The Real Mitt Romney, What the Liberal Media Won't Tell You

Just Some Real Facts About Mitt Romney That We Will Not Hear About From The Lame Stream Media


Mitt Romney: After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar, but never worked as an attorney.

As a venture-capitalist, Romney's first major business deal involved investing in a start-up office supply company with one store in Massachusetts that sold office supplies. That company, called Staples, now has over 2,000 stores and employs over 90,000 people.

Romney or his company Bain Capital (using what became known as the "Bain Way") would go on to perform the same kinds of business miracles again and again, with companies like Domino's, Sealy, Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot Supply, and many others.

Got your calculators handy? Let's recap.

Volunteer campaign worker for his dad's gubernatorial campaign 1 year.

Unpaid intern in Governor's office 8 years.

Mormon missionary in Paris 2 years.

Unpaid Bishop and state president for his church 10 years.

No salary as president of the Olympics 3 years.

No salary as MA governor 4 years.

That's a grand total of 28 years of unpaid service to his country, his community and his church. Why? Because that's the kind of man Mitt Romney is!

And in 2011 Mitt Romney gave over $4 million to charity, almost 19% of his income....Obama gave 1%

Joe Biden gave $300 or .0013%

This is real character vs....well you know what!

Romney may not be the best representative the Republicans could have selected ? At least I know what religion he is, and that he won't bow down to foreign powers, or squander my money on vacations or everyday blame Bush for all that is wrong and never once say I could have done a better job. I know he has the ability to turn this financial debacle that the "Spending President" has gotten us into. We didn't know that, when Obama said he'd give us change, he meant nickels and dimes, and he would get the big bucks. We won’t like all the things necessary to recover from this debt, but someone with Romney’s background can do it.

But, on the minus side, He never was a "Community Organizer", never took drugs or smoked pot. Never got drunk. Did not associate with Communists (Frank Marshall Davis) , Marxists (Attending Meetings), Socialists (Cornel West) . Nor did he attend a church for 20 years, whose pastor called for God to damn America.
$16 Trillion and growing
Please pass this on, Its vital Obama is defeated and with him will go Holder, and Clinton, and Napolitano, and so many others from Obama's socialist party.

Wisconsin Voters, if you want your property taxes raised to pay school teachers who are out demonstrating instead of teaching your children, then vote against Walker. However if you feel its time that teachers start to pay for some of their pensions, and benefits, and that teachers are paid well enough now, then stick with Walker. Its your choice on Tuesday, Vote for freedom from taxation, or vote for Socialism and continue to pay teachers pensions and healthcare benefits while you can barely pay your own bills. 

Refusing to Name the Enemy in the War on Terror

Something is terribly wrong when you can't say Islamic Extremist. When you can't say Muslim. How long till Muslims bring us another 9/11. Will we then be allowed to say Islamic Extremist? Probably not if the same assholes are running our country.

