They've gone and done it again! This time they went for JFK International Airport in New York City. And this incident broke news right behind that hippie-cum-Muslim Perlman--no, that's not right, it's Gidahn, or something like that. Wait. He morphed again, into Aziza or something close to that. Well, no matter. We came not get a bunch of names just right but to extend a really warm "thanks" to all the jihadis of the world.
Jihadis, you have stepped in since GW Bush stepped away from your Islamic jihad campaigns, all the mini-9-11s about the globe, and all your good works in your enlightened lands. You have felt the need to get the attention of America since the 1970s, and goodness knows, you have tried very hard, with not much success. You have finally done it and without awakening a single U. S. president, the State Department, or DoD. That is skill on your part.
Since 11 September 2001, you have learned that America's civilian and military leadership have been "milling about smartly," as they would call it. Of course, those of us with a little science education prefer to call it "Brownian motion." You have correctly detected the moral uncertainty and moral cowardice of America's leadership. Finally you have come to realize that you will never "wake up" those zombies in D.C.
So, you have shifted focus to the American populace. Even that has not been easy for you. By the way, do you know why? It is because most Americans have a condition unofficially named "public school syndrome." It is a form of epidemic cerebral disuse atrophy that prizes ignorance and near illiteracy. You could chill out, lie back, and veg while this syndrome takes full effect and hands you the USA, but these results take time, and you are an impatient lot. Besides, an annoying number of Americans are not quite ready to roll over and play dhimmi, even though it seems like so many are ready right now.
With your big attack on in 2001, you expected GW Bush to rise up and strike you down, after fully mobilizing American might. After a few months, however, you realized that you faced no danger because Bush was both clueless and courageless. His chronic, recurring blunders in Afghanistan and Iraq and timidity before Iran and Syria told you that you could now get away with anything--and you have. You saw Bush being a good Christian "enemy," and that gave you security.
When you saw Bush go to sleep, so to speak, in his second term and start marking time until he could get the hell out of that awful White House, you knew you had to go to the Americans on the street if you were ever to be noticed by them.
And, boyt, have you ever been succeeding! Those Americans whose minds have not succumbed to public school syndrome have been reading and blogging about you and Islam. Still, their "Paul Revere's" have been taking much too long for you.
So, you hit upon getting expendible foils to light many brushfires. Take that group from the Caribbean, operating autonomously, perhaps. Once they had stirred the mainstream media, their usefulness was over. You know that you have legions of these Sunni and Shia foils all over the world, beginning for that sense of significance that making jabs at us gives them, and you. Your media savvy cohorts in Iraq followed right behind by brutally killing three soldiers who were shanghaied a few weeks ago. Brilliant: one stimulus right behind the other. A body can hardly keep up with them, there are so many. And, who cares whether Shia or Sunni?
You are doing what Bush, et al, have refused to do. You are awakening the ignorant. You are even getting the attention of those who will excuse anything you do.
We know that you think we common Americans are "'fraidy cats." Yes, many are. We know you think you can do anything to us. Yes, you can, right now, thanks to our own government. We know that you think we will never fight back.
No, here is where you are wrong. We are not Europeans.
Your sense of omnipotence and invulnerability are working toward their Waterloo. Our government and agencies--federal, state, and local--won't act. We will. We can; they won't. We will. By the individual, we are getting ready right now. We mean it; our government does not.
We are working up to demonstrating to you--and on you--what it is like to awaken the sleeping giant. (Then, we have to take that giant to the woodshed for a "talkin' to.")
Keep it up, though. We are not there yet.
