"Tell me what the strategy is and I'll tell you if it's working....."

CIA official: You said a program should be renewed. I'm asking is our strategy working?

Peter Quinn: What strategy?Tell me what the strategy is and I'll tell you if it's working. [Silence] See, that right there is the problem because they - they have a strategy. They're gathering right now in Raqqa by the tens of thousands, hidden in the civilian population, cleaning their weapons and they know exactly why they're there.

CIA official: Why is that?

Peter Quinn: They call it the end times. What do you think the be-headings are about? The crucifixions in Deir Hafer, the revival of slavery? Do you think they make this shit up? It's all in the book. Their fucking book. The only book they ever read - they read it all the time. They never stop. They're there for one reason and one reason only: to die for the Caliphate and usher in a world without infidels. That's their strategy and it's been that way since the seventh century. So do you really think that a few special forces teams are going to put a dent in that?

CIA official: Well what would you do?

Peter Quinn: Are you offering me a promotion?

CIA official: I'm offering you a hypothetical.

Peter Quinn: Two-hundred thousand American troops on the ground indefinitely to provide security and support for an equal number of doctors and elementary school teachers.
CIA official: Well that's not going to happen.

Peter Quinn: Then I better get back there.

CIA official: What else? What else would make a difference?

Peter Quinn: Hit reset.

CIA official: Meaning what?

Peter Quinn: Meaning pound Raqqa (ISIS’s stronghold) into a parking lot.

"That's not going to happen."

That, in less than a nutshell, is our defeat program. Turds in charge. I wish Trump were twice as batshit crazy; more like Patton than Patton himself.

The French ought to lace up their boots, snap the chinstraps on their helmets, and proceed to Tunisia, Libya, Syria and every other buttstania, and take charge of the countries entirely. None of this political BS of changing hearts. Oh, and the US could take a lesson from this, too.

The only scenario I see as an awakening moment would be after the islambos light a nuke in a major US city that creates several hundred thousand casualties. At that point the sleeping sheep will become brazen enough to start hanging the elected and unelected criminals in our midst.

"islambos light a nuke in a major US city"
"At that point the sleeping sheep will become brazen enough "

I doubt even that would do it. The West has lost its will to live, much less defend itself. Forty percent of the electorate, possible more, will still vote for Cankles in November. You can't wake up the walking dead.

That would certainly do it.At risk of repeating myself over time...once you put fear into the soccer moms of this nation and threaten their way of life, they would all be fighting each other for a chance to hit the nuke button.

I see an intersection between two concepts.

1. The collective responsibility has been murdered in the West. Leftoids of all types killed that, lest they be responsible for all the killing fields and camps and gulags and Lubyanka's of all the world.

Once upon a time, we firebombed Dresden and Tokyo, and nuked H&N. Every citizen of the Axis bore responsibility for WWII, and we were not squeamish about bringing the reckoning.

For far too long, the leftoids like vermin have bred among us, claiming their religion of utopia and new soviet men and beautiful perfect omelettes is a religion of peace. Since their goals are perfect and true, they bear no responsibility for the egg-breaking. In fact, the whole lot of the 20th century monsters are forgiven their sins, because their goals were perfect.

2. Every Islamic attack that is not answered by a disproportionate reprisal, is an Islamic victory. And the Islamics proceed from victory to victory. "Hah! One of ours killed 80+ of yours. We can keep this up all day long, and there will be more and more every day. Victory begets victories!"

The Islamic attacks will stop when the banlieus in Paris and Nice and Marseilles (and yes, Dearborn and Hamtrack) are pounded with so much artillery and overhead carpet bombing, that the Islamics will know for certain that every attack will diminish them greatly. When every mosque is specifically targeted to leave no stone standing, everything burnt to the ground, the ground salted and flooded with pork offal. And mounded with jagged metal scrap 10 feet high. Turned into a zone of evil pestilence for a hundred years.

Yes, they bear collective responsibility: men, women, children, grannies, all of them. And yes, there must come a reckoning.

We have three choices now: run away, give up, or fight. Two of those assure their victory. The last, there are no assurances.

John, I agree wholeheartedly. But what is the catalyst for the West to actually take the gloves completely off and do what needs done? I believe that to be that we collectively fear for our way of life. It is merely a nuisance to most of "us" now. Too many Americans blame recent local attacks on guns or our retribution for perceived past sins of oppression. All that ilk goes out the window when WE ALL FEAR FOR OUR WAY OF LIFE. I am armed whenever I can be, but still have a larger chance of engaging a local thug than any terrorist. The wake-up call will be when it hits home to a large population, hitting a large city with massive casualties. A modern day Pearl Harbor, not unlike 9/11, but larger in scale or in multiple places over a short period of time. A terrorism Tet Offensive within the United States. It does not need to take and occupy territory, it only needs to instill unshakable fear. Only then will the Sleeping Giant be awakened and he will do what is required. He will start by mounting a pale horse.

I looked and there was a pale green horse. Its rider was named Death, and Hell followed. Revelations 6:8

With every unanswered massacre, the trigger spring tightens.
There will be no "Cry havoc!"
The dogs of war release themselves.
I fucking can't wait.

There are no limits now.
I want to strangle beating hearts.
Saint Vlad will rise.
I fucking can't wait.

the jihadis themselves obviously don't care if they live or die.

you wanna displace those 72 virgin fantasies and get their attention, do what the israelis do. if some kid blows himself up at a bus stop in tel aviv, the bulldozers show up at his house the next day and turn it into a parking lot.

mom or wifie doesn't spend all her time giving celebratory interviews to sympathetic stringers from western media... she's too busy picking underwear, photographs and whatever remains of the good china outta the wreckage.

just sayin'.
