Mailvox: the foundations of Reconquista

Scott C wonders why Donald Trump is willing to call the Muslim world's bluff on Jerusalem:
what the hell was Trump thinking by doing something that he and his advisers had to know would trigger a third Intifada???
Who cares about another Intifada? Another Intifada would actually be desirable from the American perspective, and possibly the right-wing Israeli perspective as well. The West is dealing with a much more serious problem of Muslim invasion and needs to launch Reconquista 2.0 before the outcome of it is in any doubt. The worse Muslims behave worldwide, the better, as the harder it is for their (((advocates))) in the West to cover for their customary behavior.

Best of all, those (((advocates))) can't even object to the God-Emperor's action, because he is giving them something that they have publicly demanded for decades. It's a strategically brilliant move. Myanmar and China may be the first countries to be addressing their Muslim invasions, but they will not be the last. I see Trump's action to be following a strategy similar to that of Myanmar's. Pressure, provoke, and clean house.

From the headlines:
  • 'Death to America': Lebanese press issues threats after Trump recognises Jerusalem as Israel's capital, while Turkey says US has 'pulled the pin on a bomb'
  • Pro-Hezbollah newspaper al-Akhbar carried front page saying 'Death to America' along with a burning US flag
  • Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said US had 'pulled the pin on a bomb ready to blow in the region'
  • The Palestinian terrorist group Hamas last night condemned recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital
  • Islamists called for 'days of rage' and new 'intifada' uprising after saying Trump had 'opened the gates of hell'
If those headlines don't surprise you, why would you imagine that they surprise the God-Emperor? They are reacting exactly as he expects them to react. All you need to ask yourself is why he wants them to react that way.

Translation: distraction. I believe a war is about to begin. Most likely on the Korean Peninsula, although if that is the second distraction, we may be in for a bigger and more unpleasant surprise.

Trump’s forcing the hand of European nations to acknowledge the Muslim violence even if they do blame it on him.

Blogger Howard Stone December 07, 2017 8:16 AM  

I mean Europe will say thanks to Trump now these Muslims hate us and want to kill us, so we have to do something about it. but the thing is, they’ve always hated and eant d to kill us. Question is how will Europe respond. I’m bettting more appeasement.

They can't. The mainstream parties are already losing too much support to the nationalist parties. Note that the Czech Republic already followed suit and recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"Translation: distraction. I believe a war is about to begin. Most likely on the Korean Peninsula, although if that is the second distraction, we may be in for a bigger and more unpleasant surprise."

Surely Little Rocketman would have to make the first move. Lobbing missiles into the ocean is one thing, actually targeting someone another.

"If those headlines don't surprise you, why would you imagine that they surprise the God-Emperor? They are reacting exactly as he expects them to react. All you need to ask yourself is why he wants them to react that way."

I think he also wants to bust the western appeasement dam. There is a trickle, the Czech Republic backs Trump provisionally.

When the second Intifada erupted in 2000 (using Ariel Sharon's ascent to the Temple Mount as a pretext), Bill Clinton was president and Ehud Barak was PM. Enough said.

Bibi is pretty spineless (he has talked a good talk, but his actions belie his acceptance of the Oslo status quo and the two state solution), but Trump has done a good job of hemming him in. If war comes, it will likely be waged more fiercely than Protective Edge in 2014.

I have two sons in combat units. They are currently in the Shomron, and soon will be deployed to just outside Gaza. They have continued to train even after basic and advanced training were done. I pray constantly for their (and all our soldiers') well being and protection. I don't want to see them swept up in war, but if war must come, the terms could hardly be more favorable.

Related, perhaps Trump put the kibosh on the Saudi blockade of Yemen because Yemen is a distraction from the real fight to come in the Mideast?

Blogger Cataline Sergius December 07, 2017 8:27 AM  

There is another factor here.

Oil.

Up until recognizing Jerusalem as the capital was out because of what OPEC might do in retaliation.

