POV: America at War?

A friend of my wrote a statement on the New York Times comment page this morning about the happenings of the past two days, most especially the increase in airport “security”.

It went something like this:

“I lived through the Cold War, Vietnam, the Nuclear Threat, and I will live through this. I was disappointed in the Federal Government’s handling of Nam, especially with McNamara and his crew, and I am equally disappointed now. A certain group of people in this country who are weak, combined with the mentally deficient and historically challenged pacifists in Europe make a very problematic brew. We did not try to win in Nam and simply wasted 58,000 strong, brave lives, and we are not trying now. If you want to stop terrorism, go to the roots. We have to exterminate the Hezbollah, Hamas, Al Qaeda, the Mad Mullahs and president of Iran, and level Syria. We should demand nothing less of our government. Taking our toothpaste and our freedoms is not acceptable, too many people died for those freedoms. Shame on all of those who want to just stand by and let them win!”

I could not have said it better myself… well maybe a little better.

The point is the Times refused to allow it to be printed. It was in ”moderation” for almost 2 hours, then removed.

You have to question, since when did the New York Times decide that standing up for ourselves was something that should be censored? It is an example of the very liberal, pacifistic mindset that will get some or all of us killed one day.

Shame on them too, for sure!

Our New Nightmare, Part 1

I haven't written in a while, that doesn't mean I'm not pissed, far from it. These past few have given me many occasions to boil over. I just haven’t had the heart to write. Most of you may know what I mean.

This is Part 1 of my feelings on the middle-east situation. Some of you won’t want to hear what I have to say, probably most of you, but who gives a crap. I don’t agree with a lot of you and I would still defend with my life your right to say it.

Col. Rich Higgins. Does that name ring a bell? One of the few things Pres. Reagan did, or rather didn’t do that riled my innards, was to state that we would never negotiate with terrorist or abide by their criminal actions, and then never exact a revenge of Col. Higgins' death. Of course no other President did either, until now.

While serving on a U.N. peace-keeping mission in southern Lebanon, the Colonel was captured and eventually killed by the Hezbollah. He was hanged on February 17, 1988, never being given the status of POW which meant there was no attempt to save him by the U.N. or the U.S.; shame on both of them.

I won’t discuss the U.N. here, other than to reiterate my utter disgust for the whole organization.

We as a nation owe it the Col. Higgins to see that every member of Hezbollah is exterminated like the vermin they are.

If you want to know more about Col. Higgins, go to: Col. Rich Higgins: Prisoner of War?

Next time: Beirut and the Barracks. We are just getting started.

Crush them all,
