The End Game

Reader comment on item: Sudden Jihad Syndrome (in North Carolina)

Submitted by Mark Baratto (United States), Mar 16, 2006 at 02:46

Unfortunately, the West has not yet had enough pain to get angry. And so long as they are not angry, moderate, right-minded practitioners of Islam will never take a stand. Doing nothing is the safest course for them, as long as their host country finds an excuse for their cowardice.

The Islamists should, however, remember the lessons of history. Americans are mean ba--ards when we get riled up. You see, we really do believe that God (not Allah, whatever that is) is firmly on our, and our friends the Jews, side. Harry Truman believed it when he ended WWII with the Bomb, thereby saving approximately 25,000 American soldiers lives. He felt 25,000 Americans were more valuable than 500,000 Japanese. How politically incorrect; how racist! Guess what - most of America still agrees with him. Not the simpering dhimmi apologistas on the left, (they are the minority even if they do get plenty of attention,) but the average guy. And, surprise, surprise, he feels about Islam, whiny Muslims and the butchers in Iraq, a lot like Mr. Taheri feels about us!

Well friends, when the Jihadi's decide to nuke Phoenix, or Houston or wherever, America is gonna get mean - real mean. The gutless cut & run crowd on the left will be forced to dive for cover as the pent up frustration of Americans descends upon them. Middle easterners will be rounded up wholesale, if they are lucky. Do you have any idea how many rednecks with a closet full of rifles are just waiting to take out a little payback? I'm surprised it hastn't begun already. You'll all be talking about how great it was in early 2006 when all you had to worry about was bird flu & a few FBI checks on your way to Afghanistan.

It sounds like I make light of an impending tragedy, but I truly believe we will face much greater casualties in America because of our tolerance and slowness to anger. It will take more than the 3,000 killed in New York to wake this slumbering beast. But whatever the number, when it wakes it will not be put back to sleep ... If bin Laden & his ignorant 7th Century mullahs knew what was good for them, they'd leave it alone.
