    Editor’s Note: The 2016 race has unofficially begun, and the fear-based rhetoric that will drive it has been shaped as well. A Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll taken in conjunction with the Iowa Freedom Summit found that concern about terrorism ranked as the top issue among likely Republican caucus-goers, while likely Democrats were more concerned about unemployment and jobs.

    “(Terrorism) will be more of an issue than it has been in 2012 and 2008,” said Lai, who researches terrorism and the interaction between domestic politics and international relations. “With the rise of ISIS and the events in France, I think you’ll start to see more of a discussion of how the U.S. should address the terrorist threat.”

    As with the Bush years, where the 9/11 attacks drove the public into an easily-manipulated state of fear, the concerns about ISIS being a patented creation of Western intelligence while be obscured, while fear of the group, with highly publicized executions and brutal rampages, may likeley justify new ground wars, more military spending, even more spy powers and restricted respect for Americans’ rights.


    Manufactured Terror, Not the Economy, Will Dominate 2016 Election

    Propaganda and the endless horror of ISIS sensationalized by the establishment media will overshadow worries about the economy during the next election.

    According to McClatchy, terrorism is the number one issue dominating the political debate leading into next year’s election.

    Americans are increasingly worried about terrorist threats and want heightened readiness and a tough response. A recent Pew Research Center survey found combating terrorism inching ahead of the economy as Americans’ top priority for Obama and Congress. Two-thirds were concerned that the Islamic State was a major threat to this country.

    More than a decade has passed since the attacks of 9/11 and not one terror attack — excluding the highly suspicious and Hollywoodesque Boston marathon bombing — has occurred in America.

    The FBI has staged a large number of ludicrous terror plots, most planned by mentally deficient individuals manipulated by informants. Serious terror plots, however, are virtually nonexistent despite the endless hyperventilation by the establishment media.

    A person is more likely to be struck by lightning than end up a victim of a terrorist attack. Medical error, heart disease, accidents, cancer, and diabetes are more likely to strike down Americans, but these are not election season concerns.

    The drumbeat of horrors keeps the apprehension fresh. The beheadings of hostages, the killings at the offices of satirical Paris-based magazine Charlie Hebdo and the burning alive of Jordanian Lt. Moaz al Kasasbeh intensify the concern.

    Republicans, far more than Democrats, have for months sensed an opportunity to use terrorism policies to their advantage, and aren’t relenting.

    Citing Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and other Republicans, McClatchy makes the argument for ground troops to combat the U.S. military trained Islamic State.

    Although the media has largely refrained from showing the video of the alleged immolation of Jordanian pilot Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh, others have not displayed such squeamish as the march into yet another war is organized and propagandized.

    “Western media has fiercely debated the ethics of publishing execution videos released by the Islamic State jihadist group; some insist that showing the graphic images derived from them is, in fact, doing what ISIS wants. However, it would be difficult to argue that the reality of the terror group’s barbarism should be kept from the public — especially on a national security matter so relevant to the public interest,” writes Brandon Darby for Breitbart.

    “Breitbart News here provides the entire video of ISIS burning a Jordanian pilot alive. The complete evil of Islamist ideology is visible in the graphic video. Though controversial, it is the belief of senior management at Breitbart News that the horror of ISIS should be visible for national decision makers, the constituents who elect them, and the Americans who may be called upon to fight them.”

    Indeed, Americans may be “called upon” to sacrifice their lives to combat this manufactured threat, a threat that in no demonstrable way threatens the American people.

    Each supposed terror event — from questionable beheadings to unverified mass executions and now medieval death by fire — is being used to drum up the required consensus to keep the clash of civilizations agenda and the war on terror moving along its trajectory.

    Terror will undoubtedly be the centerpiece of the next election. Candidates will square off on what response should be followed, including sending yet more Americans to die.

    Republicans argue that weakness from the Obama administration, including the withdrawal of combat troops from Iraq, allowed the rise of the Islamic State. “We should not be surprised,” former Virginia Gov. James Gilmore said of Tuesday’s murder. “When the good guys step out and leave a void, the bad guys step in and fill it.”

