Obama snubs 911 victims
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.