Welcome to the world of 2018, OPEC can go f$#k itself with a razor. The Arabs no longer hold a petro-veto on American foreign policy.

In truth the only thing an embargo would at this point would be to force open more US territory for oil exploration. Dropping our domestic prices on crude and making us an even bigger exporter.

Blogger Resident Moron™ December 07, 2017 8:31 AM  

You lance the boil, it hurts like hell. But all the crap comes out in the open, and then it gets cleaned up.

That's my reading of it: Trump is deliberately provoking the religion of rest in peace, knowing their violent idiocy converts more onlookers to opposing Islam.

This is the flip side of the Pentagon's years of creating terrorists by fighting the war on terror.

Blogger dc.sunsets December 07, 2017 8:34 AM  

On a strategic level, there seem to be several choices:
1. do something.
2. wait for your opponents to do something, then react.
3. get your opponents to do something that puts them in a better position with regard to you.

This is #3. Ripping the masks of the leftist pedos makes "celebrating gays" and favoring the left (in general) a lot more difficult. Moving to Jerusalem rips what little mask actually exists off worldwide Islam.

We're finally seeing the forces of this war line up and don their uniforms. Until now, lots of people couldn't tell there's a war on because of the lack of clarity in a world where the enemy's forces are wearing civvies.

Eventually, in the eyes of people, even infants will be dressed in colors, "ours or theirs."

There are Nationalist forces in Europe. Trump can help them by releaving the pressure within the Middle East. Syria will be "over" by the middle of next year. I imagine forces have something planned to deal with the stuff going on in Africa.

Draining the Swamp includes Saudi Arabia and Berlin. Trump and his allies "get" that. It only gets worse for them when Trump's appointments have full control of the Fed.

Trump has China by the balls. They know it, too. He's given them outs, but they have to take them. China has already peaked in economic increase sense. (When you have to import food, you're on a timer. They passed that point a while ago.) China also screwed up something terrible by joining the SDR. Once Trump has full control of the Federal Reserve, China will have no power over anyone else.

China needs access to the US Market. World's largest market and world's largest importer. Wilbur Ross made his money in buying up Bad Debt and extracting value from it. Dude fits the "killer" tag to a tee. They can cut China off in a second if they're not playing along.

Trump does give an open hand to start all transactions, though. The Left refused, but China is having fits & starts to take it up.

As for Yemen, believe nothing. The Saudis have taken the concept of suppressing war information to its logical end. It's all lies, from the top to the bottom. Unless you're read-in on the current Intel, good luck having a clue what's actually going on there.


@14 dc.sunsets

It's also a stupidly easy "win" for Trump. Just like Immigration was in the 2016 Election. Trump also knows how the Jewish Finance class operates with regards to Israel. It's half instinctive support and half supporting forces that want to eliminate the place. Sometimes in the same sentence. It puts them in a bind.

And, like most things Trump does, the Left has literally called him a Nazi for moving the Embassy to Jerusalem and calling it Israel's capital. It makes them look as deranged as they are.

None of the big 3 want a nuclear DPRK under rocketman. US and SKorea would likely prefer reunification of the peninsula. China wants a buffer from US proxy SKorea. Russia has played that game in eastern Europe but otherwise doesn't appear to have nearly as much "skin in the game" as the US and China. That's why Russia is probably in the best position to act as moderator. The best outcome I'm hoping for when the dust settles is a Chinese sockpuppet regime in charge of NKorea until US forces exit SKorea, whereupon SKorea will assume the financial burden of reunifying the peninsula and modernizing northern infrastructure.

Zerohedge suggested North Korea as a distraction too, but if that's the game, it would have to be something that would last longer than a month. The Norks have less than two weeks of bullets and fuel. For their utter destruction, they get to obliterate Seoul. Something big and long lasting would be Iran.

