Hollywood to again whitewash Clinton’s culpability for the 9/11 attacks?

I suppose it was to be expected. Another presidential election cycle, another Hollywood effort to whitewash Bill Clinton’s singular responsibility for the attacks of 11 September 2001, an effort also probably meant to aid Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential ambitions.

First, there was the two-part television miniseries called “The Path to 9/11”, which was aired by ABC in the United States on 10-11 September 2006. Apparently worried that the film’s maker might be going to tell the truth about Clinton’s direct personal responsibility for leaving Osama bin Laden alive and at large so that he could stage an operation that killed nearly 3,000 dead Americans, the media reported that the Clinton organization and its lawyers intervened with ABC to cleanse the film of any attempt to explain — our even suggest — that the ex-president was accountable for the deaths, which he is. Indeed, Clinton’s culpability is so obvious, and the evidence thereof so abundant, that the film was made even after the late-felon Sandy Berger stole some of the documentary proof thereof from the National Archives to protect Clinton’s reputation and his wife’s political viability.

Next, in 2012, came the “Zero Dark Thirty” movie. This film shined the respective apples of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, and reportedly was supported by Obama administration briefings that included classified national-security data which was compromised whether or not it was used in the movie. But then, as Hillary Clinton has so definitively proven, U.S. national security matters not at all to Democrats and their Hollywood allies if some vote-losing truth can be hidden or at least distorted long enough to win presidential elections.

Now, there is a third film project about 9/11 that is very likely to provide a second whitewash by making the American-killer Bill Clinton appear as a ready-to-act, would-be hero who was ill-served by the U.S. intelligence community, and especially the CIA.

Late in November, 2015, I received the e-mail below from Lawrence Wright, author of the purportedly non-fiction work, The Looming Tower. I should note that Wright contacted me after I resigned from the CIA because I had been CIA’s Chief of Alec Station (December 1995- June 1999), the officers of which, with their courageous CIA colleagues overseas, gave Bill Clinton at least ten opportunities to capture or kill Osama bin Laden from May, 1998, until April-May, 1999. Two of these opportunities would have been executed by CIA, the other eight by the U.S. military using CIA intelligence. (NB: For an open-source confirmation of many of these opportunities, see The 9/11 Commission Report. The media appear to have skipped these pages.)

So, here is the e-mail mentioned above:

From Lawrence Wright
From Lawrence Wright lawrencewright@XXXXX
To Mike Scheuer scheuermf@aol.com
Cc Alex Gibney pag@XXXXXcom, Daniel Futterman danielfutterman@XXXXXcom

Dear Mike,

I wanted to alert you to the fact that I have sold a series to Hulu about the run-up to 9/11, based in part on my book, “The Looming Tower.” It is a dramatic series, not a documentary. I am working with the Academy Award -winning director Alex Gibney, and writer Dan Futterman, who has two Academy Award nominations for his work.

Mike, you’ll be a character in this series, because of your role at Alec Station. Alex, Danny, and I would be grateful for the opportunity to talk with you in person in order to get a clearer understanding of your experience.

We were hoping to make a trip to the DC area the week of Dec. 14, and would like to talk to you while we’re there. Is there a date when you could meet us that week? For our purposes, the 16th or 17th of December would work best.

Many thanks for your consideration on this.

Larry
———————————————————————-

After reading the note, I decided to neither respond nor participate. I have had a good deal of experience with Mr. Wright. While he was preparing the Looming Tower, for example, I had a goodly number of telephone conversations with him — all of which I taped — during which I answered his questions and tried to explain the multiple chances the CIA had given Clinton to eliminate bin Laden. I mistakenly thought that Mr. Wright was a serious writer, not a Democratic shill, but the book he produced is so far from the truth about what happened intelligence-wise before 9/11 – at least as I experienced it, and I was pretty involved — that it is quite near a soap opera-like parody of reality, albeit spiced up with bits of sophomoric psychological analysis of the people he describes, Americans and Islamists alike. The Looming Tower, in fact, may be a perfect book on which to base the fictional and likely reality-free dramatic series Mr. Wright refers to in his note.

