Serious Times

Thanks to the hard work of British intelligence, this day August 10, 2006 will not go down in history as one at least as tragic as September 11, 2001. Had the plot been successful, the death toll would have likely been far worse than that of 9/11. When I first heard the news from my wife upon waking up to get ready to go to work, my first reaction was relief. Soon after my first reaction, my second was rage; rage at the realization that neither our leaders nor the American public in general are taking the threat of Islamofascism seriously.

Just two days ago the Democrats booted out of their party the last sane Democrat, Joe Lieberman. Lieberman has been replaced by a complete dunce who believes that the troops should be brought home immediately from Iraq and hope that the threats to this country will go away (assuming he believes there are any such threats). I wonder how this wannabe senator would like to deal with this threat of Islamofascism? Oh, that’s right, if you are a Democrat you do not need solutions, just criticism for those who are actually trying to do something about the problem!

Then I thought about the man who came dangerously close to becoming president in 2000, Al Gore. Gore actually believes that global warming is a greater threat to America than al Qaeda! Can he really be serious? Is he really that blind to the hundreds of other threats we face before we even think about global warming? Clearly Gore is not alone in his thinking. This kind of lunacy should give Gore the advantage in recapturing his party’s nomination in 2008.

Then I thought about the Fat Ass from Flint, Michael Moore. The Fat Ass has said on multiple occasions that “there is no terrorist threat.” Really? Would you like to revise that statement fatty? Of course there is no terrorist threat. The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, those were isolated events. The fact that so many law abiding citizens own handguns, now that’s a threat!

Then I thought about the so-called peace process that the Bush administration is trying to put forth to stop the violence between Israel and Hezbollah. Someone please help me out with this. Let’s say you have two neighbors beating the crap out of each other. You then decide in order to stop the violence, you need to sit down and talk to some of your other neighbors (who are equally concerned) to draft a proposal to tell the neighbors who are fighting to “stop fighting.” Also consider that one of the two neighbors has caused you problems in the past (Hezbollah) while the other you generally refer to as a friend (Israel). Wouldn’t it make more sense to stay out of the way and allow your friendly neighbor to beat the crap out of your other neighbor which has been hostile to you in the past?

Then I thought about how so many of us are so concerned about the well being of the terrorists we have captured. In my recent post, some responded with moral concerns about the idea of torturing terrorists even if it depended on preventing a terrorist attack. Now we have a real-life attack which was stopped. Would I have any problem with the British intelligence officials torturing these thugs who attempted to kill a significant number of innocent men, women, and children? Hell no! Just give me five minutes with one of them with a pair of pliers and a blowtorch. Those who have not evolved beyond the notion of strapping bombs to children to please their imaginary friend do not deserve to be treated humanely. They should be exterminated like the vermin they are.

The threat of Islamofascism is one most of us have failed to take seriously. Islamofascism and our unwillingness to deal with it is the greatest threat to our security, our liberty, and life as we know it. These are serious times which require serious leaders with serious plans to defeat a serious enemy. I am seriously skeptical that such a leader exists and the future of our country is in serious jeopardy.

Very clear and to the point. World War III is a war of ideas and identity. We have to be sure and proud of who we are and what we stand for. Sadly, many Americans are not sure and for some reason ashamed of who we are. They need to read your blog, Stephen!
