US Military Taught Officers: ‘Hiroshima’ Tactics For ‘Total War’ On Islam
“Taking war to a civilian population wherever necessary”

- Common Dreams staff
The U.S. military has been teaching its future leaders that a “total war” against the world’s 1.4 billion Muslims will be necessary to protect America from terrorists, according to documents released today in a stunning story in Wired's Danger Room.


A cartoon included in the Joint Staff Forces College presentation on "Jihad: Defined and Operationalized" contains a number of ugly stereotypes.
Hundreds of US military officers have enrolled in the course on Islamic radicalism since it was first offered four years ago at the Defense Department’s Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, Virginia.

Among the other chilling assertions in the documents:

advocating “total war” against the world’s Muslims
“taking war to a civilian population wherever necessary”
using the lessons of “Hiroshima” to wipe out whole cities at once
applying “the historical precedents of Dresden, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki” to Islam’s holiest cities, and bringing about “Mecca and Medina['s] destruction.”
“By conservative estimates,” 10 percent of the world’s Muslims, “a staggering 140 million people … hate everything you stand for and will never coexist with you, unless you submit” to Islam
International laws protecting civilians in wartime are “no longer relevant”
“We have now come to understand that there is no such thing as ‘moderate Islam,’” a July 2011 presentation states. “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.”

The class, led by Army Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley, was cancelled last month, and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff recently ordered the military to reexamine training material to be sure no similar content exists. Lt. Col. Dooley, still holds his position at the Joint Forces Staff College.

Wired's Danger Room reports:

The course, first reported by Danger Room last month and held at the Defense Department’s Joint Forces Staff College, has since been canceled by the Pentagon brass. It’s only now, however, that the details of the class have come to light. Danger Room received hundreds of pages of course material and reference documents from a source familiar with the contents of the class.

The commanders, lieutenant colonels, captains and colonels who sat in Dooley’s classroom, listening to the inflammatory material week after week, have now moved into higher-level assignments throughout the U.S. military.[...] the officer who delivered the lectures, Army Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley, still maintains his position at the Norfolk, Virginia college, pending an investigation. The commanders, lieutenant colonels, captains and colonels who sat in Dooley’s classroom, listening to the inflammatory material week after week, have now moved into higher-level assignments throughout the U.S. military.

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.”

International laws protecting civilians in wartime are “no longer relevant,” Dooley continues. And that opens the possibility of applying “the historical precedents of Dresden, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki” to Islam’s holiest cities, and bringing about “Mecca and Medina['s] destruction.”

Dooley’s ideological allies have repeatedly stated that “mainstream” Muslims are dangerous, because they’re “violent” by nature. Yet only a few of al-Qaida’s most twisted fanatics were ever caught musing about wiping out entire cities.

“Some of these actions offered for consideration here will not be seen as ‘political correct’ in the eyes of many,” Dooley adds. “Ultimately, we can do very little in the West to decide this matter, short of waging total war.”

Among the class materials:

Former FBI employee John Guandolo's action items (.pdf) for US military officers on what they can do to in their own communities to fight the "enemy."

