"As we watch and listen to all the Democrat Party candidates running
for the nomination of their party, it is tantamount to enduring the Chinese water torture.
The blah, blah, blah goes on and nothing of value comes out except the pain of listening
to the same nothingness over and over again. I wont take the time or space to repeat
what you have heard so many, mind numbing times over the past months but what you have not
heard is crucial.
I must also fault President Bush and the administration spokesmen for not
telling the American people what they really need to know about this war. If
they dont do that sometime between now and November it may cost them the election.
It Did Not Start on 9/11
The war we are now facing did not begin on September 11, 2001, nor will it
end with the peaceful transition to civilian authorities in Iraq, whenever that may be. In
fact, Iraq is but a footnote in the bigger context of this encounter, but an important one
none the less.
This war is what the Jihadists themselves are calling the Third
Great Jihad and are doing so within the framework of a time line which reaches back
to the very creation of Islam in the Seventh century and their attempts to recreate the
dynamics which gave rise to the religion in the first two hundred years of its existence.
No religion in history grew as fast, in its infancy, than did Islam and
the reasons for this growth are not hard to explain when you understand what the world was
like at the time of Muhammads death in 632 AD. The Western Roman Empire was in ruins
and the Eastern Empire was based in Constantinople and trying desperately to keep the
power of its early grandeur while transitioning to Christianity as a de facto state
religion. The costs to the average person were unbearable as he was being required to meet
the constantly rising taxes levied from the state along with the tithes coerced by the
Church. What Islam offered was the carrot or the sword.
If you became a convert, your taxes were immediately eliminated, as was
your tithe. If you didnt, you faced death. The choice was not hard for most to make,
unless you were a very devoted martyr in the making. At the beginning, even the theology
was not too hard for most to swallow, considering that both Jewry and Christianity were
given their due by the Prophet. There is but one God-Allah, and Muhammad is His Prophet,
as was Jesus, and the pre-Christian Jewish prophets of the Torah (old testament). Both
were called children of the book, the book being the Koran, which replaced
both the Old and New testaments for Christians and Jews.
With this practical approach to spreading the word Islam grew
like wild fire, reaching out from the Saudi Arabian Peninsula in all directions. This
early growth is what the Muslims call the first great Jihad and it met with
little resistance until Charles Martel of France, the father of Charlemagne, stopped them
in the battle of Tours in France, after they had firmly established the religion on the
Iberian peninsula. This first onslaught against the West continued in various forms and at
various times until Islam was finally driven out of Spain in 1492 at the battle of
The second great jihad came with the Ottoman Turks. This
empire succeeded in bringing about the downfall of Constantinople as a Christian
stronghold and an end to Roman hegemony in all of its forms. The Ottoman Empire was
Islams most successful expansion of territory even though the religion itself had
fractured into warring sects and bitter rivalries with each claiming the ultimate truths
in the ways of the Prophet. By 1683 the Ottomans had suffered a series of
defeats on both land and sea and the final and failed attempt to capture Vienna set the
stage for the collapse of any further territorial ambitions and Islam shrunk into various
sheikhdoms, emir dominated principalities, and roving tribes of nomads. However, by this
time a growing anti-western sentiment, blaming its internal failures on anyone but
themselves, was taking hold and setting the stage for a new revival know has Wahhabism
which came into full bloom under the House of Saud on the Arabian peninsula shortly before
the onset of WWI. It is this Wahhabi version of Islam which has infected the religion
itself, now finding adherents in almost all branches and sects, especially the Shiites.
What this sect calls for is the complete and total rejection of anything and everything
which is not based in the original teachings of The Prophet and it finds its most glaring
practice in the policies of the Afgani Taliban or the Shiite practices of the late
Ayatollah Khomeini in Iran. Its Ali Pasha (Field Marshall) is now known as Osama bin
Laden, the leader of the third Jihad.
Jimmy Carter sets the stage
The strategy for this holy war did not begin with the planning
of the destruction of the World Trade Center. It began with the plans for toppling the
Shah of Iran back in the early 1970s and culminated with his exile in 1979. With his
plans and programs to westernize his country, along with his close ties to the
U.S. and subdued acceptance of the State of Israel, the Shah was the soft target.
Thanks, in large part to the hypocritical and disastrous policies of the
Jimmy Carter State Department the revolution was set into motion, the Shah was deposed,
his arm forces scattered or murdered and stage one was complete. The Third Jihad now had a
base of operations and the oil wealth to support its grand design or what they call the
The Great Caliphate
What this design calls for is the replacement of all secular leadership in
any country with Muslim majorities. This would include, Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan,
Indonesia, all the Emirates, Sudan, Tunisia, Libya, Algeria, Morocco, Yemen, Syria,
Lebanon, Jordan and finally what they call the occupied territory Israel.
