Skip to comments.When the ‘American Hiroshima’ comes as promised, our senators won't be guiltless

Hamid Mir, a Pakistani, is the only journalist to have interviewed Osama bin Laden and his deputy, Ayman al Zawahiri, since 9/11.
On the fifth anniversary of the attacks, Mr. Mir was in Afghanistan again, this time to interview Abu Dawood, the new al Qaida field commander there.
Final preparations have been made for an "American Hiroshima," Mr. Dawood told him, Mr. Mir said in an interview with Al Arabiya television last week. The attack or attacks will be led by Adnan El Shukrijumah, Mr. Mir said.
Mr. El Shukrijumah was born in Saudi Arabia in 1975, but grew up in Brooklyn. He was a friend of 9/11 hijack leader Mohammed Atta, and is both a trained nuclear technician and a pilot. The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5 million for his capture.
When Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the former al Qaida operations chief who planned the 9/11 attacks was captured in 2003, he reportedly told his interrogators that Mr. El Shukrijumah would be in charge of the next major attack on America.

Exactly!..Our politicians will have the blood of Americans on their hands they can't wash off.
That article said -- "Adnan El Shukrijumah was last seen in Mexico in November, 2004, where he allegedly stole a crop duster near Mexicali. He's plotting to kill as many of us as he can. If he succeeds, give much of the credit to those in the Senate who want to cripple our ability to listen in on terrorist communications; to track terror financing, and to interrogate terror suspects."
Yeah, the Congress has much more warning of the nuclear option (*now*) than it did of the flying of the planes into the World Trade Center (*back then*). But, then again, I see a lot of "sticking heads in sand" here on FreeRepublic, too.
The only problem with these nutcases is that for them, an "American Hiroshima" would equal "Pearl Harbor II" and "awaken a sleeping giant and fill it with a terrible resolve".
America has thus far been fighting the WOT with a single finger of one hand. If ANY "weapon of mass destruction" is used on American soil, the US will go to a full war footing, and all hell will literally be "out for noon" for the Islamofascists.
Gee, a lot of that sounds like standard Navy Seal training. If it's good enough for our elite troops, how could it be bad for A.Q.?
Five years after 911 and American politically correct politicians still have not learned anything. The American ruling elite is willing to sacrifice a certain amount of it's citizens in order bow at the alter of multiculturalism by allowing our borders to be wide open while 11,000 illegals (and some terrorists) pour into this country every day. If/when the next 911 happens, every politician in washington better head for the hills because the people that they swore to protect and defend will tar and feather them in the streets of a smoldering America.
You left out a few zeros = 11,000,000.00
That's what I thought on 9/11/01.
Now five years have passed and the CommiecRATs have successfully turned enough of us into wimps that even a major hit won't awaken American wrath.
More likely we'll turn on each other.
A day? Read again.
It will be a lot worse than tar and feathers .... think rope and trees
American wrath is more easily turned on President Bush, the one leader tough enough to fight for us, than it is on the enemy.
If we're nuked, the politicians will still be chanting "Islam is a religion of peace" and trying to pretend the death cult is separate from the terrorists.
This thread is going to get pulled because certain people are making threats against our congressmen.
It says a great deal about their lack of character and intestinal fortitude.
It also states volumes about how condescending and weak they believe we are. They fear telling the population the truth. They believe you and I can't handle the true ugliness of what needs to and should be done.
They value their own comfort and security ( of power ) so much that they try to keep us oblivious to the real world.
We may all go to the slaughter house but the majority will go fat dumb and happy because they have been coddled and spoiled by our so called leaders. ( although many are gooing willingly )
My error, sorry.
The day after a nuclear attack on America, or more likely, that night, most of the nations that are clamoring for our demise would be the targets of 21st century weaponry. And they are not nuclear. Nukes are old technology. Look at the F18 Hornet and a WWII Corsair, do you think similar progress has not been made in other areas of weapons technology? No infrastructure damage, no lasting contamination, no survivors. It will be politically unavoidable for the government to do otherwise.
"The American ruling elite is willing to sacrifice a certain amount of it's citizens in order bow at the alter of multiculturalism by allowing our borders to be wide open while 11,000 illegals (and some terrorists) pour into this country every day."
From constitutional republic to multicultural mobocracy in 40 years. Quite an achievement.
I have no doubt about our ability, only our will.