What Can You Do

Educate yourselves about the true nature of the threat.
Assign someone within your group to do a deep dive on this so you begin developing an internal expert on this material.
Study the "Usual Responses" document.
Begin sharing this information with close friends and selected others individually. Then in very small groups. Learn from these encounters, and encourage them to challenge you.
Study Insurgencies and Counterinsurgencies. Understand that LOCAL POLICE are the tip of the spear, and this problem will be solved by citizens at the LOCAL level.
Know the ideological literature when you see it (Qutb, Maududi, etc). Possession of this material may change the threshold for "reasonable suspicion" and "probable cause" for law enforcement.
Identify key individuals in your community who are likely to be open to listening to this information. Prepare yourself. Practice. Give the presentation. Encourage them. Follow up.
Identify key Muslim Brothers and MB organizations in your community.
Develop a small group of like-minded patriots who have studied and understand the threat. Strategize to regain control of your community.
Do NOT over-organize. Think like the enemy. Be fluid.
Do not discuss your strategy publicly.
Know your allies.
Consider joining a grassroots organization - locally and nationally (ACT! For America for instance).
Those in the community who are assisting the enemy (wittingly or unwittingly) should be exposed. This can be done in a number of ways. Consider spending time recruiting/educating a member of the local media - especially a young, aggressive reporter from the local paper.
Put the heat on those elected officials helping the enemy. Be aggressive. Take a crowd to a city council meeting and demand action. This is one tactic that works.
Push back at every turn. Do not allow any compliance with Shari'ah at any level.
Study the foundational principles of America, the Declaration and the Constitution. We must know the enemy AND we must know ourselves.
Create an education campaign for the community that stresses TRUTH and FACTS.
Engage your local police department and city attorney on this issue. When speaking with attorneys ensure you keep your language focused on Islamic LAW and that it is diametrically opposed to Article 6 of the US Constitution.
Engage leaders of local churches and synagogues.
Initiate a relationship with a key member of your local town council, your state representative/senator, and your US Congressmen and Senators. Go slowly. Don't give them the entire block of information in one sitting. Ask them the questions - act concerned not over-the-top. Remain objective and UNEMOTIONAL. Be consistent.
Speak to the leadership of your state National Guard about the Islamic Movement.
Learn what is going on at the Islamic Schools and Mosques in your community. Request to see the teaching materials.
Attend functions at the local college when someone speaks truthfully about Islam and observe the reaction.
Go to the local mosques and ask them if you can speak at Friday prayers and share the Gospel with the attendees.
Engage your local FBI Field Office and ask them about the amount of training they receive on the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic Doctrine, and the Islamic Movement in the U.S. and across the globe.
Know that if you are effective, there will be push back from the other side - the MB. Have a TEAM assembled. Don't go it alone. Remember to target the good guys who are helping the bad guys first. If 'you go after a Muslim Brother to create a public issue, get help from someone with a deep level of knowledge on this and plan well. The MB has an entire machine ready to pounce on you. Don't give them the opportunity.
Remember - we are at war. Act like it. You are part of a resistance movement, not a social club.

Comparing our situation today, with that faced by an earlier generation who had to deal with the reality of the Nazi threat, General Pace suggested a simple solution to complying with his injunction: “read what our enemies have said. Remember Hitler…. He said in writing exactly what his plan was that we collectively ignored to our great detriment (emphasis added).” Just as we ignored Hitler’s articulation of his strategic doctrine in Mein Kampf, so too are we on the verge of suffering a similar fate today, if we fail to seriously assess the extremist threat based on jihadi strategic doctrine.

On page 3 of Stephen Coughlin’s pdf noted above, you’ll read
“Arab Spring” unrest in North Africa and Middle-East has opened a vacuum into which either liberal democracy or the Islamists will prevail (e.g. Muslim Brotherhood)
So, this undercurrent of what appears Christian fundamentalism, which I would point in the direction of the 1040 Window, has been thwarted, for the moment. Nonetheless, I’m positing that the names we know right now, Coughlin, Pace, and Guandolo, are affiliated with American religionists (fundamentalists, reconstructionists, dominionists, et al) whose groups are likely headquartered in Virginia.

John Guandolo is the featured FBI religionist in this
article, which also notes his work with Stephen
Coughlin. Several links in original. Highlights mine.

The Strange Case Of The Philandering,
Muslim-Threat-Hyping FBI Agent

— by Justin Elliott, TPMmuckraker | Sep 23, 2009, 2:01 PM

    An FBI agent who worked on the corruption case of former Louisiana Congressman William Jefferson resigned after superiors found a list he wrote of his sexual conquests with agents and a confidential source, according to court documents.

    The same agent
    , John Guandolo, who is married and who unsuccessfully solicited a $75,000 donation for an anti-terrorism group from a wealthy witness in the Jefferson case with whom he was having an affair, resigned from the FBI and appears to have landed on his feet on the speaking circuit playing up the threat of Islamic terrorism.

    The affair list was first reported by Allan Lengel at ticklethewire.com

    The relationship between Guandolo and key government informant Lori Mody, a former tech executive for whom Guandolo worked undercover as a driver, failed to derail the Jefferson conviction after a judge ruled it irrelevant this week.

    But the documents, filed back in June before the trial got underway, and only unsealed this week, offer a salacious picture of what was going on behind the scenes during a major corruption investigation.

    Read the full document here.

