Roman Army 600 AD

(Christian Roman Army 600 AD.)

Yes, you are reading that correctly. The Christian Roman Empire and it’s Army existed in 600 AD. One of the biggest lies taught in American schools is that Germanic barbarians invaded the Roman Empire and destroyed it in 476 AD and that these same barbarians then caused the Dark Ages since they destroyed all the Roman infrastructure. This version of history is a total lie invented by British historians in the 1700’s. The truth is that it was the jihad of the 7th century that destroyed the Classical Greco-Roman civilization.

The Barbarian invasions are not a clear cut event as taught. Groups such as the Goths and Franks were not invaders of the Roman Empire, on the congtrary they served in the Roman legions and adopted the Latin language as theirs. The Franks defended Rome’s Rhine frontier around what is now Belgium.

Franks

In fact, the founder of the post-Roman Frankish Kingdom in Gaul; Clovis was himself a Roman official. The Gallo-Roman nobles kept their lands and power under the Frankish Kings and they were the backbone of that regime. Roman civilization continued in Gaul until the mid 7th Century.

The Goths who have been demonized actually were the keepers and defenders of the Roman flame, before their migration into the Roman Empire, the occupied Dacia (Romania) as a vassal state of the Emperor. When the Asiatic Huns invaded their lands, they fled into the Roman Empire because they were part of the Roman military as the first line of defense. Yes they fought the Romans at Adrianople, but that was due to mistreatment by the Romans.

Adrianople(Battle of Adrianople)

As you see from the above illustration, the Goths wore the same Armour and used the same tactics as the Romans. That is because they were part of the Roman Army and guarded the Danube frontier in Dacia. Alaric who sacked Rome in 401 AD, was a Roman general who did so because he wanted his men who were Roman soldiers to get land and he wanted a promotion. After his death the Visigoths were given Aquitaine (in what is now Southwestern France) and Spain, were they drove out a real invading tribe; the Vandals into North Africa.

At the Battle of the Catalaunian Plains in central Gaul, when the Huns a Asiatic tribe had the Roman Empire at its throat, the Goths and Franks as Roman soldiers defended the Empire and won. Here is an excerpt I took from a book on this battle.

Gothic Cavalry Gothic Cavalry2

As you see the alleged Barbarian Visigoths now based in Aquitaine and Spain were the cavalry arm of the Roman Army. They even were clean shaven like the Romans and spoke Latin, not a Germanic language. In the 500’s the Gothic Kings governed their Regnum Hispania (Kingdom of Spain) as Viceroys for the Emperor in Constantinople. In Spanish history, they are called the Gothic Monarchs and per official documents from that time period, they named their Kingdom: Hispania(Spain) and all people within it both Gothic and Roman were known Hispani (Spanish). All official documents in Gothic Spain were dated on how the Emperor in Constantinople was. In other words, Spain was a vassal/client state of the still existing Roman Empire.

The below video shows hos the Gothic Monarchs kept Roman civilization going in Spain. At 1:50 into the video, you will see the Gothic Monarchs did frescoes and dressed Roman style.

After this evidence, it is clear the Franks and Goths were not Barbarians. They were an immigrant groups within the Roman Empire who composed much of the army. They ruled their regions as Roman officals and promoted Roman culture.

One of the real invaders of the Empire were the Vandals. They eventually took over Roman Africa with Carthage as their capital and ruled there until 533, when the Roman Army under Belisarius crushed them. The Vandals were not exterminated, the survivors were incorporated into the Roman army and Vandal officials were turned into Roman officials.

Other invaders were the Anglo-Saxons, who after a century of warfare with the remnants of the Roman Army led by Romano-Briton leaders such as Aurelius Ambrosius and the legendary Artorious were victorious in the 570’s. The remnants of the Romano-Britons were pushed into what is now Wales and they lost their Latin identity and adopted a Celtic one.

The Lombards occupied parts of Italy after the death of Justinian and pushed the Romans to coastal enclaves such as Ravenna, Genoa, Rome, Naples and Venice. After the initial invasion in 568, the Lombards quickly adopted the Latin language and the Roman culture. To this day, Northern Italy is called Lombardy.

As you see it was not the barbarians who destroyed Roman civilization. Here is map of the Mediterranean in 600 AD.

Roman Empire 600AD

Therefore Rome did not fall in 476 AD as is claimed. The Roman Empire or as it was officially known in Latin: Imperium Romanorum or in Greek: Basileum un Rhomoi still existed. Yes the office of Western Emperor was ended by Odoacer, who was a Roman general. The Empire survive in the east with Greek as it’s official tongue and under Justinian in the 500’s retook Italy and North Africa. The Spanish and Franks were Latin speaking vassals/allied states of the Empire. Roman Civilization was intact in 600 AD. But this was about to change so that by late 650 AD, the Classical civilization of the Mediterranean was dead and the Dark Ages started.

