If you feel like our current government is distracted and obsessed with their own political agenda while they are ignoring their duty to the people of this country you are probably in good company. The DC liberals have screwed up just about everything since taking power in 2008, it seems to be no surprise they have taken their eyes off the important challenges.
Their so called jobs stimulus bill was a disaster, racking up massive debts while the federal bureaucracy consumed all the money – resulting in no jobs for the country. The politicians in DC are currently obsessed with passing an Â overhaul of our world premiere health care system which nobody wants or supports. And for these fools in DC the natural gas CO2 is a greater threat than terrorism (or whatever dumb name these people prefer to label it).
Yesterday reality came crashing back on us, as al Qaeda once again sent some insane zealot to try and kill hundreds of innocent Americans:
An attempted terrorist attack on a Christmas Day flight began with a pop and a puff of smoke – sending passengers scrambling to subdue a Nigerian man who claimed to be acting on orders from al-Qaida to blow up the airliner, officials and travelers said.
The commotion began as Northwest Airlines Flight 253, carrying 278 passengers and 11 crew members from Amsterdam, prepared to land in Detroit just before noon Friday. Travelers said they smelled smoke, saw a glow, and heard what sounded like firecrackers. At least one person climbed over others and jumped on the man, who officials say was trying to ignite an explosive device.
“It sounded like a firecracker in a pillowcase,” said Peter Smith, a passenger from the Netherlands. “First there was a pop, and then (there) was smoke.”
Smith said one passenger, sitting opposite the man, climbed over passengers, went across the aisle and tried to restrain the man. The heroic passenger appeared to have been burned.
Afterward, the suspect was taken to a front-row seat with his pants cut off and his legs burned. Multiple law enforcement officials also said the man appeared badly burned on his legs, indicating the explosive was strapped there. The components were apparently mixed in-flight and included a powdery substance, multiple law enforcement and counterterrorism officials said.
It seems we may be facing another form of attack. Even without exploding, a high intensity fire on a commuter plane could cause massive casualties. We are going to see new and more intrusive searches – as we should. And we may be seeing the desperate gasp of a movement on the brink. Or we could see the revival of Islamo Facist terrorism. More here.
What bothers me is all of a sudden we are experiencing a new wave of terrorism coming at us since the elections of 2009, each getting way too close to success. Prior to this we had US Army Major Nidal Hasan, who was a clear and present danger to his fellow Americans. Yet the investigation into him by our government was suspiciously shutdown not long after the new administration started taking over the levers of government. An act very much in line with the spoken views of the new Attorney General. That resulted in the massacre of Americans at Ft Hood.
President Obama, Attorney General Holder and Speaker Pelosi have been attacking and threatening those who defend this country from terrorist attack since taking office. There actions have been at best a distraction, at worst a straight jacket that has caused us to lower our guard. These liberal politicians should be supporting our defenders with any and all means available to them, But instead of leading America they have been attempting to dismantle it so they can build a new one in the image they prefer. Their priorities are basically a mess.
Right now this country is not representing the combined will of its people, it is being run by a political machine who probably thinks we could lose a good chunk of our population and be doing mother nature a huge favor (lower the CO2 footprint, lower medical costs, etc). They do not believe terrorism is a threat, or at least as great a threat as the natural gas we all exhale and their own political opponents (they have harsher words for the GOP than al Qaeda).
I suspect al Qaeda sees the ineptitude and lack of will in these distracted fools in DC, and are going to try their best to destabilize them and get them to pull back in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Because right now we are on the brink of crushing the center of Islamo Fascism. Yes, some will scatter and remain to attempt to rebuild the cause. We have neo-Nazis today, we have rabid communists today, we still have isolated despots – all remnants of failed violent oppression. Islamo Fascism can easily go the same route. We can break their back. The question is do the people in DC have the backbone to do so.
It takes time and determination to win wars. Something we have an abundance of – if people jut think about it. We have the technological and training edge, we just need to isolate the enemy and take it out piece by piece. Its how you go about this isolation and destruction which dictates the pace of wars.
Many question why we have been at war with al Qaeda and Islamo Fascist groups such as the Taliban for almost a decade. The answer is obvious if anyone cares to think about it. Here is a picture of Berlin, Germany at the end of World War II (4 years for America, longer for the rest of the world):
This and many other cities were flattened on the road to victory (think Hiroshima and Nagasaki). This is a picture of Baghdad from January 2009:
It could easily be a picture of Kabul Afghanistan or any other region where we have recently freed the masses from bloody dictatorships. The reason for the long war is clear and obvious. We are taking our time so as to not cause unnecessary death and harm to the very people we want to liberate (as we had to do in World War II). We could shorten this modern war by going back to the brutality of the last century. But the price in human carnage for this lazy haste would be brutal.
If humanity is to become a peaceful race living in harmony, someone has to deal with the bloody psychopaths. And since the terrorist have been at war with use for two decades now – seeing as we represent a future were the individual reigns supreme – we have no choice. They are attacking us, we are their chosen target. We cannot go back to pretending these are not serious and dangerous acts of an evil people.
We need to dump the zealots in DC with their liberal agenda and get back to the center, get back to being Americans in a land that respect and thrives off diversity.Â We don’t need any variations on purity to causes other than the cause of America itself.