    Just days before the Jefferson trial got underway in June, Mody came to the FBI to reveal the affair:

      Ms. Mody explained to Special Agent Thibault that she and Mr. Guandolo were mildly intimate (but did not have sex) in New Orleans when Ms. Mody traveled there in April 2005 to attend an event hosted by Defendant Jefferson and to record communications she had with him. Ms Mody further reported that after the New Orleans trip she rebuffed 2-3 advances by Mr. Guandolo, including one in which she characterized Mr. Guandolo as inappropriately aggressive, but that she later had consensual sexual intercourse with Mr. Guandolo on two occasions in approximately May 2005.

    According to an FBI doc, Guandolo’s advances “took place in a car, [Mody’s] townhouse, or [Mody’s] parent’s house.”

    Despite having secretly recorded conversations for the FBI, Mody was never called to testify.

    At some point, Guandolo’s superiors saw the “document” that “detailed his affairs” with female agents and an internal probe was launched by the DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility, according to the court filing. In the document, which has not been released, Guandolo also says “he had had an intimate relationship with a confidential source that he thought could damage an investigation” — probably referring to Mody.

    But Guandolo resigned in December 2008, before he was interviewed by OPR. The office investigates only current employees, and the DOJ declined to comment on the Guandolo case. He later “expressed deep remorse for his actions” to the FBI.

    Mody also told the FBI that Guandolo approached her with information about five “anti-terrorism organizations,” including one affiliated with “a person named Emerson,” and wanted her to make a $75,000 donation to one of them. She declined.

    Emerson is probably Steven Emerson, author of Jihad Incorporated: A Guide to Militant Islam in the US, writer for David Horowitz’s Frontpagemag.com, and head of the Investigative Project on Terrorism. Emerson tells TPMmuckraker he was acquainted with Guandolo when he was an FBI agent, but the revelations about Mody are news to him.

    Perhaps it’s not a surprising that Guandolo has emerged issuing what can charitably be described as overheated warnings about Islamic extremism. From the Shelbyville Tennessee Times-Gazette in February:

      Every major Muslim organization is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, the former FBI agent said, which he said was formed to overthrow America and establish Islamic law.

      “They’re having great success of implementing Shariah law, I could give you a thousand examples,” Guandolo said.

    Guandolo, the Times-Gazette reported, worked on counterterrorism issues while at the FBI and now works with “Stephen Coughlin, former Islamic Expert for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.” He was not in when we called his home in Virginia

Al-Jazeera: Second anti-Islam military curriculum surfaces
By Miguel Llanos, msnbc.com

As the Pentagon reviews all military classes following the disclosure of one that advocated "total war" against Muslims, the news website Al-Jazeera reported Saturday that it had received materials from a similar course and that both were put together by the same group, a nonprofit that offers classes and workshops to military and government officials.

Al-Jazeera said it received course slides from an unnamed military officer who said "this bigoted conspiracy cabal is both disgusting and so deeply un-American."

The slides leave the impression that Hamas extremists have infiltrated the U.S. government, media and education via U.S. Islamic groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Al-Jazeera said.

The documents indicated the two courses were prepared by the consulting firm Strategic Engagement Group, Inc., Al-Jazeera said. The website for Strategic Engagement does include statements similar to those in the materials cited by Al-Jazeera, msnbc.com found.

The firm's website states its president, E.J. Kimball, was formerly a foreign policy counsel to Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., and created the bipartisan Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus.

Myrick earlier wrote to Pentagon chief Leon Panetta voicing her concern that "the political nature of these (class) reviews might inadvertently weaken" military training, Al-Jazeera noted.

Stephen Coughlin, VP of strategic communication initiatives, is described as "the leading expert in the United States on Islamic Doctrine" and a U.S. Army Reserve major with military intelligence expertise.

Story: Outrage over anti-Muslim materials in military training

The group says it formed in 2010 "for the purpose of exposing and defeating efforts to subvert the United States Constitution and subjugate the American People."

Strategic Engagement did not immediately respond to msnbc.com's request for comment on the Al-Jazeera report.

The slides indicate the course was approved by two retired three- star generals and former CIA Director James Woolsey, Al-Jazeera added.

*sniff*

Doesn't pass the smell test. psyops decoy of the doctrines of Total War in place since the 1930s.

Also an excellent way to viral market strategic activism advice to people who actually espouse those extremist beliefs. win-win.
