What Terrorists Want


militantesFreud famously said that what women want was the one question that he was never able to answer. The modern liberal, having abolished gender and the family, no longer worries about what women want. Instead he worries what the terrorists, who despite his best efforts to appease them, to respect their culture and religion keep blowing him up, want.

Recently it came out that the creative director of the September 11 Museum opposed including the famous photo that shows New York City firefighters raising the flag over the ruins of the World Trade Center. When reached for comment, the creative director said that he did not want to simplify 9/11.

“Its simplicity,” he said, “would actually distort the complexity of the event, the meaning of the event.”

Liberals are great lovers of nuance. Ask an ordinary New Yorker who saw the planes hit the towers what the terrorists want and he will say, “To kill us all.” But to the left that is an excessive simplification that leaves out such key elements as American foreign policy, the role of automation in a global economy and the price of tea in China.

The great critique of the Bush years was that the Texas cowboy lacked nuance. He saw people who were killing us, instead of people aggrieved by our carbon crimes, our support for governments that terrorists don’t like and our undercutting of the Beijing tea market.

Out went the cowboy on his steed and in rode the diplomat on his ass. Reset buttons were pushed, and pushed again, speeches were given and concessions were made.

The left got its way with a foreign policy based on nuance and giving the terrorists what they want by empowering political Islam. And the Middle East has never been more unstable, more dangerous or more on the verge of exploding than in the Age of Nuance.

To understand how we got here, it’s instructive to look at a book that was typical of the left’s Bush-era terrorist revisionism.

What Terrorists Want by Louise Richardson attempted to do for terrorists what Freud could not do for women. And despite her impressive credentials as a former IRA member and Harvard executive dean of Advanced Study, she got terrorists as wrong as Freud got women.

Richardson’s ideas weren’t unique. They were part of the dominant liberal critique of the Bush years. And since then, their false assumptions have become bad policy. Terrorists couldn’t be defeated. Instead they had to be isolated through complex programs of appeasement. America had to prioritize its alliances and liberal values over the messy bloody act of actually killing terrorists.

The ex-terrorist and Harvard faculty member suggested that the United States negotiate with Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri. And if negotiating with the leader of Al Qaeda in order to isolate and defeat Al Qaeda isn’t nuance, what is? What is the sound of one hand clapping? If a tree falls in a forest does it make a sound? If we appease Al Qaeda to defeat Al Qaeda, do our nuanced one-handed handshakes with our new pal Ayman make a squishing noise?

Back in 1998, Ayman Al-Zawahiri had proclaimed in a fatwa with Bin Laden, “We, with Allah’s help, call on every Muslim who believes in Allah and wishes to be rewarded to comply with Allah’s order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it.”

It would take a river of denial the size of the one in Al-Zawahiri’s Egyptian homeland to find any nuance in that, but Richardson wasn’t just swimming in a river of denial; she and her agreeable liberal readers and reviewers were drowning in an ocean of the stuff.

“Its [Al Qaeda's] interest in weapons of mass destruction was driven more by a desire to intimidate us and defend itself against us than by the desire to deploy them in the United States,” Richardson wrote. That statement would have been bad enough in 1998; it was downright criminally inexcusable after September 11. Any book that contained the claim should have been laughed off the lowest shelves.

And yet Richardson’s thesis was widely accepted. If only we would talk to the terrorists, find some common ground, convince them to run for office, then the problem would be solved.  The terrorists don’t want to kill us. Even if they’re brandishing a dirty bomb, it’s only in self-defense.

Six years later, the experiment was attempted. Obama threw everything America had into “smart” programs for “Countering Violent Extremism.”

A “Hearts and Minds” program was deployed in Afghanistan that cost the lives of countless American soldiers. In the Middle East, friendly governments were edged aside to make way for the political Islamists of the Muslim Brotherhood who were meant to serve as moderate role models for Al Qaeda by showing them that terrorist groups can take over a country by winning elections … instead of planting bombs. At home, every arm of the government, including NASA, was retasked to handle the formidable challenge of enhancing Muslim self-esteem to keep Muslim teenagers from becoming surly acne-ridden suicide bombers.

The liberal prescription of defeating Muslim terrorists by isolating them through the appeasement of every other Islamist group was and is the single most insane foreign policy ever perpetrated. And it has now culminated in arms being sent to Muslim Brotherhood terrorists.

The withdrawal of American support didn’t lead to friendly Islamist rule, but political civil wars between the Islamists and the liberals with both sides blaming and hating America more than ever. Domestically, pandering to Muslims did not stop the “Lone Wolf” attacks perpetrated by Muslims in America.

