If we can beat the Russians, then we can eventually beat the US

http://www.metafilter.com/59435/Tomorrow

" No matter what happens now the Islamists will have beaten both of the superpowers -- first the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, and now the United States in the heart of Islam. The impact of that in Islamic civilization is going to be enormous. We have made bin Laden a prophet: His organizing concept for Al Qaeda was "The Russians are a lot tougher than the Americans. If we can beat the Russians, then we can eventually beat the Americans." "


And they were right. To think the US would out tough the Russians is insane.

Yeah really.

The people who think the muslims are going to take over the world are smoking some fine dope. People go apeshit when they hear some religious people feel that homosexuality is unmoral. What will these people do with the islamists introduce their public stonings for adulterers, sentences of gang rape, and burka requirement? The fact is that the left LOVES the war on terror, but they wish it would be  more explicitly a war against islam.

I totally agree.  even should Al Queda nail america, conquer britain, pwn germany and smash japans military against the british channel, there would still be new zealand.

and, lets face it, Al Queda will need some additional men before they can seriously talk about occupying america.

"People go apeshit when they hear some religious people feel that homosexuality is unmoral. "

no they dont.  people get upset when they hear that the fact some religious people feel that homosexuality is immoral is considered sufficient reason to punish homosexuals.


"What will these people do with the islamists introduce their public stonings for adulterers, sentences of gang rape, and burka requirement?"

we will tear the limbs bloodily from the islamic invaders and drive them from our shores.

.....or maybe beg them to leave us alone, depends on how we feel about ourselves at the time...

"The fact is that the left LOVES the war on terror, but they wish it would be  more explicitly a war against islam."

The most amazing thing about this post is that, despite the fact of you being such a stupendously ignorant person that you believe 'fact' means 'my personal opinion', you have nonetheless managed to spell most of the words correctly, and even arrange them into pretty good sentences.

Islamo-fascists aren't going to take over the world, but they sure can set it back a few decades.

They're most dangerous to unstable societies and can stall/reverse the advancement of established nations.  The ROI of a terrorist attack is so high thanks to our extreme overreaction that a teenager long on hate and short on cash can cause millions in economic losses.

Naturally, short-sighted policies brought to you by weak-willed western politicians are to blame.

Looks like I rubbed some salt on those open wounds!

Facts: Leftists don't like what islam represents. For example, violent, fanatical religious zealotry, intolerance of all dissent, and brutality towards women.

But the leftists are confused because the rightists are going after the islamists for having attacked america. This is confusing to them because they support attacks on america, and especially the attacks being on a capitalist financial center is a particularly happy event for leftists.

So what to do? They do as they are doing. They publically state they are against the war on terror, but they secretly support it. In reality, they support the killings on both sides. They like to see americans killed, and muslims as well.

Tsk tsk, more name-calling. Do you have any actual legitimate issues?

You did agree with me that leftists abhor the islamic agenda, so that is a common point to build a foundation on.

But what is it I have said that you disagree with?

Perhaps you are saying the left is not filled with glee when they see wall street capitalists jumping to their deaths? If so, this differs much from the perspective espoused by leftists here and elsewhere.

Or is it some other issue?

What the fuck makes you think half the US population hates the US? I think you would see a huge emigration rate or civil war if that was true. We are angry because the war in Iraq has nothing to do with terror and most of the "War on Terror" hasn't been a war on terror but a war on civil rights. And I know it's hard for you to understand that left doesn't mean "hates capitilism", I don't say you are a  rightest Nazi who hates freedom do I?

"So what to do? They do as they are doing. They publically state they are against the war on terror, but they secretly support it. In reality, they support the killings on both sides. They like to see americans killed, and muslims as well."

Here's some of the typical theology I get from the left:

The most that can honestly be said of those involved on September 11 is that they finally responded in kind to some of what this country has dispensed to their people as a matter of course.

