Take a look at this article to get an idea as to how sublimely ignorant and naive are those among us who often claim to be the most discerning. Christians are supposed to be light to the world, helping the lost see in the darkness. They are to speak the truth. Ergo, they are obligated to search for truth and to speak and act against that which is false. Since Islam is so demonstrably false, there is no excuse whatsoever for any Christian to take part in any Muslim celebration or rite.
Let's see if the precious, sensitive Christian souls who decided a Ramadan fast was just the thing to do also want to participate, condone and thereby enable the lovely Muslim religious rite called Ashoura. The observance of Ashoura is one of the most senseless, bloody events in Islam. Ashoura marks the anniversary of the death of Husayn, grandson of the so-called prophet...
in what is now Kerbala, Iraq. The death of Husayn was the beginning of the Sunni/Shia split, which persists in Islam to this day. And you thought evangelical denominational splits were ugly.
This loving father cut his son's head and smeared blood all over his face, to honor the dead kin of his supposed prophet (pus be upon him). Is there anything to feel warm and fuzzy about in this custom, or this "religion"?
In the past, Shia men have demonstrated their galacticly stupid devotion to Husayn by letting their blood flow freely from self-inflicted wounds. Can you possibly imagine Christians beating and bleeding themselves to prove their loyalty to Calvin or Arminius? Not likely, eh? Today, many governments have tried to ban the barbaric, crazed rite of Ashoura, with varying degrees of success. In Lebanon, the practice is permitted, and a bloody commemoration of Ashoura takes place in Nabatieh every year.
Most participants make a small cut on their head, and then beat the wound with their palm--or in this case a sword--to keep the wound open and bleeding.
Participants then march in groups around the town, yelling chants to express their devotion to Husayn and the so-called prophet
Think that stuff only happens in the Middle East? Think again.
Any person, Christian or otherwise, who celebrates Ramadan with Muslims is a fool.
In this video we can see what the attitude of even so-called Westernized Muslims is toward our laws and our Constitution. Even a distinguished-looking gentleman like the one in the video has barbaric, savage beliefs about human life. What do you think a hard-core terrorist will look like? Will the color and content of his or her heart be any different than that of this smug cretin?
They will never reciprocate, never allow a sliver of Judaism or Christianity to "pollute" the "purity" of their so-called religion. Never. There is no reason at all, in the bloody centuries of Islamic history ~ or the slippery, slimy, deceptive, passive-aggressive current-day context ~ to believe they will do so. Read it for yourself: it's Islam all over the world forever... or you die.
I'd like to recommend that you read this book, The Suicide of Reason. In it is described a tribe of people who fall so in love with their own rules that they can't see how another tribe with no rules at all doesn't want to have rules at all. So the tribe with all the rules believes that the tribe with no rules will surely see that following rules is best, and so it's just a matter of time until the unruly tribe gives themselves over, heart and soul, to the tribe with the rules ~ one of which is to treat everybody nice ~ just because those who have rules believe that's how things are supposed to go... by rule.
And so the nice tribe goes around being nice to a tribe which has no rules ~ except to slaughter everyone in the tribe with rules ~ hoping that the savages will one day be nice and follow their rational rules.
Ain't gonna happen. Read the book.
Too many people are too nice.
Some time back I was driving down a major street in my town when, in the middle of the block, about equa-distant from the intersections before and behind me, the white Dodge in front of me suddenly comes to a dead stop. No sirens wailing in the distance, heading our way. No stop light or sign within a hundred freakin' yards. I jammed on my brakes as did the other drivers in the flow of traffic behind the now-stopped Dodge. Why? Looking to my left I see some shuffling schmuck in the CD lane and he doesn't appear to be willing to stop ~ he just decided he was going to stroll across the street in the middle of the block and to hell with any traffic that had the nerve to get in his way.
So the pussy Dodge driver made pussies of us all, almost causing a couple rear-enders, as he let the jay-walker break the law. Stopping the smooth and legal flow of street traffic so some FUBU punk can cross in the middle of the block isn't being tolerant and nice. It's enabling and encouraging a lazy, inconsiderate smart-ass who doesn't care about rules, no matter why they're in place. I'm not suggesting anyone should have hit the guy in the street, but he certainly could have been stopped in the CD lane by all the cars whizzing legally by him.
