George S. Patton, it could be argued, is the greatest American combat general in our history. During WWII Dwight Eisenhower was a diplomat and an administrator.
Patton actually led troops into battle.
He swore. He drank. He was a pure warrior. George S. Patton was at times completely devoid of tact, and it got him into a whole lot of trouble on more than one occasion. He did know how to win a war. And that was to kill as many of the enemy as possible. That’s how wars are won.
Here we have a man in the person of Donald Trump who is at times also utterly devoid of tact. His language is rough and profane. There is no refinement about him, there is no gentility. He speaks plainly, crudely and with brutal candor. It’s not poetry and it’s not smooth or soothing happy-talk, like what we’ve gotten for the past seven years from the current CIC. And look where we are.
We’re in a war against Islam for our very survival, even though we’re constantly told by the current Commander In Chief, as we were told by the one who held that office before him, that we’re not in a war against Islam. Islam means peace, said President Bush. Islam means peace, says President Obama.
No. In Arabic Islam means submission.
This war has ebbed and flowed, but has never ended, since the 7th Century. It is an eternal war. Please notice I did not say “Radical Islam.” There is no such thing as “Radical Islam”. There is only pure, unfiltered, doctrinal 7th Century Islam, as written in the Quran and the Hadith collections.
We’re in a corner here, thanks to the abject misunderstanding of Islam’s history and doctrine by the entire Western World. Europe is just now beginning to awaken to the reality of Islam’s horrors, as its cities are over-run by millions of invading Muslims and its women are gang-raped. More are coming behind the ones who have already arrived.
So, depending on what they believe our situation to be, Americans have a big decision to make. Which man do you want to lead us through the war? Or do Americans actually perceive that we’re really in a war?
The jihad movement is never going to go away, no matter who becomes the Commander In Chief.
And whom we choose to be the next CIC will determine whether or not we survive as a Constitutional Republic.
What do you believe our situation to be? Are we really in deep trouble? Or have the counter-jihadists, such as I, over-stated the case? Can all of this violent “extremism” business, which Mr. Obama tells us has nothing to do with Islam, be worked out solely through diplomacy and carefully measured responses to acts of extremist violence? Or should we just surrender and convert?
These are the grave questions Americans must answer.
Why did Ike choose George S. Patton to lead the Third Army out of Normandy through Europe? Not for his eloquence or for his diplomatic or administrative skills. Ike put Patton charge because he was an unvarnished, merciless warrior.
Whither goest thou, America?
