Read Memo to Osama, now, as quickly as possible. Wretchard, writing as a member of Al Qaeda middle management, identifies western weaknesses that Al Qaeda can exploit in future. Money quote:
That leaves us with this tantalizing question. Having gone so far on September 11, can we not go further? Will one more push topple the rock? The answer is yes, but only if the push is sufficient and it leaves the Left which is the spirit of suicide, in control. This latter condition is essential. The fundamental fact is that the triumph of the Jihad must be momentarily preceded by the ascendance of the Left. Only the Left will pick up the gun, put the barrel to the temple of the Western mind and pull the trigger without hesitation. But their ascendance will only be momentary, and I for one delight in imagining how we will kick them as they squeal about their rights and their sexual entitlements once there is no one left to protect them.
Wretchard, in a much earlier post (back in March, if I recall correctly), accurately described the suicidal impulses of the Western Left. He described a situation in which Western leftists were surprised by the plentiful armaments and seriousness of purpose of the jihadists.
After you read the piece, you will once again return to the conclusion that the Left is not willing to defend that civilization that protected it, and gave birth to it. We shall examine this turn of events in the next post.
