They Don’t Belong in a Nation Built on Liberty

IMO the fault lines in America are nearly as bad as Yugoslavia, and the result needs to be the same. I have zero interest in any longer putting up with, or having my kids indebted by, or threatened by, a violent, totalitarian, anti-American Left. They do NOT belong in a nation built on liberty and freedom; they are its antithesis. Blue States need to be tossed from the Union, or Red states need to secede – with or without permission from a government lacking in the authority to withhold that (un-needed) permission.

The Berkeley kids want to behead Republicans. The antifa want to punch, kick and beat with rods the adults; they are putting cherry bombs inside glass bottles and throwing them into crowds to permanently maim other human beings. (BTW – Don’t EVER talk to me again about how the Left cares about human lives.) BLM still wants to kill all the white cops and keep cops out of their neighborhoods.

This is not going to end well or peacefully – the Left won’t let it. Either we start shooting back – which likely will not be long in coming – or the enemy defeats America, which is their entire goal.

These bastards injure one kid of one adult willing and able to recognize that the Rule of Law does not exist for these enemies (cops standing aside proves that), and that there is nothing our ludicrous Congress is going to do about it (like man-up and start passing the agenda of the guy we elected) and acts on it, and the next sounds America hears will be the hard rain of brass on pavement.

No reason exists to continue to put up with this crap.

A More Mature Outlook on Combat Operations

Interesting article about the beginnings of a more mature outlook on combat operations in S Asia by the Trump administration.

COMMENTS:

  1. The Geneva Conventions and the “Laws of War”, which we use to set our Rules of Engagement, were designed BY Europeans FOR wars AMONG Europeans. No one else ever has paid them any attention.
  2. Those demanding limiting the American military to the above are demanding monocultural constraints on Western forces when engaging non-Western “multicultural” enemies who do not recognize Western constraints. This is an absurdity.
  3. “Multiculturalists” demanding Western rules of war against non-Westerners are projecting Western morals onto non-Western foes. They are demanding monocultural engagement and pretending this makes them “multicultural”. It doesn’t. It makes them Western imperialists.
  4. Those worrying that we “will become like them” by killing them seem unable to grasp that we did not become NAZIs by killing NAZIs en masse and bombing their cities to rubble – we made THEM become citizens of a democratic representative republic, not subjects of the totalitarianism we crushed. Nor did we become Imperial Japanese – and ditto.
  5. When Trump says he has “authorized the military” he is acting exactly as did FDR in our last successful war: Set the strategic objective and let the military figure out how to achieve it within whatever constraints the nation (CINC) sets. No one told Gen. Marshall how to fight WW2 – FDR told him to achieve the objective the CINC set: Defeat the enemy in combat. Similarly, no one told Gen. Eisenhower to “win the war in Europe,” which is a political – not a military – objective. Ike was told to destroy the German Army in the field in combat (which was the root of his “Broad Front” strategy that took longer to end the war but ensured there were almost no armed enemies left at the end to reconstitute yet another European war in the foreseeable future) – and he did. Ending the war was a political goal achieved by the combination of the Allies crushing Germany between them and ensuring the German people lost both the capability and, more importantly, the will to continue the fight.
  6. Ignoring the above constraints and going Truman on non-Western enemies is the multicultural way to engage multicultural enemies in war, as we did in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, saving between 6M-9M lives by not invading Japan.
  7. It is time to put American warriors first – and let them kill our enemies in whatever numbers are required to ensure they don’t kill us – or anyone else. It is time to give the military a strategic goal (ridding the planet of ISIS) and a set of constraints (don’t use nuclear weapons – but all else is on the table) and let them do THEIR jobs. (I wouldn’t take tactical nuclear weapons off the table, but I’m not the CINC…).This is what it seems Trump has done. Good.

Combat Without a Cause

Army generals are going to want Army wars.

The military has an agenda which is not the same as the nation’s, yet since Kuwait, in some psychological quest to put Vietnam behind us, we Boomers are turning too far toward it.

The entire Right and half the Center is good with maximizing the presence of 4-stars in a civilian administration. Why? They have hammers – every single problem is going to be a nail. Not a Marshall among them. Not an Eisenhower. Not a Pershing. Just a buncha wannabe Bradleys who want to fight until it gets too hard and then back off. And we’ve fired all our George Pattons and Stonewall Jacksons. And Dwight Eisenhowers.

