    At around 11 o’clock that night, four Lockheed MC-130 Combat Talons, turboprop Special Operations aircraft, were flying through a moonless sky from Pakistani into Afghan airspace. On board were 199 Army Rangers with orders to seize an airstrip. One hundred miles to the northeast, Chinook and Black Hawk helicopters cruised through the darkness toward Kandahar,...
  • and finished it.

    Fact is, it is all simpler, in a way: we have not won a bloody war since WWII. SFO or not. Ooops, sorry, right, we won in Grenada, yhehaaa !

    We just fight left and right as per Israel’s orders. Israel does not care to win, destabilize is their motto, is their life.

    Once things stabilize, the muslims will organize, and are going to obliterate that disgraceful state. I can’t wait.

    Then we need to deal with the muslims but more importantly educate true Americans that israel-first are not Americans.

  • just read the title and could not resist, sorry: Bravo ! FINALLY someone says it like it is.

    Reminds of the imbecile of Ramsfield….he thought the war in Afghanistan could be won with spec. forces, what a complete moron. And he lectured about his completely flawed concept.

    Now I am going to read the article.

    In Orwell's 1984 is a section where he describes that government has a department which periodically is rewriting historical books to suit present policies.

    Way way back I did read Schiller's History of third Reich. In that book is a section where he is describing Hitlers speech mocking the letter Roosevelt sent him.
    The theme of letter was that Roosevelt is asking Hitler not to attack number of countries. Each country there is specifically written down.
    Schiller is there mentioning that Hitler conspicuously left out Poland.
    Decades after I am seeing on some video where Hitler is reading Roosevelt letter and Hitler is reading also Poland.
    ..............................
    So Schiller did lie in his book. Than how can I trust what Schiller did write.
    How can I trust anything in the book.
    Old testament is every time being rewritten with every new edition.
    How can anybody trust what is written, unless he reads all available books on the subject.

    Hi, sorry for my late answer.

    “For the past two years, in fact, the U.S. has maintained a Special Operations contingent in almost every nation on Russia’s western border”. Cynical me, you may say, but I suspect that the point quoted above was the reason why the article was written. Just the usual “let Putin win in Ukraine” propaganda. The rest is just padding.

    >neocohen drone is going to drone

    Such surprise.

    Many interesting points here. Another angle:

    Malthus was right. When people all have more kids than they can support, the result is not wealth but crushing poverty, and with it, instability and corruption and chaos. The notion that people will only stop having large families until after they are prosperous is a lie: the iron law of development is that FIRST a society reduces its fertility rate, THEN, if everything else goes well, per capita wealth can be increased.

    In the past we had a simple way of dealing with this: leave these overpopulated places alone to stew in their own misery. If they change their behavior and advance, great, if not, it's their problem not ours.

    But now we are working for a world with open borders, where any crank anywhere who hates the United States can just come here no questions asked. Suddenly we need to make sure that there are no extremist groups that hate the United States anywhere in the world - an obviously impossible task. But given that our elites find it anathema to restrict immigration in any way, it seems inevitable.

    But the core of the instability in places like the middle east and africa etc. is too rapid population growth. No amount of bombs, no amount of aid, no amount of democratic voting, can change that.

    It is our refusal to see the obvious truth about demographics which is, ultimately, the problem here.

    One needs manpower for development. It takes a large workforce and a large market to enable and justify advanced industrial infrastructure

    Gavrilo Princip and two others were Serb students at university in England.
    They were on holidays in Sarajevo when they did kill Ferdinand.
    Suspicion is that they were hired by English secret service to do the deed.
    Aim of English was to break up Austria-Hungarian empire.

    The fact is that the U.S. and Israel and Britain created AL CIADA aka ISIS and that the war on terror was brought on with Israels and the deep states destruction of the WTC on 911, which has provided the excuse to destroy Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya , Syria and Yemen all for the benefit of Israel.

    America is a captive nation of Israel and the Zionist dual citizens in the gov who control every facet of the U.S. gov and are loyal to Israel. All branches of the military are under the control of the deep state and the MIC and utimately the zionist neocons and there for are the proxy armies of Israel and fight and die in wars caused by the zionists that are for ISRAEL.

    Israel controls the U.S. gov and the proof is that Israel did 911 and got away with it.

