Imperial Hubris by Anonymous (Michael Scheuer) is a book anyone interested in the war on terror should read.
This is a man who lived and breathed Usama Bin Laden and Islam for more than 10 years. He has a lot of interesting things to say. Some very
controvertial, but everything he says in the book makes a great deal of sense.
I was one who thought getting rid of Saddam and putting Democracy into Iraq (and Afghanistan for that matter) would be doing the world a great favor.
I still think that would be great, but sadly, impossible. The book got me thinking about things a little differently. That's what the author
wanted, I know.
I think the author is correct that the thing to do now is to become independent from desert oil, pull out of the middle east and let them fight it out
over there all by their lonesome. May the better man win.
The people over there don't want to be abused by their tyrants, but they don't want democracy either. I say bomb Iran's nuclear capabilities to
dust, ditto for N. Korea if possible and at the same time walk away.
If the Islamists still wanna fight, then we (U.S., Canada, all the Christian countries) take the boots to em like we did the Nazis and Japan. After
defeating them or at least bloodying them bad enough that they won't think twice about ever hitting the U.S. again, we just let them be.
Their problems aren't our problems. They are not like us, so screw em. The old rule to look out for number one is something to think about. My
family is much more important to me than any Islam believer that "might" want to hurt them.
It's time to wake up.