America can’t measure its place in the world by the number of tiny, backwards countries in which our military can go wage combat – and not win.

We CAN measure our place by decisively winning wars of necessity – and saving combat and its toll in blood and treasure… for war.

The biggest problem we’ve had since Kuwait, when we pretended combat was war, is that we now pretend war is combat.

The country got all rah-rah when we invaded Afghanistan and Iraq. We were winning for the first time since we came home with our tail between our legs from Vietnam and treated our warfighters atrociously.

But we are winning at combat; we still suck at war.

Or we wouldn’t take 16+ years to not defeat a bunch of illiterate, untrained savages with small arms and homemade bombs.

Now all the Baby Boomers who ran away from Vietnam get to say “I wish I’d gone!” and “It’s about time we treated our military as we should!” and put banners along the roads of Hometown Hero parades – while sending, you guessed it, non-Boomers off to kill and to die in some foreign land while the Boomers now running the place reject victory.

We’ve seen this movie before.

This is what happens when a powerful society stops taking seriously killing and dying – they do it for reasons other than necessity, mostly to feel “good” about themselves. (And if you think America takes killing and dying seriously, please explain Chicago.)

Patriotism cannot be borne on the backs of illiterates being killed for causes we don’t believe in enough to win.

Kuwait – at best – was a punitive expedition against no serious opponent. The invasion of Iraq was hardly more. All the flag ranks want to get some combat going on – careers, bragging rights, bigger budgets, more toys, larger organizations, etc. The generals and Admirals sit in their corners of the Pentagon building their teams. They’re the D1-Varsity, and if they can’t fight the varsity they’ve trained their entire careers to fight, well they’ll fight the regional middle school champs, thank you very much.

But the Colonels and Majors and Captains sending kids in companies and platoons out to get shot & blown apart & killed and not be able to return fire? To kill and die for… what?

Tennyson did not write,”To fight, to kill, to die and not to win.”

If we’re going to alter the ROE significantly enough to allow us to (gulp) win, then skip the entire nonsense & win with Ike. But sending our kids out to kill an enemy when we don’t believe in the cause enough to wage war – making all that killing for nothing and so grossly immoral – and sending our kids out to die fighting an enemy when we don’t believe in the cause enough to wage war – making all those kids dying for nothing and so grossly immoral… is stupid.

Can we kick a 4th-rate army’s ass? Sure – but why? Can we win any time we want? Sure – but we’ve chosen not to win since 1945. Why would this be different? The military wants to put men into Syria. Why? To not win? (If Trump wants to oust Assad – send a sniper. Drop a JDAM. His replacement will be worse – they always are.)

If we are going to wage war, then wage war. If whatever we are going to call it is not war then why are we spending so much money and spending (and taking) so many lives?

Wars aren’t won by killing the guys pointing guns at you – that’s how combat is won. Wars are won by killing nations and ideologies. If we aren’t going to kill radical islam, which we will never do via combat-without-war, then come home, arm up and get ready to fight the guys with guns in our own streets… and to allow radical islam to continue its virulent spread across modernity.

Radical islam will never be defeated with small arms or conventional weaponry wielded by Western nations of low fertility. Fact. No matter how many generals tell you, “Just another 150,000 men will do the trick.”

In 1966, we put another 150,000 men into Vietnam.

How’d that work out?

Straw Meets Camel’s Back?

Understanding that the Rule of Law no longer exists for politicians, MA State Rep Michelle DuBois (D-Brockton) violates the law and her oath of office to tip off felons of a pending raid by law enforcement, is “outed” for doing so and responds to the nation – by posting to social media a picture of her smilingly giving the middle finger to her constituents – and to the Rule of Law.

The Totalitarian State

Our rulers no longer care – and it seems we don’t care enough to make them.

Why would she care what we think about her lawbreaking? It’s not as though we ever fire anyone, ever re-elect at a rate below 85%, have any ability to take the State to court, can refuse pay our taxes – and her salary. Lerner committed felonies. Holder committed felonies. Lynch committed felonies. Comey committed felonies. Hillary committed felonies. Obama committed felonies. Clapper committed felonies.

