U.S. Military Taught Officers: Use 'Hiroshima' Tactics for 'Total War' on Islam

Source: Danger Room | Wired.com

Army Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley, taught future military leaders at the Defense Department’s Joint Forces Staff College that a “total war” against the world’s 1.4 billion Muslims would be necessary to protect America from Islamic terrorists. The course has been canceled by the Pentagon brass, but Dooley still maintains his position at the Norfolk, Virginia college, pending an investigation.

Among the options considered for that conflict: using the lessons of “Hiroshima” to wipe out whole cities at once, targeting the “civilian population wherever necessary.”

For the better part of the last decade, a small cabal of self-anointed counterterrorism experts has been working its way through the U.S. military, intelligence and law enforcement communities, trying to convince whoever it could that America’s real terrorist enemy wasn’t al-Qaida — but the Islamic faith itself. In his course, Dooley brought in these anti-Muslim demagogues as guest lecturers. And he took their argument to its final, ugly conclusion.

“We have now come to understand that there is no such thing as ‘moderate Islam,’” Dooley noted in a July 2011 presentation (.pdf), which concluded with a suggested manifesto to America’s enemies. “It is therefore time for the United States to make our true intentions clear. This barbaric ideology will no longer be tolerated. Islam must change or we will facilitate its self-destruction.”

Mike Apatow had a radioactive stress test Wednesday, and was pulled over later in the day by a state police trooper after a radioactivity detector in the trooper's car was set off when Apatow passed. The detectors are used to help identify potential terror threats.

"I asked the officer `What seems to be the problem?' "
"He said `You've been flagged as a radioactive car.' "

State Police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance confirmed that many of the state police cars have the radioactivity detectors. "It's part of our homeland security operations here," Vance said. "It's just another layer of public safety that we have in this state."
