TERRORISTS AND TERRORISM IN THE UNITED STATES
March 1, 2016
Part 1: Terrorists infiltrate the United States at will.
In the 21st century, terrorists and terrorism visit the United States like never in the history of our country. Previous to 9/11, we enjoyed thousands of miles separating us from vagaries of the communist and Islamic worlds. While we fought wars in Korea and Vietnam, we never met an enemy that would “bring war” to our shores. That changed on September 9, 2011.
In this ongoing series with former U.S. Army officer, 1st Calvary, George Phelps, you may garner an up close and realistic view from a commander in the in the field.
Today, most Americans feel totally vulnerable to terrorist attacks. As realized at the Boston Marathon or San Bernardino, this Muslim ‘army’ of two or five or 19 can strike at any time. Congress and our last five presidents refuse(d) to secure our borders. Governors allow illegal aliens to gain driver’s licenses, as was the case with Mohammed Atta and his cronies as they flew planes into the World Trade Towers. Mayors and City Councils of 240 cities create sanctuary for illegal aliens, terrorists and visa-over-stayers.
Mr. Phelps, could you give us an idea as to why we face terror in our own country?
“Like so many Americans,” said Phelps. “I have tried to understand why we, the United States of America, became a target of attack on September 11, 2001. At first it escaped me. We have provided humanitarian and foreign aid to so many other countries in this world, that I just couldn't believe that anyone would perpetrate such a savage and large scale attack on us; especially an attack that was aimed at innocent men, women and children.
“I began to do some serious research on our attackers. I, also, did some research beyond, what I believed to be, my own knowledge of our national and foreign policies. I found that my knowledge of our national and foreign policies, and activities, both current and past, was good, maybe even very good. But, I found my knowledge of our attackers sorely lacking.
“My knowledge of the regions of the world where they "reside" was severely limited. I knew where their countries were located geographically, but my knowledge of the climate and topography of the region, their societies, their people, their needs, their religion, their governments, their customs and their feelings and perceptions of the rest of the world, and specifically the United States, were seriously limited.
“I'm not much different than most other average Americans, but I think it's imperative that we, all of us, try to become better informed, because these countries, these people, these terrorists are not going away. We may be able to mitigate terrorism, but we will still need to understand these people and their needs and make sure they don’t bring their terror to the United States. In Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," the ghost of Christmas Present threw back his robe, revealing to Scrooge, two children, a boy and a girl, saying, "the boy is ignorance and the girl is want, but, more than anything, beware the boy". I would say, "Beware them both, and give each the attention they need."
“Want, oppression, discrimination, need, lack of freedom and lack of education foster discontent and lead to violent rebellion. History is fraught with revolution, killing and warfare because of these conditions that human beings so inhumanely have perpetrated upon one another.
“The people of the Middle East and Central Asia have been, and are currently, exposed to, and living under, all of these conditions. The entire area is a pressure cooker, literally on the verge of exploding. How do we begin to understand Osama bin Laden, the former leader of the terrorist, militant and fundamentalist "branch" of the Islam religion. He came from a very wealthy, affluent, influential and powerful family. He never experienced want, oppression, discrimination, need or lack of freedom, unless, of course, it was self-imposed or self-inflicted. He was well educated.
“Was he a demagogue, intent on achieving personal power? Or was he a religious fanatic who chose to interpret the Quran in such a way that he was intent on perpetrating a Holy War (JIHAD) to establish Islam as the world's dominant, or only, religion?
“No matter what his motivations and intentions, bin Laden was a mass murderer of the highest degree, a menace to the world, and we killed him. Did he personally kill thousands of innocent people? No! But, Adolph Hitler did not kill millions of human beings, personally. Yet, I think that we all know that Hitler was a mass murderer of the highest, most savage and cruel degree. To use the metaphor of the fable Hansel and Gretel; there was no trail of bread crumbs leading from the death camps of Europe to Hitler's headquarters anymore than there is a trail of breadcrumbs leading from the remains of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon to bin Laden's campsites. Yet, there's no doubt that they are the responsible leaders for these crimes against humanity. They were both guilty of mass murder.
“Men like bin Laden and Hitler, and there are others in history like them, influence followers to do their bidding for them. Bin Laden was able to marshal the forces of Islam to do his bidding. Many essentially peaceful Muslims have rallied behind this man to become warriors in this Holy War. What the psychology behind all this is, in terms of being able to attract and hold thousands of followers and get them to commit murder and suicide for him, I don't know. But it's here, and the world must deal with it.
“There are some whom would say that America brought this on itself, because of its policies, imperialistic ways, demagoguery, arrogance, nation making and so forth. But, make no mistake, people like bin Laden needed "something" in which to foster hate, in order to achieve their goals and rally followers,to implement their warped and cruel plans towards these ends. Today the United States of America is that "something." Strangely, it's easy to rally the passion of hatred against a highly developed, powerful and affluent society such as the U.S. It would seem that it's easier to engender hate than it is to follow the example. Envy and jealousy can't be ruled out as part of the equation. But, again, it makes little difference what the motivation is. The fact is it has to be confronted and defeated.
“Osama bin Laden hid behind the facade of religion to attract believers in Islam, and "trap" them into doing his bidding while secreting a hidden agenda, or the disease of madness. But, again, it makes no matter his reasons, he was a terrorist, his followers are terrorists, and they must be dealt with.
“How did we get where we are today? Why do so many people and nations dislike us, even hate us? Could it be our past and present policies in that region of the world? Is it because we have befriended Israel, and given them moral support, aid and have continued to support them, even when they may have been wrong in their actions? Is it because that some of the nations in the region have tyrannical and oppressive governments and leaders that seek power and control beyond their current territories? It may be all of the above, or none of the above. The way things are unfolding, it is only important that we vigorously defend ourselves, and maintain an unyielding resolve to win this war against a formidable and determined foe."
Part 2: Our failure to secure our borders; allowing anyone into the United States; more terrorist equal more terror.
If you don’t want a Paris, France or San Bernardino event in your community, it’s time to call for a total “Immigration Shutdown Now.”
Call your senators and House rep: 1 202 224 3121. Demand a stop to all immigration and stop to any Syrian immigration.
Definition of slogan: "Immigration Shutdown Now means the American people want a total shutdown on all legal and illegal immigration. That means we want all illegal immigration stopped by arresting, prosecuting and jailing employers of illegal aliens. We deport all illegal aliens by taking their jobs away and as we catch them. We want English mandated as our national language. We demand a cessation of Muslim immigration in order to protect our culture, language and way of life. We can’t save the world but we can destroy our civilization. We demand a stable population that allows everyone to live, work and thrive into the 21st century. Especially our children." FHW
That’s why you need to take action. Send this series to everyone in your network. Educate them. Urge them to take action by joining these websites to become faxers of prewritten letters and phone callers. We must force Congress into an “Immigration Shutdown Now!
