Wahabism Delenda Est.

I will take this time to thank Al-Qaeda.

For snapping me out of most of my funk.

What follows is, for me, a rant. You want more subtlety, nuance, and no ugly pictures, go read Michele. We both reach the same conclusion, however.

Wahabism Delenda Est.

DUBAI (Reuters) - Al Qaeda's leader in Iraq beheaded an American civilian and vowed more killings in revenge for the "Satanic degradation" of Iraqi prisoners by U.S. soldiers, an Islamist Web site said on Tuesday.

Us, on a bad day.

Them, apparently on what they see as a good day.

Nick Berg is not the first. He won't be the last.

Contrary to the videotaped boasts of his killers, the gruesome beheading of 26-year-old Nicholas Berg had nothing to do with the Abu Ghraib prison scandal and everything to do with the barbaric, pathologically anti-Western nature of militant Islam...

...And what about the countless beheadings perpetrated by the al-Qaeda-linked Abu Sayyaf group on non-Muslims over the past several years in the Philippines? The murders of American citizens Guillermo Sobrero (who was beheaded) and Martin Burnham in 2001 and 2002, respectively, by Abu Sayyaf guerillas were committed well before the U.S. invasion of Iraq last March.

There are also the scores of maimings and dismemberments — many of which are readily accessible for Internet viewing — that have been administered by Chechen Islamists on Russian troops in the course of their ongoing battles during the past decade. A good number of these atrocities took place when Abu Ghraib was still supervised by Saddam Hussein's Baathists (who, judging by recent media accounts, must have run a sandy social club compared to the hellhole overseen by the ruthless Americans).

Mr. President - when are you going to ask us to do this?


Wahabism Delenda Est.

These people, the leaders, just need killin'.

"Civilize 'em with a Krag."

Let's help make the fertile crescent fertile again. Make Wahabists fertilizer.

Not Muslims. Not Sh'ia, or Sunni - just the Wahabist strain.

Root and branch.

Twig and leaf.

This isn't hate. It isn't a call to genocide. It isn't a call to convert to another religion. It is, however, a call to extirpate the cancer of Wahabism. Just as the Christian church tamed the Inquisition, so too should the Muslim world tame Wahabism.

Berg's murder plainly illustrates the most salient distinction between the Coalition and the terrorists. The outrages at Abu Ghraib were not sanctioned by higher authorities, and were halted when they were discovered. An investigation followed, and those who committed the acts may be facing jail time — a court will determine that. The terrorists on the other hand killed Nicholas Berg while executing their official policy. They justified the ritualistic slaughter of an innocent man as an act of revenge. We consider the humiliation of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib shocking; the terrorists consider sawing off the head of a helpless, innocent man an act that bestows glory unto their god and their people.

And if they won't, let's do it for them. It's what they intend to do to us. Convert us, or kill us. Fuck 'em. I ain't signing up for that.

Forgiveness is God's job. Let's arrange the meeting.

Wahabism Delenda Est.

Sorry, Boudicca. It's just something I had to say.

Sorry, Jack. I think this one will make you sad and unhappy.

Wahabism Delenda Est - modfied from Cato's "Carthago Delenda Est."

Carthage must be destroyed. And Rome did so. And Carthage never bothered Rome again.

We don't need to go the level of killing all the men, and selling the women and children into slavery part. Nor do we go to the "leave no stone on top of another", plow it under, and sow it with salt.

Wahabism isn't a place. It's a concept. And even if you think that capitalism and free markets and western civilization in general is just one step removed from the most horrible thing on earth - Wahabism is arguably that one step further. And, like Nazism, and Stalinism, and Leninism, just needs to go away.

And making the leaders fertilizer is a good start. We didn't have to kill every Nazi, we won't have to kill every Wahabist. But we will have to kill the right ones. And that's going to mean taking out other people who chose to put themselves in the way. And losing some of our own.

But this isn't going to go away until we surrender or Wahabism is dead.

Yes, Virginia, it *is* a war of cultures.

Rome was sacked by the barbarians. These barbarians want to sack us.

Fuck 'em. Make 'em fertilizer. They aren't interested in reason. And, like the barbarians who eventually sacked Rome, they aren't going to be satisfied with tribute and appeasement.

Which is the Kerry solution, however else he chooses to express it. Which is the European solution.