How U.S. Taxpayers Are Funding the Taliban

Huff Post World
May 30, 2012
Michael Hughes


The U.S. has been financing both sides of the war in Afghanistan since 2001 as a startling percentage of foreign aid continues to flood Taliban coffers on a daily basis, according to Douglas A. Wissing in his new book, Funding the Enemy: How U.S. Taxpayers Bankroll the Taliban.
Not only does Wissing paint a disturbing portrait of how the U.S. government has mismanaged billions in development aid, he provides a painfully realistic view of the war that contrasts sharply with the rosy outlook spun by the White House. Impeccably researched, based on riveting frontline interviews with hundreds of troops, aid workers, contractors and government officials -- Funding the Enemy is a scathing indictment of U.S. policy in Afghanistan and its reliance on a recycled Vietnam-era strategy of commingling military and development objectives.
Some experts have estimated that close to $1 billion a year of foreign assistance has fallen into the hands of the enemy as a result of poorly-run counterinsurgency programs, ill-devised USAID projects and countless logistics and security extortion rings. In addition, a free-market ideologue outsourcing craze has led to a wholesale lack of oversight while the prioritization of private greed over the public good has fostered unprecedented levels of corruption.
Afghanistan is a case study in paradox, of how development aid can actually destabilize a war-torn country. But development does not reduce violence in a war zone when a large portion of it goes to the enemy -- which makes sense. It also makes for an absurd cycle which has served to prolong the conflict to the sole benefit of war profiteers, warlords and corrupt Afghan officials.
Siphoning of international largesse by the Taliban has burgeoned into an industry unto itself. In fact, it is so widespread the Taliban opened its own shadow office in Kabul where U.S.-funded development, security and logistics contractors line up to pay the Taliban a cut of each deal -- usually about 20% of the contract's value. One U.S. official told Wissing: "I have yet to find a local security firm not in bed with the Taliban."
Road construction has been seen as a panacea to Afghanistan's woes by many U.S. leaders. In 2008 then Senator Joe Biden said: "How do you spell hope in Pashto and Dari? A-S-P-H-A-L-T." But the truth has been quite the opposite considering construction contracts themselves have been a source of Taliban funding. A political analyst told Wissing that if the insurgents don't get their share, nothing gets built. Wissing captures the absurdity of the situation succinctly: "Development wasn't countering the insurgency; it was paying for it."
At the heart of the crisis lies the U.S. attempt to implement a civilian-military hybrid "Marshall Plan" -- a militarization of aid strategy ripped from the Vietnam playbook reminted in Afghanistan as "COIN." The U.S. was already mistrusted for installing the corrupt Hamid Karzai as President and empowering a host of warlords to pacify the country. Mixing short-term military gains with long-term development goals exacerbated the situation, alienated Afghans and bolstered the insurgency.
Just as strategic hamlets failed in Indochina, so too did programs aimed at "winning hearts and minds" in Afghanistan. In both cases the strategy hinged on "binding a hostile local population to the central government" -- a near impossible mission given that most Afghans despise the ruling Karzai kleptocracy as much as they do the Taliban.
Then again, according to former U.S. diplomat Peter Galbraith, the two are one in the same. A U.S.-led anti-corruption task force discovered countless shadowy relationships that exist between the Taliban and the Karzai cartel. Galbraith told Wissing: "I described this as a Mafia state. We see the Afghan state on one side, and the Taliban on the other. But the reality is they work together."
A case in point is Watan Risk Management, a security firm owned by two of Karzai's cousins and his brother, Qayum. Watan partnered with the Taliban to institute a lucrative protection racket. Through its political connections Watan won loads of profitable NATO military security contracts which primarily consisted of Watan "buying off the Taliban." A congressional report concluded that the insurgents made "millions of dollars per week" off the contracts, rivaling opium as a source of Taliban finance.
Funding the Enemy made me wonder if the U.S. has done anything right in Afghanistan. So I asked Mr. Wissing himself, who responded by pointing out Afghanistan's remarkable rise from being the world's forty-second most corrupt country on earth in 2005 to its current number two placing in Transparency International's corruption index. Wissing elaborated:
"With its ravenous, predatory government feeding on US-abetted opium, aid, and corruption, Afghanistan had rocketed up the corruption charts -- with a bullet, as the DJs like to say. More than a decade after the US invaded, Afghanistan remains among the most corrupt countries on the planet."
Not exactly the type of accomplishment I had in mind.

When Muslims don't get their way, the first thing they do is cry racism. What race is Islam? What about the rights of the community that doesn't want this house of hate built. Muslims use their mosques to indoctrinate members to hate us infidels. Indoctrinate them to hate Jews and hate America and what it stands for.  Just remember, not one catholic or jewish synagogue is allowed in Saudi Arabia. Probably where funding for this Mosque is coming from. The Saudis are funding many Mosques here in America. Its part of the Islamization of America.

Gonorrhea Lectim-new deadly disease (UNCLASSIFIED)

One should be thinking about this seriously. I'm sending this because I know you are bright and I care about you.

The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of this old disease. The disease is called "Gonorrhea Lectim." It's pronounced "Gonna re-elect im" and it is a terrible Obamanation. The disease is contracted through dangerous and high risk behavior involving putting your cranium up your rectum. Many victims contracted it in 2008...But now most people, after having been infected for the past 1-3 years, are starting to realize how destructive this sickness is. It's sad because Gonorrhea Lectim is easily cured with a new drug just coming on the market called Votemout (Vote em out). You take the first dose now and the second dose in Nov. 2012 and simply don't engage in such behavior again; otherwise, it could become permanent and eventually wipe out all life as we know it.

Please pass this important message on to all those bright folks you really care about.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg left no tip after Rome lunch

The Telegraph 
May 29, 2012



He may be worth $20 billion, but when Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took his new wife to lunch during their secret honeymoon in Rome he spent just 32 euros (£26) – and did not leave a tip.