As a part of this strategy, forces of the jihad will infiltrate
governments and the military as a prelude to taking control, once the secular leadership
is ousted or assassinated. Such was the case in Lebanon leading to the Syrian occupation
and what was attempted in Egypt with the murder of Anwar Sadat, along with the multiple
attempts on the lives of Hussein in Jordan, Mubarak of Egypt and Musharraf in Pakistan.
Pakistan is a particular prize because of its nuclear weapons.
The long-range strategy of the Third Jihad counts on three strategic
goals. 1. The U.S. withdrawing from the region just as it did in Southeast Asia, following
Vietnam. 2. Taking control of the oil wealth in the Muslim countries, which would be
upwards to 75% of known reserves, and 3. Using nuclear weapons or other WMDs to annihilate
Israel. A further outcome of successfully achieving these objectives would be to place the
United Nations as the sole arbiter in East/West negotiations.
Evidence of the Bush Administration awareness of this plan is found in the
facts that immediately following the 9/11 attack, their first move was to shore up
Pakistan and Egypt, believing that these two would be the next targets for al Qaeda while
Americans focused on the disaster in New York. The administration also knew that the most
important objective was to send a loud and clear message that the U.S. was in the region
to stay, not only to shore up our allies but to send a message to the Jihadists. The
attack on Afghanistan was necessary to break-up a secure al Qaeda base of operations and
put their leadership on the run or in prison.
The war on Iraq also met a very strategic necessity in that no one knew
how much collaboration existed between Saddam Hussein and the master planners of the Third
Jihad or his willingness to hand off WMDs to terrorist groups including the PLO in Israel.
What was known, were serious indications of on-going collaboration, as Saddam funneled
money to families of suicide bombers attacking the Israelis and others in Kuwait.
What the U.S. needed to establish was a significant base of operations
smack dab in the middle of the Islamic world, in a location which effectively cut it in
half. Iraq was the ideal target for this and a host of other strategic reasons.
Leadership of various anti-American groups both here and abroad understood
the vital nature of the Bush initiative and thus launched their demonstrations,
world-wide, to Stop The War. Failing this, they also laid plans to build a
political campaign inside the country, with the War in Iraq as a plebiscite, using a
little know politician as the thrust point; Howard Dean. This helps to explain how quickly
the Radical Left moved into the Dean campaign with both people and money, creating what
the clueless media called the Dean Phenomenon.
By building on the left-wing base in the Democrat party and the Hate
Bush liberals, the campaign has already resulted in a consensus among the aspirants,
minus Joe Lieberman, to withdraw the U.S. from Iraq and turn the operation over to the
U.N. And, if past is prologue, i.e. Vietnam, once the U.S. leaves it will not go back
under any circumstances, possibly even the destruction of Israel.
Should George W. Bush be defeated in November and a new administration
come to power we could expect to see the dominoes start to fall in the secular Islamic
countries and The Clash of Civilizations would then become a life changing event in all of
What surprised the Jihadists following the 9/11 attack was how American
sentiment mobilized around the president and a profound sense of patriotism spread across
the country They were not expecting this reaction, based on what had happened in the past,
nor were they expecting the determined resolve of the President himself. I believe that
this is one of the reasons we have not had any further attacks within our borders. They
are content to wait, just as one of their tactical mentors, V.I. Lenin
admonished two steps forward, one step back.
A couple of additional events serve as valuable footnotes to the current
circumstances we face: the destruction of the human assets factor of the CIA during the
Carter presidency, presided over by the late Senator Frank Church and Carters CIA
Director, Admiral Stansfield Turner. This fact has plagued our intelligence agencies right
up to this very day with consequences which are now obvious. Jimmy Carter is the one man
who must bear the bulk of the responsibility for setting the stage of the Third Jihad.
Americans should find little comfort in how the Democrat contenders constantly seek the
advice and counsel of this despicable little hypocrite who now prances around
with his Nobel Prize, while attacking President Bush with almost as much venom as his
fellow Nobel Laureate, Yassir Arafat.
Lastly, we should not expect to see any meaningful cooperation from
Western Europe, especially the French. Since failing to protect their own interests in
Algeria by turning the country over to the first of the Arab terrorists, Amid Ben Bella,
the country itself is now occupied by Islamic immigrants totally twenty percent of the
We are in the battle of our lives which will go on for many years possibly
even generations. If we fail to understand what we are facing or falter in the challenge
of knowing our enemy the results will be catastrophic.
PART II (May 1, 2004)
Since writing the above, we have witnessed some frightening evidence in
support of our hypothesis both internally and in other parts of the world.