Six years later, Louise Richardson hasn’t written a sequel to “What Terrorists Want.” There is no, “What Terrorists Want Even More,” “50 Shades of Terrorism” or “Chicken Soup for the Terrorist Soul.” It’s doubtful that this is because Richard knows that she was wrong. More likely it’s because she has nothing more to add.

Obama, Inc. doesn’t appear to have carried out some of Richardson’s wilder proposals, such as negotiating with Al Qaeda, but the general outline of his program is the one that liberals, including Richardson, were calling for.

But what do terrorists really want? They want to win, while we seem to want to lose. The foreign policy prescriptions of liberal experts like the idea of us losing.

“The way America will look best, the way we can really do best, is to not be Americans so vigilantly and so vehemently,” the creative director of the September 11 museum said.

There’s no way that we can stop being Americans, but we can start feeling bad about that. We can stop thrilling at the sight of an American flag rising over the rubble of Ground Zero and learn to feel bad about it. We can stop wanting to win and start trying to lose.

And then maybe we’ll finally understand what the terrorists want. What they really, really want.

    In the final analysis, liberals are far more dangerous than terrorists; and evil, worthless baboons like Obama will end up harming America far greater than Al-Zawahiri could have ever done in his wildest dreams.

            Any sane person should fear Islam. It is a violent, homicidal cult that is obsessed with subjugating, or murdering, every person on earth who won’t submit to its evil. Actually, your parroting of the gay movement — by plagiarizing their idiotic “homophobia” — shows a real lack of creativity and accuracy.
            Since Islam is so misanthropic, people who abhor islam should be called mislamist. Anyone who fears Islam should be called wise, or smart.

To justify your brutalities and invasions in the world. When we are talking about Israel’s brutalities, or American invasions, you start spewing Islamophobia to divert attention. Talk about the issues, don’t bring Islam up. Islam is a bogymen for neocons to justify American and Israeli atrocities.

      I’m not sure what you mean in your post but the Jews were there centuries before Islam was even invented. It’s all Jewish land. The Muslims who live in the Jewish homeland (which includes Gaza and the West Bank) were once Jews, Christians, Animists and such, who were forcibly converted into the Religion of Pieces.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        Actually, all of those arguments are beside the point, as the sole fundamental purpose of mainstream orthodox Islam is the subjugation into Islamic totalitarianism of all religions and all infidels via the imposition of Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law, and that is also the sole fundamental reason behind their perpetual jihad to reconquer Israel as well.

      • Taimoor Khan

        I don’t blame you as you are a victim of continuous vile neocon propaganda.

        The Jewish presence in Palestine was a minority presence, until settlers from Russia, Poland, and other countries started arriving. Majority of Palestine was Muslim and after that Christian.

        You say the Palestinians were converted from Judaism to Islam. Okay. How do you think those “Jews” became Jews in the first place? They were forcibly converted to Judaism from Idoltery! So let’s give the land to original idolaters and expel the Jews! Let’s call the land as “Idolaters homeland!”

        The problems are settler Jews from Europe and other parts of the world. They are the root of the cancer inflicting Palestine.

        Lastly, to call Palestine “Jewish homeland” when Jews were in a small minority is to be racist and bigot, and akin to justifying expulsion and massacre of of locals that were later done by Israel.

        • annademo

          You clearly never learned history in that madrassa you attend(ed). Islam was invented in the 7th century. The Levant was the Jewish homeland for thousands of years before your “prophet” was born.

        • Drakken

          Rather interesting that a paki goat herder is lecturing us infidels us on a war that the muslim savages started and lost and tell us we should have some sort of sympathy for them, hilarious!

        • objectivefactsmatter

          “How do you think those “Jews” became Jews in the first place? They were forcibly converted to Judaism from Idoltery!”

          We don’t recognize Islamic claims when we know already that they are not true.

          “Lastly, to call Palestine “Jewish homeland” when Jews were in a small minority is to be racist and bigot, and akin to justifying expulsion and massacre of of locals that were later done by Israel.”

          People were legitimately expelled for their violent unjust attacks on peaceful people and on the legitimate sovereign. They were expelled because they were unlawful enemies of the state and anyone not conforming to their religion. They could have legitimately been shot, with few exceptions. It was merciful to allow them to leave.

        Actually, the so-called Palestinians are the proxies for the Islamic world, as they are on the front lines of the Islamic world’s perpetual jihad to reconquer the infidel nation of Israel and in time all religions and infidels in the world as well.

        • Taimoor Khan

          Did settlers Jews not come from Europe and Russia to create nuance for Palestinians? Was it Islamic world who started it or the settler Jews and their masters?