So, as Mr. Wright noted above, the American people soon will be treated to another piece of what is nearly certain to be pro-Clinton propaganda about the “run-up to 9/11”. No doubt it will be glitzy and entertaining, and it will damn the U.S. Intelligence Community — especially the CIA — because, as Mr. Wright said on Fox News Sunday on 1 October 2006, Clinton was “poorly served” by the U.S. intelligence agencies. [1]

Well, Americans can watch this coming film and think what they want, but there is one man who knows the truth about the run-up to 9/11. Fortunately for the nation and for its historical record — safer now  with Berger dead — this one man publicly explained that truth to a live audience on the day before 3,000 Americans died at al-Qaeda’s hands; they died, of course, only because their president repeatedly and knowingly refused to try to defend them.

“I nearly got him. And I could have killed him,” Clinton told a meeting of businessmen in Australia, “but I would have had to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and kill 300 innocent women and children, and then I would have been no better than him. And so I didn’t do it.” [2]

Clinton, for once, told the truth [3], be it only in the first ten words of the quote. While Mr. Wright may be right when he says I am Prussian-like, pious Catholic — I assume that is not a compliment, but it does have a nice ring to it — the women and men of CIA’s Operations Directorate performed magnificently from 1995 until Clinton left office, giving him at least ten opportunities to capture or kill Osama bin Laden, and — on many of those occasions — several of his senior lieutenants as well. Had Clinton acted, he almost certainly would have foreclosed chances for the 9/11 attack, and he would have made it much less possible for George W. Bush to exploit the citizenry’s post-9/11 anger and ardor for revenge to win support for the mad, Mrs. Clinton-advocated invasion of Iraq.

So go see Mr. Wright’s movie, but keep in mind that if it is anything less than a scathing and fact-based indictment of Clinton’s personal culpability for the 9/11 attack, its casualties, and most of the U.S. disasters in the Muslim world that have followed, the film will be not a drama but a fantasy that defies the truth avowed by the man who knows both the whole truth and the fact of his own guilt, namely, Bill Clinton.

Indeed, with Clinton having told the truth, what is the point of another 9/11 movie? Clinton has acknowledged that 9/11 occurred because of his self-centeredness and moral cowardice, not because of an intelligence failure. It seems that Wright and his Hollywood buddies could save themselves a lot of work by getting Clinton to send a simple Tweet saying “Scheuer has been honest and absolutely correct about the many chances CIA gave me to capture or kill bin Laden. The 9/11 dead are my responsibility, not CIA’s.”

The would-be film makers then could move on to produce a film about the more important question of why Clinton and his senior advisers — Clarke, Tenet, Berger, etc. — thought it far preferable to protect the lives of bin Laden-supporting foreigners than to even try to protect those of American citizens. They might also delve into why Hillary Clinton found it preferable to abet the murder of four U.S. officials in Benghazi rather then tell Americans that her failed and juvenile post-Arab Spring policies, and the lead role she played in the U.S. military intervention in Libya, have brought the United States an ongoing national-security disaster that is almost as great as the invasion of Iraq.

Ah, but to imagine that either the Clintons or contemporary Hollywood would ever tell the truth is, as Sam Spade might say, “the stuff that dreams are made of.”

–2.) http://abcnews.go.com/US/bill-clinton-hours-911-attacks-killed-osama-bin/story?id=24801422. One must wonder about the workings of Bill Clinton’s mind. He thought it was not morally correct to defend Americans by killing bin Laden and perhaps 300 al-Qaeda or Taleban supporters, but his moral compass allowed him to be content and happy with allowing 650,000 Iraqi children to die of disease and malnutrition from the sanctions he and his European friends imposed on Saddam, a brutal man but one whose country posed no threat to the United States. Clinton also found it morally acceptable to take part in a Balkans’ war that was a zero threat to U.S. national security and to thereby slaughter Serbs willy nilly from 20,000 feet, a people who posed no threat to the United States. Finally, what on earth could possibly possess Bill Clinton to believe that he was or is in any way a “better” or more decent man than Osama bin Laden? After all, Bin Laden sought to defend Muslims, Clinton allowed Americans to be undefended and murdered. Though they are slender, Mr. Wright ought to turn his talents for psychological analysis on Clinton.

–3.) Given Clinton’s uniquely truthful statement, logic suggests that some of the members of his administration and some of the senior U.S. intelligence officials who testified under oath before the Congress and/or the 9/11 Commission probably are guilty of perjury.

What Mr. Trump knows is a mystery to the U.S. bipartisan elite

The current clouds of hot and noxious gas being huffed and puffed about by the U.S. governing elite, media, academy, and the immigrant-worshiping Christian churches regarding Donald Trump’s suggestion that the national government temporarily ban the entry of non-U.S.-citizen Muslims into the United States can only build the American public’s confidence in Mr. Trump.

