9/11 - Not a Tragedy

Much is being written today about the "tragedy" that occurred 6 years ago on 9/11. I can remember clearly the morning of that day while visiting my parents in Massachusetts. A friend had just rang the door bell and told us an airplane had accidentally hit the World Trade Center. We turned on the TV in time to see the second plane dive into the other tower. At that moment I knew this was no accident and hence not a tragedy, but an act of War.

Today some 40% of the population is in total denial about the threat of Islamo-fascism. And an equal number thinks that the attacks were an inside job. These people are so demented that they overlook basic science (how is steel made?, what is modulus?) and cling to hatred of President Bush over all reason.

But, like Hitler, the threats from Bin Laden and Ahmadinejad are real and to be taken seriously at our own peril. Some point to the fact that we have not been attacked since 9/11 as "proof" that this is not real. The facts are that Al Qaeda has not attacked us because they can't. Our offensive and defensive campaigns have neutralized much of their capability. However, if they see an opening, they will attack again.

And there-in lies the problem. The left is so intent on bringing down opposing views that they are willing to do whatever it takes to bring another attack on the US. The ad in the NY Times (General Betray US) is one of the most despicable, treasonous things I have seen in my lifetime.

During the McCarthy hearings, the Senator was asked "Do you no sense of decency?". This ended McCarthys credibility. Moveon.org and DailyKos have gone way beyond decency and literally make me ill.

The one fact that those who oppose this fight fail to realize is that we are dealing with evil. Evil cannot be ignored, only defeated.

Thank God someone else sees it. Sometimes I think the whole country has lost the ability to recognize a threat and rise to the occasion. Whatever Bush has done wrong, at least he has that much sense most days. I highly recommend "The Force of Reason" by Oriana Fallaci, the late Italian journalist.
