Winds of War: The Most Committed Wins

When I started this blog a few years ago, I believed that all I and other anti-jihadi bloggers had to do was present the facts of the Islamist threat and people will be convinced of our position.

That was a pipe cream. Here’s what I mean.

If you ever get a chance to see an HBO movie called Fatherland, do it. It’s a ‘what if’ scenario of history. The movie takes place 20 years after the end of WWII. D-Day was failure and the Allies settled into a world where Germany - or Germania as it was called – ruled the entire European continent.

The occasion in the movie was the celebration of Hitler’s 75th birthday and the world press was invited behind the Germania Iron Curtain for the event. I won’t get into the details of the movie except for one scene.

The ‘good guy’ in the movie, an SS Captain, was speaking with an American journalist about the war.

She said, “You threatened to drop the atomic bomb on London.”

He said, “You dropped the bomb on Japan.”

She said,” We were fighting for our lives.”

He said, “So were we.”

So were we. So were we. A revealing response.

Whatever we thought about Nazi Germany, their evil beliefs and racist ideology as opposed to ours, those beliefs made little difference once the war started. At that point on, both sides were fighting for survival.

We are at war! And all discussion from the Left and the Right on what's morally right and what's morally wrong must cease. The prime objective is the survival of our way of life and the defeat of our enemy's.


This country is split 50/50 on what it thinks is the threat to our culture and our way of life. I have come to the conclusion that the hard core element of the Left, and there are many of them, those that see endless appeasement as the way to stave off the alligator at the door, will never, ever change.

Case in point is the pre-WWII neutrality movement called the America First Committee. On December 11, 1941, that’s 4 days after Pearl Harbour, the America First Committee leaders met and voted for dissolution - obviously. But they did take the occasion to show the true colours to America. In the statement they released to the press was the following:

“Our principles were right. Had they been followed, war could have been avoided. No good purpose can now be served by considering what might have been, had our objectives been attained...”

In other words, I’m right. Don’t confuse me with the facts of Pearl Harbour.

When the chips are down, it’s a waste of time to convince the inconvincible. Sure, there are the uncommitted that make up a large voting block in this country and could be swayed but you could easily call them the silently confused.

No. What’s left to win is what it all comes down to eventually. To quote the CIA agent in the move Siege, “Juts remember. In this war, the most committed wins.”

It matters not who's right or who's wrong. Who's more moral and who's not. Who's more ethical and who's not. Who's fair and who's not. Who's more religious and who's not. What matters in this war, like any one before it, is who's the most commited to defeating one's enemy.

Are we the most committed? Only history will tell.

  • My concern is that the West is not the more committed. Things haven't got bad enough yet for the West to sit up and take notice -- and commit itself to survival.
