The Gates of Hell

Reader comment on item: "Death to America"

Submitted by Ben Creech (United States), Sep 8, 2002 at 21:50

The most common argument against the defense of America is that if we defeat our enemies the "gates of hell" will open and we will be overrun by demons. Pipes offers solid evidence that the "gates" have been open since 1979 and that the demons do their worst when unopposed. Until America begins to deal with terror at the same level as Israel, the demons will continue to stream through the gates. Winning the war could take years but the more intensely it is pursued, the shorter will be its duration. This will slow the demons to a trickle and eventually close the gate, ultimately saving America, Israel, and untold lives throughout the world.

Thanks for quoting the final wisdom of Strausz-Hupe. He was indeed the quintessential geopolitical strategist.
