'A historic test that will determine the future of humanity'

Thursday, August 03, 2006
AmbivaBlog: "Read that sentence again and remember it: 'A historic test that wll determine the future of humanity.' That is what Israel is fighting for, and that is what Lebanese Shiite civilians, like the 3000 Americans killed on 9/11/01, are dying for. All-out war has been declared on liberal democracy by neo-medieval fascist theocracy. Soon enough that war will be nuclear. This is a crucial point, psychologically and strategically, to score a decisive victory -- if that is even possible with the world howling for a ceasefire. Ruthless strength may be railed against and hated, but deep down, when niceness has only emboldened the most ruthless, strength is also admired -- even by the defeated."

“neo-medieval fascist theocracy”

This description does not go far enough. This is what I prefer:

neo-medieval nihilistic theocracy

The hard core true believers desire death. When push comes to shove, their culture is premised on suicide. The end of this world will supposedly bring them closer to God.

I agree with this.

If the west can't summon up the guts to assign responsibility for this to Hezbollah, then the west is committing suicide.

David, that word doesn't mean what you think it means. Honest. You could look it up.
