TERRORISM IN THE SKIES:

The Kamikaze attacks upon the United States

 

The enormity of it all seems beyond human comprehension.  The evil of it all seems beyond imagination.  The extreme suffering, the heroism of those who tried to save others, the innocence of those who paid the ultimate price:  All stand in stark contrast to incredibly evil and dark minds that perpetrated such monstrous acts in the name of God.

Now, what do we do to prevent further acts of terror in the skies and on the ground?

The only moral justification for the existence of any government at all, is to protect the natural rights of its citizens.   If our government fails to retaliate with the moral use of defensive force, then it will have failed the very purpose of its existence.  Our retaliation against terrorism worldwide, is not only morally justified, it is an absolute necessity if we are to prevent further acts of such terror in U.S. skies or against U.S. citizens throughout the world.  Make no mistake about it, this attack upon the structures and peoples of the United States, is an attack upon the natural rights of all freedom-loving peoples to be secure in their persons, property and freedom of political/religious choice.

We should give an ultimatum to the Taliban to deliver Osama Bin Laden, and all his cohorts, to us without further delay (he is already known to be the source of death for those in our African Embassies).  If they refuse, then Nato Nations should promptly invade and take over Afghanistan.

Next, we give the ultimatum to Iraq to allow sufficient Nato troops to peaceably enter the country and completely search the country for any evidence of violation of the order to not develop weapons of mass destruction.  If they refuse, then we should promptly invade and take over Iraq, seize Sadam Hussein, put him on trial and hang him.

We need to persuade all banking institutions of the world to freeze any funds they hold for governments and organizations that aid and abet terrorist organizations.  Those that refuse to cease acting as a repository and laundry for the terrorists, should be cut off from all world commerce.  We should post large rewards (and even political asylum, if necessary) for any whistleblowers that would report the existence of specific bank dealings with terrorists.

Those are just starter actions to root out worldwide terrorism and destroy it.

This is WAR!

It will be a long and hard battle. We will have to accept military casualties, but we dare not shrink from what must be done, or we will eventually suffer nuclear and biological attacks upon U.S. soil by terrorists groups that continue to gain strength, while too much of the world wrings its hands and worries about hurting innocents in those countries that harbor, promote and aid the terrorists.

There is no place in this world for more Neville Chamberlains.

Peace For Our Time
by Neville Chamberlain

The following are the words in the printed statement, which Neville Chamberlain waved, as he stepped from his plane, on September 30th, 1938, following the Munich Conference: 

"We, the German Führer and Chancellor, and the British Prime Minister, have had a further meeting today and are agreed in recognizing that the question of Anglo-German relations is of the first importance for our two countries and for Europe.

We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval Agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war with one another again.

We are resolved that the method of consultation shall be the method adopted to deal with any other questions that may concern our two countries, and we are determined to continue our efforts to remove possible sources of difference, and thus to contribute to assure the peace of Europe."

Chamberlain read the above statement in front of 10 Downing St., and then said:

"My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honour. I believe it is peace for our time...  Go home and get a nice quiet sleep."