All of America’s domestic enemies are ganging up on Trump on this issue, as are almost all the other mantra-mumbling, dwarfed-by-Trump presidential candidates in both parties. Trump has the added good fortune of being angrily abused by the spineless European media and peoples, as well as other external, money-sucking enemies of America, the UN, the EU, Human Rights groups, Arab regimes, etc. In life one must, at times, make enemies, and Mr. Trump is all aces when it comes to knowing the most vital foes to make for his purposes and for those of our wounded republic.

Suffice to say, Mr. Trump knows or senses what so many Americans are thinking, feeling, and fearing about the Muslim problem and he speaks clearly and directly to and for those people. Among the things he knows about the citizenry are:

–1.) Americans are sick unto death of Muslims of every stripe and location. The foreign, non-U.S.-citizen, American-killing Muslims for obvious reasons, and the U.S. Muslim community because, since Osama bin Laden declared war on America in August, 1996, it has in large measure done precisely nothing to help America rid this country of their lethal coreligionists. They have spent their time smiling and chanting that “Islam is a religion of peace,” while simultaneously whining about not being respected by their countrymen. Muslim community leaders also work with the academy’s social-science charlatans to take heaps of taxpayer money from the brain-dead Congress to “de-radicalize” U.S.-citizen Muslims. Not surprisingly all of these useless but lucrative programs have failed, while support for the Islamic State and al-Qaeda among U.S. Muslims grows, and more of them go overseas to fight alongside the Islamists. The obvious point here is that the national government is clueless about what the Islamists are up to in North America, and an immediate, temporary ban on the entry of non-citizen Muslims makes perfect sense, unless there are those who are eager, to paraphrase G.W. Bush, to “fight them over there and over here”.

–2.) Americans are sick unto death of hearing about how careful they must be not offend the ” valuable Arab allies” of the United States, and particularly Saudi Arabia, even though Riyadh was the father and is still the driving religious and monetary patron of the Islamist movement. Americans know that these regimes — like the U.S. Muslim community — have done almost nothing to defeat or slow the growth of the Islamist movement. Indeed, entities within the Arab tyrannies — especially those in the Gulf — appear to still be funding IS, AQ, and other Islamist groups; publishing school books that inculcate hatred for America and non-Muslims generally; and have refused to use their own militaries against the Islamists in any meaningful way. Indeed, the Arab tyrannies almost certainly are following their traditional, tried-and-true policy of passing huge tranches of money and guns to the Islamists so as to keep them from attacking the tyrants’ lands and keeping them pointed toward murdering Westerners and Shias.

–3.) Americans ought to be sick unto death — and would be if fully informed — of the Committee on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Thanks to the disloyal sympathy and patronage of Obama and his administration for CAIR, the best and brightest in the U.S. military and intelligence communities babble as if they are fools or, to be redundant, academics, speaking of “violent extremists” and “radicalized youth”, rather than Islamist fighters or mujahedin. CAIR has similarly perverted discussion and debate within and among law-enforcement agencies by being permitted to block the appointment of training instructors or the use of curricula if either dares to tell the truth, which is that most of the mujahedin are by Koranic definition “good Muslims”. In degrading and even falsifying the training courses meant to provide the police officers who will risk their lives to defeat the domestic Islamists, CAIR further abets the mujahedin. The CAIR organization — just as much as AIPAC and Israel First — is the enemy of the United States and Americans, and to pretend otherwise is to deceive ourselves and assist in our own demise.

So pour it on, Mr. Trump. Teach the self-righteous anti-American bastards who oppose and hate you that the U.S. Constitution is meant to protect only Americans, not to entitle, pamper, and discriminate in favor of foreigners; that hatred and abuse from Europeans, Muslims at home and abroad, and the UN are vote-garnering badges of honor; and that the only motto that ought to be easy for all loyal Americans to espouse is “America First”.

Of guns, abortion, and the approaching tyranny

“Stand your ground, don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.”  Captain John Parker, Lexington, 19 April 1775

After several weeks dominated by the Colorado shootings and the Islamic State-tied Islamist attack in San Bernardino, the likes of which will — thanks to the past four U.S. presidents — soon be at least a semi-regular occurrence in the United States, I wanted to briefly touch on three issues that seem to me to underscore the tyrannical-bent of the U.S. governing elite, and most especially the part of it that denominates itself the “Democratic Party”.