Consistently flouting the law has only two historical outcomes – descent into tyranny – the goal of the Left – or violent rebellion – which they are daring us to start, and which, too, likely will result in a descent into tyranny.

America is a nation under the Rule of Law: Either we take back our birthright – or we surrender it. No Plan C exists.

Like it or not, life’s choices at the crunch are binary. Where the rubber meets the road there is no gray, only black or white, wrong or right, law or totalitarianism.

Given the reaction to our ballot-box protest on 8 Nov, no one in government cares what We the People want. So it’s probably time to make them care.

It’s all right there in the Declaration of Independence.

Will anything change until everything is burned down? Who knows? It’s looking increasingly unlikely.

Now that the fight has begun – and her action, as well as those of Koskinen, Lerner, Obama, Comey, Hillary all are fights against the Rule of Law and America – the fight only can accelerate on either side: Either we take back control quickly – or they win and destroy America, equally quickly.

Under the pretense that the GOP supported Constitutional government under the Rule of law, we have given the GOP everything they asked for – and they are slow-walking and allowing delays on presidential appointments & SCOTUS that, as the majority, they need not do or allow.

It was a false pretense.

They are not enforcing the Constitution or the law on Obama or Hillary or anyone in that administration (IRS, DoJ, etc), and have no intention, it seems, in governing according to OUR wishes – and we are supposed to be in charge.

The legislative branch refuses its role of checking the executive branch. The executive branch accepts unconstitutional checks on powers reserved to the executive. All the branches ignore the Constitution they are sworn to uphold. No branch accepts what We the People want OUR government to do or not do. By our lack of reaction, we are OK with this.

I’m not. Are you?

Self-government and the Rule of Law have, to the Ruling Class, become a joke. We “protest” at the ballot box but keep telling ourselves that we just need “a bit more time” or “more compromise”. We’re allowing patience and compromise to destroy our nation. I am sick and tired of it.

If you have kids and you are not angry as hell at what our government is doing, either you’re not paying attention or you desire totalitarianism – it’s just “easier.”

“Backlash”

A young German woman on her way to work nonchalantly is pushed in front of an oncoming train in Berlin – murdered. Pedestrians are run down and killed in the street in Britain. France. Australia…

And muslims “fear backlash.”

They ought to fear backlash – not from what our governments will do – but what Western governments should do, and what the citizens of the West MUST do for the West to survive. That they do NOT fear backlash is the problem.

There will be only one winner in this clash. If one looks across history one finds that the winner will be the side fighting for ideology – not for cost-benefit.

The American colonists fought for ideology – liberty & self-government; the Brits fought for cost-benefit. Civil War? The South wanted to be left alone – the Northern soldier fought to preserve the Union and squash slavery. WW2? The Allies fought for freedom & liberty, Imperial Japan for a larger empire, NAZI Germany for lebensraum. Korea? Vietnam? America fought for cost-benefit, the Norks and VC/NVA for ideology.

Who is fighting for ideology now? Islam. Who is, at best (when fighting at all), fighting for cost-benefit in yet another limited war of attrition against an ideological foe willing to strap bombs on women and kids, an illiterate, pre-modern, tribal foe that burns to death co-religionists who are not completely on-board with THEIR ideology?

No amount of wishing it were different can make it so. No amount of pretense that they want what we want and are just misunderstood or need a job will change this. They must be killed in sufficient numbers to stop them – or they will conquer the West.

We’ve killed a million already in this “limited” war. Had we just nuked Riyadh on day one, we’d have killed a helluva lot fewer – and probably been done a decade ago. Had we nuked Mecca & Medina in addition, we STILL would’ve killed fewer — and no Americans — and been done by now. Would we have muslims killing us in the street?

They are now…

The longer we wait, the more civilized people islam will kill – and the more muslims we will have to kill to stop them.

How many more 20-yr-old women on their way to work are we willing to sacrifice to political correctness and the ignorant fallacy that we can force on a non-Western culture the uniquely Western philosophy of “coexistence”? Do you grasp the imperialistic nature of demanding another culture adopt this Western philosophy – and the irony of referring to this imperialism as “multiculturalism”?

