The American Militia
IF the worst case scenario below comes to
we will be seriously tested.
Just what is the duty, the task, of the American Militia? The text below, provided by a
Professional Associate, delves into that question. This is a bit long, so get comfortable.

Sixty-three years ago, Nazi Germany had overrun almost all of Europe and hammered
England to the verge of bankruptcy and defeat, and had sunk more than four hundred British
ships in their convoys between England and America for food and war materials.
At that time the US was in an isolationist, pacifist mood, and most Americans wanted nothing
to do with the European or the Asian war.
Then along came Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and in outrage Congress unanimously
declared war on Japan, and the following day on Germany, which had not yet attacked us. It
was a dicey thing. We had few allies.
France was not an ally, as the Vichy government of France quickly aligned itself with its
German occupiers. Germany was certainly not an ally, as Hitler was intent on setting up a
Thousand Year Reich in Europe. Japan was not an ally, as it was well on its way to owning
and controlling all of Asia. Together, Japan and Germany had long-range plans of invading
Canada and Mexico, as launching pads to get into the United States over our northern and
southern borders, after they finished gaining control of Asia and Europe. America's only allies
then were England, Ireland, Scotland, Canada, Australia, and Russia. That was about it. All
of Europe, from Norway to Italy, except Russia in the East, was already under the Nazi heel.
America was certainly not prepared for war. America had drastically downgraded most of its
military forces after WW I and throughout the depression, so that at the outbreak of WW 2,
army units were training with broomsticks because they didn't have guns, and cars with "tank"
painted on the doors because they didn't have real tanks. And a huge chunk of our navy had
just been sunk or damaged at Pearl Harbor.
Britain had already gone bankrupt, saved only by the donation of $600 million in gold bullion
in the Bank of England, that was actually the property of Belgium, given by Belgium to England
to carry on the war when Belgium was overrun by Hitler (a little known fact). Actually, Belgium
surrendered on one day, because it was unable to oppose the German invasion, and the
Germans bombed Brussels into rubble the next day just to prove they could. Britain had
already been holding out for two years in the face of staggering losses and the near
decimation of its air force in the Battle of Britain, and was saved from being overrun by
Germany only because Hitler made the mistake of thinking the Brits were a relatively minor
threat that could be dealt with later, and first turning his attention to Russia, at a time when
England was on the verge of collapse, in the late summer of 1940.
Ironically, Russia saved America's butt by putting up a desperate fight for two years, until the
US got geared up to begin hammering away at Germany.
Russia lost something like 24 million people in the sieges of Stalingrad and Moscow alone...
90% of them from cold and starvation, mostly civilians, but also more than a 1,000,000
Had Russia surrendered, Hitler would have been able to focus his entire war effort against the
Brits, then America. And the Nazis could possibly have won the war.
All of this is to illustrate that turning points in history are often dicey things. And now, we find
ourselves at another one of those key moments in history.
There is a very dangerous minority in Islam that either has, or wants and may soon have, the
ability to deliver small nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons, almost anywhere in the world.
The Jihadis, the militant Muslims, are basically Nazis in Kaffiyahs – they believe that Islam,
a radically conservative form of Wahhabi Islam, should own and control the Middle East first,
then Europe, then the world. And that all who do not bow to their will of thinking should be
killed, enslaved, or subjugated. They want to finish the Holocaust, destroy Israel, and purge
the world of Jews. This is their mantra.
There is also a civil war raging in the Middle East --for the most part not a hot war, but a war
of ideas. Islam is having its Inquisition and its Reformation, but it is not known yet which will
win -- the Inquisitors, or the Reformationists.
If the Inquisition wins, then the Wahhabis, the Jihadis, will control the Middle East, the OPEC
oil, and the US, European, and Asian economies. The techno-industrial economies will be at
the mercy of OPEC --not an OPEC dominated by the educated, rational Saudis of today, but
an OPEC dominated by the Jihadis. You want gas in your car? You want heating oil next
winter? You want the dollar to be worth anything? You better hope the Jihad, the Muslim
Inquisition, loses, and the Islamic Reformation wins.
If the Reformation movement wins, that is, the moderate Muslims who believe that Islam can
respect and tolerate other religions, and live in peace with the rest of the world, and move out
of the 10th century into the 21st, then the troubles in the Middle East will eventually fade away,
and a moderate and prosperous Middle East will emerge.
We have to help the Reformation win, and to do that we have to fight the Inquisition, i.e., the
Wahhabi movement, the Jihad, Al Qaeda and the Islamic terrorist movements. We have to
do it somewhere. And we can't do it everywhere at once. We have created a focal point for the
battle at a time and place of our choosing........in Iraq.
Not in New York, not in London, or Paris or Berlin, but in Iraq, where we are doing two
(1) We deposed Saddam Hussein. Whether Saddam Hussein was directly involved in 9/11
or not, it is undisputed that Saddam has been actively supporting the terrorist movement for
decades. Saddam is a terrorist.
Saddam is, or was, a weapon of mass destruction, who is responsible for the deaths of
probably more than a million Iraqis and two million Iranians.
(2) We created a battle, a confrontation, a flash point, with Islamic terrorism in Iraq. We have
focused the battle. We are killing bad people, and the ones we get there we won't have to get
here. We also have a good shot at creating a democratic, peaceful Iraq, which will be a
catalyst for democratic change in the rest of the Middle East, and an outpost for a stabilizing
American military presence in the Middle East for as long as it is needed.
World War II, the war with the German and Japanese Nazis, really began with a "whimper"
in 1928. It did not begin with Pearl Harbor. It began with the Japanese invasion of China. It
was a war for fourteen years before America joined it. It officially ended in 1945 -- a 17 year
war --and was followed by another decade of US occupation in Germany and Japan to get
those countries reconstructed and running on their own again ... a 27 year war.
