Welcome back to Balladeer’s Blog, the only site that equally criticizes both Liberals and Conservatives. There was another beheading video released by the favorite people of American Liberals – Muslim religious fanatics. The fanatics claim they beheaded David Haines a British AID WORKER and said they did it as a warning to America’s allies about being dragged into allegedly “unwinnable wars”.
The expression “unwinnable wars” needs put in perspective. In modern warfare a victorious nation shows restraint and does not bombard an entire nation into submission like was done to Germany in World War Two for instance.
That restraint means that when the conventional war is won there is a sufficiently effective enemy network still at large in the defeated nations. The existence of such networks – often aided by forces outside the defeated country – means that any victorious nation needs to be prepared to maintain forces in the defeated nation for literally two decades AT LEAST.
That will not happen because the civilized world’s enemies (Muslim fanatics at present) know that as long as they can maintain ANY level of hostile activity they can count on the spineless and self-aggrandizing political left in the Western Democracies to do politically what they themselves cannot do militarily – force a premature withdrawal of the victorious forces.
American Liberals are the biggest offenders on that score – especially the nauseatingly self-congratulatory 1960s generation of American Liberals who use every conflict as an excuse to pathetically try to relive their youthful protests of the Vietnam War. Those pompous fools always ignore the fact that America and the other Western Democracies are now facing AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT TYPE OF FOE and AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SITUATION.
So this is apparently where we in the civilized world stand: we have barbaric external foes opposed to any form of freedom and built-in political parties (the Democratic Party in America, Labour in the U.K., etc) in every free nation who are determined to NEVER let their own countries win a war against those foes. In fact, those political parties think they can woo “the Muslim vote” while somehow retaining the freedoms that Islam is opposed to.
Uh. Yeah. That strategy worked well enough in Lebanon decades ago, didn’t it? Oh, that’s right – it DIDN’T work! The Muslims constantly won concessions, making their support at the ballot box contingent upon more and more of those concessions to their religion and concessions to ANY religion are never a good thing.
