The Long Awaited Islamic Reformation


download-13

Liberals, Leftists, Conservatives, Neo-Cons, Neo-Liberals, Islamists, Pan-Islamists and everyone else concerned keep speaking of a long awaited Islamic Reformation.

Actually, that Reformation has already began and is ongoing. Except that Islam is going from a slumbering megalith to an extremist controlled ideology. Islam began a long sleep sometime in the 1700-1800 era. It went near comatose after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. Two things occurred to awaken Islam:

 
1. (a) The Brits made a deal with the devil and helped to create Saudi Arabia and (b) FDR made the Wahhabist scum a US protectorate in exchange for oil making Saudi Arabia one of the richest shit pot nations on the planet.
 
2. (a) Israel declared Independence in 1948 and (b) whipped Arab Muslim ass in 1967.
 
Since those two dates, Islam has slowly awakened.
 
That “Great Awakening” was quickened during the Soviet Afghan war when we, the US, brought Saudi Arabia into the mix and gave the Paki ISI the go to give monies to whom they would. The Pakis and Saudis funded the most extremist elements of the Afghan combatants.
 
The US said…Oh, we’ll just let things run their course after the Soviet hightailed it out of Afghanistan. Things ran their course. The Saudi Wahhabists built mosques and madrassahs all along the FATA and NWFP. They took in war orphans. The Paki ISIS needed a hedge against India and, just in case, Iran.
 
Thus was born the Taliban.
 
Prior to all of this, you have the US educated Qutb who created the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muzzie Bro’hood spawned every extremist group on the Sunni side.
 
Iran’s great Shi’a Revolution? You can thank Allen and JD for that. Oh…there was a Roosevelt in that mix as well. 26 years later…BOOM! The Iranian Shi’a Revolution brings the nutjob Khomeini to power thanks to a pacifist doofus named Jimmy.
 
The seeds to all of this were planted by US shortsightedness and ignorance of the Middle East, its people and culture as well as the megalomaniacal hubris of Post World War II America .  Americans are “exceptional” and, therefore, can’t be bothered with history or culture or anything that might call into question our exceptional lack of foresight.
 
We’re genius like that.
 
I reckon the MCIC knew that the Soviets would fall eventually and needed some reason to keep hysteria rockin’ and rollin’ in the free world.

Conflict in the Middle East predates Islam by thousands of years. This region is a crossroads of history. Traditions of hate, violence and war date back to before the Greeks and Persians to the earliest stories of the pre-Phoenician peoples. Expecting “Peace in the Middle East” One may as well search  for the burial place of Genghis Khan. Find one; you may find the other.

*********************************************

None of this is to say that the United States or Britain is to blame for Islamic Extremism. Islam was born in blood. It will die in blood. Islam was spread via conquest. Muslims and Liberals love to deny this. However, the Islamic Empire spread from Medina to Andalusia (Spain) in an amazingly short period of time. None of these territories invited Mohammad, Abu Bakr or Uthman into their lands. Islam did not quietly knock and ask for admittance. Islam rode at the head of a world devouring empire. People “submitted” to Allah not because they suddenly saw the light. They converted or “reverted” because it was the prudent thing to do. If you were given the choice between conversion, death or high taxes and second/third class citizenship in your own lands, most would choose to convert.

Islam is a violent Abrahamic religion. All three of the religions spawned by Abraham are violent and full of blood lust — Xtianity, Judaism and Islam.

The Extremist Muslims are following the path of previous Muslims including that of Mohammad. Denial of this is denial of historic reality.

Islam is violent. It also knows peace. However, like Xtianity, the majority of the religions is about purifying the world and making it ready for God/Allah via force.

Same God, same violence, same hatred for the non-believer. Muslims choose which path to follow. Those who choose violence choose that path regardless of outside influence. They would choose that path even if the US and Britain had never existed as neither existed when the Islamic Empire first invaded Europe, Africa and Asia.

Big Army, Pls Re-designate our Military Installations after Winners

Fort Bragg: named after the worst Major Army Field Commander in American History

I have always questioned the designations of several Army Posts. For instance, Fort Bragg is named after Confederate General Braxton Bragg. Bragg may have been an honorable fellow who simply fought in a losing cause. That doesn’t matter to me. Point of fact, this guy lost nearly every battle over which he held field command. He was a loser. Why would we name the Post which hosts arguably the Army’s “Premiere Infantry Fighting Force” and US Special Forces Command after a General who never tasted victory — a complete loser. Never mind that he was a Confederate General, the guy was incompetent and soundly defeated consistently in battle.

Braxton_Bragg

Confederate General Braxton Bragg — Loser of the Battles of Perryville, Stones River, Chattanooga. He defeated only Rosecrans at Chickamauga and Rosecrans was a worst General than even Bragg. LTG U.S. Grant finally put paid to Braggs’ career at Chattanooga after which the idiot President Jeff Davis appointed Bragg Confederate Military Advisor. He advised Jeff Davis, thereafter, on how to suffer defeat soundly.

