World Trade Center Attacks

On this date in 2001, the Islamic terrorist group al Qadea launched a coordinated attack on the United States. Four airliners were hijacked, and three of them were flown into the World Trade Center towers, as well as the Pentagon. The fourth airliner, United 93, crashed in a field near Shanksville, PA, after the passengers tried to overtake the plane. By the end of the day, 2,977 people were murdered and more than 6,000 were injured.

When the dust settled, people started saying, “Never forget.” The sad truth is we have already forgotten. Politicians go to great lengths to claim America is not at war with Islam… even though much of Islam is at war with us. The media refuses to call terrorism what it is, and goes out of its way to report on the “real” terrorists: Christians, Jews, and evil right wing nutjobs. The politically-correct crowd wants any reference to Muslim terror labeled “hate speech,” as if ignoring the problem will make it go away.

And now, twelve years after the attacks that changed America forever, our “president” is planning a military strike to support the Syrian rebels. In this case, those rebels are affiliated with al Qaeda.

    Howdy Wyatt. I was living in and working in the mid-town section of Manhattan on that day. My then wife’s subway stop was One World Trade Center and she left, via subway, about 40 minutes before the first plane slammed into the WTC. It was seven hours – frantic hours – before I found out that she was OK. I also lost a “relative” (one of MY small band of brothers) and some very close friends. We were all scared: was the attack on the WTC the ONLY threat or mass murder attempt we’d see that day? And we were all filled with WHITE HOT ANGER.
    I tell you all of the above as a background to my suggesting you all read this:
    While I did disagree with George W. Bush over some policy matters, I NEVER doubted that he loved and would defend the United States of America. Its a shame that I don’t feel anything like that about the current tenant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C.

        When I think of muslims all logic goes out the window. We are in a “Forever War” and I don’t see it ending in our lifetimes. We are led by incompetent idiots with a cretinous moron sitting in the POTUS chair. I’m 63 so although I will affect me, it’s kids like the Earps that make me worry.

    Robert B. – I am, and from what I’ve seen, everyone on my block with a pole is flying the colors.

    Dr. Evil – Israel is the only place in the Middle East that should get our support. The rest of them can kill themselves.

    Metoo – It’s a great rendition.

    Jim – And Muslims are marching on Washington today to protest alleged “mistreatment” of Muslims since 9-11. Personally, I thought we showed great restraint.

    Real – I had my problems with him, too – spending, border insecurity, etc – but no one would have done a better job in the aftermath of 9-11.

    LDIV – Never forgive. Good point.
