We're back! After taking the month of August in forced hiatus due to technical problems, we are back strong with the podcast today. This week on a lengthy podcast, McQ and I discuss the Rumsfeld speech from last week, and cover a number of issues that arise from it.

Glad you guys are back, great podcast.

I have to disagree with your comments on the term islamo-nazi. I think its more apt now, as it relates to our current prominent threat.

Immediately after 9/11 the term most used was islamic terrorism. Our most dominant and immediate threat, bin Laden, is basically an extremist fundamentalist wahabiist who commits terrorism. Stateless, and his desired ends have little to no parallel to naziism or fascism.

After a while, with the Taliban disbanded, al Qaeda and other low-level stateless actors were taking a wait-and-see approach, we were more apt to hear about islamic-fascism. The obvious target being Saddam, who is more of a fascist or even dictator than simply terrorist. And to a lesser extent the historical issues of other islamic dictators like in PLO, Syria, Libya etc. With lower level cells temporarily inactive, it was time to look at the state sponsors.

Today’s threat seems to be headquartered in Iran. Here, I think the nazi link has some legs. There are some big differences between nazi germany in 1938 and modern day Iran, as mentioned in the show. But the visceral reaction to the broader boogy man of ideologies, namely "nazi" and all it implies, can and should apply to Iran.

After all, how much do "neo-nazis" actually have to do with the german national socialist movement? Hitler was an atheist, neo-nazis purport to be christians. It boggles my mind that I still run into people who see Hitler’s Nazi party as a right wing entity because of their reverse affiliation with neo-nazis.

I don’t want to repeat too much of what I had written in a different thread but I will say that Iranian hitler worship goes way back. And, what does the word "iran" mean in Persian?
