In Memoriam For Those Lives Lost On 911… Fifteenth Year Anniversary....

Updated on September 13, 2016

PIn Memoriam For Those Lives Lost On 911… Fifteenth Year Anniversary….

Once again, I write without the fetters of Political Correctness on this issue and convey to you that as a grateful Immigrant and an ex-Army soldier, my biases will be conspicuous in my Prose to follow. To that end, it was some fifteen years ago when Muslim terrorists deliberately murdered over 3000 Americans, by piloting planes they had hijacked, into the Pentagon and New York’s Twin World Trade Centers. Some of these same terrorists attempted to add to the murderous count were thwarted when brave passengers fought the terrorists on this particular hijacked plane and in the former valiant efforts brought the plane down and died in a field in Pennsylvania - incidentally, putting to rest the loon “Truthers” who believed that 911 was an inside job.

The fight against the Jihadists is not over nor will it be for the foreseeable future because that strain of the Muslim teaching has become a religion… with Eschalogical perks and rewards, no matter that you or I do not believe so. But just how some of you think that my being a Traditional Christian - Traditional Christian meaning that if a given personal behavior was a Sinful trespass when Christ Jesus walked the earth… said behavior is still so now - is sheer lunacy, yet no amount of belittling or mammon or my trying to look cool in front of worldly peers can convince me otherwise that Christ Jesus is not Lord and that there are no rewards waiting for me in the next life for my Traditional Christian beliefs… the difference is that I do not think that murdering my fellow human beings will trigger those rewards. So the ‘snooty’ intellectuals and secularists who scratch their respective heads pondering why these Muslim Jihadists would forego the tried and true ‘carrot and stick’ reward/punishment approach must look at someone like me to understand why Muslim terrorism is here to stay.

As I look through my vistas, I see that sometime in the near future that Muslim Terrorists will get their hands on Nuclear weapons and will use them, Jesus forbids. I say this because North Korea, Pakistan, India, and probably Iran have Nuclear weapons as part of their respective arsenals and enough money… coupled with religious ideology will enable some of these dooms-day weapons to end up in the hands of Jihadists. I truly hope that we, as Americans, do not let the malignant cancer that is Political Correctness turn us into a suicidal nation like some would have our Constitution to be - these Jihadists want to kill us and we must respond in lethal kind.

I should not have to remind us that after 911 we have had Americans who have died in Boston, Texas, San Bernardino, and Florida and lest we forget the scores who have died across the pond in Europe. I have used this analogy before in my writings - but it is apt to use it once again here and to borrow from Sean Connery’s Irish character, in “The Untouchables” movie, who told the Eliot Ness (Kevin Costner) character that in the fight to wipe out the Mob that when Al Capone put one of Ness’ cop in the hospital… Eliot Ness should respond by putting one of the Mobster’s Hoodlums in the morgue. So too that if and when terrorists take out one of our cities via a Nuclear bomb, we should respond by taking out a country!

For those who have died fighting terrorism, especially those who are deemed First Responders, and those others who are going to die in this noble fight, my sincere condolences for the surviving loved-ones then and to come… and that they will take soothing comfort in the very words of Christ Jesus who said: no greater love than a friend (s) - First Responders and those who brought the plane down in Pennsylvania and the heroes and sheroes in the future - who lays down his life for his friends (John 15:13). As is my wont, I have included a song - The Last December - from my favorite musician, Prince, to help flesh out the themes of this blog.

      This was well written thank you. Please take a moment to read my latest hub on Islamism in relation to 9/11. And if you follow me I'll follow you. Take care now!

      Today I found this in my mail box:

      “Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked; For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out.” (Proverbs 24:19-20)

      Perhaps when evil days creep into our lives or our memory, we would do well to focus our “affection on things above, not on things on the earth” (Colossians 3:2).

      Thanks, for in essence fleshing out the blog by adding the needed info - but I must add that we must remember that terrorist blew up Wall Street under President Clinton's watch too....

      Thumbs up VP. I get uneasy every time I hear 3000 died. Like you said over 3000 died, like way over. 911 is the cause of the death of all those who died in the Iraq war (on both sides) and in Afghanistan, neither of which would have happened were it not for 911. ISIS killing of innocents would not be happening if it weren't for 911. People are still dying of cancer from being at 911 and doctors expert in this say more will be getting cancer from any exposure to 911 as time goes on.

      911 was and is the terrorists' wet dream, an action that will result in terror and death being propagated for as long as we can imagine right now. Sure, you may say if it wasn't 911 the terrorists would have struck some other way somehow, maybe worse, but 911 is what we have and to some extent we took the bait by the way we responded which has lead to way more death and destruction, murder of innocents and spread of terrorism throughout the world than just the destruction of the towers alone could ever have done. May God give strength to all those affected by 911.
