We need honesty and courage

Reader comment on item: NATO Fights the Jihadis

Submitted by G.Vishvas (Germany), Oct 5, 2006 at 10:44

What we need for exposing and defeating islam (a fascist totalitarian ideology posing as a religion) is honesty and courage.

But politicians, lawyers, burocrats, financiers and top military leaders are known to be like that - dishonesty, opportunism, "enlightened" greed as a way of life.

NATO will fail in its confrontation against islam.

In islam you have an enemy like never before.

The voters are self-deceivers and like to be deceived. They punish politicians who are honest (see what happened recently in Hungary) and courageous.

We need a new way of fighting world evils, esp. islam. NATO won't do. The Soviet Union was not half as evil, heinous, kill-joy, arrogant, manipulative and tricky as is islam. Success against SU does not translate into success against islam.

Don't waste resources and hopes on NATO like lazy, dishonest, self-lulling constructs.
