The U.S. national government’s war against the Islamists – overseas and perhaps at home — is clearly lost, and just as clearly out of either its control or the control of any Western power or Russia. As [Western and allied political elites, including NATO] remain bore-sighted on Iraq and Syria, for example, Islamist forces – both IS and al-Qaeda – are gaining power in the Balkans, the North Caucuses, Egypt, Indonesia, Malaysia, Yemen, and Pakistan, and are building manpower and organization in Europe, western China, India, and Bangladesh. Moreover, IS and al-Qaeda are waging war and contesting for power in Libya, the other North African states, West Africa, Somalia, Kenya, and Tanzania, and appear to be gaining toeholds in central and Southern Africa.
A three-continent war against the growing Islamist movement is something only a delusional madman would want to ensnare the republic… Fortunately, the entire…mess can be sidestepped by the national government if it would do the only thing it is elected to do – protect America and its citizenry first and stay out of other peoples’ wars.
The first requirement of that duty is fourfold; (a) close and control U.S. borders; (b) end all immigration to the United States for five-to-ten years, thereby negating the simpering, teary-eyed cries of discrimination made by clueless [U.S. political elites]… and most pundits and academics; (c) bring U.S. forces home to prepare to fight the Islamists domestically in what will be a tough, costly struggle against a foe that already has killed or wounded many more U.S. civilians inside the continental United States than were killed in all of America’s wars since 1917; and (d) urge all Americans to arm themselves with the most powerful weapons they can afford, having seen how [the current] administration has made it impossible to cope with the domestic Islamist threat via law-enforcement agencies alone.