The owners of the kosher restaurant in Rome's Jewish Ghetto – a historic quarter in the centre of the city – were surprised when Mr Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan walked away without leaving a gratuity.
Their bill came to just 32 euros after a lunch consisting of deep-fried artichokes – a Roman Jewish speciality – fried pumpkin flowers and ravioli stuffed with sea bass and artichokes.
Instead of wine or beer they opted for a bottle of water and a pot of tea.

Waiters at Nonna Betta, which specialises in Roman Jewish cuisine, were amazed by Mr Zuckerberg's parsimony, not just because of his huge wealth but because of Americans' reputation for tipping generously, as is expected of them at home.

Finland's Iranian Mega-Mosque

Although critics of the Helsinki mega-mosque have warned that the building will be used by the Iranian regime to recruit impressionable youths to Hezbollah, Finnish politicians have embraced the Shia mosque as a symbol of multicultural progress.
new mega-mosque has been inaugurated in the Finnish capital, Helsinki. Unlike most mosques in Europe, which cater to Sunni Muslims, the mosque in Helsinki ministers to Shia Islam.
The Helsinki mosque has been paid for by the Islamic Republic of Iran; critics say that theocrats in Tehran intend to use the mosque to establish a recruiting center for the militant Shia Muslim group Hezbollah in Europe.
The dimensions of the new mosque are enormous by Finnish standards. The 700-square-meter (7,500 square-feet) mega-mosque, located adjacent to a metro station in the eastern Helsinki district of Mellunmäki, features a massive prayer room for 1,000 worshippers.
The mosque has been built by the Ahlul-Beit Foundation, a radical Shia Muslim proselytizing and political lobbying group presided over by the Iranian government. Ahlul-Beit already runs around 70 Islamic centers around the world, and has as its primary goal the promotion of the religious and political views of Islamic radicals in Iran.
Ahlul-Beit is opposed to all brands of Islam that compete with the form of Islam dictated by theocrats in Iran: the organization has called for the persecution of Sunni Muslims, Sufi Muslims, and Alawites, as well as all secular and moderate Muslims. The organization also outspokenly opposes the integration of Muslim immigrants into their host societies.
Ahlul-Beit is especially focused on spreading Islamic Sharia law beyond the Middle East; its centers in Africa and Asia, for example, have been used to radicalize local Muslim communities there. In a typical quid-pro-quo arrangement, the organization offers money to the poor, who then convert to Shia Islam and are subjected to religious training by Iranian-backed Imams. The group has been banned in at least a dozen countries.
In Europe, Ahlul-Beit mosques are usually presented to the general public as centers for cultural and sports activities; in practice, however, they are often used by Iranian intelligence to monitor Iranians living abroad and to harass Iranian dissidents.
In Germany, for instance, the Imam Ali mosque in Hamburg was linked to the September 1992 assassination of four leaders of the Iranian Kurdish Democratic Party at the Mykonos restaurant in Berlin.
In Britain, the Ahlul-Beit mosque in London was involved in issuing death threats against the British-Indian writer Salman Rushdie. The mosque has also been used to recruit terrorists and to spy on Iranian exiles living in England and Wales.
In Denmark, the city council of Copenhagen recently authorized Ahlul-Beit to build the first official "Grand Mosque" in the Danish capital. The mega-mosque, which will have a massive blue dome as well as two towering minarets, is architecturally designed to stand out over Copenhagen's low-rise skyline.
The man set to become the main imam at the new mosque in Copenhagen, Mohammed Mahdi Khademi, is a former military officer who ran the ideology department of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps until 2004, when he was hand-picked by the Iranian regime to move to Denmark. Many Iranian exiles believe Khademi maintains close ties to Iranian intelligence and fear the new mosque will be used against them.
Although critics of the Helsinki mega-mosque have warned that the building will be used by the Iranian regime to recruit impressionable Muslim immigrant youths for service to Hezbollah, Finnish politicians have embraced the Shia mosque as a symbol of multicultural progress.
According to Egypt Today magazine, multiculturalism has turned Finland into a paradise for Muslim immigration, not only for Shia Muslims, but also for rival Sunni Muslims.
