Reader comment on item: The Triumph Of the 9/11 Commission

Submitted by RPaine (Australia), Aug 6, 2004 at 22:28

Hello Daniel and Friends,

We should all be overjoyed about the triumphs of this Commission. But there is much work to be done, much catching up to do! We will have to wait to have a celebration about the Commission"s findings, for there is much peril for us counter. Speaking from my experience of living and working outside of the United State boarders.

The Triumph Of the 9/11 Commission's Report (and Daniel's summation of it) should be a loudly(!) and clear warning about the enemy, its aims, its methods and its enormity of its potential to harm Civilization – which means: No more women's rights; no more children's rights; no more human rights; no more freedom of speech; no more freedom to worship Your faith (or not to); no more opportunities for all. No thank you, I'm just not interested in what our enemy would like to do to us, modernity. Just as Neil Armstrong put it 36 years ago, upon stepping onto the face of the Moon, "One small step for man; one giant leap for humanity."!

Some of the elements that I am overjoyed about, include:
- "the strategist must name an enemy to defeat it". Well, the enemy has been named - the cancer has been identified. The unimpeachable force of Democracy and Civilization has spoken. It's Official!
- now, all of those that have been supporting Islamist can no longer shadow in-and-out of our walls when it suits them, to claim their innocence, and Civilizations "profiling persecution" of them as a protective shield against their exposure. We have removed the rocks leaving them nothing to slither under. They are now exposed!
- (like it or not) the United States has the most influence of any country in the world. So it is our responsibility to lead properly - i.e. with a plan the clearly identifies the enemy. The Report is critical towards helping all peoples around the world in combating the Islamist road to oblivion.
- ultimately, many Muslims with whom I have spoken, privately would like to evolve their faith unto a more peaceful ways. But this is very dificult for them because the then become prime targets of the terrorist - in their carrot and stick Islamification of Muslims.

It is imperative that all of us, especially political parties (Dem & Rep), the Media, all religions, and certainly all Peoples around the Globe come together to defeat this Cancer on the shoulder of humanity – Islamists.
