Betraying our dead
Eight years ago today, our homeland was attacked by fanatical Muslims inspired by Saudi Arabian bigotry. Three thousand American citizens and residents died.
We resolved that we, the People, would never forget. Then we forgot.
We’ve learned nothing.
Instead of cracking down on Islamist extremism, we’ve excused it.
Instead of killing terrorists, we free them.
Instead of relentlessly hunting Islamist madmen, we seek to appease them.

Betraying our dead
Those few words above are the inspiration for this post. You see, I AM ANGRY!
Actually, I am far past the definition of angry. I am incensed! I am enraged! I am filled with a burning desire to see wrathful vengeance served upon those that brought this war to our shores. I want retribution against those that try to force us to submit to their way of believing. Those that have sworn to kill us if we don’t. We don’t try to force OUR way of life on them. I don’t, and that is a certainty.
I have said, many times, after the attacks of 9-11, I was totally in support of our going, in force, to Afghanistan. I was NOT in support of the move to Iraq. I felt then, and still do, Iraq has been a waste of time and took our focus off of the real target, radical Islam and it’s roots in Afghanistan.
The move to Iraq astounded me. Many DO believe that Iraq was the right decision, that’s their right. I don’t agree with them, in ANY way. I am still of the opinion that we have yet to address the REAL enemy of the United States, the true sponsor of 9-11. The House of Saud.
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Saudi Arabia acknowledged for the first time that 15 of the Sept. 11 suicide hijackers were Saudi citizens, but said Wednesday that the oil-rich kingdom bears no responsibility for their actions SOURCE
Of course the Saudis denied any and all knowledge of these attacks. That would be the proper way for the Saudis to proceed. Osama bin Laden, the chief suspect in the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks that killed more than 3,000 people, was Saudi born but stripped of his citizenship in 1994 according to the article.
The Saudis are a loose bunch, they tend to look the other way when money is involved, as long as they are the recipients OF that money. Osama bin Laden, and his family, have plenty of money.
The Saudis may not have been directly involved in the attacks of 9-11, but it is my opinion that they were, at the very least, a financial supporter and spent much behind the scene time and money as well. But that’s OK, right? George W. Bush welcomed them into HIS home and kissed the bastards. I guess we’re supposed to accept the Saudis as our friends too if the example set by Bush was any indicator.
Our troops have the will and the strength to go after, and KILL, all of those that threaten the United States. They have the will, but what they don’t have is the LEADERSHIP!
George W. Bush micromanaged Iraq, he refused to let the WARRIORS fight the war. Political Correctness was the order of the day. We were busy rebuilding Iraq long before the fighting and destruction were over. Our excursion into Iraq took troops and resources away from the fight in Afghanistan, and now we are having to fight even harder just to maintain a stalemate in that God forsaken place. We are, according to many great minds in the Intel community, in as much danger of being hit again as at any time since the attacks of 9-11.
Do you think the Obama administration will listen to those Intel guys? Probably no more than Bush did when some highly reputable CIA guys tried their very best to tell Bush that Iraq was a really bad move to make and that we needed to concentrate our efforts on Afghanistan.
When the Japanese attacked us on Dec. 7, 1941, this nation mobilized. We were ANGRY! We were spoiling for a fight, and in less than 4 years we were able to bring about total victory over Japan, Italy and Germany. In less than 4 years, we ENDED a WORLD WAR, ended it with a resounding VICTORY!
We have been engaged in Afghanistan since October 7, 2001 when Operation Enduring Freedom was launched by the United States in response to the attacks of 9-11. That’s almost 8 years folks. We WON a WORLD WAR in under 4 years but we’ve been fighting in Afghanistan, a nation the size of Texas, for almost 8 years? WHAT is wrong with that picture.
This continued fighting, against the supposed sponsors of the attacks of 9-11 is nothing more than a DISGRACE to the victims of 9-11. Our government, the past administration of George W. Bush, and the current administration of Barack Hussein Obama, have denigrated, and are denigrating those that died on Sept. 11, 2001. All the wreath laying and flowery speeches be damned. Action speaks louder than words. And after 8 years, with no clear cut victory, the actions of our troops, and exactly what they are allowed to do, or, perhaps I should say, not allowed to do, speaks volumes.
Our political leaders, NOT our military, our POLITICAL leaders have lost all will to fight and WIN. Winning is not a PC action, no one can WIN, we must ALL be equals in the opinion of our less than fearless leaders. PCness dictates that there can be NO winners, there can only be participants. We all got to play, and we all played well, so, GROUP HUG and lets all sing a few verses of Kumbaya. THAT is the LIBERAL mindset. THAT is why, under the likes of Obama, we will NEVER engage an enemy of this nation and walk away with a WIN again!
And whatever you do, don’t call it a War on Terror!
Oh NO, that’s just not politically correct! We might hurt the poor, misunderstood radical Islamic Terrorists feelings if we call going after them and their ilk a WAR.
