Here is our future—forever—unless we renounce liberalism

Mr. Nachman is referring to the likelihood that the next method of the Islamic terrorists will be to hide explosives inside their anal cavity, as happened recently in an assasination attempt against a Saudi prince; which, in keeping with the Richard Reid Principle (Reid had explosives in his shoe, therefore all of us must take off our shoes in airports in perpetuity), will require all of us to have our anal cavity searched in airports in perpetuity.

In my perfect world, Islam would be universally discredited and disappear forever. Until then I think the best idea is to halt and reverse all Muslim immigration. Still highly unlikely as of this time. What about putting entire Muslim countries on “No fly lists” as a pre-cursor to the halting of immigration? Or how about putting certain European countries such as the UK on no fly lists as well, until they get serious? I was discussing the previous scenarios with a friend the other day and its ensuing fallout. We thought it would be win win in the long run for everyone involved. Two things could possibly happen. Muslim countries could go berserk and try to wage some type of war against us. As much as that is possible. Quite likely, at least for a short time. Or, after finding themselves totally isolated both culturally and economically (for years) and after some wholesale tribal killing of each other, there might actually be some soul searching, and possibly an Islamic reformation. A reformation that was forced upon them. What do you think? Is Islam even capable of a reformation?LA replies:
On your last question, I’ve argued that an added benefit of isolating and quarantining the Muslim world it that is might shock them into reform, and this would be great, but it is not within our power to make it happen, and therefore our own policy should not be in any way premised on the hope or expectation of Islamic reform. We have to do what we have to do in our own defense—a position radically different from that of the pathetic neocons who say that our survival depends on Islam reforming itself.January 10

By the way, the other day I wrote about the fact that in 1968, when I first flew to California to go to college, there were no screening requirements at all.LA replies:
You attributed Sirhan’s murder of Bobby Kennedy to U.S. support for Israel, rather than to the fact that the U.S. had allowed the Muslim enemies of Israel and of the entire West to immigrate into America. With respect, I think your analysis was wrong.Ferg writes:
Today at lunch with a bunch of fellow pilots we got talking about airspace use. I am retired now and have not flown as a pilot since before 9/11. One of our group who flies regularly in the metro area and is a retired LEO was detailing all the places you are no longer able to fly over in the Twin City area. I listened with growing disbelief as he detailed the buildings, shopping malls, sports stadiums, etc. that are no fly zones below certain altitudes within 1000 yards of horizontal range. I used to teach flying in this area and the only place you couldn’t go was the Terminal Control Area for the main airport. From what he said today it is now very difficult to fly around the metro area without violating some restricted airspace.