            The Nawzees were not known for their objectivity on these matters.

          • Jon MC

            Slightly to the side of this:
            originally the numbers of “palestinian” refugees and the numbers of Jews fleeing Arab lands after Israel had the unmitigated gall to to beat the huge Arab army (in the first war) were about equal.
            In other words, Jews and “palestinians” could have swapped homes almost 1 for 1.
            Israel absorbed her immigrants, the Arab states did not absorb theirs – why not?

          • Taimoor Khan

            The fleeing Jews were a consequence of the aggression perpetrated by settler Jews. Also, many flew with the racist mindset of occupying Palestinian land. No comparison to forced displacement of Palestinians. Why did the settlers from Europe came in the first place to occupy locals land? Aren’t locals justified to take their land back?

          • objectivefactsmatter

            “The fleeing Jews were a consequence of the aggression perpetrated by settler Jews.”

            Citation please.

            “Why did the settlers from Europe came in the first place to occupy locals land? Aren’t locals justified to take their land back?”

            Some non-Jewish locals who did own land sold it on their own accord. This pissed off jihadis. They created lies about stolen land and people like you repeat them. Forever apparently.

            “How would it feel to you if you are expelled from your American home”

            If I was part of a worldwide movement to overthrow a newly established government and obviously did not want to recognize their sovereignty, I would not deserve to live there.

            “and then people tell you to go and settle in some place in Europe because they are also white?”

            They’d advise we go where we’re welcome and where we can respect the laws and the sovereign. It has nothing to do with your racism.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Did settlers Jews not come from Europe and Russia to create nuance for Palestinians? Was it Islamic world who started it or the settler Jews and their masters?

            What…you’re dense or something? Again, all of that is taqiyya, i.e., deception designed to distract focus and attention away from the real issue, which is the sole fundamental purpose of mainstream orthodox Islam is the subjugation of all religions and all infidels into Islamic totalitarianism via the imposition of Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law. Indeed, that’s the true motivation behind the jihad being waged by the Islamic world through their proxies the so-called Palestinians against the infidel state of Israel and all the other non-Muslim infidel countries that have the misfortune of bordering Islamic totalitarian hellholes like Israel that are also all under assault by jihad as well. Uhm…is that just some sort of weird coincidence? Yeah right.

      • Taimoor Khan

        Why should Palestinians leave their homeland? The settlers Jews must get out of the land. There are plenty of lands where the settler Jews can go, or not? Are they afraid because they are such a nuance that another Naz! like treatment might happen to them? But you are paving a way for that by your cruelty to Palestinians.

        Palestinians are real, and you nightmare, the settlers must go back.

  • mtnhikerdude

    The Left doesn’t understand that the terrorist motto “Death To All Infidels” includes
    their nuanced butts.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    What it is they all missed including the neo-con writer of this article is the so-called terrorists are not really terrorists at all but jihadists instead fighting jihad (holy war) in the cause of Allah for the establishment/expansion of Islam through the eventual imposition of Sharia, as the sole fundamental purpose of mainstream orthodox Islam is the subjugation into Islamic totalitarianism of all religions and all infidels via the imposition of Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law.

    I know why the left misconstrues what are really jihadists as being terrorists, it’s because they are self-hating loons, and the neo-cons, like the writer of this article, on the other hand, will never admit that the jihadists are not terrorists, because neo-cons are responsible for the strategy in the ill named so-called “War on Terror”, which inevitably turned into the biggest strategic blunder ever in American history, since it was exceeding fantasy-based and premised off of false and absurd political correct myths about Islam. Indeed, to admit that they were mistaken would be to admit at the same time their humongous failure in disgrace and that is the last thing they want to do.

    Nevertheless, terrorism isn’t even a manifestation of Islam as Islamic society alone fights jihad (holy war) instead, which in stark contrast to terrorism that is always and only violent, manifests both violently and non-violently, but astronomically far more non-violently relative to violently. Thus the West today conflates what is really jihad as somehow being terrorism, and because terrorism is always and only violent, the West also totally ignores and doesn’t even oppose anything that isn’t violent because it isn’t viewed as being terrorism, including unfortunately, stealth and deceptive non-violent jihad, such as mass Muslim immigration to the West for the nefarious purpose of stealth demographic conquest.

    2) One way to weed out the patriotic and western thinking members of your society is to keep the conflicts in the middle east constantly churning so you have a grist mill to feed all those would-be conservative leaders of the future into.

Now I know you will cry “9/11″, then I will say sanctions on Iraq and bombing of Sudan, and so on.

