A National Championship?

Ok picture this, your favorite college football team has just made it to the College Football National Championship game and you are one of millions of proud fans lucky enough to get tickets to the game. The game is being played and it has been a very hard fought game. The other team has even been playing dirty in a means to win at all costs. It's in the 4th QUARTER and your team is losing because on the previous set of downs, the other team's defense puts on a blitz, takes a cheap shot at your All-American star running backs legs (which the referees didn't see) thus breaking his leg and causing the RB to fumble the ball. The opposing team picks up the fumble and runs it in for a TD giving them a 4 pt lead with 3:00 mins. left in the game. Your team then gets the pursuing kickoff and manages to drive the ball to the opponent's 15 yard line with just 10 seconds left in the game. The QB steps to the line of scrimmage and notices that the defense is lined up in an all-out blitz formation. Ok question: What do you want the starting QB to do? A. Do nothing and keep the same play called and hope the defense does not break his legs and cause him to fumble and lose the game. B. Have the QB announce over the PA System to the entire 100,000 people in attendance that he intends to change the play thus tipping off the defense of his intentions also. C. Have the QB call a secret audible (that only his teammates can decipher) thus changing the play for a pass in the end zone to win the game.

Ok now picture this, your country is at war and you are one of 300 million proud Americans lucky enough to live in a free democratic country. The war began when an enemy attacked your country (which the United Nations Referees didn't see coming) thus killing 3000 Americans on a sunny autumn day in September. In the aftermath of the brutal attack, your President gives an address to a joint session of Congress on a Thursday night just 9 days after the attack. He tells you and all Americans this:
"Americans have known surprise attacks, but never before on thousands of civilians. All of this was brought upon us in a single day, and night fell on a different world, a world where freedom itself is under attack." "Americans have many questions tonight." Americans are asking, "Who attacked our country?" He answers: "The enemy of America is not our many Muslim friends. It is not our many Arab friends. Our enemy is a radical network of terrorists and every government that supports them. Our war on terror begins with Al Qaeda, but it does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated. We will direct every resource at our command -- every means of diplomacy, every tool of intelligence, every instrument of law enforcement, every financial influence, and every necessary weapon of war -- to the destruction and to the defeat of the global terror network."
This brutal war on terror continues and the enemy is changing tactics such as suicide bombers, IED roadside car bombs, beheading innocent Americans. The enemy's leaders publicly announce their intentions to destroy the United States, Israel and all infidels. Your President steps to the line of scrimmage and notices the enemy searching and planning new ways to attack the United States again. What do you want your President to do? A. Do nothing and ignore the terrorists like we did in the 1990s and hope they do not attack again. B. Have the President brief members Congress about our secret intelligence and plans to catch or kill terrorists for which is leaked to the Mainstream Media such as the New York Times, Washington Post or USA Today thus revealing all of our plans to the enemy.
C. Have the President announce to all Americans and broadcast it all over the world our secret intelligence and plans to catch or kill terrorists thus revealing all of our plans to the enemy. D. Have the President maintain a secret plan and strategy (that only the TOP advisors in CIA, FBI, DOD, State Dept, and USSC can decipher) thus utilizing "every means of diplomacy, every tool of intelligence, every instrument of law enforcement, every financial influence, and every necessary weapon of war -- to the destruction and to the defeat of the global terror network"


Here is a small list of what terrorist apathy and appeasment can lead to:

  • February 26, 1993: Six people killed and about a thousand injured after a truck bomb explodes in the basement of the World Trade Center towers in New York.
  • October 3, 4 1993: Eighteen American soldiers are attacked and killed in Mogadishu, Somalia. A U.S. indictment later charged bin Laden and his followers with training the attackers. This is the incident described in the movie Black Hawk Down.
  • January, 1995: Following an explosion in a Manila apartment, Philippine police uncover a plot, code-named Bojinka or “Big Bang,” to blow up 12 airplanes bound for the U.S. Authorities arrest Abdul Hakim Murad, a Pakistani who is an associate of Ramzi Yousef, implicated in the Twin Towers bombing.
  • November 13, 1995: Five US soldiers and two Indian nationals are killed and more than 60 people wounded when a car bomb explodes in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
  • June 25, 1996: Nineteen killed and 386 wounded when a truck bomb explodes at the US military base of Khobar near the town of Dhahran in Saudi Arabia.
  • August 7, 1998: 224 people killed and over 5000 injured, mostly Africans, when US embassies in Nairobi and Dar-es-Salaam in east Africa are bombed.
  • October 12, 2000: 17 US sailors killed and 38 injured when a suicide attack on USS Cole in Aden is carried out.
  • September 11, 2001: Nearly 3,000 killed as hijacked airliners destroy the Twin Towers in New York city and crash into the Pentagon.

    Here's what your elected officials think

    There have been zero terrorist attacks within the US Borders since 9/11/2001. Ever wonder why?
