The Religion Gambit

Standard

An individual can hate all religions, mock them, criticize them and genuinely feel that religion is a destructive force that needs to be eliminated from society; for me, at least, it’s easy to understand those feelings because at some level I agree with all of them; but I also understand some basic truths about human nature. When you criticize or worse yet mock a person’s firmly held beliefs (about religion or any other subject) you set yourself up as a moral authority based ONLY on YOUR OWN firmly held beliefs, you become a hypocrite and you create a conflict that very seldom will end well.

It’s a zero-sum game that we all thoughtlessly engage in because, in the end, we humans are most times ruled by our egos, not by our intelligence, good judgement, humility or respect for others beliefs. Of course I am speaking in generalities here but anyone who is reading and judging this should have to admit that we are each the centers of our own universes and we (depending on our natures) either attempt, on a daily basis, to coexist with other people’s “universes” or find ways to set up conflicts with them.

CONFLICT:

To what end do we say “no you’re wrong and I’m right?” If speaking of strictly fact-based endeavors like the various branches of science and mathematics, right and wrong can usually be proven fairly easily but disagreements about more abstract areas of knowledge: things based on beliefs, theories, legends, superstitions or ancient writings will always produce more and possibly larger disagreement.

So, to what end do we argue about religion? To no good end and possibly, as was the case in France recently and in Denmark several years before, to a violent end.

The major problem in the religious world right now is, of course, radical Islam. It is not a problem that radical Muslims have their beliefs and moderate- and non-Muslems have their beliefs; the major problem is that, to the radicalized Muslim there is no room for disagreements, opposing opinions or even intelligent debate.

Radical Muslims have reduced their religion to the same level as the cockroach and termite worlds. Their objective is to mindlessly infest the world with their ideology and destroy whatever stands in their way. No conversation! No debate! No moderation or respect for others, not even for those who worship the same God but follow the Qur’an with a less violent, more civilized perspective.

What do you do when faced with a threat like radicalized Islam?

You don’t do as the United States tends to do and attempt to appease it.

You don’t take the incredibly stupid route like Charlie Hebdo has done by taunting and teasing it — oh yes, in a civilized society they had the RIGHT to do that but they had no end-game, no objective except to piss murderous radical Muslims off and hope there are a few writers and cartoonists left to write their friends epitaphs.

What you must do to beat radical Islam is work  hard to understand it: their temperament, their methods, their weaknesses, their manpower, the sources of their financing and supplies, and their physical locations. Then attack their financing and their supply chains, weakening and demoralizing them. Finally you must make a plan to relentlessly exterminate them, cell by cell. You are not, after all, dealing with civilized human beings, you are dealing with mutated cockroaches and termites trained in the use of high-tech weaponry.

Striking ISIS! It’s a GOOD Thing!

Standard

ISIS, Hammas, AlQueda, the Islamic Brotherhood: All of these and all of the other drooling, irrational forces that constitute the evil known as radical Islam need to be removed from civilized society; indeed they need to be removed from the world and allowed to travel to their lusted after “Paradise.”

These humanitarian acts of violence needs to be carried out before the insanely evil imams and clerics can convince even one more person that murdering innocent people in the name of a jealous, blood-thirsty, possibly insane prophet will make this, in any way, a better world or enrich their life.

Note: If you want to know more about the Prophet Mohammed, start with the: “PSYCHOLOGICAL PROFILE OF MUHAMMAD”  written by Dr. Hafsa ‘bint Sharif, Ph.D. http://www.allaboutmuhammad.co

Meanwhile here in the United States:

“No more boots on the ground” is the pathetic call of those who are willing to allow these radical Islamic animals in the Muslim world to continue running roughshod over common sense, common decency and civilized behavior. “No more boots” is the call of those who have given up on the hope that the United States will ever again become a strong leader and a strong force for good in this chaotic world. Pacifists, i.e., those Americans who believe that the United States is not worth saving and who would allow the United States to be conquered without another “shot being fired,” cannot be allowed to direct our national dialogue or our long-term destiny out of their fear.