The Islamist attack in San Bernardino: The attack itself is merely another small skirmish — and another American defeat — in a war that an increasing part of Islamic world is waging on the United States. The Islamist are waging that war in large measure because of our national government’s relentless, tyranny-protecting interventionism in the Muslim world. As noted above, these attacks will become a fairly reliable feature of American life, and while that is certainly too bad, they will continue so long as the national government neither annihilates the enemy nor wises up, stops intervening, and leaves the Middle East to the catastrophic self-destruction it so richly merits.

But the more important point I want to make here is that because of the war-mongering, unnecessary interventionism, and open borders of the past four presidents, America’s internal security situation is out of control. The state and local police forces — courageous though they are — are insufficient to cope with the quickly broadening domestic Islamist threat these presidents knowingly cultivated, nurtured, and protected. The bottom line, of course, is that the citizenry must denounce and oppose anything that Obama and his sycophants — and their advocates like the half-wit, Obama-shill David Ignatius of the Washington Post and FOX’s no-wit, noise-machine Geraldo Rivera — say or do about what they deem the dire need for more unconstitutional gun control.

Today, Americans are confronting a domestic environment in which they will have to help local and state police forces to defend themselves, their families, and their country. No help can be expected from the national government as long as Obama is in office, or if another Clinton or Bush is elected president. Indeed, each of those people — and especially Obama — is nearly as great a threat to Americans and their nation’s survival as is the Islamist movement.

Perhaps the best citizens can do is to consult U.S. history. The Founders surely left us the 2nd Amendment so individual Americans could defend themselves and hunt, but the overriding reason they wrote and adopted the amendment was to make sure American citizens had arms sufficient to the task of destroying any U.S. national government that sought to become a tyranny. A government that might, for example, start unconstitutional wars, usurp legislative branch prerogatives, neglect national defense, constrict liberties protected by the Bill of Rights, install one-man rule, alter the Constitution without formal amendment, and use governmental agencies to persecute political opponents.

As Americans with commonsense know, the foregoing tyrannical activities have become increasingly common over the past four presidential terms. For that reason, it is also worth recalling that the U.S. Navy’s Admiral Halsey famously and correctly told the forces under his command that the way to win the Pacific War was to “kill Japs, kill Japs, and kill more Japs.” Because of the national government’s consistent and long-since-proven disinterest in defending the republic, its borders, or its citizens, Americans today would be best advised to immediately “buy guns, buy guns, and buy more guns” — and especially automatic weapons.

The post-Colorado abortion debate:  Since the Colorado shooting, many journalists — that is, Democratic mouthpieces — have spent much of their time anguishing about the harsh language used by other commentators to describe abortion, abortionists, dismembering still-living infants, Planned Parenthood, and other aspects of the abortion issue. I concur with these dear, sensitive, suffering souls and so want to suggest a short list of vivid and realistic definitions for some of the words and phrases that are common to the abortion debate, ones that I think precisely capture the essence of the players in the abortion process.

–U.S. Supreme Court = The place where humans become non-humans and murder becomes constitutional. See, Dred Scott-v-Sanford (1857) and Roe-v-Wade (1973).

–Roe-v-Wade = A court decision far more brutally inhuman and genocidal than either Dred Scott-v-Sanford or Germany’s Nuremberg Laws

–Abortion doctors and nurses = Mengele-like executioners;  a regiment of the SS-Totenkopfverbände (AKA: Death’s Heads’ Units or SS-TV)*; and, by their actions, dedicated believers in the concept of untermenschen.**

–Choice = Premeditated murder

–Women who champion and/or have abortions = Constitutionally privileged murderers

–Planned Parenthood Offices = Slaughter pens

I also took time to draft a couple of up-beat slogans for Planned Parenthood, and scouted around for new logos for the organization. I thought both might help refurbish its — if viewed through Mrs. Clinton’s eyes —  saintly reputation after the broadcast of videotapes showing its employees merrily prolonging the torturous murder of human beings to harvest their organs and sell them. The following seem to fit the bill perfectly

–Slogans: “Planned Parenthood — 60 Million Murdered and Still Butchering!” or “Planned Parenthood — Eat Your Heart Out, Adolph!”

