The Bottom Line.
This is a good article over at The Conservative Voice. Personally I think Hezbollah and the rest of the Middle East is laughing their ass off right now. Our concern for their manufactured hardships was easily predicted and shows our weakness. Yes we are being played like a fiddle.
The Conservative Voice: In this brave new world of political correctness and human rights for Islamic terrorists who have vowed to destroy Western civilization and all who adhere to civilization in general, only terrorists are now being given the green light to wage war. The arguments (AKA excuses) for this insane line of thinking are few and tepid. But, they are apparently powerful enough for those who continue to maintain a hatred for the Western world and a love for the “poor oppressed terrorists” in our midst.... ...The Israeli airstrikes against Hezbollah rocket launchers in the village of Qana resulted in over 50 women and children, located in an apartment building, being killed. But, it appears that no men were killed. Hmmm. Interestingly, this is a standard terrorist Hezbollah tactic. It removes the men (so that they can continue to fight with Hezbollah) and leaves women and children for “collateral damage”—to be used as a public relations’ ploy for the world press. It worked and continues to work to Hezbollah’s advantage. Hezbollah was and is not blamed—only its victims (in this case Israel) are. The leftist mainstream press drinks long and hard from the wine Hezbollah and other worldwide terrorist organizations provide to them and then proceeds to become drunk on it. The bottom line? Only the terrorists should be allowed to fight. Yeah. That should do it!Remember Muhammad's words, "War is Deceit!" Related at Rhymes with Right. Hat Tip: Master Vinnie.

This should be so easy: Democracy over dictatorship. Liberty or death. I do not understand the mystery. I see no nuance here.
Maybe something breaks inside when people live comfortable lives. Maybe the Light has to endure a new Dark Age before we regain our senses. Time to re-read Heinlein, folks. We are going to need the advice.

BTW I would like to see where feminists are saying the burka is respectful and acceptable. That would be an interesting read depending on who said it.

I'm atarting to think that fear is driving the appeasement and denial. We are soft.
And who wants to enter a nightmare when we're having so much fun?

Sun Tzu came up with that baby about 1000 years earlier. "All warfare is based on deception," sayeth The Man.
He also said something about attacking your enemy's weakness, and the biggest weakness of the West is their compassion. It's also a weakness they can depend on to be there tomorrow because even secular Westerners build their identity on it. If Western tanks had some weakness that allowed them to be knocked out, that weakness would soon be recognized and the tanks modified to erase it; but the when the weakness is kindness they will not modify their philosophy to protect themselves. You can resign yourself to watching your countrymen get jerked around by Hezballah's ilk for as long as they can show raw bodies to the camera crews.

I am relating what I am personally hearing from some nominally feminist women. I am not alone in hearing this kind of talk. Writing for The Age a couple years ago is Monash prof, Karen Green. "The burqa stripped bare" describes how her sister's greatest act of rebellion against her tolerant family was to become a Muslim. Shades of John Walker Lindh. I expect we are going to see much, much more of this in the coming years and decades.

Fight harder, now, or you will cause the whole world to suffer in your defeat. You can't fight like a bunch of limp-wristed liberals, and expect to win.
