    Hulagu Khan had a similar problem back in the 1250’s. I don’t think anybody has the stomach to solve the problem like he did. (anybody taller than the axle of a cart was killed) He turned the Tigris River both black and red. It took Baghdad about 700 years to regain the population it had and they never bothered the Mongols in the last 8 centuries.

    I don’t suspect that he sent a strongly worded letter or hashtag to Al-Musta’sim....just submit or die. The rest is history. Islam was flung back about 1000 years and never has recovered.

    The Mongol destruction today would be like someone taking every book and computer hard drive in the world and destroying them. Then lining up every professional, every scholar and every scientist and killing them and their families. Then they would come back two or three weeks after and killed anybody that was picking up the bodies or around the city.

    The Mongols were apex predators. The muslims respected that......

    I agree completely. The border needs to be secured. Any immigrants should be sponsored and not given any social welfare , Medicaid , housing or EBT cards. They must have a job and the sponsor is responsible for the immigrant. They must speak English and take civics.

    I’m an American of Hispanic descent. Majored in biochemistry and I guess was lucky figuring out cause and effect.

    Your comments say more about you than the idiots in the walmart parking lot. You realize that “Mexicans” are the majority in San Antonio. 8 uncles and my dad were in the armed forces. I made sure my son would never join because of what I saw happen to my dad after he was wounded.

    A booby trap blew up (cause) and tore most of his right leg off (effect). VA and DOD tried to screw him over and he STILL loved the Marine Corps. My kid is never dying for the Uniparty and traitors sucking the life out of our country.

    Try to think about what you sound like when you lump people together. You’re being manipulated and the Uniparty and bureaucrats are laughing at us.

    Liberals love to try to smear us and our warriors and cast us as as cruel and criminal as our enemies.

    I think we burned a few cities and have done our fair share of dealing death and destruction to our enemies.

    We do seem to prosecute our armed forces for varying from the ROE more than some. I agree that if I was fighting Americans, I'd think about surrender... If I was an American getting over run with muslims. I don't think I'd surrender and would probably fight to the end.

    That's the upside of treating prisoners well. Of course the Mongols were my favorite in dealing with muslims. They didn't "treat" any prisoners, any women and any children taller than the axle of a cart. They just asked them if they give up and if not....well then you never got a second chance. We somehow are under the impression that putting men in prison for a couple of years will change their ideology... and that's where I think we fail.

    But I think all sides in war are capable of acts that would make me puke. As a veteran I'm sure that you've met men that were capable and possibly did some violent and deadly things to the enemy. I never served and only have fathers, uncles and cousins that I speak to about such things. I read a lot and know that we might have done things in the distant and not so distant past that involved civilian carnage and was chalked up to "cost of war". I agree with them, that civilian casualties are a "cost of war" and if my father or relatives are saved by their deaths...oh well. Light them up. But that's just me. Your mileage may differ.

    it’s full of liberal claptrap about how “ committed atrocities all the time” so the Japanese atrocities were just no worse than ours.

    It's war. I have no idea what I would do to an enemy that butchered and maimed my brothers in arms. But I'm sure that I wouldn't want to explain it 1000's of miles away and years after the event.

    Men do things in war that are horrible and unspeakable in any other place that is not in the theater of war. Do you really want to know what men do in war? My father fought in Latin America, Lebanon, Indonesian and Vietnam. He never spoke about combat except one time when someone mentioned that a "young boy" had been killed I think in El Salvador or Vietnam.. and he just said, "young boys can kill you just as easily as young men. They can shine your shoes and blow you up." If you don't kill them, your men can die.

    He said that there was a difference between killing in war and murder. Each man has to answer to his maker for what is in his heart at the time he kills the enemy.

    I am fairly certain that men being men, we had men that mutilated enemies, killed civilians and all the horrible things that we can imagine. But I can't put myself in the mindset of being in combat for years and watching my best friends turned to dog meat and mutilated. I am glad that I haven't had to make those choices and I pray for the men that have been put in these situations.

    I don't think that American men have a monopoly on altruistic behavior in combat. I think Americans scare the crap out of most other men in combat because of our aggressive nature , discipline and tactics. We also tend to allow men to surrender. That's a huge thing in combat.

