Another Red Dawn

Terry Schappert tweets:
Get back to me when the solemn vigils, prayers, and empty denunciations are done. Until then, we will be training.
From the great Mark Steyn:
The Barbarians Are Inside, And There Are No Gates 
...I'm Islamed out. I'm tired of Islam 24/7, at Colorado colleges, Marseilles synagogues, Sydney coffee shops, day after day after day. The west cannot win this thing with a schizophrenic strategy of targeting things and people but not targeting the ideology, of intervening ineffectually overseas and not intervening at all when it comes to the remorseless Islamization and self-segregation of large segments of their own countries. 
So I say again: What's the happy ending here?
From Powerline:
“The American Blood is Best, and We Will Taste It Soon"
No one can seriously doubt that ISIS, and other Muslim terrorist groups, are doing all they can to attack the United States. We, meanwhile, are welcoming enormous numbers of immigrants from Islamic countries, and have gone “open borders” so that anyone can enter the United States from the south. What reason is there to think that Islamic terrorists will not enter across our unguarded borders and organize attacks similar to, or worse than, what France experienced tonight? None.
From Dairy of a Mad Voter's Roger L. Simon:
Why Paris Happened
But what is clear from the carnage at The Bataclan theatre and elsewhere in Paris that we will be studying for weeks or months to come is that the West has no leader in our evident civilizational war — no Churchill, no Roosevelt, no de Gaulle, not even a George W. Bush. It’s certainly not Barack Obama, a ludicrous man who thinks the world’s greatest problem is climate change in the face of Islamic terror.
I suppose more than anything else I remain haunted by the closing words of Vachel Lindsay's "The Leaden-Eyed:"
Not that they die, but they die like sheep

I hope we are not doing nothing.
I hear the major middle eastern countries are 5 years to bankruptcy based on the current oil prices.
I remember the Red Brigades and Bader Meinhoff type groups drying up and blowing away after the fall of the Soviet Union.
Perhaps our strategy is to bankrupt these current terror group's sponsors.
I hope someone is thinking ahead.

I live in the midwest near a major university. Up until a few years ago the vast majority of foreign students were Asian. Now the are middle eastern and the average age has risen about 5 - 10 years. Why would so many 30 year old males be coming to "study"? Keep vigilent my friends.

Well, if they want to taste THIS American family's blood, they better pack a lunch, and wear kevlar. As my dad, a Naval vet of Guadalcanal would have said, "Ah don't THINK so, scooter.". How ironic, we were on the range today, hollering " Aloha Snackbar!!"

It's really hard to stop people who have homicidal intent and are willing to die in the attempt. It's best to help them on their journey, but without any expectation of general deterrence.

The religion of peace. A 'great' religion. My arse....

Warning graphic photo and video of aftermath in theatre.

The Freeholder said...

That "graphic photo" should be plastered on billboards across this country. This is why we are armed, this is why we train and this is why we carry. We may still wind up on that floor, but at least we had a chance. Those poor souls had none.

Unless you are a twitter user, don't bother going to that realradio site. Can't be viewed.
