“Brexit” in the United Kingdom on June 24, 2016 was long overdue and the first shots of the “Battle of the Bulge” of World War III, which we have been fighting for seven years with few knowing it was even happening; such is the nature of war in the 21st Century. It is low profile and focused on people not armies, forts and machines of war. War changes over time.
War grew out of raids by Vikings who attacked English and European seaside settlements taking their food, goods and women. When we evolved to duchies with castles, walls and fortified settlements, war was primarily sieges with the best equipped winning by wearing the other guy down or starving him out.
Siege warfare was tiresome so the art was “civilized” into contests between armed legions that would line up and shoot at one another with bows and arrows, crossbows, catapults, trebuchets and firearms finally ending in hand-to-hand combat with the winners being the last men, standing.
By the time of our revolutionary war such activities had refined to the point where enemies were expected to line up, “…in a civilized manner” and shoot at each other with muskets and cannon blasting balls, chains, rocks and small shot until one side gave up. All of this changed in our Revolution and the sequel War of 1812.
Rather than wait for the British Regulars to line up for battle and answer with our rag-tag “militia” armed with rifles designed to kill small animals for food, we invented citizen warfare, sniping at them as they marched from one location to the next and intentionally not killing them! We had observed wounded men took three or four others out of service to take care of them. Thus, one bullet took several men out of the force and a wounded man was a much greater burden on the invader than dead body. Wound one-third and you have destroyed the invaders and driven their General nuts.
The Brits finally tired of marching all over the colonies getting sniped at with men going down for more to carry them off and nurse them due to actions of a handful of civilians hiding in bushes nicking them with highly accurate small bore rifles. So the great British war Generals packed up and went home in a swivet, which was not a fashionable mode of travel. This was 1776.
In 1812 several Royal Armies of England returned to deal with us “properly” and got the same lesson over again, finding that no invading army is a match for an armed populace. Armies are never more than one-half percent of the indigenous population and on unfamiliar territory. The locals know every bush, alley, nook and cranny, hiding place, strategic position, and all they had to do was wait. Many were experienced in waiting, having been duck, deer or boar hunting, which are essentially waiting games as well as excellent training for moving through underbrush noiselessly.
The waiting style of warfare we invented has been adopted by Switzerland, where every able-bodied man between the ages of 18 and 55 is required to have a fully automatic, military rifle, a real “assault” weapon in his home, attend one meeting a month with his unit and fire 30 rounds of ammunition. If he has any civil or domestic trouble his weapon will be taken from him until he is considered stable and safe. There is not a living war general who would march an army into Switzerland. That has been our reputation since 1776, even though we are not as formal as the Swiss.
The number of deer hunters in the state of Wisconsin in one season exceeds the number of infantry soldiers in any nation on this planet and is the reason America has been free and always will be with the Second Amendment in place. Admiral Yamamoto, who had been educated in the United States, convinced the Japanese High Command they should never plan an invasion of America saying, “…there will be an armed American behind every blade of grass!” We should make it a requirement that every high school student be taught the objective in defeating an invading army is not to kill all their soldiers, but to wound one in four as that reduces their force to zero. And, it teaches a lot of international respect if we let it be known that is our policy.
The style of war changed after Hiroshima and President Truman’s doctrine, “Nuclear weapons are too horrible to use!” That was a phrase taught to him by Eleanor Roosevelt, who was given it by Alger Hiss and Harry Dexter White under an order of Josef Stalin via the MKVD, the predecessor of the KGB. Stalin knew the only way he could disarm America was with a stupid, but politically correct sounding idea. That was the beginning of the “rules of engagement” war we suffer with today.
We ended World War II haunted by the fact it was fought after “The war to end all wars,” World War I. Dare we ever think of ending war for all time? We should, as the bloodiest war of our history could have been avoided with a two billion Dollar bond issue to buy the four million slaves legally owned by southern planters. The cotton gin made slavery less necessary, as the cotton gin could do exponentially more work than the human hand. There is no reason positive social change cannot be negotiated rather than killed for. It is all in the art of the deal!
Today we are fighting a new enemy with a 1394 year-old battle plan written in 622 AD by an illiterate man dictating it to scribes seeking a best seller. They never dared imagine it would account for over a billion copies!
The plan is very simple: Sell the idea the faithful should marry cousins and genetically “dumb-down” future generations to carry out the insane ideas in the Qur’an. Incorporate severe rules, laws and punishments to enforce the ideas through terror. Fear works every time, as most people do not resist and those that do can be killed to eliminate resistance.
The perfect place for this was the Arabian peninsula, as it was 1,000 years ahead of every culture on the planet in science, math, astronomy, biology, medicine, cartography, philosophy and on through the list of intellectual endeavors, but one thing was missing: Publication of ideas, advances and accomplishments. The Arabs were intellectually crippled by secrecy. Nonetheless, they made amazing advances due to their wealth and free time for such enterprise.
The first Islamic war on the world to advance Islam met great resistance in the two prongs of Spain and the Adriatic countries. They were beaten back only by superior numbers and over-extension of military operations they could not support or direct. Thus, they lay fallow for 1,000 years. They have been in waiting for a millennia, and, like the locust, their time has come as they have refined war and found a western weakness predicted in the 19th century by Pierre François Verhulst, who appears to have correctly predicted the human population would go into decline. It is happening in Japan and Europe where many Middle Easterners have been imported as workers. In America the white population is no longer growing as quickly as the non-white populations.
Time has validated their strategy and everything we have done has fed their plan. George W. Bush took out the one man holding the Arabian Peninsula in check, but he would have been gone soon. “Global warming” and “climate change” prevented us from developing the proven technology of “fracking” to drown the world oil markets and defang the Saudis sponsoring much of Islam’s expansion, but the “greens” wage war on carbon combustion energy that is now empowering the Muslim dream.
The James Lovelock “Gaia Hypothesis,” taken to its logical conclusion, tells us it is the destiny of man to burn fossilized carbon to restore CO2 to the atmosphere. Green plants are desperate for carbon and waste 80% of all our fresh water gleaning what carbon they can from the air. It is at an all-time low in Earth history, but 42% of the plant mass so they must have it. CO2 would have to increase by a factor of 2500 to be considered significant by sincere atmospheric science. Water is our most serious problem, but there are engineering solutions.
The new Islamic war on the world is fossil fuel fired and very sophisticated using “infidel” technology, without central authority. The war General is the Qur’an and the plan is simple: Invade the infidel walking into his country, unarmed, non-threatening. Isolate, do not assimilate, obtain autonomy, commit terrorism, prey on liberalism and other weak-minded ideas. In due course win. So far they have made great advances, infecting every nation with Islam, a religion not of peace, but conquest and it is all in the Qur’an.
Islam means this to be the last world war. Seers claim the New Testament and Nostradamus predict victory for Islam, but they also saw the end of the in 2000 and the end of the Mayan calendar in 2012. The elements of this crisis have been: Europe in need of workers and America with a closet Muslim President who is trying to use the situation to his advantage without realizing he is putting his own at risk. If Islam defeats America his life expectancy would be to the next Friday as Muslims only do beheadings on Fridays. It is amazing that a man who always thinks he is the smartest person in the room could have such little appreciation of the fact that we are in World War III.