In a story entitled "Welcome to Finland," Egypt Today writes: "Tara Ahmed, a 25-year-old Kurdish woman, came with her husband to Finland seven years ago to work. 'There are a lot of services offered to us here,' she says. 'Plus, during my seven years I haven't had one single harassment, assault or discrimination case in any form.' Like most immigrants, Ahmed and her husband took advantage of the free Finnish language lessons offered by the government, which pays immigrants €8 per day to attend. The government also provides immigrants with a free home, health care for their family and education for their children. In addition, they get a monthly stipend of €367 per adult to cover expenses until they start earning their own living. The government is able to pay for these services due to a progressive tax rate that can exceed fifty percent of a person's income. Even so, officials at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed that Finland needs immigrants and that, in the long run, they are not a burden on society."
After the Egypt Today story was published, Muslim immigrants began arriving in Finland in droves. There are now an estimated 60,000 Muslims in Finland, which has a total population of just over 5 million people. Muslims have arrived from Afghanistan, Algeria, China, Egypt, Kosovo, India, Iraq, Iran, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, Pakistan, Somalia and Sub-Saharan Africa.
Immigration from Somalia alone has more than doubled over the past several years. The Helsingin Sanomat newspaper has reported that most of the Somali adults coming to Finland are illiterate, and that the Somali terrorist group al-Shabab has been recruiting young Somalis living in Finland to go to war against the Somali government.
Some Muslim immigrants to Finland have travelled to Pakistan or Somalia to attend jihadi training camps; Finnish authorities have conceded that Somalis are abusing the family unification procedure to facilitate human trafficking.
According to a journalist for the Finnish Broadcasting Company, Tom Kankkonen, who recently wrote a book entitledIslam Euroopassa [Islam in Europe], Finland is also home to several hundred Islamic fundamentalists who adhere to the extremist Wahhabi sect of Sunni Islam found in Saudi Arabia. Wahhabism, which not only discourages Muslim integration in the West, but actively encourages jihad against non-Muslims, threatens to further radicalize Muslim immigrants in Finland, according to Kankkonen, who says these Islamists operate in communities such as the Helsinki Muslimikoti [Muslim Home], the Iqra Association, and the Salafi Forum on the Internet.
In response to the growing threat posed by radical Islam, the Finnish Interior Ministry in December 2010 declared that training individuals to commit terrorist acts would become a criminal offense. The Finnish Security Police (SUPO) has also asked Parliament for €1.7 million in funding to station officers permanently in Africa and the Middle East to stop possible terrorists who might want to travel to Finland.
There are also growing concerns about the failure of ordinary Muslim immigrants to integrate into Finland.
Muslim children in Finnish schools, for example, are often not allowed to take part in school activities such as singing and dancing, which some parents consider to be anti-Islamic. Further, immigrant children apparently often play "the race card" if a solution to a conflict does not go in their favor or if a teacher rebukes a child.
In some instances, Muslim parents have harassed Finnish teachers, as in the case of Tuija Rinne, a Finnish convert to Islam who also teaches in a school in Helsinki. Rinne, who was once the pride and joy of Finnish multiculturalists, was recently forced to stop teaching a course on Islam after Muslim parents accused her of not being sufficiently Muslim.
Among other demands, Muslim parents tried to force Rinne to cover herself in hijab-compliant clothing; they also ridiculed Rinne for teaching belly dancing classes in her spare time. The tensions were defused only after local school officials bowed to Muslim demands and agreed that from now courses on Islam will be taught exclusively by Muslim immigrant teachers and only in their native language.
As their numbers grow, Muslims are also demanding that the Finnish government provide them with more mosques and prayer rooms. There are currently 45 mosques and prayer rooms in Finland, most located in Helsinki; the Islamic Society of Finland, a Muslim umbrella group, says they are overcrowded and inadequate.
As far as Helsinki's new mega-mosque is concerned, Sunni Muslims say it will not provide any decisive relief for the shortage of prayer space in Finland because the mosque will serve only Shia Muslims. As in other European countries, Sunni Muslims in Finland may now look to Saudi Arabia to fund a Sunni mega-mosque to rival Iran's Shia mega-mosque

MEMORIAL DAY, 2012!!!

