What the Left Never Will
About the War on Terror
Written by JB Williams
The first thing liberals fail to understand is that war is a serious
business. If you are not prepared to take a side, you had better not stand in
the middle of the battle field. Sit it out and remain silent, because the
minute you speak, you have taken a side, whether you meant to or not, and if
you speak against your own, you have chosen the wrong side. This error in
judgment among liberals has earned them the current title of un-American or
even Al Qaeda sympathizer.
Wrong from the start, the left actually thinks that the war on
international terrorism is all about one man, one terror network, one event,
one country and one day. How many liberals have you heard ask the question,
“What about Bin Laden?” or, “What did Iraq
do to us?” or, refer to Iraq as the “wrong war” in the
“wrong place”, a “departure from the war on terror” - a
war which in their feeble minds, exists only in Afghanistan.
This notion is akin to suggesting that WWII was only about Pearl
Harbor. Like Pearl Harbor, 9/11 was just a
calling card, an invitation to engage in a much bigger (world) problem. Like Pearl
Harbor, 9/11 was not our first invitation to engage in what was
fast becoming a world-wide threat. Like Pearl Harbor, it
was an invitation we couldn’t afford to leave unanswered.
We received an invitation to the war on terror as far back as 1979 in Tehran.
We received several more invitations throughout the 80’s and 90’s.
We were invited in no uncertain terms in 1993, when Bin Laden first attempted
to level the World Trade
Towers. We were invited again in
1995 by Hezbollah in Saudi Arabia
and yet again by Bin Laden in Kenya
and Tanzania in
1998. We received yet another open invitation to join the war against
international terrorism in October of 2000 with the bombing of the USS Cole, again,
courtesy of Al Qaeda. Meanwhile, much of the free world was already engaged. We
declined to answer any of these invitations…
We were not just patient in ignoring these invitations - we were
cowardly and short sighted. Only when the invitation reached the massive intensity
of 9/11, with nearly 3000 innocent American men, women and children dead, our
financial center, defense center and government center under attack all at
once, were we ready to accept these invitations.
A year before 9/11, the FBI had identified the New York Al Qaeda cell
that would one year later, fly planes into the WTC, the Pentagon and even the
White House, if not for the brave souls on Flight 93. But the Clinton
administration looked at the threat as a “criminal” matter. That
meant that the FBI and CIA could not share
information concerning the New York
cell and without proper warrants based on indisputable evidence, they did
One year later, that cell killed almost 3000 American citizens with
apparent ease and liberals still contend today, that the war on terror is a
“criminal” matter. They insist that the terrorists have civil
rights and that our courts, filled with frivolous law suits, is the place to
deal with this threat.
Despite numerous attacks and arrests all over the world, liberals still
think that the war on international terrorism is limited to one man, Bin Laden,
one network, Al Qaeda and one event, 9/11. Had we thought the same after Pearl
Harbor, we would have leveled Japan
and come home. Most of Europe would be speaking German
and every Jew on earth would be baked to extinction. Most of the world would be
living under communist rule and America
would not be America
Yet the leftists in control of the once great Democratic Party fail to
see reality. When they search for the enemy, they only see Bush. When they plot
their military strategy, they only see defeat. When you ask them about
terrorists, they think you are talking about American soldiers and when you ask
for their victory plans, retreat is their answer. The retreat plan was tried in
and we are still trying to justify that decision today.
Prior to the Clinton
administration, dangerous regimes like that in North
China and Iran,
had the desire but not the means to strike terror world-wide. By the time the Clinton’s
left office, both China
and North Korea
had long range nuclear warheads, Iran
and Syria were
working on it. But liberals will tell you that Bush made America
less safe, answering the invitation and taking the fight to the enemy on their
soil. Has there been another successful attack in the US
that I am unaware of? Not that it can’t still happen. That’s really
the point. It can still happen and if we don’t get more serious about
winning this war, it will.
The Hussein regime in Iraq had terrorized its citizens and neighbors
throughout the 90’s, broken every UN resolution ever written and played
cat and mouse with UN inspectors until Hussein finally got bold enough to just
toss them from Iraq, telling both Clinton and the UN to shove it. But according
to leftists, they had Hussein “contained”. Doing UN paper work I
Today, as we head into the 2006 mid-term elections, liberals remind us
that they have changed their collective minds about none of this. They still
think the world wide war against international terrorism is about one man, one
terror network, one country, one event and one day. They still believe it is a criminal matter
for our police and our courts and they still insist that America,
more specifically Bush and our military, are the real terrorists. They still
believe that Bush lied, that Iranian, Syrian and Arabian terrorists killing
innocent Iraqi citizens are just “civil insurgents” and that the
central front in the war on terror, is a departure from the war on terror.
Now if you can sleep well at night with your families’ lives in
the hands of people like this, God Bless! Knock yourself out at election time.
Vote yourself more money from the federal trough of socialist handouts and let
the chips fall where they may on national security.
But if on the other hand, like me, you have something to lose,
something worth fighting for, someone to pass this country on to in one piece,
then pay attention…
Clearly, liberals don’t get it. They don’t like
Bush’s war because they can’t begin to comprehend the very real
world wide threat that Bush decided to confront on September 12, 2001. They
don’t get it because unlike the rest of us, they see more wrong than
right with America
and therefore, nothing worthy of defense. They won’t fight because they
don’t know how and that limits their thinking to faux diplomacy via the
most corrupt institution on earth, the United Nations.
They fear Bush more than Bin Laden. They trust those European nations
that profited by keeping the most brutal regime on earth in business while
holding the UN and US
hostage as the international terror threat gathered global strength and reach.
They trust the UN more than the US
and firmly believe that we can negotiate peace with Muslim extremists willing
to strap bombs on the chests of their grade school children and send them into
a pizza parlor.
In short, liberals don’t know anything at all about real American
values or principles today and they know even less about what it takes to
protect and preserve those principles and values for future generations.
Therefore, the idea that they can be entrusted with upholding, protecting,
defending and preserving the very principles that they spend every day
attacking, is insane. But if insanity is your thing…go for it!
NO! They just don’t get it… any of it - and apparently, no
matter the mountain of evidence before them, they never will.
Those they have trained to be federal dependents will vote for them no
matter what. Those who can’t tell the difference between an American
soldier and a real terrorist will vote for them too. Those who can’t read
a butterfly ballot will vote for them. So will those just released from prison and
even those without a pulse.
People who believe that Americas “bubble of supremacy”
needs to be “burst”, like billionaire socialist and currency
wrecker George Soros will fund them, as will Hollywood limousine liberals, New
England ketchup queens and tree dwelling former draft-dodgers in the North
And that’s why the rest of us better show up on Election
