Our Hundred Years’ War

October 21, 2014 By J.R. Dunn

All the commentaries about ISIS and the campaign against it, whether coming from the left, right, or middle, overlook the basic nature of the conflict: the fact that this is a thirty — if not a hundred — years’ war.

Barack Obama, the president with the least understanding of military affairs of any on record, is fighting this as a limited war, a war of “containment” with no overall strategy of the moment, much less any kind of grand strategy for the long run. Obama, along with his various Middle East “experts” of the Susan Rice and Samantha Power variety, persists in stumbling from crisis to crisis, never accomplishing much, never looking forward to the next move, forever playing catchup ball. The end result has been political chaos, humanitarian disaster, and a revival of Jihadi fortunes throughout the Islamic crescent.

We got in this position through half steps. The Bush administration was unwilling to lay out the facts of this conflict in the manner of John F. Kennedy’s description of the Cold War as the “long twilight struggle.” All the same, Bush had a strategy, and a very profound one: crush the Taliban, harry Al Qaeda, destroy Saddam Hussein’s Iraq — which would inevitably try to set itself up as Terrorism Central — and terrify the rest of the Arab world, whether allies or enemies, into behaving themselves.

Much of this worked. But at the same time, Bush and his people were unwilling to define the conflict, to clarify that the post-9/11 campaigns were simply the first phase of a long war that would last for decades at best. This is perhaps understandable in a knee-jerk oppositionist media environment directed and manipulated by the likes of Michael Moore, but it remains a serious failing. An ignorant and easily-led public expecting instant results was not adequately prepared for a lengthy, grueling struggle against a canny and fanatical enemy, and soon lost patience.

The Democrats, always ready to take advantage of anything at all, no matter what the risk or cost to national security or the actual interests of the people, proved more than willing to exploit this in 2008. After years of peddling the line that the entire terror conflict was Bush’s fault, with the Jihadis themselves amounting to ciphers, the Dems appealed to the popular “war-weariness” (that they had in large part generated) with the implicit promise that, once Barack Obama was elected, the wars would be all finished, the terror conflict tidied up, and everything returned to what it had been pre-9/11. A bow to various Muslim chieftains, a public apology or twenty, and things would be fine. This was in keeping with the policies of the last two Democratic administrations of running on “normalcy” platforms — a guarantee that the country could take a permanent holiday from history and pay nothing at all for it.

Obama promised that the U.S., under his guidance, would return to a 90s status quo, the status quo that had vanished on September 11, 2001 and is doomed never to be revived. He was unable to keep that promise, any more than he kept any of his others.

The voters, having heard nothing else, fell for it. The war effort was geared down to the lowest possible level, with pullouts from Iraq and Afghanistan scheduled in defiance of any and all developments and with action left to drone strikes.

An apparent attempt at an end run around the entire problem was made through the “Arab Spring,” an effort to “democratize” the Middle East which ended in absolute disaster. We know very little about the details behind this effort (Benghazi is only the upper part of the iceberg), our honest media having absolutely refused to look into it.

As for the ISIS, American strategy is limited to airstrikes and possible Special Forces action. We have no allies and no coalition. There is not a spark of enthusiasm among the nations of the West. That is where it stands, and where it will stand. Nobody trusts a United States run by Obama, Kerry, and Hagel. Would you?

The future progression is easy to predict. This is a Vietnam strategy, produced the same way that the Vietnam War was produced — through less-than-competent individuals overthinking the situation in attempts to account for every last variable before ever making a move. The inevitable result is a long drawn-out conflict with no discernible goals, a steadily deteriorating situation marked by failure and stagnation, encouraging manipulation and interference by third parties such as Russia and China. In short order, members of our progressive elites will begin to insist that the Jihadis are a “fact of life” — as they did concerning the USSR — that must be “accepted” with endless proposals for appeasement and propitiation.

So the first phase of the war, under Bush, was a success on its own terms. The second, under Obama, is a disaster of near-apocalyptic proportions. Tens of thousands have already died, millions will join them, possibly no small number of them on the streets of American cities.

Despite this, ISIS will eventually be defeated, as much by its own internal contradictions — sectarian conflict, assassinations, and friction with other Jihadi outfits and nations — as anything else. There are a lot of people who want to be caliph, and Arab history gives a good idea as to how this will all shake out.