    Many interesting points here. Another angle:

    Malthus was right. When people all have more kids than they can support, the result is not wealth but crushing poverty, and with it, instability and corruption and chaos. The notion that people will only stop having large families until after they are prosperous is a lie: the iron law of development is that FIRST a society reduces its fertility rate, THEN, if everything else goes well, per capita wealth can be increased.

    In the past we had a simple way of dealing with this: leave these overpopulated places alone to stew in their own misery. If they change their behavior and advance, great, if not, it's their problem not ours.

    But now we are working for a world with open borders, where any crank anywhere who hates the United States can just come here no questions asked. Suddenly we need to make sure that there are no extremist groups that hate the United States anywhere in the world - an obviously impossible task. But given that our elites find it anathema to restrict immigration in any way, it seems inevitable.

    But the core of the instability in places like the middle east and africa etc. is too rapid population growth. No amount of bombs, no amount of aid, no amount of democratic voting, can change that.

    It is our refusal to see the obvious truth about demographics which is, ultimately, the problem here.

  • Along with all these special forces – how many private mercenaries do we have deployed around the world.

    How many people around the world, does the US government murder every day?

    Our military has become a band of assassins that kill, but that take no land, that establish no correcting presence. Every time will kill like that we generate more people willing to fight us. Those are the facts.

    All these Israeli supporting generals are lying to us – they only generate more war. Jew inspired 9/11 is killing America.

  • Waging war permanently for the entertainment of the masses and the profit of the military industrial complex has become the most important foreign policy objective of the rulers. Spec ops is ideal for this – you don’t need a draft for a huge army and the daring feats of “our warriors” make for popular movies and video games, which in turn will likely inspire a sufficient number of young men to sign up to be spec operators themselves. Never actually winning any of the wars and multiplying the number of enemies is a feature of the American way of war, not a bug.

  • It might be wise to recognize the stages of collapse, and what it means for our rulers.

    http://cluborlov.blogspot.com/p/the-five-stages-of-collapse.html

    Political collapse as a steady state condition is described through the example of the Pashtuns—one of the world’s largest ethnic groups inhabiting parts of Afghanistan and Pakistan—whose code of honor (Pashtunwali, or the Pashtun Way) has allowed them to fight off (and, in some cases, help destroy) every empire that ever blundered into their habitat. (They are known to the consumers of Western propaganda primarily as the Taleban.) The Pashtuns allow us to clearly see the dividing line between a hierarchical, imperialist, collapse-bound society and that of a steady-state, entrenched, well-organized anarchy.

    The fault for this lies not with the troops themselves, but with a political and military establishment that often appears bereft of strategic vision and hasn’t won a major war since the 1940s.

    In the end, culture beats guns.

    US sends troops to fight drug dealers, but US media and entertainment glamorize drug trade and use via rap music, pop culture, movies, TV shows, gambling, and etc. Even supposedly anti-drug shows like BREAKING BALD HEAD really send a message that it's more exciting to live a life of sin and criminality than 'dull and dreary' sobriety.
    And even though WOLF OF WALL STREET has a moral perspective, the lasting impression is It's Fun to be Hedonistic and Snort Cocaine.
    Cinema is a great art form, but it's useless as conveyor of moral message. Even anti-war movies end up making war exciting. Even Oliver Stone's WALL STREET just turned Gekko into a rich-folk-hero. And even serial killers like Hannibal Lecters are turned into Cool Villains.

    Also, drug use is part of irresponsible behavior, excessivism, decadence, degeneracy, and etc. People worry about gateway drugs but they pay less attention to gateway attitudes. People who tend to be excessive, infantile, trashy, narcissistic, egocentric, celebrity-addicted, and etc tend to be more likely to fall into drug behavior. They love instant highs from culture and life, and drugs offer that instant high. Any surprise that Lindsay Lohan who led a crazy life ended up using all those drugs? Our culture promotes excessive attitudes that serve as gateway attitudes to drugs. Same thing with sex culture. More college coeds are willing to have 'sugar daddies' because they hooked to shameless narcissism and materialism.

