1. Why the West Loses.
“Muslim zealots are winning today because they have better politicians, better generals, effective tactics, superior strategy, and crystal clear objectives.”
“Al-Qaeda’s No. 1 leader, Ayman al-Zawahri<http://www.news.com.au/world/breaking-news/nusra-front-can-drop-links-al-qaeda/news-story/09f81a554ac97a63f73a3a22f3a49ea3>, added, that the brotherhood of Islam … is stronger than any organizational links.”
Tactics and alliances might vary, but the strategy of “jihad” and the links within the “brotherhood of Islam” are global constants. Islam is not parsed by Muslims. Only infidels are naïve enough to believe that Islamist factions have significantly different core goals and objectives.”
“If the Coalition on the Defeat of ISIS were real, to say nothing of effective, it would be called a coalition to defeat Islamism, not ISIS. ISIS is just a single facet of a global Muslim threat that flourishes in dozens<https://www.state.gov/j/ct/rls/other/des/123085.htm> of branded militant organizations, in hundreds of terror cells, and under uncounted ideological covers<http://dailycaller.com/2013/09/21/cair-collects-millions-from-foreign-donors-thanks-to-non-profit-shell-game/2/>.”
2. MIT Press Publishes ‘Communism for Kids’ Book
MIT Press is out with a new book that teaches children the tenets of Karl Marx with fairy tales. Communism for Kids<https://www.amazon.com/Communism-Kids-Press-Bini-Adamczak/dp/0262533359/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1491847605&sr=8-1&keywords=communism+for+kids>, written by a German author who specializes in political theory and “queer politics,” was released last month. The thesis of the children’s book is that communism is “not that hard,” but has not been implemented in the right way.
3. Has Trump Become a Globalist?
The article, by Mike Patricks, in The League of Powers, sheds more of the badly needed light on President Trump’s missile strike on a Syrian air base. The article presents a wide array of important contributing factors that are non-dispensable for those attempting not only to assess the validity of the recent strike but also the long lasting turmoil in Syria and the region.
“The “facts” in the news about this event are murky. Starting with who committed the attack and why. There’s little evidence one way or the other over whether it was Assad’s forces that perpetrated the attack or soldiers loyal to ISIS and/or other groups such as the al-Nusra Front, a group that’s essentially al-Qaeda by another name.”
“The opposition to Bashar began in earnest in 2000 because he had cracked down on political agitators in his country affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood. In short, equating Assad with Saddam Hussein (or another area strongman, Libya’s former leader Muammar Gaddafi) is false; Assad is much more intelligent, worldly and wise.”
