It's a comin'

Three strangers strike up a conversation in the passenger lounge in the Bozeman , Montana airport, while waiting for their respective flights.

One is American Indian passing through from Lame Deer, another is a cowboy on his way to Billings for a livestock show and the third passenger is a fundamentalist Arab student, newly arrived at Montana State University from the Middle East.

Their discussion drifts to their diverse cultures. Soon,the Westerners learn that the Arab is a devout, radical Muslim and the conversation falls into an uneasy lull.

The cowboy leans back in his chair, crosses his boots on a magazine table, tips his big sweat-stained hat forward over his face, and lights a cigarette. The wind outside is blowing tumbleweeds around, and the old windsock is flapping; but still no plane comes.

Finally, the American Indian clears his throat and softly he speaks, 'At one time here... my people were many... but sadly, now we are few.'

The Muslim student raises an eyebrow and leans  forward, 'Once my people were few,' he sneers, 'and now we are many. Why do you suppose that is?'

The cowboy removes his cigarette from his mouth and from the darkness beneath his Stetson says in a smooth drawl . . .I reckon that's 'cause we ain't played Cowboys and Muslims yet, But I do believe it's a-comin'.

A Jew, a Muslim and a Nazi strike up a conversation...

Look how happy we were after killing one Muslim!

Multiply that job by a million and you have some pretty ecstatic Americans.

A journey of a 1,000 miles starts with a single step.

When you kill one guy, it's personal, wou-wou. But when you kill alotta guys, like a couple million, then it's statistical, and nobody cares.

My Uncle Joe told me this.

One problem with that Bart, is a million won't be enough. A million will just piss them off, and then look out.

We've got one point five billion Muslims worldwide. Eliminating that many would be a challenge to anybody's military-industrial complex, even ours.

And then there's the cleanup...

"One problem with that Bart, is a million won't be enough. A million will just piss them off, and then look out."

The lefties have lamely been using that line for years, which properly interpreted is something like: 'We musn't defend ourselves from the war they've declared against us, that would only "piss them off" and create more terrorists.' Dhimmitude madness! And your Nazi throw-away joke is inadvertently poignant as even the mainstream Muzis in much of the world were/are pretty tight with Uncle Adolf's ideology. As Nazi political philosophy was effectively expunged from history through use of force, so must the similar death cult tenets of Radical Islam. To sum it up for you- the Fascist movement was completely crushed without resorting to ethnic genocide- and pretending that use of force isn't one (of several) legitimate component in the effort in containing similarly twisted ideologies is a facile argument on your part.

Besides, you're off script, Ed. Frontline pointed out last night that despite the duplicitous dream-world rhetoric you espouse that is the President's sop to the left, Obama in the real world has not only continued the previous administration's policies, he's increased the troops in the field in Afghanistan, opened up "new fronts" and agressively ramped up the special ops "kill and capture" campaign in Paki/Afghan. So apparently, while Obama might "get" your message, he just isn't paying it any serious attention.

We don't need to kill all of them
written by Barthélemy Barbancourt , May 11, 2011

We didn't kill every German, we just killed the right Germans and we ended WWII and Nazism.

If it became general knowledge that being a radical Muslim was likely to significantly shorten your life span, far fewer people would be attracted to it.

Islam is a new enemy but that doesn't mean old strategies won't work.

The Nazi snake had one head and everyone knew what it looked like.

Radical Islam is the Lernean hydra.

Nazism was a totalitarian regime, those fall apart as soon as you take out the cult of personality and the populous enforcement structure(s).

Islam is a decentralized religion political/educational/economic/legal system.

I needed a good laugh.

By the way, new Harrison Ford movie this summer: "Cowboys and Aliens". Looks like a hoot!

Nobody (no pun intended) said it was going to be easy. In the spirit of this thread in using famous quotes, as in Post-WWII, we'll undoubtedly have to break a few eggs to make an omelette. But when the death cult portion of a major world religion declares Holy War on you, the left, as usual keeps coming down with a case of the vapors at the mere mention of defending the country through the use of force. To further the WWII analogy, you of all people, nobody, certainly wouldn't condone going the way of Neville Chamberlain or Marshall Petain, right? Because that is what is coming if we let the wobblies take the lead and try to 1)"negotiate" and 2)seek out the "root causes" of this maniacal behavior 3) comically use government bodies like NASA as a community outreach vehicle for understanding.

Fortunately, despite his public denials, Obama has continued the agressive policies of the Bush administration and the net result has been that the 72 Virgins have been working overtime in Firdaus greeting all of the incoming martyrs. And jonny, you are correct regarding the decentralized nature of Islam- but- it DOES have cult of personality tendencies and enforcement structures through the mullahs and other state and NGO institutions. Like any bureaucracy or cult, they have institutional weaknesses; delegitimizing them domestically and internationally is a difficult, but not impossible, task. The first step is getting rid of AG Holder and prosecuting the propagandists and terrorist money-runners like CAIR and the other like-minded nefarious groups associated with the Holy Land Foundation- which was destroyed by the Bush Justice Department, with all of its leaders put away.

Ultimately, the Libertarian solution of unilaterally getting out of direct influence in world affairs is appealing, especially if we made the effort at divorcing our dependence on Mideast oil. The trouble is, there are elements in places like Iran and Iraq, and many other moderate Muslim nations, that would like to throw off the Multi-headed-Mullah-Medievalists (Jonny's lemean hydra, indeed!)in their midst once and for all- and it's just possible that, besides a moral obligation to these people and our own defense considerations, it may be strategically in our best interest in the long run to stay the interventionist course in rooting out and destroying the jihadist elements. Cost-benefit-wise it's a close call between the two and I could be swayed either way, but most definitely- appeasement is not an option!

Islam is totaly decentralised. When Attaturk made Turkey secular, even he noted that it would take a "generation or more". I think that is where we're at right now.

Cult of multiple personality disorder maybe would be a better term. It is set up in a franchise manner where you have multiple cults, the problem is that the ultimate cult leader has been dead since 632 but since he was a prodigious writer (ironically enough for a largely illiterate audience) his dogma is firmly established and only the interpretations remain.

The way to beat totalitarian Islam is no different than the way to beat any totalitarian regime, education and cultural freedom. Force just won't work, look at the lack of success that the Egyptians had against the Muslim brotherhood. Put a textbook under peoples arms, a facebook account on their computers, and J-Lo on their Ipod.

Attaturk is spinning in his grave right now. Erdogan is rolling back the reforms that made Turkey what it became. I don't think he has the force of personality to totally reverse them, but a succession of toadies will.

An Attaturk lead government would be a EU member, an Erdogan lead one will never be.
