Allah Snackbar!

"We’re scrupulously non-judgmental about the ideology that drives a man to fly into a building or self-detonate on the subway, and thus we have a hole at the heart of our strategy. We use rhetorical conveniences like "radical Islam" or, if that seems a wee bit Islamophobic, just plain old "radical extremism." But we never make any effort to delineate the line which separates "radical Islam" from non-radical Islam. Indeed, we go to great lengths to make it even fuzzier. And somewhere in that woozy blur the pathologies of a Nidal Malik Hasan incubate… The vast majority of Muslims don’t conspire to kill cartoonists or murder their daughters or shoot dozens of their fellow soldiers. But Islam inspires enough of this behavior to make it a legitimate topic of analysis. Don’t hold your breath. We’d rather talk about anything else — even in the Army. What happened to those men and women at Fort Hood had a horrible symbolism: Members of the best trained, best equipped fighting force on the planet gunned down by a guy who said a few goofy things no one took seriously. And that’s the problem: America has the best troops and fiercest firepower, but no strategy for throttling the ideology that drives the enemy — in Afghanistan and in Texas." – Mark Steyn

I slam, you slam, we all slam for Islam.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    You are right with this point. America wanted to fight Islamism with weapons, but what would have been more necessary was knowledge. To beat your enemy, you have to respect him and you have to know him better than he knows you. The wars in Irak and Afghanistan were (are) clashes of religions and mentalities.So, brain, diplomacy and psychology will be the weapons of the 21th century.

  2. "Progressive" left wingers are a greater threat to our freedom as anything and everything is an excuse to increase government power over individuals. Clearly NMH was either a terrorist or a crazy man. I'm not willing to give up my rights and liberties for safety.

  3. TedWest says:

    Terrorist or crazy? Why can't he be both? But the problem isn't what he is, it's who made it possible for him to do what he did. Everyone up-line from hime should be court martialed – including Casey.
    And it's a testimony to how passive the right has been that all these PC people should occupy positions of power in every institution that matters.

  4. 1. The army made it possible 2. It looks like he was a terrorist after all, but I will wait for the investigation. 3. Do you think that Obama will be able to sweep it under the rug?

  5. TedWest says:

    1) It wasn't just the army, it was every stinking liberal in America.
    2) Investigation? Are you a judge? Do you expect to serve on the jury? Of course he's a terrorist. Even if he acted alone without any input from anyone but his filthy Koran, he's a terrorist.
    3) Obama can't sweep anything out of sight, it's Americans who will decide whether this is just your average nut with a gun or the latest terrorist to be allowed passage by the PC police.
    One of the rottenest of the rotten, Evan Thomas of "Newspeak" is concerned that the "right wing" will go nuts with this. He's not quite as concerned about the dead and wounded, it would seem.
    Have you cold cocked a liberal today?

  6. JudgeBob says:

    I heard an economic analyst 'suppose' the natural result of weak currencies around the world will lead to global government, global currency, one or new world order. Prophecies of the end times are now plainly in sight even to the secularists. Why? Because we won't name the evil in our midst which are doing the damage. Socialist, communist, Islamist, doesn't matter what its called. All that matters is that we are allowing 'it' to run us. We will enter this new world order without a whimper.

  7. TedWest says:

    Make love not war means something very different now from what it did when the saying was coined at the height of Vietnam. Then, it had validity because we were fighting a truly unnecessary war and Johnson was mass murdering our troops.
    And those who subscribed to that saying were naive at best. Today we have people who really want to kill us and will go to any extent and any location to do it.
    And socialists, communists and islamic scum all take a backseat to liberals in terms of the danger they represent, As bad a guy as Major Muslim is, he should never have been able to carry out his plan, and it's not only liberals who are responsible – the right shares responsibility because there are far too many cowards who will not stand up to the PC pronouncements and who fear that pointing a finger will lose them a position.
    America is already ruined. Now it's a question whether we'll survive Obama. I've never seen such evil, and I said Clinton was the most evil man of the twentieth century. He was a pussycat compared to Barot. And he represents the majority of Americans.
    Now one positive note… you will get along under an Islamic regime far better than the liberal and the ignorant who refuse to recognize the threat. For that reason, I'd love to see the looks on their faces when the hummus hits the fan.

  8. Great! I knew I could get you goin' LOL

  9. TedWest says:

    LOL. You've heard of Foxworthy's "you may be a redneck if…?" Maybe we could write "You May Be An Idiot If…?"
    You live in Australia…
    Your name is Chris Matthews…
    The "peace" in Religion of Peace happens before you're dead…

  10. You might be an idiot if…
    If you think that being a "Progressive" will make the world a better place in which to live.
    If you think that free universal health insurance is both free and will give a positive universal outcome.
