-1 X 10^9 : “The terrible ‘ifs’ accumulate”

Black Sea Waterways

From the brilliant The Three Conjectures by Richard Fernandez. published in 2010 concerning the Islamic bomb (if they got one) and not the Russian bombs— thousands and thousands. And our thousands and thousands too.  As my friend likes to remark, “Once one nuke gets used, these days — no matter how bad they may be —  become ‘the good old days.'”

Conjecture 3: The War on Terror is the ‘Golden Hour’ — the final chance. It is supremely ironic that the survival of the Islamic world should hinge on an American victory in the War on Terror, the last chance to prevent that terrible day in which all the decisions will have already been made for us. That effort really consists of two separate aspects: a campaign to destroy the locus of militant Islam and prevent their acquisition of WMDs; and an attempt to awaken the world to the urgency of the threat. While American arms have proven irresistible, much of Europe, as well as moderates in the Islamic world, remain blind to the danger and indeed increase it. Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammad recently “told an international conference of young Muslim leaders … (that) … Muslims must acquire skills and technology so they can create modern weapons and strike fear into the hearts of our enemies”. Fecklessness and gunpowder are a lethal combination. The terrible ifs accumulate.

    Maybe we are going to get, in no uncertain terms, the answer to the Fermi Paradox.

    So long, mom,
    I’m off to drop the bomb,
    So don’t wait up for me.
    But while you swelter
    Down there in your shelter,
    You can see me
    On your tv.

    While we’re attacking frontally,
    Watch brinkally and huntally,
    Describing contrapuntally
    The cities we have lost.
    No need for you to miss a minute
    Of the agonizing holocaust. (yeah!)

    Little johnny jones he was a you. S. Pilot,
    And no shrinking vi’let was he.
    He was mighty proud when world war three was declared,
    He wasn’t scared,
    No siree!

    And this is what he said on
    His way to armageddon:

    So long, mom,
    I’m off to drop the bomb,
    So don’t wait up for me.
    But though I may roam,
    I’ll come back to my home,
    Although it may be
    A pile of debris.

    Remember, mommy,
    I’m off to get a commie,
    So send me a salami,
    And try to smile somehow.
    I’ll look for you when the war is over,
    An hour and a half from now!

    The terrible awfulness has to happen in order to build the CCCP back better.
    The Great Resetters have spoken and they demand a ROI for all of the governments that they own.
    A 3000 mile glow in the dark charcoal birdbath is all part of the Fundamental Transformation.

    Remember the shites (Iran) actually want to bring about the end of the world so the twelve imam can come up from the well in hom and bring about utopia.

    If you understand Islam than you understand that this was always the fate of the West nuke or no nuke.

    The purpose of Islam is to either convert everyone to Islam, or to kill them or to make them slaves. This will happen, not might or could, this will happen.

    The opportunity too change or eliminate Islam passed decades ago. Maybe it was never possible and certainly not possible in a “woke” social construct.

    Islam will take over and dominate Europe. They will kill or enslave all the Europeans and they will do the same in the U.S., Canada and Australia. Sorry Charlie! That is the facts. They will do it with diseases that they bring into our country, with forest fires set in dry windy conditions, with knives in the subways, with poisons in the water and food. And they will do this relentlessly.

    It may take a couple of decades or longer but in the end you will be dead, your lineage will be converted or dead and no one will be looking back and your history erased. That is the future!

  • Virgil Caine July 19, 2022, 10:56 AM

    As soon as Islam is done serving the needs of the COMINTERN it will be history. Remember who created them in the “modern” age.
    CONUS may be nuked though it will be limited. Bio attack should be the wider concern. CCP wants/needs the lower 48 and CCP believes the U.S. is theirs and that we stole the land from their ancestors. That’s not what I believe. That’s what their defense minister stated in 2005. Nancy’s headed to Taiwan to open another front in the next act in the unfolding global war.

    All very nice, Richard Fernandez… Now who paid for you to attend the Kennedy School of Government as a reward for being the CIA’s eyes in the anti-Marcos Manila Underground back when? Because YOU sure as hell did not stump up the cash to study there and live it up in Belmont whilst doing so. Oh.. some ‘Foundation’? It is to laugh.

    Totally unconnectedly, Fernandez has made a nice living (including various Bankster and Political ‘Consultancies’ which he would write about from time to time in passing at PJ Media) as one of the Good Cops in the Clown World melodrama ever since.

    Muzzies can be a pain and a nuisance. But USGov / Ruling Elite is the greatest threat to world peace and order in this Year of Our Lord, 2022.

    It’s well past the point where I feel a lot happier about the Iranians getting their hands on nukes than Biden or General Lace Knickers Milley. There’s more (note I didn’t say infinite) sanity in the curriculum of the madrasahs of Qom than there is in the institutions which school and police our Western ‘Elites’ (stomach churns on this oxymoron).

      BINGO. Our true enemy? The parasitical class aka the oligarchical elite, WEF Globohomo, Deep State.

  • bwayne July 19, 2022, 1:42 PM

    drop neutron bombs on them. ALL of the muslims

    • ThisIsNotNutella July 19, 2022, 5:12 PM

      You’re a nice fella. Should try to get out more and see the world a bit first though.

    Wade through this when you get the chance, including the comments at the bottom.

    Can We Really Confront the Biggest Crime in Human History?

      The cockroach don’t care.