–New Logos:***

Image result for ss death head

–Tyranny: Only a government intending to wrest sovereignty from its citizens and enslave them will seek to force the citizenry’s unconstitutional disarmament and systematically negate the 1st, 2nd, and 4th amendments. Only a government intending to govern by unilateral diktat will identify a part of the population as “non-humans” and then help to pay and protect the murderers of those so-called non-humans. Only a tyrannical government, unafraid of citizen resistance, will, for decades, refuse to kill its overseas enemies in numbers sufficient to prevail, and thereby allow its citizens to be killed at home because of its refusal to wage war mercilessly, enforce border-control/immigration laws, and obey the Constitution. Only a tyrannical government will use the occasion of lethal foreign or domestic military attacks on its citizens as the occasion to launch new attacks on the liberties of the same citizens.

As enough is coming very close to being enough, it is worth recalling that Captain John Parker’s words, noted above, were spoken at Lexington as his militia unit prepared to meet the forces of America’s national government of the day. Those forces had been sent to capture leading American dissidents and to seize the arms, ammunition, and other ordnance stocks of colonial Americans.

During World War II the SS-TV also provided troops for the first combat unit of the Waffen-SS, the Totenkopf Division, which eventually evolved into one of Nazi Germany’s most formidable combat formations.

Cleaning America’s house after the Islamists’ next attack in the U.S.

The previous piece published here (18 November 2015) and a subsequent interview on Michael Smirconish’s CNN program have drawn a surprising number of irate if juvenile comments, not to this site but to CNN, the Huffington Post, and a considerable number of other apparently defeat-loving websites. Now widely tagged by these folks as a “sociopath,” I am encouraged to write a bit more as a follow-on to the piece that drove these Obama-like, arrogant adolescents into vituperative snits that demonstrated nothing so much as that they share Obama’s profound historical ignorance and a daft believe that the United States can continue to exist without acting to defend itself via all-out war or — preferably — neutrality and non-intervention.

As a starting point it is worth noting an eternal truism: When your nation is attacked and is at war, you and your nation will be killed unless the attackers are either eradicated or diverted to less difficult and more lucrative foes. Therefore, the enemy, his supporters, sympathizers, and infrastructure — all of it — are legitimate targets. Unless America is devastatingly attacked — a major attack unlike the recent skirmish in Paris — my own preference is not to fight this war overseas but stop our unnecessary and mujahedin-motivating intervention in the Muslim world, remedy the proliferation of domestic Islamists and the other domestic problems noted in the previous article, and leave the enemy abroad to continue to drift into an utterly catastrophic region-wide sectarian war.

A resolve by the United States to henceforth be a neutral and non-interventionist power would have the added benefit of bringing an end to European interventionism in the Islamic world and thereby deprive the Sunnis and Shias of the U.S.-NATO-manufactured interventionist glue that has long held together their movements. Europe has unilaterally disarmed since the demise of the USSR, brings little to any struggle save rules-of-war that ensure it loses, and has courage to fight only so long as they are confident America is in the lead, ready to pay for the endeavor, and will pull their chestnuts out of the fire if need be. And, in any event, the Europeans will soon need to get home to fight the domestic Islamist insurgencies that gradually will emerge as pay-back for decades of mad — that is, multicultural — immigration, refugee, and open-borders policies.

If the Huffington posters’ argument — Americans want more intervention but do not want to defend the republic by destroying its enemies — is representative of the citizenry’s consensus, the aftermath of the next Islamist attack in the United States ought to be considered and prepared for. On that issue, I have some suggestions.

Since 9/11, I have thought that most important result of the next significant attack in the United States would be some level of violence against Muslim or Muslim-looking Americans. The human, physical, and economic damage caused by the next attack may be great or small, but it is almost certain that it will include Islamist fighters who are U.S. citizens, residents, and/or illegal aliens, as well as non-Americans who have illegally entered the United States across the open southern border. (NB: As Islamist leaders, on average, are light years smarter than U.S. leaders, they are more than likely to recognize the internal discontent and perhaps violence they will cause in the United States by using – or even appearing to use — the open southern border as a point of entry for the attack.)

The bulk of U.S.-citizen Muslims will have nothing to do with the next attack and many may not even have sympathy for it. But other Americans will be enraged that after twenty years of war the U.S. government has utterly failed to annihilate the Islamists abroad, control U.S. borders, or — the best and most security-producing bet — stop intervening in and caring about what goes on in the Islamic world. Lashing out verbally or violently against Muslims or Muslim-looking people seems a likely and perhaps a natural response.

