As they promised they'd do, ISIS is attacking western countries and murdering as many as they can in their 'cause.' These are simple attacks and we are fortunate not to have had more. Radical Islam is determined to establish a worldwide caliphate and is and has been willing to kill on a widespread basis to make their point. They tell the world that Islam’s power and authority is absolute and all dissenting voices will be crushed. They seem to be delivering on that promise too.
Drawing from some astonishing lessons from the Pacific Island Campaign, and the ETO, I apply them to these regrettable modern events. A series of questions will cover some of the content in this hard-hitting free TNP video that addesses them: Can we defend, in THIS case, against Islamic mass shooters and suicide bombers? Have we been through this before and if so what did we do then? Are there differences between the morays of western vs eastern war waging? Would guns in the hands of civilianas in France made any difference? Is the European mindset so different in its approach to thrwarting violence against the good citizens?
Is America any different from all the other coutnries and if so why [Hint: it goes back a bit]? What good is a weapon system if it has no viable operator? How is the American gun culture so critical in protecting us from this? Would the introduction of personally carried weapons by civilians really change anything? Will these attacks increase in frequency, witll they come to the US, if so where? Will this threaten Rule of Law? Will they be effective? Can you prevent loss of life? Why did some P-47 Thunderbolt fighter pilots make up excuses and return to base on missions? Are candle light vigils, appeasements, and peace rallies historically proven to be effective foreign policy tools? Has political correctness historically survived the realities of war and was it helpful? Will this lead to a much broader and global conflict? And finally why is good advice to the terrorists not to piss off the little ole’ lady Kansas? All thisi is tied together in another Nutnfancy original Philosophy video.
