"The West does not have the will to defend itself."

An interview with Mark Steyn.

I think we do

Many do, many don't. Always been that way, always will.

The important thing is for those that do to stick together.

Seems to be a pretty fair assessment - at least with respect to political leadership. At least some individuals do want to defend their culture, but we're not really in much of a position to do anything.

(OK, so a WB cartoon character may not exactly be a credible source, but the intent is clear.)

The salvation, the preservation of western civilization, of all that has been best for human well being in all of history... in our hands.

If we cannot defend this Nation and restore the constitutional rule of law, if we cannot root out the pernicious leftism that rots our strength, we and all the world are lost to generations of oppression, devolution and misery.

Steyn's analysis is frightening because it is accurate. Do you need another reason to get ready?

There's a fight coming, the sooner the better, because there is going to be no other way to save Liberty. The longer we wait, the stronger the enemies grow and the weaker what remains of western culture and resolve becomes.

Do you understand yet?

History is littered with the corpses of people who thought we were soft.

However I think we will need ourselves a little revolution, mixed with secession, to bring ourselves into proper fighting trim, and to divest ourselves of bad ideas and bad cultural habits. Obama should get us there soon.

As to Europeans, they will have to do what the Spanish did in the 15th century: expel all the Muslims. That is their only option, if they want to avoid dhimmitude. I wonder if they are up to it? I think some of them are.
