The Wages of Kerry

I do not exaggerate to claim a Kerry presidency, which abandons the Bush doctrine of pre-emption, will get your children horribly killed.

Iran will have atomic weapons in 4-12 months unless they are pre-empted.

They will use them immediately. Unlike the USSR, which had the capability but not the immediate intent to destroy us, the Islamic Fascists have the immediate intent but not yet the capability. They've already pressed the button. The bombs are already on their way.

They just have to finish building them.

They embrace their own destruction.

The nihilism at the root of mystical Islamic Fascism is discussed here. In brief,
The fundamental nihilistic feature of Islam is an unconditional submission to Allah’s will, no questions asked, ever. No Thomist inquiries or heresies uttered by a Moslem Pierre Abélard could ever be tolerated in Islamic practice or in Islamic politics. One such concession would spell the eventual demise of a religion that requires absolute power over men’s minds and bodies. Obey, or die.

The London Sunday Times of May 23 featured an article by Amir Taheri, who quoted the late Saudi theologian, Sheikh Muhammad bin Ibrahim al-Jubair, who substantiated Taheri’s thesis that “democracy” (or a secular, representative government) was incompatible with Islam:

“Only one ambition is worthy of Islam, to save the world from the curse of democracy: to teach men that they cannot rule themselves on the basis of man-made laws. Mankind has strayed from the path of God, we must return to that path or face certain annihilation.”

An ambiguously put ultimatum, at the very least. Whose annihilation? Islam’s? Or the West’s? If Islam cannot triumph and govern man’s existence on earth, can it allow the West to survive so that man can live happily on it?

“There is only one state that fulfills the mystic’s longing for infinity, non-causality, non-identity: death,” said John Galt in Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged. “…A mystic relishes the spectacle of suffering, of poverty, subservience and terror; these give him a feeling of triumph, a proof of the defeat of rational reality.”

...This explains why schoolgirls and women teachers at Beslan could be raped, then shot in the head afterward by Basayev’s thugs, to express the efficacy of evil and the painful pointlessness of existence, and to erase whatever joy of existence may have moved the lives they ended. “I hate my existence. Why should you enjoy yours? If I suffer, it’s your fault. Now it’s your turn.” That is nihilism, disguised in political/religious garb. It is transparently evil. It explains the random, indiscriminate brutalization and killing of hostages at Beslan, then their wholesale slaughter with bombs, bullets and grenades when the crisis reached its apex.

It explains why planeloads of people can be blown out of the sky, or used as missiles to destroy the symbols of Western civilization, in the name of Allah. And why busloads of schoolchildren, workers, and housewives can be blown to pieces by Palestinian suicide bombers, or shredded by glass, nails, and ball bearings in pizza parlors and at weddings.

Every Westerner -- every American, especially -- should regard every such assault personally, as a personal attack on himself, and demand that our leaders fight this enemy ruthlessly, with no mercy, concession, or compromise granted to these new barbarians. It should be a moral crusade against a determined human carnivore.

Ancient Rome thought it could bargain with Attila and Alaric. And that was the end of Rome.
