Rageh Omaar on Why the West Should Fear the Taliban and al-Qaeda's Hold on Pakistan

THE TELEGRAPH: Stronghold of both the Taliban and al-Qaeda, the wild and lawless tribal border region between Pakistan and Afghanistan forms the crucial battleground in the war on terror. Rageh Omaar reports from the front line.

”Over the past two years, I have noticed that there is such a hatred of anything to do with the West throughout much of the tribal areas that the region has changed dramatically…

…Pakistan represents the first realistic prospect for a jihadist movement to capture a nation-state, or at the very least to control large parts of it. It would, in effect, mean that militants would have something approaching a mini-state within the country where the central government's power and influence would be non-existent, and from which they could plan and launch attacks beyond its borders. And Pakistan is not just any nation-state at threat from militant groups, but one that has nuclear weapons, a large population and economic resources; one that borders a vulnerable failed state in Afghanistan where tens of thousands of Nato forces are stationed; and one that also has as its neighbours two emerging economic superpowers, China and India. What is more, Pakistan has a long coastline open to the most economically important stretch of waterway in the world, the Gulf, from which hundreds of tankers supply oil-hungry economies. It is a nightmare scenario from which no country is immune. None of us will escape the consequences of a situation where large parts of Pakistan are politically, militarily and economically controlled by jihadists."
– Rageh Omaar


The stark mountainous northern regions of Pakistan's tribal areas are among the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Yet as Barack Obama's newly appointed special envoy to the region, the famously tough and straight-talking diplomat Richard Holbrooke, has said, Pakistan is the country that scares President Obama and keeps him awake at night more than any other.

On my assignments to Pakistan in the past two years, it has been hard to believe the country's nightmare could get any worse. It has been heartbreaking to see this nation of more than 170 million people convulsed by political violence that its government seems increasingly incapable of halting. From the assassination of Benazir Bhutto to the almost weekly suicide bomb attacks that go unnoticed by the outside world, every strike by the militants is more audacious than the previous one.

The ambush of the Sri Lankan cricketers in Lahore at the beginning of this month came at the same time that the four main Taliban groups in Pakistan announced their decision to unite their forces in a concerted military campaign against Nato and government forces in neighbouring Afghanistan. Cricket, as many have observed, is one of the few cultural and sporting pastimes in which all Pakistanis, regardless of class, regional, ethnic or sectarian traditions, can unite around. It is a sport that both the religiously conservative and the Westernised elite enjoy. The aim of the militant attack on Lahore was to undermine this; to make the point that nothing is immune from political violence and that the Taliban's vision for Pakistan is an absolutist one with no room for anything Western, or anything that isn't derived from their literal interpretation of Islam.

More and more of Pakistan is slipping beyond the control of the government. As the Lahore attack showed, even the centres of major cities are vulnerable. Nowhere is the absence of the rule of law more evident than the north-west of Pakistan. The region is officially known as the Federally Administered Tribal Areas, a clunky but accurate description of this vast expanse of nearly 11,000 square miles, home to an estimated seven million people whose first loyalty is not to Pakistan but to their tribal community. As its name indicates, this region is nominally administered by the Pakistani government but it has been autonomous and unconquered for centuries. >>> By Rageh Omaar | Thursday, March 19, 2009

Pakistan has only one reason for existence: JIHAD.. The informed of the world know that the Taliban was created by Zul al-Haq, and sustained thereafter by Pakistan's leaders. The hypocrite West turns a blind eye to the goings-on of the Pakistan military, namely the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) that is responsible for kashmiri and pakistani TERRORISTS free range with the aim of destablising India and swallowing it to be part of Dar Ul Islam. The Mumbai attack had the self-defeating hypocrisy West lecture the Indian govt about over-reacing and not blaming the Pakis . Not a single negative word on the world's most dangerous failed state..

After Afghanistan, Pakistan, it is BRITAIN that exports Terrorism. The isles is so overwhelmed with islamic extremism that its "ally" (for how long?) the United States is now spying on those appeasing, bankrupt, broken, cowardly, useless pommeys. The CIA spends 40% of its effort to prevent a terrorist attack on the US , plots that are being hatched in Britain.

Tony Blair turned Britain into a Safe Haven for All Terrorists. His NuLabour welcomed them heartily and gave them the
FREEDOM to operate in Britain by setting up their bases of operations. It is these bases that have produced dozens of international terrorist attacks in recent years. Read Melanie Philipps book LONDONISTAN where she wrote: "UK-based terrorists have carried out operations in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Kenya, Tanzania, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Israel, Morocco, Russia, Spain and the U.S." Gordon Brown and his leftards have already demonstrated they are the COWARDS of Europe - their accomplishment: throwing British culture, dignity and security down the islamic trash chute with dangerous traitorous dhimmi-perfect Milibrand leading the British genocide.

It’s the British Pakistani community, now numbering over 800,000, that concerns the United States most. About half of these “Brit-Pakis,” as they’re called, travel to and from Pakistan—now one of the world’s most dangerous nations. It’s not at all inconceivable for some of these travelers to disappear into Pakistani terror camps, resurface months later in London as trained terrorists, and then hop on transatlantic flights for America—only needing a British passport, due to the visa waiver agreement between the U.S. and Britain. Britain's MI5 believes there are some 4,000 Pakis eager for talibanisation of the West.

