Random Thoughts on 9/11, Terrorists, Liberals, and the War on Terror.

I had a lot of time to think while I was driving back in town today. I thought I would scattershoot on some thoughts I had on 9/11, the war and Liberals.
I was in Shreveport, La. today on business. I had an hour or so to kill before my next appointment, so I went to the air museum at Barksdale A.F.B. to have a look around. Outside they have several historic planes roped in on the lawn. You can pretty much walk right up to them just shy of arms reach. I spent a little time looking at each of them, but none were as impressive as the SR-71 Blackbird.
I went inside the building where they have little vignettes, each a display of a different era. I walked through them and near the end they had an exhibit of 9/11. They had the podium our President stood at when he addressed the country from Barksdale. On the podium was a computer screen that played a loop of his short speech. I must have stood there and watched it 5 times. Watching it again and listening to the words he spoke gave me a feeling of pride I cannot fully describe. He spoke of the cowardly aggression and that we would find the people responsible and they would be punished. He is truly the right man for this job. I shudder to think what direction we would have gone if Al Gore were the President. Another computer screen showed a slide show of both horrific images of the attack and the aftermath and the heroic acts of people trying to help. As I stood and watched this I was reminded how I felt that day. The anger, the fear and the sorrow returned like it happened yesterday. Those images should be shown often. The people that are starting to go soft and are tiring of the war on terror should see them again. It would probably strengthen their resolve. I know it does mine.
There are a few things the libs are saying these days that are just idiotic. One is the talking points where they state that Iraq is the new training ground for the terrorists. They would have you believe they are learning about urban warfare there so they can pull it off some place else later. This is such B.S. If having your ass kicked all over the desert is training then let them train. They don't need to go to Iraq to learn how to make a improvised explosive device (IED). That is the only thing they have had any luck with.
London has had it's share of people protesting America and England this week during the summit, but where are the protesters now? Why aren't they protesting the terrorists? These people sicken me. How can you witness what these terrorists did in London and not see they are truly the face of evil? They murder innocent men, women, and children in the name of religion. We are not talking collateral damage. They are the intended targets. The evil doers need to be hunted down and killed because they can't be reasoned with and you can't negotiate a peace settlement with them. All you need to do is look at Spain. They were attacked and voted out the party supporting the war. After pulling out of Iraq and no longer supporting the WOT, they were attacked again. The Islamists hate us for who we are and the freedom we enjoy and as long as we are around they will try to kill us.
As far as the war on terror is going, I think it has been a major success so far. The fact that they haven't been able to strike us here shows that. If they had been able to attack us again here at home they would. I won't diminish the attack in London. It was horrific, but the fact that all these animals can do is set off IED's of less than 10 pounds each shows they are not that strong right now. If they could have set off a dirty bomb or worse, they would in a heartbeat.
In closing I would like to say that the road ahead is a never ending battle between good and evil and we must triumph. The Liberals need to understand that we didn't start it, but we damn well better finish it, so support the troops and support the President and shut the F&#@ up. The terrorist need to understand that a few bombs let off is only going to piss us off more and strengthen our resolve.

TheIndyChannel.com - News - Parade Float Depicting Bin Laden Sparks Debate

Hey, Kathy - you're an idiot!! Here's a question for you:

If this float is pure hate, then what would you call flying two planes into the WTC??
Don't be a moron.

As for Tarek - I really don't give a shee-it if you were offended by it. I am offended daily by your fellow peace loving Muslims refusing to call out the terrorists among you. I am offended by your fellow Muslims blowing up innocent people on their way to work. I am offended by your poor pitiful me attitude. If you don't like the float because it hurt your muslim sensibilities, that's just too damn bad. Maybe you can go talk to a shrink about your pathetic self-image.

Arabs fear backlash after London bombings

Get off the waambulance. You'll note they don't feel sorry for the innocent people who were murdered on their way to work. They feel sorry for themselves because now there will be an anti-Arab backlash.

