A Ruthless Solution

A Ruthless Solution

Courtesy of the Didact reposting, it's a message that has not lost its timeliness. namely, what one LTC Kratman has to say about pitiless war. Here is what a decorated veteran of Operations Just Cause, Desert Storm, and Iraqi Freedom, LTC Tom Kratman (US Army - Ret) had to say in response to a rather pompous declaration by a quite gormless doofus who just happened to be Le President de France back in 2015 in the wake of the Bataclan Islamist attacks:... Let me tell you what a pitiless war would look like. Firstly, your armed forces would be culled…

"Oops"

You may have heard there's a video going 'round, courtesy of MEMRI, where a bunch of kids are dancing while singing about the wonders of lopping off infidel heads. Per the local paper: Youngsters at the Muslim American Society Islamic Center in North Philadelphia are shown in video footage speaking in Arabic during a celebration of “Ummah Day,” said the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), a Middle East monitoring organization. One girl says "we will chop off their heads” to “liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque” in Jerusalem, according to the MEMRI.The local paper notes, of course:…

Christmas in France

Christmas in France

The iconic image of the terrorist attack in 2016 in Nice, France is the one above of the little girl's dead body, her doll next to her, covered. And yes, it is a terrorist attack. Perhaps those in charge realize that naming these things "truck attacks", or pretending there's not a cultural commonality to a disporportionate number of them, as the tenor of the reporting has changed with the latest incident: Police searched through eastern France on Wednesday for a man suspected of killing at least two people in a gun attack on a Christmas market in Strasbourg and who…

It's Just a Rogue [Whatever]

It's Just a Rogue [Whatever]

One of the aspects of 4th gen and distributed warfare is how easy it is to dismiss individual attacks as just “rogue actors”. It’s not like the Tzarnev brothers, or your random joe jihad driving a truck of peace, or using a knife of peace, or (even in Europe, though less often) a gun of peace to enthusiastically greet the nearest snackbar with an “aloha!” are part of a military organization with a strict hierarchy, regular drills, and uniforms. It lies in part in the “unseen” – or what Eric Raymond (at least I first heard it at Armed and…

"No Evidence..." and Other Bullshit

"No Evidence..." and Other Bullshit

First – I was wrong. I wrote that I “have yet to hear insistence that Islam had nothing to do with it.” – and I hadn’t – but only because I didn’t dig further into the official statements by Cuomo, de Blasio, etc. We’re getting responses like: Bomb experts will analyze the device and how it was made, according to CNN senior law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes. “It could be somebody that has grievance against the US military, possibly the Marine Corps specifically, and have nothing to do with an overseas-inspired attack like ISIS. So it still could be terrorism…

ISIS, Again. #Coincidentally

ISIS, Again. #Coincidentally

A man goes around the St Cloud Mall in Minnesota with a knife attacking people. Amazingly, it *is *reported he was shouting *Allahu Akbar, *that he asked his victims whether or not they were muslims, and ISIS claimed credit. Just as amazingly I have yet to hear insistence that Islam had nothing to do with it. A wonderful example of reporting the facts while still carefully avoiding any of the obvious conclusions. After all, if we state that his political ideology / religious death cult was a motive, we’d have to start looking deeper at the *pattern*.  The bomb in…

9/11

9/11

We already are forgetting. Some of it, I know for a fact, are the rabbits, the R-selected liberals, who want to turn away and forget that there are wolves, that death waits. Who find remembering what happened “too morbid” or “too sad” or “you’re just stirring up anger against muslims” as if that’s a trump card. I don’t remember because I want to feel pain. I remember because I must – so the people who died that day are not forgotten. So that we don’t forget the systemic malfeasance that led up to that day, the shoddy…
