Why Not a Mercenary Army Contra Isis?

August 22, 2014

It seems to Silverwolf that the easiest and least controversial way to destroy ISIS is for the West, and the Islamic Nations of the East who oppose ISIS, to recruit a mercenary army of military veterans. This could be a coalition of anyone in the West and the other regions, who is appalled by ISIS’s murderous actions, and who has had military training. It would be especially valuable to have moderate Muslims in this force who want to repudiate the anti-Libertarian ideology of ISIS. If there were ever an ideology as opposite to Jefferson’s as is possible to be, it is ISIS’s, and its’ genocidal proponents need to be blasted from the face of the earth.

If the U.S. and the U.K.  had spent the fortunes they have wasted in Iraq and Afghanistan on a highly-motivated, pro-Jeffersonian, mercenary army, the situations in Iraq and Afghanistan might have been returned to the basic norms of human decency long ago, norms that we theoretically see in the Western “social democracies”. Those “democracies” are callous, brutal, and unloving societies, but they are at an infinitely-higher level than the kind of Nazi-like misery that ISIS is imposing on Yezidis, Christians, and Muslims. Those who shoot small children in the head, and behead journalists, need to be hoisted on their own petard.

A non-affiliated, mercenary army, would avoid the protests of the non-interventionists in America, who would stand by while genocide takes place and say it is none of our business. Their Libertarianism ends at the U.S. Borders.

A voluntary, mercenary army would also avoid any kind of coercion, or the situation of a person enlisting, hoping for a cushy desk job in America, but ending up on the frontlines in Iraq. All the fighters there would be there of their own volition, because they wanted to crush this Band of Murderers.

A Mercenary Army Contra ISIS is obviously the best, and most Libertarian solution, to the anti-Humanism of ISIS.

President Obama: He’s Right and Wrong on Libya

March 24, 2011

Silverwolf is exceedingly glad that the British, French, and Americans read his last blog, recommending air action against Muther Qaddafi in order to avert huge massacres of civilians. Within twelve hours, they were following his advice, although he did state that America should not participate, due to the hatred felt towards her in the Middle East. America’s comparative silence in the face of daily massacres of peaceful protesters in virtually every Arab and Gulf capital is probably regarded as the usual way things run by the man in the Arab Street, and our hypocrisy in acting on Libya, but doing nothing about Bahrain and Saudi Arabian Human Rights Atrocities, not to mention our long support for Torturer Mubarak, shows how much the Administration “really cares about people”. We said that Britain, France, the Arab League, and those responsible for economically propping up Qaddafi, like Italy and Germany, were the forces that should be the ones engaged in overthrowing this Miscreant and Mass Murderer and Torturer, but that Silverwolf would not object if America joined in the force, either alone or through NATO, for he holds that genocide or mass murder of civilian populations are the responsibility of all Libertarians on the face of the Earth. However, when we talk of regimes that are comparatively mildly repressive (say, a regime that jailed political dissidents but did not engaging in murder or torture) then holding off on military action that could cost the lives of thousands of innocent soldiers and civilians versus a wait of a few years for a regime to economically crumble or internally reform may be a far better way to go. But in cases of outright genocide and mass murder of civilian populations  like Germany, Uganda, Turkey, Rwanda, Cambodia, Bosnia, Darfur-Sudan, the shelling of Sarajevo, and Qaddafi’s War on Libya’s Youth, it clearly is better for the individuals being murdered if the world intervenes and saves their lives, rather than standing around with its thumb up its ear.

Silverwolf believes that Jefferson’s Constitution was meant as a blueprint for all Mankind, and all civil governments, and he thinks that Jefferson believed these Rights he reserved for men were Universal Natural Rights, and not just confined to those living on the American continent.

Where the President is wrong on Libya is simply that he did not go to Congress for a Declaration of War, and even if he had, there is no obvious way that Libya is a threat to the borders of the United States, or her sovereignty, and so, even if the President had gone to Congress for a Declaration, he should not in theory have been given it. Ron Paul is absolutely right when he says that the President should have gone to  Congress for a Declaration, and that he, Ron Paul,  would have voted against it. Britain, France and NATO, as well as the big commercial backers of Libya like Italy and Germany, along with the Arab League, were the ones who really had the immediate responsibility for the mess in the neighborhood, and they certainly have the financial resources to carry out an operation. They could also enlist and organize into a fighting force any Libertarian-inclined freedom fighters in the area who want to help liberate Libya from Qaddafi. This would have been much more practical than having America overthrow its Constitution yet once again with the unConstitutional “War Powers Act”. And the damage done to the principle of the President consulting with Congress for this most grave move is far greater than any kudos America might earn in the eyes of the North African Youth for joining in the coalition. Once again President Obama has punched the U.S. Constitution in the face.

So, in sum, we are glad that the international coalition has got the lead out of its elbow and acted to prevent mass murder, at least in Benghazi. But we are very disappointed, though not surprised, that the President has, once again, trashed the Constitution and the principle of American non-interventionism unless our borders are under immediate threat

Israel, Iran’s Nuclear Threat, and Murray Rothbard’s Non-Aggression Principle

June 29, 2008

In light of the announcement, the other week, that Valerie Puta, the Puta of St. Petersburg, has sold Iran a new, sophisticated, Russian anti-aircraft missile system, which can take out several planes at one time, the gravity of the genocidal threats against the indigenous inhabitants of Israel by the Iranian government has taken on a fresh urgency. The child-murderer Ahmedinejad, whose Fascist regime has hung and tortured a girl of 16 for the “crime” of having sex with an unmarried man, in violation of International Law, and who has said that Israel should be wiped off the map, has provided all the justification, in Silverwolf’s eyes, for Israel to attack the nuclear facilities in Iran, as well as all government buildings housing the criminals of this criminal regime, according to the non-aggression principle expounded by the shining light of the Libertarian movement, the late Professor Murray Rothbard.

