Radical Islam has a problem. It can't deal with sexuality in any sort of healthy psychological way.
That's why this is such a brilliant, perfect comment to respond to bin Laden:
"This is about the best he can do," Townsend said of bin Laden. "This is a man on a run, from a cave, who's virtually impotent other than these tapes."Islam can't deal with the allegation of impotence. Marine units in Iraq literally broadcasts the Arabic equivalent of "Al Qaeda has erectile dysfunction" over loudspeakers because it sends them into a tactically worthless rage.
Americans should exploit this aspect of the enemy. It's a psychological pressure point that we can use to our advantage. I'd love to see more of this type of talk.