The Arab Muslims with their destructive Jihadi wars destroyed this civilization. 2 events weakened the Classical Greco-Roman civilization. First was the Plague of Justinian, which was the 1st manifestation of the Black Death and left a manpower shortage in the Roman Empire. Second was the final Roman-Persian war which left both Empires weakened and open to the Jihadist assault.

Dr. Bill Warner who holds a PhD in Physics and math using data of the time period, proves via scientific methods that Islam not the alleged barbarians destroyed the Classical Greco-Roman civilization of the Mediterranean region.

We have been lied to as who was responsible for the Dark Ages. It was the Islamic Jihadis who destroyed that great and beautiful civilization and knocked what as left of the Christian world into a Dark Age that lasted from 650-950 AD.

4 books on this subject are:

Mohammed and Charlamagne by Henri Pirenne.

Holy Warriors: Islam and the Demise of Classical Civilization by John J O’Neil.

Barbarian Migrations and the Roman West, 376-568 by Guy Halsall.

Justinian’s Flea: The First Great Plague and the End of the Roman Empire by William Rosen.

Robert Spencer has also written about this in many of his books.

Islam is not a civilization, it is an anti-civilization that preys on what it conquers. It is a black hole for human thought, innovation and most importantly for the human spirit.

Consider this fact – all the great cities mentioned in the New Testament (the Gospels, the Acts, and the Epistles)  such as Jerusalem, Tyre, Ephesus, Tarsus, Damascus, Palmyra,  Antioch, Berytus (Beirut), Alexandria,  Edessa, and Aleppo were  all Christian in the 7th century until the Islamic imperialists conquered them. Yet somehow the Crusaders are the historical villains.

Update: Here is map of the Islamic destruction of the Classical world.

Offensive and Defensive Lawfare: Fighting Civilization Jihad in America’s Courts

Lawfare – the use of litigation and other judicial instruments to achieve policy outcomes – has long been employed by the U.S. progressive movement. In recent years, it has become a favored weapon of the Left’s allies in the Muslim Brotherhood and other parts of the global jihad movement in America.

In particular, organizations in this country that front for the Brotherhood and its Palestinian franchise, Hamas, such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), have wielded lawfare both strategically and tactically. Their focus typically involves efforts to create and promote victimization narratives for Islam. They seek to silence their critics and put the American public and policy-makers on the defensive in the face of the global and domestic threat from a jihad or holy war) driven by the dictates of the Islamic supremacist doctrine known as shariah.

ISIS’s female Gestapo wreaks terror on their own sex

Yazidi and Christian women being sold as ISIS slaves
A group of captured Yazidi and Christian women are chained together and marched to a sickening sex slave market where they are sold to become wives for Islamic State fighters

Daily Mail (UK): They bite and whip any woman who steps out of line and force girls to become sex slaves. Most shocking of all? SIXTY of them are British

The loud knock on the family’s farmhouse door was at midnight as they got ready for bed. Outside, five Islamic State fighters, Kalashnikovs hung on their shoulders and faces hidden by black scarves, were searching for girls to kidnap.

‘We opened the door and they saw my wife’s teenage sisters Sabiha and Sajida. The fighters told us they were going to steal them because they were beautiful,’ says Kafi Osman, anger still burning in his eyes at the memory.
‘We cried and the girls wept as they were led outside and driven away in an open truck. We have heard nothing of them since.’

The girls’ kidnap in the northern Iraqi town of Makhmur came as jihadis from Islamic State (also known as IS and Isis) took control of it street by street. They beheaded men, raped women and then captured their trophies of war — virgins to be sex slaves or jihadi brides.

The Osman family now believe that Sabiha, 18, and Sajida, 16, are prostitutes in Raqqa, a seven-hour drive across the Iraqi border in Syria and the Islamic State’s self-proclaimed capital, awash with jihadi fighters.

It is a place of medieval barbarism, terror, torture, abuse and odious controls over the 100,000 women who live there. Some women are trapped in the city against their will.

They did not escape before IS marched in two years ago, building a Sharia court on the football pitch and imposing a regime where grisly public executions take place by stoning and crucifixion in the main square after mosque prayers on a Friday.

Others are radicalised jihadi brides from the West, including three pupils from Bethnal Green, East London, who were pictured last week walking in the town with a woman minder in a burka holding a Kalashnikov.

