Fourteen Years Earlier…

…terrorists flew four planes into three buildings and a field, killing almost 3,000 people.  A terrible tragedy that provided a wakeup call to the country that there is a movement in the world that will do everything in its power to destroy this country and it’s people.

Shortly after these attacks, President George Bush spoke to the American people and made these remarks during that speech:

“…Americans should not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign, unlike any other we have ever seen…

“…the only way to defeat terrorism as a threat to our way of life is to stop it, eliminate it, and destroy it where it grows.”

It seems that the leadership of this country has learned nothing in the intervening years, instead negotiating with a country that sponsors terrorism across the world and calls for the downfall of this country even during negotiations.  We have also seen an increase in terrorism around the world, and atrocities committed by an Islamic group which goes out of it’s way to publicize executions of Christians and non-believers on social media.  Our leaders response is to yawn and have nothing else to say while giving token support to our allies in the region.

Both Iran and ISIS state that they will not stop until the infidel nations are conquered and their people subjugated or executed.  They call for all Muslims to rise up worldwide to cause havoc and mayhem in the name of their prophet.  The Administration’s response is that we need to sit down, talk with them, and help them understand that their actions are not acceptable.


“Whether we like it or not, I believe that the Islamic terrorists are going to do their damnest to make this into a religious war from whatever it can be called now. They will use the classic good vs. evil argument, an us-vs.-them conflict in the name of a jihad (religious war, for those of you in Rio Linda). They will plot, plan, and execute attacks that will cause large numbers of casualties. And the elitist idiots among us will wring their hands crying, “We don’t understand! We were talking!” Understand this, you Brie-eaters – there are people in the world that want to kill you just for the reason that you exist!! And we still seem to pursue the idiotic mantra of appeasement to those who wish nothing more than to destroy our country and subjugate us to their religion.” – Tom Roland, 2006

Lest we forget –

“If you are unwilling to defend even your own lives, then you are like mice trying to ‘negotiate’ with owls.  You regard their ways as ‘wrong’, they regard you as dinner. – John Farnam

Our government is “negotiating” a deal with Iran to not develop nuclear weapons.  The agreement is fundamentally flawed, giving Iran everything possible to develop those weapons – unfreezing bank accounts (which will go toward funding terrorism and weapons development), a laughable inspection program, and no real consequences.  And somehow, this “deal” is being hailed as a landmark negotiation to keep nuclear weapons out of the hands of a state that sponsors terrorism across the planet.

I remember this history lesson from High School (back when schools actually taught something beside social justice and hand holding):

“The Imam and his soldiers would ride into the village and after all resistance had been eliminated, the villagers would be herded into the town square.  The surviving village elders would then be singled out and then told that they and their people would submit and convert to Islam.  They would approach the first elder, and if he refused, would then be beheaded.  And down the line they went until the surviving elder would command the villagers to convert.  It usually didn’t take that many elders getting their heads cut off before Islam added another village to their fold.

“The lesson was simple:  Infidels will convert to Islam or die. Islam requires the faithful to spread their faith, with violence if necessary, and to show no mercy.  And by the way, the Koran commands such actions.” – Tom Roland, 2014 

The Administration’s actions are a recipe for disaster, a step toward capitulation.  If our government so fears the Islamic terrorists, then…

“..we might as well just give up & pledge allegiance to Allah, put the women in burkas, scrap the Constitution & Bill of Rights, and put all of the “undesirables” according to Islamic law (such as Christians, Jews, Buddhists, atheists, homosexuals, Feminists, free-thinkers & other non-Islamics) to death.” – Tom Roland, 2006

And I wonder who is truly insane – our inept Administration or the terrorists that want to destroy the world in order to make it into their version of Heaven?  The Administration has forgotten:

“The American people are now at war, not with a nation, but with an ideology that hates this country and all of it’s citizens. These people live, think, sleep, and eat with the thought of killing us and destroying this country that we live in simply because they do not like us for the freedoms we enjoy (especially the one about freedom to worship). And their reward for doing so is their version of heaven. And knowing all of this, there are those who still believe that these fanatics can be negotiated with.” – Tom Roland, 2006

Our country has been effectively neutered with this Administration and its sycophants in the media, and that puts all of us, including our allies, in grave danger. 

“We must rid ourselves of the foolish notion that we’re being broadminded when we ignore vitriolic loathing of our culture and our lifestyle. Refusing to take action against evil for fear of being guilty of stereotyping has resulted in flag-draped coffins for thirteen of America’s finest. What occurred at Fort Hood is even more stunning because it exposes a weak-willed mentality that has become woven into the fabric of the mightiest military force in the history of the world.

“When we think of political correctness, we usually view it as confined to the Hollywood crowd and other assorted leftists. The fact that it has invaded the ranks of those who defend our freedom, here and around the world, is more than a bit alarming. We must not let the death of those soldiers count for nothing! If this unspeakable horror invokes a new paradigm in our approach to the enemies within, those who lost their lives will rest in peace, knowing that their sacrifice has taught us a lesson that will save countless other lives in the future. On the other hand, if we don’t view this as a wake-up call and take appropriate action, the date of our destruction can’t be far off.” – Bob Wier, American Thinker

Like Rome, Troy, and countless other civilizations and cities, we are being destroyed from within.  Our Administration is doing a bang up job not only domestically, but internationally as well.

While we remember the fallen on this day, we also need to pray for the country, our government, and our People, for we all need it.  Otherwise, we are doomed.
