#2 For those who only have memory, but no history, the military was actively employed pretty much continuously on the frontier from the inception of the republic till the late 1880s.

#3 The war with Islam is 1400 years old, off and on, so another 20 is a safe bet.

#4 In fact, Mohammed predicts (and advocates) war with the unbelievers until all are converted. That is why an Islamic country can never be at peace with a Christian one: there can only be hudnas (truces for a specific length of time).

P2K, I am in the middle of watching The Indian Wars. Quite a deal.

#6 I am convinced that there is a "global war of annihilation" ongoing between Islam, and everything that isn't Islam - and that war will go on until its ultimate conclusion: until one side is annihilated.

Unfortunately, only one side of that existential battle is fighting like they mean it. Even as backward as the Islamic side is, as the only side fighting for keeps, it is starting to look like they may end up being the last side standing.

I choose the word/concept "annihilation" carefully - because I think we are talking about a binary choice - and one with total extermination for the losing side.

The ignorant will chortle "there are 1.6 billion Muslims (or whatever the number), and we couldn't possibly kill them all ..." to which I reply "Sure you can; one at a time, in small groups, in large masses, with bullets, with disease, with clubs, with knives, with carpet bombing, with napalm, with nuclear strikes, etc. It will take a while, but we have the rest of our eternity to proceed with this grisly task, and the sooner we get started, the sooner that the pestilence of Islam will be wiped from the earth. As they say 'A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step'".

Battles of annihilation are not situations in which to take half-measures. We need to fight like we mean it. And - the first/best way to fight is to first inspire Shias and Sunnis to go after each others' throats - human wave attacks into machine guns are ideal - and (thankfully) those two barbarian beliefs are happy to slaughter each other wholesale, at the drop of a hat. Supply arms and ammunition to both sides - and let them mow each other down. When one side is wiped out in a given theater of conflict, we should provide transport to move the victors to a new theater of conflict.

My fondest dream would be to run a global recruiting program for Islamic terrorist, to whit: Join our jihad now. Sign up, and we will send you to Afghanistan (or the wastes of Somalia, or similar). You will fly first class. You will be picked up and moved to the training site in air-conditioned limos, with a favorite meal of your choice en route. We will issue you with a gold-plated AK-47 or RPG - your choice. At the training site, you will be housed in a grand, circular encampment, in an air-conditioned, first-class tent city. And - when the training center is full, there will be a grand prayer service at dawn, at you will have the honor of watching - far overhead - a flight of B52 Stratofortresses making their final approach for a nuclear bombing run to deliver this entire "graduating" class of jihadi wannabees to their eternal paradise.

Then - rinse and repeat. Ad infinitum.