    Bad guys, from al-Qaeda to al-Nusra and now the Islamic State, facilitated by the United States and its partners, primarily Saudi Arabia, the kingdom responsible for the Wahhabist fanaticism driving the ideology of the Islamic State and other Salafist terrorists.

    The war machine needs al-Qaeda and the Islamic State in the same way it previously needed an evil Soviet Union to legitimize the theft of trillions of dollars from Americans terrorized by the supposed prospect of thermonuclear annihilation.

    The Soviet threat, like today’s vastly overplayed threat of al-Qaeda and ISIS, was invented by the government and the military industrial complex.

    “As a growing number of historians have realized for years, the so-called Cold War was largely an illusion – known as ‘policy by press release’ – invented by the military industrial complex, the same folks who are selling us new wars and conjured-up threats from the likes of al-Qaeda and now the so-called Haqqani network,” I wrote in 2011.

    As the historian Antony Sutton documented, the Soviet Union’s greatly exaggerated prowess was the result of the transfer of technology from the West. An enfeebled Soviet Union with one foot in its agrarian past and led by a dysfunctional communist bureaucracy never seriously threatened the United States.

    Likewise, the Islamic State. It is not a threat, least of all to America. Iraq and Syria, two nations weakened by manufactured wars, would certainly be able to sufficiently deal with the threat of a few thousand jihadists if not for the meddling of the United States.

        So what is to talk about the CIA/Mossad/ Saudi assets? Most of these rag heads are from the shit hols of Libya/Saudi deserts but I love to remove some of the face masks from their leadership or be able to capture their speaking language. I’ll assure you not all speak arabic.

            ISIS is owned and operated by the USA, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, UAE, Yemen, and/or Israel. Anyone who doesn’t see this is either a fool, or not paying attention.

              You are correct, and a lot of the crap in the news is hollyweird lies. I personally seriously doubt the be headings and definitely doubt the Jordanian pilot was burned to death after looking closely at the pictures posted at daily mail.

              JMO, but I think they get a little bit more legitimacy every time they appear all over the internet and get attention. I think they should be ignored.

              I think more than ever that those who don’t believe YHWH sent Yeshua Ha Mashiach from heaven to earth to die for our sins, they need to do some soul searching and truth searching. You won’t find the truth in the institutionalized church buildings and you won’t find it in most bibles….all you will find in most those places is a pagan sun god being worshipped.

              The road is narrow, narrower than most think.

              Most everything we think from what the world has been taught is a lie.

                Calling a god god is like calling me a person. I have a name and so does He. Most of the stuff we have been taught through mistranslated scripture is half pagan.

                He has a name, people who love Him and want to have a relationship with Him would do good to call Him by name….there were many many pagan gods who were called gods. And it is not law vs. grace….it is law AND grace. We are still to follow the law and use the old testament. Observe the sabbath, the real one, not the one the catholic church sold out to so they could appeal to the pagan sun worshipers. And we are to keep the commandments and feasts.

          Finally people are starting to Wake Up. We’ve been beating the drum, even here at the SHTFPlan forum, but many Christian Egos have chosen False Pride, over the truth.

          “Christians Have Been Duped by Zionists”

          “Christian Zionism has led millions of so-called Christians to support war rather than peace, and the merciless killings of millions of people in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Palestine.”

          “What a horrendous perversion of the Gospel of Love! How can people who claim to follow Christ be so misled?! Because they have been fooled into believing the Bible teaches something it does not teach: Christian support of Israel. Israel is, in fact: antichrist, because Israel denies both the Father and the Son: “Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist–he denies the Father and the Son.” (1 John 2:22).”

          “Walk into any Christian bookstore in America and you will see how virtually everyone who calls themselves a follower of Jesus Christ in this nation has been tricked into believing a false theology, which leads them to believe, erroneously, that the Bible commands them to support the Jewish nation of Israel.”

