In Search of Plan C

Andrew McCarthy lays much of the blame for the disaster in Iraq on George Bush, whose greatest mistake he argues was lacking a clear vision of who the enemy was. Bush refused to see the problem was radical Islam. Instead of focusing on destroying it, Bush futilely tried to reform it. Failing that, he put a faction in power hoping it would ‘evolve’ as time passed. But as McCarthy implies, no evolution was forthcoming and the disaster was compounded by Obama. (Snip) Obama took the alternative strategic route of denying that Islam was a problem in need of reform; rather

FTA: The horrifying implications of treating Islam as an enemy akin to Nazism were explored in 2003 in my essay The Three Conjectures. It argued that the nature of warfare in the region would eventually compel the West to adopt Islamic rules of fighting, for Muslims would resist destruction to the full extent of human ingenuity which centuries of their tragic history had taught them. The West would be forced to fight like them, since they could fight no other way, which eventually would result in the literal extermination of the Islamic world — or near enough.

The horrifying calculus of what might happen if Islam gets its Bomb and uses it is in Wretchard´s September 19, 2003 Belmont Club post entitled The Three Conjectures. With the likes of Obama in power, should the Islamic Bomb level Manhattan, Washington, Miami, or Chicago, it´s quite possible that nothing will be done. There are funds to be raised for the DNC and golf to be played, after all.

Below is a link to the Three Conjectures; they boil down to minus one times ten to the ninth power. Read them and shudder. But don´t bother your mind that they might be performed if the worst happens to the USA while Zero is in office. He´d rather tuck his tail between his legs like a whipped dog and go golfing. Or fundraising from the richest wooly-minded dupes on Planet Earth, many of whose money was gained through government largesse and legislative entitlement.

Whether you agree with McCarthy or not, it´s been plain to some in my great unwashed circle, that the enemy was Islam (intentionally left out radical) and that rules for fighting these bastids was clear...ruthless.

Pussyfooting around this enemy has gotten us nowhere. But I fear the lesson has not yet been learned. Plan C or whatever.

I remember going to a political powwow just after 2011, and people and the politician were still worrying whether their lawns were going to be green that year. I fear nothing has changed, but for a raised eyebrow.

We must nuke them soon but gently....effectively and with an eye to warning the others.

All the lesser disinfection strategies have failed.

Bush knew who the enemy was. It was the Media who demanded he not use plain language to describe the threat, and Liberals in general who resisted any action that could have truly ended the threat. And now Liberals work hard to lose what so many Americans died to achieve.

But we had to get out of Iraq. We´re still in Bosnia, still in Japan for that matter, but Iraq? We had to leave.

McCarthy, stuff yourself. We the People know whose fault it is Iraq is falling. This is indeed another Vietnam. And yet another reason why Democrats should NEVER be in power. No one so deceitful and untrustworthy should be allowed so much as a spork to wield. You have my Liberal contempt.

The distinction between a Warrior and an ordinary Patriot is that the Warrior is also willing to kill for their country. Since Vietnam, we have sent our military to do the Peace Corps´ mission, with rules of engagement that made it impossible to eliminate the enemy.
The investment of blood and treasure was laid to waste when Iraq´s constitution established The Islamic Republic of Iraq. Trying to establish democracies over there is a fool´s errand but spilling blood for a theocracy is un-American.

The view that "Islam is peace", voiced often during the Bush years, showed that the politicians in Washington were and are totally clueless. Where are the moderate Muslim leaders, in the US or anywhere in the world, for that matter? I can´t think of a single one who has stepped forward to strongly condemn the radicals. Those that aren´t actively engaged in Jihad are underwriting jihad with their money. Islam cannot coexist, and until the West realizes that, the Muslims will win.

LYING FLAT ON THE deck of a fishing boat was a twenty-pound striped bass, its gills rising and collapsing like the bellows of an accordion. "Purple is the color of adrenaline. That´s why the bass have a purplish tint when you catch them," explained Captain Sloan Gurney of Black Rock Sport Fishing Charters. Standing over the fish, grinning triumphantly, was chef Anita Lo, who had just won the battle with the formidable opponent on the other end of her line.

John Seigenthaler, a legendary Tennessee journalist, intimate confidant to two near-presidents and fierce advocate for racial equality, died Friday. He was 86. Mr. Seigenthaler passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by family.

"He was proud of his hometown, Nashville, and grateful for the opportunity to share his energy and passion with this community."

CHATTANOOGA — In a move that is unusual but not unprecedented, the United Auto Workers union has sidestepped its loss in a worker vote in February and created a local union to represent workers at the Volkswagen plant in Tennessee. And what´s surprising, considering decades of fierce anti-union efforts from the other foreign-transplant automakers in the South, this time the union has the tacit approval of Volkswagen itself.

David Goldman writing from Tel Aviv, explains that Hamas is broke, has lost its patrons in Egypt and weaker than ever. It is bombarding Israel to attract more terror funding. By contrast, Israel has thrived under fire and is poised to become more prosperous than ever. (Snip) Eugene Volkh famously described how Asians in America became white. The process was simple: they became rich. This implicit correlation between wealth and race distorts nearly every media story.

STARKE – Florida prison officials today executed a man convicted of the 1994 rape and slaying of an 11-year-old girl. It was the state’s sixth execution this year. Eddie Wayne Davis was executed by injection at Florida State Prison at 6:43 p.m. Davis declined to say any final words before his sentence was carried out. Executioners put the IV needle into Davis’ left arm around 6:30 p.m. Davis began muttering to himself after the process began, but witnesses in the viewing area couldn’t hear what he was saying because the speakers had been turned off.

Eddie Wayne Davis, 45, is scheduled to receive a three-drug injection at 6 p.m. at Florida State Prison for his 1995 conviction on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Kimberly Waters, whose mother had briefly dated Davis.

Washington Post columnist Jackson Diehl recently observed, “The Obama administration has developed a bad habit of founding its Middle East strategies on wishful thinking.” “Wishful thinking” is kind. Delusions of grandeur from the man who promised he had the power to make oceans recede, the authority to bring prosperity and equality to all, and the unique ability to cause peace the world over is more accurate. And so it is that Obama took to the pages of Ha’aretz, Israel’s equivalent of the New York Times (if not worse) in its left-leaning, progressive ideology and penned an article titled “Peace is the

The sad thing about many high school English literature readings is they are assigned too early in life for many students to fully appreciate.

Glenn Beck has set up Mercury One Children and Family Border Relief Fund to help illegals coming into the United States. He’s already raised $600,000. Beck stated that Obama would not have to step in and ask for $3.7 billion if private charities would pick up the slack and give to the swarm of illegals crossing the border. Is he kidding? Do we really need more churches and non-profits enabling this blatant attack on America? Rich people and liberal elite billionaires have no skin in the game when it comes to the consequences of illegal immigration so what do they care? It’s the working class and middle class who will take the hit.

The facts are simple. The IRS systematically targeted conservative and Tea Party groups after their activism proved decisive in the 2010 midterm elections—Obama’s famous “shellacking.” The effects of this targeting were widespread. Some Tea Party groups were neutered in the months before the 2012 presidential election. Few of the explanations or justifications of this targeting provided by IRS leaders and Obama administration officials have held up. IRS officials at first denied that any targeting had taken place. That was false. They later claimed that the targeting had involved only low-level employees in the Cincinnati office. That was false. They argued
