We Are Not Allies, We Are Still The Infidels

By Major General Jerry Curry, USA, Ret. Published: 7:12 AM 01/28/2012
The great British poet Rudyard Kipling, understanding today’s situation in Afghanistan better than our State Department wrote, “I have eaten your bread and salt. I have drunk your water and wine. The deaths ye died I have watched beside. And the lives ye led were mine.”

There are two points the President and the Secretaries of State and Defense may want to keep in mind as they evaluate future problems in the Middle East and how to successfully address them. Both are easiest illustrated by real life happenings.

Many years ago I attended the Infantry officer Advanced Course at Fort Benning, Georgia. Probably ten percent of the students attending that ten month course of instruction were from foreign countries. For about half of the course my tablemate was an Arab. We studied together, completed homework assignments together, got to know each other’s families and generally enjoyed each other’s company. Part of that time we students were immersed in reading about, researching and discussing wars and problems of the Middle East. By this time my Arab classmate and I had, I thought, become close friends. A question popped into my mind and without evaluating it I said, “I have a question to ask you, but you may find it a little impertinent … or, perhaps, offensive.”

“That’s quite alright,” he replied. “We know each other well enough to be honest with each other. So go ahead and ask your question.”

“Well,” I began. “Each time you Arabs start a war with Israel, they beat your socks off. Why don’t you learn your lesson and quit making war on them?”

The words hadn’t passed my lips before I knew that I shouldn’t have asked that particular question. But I was wrong. My Arab officer friend didn’t get angry. He didn’t even think before replying.

“My dear friend,” he said in his British accent, “You are absolutely right. Each time we attack the Israelis they whip our asses. But have you noticed that with each loss we get better. We get whipped not as badly as in the war before.”

Then he got a faraway look in his eyes, pounded on the table and said, “Sometime in the next thousand years … we will win!”

Up until then I had never thought in terms of a thousand years, and I don’t think I’m very good at it today. But for those formulating foreign and defense policy for the nation, it is worth making the effort. For it is difficult to think in terms of the immediate future while negotiating with a nation whose leaders are thinking in terms of hundreds or thousands of years.

Point two: during the first Gulf War U.S. and Arab forces fought side by side and some of the officers became close friends. When the war ended in victory there was a celebration in the officer’s club with everyone congratulating each other. A lot of handshaking and hugging was going on. It was a time of displaying real brotherly love.

Seeing this, one of the senior Arab generals felt the need to set the record straight. “Look,” he said to a small cluster of American generals. “We have fought together and some of us have died together. I know you feel that that makes us brothers. But that is not the way it is in my world.”

He looked around the circle making eye contact with all of them. “I don’t want to see you hurt so I need to share this with you. There will be no tomorrow for us jointly. No matter how much you have helped my country — and you came and helped us when we desperately needed your help – and no matter how friendly you feel toward us, we are still Muslims and you are still Christians. That means that in our eyes, we can never be brothers. I’m sorry but, to us, you will always be – Infidels!”

And so we Infidels have liberated Iraq and Afghanistan, but we have not made their countries nor their people depositories of freedom and liberty. No matter how hard we work to rebuild their governments, infrastructure, educational and medical institutions, and no matter how desperately they need our help — as the Arab general pointedly noted – we can never be brothers to each other.

Also, I learned what Kipling meant when he wrote, “East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet.” He was pointing out to the western world that to Muslims, we Christians will always be infidels!

November 13th, 2008 Posted By Pat Dollard.

A reader comment that has been upgraded to a Post. This is going to be up here for a little while today, so look below for new posts as they are posted.

Friends,

Will you please take the time to read this, and if you think it worthwhile, pass it along to your email list, and ask them to read it? Even if they voted, with all good intentions, for Mr. Obama?

I am a student of history. Professionally. I have written 15 books in six languages, and have studied it all my life. I think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is just a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist, but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus.

Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten – fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.

We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why?

We learn just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real oversight by anyone, has “loaned” two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms. That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the 700B we all argued about so strenuously just this past September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized it? I thought this was a government of “we the people,” who loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently not.

We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy. Why?

We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why?

We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election (now violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial that it wants marriage to remain between one man and one woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?). We have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic. To what purpose?

Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is medicare and our entire government, our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and know precisely what I am talking about)–the list is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth. It is potentially 1929 x ten. And we are at war with an enemy we cannot name for fear of offending people of the same religion, who cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they have the opportunity to do so.

And now we have elected a man no one knows anything about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla, Alaska. All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No? Oh of course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand he answer it. Sarah Palin’s pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe is more imporant.)