The third group of women are the unfortunates kidnapped in enemy territory by IS fighters, taken to Raqqa, and imprisoned in a life of sex slavery.

Whatever the reason for living in this hellish place, all women are prohibited from going outside or travelling without a male relative. Islamic State imposes a strict dress code demanding all females from puberty upwards wear two gowns to hide their body shape, black gloves to cover their hands, and three veils so their faces cannot be seen, even in direct sunlight.

Women have been publicly buried alive in sand for breaking the code. One former Syrian schoolteacher trapped in the city told Channel 4 in a documentary, Escape From Isis, to be aired next week: ‘We have no freedom. We cannot go out on the balcony or look through the window. They will arrest a woman if she wears perfume or raises her voice. A woman’s voice cannot be heard.’

The teacher told of her horrifying capture by the city’s ruthless all-women police unit, the Al-Khansa brigade, created to enforce IS rules. ‘They said my eyes were visible through my veil. I was tortured. They lashed me. Now some of them punish women by biting. They give you the option between getting bitten or lashed.’

As many as 60 British women, including Aqsa Mahmood, the 20-year-old Glaswegian woman who left her family to become an Islamic State apparatchik last year, are thought to be members of the brigade. They are paid up to £100 a month, a fortune in the Islamic State bad-lands.

One former Al-Khansa enforcer, a young Syrian woman called Umm Abaid, told the filmmakers how she had led a normal life until the arrival of IS and the imposition of Sharia law in Raqqa, once a cosmopolitan city where the sexes mixed freely.

‘I went to school, to coffee shops,’ she said, ‘but slowly, slowly my husband [a Saudi Arabian IS fighter killed in a suicide bomb attack] convinced me about Islamic State and its ideas. I joined the brigade and was responsible for enforcing the clothing regulations.

‘Anyone who broke the rules, we would lash. Then we would take her male guardian, her brother, father or husband, and lash him, too.

‘Even when I was off duty, if I was with my husband in the car and we saw a woman dressed wrong, he would stop and tell me to deal with her.

‘I remember one woman walking with her husband wearing a robe with images on it. We arrested her and took her to the Al-Khansa base. I lashed her with my own hands.’

Umm fled to Turkey after IS tried to force her to remarry within weeks of her husband blowing himself up.

The terrifying brigade even stops buses to check women passengers. If one is found breaking the code, all the passengers are forced to get off and the bus is refused permission to proceed. The driver can be lashed because he let the woman on board.

Some of the Al-Khansa members operate undercover, posing as housewives, mingling in the crowds to listen for any dissent.

They also run brothels where kidnapped girls, like Sabiha and Sajida, are expected to satisfy fighters returning from battle. Those who have escaped, by a miracle, say they have slept with 100 different fighters in a few weeks.

Even girls who have gone willingly to Raqqa, thinking they were going to marry one fighter, have found they are expected to spend a week with their new ‘spouse’ before they are ‘divorced’ by an Islamic cleric and married to another fighter for a week.

And so the marriage merry-go-round goes on.

Yet, incredibly, still more Muslim girls and women from Europe, and notably the UK, are arriving in Raqqa to join IS. What can possibly induce them to run away to join its ranks?

Emily Dyer, a research fellow with the Henry Jackson Society, a respected Westminster think-tank, spends hours each day tracking social media messages sent to the West by jihadi brides.

‘The fighters are seen as lions and wives as lionesses raising future jihadists,’ she says. ‘Joining up is seen as an adventure for girls who are bored with life here. You cannot overestimate the seductive attraction of IS to some of them. They see Muslims being attacked abroad and want to do something about it.

‘Even the violence and sexual abuse against women don’t seem to stop them leaving. In Britain, they are exposed to a barrage of brainwashing on social media coming from the Islamic State. It tells them that not supporting the “cause” is wrong. There is strong moral pressure on Muslim women to go and play their part in building an IS caliphate.’

Explaining the recruitment process, she says: ‘Their friends come online with a cool new identity and tell them it is paradise, with groceries supplied, medical help for free, a place to stay. They meet a fighter online, he proposes, and says come to Syria.

‘It sounds an attractive option when being a Muslim woman in the West may be a hard prospect.’ Emily suggests the possible difficulties: perhaps a forced marriage, a limited life outside the home, and a lack of freedom compared with their non-Muslim peers.

Once they arrive, their dreams can be shattered. Emily’s analysis of internet messages shows that many jihadi brides find Raqqa a shock. Under IS prohibitions, single women live in all-female safe houses called maqqars. If they are married, they must be only mothers or housewives unless selected to be IS ‘enforcers’ or fighters.