The al Qaeda bombing in Madrid has emboldened our enemy into believing it
can use terror as an instrument for democratic regime change. Based on what happened
there, they may be right.
Kerry and bin Laden on the same page
John Kerry and other leaders of his party constantly refer to the United
States as acting unilaterally. They give no credit whatsoever to countries
like Great Britain, Poland, Italy, Australia or even tiny Honduras for putting their
limited armed forces in harms way to support the U.S. led coalition in Iraq. It is
little wonder that some are considering doing what Spain has donepulling out. The
leaders in these countries have spent considerable political capital in this effort, and
have little to show for it as it relates to fostering good will with the American public.
Couple that fact with Osama bin Ladins latest offer of withholding attacks on those
who quit the coalition and you have all the elements for a Democrat party
fostered self-fulfilling prophecy where the U.S. will be totally alone in the
pacification of Iraq. John Kerry and the Bush critics persist in the lie of
the U.S. going it alone in Iraq but Osama bin Laden knows differently and will
use the Kerry rhetoric to help isolate the U.S. The terrorists now see themselves as
political king-makers. They may be right.
Another aspect of the anti-Bush political axis is how both his
political enemies and the main stream media take ghoulish delight in the body
count, just as they did in the later days of Vietnam. Oh sure, they pay incidental
homage to the memory of the young Americans who gave their lives in the greatest threat
this country has ever faced, but they do so with all the sincerity of Madonna making a vow
of chastity. As the body bags grow in number, they believe, so grows their political
prospects. They may be right.
If the Bush administration is further weakened in the months leading up to
the November elections, we will witness a heightened al Qaeda offensive in all parts of
the world, including our own country, and especially in Iraq and nations surrounding it
,i.e., Pakistan, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Events within the past few days in Jordan
not only make this argument but also point to the possibility of what happened to
Iran and Syria are daily growing more overt and bold in their support of insurgents within
Iraq, believing that Bush has been so hurt by internal politics that he is powerless to
act against them in any meaningful way. They may be right.
The Leftwing initiative, Political Correctness and Our Will to Win
Within our own country we are witnessing and almost insane application of
political correctness. As the barbarism of radical Islam grows more apparent
in the streets of the Middle East from Gaza to Basra, we see a cultural suicide taking
place within our own schools and communities.
Our children are being taught from the Koran, our professors are preaching
intifadah in their class rooms, and Muslim call to prayer loud speakers are
blaring out from city halls. The more precarious our very existence becomes, the more our
liberal brethren embrace their enemies. It is a Stockholm Syndrome which can only lead to
the recruitment of young Muslims who will be willing to duplicate in the West what their
co-religionists are doing in the streets of Israel and the market places of Baghdad. The
liberal P.C. crowd say nothing about the silence of the Muslim religious leadership as it
relates to the carnage of innocents but couldnt speak out fast enough against the
inspiration supplied to tens of millions of Christians by Mel Gibsons The Passion of
the Christ. They were put off by the movies violence and its alleged
fostering of anti-Semitism. Movies must represent their reality as
the real thing moves them not at all. Among liberal Jews in America, hatred of George W.
Bush is only surpassed by their contempt for Ariel Sharon Let them explain it, I am
at a total loss to do so. Maybe they just miss seeing Bill Clinton smooching Yassir Arafat
in the White House Rose Garden.
The Reverend Jesse Jackson is now calling the U.S.
guilty of crimes against humanity as he sets out to mobilize the non-Islamic
Left. None of the Democrat leadership says a word in opposition to Jacksons treason
or Hillarys attacks on the President and U.S. policy in an Arabic newspaper, while
in London. You can bet that al Jezeera didnt miss a beat in their reporting of both
The campaign takes its toll
The campaign is seriously hurting Mr. Bushs leadership role in the
War on Terror. While ducking every new book critical of his initiative or trying to
counter the partisan nitpicking of the 9/11 Commission, he has persisted in the
misbegotten insistence of installing democracy in Iraq. Our purpose for being
in that beleaguered country should be restricted to one purpose and one purpose only, to
stop the expansion of The Third Jihad and provide a base for doing same in the neighboring
areas. This can be done by sealing the borders, attacking anything that moves in violation
of same and by making it clear to Syria and Iran that any participation on their part will
be considered an act of war. Let the country be governed by the local tribes,
Shiite in the south, Sunni in the central and Kurds in the north with a U.S. pro consul
overseeing the military. Oil revenues could be spilt by population allocation. How about
installing a Republic it worked pretty well here with diverse populations.
The very idea that we should spend our sons and daughters blood or our tax
dollars on trying to building a democracy in the region which has neither a
history nor a desire for such, is sheer nonsense. The very essence of Islamic teaching
speaks directly against this principle. Continuing on the current path can only result in
fostering greater hatred for the Great Satan. Force is the only thing which is
respected in that part of the world and this force need not be tied to reform.
