Mark Steyn: Wake up, Europe, you've a war on your hands
Chicago Sun-Times ^ | November 6, 2005 | Mark Steyn

Posted on 11/06/2005 3:14:50 AM PST by Puzzleman

Ever since 9/11, I've been gloomily predicting the European powder keg's about to go up. ''By 2010 we'll be watching burning buildings, street riots and assassinations on the news every night,'' I wrote in Canada's Western Standard back in February.

Silly me. The Eurabian civil war appears to have started some years ahead of my optimistic schedule.

If burning the 'burbs gets you more ''respect'' from Chirac, they'll burn 'em again, and again.

The sentence would be just as accurate if we substitute "Carter", "Clinton", and "Kerry".

If Chirac isn't exactly Charles Martel, the rioters aren't doing a bad impression of the Muslim armies of 13 centuries ago

Steyn's strategic sense is amazing!

quote:

If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.

Winston Churchill


wow!

Does anyone not believe that Winston Churchill was one of the greatest men of the 20th century.

Steyn is one of my few fellow countrymen who actually sees and calls things for what they are. Which is exactly why he is a pariah here.

"Hooray!"

There may be more inappropriate responses in desparate circumstances,but yours will do to portray insanity and functional disconnectedness.

We now pronounce you a sociopath.

How do you NOT feel?

"Anyone that doesn't realize this is a world war with Islamic fanaticism is a fools fool soon to be a victim IMO."

I agree, but I think it's worse than that. I don't want to be cynical but this is a world war against ISLAM. Period.

I had no idea such concessions were being made for the Islamofascists.

It is the silent gradual slippage of a house built upon the sand of unprincipled secularism rather than the rock of western tradition.

We ain't reached that point yet...

OTOH, this time the French might refuse our aid.

"now they must lie in it."

Unless France wakes up real soon, that will read "die in it."

Make that "last 500 years".

''The sweet dream of universal cultural compatibility has been replaced by the nightmare of permanent conflict.'' Which sounds an awful lot like a new Dark Ages."

The chattering classes of elites eat their bon bons while their world disintegrates around them.

The may not even be awake while their heads are fitting the guillotine/ scimitar.

Actually it is Islam's war against the world. Because the Islamites started it and they can call it off any time they choose. We, the rest of the world, have only three choices: submit, fight and win, or die.

Wait ... wait! Thanks

When I said ... "It's just that I have limited amounts of ammo ... " I based that on the amount of ammo needed to burn out the barrel of what ever weapon I am using.


Thanks for the heads up though. I do need some more .30-06. ;)
