Turkey defends against Islamic Caliphate
What do the Turks know about the Islamists that our head-in-the-sand elected folks don't? Or do our elected folks just want to destroy our national sovereignty ala the EU through NAFTA and the SPP (read here), and TAKE US DOWN? While we welcome imams into The House of Representatives to offer opening prayers, the folks in Turkey march and shout "the presidential palace is 'closed to imams'." [Turkish crowds slam Islamist candidate] The Turks who marched know absolutely with no reservation that, at its heart, Islam is a political ruling ideology not a religion. The Turks also know that "Turkey is secular and will remain secular." To me, the most interesting aspect of the article was the stance of the Turkish military in defense of the secular form of government: "the Turkish Army - which sees itself as defenders of the nation's secular tradition - issued a blunt warning against the drift toward Islamist rule." While the US Constitution clearly puts the military under civilian control and present-day politicians are hiding behind the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 and here to excuse using the military to defend us from invasion, the stance of the Turkish Army as "absolute defenders of secularism" against Islamists is refreshing. At least in Turkey, the people can rely on their military to defend them and their nation against the Islamic Caliphate which is on the move globally and is a far greater threat than the Religion of Global Warming which cloaks itself in the robes of reason and pushes for legislation to control our every movement. Either path leads to slavery. Oh, that our military would simply defend our borders and our traditions against what is rapidly becoming "mob" rule. Today, in the USA, it seems to me that we are living behind an extraordinarily thin veneer as our traditions of individual rights and liberties are being hollowed out by termites [disguised as bastions of freedom - the ACLU, CAIR, ad infinitum] burrowing through all of our strengths and turning those strengths into weaknesses to be used against us. Our individual rights are being gobbled up under the notion of group rights. And no longer do we have leaders who would drive 15,000 men across into Mexico to find the likes of Poncho Villa who was killing and terrorizing Americans living along the Rio Grande. I don't want to see our military marching through our streets arresting civilians, etc, but I sure would like to see them on our borders defending us. With real bullets and tanks with real armaments. The invasion is a great cover for the drugs and the drug cartels who effectively control the immigration policy of the United States along with Mexico who dictates our policy by denying its citizens the very "benefits" they seek here. Clearly, defense of our nation is left in the hands of civilians - grammy and grampa - see Cochise County, AZ and Pix & Reports from the Border!, thanks Annie for the Pixs. If the only deterent the Turkish people have to protect them from the establishment of an Islamic Republic of Turkey is their military, then hats off to the Turkish Army. Further, if a military defending Turkey's secular nation is what is keeping them out of the EU, then I say "Run, Turkey, run from any affiliation with the EU." The EU is on track to become the Islamic Republic of European States anyway and the EU itself is designed to weaken nations. While I don't think the European leaders who see the EU as accomplishing what Hitler couldn't are aware of how much the landscape will change when the Islamists destroy the Louvre and the art of centuries, these leaders have a rude awakening coming. No, Turkey would be well-advised to stay out of that corrupt socialist block - especially if the Turks honor their secular nation. And while our military men and women know their major role is to defend the United States of America and its people from invasions, the military serves under the command of leaders who have been working mightily over the last several decades to destroy our national cohesion and our national sovereignty - guess who's winning? Good luck and godspeed to Turkey's military in their mission of protecting Turkey and its people from the Islamic Caliphate. Again, they seem to know first hand what we cannot know and are unwilling to learn - Islam in the hands of Islamists is a political ideology. Can a Muslim country maintain its secular, democratic republic and keep its people out of the hands of the ayatollahs? Let's pray that they can.