Britain has a shit record in that london-bron OMAR SHEIKH BEHEADED journalist DANIEL PEARL in Pakistan. In 2003, two british students blew themselves up inside a Tel Aviv bar. And islam convert Richard Reid (shoe-bomber) turned out to be one of the masterminds hehind the Bali attack, and the man who rammed a truck bomb into police barracks in Kashmir all came from Britain. It now has the shameful reputation of being one of the biggest exporters of Islamic terror.

No wonder the United States has intensified its effort to spy on Britain. FBI Director Robert Mueller said the primary terrorist threat America faces comes from Pakistan and Afghanistan. Besides these terrorist hubs, Mueller also emphasised " we must consider extremists from visa-waiver countries, who are merely an e-ticket away from the US"

The attack on Sri Lanka's cricket team in Pakistan that no attacker was killed/caught considering the following facts:

* Sri Lankan team had the highest security possible in Pakistan with heavy police escort.

* The firing continued for 15 minutes !! Can you bleive this? 15 minutes fighting against the "highest" security of Pakistan and the terrorists still manage to get away?

Dosen't take a genius to work out that this is possible because the attackers had the support from Paki army/police to escape. Don't forget, the Sri Lanka's cricket team comprised mainly of non muslims. Get it?

It is the Western desire to collaborate with their would-be persecutors thus endangering the whole world with the barbarian's mentality and putting us at risk and demise which is the second danger we must face. The persecution of Geert Wilders is the trumpet that alerts the nations of the world that are still sane and willing to fight.
Is it not the govts of the West that today forbid their citizens from expressing fear of the quranic verses which demand sharia law, acceptance of islamic jihad and the mass murder of non muslims labelling such concerns of self-despair and fear as "hate speech" thus empowering the barbarians that the West recognise the protection of the islamic ideology to be more important than the safety and security of their citizens. Like bubonic plague, the rats that has infested and infected the West to civilisational suicide with the populace rolling over in apathy and acquiescence will attempt to bring the East and Far East, relatively safe from the islamic plague, into conflict. It is heartening to know that Israel stands ready to fight while Russia and China stands ready to obliterate every single muslim, if necessary. Past and recent history proves that. And so will Germany - the teutonic race that had democracy foisted on them.

As for Pakistan - the false state born of British malice, spite and revenge against Hindu India for wanting independence will disintegrate.

Thank you so much for this thoughtful comment. What you say is very true; unfortunately, however, it is very depressing, especially so since Britain is now a hotbed of Islamic extremism, and an exporter of same.

Whoever would have thought, fifty years ago, that such would be the case?

Mark, your country is governed by ineducable retards akin to inmates that escaped from the lunatic asylum. Consider this:

Anjem Choudary, British based terrorist, encourages UK Muslims to fund terrorism and hide evidence of terror activities in their homes. Yet Briti dhimmi officials do nothing about him. The UK daily mail report MI5 and the Metropolitan Police’s counter-terrorism command is examining his latest speech. Police are already believed to be examining whether he broke the law in calling for money to be collected for islamic fighters. For crying out loud!

And Yousaf Bashir , part of a gang that hurled abuse at 200 members of the Royal Anglian Regiment as they marched through Luton ( Pakistan territory) after a second tour of duty in Iraq. But after the semi-detached home Bashir shares with his parents was attacked the slime was given immediate police protection!!
Two police officers have been stationed in a marked car outside the property since the attacks and a CCTV camera has also been installed. The potential mass murderer has demonstrated he hates Britain , but is calling on it to protect him, and Dhimmi Britain answers his call. Never mind the astronomical cost in protecting the scourge of the earth which will be paid for with the blood and sacrifice of native Brits.

BUT British police, always retreating in the face of muslim demonstrators carrying placards calling for DEATH and HIJAB and JIHAD show their bravery and courage by ordering native Brit
Driver to remove England flag from his car because it’s ‘racist toward immigrants.’

And you, the Brit, with the Power of your Vote do yourself in.

I have been thinking about your statement that the Far East is almost completely free of Muslims, or "Muslimfree" as you put it.

But what about Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei? They are considered to be part of the Far East, and they are almost completely Muslim. China has its problems with Islam, too. The Philippines and Thailand have growing problems with Islam. The latter, Thailand, is considering allowing Shari'ah law in three of its provinces! So the Thai government is caving in, too.

I would appreciate your comments, ea.

