Rendezvous With Destiny - Part 2

"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do." ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Often times I wonder how the historians of the future will look back on the events that led up to World War III and find themselves perplexed at how the "greatest generation" could have given birth to the what could quite conceivably come to be known as the "worst generation", a generation that chose disgrace over danger.

Before going into the consequences or the reasons for our inability to act decisively against Islamic totalitarianism, imagine for just a moment that in the aftermath the attacks of 11 September that the United States had a precedent for the challenges ahead that we faced.

Interestingly enough, that precedent that can be found in a telegram sent from Secretary of State James F. Byrnes in 1945, transmitting the radio remarks of John Carter Vincent, head of the Office of Far Eastern Affairs, to General Douglas MacArthur, the supreme commander of the Allied Powers in Japan.


The telegram reads:

"QUOTE -- Shintoism, insofar as it is a religion of individual Japanese, is not to be interfered with. Shintoism, however insofar as it is directed by the Japanese Government, and is a measure enforced from above by the government, is to be done away with. People will not be taxed to support National Shinto and there will be no place for Shintoism in the schools. Shintoism as a state religion -- National Shinto, that is -- will go. Our policy on this goes beyond Shinto. The dissemination of Japanese militaristic and ultra-nationalistic ideology in any form will be completely suppressed. And the Japanese Government will be required to cease financial and other support of Shinto establishments -- UNQUOTE."

In a paper entitled "No Substitute for Victory" The Defeat of Islamic Totalitarianism, John David Lewis cites a "nation's moral self-confidence" as the main reason for our impotence and inability to act decisively. This is not a paper that you should read, it is a paper that you must read despite it's length.

While not with the same eloquence and prose, much of the what Dr. Lewis mentions with regards to our inability to act has been often cited here. Dr. Lewis liberally cites multiculturalism as a factor that inhibits us to act and also cites the resolve needed to "filet the political attributes from the religion of Islam" as an imperative if we are ever going to ensure peace, two subjects that have often been addressed here. In part three I will endeavour to expand on the reasons for our inability to act and how Hizb ut-Tahrir might actually present us with one last chance.

  1. Them as have not learned from the frackups of history are condemned to repeat the lesson (paraphrase).

    We've been in this World War for over a hundred years, ever since the Brits went in and went "jihadi" on the Turks who had no problem with the 'spoldeydope routine that has since been rekindled world-wide (except, maybe, Antarctia and the Artic).

    The problem is the world, as a whole (them as aren't practicing taquiyya or kitman anyhow) fail to realize that we are in a world-wide RELIGIOUS world war. Thankfully more are waking up to the clear and present danger AKA a certain snake nurtured at our breats. That's the nastiest one that can be. There are NO formal borders between countries. There are zero uniforms used by the ones who've declared war on us for daring to want to commit the "crime" of surviving while their moon god demands our deaths (fast or slow, it boils down to the same thing). All there is is the calls for our deaths, that we be mutiliated and humilitated, and that anyone not of the "people of the book" be killed outright. All dhimmitude does is guarantee that you get to lick your masters feet as your daughter is ravaged, your son loses his manhood, and that if you raise ONE word of protest or fail to do any ONE of the humiliating things demanded by those of the "religon of peace" is that your day to meet your maker was postponed until the RoPers decided they could do without you or your services. Read the Qur'an, the Haddiths, and the Sura and wake up before your head is at your feet!

    Think I'm joking? Look at the religious wars in what was once Europe, the Crusades, the wars between the Protestants and the Catholics, and see the destruction and untold horrendous deaths from these wars. Ireland in recent memory ring anyone's bells? There NEVER has been "mercy" or "compassion" when it comes to a religous war, and more especially is that the case in a world-wide religious war.

    The Brits, when they said "ENOUGH" to the musselmen in Turkey who were pulling their same old chit now as then meant exactly that. There was no mercy to man, woman, child, young or old. That is the only thing the "religion of peace" understands, for it is all it offers everyone not an adhearant to their particular sect, Imam, Mullah, Caliph, or whatever the flavor of the day is. I acknowledge I'm going to be called a barbarian here ( We are past time to pull a Brit reprise and send these dogs back where they belong. Howling under their Moon God's shadow while civilization progresses and they lick their wounds until MAYBE one day they come to their senses. But I wouldn't bet on it.

    Governments of the west, time to do your duty and protect your civilizaition, your laws, the various things like the Constitution and Amendments which you SWORE to uphold. DO NOT let down those brave warriors of the coalition for want of gonads, expediency on your part, or lining your safes and wallets with blood money. Do not make the mistake of forswearing the oaths you took before your gods when you took your offices.