          • grandee

            or not.

          • Plan twice, prep once

            I firmly believe that Israel has a destiny intended by God, but to hear folks continue to assign some kind of vile evil Zionist plan to the fact that I think you should just step away and let God work it out with Israel, it absurd to the point of baiting God.

            Beware, God really does have a plan for Israel and guess what? You don’t even need to get involved, just step aside, God really does know what he is doing. Either way you are insignificant in GOD’s plan. Your choices are however critical in your own salvation!

            The Jewish people aren’t perfect, but they are under attack by Satan, the bible clearly tells us this fact that Satan chooses to make war with the remnant of the woman who gave birth to the Lamb of God.

            You can either side with God, or you can side with Satan. There is no middle ground! Are the Jewish people perfect? No! Do you need to side with them in all things, No! Do you need to stand behind the will of GOD? Only a foolish or unsaved person would appose the will of GOD!

            • Plan twice, prep once

              Let me add, this president and many forces within the US would have you choose Islam over Israel. Really this is what it comes down to!

              As a Christian, do you have any scriptural reason to support Islam or to support Israel?

              Please provide a valid scriptural answer, or be damned!

              I can show you scriptural proof Islam is the Beast, lead by a false prophet. They built the abomination of desolation on the Temple Mount, which stands there to this day, and they to this day behead people for their faith. Islam was fatally wounded in the head and has had new life breathed into it, it s the beast!

              Choose well!

        • Richard Head

          I am astounded that so many people continue to fall for this crap. You could see this ISIS garbage coming a mile a way. Obama wants Assad out, Americas actually had the sense to say NO WAY JOSE. Most are war weary, Bin Laden’s dead (I know because Obama said so on TV one night)and Al-Qaida just doesn’t have that same scary ring anymore. So magically here comes the next boogeyman, ISIS, marching out of Syria, not too long after Obama started arming the “moderate” rebels:):) So, Driving their Humvees they go town to town raping and beheading babies, they burn and burry thousands of people alive, they crucify people in the public square (and I know because I saw pictures on the internet). They are so bad even evil Al-Qaida disavows them. Then they get some journalist, some technical support on video making, and with all their savagery, they at least have the decency to not show any actual beheading like all the videos from the early al-Qaida days. So then John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and pretty much everyone else agrees. We have to KILL THESE ANIMALS!!!!! Oh and btw we have to go into Syria and drop bombs on another sovereign nation AGAIN, without a declaration of war….. And I’ll be damned if everybody just opens wide and swallows the pill AGAIN!!!! God, please wake me from this Nightmare.

        Never , ever met anyone that thought ISIS was a threat at home .
        Who is “maufactureing” a crisis anyway ?

      9. Hbeacrealist

        9/11 was a false flag operation. So was the OKC bombing. Plain as day.

        WTC 7 didn’t magically blow itself up on 9/11. Plus, the MSM didn’t even cover the third fallen building.

        Called a cover-up. Duh.

        However, 95%+ of Americans can’t deal with the truth. Democrat or Republican. Don’t matter.

        AL-CIA-DUH/ISIS are both CIA/NWO relations that were brought about and funded under the Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton, Bush 2, and Obama administrations.

        Unfortunately, most can’t see the whole picture. The treason is off the charts.

        America is doomed.

        • Hammer's Thor

          Hmmm. A couple dozen clowns have “proof” that 9/11 was an inside job, a FF operation. A few dozen others state that the twin towers were brought down by explosives. On the other hand, THOUSANDS of scientists and engineers go on record stating just the opposite. Which makes more sense, that a conspiracy of enormous proportions requiring untold numbers of participants continues to be held together, after all these years, or evil human beings with flight training overpowered the pilots and flew aircraft loaded with fuel into the buildings, causing so much heat that the interior structures weakened enough to bring them down.

          Just because a few calls people who don’t believe the conspiracy idiots, does not mean that they are right.