The results mentioned in this article are mixed - some of the arabs condem the act, and the rest welcome it or say it was brought upon the British due to their involvement in Iraq and the WOT.

For those that say the west created Osama and the attacks - pray tell what the west did to islam in 1529 and 1683 when they laid siege to Vienna? What did the west do to islam in 711 when they invaded Spain?

I may not be very good at math, but I do believe that both of those events took place well before the United States gave its support to Israel, or England supported the United States in Iraq. Islam has agressively expanded since it's creation, regardless of how nice it's neighbors were. Yeah, if you were/are willing to live in dhimmitude, then you could manage to live under islamic law. But strangely that sounds a lot like slavery to me.

What did the United States do to islam in 1979 when the Iranians chanting "death to America" took captive American hostages.

What did the United States do to islam in 1983 when 17 were killed at the US embassy in Beirut?

What did the United States do to islam in 1983 when 241 Marines were killed in their barracks in Beirut?

What did the United States do to islam again in 1983 when 5 were killed at the US embassy in Kuwait?

What did the United States do to islam in 1984 when 18 were killed at a US airbase in Spain?

What did the United States do to islam in 1993 when two CIA staff were executed in front of the CIA headquarters in Langley?

What did the United States do to islam in 1995-96 when 24 were killed in Saudi Arabia?

What did the United States do to islam in 1998 when 224 were killed in the US embassies in Africa?

What did the United States do to islam in Yemen when the USS Cole was blown up in 2000? This attack even came after the United States spent billions upon billions of dollars ending the ethnic cleansing in Kosovo where MUSLIMS were being slaughtered by the Serbs.

I'll tell you what the United States did since about the 70s:

We spent billions upon billions upon billions of our dollars ANNUALLY to try and make the Middle East a better place for it's people to live.

We, and the other Western powers, built, maintained, and managed the Saudi oil machine bringing untold trillions of dollars into the Middle Eastern economy.

We stopped genocide against Muslims in Kosovo.

Yeah, looks to me like we earned the animosity of the Muslim world.

Far as I'm concerned, they can kiss my arse.

In London, uninjured singer Omarion seeks prayers

This is probably one of the stupidest, most selfish people on the planet. This 20-year-old jackass was in London on 7/7, and he wants his fans to pray for him. Was he injured? No. Was he inconvenienced in any way? No. Was he one of the bombers? No. Was he in the movie "You Got Served?" Yes.

What a self-serving prick.
Making no mention of the fatalities or casualties of the blasts, the singer's statement concluded, "He would like his fans to pray that he has a safe trip and a safe return home. He appreciates your support."
He was merely in London, and I guess people didn't know and/or didn't care. I still don't care.

From This Blog is Full of Crap:
And deep in the heart of every true Muslim, one that follows the word of Allah as spoken by Muhammed to the letter, they want us dead or gone.
It's the ones who don't follow the teachings strictly and have assimilated who show any sense of tolerance, understanding, or compromise. They are the ones who we should tolerate.
Because the hardcore ones want them dead too. Although if they side with them instead of us, we've got an even bigger problem.
Get that through your skull, people, or you may find your skull in a different zipcode from the rest of you one day. Maybe in that mythical Bridge to Paradise built from the skulls of slain infidels you hear about on Gaza and Saudi television every so often.
Tolerance is a good thing. Putting up with murderous insane shit is a whole other story.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: we are at war with the Islamists. Deny it all you want, tell me how wrong it is to say that, but the fact remains that they continue to take the fight to us. They believe that they have a moral imperative to kill the infidel. They are heartless murderers who kill non-combatants (including women and children) in their homes, and not only do they not care, they revel and rejoice in this murder and mayhem. I may be an infidel, but at least I'm not an animal.

U.S. Cities Go on Heightened Alert

Looks like it's "keep the carbine in the car" time, again.

