Winds Of War
By Jenni Vinson Trejo
July 14, 2006
The world woke up this morning to the reality that the winds of war are swirling all about us. The aggressions occurring between Israel and Lebanon and the saber rattling of North Korea have certainly broken the lull the American mentality had fallen into. Not even the most Liberal and political among us can continue to ignore the state of war America is in. The fact of the matter is that we have been engaged in World War III since Al Queda attacked America on September 11, 2001.
The events of 9-11 polarized nations immediately. Aliiances formed immediately to counter America in our efforts against Iraq. We had heated rhetoric against America from France, Germany and Russia and most of the United Nations (U.N.). Eventually we were able to dissipate their objections by exposing their roles in the bolstering Saddam Husseins regime. France, Germany and Russia and many from the U.N. all got caught with their hands in Saddams pocket.
Although George W. Bush has been accused of having isolated America and having refused to compile allies in this war on terror, what we see this morning is a very cohesive alliance that includes nations that we might have once seen as impossible to negotiate with.
On this day, when the winds of war are heated and heavily laden with danger, it will be the strength of these alliances we have forged that will calm the winds.
North Korea is Chinas bratty child and it will be China that will have to parentally punish and discipline North Korea. America appears to be holding back but negotiations are aggressively being carried out.
Israel is fighting terrorism being carried out against their military members. After the reaction America engaged in after our own terrorist attack, it would be hypocritical of us to ask Israel not to react as strongly. We suffered one major attack while Israel has suffered through hundreds of attacks all provoked simply because they existence. The enemies of Israel will not cease their attacks until Israel has been annihilated.
While the winds of war appear to be fierce and mean this morning, my analysis of these situations would direct us to a point of hope. America has successfully carried a message and an ideology of Capitalism to even the most remote and the most Communist of nations around this planet.
It will be this need for fledgling market states like China to continue to work towards financial solvency that will motivate these unlikely alliances of ours to bring pressure to bear against aggressors like Lebanon and North Korea. The Chinese will not likely opt to support a government into further isolation after they have suffered and sacrificed for decades for a Communist dream that never quite materialized.
And Russia simply isnt financially stable nor does it have much of an alliance of its own thanks to Ronald Reagans efforts against them. They have little choice but to join the alliance, however half-heartedly they may participate with us.
America has forged a course, not during this administration, but decades ago and even centuries ago. Our course is set for individual freedom in a strong and sovereign republic. I have aid this before, we are not the first American citizens and we will not be the last. We have to have to stay the course and be willing to defend our part of this nations future just like many generations that have come before us.
I find it interesting and troubling that America has been able to find a common ground of reason to mutually benefit us and nations we have held as mortal foes but we seem incapable of arriving at the same with Liberals among us. We have reasoned with China, but we cannot find a common ground with Nancy Pelosi, et. al. .
As these precarious winds of war threaten, may God Bless America and May He keep us all safe as He finds us each willing to defend what He has blessed us with.
Im Jenni Vinson Trejo. The Winds Of War is My Opinion. Thank you for listening
Um. That's where it started, but firing rockets with 300lb warheads into another cocuntry is nothing but war.
But one can keep hoping on the democratic element.
My only exception to this excellent article is that the Lebanese people are with us... and perhaps with Israel too, as they cannot get rid of these thugs themselves.
Bush's approval ratings should go off the roof.
Are you saying that Israel has "over reacted" in their counter actions? Expound Please.-- Jenni
If we are in WW III, it started long before 9-11.
Don't forget the Democratic Caucus.
I call that outright war, not terrorism.
Personally I think Israel has been too restrained too long.
Winds of War=Winds of Change. I pray for our country, our troops, our President and his advisors, as well as for Israel and Iraq.
Nice article, Jenni!
It started in a Lebonese Marine Barracks. For far to long we sat on our respective backsides and did nothing. We hoped it would just go away. We made a few fients but never REALLY took it to em. Now the very people that screamed the loudest are losing resolve. Stay the course. Mr President has continually admonished us with the fact that is going be a long LOOONNNGGG process due the the insidious nature of our enemies to not run up a flag before battle. So be it. If it takes 20 or 2000 yrs to win and there are 50 of us and none of them it will be worth it. I would rather die free than kneel to the east 3 times daily.
No, it is because of the failure of Russia to fully expurgate itself of its communist legacy, trying the KGB and all the Communist guilty of War crimes and crimes against their people. Hence, they never had a chance to effectuate thorough regime change. And this failure was abetted by appeasers and chickens within the first Bush and Clinton administrations. And the current administration refuses to come to grips with the growing realization of who Putin really is.
They have little choice but to join the alliance, however half-heartedly they may participate with us.
They have their Shanghai Pact. And China, is not a fledgling "market" country...it is an unreconstructed Communist State which is running the latest iteration of Lenin's "New Economic Program." Their currency would have been floating 12 years ago otherwise, and their people allowed to freely move...etc.
Not really, I think it started November 4, 1979 at the American embassy in Tehran. Just my opinion, though.
COncur except I think it started in 1948 when Isreal as a state was born.
Agreed. A good ole fashioned NJ beatdown on Tehran is way overdue. (I know, it doesn't sound as mean as an Alabama ass whoopping or a Texas Ass whoopping-but I have to represent).
.....Not even the most Liberal and political among us can continue to ignore the state of war America is in.....
That is a joke. The dimocRats are currently running an election campaign that is specifically not only ignoring the war but viruently denouncing any and all that have even the minutest interest in successful prosecution.
They are killing a party great because his wiews do not conform precisely with the party line.
The DNC has become Our worst enemy.
Exactly. And those missiles were provided by and in fact launched by iranians soldiers. It's high time for the U.S. to provide overt assistance.
"I would rather die free than kneel to the east 3 times daily."
Very, very, very good.
Most don't think about it coming to that point, especially those that are welcoming it.
Maybe it started when a tribal warlord, scourged with a mental disease, decided to create a religion to foster his goals and protect his assets.
