General Patton: War Diary Recovery Sends Shockwaves Across America


From The Last English Prince:
The recovery of a private war diary of General George S. Patton is sending shock waves throughout both the veteran and civilian communities. Written in the months preceding the invasion of Normandy, the words penned by the man who commanded the U.S. Seventh Army in the Mediterranean and European theaters of operation in World War II remain inexplicable and difficult to comprehend. 
General Patton takes off the uniform which served him well and delves into the domestic front and the effects of the war on the average citizen. He worries about the inflammatory political discourse against the Nazi ideology, including what he calls “proposals from various quarters” for blanket discrimination against the Germans. 
He ponders that the ramifications of such rhetoric “could be very harmful – and lasting”. He considers that such discussions against the Nazi threat do not make us safer, rather compound a greater danger to the citizens of the United States.
GO READ THE REST.

This could well be a present-day comment from our president of secretary of state regarding Islam.

The Last English Prince is quoting from Petraeus's recent opinion piece in the WaPo. Go read the whole thing -- as Pasto said.

I think the point is, LOOK HOW FAR WE HAVE FALLEN.

But then Patton was disliked by the Press and much of the Military as well.

Anonymous,

The purpose of the piece is to provide a mirror effect which causes us to think in a critical manner regarding how media is using a powerful symbol to present a script for public consumption.

As an American who has a deep understanding of Islam (mentored under a Mufti for a decade, for Christ's sake!) I retain grave concerns regarding Islam in the West. Those concerns should never be misconstrued as "anti-Muslim bigotry" nor should I be cast as someone whose name is put up in lights at the Southern Poverty Law Center.

If you express a concern regarding Islam are you a bigot, or are you just a normal person who harbors concerns? I have been cast as a hardliner. Yet I have a soft and kind heart. But that heart, understands Islam.

Islam brings stress to the non-Muslim hosting nation. My forefathers gave of their blood for this peace. May this country, more a blessing than a name, retain her standing as a place where liberty does not bow to a potentiated seventh century belief system moving rapidly forward in a digital age.

This is about APTITUDE.

There are certain men who have an aptitude for war.

There are certain men (yes and women for all these categories ..men meaning HUMAN) who have an aptitude for revolution.

There are certain men who can lead towards peace.

And in life TIMING IS EVERYTHING.

Patton was a WEAPON. That's it. He had little comprehension of the other sides of things, and he was not BORN to have those leanings. He was born to lead us in war against savage barbarian evil and he as a man fit to that time and place, and thank God for him.

That he could not properly take apart the rest is why the USA has civilian leaders. We also have to realize that at the time Patton wrote this the Treasury Sec. HEnry Morgenthu was successfully (we think) convincing FDR that after victory every single factory in Germany should be dismantled and shipped here (or wherever..but removed) and Germany should be compelled for centuries to be NOTHING but an agrarian nation without industry, courtesy of their actions in 2 world wars. HST rejected this plan (from Beschloss - The COnquerors)
Patton might well have known of these secret plans

At Rutgers, Obama claimed that restricting Muslim immigration “would alienate the very communities at home and abroad who are our most important partners in the fight against violent extremism.”

If we alienate Muslims, who is going to help us fight Muslim terrorism?

You can see why Obama doesn’t mention Islamic terrorism in any way, shape or form. Once you drop the “I” word, then the argument is that you need Islam to fight Islam. And Muslims to fight Muslims.

This is bad enough in the Muslim world where we are told that we have to ally with the “moderate” Muslim governments of Saudi Arabia and Pakistan to fight the Muslim terrorists whom they sponsor.

Petraeus has troublingly close ties to the Saudis. He defended their oil dumping program, praised the role of Islamic law in fighting Islamic terrorism and endorsed their Syria plans. While defending the Saudis as allies, he blamed Israel for America’s problems with the Muslim world. The narrative he was using there was the traditional Saudi one in which Israel, not Islam, is the source of the friction.
