Defense Dept. Course Instructed ‘Total War’ on Muslims, Advocated ‘Hiroshima’ Tactics

The Defense Department taught students in the U.S. military that a “total war” against the world’s 1.4 billion Muslims is necessary to protect America from Islamic terrorists. The course material in the Joint Forces Staff College, since canceled for being “inflammatory,” instructed students that international laws protecting civilians in wartime are “no longer relevant,” and that we should apply “the historical precedents of Dresden, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki” to Islam’s holiest cities, and bringing about “Mecca and Medina[‘s] destruction.” The course material advocated targeting the “civilian population wherever necessary.”