Here is an article about how the Obama Rules Of Engagement are inhibiting the ability of our soldiers to kill the enemy and thereby win the just war in which we are now engaged in Afghanistan.
Here's a video telling us more about how the new ROE are endangering our brave warriors, making this war un-winnable. Notice how at the end, the news-reader counsels us that it's best this way so we don't piss off the locals. Oops; dead link. Vlad tells me the video's not at YouTube anymore. I'll repost it if I can find it.
Below I've posted a picture of me and my guys. Tact Squad, 2d MP Company, 2d Infantry Division, Camp Casey, ROK ~ in the summer of '80. There were three or four other MP's in other parts of the village of TDC when that picture was taken but on just about any normal night, that's all there was between the innocents and those who might hurt them. Nobody in the picture is heavily muscled, although Jerry, not shown, had some huge guns. We were all just regular guys. We wore baseball caps while other MPs in the AO wore riot helmets as they stood at gates, checking passes. Each of us on Tact Squad carried a 1911-model .45 cal pistol, 20 rounds of hardball in three mags, a wooden baton, one set of cuffs and a radio. And maybe a Mag- or B-light. Some of you know what those are. Me? Because I was the patrol supervisor, I carried two sets of cuffs, three flex-cuffs tucked inside my gun-belt, a three-cell B-light and a fiberglass stick, not a GI wooden stick. So, which one am I in the picture?
What you don't see is OC spray or tazers. You don't see suspenders or cool chest pouches. Why? Because we did a whole hell of a lot of fighting and the more straps we had hanging off us, the more handles for bad-guys to grab onto and suh-wing us around.
Guard-mount was at 1900 each night and we started shutting down all the clubs about 2330 so everyone could get back on Camp Casey by curfew at 2400. The strip we patrolled had about 100 bars and clubs of various sizes, an unknown number of small whore-houses, about 1200 Koreans doing various things to earn money, and a similar number of GI's in different stages of intoxication strolling and stumbling around, more than willing to give it to them.
I love the Infantry guys. I learned to respect them deeply. And they just loved to fight MPs. Some of them had an axe to grind, some just liked to rumble. Some of them were misbehavin' and needed to have their asses kicked. And if they needed it kicked, we kicked it for 'em. If they were acting up in public, then that's where we kicked their asses ~ right there in front of God and everybody so everybody could see, This is what happens when you violate Army regulations and then try to fuck with us when we arrest you. You go to jail, and maybe the hospital too.
You want to know why violent crime against cops doesn't go down as police use of "technology" goes up? Because when some bad-ass gets hosed with OC, or his toes twinkled with a Tazer, or the sense knocked out of him with some "less-lethal" bullshit, he's thinking the cop did not defeat him, technology did.
And guess what. He still wants to kick that cop's ass because he hasn't proved he can do it man-to-man.
I know there are many many many police officers who train and work out hard hard hard and have all the strength and stamina and technique and tactics to trash any bozo on any street any time of the day or night. For sure. But if a bad-guy gets arrested after getting a dose of OC up his nose, I'm tellin' ya he's still thinking' he's got something to prove.
But if he knew that if he pulled a knife he'd be dead from multiple Center of Mass hits from at least one police service weapon, then he might not even carry a knife, lest he be mistaken for some miscreant. If a fella knew that a sure way to get his lights punched out would be to put a hand on a cop, then maybe that fella would just keep his hands where and how they couldn't possibly be seen as a threat to anybody, most importantly that fine police officer asking him for a freakin' driver's license.
Christians who kiss the asses of blood-thirsty Muslims, drivers who bend over for jay-walkers and almost cause traffic accidents, a commander-in-chief who won't let his soldiers win a just and necessary war ~ so, where am I going with all this?
We're in a war against more savages than most of us care to know. Whether you're a police officer or Joe or Jodi on the street, there is more danger threatening our lives and our American way of life than ever before. And if we just keep on petting it, keep treating it as though it's some simple misunderstanding on the part of our attackers that we can explain away and then eeeeeeverything will be swell, then their tricks and lies will work and life as we know it will go away. Perhaps forever.
