    I am impressed with your willful blindness. Good luck with that.

    Well, IMO, it's you who is the blind one. So good luck to you.

    First we need to get their attention. Destroying Mecca will do that. The only ones who will die are the ones who do not move. Tough for them.

    I cannot help that the US does not have the political will to fight a long duration war of attrition. But that is what it will take.

    We could create a list of all known holy sites and destroy them all in one afternoon. I think we could do it if we used nuclear weapons. Our once powerful military is not up to the job any longer. And that is because of the sissies who are in charge.

    LOL. Medical problem. It is the same reason I occasionally drop letters. I usually catch the errors. But thanks for the help. I appreciate it.

    Dude, that's silly.

    I cannot help that the US does not have the political will to fight a long duration war of attrition. But that is what it will take.
    No, that's really not what it takes.

    We could create a list of all known holy sites and destroy them all in one afternoon. I think we could do it if we used nuclear weapons. Our once powerful military is not up to the job any longer. And that is because of the sissies who are in charge.
    To 'get their attention' right? That's laughable, man.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    How many people do you think would need killing?

    I think the number is probably less than one percent. How many high value targets do you believe there are?

    We would be forced to become energy independent. I think that drilling here and drilling now is a good idea anyway.

    But what about the strawman? Explaining American policy across the Middle East in a paragraph and explaining a thesis in a paragraph aren't the same thing. Why would you conflate them? Was it on purpose?

We faced this before with the Japanese, and their bushido warrior code of ethics. They had to face extinction to be defeated, but they WERE defeated and now their are among our greatest allies. To defeat the Jihadists we must convince them that we are utterly implacable and WILL do anything to defeat them. The object is NOT to convice the true believer of jihaid but to convice those the true believer depends on. You go after what supports them. Ruthlessly. At the same time those who do not support them are left alone. You induce fear into their supporters by making examples of SOME of them, NOT ALL. Fear is your ally and will help induce victory. Example would be this, say you find that Jihadists have been using a Mosque to hide weapons and use it as a base to conduct opperations. You then select the day that the mosque has the most visitors and destroy it utterly with all its visitors and without warning. You then destroy a randomly seclected number of mosques either at the same time or over a relitively short period of time in the same manner. If they use a school with young children you would do the same thing and attempt to make sure it was published far and wide. You not attempt at all to diminish collateral damage, I would in fact myself consider maximizing collateral damage. Imeadiatley after you destroy those mosque, schools, whatever, you announce that you will continue to destroy them without notice if you find they are being used for military purposes again. You do this sequence several times with other supossedly "offlimit" buildings structures places ect. you do this with a frequency that keeps pressure and minimises your resource expenditure. The idea is to make being around the Jihadists a death sentance for ANYBODY innocent or not. You make the people around your Jihadists aware that you are willing to make THEM extinct if they continue working with or for that matter tolerate the presence of Jihadists. This playes with their mind on several levels. It forces them to consider themselves and their families. It puts pressure on them to not assist the Jihadists for fear of harm or death. It brings a countervailing religous pressure becuase they begin to question their coarse and their leadership. You must bring fear into the equasion. They do not fear us now. The Russians could have won Afaganistan if they wanted to. They lost because they didnt have the will to do what was nessesary. It is a matter of will, for both sides.
    I don't think it will take all that many resources. We need to take away the things those in charge hold dear. For me that list includes their holy places, and their clerical structure. Your concept is similar to mine. Start large. Destroy Mecca. And destroy any mosque that has been used as a staging area for an attack on us.

    Do not kill people unnecessarily. But when it is time to kill then do it with gusto, imagination and firepower.
