Citizen Warrior,

This is good news! We need as many allies as can get in the war on terror.

Citizen Warrior,

Same here. Have you ever thought about writing a counter Jihad book? With all the high quality material on your website, I think you could easily do so. And I would really like to read it.

Thank you, Damien. Coincidentally enough, for the last week and a half, I've been working on just such a book.

I have several in mind. This first one will be rather small, and hopefully a tool we can use to share with people who don't have the inclination to read anything online.

Citizen Warrior,

I'm glad to hear that. Maybe I'll buy a copy soon after it comes out.

Citizen Warrior,

Well it looks like you will get even more motivated. I just commented on an interesting article on
Red_Alerts. It in turn quotes another article from CBS2Chicago which states,
An estimated 123 people were shot and killed over the summer. That's nearly double the number of soldiers killed in Iraq over the same time period.

In May, cbs2chicago.com began tracking city shootings and posting them on Google maps. Information compiled from our reporters, wire service reports and the Chicago Police Major Incidents log indicated that 123 people were shot and killed throughout the city between the start of Memorial Day weekend on May 26, and the end of Labor Day on Sept. 1.

According to the Defense Department, 65 soldiers were killed in combat in Iraq. About the same number were killed in Afghanistan over that same period.

In the same time period, an estimated 245 people were shot and wounded in the city.

Now the city's high body count is certainly not a good thing, but more innocent civilians are being killed in inner city Chicago than our soldiers stationed in Iraq. It looks like we are doing pretty good.

Citizen Warrior,

Now what does that make you think?

I agree with Damien. Your material is of consistently high quality, and your focus on remaining positive (after all, the first step in doing anything is to say, "I will"), is invaluable advice, and is almost completely lost on many people, if not most, in the counter-Jihad.

I agree with you totally on that point, and it is one reason I love your contributions.

I'll tell you what that makes me think: That the mainstream media, with its anti-war bias and its negative bias makes as big a deal as they can out of "all the U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq." When I see those web sites that tally the soldier's deaths, it makes me angry. A soldier's death is a bad thing, but it is for a good cause and the death rate, given the job they're doing, is astonishingly low. Without meaning to, the mainstream media produces an artificially-induced helplessness in people.

I also think if they could somehow use the aggressive force of inner city thugs for good instead of evil, that could make a huge difference. The U.S. military, in order to get higher quality soldiers, has stopped giving criminals a choice between jail or enlisting, but there was something really good about that. The thugs may have been a bad influence on some soldiers, but it was probably a good influence on some of the thugs.


Thank you very much. I appreciate that.

Citizen Warrior,

That's kind of what it makes me think.
