings. They are almost all Sunni and their goal is global domination. Yet they must be very bad at math and history. Since most Muslims prefer a separation of church and state and also mist are against Shari's Law. Esp the twisted and overly exaggerated form of Sharia Law that the Wahhabi and other bad guys use. I have studied terrorism, insurgencies, and the best tried and proven methods that work to fight terrorism. My Blogs have many links and articles that can show you who are the best and most knowledgeable people in the fields or counterinsurgency and counter terrorism. When I find great practitioner's I always listen to them to find out who they learned from and who they respect and admire. Thus I am always learning new stuff from the best and most successful in their fields of knoeledge. I strive to be an open and ethical source of information, I have met many awesome, kind, caring, and loving wonderful people many who I am close friends with now from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran, and many from S.E. Asia which also has a high percent of their populations that are Muslim.We must always strive to be aware people are not any one particular religion via that's what they chose to be, instead most people are a particular religion because that's what their parents and/or county is. I was raised Catholic but because I became Interested in magic ,(illusion - smoke n mirrors) and science which lead me to study many religions, and I would call myself an atheist. Yet sometimes when I lose my keys ZI find myself praying "Hail Marys" and a few "Our Fathers" which most always aides me in finding my keys. My belief is that if I just frantically look around for my krys, good luck it takes me for ever. But by saying these prayers it is like s sort of meditation and my mind becomes more calm, which is why it helps my find my keys.

    Yes I went with friends that can be easy referred to as “good people”. There are 2 boats in the video. The boat that 4 people fall out was the other group so.
    My group/raft did well in the slow motion part of a deep pocket (strong rapid that is like a big sink. You will see I am guy on the left in picture at front of the boat bald with big goatee.
    hehe we did well.
    On the last run the Guide let me street the back and call the signals left right etc. it was great but I like independence of kayaks more. I bought a video from the place and then edited all the crap out. The song is from a kayak video I got from guy in salt lake who makes carbon fiber oars/paddles. Ergonomic design he gave me some cool freebies. Oh once I went to the Sundance film festival and we got into private party with some big name band, lol, that was fun. The pro ski and snowboard friends can open doors anywhere we went it was a blast 2000-2001)

    I hope to check out some kayaking someday in Salt Lake area and some mountain biking at the ski resorts.

    One person I met in Salt Lake that is an artist and designed a snowboard that he cuts down the center and then makes some way for it to clamp together or put what they call skins (like snake skin , they probably use same on cross country skis. So the plan they do cross country ski up back trails like mount Olympus or park city areas. Then camp while it snows outside have some hot chocolate and great sleep. Then snap snowboard back together and put the other bindings on and powder all day and untouched. I never was there for that yet maybe someday.

    I have spent a lot of winters, weeks to months, there for about 25 years.

    Ahh a aussie. I know an aussie can appreciate nature more than most americans.

    cheers lass

    I am half scottish Mclean and Cameron clans strong island clans that kept freedom for scotts all over from island to highlands to lowlands. we controled the ships from the west. It is said we also played a big part in ousting nordic rule in scottland like what is that 500 or more ad ago. but its mostly lore as they handed stories/history down in oral peoms and stories.

    I wish americans could have more paid time off like in europe and australia. nature and the out doors is where I feel closer to god then any church. I was close friends for few months with aussies in lake tohoe california during a big winter – ton off snow. I really love the outlook on life they had.
