#2 Neither is it a 'War on Islam'. For too long and too often it has been misleadingly described as such.
It is a war against a religious tyranny
And here we see the kind of intentional blindness and word games that refuse to identify the root cause. ISLAM is the religious tyranny and the tyranny is defined in the holy books.

#3 Three cheers for the late Colonel Y. Filmore Blake [USMA Class of 1880] and the brave lads of the Irish Brigade. Great railroad dynamiters they were.

#4 Our foe is every bit as ruthless as the Gestapo and every bit as devious as the KGB. Like Stalin and Hitler, the thugs who kill in the name of Islam seek to rule the world.
Some of the Irish seem to get it. Our forefathers came to America to escape the tyranny of the Church of England and to practice freedom of religion as outlined in our 1st Amendment. They didn't come here to be subjugated by Islam in the 21st century. The 1st Amendment is not a suicide pact.

#5 I have no problem with the Irish but their neutrality during WW2 was shameful.

#6 The Irish were rather annoyed at the British in 1939 and adopted the maxim of 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend,' and sat it out.
