"Let me say this... and I don't care about being popular or whatever. First thing you have to do is study and understand who you are up against.And you must realize that this is not a religion you are fighting against. You are fighting against a theopolitical belief system and construct. You're fighting against something that's been doing this thing since 622 a.d. - the 7th century - 1388 years...
You want to dig up Charles Martel and ask him why him why he was fighting the Muslim army at the Battle of Tours in 732? You want to ask the Venetian fleet at Lepanto why they were fighting a Muslim fleet in 1571? You want to ask…the Germanic and Austrian knights why they were fighting at the gates of Vienna in 1683? You want to ask people what happened at Constantinople and why today it is called Istanbul because they lost that fight in 1453?
You need to get into the Koran and understand their precepts, you need to read the Sira, you need to read the Hadiths. This is not a perversion. They are doing exactly what this book says."
And Col. West reminds us of what should be self-evident, contra the willfully blind, delusional apologetics embraced by our current political and military leadership:
"Until you get principled leadership in the United States of America that is willing to say that, we will continue to chase our tail, because we will never clearly define who this enemy is, and then understand their goals and objectives—which (are) on any jihadist website—and then come up with the right (and) proper objectives to not only secure our Republic but secure Western civilization."
Lt. Col. West is running for Florida's 22nd Congressional district. Support him!