How many never-to-be fathers of authors, artists, entrepreneurs lie dead on a foreign sand dune because they were sent to fight battles our leadership gave them neither the tools nor the ROE to fight? How many more young women like the German this morning will leave behind no future generations, no possible doctors, playwrights, sculptors or CEOs because our leaders and the totalitarian half of our population (that doesn’t believe in the future enough to populate it), ignorantly fantasize ‘we are all the same’?

How many more pedestrians going about their business must violently and mercilessly be run-down by the 7th Century before we stop – just STOP – putting up with this?

How much more of our own civilization are we willing to sacrifice to this tribal, violent, savage, barbaric ideology of totalitarianism, this cult of might-makes-right with a deity who ordered his followers to kill their daughters, stone their women, behead their children and murder all before them – before we recognize that, no, we are NOT willing to have our future generations killed, no, we are NOT willing to halt or regress a millennium of progress, no, we are NOT willing to accept this brutality in the name of – in the name of anything?

I am so tired of hearing – “but there are a billion of them.”

So what?

So that’s going to inform… what, exactly, in this fight?

We surrender because there are a potential of a billion subhumans with knives and IEDs? That’s the plan?

We give up liberty, freedom, human/women’s/children’s/gay rights, self-determination, freedom of speech and association, self-government… because a billion illiterates want us to?

That’s the plan?

Newsflash: We have nuclear weapons. There are no innocent bystanders in war – and don’t conflate combat with war – they are different things. This is – for them – war. It needs to be war for us, too. OR WE WILL LOSE. Our enemy has gone all-in, are using everything they have. Knives, cars, trucks, airliners…. pushing a woman into an oncoming locomotive… 

We must go all-in, as well. 

The idea that we are so almighty powerful that they won’t be able to beat us and so ultimately will quit the fight has been disproved in all of the fights above. You don’t think the British Empire was more powerful than a bunch of semi-organized draftee farmers freezing to-death in the Colonies? It’s been proven in our lifetimes in Korea, Vietnam – and in S Asia as a bunch of illiterates with small arms have tied-down the most powerful military in the history of the known universe for 15 YEARS.

If we keep doing what we’ve been doing, we will get the result we’ve always gotten in limited war: WE WILL LOSE.

It’s we, as we have in all previous wars of attrition with primitives, who will quit the field.

The “field” we will quit is Western Civilization.

If they do conquer the West – and look around, free speech has been outlawed in Canada and Western Europe already in the name of islam; the free speech we voluntarily are surrendering DEFINES Western Civilization – if islam conquers us, 1,400 years of death, disease, science, literature, art will have to be fought, survived, cured, invented, painted, written and sculpted… just to get back to where we are today.

Only idiots can think that is a good idea. Only the childless cannot care that if the West falls, the carnage of the last millennia will have to recur.

(Who are predominantly childless? The same political party across the West that refuses to fight, rejects free speech and individual liberty and demands Statism… The same Western Governments that refuse this call to defend the liberty, to protect and defend the lives of their citizens, with which they were entrusted.)

In fact, it’ll be worse. Those desiring liberty didn’t have to fight tens of millions of subhumans with small arms, or a Pakistan or Iran with nuclear weapons – they just had to fight a few thousand fellow-Westerners with swords and axes and, finally, muskets.

And only truly ignorant post-religious people who not only don’t believe in religion – they don’t believe anyone else does, either (“How did he win? I don’t know anyone who voted for him?”) – are unable to imagine that people do fight, kill and die for ideology.

You think the burning of the library at Alexandria was an irreplaceable loss? Wait until the Louvre is burned, Europe’s libraries and museums put to the torch, her statuary hammered into gravel. My brother was fortunate enough to see the gigantic Buddha in Afghanistan. No one else will… ever again.

Mona Lisa, anyone?

The loss of liberty? Incalculable. Will by some similar strange chance, in another 1400 years, come again a Jefferson and a Madison? What are the odds?

Why are we taking this chance?

The West MUST begin defending itself and start KILLING ITS ENEMY.

Its enemy… is islam. All of it. 

It must be destroyed, wiped from the face of the earth. Its cities razed, its leadership killed, its worshipers killed or converted or allowed to die off in discouragement as their “strong horse”… wasn’t, and salt sown in its poppy fields.

Either we go Carthaginian… or we go extinct.

It is childish, and existentially foolish, to pretend otherwise.