Dear Mark,

Malaysia, Indonesia (largest muslim population next to India) are in South East Asia. Thailand is part of ASEAN - Association of South East Asian Nations. Thailand''s muslims are mainly in the south bordering Malaysia that harbours and instigates terrorist attacks against the Buddhist nation. Malaysia is well known for its terrorist ties - its fourth prime minister Mahathir provided instant Permanent Residence with privileges to Jemayaah Ismailiyah Abu Bakar Bashir who fled Indonesia when Suharto was about to arrest him. It is Bashir's aim and object to turn the whole region - Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines into one Islamic Caliphate. Mahathir not only welcomed known terrorist Hambali with instant PR but gave him government contracts!!!! Hambali was later caught in Thailand by US Intelligence and isnow in Gitmo where the "messiah" will soon release him - hopefully into US territory where he can join the duffer Obama's terrorist friends and play fireworks and cause carnage. Malaysia's own PhD slime , - Azhar or something was shot dead by Indonesian authorities for his role in the Bali, Marriot Hotel bombings - and his stink corpse was given "holy warrior" burial and honours. Talk about sickos! The other Malaysian mass murderer Nordin something is still on the run.! Do a quick search and the many investigative reports on Malaysia's association, support of terrorists - only muslims, please - will educate you.

On the Philippines, Do a search on Asiaweek, Newseek re the notorious Abu Sayaf, the MINLF, MORO and you will see Malaysia's hand in it. Go back as far as 1985. I had data on this, but lost to virus attack couple years back.

Thailand restrains its military strength because it needs oil from the Mid-East. But Thailand has a military record of brutality which is yet to be unleashed should it go to war. Myanmaar, another Buddhist country, is an example of what happens to the muslims in their midst when provoked . Cambodia and even tiny Laos is of like mind.Strangely, despite the propaganda that muslims are all equal before their allah, it is a well known fact that muslim majority Malaysia prefers "white" skin Bosnians and Palis ( raising funds for those oh so poor Palis tortured by the oh so cruel Israelis) while denying refugee status to the dark skinned Myanmaar muslim Rohingyas . They prefer the light skinned Pakistanis to the dark skinned Bangladeshis - given instant PR to Indonesians who are the largest migrant workers there - and all are muslims, allah's best of men??? It is not we non muslims who tout that - it is the muslims themselves who drum that farce into those gullible to believe them. Taqiyyah in its many forms.

China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia to mention a few know about islam and how to contain it. We know that islam without violence is like making an omelette without eggs. We know that Islam seeks to conform the nations of the world to Islamic law and precepts, called "Islamization" despite the many euphemisms to mask its tenets of violence towards all non muslims. There are many videos available on this, as well as those on Beheading with the muslims in satanic ecstatic revelry at the screams of pain while chanting allah hu akbar.

We know how to deal with muslims who get out of line. Our jails are not the luxury pads of Israel (yes, yes, Palis are given 5-star hotel treatment there) or the senile West. Sure, we need OIL - but we will not sell culture, traditions, people, country to fulfill their Caliphate dream. More than any country in the far East, China has ably demonstrated how it deals with its demand for Oil with islamic countries like Sudan.

But with the price of oil plummetting, and a NEW SOURCE soon to fufill world's needs - ISRAEL has discovered three massive gas reservoirs 80 kilometers off the Haifa coast, at the Tamar prospect. The Tamar-1 well, located in approximately 5,500 feet of water, was drilled to a total depth of 16,076 feet. The thickness and quality of the reservoirs found were greater than anticipated at the location. An exhilarated Yitzhak Tshuva, owner of the Delek Group Ltd, one of the owners of the well, called the discovery “one of the biggest in the world,” promising that the find would present a historic land mark in the economic independence of Israel. Fulfilling a biblical prophecy.

Anti semites, please join your beloved muslims to the cave and the 7th century. Same goes for the leftist turds and liberal loonies along with the sick minds that helms Amnesty International who maintain deadly silence as 500 muslim girls a year in Britain suffer gential mutilation!!!! . Not one arrest. Not one incarceration. Not one word of condemnation! We do not allow that. Muslim live in our country, he abides by our laws. Failure means we make him stateless or if caught working as an enemy of the country, he languishes and wishes for death in one of our dungeons.

Many fail to reaalise that Radical Islam is born of existential fear. Reason why islamists display a sense of extreme urgency. They are not conservative muslims as islamists reject muslim society as it exists as corrupt and decadent - OBL and the Taliban demonstrate that with their brand of theocracy. Both are revolutionaries who want to create a kind of totalitarian theocracy that orders every detail of human life of which muslims will be the first victims as seen in the Swat Valley, Pakistan.

The West refuse to acknowledge that these are not throwbacks to the past, but products of modern education. These are the followers of Sayyid Qutb (1906-1966), father of the modern Islamist movement . Islamists feel they have nothing to lose for the fear of cultural extinction surpasses the fear of physical death. Hence Hamas and Hizbollah taunts : " We embrace death while you Love Life - you lose." It is a desperate gamble for they know that islamic life is dying BUT far more slowly than the senile civilisation of the West.

We in the Far East cling to our 5000 year culture and wisdom. For 500 years we became stagnant. Now, perhaps, its time for us to take over. We will .

Mark, the order of terminology with regard to territories will change. It always has.

It is not important to us what term is used by the West. What is important is that Buddhism is the mainstay of our ethos - and far from being benign and pacifist - Cambodia and Thailand, two Buddhist countries now dispute with army presence on both sides, over a 900 year old Hindu temple! This should send a loud message to the mass murderers.
We out here are willing to fight.

