Enough with the pseudonyms. Western civilization isnt at war with
terrorism any more than it is at war with grenades. Western
civilization is at war with militant Islam, which dominates Muslim
communities all over the world. Militant Islam isnt a tiny minority of
otherwise goodhearted Muslims. Its a dominant strain of evil that runs
rampant in a population of well over 1 billion.
Enough with the psychoanalysis. They dont hate us because of
Israel. They dont hate us because of Kashmir. They dont hate us because
we have troops in Saudi Arabia or because we deposed Saddam Hussein.
They dont hate us because of Britney Spears. They hate us because we
are infidels, and because we dont plan on surrendering or providing
them material aid in their war of aggressive expansion.
Enough with the niceties. We dont lose our souls when we treat
our enemies as enemies. We dont undermine our principles when we post
more police officers in vulnerable areas, or when we send Marines to
kill bad guys, or when we torture terrorists for information. And we
dont redeem ourselves when we close Guantanamo Bay or try terrorists in
civilian courts or censor anti-Islam comics. When it comes to war,
extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice, and moderation in the
pursuit of justice is no virtue.
Enough with the words. Talking with Iran without wielding the
threat of force, either economic or military, wont help. Appealing to
the United Nations, run by thugs and dictators ranging from Putin to
Chavez to Ahmadinejad, is an exercise in pathetic futility. Evil
countries dont suddenly decide to abandon their evil goals -- they are
forced to do so by pressure and circumstance.
Enough with the faux allies. We dont gain anything by
pretending that Saudi Arabia and Pakistan are true allies. They arent.
At best, they are playing both sides of the table. We ought to be
drilling now in order to break OPEC. Building windmills isnt going to
cut it. We should also be backing India to the hilt in its current
conflict with Pakistan -- unless Pakistan can destroy its terrorist
element, India should be given full leeway to do what it needs to do.
Russia and China, meanwhile, are facilitating anti-Western terrorism.
Treating them as friends in this global war is simply begging for a
backstabbing.
Enough with the myths. Not everyone on earth is crying out for
freedom. There are plenty of people who are happy in their misery,
believing that their suffering is part and parcel of a correct
religious system. Those people direct their anger outward, targeting
unbelievers. We cannot simply knock off dictators and expect
indoctrinated populations to rise to the liberal democratic challenge.
The election of Hamas in the Gaza Strip is more a rule than an
exception in the Islamic world.
Enough with the lies. Stop telling us that Islam is a religion
of peace. If it is, prove it through action. Stop telling us that
President-elect Barack Obama will fix our broken relationship with the
Muslim world. They hate Obama just as much as they hated President
George W. Bush, although they think Obama is more of a patsy than Bush
was. Stop telling us that we shouldnt worry about the Islamic
infiltration of our economy. If the Saudis own a large chunk of our
banking institutions and control the oil market, they can certainly
leverage their influence in dangerous ways.
Enough. After the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, the plane
downed in Pennsylvania, the endless suicide bombings, shootings and
rocket attacks in Israel, the Bali bombings, the synagogue bombing in
Tunisia, the LAX shootings, the Kenyan hotel bombing, the Casablanca
attacks, the Turkey synagogue attacks, the Madrid bombings, the London
bombings, and the repeated attacks in India culminating in the Mumbai
massacres -- among literally thousands of others -- its about time that
the West got the point: were in a war. Our enemies are determined. They
will not quit just because we offer them Big Macs, Christina Aguilera
CDs, or even the freedom to vote. They will not quit just because we
ensure that they have Korans in their Guantanamo cells, or because we
offer to ban The Satanic Verses (as India did). They will only quit
when they are dead. It is our job to make them so, and to eliminate
every obstacle to their destruction.
So enough. No more empty talk. No more idle promises. No more
happy ignorance, half measures, or appeasement- minded platitudes. The
time for hard-nosed, uncompromising action hasnt merely come -- its
been overdue by seven years. The voice of our brothers blood cries out
from the ground.

AMEN!!!!!

Brother Ben Shapiro....From your lips, to the new Administration's ears, brains and consciences. The question is, do we HAVE the brains, intelligence and resolve in our Leadership? OR is it going to be business as usual?

to help matters...at best it will be the same, worst case he will think we can make matters betters by giving in to them, little by little. I honestly don't see a way out...but not using middle east oil is a huge step for sure...I hope Obama does that at least with new energy strategy...use EVERYTHING!!!

One more thing:

I think one day, in the not too distant future, we are going to end up cleansing entire populations of Muslims (at the very least the extremists, but then how would you be able to separate them)...I am not saying that's what I want to happen, but I believe if we keep painting ourselves into a corner, the only other choice will be to have our society die off. Sad...very sad. It will be interesting to see what happens to Europe over the next 10-20 years.

WTF Pkato

Unfortunately? I thought we had some of the same wave lengths going. Did I do something to piss you off? I really didn't intend too! Sorry if I did.
I am not a ranting raving lunatic. Of course I was upset when I had the gang of 4 jumping all over my ass. They were like attack dogs, but that is behind us now. ebear and I have come to an understanding. syt-asyn syn is the only rabid one left and he has mellowed a whole bunch, especially now that he is home and off line...LOL

If you want to read a fascinating expose, by a person who "knows"....I commend to you:
www.reformation.org/energy-non-crisis.html

Reverend Bill Lindsay tells the story, in 20 chapters.

Chapter 1 begins with these words: "There is no true energy crisis. There never has been an energy crisis...except as it has been produced by the Federal government for the purpose of controlling the American people."

Disturbing...

That was some of the most disturbing reading that I have done in quite some time. And it doesn't surprise me one little bit. That was under Carter; another fine socialist. Totally unremarkable as a president, but great at bringing the country to it's knees, financially. If you will remember, we had oil shortages, long lines at the gas pumps, gas rationing, 21% interest on loans and you couldn't buy a freakin' job. It was right after that, that Ronald Reagan took over and dropped the taxes to the corporations (including the oil companies) and to the small business owners and to the middle class and the economy started moving again. That was the prosperity that Bill Clinton inhereted and took credit for. Reagan turned this country around and made it OK to be a businessman. Not to mention, there was not sin in turning a profit. And Reagan liked him some guns! There were no regulations like the ones that we suffered through with Clinton. If you wanted an assault rifle, if you could afford one, you could have it. Uncle Sam kept his nose outta your business. As it should be.

the facts.

I admired Ronnie Reagan for many reasons, but fiscal sanity was not one of them. Ronnie entered office having inherited a national debt of $995 Billion. He left office with a national debt of $3 Trillion, which GHW Bush turned into $4 Trillion. Are you suggesting that Clinton was taking "credit" for THAT KIND of "prosperity"?
Regardless of what we might think of Clinton otherwise, HE gave "Dubya" a budget SURPLUS of about $235 Billion. We all know what happened after that. Does $10 Trillion in debt float your boat?

You are correct sir

He did go on a major spending spree to break the Russians in the cold war and it did cost the taxpayers a ton of cash, but it did ultimately get the country's economy booming again. I lived in a military town (Huntsville, AL) and everything was defense contracts and support for the military. Prosperity abounded there. Reagan implemented the plans that gave Clinton the base of his New Deal II. The only way that Clinton was able to balance the budget was to cut the military in half and put us at risk for attack, then he buddied up to BinLaden to keep it from happening. If Russia had been in a position, they could have come along and smoked us and we could not have done a thing about it. I love the military and I think that it is our responsibility to provide them with the best and most that money can buy. Clinton just about kneecapped the military with budget cuts, base closings and the like. That ain't security to me.

Go ahead punk, Make My Day!
