David Goldmans advice and Aikido

Reader comment on item: Another Islamist Assault, Another Western Cringe

Submitted by Shishir (United Arab Emirates), Sep 14, 2012 at 03:19

In the Japanese martial such as Judo,Aikido and its offshoots Jiu Jitsu the key to victory is win your opponents strength against him.

What Goldman recommends was elucidated by Sun Tzu in the theoretical sphere and Japanese senseis in the more earthly realms.

What the West fears from Muslim is their unpredictability, their capacity for mob violence ,sensivities to any perceived slight to their religion and their perpetual victim status (which endears them more to the State Department and COFR types but no matter it is a powerful weapon)

Their weaknesses are also considerable ,it really doesnt take much imagination for pit their weakness against their strengths and turn the latter into weaknesses as well.

All that is needed is a normal measure of self confidence in their values, history and civilization.Not an excessive unwarranted confidence which the Muslims possess but considerably more than they do now! A shrewd and patriotic leader can revive and harness such forces that lie dormant in the mostly anti Muslim Western populace.

The question is does any have the nerve?

Mitt Romney provided a strong antidote to Obama's grovelling and apologizing.But is it enough?

AN AMBASSADOR WAS (POSSIBLY SEXUALLY VIOLATED) AND HIS CORPSE DRAGGED THROUGH THE STREETS AND ALL WE HEAR FROM THE PRESIDENT IS "WE CONDEMN IN THE STRONGEST TERMS"???!!

Is this a joke...? The President has become a caricature of himself.The only way to avoid another Obama term is for Romney to start speaking on the applications of Aikido to foreign policy.Especially Western style heavyweight boxing and wrestling as practiced by Bush and Rumsfeld(a champion wrestler) against their opponents have not served their ends.
