Why western secularism is ineffective against jihadi suicide bombers

Pat Buchanan has the story:

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- “What apparently happened was that the Iraqi forces just showed no will to fight. … We can give them training, we can give them equipment; we obviously can’t give them the will to fight.”

Thus did Defense Secretary Ash Carter identify the root cause of the rout of the Iraqi army in Ramadi.

Disgusted U.S. military officers say the 1,000 ISIS fighters who overran Ramadi were outnumbered by the defenders 10 to 1.

Why did the Iraqi army run? And what motivated the fighters of ISIS to attack a city whose defenders so vastly outnumbered them?

According to battle reports, the assault began when dozens of captured U.S. armored vehicles and trucks, laden with explosives, were driven by ISIS volunteers to blast huge holes in the defenders’ lines.

Why do all the martyrs seem to be on their side? And why is it our side that, all too often, shows “no will to fight”?

Iraqis are not cowards. From 1980 to 1988, their fathers died in the scores of thousands defending their country against Iran. But if Iraqis would die for dictator Saddam Hussein, why does today’s Iraqi army seem reluctant to fight for the democratic Haider al-Abadi?

And the story of Iraq is the story of Syria.

Four years into that civil-sectarian war, the al-Qaida Nusra Front has carved out a sector in Idlib, as have the Islamic State terrorists in Raqqa. Bashar Assad’s army, though bleeding, is still fighting.

And the Free Syrian Army we backed? Defunct. Some fought, but others defected to the jihadis, fled or sold their weapons.

In Yemen, the Houthi rebels came down from the north to seize Sanaa, drive the president into exile, occupy Aden, and capture huge stockpiles of American weapons. The U.S.-backed army crumbled.

Again, why do these rebels seem willing to fight for what we see as antiquated beliefs, but all too often our friends do not fight?

Perhaps the answer is found in Thomas Babington Macaulay: “And how can man die better than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his fathers, and the temples of his gods?”

Tribe and faith. Those are the causes for which Middle Eastern men will fight. Sunni and Shiite fundamentalists will die for the faith. Persians and Arabs will fight to defend their lands, as will Kurds and Turks.

But who among the tribes of the Middle East will fight and die for the secular American values of democracy, diversity, pluralism, sexual freedom and marriage equality?

“Expel the Crusaders from our lands!” — there is a cause to die for.

No society can function if it is based upon licentiousness, debauchery, and the militant opposition to any form of values. (See Why modern liberals are 100% wrong about everything.)

The admins of 1389 Blog are in no position to fix or repair any western society directly. All we can do is to work on fixing ourselves, and to show you, the reader, how others have done the same. That is why we blog so often about Orthodox Christianity, and that is where you will find the real weapons against the jihad.

Shrub should have ended the war as Old Harry ended WW2 in the Pacific. Invading Dar ul-Islam without destroying their faith is a fool’s errand, wasting all the blood and treasure invested.

Muslims believe that they are doing God’s work and will, serving him by slaughtering us.
They believe that they are earning ready admission into Allah’s celestial bordello where they will have perpetual priapism to enjoy perpetual virgins who grow new hymens after every use. They believe that if they sit at home, they risk Hellfire.

Sunni or Shi’ia, they are all our enemies, neither friends nor allies. We lose no matter which side wins the interneccine contest for suzeraignity.

Go to the internet archive and download “The Book Of Jihad”. Put children and pets in a safe place, set aside all spill, choke and fire hazards and begin reading it.

Search for and download “The Quranic Concept of War:. Begin reading on page 58, continuing through page 60. Re-read page 60 until it finally sinks in. While they believe, they will not be defeated short of extermination.
