Terrorism and Body scans

After the failed attempt to blow up a Northwest airline flying into Detroit, there are a multitude of voices calling for more — more security, more scrutiny of passengers, and even more intrusive ways to check out passengers.  Some are trying to say that a full body scan of every passenger would prevent terrorism.  Maybe it would help in some cases, but there are countless other ways to flush out attempted terrorism.   Before anyone mandates that all passengers give up their personal privacy or submit to additional xrays, it seems wiser to implement other security measures because, even without the evidence of a body scan, there were a gazillion reasons to keep this particular passenger off the airline.

The terrorist was on the list of problematic  passengers.  He was flying on an international flight,  AND, according to some reports, he didn’t even have a passport! Most critical of all the evidence against this man is that his own father reported him as a radical and potential terrorist.    If even one of those indicators had been understood and proper procedures followed,  this threat would have been eliminated before it could happen.  Other measures should include constantly updating the computer system with profiles of potential terrorists…and, we should use those profiles.  We should insist upon a current passport.  NO ONE should be able to talk their way onto a flight without the proper ID and passport and valid boarding pass.

And, it’s time to hold someone responsible for such obvious lapses in our airline security.  Who’s to blame?  After the secure environment provided by President Bush, President Obama has gutted our security systems.  He says we are not at war with terrorism, but the terrorists haven’t heard the message!  President Obama has to stop  mollycoddling terrorists and start securing the homeland again.  And, it’s time for the media to start honestly reporting the failures of the Obama administration because, right now,  Obama is giventoo much latitude by the press even when our safety is at stake.  Remember when President Bush was berated for pausing 15 minutes to collect his thoughts before speaking out on 9/11?  Well, Obama waited several days before addressing this terrorist event…and, then, his message was to “be more vigilant”.  Wow, that’s going to stop the terrorists in their tracks!  Oh, wait. Obama was on vacation, so we shouldn’t expect him to do HIS job, right?

This particular incident occurred because of a failure by authorities to follow their own procedures.  It does NOT prove that body scans are  needed for every passenger.   What we do need is an administration that understands that terrorists are at war with us.  After all, this is not just some misguided young man who “happened” to be wearing explosives in his underwear.  We need an administration that will make sure that terrorists know they will receive the harshest punishment possible for their acts, not that they get the use of  some public defender–at our expense — and free rein to spew their hatred in a courtroom.

President Bush was castigated for playing golf after 9/11.  Well, we now have a president who takes off for Haiwaii — he needs a vacation after being in office less than a year —  when our country is in economic turmoil and our citizens threatened by unbridled terrorism.  We need President Obama to quit playing games and get down to the business of defending America and all Americans!

United we stand!

Remember back when President Bush was first running and the critics claimed that the economy was the most important issue? Who created a first class, robust economy with tax cuts and other incentives for businesses which created jobs and wealth for all? President Bush. Who now blames the tax cuts for every possible woe in our country, despite a still thriving economy? The Democrats.

Remember back when 9/11 occurred and New Yorkers cried out for help? Who was there for them? President Bush. Remember who took the credit for all the federal aid that New York received? Chuck Schurmer and Hillary Clinton. Remember when the hurricane roared through New Orleans and the Democratic leaders of that state refused federal aid until it was too late? Who took the blame for that? President Bush. Did the Democrats ever concede that it was their own party’s officials who created much of the chaos? No. They blamed President Bush.

Remember how the country howled for relief from the threat of terrorism? Who reacted as strongly as he could with funds and ideas and leadership? President Bush. Even though the public demanded such a response, and now that we feel safer, whom do the media blame for the strength of that response? President Bush.

When Saddam was murdering his own people and becoming a world-wide threat with his support of terrorism, what did the public demand? They cried out that Saddam must be overthrown and his despotic regime thrown out. Who sent our military to save Iraq and the entire MidEast? President Bush. Even though they supported the action at that time, who now claim they now believe the war was a mistake? The Democrats.

When election time rolled around, did you notice how many Democrats claimed that they were misinformed — even though everyone in the world agreed that Saddam must be overthrown?

What thanks is he getting? The Democrats routinely vilify him with aspersions to his intellect and, even, his very character. The media cheers the aggression on. These people cannot credit President Bush with any good advance. They are blinded by hate and an incapacity to recognize an honest man when they see one.

