Operation Pouty Face

I did a lot of research on human trafficking and modern slavery before Mike Kupari and I wrote Swords of Exodus. It is a horrible, evil, and surprisingly gigantic thing. One thing I’m fairly sure of about the kind of people who do that sort of thing for a living, is that they really don’t give a shit about a bunch of American movie stars taking pouty selfies of themselves holding up signs with hash tag give our girls back. The disapproval of fat, soft, Americans on Facebook really doesn’t move them. They care about getting paid or getting killed, that’s about it. The self-righteous pouting is useless.

Don't tell me about it, got tell your husband. He's the one with the red phone.

Don’t tell me about it, go tell your husband. He’s the one with the red phone.

For the idiot libprog pussies with the selfies, the world is a violent place, filled with violent men. If you actually want something to be done about these evil people, maybe you shouldn’t bitch, whine, and moan every time our military takes action against evil people. It seems odd to me that the same people demanding military action for this are the same ones that complain about military action for anything else. Oh, but wait, I forgot, the left has no overriding principles, and to them violence is always bad unless their guy does it, and evil is relative depending on how it trends on Twitter.

This kidnapping event made the news, but this sort of thing happens every day somewhere in the world. You’re shocked and outraged about this, but that just shows how little you know about the subject. There are plenty of outrageous acts of evil out there to choose from. You can take useless photos of yourself holding up a sign, but it will do nothing other than prove to your fellow idiots that you care so hard.

You want to actually do something? You can demand that America truly be World Cop and swoop in to kill all the bad people every time they do something bad somewhere… Only if you really want that, then you probably shouldn’t bitch continually about the American military doing violent things to violent people. The problem is in reality we couldn’t afford to kill every bad person, we couldn’t pull it off anyway, and it isn’t really our problem.

Real men don't punch out their wives either. And Hugo Chavez's political machine just "allocated" girls. Totally different.

Real men don’t punch out their wives either. And Hugo Chavez’s political machine just “allocated” girls. Totally different.

But if your selective outrage is really up in arms about this one, movie stars with the hash tag, I’ve got a simple solution for you. Take some of your millions of dollars and hire some mercenaries to go into Africa to shoot all the members of Boko Haram. I wonder how that would trend on Twitter. #gurkhaskillscumbags

But the left hates the private sector, so hiring Blackwater (or whatever they are named this week) to gleefully give slavers some stylish new 5.56 body piercings is out of the question. So we’re back to being useless or taking military action. And if we drop Navy SEALs on these assholes, you guys really need to think through how come it is okay for our guys to kill these woman abusing assholes, but not other woman abusing assholes. Those assholes, left wingers invite to speak at Ivy League colleges.

The real solution? Nigeria is one of dozens of screwed up countries. If Nigeria wants to be truly safe from slavers and madmen, it is going to require the Nigerians defend themselves from assholes, and if the Nigerian government won’t do it, then the Nigerian government needs to be replaced by Nigerians who want something better. For the thousands of other evil events that don’t trend on Twitter, replace Nigeria with whatever lawless hellhole country is in question and you get the same answer. People get freedom when they demand it for themselves.

 

Real Men provide their wives and daughters with guns so they can shoot kidnappers in the face. Real Countries have laws and exterminate slavers like vermin.

Real Men provide their wives and daughters with guns so they can shoot kidnappers in the face. Real Countries have laws and exterminate slavers like vermin.

On the Real Men Don’t Buy Girls campaign… Holy shit… Seriously? That is so blindingly obvious that it takes a campaign on Twitter? “OMG! I was totally buying some child brides for my harem and then I saw that Ashton Kutcher said slavery was bad! LOL. I would have been soooo embarrassed!” said no Saudi prince ever.

Sometimes I wish that Exodus was a real organization—a bunch of warriors dedicated to brutally killing slavers and evil warlords in the places where law has broken down and chaos rules—only in real life I bet the morons holding up the signs on Twitter would complain about what horrible violent cismale gendernormative colonialists they were. They’d probably come up with a catchy hash tag or something.

Jewish Halacha, BTW, used to be that you redeem Jewish slaves. Then, as people caught on, it changed to “redeem slaves, but not for more than their market price”.

Thing is, this isn’t really our business and, even if it were, nothing we can or are likely to do will be effective. On the other hand, we _could_ tell the Christians. mostly Igbo and Ibibio, “Secede again; we’ll support you this time and turn a blind eye to the ethnic cleansing you’ll have to engage in.” And the Igbo are far and away the _most_ capable people in Subsaharan Africa. They could make a real country. Fairly prosperous one, too, what with the oil for starter capital. Wouldn’t help these kidnapped girls but could prevent future kidnappings.

Except
A: Obama doesn’t have the balls to actually give troops the orders that would count: “Find the enemy. Kill them. Save the hostages. Air support will be provided as called for.”

