Mad Dogs of Darkness
Fighting a Holy War, or is it, A Wholly Unholy War
The West and really the whole world have failed to properly deal with ISIS and its brand of terrorism and terrorism in general. Terrorist that only spew hate are nothing more than Mad Dogs and should be dealt with just as you would a mad dog. You do not try to make friends with a rabid dog and you do not try to live in harmony with it. Your only option is to exterminate it. The only solution is to get rid of the problem.
What generally defines a Mad Dog is one that bites the hand that feeds it. By that definition ISIS is truly a group of mad dogs. They have no boundaries. They attack followers of Islam as quickly as anyone else. Suicide bombers show a total lack of respect for life. Which according to most faiths is a gift given by God and should be respected.
The true evil of the ISIS brand of hate that masquerades itself as faith was made clear to me when the attack in San Bernardino, CA took place. The Mad Dogs who performed this vicious act lived with and worked with the people they killed, for almost a year. They did not discriminate as they killed men and women, black and white, Asians, Indians and religious people.
Their actions bit the hand of the local Islamic community that took them in and supported them in following their faith. If the locals interviewed were telling the truth they never had a clue of the evil in their midst and did not and do not support the acts that they performed.
Some argue that terrorists are protected under the Geneva Convention. If my reading of Article III of the convention and the issue of Grave Breaches of Articles says they are to be found and punished for their crimes and are not protected from punishment. Based on my reading of Article III ISIS is in violation of the Convention and in my view should be exterminated just as they would be in society. They should receive capital punishment or at minimum removed from society and caged like the wild animals they are. They are not acting as soldiers but as hate filled animals that should be exterminated and removed from society.
All the nations involved in the actions which have created ISIS and all the refugees from the horrors of war should be responsible for protecting and aiding the refugees wherever they are. With at least five armies killing people in Syria, escape is the only way to save one’s life. If you think I am wrong. You have the Syrian Army, the Syrian Rebels, the Iraqi Army, ISIS Army, The Turkish military, the Kurdish military, The Russian Army and the American Army along with the forces of NATO. With all those groups bent on destroying each other, your only chance of survival is to get out of the line of fire, which means becoming a refugee.
Having spent thirteen years in military logistics and twenty years in trucking I understand one thing. No group survives without logistics. If you cut off their supplies they cease to exist. ISIS is no exception. They can practice San Bernardino type operations without a country on small scale and continue to be terrorists, but to field an Army requires, weapons, food and other supplies.
America and its allies need to develop what I call Rattlesnake Drones that strafe anything that moves in ISIS held territory. We should not see the ISIS pickup truck parades or any vehicles with ISIS flags especially American military vehicles. They should be strafed day and night till they do not exist and until they understand that the only ISIS that exist are dead ISIS.
Large parts of the world live under Islam, Indonesia is a good example. You do not see mass suicide bombings there. Sure it happens when outsiders come and do it, but is not the nature of Islam except in the Middle East. It is a product exported by the Saudi type of Islam. It is time for the world to call a spade a spade and turn its back on Saudi Arabia. Let them cut their own throats and sell hundreds of billions of dollars of American assets. It shows where their true loyalty was and is to the dollar. When they do it they will find you only make pennies on the dollar when you have a fire sale. It will cause world markets to collapse that will hurt them far more than us.
Destroying ISIS is as simple as making sure “NOTHING” goes into or out of ISIS territory. That includes people. Then apply pressure and it will blow away with the wind as it loses its support. You are either part of the solution or part of the problem. Any group or nation allowing supplies into the ISIS area should be treated the same as if they are a part of ISIS, cut them off also. No supplies, no bullets and no guns, mean no Army. That is logistics in action.