    America is into excessivist mode. The whole culture says GO FOR INSTANT PLEASURE AND FUC* ALL ELSE. DON'T WORRY ABOUT CONSEQUENCES OR THE FUTURE. EXTREME IS GOOD. So, we have a culture of tattoos, piercings, pink-green hair, massive homo parades celebrating vanity-hedonism-shamelessness. We have rappers promoting thuggery, hornery, bitchass-ho-ness. We have twerking and bumping-and-grinding as dancing. We have Lena Dunham and Miley Cyrus as cultural icons. We have Emma Sulkowicz as 'artist'. We have George Takei the butt-bang-boy as guru, a homo yoda. We have Milo as a 'conservative', and we have Alex Jones as 'spokesman of the right'.
    We have hysteria as form of news by MSM. Russians!! Russians!! We have clowns like Bill Maher as 'progressive' and pigs like Michael Moore as 'hero of working class'.
    After terror bombings in UK and Europe, we have more feely-good and feely-self-righteous rallies with homo colors and globo rapture. We even have cuckold culture among Liberal Intellectuals. These supposedly rational, cerebral, and intelligent people are so addicted to sexual kinks that they cannot resist having Negroes hump their white wives or girlfriends on their own beds. Black dong is the opium pipe of white Libs whose thrills derive from getting bullwhipped by Negroes. No restraint, no shame.

    Is it then any wonder that drug use is rising? Culture has been vulgarized, infantilized, junglized, bitchized, thuggized, thrillized. That kind of attitude mindlessly seeks new highs and kicks, and so, why not indulgence in drugs? So, the demand for drugs go up and up and up. And what did Obama do before he decided to go for the ultimate high of being president? He was a druggie. And Obama-Soma was sold as a drug by MSM. White folks were foaming at mouth and fainting left and right at sight of The One, the closet-homo-mulatto-messiah.
    And in our post-ideological age where 'progressivism' amounts to worshiping homos, rappers, and 'diversity', politics is all just a grab-bag of power and privilege. It's gangsterism. So, when globalists defend the Pax Americana as 'liberal world order' and 'rule of law', it's too funny. It's all just gangsterism. Indeed, notice how Americans were taken aback when Reagan took 2 million from Japan after his presidency but no one bats an eye anymore about 100 million raked by Clinton and $60 million book deal by Obama and $600,000 gift for lecture at Goldman Sachs. The Power in our world is one of THE COUNSELOR:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iU25WxQksXE

    So, while the US sends troops to fight drug lords, the American masses are yelling, 'gimme more, gimme more, gimme more' to the drug dealers. Funs and buns beat guns.
    It's like US cops are sent to fight black crime but the Culture-at-large encourages Negroes to ACT CRAZY AND WILD.

    America is a cancer because its attitudology is into excessivism. It's like all this talk about 'growth'. It's like growth is always good. There's no sense of limits. All organisms have a limit. A child grows taller but stops growing once he reaches his limit as an adult. Human organs grow bigger as people go from child to adult, but they stop growing. Nations have limits too.
    The only biological thing without limits is cancer. Cancer keeps growing and growing and never ends. It's about excessive relentless growth. And the result is sickness and death.
    Because US is cancerous with obsession with 'growth', Americans will sacrifice everything for more 'growth'. Surely, if the US has a billion people or 2 billion people, its economy will be bigger. But America will be utterly transformed in terms of narrative, identity, heritage, and culture. What does it matter to America-as-cancer? It will sacrifice the demise of anything for more growth'. Gross and Growth. Indeed, cancerous globalism urges this on all nations. So, even though massive immigration will change and destroy Japan as cohesive nation, culture, and history, it should be welcomed for more 'growth'. So, Japan should accept its national limit and live within means. It must do whatever to have more 'growth' even if such endangers the ethnic and cultural integrity of Japan.

    Now, all ideologies have some value, but they also have useful limits. Beyond that limit, they do more damage than good. And if left unchecked, they can do great harm like cancer.
    National Socialism had its positive side, but it was cancerous because of Hitler's pathology, and it didn't know when to stop. It should have stopped with Sudentenland, but it kept on pushing for more and more until it led to invasion of Russia and war with 10s of millions dead.
    Communism was a cancerous version of socialism, which had some good things.
    Communism, being cancerous, never knew when to stop with collectivization, and under Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot, things got beyond horrible, but the lunatics kept pushing harder and harder until millions of people perished and entire cultures were destroyed, especially during Cultural Revolution.

    In the US, homo agenda turned cancerous. It began as a decent idea calling for freedom and basic rights for homos. It argued, on basis of secular rights, that homos are born that way and should be acknowledged as such. Let homos do their homo thing. Don't criminalize it. And if homos show aptitude in a certain field, he should be fired for being homo. If a homo is a good engineer, judge him on basis of talent. Good idea.

