Silence and surprise

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

The Left media ignored it, and a few semi-conservative commentators tut-tutted when the Turks booed and declaimed Allahu Akbar during what was supposed to be a minute of silence for the victims of Islam in Paris. What did the experts expect? Common decency? Or at least civilised behaviour? After all this, they still haven’t read Koran?

The West has kept its pusillanimous silence for the last few decades. Soon it will chant Allahu Akbar as directed.

What a surprise! MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said :

Let me finish tonight with two numbers that don’t make sense,” Matthews said on his show before starkly contrasting the number of Syrian refugees — 4 million — and the number of Syrians recruited by the U.S. to fight the Islamic State — four.

Is there just one in a million Syrians willing to fight for Syria? Is that the deal? Is it?” Matthews asked. “Would just one in a million Americans be willing to fight for our country?…

Is it too much to ask that the Syrians lead the fight to retake Syria?”

Why bother to ‘retake’ dysfunctional and dangerous Syria when you can take over, without any physical risk, the defenceless, welfare-generous Europe?

UPDATE – An American taxpayer would be undoubtedly pleased to know that his super efficient Central Inteligence Agency under the wise direction of Hussein Obama spent $500 million to train and equip those four. Where they are at the moment only Islamic Horde knows.

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    With Obamoron, Merkela, Hollandaise, Turn&turnbull what do you expect? That it will be fixed at the next elections?
