Why the USA won't win the war against Islamofascism

Daniel Greenfield makes some valid arguments why the USA can't win wars if certain evil ideologies aren't taken into consideration:
You can't win a culture war if you don't understand a culture.

The Russian and Chinese Communists understood that they were out to suppress Islam. The Chinese Communists are still doing it. Compare their tactics of forcing Uighur men to shave their beards and drink alcohol to America funding feminism and democracy in Afghanistan. Undermining traditional culture worked in America, they assumed that it would work in Afghanistan. They assumed that they could co-opt Islam the way they have elements of Christianity and Judaism into their woke project.

Their repeat failures in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Europe should be a wake-up call to their bright future in Little Mogadishu and all the Islamic enclaves that they've created in America.

But it won't be.

Up until the very last moment, the State Department believed that it could co-opt the Taliban into the political system they had set up in Afghanistan. Elements of it still seem to believe that they can even as the Jihadists advanced into Kabul. Victory, such as it was, had come to be defined as the Taliban seeing reason and deciding to stop being Jihadists. Three administrations bought into this dumb fantasy.

Jihadists who believe that "Islamic law will come not to just Afghanistan, but all over the world" are not interested in playing Let's Make a Deal except as Taqiyya to keep the infidels off-balance.

The Taliban play to win. We don't.

That's the simple answer to why we haven't won wars in a long time and aren't about to start.
Also note how various feminist groups refuse to protest the Taliban's sharia impositions on women, and a CNN reporter even put on a burka while reporting on the tragedy. And to make matters worse, a woman was murdered by the Taliban for not wearing a burka. What's interesting about the above op-ed is that a fully valid point's been made that China and Russia have both been more realistic about Islam than the USA and other western countries have ever been. And if the Chinese have been trying to prevent the Uygher Muslims from potentially committing violent crimes - and there have been reports in past years of Uyghers who've been involved in terrorism in a number of places - then why do some conservative sources suddenly have a problem with China taking steps to deal with the Islamic adherents in their country?

Any soft approach to Islam, no matter what form it takes, runs a danger of enabling the problem to continue. And that's why the USA for one won't win the war against jihadism if they continue to obscure the issues involved.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
