Amanpour: This isn't about 'our way of life'
From a story located at:
by: By Christiane Amanpour, CNN Chief International Correspondent
Regarding the murders in Nice, France.
Amanpour quoted a French politician as saying,
“Perhaps the most profound reality check came today from French Senator Nathalie Goulet, vice chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee.
She told me "the message of the day is no-one can prevent this. No state of emergency, no police, no special powers."
She said France has done everything it can, thrown as much law enforcement and as many emergency measures at the crisis, and yet it's happened again. She says there is no more secure city than Nice, as both the mayor and the president of the regional council have stepped it up massively with surveillance cameras, facial recognition technology, police -- the works. In Goulet's words, "we are already at maximum security, what more can we do?"
What more can we do? The unthinkable is just around the corner.
Then Amanpour went on to write,
“I do not believe this is about terrorists attacking "our way of life, our values, our freedoms," which Western leaders say as they vow to continue the fight against terrorism. While they lash out at us, they kill many more of their own. This is war by a totalitarian movement that wants to dominate Muslims and anyone else. Surely they have to be defeated; surely it's now or never; surely an offensive equal to the threat must be mounted”?
“Surely an offensive equal to the threat must be mounted”? She is entertaining the idea being spoken of, by the more militant sectors of Western society. Unable to stop senseless murder of civilians in Western Cities, genocide of the Arab world is a distinct possibility.
In American politics, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear Donald Trump threaten genocide if an American city suffers a million deaths. I would venture to say millions of Americans would be in favor of a massive nuclear strike on the Muslim world if America is attacked. Many Americans are in favor of the genocide of Muslims.
Before you accuse me of wanting genocide, hear me out. We are witnessing a movement emanating out of the Muslim world that will eventually kill millions. Right now, their capabilities are limited and they can only kill small numbers in any single atrocity.
However, it should be pretty evident there are Muslim elements working very hard on ways to kill more in the Western world. Unless there is a change of heart by Muslims, they will succeed in killing millions. It is only a matter of time.
When the day comes a terrorist attack wipes out an entire city, killing a million innocent people at one time, genocide will not seem out of the question. If it is proven ISIS is responsible, there is no guarantee Putin will hold back if a Russian city suffers a million or more casualties.
It’s just a matter of time when a city like Paris is obliterated and several million Frenchmen are killed. France will most assuredly entertain the idea of genocide against the Arab world.
During the Cold War, America and Russia were prepared to commit genocide with their nuclear weapons. Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) prevented the destruction of the human race. It may be necessary for the Muslim world to understand what MAD is all about. If the Muslim world kills millions, they may need to suffer the same.
As long as the terrorist attacks are small in size, the Western world will continue to handle the problem with kid gloves. It won’t be until something really big happens when Westerners take their gloves off and Muslims discover how ruthless Western powers can be.
However, make no mistake about the consequences of relentless murder. The kind of terror attacks we are witnessing today and the potential for much worse in the future will cause the genocide of the Muslim world.
It’s just a matter of time. It’s coming. Prepare to shed tears.
Incidentally, I do not advocate genocide. I just think it is inevitable.
