Never forget 9/11

Friday, September 11, 2009

We have come to another anniversary of that infamous date, September 1, 2001. I will never forget where I was that day when I got the news. I had the day off and I was sleeping late when my phone rang. It was a friend telling me that I had better turn on the news. Something big has happened. I guess he thought that I might not believe it if he just told me what happened, so he decided to let me see for myself.

Well, to say I was shocked would be an understatement. I found myself riveted to my TV set for the rest of the day. The global war on terror had been brought home to our shores and thousands of innocent Americans of all races and creeds had been slaughtered by the dark and evil force of Islamic extremism. The world would never be the same again. Now of course, Barack Obama won't even use the words "war on terror" anymore in his zeal to appease everything Muslim. But that is today's sad reality. Back then when it happened we actually had a President of the United States who vowed to take the war to the terrorists and to defeat them.

Under the stewardship of President George W. Bush we had many victories over Islamic terrorism. We routed their bases in Afghanistan and we dismembered the Taliban. We won many battles, but the war will go on for many years. Hopefully, in 2012 we can elect another president with the resolve to continue that brave fight against the terrorists who hate us and who wish to destroy us. But for the time being, with Obama in office, there will nothing but victories for extremism and terrorism. The one and only democracy in the Middle east, Israel, will find herself under ever increasing pressure due to Obama's inclination to favor the Islamic culture that he grew up in.

Oh what a tragedy it was to have this man elected to the high office of the presidency. We have a great and resilient nation. We survived the great depression (no thanks to FDR however.) We survived World War II. We survived our humiliation in Viet Nam when the liberals of that day forced us to withdraw from that war just when victory was in sight. Now let us all hope and pray that likewise we can survive four years of Barrack Obama.