With that in mind, I would change the following Post’s names as shown below:

Fort Lee to Fort Montgomery C. Meigs (Quartermaster of the Union Army in the Civil War)

Fort Bragg to Fort “Slim Jim” Gavin (youngest Division Commander, made combat jumps in World War II, beloved Commander)

Fort Jackson to Fort Omar Bradley (Omar Bradley was the “Soldier’s General, Commanded D-Day invasion forces in Europe, World War II)

Fort A.P. Hill to Fort Phil Sheridan (Best damn Cavalry Commander in the Union Army from the 1860s to the 1880s)

Fort Knox to Fort G. S. Patton (America’s Armor General and Glory Hound, Old Blood and Guts, essentially won World War II single handedly…lol…I’m joking…sort of.)

Fort Meyer to Fort Winfield Scott (He actually named “The Old Guard.” Commanding General of the Army of the US, Hero of the War of 1812, his Anaconda Plan was eventually what won the Civil War even though he was ridiculed when he presented it and driven out into retirement)

Fort Hood to Fort Abrams (Got us the hell out of Vietnam, Father of the Modern Army for all intents and purposes)

Fort McClellan to Fort Eisenhower (McClellan was another loser and a political idiot. Ike was the exact opposite)

Fort Campbell to Fort Anthony “Nuts” McAuliffe (Answered the German demand for surrender in Bastogne with the one word reply of “Nuss” which is nuts in german, was acting commander of the 101st at Bastogne.)

Fort Benning to Fort Ridgeway (Commanded 82nd Airborne Division in WWII, brought Korea back from the brink after McArthur nearly lost it all to the Chinese)

Another possible name for Fort Knox could be Fort “Mad” Anthony Wayne or Fort George Rogers Clark.

I know that not all of these are CSA Generals. Still, better names overall. The guys after whom I would re-designate our Army Posts were all winners…even Abrams.

What do you think? I’ve never understood why we named so many Army Posts after losing Generals.

It’s as if we are tempting the GoDs. Perhaps, it explains why our wars have gone so poorly since Vietnam.



Why in the name of the GoDs would anyone name a post after Braxton Bragg? Braxton Bragg is quite possibly the worst Commanding General of a Major Field Army in United States History. I can’t think of anyone who lost more in history excepting Hitler. Do the Germans have a Hitler Kaserne? Do the Russians name their Military Bases after losing Commanders? Did Lt. Gen. Boris Gromov who lost Afghanistan get an Army Post named after him?

Hell, they’ve changed the names of their cities to rid themselves of the stink of incompetence and loss.

Why would the Army…..HOW could the Army defend the designations of these Army Posts?

That some of these guys were Confederate Generals doesn’t bother me so much. That many of them were incompetent fools is my point. Only in America do we honor our losers thusly.

The Last Century Accomplished Nothing!

I do not think that Hillary is Hitler. One politician is about the same as the other. Some, like Hitler, are simply more successful in moving society to accomplish their aims. The aims are all the same. Control of the populace in a given geo-political area for the advancement of personal power. There is nothing more to it.

There are no Great Leaders out there.

Look at the great leaders in history.

Lincoln — He kinda freed the slaves. But not really. In order to keep the South in the Union, he prosecuted a war which claimed the lives of millions. How is he different than Hitler or Stalin or FDR or Churchill or any of the Monarchs of the 17th Century.

FDR took America to war for Democracy and to save the Free World. In the end, more people were enslaved by communism than were threatened by the madness of Hitler.

Ike, JFK, LBJ took us to war in Vietnam to stop the communist dominoes from falling. In the end, those communist dominoes fell anyway. Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia all fell to communism. Indonesia became a dictatorship.  Nixon’s “peace with honor” all but ensured the fall of Cambodia to the Khmer Rouge.  Congress’ failure to support South Vietnam or Laos after our withdrawal ensured their fall to communism.  What did we accomplish except to participate in slaughter and sacrifice our citizen soldiers to madness and arrogance.

We supported the Indonesia dictator.

How were the people of Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia or Laos better off after our War of Liberation?

In Iraq, Bush “liberated” the Iraqi people from Saddam Hussein only to have Obama hand those same people over to a Shi’ite despots and the Islamic madmen of the Islamic State.  All the while, we supported the Monarchy which fuels Sunni Extremism via Dollar Diplomacy.  The Wahhabis owe everything to Saudi Arabia.  The Wahhabis are ISIS, al Qaeda, al Jihad, the Muslim Brotherhood and every other Sunni Islamic Extremists group extant.

In what war has America actually helped anyone?

We defeated Germany and Japan? They went on to become economic superpowers. This would have occurred anyway. In fact, the war with Japan was over the US and Britain keeping resources away from Japan that would have allowed them to become an economic superpower. We basically warred with Japan for five years in order to destroy them so that they could recover and become exactly what we had attempted to stop them from becoming. Millions died because FDR and his economic obstructionism. Yet, FDR is a hero and Hitler is a villain.

