Shut this stupid man up, once and for all!

Ahmedinejad has been at it again, denying the Holocaust. It's high time the international community shut this idiot up, once and for all time!

We will all suffer greatly because of this man. Do something about it now, before it's too late!

That's not gonna happen. We will tolerate him, Iran will get the bomb. Unless Iran does something really foolish (like get caught trying to blow up Washington with a terrorist they sponsored), it's just the way the West works. It's WW2 all over again, the lead up that is.

Ahmedinejad political acumen has been compared to that of Hitler. He is a thug that has finally gotten himself into a position of power through the "legitimate" means, the ballot box, and in a matter of a few short months has done the unbelievable.

From Robert Spengler at atimes.com, "Iran's strength in weakness," Dec 6, 2005:

"Once upon a time, an ex-soldier with no credentials but his belief in his own destiny joined a fanatic movement. Against all odds, he won an election, purged his opponents, and outfoxed the powers that surrounded his country. Western elites have not yet accepted that an Austrian corporal bested them, preferring to regard the events of 1933-1945 as an inexplicable aberration. What will they make of the blacksmith's son and Revolutionary Guard bully-boy Mahmud Ahmedinejad of Iran?

In just five months, Iran's president has seized the balance of power in Mesopotamia, foiled a global campaign to slow its nuclear weapons program, and forced Washington to entreat Iran for negotiations cap in hand. After Tehran rejected a first American offer, US ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Khalilzad repeated the request on December 1. "

Everyone knows that the Shi'ia are a regional tribe that were divided by arbitrary lines on a map. The elections in Iraq could be the first step in the reunification of this into a power under our now favorite thug, Ahmedinejad, who is now in a position to control a large amount of what the world desires: oil.

Hitler was defeated in part because he could not maintain a stable source of oil. It appears that the Muslim world's little and big thugs are now in possession of the ultimate trump card. Time will onlyu tell. We need to pray long and hard that they won't be successful.

Chilling, Eleanor, chilling!

USA allies?

(hack)

Only Israel is an ally in the Middle East. Everything else is smoke and mirrors.

I can only hope that the US has plans on the table to support Israel when they strike Iran and that these insane political appeals to murdering countries are the face-saving attempts to "involve" other nations.

I think any reasonable person knows Israel will have to attack Iran. The US has to look like they've exhausted "all" options.

At least, I hope we're that smart. Have to remember that politicians run this country, and not necessarily sensible people.

I have to say that I agree with Axis: We will tolerate him, Iran will get the bomb....It's WW2 all over again, the lead up that is.
The lessons of history are lost on the world. It's happening again!

Ahmadinejad also mentioned moving Israel to Alaska. A sublte reference to nuclear winter?

I admit it: Ahmadinejad frightens me. His rhetoric is getting more and more strident, and he's speaking with a confidence which is chilling.

PS: I put up a very lengthy post today. I was going to put it up tomorrow, but forged ahead, in part because of the weather forecast. Power lines may go down in an ice storm!

Hey,

We need to stop worrying about this nutcase. Everybody at the US State dept and the biggest building in the world is laughing their ass off.

Why, because he is doing our work for us. His manical, insane behaviour and mouth are doing him and his Persian, Islamic island of radical nuts in.

Like I said many months ago, Iran will do themselves in. Their pride, arrogance and stupidity will win them the worlds hatred, fear and demand for their destruction.

Just, watch and wait, besides we need the time. We got thousands of newbys that just enlisted. We need to get them trained up and get the manufactures off their asses and get them supplied and ready to be transported.

Plus, we can't forget our Air and Sea forces. They need time to get out of peacetime footing into wartime readiness. They are chomping at the bit cause we have let them have only small bites of the war pie.

Also, them SO forces that we been training up, at about 200 per cycle? Well them guys are almost ready. Give them a few more months.

Oh...don't want to forget about them guys working on the latest bunker busters..they got a few surprises for us.

Exciting times are coming for the Warriors.

Papa Ray,
"His manical, insane behaviour and mouth are doing him and his Persian, Islamic island of radical nuts in."
Refreshing optimism! I hope you're correct.

And I hope that the appropriate measures will be taken before he launches.

The Pentagon Breaks the Islam Taboo
By Paul Sperry
FrontPageMagazine.com | December 14, 2005

Washington's policy-makers have been careful in the war on terror to distinguish between Islam and the terrorists. The distinction has rankled conservatives who see scarce difference.

A little-noticed speech by President Bush in October gave them some hope. In a major rhetorical shift, he described the enemy as "Islamic radicals" and not just "terrorists," although he still denies that radicalism has anything to do with their religion.

Now for the first time, a key Pentagon intelligence agency involved in homeland security is delving into Islam's holy texts to answer whether Islam is being radicalized by the terrorists or is already radical. Military brass want a better understanding of what's motivating the insurgents in Iraq and the terrorists around the globe, including those inside America who may be preparing to strike domestic military bases. The enemy appears indefatigable, even more active now than before 9/11.

Are the terrorists really driven by self-serving politics and personal demons? Or are they driven by religion? And if it's religion, are they following a manual of war contained in their scripture?

Answers are hard to come by. Four years into the war on terror, U.S. intelligence officials tell me there are no baseline studies of the Muslim prophet Muhammad or his ideological or military doctrine found at either the CIA or Defense Intelligence Agency, or even the war colleges.

But that is slowly starting to change as the Pentagon develops a new strategy to deal with the threat from Islamic terrorists through its little-known intelligence agency called the Counterintelligence Field Activity or CIFA, which staffs hundreds of investigators and analysts to help coordinate Pentagon security efforts at home and abroad. CIFA also supports Northern Command in Colorado, which was established after 9/11 to help military forces react to terrorist threats in the continental United
States.

