Islam, ‘Mindslaughter,’ and the Catastrophic ‘Lewis Doctrine’

Col. Douglas MacGregor is a respected military strategist who was a heroic tank commander during the 1991 Iraq war.

As the Gen McChrystal scandal broke in 2010, Col MacGregor, who attended West Point with McChrystal, and was angered by the US military’s disastrous Iraq and Afghanistan “nation building” efforts, commented accurately:

The idea that we are going to spend a trillion dollars to reshape the culture of the Islamic world is utter nonsense.

    it could be done but it would entail ripping out every shred of islamic culture and forcing secular schooling and government on the population.
    it would have to be a multi generational project like the marshal plan,and the present social structure would fight every inch of the way. better to just depopulate islamic ares

    Col. Douglas MacGregor has it right.
    To put it in a pop culture context for you, this:
    From the film “The 13th Warrior”.

    “Wars are won in the will.
    Perhaps you’ve been fighting in the wrong field.
    Slaughter them till you rot.
    You’ll accomplish nothing.
    Find the root!
    Strike the will.”
