Containment Strategy Needed

Reader comment on item: Arab Spring, Muslim Winter

Submitted by Dave (United States), Dec 5, 2011 at 16:08

We need to admit that reform or progress in the Islamic countries may be impossible for the foreseeable future and that we will need an overall strategy to deal with a regressive and aggressive collection of degenerate states.

Some suggestions:

1) No nukes or WMD for any Muslim country.

2) Oil is strategic and we will use force if necessary ensure access.

3) Alliances with peripheral, non-Muslim states must be pursued (ex Cyprus, Bulgaria, Israel, India, South Sudan, Kenya etc)

4) Muslim immigration, especially to Europe, must be curtailed.

5) Subversion against Islamist regimes fostered- liberal elements fully supported.

6) States supplying arms to Islamist states have deliveries disrupted.