I like this site. This link is to a great collection of quotes that will help you in determining where certain people stand. You might be surprised at some of them, and you'll be amused at a lot of them. Others are just good.
"This is an enemy [the Jihadi terrorists] that refuses to observe any conventions, treaties or rules of warfare. They lie, cheat and violate agreements. They slice off heads like raw meat. They murder women and children. They fly airplanes into buildings. But we're the bad guys." -- Oliver North
"When the federal assault-weapons ban expired last September, its fans claimed that gun crimes and police killings would surge. Sarah Brady, one of the nation's leading gun-control advocates, warned, 'Our streets are going to be filled with AK-47s and Uzis.' Well, over eight months have gone by, and the only casualty has been gun-controllers' credibility. Letting the law expire only showed its uselessness." -- John Lott, Jr.

AOL News - How Martha Stewart's Living

"Stewart calls her confinement at her 153-acre New York estate "hideous." "

Poor Martha. I'm sure that there are many of us who would like to be trapped on a 153 acre estate and we'd somehow manage to find a way to get by.

There are some awesome photos here. Lots of time spent sifting through some cool stuff.

U.S. resumes Afghan search after SEAL rescued - South and Central Asia - MSNBC.com

Anyone want to take a bet that the rescued SEAL didn't eat politically correct meals, prepared special for his dietary needs; wasn't given the opportunity to pray if he saw fit, according to his religion; and wasn't given 1 hour of exercise in a state of the art facility during his captivity?

Glad he's back among friends and prayers out for his comrades still behind enemy lines.

As an aside, was thinking this 4th of July morning that the war's been raging since 2001. How many Hollywood movies, tv shows, mini series etc have been made featuring the war? Doesn't it strike you as odd that the same institution that can't wait one year to give us a tv show on the Scott Peterson fiasco has gone 4 years with nary a peep about the ongoing WOT?


Robert Redord to the press:
"I'm not an investigative reporter, but I did sleep in a Holiday Inn last night."

'Greatest' show on (.com) Earth

"Coldplay's Chris Martin announced from the London stage, '[This is] the greatest thing that's ever been organized in the history of the world.'"

Boy, and these rocket scientists are the ones we're supposed to listen to? What a bunch of morons.


"Astonishingly, he claimed America did not need to give any more to beating poverty as individuals were so generous at charity. Mr Bush has refused to meet the goal of raising aid to 0.7 per cent of America's gross income"

Newsflash! How many BILLIONS of dollars has the United States poured into Africa? Right down the drain.

Astonishingly, you are too big of an idiot to realize that pouring money into a problem is not the answer. As I said earlier this weekend, until the people of Africa embrace democracy, capitalism, and lose the over-bearing corruption that runs rampant through most of their governments, it's not going to change a thing. Have you long haired maggot infested hippies ever given thought that by pouring money into corrupt governments is only making them more powerful?

Speaking of pouring money into a problem - how much of the Billions of dollars that were donated to the Tsunami relief earlier this year have made it to the people? Practically none. Why? Because the aid organizations and the governments in the area can't agree on how to spend the money. Gee, I wonder how many people have starved there? I'm sure it's George Bush's fault.

Happy Birthday America!

Read it.

Sky News : 'World Is Beginning To Demand More Action'

When will the hippies of the world learn that you don't fix something by throwing money at it?

To make a shooting analogy:

There are guys (and girls) that spend thousands upon thousands of dollars on their equipment. But they still suck. Because they don't take the time to change internally, to practice, to learn. That $2000 pistol will save them 5 seconds a stage in their mind, but in the end, they are the same shooter they were before they spent the money and their results haven't changed one bit.

Throwing money at "poverty" is giving us exactly the same result. How much have we spent on poverty in the United States since LBJ's War on Poverty? And golly, there are still poor people in America. Granted, they are the richest poor in the world, but there are still obviously "poor" people in the United States.

Now, until the countries of Africa come into the 21st century, adopt a free market economy and democracy, and lose the corrupt leaders that seem to always rise to the top, they are going to stay a large part of the 3rd world. No matter how much money Bono throws at it.