    But then, given homo predilection for vanity, narcissism, and Tim-Roth-in-Rob-Roy-like arrogance, homos attitude got more and more excessive, demanding, and then downright cancerous. Homos demanded to be seen as saints and angels. And then, homos demanded that they be seen as 'new normal' and marriage be changed to celebrate homo fecal penetration and tranny penis-cutting. And then, homos demanded that those who won't bend over to 'gay marriage' be destroyed. If you wont' bake a homo wedding cake, you are to be DESTROYED! And homo symbols must even be displayed in churches, and etc. And as homomania was promoted by Jewish media and academia as the New Sanctimony, a whole generation of idiots got addicted to feeling holier-than-thou by embracing and extolling homos as their holiness. Homos became their 'god on my side'.

    So, given such excessivism of culture and attitude, it's hardly surprising that drug use is going up. In the current US, decent parents who urge their girls not to go to spring break and act like whores are denounced as moral reprobates. The 'new normal' thing is for parents to raise their kids as offerings to mammon, to indulge in excesses of either pop culture vulgarity or PC sanctimony(a moral cancer of vain sanctimony).

    Also, US worships the holy three who are most involved and invested in spreading excess, decadence, and degeneracy. Homos, Negroes, and Jews. Homos are totally into excesses of vanity and narcissism. They even associated 'pride' with all sorts of demented lewd acts. Negroes, seen as holy divine folks in America, come up with stuff like ass-twerking, bumping and grinding, trashy rap battle, 'muh dic*' attitude, howling night and day, and screaming BLM even though blacks are the ones killing blacks(and non-blacks). And Jews run Las Vegas, Hollywood, Pornography, Pop Music, Celebrity Culture, Wall Street and other stuff that derive much profit from vulgarity, vice, and excess.

    Americans love of foreign wars is a mental illness, especially since they haven't won a war since 1945.

    For most normal countries the primary objective for going to war is to win it. For US is also a desirable objective, but not a primary one. The primary objective for US going to war is to make money – winning it may or may not contribute to the primary objective.

    How is US fault that they have hypersensitive ears? Wherever there are cries for freedom and democracy in the world, US is the only country that can hear them. Either that, or they are misinterpreting things. Then, when they intervene in any internal conflict that’s none of their business, things never turn out as advertised, but no one can question their sincerity and desire to help.

    The nature of US foreign policy? Basically, it's might over right.

    The actuality is that the US military, especially the SOF is nothing more than trained gangsters, protecting our 'SOB's' overseas, like we did to Saddam, until we wanted his gold and Israel wanted him dead.
    Ditto for Libya, we had decent relations with Qaddafi, until the broke FED wanted Libya's gold and Israel wanted him dead.

    Now we're bringing 'democracy' to Syria, one bomb, one bullet and one death at a time, turning that beautiful nation into a Rothschild slaughterhouse, with over 500,000 dead, millions displaced, much of the country a bombed out wreck--like Gaza--and the central bankers and Israel salivating over the coming feast, but Russia isn't playing along, so if someone in the Pentagon or WH is stupid enough to think a pre-emptive nuke strike would take out Russia and we'll survive because we 'ducked and covered' underneath our 55" HDTV, then humanity will join the dinosaurs and Mother Nature will be give thousands of years to heal and try again.

    Well said. And the average American, having been dumbed-down with fluoride, MSM propaganda and government education (indoctrination), has no clue that “we’re” the bad guys, under full control of the psychopathic central bankers. Along with Israel and Saudi Arabia.

    The fault for this lies not with the troops themselves, but with a political and military establishment that often appears bereft of strategic vision and hasn’t won a major war since the 1940s.

    In the end, culture beats guns.

    US sends troops to fight drug dealers, but US media and entertainment glamorize drug trade and use via rap music, pop culture, movies, TV shows, gambling, and etc. Even supposedly anti-drug shows like BREAKING BALD HEAD really send a message that it's more exciting to live a life of sin and criminality than 'dull and dreary' sobriety.
    And even though WOLF OF WALL STREET has a moral perspective, the lasting impression is It's Fun to be Hedonistic and Snort Cocaine.
    Cinema is a great art form, but it's useless as conveyor of moral message. Even anti-war movies end up making war exciting. Even Oliver Stone's WALL STREET just turned Gekko into a rich-folk-hero. And even serial killers like Hannibal Lecters are turned into Cool Villains.

