Brief musings tonight on some possible directions yesterday’s events might serve as a propellant toward. You’ll note I don’t often succumb to optimism, and nothing mouthed by any Western European leaders has steered me toward it in the past day. I have come to think most will ultimately be as receptive to popular will as Ceaușescu.
Given that our states are powered by a perpetual mendacity motion machine, we should presume that any tragic conflagration will be used as pretext to do exactly what was already intended, though now with greater urgency. That events would logically compel a completely opposite reaction is beside the point.
If we don’t replace you now tout de suite, the terrorists will have won.
Thus I find it as equally likely that Cameron, Holland, and Merkel, Europe’s Junta of Whores, will maintain colonization as temper it. They may not. But as long philosophical tracks have been laid, they may. And any flippant pretense will suffice: Our values of human dignity demand we remain strong in generosity to honor the victims of extremism.
But the rubes won’t simply sit for the invasion quo; they’ll want action. And by God they’ll get it. Thus it is easy to envision yet another middle eastern joint military expedition. This time to depose Assad, who is a monster for being disliked by Israel without nuclear deterrent. Of course we can exhale in relief that no Israeli personnel will actually be put in harms way, with coffins and crumpled bodies returning exclusively to respite in America’s rural South and Midwest.
Those soldiers won’t be the only ones chagrined, obviously. Some unknowable number of Arab ululators will be reduced by American ordnance to a sandy pink slurry. Fortunately many millions of their fellows will be spirited to safety in Munich and Stockholm, where the conflict may be continued in more intimate quarters. This will result in very large swaths of vacant Levantine real estate that certain regional developers would hate to see lie fallow. Thus expansionary ambitions could become feasible at quite low costs–for those nations with the ambition.
Other ambitions, such as the one on display Friday night in Paris, will also grow increasingly feasible. And as a result increasingly common. That could trigger a domestic war…against “anti-islamic activity.” If a Frenchman falls in the street, does it make a sound if no bigots are online to talk about it? The JoW thinks not, and so will their decreasingly speech-tolerant security services.
I believe the present crop of Western European leaders are wholly invested in the dissolution of their nations. A course they are unlikely to be dissuaded from without viable fear of the gallows. Europe has very little opportunity remaining to defenestrate these figures within the electoral framework. After that, it will be submission or war.