    Actual wounded people (combat type) bleed. I’m not suggesting the “victims” were NOT wounded, I would prefer to have seen actual proof that they were. Obviously you have NOT been in combat.

    They were wounded. Some through and through to extremities, some from over penetration , some by ricochets, some with lacerations from glass, some with bruising from falling.

    Don’t minimize this. I’ve seen GSWs for 25 years. Some of them bleed a lot and some of them are odd and the patient doesn’t even know he’s been shot in an area because of distracting injuries and until she/he’s undressed and rolled over and looked over.

    9mm and .223 make different wounds due to velocity, distance and what the patient was wearing.

    Dick Vomer to day10

    My father passed away at home from lung cancer. He knew he was dying and was grateful that he was allowed to put his affairs in order, take care of my mother, and die at home instead of “all alone in a jungle or battlefield”.

    We talked about it and he was satisfied with how things shook out. He saw his grandkids hug and kiss him, he saw my sister and I get married and I truly think he had nothing but thanks for the life he was granted.

    I coped with his loss by holding my wife and crying for a couple of minutes when he was diagnosed and then just took his example. I lived my life and loved my family.

    We all cope in our own way. I initially worked about 21 night shifts in a row in order to numb the pain. That bone aching exhaustion is great for grief. Then one day is a little better. You never forget and I truly believe that my father lives on in me. My sense of humor, work ethic, sarcasm, choice of recreation, love of my kids/wife and on and on... He lives on in you also.

    That’s what I’ve told my kids and I truly hope it helps mine when I pass.

    Dick Vomer to waterhill

    I’m not privy to any special information. I have no DOD clearance and my only insight comes from a love of history and the study of human nature (philosophy).

    I’m talking about looking around and realizing that all we need to see is what started WW1. A stupid series of events and treaties that flipped like stupid dominoes killing millions of men and changing history for the next centurty. In 1000 years I think that we will be recorded as one continuous war started in WW1.

    The mideast anarchy and fake countries, including Israel, the spread of communism because of a german general Ludendorff trying to spread anarchy in Russia so he let Lenin go by train to russia and the rest is history. The first world war is still being fought. It pits the forces of the state versus those of the individual.

    Our children’s children’s children might be around for the new stability. But it will never end. Please let your kids know that war is the normal state of man and those that “hope and pray” for peace, well... that’s all they’ll do. Because man is essentially self centered and capable of the most heinous crap. Our kids haven’t learned a single history lesson about what real war is and when they confront it, they’ll cr#p their pants.

    Not one history class in this country’s public schools and most private schools goes over anything but the most casual fashion the Rape on Nanking, the German Blitz into Russia and the subsequent revenge berserk warfare the Russians did to the Germans. The murders, the wholesale rapes and killing of women,infants, children and all forms of life.

    We weep for 10-20 civilian casualties and can’t even fathom what the MILLION!!! of Russian civilian casualties were in WW2. Not to mention the German, Japanese, Chinese and Europeans. MILLIONS. One man’s death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic, eh?

    or that there were battles where 10’s of thousands of men died/wounded in a single day. DIED..not wounded.

    That entire cities are destroyed to rubble and no rock band or peace loving faculty member will be able to tsk tsk about the carnage.

    I just look up at the sky after reading sometimes and think of what a beautiful and great country we have. How we assume that war will never touch us and how we are one month of concentrated terrorism from locking down everything and starting to really go totalitarian.

    Trump should scare the cr#p out of everybody. He is the mildest form of the strong man available. His opponent Hillary is a feeble kleptocrat with delusions of grandeur and will only hasten the rise of other strong men.

    Yeah, I said “men”. When it’s survival of the country and wartime...it’s going to be a man.

    I’m pretty sure with my limited time span that I won’t see the denouement but my son and daughters will. I pray for them and our family.

    But we are no different than any other Republic or society.

    Dick Vomer to VerySadAmerican
    For some reason ALL of the world’s leaders, except maybe for Putin, are pro islam. And they’re pro bringing muslims into their country. The world is bowing down to islam. Islam is taking over.

    I'm glad you've noticed also.

    I think that your comment "ALL" except Putin is very telling.