    Also, drug use is part of irresponsible behavior, excessivism, decadence, degeneracy, and etc. People worry about gateway drugs but they pay less attention to gateway attitudes. People who tend to be excessive, infantile, trashy, narcissistic, egocentric, celebrity-addicted, and etc tend to be more likely to fall into drug behavior. They love instant highs from culture and life, and drugs offer that instant high. Any surprise that Lindsay Lohan who led a crazy life ended up using all those drugs? Our culture promotes excessive attitudes that serve as gateway attitudes to drugs. Same thing with sex culture. More college coeds are willing to have 'sugar daddies' because they hooked to shameless narcissism and materialism.

    America is into excessivist mode. The whole culture says GO FOR INSTANT PLEASURE AND FUC* ALL ELSE. DON'T WORRY ABOUT CONSEQUENCES OR THE FUTURE. EXTREME IS GOOD. So, we have a culture of tattoos, piercings, pink-green hair, massive homo parades celebrating vanity-hedonism-shamelessness. We have rappers promoting thuggery, hornery, bitchass-ho-ness. We have twerking and bumping-and-grinding as dancing. We have Lena Dunham and Miley Cyrus as cultural icons. We have Emma Sulkowicz as 'artist'. We have George Takei the butt-bang-boy as guru, a homo yoda. We have Milo as a 'conservative', and we have Alex Jones as 'spokesman of the right'.
    We have hysteria as form of news by MSM. Russians!! Russians!! We have clowns like Bill Maher as 'progressive' and pigs like Michael Moore as 'hero of working class'.
    After terror bombings in UK and Europe, we have more feely-good and feely-self-righteous rallies with homo colors and globo rapture. We even have cuckold culture among Liberal Intellectuals. These supposedly rational, cerebral, and intelligent people are so addicted to sexual kinks that they cannot resist having Negroes hump their white wives or girlfriends on their own beds. Black dong is the opium pipe of white Libs whose thrills derive from getting bullwhipped by Negroes. No restraint, no shame.

    Is it then any wonder that drug use is rising? Culture has been vulgarized, infantilized, junglized, bitchized, thuggized, thrillized. That kind of attitude mindlessly seeks new highs and kicks, and so, why not indulgence in drugs? So, the demand for drugs go up and up and up. And what did Obama do before he decided to go for the ultimate high of being president? He was a druggie. And Obama-Soma was sold as a drug by MSM. White folks were foaming at mouth and fainting left and right at sight of The One, the closet-homo-mulatto-messiah.
    And in our post-ideological age where 'progressivism' amounts to worshiping homos, rappers, and 'diversity', politics is all just a grab-bag of power and privilege. It's gangsterism. So, when globalists defend the Pax Americana as 'liberal world order' and 'rule of law', it's too funny. It's all just gangsterism.

  • A bit OT, but the article’s link to VE celebrations was highly amusing. The only time the US faced the Germans at full strength, they were nearly driven back to England, until the exhausted Germans couldn’t go any further. The German generals were rightly scornful of American military ability (as opposed to simply using its enormous material resources to carpet-bomb everything in sight, military and civilian). The Soviets obviously lied about a great many things on the Eastern front, but there’s no doubt at all that their contribution to the war effort dwarfed America’s by many orders of magnitude.

    So 10 billion dollars and special ops in a Colombian hell-hole are good. But on the other side of the globe, some guy wants to stop drug gangs in the Philippines, and it's bad? Not only that, it's a major human rights violation. Duterte should invite in the US Army. That way all the phony UN-Chelsea Clinton inspired human rights stuff would soon be forgotten. And since his country is so close to China, he could easily up the asking price to 20 billion. Maybe sponsor some joint military-container ship drills to seal the deal. The only problem with US intervention is that the drugs would still flow. From somewhere.

    There may be ground for suspicion that having US forces in the same general region as an ISIS franchise may lead to said ISIS franchise becoming somehow stronger and better-armed.

    No one can? Well perhaps they should start.

    Why, my fellow citizens, is there any man here or any woman, let me say is there any child here, who does not know that the seed of war in the modern world is industrial and commercial rivalry? The real reason that the war that we have just finished took place was that Germany was afraid her commercial rivals were going to get the better of her, and' the reason why some nations went into the war against Germany was that they thought Germany would get the commercial advantage of them. The seed of the jealousy, the seed of the deep-seated hatred was hot, successful commercial and industrial rivalry.

