Since we aren't serious...

I have been beating the drum about the risk of disturbing the Western bees too much
  • for some time

  • The problem is that there is currently no way to transmit general public anger to the missiles. They are controlled by politicians, who are the craven tools of media and their polls. Those media do not want us to respond effectively, and will treat anyone advocating effective response with blackout and then the harshest criticism.

    The only effective response other than genocide is direct attack on the persons of those who encourage and subsidise jihad. That means impoverishing and killing very powerful men who have no direct- in the sense of provable criminal liability- connection with the actual murderers. It means seizing assets, including the oil weapon, from countries who will mouth anti-terrorism platitudes. Mistakes will be made.

    And the very WORST thing it will require is that discretion be used without endless public debate, scrutiny, and second guessing. If we kill the wrong tyrant, our response should be "He should have been a better friend", not gallons of tears. Killing a counter insurgency means forcing open choice on others. Killing a religious war means killing the idea.

    (Hold up, I'm having a thought.)

    Really, it's not a world wide counter insurgency, it's a world wide religious civil war. The jihadis are quite as much citizens of our world as my Confederate ancestors were of the United States. Western liberty of thought is no more historically inevitable than abolition was. We and the jihadis share competing life templates is all. Theirs- narrow codes of personal behaviour, subjection of women, tightly limited expression, criminalisation of homosexuality- are pretty much the historic human state, and do not differ much from the European template of four centuries ago. Or four minutes ago if you ask Pat Robertson about buggers.

    My point is that since it IS a civil war, we really do have to STAMP OUT the very idea of "Islamism", which I define as using the power of the state to enforce, or recognise, the behaviour requirements of the Moslem faith. That means Ataturkism at home. No hijab on the street. No time off to pray or for Ramadan for government employees. Islam and its adherents get no more recognition than Catholics or Amish.

    And it means fighting our enemies abroad, and our enemies are EVERY ADVOCATE OF ISLAMISM. Every one of them. Every Emir, every Madrassa, every newspaper. Every riyal spent on encouraging murder. Every cell tower and lap top that calls for jihad. You might think it, but if you express it, we'll be after you like white on rice. And we have really big ears, and our aim might be poor.

    Which is the third point of the trident, we have to force people to decide which side they are on, and act on it. Only when the populations of Moslem countries are as upset about bombings as they are about bacon will we turn the corner.

    We have to be overt about it. We can't just be against airplanes blowing up. "Please don't kill us" is not an aim. And it's defeat, because it's really "please kill us after you reduce the rest of the earth, and us, to the point of submission that killing us is the only thing left."

    We have to say NO. We have to make support for sharia as inexpressible as is support for another great Moslem institution, slavery. We have to make it clear that Islam may only be a private matter, not a public institution. Once we accept that responsibility our course will become much easier.

    The problem is, who will say these things? They are unsayable in public because they will always be designated as racism, intolerance, paranoia, or some other evil by any media or educational outlet.

    Don't think that mushroom clouds over Paris or London or New York will make a difference, they won't. Do you really believe that a few hundred thousand dead westerners will make the New York Times editorial board say "We were WRONG. Kill millions. We won't complain."

    Hell, we won't even dispose of Terry Nichols.

    Which leaves us with three concieveable futures.

    1. More of the same bombing outrage/tough talk/appease/repeat cycle. Eventually we will allow the world to become so chaotic that China steps in to restore order.

    2. Public anger so pervasive and powerful that it installs serious people in authority. These serious people will come from no current large political machine, by definition they are not serious. Dark horses, third parties, or revolution. Don't look for much proportion or moderation from them.

    3. The jihadis finally DO fuck with the wrong people. They blow up a school in the Ukraine, an airport in India, or a train station with a French nuclear submarine captain's family inside it, and a serious leader does what we aren't tough enough to do. What harm would befall Belarus or Esthonia, or Capitaine de Vaisseau D'X, if one of them puts a few megatons on Mecca or Riyadh?

    Welcome to a new police blogger!

    Courtesy of PC Copperfield. She's accurate and funny!

  • "For the first time, not all female police officers are lesbians, so that makes for a much happier atmosphere of flirting and inter-colleague affairs, rather than all the nasty insults about "dykes", which are now just reserved for those women officers with short hair."
  • A perfect jihad victory!

    Attention jihadis!

    Every time you fly, carry a cellular telephone. Be sure it can't be traced to you- steal one, or just get a broken one at a junk shop. When you fly, take it with you. When you arrive at your destination, leave it between the seat cushions. Eventually the infidels will find it. They will panic- I wonder how many tens, or hundreds, of thousands of pounds are sucked out of their economy by turning around a trans atlantic flight? Plus it reinforces the whole point of the jihad- the kuffar are craven weaklings.

    Their fear makes them stupid, too- no one thought to eject the thing from the airplane, take the batteries out, or just stamp it to bits?

    Allah is truly great.

  • " LONDON - A British Airways flight to New York was turned back to London’s Heathrow airport on Sunday because of a security scare over a mobile phone that did not belong to any of the passengers, officials said."
  • Suppose we hadn't "foiled" the latest bomb plot...

    It's a shame if the "liquid bomb" plot people actually went to the trouble of buying the chemicals, since they got 110% of their goal- demonstrating their mastery of us by fear- just by talking.

    But assuming they had succeeded, and on one day 10 airplanes had made unscheduled mid ocean landings, what would we do?

    I know, panic and cower, just like we have done. And our leaders would go obediently to mosques, to apologise for anger against Moslems that no one has or acts upon, and to explain that as long as one merely sympathises with murderers, one has a free ride. And there would be lots of appeals, weepy services, and the families of the dead would be sad and/or richer.

    But I mean, what would we do against the enemy?