Mr. Obama’s winning platform can be boiled down to one word: change.

Why?

I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now.

This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the pieces into a new and different power structure. Change is indeed coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again.

And that is only the beginning.

And I thought I would never be able to experience what the ordinary, moral German felt in the mid-1930s. In those times, the savior was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What they did know was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory and promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his “brown shirts” would bully them into submission. And then, he was duly elected to office, a full-throttled economic crisis at hand [the Great Depression]. Slowly but surely he seized the controls of government power, department by department, person by person, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The kids joined a Youth Movement in his name, where they were taught what to think. How did he get the people on his side? He did it promising jobs to the jobless, money to the moneyless, and goodies for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe, and across the world.

He did it with a compliant media–did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and . . . change. And the people surely got what they voted for.

(Look it up if you think I am exaggerating.)

Read your history books. Many people objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and made fun of. When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though.

Don’t forget that Germany was the most educated, cultured country in Europe. It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And in less than six years–a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency–it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors. All with the best of intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved with them.

As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring what is transpiring around me.

Some people scoff at me, others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. Perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and tell them exactly what I believe–and why I believe it.

I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am.

Best regards

Why did U.S. special operations forces strike positions across the Syrian-Iraq border?

My Question to you is:

Should we have the right to go after those who come in Iraq to bring in weapons to kill our troops, Iraqi troops and Iraqi civilians?

My Answer:

Absolutely!

Michael Yon has been one of the few Journalist who has been giving us the truths of what is truly happening in Iraq and now Afghanistan. He posted an article today titled “Bloody Border, Messy Politics” about the U.S. crossing the Syrian-Iraq border.

27 October 2008

Yesterday, U.S. special operations forces struck positions across the Syrian-Iraq order, inside of Syria, apparently killing nine people, most of whom were non-Syrian Arab fighters on their way into Iraq. Of course there is a great cry rising from the Syrians today.

For years, tons of explosives and a long line of foreign terrorists have streamed across the Syrian border into Anbar Province and Nineveh Province, Iraq. I must have spent a total of about nine months in Nineveh, about eight of which were in the capital of Mosul, and another month in Anbar.

Foreign terrorists were caught or killed on a regular basis, and they all had the same story: They came from an alphabet soup of Arab countries: Algeria, Jordan, Libya, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia and Yemen, to name a handful. They had come through Syria. I remember the day the Libyan was captured in 2005. Iraqis were trying to force him to wear a suicide vest to attack police in Mosul. I remember the night, a raid that I did not go on, when the Tunisians were captured in 2005, resulting in hand-to-hand combat that did not go well for the Tunisians. The owner of the safe house was captured with a diary listing dates and effects for years of attacks; that diary actually matched up perfectly with SIGACT reports of the same incidents. The Tunisians were captured with all sorts of documentation, as I recall, that chronicled their long journey by all modes of transport to get through to Syria and across into Mosul.

To read the rest of this article please go to Michael Yon’s Website and/or to Pajamas Media for Michael Yon’s full article.

Here is a true story “The Story behind the Photo” that has had a lasting effect upon one of our Marines and his family. Notice this happened in Anbar Province and the suicide bomber came in from Syria. This is a  story you’ll be so thankful for knowing.

Just in case you’re interested in reading PROPAGANDA our enemies feed the world bias media, here is one.

Russia Threatens WAR Over Missile Shield, Moves Forces Into Med.

Today is Sept. 1, 2008 and I’m having to look for information about Georgia and Russia. Our Main Stream News all sucks! We cannot depend of them anymore. They do not report on all of the great works our troops are doing around the world including in Iraq and Afghanistan. They also do not report on very important news that we need to know. The MSM SUCKS

The article below is crossposted froma blog called “The American Freedomist

This is news that everyone of us NEED TO KNOW.

The article is published by The American Freedomist Adminstration.

September 1, 2008 8:40 AM- Russia’s Putin says today that if Europe imposes any sanctions they will re-route all gas and oil from Europe over to the Far`East in a blatant violation of many previous promises that they would never use energy as a weapon.

Meanwhile, there are reports that Russian forces are leaving most of Georgia excluding Poti, Abkazia, and Ossetia.

Russia's Aircfrat Carrier

William R Collier Jr. The American Freedomist

The BIG headline of the day should not be about Obama or the normal droll that passes as “news” these days, the blaring headline should be that Russia, Syria, and Iran are all headed towards a military confrontation with Israel and the Urkraine and that Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has said Russia will have to respond militarily to the deployment of elements of a U.S. missile shield in Central Europe, according to RIA Novosti.

