Tet, Take Two:
Islam’s 2016 European Offensive
By Matthew Bracken, November 2015
More than a decade ago I wrote my first novel, Enemies Foreign and Domestic. Part of my motivation was to establish my bona fides at forecasting social, political and military trends. I didn’t like the direction America was heading, and I wanted to warn as many readers as possible about some of the dangers I saw coming. At the end of 2015, I hope that my past success at prognostication will encourage people to pay heed to this essay.
As we roll into the New Year, we are witnessing the prelude to the culmination of a titanic struggle between three great actors. Three great social forces are now set in motion for a 2016 showdown and collision that will, in historical terms, be on par with the First and Second World Wars.
Two of these great social forces are currently allied in a de facto coalition against the third. They have forged an unwritten agreement to jointly murder the weakest of the three forces while it is in their combined power to do so. One of these two social forces would be content to share totalitarian control over large swaths of the globe with the other remaining social force. One of these social forces will never be satisfied until it achieves complete domination of the entire planet. So what are these three great social forces? They are Islam, international socialism, and nationalism.
Allow me to explain the salient aspects of each, and how they relate to the coming 2016 cataclysm.
Islam is similar to a self-replicating supercomputer virus. It is a hydra-headed monster, designed by its creators to be an unstoppable formula for global conquest. It’s almost impossible to eradicate, because it has no central brain or control center. Islam is like a starfish: when you cut off a limb, another grows to replace it. The names of the Muslim leaders, and the names of their Islamic groups, are transitory and ultimately unimportant. Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda are succeeded by Al-Baghdadi and the Islamic State, but they will all pass from the scene and be replaced by others. While Muslim leaders and regimes have come and gone, Islam itself has remained steadfastly at war with the non-Muslim world for 1,400 years.
Islam does not recognize secular national boundaries. To devout Muslims, there are only two significant realms of the world. First is the Dar al-Islam — the House of Islam, which is the land of the believers. The other is the Dar al-Harb — the House of War, which must be made Islamic by any means, including violent jihad. The expansion of Islam is sometimes held in check for long periods, but more often Islam is on the march, acquiring new territory. Once conquered by Islam, territory is rarely taken back, Spain being a notable exception.
“They are Islam, international socialism, and nationalism.”
Fight, Flight, Stand like a tree.
Pyschopath, Sociopath, Identitist.
Protecting Heaven, Earth or Race.
For those that make children afraid and control them.
Everything unravels when you remove the two parent family to create a person that is fatherless and hides in these three guises.
That is why they all hate those Jews, Christians and anyone who uncovers the Father in them.
This key to the door must be securely locked.
Life and death is all we will know.
However, many desire to live forever at all costs.
For them, death is life.
From facilitating the decay of deadbeat husbands to imagine themselves superior in the lust of the female form, to removing father’s in families, to change their children’s very identities.
These players are picking off the innocent.
Fascinating essay. Horribly plausible. There is virtually no other explanation when you think about it. If Mr. Bracken is right, we won’t have to wait very long to find out, will we. We’re talking weeks here…
Even if it’s only a remote possibility that these “refugees” represent a Trojan horse, it should be too much of an obvious risk for any national leader to even consider. But, then, why would Hillary Clinton give Huma Abedin, with her obvious Muslim Brotherhood connections, full access to the State Department’s most classified material while David Petraeus has his career ruined for giving a notebook to his security-cleared and universally trusted biographer? Why does Barack Obama continue to snub Egypt’s Abdel al-Sisi, when that guy probably represents the closest thing to a voice of reason in the whole Muslim world? Why are they insisting on opposing Bashar al-Assad when he is the secularist and the modernist and the “moderate rebels” are the Sunni Jihadists and everybody knows it? Why did they cause the death of Muammar Gaddafi while he led a peaceful and prosperous anti-terrorist Muslim nation, where you could go out for dinner without fear of being blown to bits by a suicide bomber, just like pre-screwed-with-by-the-American Syria? The list, as we all know around here, goes on and on and on and on…
Too many weird things are happening for there not to be hidden and sinister forces at play…
You’ve been asking these questions for quite a while, Chris. This is one chilling answer.
Were you the first to spot POTUS as a Manchurian Candidate? I say the Pope might be another.
The thing about Obama is that it has always been impossible to prove that he’s not a Manchurian Candidate. That would not be true of Bill Clinton or Mike Huckabee or Dwight D Eisenhower or JFK, but it just keeps being true of our Barry. Nobody seems to have sat behind him in homeroom, no old girlfriend has stories to tell. No explanation about his involvement with his relative, Raila Odinga. And then there’s the fact that absolutely everything he’s ever done is guaranteed to make the bad guys rub their hands together and say, “Excellent…excellent…”. He’s just succeeded in driving the Israelis out of the Western camp and straight into the arms of the Russians, utterly crucifying the last hundred years of American international achievement. “Excellent… excellent…”. No one will ever believe a word any American President has to say again…
I have been banging the drum of the relationship between the socialist (cultural marxists) and the Muslim Jihad for some time in comments.
The Keynsian disease will kill the host that is the modern western economy.
In short, tangible defense to a degree against what is coming is to be found in physical precious metals ownership because it has no counterparty risk.
This ownership places you outside the banking system. It is a direct counter to debt based manipulation of the masses. Your readership deserves to know this.
Many of us had realized this in broad terms of the three groups. Socialism and Islam against Nationalism = the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Socialism doesn’t realize it’s made a pact with the devil who, if Islam wins, will eradicate the socialists unless they become Muslims. — and even if they do, there’s no guarantee. Islam is in love with death.
I want to send this to someone, but I can’t get my friends to look away from their lives long enough to take it seriously.
Many of us have this same problem. They think we’re nuts.
I get that. They think I’m obsessed and horribly right wing and racist. I only know a couple of people who have even the slightest inkling of what’s going on, or the slightest desire to find out. I think it gives us some idea of what Winston Churchill went through after he meticulously researched the Nazis, found out what they were up to, and then couldn’t get anybody to listen to a word he had to say. Frustrating!
The left wing is obsessed with the wrong idea that peace can be achieved with an aggressive enemy by simply refusing to fight yourself and then sort of shaming him into peacefulness by your example, or something. Anyway, they’re wrong. That doesn’t work, but left wingers just aren’t capable of learning that and keep insisting on it as a brilliant solution, over and over again…
From my “Home Truths” file, source Richard: “The enemy of my enemy is my enemy’s enemy. Nothing more.”
Crucial maxim. In spades for Middle East diplomacy.
If I hadn’t taken both Vlad Tepes and GoV 101 & 102, could I have appreciated this grim prognostication? And seen it as a plausible scenario for as soon as 2016?
I’m not sure. Let’s see how the lumpen review it.
I’d push “Tet” up a couple years, though. Then again, all those brawling beards milling about in the chilly heart of Europe may collapse the timeframe.
There is one significant difference between Tet and this muslim invasion: The Tet attacks tried to be sneaky about it but these muslims are being shoved at us in public view. We know what they will do once in place. Only to the stupid are these muslim warriors not a threat.
