Pope Benedict XVI this week quoted from a book recounting a conversation between 14th century Byzantine Christian Emperor Manuel Paleologos II and a Persian scholar on the truths of Christianity and Islam.
"The emperor comes to speak about the issue of jihad, holy war," the pope said. "He said, I quote, 'Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.'"According to Salih Kapusuz, a deputy leader of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's party, the Pope “…is going down in history in the same category as leaders such as (Adolf) Hitler and (Benito) Mussolini." Muslims are outraged and their leaders are demanding an apology.
George Bush and Tony Blair have attempted many times since 9/11 to warn of the Islamist peril and to prepare their nations for the long commitment towards defeating a 7th century ideology. For their efforts, Fallaci, Bush, Blair, and the Pope have suffered the blows and arrows of mockery and scorn. Sadly, their enemies have been not only the Islamist jihadis around the world but also their own people.
The decadent west only wants to hear that which tickles its' ears and will probably ignore Pat Buchanan’s latest warning:
“Every American must hope that Bush's goals, an Afghanistan and an Iraq that are democratic, pro-American and enlisted in the cause of fighting terror, are attained. But we have reached a point where rhetoric must be set aside and realities faced: We face a real prospect of defeat in both wars.”Buchanan warns us that a premature US withdrawal form Iraq potentially could result in:
“The breakup of Iraq, a Shia-Sunni bloodbath spreading across the Middle East, the massacre of the men and women who cast their lot with America, a Turkish invasion of Kurdistan, an Islamic perception the United States had been routed and a Shia-dominated Iraq under the influence of Iran. This would be a strategic disaster that would demoralize our few remaining friends in the region and embolden our enemies. It would be a victory for bin Laden, al-Qaida and Islamists greater than the expulsion of the Soviet Union from Afghanistan.”He writes that come November, with regard to Iraq and Afghanistan, we must decide among three options:
“Put in more U.S. troops and go all-out for the victory of which President Bush speaks. Stay the course, which holds no promise of victory or of any early end to either war. Begin the withdrawal of U.S. forces, and accept the consequences, which could well be what the president warns -- calamitous.”In fairness, this is not the kind of news that anyone, other than the terrorists, wants to hear. Nor do we want to hear Buchanan’s foreshadowing words,
“The decision is up to Bush and the new Congress, but also to us. No matter which decision we make, Americans are headed for a long, dark night of recriminations not unlike the Truman-McCarthy era.”We are in for a long dark night of nightmares and surreal days when our only choices will be between the bad and the horrid. And yet, we mock and scorn our secular, political and religious leaders who try to guide us through the maelstrom.
To what end?
And in those days, there was no King and every man did what was right in his own eyes.
The President looked and sounded resolute. McCain and Warner should be feel'n some heat from their base.Let's hope so.
The subtext, actually it's practically the nexis of this entire problem is having the USA work within organizations and conventions that are manifestly unable to cope with a post Cold War environment.
For the US citizen to believe that he or she must subordinate our Constitution to transient and lesser documents is an abomination.
The Geneva Conventions date to 1859 with periodic protocols added, but influenced by nations with no history of democracy close to the United States or no history of democracy period.(ask any current resident of Abu G. who he'd like in charge) That Convention is not followed by most of the warring nations of this world and to hold us up to it is an insult to our entire history of moving mankind forward, with greater freedoms that ever in history.
Similarly the United Nations is clearly venal and corrupt. It's usefulness is now simply to have the United States pay the freight to be insulted.
This nations performed quite well dealing unilaterally with one nation at a time and should do so again, abandoning an organization as diaphanously meretricious as the UN.
We do ourselves and the world no favors by supporting these two relics. Leadership requires us to do this or forfeit our own rights.
Can anyone show where the Geneva Convention affords any rights at all to a terrorist?ReplyDelete
In the matter of the Geneva Convention and attached protocols it clearly states that ALL SIGNATORY STATES...STATES...STATES.ReplyDelete
When I point to this flaccid convention as being superceded by history the above is partitally what I refer to. Terrorist organizations are not STATES, unless lunacy and anarchy are parsed into STATES by lawyers.
Yet the United States is being villified for adhering to not only the letter but the spirit of the convention, while proxy terrorists are being included in the definition of STATES.
We are fully within our rights to treat an enemy with no country, no treaties, no obligations to free nations ANY WAY WE CHOOSE.
Our continued mistake short of dissolving our membership is to fulfill the Bush Doctrine and attack Iran and Syria, both states who harbor terrorists. If it is not possible to do so with conventional arms then we have no choice other than to go nuclear to enforce our rights and freedoms, for Iran and Syria are STATES and are therefore accountable.
McCain and Company are worried that the Geneva Convention will be rewritten?ReplyDelete
Damn, I was hoping after the latest abortion of a Supreme Court Ruling that wiser heads would realise that the Geneva Conventions must be rewritten.
I didn't hear all of the press conference, but will make an assumption that our urbane urban blue metropolis press corps didn't ask Bush about Fallaci's passing, only about the great Ann Richards'. Parochial yokels, those media elites.ReplyDelete
Oriana had courage, but our western effete have little will to war, no will to win, and only will to winnow the willing.
They also make a damn good show of grieving.
But good point, will they give Fallaci's passing a second thought?
Put me down with that first post.ReplyDelete

