Lessons from the Boston Massacre

Tags: , , , , , ,


 

Popular wisdom states that “every dark cloud has a silver lining.”  It also warns that “those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.”

 

Now that the perpetrators of the Boston Marathon bombing have been tracked down by the capable efforts of the FBI, local police forces, and a vigilant citizenry, the residents of Boston and its surrounding area can breathe a sigh of relief.  Once again, in a city to which some refer as the “cradle of liberty,” American national security has been restored as it has “met the enemy and they are ours.”

 

Yet, as we bask in the warm sunshine of justice served and a return to business as usual, we must come to terms with the fact that our current enemy is unlike those whom we have met and defeated in the past.  Radial Islam, unlike Nazi Germany or Japan, knows no borders or nationalities.  It is populated by zealots who will continue to foment terror and perpetrate jihad until they subjugate the entire world or are exterminated from it.

 

In the years following 9/11, Americans have been lulled into a false sense of security by our “war on terror.”  Yet, what has this “war” really accomplished?  Iraq continues to struggle with its fledgling democracy.  The Taliban are regaining strength and will likely reascend to power when American forces leave Afghanistan.  And, most significantly, in the last four years jihadists have carried their fight to American soil – included among these the underwear bomber, the Times Square bomber, the Fort Hood shooter, and most recently, the Boston Marathon bombers.  Our enemies have and continue to use the freedom and openness of American society against us – embedding themselves within our culture and borders with the aim of plotting and carrying out acts of terror against American people and property.

 

This should be a wake-up call to our present Administration and all of those elected to public office at the local, state, and federal levels.  Pledging to uphold the Constitution and ensure the safety and security of our citizens, elected officials must reaffirm these commitments now.

 

Our federal government must identify our friends and enemies and treat them as such.  We should not be financing and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, the force behind the Arab Spring in Egypt and other areas of the Middle East.  On the home front, we should secure our borders from those who would harm us using legal and illegal means to enter our country, among them students entering with visas, guest workers, and all other foreign visitors.

 

Ronald Reagan stated, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.  We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream.  It must be fought for, protected and handed to them to do the same or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States when men were free.”  To maintain our way of life, we must heed our former President’s sage advice and act now to defeat radical Islam and the other forces of evil, both internally and externally, who would rob us of our freedom and destroy the promise of America.

 

 

A Western World Warning

Tags: , , , , , , , ,


The Afghan War may be the tip of the iceberg in the radical Islamic plan to conquer the world.  In the past year, we have witnessed not the emergence of homegrown terrorism on our soil, but something far more insidious and bone chilling: we have seen an increase in terrorism and attempted terrorism within our borders.  US Army Major Nidal Hasan gunned down 13 military personnel at Fort Hood. More recently, Faisal Shahzad was arrested as the would-be Times Square Bomber; his crime was to rig a car with explosives and abandon it in the heart of midtown Manhattan where, thankfully, it was spotted before it could detonate and obliterate God knows how many lives.  Both of these terrorists were American citizens. Yet, they chose to bring death and destruction to us because they are devotees of those who have perverted the Muslim faith into a force for violence.


Adding to our concerns is the news that seventeen Afghan troops training as Special Forces in Texas have gone AWOL.  If our government has found them or has a clue as to their whereabouts, it’s keeping the answers under its hat.  One of the AWOL crew is Anwar Abdulla Nasser Aulaqi.  Born on April 22, 1971 in Las Cruces, New Mexico, he was residing in Yemen as a cleric and had ties with Major Nidal Hasan, the murderer of thirteen.


Instead of being tried as the war criminal that he is, Khalid Sheihk Mohammed, the self-professed architect of 9/11 will be judged in a civilian court.  This mockery of justice for one who robbed 3,000 innocent souls of their lives comes courtesy of the politically correct environment rampant in our nation.  God forbid we should offend the terrorists!


All of these facts should be a growing concern to Janet Napolitano, the Secretary of Homeland Security.  She has been stymied by our present administration, which shrinks from pointing fingers at our enemies.  As President Obama began his term of office, he extended an olive branch to the Muslim world.  In the hope of initiating a foundation for peace, he announced that, in the past, America had demonstrated arrogance and misconduct in world affairs, particularly in trying to build a bridge between the East and the West.


This maneuver did not yield satisfying results (golly gee, I wonder why).  What it did, apparently, was embolden our enemies to step up the violence right here at home.  As evidenced by the greetings that English troops received when returning home for the war against Al Qaeda, Europe and the United Kingdom are experiencing the same treatment. Instead of being welcomed home, the British soldiers who had fought in Afghanistan were met with jeers and anti-war slogans.


Our fearless leader (Obama) added insult to injury by thumbing his nose at Israel in an attempt to appease the Arab world.  On a visit to the U.S., Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, received a cool reception.  That reception prompted Jose Maria Aznar, the former Prime Minister of Spain, to caution the Western world concerning the dangers of not supporting Israel.  His heartfelt speech can be found on Wikipedia.com, where a part of it reads, “If Israel goes, we all go.”


During World War II, Japanese citizens living on American soil were isolated in “camps,” right here in America, for reasons of security. To a lesser extent, Italian and German nationals faced the same treatment (and for those who don’t know their history, Japan, Italy, and Germany made up the Axis powers, those who were our enemies).  Should we use these same camp/isolation tactics to curtail the activities of terrorists living on our soil and enjoying all the amenities that come with that?  Or will we sit by and just wait for another 9/11 to occur?  And how do we identify radical Muslim groups in America?


These are serious questions; hell, these are serious times.  There is an old saying; “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”  So what do you think?
