On threats.

Usually when people make threats, they are not bluffing.  I tried to collect a few “prediction/threats” by various enemies of the west, but oddly enough, I could not find many.  I have four here, and if any readers can think of any others, please use the comment feature of wordpress (below the post):

A Russian communist named Manuilsky: “The capitalist countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to co-operate in their own destruction. They will leap at another chance to be friends. As soon as their guard is down we shall smash them with a clenched fist.”

He (Hitler) prophesized that if they (The Jews) brought about another world war, they would experience their annihilation. “The world war is here. The annihilation of the Jews must be the necessary consequence. This question is to be viewed without sentimentality. We’re not to have sympathy with the Jews, but only sympathy with our German people. If the German people has again now sacrificed around 160,000 dead in the eastern campaign, the instigators of this bloody conflict will have to pay for it with their own lives.’
And from a speech of his: “If the international finance-Jewry inside and outside Europe should succeed in plunging the nations into a world war yet again, then the outcome will not be the victory of Jewry, but rather the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe!”

Che Guevara: “The imperialist enemy must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves.” and “The U.S. is the great enemy of mankind! Against those hyenas there is no option but extermination. We must keep our hatred against them [the U.S.] alive and fan it to paroxysms!…If the nuclear missiles had remained in Cuba we would have fired them against the heart of the U.S. including New York City.”

When Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi walked away from a U.S. detention camp in 2009, the future leader of ISIS issued some chilling final words to reservists from Long Island.
“He said, ‘I’ll see you guys in New York,’” recalls Army Col. Kenneth King, then the commanding officer of Camp Bucca.

ISIS spokesman Abu Mosa:
“I say to America the Islamic Caliphate has been established and we will not stop…Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq. We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.”

While you should believe threats, you should not believe reassurances from your enemies.  For instance on 9/11 one hijacker on the flight from Boston said to the passengers: “Nobody move. Everything will be OK. If you try to make any moves, you’ll endanger yourself and the aeroplane. Just stay quiet.” And again at 8.34: “Nobody move please. We are going back to the airport. Don’t try to make any stupid moves.”

One thought on “On threats.

  1. Maybe the reason you couldn’t find many threats against the West is that Western culture now so dominates the world that aside from extremists most people realise that attacking the West would cut off their own sources of goods and satisfactions.
