The self induced problems with the war on terror is the so called smart fellas with college degrees running it. These dumbfucks have no idea what they are doing, in no small part because they are fully invested in an unrealistic world view, a world view solely based on the indoctrination received during their college years leading them to believe there is political solution to conflicts with islam. Their solution is one of limited kinetic response, substituting firepower with a whole lot of social justice bullshit. They are fools of course ( the majority of non stem degrees whole purpose in life seem to be to produce fools and most stem degrees seemed to be wasted on dumbshit like looking for the next facebook or some shit)
The so called leaders of the West literally cannot imagine what motivates moslems. In part because they do not take their faith serious so they mistakenly believe moslems do not take islam serious… well that and the refuse to see the truth of islam in general. College kids belive in dumbshit like being part of the human race and a citizen of the world, hajjis are tribal as fuck, putting more stock in their kin and tribe then they do national boundaries. College fucksticks believe this sort of rubbish because they are blank slate-its thinkers ie hajjis are good little liberals deep down if only they have jobs, a clean environment and some feminism. Or some such bullshit
Then the SJW bullshit doesn’t work so what do they do? They double down on the stupid and come to overly rely limited military actions while at the same time committed to the failed ideas about winning hearts and minds…. convoluted I know but each plays together to create a cicrular cluster fuck
The problem with moslems is…. you guessed it, islam. Islam commands it’s followers to wage war against all believers until the whole world has submitted. Remember islam means submission. The koran allows for temporary peace treaties of 10 years during which time hajjis are supposed to retool for the next round of war. the koran tells hajjis unbelievers are to be given three choices, conversion, death or life as a slave/ second class citizen. islam is not only a religion but is also a political system and culture all rolled into one. The koran and haidiths tell moslems how to set up governments ie a theocracy. It ranks people in value, tells you how to walk into a bathroom and how to walk out of a bathrom…. Western leaders cannot and will not come to terms with the reality of islam. Our “leaders” are to well indoctrinated in the blank slate stupidity.
The islamic state is a sunni moslem affair, the areas they quickly took over where… sunni areas of iraq and syria. Why did they take over so quickly? The locals want a sunni state and helped them. The iraq as one nation idea is popular with Western governments and the iraqis at the top of the iraqi food chain. The typical iraqi grunt is a shai moslem, poor and uneducated. He does not want to die fighting IS for the wet dreams of corrupt leadership of the West and iraq. In short the typical shai grunt in the iraqi army doesn’t give a fuck about fighting to keep sunni’s in iraq and won’t risk his life. He doesn’t give a fuck about iraq as a nation, he doesn’t give a fuck what ameirca thinks is best for him. This is tribalism meets religious solidarity, pure an simple. UMC Western Whites cannot comprehend either and the idea larger States are better then smaller States keeps the West from coming up with a two state solution of some sort. Instead of dividing iraq in two, a sunni iraq and a shai iraq they would rather force both of them to live in the same nation…. something the typical hajji on the street does not value or want.
The islamic state is not the junior varsity team. I mean it is technically and statistically compared to the USA’s military but for damn sure not poorly armed, trained or equipped compared to the other militaries in their area of operations. It is basically a blend of al-qaeda vets and former sunni vets from the iraq military. Many trained and equipped by america. So yes they are well trained and well equipped compared to their enemies. They also have better leadership then the american military and of course more motivated then the local ground forces.
The islamic state’s leadership is motivated, believes in what it is doing, knows what it wants to accomplish and wants to win. You have to give them the edge in leadership as well as motivation.
If we pursed a purely military solution to IS in the Iraq/ Syria area of operations(as an example) we could have it wrapped up in weeks and months, not years. Pretty sure less then month once the stage was set
Nation building will always fail when you are dealing with savages such as moslems. I have spent to much of my life getting a 1st hand view of islam in action to think of them as anything more then savages to be eliminated. The typical jihadist is middle class for his area so jobs won’t change his mind. He knows the koran and the hadiths very well and understands islam calls for a ceaseless war with nonbelievers and that the only guarantee he has of heaven is dying in war. Its a very legalistic belief system keep a tally of your sins and righteous acts. Most moslems will do some time in hell to pay for their sins but not the men who die fighting non believers. If Westren leaders could understand just these two things they could deal with islam from a rational perceptive. Side note, the really sick shit in islam is in the haidiths which is a very long list of things mahomet said and did. Anything mahomet did is to be emulated by other moslems, Like cutting off heads and marrying 9 year old girls.
Westren leaders ties the hand of our militaries in an attempt to court the favor of Westren progressives and moslems. We slow down our operations during Ramadon but the hajjis do not return the favor, They use that 30 day break for R&R and to retool. Nor does slowing down the ops tempo gain you any warm fuzzys from the hajjis at large in your area of operations, but hippies eat that shit up because we did the same sort of thing when fighting other Christian White folks( or so they believe). Rules of engagement will keep you from killing a man planting an IED but can dictate you get involved when a hajji bitch slaps his old lady. These attempt to suck up to liberals at home and win the hearts and minds of the hajjis down range do neither. No one respects weakness and our rules of engagement make us weak.
We can defeat the islamic state in weeks and months, not years if we turn to a purely military solution. The military is not failing in the war on terror. The problem is we are not allowed to fight because our leaders do not know what they are doing. They want a political solution they can never achieve and keep the military from using its full might to bring about a military victory.
I am not saying we should take on the islamic state or any other group of hajjis. That is a different topic. Personally I think we should exterminate moslems but the point of this was to lay out a short case of why the West will never find success vs islam and hajjis.