But such a response — while understandable — would be wrong from the legal, societal, and commonsense viewpoints. When the next attack occurs, Americans must count ten while totally ignoring the politicians’ lying claims that the Islamists have nothing to do with religion and attack because they hate freedom, voting, democracy, etc.  The focus of Americans must be on ridding themselves of those who enabled the attack. The Islamists who attack will be the actual trigger pullers, bombers, and killers. Hopefully, they will die or be executed on the domestic battlefield and save us the cost of trials and the sorry but inevitable spectacle of much of the Democratic Party coming to their defense.

But the vile villains, the real cause of the next attack in the United States, will be those prominent Americans who have willfully refused to defend the United States either by exterminating the Islamist forces or, better yet, by stopping their arrogant and bloody campaign to impose their abstract and inapplicable values and lifestyles on Muslims who do not want them and will to fight to be left free to decide their own future, even if that future is not what the seemingly racist U.S. governing elite demands of those it deems to be its little brown brothers.

So when the next attack hits, the following U.S. leaders and groups ought to be the focus of the legitimate rage of American citizens. Such a focus will inform the citizenry why the United States is in its current disastrous position vis-a-vis Islam and point toward precisely the kind of man or woman — ones whose motto is America First — that they ought to vote for to begin to brake the nation’s slide toward hell. (NB: The following folks know they are guilty of the deliberate negligence and deceit that has cost immense amounts of American blood, treasure, and social cohesion. That is why so many are supporting the neutering of the Second Amendment; they justly fear well-merited retribution from the governed. It is not a coincidence, moreover, that Europe’s leaders cracked down on gun owners immediately after the recent Paris attacks. They, too, know that they enabled the Islamist attacks. The crack-down was protect themselves not to prevent the Islamists from getting guns.)

So here are a few of the enemy-enablers to focus on after the Islamists’ next attack in America:

–President George H.W. Bush and his foreign-policy advisers for starting a quarter century of losing wars for the United States with their madly Wilsonian, enemy-making, war-causing, Neocon-empowering, and bankrupting doctrine of a “New World Order”.

–President Bill Clinton for not using the multiple chances he had to kill Osama bin Laden in 1997-1999, thereby knowingly sheltering and nurturing bin Laden and the Islamist movement until they matured into a lethal national security threat to the United States.

–George W. Bush and his Israel-First advisers for invading Iraq; sending U.S. Marines and soldiers to Iraq and Afghanistan to fight and die in wars he never intended to win; and opening an easy westward road from Afghanistan for the Islamists, a road that now has reached the Atlantic Ocean.

–Barack Obama for being a close and reliable ally for both al-Qaeda and the Islamic State, and refusing — like Bush, Clinton, and Bush — to explain to Americans that unrelenting U.S. government intervention overseas means unending war with Islam. If he was an Islamist, Obama could not have been more help to the Islamists and their increasingly effective campaign to mobilize young Muslim men to fight the West.

–The Neoconservatives, Israel-Firsters, and their media abettors for corrupting the U.S. political process with money and media-power and making America a war-mongering nation and the eternal protector of Israel, which is utterly irrelevant to U.S. national interests. Listing the names of those suborned by the lucre of the Neocons and Israel-First would take hours, but it at least should be noted that all the presidential candidates save Trump, Fiorina, and Paul are on-board with these disloyal citizens, and that Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton have signed up to be the bought-and-paid-for personal presidential candidates of Jewish-American billionaires who are pro-Israel zealots desperate to keep the United States mired, spending, bleeding, and, indeed, dying on Israel’s behalf in the Middle East. Rubio, in fact, may have enslaved himself, and potentially all Americans, to two such people.

–The U.S. Department of Education, the members of the nation’s teachers’ unions, and most universities’ social science faculties for training young people to be ignorant of, or hateful toward America’s history; to be unable to recognize that there are absolutes when it comes to right and wrong; to believe that the 1st and 2nd Amendments and much of the rest of the Constitution are expendable and that the resulting minority rule-based tyranny will be a better form of government; and to disregard the melancholy fact that if your nation unnecessarily intervenes in the affairs of other states, it invariably generates war, and, in wartime, a nation dies if it does not employ every tool at hand to destroy its enemies. The Department of Education and America’s teachers at all levels produce young people who are not citizens, but permanently immature automatons who have been and will be preyed upon by demagogic, race-baiting, palsied-by-theory Democratic politicians. On this issue the choice is simple, eliminate the Department and the teachers’ unions or return the voting age to at least twenty-one years.

