MOHAMMAD CARTOON  

  Is the recent Mohammad cartoon psychological warfare?
  Commentry on the above Issue :
  One has to wonder about the timing and (predictable) reaction this cartoon had.

It could very well be a polarizing catalyst shaping the lines between "the west" (europe and the US) and the muslim world in an effort to develop a euro-american coalition against Iran.

Hope i'm wrong!

that is a very interesting perspective!

Interesting perspective alright;yet, if true it could be a nasty gamble.
Religion sometimes acts as a such a poweful cohesive agent that the implications for the West could be disastrous.
Look at the numbers (in terms of people); while the 'coalition' may have military might, there is oil on the other. With no love lost between the US & Venezuela, what will the coalition do for oil?

to Charles King...
I think that might exactly be the point. religion is a strong cohesive agent and catalyst, a polarizing factor that clearly defines the sides.

It might not only be about oil. Conflicting idiologies could be an integral part. despotic regimes v. democracy.

As for sheer numbers, the west believes in the quality doctrine whereas the countries in question follow the older soviet doctrine in general but are starting to apply a quality element (which is a worry to the west). - China is one such an example. Why would they need a fleet of 100 submarines if not to counterbalance our carrier based fleets in the south china sea?

Actually, I think the whole issue is much simplier. I don't believe this was a grand strategy or a consipiracy, but rather the publishing of the cartoons was (like almost all occurrances) simply an act designed to make a point or attract attention (i.e. readership). There was no grand coalition strategy here. Thus, the world is left with the fallout and we just have to make the best of it . . . How about if our leaders simply stated that uncivilized behavior (violence) will not be tolerated, and leave it at that. Of course, that stance needs to have some teeth in it. The perpetrators of violence will have to learn that Western society generally allows free speech, and within that territory we have to learn to live in a civilized fashion despite being surrounded by messages which are often disagreeable and sometimes offensive. In other words, if you riot here, you should then be thrown in jail, and we better be prepared to enforce that stance. If we make the point with action in the early going, we would nip a riot problem fast. So don't complicate things, stay strong and self-sufficient, treat people fairly and compassionately, and God will take care of the rest.
