in response to reader comment: What is going right with westerners?

What is wrong with Westeners is 50 years of wealth, ease, and cretinous popular culture that have turned Westerners into gutless, brainless, spineless appeasers of evil. Anybody with a sense of history could have predicted this. The march of history goes around in the same, ever-repeating circle; it does not march off on the straight and glorious road to ever increasing understanding. The guy who said that "those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it" didn't understand that it doesn't make any difference if you learn from history or not; YOU ARE STILL CONDEMNED TO REPEAT IT. That's just the way it is.

Nations are great when they are young, focused, racially homogeneous, and filled with hate for their enemies. American and Western Europe are old, unfocused, certainly not racially homogeneous, and they have lost the capacity to hate — a capacity which is necessary if you are to defeat your enemies. Islam hates everybody, especially Western Europe and America. That is why they are winning this war and the civilized nations are losing. Americans and Western Europeans would probably just as soon that moslem forces wipe Israel off the map; that way these 'great' nations would not have to deal with the whole 'inconvenient' affair any more. Then there would be PEACE — they think.

Obama is a moslem and many high officials in the American government are pro-moslem or anti-Israeli. That shows how far this once (long ago) great nation has sunk. The treason in the hearts of at least half the American population is a thing to behold. But, hey! Let's not worry about all tedious this stuff. Let's light up a joint, kick back and tell each other how 'civilized and tolerant' (ie: gutless, spineless, and brainless) we have become.

So what's Israel to do? I'd suggest they start one great big, hell-of-a-war by doing something that will set the whole western world on fire — how about nuking Mecca, Medina, Damascus, Riyadh, and Tehran? That ought to do it.