It’s an Overseas Contingency Operation! Who in the hell thought that one up? They need to be smacked upside the head with a Louisville Slugger, several times.
We are led by the most gutless bunch of posers in American history. Our nation was viciously attacked. Our citizens, INNOCENT citizens, were murdered at the hands of these Islamic attackers, and our government continues to play PC games? Our government continues to sit back and let the bastards draw breath? Simply incredible.
I don’t care how many bleeding hearts, libbers and other assorted moonbats I piss off by saying so, Mecca needs to be a radioactive sheet of poor quality glass. Saudi Arabia and Tehran can go too, and while we’re at it, take Damascus and Medina out at the same time. Then the only real worries we have from Islam are the ones that have over-run Europe and are on the verge of turning ALL of Europe into an Islamic heaven.
And to the Europeans that are sitting back on their unarmed and pampered asses, just letting it happen, this time America isn’t going to come rushing in to save you.
And after this post I may have a few less U.S. Internet friends too.
There are some folks out there in the blog world that call themselves patriotic Conservatives. They tell everyone what they think about this and that, they blast Obama, rightfully so, but then 9-11 rolls around and they don’t have the class or the dignity to make a post honoring the victims of those horrendous attacks.
That is inexcusable in nearly ever case. It takes only a few minutes to make a 9-11 post. It takes asking a friend to cover your absence if you’re out of town, tied up with business, working 12-14 hours days as I know one of my great friends is doing. I made a post for him on his blog for 9-11.
But there are far too many apathetic Americans out there. And there are far too many apathetic bloggers that claim to be something that I feel they are not. If you look at my Best of the Web module, and my Fred’s Faves page, you will see both a bit thinner today. That’s because I have ceased linking the blogs I was showing that didn’t make a 9-11 post. Seems fair to me. You can’t be the best of the web and ignore 9-11, and you’re not one of my faves if you ignore 9-11.
Harsh? Maybe so, but to me, it is THAT important. Project 2,996 didn’t have anywhere near all the victims of 9-11 covered this time. 1,080 tributes were assigned, out of 2,996 available. Where were all of the so-called PATRIOTIC bloggers on this most solemn of days? Instead of honoring the victims of 9-11 they either didn’t post or continued with their screeds about how the folks at ACORN support pimps and whores. Great topics, no doubt, but ya know, at least one day of the year, let it go man, show some respect and rattle a few cages by showing some respect for the innocent victims of 9-11 and the attacks from The Religion of Peace.
We can’t allow this kind of apathy to devour America. We are in a fight for our lives. The very existence of the American way of life is at stake. We have the most liberal administration in American history sitting in the Oval Office and they are making every effort to give this nation away!
Read the full story that inspired me to write this post. Read the words of Ralph Peters, I think that you too will agree, we HAVE betrayed our dead. We have allowed their memory, and their deaths to be denigrated and dishonored.
We have not avenged their deaths. We have allowed the radical warriors of Islam to keep on doing what they do best, organize and strengthen, and plan their future terror attacks on our weakest targets. Attacks designed to kill and maim as many Americans as possible.
Our president, Barack Hussein Obama, apologizes to the world for America being whatever it is he feels we have become that is worth an apology from the leader of the free world.
Leader of the free world? Did I say that? Damn, I must be slipping. Obama isn’t a leader, he is an appeaser, a community organizer and a crook. His entire administration is filled with crooks, his very own Obama/Chicago mafia. Tax cheats, communists, Marxists, PETA moonbats, liars, thieves and all around despicable people.
And apathy is what allowed that to happen too! The lack of faith that nearly ALL Americans have where our government is concerned. Many have reached the point of not caring, they feel that no matter who is in charge, the outcome will be the same. And believe me when I say this, Bush put us in a tail spin, Obama is going to crash us into the ground, and then give what might be left to his Muslim brothers.
I am one totally pissed off Texan, I own guns and I vote. I AM, by definition, according to the director of the DHS, a Domestic Terrorist.
I, and others like me, scare the hell out of Obama and Company, and we also scare the hell out of the RINOs, the tree huggers, PETA and all of the other assorted moonbats that are steadily destroying America. We want our America back. We want our America safe, sound and STRONG. We want our freedoms left alone. We want the government to do what it’s intended to do. Our government does not need to be in the health care and car business, trying to dictate our every waking move, action and thought.
There is a storm on the horizon my friends, and it’s coming soon. 2010 is just the beginning. But before we get to 2012, I am afraid that we are about to see the most drastic governmental measures placed into play that the United States has ever suffered. The loons on the left are not going away quietly, and as long as Obama can issue executive orders, we are in an extremely dangerous position.
But there is, as always, a bright spot on the horizon. A FREE people will remain FREE, or DIE trying! If the U.S. military can’t totally and completely pacify Iraq and Afghanistan, how can they possibly force the will of Obama upon us?