“These missiles are close to our borders and constitute a threat to us,” Medvedev said in an interview with Al-Jazeera television on Tuesday. “This will create additional tension and we will have to respond to it in some way, naturally using military means.”

The assumption has been that Russia would attack Poland itself, but this assumption ignores where Russian forces, especially naval and air, are concentrated: in the Black Sea and the Eastern Mediterranean although Russia has considerable resources in Kaliningrad.

The Russians have been steadily increasing their military capabilities in Kallinigrad, an enclave of land claimed by Germany (Konigsbirg), Poland, and Lithuania which Russia had promised would be weapons free in the early 90’s but which has been beefed up as a dagger pointing at Polan and Lithuania.

Kaliningrad Oblast is the site of tens of thousands of Russian ground and air forces equipped with 1100 main battle tanks, 1300 armored combat vehicles, dozens of Scud and SS-21 surface-to-surface missiles, and 35 advanced Su-27 fighter aircraft, among other modern weapons. Some of these weapons still carry nuclear payloads. There are well over 100,000 troops crammed into this tiny enclave which is 200 miles or so from Russia, separated by Lithuanian and Polish territory.

Kaliningrad Oblast is the headquarters of the Russian Navy’s Baltic Fleet and the site of one of its two main naval bases in the region, Baltiisk. The Baltic Fleet does not include any strategic missile submarines, but it does include 32 major surface combatants (3 cruisers, 3 destroyers, and 26 frigates), more than 230 other surface vessels, roughly 200 naval aircraft, 9 tactical submarines, and a brigade of naval infantry.

Moscow is beefing up its military presence in the Mediteranean, particularly the Eastern Med., by sending their only aircraft carrier “Admiral Kuznetsov” from its home base in Murmansk, to the Mediterranean and the Syrian port of Tartus and into Georgia’s territorial waters, including the port of Poti. President Bashar Assad of Syria recently agreed to a deal to place Russian surface to surface missiles in Syria while Russia has also announced their intentions to place these same missiles in Kalliningrad, a potential Hot Spot with ties to Germany and neighbors, Poland and Lithuania, which is divided from Russia but which has a vital port that is utilized by the Russian Navy.

The United States has responded somewhat timidly, sending in its own flotilla of three warships, one being the Coast Guard cutter Dallas, to provide humanitarian aide to Georgia. America’s decision to redirect its Georgia aid warship from Russian-controlled Poti port to Georgian-controlled Batumi Wednesday, August 27 – on direct orders from the Pentagon – did not cool the escalating tension between the two powers. As soon as the US Coast Guard cutter Dallas docked with 34 tons of humanitarian aid, three Russian missile boats, led by the Moskva missile cruiser, anchored at the Black Sea port of Sukhumi, capital of breakaway Abkhazia, to the north for what the Russians called “peacekeeping operations.”

In Moscow, Col. Gen. Anatoly Nogovitsyn said NATO had exhausted the number of forces it can deploy in the Black Sea under international agreements. He warned Western nations against sending more ships. “NATO – which is not a state located in the Black Sea” cannot continuously increase its forces and systems there, he said. Russia has also announced that any vessels that enter the Georgian Port of Poti will be searched.

Russian Navy chief, Adm. Vladimir Vysotsky announced Sunday, Aug. 24, that its warships in the Mediterranean region have been placed under the command of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet.

By linking up the warships in the Black sea, now we know why the Russians sent the flotilla (the Moskva was part of that flotilla), the Russians have essentially placed their entire naval operations in the region on a war footing. Israeli and American military commanders in the region are concerned that this may lead to hostilities, even unintentional, with all these warships jostling about in a relatively small space.

Another major concern is the Crimea which some fear will soon be targeted, despite a recent, and dramatic, announcement by the Brutish Foreign Office and other by both NATO and the G7 that they would not tolerate any violation of Ukrainian territorial sovereignty. The general message was that Russia would be making a mistake if they learned “the wrong lesson” from Georgia: a clear sign that in the minds of some Russia fait accompli in Georgia is becoming an irreversible fact.

Russia’s ally, Iran, has also been busy, integrating its missile command with that of Syria and placing an Iranian early warning system in Lebanon. What is wore, Western military and intelligence were shocked to learn that Iran has plans and the right technology for making a nuclear warhead that could fit onto its Shehab-3 missiles. The discovery was released by the former UN weapons inspector, David Albright.

While US news adores Barack Obama or focuses on news about abduction, missing children, or Hollywood starlets the world outside seems to be moving steadily towards some form of confrontation.