World War II cost the United States an amount equal to approximately a full year's GDP -adjusted
for inflation, equal to about $12 trillion dollars. W.W.II cost America more than
400,000 killed in action, and nearly 100,000 still missing in action.
The Iraq war has, so far, cost the US about $160 billion, which is roughly what 9/11 cost New
York. It has also cost about 2,200 American lives, which is roughly 2/3 of the 3,000 lives that
the Jihad snuffed on 9/11. But the cost of not fighting and winning W.W.II would have been
unimaginably greater -- a world dominated by German and Japanese Nazism.
This is not 60 minute TV shows, and 2 hour movies in which everything comes out okay.
The real world is not like that. It is messy, uncertain, and sometimes bloody and ugly. Always
has been, and probably always will be.
The bottom line is that we will have to deal with Islamic terrorism until we defeat it, whenever
that is. It will not go away if we ignore it.
If the US can create a reasonably democratic and stable Iraq, then we have an "England" in
the Middle East, a platform, from which we can work to help modernize and moderate the
Middle East. The history of the world is the clash between the forces of relative civility and
civilization, and the barbarians clamoring at the gates. The Iraq war is merely another battle
in this ancient and never ending war. And now, for the first time ever, the barbarians are about
to get nuclear weapons. Unless somebody prevents them.
We have four options:
1. We can defeat the Jihad now, before it gets nuclear weapons.
2. We can fight the Jihad later, after it gets nuclear weapons (which may be as early as next year, if Iran's progress on nuclear weapons is what Iran claims it is)
3. We can surrender to the Jihad and accept its dominance in the Middle East, now, in
Europe in the next few years or decades, and ultimately in America.
4. Or, we can stand down now, and pick up the fight later when the Jihad is more widespread
and better armed, perhaps after the Jihad has dominated France and Germany and maybe
most of the rest of Europe. It will, of course, be more dangerous, more expensive, and much
If you oppose this war, I hope you like the idea that your children, or grandchildren, may live
in an Islamic America under the Mullahs and the Sharia, an America that resembles Iran
The history of the world is the history of civilizational clashes, cultural clashes. All wars are
about ideas, ideas about what society and civilization should be like, and the most determined
Those who are willing to be the most ruthless always win. The pacifists always lose, because
the anti-pacifists kill them.
Remember, perspective is every thing, and America's schools teach too little history for
perspective to be clear, especially in the young American mind.
The Cold war lasted from about 1947 at least until the Berlin Wall came down in 1989. Forty-
two years. Europe spent the first half of the 19th century fighting Napoleon, and from 1870 to
1945 fighting Germany.
World War II began in 1928, lasted 17 years, plus a ten year occupation, and the US still has
troops in Germany and Japan. World War II resulted in the death of more than 50 million
people, maybe more than 100 million people, depending on which estimates you accept.
The US has taken more than 2,000 killed in action in Iraq. The US took more than 4,000 killed
in action on the morning of June 6, 1944, the first day of the Normandy Invasion to rid Europe
of Nazi Imperialism. In W.W.II the US averaged 2,000 KIA a week -- for four years. Most of
the individual battles of W.W.II lost more Americans than the entire Iraq war has done so far.
But the stakes are at least as high ... A world dominated by representative governments with
civil rights, human rights, and personal freedoms .. or a world dominated by a radical Islamic
Wahhabi movement, by the Jihad, under the Mullahs and the Sharia (Islamic law).
It's difficult to understand why the American left does not grasp this. They favor human rights,
civil rights, liberty and freedom, but evidently not for Iraqis.
"Peace Activists" always seem to demonstrate here in America, where it's safe.
Why don't we see Peace Activists demonstrating in Iran, Syria, Iraq, Sudan, North Korea, in
the places that really need peace activism the most?
The liberal mentality is supposed to favor human rights, civil rights, democracy,
multiculturalism, diversity, etc., but if the Jihad wins, wherever the Jihad wins, it is the end of
civil rights, human rights, democracy, multiculturalism, diversity, etc.
Americans who oppose the liberation of Iraq are coming down on the side of their own worst
So; How do these words of another relate to the American Militia? These are his own ideas,
discussing a potential worst case senario, but they underscore the Militia attitude. Know what
you may be getting into and be ready for any eventuality, no matter how remote it may appear.
Learn from History, because those who do not ... You know the rest.
The writer goes on, beyond asking what is the task of the Militia, because what good is all its
preparing if the Militia does not know what will be done, or fails to act, in the future. Others
have classified the Militia in basic categories such as; the Obligatory Militia, the Volunteer
Militia, the Ready Militia and the Reserve Militia. Each has its higherarchy of members and
schedule of call up. We will get into this in much more detail in a later essay. For now it is
sufficient to understand that all of the Militia has a basic duty to respond in time of need. If for
example the local law enforcement is overwhelmed or refuses to act, the Militia must fill the
gap. If disaster strikes and regular responders are delayed, the Militia is the first responder.
If well intentioned public officials (or perhaps opportunistic tyrannical leaders after a disaster)
act in contravention of the Constitution, the Militia must act. Trained, educated and equipped
members can first care for themselves and then come to the aid of their community. They will
react for and on behalf of local Citizens.
It is OK to be prepared, even for an event which others may think highly unlikely. The
paranoid are occasionally correct; sometimes, someone REALLY IS out to get them.
Remember, things can easily go from bad to worse. “Blessed is the pessimist for he carries
The American Militia is all around you, and standing ready to act.