          I submit that propaganda can be a very compelling tool regardless of which tale is being told. I believe that our government is wicked, way out of control, and intent on destroying our freedoms. That does not mean that I think they are even remotely competent enough to pull off something as vast as this. To think otherwise gives them much more credit than they can possibly deserve. Please consider not putting them on such a pedestal.

          • Hbeacrealist

            I think you got it wrong:

            Thousands of architects and engineers have signed on to AandETruth to say that it is scientifically impossible for the buildings to free fall.

            The main scientists that say otherwise work for the government—-NIST.

            And, yes, the elite are able to pull it off—just like they pulled off the Fed Reserve, Social Security, the Patrit Act, ObamaCare, etc….

              We’ll simply have to agree to disagree. I don’t believe it for a minute, and you are all-in. That’s okay, and I’m certain each of us can pull in as much “information and facts” as the other to make our point. Sure as heck doesn’t mean that I have any trust for the imperial federal government. Not for a minute.

          • the renegade braveheart

            Hammers, the OFFICIAL version of 9/11 is a total fabrication along with the 9/11 Commission’s report. There’s no theory about what really happened. It is fact that the government along with foreign entities killed 3000 Americans that day. Certain parts of the story we may never learn, but the fact is that the US govt. is responsible for 9/11.

            • Acid Etch

              Even if the government didn’t do it.

              They created armed trained and funded the people who did.

              Plus they gave the world a reason to hate us.

              Bitches.

      10. oUCH

        This article is BS IMO. Would you recommend that those living along the New Madrid should not expect an EQ just because one of significance hasn’t happened in a long time ? Based on the argument presented that I.S. is not a threat to the US because they haven’t quite made their presence felt here as yet is equally disingenuous. “Each supposed terror event — from questionable beheadings to unverified mass executions and now medieval death by fire…”… Really ?? REALLY ?? You have got to be kidding…. right ? Horse hockey.

        • Hammer's Thor

          Who knows what the SHTF event will be, but I think that a major terrorist attack in our country is not only likely, it may be imminent, and could trigger a larger SHTF episode.

          I have read and re-read and watched and re-watched many of the arguments that this is all staged, and false-flag, etc. The problem with conspiracy theories is that so many people have to be willing to keep their mouths shut. I don’t agree that our government is staging all of this so they can gain more power and control over us… they DON’T NEED TO!!! We’re giving it to them voluntarily!!! Not only that, but our government, as corrupt and evil as it is, is not organized or intelligent enough to present us with FF after FF after FF.

          These events are real, people all around the world hate us and want to kill us (some because of what they perceive we have done in the Middle East and elsewhere, but mostly due to religious ideology). The islamonazi’s want to rule the world with Sharia law, and they have been attacking us since the time of Thomas Jefferson (hence the creation of our Navy to thwart the islamo pirates).

          Could some of this be fabricated? Sure. All of it? Not a chance. Just because our government wants to take away all our rights and make us subjects, does not mean that the islamofacists don’t also want to destroy us.

          Keep working on your preps.

          “It does not appear that any government other than the Taliban financially supported al-Qaida before 9/11, although some governments may have contained al-Qaida sympathizers who turned a blind eye to al-Qaida’s fund-raising activities,” the commission’s report said. “Saudi Arabia has long been considered the primary source of al-
          Qaida funding, but we have found no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded the organization.”

          Well guess who was funding the Taliban prior to 9-11?

          George W. Bush and Colon Powell – Feb 2001 – Bush Gave Taliban $43 Million Four Months before 9/11

          http://www.thenation.com/doc/20010604/20010522
          Enslave your girls and women, harbor anti-US terrorists, destroy every vestige of civilization in your homeland, and the Bush Administration will embrace you. All that matters is that you line up as an ally in the drug war, the only international cause that this nation still takes seriously.

