The extraordinary conclusion of every branch of the American armed forces: to cover-up Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan’s repeated, self-professed Jihadi beliefs as a factor in his killing of 13 and wounding of 32 at Fort Hood in 2009.
Obviously, politics outweighs command responsibility, to the point where your commander will needlessly endanger your life. Take my advice, guys, this is not the time to enlist, or to accept a commission. You should boycott these chickenshit bastards until they reform themselves.
Twenty years after it became a common motif in the American legacy media, and despite its recent denunciation as a divisive promoter of segregation, intolerance (and in Hasan’s case official blindness) by the governments of Britain, France and Germany, multiculturalism has become official U.S. dogma.
STICKS AND STONES. Dallas County multiculturalism in action.
Seems military recruitment and other buildings, such as the Pentagon, are taking rounds from a mysterious, apparently amateur, shooter whose ballistics match. In five incidents since Oct. 17, s/he fortunately hasn’t hit anyone.
Much is made of Turkey’s alleged history of secularism. They banned the fez and the veil, etc., etc. Yet when I went to high school in Turkey’s capital city of Ankara in 1961-62, Turkish intolerance of non-Muslim religions was extreme.
Anyone openly espousing Judaism or Christianity was liable to wind up very dead— murdered in the street by the police if not stoned to death by a mob, in the name of one of the world’s most backward and certainly its most dangerous religions.
So I find it not at all surprising that a Turkish “charity” with ties to Hamas and other radical Islamic groups sent the “peace activists” to try to break Israel’s self-defense blockade of Gaza. Their goal, of course, is to destroy Israel. Here’s a video filmed by Al-Jeezera before the flotilla left Cyprus.
It is making for tense times on the Yahoo Groups email list of my old Ankara High School graduating class. Those who still laud Turkish culture, and even make infrequent trips back there, are fewer and farther between. Me, I’m going to Israel in the fall. To hell with Turkey.
As always. “Rage” screamed the daily’s lede headline this morning. Rage over the “raid.” Turned out to be a truncated NYTimes story. As always. In which the UN was treated like a reasonable, deliberative body instead of a gang of human rights-denying dictators in humanitarian drag. As always. And the armed terrorists on the Turkey-sponsored, blockade-challenging ship are called “peace activists.” As always.
And in my email a few hours later comes a “chin-up” letter from the Jewish Federation of Greater Austin reminding that “experience has shown us that whenever there is additional tension in the Middle East or military action involving Israel, we tend to see an increase in anti-Israel and anti-Jewish attitudes, expressions and activity as well as an added risk to Jewish communal institutions.”
It was not always like that. Only lately. Now that we have a lefty president more interested in coddling Muslims than leading the free world. Who sends out his cuckolded secretary of state to, what else, condemn Israel. It is, however, a good reminder that this “rage” isn’t really about Israel. It’s about something much older, and, once more, the old clouds seem to be gathering for a new storm.
Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, one brave high school kid parades an Israeli flag through a chest-thumping Muslim mob. Could be this storm won’t end like the others.
UPDATE: Spengler on the attack on Israel. The “attack”? Yes, the attack. And what are we doing? Joining the attackers: “For the first time in modern history the United States has cast its vote against Israel in the United Nations—in a resolution singling Israel out as the Middle East’s nuclear-arms miscreant and in a second resolution to condemn Israel over the Gaza flotilla charade.” G-d help Israel. G-d help us all.

Take it from one who knows. So the dimwit media, trying to obfuscate and excuse the Muslim major’s murderous fling at Jihad, are just taking you and every other sucker down the garden path to stupidity. Grow up and realize that there really are traitors in our midst and this kind of nonsense only strengthens them.
UPDATE: It may be too late. Our society may already be too sick to survive.
While our military, media and feds fall over themselves trying to pretend they have no idea why Maj. Hasan would murder and cripple 43 people, a Brit newspaper finds another supposedly-missing link to Jihad. Gee, what a surprise.
UPDATE: At least one national pol has the common sense to draw the logical conclusion.
Get out your American history book to figure out the headline. Let’s just say, in 19th century Southern American vernacular, the war on terrorism could be about to go up the spout. Appeasement of dictators, group hugs and singing kumbaya with the French and the EU could soon be the order of the day.
"Okay, the House has flipped. How about the Senate? We seem to be moving into darker territory with every quarter-hour."
And impeachment–don’t let’s forget impeachment. The Democrats sure won’t. The American people seem either to want Bush’s head on a pike, or a standoff between him and Congress. It looks like they’ll be getting one or the other before next summer. Then, while the cat’s preoccupied with all those congressional hearings and subpoenas, the Jihadis can play.
Hysterical? Unwarranted gloom? Maybe. Bruce Bartlett at RealClearPolitics thinks so.
"Indeed, I think that Democratic control of Congress has the potential to rejuvenate Bush’s presidency, just as Republican control gave new life to Clinton’s."
We’ll know in a few months, when the
investigations show trials begin.
UPDATE On the other hand there’s Ralph Peters best-case prediction of what the party of Michael Moore will do. I think he’s way too optimistic. I also don’t see the point of sending more troops, which is not the way to fight an insurgency. But he’s right about the Iraqis having to get off their butts and eliminate Mookie and his thugs.
