#3 So what is the answer, Skidmark?

#6 How, TW?

When a self-recruiting army has extra-regional resource pools with independent, individualized transportation and support logistics? Against such a beast the Clausewitz model fails unless it is moved into the conflict of commerce, as Trump has.

This is only one limb of the Black Knight however. The roots of the supportive idealogy must be cut out.
.Open the Mosques to inspection for arms and ordinance. Distribute the hoarded food, dilute their value.
.Execute the Imams calling for violence, start at the toes don't hunt for the heads.
.Constrain the casual mobility of 'conscripts' with travel permits and transportation tariffs to battle regions.
.Stop the tithing and neighborhood money export offshore.

Balance with education for all, equal rights for women and lawful protection for children.
End the cultural pedophilia, spousal abuse and drug agriculture.

All the right words, but somehow we just can't get them done for fear of 'what someone might think'.

How is your trip?

#9 Oh wow, Skidmark. That list is eerily similar to the interior agenda being carried out in India right now. Everything short of offing the imams.

The masjids that weapons or black cash is recovered from are also sealed indefinitely, tied up in litigation forever, ultimately appropriated by the state.

Shariah law practices like child marriage, polygamy, kangaroo courts and divorces made a non-bailable offence, each practice linked to their requisite similar criminal offences like statutory rape.

A non-state presence of communal vigilantism, alway attuned to the dynamics of their taqyia and ready to nip most activism in the bud. The state's reply is simply, 'Sorry if you infuriate the majority, we can't help you by jailing it now can we ? Best you play ball.'

That is only possible when you capture absolute power though (both houses and judiciary), the fear of explaining yourself then dissolves. Even if a State can establish that kind of control, the 'irreconcilably indignant citizen' element has to exist to support it.

#10 Thank you for sharing your thinking, Skidmark.

My trip? Lovely thus far. Trailing daughter #2 and Mr. Daughter, her husband — determined DINKS at this stage — had great fun introducing Mr. Wife and me to their virtual reality toys, which Mr. Wife greatly enjoyed...and I enjoyed watching. We’ve been trying out their favourite restaurants, requiring that tonight we’ll have salads instead. Texas-sized portions need no explanation, I suspect. ;-)

Td#2 and I no longer agree on matters political, though she did admit she would trust President Trump’s government to control driverless cars over her fellow Texans driving under their own control — because, she said, he wouldn’t bother to interfere with the population, whereas Texas drivers are dangerous even before some start shooting each other when they get mad — and she does not understand what a significant admission that is. Still, at her age I held similar opinions, outgrowing them only a decade later; and in her teens she was decidedly conservative as a result of hanging out at Rantburg, which gives her a more solid foundation for additional evolution than I had even without, God willing, another 9/11 to trigger a serious rethink. And her very tall husband is thoughtfully amused by us all — they picked each other well.

#11 Texas drivers may be dangerous but not when compared to driving Chinese housewives in San Francisco.

Or Somali taxi drivers in DC, for that matter.