Murray M. Silverman, Esq. "Legaleagle"
May 28, 2012

At times it is difficult for me to put into words the emotions that I feel…today is one of those times.
MEMORIAL DAY!!!  
Originally called “Declaration Day,” is a day of remembrance for those who died in our nation’s service, it is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday in May.
How do you say “THANK YOU?”
I admit that I cherish tenderly the memories of our heroic dead who made their breast a barricade between our country and it’s foes.
They served our country with great pride, integrity, guts, and fierce determination that America is the land of the free and the home of the braveand should remain that way eternally.  We all know the great examples of courage beyond the call of duty. My first experience was in Savannah, Georgia, in 1946 when the remains of Staff Sgt. George K. Gannam, was returned for burial.  22 years old,  Killed In Action in the defense of Hickham Field near Honolulu, Hawaii, December 7, 1941, and Savannah’s first fatality, in World War,II.  I was honored to serve as a Benedictine Military School, Color Guard, and fire the 21 gun salute as chills ran down my spine and tears filled my eyes, to observe first hand the grief of his family. I performed that duty over two years, a total of 22 times, and never got used to it. Those thoughts remain with me.
“Thank you is inadequate.”   We will not forget…that they did not die in vain…remember….remember…
Pause to reflect on what has been given so that Freedom could ring across this great land.
My dear friend, J. K. Rau, a Great American, and Nashville, Tennessee native reminds me that TAPS is appropriate…a musical piece sounded at dusk and at funerals by the United States Military, generally on bugle.:
TAPS
“Day is done, gone the sun, from the lakes, from the hills, from the sky.
All is well, safely rest, GOD is Nigh.
Fading light dims the sight, and a star gems the sky, gleaming bright from afar, drawing near,
Falls the night,
Thanks and  praise for our days,
Neath the sun, neath the stars, neath the sky.
As we go, this we know,
GOD IS NIGH.”
And so my friends,
TO ALL OUR HEROIC DEAD- “MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU ON THIS AND EVERY DAY!” 

US drones target local AQAP leaders in Yemen

The Long War Journal

The US targeted two local leaders of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in the central province of Baydah today. The AQAP leaders survived the strike, but five fighters are reported to have been killed.
Today's drone strike, the ninth by the US in Yemen this month, targeted Kaid al Dhahab, AQAP's emir in the province of Baydah, and his brother Nabil, who is also a senior leader in the terror group, according to The Yemen Post.
The remotely piloted Predators or the more deadly Reapers targeted Kaid and Nabil as they were traveling in a convoy in Rada'a, a city in Baydah that was under AQAP control earlier this year. The drones killed five AQAP fighters and wounded four more, according to The Associated Press. US intelligence officials told The Long War Journal that Kaid was the target of the strike.

Kaid took control of AQAP in Baydah after his brother, Tariq, was killed in February by another brother, Hazam, a senior tribal leader in the town who was concerned that Tariq's affiliation with AQAP would incur the wrath of the Yemeni government. Before he was killed, Tariq had seized control of Baydah, raised al Qaeda's banner, sworn allegiance to Ayman al Zawahiri, and warned that "the Islamic Caliphate is coming."
Kaid and Nabil were tasked with regrouping AQAP's forces in Baydah after Tariq's death. The two leaders are also the brothers-in-law of slain AQAP leader and ideologue Anwar al Awlaki.
US strikes in Yemen
The US has now carried at least nine drone strikes in Yemen this month. The last confirmed strike took place on May 19. Other recent airstrikes are believed to have been carried out by the US also, but little evidence has emerged to directly link the attacks to the US.
US is known to have carried out 22 airstrikes against AQAP in Yemen so far this year; one in January, six in March, and at least six more in April, in addition to the nine already in May.
Since December 2009, the CIA and the US military's Joint Special Operations Command are known to have conducted at least 37 air and missile strikes inside Yemen, including today's strike in Baydah province. [For more information on the US airstrikes in Yemen, see LWJ report, Charting the data for US air strikes in Yemen, 2002 - 2012.]
The pace of the US airstrikes has increased as AQAP and its political front, Ansar al Sharia, have taken control of vast areas of southern Yemen. AQAP controls the cities of Zinjibar, Al Koud, Jaar, and Shaqra in Abyan province. The terror group also holds Azzan in Shabwa province.
The Yemeni military has launched an offensive to retake the cities and towns held by AQAP. Heavy fighting has been reported in Zinjibar, Jaar, and Lawdar. Hundreds of AQAP fighters, Yemeni soldiers, and civilians have been reported killed during fighting in recent weeks.
Since the beginning of May 2011, the US is known to have carried out 32 airstrikes in Yemen. This year, the US appears to be targeting both AQAP leaders and foot soldiers in an effort to support Yemeni military operations against the terror group. AQAP has taken control of vast areas in southern Yemen and has been expanding operations against the government, with raids on military bases in locations previously thought to be outside the terror group's control.
Three senior AQAP operatives have been killed in the 22 strikes so far this year. The most recent strike that killed a senior AQAP leader took place on May 6, when the US killed Fahd al Quso in a drone attack in Shabwa province. Quso, who has been described as AQAP's external operations chief, was involved in numerous terrorist attacks, including the 2000 suicide attack on the USS Cole that killed 17 US sailors. The US obtained the information leading to Quso from a Saudi operative who had penetrated AQAP.
On Jan. 31, US drones killed Abdul Mun'im Salim al Fatahani near the city of Lawdar in Abyan province. Fatahani was also involved in the suicide attack on the USS Cole, as well as the bombing that damaged the Limburg oil tanker in 2002. AQAP said that Fatahani had fought in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The US also killed Mohammed Saeed al Umda (a.k.a. Ghareeb al Taizi) in an April 22 drone strike on a convoy in the Al Samadah area of Marib province. Prior to the downfall of the Taliban regime in 2001, he had attended the Al Farouq military training camp in Afghanistan. Umda served as a member of Osama bin Laden's bodyguard in Afghanistan before returning to Yemen, and was involved in the October 2002 suicide attack on the French oil tanker Limburg. He escaped from a Yemeni jail in 2006.
US intelligence officials believe that al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula poses a direct threat to the homeland. The latest AQAP plot against the West, involving an underwear bomb that is nearly undetectable and was to be detonated on an airliner, was foiled earlier this month. The terror group has planned multiple attacks against targets in the US. A strike in Yemen last year killed both Anwar al Awlaki, the radical, US-born cleric who plotted attacks against the US, and Samir Khan, another American who served as a senior AQAP propagandist.

