Two Faces

Reader comment on item: Annapolis Blues

Submitted by John R. Peacher (United States), Oct 25, 2007 at 10:04

In the years following the attack of September 11, 2001, the United States has lost its will and resolve to fight terrorism. We are in a quagmire in Iraq and are slowly losing a battle in which we declared ourselves victorious in Afghanistan. Oil has reached $100 per barrel and may go higher. The billions of dollars given for oil from radical Islamic nations are being used to build mosque's and schools that further spread the hatred of everything Jewish, American, or Western.

We have gotten ourselves into quite a pickle, haven't we?

Now, we demand of our only true friend in the Middle East that they carve up their land further and compromise and reach agreements with entities that not only speak of Israel's destruction, but act out on their desire at every opportunity. Have we lost our sanity along with our will, our resolve, and love of a peaceful life? It appears so. Our nation, along with Europe, have been seduced and dragged down into the serpents pit of compromise and trickery; we not only taken a bite of the forbidden fruit but have eaten the entire thing, seeds and all!

Once Israel is gone, which is very possible with Iran saying they have 11,000 rockets ready to fire if attacked, the United States of America is next.

It is time to awaken from our slumber party and realize that we do not have to fear WW III, we are in the midst of it. A massive strike at the Iranian nuclear and other weapon sites, and additional sites in Syria should be forthcoming. Additional strikes should occur if any government condemns this action or threatens retaliation. Leave no compromise or negotiation.

Until the fanatics that lead nations realize that we do love democracy, we do love freedom, we do love the equality of all citizens and that we will not compromise these values, this nonsense will continue and thousands of innocents will continue to be murdered. If the citizens of Islamic fascist nations are not willing to rise up in protest against those who hold them captive, the civilized nations will hold them accountable. There is a price to inaction; always has been and always will be.

The United States has been bewitched and is under a spell of double speak from enemies we declare to be our friends and the desire to negotiate our safety from those whose only desire is our total destruction.

Like the historic Samson in the Book of Judges, we have laid with the harlot so long that we do not realize that our strength has left us. The locks of our hair have not been cut, we are completely bald.