Dealing with the threat on a tactical and operational level through counterstrikes and capture has proven only marginally successful. Now military leaders want to combat it from a strategic standpoint, using informational warfare, among other things. A critical part of that strategy involves studying Islam, including the Quran and the hadiths, or traditions of Muhammad.

"Today we are confronted with a stateless threat that does not have at the strategic level targetable entities: no capitals, no economic base, no military formations or installations," states a new Pentagon briefing paper I've obtained. "Yet political Islam wages an ideological battle against the non-Islamic world at the tactical, operational and strategic level. The West's response is focused at the tactical and operation level, leaving the strategic level -- Islam -- unaddressed."

So far the conclusions of intelligence analysts assigned to the project, who include both private contractors and career military officials, contradict the commonly held notion that Islam is a peaceful religion hijacked or distorted by terrorists. They've found that the terrorists for the most part are following a war-fighting doctrine articulated through Muhammad in the Quran, elaborated on in the hadiths, codified in Islamic or sharia law, and reinforced by recent interpretations or fatwahs.

"Islam is an ideological engine of war (Jihad)," concludes the sensitive Pentagon briefing paper. And "no one is looking for its off switch."

Why? One major reason, the briefing states, is government-wide "indecision [over] whether Islam is radical or being radicalized."

So, which is it? "Strategic themes suggest Islam is radical by nature," according to the briefing, which goes on to cite the 26 chapters of the Quran dealing with violent jihad and the examples of the Muslim prophet, who it says sponsored "terror and slaughter" against unbelievers.

"Muhammad's behaviors today would be defined as radical," the defense document says, and Muslims today are commanded by their "militant" holy book to follow his example. It adds: Western leaders can no longer afford to overlook the "cult characteristics of Islam."

It also ties Muslim charity to war. Zakat, the alms-giving pillar of Islam, is described in the briefing as "an asymmetrical war-fighting funding mechanism." Which in English translates to: combat support under the guise of tithing. Of the eight obligatory categories of disbursement of Muslim charitable donations, it notes that two are for funding jihad, or holy war. Indeed, authorities have traced millions of dollars received by major jihadi terror groups like Hamas and al-Qaida back to Saudi and other foreign Isamic charities and also U.S. Muslim charities, such as the Holy Land Foundation.

According to the Quran, jihad is not something a Muslim can opt out of. It demands able-bodied believers join the fight. Those unable -- women and the elderly -- are not exempt; they must give "asylum and aid" (Surah 8:74) to those who do fight the unbelievers in the cause of Allah.

In analyzing the threat on the domestic front, the Pentagon briefing draws perhaps its most disturbing conclusions. It argues the U.S. has not suffered from scattered insurgent attacks -- as opposed to the concentrated and catastrophic attack by al-Qaida on 9-11 -- in large part because it has a relatively small Muslim population. But that could change as the Muslim minority grows and gains more influence.

The internal document explains that Islam divides offensive jihad into a "three-phase attack strategy" for gaining control of lands for Allah. The first phase is the "Meccan," or weakened, period, whereby a small Muslim minority asserts itself through largely peaceful and political measures involving Islamic NGOs -- such as the Islamic Society of North America, which investigators say has its roots in the militant Muslim Brotherhood, and Muslim pressure groups, such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations, whose leaders are on record expressing their desire to Islamize America.

In the second "preparation" phase, a "reasonably influential" Muslim minority starts to turn more militant. The briefing uses Britain and the Netherlands as examples.

And in the final jihad period, or "Medina Stage," a large minority uses its strength of numbers and power to rise up against the majority, as Muslim youth recently demonstrated in terrorizing France, the Pentagon paper notes.

It also notes that unlike Judaism and Christianity, Islam advocates expansion by force. The final command of jihad, as revealed to Muhammad in the Quran, is to conquer the world in the name of Islam. The defense briefing adds that Islam is also unique in classifying unbelievers as "standing enemies against whom it is legitimate to wage war."

Right now political leaders don't understand the true nature of the threat,\ it says, because the intelligence community has yet to educate them. They still think Muslim terrorists, even suicide bombers, are mindless "criminals" motivated by "hatred of our freedoms," rather than religious zealots motivated by their faith. And as a result, we have no real strategic plan for winning a war against jihadists.

Even many intelligence analysts and investigators working in the field with the Joint Terrorism Task Forces have a shallow understanding of Islam.

"I don't like to criticize our intelligence services, because we did win the Cold War," says a Northern Command intelligence official. "However, all of these organizations have made only limited progress adjusting to the current threat or the sharing of information."

Why? "All suffer heavily from political correctness," he explains.

PC still infects the Pentagon, four years after jihadists hit the nation's military headquarters.

"A lot of folks here have a very pedestrian understanding of Islam and the Islamic threat," a Pentagon intelligence analyst working on the project told me. "We're getting Islam 101, and we need Islam 404."

The hardest part of formulating a strategic response to the threat is defining Islam as a political and military enemy. Once that psychological barrier has been crossed, defense sources tell me, the development of countermeasures -- such as educating the public about the militant nature of Islam and exploiting "critical vulnerabilities" or rifts within the Muslim faith and community -- can begin.

"Most Americans don't realize we are in a war of survival -- a war that is going to continue for decades," the Northcom official warns.

It remains to be seen, however, whether our PC-addled political leaders would ever adopt such controversial measures.

What a wonderful comment! It's music to my ears! If what you say is correct, then there is some hope for us yet!

What can I say to such an erudite post only to say that I hope you're right. And, of course, bravo!