A girl tracked by Emily on Twitter said: ‘I’m fed up. They make me do the washing up.’ Another said: ‘I’ve done nothing except hand out clothes and food. I help clean weapons and transport dead bodies from the front. It’s beginning to get really hard.’ One complained: ‘My iPod doesn’t work any more. I have to come back [to the West].’

A fourth wrote: ‘They want to send me to the front but I don’t know how to fight.’

Another grim glimpse of life in Raqqa emerged last weekend from Amira Abase, who was 15 when she and fellow Bethnal Green GCSE pupils Shamima Begum, 16, and Kadiza Sultana, 15, ran away from home in February. Two of the girls have since married jihadi fighters, although they refuse to say which of them is still single.

Amira, in messages on Twitter and Kik Messenger (an encrypted service) said that women in maqqars are forbidden access to mobile phones or the internet. They are then prepared for marriage to a jihadi, even if they are young teenagers. ‘The Prophet Mohammed’s favourite wife, Aisha, got married to him when she was nine,’ she said.

She advised British girls wanting to join IS not to tell their families, to bring as much money as possible, ‘lots of bras’, black khimars (long Islamic dresses) and black niqabs (full face veils) — ‘you can’t leave the house without a niqab.’

It was fear of IS’s treatment of women that led Kafi Osman, a 27-year-old Iraqi Kurd and Muslim, to flee with his 44-year-old wife Balqesa and children, Sara, four, and Elaf, three, the day after Sabiha and Sajida were taken.
After a month hidden in the back of a truck, which crossed into Turkey then drove through Eastern Europe and Germany, they arrived on the northern coast of France. They had paid £16,000 in cash, which Kafi had hidden at the family’s farmhouse, to an Iraqi agent.

‘How could we stay in a town run by the Islamic State when we have our little daughters to protect? We were frightened the fighters would want them too.

The jihadis took over Makhmur in 20 minutes, killed the men, and then began knocking on doors looking for girls to steal.’

Caliphate from Thomas Kratman is now a free book from the Baen Free Library. http://www.baen.com/library/books.asp
Caliphate is a pretty good military science fiction thriller. It details a future in which the middle east and most of Europe have fallen under the control of the Caliphate and the United States has become a fascist dictatorship. It’s a good story and contains a lot of information that we know about but the general public is mostly ignorant. Thomas Kratman himself used to post occasionally at the swamp before its downfall.

Here is the blurb from Baens site.

Caliphate
by Tom Kratman
Publisher: Baen Books

“Caliphate is Mark Steyn’s America Alone with body count.”—John Ringo

“Slavery is a part of Islam . . . Slavery is part of jihad, and jihad will remain as long there is Islam.” —Sheikh Saleh Al-Fawzan, author of the religious textbook At-Tawhid (“Monotheism”) and senior Saudi cleric.

Demography is destiny. In the 22nd century European deathbed demographics have turned the continent over to the more fertile Moslems. Atheism in Europe has been exterminated. Homosexuals are hanged, stoned or crucified. Such Christians as remain are relegated to dhimmitude, a form of second class citizenship. They are denied arms, denied civil rights, denied a voice, and specially taxed via the Koranic yizya. Their sons are taken as conscripted soldiers while their daughters are subject to the depredations of the continent’s new masters.

In that world, Petra, a German girl sold into prostitution as a slave at the age of nine to pay her family’s yizya, dreams of escape. Unlike most girls of the day, Petra can read. And in her only real possession, her grandmother’s diary, a diary detailing the fall of European civilization, Petra has learned of a magic place across the sea: America.

But it will take more than magic to free Petra and Europe from their bonds; it will take guns, superior technology, and a reborn spirit of freedom.
About the author

In 1974, at age seventeen, Tom Kratman became a political refugee and defector from the PRM (People’s Republic of Massachusetts) by virtue of joining the Regular Army. He stayed a Regular Army infantryman most of his adult life, returning to Massachusetts as an unofficial dissident while attending Boston College after his first hitch. Back in the Army, he managed to do just about everything there was to do, at one time or another. After the Gulf War, and with the bottom dropping completely out of the anti-communism market, Tom decided to become a lawyer. Every now and again, when the frustrations of legal life and having to deal with other lawyers got to be too much, Tom would rejoin the Army (or a somewhat similar group, say) for fun and frolic in other climes. His family, muttering darkly, put up with this for years. He no longer practices law, instead writing full time for Baen. His novels for Baen include A State of Disobedience, A Desert Called Peace and its sequel Carnifex, as well as two collaborations with John Ringo, Watch on the Rhine and Yellow Eyes.
