For days now the world's media has been full of stories about the abuse of prisoners at the now-infamous Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Let's review. We had pictures of Iraqi prisoners in a pile, pictures of an Iraqi prisoner wearing a leash held by an female American soldier. There was a picture of another Iraqi prisoner being intimidated by dogs and one standing on a box with a hood over his head and some wires attached to his hands. Strong stuff, right? And ohhhhh ... the outrage!
Now ... what pictures did we see yesterday? We saw pictures of brave Arabs redeeming their manhood by beheading an American civilian named Nick Berg. These peace-loving Muslims first read a statement, then they pushed Berg to the floor and proceeded to saw off his head with a large knife while shouting "God is great." You could hear Nick Berg screaming .. right up until the time the knife went through his windpipe. When they were finished these brave Arabs, their manhood redeemed, held up his head for the camera.
Suddenly the pictures of what happened in the Abu Ghraib prison don't seem to be quite so horrific, do they? The victims of abuse at the hands of U.S. soldiers will be compensated by United States taxpayers. Nick Berg will be buried ... in two pieces.
Compare the two cultures. While America is investigating the abuse of Iraqi prisoners ... while America is preparing to punish those responsible ... while America is apologizing to the families of the prisoners and their countrymen for the actions of a few soldiers, and preparing to pay these families large sums of money .. while America is trying to do the right thing, Arab Muslims are slaughtering an innocent American civilian who's only crime was he was looking for a job trying to improve the Iraqi communications infrastructure.
This was a terrorist attack. It was an attack by Islamic terrorists, only this time it took five men to kill one American. One American civilian, or 3000 ... it's terrorism all the same.
Will this finally convince you that we are in the midst of a war? It's a World War. A war being fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, on Manhattan Island and the Virginia suburbs of Washington DC. It's a war being fought in former Soviet republics; a war is being fought on the island of Bali and in the Philippines. This is World War IV -- a war against fundamentalist Islamic Jihadists and terrorists. These are the people we are fighting. They are vicious relentless Muslim animals who will not stop killing innocent Americans and who will not abandon their dream of a world dominated by Islam until they are utterly and completely destroyed. These are people without a conscious who believe that the way to redeem their honor is to brutally slaughter innocent human beings, and this they do in the name of their god.
The question may be discomforting, but do these Islamic terrorist fanatics draw encouragement from the constant Democratic attacks on the president and the liberation of the people of Iraq from one of history's most brutal dictators? How could they not? How could these vicious Islamic bastards not draw comfort from Ted Kennedy's comparisons of Iraq with Vietnam? These Islamic fanatics know they're at war. They make no secret of their ambition and intention to destroy America. Do you think they haven't studied our history? How could they not know that America abandoned Vietnam to communist aggression when the going got particularly rough and when the tide of opinion in America turned against the war. Do they not hear the comparison to Vietnam from a leading American politician as nothing less than a prelude to surrender or withdrawal ... a sign of American weakness?
This vicious murder of an American civilian should serve to reignite the American resolve to destroy, not to appease, but to destroy the Islamic Jihadists. Now you show know that playing nice won't work. While we try to bring to justice the people responsible for the abuse of Iraqi prisoners, the Islamic fanatics cut the head off of an innocent American civilian in order to "redeem" their manhood. They're not men, they're bugs ... and they need to be squashed.
The retaliation for this vicious act must be firm, it must be swift, and it must have a violent finality. These inhuman Muslims must learn that these actions against Americans will not go unanswered ... and the answer will have a terrible finality.
Oh ... and just where are the Euro-weenies on all of this? Has anyone heard from the French? The Spanish? The Germans? I guess they're too busy adding up their losses since their buddy Saddam was tossed out on his Baathist butt.
OK ... SO LET'S CHECK ON THE MORAL OUTRAGE OF THE ARAB WORLD ....
... and of the Euro-weenies. Oh how loud was their condemnation of the American military for the abuses in the Abu Ghraib prison. For a while there the soldiers who perpetrated these abuses were the focus of all evil. As of last evening there was scarcely a word about this terrorist attack ... and make no mistake, it was a terrorist attack ... on America. The anti-American British tabloids had little to say. As for the esteemed (not really) Council on American Islamic Relations? Well, let's all sit back and just wait for the harsh words of condemnation from CAIR. Frankly, they're probably too busy monitoring the American media, especially radio talk shows, to worry about the atrocities being committed by their fellow Muslims in Iraq and elsewhere.
That was last night ... but what about this morning? What about today? Arab television channels, who have no qualms at all about showing bloody images, have yet to show the decapitation of Nick Berg. These television stations had no problem at all repeatedly showing any image they could get their hands on of American soldiers abusing Iraqi pictures ... but they just can't bring themselves to show the brutality of their own people.
The time is growing short. We know the depths our enemies will travel to harm us. Do we as americans have the will to triumph or will we succumb and sleep to our destruction.
"The Gloves are off. Abu Ghraid is open and back in business. We will win this war, and if that means engaging in questionable activities, we will do so, without apology to anyone."
Utterly and completely destroyed - that's the ticket. Forget reforming them, forget redeeming them, we must merely destroy them all. Each and every single one.
So far I think we have gone way to easy on them all. Those convicted of the first WTC bombing were not executed, even though they killed 7 people, and quite obviously attempted to kill tens of thousands.
The Marin Mujahadeen was not executed, how long will the Beltway snipers loll about on death row?
We really need to be killing a lot more people.
And I don't think it's that much of a stretch. The DNC and the 'Rat media will use ANYTHING to get their slimy butts back in power. They are beyond disgusting.
The Cold War was WWIII. We fought it for 40 years or so. Reagan won it.