Good article Mark.
I am glad to see the comments from that most accurate and cogent commentator, "e.a."

Anyone who wants to see how the British jihad is going, only has to lift the lid on the trash-cans that many British towns are becoming.
Come to downtown Bury-Park, Luton or similar areas in a dozen towns, where you will find the efforts of the Jihadists are doing just fine, totally unhindered by police or government.
The golden sword of jihad is busy claiming lives and driving crime in these towns, but let us not forget that there are many ordinary Brits who are fed up with the Marxist Labour Party who queue up to hand Britain over into the grasping claws of Sharia.
Take a look at the way Lutonians stood up to the band of bearded racist Muslims who cat-called to the returning Anglian Regiment back from two years in Afghanistan.
We are not happy with what the Socialistas are doing to Britain.

Pakistan is an ungovernable country. Period. It has a schizoid population. 90% suffer from split personality, and that’s a fact. Its geographical composition, historical background, religious system, economic discrimination, social and cultural structures, political characterization points to future balkanization. Contrary to what muslims tell non muslims, the caste system is very much practised. Indian muslims who opted for Pakistan are not accepted and are derogatorily called "Mohajairs"

For the sake of world peace that the hypocrite West proclaims every time, dissolve Pakistan, if you can, if you dare. Why is the West – America, Britain, Europe tolerating the intolerant, disgraced ISI and their trained military commandos responsible for the many incursions into the Line of Control, several attacks against India , and now declaring war against Afghanistan? If the West has its NATO forces in Afghanistan to fight against the Taliban, then why are there no sanctions against Pakistan that created the Taliban and works with them against Balochistan, Afghanistan and India? Why is the West sacrificing their brave men and women by not only allowing, but encouraging and funding terrorist Pakistan by refusing Balochistan and Pakhtunkhawa (North West Frontier Province (N.W.F.P} get their right of self-determination ? The Taliban reconstituted in Pakistani sanctuaries, allied with a kindred Pakistani movement (Tehrik-e-Taliban), and is now seizing control of swaths of the N.W.F.P. To the west, the Taliban, in concert with Baloch terrorists, are asserting control over the northern part of Balochistan Province. Losing control of these areas means losing US/NATO supply routes but attempts to fight the terrorists makes the military seem even more obeisant to the US, which of course strengthens terrorism. US leaders are turning to supply routes across Central Asia. It is only now that America makes overtures to India with stupid, Nehruvian secularist Stalinists India falling for American lies. India will experience American treachery for failing to learn what happened to Serbia, America’s ally in two World Wars. America never won any war after WWII people. And it has the shit record of causing the killing fields in peaceful Cambodia.
So it’s a perverse delight to see Americans living in tents today. We call it collective karma.

It is a well known fact (go read Stratfor people) NATO and ISAF Jet-fighters should not only protect Balochs and Pakhtuns from Pakistani air attacks but also stop Pakistani Military infiltration into Afghanistan to kill the innocent civilians & bleed NATO/Isaf/Afghan forces in Afghanistan? The commander of NATO's International Security Assistance Force, Gen David McKiernan, condemned each attack. "Once again the Taliban have displayed that they have no respect for Afghan citizens or any desire to see a peaceful future in Afghanistan”
Pakistan’s ISI is supplying the Taliban with funding, military supplies and strategic planning, as Taliban gears up to confront International Coalition in Afghanistan.
The NY Times carried a report couple days back saying ISI operatives provide money, military supplies and strategic planning guidance to Taliban commanders, with proof of the ties coming from electronic surveillance and trusted informants. So what? It’s been the case before and after 9/11. To add insult to injury, Pakistan has released many al-Qaeda and Taliban terrorists, including one responsible for beheading American journalist, Daniel Pearl. It gets even better. The ISI now trains women to become terrorists. Question: when the female terrorist dies, does she turn into a nymphomaniac with 72 men shagging her incessantly to whet her insatiable sexual appetite?

From its inception in 1947, Pakistan was predisposed to military rule. And this was encouraged by Britain and America. Pakistan’s duplicity continued for years and as confessed by Henry Kissinger who made a trip to India to apologise (NOTE: after more than 30 years) for America’s filthy role in supplying weapons to Pakistan and withholding of same , and encouraging China to attack India on another front, in all three wars? Nothing has changed. For America, Treachery remains the Name of the Game – the victims be damned!


When the British left in 1947 they did not want India to have anything, not even India’s own gold mines in the Kolar district. They flooded the gold mines and destroyed it like they made the Indians destroy the 100 fighter aircraft and flying bombers – to save their beloved muslim Pakistanis, to whom they are beholden to this day.
Pakistan learnt well from Britain known for its complicity in many unsavoury political deals. It has ended up as the hub of global terrorism, as has Britain. Be careful who you sleep with. Your country ends up with a “stan”


Yet, even after 9/11 and the American assault on Sept 21, 2001 that purged that nation of Taliban rule – bringing brief relief to the beleagured, bewildered Afghans, especially its women, despite the many satellite photos and India’s intelligence handed over to America, America preferred and continued to fund Mushie the scum of the earth (never mind he destroyed the semblance of democracy in Pakistan by ousting Nawaz Shariff) believing the Taqiyyah of Pakistanis which was heavenly music to the vile Americans. Vile, because they knew, but preferred alliance with the devil . And these are the scumbags touting Peace at every turn! Satan is pleased, wot? Accordingly, the FBI and other US intelligence agencies had been focusing on the LeT as the next big thrthreat to US security even before the Nov 26-29, 2008, Mumbai terror attacks.

