    Betraying our dead

    Eight years ago today, our homeland was attacked by fanatical Muslims inspired by Saudi Arabian bigotry. Three thousand American citizens and residents died.

    We resolved that we, the People, would never forget. Then we forgot.

    We've learned nothing.

    Instead of cracking down on Islamist extremism, we've excused it.

    Instead of killing terrorists, we free them.

    Instead of relentlessly hunting Islamist madmen, we seek to appease them.

    Instead of acknowledging that radical Islam is the problem, we elected a president who blames America, whose idea of freedom is the right for women to suffer in silence behind a veil -- and who counts among his mentors and friends those who damn our country or believe that our own government staged the tragedy of September 11, 2001.

    Instead of insisting that freedom will not be infringed by terrorist threats, we censor works that might offend mass murderers. Radical Muslims around the world can indulge in viral lies about us, but we dare not even publish cartoons mocking them.

    Instead of protecting law-abiding Americans, we reject profiling to avoid offending terrorists. So we confiscate granny's shampoo at the airport because the half-empty container could hold 3.5 ounces of liquid.

    Instead of insisting that Islamist hatred and religious apartheid have no place in our country, we permit the Saudis to continue funding mosques and madrassahs where hating Jews and Christians is preached as essential to Islam.

    Instead of confronting Saudi hate-mongers, our president bows down to the Saudi king.

    Instead of recognizing the Saudi-sponsored Wahhabi cult as the core of the problem, our president blames Israel.

    Instead of asking why Middle Eastern civilization has failed so abjectly, our president suggests that we're the failures.

    Instead of taking every effective measure to cull information from terrorists, the current administration threatens CIA agents with prosecution for keeping us safe.

    Instead of proudly and promptly rebuilding on the site of the Twin Towers, we've committed ourselves to the hopeless, useless task of rebuilding Afghanistan. (Perhaps we should have built a mosque at Ground Zero -- the Saudis would've funded it.)

    Instead of taking a firm stand against Islamist fanaticism, we've made a cult of negotiations -- as our enemies pursue nuclear weapons; sponsor terrorism; torture, imprison, rape and murder their own citizens -- and laugh at us.

    Instead of insisting that Islam must become a religion of responsibility, our leaders in both parties continue to bleat that "Islam's a religion of peace," ignoring the curious absence of Baptist suicide bombers.

    Instead of requiring new immigrants to integrate into our society and conform to its public values, we encourage and subsidize anti-American, woman-hating, freedom-denying bigotry in the name of toleration.

    Instead of pursuing our enemies to the ends of the earth, we help them sue us.

    We've dishonored our dead and whitewashed our enemies. A distinctly unholy alliance between fanatical Islamists abroad and a politically correct "elite" in the US has reduced 9/11 to the status of a non-event, a day for politicians to preen about how little they've done.

    We've forgotten the shock and the patriotic fury Americans felt on that bright September morning eight years ago. We've forgotten our identification with fellow citizens leaping from doomed skyscrapers. We've forgotten the courage of airline passengers who would not surrender to terror.

    We've forgotten the men and women who burned to death or suffocated in the Pentagon. We've forgotten our promises, our vows, our commitments.

    We've forgotten what we owe our dead and what we owe our children. We've even forgotten who attacked us.

    We have betrayed the memory of our dead. In doing so, we betrayed ourselves and our country. Our troops continue to fight -- when they're allowed to do so -- but our politicians have surrendered.

    Are we willing to let the terrorists win?

    Ralph Peters' new thriller, "The War After Armageddon," goes on sale next Tuesday.
  2. Excellent and reminicent of De-Dolchstoßlegende.

    BTW - You forgot Sieg Heil to finish off your missive.
  3. Oh yeah, it was those pesky Eyerackis, wasn't it?
    (Walks off shaking head at fecking septic bilge)
  4. Or maybe you've just matured mate? Maybe you've just realised that the US, like every other, is a target like every other country for terrorists!
  5. On the bright side it did get rid of a load of fat useless firefighters, and a couple of floors of jewish bankers. Every cloud.............
  6. I say Jonno, a bit harsh, what?
  7. I`m not sure what the current US state of mind is, but if all that was written about the UK I`d tend to agree with most of the comments.
  8. Not really. A bit more time working the quads instead of hoovering up donuts might have helped that lot wheeze their way to the 73rd floor.

  10. Inspried!

    This mealy mouthed Kunt seems to have expediently forgotten that this attack was carried out mostly by Saudi Arabian citizens.

    After more than a trillion dollars and a few thousand extra dead we are still in pursuit of an effete son of Riyadh given to fainting before the lame attacks of Red Army conscripts.

    This has a great deal to do with ******* like Peters being no more able to candidly identify who the enemy is than find their own arse in a moment of panic. This really isn't hard: if a numpty runs towards waving a box cuter you shoot the fecker and check the passport. If you find yourself randomly blaming 1.4 Billion other people who happen to share the brand of faith for reasons other than commercial expediency I'd advise counseling.
  11. Suck my plums you dull er... er.. er.. plum.

    Haven't you got a burning cross to supervise. You know the drill. Burn the folk who you imagine might say,"Where am de white women?" Hilljack.
  12. Not quite sure where to start with this article, or indeed with some of the other articles Lt Col Peters US Army (Retired) has written. There are mistakes, half truths, the suggestion that torture is OK and a gentle hint of racism but there are also some valid points. Shame he forgot about the non-US casualties of that terrible day.

    If wikipedia is to be believed then he wrote this thoughtful insight in 1997:

    There will be no peace. At any given moment for the rest of our lifetimes, there will be multiple conflicts in mutating forms around the globe. Violent conflict will dominate the headlines, but cultural and economic struggles will be steadier and ultimately more decisive. The de facto role of the US armed forces will be to keep the world safe for our economy and open to our cultural assault. To those ends, we will do a fair amount of killing.

    Sound familiar anyone?

    Peters also has an interesting idea of re-drawing international borders so that it will reduce the risk of ethnic conflict such as turning Iraq into 3 states. Wonder if he would agree that handing over Spanish speaking States of the USA to Mexico in the interest of reducing potential ethnic flashpoints in the future is a good idea?. Nice idea that he proposes that all new US citizens integrate. Sounds like those anti-communists in the US in the 1950s who suggested that everybody prays in English as it was the only language god was listening to. He should hook up with that BNP chap...

    I don't suppose he voted for President Obama did he?
  13. There are no "Spanish speaking states" in the US. Yes, all new US citizens should integrate. Alot of people didn't vote for Obama. In three years even fewer people will vote for Obama, no doubt about that.
  14. What's all this shit about the twin towers being hit 8 years ago? Do you lot think i'm fucking stupid or something? I watched a film only the other day which shown the twin towers standing and it was in colour so must be true. Jeez, anyone would think I was born yesterday..........Muppets.
