Downfall coming through coalition of Islamists and Marxists?

'If we're going to get a grip on this, we have to know their narrative and understand it'

A noted specialist on Islamic law and ideology from the Center for Security Policy, who has been cited as an expert for the Pentagon, says a coalition of Islamists and Marxists is working to destroy the United States.

The comments come from Stephen Coughlin, a lecturer for leading Department of Defense institutions such as the Naval War College, Marine Corps HQ-Quantico and for the FBI. Coughlin is a retired major in the U.S. Army reserves and was assigned to USCENTCOM, with a military intelligence specialty.

His assignments included the Pentagon’s National Military Joint Intelligence Center, the National Security Council’s Interagency Perception Management Threat Panel and the intelligence staff of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, so he has the credentials required for such assessments.

He recently addressed the Northern Virginia Chapter of ACT! for America, where he quoted terrorist Carlos the Jackal, who said, “Only a coalition of Islamists and Marxists can destroy the United States.” Thus, Coughlin said, “If we’re going to get a grip on this, we have to know their narrative and understand it. We know that when the other side has language that’s locked into doctrine, we need to hold them to it.”

He said, too, that the “lone wolf” jihadists can inflict damage.

He cited the case of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, killed during a confrontation with police.

Tsarnaev reportedly sent a text message to his mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaev, saying he was “ready to die for Islam.” ABC News Radio reported that his surviving brother and fellow suspect told investigators both “were ready to die.” According to The Christian Post, “Dzhokhar Tsarnaev indicated that his older brother hated America and Christianity, especially for the wars in

Both ideologies need to destroy western civilization and are willing to work with diverse groups to accomplish that main goal.

Both groups believe they, and they alone, will be in charge when the smoke clears.

There's no way you can merge communism and islam, but both groups, broadly speaking, are TOTALITARIAN in outlook and behavior. Both use the same leadership principles ~ a top strong man, his council, their army ~

Classically these entities are eventually defeated or frittered away through intrigue and conspiracy within the ranks of the army.

In more modern times the permanent bureaucracy tends to be the agency of destruction ~ we saw that in the disintegration of the East Bloc, and then the Soviet Union.

China is following a similar path but they have a far longer history of accommodating TOTALITARIANISM than does the West. That's why we still have the top strong man, his council, their army ~ but we also have a nearly independent financial, industrial and consumer products sector.

China for all its current prosperity is still just 15 minutes away from utter disaster ~ virtually 100% of the industrial sector workers have part time jobs! There's still no reliable large scale oil source to keep it going. More than half the people continue to live in traditional Chinese villages surrounded by pigs, ducks, rice paddies, lots of dirt and poop in jars and piles.

The Chinese are well prepared to continue living in near subhuman conditions ~ and that acts as an incredible drag on the existing order all the way to the top.

As a lesson Sun Yat Sen undertook 50 different 'rebellions' or full scale local wars before he could overthrow the totally discredited and despised Manchu regime!

BTW, that wasn't all the rebellions ~ other guys were holding rebellions as well as his movement ~ with fully equipped armies wandering about, etc. When the regime collapsed there was a degree of warlordism as the Chinese pulled the of government back on THEIR TRACK ~ Sun was the President of what seemed to be utter chaos for a good long while.

Still between Sun and today China went through numerous upheavals and is probably better off today than it has been for several thousand years. They are still loath to give up TOTALITARIAN methods.

Noteworthy in all this they've identified islam as a competitor and are exterminating it ~ while appearing to cave on the spread of Christianity.

So, about the leftwingtards in the West ~ their attraction to islam is simple. It's another TOTALITARIAN philosophy that has a track record of some degree of success. At the same time most of its adherents live in utter poverty surrounded by jars and piles of poop, with chickens and cattle wandering about, and what seems to be a plentitude of feuds and murder. The Leftwingtards probably imagine they can improve on this ~ (Bwahahahahaha)

Doesn’t mean that Arabs have not tried to merge Communism and Islam; after all, Saddam Hussein modeled himself on Stalin to a great degree. Arab Socialism is more insidious, being based on National Socialism (yes, Nazism).

In part. Socialism hadn’t been called what it is back in Nebuchadnezzar’s day, and Saddam was an overt proponent of Islamic socialism.
