Nice: Have We Had Enough?

As I write, the death toll in Nice is between 77 and 80 depending on which source you use. We don't have the age breakdown as yet, but surely there will be many children. I just watched French President Francois Hollande address the nation. It was a bunch of empty rhetoric. Here at home, it is reported that President Obama and DHS director Jeh Johnson have been briefed. Wonderful. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton is calling for an "intelligence surge" as if the CIA has been on a 6-month vacation.

As I now regularly write, where is the next target? Will it be Marseille? Will it be Berlin? Possibly Chicago? Within a couple of weeks, we will know the answer.

It is time for the West to say, "Enough is enough".

First of all, let's drop this American government nonsense calling it "violent extremism". Even calling it "radical Islam" is too politically correct.

It is now time for the US, NATO and our Arab allies (the only ones I can confidently list are Egypt, Jordan and Iraq) to put the overwhelming number of soldiers on the ground in Iraq, Syria and Libya and wipe out the ISIS fighters both on the ground and from the air. Exterminate them like the vermin they are. Obama wants to close Gitmo. We need more Gitmos. As for Bashar Assad, the brutal president of Syria, overthrowing him is not a priority.

Then we (the West) must deal with those ISIS fighters, recruits, and sympathizers who are in Europe, the US, Australia and Canada.  They must be identified and either prosecuted if possible, deported or put into Gitmos. No, I am not calling for US Muslims to be interned as was done with Japanese and Japanese-Americans on the West Coast after Pearl Harbor. I am talking about targeting the radicals, the subversives, those who want to do us harm. This can be done in conformance with our laws and Constitution. I have never called for punishing innocent people. We don't do pogroms in this country and places of worship should not be attacked.

It is also time to close our doors. We can start with the Syrian refugees. We cannot vet them. We cannot even keep tabs on them when they arrive and are resettled by the various charities. In addition, Our visa policies must be changed. As things stand now, a Tunisian Muslim with a French passport doesn't need to apply for a visa. We need to able to scrutinize every last person who applies for a visa to come to the US-and everybody should have to have a visa. Other countries require it, so can we. Let other countries reciprocate against us if they don't like it. If I have to get a visa to go back to Germany, so be it.

Western civilization is in a war whether our feckless leaders know it or not. French people are dying on the streets of their own country. Americans are also dying on our own streets-in San Bernardino, New York City, Orlando and other places. As long as we continue to allow Muslims to flood into our countries, the body counts will rise.

In addition, the entire Muslim population needs to understand that if they subscribe to sharia law, they are not welcome here. If they are working, even peacefully, to advance a vision of an Islamic America in the future, they are not welcome here. We also need a government that will investigate organizations like CAIR, a subversive organization and shut it down. The same goes for ISNA, ICNA, MAS, MPAC and several others. I fully sympathize with peaceful Muslims who have no desire to live under sharia law here, have no designs of making Islam dominant in the US, and wish us no harm.  However, we cannot silence ourselves and regulate our language for fear of offending them. Besides, I don't see armies of Western Muslims going to Syria and  Iraq to fight against ISIS.

And let's stop the crap about profiling. We know who the terrorists are. We know what their motives are. We know the ideology that is driving them.

We must also acknowledge that far too many mosques in the West are radical breeding grounds. Saudi money has funded radical imams and radical teaching in many mosques in the US and the West. Saudi money has also funded the establishment of Middle East studies centers in our universities, staffed with leftist, anti-Israel, anti-West radicals. This must also stop. Our next president needs to have a heart-to-heart talk with the Saudis.

We are back to 1939-or in the case of the US, 1941. We are at war. Back then we had leaders like Churchill and Roosevelt. Today, we have Barack Obama, David Cameron Teresa May, Angela Merkel, Justin Trudeau,and Francois Hollande. It is a recipe for defeat. The West desperately needs new political leadership.

I hope voters will think very carefully about this in November.

Nice words. No pun intended.

Now what do they mean, practically?

You think the Iraqi army has been capable of dealing a knock-out blow anytime and just been withholding its iron fist because it didn't seem like a priority? Or are you saying that NATO troops could have come in anytime and had a net positive result? You deny favoring extra-constitutional measures, but you are awfully vague on what measures you DO support.

If you have a sure-fire way that the authorities could have identified this guy before he blew himself and a lot of other people up... by all means, let's hear it.

I think you're trying to have your cake and eat it too, and your rhetoric will not diminish the presence of Daesh one whit.

Hitler wasn't overthrown in a day, and the Normandy landings didn't prevent the massacre in Lidice.

Gary,

I agree with you. Most important is that Trump will stop the endless migration of Syrians and Muslims, in general, without serious vetting. Newt Gingrich wants to expel Muslims in the U.S. who want to believe in Sharia and not the Constitution.

Hillary has stated that she will import one million Muslims in her first four years in office.

These facts alone should be the reason not to vote for 'crooked" Hillary

A word about the horror in Nice, our thoughts and prayers are with the relatives and friends who lost love ones.

We need shock and awe on the battlefield. and zero tolerance and zero Muslim immigration at home. Sorry, but this is about preventing more Americans (and Europeans) from being slaughtered like cattle on our own soil.

The Hitler analogy is N/A. WW !! only lasted 6 years. This has gone on way too long and it is time to stop it.

As for the killer in France, he was known to police though as a petty criminal. They have enough of those too.

Ah, round up all the petty criminals and we're sure to get all the terrorists. I mean terrorists are never people with advanced degrees and no criminal record who work at regular jobs and nobody ever expected this.

Shock and awe is a weasel word for lots of action without stopping to think about the coordinates.