And homo symbols must even be displayed in churches, and etc. And as homomania was promoted by Jewish media and academia as the New Sanctimony, a whole generation of idiots got addicted to feeling holier-than-thou by embracing and extolling homos as their holiness. Homos became their ‘god on my side’.

    So, given such excessivism of culture and attitude, it’s hardly surprising that drug use is going up. In the current US, decent parents who urge their girls not to go to spring break and act like whores are denounced as moral reprobates. The ‘new normal’ thing is for parents to raise their kids as offerings to mammon, to indulge in excesses of either pop culture vulgarity or PC sanctimony(a moral cancer of vain sanctimony).

    Also, US worships the holy three who are most involved and invested in spreading excess, decadence, and degeneracy. Homos, Negroes, and Jews. Homos are totally into excesses of vanity and narcissism. They even associated ‘pride’ with all sorts of demented lewd acts. Negroes, seen as holy divine folks in America, come up with stuff like ass-twerking, bumping and grinding, trashy rap battle, ‘muh dic*’ attitude, howling night and day, and screaming BLM even though blacks are the ones killing blacks(and non-blacks). And Jews run Las Vegas, Hollywood, Pornography, Pop Music, Celebrity Culture, Wall Street and other stuff that derive much profit from vulgarity, vice, and excess.

  • I think the blame is misplaced. I spent a year with SOF in Afghanistan, I got back last year. They’re not independent operators, they cannot cross the left and right limits set by the theater commander, and the theater commander is limited by what Washington will allow. Our current posture in Afghanistan only allows us to conduct kinetic operations against bad guys if they pose a direct threat to US and allied forces or GIROA in Kabul (meaning that the Taliban and/or IS-KP could be taking over entire towns in the west and south of the country and we couldn’t do anything about it because it wasn’t a threat to us). The SF guys are essentially locked down on their FOBs and COPs and have to dream up reasons to leave their bases to do anything – and permission is not often granted. Prior to the change in posture there were obstacles from conventional Army and the Karzai government. SOF isn’t responsible for the ROE or theater policy, those are political decisions.

The real reason that the war that we have just finished took place was that Germany was afraid her commercial rivals were going to get the better of her, and’ the reason why some nations went into the war against Germany was that they thought Germany would get the commercial advantage of them. The seed of the jealousy, the seed of the deep-seated hatred was hot, successful commercial and industrial rivalry.

    And what is 'rule of law'? It depends on who control the law. So, if US says 'gay marriage' is now law of the land, people are destroyed for not making homo cakes. That is 'rule of law'?

Generally speaking, the US failed "to make the case" militarily after WW II and now the window of opportunities is closing fast.

    Bacevich is not a bad guy but he is after all a military man, so he does not understand that not all wars were meant to be won. The objective of Iraq war was to break that country, destabilize so chaos will rule. The same with Libya and the same was planned for Syria. Any Muslim country in Middle East is to be destabilized.

  • All of what’s reported by Nick, is beside the point of the decisions that need to be made for the country. And Nick’s erstwhile acquaintance in the service didn’t start his job yesterday, certainly not being a manager, and has been just as Nick found him for a long time. As Nick points out by the litany of past behavior, the comments are representative of an attitude that allowed those kinds of things that have already gone on.

  • Yeah, Trump is a symptom, an alarm signal. This is exactly what the elections are for, in oligarchical systems, also known as ‘liberal democracies’: taking the temperature of the masses. I’m sure they can deal with Trump, but now they (the establishment) have been warned.

  • Recently, I was asked a question about Kill Anything That Moves, my history of civilian suffering during the Vietnam War. An interviewer wanted to know how I responded to veterans who took offense at the (supposed) implication that every American who served in Vietnam committed atrocities. I think I softly snorted and slowly shook my...

    If you're not committing "war crimes" against an enemy like the Vietnamese insurgency, you're not doing it right. They were pretty vile.

    They fired two Americans in Afghanistan for stopping the rape of young boys an Afghan officer tied to the bed. Afghanistan Army regulars and officers can rape the children in the neighborhood and Americans are ordered to look the other way. Oh, that plants the future seeds of love for Americans. Oh, God dammit. I just committed a thought crime against Muslims that love to rape young children because:Islamophobia.
     
