Posted on 12/11/2006 6:34:25 AM PST by PlainOleAmerican
Terrorists abroad have spent decades preparing for war against the west, studying American culture, identifying all of the cracks in the mortar, all of the weak links in our chain of command and the soft spots in our defenses that make the worlds last remaining super-power a vulnerable target for any terrorists willing to die for the cause.
In retrospect, America's weaknesses were more obvious to others than most Americans thought.
The USS Cole Attack

What must change to survive such an enemy?

May I suggest that America's weak link is Canada.
You can suggest anything you like, once you actually read the column...
Teheran and Mecca must be changed into fields of glass.
Deport all the mohos, Democrats and other socialists?
Take Saudi oil away from the Arabs. Worldwide terrorism is an unintended consequence of $$$ flowing into an ancient culture.
The same people who comment on articles before reading them, voted socialists into power thinking they were just Democrats...
I'll second that!
and now, so do too many RINO's!
We have met the enemy, Pogo; and it is us.
This is what I have been saying here for years, and so has everyone who has any notion of the history of Islam. The Saracens must suffer a level of destruction so great that they are convinced that Allah does not will that Islam shall prevail in this generation. Then after utterly destroying Teheran and selected other bastions of the paynim, their countries should be occupied, all mosques and symbols of Islam destroyed, and the populations forcibly converted to Christianity- Christianity because that is the religion with which we haver some experience. Ultimately it is Islam which must be destroyed. Mere destruction of the cities and the works of Islam will only put off another reckoning a couple of generations down the road. The people must be crushed and converted. The point of conversion is NOT actually to create more good Christians but to drastically shrink Islam. Christianity is the handy substitute.
Too many of "us", but not I...
According to Rick Santorum, Glenn Beck, and others, this is the decisive factor!
Our culture will not survive this fight.
"The Saracens must suffer a level of destruction so great that they are convinced that Allah does not will that Islam shall prevail in this generation."
The truth is always obvious to those seeking truth! BRAVO!!!
We'll survive, but there is bound to be a hell of a lot more suffering before the people are willing to fight. 3000 dead is clearly not enough.
Works for me.
From the column...
"He with the will to win will win. He won't accept any other outcome."
This is the bottom line and we are losing the war of wills...
Our culture no longer knows what American ideals are...
Democratic Socialism - learn it, love it, live it! It's the future of America under tyranny...
Yep. We pretty much fight a war with our hands tied behind our backs while the Isamofacists kick us in the balls.
The author makes some good points, but he misses out another weakness, our liberal media who fights the war of public opinion for our ememies.
studying American culture
What must change to survive such an enemy?
American K-12 schools, and colleges and universities.
Where should we send donations of culottes?
A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
By spreading this definition around, perhaps we can employ one of the more effective methods of deflating and defeating the fools who practice and promote it: RIDICULE.
Unless stopped and soon PC will DESTROY Western Civilization -- if it hasnt already.
PASS IT ON!!
Which must begin with crushing the NEA and the John Conyers - Teddy Kennedy's who seek further indoctrination of our youth.
We may not survive long enough for Democratic socialism to take hold if we don't prevail in the Islamic War.
"This is the bottom line and we are losing the war of wills..."
I can't disagree with this. What I want to know is how we, as single Americans can change this. Can you make some positive suggestions to this effect?
These are words every American MUST learn to LIVE by!
"and the populations forcibly converted to Christianity"
I hope you lay no claim to understanding the religious faith of Jesus Christ. Put down your keyboard and pick up the Bible and read Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans and Hebrews. Then get back to us. Until then, what unmitigated tripe!
It seems the firebombings may not have affectd the course of the war itself. Studies have shown that there was no reduction in the production of war materiel in Germany after the firebombings. What was accomplished was the defeat of the population. It was necessary to stun and defeat the population for the occupation to accomplish the transformation of the whole system to democracy. The same result occurred in Japan, though there the nuclear attacks did, indeed, also directly end the resistence.
The Shootout! this weekend on the History Channel was about the Tet offensive. One on the speakers interviewed mentioned an interesting fact that there was no "Pearl Harbor" to rally public support for that war. Well, we have had our 9/11, and the gov still insists on fighting a PC "war" on terror. How many more Americans have to die before we fight to win?
I am afraid it will take at least another 9/11 before this country can muster the guts to really take it to the Islamofascists. In spades.
It has nothing to do with the theology of Christianity. It has to do with the replacement of Islam which is necessary to end the threat of the barbarians. What would you replace Islam with? Humanism? Replacing religion with purely rational pap will not take with a population that has not grown up in the Northeastern US suburbs and gone to Harvard. It is not realistic to determine to send them all to Harvard. Forcible conversion is far superior to genocide which is the rational alternative for removing the threat from our children's future.
You do not understand even a little bit the threat that Islam poses to the existence of yourself and to Christianity, and to Buddhism, and to everything else.
But they all have one characteristic in common .... they are all Muslims.
One day our weakness will be traced back to our loss of faith as a nation. While we bussied ourselves with dismantling mangers during Christianity's second most holy day, and outlawing every other public display of Christianity, and were reveling in sexual promiscuity and vice of every kind, and passing laws to protect this vice under the pretense of "rights", the muslims were still busy bowing to their 'god', and their koranic hatred for Christians, Jews and 'infidels' festered. Their religion provides for them a great source of energy and fuel to stoke their Christian/Jew/infidel hating traditions, while Western faith turned from Christ to Darwinsm, secularism, politics, drugs and sex; in other words, 'humanism'. Hence, we have developed a spiritual blindness that prevents us from seeing the depth and breadth of the evils and dangers of islam. When God decreases evil increases, so we will never defeat islam without God and our Faith.
We think that technology will conquer them, or perhaps a smooth 'dailogue' with their evil leaders, along with concessions, will sooth their hatred and allow them to peacefully coexist with us. Of course none of this will work. Evil is not appeased. Until the West has its spiritual eyes open again, through a conversion back to Jesus Christ and the Christian faith, I believe there will remain in our societies a deadly inability to even see the face of our enemy, let alone defeat him. The face of islam is the face of Lucifer, who loves to mock the true God by taking the religion He founded and inverting it, and making it his own.
You wouldn't have to replace Islam with Christianity, if they were crushed and felt that Allah would not protect them.
They would abandon it themselves.
I think we will - however it's going to take a Great Awakening. There is, unfortunately one way for that to happen - and that is another horrific attack. It's coming and when it does, I think most liberals will throw away their flimsy liberal "convictions" and become rabid hawks. They will play the "hawkier than thou" role. Most of their liberal "convictions" are not convictions at all - but mere hot air blather.
Read the book "Do As I Say" and you will realize that most liberals do not really believe what they spout.
A murderous attack on America will send those phony convictions to the trash heap and these same liberals will be screaming for muslim blood.
At least I hope so.
While we do need to have the will to win to be able to prevail, we also need the willpower to not become another butchering country that kills indiscriminately.
They would not likely abandon their religion, even if crushed. You do not understand the abject fatalism of the mussulmans. They will go inert and lethargic for a time, perhaps a generation, perhaps several, but they will not give up their religion just because they failed to conquer. And a new Fever will eventually sweep through them again and the cycle will peak once again with death with destruction throughout the world. This is the history and future of Islam.
And the Left thinks this isn't a war against Evil.
A murderous attack... like 9-11?
