McChrystal Unclear

I think it's best if you keep it shut, Stan

In this article at the Washington Post, we are treated to the "wisdom" of Stanley McChrystal, the commander of US forces in Afghanistan.

McChrystal's willful blindness to the hard realities of Islam is painfully clear. Having originally decided that the best course of action was to win the Afghans' "hearts and minds", which didn't work because Islam teaches hatred of non-Muslims and the Afghans are particularly devout in their Islam, Stan The Man Without A Plan has now turned his dull eyes to giving the people "'trust and confidence' in themselves and their government." Which means, in essence, nothing at all.

Then - and this is the real corker - McChrystal seeks to expose what he calls the jihadists' "flagrant contravention of the principles of the Koran", including indiscriminate use of violence and terrorism, and attacks on schools and development projects.

One can only assume that this fool hasn't actually read what the Qur'an says about violence against unbelievers, or what Islamic law teaches about terroristic acts such as the slaughter of civilians and suicide bombing.

This is what our troops are fighting and dying for?