    So I just want to say that I personally believe that this whole Muslim terrorist threat is basically a false flag run by the jews in the Mossad and who have taken over the United States. I mean you gotta ask yourself who benefits from all of this: not Muslims and not avrage Americans. ONLY jewish supremacists in “Israel.”The Muslims are just being used as escapegoats because if the jews can get the Americans hating them, they think it makes “israel” stronger or something. People of every colors, black and white, and the ones you call “goys,” are waking up to the fact that 9/11 was a JEWISH job, as was many other terrorist attacks. The group you call al Qeada was a creation of the Mossad and the jew controlled CIA and is STILL on their payrole. People are waking up through the internet to jewish crimes and lies. I would like to urge all the shabbas goys on here to check out the websites of good folks like Mr. David Duke and Ms. Patricia McCallister and theuglytruth website of Mark Glenn and EDUCATE yousrelf on the jewish question. Muslims and CHristians need to UNITE against the common threat of jewish supremacism. Both Jesus and Muhammad understood this. THank you for your time.

  • EarlyBird

    Allowing Muslims political self determination in regard to how they run their own lives and nations is about as American as it can get. If they vote in Islamists, as the Palestinians did in Gaza (Hamas, 2006) or Egypt (Muslim Brotherhood, 2012), let them. Let the Islamists be responsible for something other than complaints and carnage. Let the Islamists actually run a government, handle budgets, security, taxes, price of milk and bread, pave roads, deal with electricity outages and garbage haulers’ strikes. Let them govern. And let them fail.

    The popular election of the MB in Egypt was actually a blow against the Islamists, because it undercut their narrative that they had been kept out of power legitimately. Their complete incompetence in governance once in office was an even further blow.

    But what a win for them that they were forced out by Egypt’s military. It puts them right back where they want to be, on the sidelines waving their bloody shirt and screaming “We was robbed!”
    The uprisings and Islamist chaos in the Middle East are the last struggles against the Great Powers’ colonial control which had been maintained and finally defeated, throughout Africa, Latin America and Asia after WWII. (Yes, the US took up as proxy for those Great Powers.) The Third World which shucked off their oppressors chose communism simply because that was the organizing force available to fight the West. The Arabs, who had tried communism themselves,and “pan-Arabism” also which failed, have turned to radical Islam in the past decades.
    These people are the Sarah Palins of the Middle East. Just like Sarah, they are great at rallying the troops but terrible at, allergic to, and have no real interest in, governing. Teach them that old saying, “be careful what you wish for,” and by allowing them to follow Sarah into the cast of laughing stocks and has-beens.

Al Quaeda has one agenda, and they’re pretty forthcoming about what it is and what they’re willing to do to achieve it. But the US has used terrorism, too, if we’re to be honest about it. Mutually Assured Destruction was a kind of bloodless (thanks be to God!) stalemate of terrorism, and let’s not kid ourselves about the nature of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Yes, the bombings hastened the end of the war, and no, it had nothing whatsoever to do with the loss of manufacturing capability of the two cities. I’m not sure it would be easy to find the commonalities between bin Laden and Truman and JFK and Abimael Guzmán and Nelson Mandela and Joseph Kony, to name just a few.

    Regarding Islamist terrorists, though, it would make sense (given their beliefs) to think that the only reason Islam is not conquering the world the way it did in the century after Mohammed is that contemporary Islam is not “pure” enough. If they could force modern Muslim governments to choose between becoming “hot”, by adopting their preferred form of Islam, or “cold”, by siding with “the West”, Islamists would see that as a good strategic move. What better way to force Muslim governments into choosing sides than to provoke large-scale and prolonged US military activity in the Middle East? I suspect we’ve been played.

    I wish the Jews were as you say. They would have at least eradicated the excrement surrounding their beautiful country and expanded their borders.

    Also… does anything in Black behavior (or consequence) around the world seriously suggest to you that Africans are being sterilized?

    It really is quite simple: The terrorists want to kill us. The only way to prevent that is by killing them.

    Very important Title, what Terrorists want, simple – Power, enjoyment, money rule the world according to the whims and fancies of those who seek power and fight for it.

    It is very unfortunate that most of the terrorists are coming from one single religion, Islam, while there are other groups who do fight for power but they are in minority.

    while fight in Islam is deep rooted in the minds of the trouble mongers and they finish to fight for themselves or rarely cause nuance to opposing party.

    While terrorist minded Islamic followers cannot fight the world to attain its evil objectives any way, there are other softer countries who still have islamic law yet survive in the world.

    Example, Indonesia-Malaysia are low key, but most of the Gulf Countries islamic are ruled by iron hand and suppress any movement.