Anniversary of Life Saver Bombs

by Jim Cardoza at Liberty Pen

July 23, 2008

August 6th will mark sixty-three years since a blinding light filled the sky above Hiroshima.  On that fateful day, the detonation of a single bomb, created a fireball wider than three football fields.  The blast heated ground temperatures to 5,000 degrees centigrade, and produced a mushroom cloud that rose nearly 20,000 feet.  In a split second, 70,000 unsuspecting people were burned, crushed or vaporized.

In the aftermath, tens of thousands were left milling about the city seeking relief from fire, shock and pain.  Many threw themselves into the Ota River which, by day’s end, was awash with thousands of corpses.

Just three days later, American forces dropped a second atomic bomb, this time on the port city of Nagasaki.  In a hellish instant, thirty percent of the city and 40,000 of its citizens ceased to exist.

The devastation resulting from the nuclear bombs was clearly of Biblical proportion.  All tolled, the loss of human life may have numbered a quarter million.

But merely rehashing the details of the nuclear destruction we imposed does not tell the whole story.  The truth is, the bombs accomplished an even greater measure of good.  Not only did they end World War II within a week, they prevented an alternative strategy from being deployed — one which would have resulted in far more bloodshed for Japanese and Americans alike.

Many of us know about the atrocities of Nazi Germany, but fail to realize the level of brutality demonstrated by Japan between 1931 and 1945.  During those years, barbaric Japanese invaders murdered roughly 2 million civilians and tortured countless others, as they sought to conquer China.

Accounts from both Nanking and Chungking tell of episodes in which the Japanese rounded up Chinese citizens, tied them together in bunches with ropes, poured gasoline over them, and ignited them.

In December, 1937, Japan’s army finally captured Nanjing, at that time the capital of China.  In the six weeks that followed, the Japanese forces not only ravaged China’s national treasures, but conducted killing contests in which civilians were buried or burned alive, drowned, decapitated or made targets for bayonet practice.

Like their German counterparts, they subjected children to medical experiments involving germ injections, amputations, and surgeries without anesthetic.  Sex crimes committed by Japan against the women of Asia are both numerous and well documented.  Certainly no student of history would suggest that the Japanese, who along with the Germans and Americans were frantically attempting to develop nuclear weapons, would have been morally opposed to using “the bomb” against American civilians.

In the absence of nuclear force, Americans would have been left with General George Marshall’s plan for an island-by-island invasion.  The projected cost of the mission was estimated as high as half a million American lives.

Few doubt the Japanese would have fiercely resisted such an attempt.  Like their suicide-bombing counterparts of today, they had long ago traded reason for fanaticism.

Since they believed their emperor to be divine, carrying out the wishes of the emperor was a sacred duty.  At both Iwo Jima and Okinawa, Japanese soldiers abandoned their wounded in order to virtually fight to the last man.  Many chose to be burned alive in their caves rather than concede.  The well-known Kamikaze pilots, trained in suicidal crash attacks, are the poster children for this mentality.

In phase one of Marshall’s plan, Operation Olympic, 650,000 Americans would have been sent to try to capture the island of Kyushu.  The Japanese were prepared to defend their turf with 540,000 troops and 5,000 kamikaze planes, virtually assuring a historic bloodbath.

In Operation Coronet, an assembled invasion force of two million men were deemed necessary to victoriously sustain the long, arduous drive toward Tokyo.  The Japanese government, in preparation for such an Allied invasion, added to the cataclysmic potential by supplying domestic households with guns, knives and explosives.

The nuclear bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki prevented those dreadful scenarios.  But, don’t expect America’s critics, who will use the anniversary of this occurrence to point the bony finger at Uncle Sam, to bring it up in their empty-headed, hand-wringing diatribes.

Those critics may not understand history, but they do understand human nature.  They know that it is our tendency to focus on what has occurred without considering what might have happened had the action not taken place.

Consider Iraq.  We can easily contemplate the economic costs and loss of life, as well as the myriad of other undeniable downsides of what has occurred.  However, the downside of having taken another path cannot be so easily calculated — and is therefore, often minimized.  Such is the luxury of the critic.

When we think about Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we cannot help being reminded of the horrors of war.  But, no apologies from the United States are necessary.  The Japanese have only their Emperor and those who blindly followed him to blame for those fateful events in the summer of 1945.

All Americans should be grateful to President Truman for his decision to nuke Japan.  In doing so, he not only protected Americans from fanatical tyrants, but he allowed many of our fathers and grandfathers to continue living.  For that, he deserves unwavering praise.
