Reprint: Respecting an enemy
This is a 2007 entry that seems especially appropriate in the context of the Cordoba Victory Mosque and Petraeus's fatwa against Koran-burning.
Our ruling class (politicians, military, academia, post-Christian "church" leaders) is completely collaborated, fully flipped, absolutely owned by the enemy. They have made it perfectly clear that they stand on Allah's side.
I'm not talking to them, because they are unsalvageable and unforgivable.
I'm talking here to the smarmy chickenshit "conservatives" like Jonah Goldberg or Palin or Krauthammer who claim to be
on our side, but worry more about "winning hearts and minds" than winning the war.
Those two concepts are EXACT OPPOSITES.
A little blast from the past, showing the proper way to treat an enemy with respect. Yes, that's right, respect. No condescension here. We portrayed the Japs as ugly, nasty, horrible people who needed to be defeated totally. Smashed, crushed like rats in a trap. They were not
shown as poor dumb misguided folks who would be nice if they just had the right to vote in elections monitored by Jimmy Carter.END REPRINT
Applying this to the current situation:
Our media and government, by begging Pastor Jones not to burn the enemy's military training manual, or by begging cartoonists not to draw caricatures of Mohammed, are treating Arabs like children.
Our elites are condescendingly assuming that Arabs are childlike, primitive, retarded and incapable of controlling their impulses. This is of course plainly and objectively true at the moment
, but we should be expecting and encouraging better behavior
from the enemy. THE WHOLE POINT OF A DEFENSIVE WAR IS TO TEACH THE ENEMY TO RESTRAIN HIS IMPULSES.
This worked nicely with the Krauts and Japs in 1945, though it took a more forceful learning experience than we originally thought necessary.
In the current case we are doing the precise opposite. We're not even trying to teach the Arabs proper behavior; instead we're indulging their tantrums and letting them take over our cities
with their primitive behavior.
Pastor Jones is taking the old-fashioned approach, the FDR/Churchill approach, the way of war that was normal and standard and fully understood before the collaborationist Bush/Obama dynasty. Pastor Jones is absolutely alone in this country, though several European leaders have already turned toward the same old-fashioned light.