    I wonder how many of the war crimes Turse catalogs (what's the book on Vietnamese insurgency's war crimes? I bet they make far better reading) were in revenge for Vietnamese insurgent war crimes. You see a few heads on poles, that's bound to change your outlook and methods.

    Same goes for the goat-fuckers. A vile lot.

    Yes, the Vietnamese should run Vietnam. Yes, the Afghans should run Afghanistan. Still a vile lot.

    What a murderous piece of shite you are.

    I think the term Islamophobia gets a bad rap. It is indeed rational to have a bit of phobia toward an alien culture turning up in great numbers in your midst.

    What these people should be on the look out for is Islamomisia, which is outright hostility toward Islam and its adherents.

    By definition, a phobia is an “irrational fear”

    Phobia definition, a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it.

    It’s a bit hard to have a rationale for the irrational.

    The real issue is the gross misuse of the word phobia usually by the left.

    Terani is a whiner, latching onto any insults he's had launched his way throughout his life. He notes the ugly murder of three Muslims by a deranged person. Yet not one word for the millions of people subjected to genocide and enslaved by Muslims throughout the bloody history of Islam. Not one Muslim will apologize for their misdeeds and crimes against others; in fact they are proud of it. He left the Orient and entered the western world. He should leave that Oriental culture behind and adjust to his new surroundings. We have a different culture here and don't want this alien culture pushed upon us. A little reading up on Muhammad shows what a monstrous robber and murderer he was on a grand scale. What sort of a 'religion' is it that would consider something like that a 'prophet'? Terani has a chance here to ditch that garbage and free himself. Instead he wants to cling to it and stick it in our faces. No thanks.
    So he was in the navy, so what? Are we supposed to kiss his rear end for all eternity because of it? This entitles him to lecture everybody else on what being an American is really all about as though he's the ticket-holder?

    Indeed I do, I celebrate the deaths of those that celebrate the destruction of my own. Gives you butt-hurt, doesn't it, Muslim? You a-holes hate it when those you would have as victims push back, don't you? You folks can shoot up a theater or two, blow up a bus, kill here, kill there, but for real killing, for real revenge in the millions, all that needs be looked at is the Middle-East from Libya to Yemen. And spare me the "Jews did it to enrich the contractors-and-Israel" meme. However the towers got wrecked, Muslims celebrated and are paying for it to this day. And who cares? Pity my Muslim President brings you camel drivers here, though. Perhaps, as you breed like rats and grow in numbers however, you will eliminate feminism, a plus.

    and spare me the “Jews did it to enrich the contractors-and-Israel” meme.

    I don’t recall that particular meme, but it’s not even questionable that the Pentagon’s Office of Special Plans, who stove-piped false intelligence to Bush, needlessly embroiling America in Iraq and sowing the seeds of Middle Eastern havoc far and wide, was run by a self-named “cabal” of zionists, most of whom had openly declared their intent to destabilize every regime proximate to Israel in the ’96 “Clean Break” proposal.

    Furthermore, Israelis ~ with whom you appear to have no problem ~ high-fived each other while the towers burned.

    You obviously have a pretty big chip on your shoulder to be frothing at the mouth as you do. Clearly, your experience with muslims is limited.

    Hey The Alarmist,

    You make a very good point. Even as a Muslim, I can understand some people’s anxiety with Islam and Muslim presence among them. If one looks at history, one finds the following:
    1) Islam still takes itself very seriously, the other religions have basically (within the last few centuries) been marginalized by (post)modernity which states religion that is a kind of hobby or it doesn’t really matter at all
    2) Given enough time (sometimes centuries) – practically anywhere Islam ends up, a society eventually becomes more and more Muslim which is naturally reflected in the culture, social norms, legal framework
    3) Western societies are at dismal birth rates, which only exacerbates the anxiety

    Given all this and the fact that a good number of Muslims are presenting themselves as liabilities to their host countries; chronic dependency on welfare in certain sectors, sexual predatory behavior, etc. – concern is warranted. All of this should be up for public discussion with full transparency.

    What I can’t stand is people who try to lie about either history, Islamic doctrine, or use false statistics to try to make their case. In my experience, this usually (but not exclusively) comes from the “I’m with Israel” sector. I don’t know if I would term this ‘Islamophobia’, but I would definitely term it deceitful and underhanded.

    Peace.