    When all the world's aflame, the scared people will turn to the strong man. I don't think it's a coincidence that Russia is now in the mideast controlling the spigot of millions of muslims into the EU.

    If Putin wants eastern europe back in the communist fold, and he does, all he needs to do is create a climate that will have people begging for Russian defense.

    Remember that Putin is labelled the "defender of Christianity" in Syria when he defended a Christian city from muslim Syrian forces that were backed by THE UNITED STATES. So we have Russia defending Christians and Obama pushing for muslims.

    Putin is letting the mideast slide into chaos and can literally flood the EU with muslims to disrupt their society on a level not seen since the last time the muslims did this.

    They are tools for the communists...the muslims are.

    Putin will declare that the Dardanelles are vital to Russian interests and destabilize Turkey. When he invades to secure the straits then the area will be "stabilized".

    Up north he will protect Kallingrad Oblast's russian populace from the "threat" of NATO and the other Baltic countries and roll into an area near Poland.

    Do we think anybody will defend the Baltics? Will American boys die for Turkey? Nope... I don't think so.

    I'm just hoping for Mussolini's exit for all the political elites in this country when we go to war.

    It's all a scam and the democrats and republicans don't even care if we know anymore. It just doesn't matter because they feel invulnerable to any legal prosecution. They are all above the law that controls us, proles.

    I won't be around for it, but I can rest assured that a storm is on the horizon, it's best to be prepared.

    I’m just tired of having to “sing” all the responses. It’s like an episode of “glee”. Even the Lord’s Prayer is sung. I want to go to church, not glad hand, not hold my hands up and not have to sing. I look at all the men in the church and very few are involved because it’s so odd and I think effeminate.

    Yeah, I know that men sing. but I’d just like to go to a mass like I did in my youth and listen, respond and learn.

    As far as the politics of the church... it’s communist and homosexual friendly. Anyone who denies that are truly drinking the kool-aid. That’s why I left initially.

    But the words of my father brought me home...”the church is the Lord’s home, the Catholic faith is the Lord’s gift. But men are flawed and should not be confused with what you know in your soul to be good and true.”

    The communists can destroy the “church” but not my faith. The current pathetic pope and his little cronies make me sick, but I look at all the gifts the church has given the world and realize that they are lost and they will ultimately pay the price, all I have to do is believe, live my life as if the Lord is at my shoulder, ask him to forgive my sinful and despicable acts against him and pray that he has the grace to give my that forgiveness.

    It’s all in his hands and he knows how it all will shake out. Without the Lord I am truly lost and pray with all my heart that I have done enough to live forever in peace with my family and that they find happiness and the Lord’s grace as well.

    Just try to remember that you and your loved ones need to try to look at all the media and forms of entertainment as a way to manipulate and distract you from things that are real and important. Entertainment is good , I believe all things are neither good or bad but merely “are” and that it’s what we do or perceive that makes them ‘good or bad”.

    There are studies out that show our “free will” is not as free as we think and that a bias is built in as a defense mechanism. So your thoughts on flexibility are neither good or bad but a method in which you can adapt and survive in a changing environment.

    The rants and pounding of the chest as to “what I’m gonna do” might not be productive. It neither changes anyone’s opinion (but lets your enemies know yours) or changes the macro-societal changes. The key is survival of you and your family. If it comes down to bad scenarios, well then it’s going to be nasty. I’ve seen civil disorders, my grandfather fought in a civil war as well as a religious/political war and NOBODY gets out unscathed.

    BUT... your thoughts I think are correct..being “flexible” allows you to not be programmed into simple algorithms and increases you and your family’s survival.. I think.

    take care my friend, good luck.

    Nobody wants to start or join a Constitutional Military due to fact that the Media Leftist Militia have so successfully marginalized them in the ramp up to martial law. And believe me martial law is what the left are after because in America there is no other realistic way in terms of a check mating move.

    "joining" any "group" is a death sentence. The first up against the wall will be the leftist radicals, followed by all the "Oath Keepers", "Militias", whatever patriotic group you THINK is going to make a difference.

    Just make sure you educate your family. That's going to keep them and you alive. Learning skills that will be useful in medicine, outdoor activity, crafts, farming, mechanical and electrical work... etc...