A reunification of Korea will be a lot harder that the German reunification. I highly doubt that South Koreas democracy will be able to survive the cultural consequences of corruption in a post communist country. Especially if one is to consider South Koreas problems with corruption. And the costs? Germans reunification costs are estimated to surpass 2 trillion euro from 1990 to 2014. That is a hefty sum for SK to pay considering 2 trillion is probably a low estimate for the Korean reunification.

Tibet is where China gets its water. They'd have to be utter morons to give it up becausd 3 million Tibetans want to be independent (before being conquered by someone else) and no amount of money or international demands will make them. Taiwan is psychologically and politically important to China because it triggers their kneejerk anti-separatism reflex. Their internal problems are massive, even a mild economic downturn for them would cause severe problems, which is why their propaganda about national unity is so heavy handed. Thus far China is coasting on the 90s and 00s prosperity, but they're prepared to level Taiwan to prevent secessionist sentiment from fracturing their country if things ever get desperate enough. The Han are no more a single unified ethnicity than Africa is, and Beijing knows it.

What's likely happening is Trump promises to withdraw the bulk of the US forces from SK after Kim is obliterated. Economic deals behind the scenes have been struck and would be put into play afterwards, enough to give China breathing room. The US scales back its Pacific presence, Japan and SK don't get nukes, which is an implicit threat that China fears and Trump understands. I don't see Trump giving up Taiwan, but he might publicly advocate reunification with China if China strikes equally beneficial economic deals with us.

Or it could all end in one gigantic fireball. Who knows.

Blogger tz December 07, 2017 9:50 AM  

The two wild cards. First, Saudi Arabia that is undergoing a soft revolution, or at least a purge, but is still the center of Muslim worship. Note they seem to prefer fighting by proxy, so an attack on their oil depots or similar might start something. Second, Turkey, member of NATO, where Erdogan is going full Islam. What if Erdogan provokes Israel into attacking Turkey and he invokes Article 5? Meanwhile Iran is playing the long game as most toward the east do. In the middle are the Muslims that we are fighting for or with (or that is the tag like slavery in the war of Northern Aggression) might cause trouble. We need to get out of the Middle east and leave these barbarians alone to commit atrocities upon each other, not us.

As to North Korea, the south might lose its Seoul. If Dear Leader is targeting the US, someone needs to send him the electoral map and suggest the blue areas are best. Apple's HQ makes a nice Bull's Eye. Think of a suicide bomber with a dead-man's switch. Kim is neither stupid nor crazy, and even his evil is contained within something that is a different set of values. I doubt Kim can take as much innocent life here in the USA than Planned Parenthood (not even the entire Abortion industry) has. So be careful about praying for God's intervention.

"China" is actually ahistorically large and has been since the Communist take over. As mentioned, they need Tibet, but they don't need Taiwan. That's more of a USA vs Cuba situation. The ChiComs also lack both the sea-lift capacity and the will to ever take Taiwan by force.

There's also the Naval reality of the region. East Asia is the domain of the submarine. Taiwan has enough subs to shut down shipping into all of China, save the northern region. This is part of why the US backs Taiwan. It's that thorn in China's side that they can never remove without collapsing themselves.

As for North Korea, the clear play from Trump is to force China into removing the Nukes. Somewhere around 2014-2015 North Korea came under far more Chinese control. Something changed. (Not sure what.) Any time China needs some leverage, Kim does something. You can almost time it, at this point. Funnest part is that Trump is using his great relationship with Japan to tweak the ChiComs. No one wants Japan to go nuclear, but North Korea is escalating things enough for the Japanese government to be "safe" to do it. Though reality is that military strikes would happen before the Japanese are likely in a place to go for that.

All the pieces are being moved into position for war with North Korea.

If that is the case I suspect a lot of NK commanders are going to fail to execute orders from little Kim. China is probably quietly reaching out to them and pointing out that there is no benefit to them for killing Chinese soldiers and a whole lot of downside. Most likely a coup with backup from China, US, and SK to handle recalcitrant NK military units.

