Best thing I’ve seen at HotAir.com in a long while

Go Read: Oh no… we wouldn’t want to engender any hate or vitriol toward Muslims, would we? (a rant) 

Best part:

Perhaps all of the liberals heading for their fainting couches over the idea that we need to be finding the terrorists who are now proven to be on our own shores can, just this once, get a grip and decide which side of this war they are on. And if not, they should get out of the way, STFD and STFU. We have work to do and some of it’s not going to be pretty. But if we’re not willing to do it then I don’t want to hear any more crying from them about lives lost or gun laws or discrimination when the next group of ISIS “inspired” animals pops up here at home and wipes out another group of people at a Christmas party.

Amen and Amen. We have to protect this Republic and that’s the biggest thing. We can disagree on Wilsonian foreign, when it comes to Nation building and so forth. But, this is an attack on the Republic. We need to quit pussy footing around and get to work to destroy these people, once and for all.

BREAKING TERRORISM NEWS: Paris hit by major terrorist attack, 158 Dead

At what point do we consider Islam a threat to the security of the world?

The story:

France has declared a national state of emergency and has closed its borders after scores of people were killed in multiple gun and bomb attacks in Paris.At least 100 people are reported to have died at the Bataclan concert hall in central Paris.Gunmen took many hostages there before being overpowered when police stormed the building.Others died in a reported suicide blast near the Stade de France and gun attacks on city centre restaurants.Paris residents have been asked to stay indoors and about 1,500 military personnel are being deployed across the city. Via: Paris attacks: More than 100 killed at Bataclan and restaurants – BBC News

I just do not know what else to say.

Update: I’ve had some time to think about this a bit more and there’s a few things that I would like to say. This attack of course, was a horrible tragedy and I hope like heck that France does avenge the attacks upon their country.

What I do not hope is this, that the United States of America gets involved with this fight. Sure we’ve got Isis here and they’ve hit targets here in America and they also hit targets where we have interests. But I think the worst thing that could happen is we get involved in a protracted war with Isis in Syria.

If anything, we should support France and let them bomb the crap out of that country, not the United States.

Also too, I really think that the United States of America and the European nations and France and the rest of the allied nations, really need to take a hard look at Islam. The problem is in Islam’s doctrines jihad is considered to be a struggle against evil.

The problem is it’s hard to figure out which Muslims believe that jihad entails violence towards that are that are non-Muslim and which ones do not.

My contention is this here, is the freedom of speech and freedom religion being extended to Muslims, worth seeing people getting killed like this?

I believe the smart answer is No. I believe the United States of America and the European nations under the United Nations and the rest of allies of the United States need to take a hard look at their freedom of religion and determine that Islam is not just a religion. But that it is a political philosophy as well and that is a danger to the security of every free human being around the world and its practices ought to be outlawed.

I know that sounds harsh and flies in the face of the Constitution. But America is a much different place than it was when the Constitution was drafted and many things have changed and Islam is not what it was back when the Constitution was being drafted in the America.

So, I believe our political leaders need to get together and think about this. Do we really want to risk continued risk having Americans blown up because some Muslim decides that he is going to be a fundamentalist Muslim or are we going to be smart and say this cannot stand?

If you are going to practice your religion like this you can’t live here in America. This is what needs to be told to the Muslim community. Unfortunately, we have people in government in positions of political power who are abject cowards and will not stand up to these people at all.

This, my friends is a true American tragedy.

Dueling Terrorists?

This is very interesting…

Via CNN:

(CNN)In a blistering new message, the leader of al Qaeda denounces the leader of ISIS as the illegitimate leader of a phony caliphate.

Exposing a glaring hostility between the two jihadi groups, Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leader of al Qaeda, openly attacks ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi for usurping the jihadi movement.

“We do not acknowledge this Caliphate,” he says, according to a translation from SITE Intelligence posted Wednesday. “We do not see Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as one worthy of the Caliphate.”

He dismisses al-Baghdadi as a pretender who declared himself caliph with the support of only “a few unknown people,” and established ISIS, which calls itself the Islamic State, “by force and with explosions and car bombs,” instead of by “the choice of the people” through “approval and consultation.”

He also faults al-Baghdadi for failing to support Muslims who are not in the Islamic State’s territory.

“When Gaza was burning beneath Israeli bombs, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi did not support it with one word, but his main concern was that all the mujahideen pledge allegiance to him, after he assigned himself to be the Caliph without consulting them.”

At first blush this would be comical. However, if they start trying to outdo each other; it could be deadly for the United States. However, don’t expect any sort of action from this lame duck President.

 

The shooting in Chattanooga just got personal for me

This one hits home with me, I will explain that in a minute. But, first, the video:

Now the story, via WANE.COM:

Darlene Proxmire, the step-grandmother of Randall Smith, called NewsChannel 15 Saturday morning and said he passed away around 4 a.m.

This is an update to the previously published story:

PAULDING COUNTY, Ohio (WANE) One of the victims of Thursday’s mass shooting at a pair of Chattanooga, Tennessee military centers was originally from Paulding, Ohio.

Randall Smith was one of the two service members wounded in the barrage of gunfire from 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez that claimed the lives of four Marines in two separate shootings Thursday morning, according to a story posted on the web site of KWCH Eyewitness News 12, the CBS affiliate in Wichita, Kansas. Smith was serving in Chattanooga as a logistics specialist in the U.S. Navy at the time of the shooting.  The article indicated his mother now lives in Delphos, Kansas, which is how the station learned of his identity. His step-grandparents live just north of Paulding, Ohio.

Here is why this story hits close to home. Darlene Proxmire is the wife of Jimmy Proxmire. Jimmy is a friend of mine from Amateur Radio. (AKA as Ham Radio) I found out about this from Jimmy himself this morning on 75 meters, where I talk to Jimmy now and again on 3.865 Khz. Jimmy’s callsign is KC8VRR and is one of the nicest guys on that frequency.

My Prayers to that family.

As for my feelings about this event and it’s perpetrator and his religion; one only read my sidebars and see the blogroll, under anti-Jihad bloggers — to know how I really feel about what happened here. 😡

I am seriously considering rethinking my paleoconservative position. I have always felt that war was wrong and that America should mind its own business. But — this is personal, this is war, this is an attack on the Republic and we should respond in kind to these beasts. They’re not rational humans, they’re animals and they should be treated as such. 😡
