The Terrorist Question

I recently ran across this story.

“Just before World War 1, there were a number of terrorist attacks on the United States forces in the Philippines by Muslim extremists. General ‘Black Jack’ Pershing captured 50 terrorists and had them tied to posts for execution. He then had his men bring in two pigs and slaughter them in front of the now horrified terrorists. Muslims detest pork because they believe pigs are filthy animals. Some of them simply refuse to eat it, while others won’t touch pigs at all, nor any of their by-products. To them, eating or touching a pig, its meat, its blood, etc., is to be instantly barred from paradise (and all those virgins) and doomed to hell. The soldiers then soaked their bullets in the pigs blood, and proceeded to execute 49 of the terrorists by firing squad. The soldiers then dug a big hole, dumped in the terrorist’s bodies and covered them in pig blood, entrails, etc. They let the 50th man go. And for the next forty-two years, there was not a single Muslim extremist attack anywhere in the world. Maybe it is time to for this segment of history to repeat itself, Maybe in Iraq? The question is, where do we find another Black Jack Pershing?”

Which makes me think:

The real question is: Where do we find an American Public with the stomach to allow our military to do what’s neccessary to win. And how do we neutralize a media that is only interested in our defeat?

The only way to defeat terrorism once and for all is to PROVE ourselves even more ruthless and cold hearted than those who would attack us. Because of my strong belief in States Rights I sympathize with the Confederacy (I am in NO way comparing those late patriots to the cowardly scum bags we now face. That is, if they would face us). I will, however, give credit to General William T.  Sherman, his concept of Total War, and his Scorched Earth Policy. Action’s based on these principles broke the back of Southern resistance, and it would be useful for today’s civilian leadership to give today’s military leaders the same latitude.