So? The concept of bankruptcy only exists within a political system than can enforce debts. There is no enforcement mechanism against the US. To the contrary, the US has nukes and stealth bombers and aircraft carriers and boomer subs. Debt collection is not an option.

As the old saying goes, if you owe the bank $10,000, they own you. If you owe the bank $10,000,000, you own the bank.

Fiat currencies are new territory. I'm starting to think of them as miniature shares of stock in the US. Whereas miniature shares of stock in Weimar Germany were not particularly attractive . . .

All Trump needs to do is pardon the Bundy family. It would signal the age of raping the real western landowner is over. Next pardon all victims of Mueller as victims of railroading, and set an inspector General on them with a bone in his teeth. That would signal the end of the obvious and illegitimate witch hunt. Third, come down hard on the out of control judiciary federal and state level. They've been held to no standards for so long those without strong values have become dangerous petty despots.

He can do this because Mueller et al. Have taken enough rope to hang everyone on their side.

If I still had my farm, the next year or so would be the time to start laying the ground work for a militant religious order dedicated to brotherhood and the good of all society.

Anonymous Sensei December 07, 2017 11:10 AM  

Taiwan is not part of China. Even China admits that Taiwan is not currently part of China in the pragmatic sense, which is half the Chinese sense. (the other half being the personal dignity sense, in which Taiwan's independent status is an unacceptable and inadmissible stench in Beijing' nostrils)

Something will probably have to change on that front within several years because Taiwan's own military force is no longer a real problem for China, but Taiwan's populace has assimilated the mainland nationalists of the Chinese Civil War and now the majority think of themselves as Taiwanese even over and above any kind of pan-Chinese ethnicity. So China "reclaiming" Taiwan gets both militarily easier yet more like a hostile invasion every year.

My sources for SA and Iran are mainly, Imperor_Rex3, ThomasWictor, and DrawandStrike, all on twitter, with Thomas being the most prolific on these areas. Thomas has said there is an ongoing, stealthy upgrade to Saudi Light Infantry, and their forces in general for over 5 years, and they have been using the Israelis to upgrade everything from the carriable special forces weapons to big weapons to next generation capabilities. They've paid the Israelis hundreds of billions to do this for them and the Israelis, all in secret.

They can use 6 sharply trained men with firepower beyond what use to take a whole company or more, and these guys are all Lind type Light Infantry, or special forces. The Saudis also have many interesting larger tools now, such as tunnel collapsing tools that can destroy large tunnels without going in, or microwave type tools used to force people in buildings or tunnels to surrender without killing them. In fact, the Saudis have developed state of the art non-lethal tools, as they have to deal with constant human shield situations. I've seen a number of videos of these new troops training or in action snuck out of the ME.

This could be all BS, and maybe all the Saudis are still fat. Yet if this is all correct, and my sources are not ignorant fools, then it will work like this:

A) The new Saudi forces will first take ot all the Iran proxies like Hezbollah and others the region.

B) There will be no war with Iran, as the Mullahs will be taken down by subtle operations of special forces. The Saudis now have Palantir to help on all their operations. You will not even hear about this stuff happening.

Please, supply me with better sources, as I may have been hood winked, but I am trying to get at the truth. Sincerely.

Yes, the troops used by the past were poor to bad, but did you not notice the new alignments? Has this been planned for years by some Saudis who now control the kingdom? Not saying these are good guys, just saying realignments.

Did you see Trump with his hands on a lit globe that looked like something out of Lord of the Rings? Palantir!! Why supply a weak country with state the art intel tools for finding Jihadists, if they are going to be promoting Jihadists?

LV was certainly an attempt to assassinate the new Crown Prince and maybe Trump. It failed. All those top floors of Mandalay Bay were owned by Prince Talad, one of the main guys who is said to have financed 9-11 along with Bush, of course.

A deal has been struck between the God Emperor, the new Saudi powers, and Israel to get rid of the Jihadists in the ME, and Palantir was part of that deal. The old Saudi regime that did most of the NWO bribes in the USA are all under arrest, and this lack of bribe money, along with decreases of bribe money from other sources is why NWO is falling apart here.

