I found it is possible to read and post, albeit with some difficulty, if I use the "text magnification" function" of my PC, so, since I have been suffering from FR/WTFD withdrawl symptoms, and presumably will continue until my first eye is magically repaired on the 21st, with the "bionic" lens implant, and I gain my perfect --LOL-- vision in that eye back again (the other will be done 2 weeks later, and don't ask why the cataracts came on so fast, all I get is "they can and do" from the ocular type MD;s I will have to put up with the screen magnification and eyestrain, and the occasional misspelling......
OK....on with the WFTD.
We (the collective we of the cowardly heads of state) have waited far too long in the excoriation of the cowardly terrorists. I have been preaching like a fire and brimstone driven Gospel Minister since 9/12/01 that there is only one suitable answer for this ongoing terror. The problem seems to lie in two basic areas, first, we are deadly afraid to NAME OUR ENEMY and name them loud and long, just as in WWII. The second is the seeming weakness of resolve on the part of all concerned as well as the total forgetting of institutional memory learned during WWII when we had to deal with just such an enemy who regarded suicide attacks as honorable and "holy"... if one remembers, there was (I have no I dea if there is now) word for "surrender" in Japanese. At any rate, it only took 2 rather primitive, by todays standards, nuclear weapons to make said enemy find words to express "unconditional surrender". Such excoriation was necessary and saved literally millions of American lives.
We have, over the 60 or so years developed a huge guilt complex and apologetic knee jerk reaction at using what we developed to end what would have otherwise been a bloodbath of Biblical proportions.
OK....It is no secret here on FR that since 9/11 that I have advocated cutting the head off the terrorists by removing that for which they fight, and reducing their shrines to caldrons of molten, radioactive green glass. Such glass does not a shrine, nor a haven for terrorists make, and such an excoriation sends out such a powerful message that it is unlikely that attacks would continue, since any repeat of an attack would result in additonal conversion of real estate into green glass. It was also my statement that we dust off the Enhanced Radiation devices (a/k/a "Neutron Bombs", or more correctly, X-Ray emitters) to eliminate the combatants while preserving the infrastructure for whatever use we choose to make of it.
Since the MSM and the rest of the liberal talking heads seem to scream their collective mouths off about :it's about the oil" well, hell, let's make it about the oil.... I would far more like to see Old Glory flying over the oil fields than anything with a stupid crescent on it.....besides, it would do wonders for the supply and demand and oil futures LOL.......
I hope I haven't offended anyone by my rather draconian proposal, but dammit, terrorists only understand terror, and I say, give it to them in spades, and lest anyone think gwmoore is all talk, I will be more than happy to strap the aircraft on my butt, and watch that large black suppository come off the racks, the cables pull free, as it begins it's inexorable decent toward the double actinic flash. I will even be willing to do same prior to my cataract surgery, as I think I can still see a glass cockpit or a radar screen well enough to do what has to be done.... Besides, I can then use the line I have been wanting to use for some time in a book, but never have gotten around to writing same " And once again, the pure double flash of the actinic light of God's Creation shown upon the firmament, and once again, God saw that it was good, and the excoriation of those who would defile his world had been carried out"......OK, hackneyed, but I always wanted to use that darn line............
It's good to be back on WTFD with my usual rant, even if I have to have HUGE font size LOL... Keep the faith for freedom.

are deadly afraid to NAME OUR ENEMY
this is so true. we were in a restaurant over the weekend that had a newspaper clipping framed from WW2, and xshub was showing the text to xsboy. it referred to JAPS! can you imagine that, we can't come out and say our enemies are MUSLIMS let alone the perjorative, RAGHEADS.
Good to hear from you!
