Reader comment on item: My Gloom: Back to September 10

Submitted by Dan (United States), Dec 21, 2005 at 11:55

I have not forgotten 9/11 and remain as angry today as the moment I saw it happen. Unfortunately, I fear Mr. Pipes comments are, in the main, correct. The west does not consider the danger it faces imminent and so it is swept under the rug. Our own political correctness and legal system conspire to silence us from discussing in candid terms the nature of the problem. It would seem the seeds of our destruction are embedded in our culture and it only takes a ruthless and poisonous ideology, which is shielded from overt identification and discussion, to take advantage of our lapses. I shall be dust long before any of this comes to pass but I am deeply saddened to think this could happen here because of our inability to confront the ugly reality. I simply don't know exactly what will awaken this country to the long term danger it faces.