Prince Talad is the guy they hung upside down and tortured a couple weeks ago, and they also arrest at least 200 other Saudis. So, you're saying, "Business as usual?" Don't think so.

VD, I am just trying to discover what is really going on currently, as in things are moving fast? What advantages did the Hezbollah have over the IDF, head-to-head? In Lebanon, to my understanding they use a massive system of tunnels to their advantage. Things change at speeds total unknown today. My idea is the Israel trained Saudi Light Infantry have tools way beyond the Hezbollah now? Could they have intel and other weapons a generation beyond the opposition? I am not just arguing, I really want to know.

Blogger DonReynolds December 07, 2017 1:16 PM  

I have studied the history and nature of war for over fifty years, but I have not studied every part of the subject. I was mostly interested in certain aspects. One of those aspects was the two contrasting popular human reactions to the advent of war.

One reaction is called "War Fever", with broad popular support, even enthusiastic cheering, with long lines at the recruiting office. For them, war is not bad news but good news.

Another reaction is universal fear, dread, and anxiety, that often seems to manifest itself as "Defeatism". Perhaps more mindful of the intentional and unintentional costs of any war in terms of blood and suffering and destruction and loss. For them, war is not good news, only bad news.

The difference between the two seems to rest on a belief of whether war will lead to an improvement or not. That improvement may be justice or revenge or material conquest or political power or economic gain. Those who see no improvement by war may be more pessimistic about the outcome.

I was 17 when I graduated high school and joined the regular Army. This was at a time when many young people were opposed to the war and actively demonstrated against the war, which had been publicly debated and discussed for years already. For them, there was a third reaction.....they did not trust the leadership and so they actively supported the enemy cause instead.

Obviously, it was not a question of political party. The Democrats ran the war until January 1969 and the Republicans finished the war. They did not believe in the war because they did not agree with the war aims or the reasons for continuing the war. I believed there was too much that they did not understand and there were matters during wartime that they could not know as a matter of security. After all, "the truth during wartime is so precious that it must be protected by a bodyguard of lies." (Winston Churchill)

@81 On the plus side, the Israeli trained Saudis of the moment won't have to worry about killing Muslim human shields or other pesky rules of engagement; nor threats from a President Obama. So there's that. Doesn't make it a walk in the park, but it does take off some shackles.

@84 tuberman, two advantages Hezbollah in 2006 had were Ehud Olmert (corrupt doesn't begin to describe him) as PM and Amir Peretz (who was previously head of the Histadrut labor union and an unreconstructed socialist) as defense minister. IIRC neither had any military background to speak of.

The war was embarked on with little thought and no goal in mind. No one expected it. Even Hezbollah. The IDF was unprepared, ill-equipped, and poorly-trained for the conflict.

I know today that the government doesn't take Hamas very seriously at all. The only reason Hamas is still around is because Bibi didn't want to defeat them in 2014, because that would require Israel to reoccupy it (and of course, acknowledge Oslo as the dead letter it has been for years). They regard Hezbollah as a very serious threat, the only threat that really concerns them.

Oh, you have not addressed that, perhaps PDJT is an idiot too? Next time address the whole context of an argument, instead on a single disagreement, please.


I addressed what I intended to address.

I'm an infantry combat veteran who worked alongside forces in the ME, with training in the tactics and much of the equipment Wictor likes to talk about.

Wictor is so knowledgeable about warfighting and military tactics that he thinks fire and maneuver with small units is a recent invention by the Saudis, man. You ever thumb through FM 7-8? He clearly hasn't. Fire and maneuver is taught in basic training, and can be done with just two men if necessary, though that is obviously not ideal.