For Joe and Jodi; you need to man up and stay ahead of the soothing tone of the false assertions that Islam is the religion of peace. Stay ahead of the lies by studying here. You need to read this entire blog and follow the links and get serious and trained and in shape and hard hard hard and armed and dangerous to the degree your conscience and local laws will permit. Because you are the first responder to your little shit-storm. The cops might not make it in time, try as they will.
Having done my time on mean streets, I feel like I am permitted to offer this to law enforcement officers: You know your beat, the people you greet and confront every time you load up. So, you know what alley tussle you can end with a glance and which little fuck-stick is about to need a trip to ER. Stay brave. Be braver, if you struggle with that sometimes.
But jump with me to what I see as the worst case scenario, other than a nuke about to go off at the county fair: shooters in a school with many juvenile hostages, just like Beslan. I don't believe any PD teaches its officers, other than snipers, to shoot a terrorist who has his or her arm around the neck of a hostage or who is carrying a small hostage in his or her arms. For fear of the outrage that would come if a hostage is killed by a cop, many departments have a no-shoot policy, cops must back up and try to negotiate.
But when Beslan hits America and you, a rock of a police officer, are heading down a school hallway looking for shooters, it's my belief that you're going to have to place the life of the other hostages ~ however many there may be ~ above the life of any single hostage... including the one who may be right in front of you who reminds you of your daughter.
A bad-guy in the hallway with a child in his arms is doing one of two things: taking the child from a room in the building where he probably raped a/o sodomized the girl/boy to the place where the other bad-guys and hostages are, OR taking the child from the place where the other bad-guys and hostages are to a room where he will rape a/o sodomize his package. And you won't know for sure where he is between A and B or B and A. You won't know.
But there is one thing you must know before you ever see him or her: that dirtbag isn't going to take one more step in either direction with that child.
If it's me in that hallway, I'm gonna do this: because I probably won't have a COM shot at the terrorist and I don't want him escaping to rejoin his "brothers" or to hurt the hostage, I'll put a three-round burst into his knees. In doing so, I will probably hit the hostage as well. As soon as I pull the trigger on his knees, I'll advance quickly and put a burst into his head, even if I have to force my weapon under the screaming, bleeding hostage to get the shots off.
Can I get from where I shot him in the legs to where I'm putting three in his melon fast enough to prevent him from shooting the hostage? Yes. Somehow I will pull this off. That motherfucker is not going to hurt any more people than what the scenario I'm describing suggests is possible. And that needs to be your attitide, your mental state, belief, conviction and intent because anything less lets the terrorist get away and leave you wondering for the rest of your life why you ever put on a badge in the first place.
Two days ago I was reminded, as all of should have been, that we truly are at war with enemies who are inside the walls, not just howling and clawing at the gates. You're all aware, I imagine, of the terrorist attack at Fort Hood which occured on 5 Nov 09 so I won't go into detail or bitch about this or that or even link to the many stories about the attack. But I will close this post by saying that we all need to be as brave and determined as this woman:
We'll know more when she tells her own story but here is at least a preliminary report of the courage and perseverance Sgt Munley displayed in the face of danger and death.
Sooner or later a similar attack will take place here in CONUS ~ no doubt. This jihadi thug has enflamed the ragged, riotous, retarded rabble that calls itself Islam. They are encouraged and pumped and some will try copy-cat attacks, seeing how easy this one was. They will do all the damage they can but will try to kill more than their new hero, whose name I won't list here.
Then, what will you do?
Will you be unprepared and just lay there weeping and whimpering, waiting for somebody else to be Mighty Mouse?
Will you be prepared in your heart and soul ~ as well as in training, tactics and equipment ~ to attack attack attack and defeat whatever the savages may be doing to destroy you and those you love with as much brutality as they can muster?
Muslims in general have earned the trust deficit they now suffer and about which they whine. Don't give them the benefit of the doubt. Treat them as human beings, but do not be fooled by any of them no matter how friendly they may appear.
It is not bigotry or racism to recognize behavior that suggests a Muslim may be bent on jihad. And it is not wrong to speak against it, to bring it to the attention of the appropriate authorities until they take action, or to defend yourself and others.
So, I ask again: what are you gonna do, unerschrocken? Keep playin' patty-cake or do the honorable, right thing?