          That’s the message sent with the recent gift of $43 million to the Taliban rulers of Afghanistan, the most virulent anti-American violators of human rights in the world today. The gift, announced last Thursday by Secretary of State Colin Powell, in addition to other recent aid, makes the United States the main sponsor of the Taliban and rewards that “rogue regime” for declaring that opium growing is against the will of God. So, too, by the Taliban’s estimation, are most human activities, but it’s the ban on drugs that catches this administration’s attention.

          Never mind that Osama bin Laden still operates the leading anti-American terror operation from his base in Afghanistan, from which, among other crimes, he launched two bloody attacks on American embassies in Africa in 1998.

          Sadly, the Bush Administration is cozying up to the Taliban regime at a time when the United Nations, at US insistence, imposes sanctions on Afghanistan because the Kabul government will not turn over Bin Laden.

          Then GW Bush hided in Sarasota Florida on 9-11 reading my pet goat with the book upside down. And acted surprised, and said he saw the 2nd plane hit the towers on TV before it even happened. Oh there is a lot of BS going on in this country. Bush should be hung 1000 times along with Dickhead Cheney/ Rummy, Rice and Powell..

        I’m more concerned with Iran and North Korea. Idiots with nukes are a bigger problem and either country would be more likely to do it with subs. ISIS is not something to be worried about in the near future.

          Im more concerned with our domestic enemies than the foreign ones,
          The ones who are SUPPOSED to represent us are doing and have done far more damage than any ignorant foreign supposed terrorist will do. The fact that they have helped create this crap speaks volumes, people need to wake the hell up.

          • Hbeacrealist

            Yup. These domestic traitors that have destroyed our currency, put us trillions in debt, poison the food supply, and tax us to death are who we need to worry about first.

            IMO, they have us set up to be nuked or hit by an EMP.

            Oh, these traitorous scum will be fine. They got there underground bases and secured forts, which we have blessed them with by providing then with large amounts of our tax dollars!

        Probably the easiest way to loose a conflict -a war- is to underestimate your enemy.

        • WhoWuddaThunkIt

          Jonathon. The easiest way to loose a war or conflict is NOT to get into one in the first place. The US never learns and has not won any wars in a long time. The Term Dept of Defense should be called the Department of illegal invasions and loss of blood and treasure

            The US has not lost a war declarded , Take your RT bullshit and shove it .
            As for the US , military actions , policeing actions and kinetic bullshit is just that.
            Declare a war or stay home.

      13. Mr Smith

        ISIS has lit a fire alright by burnig a piolet to death but lets not forget the USA used napalm and flame thrower tanks before now.

        You must do as bankers in Washington want and demand the US goes after ISIS because they need that excuse so they can invade Syria and bring down a government that is also under attack by ISIS

        Don’t ask questions about finance for the groups coming from our Saudi friends (Who hate Russia, hence oil price wars) and also Israel who bombs the Syrian army when they corner ISIS fighters and are about to do some damage.

        We want war, We want war, We want war even if Russia steps in and releases nuclear bombs on our heads, We want war so our corrupt bankers can escape free.

        • Jonathon

          The U.S. didn’t use flame throwers and napalm on captured prisoners to execute them.

          For that matter, the U.S. doesn’t practice the wanton execution of prisoners as a common and routine matter as ISIS and Islam in general does.

        The Lesson of Greece: Only Collapse Makes Real Change Possible

        http://www.oftwominds.com/blogfeb15/collapse-change2-15.html

        “Of the many lessons we can learn from Greece’s difficult path to rejection of debt-serfdom, the most important is perhaps the most obvious: no real change is possible until the Status Quo can no longer fulfill its promises, i.e. it effectively collapses.”

        “The powerless classes were stripmined first. Bamboozled into voting for the Kleptocracy in previous elections, the powerless lower classes felt the brunt of austerity for the simple reason the kleptocracy knew there would be no blowback, as long as a few shreds of swag were being distributed.

        This highlights the critical role of complicity in maintaining a corrupt, venal and parasitic kleptocracy: the passivity and silence of recipients of social welfare are bought very cheaply, as these classes will fear the loss of the miserable coins tossed to them.