But there will be a third phase. Another such organization will arise and require further action. This is due to the nature of the distributed network on which Islamism is based and the fact that the Jihad is a product of a mass religious movement. Al Qaeda, Boko Harum, the ISIS, and what have you are only aspects, masks for the demented face beneath, used and discarded as circumstances demand.

There is a strategic solution (there is always a strategic solution). One that is not easy to face, particularly for Americans, who like things done quickly, simply, and humanely, with as little fuss and expense as possible. World War II is the American model: the country gearing up as a whole for a swift, overwhelming effort to destroy three evil and menacing empires. The war lasted roughly three-and-a-half years and ended with the total destruction of the enemy and the near-universal punishment of the aggressors.

The Cold War was another story. Precisely as necessary as WW II — the Soviets, Maoists, and Castroites nearly matched the Nazis in pure viciousness — but a far more difficult sell. It was not a conflict that could be settled in a few quick campaigns, but only through lengthy, grueling efforts, many of them invisible to the citizenry and difficult to explain at best. (The constant deterrence patrols by aircraft over the Arctic and SLBM submarines in the world’s oceans are examples of this.) It’s no surprise that after thirty years of it, most politicians, almost all intellectuals, and a large fraction of the general public had thrown in the towel. (If this can said about an intelligentsia that rather approved of the Marxist dictatorships in the first place.) It was a very small number of politicians and their advisors who saw it through to a successful conclusion.

The arc of the Jihadi conflict will be similar, tempered by several facts: nobody particularly approves of the Islamists, not even the left. The Jihadis easily exceed the Marxist tyrannies in sheer vileness — every Islamist is his own death camp commander, ready to commit unimaginable atrocities for any reason or none. While the Communists avoided direct strikes against the West, the Jihadis yearn for such actions. Many such strikes (Fort Hood, Times Square, Boston, Tulsa) have occurred under the Obama dispensation. These will only increase to a point where they can no longer be swept under the rug by a corrupt government and complicit media.

Because of these differences, the long-term strategy will be different from that of the Cold War. Rather than simple containment until the Soviet empire collapsed of its rotten weight, it will be a war of attrition. There are a billion-plus Muslims currently active. If 1% are convinced fanatic Jihadis, that translates into somehting in the range of ten to twelve million. Which means that we need to kill a large portion of that ten to twelve million. As William T. Sherman put it repeatedly during the Civil War, the Confederate war effort was dependent on 300,000 Southern aristocrats — slaveholders with influence over poorer and less educated Southerners. Once those 300,000 were killed, the war would end. This Sherman and Grant set out to do.

It took Lincoln and his cabinet over three years to face this fact. This was impossible for Obama (and for that matter, Bush). In the ultra-civilized, not to say effete 21st century, this will not occur until the U.S. has suffered far greater injuries than it has. The left will play the terror conflict the same way they did the Cold War. Obama has set the pattern and they will follow it.

We have a people whose mental horizons are set by sports, entertainment trivia, and reality TV. People who want no more than to retreat to their mancaves, malls, and game consoles and not be bothered. They are easily played and manipulated by anybody who is willing to promise exactly that.

This mindset will need to be destroyed before a serious campaign against the Jihadis can be resumed. Eventually the terrorists will take care of that themselves through their own atrocious actions. But it won’t happen tomorrow, and until it does, there’s no point in discussing an abstraction like “strategy.” Without will, strategy is pantomime.

We need a grand vision for the United States. Not only as the world’s leading economy and pioneer in participatory democracy, but as something more: a nation with a great destiny as defender of the West and protector of the civilized virtues against a savage and implacable enemy.

There is no one on the political horizon that can shape this vision. Fortunately, democracies have a tendency to produce such figures (Pericles, Churchill, Truman, Reagan). But only when the chips are down. They’ve scarcely even started falling yet.

All the commentaries about ISIS and the campaign against it, whether coming from the left, right, or middle, overlook the basic nature of the conflict: the fact that this is a thirty — if not a hundred — years’ war.

Silence in the face of Jihad in New Jersey

Recently, Australian policed uncovered a jihadist plot to kidnap regular citizens on the streets of Sydney, behead them, and send the gruesome and terrifying videos over the internet. The aim of the terrorists was to bring Australia to its knees and bend it to Islamic demands.

