Let’s Disobey ISIS

-By Gary Krasner

I’m sick and tired of idiots hosting talk radio urging everyone to watch the latest atrocious executions by ISIS.

“It’s important for everyone to see how barbaric these animals are”, they say.

No it isn’t. I don’t have to see a beheading, or someone burning alive, or someone getting skinned alive.

Just knowing that these atrocities occur is quite sufficient. i do not also have to view them to appreciate its utter brutality.

These are brutalities I never wish to become numb to. Or see again in my nightmares. Only a fool would.

ISIS WANTS us to watch it, because it wants us to be terrorized by it. To be revolted from it. And to remember the horror of it.

And by remembering the horror of it, it will affect our responses, perhaps making us more timid.

But regardless of THEIR reasons, our reasons to deny them their wish are abundant.

One reason to refuse to watch these staged atrocities is because ISIS WANTS us to watch them.

they’re our existential enemy. Why should we accommodate their wish? We should deny their wish, just to spite them.

Another reason, for me personally, is that I don’t wish my psyche and human sensibilities to be controlled by ISIS.

There’s a tactical reason for terrorism. The aim is to terrorize people, in order to immobilize them. Create fear and doubt, by making us horrified.

Why would anyone cooperate in their effort to do that to us?

How do you counter that in an affirmative way? Simple. You terrorize them. You torture them. Not for information. Just for its own sake.

In other words, get whatever intel you can, then torture them to death. Or execute them expeditiously and unceremoniously. Don’t provide a stage for their ideology.

But Gary, shouldn’t we give them a proper Muslim funeral and burial, as we had with Ossama bin Laden? Don’t we have freedom of religion?

And shouldn’t we continue to supply Quran’s and prayer rugs to detainees?

No, because these terrorists are not true Muslims. President Obama said so.

There is one more affirmative action that would absolutely terrorize jihadists. Indeed, you would see terrorist recruitment decline precipitously.

The Pentagon should announce that American guns and bullets will be lubricated with bacon grease.

I kid you not. That might even lead to their defeat. Because while Obama believes that they don’t follow true Islam, they sure think they do.

And all that matters is what THEY think.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. (from Sun Tzu, On the Art of War)