–The craven leaders of the U.S. Muslim community for refusing, when testifying before Congress, to tell the truth, which is that Muslim-American youngsters are not “brain-washed” by evil unIslamic men into becoming mujahedin, but are motivated by their understanding of their faith’s requirement that they join fellow Muslims on the battlefield to defend Islam against the U.S.-European military interventions that kill Muslims, wreck Muslim societies, protect Arab tyrants; seek to impose secularism; and allow Israel to do as it pleases.

So that’s a bit of a scorecard that provides grist for assessing who is to blame for the next Islamist attack in the United States. It could be much longer and more detailed, but it is enough to provide focus while Americans wait for and then watch the next attack and its aftermath. The much-needed, two-step, post-attack recipe for American citizens is (a) to cheer for those who kill every attacker who does not blow him/herself up in the attack or tries to surrender, in other words, raising what the great Virginian, Thomas Jackson called the “black flag” of war, and (b) to then launch a campaign to rid the republic of the influence of those who follow and perpetuate the ideas and plans of the Islamists’ above-listed U.S.-citizen enablers, doing so completely and also wholly peacefully, if at all possible.

On cutting the crap, breaking the Caliphate’s back, and focusing on America

Honoring Paris’s dead and wounded is now being done with crocodile tears, candles, moments of silence, crowds of strangers holding hands, pledges of solidarity, the endless, pro forma  singing of national anthems, and bouquets of followers mounded up as colorful, if wilting, temples to the dead.

None of this nonsense honors anyone, it is simply another meaningless iteration of the made-for-TV, post-Islamist-attack “Festival of the Dead”, an event to which Westerners seem to be intensely attached and are now institutionalizing. After all, it’s a chance to get outdoors, walk a bit, and mingle with other self-professed and mourning lovers of humanity. It is, in fact, all hogwash. It allows Western people to feel they have done something to contribute to victory over the enemy when in fact they have done less to honor the dead and destroy their killers than their national governments — and that truly is quite an underachievement.

But there is a time-honored and effective way to honor the Paris dead, as well as the U.S. and Western soldiers whose lives and limbs have been wasted since 2001 by national leaders who did not intend to win. If the United States and the West really do not want to do the smartest thing and encourage a Sunni-Shia sectarian war, then it has the near-term option of destroying all those facilities in Syria and Iraq that are essential to the Islamic State’s effort to build a state or, in their words, rebuild the Caliphate.

Currently, IS is in possession of:

–Highways and bridges
–Portions of a railway system
–Fleets of tanker trucks, construction vehicles and machinery, and farming equipment
–Cell phone tower networks and overhead power lines
–Improved waterways and irrigation canals/systems
–Potable water and urban sanitation systems
–Hydroelectric dams and reservoirs
–Airfields
–Grain silos
–Mills for processing wheat and other grains
–Facilities for mining minerals
–Oil fields, wells, and refineries
–Gas fields, wells, and distribution systems
–Pipelines for fuel, gas, and water
–Factories, government buildings, warehouses, and military bases
–Farmland that is growing crops
–Hospitals
–Universities
–Police stations, military barracks, office buildings, and hotels that are used to store arms and house fighters

Each of these things, needless to say, is part of the IS military effort. They are even more important, however, to its effort to build a state, fund an economy, attract foreign volunteers, and feed, employ, and care for a population. They all are also wonderfully visible, cannot be readily moved or hidden, and are just the kind of targets that Western air forces can annihilate in an air campaign of relatively short duration. For the first time since 1996, the Islamists have acquired a large and valuable set of physical assets that they cannot afford to lose, and they are assets that are perfectly suited to the West’s conventional military forces and so will give Western militaries a respite from the folly of trying to defeat IS by killing their fighters one or two at a time.

Destroy the items listed above and you send IS back to being just very good Islamist insurgents; still dangerous, but no longer advancing the reconstruction of the Caliphate.* Moreover, the loss of these productive assets via air attacks, and the high numbers of civilians that surely will die therein, will create an unhappy and restive population prone to rebellion in the regions IS controls.

In such a situation, IS leaders will face enemies in each direction they turn, and will have lost the means of appealing to the young Muslims — and many older ones — with the powerfully alluring idea and nascent reality of rebuilding the Caliphate.

For the West, the pulverized, smoldering ruins of these state-building assets, which IS has preserved because they cannot be replaced, and the moldering corpses of thousands who have cast their lot with IS or are simply present, will amount to its first strategic success against the Islamists since this religious war began in 1996.