        This fear is a potent form of financial terrorism: any resistance or protest might trigger the loss of the reduced social welfare benefits, and so the powerless choose to remain powerless rather than rise up and take the risk of bringing down the parasitic kleptocracy.”

        ISIS is just one finger on the claw of Valerie Jarret, whose hand is guided by the Mullahs and the international Communist disease. By itself maybe not a huge threat, but ISIS is not all by itself.

        • Hammer's Thor

          Valerie Jarret is one scary woman. http://conservativereport.org/benghazi-valerie-jarrett-cic/
          It indeed appears that the obama asks “how high?” when Jarret tells him to jump. She may very well be the most dangerous person in this country, even more so than Hillary Clinton.

          My plan for protecting our country (the U.S., all you Brits are on your own) is simple:
          1. Close the border, and shoot anyone who comes across illegally
          2. Kick everyone out who is not here legally
          4. Kick out anyone who’s visa has expired (see #2) and renew ZERO visas
          5. Shut down the NSA, the DOE, the EPA, ATF, IRS and the FED
          6. Shoot down ALL Russian aircraft that violate our airspace, and send the Russians a bill for the missile
          7. Eliminate ALL gun laws. Require every American to own at least one pistol and one long gun, and to always carry their weapon
          8. Enforce the Constitution
          9. Jail the obama for treason (and the reid and the pelosi and the boehner and the mccain and the graham…)
          10. Castrate the Banksters

      21. TEST

        Apropos to the other, earlier article today about banksters, part of their scam is the fake global warming gambit.

        Another article today about Greenland melting in Yahoo. Why do you see 3 4- articles every time you look at websites like Yahoo? Simple:

        a.) They think you are too stupid to remember ClimateGate, with the “hide the decline” scam, the fake hockey stick and worse, the refusal to release emails and data, etc etc. etc.
        b.) There is billion and perhaps trillions invested in the scam – not just by BIG GREEN MONEY, but also by the Goldman Sachs types of the world
        c.) If you control energy, you control everything it touches, which is, well… EVERYTHING. And you, dear reader, are too stupid to know what is good for you, so you require an Orwellian Big Brother – or, better, Hilary, to take care of you (of course, THEY will be exempted from their own rules, as always – cf. Michelle Marie Antoinette Obama and her monthly uber-luxe vacations)

        Latest one I saw today was about Greenland melting http://www.rtcc.org/2015/02/05/greenlands-hidden-meltwater-lakes-raise-sea-level-concerns/

        We are also warned about Greenland ice loss in other article such as the one found at http://www.grist.org/article/2010-05-13-weighing-greenland/, Here, scientists use GRACE (Gravity Recovery andClimate Experiment) satellites, which experiment is composed of two satellites flying in formation, in which they measure the distance between the two satellites to the nearest micron (a hundredth of the width of a hair), which in turn allows us to calculate the weight of things on the earth very accurately.

        One of the things that the GRACE satellites have allowed us to calculate is the ice loss from the Greenland Ice Cap. The article somberly informs us that Scott Luthcke “weighs Greenland — every 10 days. And the island has been losing weight, an average of 183 gigatons (or 200 cubic kilometers) — in ice — annually during the past six years. That’s one third the volume of water in Lake Erie every year. Greenland’s shrinking ice sheet offers some of the most powerful evidence of global warming.” Pretty frightening stuff, even allowing for the fact that this only covers the past six years. I’m not sure what a gigaton is, but it must be big!

        Unfortunately, Willis Eshenbach, in his article On Being the Wrong Size, http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/05/23/on-being-the-wrong-size/#more-19819, had the temerity to figure out what this really big thing called a “gigaton” is, and found out that Greenland is currently losing 0.007% of its total mass every year, possibly as low as 0.0005% … seven thousandths of one
        percent to five thousandths of one percent lost annually. Eshenbach estimates we will lose Greenland ice between 14010 and the year 21010 … on May 23rd – but that is so far out – and assuming we don’t start global cooling again – by that time Al Gore’s descendants will be on a frantic mission to stop the sun from burning out.

