in response to reader comment: Dr. Pipes is mistaken

Lorthog has provided numerous excellent and practical suggestions in regard to how to defeat islamism/islam. At an earlier time in America, these suggestions would be embraced and implemented by the vast majority of Americans including the elite, the politicians, the leaders of our nation. Unfortunately, the present day cultural, educational, political, demographic, and financial/economic conditions militate against an honest assesment and a genuine confrontation with an insidious and aggressive islam/islamism.

The American Zeitgeist has radically changed and has been seriously corrupted since the 1970's by the pernicious encroachment of islamic/OPEC/saudi money and power derived from their control of the energy chokepoint of the American and world economy. Saudi arabia, the saudi royal family, and other OPEC countries declared war on the USA in the 1970's with their oil embargo and quadrupling of oil prices virtually overnight, from $3 per barrel to $12 in 1973/74 and another doubling in 1979. The American response to this economically devastationg attack on the USA by islam was ..... nothing but submit to the ugly islamic blackmail. Presidents Nixon, Ford, and Carter set the precedent of American inaction and appeasement and submission to islamic/OPEC economic and oil intimidation and blackmail and it continues to this day with more subtle yet effective techniques of corrupting American institutions to quietly acquiesce to the islamic perpetrated violence, murder, totalitarianism, hatred, and intimidation throughout the world. America's elite, its cultural, educational, political, financial and economic leadership can not, it will not respond to this islamic aggression even though it is becoming obvious that it will destroy freedom and liberty in America as surely as islam has historically corrupted, murdered, and destroyed other peoples and civilizations for 1400 years.

America's elite, its cultural, educational, political, financial and economic leadership are now well within and entangled in the islamic/OPEC/ saudi web of financial corruption. Too many American politicians and cultural leaders benefit personally from their evil alliances and secret understandings with their islamic/saudi counterparts. The American people and their liberty and freedom and economic well being are now ripe for the pickings as long as America's elite, its cultural, educational, political, financial and economic leadership are left intact and they use their power and influence to suppress justifiable American outrage at islamic aggression and psychopathological ideology. This is why Lorthog's very reasonable and practical suggestions for dealing with islamic/islamist lunacy can not actually be implemented. The political and cultural apparatus of America have been thoroughly corrupted by islamic/OPEC/saudi money. They are now essentially, consciously, and willfully opposed to any confrontation with the islamic ideology that approves of the islamic opresssion and aggression, their violent and murderous psychopathology, even in America. This is what the leadership of America has finally evolved into: cowardly, self-seeking, obsequious, narcissistic, willfully blind fools who are are betraying their own and our great legacy of human liberty, freedom, and opportunity. They know of the ugliness and brutality of islam for 1400 years throughout the world and across many cultures and races and nations. But our American leaders are too comfortable with their betrayal.

This is why this islamic world war may very well end terribly for America, for the West, and for freedom. With respect to islamic lunacy, aggression, oppression, murder, violence, intimidation, and blackmail, too many of America's leaders are the present day Benedict Arnolds. Betrayal is treason. There should be a penalty for those who betray America, whether it is the stealth betrayal practiced by hillary clinton, obama and other political and cultural leaders, or more obvious forms of betrayal.