Rush: (same question posed many times by many poster here, ie, why is Israel subject to timelines and artificially imposed "Peace" Agreements, when that is not the case for any other nation?
SECRETARY OF STATE RICE:
" Well, I would think of it a little differently, Rush.
What you have there is a Lebanese government that wants to fight terror and is the beginning of a democratic government that could be actually a partner for Israel in fighting terror, and so the ceasefire was really with the Lebanese government, and now we're trying to help the Lebanese government deal with the effects of a Hezbollah that launched that attack without Lebanon even knowing.
I think of it the following way..."

Richard Miniter on hosting our terrorists at Gitmo:
"The politically correct regulations are unbelievable. Detainees are entitled to a full eight hours sleep and can't be woken up for interrogations. They enjoy three meals and five prayers per day, without interruption. They are entitled to a minimum of two hours of outdoor recreation per day.
Interrogations are limited to four hours, usually running two - and (of course) are interrupted for prayers. One interrogator actually bakes cookies for detainees, while another serves them Subway or McDonald's sandwiches. Both are available on base. (Filet o' Fish is an al Qaeda favorite.)
Interrogations are not video or audio taped, perhaps to preserve detainee privacy.
Call it excessive compassion by a nation devoted to therapy, but it's dangerous. Adm. Harris admitted to me that a multi-cell al Qaeda network has developed in the camp...
Detainees use the envelopes sent to them by their attorneys to pass messages. (Some 1,000 lawyers represent 440 prisoners, all on a pro bono basis, with more than 18,500 letters in and out of Gitmo in the past year.) Guards are not allowed to look inside these envelopes because of "attorney-client privilege" - even if they know the document inside is an Arabic-language note written by a prisoner to another prisoner and not a letter to or from a lawyer...
What if a detainee confesses a weakness (like fear of the dark) to a doctor that might be useful to interrogators, I asked the doctor in charge, would he share that information with them? "My job is not to make interrogations more efficient," he said firmly. He cited doctor-patient privacy. (He also asked that his name not be printed, citing the potential for al Qaeda retaliation.)
Food is strictly halal and averages 4,200 calories per day... Most prisoners have gained weight.
Much has been written about the elaborate and unprecedented appeal process. Detainees have their cases reviewed once a year and get rights roughly equivalent to criminals held in domestic prisons. I asked a military legal adviser: In what previous war were captured enemy combatants eligible for review before the war ended? None, he said."
DR...good article over at Westhawk..you've got me going over there almost daily to see what's what..one paragraph caught my eye that seems so true..ReplyDelete
"Whether planned by the generals or not, the U.S. command may have hedged its bets in Iraq. We have expressed our doubts about whether the U.S. will be able to remake Iraq into a functioning republic before the patience of the American people is exhausted. It seems too great a leap for Iraqi politics to make"
I'd say we've asked them to jump across the Grand Canyon in one leap.
I heard on BBC an attorney who represents Gitmo detainess claim that conditions are worse than ever. Inmates are routinely beaten for infractions as minor as placing meal trays at a wrong angle.
Blatant lies and propaganda and from an attorney representing detainees.
The crux of the argument re: military tribunals is whether the defendant and/or his attorney will be allowed access to secret information used to prosecute. Would anyone in his right mind wish to reveal our methods or sources to people like this Kunstler clone? Apparently most Democrats and at least four Republicans have no problem with doing just that.
Our society and government based on law and common sense are being dragged down by a hyper-legalism-to-everyday-rationality ratio. Terrorists are taught the art of false accusation because they know media and dandy pols can't resist their cries of victimhood. The terrorist lawyers are our own, and boy do they know how to beat the system, trying for classified info on their clients' behalf and at the expense of the country's behind. We taught them but good.
Forget law schools and even the public school system as currently constituted; we need Americans to be less edumacated so as to see the very noses on their own faces.
He was just a common Soldier,ReplyDelete
And his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should remind us
We may need his like again.
For when countries are in conflict,
Then we find the Soldier's part
Is to clean up all the troubles
That the politicians start.
If we cannot do him honor
While he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage
At the ending of his days.
Perhaps just a simple headline
in a paper that would say:
"OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING,
FOR A SOLDIER DIED TODAY."