    • ThisIsNotNutella July 19, 2022, 5:25 PM

      In History? Biggest most humongous Crime? Six Gorillion Coronaviruses cruelly vaxxxxxedddd into oblivion by blue-eyed blond beasts? Mister say it ain’t so! Also there’s a Mx Greenblatt for you on Line 3. Zhe seems a trifle piqued about something or other.

      I must say, Crazy Naomi is increasingly good value and entertainment of late. I liked the footage of her with the AR-15.

      Some lies and Crazy Naomi bullshit in that article.

      Pfizer vaccine is manufactured and distributed by Pfizer in Europe and USA and Rest of the West. The vaccine was dreamed up by a European biotech company which partnered with Pfizer for manufacture and distribution at scale.

      Shanghai Fosun Pharma partnered with Pfizer for packaging, regulatory approval, and distribution IN CHINA. They didn’t invent the vax, didn’t pressure Whitey to get the vax and don’t manufacture any of it floating around in Whitey’s countries. The Pfizer vax you get down at your local Walgreens was made somewhere in Europe/USA (actually different parts of process happen in different plants) and never went near China and contains no Chinese IP.

      Interestingly, China has not been keen to inject her own people with mRNA vaccines developed elsewhere and is still developing her own. Read what you will into *that*.

      But let’s not all be totally retarded BoomerCucks, shall we? Chinkies not your besties m’kay. Doesn’t mean there’s evil Mao Suit Fu Manchu lurking in every packet of instant noodles.

      As always, look first closer to home for those you need to hang from lamp posts.

      • Anonymous July 20, 2022, 10:51 AM

        Ah but if you’re not Nutella, and you live in Hong Kong perhaps you’re the evil Mao Suit Fu Manchu the mastermind behind the Yellow Peril! Grin.

        None the less I have to agree with you and the greatest philosopher the West has ever produced, Pogo; “We have met the enemy and he is us”

        • ThisIsNotNutella July 20, 2022, 2:48 PM

          I’m more Hu Fung Dung than Fu Manchu. But in my dreams…

    • Terry July 19, 2022, 9:14 PM

      @ghost, Thank you for the link. Mind blowing what is going on right in front of us. Why people are so uninformed and carefree makes the Jews willingly boarding trains seem trite.

      Just this past Sunday my wife and I sat near an older couple at a breakfast joint who were boasting that they had just been “jabbed” for the fourth time. And they are complaining about being sickly all the time.

  • John A. Fleming July 19, 2022, 2:53 PM

    Pete at Western Rifle Shooters links to an article about how with the current instability around the world, including famine, there is a non-negligible chance that the newly-weaponized Taliban will be able to conquer a destabilizing Pakistan and seize their nukes and create a central Asia Islamic super-state. Great, just great. FJB!

    • ThisIsNotNutella July 19, 2022, 5:31 PM

      Any sane Nativist American would welcome such an outcome. Would keep the Russians, Indians (not your real friends, BoomerCucks, sorry.. but not.), Chinese, Iranians, Turks, Saudis, Apartheid State You-Know-Whos all busy for decades. Bliss. Could use the breathing space to rebuild your shattered society.

      That’s Glass Half Full Big Rock Candy Mountain View.

      Brutal Reality in that Scenario: Your Greatest Ally == Your True Rulers would eviscerate what’s left of your nation to preserve the City on a Hill Over There (not yours). It would be a Grift for the Ages.

      First take back your own country before worrying about shit elsewhere.

    • Dirk July 19, 2022, 5:44 PM

      John, read that article early this morning, well written, it’s clear to me, WWIII has little to do with Ukraine, But everything to do with the Middle East.

      While the Taliban is a possibility. Their is now a 100% chance that the Israel’s will have to curb stomp Iran. Iran announced they are now nuclear capable, which is not gonna fly with the Jews.

      When most countries tell you of their plans, its possible.

      When Iran tells the Jews they will nuke them, you can take that bold statement to the bank. No Israel can not and will not tolerated A nuclear armed Iran.

      Saudi Arabia and Iran are also enemies, Iran keeps docking with Arab oil. That’s a big Nono.

      Na WWIII will start i the Middle East, sooner rather then later.

      • ghostsniper July 20, 2022, 4:40 AM

        Dirk sed: “Na WWIII will start i the Middle East, sooner rather then later.”
        I’m prepping for the local version.

    Ghost, I’d you’re east of the Mississippi, you’re fucked. If the bomb doesn’t get you, your neighbors will.

    Islam has a terrible vulnerability among the world’s religions. Its foundational characters may not be portrayed nor written about by those who are not painstakingly accredited theologians, nor may they be represented in artistic works by word or likeness. For the faithful and the pilgrims, this leaves three Holy Sites venerated by Muslims: the Masjid al-Haram, including the Kaaba, in Mecca, as their holiest site; the Al-Masjid an-Nabawi in Medina, as second holiest site; and the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, in Jerusalem, as Islam’s third holiest site. In the event of a nuclear conflict, char the first two of these to glass in a way that will make the Haj lethal for the next 10,000 years or so.

    I figure Jeruaslem will be preserved to the best of their ability by the Israelis, who in the event of nuclear attack I suspect will annihilate the capitals and major cities of every Muslim state they can reach. Were I Hebrew, I would wish for no less. Live by / Die by

    P.S. I hate scientific notation, so unless you’re still on the Manhattan Project or need to calculate the width of the universe in planck lengths, cut it out! BTW, -1 X 10^9 = 1 billion, and yer welcome.
