Have We Forgotten?
Following the immediate aftermath of Sept. 11 2001 our country was united. Politics became trivial and there were no hyphenated Americans, just Americans. As the haunting images poured into our televisions, men and women cried! 8 short years later our nation is more divided than at any time since the 60's. As in the 1860's march to our civil war and the 1960's march to civil rights we are polarized and paralyzed by divisiveness.
Meanwhile the enemies of liberty and freedom continue attacking.
Writing in the New York Post,
Ralph Peters asks a stinging question and probes why.

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. READ the REST:
Regardless of ones political affiliations some facts must be faced and embraced to find our best path forward lest we fall upon history's scrap heap. Regardless of what was said in Cairo, Islamofascists are at war with U.S. This war against 'infidels' has been ongoing since the 6th century and words won't stop it.
Lt. Col. Allen West (US Army,Ret)
makes the argument and sounds the call.
Dr. Walid Phares makes the case in
'The War of Ideas':Jihadism -vs- Democracy
Look around the globe and see Islamic infiltration of the democratic countries.Then ask yourself who is the enemy to liberty... hurry as I smell the beginning of a lost cause in Afghanistan with the new NATO Rules of Engagement.
Can you say Nam?
