Let Them Kill Each Other
American Thinker ^ | 06/16/2014 | Mike Konrad

Posted on 06/16/2014 6:47:49 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

I know, I know, the recent ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Levant) gains have everyone scared. No doubt, the Islamophilic administration will want to step in, and save Islam from itself once again. Let me advocate a course of action that will make sense to all sides in America; the left and right; from militarists to pacifists: Let the Muslims kill each other.

After the administration blundered on Benghazi, on the Arab Spring, and Syria, Heaven itself has afforded it one last chance to set itself right. It is almost impossible for the administration to screw it up. All it has to do is nothing.

Yes, Nothing!

ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Levant) is presently a large group of thugs with guns. They have no navy, no air force, except for a few captured helicopters, which they will soon break. The only ones they can threaten are their fellow Muslims. If they take over Iraq, who cares? They will soon reduce the Levant to the seventh century. And this is a problem to us? OK, oil prices may spike for a while, but they are going to need to sell their oil because they’ve got nothing else to produce for export and can’t produce any of the fruits of modern industry. Meanwhile, the high prices will encourage domestic drilling and production of our nearly boundless reserves held in shale deposits, to the point where we will become a major oil exporter ourselves.

These mujahadeen are incapable of maintaining the weapons they already have. Weapons need upkeep. Weapons have to be oiled, cleaned, and upgraded. Upkeep interferes with raping, pillaging, and chopping off heads. Within two years, they will be slaughtering each other with scimitars and rusty AK-47s.

Iraq's president, Maliki has asked for US assistance. Oh really?

OK, but I'd like to see the government kill a few more of the ninja clad ISIS butchers.

It seems to be all one way at the moment.

But they are not just killing each other. Mosul is the historic Nineveh, the city to which Jonah was sent by God. St. Thomas the Apostle went to Nineveh, and that city is the Christian center of Iraq. So it’s not just Sunni/Shia. It’s Islam against the world.

Yep, I have yet to hear any option for us that sounds good.

The Iranians have way more to lose here than we do.

The problem is that these guys being successful emboldens Islamists around the world. And they won’t be just attacking other Muslims, as the news from Kenya this morning shows.

Otherwise you are quite right that these guys are not a real military threat.

Works for me. This has all the makings of a potential major shite vs. Sunni sectarian conflict — which is primarily why Obama is so reluctant to get involved. He can’t help one side without becoming the immediate and total enemy of the other side, and that he dare not do.

But, hey. This is one time I can actually support his indecision making. If your two worst enemies are beating each other to a pulp, the smart thing to do is step back and let them duke it out.

One side or the other will win. Whichever side wins, will then take all the resources it has conquered, use the resources to rearm themselves, and then turn on Israel, Europe, and us. We must either convert or destroy all the militants, regardless of whatever corner of Muslim theology they happen to choose to reside.

Unless we are willing to enter and commit mass slaughter by whatever means that far outweighs what’s going on there now, we have nothing to contribute. And then we will face the recriminations of the rest of the world who still insists Islam is a wonderful religion that we need to understand more deeply. Like the Brits.

There’s plenty of damage that can be done with AK-47’s. And as far as ISIS, I’m sure the $490 MM they looted from the banks they overran will buy any number of party-favors from any number of willing sellers.

We are on the upslope of this wave of sectarian violence. Not the peak, not the tail end. Sect after sect has been encouraged and is bound to continue. These societies have no way to defend themselves against this and our military isn’t set up to do so either. It’s a crappy situation but we will have to wipe out whole towns to have any effect.

It’s always about the money the military contractors making welling weapons of war and the donations (kickbacks) to the politicians that are their buddies. Wouldn’t it be a wonderful world if PACs, special interest groups, and lobbyists didn’t exist?

I agree 100%.

I was thinking when I saw the Bagdad Govt tell the people to take up arms. . . . . . . . . HMMMMMMMMMMMM. . . . .
What if they had none, are you listening Charley Rangel? And others?
Now maybe some will see why we need and want our own assault weapons, and ammo with large magazines.
I hope we never need them but I want them. Guns are like parachutes if you need one and don't have one you won't need one again. . . .

These savages are probably already in the United States preparing a grand surprise party for us.

The Dept. Of homeland security is a big joke.They can’t even protect our southern border from an invasion of kids and yet we’re supposed to depend on them to defend us from these cold blooded killers.We’re in serious trouble.

This article presents a viewpoint that is incredibly short-sighted:

“Let the Muslims kill each other”

1. They’re going to do that anyway.
2. There are muslim regimes that are tolerant of Israel, and those that openly encourage violence against Israel. The present Iraqi government is the former...the previous and the next Iraqi government is the later.
3. The price of oil is highly dependant on mideast stability. Do not take comfort in fracking...oil is fungible, thus American oil will be priced along with the rest of the world.

I agree with you. Our general impoverishment and the national tilt left are largely due to our aping of British Empire pretensions. That is not even to address the higher costs - our wounded and killed. One of ours is worth more than all of theirs.

Kenya, Somalia, Nigeria, are not the Middle East. Here Islam is not seeking to maintain and “purify” its nutjob adherents.

THERE it is seeking to expand. BIG difference.

Nah. Kicking Saddam’s butt and exercizing our military was a good idea. It scared them.

But then that nitwit Bush and his nutjob advisors decided we could make a purse out of a pig’s ear by converting these troglodytes into democrats.

BAD mistake. The OCCUPATION caused the casualties and big expenses, not the initial conquest.

Moral of the story when dealing with Muslims. Attack with shock and awe, beat them bloody, then pull out. Message delivered. But it is IMPOSSIBLE to help these idiots over there as long as they follow Islam.

No need to kill these people - killing's a hobby for them. They've got a dreadful culture - no women to speak of - and anything 'fun' is against the law. Killing's all they've got. Why should we dirty our hands in Arab filth?

I finally reached that point this weekend. I have clung to Kennedy's "....Bear any burden.." promise hoping the light of liberty would shine in that hellhole.

We gave the Iraqis the best shot they would ever get to emerge from the dark ages. They have decided which way they want to go. Now there will be fewer of them.

You are correct. No matter if the sunni win or the shiite win the worst people will win. They are all moslems. The wisdom in the article is that they are killing each other off leaving fewer that we will have to kill. Any time a moslem dies it is a good thing. If he dies while killing more moslems it is a great thing.

The national lines in these countries were drawn sometime before WW 2. Redraw the lines in Iraq into Sunni, Shiite and Kurd. Draw these lines far out in the desert away from cities. Give everyone 30 days to get where you want to be. Any group who crosses these line will be take out by a drone or cruise missile.

NEXT problem.

Just another bunch of Islamic nuts - killing each other but a lot more wary of offending us.

Its much easier to conquer territory than to occupy it. Occupiers, regardless of motivation soon wear out their welcome and a people only changes its thinking when it really wants to.

When it comes to muzzies nothing will ever be enough. Their objective is world domination.

If they are not fighting themselves then they will be fighting us somewhere closer to home.

I hope our military and intelligence communities are thinking the unthinkable and I hope the prevention of the next attack starts at the mexican border.

“You are correct, sir.”

Yes, not one more drop of our blood or penny of our treasury. Let these Mofo cretins go about killing each other. This country has not been in a single war since WWII that has been ultimately worth the cost. Further, I am tired of the US stationing troops all over the world so the a$$holes in whose countries they are located can have a “free” police force to protect them. If Germany wants us to keep troops there, they should pay the entire bill. Ditto for South Korea and Japan. Keep our airbases, but $hitcan the rest of it.