America will destroy Pakistan as emphasized by Andrew Bacevich, Kevin Phillips, Pat Buchanan and Ted Galen Carpenter from the right, George Monbiot, Noam Chomsky and Chalmers Johnson from the left and veteran national security professionals like Flynt and Hillary Mann Leverett. Out here we wait to see the outcome of Chief Justice Chaudhary now reinstated and what happens to Tricky Mushie and Tricky Zardari.

Today, America’s Teleprompter president (so he won’t have to make eye contact with the American people, stupid) who promised his voters Change, ended the phrase “Global War on Terror” with ‘Overseas Contingency Operation.” This is the Change that the muslim in mind, body, and heart, the Zero promised his countrymen that under no circumstances would he offend his Islamofascist friends. Out here we see Barry Soetoro aka Obama surrendering to al-Qaida, Hamas, China, Venezuela and any other world power or organization that hates America and can shoot back. He is already making overtures to “moderate” Taliban. Pigs can fly and Barry is out to prove it. The Russians have already slapped the occupant in the WH across the face as the slime fraud gave them all they demanded. . Every terrorist, every world leader witnessed and noted what happened. A North Korean rocket might hit the US soon. If so, Americans can thank Carter and Clinton and themselves for choosing death over life when they elected their Messiah who will ask of them to remain calm while he hurries to the bunker.

Americans do love lies.
If that were not so, they would not follow the lies of their political leaders with such assiduous relish and put rats in office. Americans wanted Change and Hope. The DemoRats will give them Catastrophe, Fear and Despair and Utter Poverty. However, there remains little evidence that the American people are preparing themselves for the catastrophes soon to befall them and who continue to believe the pronouncements of their corrupt leaders,
Political leaders come and go. The country does not belong to them. It belongs to you, the native citizen. Be careful or your masters America, as there are many Judas' in the midst carrying their 30 pieces of silver they have sold you for as slaves, while betraying you with a kiss. 1776 anyone?

America gets to reap the whirlwind when its cranial-rectal inversion past president, the thoroughly disgusting and ugly Carter that passes off as a human being and is a blight on the rest of decent humanity supplied Stingers and aided the Mujahideen in the Afghan-Russia war. Russia was doing the world a favour killing off jihadists. America was hell bent on saving them. Now they can enjoy jihadists in their midst .


It's a terrorist supermarket out there in Porkiland. Since 2003, nearly 14,000 have died from terrorist violence in Pakistan, most of them in the tribal territories along the Afghan border. Some 47 percent of the dead were terrorists (Taliban and al Qaeda), while 39 percent were civilians (most killed by terrorists). The remaining 14 percent of the dead were security personnel. That’s about 2,000 soldiers and police. Pakistan's police and armed personnel are always edgy in their uniforms not knowing when a bomb or a bullet will get them. Imagine the stress level.


It sucks when the West beat the drums of "we are bringing democracy" and tying the hands, feet of the world's largest democracy - India with iron chains, iron balls, and whatever else it would take to ensure that India does not emerge as a power.

As I said, time for the decaying, declining, dying West to retire and let us in the East/Far East who remained stagnant to take over.
Read the Tang Dynasty and the Meiji Dynasty, and you'll have an understanding what I am referring to.

India is an old continuing civilisation, much like China is.
Both these countries have the people, the brains, the wisdom.

Read Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" appropriated from the Upanishads. The West appropriates knowledge from the Far East shamelessly and passes it off as their own. Sucks!

Thank you for this hard-hitting comment. Very interesting, if perhaps a tad cynical.

I said from the beginning that it was a mistake to try and bring democracy to the Middle East. Islam and democracy are immiscible. Please read my essay. Fussing about trying to bring democracy to a part of the world to which it is totally and utterly unsuited, whilst all the while losing our own democracy at home! It just didn't make any sense. But this is what you get when the people who are empowered to lead us understand neither Islam in particular nor history in general.

The "cranial-rectal inversion" (I love this description!) otherwise known as Carter was a disaster of a president. But he is not the only one. By far not. Bush was pretty bad, too; and I have little or no faith in Obama.

It saddens me to say this, but it would appear that the West is in the throes of death. Rigor mortis could well be about to set in. I hope not. But things are not looking good.

Maybe it is, as you say, time for the East/Far East to take over. Maybe you people would do a far better job of things. One thing is that I do not believe that you'd be so soft and accommodating to your aggressors. That is exactly what the West has been.

Appeasement and softness are the characteristics of the West today. The West has forgotten what it was all about, it appears. And it has certainly lost its balls and will to survive. Sad. Very sad!

Mark,

On your comment re Thailand, be informed that Thailand was never colonised while its surrounding neighbours fell like ten pins to the Brits, the French, the Dutch, Americans.