        Also re.Greenland ice, Danish researchers, led by Kurt Kjaer, Univ. of Copenhagen, have studied archival photos to compare current claims of rapid melting, and found the Greenland glacier is melting and reforming at a normal rate and therefore “it’s wrong to use the current melting rate to make predictions about sea level rise in the coming century, as some studies have done.”

        Other mainstream media reports frantically tell us the Greenland Ice Sheet is melting so fast it is pouring 240 billion tonnes of fresh water into the ocean each year.[Unfortunately, a study led by Kurt Kjaer, Univ. of Copenhagen, found that the Greenland glacial system is melting and then re-forming at a normal rate, and concluded ““it’s wrong to use the current melting rate to make predictions about sea level rise in the coming century, as some studies have done.” See http://www.voanews.com/articleprintview/1454091.html , http://www.nature.com/ngeo/journal/v5/n6/fig_tab/ngeo1481_F2.html

        Then there is that idiotic “2014 warmest ever” – which used thermometer data over the zillion times more accurate satellite data. Satellite data showed no such thing, and the delta with the notoriously corrupted thermometer data was statistically insignificant. So much so that uber warming shill Seth Borenstein even retracted the claim.

          Oooops, sorry about the haplography (repeated) part about Dr. Kurt Kjaer – I took this from a 400 p. paper (700 footnotes!) I did on the utter scam of global warming… pasted it in here incorrectly. Sorry.

        Islam, the religion of pieces.

        Human pieces, unfortunately.

        And no, not every Muslim is involved in this nuttiness; however, a large plurality are. Worse, while many don’t want to kill non-Muslims, they sure are not against OTHERS doing the job. Check out the polls that shows Muslim support for the 911 attack. Or go back in history – Mohammed led raids himself on caravans. While poeple whine about the Crusades, they were, IMHO, defensive wars. Muslims were NOT invited, nor did they come peacefully, into Spain, or Vienna later. One of the Khans, after converting to Islam wrote “60,000 skulls I left piled at the gates of Isfahan.” Nice.

        And I’d be happy to talk Palestine… just as soon as the Arabs give Egypt back to the Copts, Istanbul goes back to the Greeks, they give Algeria back to the Berbers, they pay reparations for the 2 MILLION black Sudanese they murdered (where are the Louis Farrakhans for THAT???), and what the heck, give Persia back to the Zoroastrians. Heck, Muslims are even murdering large numbers of Buddhists in Thailand (doesn’t make the news much).

        I’ve read the Qu’ran twice, and done two graduate school papers on Islam. It is, in a nutshell, a religion of violence, and was founded that way

        Clarification. Crusades were mostly defensive. Like all wars, things take on a life of their own, get co-opted, get out of hand, etc. There were definitely excesses. However, it was *initiated* by Islam. Similarly, I don’t justify Al “Bomber” Harris and his firebombing of civilians in Nazi Germany, though the war itself I think was justified.

      30. Bigbluedrew

        Sgt. I really like your posts, but if they suspend US Presidential elections the balloon has really gone up. While I am sure the majority of the country might tolerate such a move IMO it would lead to immediate Civil War which I feel would spread rather quickly. I for one would join it. While the power of the government is vast and more powerful than at any time in our history, the infrastructure that supports it is VERY fragile. If the rebels possessed the will to fight a total war I don’t think it would be that hard to wreck it. For example their are currently 25 privately operated nuclear reactors in the United States ( mainly on university campuses) that are virtually unprotected. I need not elaborate the potential damage that could be wrought disabling just a couple of them. The U.S. has only 4 major oil refining complexes, these incredibly vulnerable to attack. It is a testament to the incompetence of our enemies that no one has yet hit these targets. These are just a few of thousands of ways a small determined force could deal a crippling blow to a tyrannical government.