Rothbard’s Libertarian Creed, expounded in his “The Ethics of Liberty” as well as in other of his works, states simply that “No man or group of men may aggress against the person or property of anyone else.” Clearly, under this doctrine, the Iranian leadership’s threat to “wipe Israel off the map” is a form of genocidal aggression, as is its threat to retaliate against Jews and Jewish communities around the world. And this Islamo-Fascist regime’s involvement in the bombing of the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, in which roughly 100 Human Beings were murdered and maimed by the Iranians, shows that these are not empty threats.

Now, one of the precipitating considerations in Rothbard’s view as to whether to initiate defensive action against a man or group of men who threaten one’s person or property, is the immediacy of the threat. If my neighbour says, “Some day, if I ever have the money to buy a gun, which I don’t have now, I’m going to blow your head off”, (and which I don’t think he’ll ever have because every time he has a dollar in his pocket he rushes down to the nearest bar, and spends it on booze), Rothbard would say that I don’t have the right to shoot that man in the back when he turns around. If he says to me, “Next month, when I get my next paycheck, I’m going to buy a gun and blow your head off,” then the urgency of the situation may or may not justify my blowing his head off then and there. Rothbard is a little fuzzy on that. But when he says, “As soon as I get my gun, I’m going to blow your head off”, and he turns and heads towards his gun shed, then Rothbard’s Libertarian principle would seem to justify my blowing his head off first. That is not the crime of “backshooting”.

Now, in light of the statement only the other day by UN nuclear official El-Baradei, that Iran could have a nuclear weapon in 6-months, and in light of both the sale of the defense system by the Russian Puta to Iran, and the aforementioned Iranian threats, there is little doubt in Silverwolf’s mind that Israel not only has the right, under Libertarian doctrine, to strike at those facilities, and the Iranian government buildings housing the officials of this outlaw regime, but Israel also the moral duty to do so to save the lives of roughly 6 million Israelis (a third of whom are non-Jewish Arabs and foreign guest-workers), as well as the lives of Arabs in surrounding nations, who are downwind from the radioactive fallout. Silverwolf believes this would send a message, not only to Iran, but to the whole world, that countries, when threatened with genocide and mass murder, have every right to strike against those who are responsible for those threats. This will almost certainly prevent further genocides in the future, as well as definitely preventing the genocide which it is obvious Iran has planned for the Israeli nation.

One should remember that key members of the UN, including France, Russia, China, Canada, and the EU, have offered to permit, and even help, Iran to develop nuclear power for domestic peaceful purposes, if they were willing to remove the spent fuelrods to Russia, which sounds like a pretty reasonable plan to Silverwolf. But this rational approach has been rejected by the Iranian leadership, leading to the recent imposition of sanctions against Iran by the EU. It is very obvious what Iran wants: to wipe out the Jews.

Silverwolf can only imagine the reaction of America, if a group of Mexicans were continually firing missiles across the border into Arizona, California, and New Mexico, and claiming they were justified in doing so because of the Mexican-American War of the 1840’s. And he can only imagine what would be the reaction of the American government if, at the same time, the Mexican Government declared that they were going to “wipe America off the face of the map” while continuing to develop nuclear weapons and violating UN resolution after UN resolution concerning inspections in regard to the possibility of such weapons, to the extent that the rest of the Western world finally imposed sanctions on them. Would America sit around with its thumb up its ear and do nothing? Silverwolf doubts it. Yet, the clamorers of the hard-Left, who have nothing but criticism for Israeli policies towards the Arabs in the occupied-West bank (and many of which criticisms are valid), are completely silent or excusatory when it comes to Iran’s genocidal threats towards Israel, to Islamic Sudan’s Genocide in Darfur, to child-torture in Kenya as was revealed a few days ago, to mass rape in the Congo, to N. Korea’s gulags, to Russian torture in Chechnya, to the more than 50-year-long occupation and cultural genocide of Buddhist Tibet by Commie China, to Zimbabwe’s torturing miscreant Fascist rulers, to the persecution and murder of Coptic Christians under the Egyptians, to Malaysia’s persecution of Hindus and Tamils, to Castro’s jailing of dissidents, and on and on. Egypt just shot to death a seven-year old Sudanese girl trying to cross into Israel. The BBC didn’t report it. Wonder why?

Now, if tomorrow morning (and Silverwolf hopes it will happen) Ahmedinejad announced that Iran was renouncing its threat to destroy Israel, and not to retaliate against Jews around the world, and that it was willing to cooperate with the eminently reasonable proposals that have been put to it by the aforementioned UN members, then Israel would have no justification in immediately attacking Iran’s nuclear weapons program. But this is as unlikely as that tomorrow the whole world will become vegan and shut its millions of slaughterhouses for defenseless animals.

Israel must send a message to the world that genocide will not be tolerated. The bombing of Iran’s nuclear facilities will save not only 6 million Human Beings, living in Israel, but countless millions in the future who will not suffer the Crime of Genocide, because Israel took action in the here and now. Mass murderers of the future will think twice about starting down this road of Evil, and may decide not to embark on it, if Israel acts today.

The longer Israel hesitates, the more dangerous becomes her situation. The time for talk and diplomacy is over. The time for action, precipitated by the Russian arms sales, has begun. Under Rothbard’s Libertarian doctrine, Israel would be completely justified in this action.

Silverwolf wonders if that 16-year old girl, Atefeh Rabaji, whom the Iranians dragged out and hung by  slowly hoisting her with a crane, on August 15, 2004, for the “crime”  of having sex, may have called on G-d to avenge her murder by destroying her murderers. It seems the Big Guy Upstairs may have heard her.