Unknown to most, we in America were not as fortunate as the Aussies. Something similar to what happened in Australia took place here, but the mainstream media is keeping it quiet. In West Orange, New Jersey, a lovely middle-class suburb, an American jihadist, Ali Mohamed Brown, shot and killed a promising 19-year-old right on the street corner because, as he boasted to police, he was “looking to find an American to kill in retaliation for Moslem deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan”. The killing took place this past June 25.

Young Brendan Tevlin, beloved in his Irish-Catholic community, was murdered precisely because he was American, by a jihadist roaming our suburban streets hunting down Americans. Mohamed called it a “just killing”. Identifying as a Moslem and not as an American, he took “revenge” against his fellow countrymen.

The media hasn’t covered the story, just as they never mentioned the jihadi motives behind the Muhammad/Malvo “Beltway” shooting spree at cars on I-95 a few years ago, or the shooting by a jihadist at a Little Rock army recruitment center, or in Seattle, or at LAX, or years ago atop the Empire State Building.

Why the media silence? Contrast this to the recent wall-to-wall Ferguson, Missouri coverage, and the relentless conclusions of “racism” heaped on a situation many believe was simply self-defense by a police officer. Yet, we hear nothing from the mainstreamers when it comes to home-grown Islamic killings of Americans, carried out in the name of Islam.

Many conservatives realize that the mainstream media report not the important news as much as selecting news items that affirm their liberal templates, primarily that whites in America are racist and hostile to minorities, including Moslems, though worldwide Moslems number 1.4 billion. The Ferguson case fits right into their concocted template of pervasive white-on-black racism whereas American jihadists acting brutally against fellow Americans does not.

The zealously liberal media chooses and interprets news pieces for the purose of encouraging more social engineering so as to keep the “racist majority” in line and to help elect liberal Democrats they hope will change America to a multiculturalist and European-like socialist Mecca. The West Orange, New Jersey murder story works against the goals for which many journalists entered the news business.

Some in the media explain their silence as trying to avoid backlash against the Moslem community, although Americans, throughout our ordeals at the hands of Islam, have not exhibited any kind of real backlash behavior. Islamic organizations, such as CAIR, falsely make these charges to a gullible liberal punditry eager to agree with CAIR. It’s part of the stealth jihad playbook to deflect attention away from the atrocities. Actually, it’s Jewish institutions and Jewish people who have, during the last ten years, been the major victims of attacks, and it has come primarily from Islamic perpetrators.

For the Western world to concede it has an Islamic problem on its hands means rising to a battle for our survival, a challenge requiring moral courage and, worse, a rejection of political correctness. Thus, the denial… the silence. But if we remain silent, these atrocities will continue. In Sweden, for example, rapes of Swedish girls by Moslem gangs are soaring because people remain silent and won’t speak the truth. Police can’t keep tabs on likely suspects if we and law enforcement are not allowed to consider and profile likely suspects. And, once the crime has been committed, it’s too late for the victim.

President Obama has made it a centerpiece of his career to gloss over the misdeeds of Islam and Islamists. In his book, The Audacity of Hope, Mr. Obama wrote that “if ever elected to high office I will stand with Islam if the political winds go against it”. But it’s not some outside fictitious wind that’s doing all this, it is coming from members of Islam itself.

The first and foremost job of a president is to protect Americans, not to run interference for Islam and put Americans at risk so as to protect the image, honor, and sensitivities of Islam’s followers. When he tells us that ISIS has nothing to do with Islam, he betrays us and our intelligence by lying to us so as to protect Islam. ISIS, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood, Taliban, Al Qaida, Iran, Hizb’allah, Qatar… they all tell us they are acting in the name of jihad, Islamic supremacy, and mankind’s submission to sharia law. Surely, Mr. Obama knows this. Indeed, we hear the same jihad talk from imams all over the world and on the streets of London, Paris, and Antwerp.

People in the media are fearful of mentioning the role of Islam, fearing the heavy hand of the Obama administration, ostracism, or being accused of hate speech when they’re just speaking honestly. Those speaking out are not against a race but an ideology. It’s erroneous to assume that Islamic ideology is the same as our Judeo-Christian outlook.  Such is not racism but a well-reasoned value judgment based on evidence we see daily.

