Changing the Rules

When one takes the long look of history, two errors of Western Civilization stand out above all others.

The first, US entry into WW1, birthed the USSR, Weimar Republic, NAZIs, WW2 ETO, Red China, Cold War, Korea & Vietnam, and Left hundreds of millions dead.

The second, Kuwait, with a familial epilogue of Afghanistan & Iraq, destroyed S Asia & the Middle East, created the largest immigration outside of war in human history and is in the process of destroying European civilization and attacking America.

Both of these mistakes were by individuals insisting on defining the roles of other nations […]

The columnist goes to great lengths to inform the reader of the theological background and actions and behaviors of the ISIS savages. The online article includes a video interview of the columnist, including a discussion of how ISIS felt about the piece (they thought it […]