I wrote a much longer response taking down one of his recent particularly stupid threads but the form won't accept it for some reason. The fact is, Wictor sees genius in incompetence, because he has exactly zero experience. For example, this thread:

Link

He spends a bunch of time talking about how amazing the assassination of some Brazilian dude was. In fact, those assassins were half-trained thugs at best using a standard SA ambush tactic that requires very little skill to pull off. Here's a link to the video: Link

Watch it from about 35 seconds. See that rifleman Wictor is gushing over? He's untrained. He has terrible technique, and is slow and inaccurate. He's not shooting the target in the legs because he's elite. He's doing it because he's point shooting with his head up and not even tucking the rifle properly. He's not aiming. See how the rifle is jerking around like a spastic wallaby? Proof that he doesn't know how to hold it. That "amazing" reload? It's a really crappy retention reload that takes twice as long as it should and requires him to drop the rifle to a useless position. I could teach anyone to do it better than that, and faster, in just two hours even if they'd never held an AR-15 before in their lives.

This is Karl at InrangeTV shooting a drill: Link See how the rifle barely moves? See his stance? Here's a later drill, where Karl dumps 10 rounds in 2.17 seconds: Link I am sure you can see the difference between the hitman and Karl. Karl knows what he's doing.

He regularly gets trivial technical details completely wrong, like thinking a TOW missile can do a freaking hairpin turn and hit a precise spot on a truck when it's traveling as fast as a handgun bullet over a short distance. And don't even get me started on his "strategic special forces" bullshit. That shows a complete lack of understanding of military structure and logistical requirements. It might make sense in a domestic enforcement role, but for fighting a foreign war? No.

There's a reason veterans are always hopping into the comments on his tweets to point out his errors. Well, they used to. I hear he blocks dissenters who catch his notice because they're just haters.

China is very short the U.S. dollar. The yuan is supposed to be backed by the U.S. dollar. At the peak they had about 23 yuan in circulation (M2) for every $1 in foreign currency reserves (not all USD). Now they're at 53 and that doesn't include the shadow banking growth. (Exchange rate is 6.6 to 1. They don't need to cover 100% of M2, but they need enough reserves to be a credible threat to speculators.) A bailout of the financial sector will push this number much higher.

Another way to look at it is reserves are down to 12.5% of M2 based on the current exchange rate. The Thai baht and other collapsed currencies in the 1997 Asian Crisis had higher M2 coverage. These numbers are not important unless and until there is a crisis.

In addition to the financial system, China made large investments in commodities, it has large amounts of debt backed by physical assets, it has a real estate bubble. Using Steve Keen's simplified debt model, China is assured of having a major economic slowdown if credit growth slows. If the U.S. Dollar Index breaks out to a new high, that alone might be enough to send China into a crisis.

US dollar bull market begins in June 2014. China "surprise" devaluation in August 2015. Global commodities collapsing into early 2016. China pumps massive amounts of credit to avert a crisis. They started tightening this year, the effects started showing up in September and October and will intensify in 2018. Notice copper and iron ore prices lately? Chinese equities?

Right now they are slowing credit growth, trying to manage a delicate wind down of the credit bubble. China needs things to go perfectly, it needs help from Europe, Japan and the USA to keep global growth going while they tighten.

Saudi Arabia has always had the best equipment that their money can buy with US permission.

And that means nothing, because the people using those weapons don't fully understand them and also think like jihadi warriors rather than disciplined soldiers. Sure they can be trained, perhaps very highly, but in a real life stressful and sustained operations, their base culture will be difficult to keep from coming to the surface.

On the other hand, Israel used to be the tough, tenacious, highly disciplined and innnovative soldier. I wonder how decades of peace and soft living have dulled the edge of that discipline. As can be seen in their scandals of female troops misbehaving and other signs of slipping mission focus.

Over in a flash the way the first Korean War was? The way the Afghan and second Iraq wars were? The way WWI and the U.S. War of Northern Aggression were? History is full of wars that took WAY long and cost way more lives than were predicted by even the pros. Shorter, not too often.

How is it that "the best light infantry on the planet" needed 5 years and the combined effort of 3 armies (Russia , Iran , Syria) to defeat ISIS goat boys ?
