McChrystal's Counterfit COIN

I read Rolling Stone's article about General McChrystal. I found it to be excessively laden with obscenity and judged it to be a trap and setup job. Gen. McChrystal should be intelligent enough to avoid such traps. He wasn't; he's gone. Big deal. We are still wasting blood and treasure. We are still losing.

COIN is a fool's errand. Since the Vietnam conflict, this nation, mesmerized by the idiot box's 15 minute segments, with all problems solved within an hour, has lost patience for long and bloody wars. The enemy is taking advantage of that weakness, banking on it. By setting an irrational deadline, President Obama is falling into their trap.

Building a viable government in Afghanistan would take many decades. We don't have decades. Whatever infrastructure we build will soon be destroyed. Our progress is always reversible.

From Vietnam we should have learned that it is necessary to seize, hold and secure territory. We should have learned that the enemy must not be allowed sanctuary. We should have learned the necessity of cutting off the enemy's supply lines.

From Somalia we should have learned the necessity of giving our forces sufficient manpower and equipment; sufficient air & artillery support to accomplish the mission.

From Vietnam, Korea, Somalia & Iraq we should have learned that wars are fought to be won, not stalemated. The lesson: no more half-assed minimalist wars. We should also have learned the necessity of excluding mass media from the theater of war. We lost Vietnam in the streets and on t.v.

Unfortunately, we keep electing leaders who are not intelligent enough to learn from history and apply its lessons. But the worst mistake is failure to identify and accurately describe the enemy, learn his tactics & strategy, strengths & weaknesses and create tactics for taking advantage of that knowledge.

Two Damned Fools


September 19' 06, WCBS Radio quoted Shrub's speech to the General Assembly. [Emphasis added for clarity.]

``Extremists in your midst spread propaganda claiming that the West is engaged in a war against Islam. This propaganda is false and its purpose is to confuse you and justify acts of terror. We respect Islam.''

August 19, '07 Fox News quoted Shrub's speech to the American Legion convention.

"Bush said long-term solutions for confronting terrorist groups and their state sponsors include "advancing freedom and liberty as the alternatives to the ideologies of hatred and repression," seeking to install secure, democratic states "that are at peace with one another, that are participating in the global markets and that are partners in this fight against the extremists and radicals" and drying up "the stream of recruits" for Al Qaeda and other terror networks."

B.H. Obama

April 06 ' 09 msnbc quoted Obama's speech at Cairo.

"Barack Obama, making his first visit to a Muslim nation as president, declared Monday the United States “is not and will never be at war with Islam.” "

Oh, we are not at war with Islam? What then? Who is at war against us?

Who are we at war with?

Between 1787 and 1815, our merchant vessels were attacked and seized, their cargo confiscated and ransoms & tribute demanded by the Barbary Pirates. When asked for an explanation, the reply was clear. This is lifted from Wikipedia.

In March 1785, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went to negotiate with Tripoli's envoy to London, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman (or Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja). Upon inquiring "concerning the ground of the pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury", the ambassador replied:

It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every Muslim who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy's ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once. [2] [3]

The Barbary pirates were motivated by loot, and justified their plunder by Allah's writ. That should be a clue for the damned fools. When members of the magnificent nineteen slit the throats of the flight crews they pronounced takbir: "Allahu Akhbar" (Allah is greater!) If the enemy is not Islam, why is it acting in the the name of Islam's demon?

Al-Qaeda is nothing more than a name, a false front to prevent us from recognizing our enemy. Our enemy is Islam. All of the Islamic terrorist groups share one common element; what is it?

War of ideas

G.W. Bush

At Off Club, Kathleen T. Rhem quotes Shrub from a speech made April 24 '06.

"But secondly, it will be a major blow because, in the long term, the best way to defeat an ideology of hatred is with an ideology of hope."

The Washington Post, February 9, '06, quotes Shrub from another speech.

The terrorists have an ideology. They share a hateful vision that rejects tolerance and crushes all dissent, a world where women are oppressed and children are indoctrinated, and those who reject their ideology of violence and extremism are threatened and often murdered.

B.H. Obama

At NRO, James. S. Robbins quotes Obama from an al-Arabiya interview. January 28, '09.

On U.S. relations with the broader Islamic world, Obama drew clear lines between the radicals and the general Muslim community, and stated, regarding the terrorists: “Their ideas are bankrupt. There’s no actions that they’ve taken that say a child in the Muslim world is getting a better education because of them, or has better health care because of them. . . . And over time, I think the Muslim world has recognized that that path is leading no place, except more death and destruction.”

What Ideas?

Shrub & Obamination won't identify the ideas in the enemy ideology. They describe those ideas as dark, totalitarian and bankrupt, but they fail to identify them. I am about to do something the President won't do: identify the most significant ideas in the enemy ideology.

Only Allah has the right to be worshiped.

This expression occurs frequently in the Hilali & Khan translation of the Noble Qur'an. I found it in 35 of the 114 surahs. Here is one example.
2:163. And your Ilâh (God) is One Ilâh (God - Allâh), Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (there is none who has the right to be worshipped but He), the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

If only Allah has the right to be worshiped, then religions other than Islam are prohibited.

Only Allah has the right to rule.

33:36. It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allâh and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allâh and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error.

Governments not operating on the principle of Shari'ah must be overthrown and replaced by Islamic regimes.

Muslims are obligated to enforce Allah's rights.

