Obama snubs 911 victims

Updated on September 11, 2010


Nine years ago Islamic Terrorist struck this country in a well planned and executed attack. The most prolific symbol of their triumph was of course the toppling of the Twin Towers. I vividly remember watching in disbelief as the first of the two planes flew into the World Trade Center. This couldn’t be happening, I thought to myself. Then as the second plane flew into tower number two it became vividly clear in my mind. This horrendous act was the result of America’s inaction following decades of provocation from which we simply turned the other cheek; unwilling to engage the enemy.

This pattern of Passim began over 37 years in 1973 when the Senate voted to suspend funding for American military operations in Vietnam. The next year, Congress voted to cut off aid to the embattled government in Saigon; thus, as a result of the Jane Fonda, Walter Cronkite and other Liberal Democrats leading the internal assault, America lost its’ first war. Not in the rice paddies of Viet Nam, but in Washington, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and other cities throughout the fruited plain was this war lost! We as a nation had lost the will for sustained combat and a national naiveté evolved through which future events and enemies would be assessed!

Fast forward to November 4, 1979, Iranian militants stormed the United States Embassy in Tehran and took seventy Americans captive holding them for 444 days. A decision was made to rescue the hostages but due to the deteriorated state of our military which was encouraged and allowed under Liberal Democrat President Jimmy Carter, we were unable to execute the mission. We as a nation were losing the ability to defend ourselves!

Next, Oct. 23, 1983, a truck loaded with explosives crashed into the 24th Marine Amphibious Unit Headquarters compound in Beirut Lebanon, killing 241 Marines. As a result of this attack, pressure from home forced the Marines to leave Beirut within a year. We as a nation had lost our sense of outrage at the death of young American soldiers at the hands of terrorist thugs!

But there was a brief bright spot in America’s willingness to fight; under President Ronald Regan as a result of the above Marine Barrack tragedy as well as a terrorist bombing of a German Discotheque frequented by American soldiers, the bombing of Moammoar Khadafi’s Libyan compound was ordered in 1986 during which his 3 year old daughter was killed. Lesson for the Terrorist; Republican Presidents are not like Democrats, they fight back so the need to control our government through other branches was realized!  

February 26, 1993, a massive bomb exploded in the parking garage of the north tower of the World Trade Center building in New York City, killing six people and leaving a crater six stories deep in the building's basement floors. The mastermind of the bombing, Ramzi Yousef boasted that he had hoped to kill 250,000 people. America was just beginning it’s “you had better stop because we really-really mean it” diplomacy under Bill Clinton!

Oct. 3, 1993, U.S. Rangers assisting a Delta Force commando squadron descend on a gathering of clan leaders in the heart of Mogadishu, Somalia. This ragtag clan, led by warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid, had challenged the United States of America. End result America soldiers bodies were burned and mutilated. Terrorist realized if they made it unpleasant enough we would cut and run and we did!

October 12, 2000, a small boat exploded alongside the USS Cole killing 17 sailors, wounding 39 others, and leaving extensive damages. The USS Cole was refueling in the port city of Aden, Yemen. Two suicide bombers had crashed the small boat into the USS Cole, detonating a bomb. Third Islamic sponsored terrorist event against the U.S. under Clinton resulted in no retaliation whatsoever; the U. S. was indeed a paper tiger!  

September 11, 2001, an Al Quaida orchestrated plot blows up the Twin Towers killing 2,976 Americans. President Bush with the support of both Republicans and Democrats (at least for the five minuets following the attack) launches the War on Terror. Now, 9 years later to the day our President can’t bring himself to visit the most significant site of the culmination of his party’s Passivism for the past 30 plus years. I for one am glad he is not there for if he were the hallowed ground upon which he walked would be desecrated and his putrid words would haunt the spirits of all those dead Americans who lost their lives on that horrendous day!   

But we all know why he is ducking this site today and sending his Vice Presidential Buffon instead. The proposed 'Cordoba House' overlooking the World Trade Center site is a test of the timidity, passivity and historic ignorance of American elites! 'Cordoba House' is a deliberately insulting term; it refers to Cordoba, Spain-the capital of Muslim conquerors who symbolized their victory over the Christian Spaniards by transforming a church there into the world's third-largest mosque complex; every Islamist in the world recognizes Cordoba as a symbol of Islamic conquest, even our President.

      Thanks Jason

      It's young people such as yourself that restore my faith in this great country. Hope to see more of you around here in the future.

      “Partisan,” I like your hub. You made great use of historic events demonstrating the lack of courage exhibited by soft democratic leaders. However, I believe you didn’t go far enough back, or in to detail of how prevalent this madness has become. Thank God we have not replayed the Tehran embassy incident in another country with our current President.

      What is more dangerous is our leaders backsliding and determination to humiliate our symbolic ally Israel. America is not going to need to worry about foreign invaders tearing us apart; America is going to experience divine retribution from walking away from Israel. Is America still a country built on a majority belief in Christianity? You wouldn’t think so by the limited raising of voices over how we ignore our friend and partner.

      Our country just isn’t respectful or grateful anymore. There are the minority exceptions, but our younger generations are far and few between understanding our founding concepts and perpetuating the sovereign wisdom of those policies. We are a new, devoted class of American’s who want to see our countries values live on, and we are spreading that message free of charge, no government ear marks needed. Keep up the good fight.

      These actions have been there from day one for those of us that were willing to examine them to do so. This so called president clearly demonstrates a disdain for patriotic Americans and Christians as he goes about his daily activities!

      As you well know, history has shown those of us that are willing to examine it, appeasement leads to more violence; these barbarians understand one thing and one thing only; STRENGTH THROUGH AMERICASN EXCEPTIONALISM. Our response should have been you kill three of our guys, burn their bodies and hang them from a bridge; we will turn Mogadishu into a giant glass factory with one great explosion. Had we done so; 911 would not have occurred and we wouldn’t be dealing with these Savages today!

      The new Khrushchev; you remember him banging his shoe on the table and screaming we will bury you without firing a shot. Well the new Khrushchev is Barrack Hussein Obama; we Muslims will bury you without firing as shot!

      You just summed up the 2008 presidential anyone with even a molecule of intelligence wouldn’t have voted for this Mystery Man of whom we didn’t know anything about and still today except through an examination his policies would we still not know anything about. The MSM pulled the biggest cover up in the history of the nation on us and because of this cover up, enough people that would not have voted for him otherwise did co; this vote coupled with your assessment of at least 40% of this country; those without even a molecule of intelligence was enough to put him over the top!

      Frankly, I am glad he stayed the hell away from ground zero, he is not fit to walk such hallowed ground with the attitudes he has about American citizens and the love he has for muslims above anything good EVER to be said about America. What really bother me is that he will still be the prez on the tenth anniversary, and I can only imagine what insulting and horrible things he will say about this nation on THAT sad anniversary!

      The actions of this president speak more clearly than any words he can utter. His disdain for patriotic Americans and Christians tell us more than he would like us to know. We just have to pay attention.

      Politicians and the press like to say Americans have short memories. You've shown here, with this history, that we don't. We're watching and listening and adding up the attacks against us. We've been watching our government appease the muslim world here and abroad. We're determined to have a new government within a few years, a pro-American government.

      "We will never be at war with Muslim." With Obama saying this, it makes me wonder.

      I cannot believe that anyone with even a molecule of intelligence doesn't get the fact that this Imam and this project are meant to be provocative. This is not a man of peace, this is a man on a mission. The mission is to plant the symbol of Muslim triumph as close to Ground Zero as possible. With the help of idiots he will probably succeed, unless he can't find anyone to build it. Great hub. Voted up!