It was the same with Germany. Britain did not want Germany to become master of the Continent. So, we warred with them twice in conflagrations which engulfed the world in flames…so that Germany could become the economic master of the Continent.

What did we accomplish with our wars?

Asia slowly recovers with Laos and Cambodia lagging and their people suffering in poverty. Vietnam is becoming a mini-economic superpower and are loosening their economic controls so that capitalists can profit. This benefits the State and the Capitalists. There is relatively little benefit to the people.

Germany is the power of the Continent.

Britain has lost it’s empire. (I suppose that’s a plus).

America is still an economic power though we are doing our best to implode.

Russia is what it has always been. The poor man of Europe and the villain of the east.

China is a burgeoning beast with the potential to ruin or save the world as it has always been.

And history begins to repeat itself.

Is war on the horizon?

It seems that Political Leaders of the World are repeating the sins of the last century even as they preach of peace. I see no peace. I see no good coming of this next few decades. If the “Great Leaders” of this coming Century are as incompetent and arrogant as those of the last, the World is doomed to simply repeat the sins of the past.  There were be Great Leaders only because they take us into Great Wars.

Where are the visionaries?  Where is our Jesus?  Our Moses?  Our Gandhi?  Where are the leaders who not only preach peace but practice it?

Can the earth survive human war or human peace?  If we war on one another with our current technology, we may make this world uninhabitable.  If we do not war and continue “peaceably,” human being will reproduce in unsustainable numbers.

There seems to be no way out.  By War or Peace, humanity’s ignorance and lack of foresight endangers itself…ensures it’s fall.  Perhaps that is not a bad thing.

Middle East Culpability

wahhabi-idiot-terrorist
On the Middle East. Much of the violence in the Middle East can be directly traced to actions of outside interlopers since World War 1.

The Brits worked to place the Saudis in power after World War 1. America acted in concert with others to empower the House of Saud during and after World War II.

The Saudis are Wahhabis. The State Religion of Saudi Arabia is Wahhabist Islam. The Muslim Brotherhood is a Wahhabist Movement. Al Qaeda, al Jihad, ISIS and every other extremist Sunni Islamic organizations traces it’s origins to the Muslim Brotherhood and/or directly to the preachings of al Wahhab.

We created the beast which spawned the demons whom we fight in the War on Terror.

In the 50s, Kermit Roosevelt was sent by Ike and the Dulles Bros, at the behest of Britain and Anthony Eden, to depose Mossadegh who was Prime Minister of Iran. Mossadegh was deposed. The Shah was placed on the Peacock Throne of Iran by Kermit Roosevelt.

The Shah used his Savak to terrorize the people of Iran. He exiled Khomeini.

Carter weakened the Shah some 25 or 30 years later by speaking to Human Rights and withdrawing support.

Khomeini returns.

Khomeini and his revolution are the progenitors of all Shi’a extremism. Khomeini and his Iranian Revolutionary Guards created Hezbollah.

No Kermit, no Shah. No Shah, no Khomeini. No Khomeini, no IRG. No IRG, no Hezbollah.

Vietnam plays a role here as well. Prior to Vietnam (and Iran), the US was seen as a champion of the downtrodden and a revolutionary victor over Colonialism.

After Vietnam, we became a colonial oppressor.

Cuba plays a role here as well. We attempted to deny Cuba self determination.

The US is no longer a champion of the oppressed people’s of Colonialism by our own actions. Instead, we are merely actors for Big Banks and Big Corporations.

This is how we are seen, with great justification, by much of the world.

Much of the terrorism aimed at us is directly attributable to our support of dictators and despots throughout the Middle East and Asia.

ISIS, al Qaeda and other Islamic Organizations feel that in order to take power from the House of Saud and other despotic regimes that they must attack us. We are the primary support for the Saudis and other despots. We have supported nearly every Sunni despot extant.

We supported Saddam before we deposed him. We gave him his initial batch of nerve agents and gave him the means to develop more. Then we used possession of these as rationale for attacking him.

We did the same thing to Noriega. As long as he was our man, we turned a blind eye to his drug trafficking. As soon as he decided that he wanted to go his own way, we defamed him and attacked him. I’ve read widely that the CIA actually assisted in his drug trafficking and money laundering before we turned on him.

The Middle East is a mess partially because the West disbanded the Ottoman Empire, partially because of the idiot Sukes-Picot agreement, partially because of oil profits, and partially because of the Sunni-Shi’a divide.

America has always pushed a divide and conquer agenda on the Middle East.

Now, we complain that they are divided and can’t or won’t come together.

We’re hilarious.

If the Middle East were to come together as in the old days of the Qaliphate, does anyone think that they would do otherwise than what ISIS claims as a goal?
