FUNDAMENTALIST ISLAM HAS BEEN ATTACKING US SINCE 1979
Dr. Laurie Roth Ph.D.
We have been in a war with Fundamentalist Islam since 1979 when obvious attacks started and continued against US and her people. You may recall when our American Embassy in Tehran was seized by a group of Iranian students. Our President went to sleep. It was soon after that that kidnapping and murder of Americans became the new hobby. April 1983 you may remember when 63 were murdered at our US Embassy compound in Beirut. Then of course there was the attack on the US Marine Corps headquarters in Beirut. 241 servicemen were killed then. The murders of our troops and US civilians continued. Then of course in 2000 a US military Ship was attacked. 17 US Navy Sailors were killed. Planes started to come down….Lockerbie Scotland…cruise ships were attacked….Achille Lauro. Blood letting central continued against us until 2001 when part of us woke up and part of us stayed asleep.
9/11 was being planned for a very long time and just one of the many attacks I believe we gave energy and fuel to because of our endless snoozing regarding countless attacks since 1979! What did we tell these people again and again? Attack us and we pause, we talk a lot, we make lots of public statements, call our attorneys then go back to our parties! Fundamentalist Islam respects only strength. We let them know again and again……the path was clear for bigger and bigger attacks. We weren't the WW-II generation and wouldn't clean their clock!
After 9/11 our President did wake up and so did our country. Did we define the war correctly though?….…….no……we talked about taking on a tactic……terror, not Fundamentalist Islam. After all, we are so much further ahead with our moral and self esteem development than those rude WW-II folks! Now, we choose not to remember history and know enough not to define our enemy because it might hurt their feelings. If we have to we will kill them but never be rude!!! That is why as we take out terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan that sometimes we have to have anti war camera activists following our troops around snapping pictures to remind the very polite and naïve America at home how rude and murderous our troops really are! They just can't wait to take out the local civilians.
Then there are those really ugly troops like Lt. Colonel Alan B. West who made the hideous mistake of scaring a terrorist with a "fake out" threat to get information as to where snipers were planning to shoot his troops. How rude!!! Just think of what that poor terrorist went through……the fear. Granted, he did tell Alan what he needed to know and many lives were saved but Alan's career was ruined and he was forced into retirement instead of promoted to General as he should have been!!!
This war is as real as we have ever fought, whether you agree with our strategy in Iraq or not!!! The attacks have been non stop since 1979. Talking and looking the other way hasn't worked!!! They aggressively pursue because of their mangled belief about infidels, our freedom and Jihad's call!
Dr. Paul Williams reminded us last night on my radio show that we are in huge danger and that we have endless proof that Bin laden already has tactical nukes in 7 US cities with sleeper cells just awaiting his direction. They allegedly came up over our metallic and tough Mexican border! Can you imagine that? How would that be possible? We are SO TOUGH on border security!!!! We learned our lesson after our country was brutally attacked!!!…………….NOT! In addition, there is news of Hezbullah cells here and in Canada just waiting to attack if we go after Iran!
Folks if we want to really win this several decade war thrown at us by Fundamentalist Islam we have to do a few things!
Define the REAL enemy…..you know….those evil Scottish Highlanders!
Take this battle out of the legal and crime world. This is a war not
a law suit club! Lawyers and ACLU go home!
