Nightmare? No, it's a flashback

It's deja vu all over again. It's Groundhog Day.

Cue Sonny and Cher's, "I got you, Babe."

If only it were a nightmare! We'd wake up and only have to worry about our "president" bankrupting and disarming the world's only superpower.

Instead, it's the same abhorrent play performed on stages 'round the world year after year for the last one and one-half millennia.

Coming to a theater near you (if it isn't already there), a plot the most depraved playwright from Hell could conjure, here:
"…Deep inside the Pentagon...a nightmare scenario hangs in the air, unmentioned but unmistakable."
Like this one? A murderous, lying, thieving, raping, heretical pedophile receives self-serving revelations -- including the "divine" mandate to convert, subdue and humiliate, or kill those not of his faith. Obediently, his followers invade foreign lands and rape, enslave, and butcher its residents until those nations cease to exist.

That's no nightmare. That's a drama that's been played out on the stage of history for the last nearly one and one-half millennia throughout the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and parts of Europe.

Doing nothing in the face of an existential threat is foolish. Recognizing the Source and Sustenance of Jihad would go a long way toward enabling us to use our blood and treasure more effectively and efficiently.