*****Appeasement and softness are the characteristics of the West today.********

Weakness invites aggression. Any and all attempts to appease radical Islam, including Islamist terrorists and Islamist terrorist-sponsoring nations, are bound to fail. Appeasement of radical Islam will not prevent war and terrorism; instead, it will lead to more war and more terrorism.

The grandson of Mao Mao terrorist executed on Churchill’’s orders (principal reason why his statue was returned to Britain and Brown slapped, never mind how the reader interprets it) and his appeasement to the “moderate” Talibans will not work like it does with the Russians. Pakistan’s top Taliban commander has said he will attack Washington DC very soon.

Counter-terrorism experts believe that Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and other Islamist terrorist groups, including, possibly, Hizbollah--are planning Mumbai-style assaults on American cities.

The threat from North Korea --which is cooperating closely with Iran--is much more serious than the Obama administration is admitting.
N. Korea is capable of attacking Japan and South Korea--and U.S. forces in S. Korea. It is not too simplistic to figure that should either the Taliban act first for N Korea to its Taepodong-2 missile and American cities will experience such death and devastation that it will “strike terror in every beating American heart”. The ideology of Stalinists and Islamists is the same – to strike and destroy so the nation nor its people will recover sufficiently.

Hizbollah has been invited for “talks” by the retards of Whitehall while Geert Wilders is persecuted for trying to save Europe from islamisation. This from a Britain that once had an Empire. Today, it allows the “coddled, pampered and protected” muslim population in its midst where three of the four muslim MPs, three of the four peers, and 38 organisations including the Muslim Council of Britain and the Muslim Association of Britain who do not see a need to educte their co-religionists in basics of co-existence nor understand, let alone accept the culture and traditions of Britain to meet their demands i.e. the Surrender of Britain to Islamisation. We do not blame the Islamists in your midst. We blame you, the people of Britain, for allowing such barbarous men to spout treasonus, vitriolic invective . Are you that hopeless, helpless, useless, that you do not rise to defend your country which is the inheritance you give to your future generations?

We watch and we learn and we know what we will do with muslims.
The philosophy out here is: Take no prisoners.
War is about destroying the opposing military, pillaging the civilian population so it can not assist that military and government, displacing that population, destroying that government's infrastructure to operate, and fear.
"win and hold" strategy as adopted by West we see defeats the purpose of war.

The chopsticks nations know how to defeat muslim nations along with their cult of death which has a myriad of weaknesses which the West refuses to acknowledge, but which we will use to the maxim.
The Israelis will get to them first, however. Bet on that.

Mind you, besides Japan which was an Empire that defeated the Russian Navy in 1905, no other nation from the East/Far East colonised any nation. Vietnam has a 1000 year old border war with China - protect, but smile and give each other face. After the American withdrawal the SEA nations did not fall like dominoes
to Vietnam like the fear the Americans instilled in them. It got rid of Pol Pot and saved Cambodians that America created.

I will get back to you later on other comments.

I am in TOTAL agreement.

Counter-terrorism experts believe that Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and other Islamist terrorist groups, including, possibly, Hizbollah--are planning Mumbai-style assaults on American cities.

That doesn't surprise me one little bit. In fact, I would be surprised if they weren't planning such attacks.

The threat from North Korea --which is cooperating closely with Iran--is much more serious than the Obama administration is admitting.

I believe this to be so, too.

N. Korea is capable of attacking Japan and South Korea--and U.S. forces in S. Korea. It is not too simplistic to figure that should either the Taliban act first for N Korea to its Taepodong-2 missile and American cities will experience such death and devastation that it will “strike terror in every beating American heart”.

What a nightmare scenario you paint. But probably accurate nevertheless.

Hizbollah has been invited for “talks” by the retards of Whitehall while Geert Wilders is persecuted for trying to save Europe from islamisation. This from a Britain that once had an Empire. Today, it allows the “coddled, pampered and protected” muslim population in its midst where three of the four muslim MPs, three of the four peers, and 38 organisations including the Muslim Council of Britain and the Muslim Association of Britain who do not see a need to educte their co-religionists in basics of co-existence nor understand, let alone accept the culture and traditions of Britain to meet their demands i.e. the Surrender of Britain to Islamisation.

Are you that hopeless, helpless, useless, that you do not rise to defend your country which is the inheritance you give to your future generations?

I couldn't agree with you more. I have been on about this for a long time now. Why do we allow such groups to exist? Why do we allow these people to get away with treason? Why do we insist on bending and bowing and scraping in this hideous manner? Etc. We are singing from the same hymn sheet, ea.

We watch and we learn and we know what we will do with muslims.

You are very wise. But then the East is known for its wisdom, isn't it?

The philosophy out here is: Take no prisoners.
War is about destroying the opposing military, pillaging the civilian population so it can not assist that military and government, displacing that population, destroying that government's infrastructure to operate, and fear.


Good philosophy! War is indeed about destroying the enemy. If one isn't prepared to do that, then one shouldn't get involved in the first place.