I suggest Mr. Rumsfled acquaint himself with a copy of Julius Caesars Gallic Wars
and Sun Tsus Art of War. All the tactics and strategies necessary to subdue the
Iraqi insurgents can be found in those two military gems. One way out is for Bush to have
the wisdom to push the Muslim on Muslim killing button, if after clobbering Fujullah the
Iraqis don't followup and help kill the insurgents, is to kick off a ME Sunni vs Shia'
Civil War. Turn the Arab's murderous hatred upon themselves like a bunch of hienas as we
sit back and watch from fortified encampments. Then whack the wounded out of bullets and
bombs remainders in 2 weeks time as a few ME despot governments fall. Then start the
process over again if Iraq chooses not to follow GWB's plan in Afganistan.
Please not the UN
Bringing the U.N. to the party will only compound the problem without
adding any accountability. The U.N. has been accused of many things over the years, but
being a democratic institution has never been one of them. Just the latest
scandal of the Oil for Food program should provide any thinking person with
all the evidence they need to keep the U.N. at bay. But this doesnt seem to bother
the likes of the John Kerrys of the world who prattle on as if the scam doesnt
Just one example will make my case; the UN mandate in Israel, which has
been in place since 1948. One more salient point needs to be made on this subject. There
is no such thing as The International Community. There are only individual
countries, each with its own agenda which is always self serving. The myth of a higher
level of moral authority coming out of the UN as been one of the greater lies
of the past half century, but it is a lie which persists in spite of a bloody record of
hypocrisy, graft, genocide and perpetual war for perpetual peace. I have a
suggestion for the 9/11 Commission:.Why dont they look into what the UN was doing
before the attack on the World Trade Center? If they do, they will find that exactly one
week before, the UN was holding a Conference on Racism in Durbin, South Africa where the
delegates voted overwhelmingly to condemn Israel, as racist and terrorist. The
U.S., Canadian and Israeli delegates walked out in disgust. Nary a word was uttered about
Saddam Hussein, al Qaeda, or the Taliban, to say nothing of what was happening in Rwanda
while they crunched caviar on toast and washed it down with vintage Champaign. Genocide
does not qualify as racism according to the UN morality. Neither
we nor the world needs the UN to muck up what is already a very delicate situation. If
given proper leadership every Middle Eastern country named above will throw in with the
Coalition, for if they dont they will be the next targets of the Third Great Jihad
and the Great Caliphate. Pakistan is already showing the leadership which others will
follow. What do you think moved Kadahaffi to cozy up to the U.S. and Great Britain? He
fears the Jihadist more than he hates us.
Evil Does Exist
Our current crises, in meeting the threat of the Third Jihad, is one more
example of how most Americans simply refuse to believe there is evil in this world and are
willing to grant moral equivalence on any human action. Unless the crime is personalized
such as in the case of Lacy Peterson, we lose interest quickly and become bored or at
least not involved.
To try and understand what we are facing, look into the eyes of your son
or grandson and try to fathom a mind which would take pride in strapping a bomb to his
body and sending him out to kill himself and countless innocent people. Or in the case of
your daughter or grand daughter, try to imagine a religion which commands you to mutilate
her vagina to destroy her sex drive or demands you to stone her to death if she has sexual
relations with a man other than of your choosing.
If you can comprehend these facts both intellectually and emotionally,
then you will start to understand what we are facing in the months and years ahead, both
at home and abroad. The radicals of Islam will stop at nothing to destroy us and
all we stand for. They see this war as their entry to paradise and a
release from the miserable existence they have built for themselves within the confines of
an evil and perverse religion. The Jihadist are NOT like us, nor most of their fellow
Muslims. But, like terrorists everywhere they have silenced any criticisms from fellow
Muslims through threat and intimidation and have, with the help of the useful
idiots in the West, created the appearance of popular support.
If we are incapable of understanding these realities and acting
accordingly, within the life time of everyone who reads these words, we will see our
cherished way of like cease to exist and chaos become our lot....."
GWB plans on disarming Islam. He's shown the Islamic world a resolve
unheard of in a US President who they've manipulated for 50 years with their series of
lies and promises. The Clash of Civilizations is now reaching out and touching all of us.
May God grant us the wisdom and the courage to meet the challenge. Maybe Bush will
alongside Israel bomb the hell out of Iran's Nuke plants as a bow shot to Islam and WMD
suppliers like N. Korea....regardless of the election outcome. Call it his legacy to a
more peaceful world with one less threat for the liberal socialists to contend with and
the UN to dodge.
