Subject: Schoomaker gets the right analogy on terror

Schoomaker nails it on the head: Fighting against the present day jihad is like battling cancer, where the Islamic world is the patient. Bring on the chemotheraphy! You can't stop cancer completely, but goddamn it still has to be frustrated.

>>You can't stop cancer completely,<< Oh yes you can! The only consideration is if killing the patient is acceptable! Thanks Trigga I agree the cancer/islamist analogy is deadcenter! BTW, I may reintroduce it over at the "Respect Islam" thread... OW

Not only that, the jihadi cells (pun here) attempt to turn non-initiated co-religionists into replicants of themselves through skillful use of propaganda and power demonstrations. The Arab world is too sick to totally change for the better- but the West can do better strengtening ties with those who haven't gone under the same way like India, Malaysia and Indonesia. Ever read Ralph Peter's 'Rolling Back Radical Islam'??? Available in the archives of Carlisle's Parameters online page.

I've always believed cancer was best treated with a protocol, or the right mixture of chemical, radiation, and good old-fasioned "physical" therapies..

The deeper one looks into the religious systems of the world, the more one realizes that "cancerous" behavior abounds everywhere; denial being a major issue of cancer victims. You don't want to believe it's happerning to you, and you try and act like you may be invincible to it once you're diagnosed. There are throughout history just as many "cancers" in the history books of Christianity and Catholicism as there are now in Islam. Turning one's back on cancer and believing "god" will eliminate it through faith doesn't work when you and the cancer don't take belief in the same god. The cancer must be cut out (military action), then chemotherapy (education) must be administered for a time to prevent it from taking root again and spreading. America has had its fair share of cancers as well. We just have learned over the years the best methods of treating it..