It's a pretty sad day when the President has to go begging for legal protection for those already operating under the law.ReplyDelete
The WaPo editorial board babbles on about torture and abusive interrogation, both fictions of its own making.
Why not cut to the chase and get out of the damn war business altogether? Not worth the f-in headache.
Bush was clear that "without legal protections, the program won't go forward." He said it several times today.ReplyDelete
Why some politicians want to keep things vague is beyond me.
I agree, we may as well give up now.
Boy, we're going to pay the price for all this silliness some day; I hope they hang that fucking McCain when it happens.ReplyDelete
I appreciate the tribute Ms. Fallaci. Thank you.
Ms. Fallaci could name the enemy of the West, as can the Pope. Can the same be said for either of the administrations of the US or UK. I think not. And that is why we are now in the swamp.
Silliness is such a feckless word. "Craziness?" "Idiocy?"ReplyDelete
Whatever, the PRICE IS GOING TO BE "HIGH!" Damned High.
BTW, OT & Mea culpa Ariana,ReplyDelete
Another ROE issue. I closely paraphrase. Joe Biden just said to Wolf on CNN that he's worked with these professionals for 30 years (10 on the IntelCom), and he says we don't need to pass the legislation that Bush requests, because these guys always act professionally, and if a situation exists (read emergency), where extraordinary measures may be required, then he knows these professionals will just do what they need to, and throw themselves under the train.
He just said that.
I wonder what that known-unknown level of "threat" has on the quality and quantity of the information collection efforts.
That's Exactly What McCain says:
He won't put it in his bill, but he expects the canon fodder to do the right thing, come what may.
Rather Blatant Display of Just What Kind of Worthless B...... they are.
Mea,mea culpa Oriana.ReplyDelete

It's either read how Islam has died and just does not know it, or that we should not torture a turd to save a city.
Knowing full well that torture is then defined down to being comparable to a stay in Sheriff Joe's "Tent City".
You're right--turning ourselves inside over a question that a mature nation under these circumstances would not even be discussing aloud, is in itself a huge victory for the dark side. Regardless of the official outcome, we are demonstrating wanna-be-suicidal idiocy. Demonstrating it, reveling in it, smearing it all over our face and grinning like an idiot child with an melting ice cream cone.ReplyDelete

“[T]housands of foreign fighters detained by Pakistan after fleeing the battleground in Afghanistan have been quietly released and allowed to return to their home countries.”

Films taken of the incident seemed to show that Walker's F-104N had gotten too close to the XB-70A's wing during the formation and the vortex generated by the wingtip had pulled the smaller aircraft upward and into the wing of the larger one, shearing off the starboard rudder of the XB-70A in the process.
The aircraft was to achieve the required Mach 3 cruising speed by using "compression lift"--a technique in which an aircraft could use its own supersonic shock wave for lift and hence reduce the aerodynamic drag and increase the range. In order to incorporate compression lift, the outer wing panels folded downward as a unit to trap the shock wave, generating high-pressure air directly underneath the wing surface. The maximum downward anhedral angle achieved by the panels was 65 degrees. There were a series of elevons on the trailing edge of the delta wing. The outboard elevons extended into the outer wing panel, and were disengaged when the outer panels were folded downward

While working in the yard the other day, I had the feeling I was being watched by generals. When I looked more closely, however, I found that squirrels were closely observing me. Rather than being relieved, I became concerned about the tiny, shiny silver stars on their little shoulders. What does this mean?
Later in the day, I composed a list of 100 generals I have or do respect. Will you find me wanting when I tell you that none of them were on your list? Please, don't be judgmental, like my Scotch, I like my generals straight.

Give as good as ye get is all we ask. Feel free to drink yourself under the bar, but watch Rufus, I've heard rumors.

I like my generals straight.
Why has Allen Composted 100 Squirrels?ReplyDelete

re: straight generals
OK, I take your point. How about, "Like my Scotch, I like my generals to grate?"
Allen's composting a hundred squirrels with stars on their shoulders, and he's sayinReplyDelete

I most certainly did not compost; I composed and saluted smartly, just like Trish!ReplyDelete
She probably thinks former Major General Fiscus is a regular Curtis Lemay.
Facts are troublesome things, especially for fools.
You don't have to do that. We know how much respect you had for her. You start that PC shit, and where does it stop?ReplyDelete