But, the most eggregious action today is that many Republicans have also forgotten how much they owe the President for his help in past elections. Are you listening Senator Spector? Even those who supported the war when it was “popular” are now alligned with the Democrats because the war is now politically incorrect. These people have allowed the constant adversarial beat of the media and the hate-mongering of people like Ted Kennedy, Howard Dean, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton and others to set the agenda. The welfare of America is no longer the focus of their careers, but they seek the destruction of an administration and thereby, the enlarging of their own sphere of influence.

The Democrats are not the Peace party. No, they have created a hateful environment where even the President’s wife can be attacked! (See Kagen’s apology for details.) Because these people are so cowardly, they will fail to support our military and thus, our country.

I say it is time for ALL politicians to get behind our military. And, yes, that means you do not attempt to thwart a commander-in-chief who is attempting to save not only our country, but the entire world from terrorism. Politicans: forget your own self-serving goals and seriously consider the effects of your continuous barrage of insults and how those harmful comments damage our campaign to free Iraq. Don’t try to rationalize your public “heroics” as being for the good of the country. They serve only your own careers.

What is good for this country is to be united in the fight against terrorism. All the posturing by politicans will not save the nation. Remember the old adage?

United we Stand. Divided we Fall!

Is anybody listening?

A recent posting details the mindset of Iranian leaders. It is positively frightening. Read it and weep.

Ahmadinejad: Israel’s destruction near

Published: 11.13.06, 08:53

According to the Iranian media Monday, Iranian President Mahoud Ahmadinejad declared that Israel was destined to ‘disappearance and destruction’ at a council meeting with Iranian ministers.

“The western powers created the Zionist regime in order to expand their control of the area. This regime massacres Palestinians everyday, but since this regime is against nature, we will soon witness its disappearance and destruction,” Ahmadinejad said. (AFP)

Congratulations, Iraq

No matter how Saddam’s conviction and sentence is assessed by anyone else, his lengthy trial and conviction is a triumph for the newly formed judicial system Of Iraq. Hoorah for them.

Unfortunately, now that the verdict is in, many will try to second guess the decision. In fact, the first complaints are already being heard. The Vatican is against capital punishment and says that Saddam should not be hanged. Well,I am a Catholic, too; but, I believe that, at some point, every society should have the right to protect itself from violence. And, sometimes, violence itself is the only answer to the violence that stems from evil. And, Saddam is certainly evil incarnate.

Then, there are the Democrats who are already complaining that the verdict was orchestrated to help American politicians who have supported the war against terrorism in Iraq. How provincial to assume that every event world-wide is predicated upon its effect on America!!!! It is as if the Democrats see the world as a reflection of themselves and do not recognize that other countries have their own philosophy in how to handle their part of the world.

But, really, how can anyone complain? After all, the court was an Iraqui court. The judge was Iraqui. The laws were Iraqui. And, the verdict was Iraqui.

Instead, let’s appreciate the maturing nation known as Iraq and realize that their judicial decisions are a result of their own system and philosphy, not ours. Let’s try, even in this political season, to prevent anyone from using this Iraqui decision to divide American voters by postulating that the Iraqui verdict was driven by American politics.

And, let’s be grateful that another tyrant has been bested by the heroic American soldier. Without our soldiers, we all would be victims of men like Saddam and the radical terrorists.

God bless each and every soldier who stands between us and terrorism.

France Sucks

France sucks. They have zero worth. They just rejected our “War on Terror” saying it’s just caused problems. They probably forgot that we were attacked on 9/11. They probably don’t remember the 3000 people who died. Last time France decided to hang low and sit a war out we had to go in and bail them out. In the process we lost thousands of lives. Why does anyone care what France says? I for sure don’t, and neither should you.

For those of you who don’t have a clue as to what I’m talking about, let me explain. We got attacked by terroists. After being little panzy asses under Clinton’s useless term the terroists decided to attack because the US would be too gay (liberal) to retaliate. Well they guessed wrong. The best defense is a good offense. We decided to take this ‘War’ off of US soil and into the terroists caves.

What has this done for you? Well for starters there hasn’t been a terroist attack on America since 9-11. The whole idea behind terroism is to put fear into your victims. Too bad now America has put fear in the terroists.

When the going gets tough, liberals wine.
