Are We Trading Our Country for a Sharia State?
Not only do military members, present and past, pay a heavy price for their efforts all over the world, they now face a government who is trying in every respect to chip away at benefits, reduce COLA increases, curtail pay increases and reduce the overall military by 20%. And they are doing this at a time when the world is rapidly becoming more dangerous. The Russian leader, Putin, takes Crimea away from the Ukraine and then he goes into Eastern Ukraine aiming to take that part of Ukraine under Russian control. Now Russia is moving into Syria to do what we should have done years ago. He supports Assad and bombs those we support to take down Assad. But then ISIS takes down a Russian private airliner with a bomb on board. Then Russian steps up activity with France when Paris gets hit by a terror attack. Turkey shoots down a Russian jet that entered Turkish airspace.We are seeing a Russian version of Manifest Destiny. It also mirrors the excuse Germany took under Hitler when countries were taken because they were either a part of old German lands or there are a number of German speaking citizens who reside in those countries who are being abused. But there are no Russian speaking people living in Syria. Russian just wants control of all the oil in the Middle East
It is rapidly becoming a new cold war that is slowly but surely becoming hot. Countries throughout history have used this approach when their economy began to falter. Create a need to invade other countries which permits the government to print more money so they can build a military base for waging war. Putin is just now undertaking a similar approach to mirror what was the Hitler Youth movement in Germany prior to WWII. I guess we will need to call it Putin’s Youth Movement. Hitler started his youth movement by claiming the youth of Germany needed to improve their physical health through organized exercise programs. But what eventually happened was these young people were indoctrinated through a propaganda and military training regimen. It only took Hitler about 4-5 years to begin sending young Germans to war. We will find out soon what the Putin Youth Movement is up to.
Another bothersome issue is terrorism. To say we should only fear radical Muslims is a political ploy to avoid confrontation. But when the twin towers fell as a result of terror committed by what we call radical Muslims, the entire Muslim world was overwhelmed with joy as they took to the streets in every Muslim nation in the world. There were millions of Muslims hitting the streets. I am not that naive to believe that the majority of Muslims are peaceful. If they supported the fall of the Twin Towers, it would not take much to incite them to march en mass against the West.
We need a military that is capable of meeting the challenge. I am not exactly sure that we can do it even now with our current strength since it was so difficult backing out of Iraq and Afghanistan. The result has been catastrophic. When I hear that dozens of people die each day due to sectarian violence and the Taliban are just biding their time waiting for our pre-announced withdrawal, it will not be long before those countries are back to where they started – hot beds of terrorist activity preparing for the war against the West. ISIS already has a presence in Afghanistan. Even Pakistan currently provides safe haven to those who want to kill us. Iran is a major fomenter of unrest in the entire Middle East. The Sunni versus Shiite problem is just as problematic as the fear they will find a way to attack us. Remember one of the primary features of the philosophical culture in the Middle East: An enemy of my enemy can temporarily be my friend. If you don’t think the Middle East is in explosion mode politically, you are an ostrich with his head in a hole and Muslim mania is going to poke a stick of dynamite up your backside and light it.
There are too many in this country who think the folks in the Christian Religions are infinitely more dangerous than those in the Muslim Religion. There is just one simple problem associated with that thinking. Christians do not want to behead those who do not become Christian but the Muslim most definitely want to bring your life to an end if you do not convert. And even if you convert, you will still be a second class citizen because you were not Muslim to begin with. And there is another interesting fact. When and if the Muslims take over, they will create a line for those who refuse to convert and the line will be for your beheading. But keep in mind that Jews and Christians will NOT be first in line because the Muslims hold that since Jews and Christians actually believe in the same God as Muslims, they are just misguided, while those who do not follow any religion will be first line since they are the ultimate infidel.
It is only a matter of time before we begin to see a tremendous amount of destruction to our infrastructure. Do you think we are immune to forest fires deliberately set or IEDs finding their way under any of our roadways or bridges rigged to collapse or railroads being blown up just before a passenger train arrives at that location or even worse, a train loaded with extremely hazardous material blown up in a US community? There are an infinite number of other ways to bring us to our knees. And we want to allow a porous border. Where do you think those terrorists are going to come from? They are already coming across our borders and as we have already witnessed the havoc that has happened as a result of homegrown terrorists. What we are about to witness is a terrorist on slot that will make Bill Ayres, his wife Mrs. Dorn and the rest of his terrorist group look like a kindergarten class.
If we do not heed the call and plan to protect ourselves by military force, we are going to have to ask the Israelis how they manage an every day assault on the livelihood of their nation. Peace talks are a travesty when one side is bent on annihilating the other at all cost primarily due to a fanatically driven unstoppable religious fervor. The Muslims are using Israel as a training run; we are next. What we are currently witnessing is the Muslim version of a religious crusade. We continue to treat this problem as though it is politically based. It is not. It is based on religious belief that is so intense that one is willing to strap on a suicide vest and give there life for the cause.
Very few remember or even realize that innocent Saddam Hussein was paying $25,000 to each family who provided a suicide bomber to the cause. And no one remembers that during the taking of Baghdad, the US forces found a school being used to manufacture suicide vests. The vests were brand new. But not once did any Iraqi use one of those vests against US forces. They were being sent to other countries for use in attacking Israeli targets. Saddam Hussein was providing the vests and also supporting the families of those suicide bombers. Only a religious fanatic would do such a thing. There is one more interesting fact. On the way to Baghdad, the most difficult and intense fighting encountered was when US forces happened upon an Al Qaeda training camp in Iraq – a camp that many American politicians claimed did not exist.
Enough said. We are in this war for the long hall just like the Inquisition of old. It lasted 700 years primarily to fight what they called heresy. It is considered heresy as far as Muslims are concerned and we are all infidels.
P.S. If you don’t believe that the Muslim faith is so dangerous then read this book: “The Complete Infidel’s Guide to the Koran.” You will be shocked to learn what you are missing.