    When the time comes it'll be to late to prepare. Read "War of the Flea", "On Guerilla war", "Out of the Mountains". Just for information purposes of course.

    Dick Vomer your view of things is bizarre. Russia is not communist and China is communist in name only these days but that is besides the point.

    My view of the governments in Russian and China is realistic and I believe far from "bizarre". Central control of the proletariat/workers and central planning with the well connected elites being the main beneficiaries due to their "greater needs" combined with their "greater ability" is present in both empires.

    The Chinese tell them what to do, where to live, how many children to have and have the most basic of all control....who lives and who dies. As for the Russians.

    Please read a biography of Putin. It's a great read. He is and was a true believer in the dream of a Russian/Communist world wide empire. When he is cornered or humiliated PERSONALLY, he lashes out.

    If you think that either entity is remotely controlled by the "voice" or "concern" of the "people", I am afraid that you may be misinformed.

    America and it's citizens need to realize that we are in an ideological total war with communism. It adapted when Ronald Reagan broke the bank, but if you think about it, no leader was imprisoned, no penalty was paid and nobody died as a result of the "change" in governments in the "Soviet Union". They just blended into the reboot of the new wave and carried on. Look at the green movement and you'll see who? Some guy with a blotch mark on his forehead. Go around and look at the old party apparatchiks to see who ended up hung on a lamp-post or shot behind their dacha. None... then all they did was blend in and resume the old game. When the Soviet Union dissolved the "war" wasn't over. It merely morphed into another form.

    As for China, they think in terms of generational conflicts. Three or four generations down the road. Like I said before, when the historians look back at this period of time in 1000 or 1500 years and time is compressed, the 20th century is going to be a long continuation of the First World War. Without that war we would have no mid-east "crisis" or Israel. We would not have communism take hold in Russia. The maps of Europe, Near East would look so much different.

    That's what I meant by "the long game" and by Russia and China being "communists". They are and we are being led by communists as well in the executive branches of our present administration. Communism isn't bound by borders, my friend. You can't just over run it and occupy it. It is a virus that changes but is basically driven to control everyone except those at the apex of the food chain.

    I think being well informed and stepping back from the media propaganda machines help give some perspective.

    I’d rather have a robot than an idiot. I went to a movie theater and the person at the window took forever, the ticket taker was nice and the concession operators were slow, sometimes lazy and very inefficient...... I just looked at them and told my wife ,”robot, robot, robot”.

    I could get rid of 75% of their employees and have a couple more security, one manager, one robot supervisor, one IT person and one or two robot/kiosk tenders, possibly even robots to clean up after each show.

    No worries about scheduling, workers comp, insurance, payroll, etc...

    Robots.

    Eventually, US + Russia + China vs islam.

    nope

    Russia+China+Islam versus US.

    Russia is playing the long game. Please remember that they're communist. China is communist...our POTUS is a communist.

    Islam is a tool to demoralize our armed forces, drain our treasury and our universities are educating 3 generation of leaders that hate our country.

    Russia is fighting like all eastern countries fight....they attack, withdraw and make you react... repeat and rinse. Only in the west do we just line up and fight.

    It's an ideological war for the world. It's never stopped since the first world war and in 1000 years the years from 1912 to whenever are going to be seen as one continuous ideological war between the individual and the state.

    I'll be dead and even my kids might be gone but there is still at least one more world wide war in our future. It's always when we are weak that other countries mistake that for cowardice as opposed to not wanting war.

    Peace is an aberration in the human condition, war is our natural state. Tell your sons that he may not be interested in war but war will be interested in him....(quote stolen from a smart person).

    c’mon... this makes them “bad”. Have you ever been to Carthage.... it’s not there. How about Nineveh? They were HUGE cities ...guess what the conquerors did to them... same as it ever was, same as it ever was.

    How about taking a city, killing every man, woman, dog, or cat. Lining up the male children and everyone taller than the hub of a wagon wheel, killing them. Plow up the town, burn it, salt the earth and spread thorny plants....

    People are the same in any time throughout history. We will probably or should I say, inevitably follow the same fate as other empires. Everyone thinks that we (Americans) are somehow going to be around as an organized empire for a long time. I’m sure the Assyrians never saw their end coming, the Romans, the Mongols etc....