They already have the blood of Americans killed by illegals all over their hands...what's a little more?
Sadly, thats what I thought after 9/11.
I could see some on the left who say becuase the islamofascists have nukes, that we must negotiate.
Mighty brave words. But just who would we attack? Jingoism futures are a good buy for now, tho.
They choose to think of themselves as Citizens of the World, concerned with the welfare of all people of the world (as though non-Leftists were not), and holding themselves to a higher morality (than the rest of us).
In fact, they are blinded by hatred, hubris, and denial--the stuff of tragedy.
The Democrat Party is the Political Machine of the Left.
The "Mainstream Newsmedia" is its Propaganda Machine.
The Left--in fact--represents decadence--Western Decadence--at its sickest and most destructive.
Hell, try staying overnight in a hospital. I can pick out "sleep deprivation" and "sound and light manipulation" right away.
Don't sweat it. I'm sure they'll convene hearings, create committees, generate reports, and diffuse blame.
We had to dive under our school desks in the 50s when the threat was thousands of nukes going off all over the US. Many of those nukes would have been city busters, 20 megatons or more. This threat of 1-7 20kiloton bombs seems like a joke in comparison, although it would bring a major change to our world outlook.
Boy! Those were the days, huh?
C'mon...Congress is busy 24/7 protecting us. This this morning I had to show picture ID to a pharmacist to buy a box of non prescription cold/sinus medicine.
If they are interesting in this minutia in my life, surely they must be interested in the greater matters!
(And yes, I called you shirley.)
And my Senator, the limpwristed Lindsey Graham, will have our blood all over him, not just his hands.
Profoundly true and profoundly horrible!!!
No, sadly, I don't think it would. 50% of Americans would point their fingers at the Bush Administration and ask for their ouster. A percentage of that percentage would actually believe that 'Bush did it'. We are not the same Nation with the same resolve of 50 years ago. More heroism is going to be required of fewer people.
I think the enemy is perfectly aware of the divide in the country. Chavez showed that at the UN. They will hit when they know they can splinter us even more. When is that? I don't know.
Your second paragraph was very insightful in a very articulate reply!!! Bravo! Encore!
I was in grade school for duck and cover, remember it well. Because of the air force base, the helium plant, and proximity to Pantex where nukes are assembled, Amarillo was in the Top Ten of that particular Hit Parade. We believed it and lived it.
As you say, a pin prick nuke would change our world view... but would it change how we look at the internal threat, ie, radicalized home growns and border security? That our response is up for debate is an answer of sorts itself.
In order to be effective, deterrence requires warning. We need to let the Muslim world know that we are going to hold them COLLECTIVELY responsible for any "American Hiroshima"--both those who did the deed and those whose tacit sympathy and support allowed the actual perpetrators to shelter in their midst.
Bush needs to give a speech articulating the "Bush doctrine." "In the event of a nuclear attack by Muslim terrorists on American soil, we will immediately retaliate by vaporizing . . . " naming about 5-10 of the largest/ most significant Muslim cities--Mecca, Medina, Tehran, Qom, etc.
Give them a real incentive to stop Al Qaeda.
The Israelis should do this exact same thing.
Frankly, I think the world would be a much safer place today if we had nuked Mecca the morning of 9/11. Islam would have largely collapsed as an organized religion by now, and we wouldn't be dealing with all this bullshit.
What a humiliating embarrassment he must be causing you... awful!!!
Our politicians will have the blood of Americans on their hands they can't wash off.
I agree with you %100 However I doubt they would care . Most are cold blooded , self serving , greedy , corrupt power hungry morons. They have no sense of America nor do they care what really happens to it. The Democrats in particular hate Bush and want power more then they want America to survive and it's peopl eto be safe . Thats a fact I will argue with any Lib anytime , any place.
I concur. Ain't gonna happen though.
Answer; Washington D.C.... Attack Washington D.C...
The first cleanup starts in your own kitchen..
The 2nd amendment was not made to insure target practice or hunting..
I agree with Victor Hanson that you must ,BEFORE HAND, warn the sponsors of terror that THEY will be held accountable if anything happens. Be specific and talk in terms of total devestation . The leaders dont want to die , they send the unwashed idiots to die. Fro example , tell Iran if another 9/11 happens they will be one on the list of backers , regardless of what they claim . Then it's on them to reel in the maniacs of terror or die .It's the only way to go .