    The actual plotters would be dead. Assuming we ever found out who on the missing airplanes blew them up- fat chance, unless someone talked- they are British. Their encouragers are British. There is no "proof" that there is any participant in, or financier of, the outrage who is not British.

    What do we do? Aside from just take it?

    Until we get aggressive with those who encourage murder, that's what we'll have to do. Get used to the idea, presidents and prime ministers. Now and then, you'll have to execute the sad announcement/grovel at mosque/memorial tribute/we are resolved speech/ wait for the next one gavotte. Your masters in Bradford and Dearborn will be in touch.

    Don't feel badly about being the puppet of random criminals. I'm sure that Washington and Pitt and Lincoln and Curchill would do exactly the same thing in your place.

    "Islamic Fascism" is a term for the ignorant...

    This “Islamic Fascism” is a stupidly ahistorical phrase. The people engaged on the other side aren’t fascists, they have no political or economic ideology at all, fascist or otherwise. People just say “fascists” because that’s the leftover Soviet term of abuse, and it sounds bad.

    May as well call them “Islamic Klansmen” or "Islamic paedophiles" or "Islamic wearers of checks with stripes" for all the sense it makes.

    They are Moslems. Fanatical, extreme, fundamentalist, or just true believers, but their religion IS their ideology and war aim. It’s like saying the Crusaders were "Catholic Nazis" or those of Gustavus Adolphus “Protestant White Supremacists”.

    It still beats broad strata, though.

    Quoted on the Belmont Club!

    I'm famous, uncredited but even so.

    Unintentionally hilarious OFFICIAL police blog...

    Thanks to P. C. Copperfield!

  • " IKrishna @ Babu R/o Mudadi house Batwal Taluk abused one Vishwanatha Poojary (43) R/o Mithakodi house Mudadi Bantwal Taluk in filthy language and assaulted by hand and also gave life threat owing to a trivial issue. "

  • Isn't it always a trivial issue?

    Franklin Roosevelt would FIRE CHERTOFF!

    "Look at CNN, Mumtaz! The brothers made the Jew Chertoff piss himself with fear! Over some bottles of peroxide!! Truly Allah is mighty."

    If he is "rattled", he is in the wrong place. If he can't keep it to himself, he is in the wrong place. The chatterboxes who talked to the media about this are in the wrong place.

    SHUT THE FUCK UP, idiots! Knowledge is power, but only if you keep it to yourself. The answer to "How was the terror plot foiled?" should be:

    "Infidel magic. Next question."

  • ""Wednesday night was a long and troubling one for Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. A bubbling plot by British citizens to blow up airplanes had come to a boil in the past three days, and as British authorities arrested dozens of suspects around London, it was Chertoff's job to coordinate the U.S. defenses. Scary intelligence reports pop up all the time, but this particular terror operation got close enough to being carried out that it rattled even the normally sedate Chertoff. "Very seldom do things get to me," he told Rep. Peter King, the Republican chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, in a phone call late Wednesday night. "This one has really gotten to me." "

    Another Moslem victory, with not a single casualty...

    “Did you see the news today, Ahmad? All the brothers had to do was TALK ABOUT carrying bombs onto airplanes, and now they quake in fear of every gym bag! Until the end of time, no Infidel will carry a Godless bottle of water or satanic book onto an airplane! Millions of money and thousands of hours of aggravation, just from talk!

    Allah is truly mighty, that the west cowers from the very thought of martyrdom operations!”

    Next year, look for a terrorist plot involving exploding underwear. Then we'll have to fly naked.

    If we overreact to the point where millions of passengers can't carry a laptop onto an airplane, then they have beaten us. We're just waiting for the next command. When there's a conspiracy about bombs in ships, look for multi billion dollar ship precautions and follow on delay and expense. Train bombs? Inspect every boxcar with the new Federal Department of Every Box Car Inspection.

    What strikes me is that they are winning huge economic victories without taking a single casualty. They just have to find some jihadis who are willing to "conspire", get caught, spend a few years in a safe western prison, and come out as heroes. We- as we permit our masters to direct us- deserve to lose.

    The proper reaction is this:

    "Today, we discovered a plot to bomb airplanes. We know that the oil revenues of Saudi Arabia are used to finance the men who encourage and plan similar conspiracies- maybe this one, maybe not. I have today ordered the sequestration of every bank account and financial instrument owned by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Ten per cent of each account or instrument will be deducted to pay for investigation, infiltration, and destruction of jihad encouragers. To help prevent conspiracy, every cellular telephone tower in Saudi Arabia has been disabled. To promote air safety, no airplane may fly to, from, or over Saudi Arabia. These measures will continue for at least the next 180 days. Since no one was injured in this jihad attempt, we have not killed the hundred most senior government officials of Saudi Arabia, nor have we confiscated that country's oil infrastructure. We hope this encourages the government of Saudi Arabia to bend its efforts to discourage murderers rather than to incite them. To other governments, Saudi Arabia was a random choice among jihad encouragers. Next time it could be you. To our own citizens who side with our enemies, think again. To those who call this disproportionate, if you were on those airplanes you would think differently. No reaction to threats against Americans is disproportionate or beyond imposition. I will not go to another funeral caused by our weakness."

    "The carrots have failed. I will fight the war they want. I will over react. I will profile. I will punish disproportionately. I will put cruise missiles and SEAL / SAS teams on the kings and prime ministers who finance this. We will ATTACK our enemies. THEY will never know where the next blow will strike. THEY will wonder what form it will take. THEY will fear US. That is all."

    No one walks around Germany with a swastika on. Why not? It's not sensitivity or guilt, it's because the last time that happened, Germany was turned into a smoking ash heap.

    SOME political leader is missing a real chance.
