Depends on what you think of Huntington's hypothesis.
Essentially I buy it. The hour is late and the sky is dark. America is hated. Can we turn the Titanic of islami hate around or are we just rearranging the deck chairs and squandering precious time and opportunity.
Good news is American troops are in Araby in case the Shiites or the Saudis or both hit the fan.
Perhaps the Clash can be averted. Splintering the muslims helps.
Softshoeing the Saudis, who are the richest slime in the world and pretend to be our friends, doesn't help at all in confronting jihad.
That's the contradiction in the administration's strategy.
And deflection from actual nationstates and ideologies such as Saudi and Pakistan is achieved by using the highly charged and emotional pc/agitprop tactics of sloganeering and name calling to achieve intimidation when any questioning of the official party line is ventured.
Give us time, sir. We have never been conqured by these barbarians and we never will be. We do take our time when we launch into global warfare, however. Imagine how the Russians or the French felt about us in 1941?

Furthermore, there is another fact that must be remembered. The Islamic world has not only the attitude of open war, but there's also war by infiltration.
One of the things which the western world is not paying enough attention to is the tremendous growth of Islamic power in the western world. What happened in America and the Twin Towers is not something that came from the outside. And if America doesn't wake up, one day the Americans will find themselves in a chemical war and most likely in an atomic war - inside the U.S.
ONWARD MUSLIM SOLDIERS BUMP!
