The Will to Win




Unless you are willing to be as unreasonable and as brutal, as your enemy, do not engage him in a conflict — because he will win.  This old leatherneck says it better.

1A World War II veteran gave a cold, hard reality check when he overheard some people talking about ISIS and how you “can’t kill an ideology”, and how we should follow President Obama’s advice to fight them with diplomacy.




The conversation took place inside a bar, where the  II veteran overhead the conversation and had to put in his battle-hardened wisdom.

As told to the Dysfunctional Veterans Facebook page, the crusty old veteran unleashed this tidbit of knowledge:

“The hell you can’t.
Because we did it.



“These Muslims are no different than the [Imperial] Japanese.”




The Japs had their suicide bombers too. And we stopped them.




“What it takes is the resolve and will to use a level of brutality and violence that your generations can’t stomach.

And until you can, this shit won’t stop.



“It took us on the beaches with bullets, clearing out caves with flamethrowers, and men like LeMay burning down their cities killing people by the tens of thousands.

And then it took 2 atom bombs on top of it.





“But if that was what it took to win we were willing to do it.”

It’s a cold and harsh reality that war isn’t pretty or clean. Wars are terrible things that should only be entered into with good reason and the will to do what is necessary to win – whether that victory is over a nation, a terror group, or an ideology.

    By God, the old Veterans have wisdom; heed it!!!! This is not a war of choice, it is a war imposed on us by an implacable foe who will not stop attacking us until the last of them is apostatized or dead.

    Jihad is the Muslim’s price of admission to Jannah: Allah’s celestial orgy. Shirking is his guaranteed ticket to Jannahm, where he spends eternity having his hide brned off and replaced then burned off again and drinks boiling water.

    While they believe, they will never stop for long. Islam can not be defeated, it must be exterminated.


  3. I have been saying this for a very, VERY long time. “Nuke the entire Middle East AS LONG as the winds are blowing away from Israel.”


  4. I would venture to say the muslim jihad is worse than the Japanese, funny, JC we were just discussing this last night. Like hell we can’t fight it, yes we can, just ask Japan, which is why we won’t be doing that…just saying…no one wants to see that happen again. But, it must…just saying…2,000 yrs of this nonsense is enough, their not going to change and I am so tired of the nations changing to adapt to their ways.
