The Moslem Attack on Dakha Raises Questions, as to What Makes a Nation a Failed State

The following passage is from an op-ed by Krittivas Mukherjee, which was published only hours ago, in New Delhi’s Hindustan Times, in response to the Moslem Dakha attack: “Dhaka restaurant siege: How long before Bangladesh becomes a failed state?,” updated Jul 02, 2016, 11:25 IST [1:55 a.m.].

“In layman’s terms, a failing or failed state is categorised by what they do not or cannot do. Such states do not control their borders, allowing non-state actors to move in and out without trouble. Parts of such states can be under the control of rebels and warlords. Failed states do not provide basic services to its citizens, and finally they cannot fulfill international obligations.

“None of this is true of today’s Bangladesh. Yet, with every murder, every attack, the country is edging towards levels of intolerance and lawlessness where the line between a vibrant, prosperous country and a failed state gets blurred.”

The ability to control one’s borders is taken for granted in the Third World, and used to be taken for granted in America, but mention it here now, and one is denounced as a Nazi, not only by the racial socialists of the Democrat Party, but by self-styled principled “conservatives,” like speaker of the House Paul Ryan (Donors-WI), of the Republican Party, as well.

“None of this is true of today’s Bangladesh,” but it is certainly true of America.

We effectively have no borders, and no immigration laws. Black and Hispanic “rebels and warlords” controlled much of the country, even before the John Doe calling himself “Barack Hussein Obama” got himself illegally elected. Since then, “Obama” has accelerated the process of nation-destruction, by deliberately importing millions of the world’s most savage cut-throats, whom he calls “refugees.”

“A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation.” Ronald Reagan

I ask “conservatives” Paul Ryan, George Will, Bill Kristol, Mitt Romney, et al.: Was Ronald Reagan a Nazi?

“Obama” says that maintaining borders is “not who we are.” What he is saying, is that America is not a nation.
