Lt. General Michael Flynn Challenging Americans To Join “The Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies”

By Michael Hernandez

FlynnMichaelGeneralCLEVELAND—One GOP Vice President hopeful is challenging Americans to join “The Field of Fight” and “Win the Global War Against Radical Islam” and to “get serious against this vicious, barbaric enemy.”

According to Robert Costa of The Washington Post, “After weeks of focusing on a group of current and former elected officials in his search for a running mate, Donald Trump is increasingly intrigued by the idea of tapping retired U.. army Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn to project strength and know-how on national security.  Flynn, a registered Democrat but fierce critic of President Barack Obama, previously ran the Defense Intelligence Agency.”

“The turn toward a military figure is being driven by Trump himself rather than by his advisers, because national unrest may demand a tough and steady presence alongside him on the ticket,” reports the Washington Post.

“There is precedent for populist candidates to pick a general as a running mate.  George Wallace, running in 1968, picked retired Air Force Gen. Curtis LeMay.  In 1992, Ross Perot picked retired Navy Adm. James Stockdale.”

“One person encouraging Trump to perhaps choose a general is Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.)” because “a general could excite voters from both parties who want to see wholesale change in domestic politics and an aggressive approach to combating terrorism.”

FieldofFightFlynn, is a Rhode Island native.  His book Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies” comes out today (July 12th).  Flynn was forced out of the Defense Intelligence Agency by President Obama in 2014 and some in Washington believe it was for telling a Congressional Committee that the American people are in more danger than we were just a few years ago.

“I wrote this book to show the war being waged against us.  This administration has forbidden us to describe our enemies properly and clearly:  They are Radical Islamists,” writes Flynn.  “I know our enemies better than most ‘experts’ and I’m plenty scared.  We could lose.  In fact, right now we’re losing” writes Flynn.  “To make matters worse, our political leaders insist that the war is going very well, and the scores of professional analysts who know better are being censored when they report the truth to their superiors.”

“We’re in a world war against a messianic mass movement of evil people, most of them inspired by a totalitarian ideology:  Radical Islam.  But we are not permitted to speak or write those two words, which is potentially fatal to our culture.  We can’t beat them if we don’t understand them and are afraid to define them, but our political leaders haven’t permitted that.  We’re not allowed to use the phrase ‘Radical Islam’ or ‘Islamist.’  That’s got to change,” writes Flynn.

“Once we’ve understood them, we’ve got to destroy them:  Here’s how:

  • We have to organize all our national power, from military and an economic to

Intelligence and tough-minded diplomacy.  It’s not cheap, and it’s probably going to last through several generations.

  • They must be denied safe havens, and countries that shelter them have to be issued a brutal choice; either eliminate the Radical Islamists or you risk direct attack yourselves.
  • We’ve got to attack the (Radical) Islamists everywhere and in every way. That most certainly includes attacking their evil doctrines and detailing their many failures.  Are we not fully entitled to tell the truth about them?

“We’ve got to step feeling the slightest bit guilty about calling them by name and identifying them as fanatical killers acting on behalf of a failed civilization.  Radical Islamists intend to create an even larger Islamic state based on the ancient precepts of Radical Islam and they are fully prepared to use absolute violence to achieve it.”

A bloodless battle strategy might also be considered. How about depending on our own oil resource more and even export oil to known allies, if they need it.

Other than sand and camels, the only thing these tyrants have is oil. They have no compulsion from using that money from their oil to continue and expand terrorism throughout the world. Deny them that income and all that’s left is sand and camels.

The only nation in the middle east that even approaches a Jeffersonian Democracy is Israel. The rest still live in the 13-14th century islam.