For the United States to undertake this campaign as a unilateral mission — let Russian and French warplanes waste ordnance breaking concrete at Raqqah, and the rest of the EU cowers behind cheap bellicosity — would be a chance to, for now, break the back of IS’s caliphate-restoring effort. More important, the mission’s success would allow the United States to truthfully claim it had done its part militarily and return home to a permanent policy of non-intervention, taking none of the resulting refugees, ignoring screeches from the human-rights mafia, the EU, the UN, and the new-age Pope, and spending not a penny to rebuild anything in Iraq or Syria.

By attacking and then walking away, the United States would have lessened the IS threat for all and leave it up to Putin, Hollande, Cameron and any other Western leader to decide if he or she wants to stay engaged in the fight against IS instead of getting out, cleaning up the Islamists in their own nations, and letting the Shia-Sunni sectarian war flourish while watching the two sides devour each other.

So following, for the United States, is a doable, unilateral, and non-time consuming plan with which to execute the just mentioned campaign, permanently extract the United States from the Muslim world, and let that world go to the hell it has been preparing for itself for a millennium. Let me admit that I have no military experience, but, hey, look where the West Pointers have us after nearly twenty years of failed war fighting and abject loses in Iraq and Afghanistan.

–1.) The U.S. president orders the U.S. military to prepare an air campaign against the targets listed above. If the U.S. military is worth the money taxpayers have invested – at this point, an open question — all the targets on the list will already have been located and prioritized. A little time will be needed to move additional aircraft into range, say, three or four weeks.**

–2.) When the U.S. military tells the president it is ready to attack, the president directs the secretary of state to officially recognize the Islamic State regime as a legitimate nation state and warmly welcome it into the vicious jungle that has been created by that useless, effete, and war-causing entity called the “International Community.”

–3.) On the next day, the president calls a joint session of Congress to meet within 48 hours.

–4.) When the session convenes, the president asks for a declaration of war against the Islamic State and is given that constitutionally required declaration.

–5.) The president then orders the military to attack, and remains silent until the military reports its mission is accomplished.

–6.) With that victory in hand, the president addresses the nation, announces victory and the end of America’s war in Syria/Iraq. He then describes what the campaign accomplished, what the campaign cost in lives and money, and why Americans would no longer see their government militarily intervening anywhere in the world unless the United States is attacked or an imminent threat needs destroying. He should end the speech by saying to Americans, “Good night, God bless you, and God Bless America First”.

All told, such a U.S. air campaign ought to succeed as it plays to the U.S. military’s skills and will keep U.S. casualties low. If successful, it allows the United States to bid farewell to the Middle East – leaving it to whoever is stupid enough to want to be involved — and begin to focus on genuine U.S. national interests, like reducing the debt, controlling the borders, rebuilding the conventional military, severely limiting immigration, withdrawing from NATO, evicting illegal aliens, eliminating domestic Islamist organizations, and generally minding our own business.

 

 

Notes:

*IS and al-Qaeda will still have forces elsewhere in the world and so will be troublesome. But the lesson taught by the above U.S. air campaign — which is, and ought to be, Americans are overwhelmingly powerful, indiscriminate killers, and a little bit crazy — will not be lost on the Islamists. They will keep contending for Yemen, which the Saudis have made a mess off and should be left to fix; Libya, which is a poisonous gift to Europe from the UK and France — Clinton and Obama simply playing adolescent morons whose democracy mongering gave cover to the Europeans — ought to be left to them to resolve; Egypt, where the Russians seem eager to take on a losing situation; and Afghanistan, where both the Russians and Chinese have no choice but to fight to keep the Islamists out of Central Asia. Regarding Europe, the Islamists have the upper hand there and may win, but only because the Europeans seem to have no pride in their national identities, no respect for, or passion to preserve what their civilization has accomplished over more than two millennia, and no real will to kill the bad guys and save themselves. In non-Maghreb Africa, Americans must attain energy self-sufficiency and thank God for the eternal presence of the Atlantic Ocean.

**The only American opponents of such action would be U.S. oil companies who lust for oil and gas from the fields IS holds in Syria and Iraq; U.S. arms makers who sell weapons in the region; Neoconservatives and Israel-Firsters who want endless U.S. engagement in the region so American blood can be shed to protect Israel; and the media, the so-called Peace Movement, and the college campuses, all of which are wholly owned subsidiaries of the Democratic Party. Opponents like these are all the more reason to undertake the campaign, win, and then come home to democratically or otherwise defeat the vermin.