B: If Obama DID give the orders, the troops would be under such idiotic ROE that they’d accomplish little and some of them wind up dead. Because “Public relations, and me not being called names by the EU and African leaders, is more important than peas- er, soldiers lives.”

I seriously think that you are underestimating the power of love and understanding. If we just show the slavers love (because they obviously came from poor backgrounds were abuse was common place) they will find the inner child within them. Then it will be healed and they realize how horrible they have been and stop selling children. They will even go forth and spread the joys of love and understanding among the slaver community. This love will infect them like a virus and make all the world a brighter place, with sunshine, rainbows and rivers of chocolate that children play… Read more »

I’m curious about the legality of hiring a paramilitary organization to go shoot up Boko Haram. Is that against some international law? Is it more illegal than a country sending military people in?

I think the applicable law would be Nigerian law. Of course, they couldn’t be mercenaries because that would be illegal. Instead, they’d be a private security and crime prevention company.

BTW, I think they really wouldn’t function as mercenaries under international law. They’re not participating in a war between recognized states, but attacking private criminals.

Tom Kratman
Guest

Ummm..not exactly. Though tranzilaw has attempted to use piracy to justify universal jurisdiction, as piracy was so “heinous,” in fact, to the victims, piracy and privateering were usually indistinguishable. The difference is that privateers, being licensed by a state, were responsible to that state for their conduct, which made the state responsible to oversee and police them. It was the lack of a state over them that made pirates hosti generis, not what they did or where they did it.

Of course, one could cross over from one status to the other and many did.

Andrew
Guest

Curiosity: Would it be practical for a state sponsoring privateers to use its oversight to enforce “law of war” codes of conduct upon them? If a state could effectively do so, would such a power need privateers in the first place? Are privateers just an excuse for paying one group of criminals to target another? If part of the motive for hiring privateers is their ability to operate outside the parameters of the power’s own forces, wouldn’t imposing codes of conduct eliminate a great deal of their efficacy?

Tom Kratman
Guest

Absolutely practical. The thing with privateers, though, the reason that they were used, was that they’re _cheap_, and can even make the state a profit. (Yes, yes, occasionally plausible deniability cropped up there, too.)

Andrew
Guest

They may be financially cheaper. However, I’m not sure they’re practical if your organization can’t tolerate their normal tactics and behavior. Obviously, if you can deny responsibility, you can tolerate their tactics (practically speaking), but I don’t know if that would fly. Though, I suppose that’s what a CIA is for.

Sometimes you encounter a gun-grabber who claims that the Second Amendment only applies to the weapons that were in use at the time (“Sure, you can have a muzzle-loading musket, but not a scary black rifle”).

I like to point out that at the time of ratification private individuals could, and did, own fully armed and crewed ships of war, which (just to twist the knife) they operated for profit.

The United States never signed the treaty outlawing privateers. Congress still has constitutional authority to issue letters of marque and reprisal.

One of the plot points of Poul Anderson’s THE STAR FOX was that the world government failed to forbid its member states from issuing letters of marque and reprisal, and the main characters get in their privately built and own warship and go. It’s is a pretty good story.

For the record, the last instance of an actual privateer I’ve heard of was surprisingly recent. Within living memory, in fact: the US War Department commissioned the Goodyear Blimp to patrol coastal waters, on the lookout for German U-Boats during the Second World War. In an age before radar and nuclear submarines, this made sense: long visual range, good radio conditions, extreme loiter times – it was a natural fit. I think they carried a rifle or two, but their biggest weapons were binoculars and radios. Congress drew up a full-on Letter of Marque to make it official. So, that… Read more »

I so totally agree. Of course, the whole liberal concept that all people are basically good is flawed, and of course since all people are good, this whole picture thing will make the bad guys feel guilt and of course they will return the girls to their families and make nice.

Well, you see, kidnapping children for sexual purposes apparently isn’t innately political.

To an adversarial ear, the libertines’ insistence that we tolerate diversity when it comes to sexual practices sounds inclusive of that sort of stuff.

Or it could be the school of thought that feels that ‘culture’ excuses a multitude of sins, presuming we aren’t talking the western Judeo-Christian sort of ‘sin’.

You have noticed, I hope, that at no point do I ever demean and oppress women. Quite the opposite. You make an accusation I frankly do not understand. My comment was this: “They want equality of women without the chivalry and chastity and other uniquely Christian social artifacts which alone make equality of women possible.” Please look at what the words actually say. There are three statements: 1. Without chivalry, no equality for women. Chivalry is the mystical adoration of men who are willing to defend women with their lives rather than exploit them or allow see them exploited. It… Read more »

Don’t see many of those. More often “Free Darfur” stickers the libprogs put on their smart cars to feel like they’re “doing something.”

