This excellent essay from StopShouting uses Matthew Bracken’s “Tet, Take Two: Islam’s 2016 European Offensive” as a jumping-off point, and moves on from there to describe possible European scenarios in the near future, and in the United States over a slightly longer term.
Below are excerpts from “Uncomfortable Truth-Telling in ‘Tet Take Two’”:
The idea that NATO and the rest of Western Europe will turn inward for survival is not a foregone conclusion. Surely, they will have to redirect resources and change security postures. Will they do it to halt the juggernaut of Muslim onslaught, or will they fold like the iconic tolerant progressives Quisling and Chamberlain, selling out the hopeful? The 5th columnists are already in place, they have been busy rotting and gnawing away at the timbers of Western civilization visibly since the 1960’s like so many 200 pound termites. The analogy is more accurate than I am comfortable with; that of large, translucent skinned insectoids with sightless eyes incessantly chewing away at the cultural fibre of Western Civilization. In the mind’s eye, picture what once was as well as your liberties being slowly mashed in countless, thoughtless maws. You can see the pulp being slowly moved through peristaltic motion beneath the shiny, translucent skins of armies of bureaucratic termites, onward to the dung heap of history. One may mentally pause and wonder if Brussels and the EU apparatchiks are more of a threat to civilization than Mecca and the Mohammedan multitudes. I’ll take choice “C”, which is BOTH.
While much of what I have written here is mere riff on Bracken’s excellent essay, absorb for a moment the simple math that Bracken has laid out regarding ISIS infiltration in Europa and the potential for violence. Bracken postulates 80,000 ISIS infiltrators in Europa, which I concur is not an unreasonable guesstimate. If they task organize to the same degree as they did for the Paris operation, they have the capability to execute 10,000 Paris events, if not simultaneously, then temporally clustered for maximum shock effect (the shock and awe pigeon comes home to roost). In post-event analysis, it is apparent Paris was more like Mumbai in the “Jellyfish C2“ model of outside remote control.
Consider for a moment what simple linear extrapolation from the damage wrought by the jihadist attacks on Paris with an embedded, ready to go jihadi force of 80,000 pre-positioned throughout Europa under the cover of “refugees”.
The generally accepted reports of 130 civilian deaths, 368 wounded and 90 seriously so, with 7 of 8 attackers killed as the casualty tally from the Paris attacks would mean 1,300,000 or more civilian deaths arising from an embedded jihadi force of 80,000 pre-positioned infiltrators. The actual body count would be significantly higher as they refined their Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTP) to maximize loss of life and liberty.
Take a moment with that.
3,680,000 wounded (how many hospital beds and surgical suites does Europa have?) Of the wounded, 900,000 “seriously”… how many trauma centers and ER staff does Europa have? Cynical and predatory investors might go long on refrigerated storage and backhoes/bulldozers, shovels and hydrated lime. Of note, 7 of 8 dead attackers would mean 70,000 dead jihadists, with 10,000 left on the loose to mount the next wave. 70,000 is the equivalent to 3.5 American Infantry Divisions, counting all the cooks, drivers, bakers and candle stick makers.
Imagine what will happen if even a portion of that gets to the point where they are crossing the line of departure. Europa in that case WILL burn. Violence on that level would create a backlash (and rightly so) that will be effectively unreckonable in any book keeping, as eye-popping as my mathematical musings above. As they say in Texas, “mess with the bull, get the horns”. Central Europe seems to be getting the message to its people on this, sales of firearms are soaring in Switzerland and Austria. Militias are forming in Poland, Hungary and Slovakia. Western Europe ironically may be a source of white Christian refugees into these very places by this time next year.
