Ignore 5/6 of the World’s Population Behind the Curtain…

Well, that’s exactly what a certain subcommittee of the House Intelligence Committee is trying not to do, according to this assessment from new news sidebar member Hindustan Times from India. Though the piece is mislabeled in a manner implying that India and Pakistan themselves represent threats to the United States, rather than the potential consequences of a possible nuclear (or other major) military exchange between the two nations, it actually represents an attempt by a Congressional committee to get a sense of actual threats to the United States, particularly as represented by China, the Korean peninsula, India-Pakistan (as noted) and actions of giant Moslem populations throughout Asia, especially Southeast Asia (that would be in Indonesia and Malaysia, and environs, possibly including nearby Bangladesh).
Now, obviously, I try to go to foreign sources, because they recognize the significance of this: we will likely streer spy resources in their direction, and probably try to sell both sides of various conflicts (such as India and Pakistan) nasty conventional weapons they can pummel each other with, rather than those irritatingly destabilizing nukes.
Even if (most) people here are too busy giving each other blow jobs about having successfully overthrown a modern, secular dictator under whom, for example, women had relative freedom, in exchange for a democratically elected pro-Iranian theocracy, where women had best get used to those burqa thingies, stonings for adultery, honor killings, and all that other good stuff we got 1,500 of us and tens of thousands of them killed for.
Well, Salam Pax had it as the frontispiece to his blog, perhaps it should become mine… this from Samuel Huntington: “The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact, non-Westerners never do.”
Just a friendly reminder.
