Terrorism rises on American soil
The Washington Times ^ | May 4, 2010 | Editorial

Posted on 05/03/2010 7:21:02 PM PDT by Abakumov

Saturday's failed car bombing in Times Square was a reminder that the terror war is still on, if a reminder was needed. And as with the Christmas Day bomb plot, America only avoided catastrophe because of terrorist incompetence....

The Obama administration has done its best to de-emphasize various aspects of the war on terrorism, but the enemy keeps finding ways to make the point that they really do want to kill Americans. One of these days, their bombs will start working.

No surprise considering the rise in the number of Muslims on American soil.

I will no longer write about this. The USA is wide open and is being attacked on an almost daily basis. Innocent Americans have already died. You folks that voted for the present administration figure it out. My verbage on this critcal issue is over. I know who the guilty parties are, do you?

Obama and his minions will do everything in their power to disconnect the dots on every terrorist incident that happens while he’s in office.

They never “jump to conclusions”, you know.

NY mayor Mike Bloomberg just insinuated that a right-wing malcontent “upset with Obamacare” might be responsible for the Times Square bomb plot.

See how easy that is? He never even mentioned the possibility that this was an act of terrorism. In New York. Where 9/11 happened. Do you see how insanely out of touch with reality these liberals are?

Now hold on a minute GrayFox

Recognize these quotes?

"This is such a great country, the greatest in this world. I will not stand by and be silent while others try to weaken it or tear it down."

"I will not tolerate the anti-American mantra and America hating that now resides so heavily in the Democrat Party "

Sometimes when all seems to be lost, it is time to stand up and continue fighting.

When New York City is vaporized in a nuclear mushroom cloud (and it probably will be) I know of one lost life I won’t mourn.

I wouldn’t mourn the loss of Mike Bloomberg, or a host of other New York libs that come to mind, but I pray that we never see that fine city nuked flat.

“No surprise considering the rise in the number of Muslims on American soil.”

Yes, this is exactly the problem. Bring our soldiers back home and put them on the Mexican border, then ship all the Muslims back to Muslim countries. Why do we keep letting them in?

Funny…I thought the whole idea behind the current administration’s efforts to hug and kiss this problem into submission was working so well, I kinda forgot we were at war…

The Pakistani-born US citizen and a few other unmentionables arrested last night in the NYC “bomb scare” in Times Square are sure to be afforded all rights and privileges afforded to citizens, and non-citizen terrorists, according to the US Constitution…

Funny how liberals use the Constitution when it fits their needs…And discard it when it doesn’t…

Funny times we live in…

Just funny…

I’m turning my sarcasm switch off now…

This is not surprise, since we have a terrorist in the white house.

>Why do we keep letting them in?<

For the same reason we have one in the WH — we are suicidal.