That they waited so long to do so is, notwithstanding the 1993 action at the WTC, more than anything a testament to their patience and restraint.

They did not license themselves to "target innocent civilians."

There is simply no argument to be made that the Pentagon personnel killed on September 11 fill that bill. The building and those inside comprised military targets, pure and simple. As to those in the World Trade Center . . .

Well, really. Let's get a grip here, shall we? True enough, they were civilians of a sort. But innocent? Gimme a break. They formed a technocratic corps at the very heart of America's global financial empire – the "mighty engine of profit" to which the military dimension of U.S. policy has always been enslaved – and they did so both willingly and knowingly. Recourse to "ignorance" – a derivative, after all, of the word "ignore" – counts as less than an excuse among this relatively well-educated elite. To the extent that any of them were unaware of the costs and consequences to others of what they were involved in – and in many cases excelling at – it was because of their absolute refusal to see. More likely, it was because they were too busy braying, incessantly and self-importantly, into their cell phones, arranging power lunches and stock transactions, each of which translated, conveniently out of sight, mind and smelling distance, into the starved and rotting flesh of infants. If there was a better, more effective, or in fact any other way of visiting some penalty befitting their participation upon the little Eichmanns inhabiting the sterile sanctuary of the twin towers, I'd really be interested in hearing about it.

The men who flew the missions against the WTC and Pentagon were not "cowards." That distinction properly belongs to the "firm-jawed lads" who delighted in flying stealth aircraft through the undefended airspace of Baghdad, dropping payload after payload of bombs on anyone unfortunate enough to be below – including tens of thousands of genuinely innocent civilians – while themselves incurring all the risk one might expect during a visit to the local video arcade. Still more, the word describes all those "fighting men and women" who sat at computer consoles aboard ships in the Persian Gulf, enjoying air-conditioned comfort while launching cruise missiles into neighborhoods filled with random human beings. Whatever else can be said of them, the men who struck on September 11 manifested the courage of their convictions, willingly expending their own lives in attaining their objectives.

I think we are confused over the definition of leftist. Like most people when they say leftist I am thinking Democrat (Even if most of the world disagrees, in America left usually means Democrat), what the fuck do you think left is? And if you agree with that terminology then we are back to square one, your a dumbfuck, half the nation didn't vote for Bush.

there is, IMO, some truth to that.  the US has been causing trouble of various types in the middle east (and elsewhere) for a very long time, in particular we are directly responsible for both Irans current rulers and Saddam Hussein in general...he started off working for the CIA....

"That they waited so long to do so is, notwithstanding the 1993 action at the WTC, more than anything a testament to their patience and restraint. "

meh.  I dont agree with that.  the insane bastards have been trying to pull off this kind of stuff for a while,  just turns out its harder than it looks to do effectively.

"They did not license themselves to "target innocent civilians."

Ive not heard anyone, ever, make that statement.  do you have a link of _any_ kind to someone saying that?



"The building and those inside comprised military targets, pure and simple. As to those in the World Trade Center . . ."

again, do you have a link of _anyone_ saying that?  or are you just reciting the random comments of other internet trolls?


"The men who flew the missions against the WTC and Pentagon were not "cowards."

<shrug> they obviously weren't.  unless the new definition of 'coward' is 'willing to die for ones beliefs' they clearly fit the description of brave men.

"That distinction properly belongs to the "firm-jawed lads" who delighted in flying stealth aircraft through the undefended airspace of Baghdad,"

yep, I dont know if I would call them cowards, im sure they weren't given much choice in their mission, but they certainly were not taking an equivalent risk to the terrorists, were they?


" the men who struck on September 11 manifested the courage of their convictions, willingly expending their own lives in attaining their objectives."

yep.  well said.


I have no idea what point you are trying to make.  I guess thats one of the downsides of trying to discuss something with the 'one' most stupid person on CoT.  still, its nice to see consistency..giving your insanely stupid persona the added virtue of total incoherency is a nice move.
