The Coming Anarchy has arrived

Posted on Updated on

Ignoring the global jihad is not going to make it go away.  In May, 2010, I wrote the blog post, The Coming Anarchy. 

Some quotes from that post:

But it is from Africa that the anarchy will spread like a blackening hole in burning parchment. Along with mass starvation (unable to be abated by the cash-strapped West), radical Islam will take an even stronger grip, seizing on the human need to destroy when basic needs are not met.  Islamic states such as Iran will gain world-wide political power again, and with the inevitable nuclear bomb in their arsenal, the West shall become a victim of its own ultimate deterrent: Mutually Assured Destruction. Only the West will face a foe more willing to assure its foe’s annihilation.


But from far off, America will watch in horror as any hopes of geopolitical unanimity disintegrate.

With the devaluation of the nation state comes some blessings. It is unlikely that the horrors of full-scale industrialized war shall be visited upon Europe anytime soon. But instead of a full eruption followed by calm, we have entered a time of constant low-intensity war.

Pax Americana is coming to an end. For some it was never good enough.

I was off on a few things, believing the overpopulation bit, and subscribing to the classic Marxist belief that poverty drives all evil. I actually underestimated the power of Jihad, for Jihad’s sake.

Recent headlines are indicative that the Coming Anarchy is here. Almost all of northern Africa is now swamped by Islamism. Egypt: The Muslim Brotherhood; Libya: al-Qaeda; Somalia: al-Shabab; Nigeria: Boko Haram; Algeria: al-Mua’qi’oon Biddam; Yemen: al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula; Mali: Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa. There are now hordes of semi-unified, armed, and very motivated jihadists throughout Africa.

The increased numbers of Muslims whom refuse true integration with the European countries in which they live, combined with the the increasing power of terrorist groups in Africa does not bode well for Europe. When Mali terrorists threatened to attack France in response for French intervention in Mali, they did not make idle threats.

France acted in Mali, both to protect French nationals and to subdue the very real threat that may actually spill onto the European mainland. Frighteningly,  French victory in Mali is not assured. This fight will reveal what non-American, western troops are capable of doing against the rapidly strengthening global jihad.  A loss will not bode well for the west, and that includes America. Christians are being driven from the Middle east and Africa, and as this article states:

The study warns that Christians suffer greater hostility across the world than any other religious group.

The stupid destruction of the Libyan government is helping to fuel the Mali insurrection. Hopefully this is a lesson to the west. Islamic terrorists love a weak democracy and power vacuums.

UPDATE 22JAN2012: As I’ve said–we’re assimilating, not them. Expect more of this than ever. The white, western jihadist.

    Magus – our policy in the Maghreb is to place Islamic democracy in power. As it was our policy in Afghanistan, Iraq, Gaza. It’s what we’ve done and our doing now..

    As for anarchy we have our own shores to look to..

    From my perspective Africa is already lost. The West has ignored Africa for decades and it is unlikely any non-Islamist government will survive. Years ago Edgar Cayce made several startling predictions. 1) America will decline when it removes God from its currency 2)Communist Russia will fall 3) Russia will preserve Christianity. The first two have come to pass and Christianity is under attack from all sides, which think could result in the fulfillment of the last predicition.

    Relative to your analysis of the West and its obvious impotence economically and militarily I sadly concur. I lay much of the blame on the US and its creation of NATO. With NATO Europe ceased investing in their military leaving the heavy lifting to America while they continued subsidizing their club med life style. In the meantime the US over committed their military in misguided attempts to bring representative government to Islamist countries that had no concept of any non-theocratic government. In the meantime the US focus on multi-culturalism has killed the American melting pot and fractured our society possibly beyond repair. France is feebly trying to overthrow the Islamists in Mali and Algeria with a force of 2000 supported (they hope) by other African nations. The Us has committed 10’s of thousands of highly trained and heavily armed troops fighting the Islamists without a great deal of success so the French approach almost seems laughable. As usual the lessons of history are being ignored. The Greeks defeated the Persians even though they were out numbered 10 to 1. The reason the Greeks won they were highly organized, highly motivated, and unified. The Persians lost because they had poor (too many languages) communications, weak leadership, and lacked motivation. For me at least the parallels to our current situation is striking.
