Saying "Nuts" to those sentiments, Mansoor.

Mansoor writes: "Continuously challenging and testing the anger of Islamic forces would bring Denmark to the tip of a volcano."

Doc replies: "Nuts".

"Nuts" is a World War II military history reference, Mansoor. It expresses resolve and defiance in the face of a threatening enemy. It means, "I'm not going to let you take away my life and my freedom." It says, "The only way you're going to defeat me is OVER MY DEAD BODY. SO BRING IT ON, DIRTBAGS!" It says, "We're ready for anything you can dish out. Now stop bothering me with your silly threats, so I can organize my resources to achieve your destruction."

"Nuts" is just a more efficient way of saying all that.

If Denmark is to avoid slipping passively into slavery, because dhimmitude under sharia is slavery, it will only happen because tens of thousands of Danes all refuse to submit. When most of the Danish publishers printed Kurt Westergaard's Muhammad cartoon, it opened the door to preserving freedom from Muslim oppression in Denmark.

Now, if every free Dane makes 10 copies of the cartoon, and they all pin a copy on their chests, and they each post the other 9 copies on walls or posts, what do you really think is going to happen, Mansoor?

If every free American, every free Canadian, every free Australian, every free Englishman, every free Scot, every free Dane, every free Finn, every free Swede, every free Indian, and every free Irishman makes 20 copies of that cartoon, posts the copies all over their towns, and wears copies on their chests, what do you really think is going to happen, Mansoor?

I'll tell you what will happen. Those "Muslim forces" you refer to will tremble, fold, and completely cave in, like the "elite Iraqi military forces" who faced Americans in Desert Storm. Those "elite Iraqi military forces" who faced American forces in Iraq took one look at what was coming their way, dropped their weapons to the ground, and started begging for mercy.

Those "Muslim forces" you refer to, warning us that they'd like a volcano or something, will face millions of free men who have defied much more effective, professional, and capable opponents for the last few centuries, while Muslims spent those same centuries becoming less capable, less effective, and more convinced of their own delusions of grandeur.

We don't have to face those "Muslim forces" in organized armies. We face them on the streets, in back allies, in courts, in boardrooms, in classrooms, in factories, in mines, in cyberspace, and in shipyards. We face you as an entire civilization. And we say, "Nuts"!