“But there are moderate Muslims”. Yes, but the question of how many Muslims are moderate is irrelevant. The question is how we protect ourselves from the millions out to conquer and kill us and sublimate us to sharia? How do we safeguard against the jihadists running and ruling Islam today, be they hard-core terrorists or the soft and slick jihadists in fancy suits and ties? Mr. Obama and the media finally have to decide: Are they here to protect us or to protect Islam at our peril?

Here’s the latest news from the 8th century

Two unrelated incidents in Syria involving Islamists show that it’s not just Islamic State who wants to take us all back to the 8th century.

Reuters:

A man and a woman have been stoned to death for adultery in separate executions in jihadist-controlled areas of Syria, a monitoring group reported on Tuesday.

The man was executed in Idlib province in an area controlled by Islamist groups including the Nusra Front, al Qaeda’s official affiliate in Syria, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks violence on all sides of Syria’s civil war.

It is the first documented case of a man being stoned to death for adultery since Syria descended into civil war in 2011 and hardline Islamic groups emerged as powerful players in areas that slipped from government control, the Observatory said.

The woman was executed in Hama province in an area controlled by Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot that has seized swathes of Syria and Iraq and is being targeted by U.S.-led air strikes, the Observatory said.

A video posted online appeared to show her execution. A bearded fighter is shown passing down the sentence in the presence of other gunmen and her father, who appears to approve of her execution.

Her hands and feet are then tied with a rope and she is forced to kneel in a pit. Covered head to toe, she begins to pray out loud as large rocks are seen striking her body. The video shows the logo of Islamic State.

The two incidents, which Reuters could not independently verify, appear to be unrelated.

The woman’s execution was the third of its kind in Islamic State-run territories in Syria, according to the Observatory.

Islamic State controls around a third of Syria and Iraq after having acquired new territory with lightening speed earlier this year. It quickly established a fierce reputation by crucifying, beheading and carrying out public executions of anyone deemed a threat to its rule.

Islamic State routinely carries out sentences of lashing against men in territories it rules for offences that range from adultery and subversion to blasphemy and missing prayer time.

In July, Islamic State stoned two women to death under similar circumstances to the Hama stoning. One was of a 26-year-old widow, according to the Observatory.

Syrian society is unaccustomed to sentences like stoning and lashing. For decades, the country was ruled by a government that implemented a mixture of Islamic and secular laws. Offences such as adultery were rarely prosecuted.

Thanks for nothing, dad.

Syrian society better get used to this, along with other 8th century niceties like crucifixion, cutting off limbs, deliberate blinding – all the enlightened punishments that any 8th century peasant would recognize.

In other news, a camel set the land speed record, galloping more than 20 MPH in the desert outside of Raffqa…

Islamic State controls around a third of Syria and Iraq after having acquired new territory with lightening speed earlier this year. It quickly established a fierce reputation by crucifying, beheading and carrying out public executions of anyone deemed a threat to its rule.

Islamic State routinely carries out sentences of lashing against men in territories it rules for offences that range from adultery and subversion to blasphemy and missing prayer time.

In July, Islamic State stoned two women to death under similar circumstances to the Hama stoning. One was of a 26-year-old widow, according to the Observatory.

Syrian society is unaccustomed to sentences like stoning and lashing. For decades, the country was ruled by a government that implemented a mixture of Islamic and secular laws. Offences such as adultery were rarely prosecuted.

Thanks for nothing, dad.

Syrian society better get used to this, along with other 8th century niceties like crucifixion, cutting off limbs, deliberate blinding – all the enlightened punishments that any 8th century peasant would recognize.

Canadian Soldier Killed, Another Injured by Muslim Convert in Hit & Run in Quebec

By on 10.21.14 | 11:06Am

Yesterday, two Canadian soldiers were deliberately hit by a vehicle in St. Jean-sur-Richelieu, about 30 miles south of Montreal. One of the soldiers died while the other is expected to survive. The name of the deceased soldier has not been released at the request of his family.

Police pursued the driver and eventually shot and killed him. The driver has been identified as Martin Rouleau, a 25-year old man who converted to Islam and went by the name Ahmad the Converted on his Facebook page.

 

The Conservative government of Stephen Harper almost immediately concluded that the incident was a terrorist attack but Official Opposition and NDP leader Thomas Mulcair chided the government for bringing up the link to terror in the House of Commons. As usual, Harper is right and Mulcair is wrong.

Recently, the Canadian government sent a small contigent of forces into Iraq to assist the U.S. effort to combat ISIS.
