25 Now on the same night the Lord said to him, “Take your father’s bull and a second bull seven years old, and pull down the altar of Baal which belongs to your father, and cut down the Asherah that is beside it; 26 and build an altar to the Lord your God on the top of this stronghold in an orderly manner, and take a second bull and offer a burnt offering with the wood of the Asherah which you shall cut down.” 27 Then Gideon took ten men of his servants and did as the Lord had spoken to him; and because he was too afraid of his father’s household and the men of the city to do it by day, he did it by night.
28 When the men of the city arose early in the morning, behold, the altar of Baal was torn down, and the Asherah which was beside it was cut down, and the second bull was offered on the altar which had been built. 29 They said to one another, “Who did this thing?” And when they searched about and inquired, they said, “Gideon the son of Joash did this thing.” 30 Then the men of the city said to Joash, “Bring out your son, that he may die, for he has torn down the altar of Baal, and indeed, he has cut down the Asherah which was beside it.” 31 But Joash said to all who stood against him, “Will you contend for Baal, or will you deliver him? Whoever will plead for him shall be put to death by morning. If Baal is a god, let him contend for himself, because someone has torn down his altar.”
One bit of good news (other than Charlie Sheen playing host to HIV); the incomparable Ol' Remus has resurrected the Woodpile Report.
You're missing the bullseye.
Killing the jihadists and other Muslims, to them, is a reward and guarantees their entry to Paradise.
The root of our problem is in the Koran and Sunna and in the fear engendered in Muslims if they are not being absolutely faithful to the precepts therein. Which means we must be converted to Islam, subjugated, or murdered.
To destroy those roots requires dismantling those texts as false and having the Muslims believe they've been misled.
Small chance of succeeding, but there is no other realistic path.
Read the K-RAN. Then read one or more of the excellent books available that explain just what this work of a madman/psychopath really is.
Then you will hopefully understand why this book and its followers must be burned up in a hellacious firestorm. And there is no reason to worry about collateral damage. If one wants to save civilization that is.
You are missing something. Several somethings, in fact. First of all, the destruction of Mecca and Medina would be absolute proof that the supposedly all-powerful Allah is incapable of protecting the holiest places of the One True Faith - or, at least, that he is greatly displeased with Muslims in general.
Secondly, one of the Five Pillars of Islam is hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca to walk in circles around a meteorite (among other similarly idolatrous rituals). Difficult to do, if said rock is spread as nanofine dust over thousands of square miles of desert and the building holding it is replaced by a hundred-metre-deep hole.
Further to the second point, IMHO the dropping of a B83 bomb on Barad-Dur ought to be delayed somewhat - to allow for the installation of a quarter-ton or so of cobalt in a shell around the workings. After all, the hajj becomes even more difficult if going there becomes lethal, or if going there guarantees your kids will have two heads.
(AFAIK the B83 is the largest in the US arsenal these days at 1.2MT. Big enough.)
I just heard on the radio today that the U.S. Air Force destroyed a convoy of thirty ISIS trucks that were carrying oil to sell.
The kicker: Just before the attack, other USAF aircraft dropped leaflets warning the drivers of what was coming, so they could get away and not get hurt. Then the trucks were destroyed.
No doubt that order came directly from the C-inC.
Question: Are we nuts?? Or is he?
Or worse: is Obama really a Muzzie, and playing war games with a wink and a nudge?
I've been saying for nearly a decade that Islam is a very brittle ideology tied to places like Mecca and Medina which, if they ceased to exist, would take Islam down with them.
Islam is a do this, don't do that ideology which, if you can prevent them from carrying out some of the compulsory Dos, would stop being a viable ideology.
Nuke Mecca and the Hajj, which is a compulsory Do, would cease to exist.
This would show Muslims that their god was a false god incapable of protecting his most important city.
