This is a partial list of posts from here, and a few from elsewhere, of the Bali terrorist incident.
Remember, this can come to America...
Before 9-11 there were plenty of signs of things to come yet the public, by and large, ignored them. The attacks on the USS Cole and the embassies in Africa just seemed so far away and raised very few eyebrows here. This attack in Bali should further our resolve. And, in a just world would bring many more nations to our side in this battle. Sadly, it won't.
Notice the damage to buildings in the area.
I disagree. We are now in World War III.
I used the word battle, but "World War III" is fine with me. But, in this war we have few allies willing to put up.
Yep. I know some will quibble over whether it's III or IV, but the point is, we are locked in a life or death fight with radical Islam.
All the pretty, moderate talk from politicians can't disguise that simple, stark fact.
The vicious attacks on civillians we have seen in Israel ( not to mention Finland... ) will come home to us unless we hammer those SOB's and those who harbor them.
