Solving For Urban Crime

[SinglePic not found] Solving for urban crime should be approached kind of like how the Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go into a little Turkish town somewhere; they’d find the first five guys they saw and they would crucify them. And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.

And so you make examples out of people who are, in this case, not compliant with the law. Find people who are not compliant with the law, and you hit them as hard as you can and you make examples out of them, and there is a deterrent effect there.

And, neighborhoods that are smart see that; they don’t want to play that game, and they decide at that point that it’s time to clean up. And, that won’t happen unless you have somebody out there making examples of people. So you go out, you look at an neighborhood, you find people violating the law, you go aggressively after them.

That’s my philosophy for solving for urban crime. You go into the ghettos and you crucify a few of the thugs. You make examples out of them and the rest of the hood toes the line.

And we do have some pretty effective enforcement tools. Compliance can get very high, very, very quickly.

You Can’t Do That!

The kindest, gentlest, and most civil cry from the Liberals and their minority tenants would be, “You can’t do that!” Most responses to this philosophy for solving for the Urban Crime question would be far more vicious and vitriolic, with some quarters making various threats of violence and insurrection in response to such practices.

Their response is, of course laughable – though history and current events have both shown Americans that the threats of violence from certain sorts must be taken seriously and dealt with accordingly – because their response is not based upon any sort of objective logic or moral standards.

Simply replace any reference I made to Urban Crime with violations of the EPA’s convoluted regulations and replace any references to neighborhoods or people with oil and gas companies and you have the statement that the EPA’s Region VI Administrator, Al Armendariz about his way of conducting operations in Texas.

Hear any Liberals or their minority tenants crying about tyranny, despotism, the police state, or anything over Al Armendariz’s way of running the EPA in his region? I sincerely doubt it.

The Sinai War

I have posted before that America was going to have to deploy a large number of troops to the Sinai Peninsula in the wake of the “Arab Spring” which deposed the government of Egypt and emboldened the anti-Semite Islamist vermin in the region. That prediction is looking more and more likely to reach fulfillment.

For the third time since the revolt in Egypt Muslim terrorists have attacked and damaged the North Sinai pipeline in the Sinai Peninsula that supplies natural gas to Israel and Jordan.

The Islamists, or their Bedouin proxies / dupes,  previously sabotaged it on February 5 and April 27 of this year.

Egypt can’t or won’t defend the pipeline effectively, Israel isn’t “allowed” to defend it, and the Multinational Force & Observers (MFO) will need significant increase in personnel to undertake a counter-terrorism / counter-insurgency role.

This means that the US will have to send in more troops and equipment to occupy and patrol the Sinai, and that those troops must be in sufficient force to withstand betrayal and attack by the Egyptian military forces which have been allowed, despite the accords of the 1981 Protocol to the Treaty of Peace to enter the Sinai in force.

The Sinai War that is coming is going to be particularly nasty, as much from the domestic fall-out as from the actual fighting.
