The Battle of Lepanto

This day in 1571.

Thank God we won then. Are we capable of doing it again? Do we have the will? We might very well be put to the test.

A 1989 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, he is a retired artillery officer in the United States Marine Corps, with time in both the active and reserve sides. He served in Iraq in 2004, and in Afghanistan in 2009-2010. He joined the magnificent OPFOR.com as a guest blogger from the now defunct but never uninteresting Rule 308, where he denounced gun control and other aspects of tyranny, and proclaimed the greatness of the United States. When the sun set on OPFOR.com, he migrated here with Keydet1976 and the others.

    Lepanto is being fought today in small skirmishes in Paris, Brussels, San Bernadino, Orlando, Stockholm, Nice, Leeds, Madrid, London, Cologne, and dozens of other larger and smaller places. And in each case, the muhammedans are winning. The Pontiff, rather than recognizing the existential threat as he did 445 years ago, is now complicit in the infiltration and destruction. Western governments are now the ‘anti-Holy League”, standing for nothing and willing to defend nothing whatsoever.

    Arm up. It will fall to the individual citizens. Those not already subsumed by the filthy, brutal tide, and the persecution by their own formerly-representative governments.

    “But they always kept up with our progress, and lately word would come,
    That a tribe had been wiped off its ice-field, or the lights had gone out in Rome.”

    It is going to be dark, for an extended period.

      Yes, it will be, and sadly so. WRSA frequently makes the same case and admonishes us to study the Irish and the Poles for examples of the preservation of long-term national identity.
