WE ARE IN A CIVILIZATIONAL STRUGGLE AGAINST ISLAM.EXCERPT #2:
THIS DOESN'T MEAN WE ARE IN A WAR WITH EVERY SINGLE MUSLIM ANY MORE THAN WW2 WE WERE AT WAR WITH EVERY SINGLE GERMAN OR EVEN EVERY SINGLE NAZI.
BUT JUST AS WE WERE AT WAR WITH NAZISM THEN, WE ARE AT WAR WITH ISLAM NOW.
THE SOONER A MAJORITY OF US ACCEPT THIS THE BETTER. THE FAILURE TO ACCEPT THIS HAS LEAD US TO WASTE TIME AND TREASURE ON TACTICS AND STRATEGIES THAT CANNOT HELP US WIN - LIKE "DEMOCRATIZING" AFGHANISTAN, A GOAL I ONCE SHARED.
IF WE WANT TO TURN THE MUSLIMS THERE INTO PEOPLE WHO CAN LIVE UNDER DEMOCRACY AND THE RULE OF SECULAR LAW, THEN WE NEED TO TURN THE MUSLIMS THERE AWAY FROM ISLAM.
http://astuteblogger.blogspot.com/2011/05/ww4-is-really-return-to-real-ww1.htmlMY RECORD ON THIS IS CLEAR.
This does NOT mean exterminate Muslims. This means LIBERATE them from islamism. More than 1 billion people are enslaved to this hideous ideology. We must liberate them.
CRUSHING Nazism didn't mean exterminating all Nazis or Germans; it did mean eradicating Nazism and bringing the worst perpetrators of Nazi atrocities to justice - summary or military.
So it must be with islamism.
Or we will lose.
THERE IS NO PLACE FOR THE KILLING OF INNOCENTS - OR FOR ANY EXTRA-JUDICIAL OR EXTRA-MARTIAL KILLING.
- OUT SIDE THE THEATER OF WAR AND WITHOUT A JUDICIAL PROCEEDING KILLING IS MURDER AND MURDER IS EVIL.
- KILLING IS ACCEPTABLE IN THE THEATER OF WAR AND AFTER JUDICIAL PROCEEDINGS (FOR CRIMES WHICH HAVE THE DEATH PENALTY AT THE TIME OF THE CRIME WAS COMMITTED).
- UPDATE: RIGHT-WING TERRORIST GROUPS SHOULD BE HUNTED DOWN AND ERADICATED JUST LIKE WE ARE DOING WITH JIHADIST GROUPS.
HAVING THIS BLOG AND ARGUING THESE POINTS PROVES THAT I BELIEVE THAT WE NEED TO WAGE A NON-VIOLENT WAR OF IDEAS, AND CONVERT INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO HAVE EVIL CREEDS - NOT USE VIOLENCE AND KILL THEM.
Despite the fact that it is reasonable to presume acts of terror are committeds by jihadists - (because jihadists have committed more than 17,000 terrorist acts since 9/11/01) - I did not immediately assume this was an act of islamo-terrorism.
After the initial reports of an attack, I accepted the first reports that islamists had taken credit for it at face value.
This blog's first post on the attack posed islamist involvement as a question - with a question mark, and only after an islamist group took credit did we jump on the bandwagon.
We regret it.
