It has been 21 years since the 9/11/2001 cowardly sneak attack on America by terrorists -- an event that killed thousands and forever changed the lives of thousands of more individuals.
As we solemnly remember those 2,977 innocent Americans and others who lost their lives simply because they went to work that fateful day or boarded a plane destined to enter history, let us reflect on how the world has changed.
George W. Bush responded to the attack with overwhelming force, not against Afghanistan, the Taliban, and Pakistan who harbored Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda leaders, but against Saddam Hussein and Iraq—operating under the specious theory we needed to overthrow a Middle East dictatorship and democratize a country with a history of totalitarianism. The thinking was that we could use this success to demonstrate to others in the region that they should follow U.S. dictates or suffer a similar fate. A failed attempt at nation-building that drained our treasury and mired us in other regional conflicts.
Followed by the idiotic attempt to rebuild Afghanistan where the concept of loyalty to the state was unknown for a thousand years.
Former President Obama and the top people in his administration who were mostly anti-America, anti-white, anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and pro-Islam, are still deeply embedded in the leadership and bureaucracy of our nation.
All of the military men, continue their pompously strutting but are generally satisfied with their participation in a twenty-year debacle that ended up with America's first unconditional surrender of a country -- resulting in a Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, and Americans leaving Americans behind enemy lines as they withdraw in disgrace.
As for al Qaeda, the terrorist group led by Osama bin Laden, and the Taliban who provided the resources, unfortunately, a mentally-incapacitated President Biden and the anti-America Obamacons who pull his strings, have re-armed and empowered our enemy.
Let us remember that the Democrats allowed the massive immigration of Islamic individuals into our nation, including those Muslims that serve openly in Congress. Like the despicable un-Americans like corrupt Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), both anti-white, anti-Semitic, and anti-Israel. Do not forget Keith X, Keith Ellison (D-MN), whose association with Louis Farrakhan and the militant black Nation of Islam is rarely mentioned.
Perhaps the real lesson to be learned today is that we must defend the United States from its enemies, both foreign and domestic, hitting them with overwhelming force without regard for collateral damage, and leaving with the promise of returning if necessary--not rebuilding that which we destroyed.
Recognize that it is futile to attempt to take a confederation of regional authoritarian tribal powers and transform them into a somewhat democratic national state that would be respected and protected by their own army and national police force. You cannot take a medieval region into modernity if they lack a sense of nationalism, critical civic institutions, deep educational resources, and the necessary industrialization to create a self-sustaining economy. You cannot impose any government or law which does not comport with Islam, the Quran, and the various writings of The Prophet.
As we remember the collapsing Twin Towers with people jumping to their deaths rather than being burned alive, those at the Pentagon, and Danny Lewin and the other brave passengers who crashed their aircraft into a Pennsylvania field rather than the White House, perhaps we should re-dedicate ourselves to protecting and defending our Constitution and restoring faith in our civic institutions by dealing with today's political corruption and the inroads of communism.
Let us honor the sacrifices of those who died and the many still suffering by restoring American exceptionalism and our national honor.
Let us not forget, that the tragedy and terrorism of 9/11 are not over but have been empowered by those who rather protect their self-interests rather than our exceptional nation. Our enemies are still here in America and growing stronger each day.
Once again, we are reminded that there are hundreds of millions of individuals whose religion commands them to enslave or kill anyone, not of their intolerant religion…
Bottom line …
Let us remember that it was Democrats that birthed Islamo-Fascism in Iran (Carter), allowed North Korea to go nuclear, and China to improve their missile guidance technology (Clinton), stabilized the Iranian economy and the production of ballistic missiles capable of reaching the U.S., and set Iran on a course to develop nuclear weapons (Obama). At the same time, Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder were approving the sale of uranium to Russia.
Unless Islam is reformed, it represents a clear and present danger to America and the non-Muslim world. Do not let the far-left Democrat liberals in our government convince you otherwise. Unless we circumvent political corruption, our country will fall from within and be conquered by dollars, not bullets.
We need to elect leaders and keep our eyes open and focused on those who pretend they are friends of the United States, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Turkey all come immediately to mind. There are no moderate Muslims – and if there are, they are ineffective in controlling the crazies among them.
We need to understand that our Constitution is not a suicide pact – and that we can and must take decisive action against religious threats as if they were any other enemy initiative.
“Vigilance and Peace Through Strength” are concepts that are not well understood by the Democrat party and its far-left liberal Marxist infiltrators.
Considering our surrender in Afghanistan, with thousands of Americans and allies left behind Taliban lines to be hunted, tortured, raped, mutilated, and murdered -- our enemy is back stronger than before and armed with the most advanced U.S. military gear.
We still have done nothing to Pakistan -- who knowingly hid Osama bin Ladin and other enemies of the United States.
We continued to be screwed by our leaders and their woke politically correct nonsense that provides aid and comfort to our enemies.
Be well, be safe, and take care of yourself and your family first.
