9/11: Fifteen Years On

First: We Remember.

But then let us with a cold eye assess situation across the world. What we see is not encouraging. The enemy, in his mind-numbed barbarous hordes, is on the march. Age-old kinsmen and allies appear to be incapable of acting on their own behalf even as they endure the attacks and defilement being brought to them. We await leaders who will rally us and defend us and our allies, even as those who understand what is going on try desperately and manfully to forestall a brutal and bloody reckoning, while being reviled and mocked by the ones they are trying to save.

It’s enough to drive one to despair.

But others have gone before us, and have stood firm without despairing. At Malta, at Vienna, at Lepanto and other places less well known, the enemy was defeated and turned back. It has been done before, it can be done again. And if civilization is to survive, it must be done again.

So with those examples in mind, we ought instead to redouble our efforts, rid ourselves of the quislings and collaborators, arm, prepare, and stand by to shore up our allies.

A final thought– here’s one example to keep in mind. Not a very nice man, that Vlad fellow, but we could use a handful like him now.

    I notice the NFL, who came down hard on Tim Tebow for taking a knee for his belief and being a positive role model for American kids, is all for allowing some no-time-in-life whiney ass bitch millionaires to take a knee in support of murdering cops; and then prevented a Tennessee Titans player from wearing 9/11 „Never Forget“ cleats. Which nation does the National Football League represent? Iran?

    Here’s an interesting group interview about the nature of terrorism post 9/11.http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2016/09/jenkins-hoffman-crenshaw-september-11-al-qaeda/499334/

    I think if we cast this as a religious war, we begin fighting on the terrorists‘ terms. And we’ll lose.
