Out with the old, in with the new, REALLY?

As we approach the new decade we believe we have left all that partisanship and Bush bashing behind us, right?

After all haven’t we won the “War on Terror?”  We are now looking at these “isolated extremists” as just man made disasters, not as a movement of radicals hell bent on destroying the West , namely the United States.

Some have not wanted to believe that these radicalized Islamic extremists as nothing more than disgruntled employees, like they were only going “postal”. They see them as nothing more than just everyday criminals.

I suppose if they were to target only abortion clinics they may be taken more seriously.

It is so easy for the left to blame Bush and Gitmo for the hatred of the  Jihadists.  I guess they have no sense of history or no sense at all.  Let me take you down memory lane from WWII.

In the 1950s, we had the FLN in Algeria, Puerto Ricans trying to assassinate Truman and setting bombs in the Capital building.  There were 7 major incidents of terrorism worldwide.

The 1960s presented us 8 international terrorist incidents.  We had Senator Robert F. Kennedy assassinated by Palestinian immigrant Sirhan Sirhan on 1st anniversary of Six Day War.

When we get to the 1970s we are faced with an increase of 55. Bombs exploding at La  These include internal and international, the Weather Underground (Bill Ayers) to the IRA to the PLO hijackings and bomb planting on airlines, PanAm 110. TWA 841 and Swissair 33, just mention a few.  We have hostages taken in D.C., bombs going off at LaGuardia Airport.  We saw assassination of Lord Montbatten and the Iran Hostage Crisis. Eleven Israeli athletes massacred at the Munich Olympic Games.

Terrorists escalate their evils to more than 65 during the 1980s.  We have the assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat by Islamic Jihad.  Carlos the Jackal is still planting bombs in France.  Airlines are bombed and more assassinations took place, Indian prime minister Indira Gandhi is assassinated as is the Lebanese Prime Minister Bashir Gemayel.  Cruise ships are hijacked more airliners explode in the skies.  Marine barracks and Harrods Department store are bombed.

The 1990s didn’t fair any better with Clinton as president, over 60 incidents including the first World Trade Building bombing, to the  embassy bombings, to the Cole, and we must not forget the Russians began to have their country feel the terrorists’ hatred.

The onset of the new millennium began as the 90s ended with more and more terror.

The old phrase of one man’s terrorist is another’s terrorist seems to plague Europe and the UN.  It is pathetic for so many who cannot distinguish the difference between the freedom fighting that is going on in Iran at this very moment and the Jihadis that are the perpetrators of terror for no freedom but to conquer and eliminate Western civilization.

Theo van Gogh, a film director and journalist, was assassinated in broad daylight in Amsterdam on November 2, 2004. He was repeatedly stabbed and his throat slit. They say his assassin has “radical Islamic fundamentalist convictions”.

The events of the past few weeks have shown that Mr. Obama has not curbed the thirst of these Jihadis.  I do have a sense that they have only grown in their hatred.  They see a weak fumbler in the Whitehouse, and I am sorry they have less respect for this one than they did the last occupant.  I do prefer a cowboy to a community organizer any day.

It won’t be easy for a man in his forties to come to grips with the fact that he has been lied to all his life by his Leftist friends and family members.  We can only hope that he has a real and true awakening.  He can stop trying to reorganize the USA and realize that it is the last great hope of the world, not as they would like it but as our founding fathers perceived it to be.  There is nothing wrong with the USA that getting the Leftists out couldn’t fix.

Mr. Obama has entered a realm that he is unqualified to manage.  Dependent on all his cronies to make him “look” good and get all those Leftist agenda items accomplished has only compromised the safety and security of America.  They lack the ability to see the world as it is.  They live in a fantasy of trying to make a world of their own design.  They have come to believe in the lies and have no way to relieve themselves of this affliction.

Perhaps the change we can believe in is the awakening of the Left to the reality of the real world, and their futile attempts to convince us of their righteousness as meaningless and useless.  We can only hope that they can drop to their knees and ask us to forgive them for they do not know what they do, but I am not holding my breath.