    We are heading towards a world wide open conflict and there is NOTHING anybody can do about it. Might not happen this year or next, but China and Russia are positioning themselves to get a head start. All the women, homosexuals, future yoga instructors, college hopefuls that are in the armed forces are going to figure out that “helping others” and “war making” are two different things.

    nope..the last revolution was in 1910-1917 or so and then the Cristero War followed...oh and you are rigtht.

    It turned into a Socialist/Communist country. That’s what Mexico is and only our open border keeps the country afloat. It is a sh#thole and we would do them a favor by getting them to just implode and start chopping heads.

    My grandfather fought in the Revolution and with the Catholics in the Cristero War. He had his US citizenship document and a portrait of JFK on the kitchen wall.

    They are communist and the PRI/PAN/PDR are the three legs of a crap filled triangle that is essentially an organized criminal organization. Communism can only survive when there is a gullible capitalistic society nearby to be a parasite on. That’s why they’re crapping their pants.

    The only good thing or advice from the Mexican Government we should take is on Chiclets, Marijuana and Donkey Shows.

    I can’t disagree. If I had control of our nukes I would eliminate 1.6 billion islamic morons. They are too MFing stupid to get along with others. Eff them.

    Life is too short to deal with suicidal mental midgets.

    FUislam.

    I just think that the internet and robotics are the game changers or "hinge points" in this era.

    We can SEE that our leaders generally are not very well informed, obvious manipulators, corrupt (cynically left to be that way) and only concerned with the fact that they want power.

    Like I said before, we are heading for a world wide conflict. I explained this to my son just yesterday. Man's nature is war... peace is an aberration.

    It is funny how everyone thinks that "this time it's different"... "this time the war/economy/natural disaster will be dealt with...because we are so enlightened and smart.

    I'm sure Woodrow Wilson thought he was smart.. Herbert Hoover/Roosevelt thought they were economic geniuses... and the Titanic will NEVER sink. hahahahahaha.

    We are so arrogant to think global and profound change isn't coming and we have very little control except on how we deal with it.

    I think THAT is the main promise and gift of Christianity.

    But that's for another thread and topic.

    Take care brother, we live in interesting times. If you have sons...concern yourselves with war, because war will be concerned with them.

    It took about 8 generations including the 30 Years War and a couple of million deaths in Germany. with 10’s of thousands in France, England and Spain.

    I’m afraid you’ve never heard of the Protestant reformation.

    Horny muslims, yep.

    Idiotic ritualized murder of 100’s of thousands, yep

    Intolerance of any other religion or even a disagreement on the orthodoxy warrants death...yep

    30 years of wars in a region with MILLIONS of deaths in Germany, 10’s of thousands in France, Spain and England...yep.

    ooopss. got the Christian and Muslim facts mixed up on that last one.

    Islam is going to be reformed to tolerate other religions but it will be at the cost of millions of lives, vast fortunes and a reshaping of the forms of countries in the Mideast.

    Look up the The Münster Rebellion and read the particulars about how they took “Christianity” and what good Lutherans and Catholics did to them. It makes for some really neat reading.

    In fact I didn’t know that the Germans had passed laws indicating how long someone was to be tortured BEFORE they were allowed to die for certain religious offenses.

    Yeah, 30 Year War and then about another 150 years before we Christians decided that maybe we can live without killing someone that worships Christ differently.

    And before you blast me about loving Muslims. I have no “feelings” one way or another about the followers of the prophet. I think that they’d kill me and my family in a second and they risk the entire world going Mongol on them. If Iran makes the mistake of going nuke on anybody, well then it will be a repeat of what Hulagu Khan did to Al-Musta’sim in Baghdad. Killed every man, woman, child, dog and cat. Destroyed all their scholars, writers, artists, and every single book was put in the river that turned black from the ink. That was followed by the killing of about 200-400,000 people that turned the river red.

    History is great. We are heading for another World War. I’ll probably be dead by then but bank on it. The Russians are fighting the “Deep War” with multiple attacks along multiple fronts that keep the West on the defensive and China knows it’s going to have to deal with Asia and the Pacific sooner than later.
