THE FRIEND OF MY ENEMY IS MY ENEMY | 2005-03-12
One of the tactics of war is concealment. Everyone is familiar with the camouflage worn by soldiers and painted on military vehicles. The enemy can't strike what he can't see.
Modern warfare has evolved more advanced forms of concealment. Instead of trying to hide troops and vehicles and weapons from the enemy with camouflage, armies create fake targets, making it much harder for the enemy to find the real ones. The plan is to get them to use up ammunition on non-existent targets, while keeping the real targets hidden.
Respectables play this role for the left and the neocons. They create all sorts of false issues to take up the time and resources of the little guy who actually wants to do something. Before these people can find the real targets, respectables have worn them out and exhausted them with incidental issues.
As long as a respectable can perform this function, he is important to the left. Of course, they have no use for him once he is no longer able to perform this function effectively. That is why the respectable must work so hard to keep up appearances.
In real war, such behavior is called "aiding and abetting the enemy." Such people are called traitors.
One can bet that the Mohammedans knew what to do with traitors.
Maybe we can learn a bit from diversity after all.