The chopsticks nations know how to defeat muslim nations along with their cult of death which has a myriad of weaknesses which the West refuses to acknowledge, but which we will use to the maxim.

I'm sure that the "chopstick nations" do. I think the West needs to come and take some lessons!

The Israelis will get to them first, however. Bet on that.

Yes, I'm sure they will. The Israelis don't play about. I think it's only a matter of time.

Excellent article Mark. Must have taken you hours to write - time I can ill afford. If you read islamic history what is very apparent is that the muslims salami slice the indigenous population and country and then take over. All the civilisations destroyed by islam has this pattern.

Britain's NuLabour's betrayal from within by encouraging muslim migration is to ensure vote banks. Mass immigration has been going on for decades but showed a spectacular increase under Blair's and now Brown's Labour regime. The spike was so powerful that it is tempting to speculate whether the authorities had deliberately set out to dismantle their own nation. That's how it looked to me then. Luton is already little Paki with Bradford a close second. It was so even during my student days way back in the second term of Blair.
Unless the natives rise and revolt you're done in. So far there is no inclination to do so thus sovereignity of the nation is handed over to the Islamic supremacists that NuLabour nutured to take over.
What I see now is a complete lack of WILL in the British people. Now I understand a loony law prevents the native Brit from defending himself besides being the country that has one surveillance camera for every four persons. Orwell’s 1984 comes to mind.
There is hope yet. This economic crisis will bring on official WWIII sooner than you think. Visit Gerald Celente, CEO of Trends Research Institute at www.trendsresearch.com and check out. Then make action plans. No time to lose. Britain is BANKRUPT, really. Brown is printing money which will soon be worthless.

A quick note on your comment re Bush vs Carter-Clinton.

****Bush was pretty bad, too*****

IMO, the Republicans are the lesser evil both to America and the world in general.

It was Carter and Clinton the demopaths with their "1994 Peace
Deal" with N.Korea .

Under the terms of the "agreed framework," N Korea was given all sorts of bribes – more than $5 billion worth of oil, two nuclear reactors and lots of high technology. In return, they took the bribes and kept building nukes. This wasn't difficult, inasmuch as the 1994 deal permitted the N Koreans to evade weapons inspectors for the next five years. Never mind allies Japan and South Korea, actual allies who were angry and mortified. But then Bernard Lewis say America is a Treacherous ally and a Harmless Enemy?

And how did the leftists and liberals of America take the news? The only reason Kim Jong-Il is testing nukes is because Bush called him evil. "When you call Kim Jong-II axis of evil or a tyrant, you know, he just goes crazy."

In a nutshell one can conclude that the skunk Carter and the hippie Clinton “solution” be regarded as one of the most foolish in world history.
And nothing is more pleasing and satisfying than for DemoRats to celebrate in the Decline and Death of America. Mr. Teleprompter today will see to that. That’s why he chose Hillary who will implement her War hater, Flower child, hippie Military Hater husband who sufficiently weakened the military making America open to attacks from NKorea, Russia, China and now the Taliban.

Glad you enjoyed it, ea.

Yes, they're pretty clever at it, too, aren't they? Everyone gets taken in by them eventually. Few seem to learn the dangers they face. I hope that you people from the East will be wiser (as we have already mentioned).

Britain's NuLabour's betrayal from within by encouraging muslim migration is to ensure vote banks. Mass immigration has been going on for decades but showed a spectacular increase under Blair's and now Brown's Labour regime. The spike was so powerful that it is tempting to speculate whether the authorities had deliberately set out to dismantle their own nation. That's how it looked to me then.

It's hard to think otherwise. Only a fool would have allowed so many immigrants into the country in such a short time. Especially a group of people who have no interest in integrating, and who openly say they intend to take us over. NuLabour has been criminal, I think.

Luton is already little Paki with Bradford a close second. It was so even during my student days way back in the second term of Blair.

Yes, there are parts of the country which have been turned into ghettos. I feel sorry for the indigenous population living in those places. They must feel very alienated.

Unless the natives rise and revolt you're done in. So far there is no inclination to do so thus sovereignity of the nation is handed over to the Islamic supremacists that NuLabour nutured to take over.

There's very little appetite for revolt, it seems to me. The government is not going to do anything about the problem. That goes for this government, and I am sorry to say that I believe that the Conservatives have shown little appetite for the tough measures it would take to solve the problem, too. So, as you say, it looks as if the UK is done for, along with many other places in the West. I didn't call my book 'The Dawning of a New Dark Age' for nothing, you know! :-)

What I see now is a complete lack of WILL in the British people. Now I understand a loony law prevents the native Brit from defending himself besides being the country that has one surveillance camera for every four persons. Orwell’s 1984 comes to mind.

What you see is absolutely spot on. There is no will – neither on the part of the people nor on the part of the politicians.

There is hope yet. This economic crisis will bring on official WWIII sooner than you think. Visit Gerald Celente, CEO of Trends Research Institute at www.trendsresearch.com and check out. Then make action plans. No time to lose.

WWIII could well be here sooner than we all realize. It's not looking good right now. Thanks for the link. I'll check it out.