Ronald Reagan - A Time For Choosing

May 28, 2012

Reagan's speech is more powerful today as it rings so true of the times were living in today. Obama is just what Reagan was talking about. If I had to chose between Reagan and Obama, I'd pick Reagan in a heartbeat. Obama is a traitor so willing to submit to Islam and our enemies.
Patrick Henry said "Give me liberty or give me death", Obama says I surrender and am willing to live under an oppresive system. One that would fits Islam to a T.

An 'Imaginary' President Appeases a Very Real Islam

Middle East Forum
by Raymond Ibrahim
FrontPageMagazine.com
May 28, 2012



American intellectual Will Durant's The Lessons of History—co-written with wife Ariel and published in 1968, when the Soviet Union posed a threat to the United States—still offers insightful lessons, especially concerning American-Muslim relations.
In the chapter titled "History and War," the Durants posit some hypothetical speeches and approaches concerning war. First, an imaginary U.S. president says before the leaders of communist Russia:
If we should follow the usual course of history, we should make war upon you for fear of what you may do a generation hence…. But we are willing to try a new approach. We respect your peoples and your civilizations as among the most creative in history. We shall try to understand your feelings, and your desire to develop your own institutions without fear of attack. We must not allow our mutual fears to lead us into war, for the unparalleled murderousness of our weapons and yours brings into the situation an element unfamiliar in history. We propose to send representatives to join with yours in a persistent conference for the adjustment of our differences, the cessation of hostilities and subversion, and the reduction of our armaments…. Let us open our doors to each other, and organize cultural exchanges that will promote mutual appreciation and understanding…. We pledge our honor before all mankind to enter into this venture in full sincerity and trust. If we lose in the historic gamble, the results could not be worse than those that we may expect from traditional policies. If you and we succeed, we shall merit a place for centuries to come in the grateful memory of mankind.
Once the imaginary president concludes, "the general smiles," write the authors, and retorts:
You have forgotten all the lessons of history and all that nature of man which you described. Some conflicts are too fundamental to be resolved by negotiation; and during the prolonged negotitiations (if history may be our guide) subversion would go on. A world order will come not by a gentlemen's agreement, but through so decisive a victory by one of the great powers that it will be able to dictate and enforce international law, as Rome did from Augustus to Aurelius. Such interludes of widespread peace are unnatural and exceptional; they will soon be ended by changes in the distribution of military power.
Now, consider how well this hypothetical exchange, written in 1968, applies to the current situation between the U.S. and the Muslim world:
First, the "imaginary" president has become all too real, in the person of Barack Obama. Above and beyond his so-called "historic Cairo speech," where he reached out to and cloyingly flattered the Muslim world, everything this man has subsequently said and done—from expunging all references to Islam in U.S. security documents, to ordering NASA to make Muslims "feel good" about themselves—far exceeds the expressed outreach of the imaginary president.
Next, the situation has changed in a way that makes it even more naïve and irrational for the U.S. to be so appeasing of the Islamic world. Whereas the U.S.S.R was a nuclear-armed superpower—making dialogue and cooperation logical, practically risk-free options, since, as the imaginary president concluded in his speech, the alternative was war, anyway—that is not the case with the Islamic world, which is currently militarily inferior, and thus need not be appeased.