Which is what liberalism is about these days: feeling good. Be it feeling good about stopping perceived social injustice from bigots (like Larry), feeling good about stopping genocide by “raising awareness”, or feeling good about helping the poor with handouts they just get dependent on. There’s no logic. There’s not even any selflessness, no matter what they say. It’s all about doing things that make them feel good.

HIRE some very good mercs to go kill boko haram or whatever his name is and his followers and rescue the girls, but pay a big fat bonus if they’re able to do it while making it look like a totally different group did it.

Pass the blame, rescue the girls, kill the scumbuckets. Problem solved, libprogs don’t know any better, everybody wins.

Hmm…

That’s a sign of things starting to get very interesting. On the one hand, regions with large amounts of lawlessness *need* to have a local armed citizenry. On the other hand, governments start to get very touchy about that sort of thing because the locals are effectively a local army that the government doesn’t control. And also because once the fighting’s done, the locals don’t always put down their arms.

How the Nigerian government reacts to the news that the locals are arming up will be very important.

The problem with arming villagers in that part of the world is that they don’t always go back home quietly when they’re done. So while it’s a very good short term solution, it can have bad long-term repercussions. You can end up with a situation like Afghanistan or Somalia with a self-styled “warlord” in every other village. Of course, it’s not at all hard to get weapons in that region. But actively encouraging the formation of militias (what is really needed before those armed villagers can do much good) is always risky.

Russia’s got Chechnya just across the border. If we had a similar situation, then something like Beslan might be realistic. But it takes a lot more effort and resources to plan something like that when your target is seperated from you by a massive ocean.

Be useful, Wikipedia!: In the town of Maiduguri, where the group was formed, the residents dubbed it Boko Haram.

For certain. There’s also a strange dichotomy in that thought when it comes to liberal progressives. For instance, libprogs don’t like state-building, referring to it with disdain as imperialism and tyranny. As such, they advocate defunding and dismantling the military.

How cool would that be? Anyone can donate to kill any militant belligerent in any non-westernized country! We could ask Vladimir Putin to let some of his former spec-op types go do the killin’ without official sanction. I’m sure he’d just put up the footage on “Russia’s Zaniest Insurgent Killing Videos!” It could be sold as, “Funded by the decadent West, entertaining the masses in the East, and making sure developed nations and innocents worldwide have less a**holes irritating them all around!”

A hundred years ago the world had a very effective organization to suppress slavery. The British army in the Sudan, the Royal Navy in West Africa, in the Red Sea and other tropic paradises put a lot of slavers out of business and stopped desert bandits from raiding agricultural villages in many dusty locales. But long before Gandhi began his agitating, most Americans had decided the British Empire mostly consisted of sadists grinding the faces of noble brown and black victims. Even during WWII FDR was quite explicit about his aim of dismantling the empires of his British, French, Dutch,… Read more »

But Christian men who openly declare that women should not be allowed to speak in church – by inference having any kind of insight or authority from which men can learn – , should be submissive to their husbands, and are apparently incapable of casting an intelligent vote in the democratic process — those men are absolutely in the same class of men as fundamentalist Islamic men. Because both demonstrate a belief that women are less than men, and should be denied the rights enjoyed by men, and use the flimsy cover of religion to justify their bigotry.

Why bring God into it?

If you belittle the “opposite sex”, then there’s something wrong with you (male or female).

On the other hand, people who equate Conservative Christians (of any sort) with Muslims who kidnapped and enslave girls IMO don’t show much intelligence.

Eamon J. Cole
Guest

You don’t name specific organizations or people holding these philosophies, so it’s difficult to answer to the charge. Particularly in the absence of the theology they’re using to support their position.

But I’m going to have to trend to Paul’s side here, equating men of whatever religious persuasion holding whatever particular views in an American society where women have the freedom and power to walk away with the atrocities perpetuated against women and female children in some parts of the world is — a bit reprehensible.

How about the hashtag #exterminatebokoharam ? There’s a cause I’d support. For a thousand years or more, it has been the slavers that were themselves AFRICAN (Saharan and sub-Saharan), that did all the raiding, killing and ravaging on land, before selling the survivors off to those with ships (and these days, much like prior to 1600, most of the shipments go east to Asia). This incident just restates the ugly truth in a way that the libs can’t bear (like the revelations that, for example, one of the most heralded books on the subject was a mix of plagiarism and… Read more »

“REAL MEN DON’T: Stare at Mars”

Wait a minute. John Carter of Virginia stared at Mars and got teleported there when he was dead, found out he was superstrong and able to read minds, fell in love, and kicked ass all the way from the south pole to the north pole to recover this bride, and became warlord of the planet, all while buck naked except for a warbelt. And all from staring at Mars.

It’s from the book. He dies in the cave, and the Apache are unwilling to enter. He looks down and sees his own dead body, goes outside, sees Mars, and salutes it as the patron of his own soldierly profession. Then he is transported to the Red Planet.
