Winning the war

Reader comment on item: Winning the Propaganda War [versus Radical Islam]

Submitted by SHmuel HaLevi (Israel), Dec 29, 2005 at 05:28

Gentlemen,

Intrinsic to winning any sub section of a conflict must be a decision and unequivocal actions leading to winning the conflict itself, the whole kit and caboodle.

As proven by the israeli, US as well as European accrued "winning" points in the Islamic War, the propaganda war is being fumbled as part of the overall fumbling.

There is no evidence that any of the above are in reality trying to defeat the enemy, but to democratize it, educate it, servicing it, calming it, arming it, debating it and in the meanwhile addressing it with a range of pathetic pseudo military things such as rubber bullets, shamless retreats, talc powder loaded cannon shells, downgraded airborne ordnance, etc.

Decisive victory in the propaganda war is squarely predicated upon winning the shooting war. Completely.

In the other hand, if engaging the enemy in debates is that important before getting the enemy to collapse and surrender, then lets do it just as aggressively as the shooting war should be.