You are certainly aware that radical Islam is at war, right NOW, with the United States as well as with every nation that does not bow down to Islamic principles. They fired, if not the first shot in the war on September 11, 2001, the most damning. You also must realize that this and every great nation was founded amid the violence of war, with the blood of patriots and enemies fertilizing the ground at the end of every battle. The United States has never been and I’m confident will never be a nation of cowards without principles. Certain American political forces however are attempting to push us in the direction of unprincipled, cowardly behavior and it would be wise to remember, if they are allowed to succeed, this nation will be conquered from within as effectively as we would be at the hands of a superior fighting force. In the words of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, This is a danger that I’ve been pointing to. It’s not a spin.  It’s not a whim. It is a clinical diagnosis of a pathological movement that is sweeping our area but will soon come to a theater near you.” The Prime minister was speaking to you and me in an exclusive interview with Fox News. Take that to the bank: Radical Islam is spreading and right now, thanks to he fear and lack of foresight by the United States the only one effectively trying to stand in the way of this plague is Israel. Hopefully that will change before radical Islam does indeed come to a “theater near us”.

Big Questions:

The biggest questions in the Middle East are: Do all Muslims, in their hearts, believe that the way to heaven is to kill all non-Muslims? I’m sure ALL Muslims do not believe this but if they don’t, where are their voices? Why are all but a very few Muslim clerics and organizations so quietly accepting of their radical brothers behavior? Are they dead inside, do they not have consciences? Or are they just afraid to speak out because they know that the governments of most Islamic-majority countries either support the murderous ways of radical Islam or are so cowardly they will not protect moderates from the radical elements within their religion?

Surprise!

Yesterday President Obama surprised me and I imagine the majority of Americans, by allowing airstrikes against the religious zombies who call themselves ISIS; I would have never thought that he had the guts to actually call for a strike against ANY radical Islamic force. Up until now I was actually convinced that, in his heart at least, President Obama was one of ‘them’ not one off ‘us’. Why would I think any differently? Since President Obama took office he seemed to be setting us up for a new form of government, one that is ruled by chaos if by nothing else and he has been a master at turning a blind-eye toward the pure, pustulent evil of radical Islam.

But now this!

From the LA Times : “In a statement issued Friday morning, the Pentagon said two F/A-18 Hornets dropped laser-guided bombs on artillery that had fired on Kurdish forces near Irbil, the Kurdish regional capital. The attack occurred only hours after President Obama announced he had authorized airstrikes to protect about 100 U.S. military advisors in Irbil and to halt the advance of the Islamist militants.”

It’s sad to say that President Obama’s actions against an obvious evil have surprised me. This fully justified act of force by the Air force of the leader of the free world should have been expected not surprising. I have to wonder if President Obama would have authorized such a bold act as targeting ISIS artillery if we did not have U.S. assets and people right in the path of ISIS. I believe, however, he might have — and I base that only on the fact that President Obama is a politician before he is a president. Showing some aggression against the obvious evil of radical Islam; while it is apparently against President Obama’s nature, is the politically savvy thing to do.

In fact, just a stray thought, during President Obama’s last two years in office he just might actually start thinking more about his legacy, his reputation. If he does, he might start acting like the president of all the people, not just the president of the people on the political far Left. He might actually start acting like the president of the most powerful, most benevolent nation on earth.

Happy Thought of the Day!

If the 2014 elections go the way I am hoping they will go, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi will become minor historical figures who can no longer protect the president from making the hard decisions. They will no longer be there to stop legislation from getting to the president — Harry Reid’s desk may suddenly become as empty as . . . well you know what I was about to say.

Lybia and Egypt: Too Many Questions!

Standard

We’ve heard of two ‘acts of war’ against the U.S. on 9/11/12. We’ve heard of 4 Americans dieing in those raids on those two U.S. Consulates in Lybia and Egypt — both sovereign pieces of U.S. territory.

We know that U.S embassies and consulates are defended by U.S. Marine emplacements. We know that our U.S. Marines are one of the finest, best trained, deadliest fighting forces in the world.

Questions

Did even one terrorist die in those attacks by radical Islam?

Are we intentionally not being told about the Muslim body count or were there no enemy casualties?

If not, why?

Could it be that the Obama administration knew that these attacks were going to occur?

Could it be that, because of the obvious cowardice that is deeply embedded in the Obama Administration’s foreign policy, we actually ALLOWED these attacks to occur?

Would a sitting American President allow U.S. territory to be invaded and allow the U.S. Flag to be desecrated?

Were the U.S. Marines told to stand down so this could happen?

Far too many questions and they all condemn the Obama Administration — and they all stink of treason!

Most damning of all: The Obama administration’s first response to Islamic Terrorists who invaded U.S. Territory and desecrated the American flag is an apology!
