The Sleepwalkers


Their enemy told the Sleepwalkers, in escalating words and deeds across decades, that the endgame was to convert and kill them all. They heard these promises only as faint susurrations saying he simply wanted to be left alone with his "peaceful" god. He offered them death by fire and decapitation and they were lulled and responded with "What is wrong with peace, love and understanding?"

This bankrupt mantra or one of its infinite variations was repeated and repeated from multiple sources without and within the mass of the sleepwalkers until many actually began to believe its soothing promise and drift back into their trance of "if only..." and "What can we give them to make them leave us alone?" It was, after all, a drugged sleep.

Meanwhile, the enemy's preparations for the sacrifice of one of the Sleepwalkers' cities continued with only minimal disruption and delay. At home, a quisling leadership elected on "hope and change" did all it could to give the enemy hope that it could change the nation into a nation enslaved with shariah from coast to coast, and yet remained strangely invulnerable to patriots' efforts at replacement or blunt removal. Instead of watchmen alerted at home, all eyes were trained abroad, Europe or the middle-east, since few Sleepwalkers could muster the courage to look about them. All believed that the sacrifice would happen, but most could not bear to contemplate it even as a few traitors actively looked forward to it as final proof of the corruption of the nation that had nurtured in them the freedom to despise it.

The enemy's preparations for the sacrifice of one of the Sleepwalkers' cities continued with only minimal disruption and delay.

To aid in this they worked actively to dissolve whatever border security was left.

The instruments of war that would be used to kill the city were either already hidden on the Sleepwalkers' shores or stored within one of the surviving nations hostile to the Sleepwalkers' existence awaiting transhipment to the target.

The Sleepwalkers' enemies' programs to purchase or manufacture other weapons of mass destruction continued around the globe at an ever faster pace, hidden behind a screen of the usual international commissions and a bodyguard of fresh denials heaped on the mountain of yesterday's lies.

The Sleepwalkers' enemies' dispersed cells of suicidal agents continued to thrive within our cities, protected and sheltered by their relatives and fellow travelers that the Sleepwalkers had graciously assumed to be "moderate," even loyal. They moved among us, clad in their false histories, secure in the knowledge that our own institutionalized rules of decency decreed that having the appearance of a suspect group was the surest protection against being investigated as an enemy.

The Sleepwalkers' enemies' efforts to recruit those among them that hated them increased as his chief organizing tool, his "religion," was welcomed into the Sleepwalkers' prisons, and allowed to flourish by those assigned to administer the prisons as a means of keeping those prisons quiet. And it did, as any place which men undertake the serious study and planning of wholesale death becomes quiet.

Outside of those prisons the enemies recruitment and organizational centers were draped in the vestments of "places of worship" and allowed to thrive. Many were even funded by the Sleepwalkers' own government. In all it was a nightmare in which many rolled in the long, long night before the light of an incinerated city with all the men and women and children had been converted to human torches and crisp statues of ash dissolving to dust in a dawn rain. The Sleepwalkers did not know the name of the nightmare's city but they would learn it in that dawn.

All these things they knew. All these things they saw. They did not awaken the Sleepwalkers. They would only awaken later, in the final hour. And they would awaken into nightmare.

One of the passages from Lawrence of Arabia's "Seven Pillars of Wisdom", which was about the British campaign in the Middle East in WWI, has haunted me since I read the book as a kid (in the late 1950s):

"All men dream . . . but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible."

I have always known that Evil, walking among us, never closes its eyes.

That's a very nice photo of Washington DC.

Maybe you deserve it but I had nothing to do with it's creation or continuance. I have spoken against it far and wide for more years than I care to admit only to be ignored and scorned. I have lived against it in mostly silence, doing my small part to not nourish it.

There are people here, many of them - perhaps even a majority, that are ignorant of the meaning of the word freedom and some even loathe the very word. Through ignorance or intent they are trying to cage or kill all of us under the guise of benevolence.

They attack you with their words and actions just as though they were gun or knife. Either you defend yourself as you see fit or you become another of their victims. The gov't can not and will not protect you nor should it, but neither should it facilitate those that will harm you. If it does then it should be defended against too.

A great culling is approaching, right vs wrong, and though it will be disastrous to all right will prevail and wrong will be subdued temporarily again, and the cycle will have repeated as it has many times.

"Clad in their false histories . . . " I had a beer with two Saudi Arabian exchange students the same year I read Age of Faith by Durant. Bottom Line: Islam functions because it's racist and predatory. Yet I have close friends and relatives who think I'm crazed and intolerant for point those things out. The Long, Long Night . . .

Actually, I agree with Ghostsniper ...

It is war.