Quite the contrary, by giving one's opponent time and freedom, "subversion would go on," as the imaginary general correctly points out, whether Muslim nations like Iran grow to become nuclear powers, or whether Muslims in the West work to subvert their host nations. This threat of subversion is especially apt considering that Islam's own teachings promote subversion and deceitful tactics.
Likewise, the imaginary president's idealistic approach was directed at Russia, which, while communist for several decades, still shared in the Western heritage and worldview, and so may have been better expected to reciprocate and cooperate—certainly more so than the Islamic world, the culture of which is fundamentally alien to such utopian principles expressed by the imaginary president, the utopian principles expressed by Obama. Accordingly, the general's observation, "Some conflicts are too fundamental to be resolved by negotiation," is especially applicable to today's conflict with the Islamic world—a conflict that stretches back some 1400 years.
Even so, as the Durants indicated, no matter how utopian an American president might be, it was a safe assumption (in 1968) that at least America's generals would maintain sobriety. Yet today, that, too, no longer appears to be the case, as naivety and censorship have so thoroughly penetrated the war colleges and intelligence agencies—evinced by a politically-correct Pentagon, an Assistant Defense Secretary for Homeland Defense who absurdly refuses to associate "violent Islamist extremism" as motivating al-Qaeda, and an Intelligence Chief who thinks the Muslim Brotherhood is "largely secular."
What, then, are the "lessons of history"? This: Ideas that were once recognized as overly naïve, put only in the mouths of imaginary characters, have, in the course of half a century, become so mainstream, despite the fact that the political circumstances that may have warranted them then, vis-à-vis the Soviet Union, have changed to make their application now, with the Muslim world, wholly irrational—a sort of slow-motion suicide.

Muslim Gang snatched schoolboy, 14, off street and threatened to behead him unless family paid £40,000 ransom

A gang of Islamic thugs kidnapped a 14-year-old and told his parents they would chop his head off if they didn’t pay a £40,000 ransom, a court heard.

Abdal Miah, 29, Liban Mohammed, 20, Anjam Shaffique, 30, and Carlos Treazure, 27, are on trial accused of snatching the unnamed youngster off the street.

The terrified teen was allegedly taken outside an off-licence in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, dragged into a car, and driven to a rural village - where he was eventually released eight hours later.

Sheffield Crown Court heard the teenager had a hood placed over his head, and was forced to make phone calls to his father and mother relaying his abductors’ ransom demands.

Alistair MacDonald QC, prosecuting, said the youngster was talking to friends outside Bir’s Beers on Staniforth Road, when he was snatched at around 4pm on October 31 last year.

He said a man approached him and asked whether he was responsible for smashing up his Vauxhall Astra car.
'The man gripped the boy’s wrist and tried to drag him away,' Mr MacDonald said.

    Jurors heard that another kidnapper arrived when the boy resisted, and they both dragged him behind the off-licence and threw him into the back of a waiting car.

    'His head was held down and a hood was placed over his head,' Mr MacDonald said, adding four men were in the car.
    He said the teenager’s father rang his son’s phone and one of the kidnappers answered.

    They said they wanted 40 ‘bags’ - slang for thousands of pounds - or ‘his son was coming back in pieces’.

    When the boy’s parents failed to raise the money, the amount was dropped to 2,000 pounds, jurors heard.
    'There was a threat to chop the boy’s head off,' Mr MacDonald said.

    The schoolboy was released at around midnight, and ran to a farmhouse in Ringinglow, where resident Angela Batty helped him to call the police.

    Mr MacDonald said the alleged kidnappers were snared using DNA evidence and telephone call data.

    'Only the kidnappers know why they released him,' he said.
    The four deny kidnapping and blackmail. The trial continues.