Britain is BANKRUPT, really. Brown is printing money which will soon be worthless.

Yes, I see that we are on the slippery slope. Printing money is a very foolish thing to do. It led to hyperinflation in Germany, as we all know. It is incredible that we can't seem to learn the lessons of history.

A quick note on your comment re Bush vs Carter-Clinton.

****Bush was pretty bad, too*****

Agreed. Though I became very disappointed in Bush. I had liked him a lot in the beginning. But he soon started disappointing me.

In the last election, the Republicans didn't stand a chance with the candidates they put up.

North Korea is a whole different subject. I fear that I would never get to bed if I started on that subject! :-)

Mark, found this:

"North Korea: Clinton Knew...and 'Kicked the Can' Anyway by Trent Telenko

Excerpts:


……….the “Agreed Framework” of Oct. 21, 1994, was anything other than a cynical exercise in appeasement by the Clinton Administration.

"The Clinton Administration knew at the time (1994) from NK defectors that the North Koreans had no intention of honoring the 1994 Nuclear Agreement, according to Insight Magazine

, The U.S. House of Representatives Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare (TFTUW) issued a report in August 1994 that said of the Agreed Framework, Washington is buying time while maintaining the charade that the DPRK [North Korea] does not have nuclear weapons. Consequently, the United States and its allies have settled into the 'do-nothing-for-now' mode, merely postponing the hour of reckoning.

The TFTUW report quotes "high-level North Korean defectors," saying that the current leadership in North Korea will not give up nuclear weapons no matter how many agreements it enters into with the United States. One defector, Kang Myong-To, was quoted in the report as saying, "North Korea's nuclear development is not intended as a bargaining chip as seen by the Western world. ... [Pyongyang] sees nuclear development as the only means to maintain Kim Jong-il's regime." Bodansky tells Insight, "Nuclear weapons are the ultimate insurance policy of the ruling elite" in North Korea.

A 1990 KGB report to the Soviet Central Committee asserted, based on “available data,” that North Korea had “completed” its “first nuclear device” and in 1994, prior to the agreement, the director of the CIA said that the agency believed North Korea had already produced one to two bombs. Current U.S. intelligence assessments are that North Korea has probably produced at least one nuclear weapon.

In October 2002, after years of mounting evidence of North Korean violations, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State James Kelly confronted N Korea with evidence that it was conducting a clandestine bomb-building program based on a process of enriching uranium. NKorea had begun this program only months after the signing of the 1994 Agreed Framework — and, note, seven years before George Bush called anybody evil. NKorea first denied the truth, then admitted it — and then unilaterally “nullified” the 1994 deal..."

Jimmy Carter’s Rotten Deal produces the predictable bad fruit and today, Japan, with the N.Korean dagger aimed at its heart, is told to deal with it alone by the US. Leftists and Liberals Must Surely Rejoice. Do not laugh too loud and too soon. YYou lot will be vaporized too.
Leftist, liberal Clinton has sold missile guidance technology that would allow China to efficiently deliver these warheads. Clinton went out of his way to deliver this technology to China. Loral Space and Electronic and Hughes Electronic, illegally gave space expertise to China that significantly advanced Beijing's ballistic-missile programs to lengthen the range of its missiles and sharpen their accuracy.
A top Chinese general already has boasted they could pulverize Los Angeles. With this new missile guidance system, they will be able to annihilate the countries within the Southeast Asia region, including Japan, its hated enemy. Along with millions of Americans. So leftists and liberals will not have the privilege to dance. .

Losing bin Laden is a story—and one hell of a lesson—that the reader will never forget.

AMERICA'S ENEMIES SMELL BLOOD AND IT'S TYPE 'O'

NKorea has shown America what it really and truly is: A Paper Tiger. The Zero has effectively capitulated to Kim Jong II.

Rising China and resurgent Russia committed an act of unprecedented aggression with the electronic penetration of America's electrical grid and planting of computer programs designed to disrupt it in times of war.
The US has been outsmarted, plain and simple.

The assault on the grid should focus attention on the threat of a sea-launched electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack--detonation of a nuclear warhead high above the center of the U.S.--in order to wipe out electronics and communication systems and plunge the country into darkness for decades. Not for nothing are Iran and N Korea collaborating on development of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles; not for nothing have the partners in nuclear/missile crime successfully test-fired missiles from cargo ships.


The Zero now claims that Islam shaped America for the better. AFTER he revealed his True Self with the most disgraceful act of any president in American history - Bowing Deeply to Wahhabism - the most evil cult on earth, a cult of satanic hate which the Saudi king spends billions promoting around the world. He has submitted to Evil and expects Americans to do same. He has announced his true belief. Patriotic Americans, you are doomed. Is it too late?

Pls Note: The Leftist Media kept away from reporting the news.

Talibanisation of America is well underway. Iran is using the Mexican drug cartels to smuggle Hizbollah onto American soil. 200 area already in the US. The National Review Online reports, “The public love-fest between Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez is just the tip of a sinister iceberg" Say hello to Suicide strikes across the Continent. The Mahdi has arrived .

The proud dumbed down American dunghead who voted for the Mahdi will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is.