What is the relationship between Allah and the Muslims? It is a master: slave relationship, one to many. Why does Allah need Muslims; what does he want them for? To do his wet work. Surah At-Taubah 111 makes this clear, read it and curse Islam. [Emphasis added for clarity.]

9:111. Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur'ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success .

What is Allah's cause? His cause is to make Islam dominate the world. How do I know this? By Allah's word and hadith.

9:33. It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad ) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islâm), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh) hate (it).

.Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 65:

Narrated Abu Musa:

A man came to the Prophet and asked, "A man fights for war booty; another fights for fame and a third fights for showing off; which of them fights in Allah's Cause?" The Prophet said, "He who fights that Allah's Word (i.e. Islam) should be superior, fights in Allah's Cause."

In 9:111, a bargain is mentioned, what is it? The bargain is the sale of their souls to Allah. We learn more about it in Surah As-Saff. It is the commerce which saves a Muslim from the fire and assures his admission to the celestial bordello.

61:10. O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment.

61:11. That you believe in Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allâh with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!

61:12. (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of 'Adn ­ Eternity ['Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success.

61:13. And also (He will give you) another (blessing) which you love, help from Allâh (against your enemies) and a near victory. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad ) to the believers.

You have seen the carrot, now its time to view the stick. For the description of Hell, turn to 56:41 and 22:19 The threat of eternal damnation is clearly implicit in At-Taubah 38-39.

9:38. O you who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allâh (i.e. Jihâd) you cling heavily to the earth? Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with the Hereafter.

9:39. If you march not forth, He will punish you with a painful torment and will replace you by another people, and you cannot harm Him at all, and Allâh is Able to do all things.

Orders to fight

These are contained in Surah Al-Anfal & Surah At-Taubah. They are fight until loops, with neither geographic nor chronological limits.

8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.

9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

The orders to fight are confirmed by Moe in this hadith.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah." Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, "O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?" He replied, "Whoever says, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah', faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have."

Practical Application

For this, we turn to Maududi's Jihad In Islam. Open it to page 15.

...Islam is not merely a religious creed or a set of rituals but it is a comprehensive system that tends to annihilate all tyrannical and evil systems in the world and to enforce its own reformation programme which it deems best in the interest of mankind.

Flip one more page.

...to eliminate the hegemony of un-Islamic aystems replacing them with a balanced social and cultural order called the Word of Allah by the holy Quran,...

They will not be satisfied with reconquering Israel, Spain, Greece, etc. Their objective is total global conquest.

When Islam attacks

The religious obligation to participate in the annual attacks on disbelievers is fard al-kifaya, binding on all eligible Muslim men until a sufficient number have reported to the battlefront.

When we retaliate

The religious obligation to defend Dar al-Islam is fard ayn: binding on all eligible male Muslims, plus slaves and adolescents. If the Muslims are overrun, the fard extends to women, children, sheikhs and slaves.

A clue for you

Brig. S.K. Malik, in the Qur'anic Concept of War, uses language so plain as to be crystal clear. We must learn from this! This crucial quote is found on page 60. [Emphasis added.]

Terror cannot be struck into the hearts of an army by merely cutting its lines of communication or depriving it of its routes of withdrawal. It is basically related to the strength or weakness of the human soul. It can be instilled only if the opponent's Faith is destroyed. Psychological dislocation is temporary; spiritual dislocation is permanent. Psychological dislocation can be produced by a physical act but this docs not hold good of the
spiritual dislocation. To instill terror into the hearts of the enemy, it is essential. in the ultimate analysis, to dislocate his Faith. An invincible Faith is immune to terror. A weak Faith offers inroads to terror. The Faith conferred upon us by the Holy Qur'an has the inherent strength to ward off terror from us and to enable us to strike terror into the enemy. Whatever the form or type of strategy directed against the enemy, it must, in order to be effective, be capable of striking terror into the hearts of the enemy. A strategy that fails to attain this condition suffers from inherent drawbacks
and weaknesses; and should be reviewed and modified. This rule is fully applicable to nuclear as well as conventional wars. It is equally true of the strategy of nuclear deterrence in fashion today. To be credible and effective, the strategy of deterrence must be capable of striking terror into the hearts of the enemy.

To terrorize us, they first set out to destroy our faith. Got that clue yet? You can not defeat Muslims while they continue to believe in Allah. So long as they believe in Allah's promises and threats they can not be defeated short of annihilation. If you would win their hearts and minds, you must first emancipate them from Allah.

Go ahead, build schools, they will blow them up when you turn your back. Build roads, they will mine them. Try to protect civilians, they will blow them up wholesale. Institute idiotic rules of engagement, they will use human shields.

Wise up!

If you do not cause Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq & Pakistan to be depopulated or apostatized, they will continue to be corrupt tyrannies and state sponsors of terrorism. Your choice: smoking ruins, de-Islamized or victors. Which will it be? We suffered terrorism because we displayed weakness and lack of resolve in Somalia. Can you learn that lesson or not?

So long as Muslims continue to believe that Allah will burn them in Hell if they do not wage war against us, and will reward them with eternity in the celestial bordello if they do, we will never have peace and security. They will continue to torment us, poking and prodding for weakness. Eventually they will nuke us.

The war must be waged against Islam, and we must use the ultimate weapon: truth. We must show Muslims the reality of the character and works of their Profit. We must use Islam's canon of scripture, tradition, exegeses & jurisprudence to show Allah's slaves what he is doing to them and what they are doing to others. Those who retain a scintilla of residual morality will apostatize. We have MOABs for the recalcitrant remainder.
