Arab Gulf States Have Hundreds Of Billions In Armaments, But Arabs Keep Demanding America Defend Them

Latest absurd whining demand from Muslim Arabs for American military aid, a bottomless pit, here.

by Hugh Fitzgerald

A governor in Anbar Province asks the Iraqi government to “demand” that the American troops come to the rescue of Sunnis in Iraq. Why should we? Why can’t the Iraqi army, police, the Shi’a militia who, all of whom amount to nearly a million men under arms, who have been supplied over the past decade with more than $25 billion in American military equipment (including top-of-the-line materiel left behind)  show they are capable of fighting on their own? And why should Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, the Emirates (the best of the lot), who have hundreds of billions in military equipmewnt, not give some of that not only to the Iraqis, if they need it, but to the Lebanese?  (Continued below the fold…)

This is a fraud and the people in Kobane are going to pay a price for his fecklessness.

Raymond Ibrahim: Does Obama Need ‘Time’ to Defeat or Forget ISIS?

During U.S. President Obama’s televised speech on his strategies to defeat the Islamic State, the president said, “Now, it will take time to eradicate a cancer like ISIL” (a reference to the Islamic State, or “IS). Now, why is that?

First, we know by “cancer” he is not referring to Islamic ideology—since he does not acknowledge that Islam has anything to do with violence and even banned knowledge of Islamic ideology from being studied by law enforcement and national security communities.

Were he referring to Islamic ideology, the need for “time” would of course be legitimate, to say the least.

No, the cancer he is referring to is the very real, tangible, and temporal Islamic State, which exists in time and space. Continue Reading »

Arab Gulf States Have Hundreds Of Billions In Armaments, But Arabs Keep Demanding America Defend Them

Well, one reason is that while these fabulously rich and well-armed states have the wherewithal in money and materiel, they don’t really want to help the Shi’a regime in Iraq against the Uber-Sunnis of the Islamic State. And they want the American army to fight the Muslims who, because they are true-blue undiluted Muslims, are a danger to the families who run Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, the Emirates, and whose behavior in the fleshpots of the West can be, and is seen, as not only “decadent” but also as “un-Islamic.” And that is what they dislike about the iIslamic state — not the killing of Christians and Yazidis, not the beheadings of Westerners, not the re-niqabbing of women who yesterday did not even wear a hijab, not the banning of music, not the spirit of complete and total submission to Islam in all its life-crushing nastiness, but only the threat to those ruling families and their courtiers.

This day’s news comes from Lebanon, where the demand is made that “the Americans” give more aid, beyond the $700 million in aid already given, to help a place called “Lebanon” fight the Islamic State. But why can’t such aid be requested from Saudi Arabia or Qatar or even Turkey? And if it is Hezbollah that is most worriied about the Sunnis of the Islamic State, why shouldn’t they call on, and be a burden to, Iran to supply materiel and perhaps even  men?

How is it that the Muslim Arabs dare to even think they can call on the United States to sacrifice its soldiers, and to keep supplying them with weaponry, which weaponry has an amazing way of ending up in the hands of the Islamic State?

The chutzpah, the cheek, the gall of it all, even if you do divide it in partes tres.

    How about you retain the ADF personnel you sent to FIX the ‘Death Cult’ ISIS (or whatever they want to call themselves – irrespective they are Muhammadans of ISLAM) in Australia.

    Now use the ADF personnel (purged of Muhammadans) to round up all the Muhammadans in Australia and (after they have been given the choice to leave voluntarily) expel or “expel” every Muhammadan invader in Australia.

  2. “I summon my blue-eyed slaves anytime it pleases me. I command the Americans to send me their bravest soldiers to die for me. Anytime I clap my hands a stupid genie called the American ambassador appears to do my bidding. When the Americans die in my service their bodies are frozen in metal boxes by the U.S. Embassy and American airplanes carry them away, as if they never existed. Truly, America is my favorite slave.”
