The Idiocy of Christopher Hitchens

In Slate today Christopher Hitchens has this ridiculous article urging the US to continue to fight the civil war for the Shiites in Iraq. In fact, he points out that those who urge the US to leave and let the Muslims kill each other couldn't be more wrong.. Mr Hitchens has ' .... met a few very hard-line right-wingers who say: So what? If one lot of Islamists wants to slaughter another, who cares? It's very important to repudiate this kind of "thinking." Religious warfare is the worst thing that can happen to any society, and it now has the potential to spread to societies that are not directly involved. For the most part, official U.S. policy in Iraq has been sound in this respect, always working for a compromise and recently losing American lives to rescue the moderate Shiite leadership from a murder plot hatched by a messianic Shiite militia.'

Let me set Mr. Hitchens straight. Islam is the enemy. It doesn't matter what shit sect they are. Second, it is insane to waste a single infidel on the Muslims. For Mr. Hitchens, American soldiers don't seem to have much value in his foolish 'idealism' that infidels can make a difference in the sick Muslim world.

Mr. Hitchens, is perhaps too clever
for our own good.
In applying the sharp knife of
intellectual reason to the corpus-
mundanus of Islam, he has perhaps
to it. We also overthrew the Taliban, which was slaughtering theHazara Shiite minority in Afghanistan.) ," well gee whizz, I almost shit ma pants laughing!
What TV does he watch, must be al BBC.

The Taliban are still killing Brits
in Afghanistan, and they aint gone
nowhere.
As for his mention of US and Britain rolling up their sleeves and socking it to those naughty old Serbs and Croats, in Bosnia, well I spat ma Croissant straight across the room.It stuck to the image on ma Google -box, of escaped witless War Criminals, cuban-lover Clinton,
shifty eyed Gen. Wes Clerk, and the
rest of the euro-gang, "Lord" Owen,
and Paddy Pantsdown.

I seem to remember some of their
actions, for instance, supporting
Croatia's Franjo Tudjman and his
forces--a senior KLA commander
apparently among them--who drove
300,000 Serbs from their homes in the Krajina, bombarding and murdering them as they fled, under the
supervision of the US Ambassador to
Croatia, Peter Galbraith, with US
personnel offering Tudjman's
cleansers targeting advice and
appropriate matériel.
I won't comment on the woeful results
of US and Euro interference in
Srebrenica, or Kosovo.
Someone will tell me next, that
Litvinenko was poisoned by Vlad Putin with a $10 million dollar dose of Polonium, when $50 of any number of concoctions would have sufficed. Anyone would think he had been bumped off by his mafia style isotope smugglers.
Naaah.

Then we have the future United
Mudjahadeen Front, relaxing on the
doorstep of Free Europe, as we twits build missile defenses against what Iran may throw at us.
Don't worry folks, about Iran
party-pooping, the guys next door are already ready to drop in with their own brand of body-poppin Rap.
At the pointy end of their
Kalashnikovs.

I hope ex soldier Lordy Ashdown and his pals are not in charge when the party gets started.
They just can't dance straight after juicing on their crack-pipes!

sorry about the double post, this pc is akin to a combine harvester.

Mr. Hitchens, is perhaps too clever for our own good.
In applying the sharp knife of intellectual reason to the corpus- mundanus of Islam, he has perhaps dazzled himself with the brilliance of the edge of his blade.
Such fine anatomical division cuts no mustard in Islam.
It is a sick beast with many heads, and bound and tied as it is to a fantastical glorious past, it cannot be revived by any amount of Western blood transfusions. Nor should it be. They will not send a thankyou note, only more body-bags. Should ever the beast be given fresh blood or a new head, we may witness a Frankenstein monster of immeasurable proportions.
I agree with Sobieski on that part, no amount of infidel blood will suffice, and it is perhaps as well to allow nature to take it's course.

This much of Hitchen's observations is certain,
"However, the self-generated Islamic civil war does have significance in the wider cultural struggle. All over the non-Muslim world, we hear incessant demands that those who believe in the literal truth of the Quran be granted "respect." We are supposed to watch what we say about Islam, lest by any chance we be considered "offensive." A fair number of authors and academics in the West now have to live under police protection or endure prosecution in the courts for not observing this taboo with sufficient care. A stupid term—Islamophobia—has been put into circulation to try and suggest that a foul prejudice lurks behind any misgivings about Islam's infallible "message." "

This is about as strong a criticism of the floundering of Islam, that the Western media-ochracy dare attempt.
It is certainly far and beyond what oil-junky Bushhed or Bliar dare repeat to their mid-east dealers.

Chris goes on "This mounting ghastliness is a bit more worthy of condemnation, surely, than a few Danish cartoons or a false rumor about a profaned copy of the Quran in Guantanamo. The civilized world—yes I do mean to say that—should find its own voice and state firmly to Muslim leaders and citizens that respect is something to be earned and not demanded with menace. A short way of phrasing this would be to say, "See how the Muslims respect each other!" "
Yeah, right on man!
Let's go and tell them poor confused folks that we care about them, but hey, please stop upsetting us, I mean it's sooo upsetting having to cope with all that war and stuff.

When Mr. Hitchens says,
"But no true secularist or even Christian has been involved in anything like the torching of a mosque. (The last time that such a thing did happen on any scale—in Bosnia—the United States and Britain intervened militarily to put a stop to it. We also overthrew the Taliban, which was slaughtering the Hazara Shiite minority in Afghanistan.) ,"

I would say that Hitchens is a disappointment except for the fact that I never trusted his so-called conversion in the first place. He's still a bleeding-heart at heart while our men and women do the bleeding. What next? Go into Darfur? Oh, that's right, The New Republic already is calling for that!

John Sobieski said...

Exactly Jason. You can't have it both ways. Islam is the enemy - we must save the Muslims! That is why CH and those other bleeding heart 'conservatives' aren't really conservatives at all. It's no problem for CH to throw our beautiful men and women into that hellhole in their pointless 'light unto the mohammadans' project. It's will fail and I won't forget.

I too never bought into his conversion and he proves it time and again.

Mark said...

It is said that Christopher Hitchens was once a paid-up member of the communist party! He seems to have made many conversions in his life. So, as Jason and John have already said: How can he be trusted? His brother, Peter Hitchens seems to speak far more sense. Indeed, he usually has his finger right on the pulse.

Never trust an ex-commie!
