How to Win

Reader comment on item: Israel Shuns Victory

Submitted by Dave Green (United States), Mar 29, 2006 at 01:58

Since 9/11, Islam has attacked India, France, Great Brittan, Iraq, Sudanese Christians, Spain, etc. In return, the entire world, pays Islam billions of dollars for its petroleum, both directly and through political back channels. In other words, the entire world now shares the delusions of the Israelis. We all experience the worst but cling to various fantasies that the other side will change.

This strategy is akin to apeasing the mafia through an ever-increasing piece of the action. Each payment only increases the expectation of future payments and the contempt of one's enemies.

To win, the US must take the following actions, with or without the support of the rest of the world::

1, Confiscate the oil fields of the Saudis, the Iranians, the Kuwaitis, and the Iraqis and the global finanical assets of all Moslems;
2. Destroy Medina, Mecca, and other Islamic "holy" cities;
3. Deport back to the Middle East all Moslems who do not renounce their religion;
4. Kill enough Islamists (a figure in the tens of millions, at least) to defeat the will of the remainder to fight any one in the world.

The only real question is how many Moslems will need to die? It's not a small number.

Gernany, a country of 78m, needed to suffer 3.5m battlefield deaths, 4.6m battlefield casualties, and 2m civilian deaths before surrendering.

We shouldn't assume Islam will require anything less.
