Bob’s Musings: Egypt, The Middle East, Mohammedism, And The Western Man’s Burden
-I never look forward to thinking about the situation in Egypt these days. It’s damned depressing. None of what seems to be one of the likely outcomes is in anyway heartening. The best, most realistic hope ― and this isn’t saying much ― is that a new Mubarak-like strongman smart enough to court The United States and Israel, backed by a reinvigorated Egyptian Military, arises and gains control, but I don’t see that happening. However, as Adobe Walls points out over at The Other McCain:
The Egyptian Military has been selling us out for decades. Mubarak’s son the one who was heir apparent was in the process of trying to give the civilian side of the government independence of and ascendance over the military. Absent “Arab spring” when Mubarak died there a high probability that there would have been a coup behind the scenes perhaps but a coup none the less. My biggest fear for Egypt is that in the inevitable chaos their pre-seventh century heritage will be lost or destroyed.
As I was watching a documentary on the search for more information on King Tut last night, this thought occurred to me: If the Mohammedins take power, they will eventually destroy the ancient Egyptian palaces, temples, and tombs because the Koran demands this. Ancient Buddhist statues anyone?
-It would appear that the Mohammedins will take power and the Muslim Brotherhood will be running the show.
-How did we come to such a pass?
Things were contained in that area of the world until the demand for oil and the discoveries of massive amounts of it in the Middle East were made. Islam had been thrashed by The West and was the Sick Man religion of the world. The way the Western powers handled the area after these events was what led to us being in the horrible situation we are in today.
We had the bastards under control, but we decided to become lax parents. And these children became spoiled and bratty. Unfortuately, when such behavior infects whole peoples, things get bloody and dangerous. And when the parents, in this case the nations of The West, lose their will to fight back, the children run wild in the streets.
-Here is the result of the debasement/destruction of the Pax Americana. The Left should be shooting off fireworks: through their Golden Child, they have removed America from it’s role as a positive force for good in the world, as the leader of the Free World, aka: The West.
-It may have surprised some that I would back a strongman type of rule in Egypt as I do carry-on quite a bit about ‘restoring our freedoms and liberties’, but the key word in the phrase is ‘our’. To me that word means, first and foremost, America. Secondly, it applies to the nations of The Anglosphere and, finally, hoping against hope and experience, the rest of The West. The principles that animate the English-Speaking Peoples do not often resonate with people of of other Cultures. Many are hard-wired [the Mohammedins more than anyone else] to view opposition to their worldview as impossible, the ravings of madman or servants of evil forces. Some people cannot be trusted with true Freedom and true Liberty. They must be ruled by a sovereign because, unlike us, they lack the necessary smarts to be sovereigns themselves, like we are. Those few in the Second and Third Worlds who think they can are more than welcome to come here [legally] and try The Western Way on for size. But the fact remains that most of the non-Western World’s peoples cannot handle what we have forged here.
-I’m sorry but I have yet to see any of the Arab nations/tribes show a single bit of appreciation for our ways of Freedom and Liberty. To the Mohammedin, ‘freedom’ is the ability to worship his god in a world without any other deities but Allah and ‘liberty’ is being excused from the obligation to wage Jihad because all of the Infidels have been eliminated. These kind of people will only understand the rule of an iron hand and it is in our best interests if that hand belong to a Shah or President-For-Life that is appreciative of the value of having, at the very least, good relations with The United States.
-The Founding Fathers feared Democracy because they understood that it was the rule of the mob and subject to easy corruption. The Mohammedins, the wiser ones anyway, embrace Democracy because they can manipulate the Muslim mob through appeals to Islam [which means ‘submission’] and because they re permitted to practice any form of corruption in pursuit of the ends as set forth by Allah ‘transmitted through’ Mohammed.
-As we seek to restore our freedoms and liberties here in America, we must also pick up once again The Western Man’s Burden.
Take up the White man’s burden —
Send forth the best ye breed —
Go bind your sons to exile
To serve your captives’ need;
To wait in heavy harness
On fluttered folk and wild —
Your new-caught, sullen peoples,
Half devil and half child.
Take up the White man’s burden —
And reap his old reward:
The blame of those ye better,
The hate of those ye guard —
The cry of hosts ye humour
(Ah, slowly!) toward the light: —
“Why brought ye us from bondage,
“Our loved Egyptian night?”
