Living in Troubled Times.
"A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within."
What I don't understand is that is right there in front of us, yet we seem oblivious to it. Secretary Kerry was just here in Norfolk saying that "Climate Change is our biggest threat! What are these people smoking?
They aren't war leaders. They are political hacks. That's why the Romans had provisions in their government for electing temporary dictators when they faced military threats. Military policy dictated by non warriors, who are sitting safe at home, and have no knowledge of war, always comes to a bad end. Churchill fought in the First World War as a battalion commander after he was sacked as First Lord of the Admiralty. Eisenhower was a great general. Kennedy, for all his faults, was a combat veteran. We need a Cincinatus but we have none. Instead, we have a Caligula running the show.
the article is very enlightening...but only to those who have not read or studied the qu'ran.the scariest part of the article to me was the sentence that said 'there is no such thing as a non-practicing vegetarian".think about that when you think about peaceful muslims.
I liked the way the writer laid out the subject, clearly and concisely. I haven't read the quran as much as I've read the bible, but I intend to rectify that deficiency. Know your enemy is still good advice.
Hey Kymber and Harry.(captaincrunch)I was waiting on the movie version of the Koran. Maybe they can cast 'Ron Jeremy' the former porn star as mohommad.
It would have to be a child pornography movie given the culture which inspired the script.
oh Captain...you are probably going to burn in hell for that one. at least according to the qu'ran! we'll have to start calling you charlie hebdo from now on! xoxox
Yeah, the Jihadists gonna get you if you don't watch out, CC! All kidding aside, it's true that if they want to find you badly enough, people wilth a little technical skill can find out where you are. I learned that the hard way with the neo-nazi's on the old blog.They started calling the house, day and night, making unpleasant statements. That was not a fun episode.
Harry,I was listening to the radio yesterday, and the guest (I didn't catch the name) made a great point about how to end this muslim charade. He said that the koran says that the muslim holy cities can never be destroyed. So, we just need to just obliterate one of them and that should take the will out of their fight. Do you think it's possible? --T
It won't as long as we pretend Saudi Arabia is a friend. The Saudis pay the Wahhabis to keep the lid on things in Saudia Arabia, but the Wahhabis run fundamentalist schools all over the region turning out little Jihadis by the bushel. Saudi princesses contribute to these madrasas to the tune of millions. And the two best targets, Mecca and Medina, are both in Saudi Arabia.
So much hate comes from these people. One of my grad instructors said,"ISIS is not merely a terrorist organization, it’s an entire nation with its executive, military, political and administrative structure, it’s a nation that is well funded and very well structured. And it’s a nation that is spreading faster than the Black Death, or Ghenkis Khan’s army. However, it’s a nation without defined border. Unlike WWII, we cannot bomb it and call it a day like we did in Hitler’s Germany, because we cannot locate it anywhere on the map. It only exists in the souls of Evil, and it’s made up of a myriad of individuals joining it for various reasons: ignorance, poverty, envy, extremism, hallucination, delusion and pure hate. It declared war on everything that stands in its way. Fighting ISIS is like chasing invisible Zombies, you can slash them if you find them and they will fall then get up and multiply. The only way to fight it is to locate its source and understand why it is funded; who created it and the reason for its existance, and that will need intelligence, tact and a fundamental research in history, phycology and anthropology. We need to find out what went wrong and we need to change the way global powers operate, the structure of religion and the huge gap between social classes. This is easier said than done. Simply shutting off borders and chasing the Bin Ladens will not suffice. That could take decades, and meanwhile, I’m sorry to say, we’re kind of fucked."Anyhow I think he summed it up pretty well. Trying to fight these a holes is like fighting zombies. They will multiply!
Well, there's a lot of truth in that. But as Geraldo said when he was wigging out about his daughter, we know their capitol is Raaki, Syria and we know their Supreme Leader is based there. So that would be a good place to start with a little Rolling Thunder.They are organized along regular military lines, so we could go in and grind them to dust. There would undoubtedly be irregular warfare afterwards, and continued terrorism, but they wouldn't be as strong and as well organized afterwards.As long as Islam exists as a functional belief system, there are going to be terrorists hell bend on exterminating Westerners in general and Christians in particular. Just this morning Al Jazeera was reporting that the kurds have found mass graves all around the city they just took back, and the graves were full of Yasidi men, women and children.
A couple of small tactical nukes would wipe them out, and show the world we will no longer tolerate their existence.....And repeat as needed......
True. A few blockbusters rolled out of the back of a C 130 would accomplish the same positive results with out all the hand wringing and rending of garments by the kumbaya crowd. I was reading a blog and one of the commenters said in all seriousness that she hoped we would not "overreact" to the attacks on Paris. My immediate thought was that it would be impossible to overreact. Seems to me that any retaliation is reasonable and justifiable.
Hey Harry and Drjim.(captaincrunch)In retrospect I thought about in direct retaliation for 9/11 what if George Bush Jr, used tactical nukes on Afghanistan. I remember it seemed like the rest of the world was expecting it after the mass strike on the east coast.I considered this for quite some time. Unless all terrorist's, would be terrorist and their supporters were exterminated, terrorism would not be eradicated.The only way to achieve this would the to wipe out the entire Mideast, Persian gulf region and much of Africa to remove all muslims from the face of the Earth.that is not a practical idea so therefore its not the logical decision. In fact I there is only strategy I can think of that would work and that's to no longer get involved in any fights in the Persian Gulf, mid east except for backing up Israel.I guess if I were president I would just come out and tell the Islamic state, Iran and others that they have their side of the planet, we have our side of the planet and any incursion into the western world will be met with mass retaliation and nuclear option will be on the table.
They want all the planet, that's why they call their state "the World Caliphate." No place to hide for us. We just have to go in there and root the bastards out and kill them. If the hoi polio are supporting them, they have to go too. I'm tired of hearing about how Muslims don't support terrorist outfits like Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Qaida, and ISIS. They damn sure supported terrrorists like the PLO and Hezbollah when I was in the middle east. If you "f**k with the bull, you get the horns." You can't play nice with these people. they don't play nice back and they dont' want to be our friends, so it's them or us.
just read the article. thanks for posting it.will reread it several times.will take some digestion.would that all americans and westerners would read and think about this article.as you said, 'know thy enemy.'.it seems that dealing with martians might be easier as the moslem ethos is so foreign to us.i think that the pacifists are unable to set aside their own mindsets enough to be able to begin to comprehend even the tip of this iceberg.i'm having difficulty with it myself.
I got that from a savvy British woman. Not all the British are rolling over for the Islamothugs. Like it says in the preamble to "Lord of the Rings" , "some there were who resisted."
Hey Harry,(captaincrunch)One of my friends that is 61, and who does not own an AR now wants an AR after what happened in France on Friday.This guys got a shot gun and an old model 94 Winchester and is an experienced shooter, just never owned an AR.Now he wants one an AR and I get to give him advice on that. A friend's wife wants a pistol to carry and get a concealed handgun class. I will help both my friend and his wife on that one too.The only good thing coming out of the disaster in France is now even more Americans are arming up.
So are the Europeans. A week ago I mentioned an article about Austria being virtually sold out of firearms because of the immigrants swarming in. I bet you can't buy a slingshot there now.Don't blame the people for arming up. Obama said yesterday while he was doing a press meeting that there is no way to prevent attacks like happened in Paris, including in the U.S.
