"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

War on Terror....Weak-Kneed Liberals Don't Get It!

To hear Kennedy, Schumer, Kerry, Clinton, Reid, Murtha and so many other political hacks one would think al-Qaeda is our friend, citizens of the U.S. who warrant our respect of personal liberties and protection under U.S. Constitutional law. Hollywood as well wastes our airspace on trivial bluster and vitriol about human rights, the American way and Darth Vader, aka George W. Bush.

Surprisingly some movies have actually telegraphed the greater problem years in advance. In the movie "Nighthawks" circa 1981 actor Nigel Davenport playing an Interpol agent exclaims, "Once and for all, forget this police academy thinking. This is a terrorist! He doesn't think like a criminal. He wants to be a hero and you're going to treat him like some mugger on the streets. Get inside the man's head damn it! To combat violence, you need greater violence. To defeat a violent people you need to be trained to react in a given situation, with ruthless, cold-blooded violence as well."

Slightly over the top but in fact, war is hell and our troops pay the price in many ways including lost limbs, blindness, post-traumatic stress disorder and death. They make the tough decisions to put their lives on the line for the greater good, the liberties we in the U.S. enjoy and take for granted while we complain about gas prices, long lines and continually whine about small inconveniences.

Today the Patriot Act and international surveillance are depicted by politicians, the ACLU and mainstream media as infringements on liberty and personal rights. We receive sound bites without any material facts to explain away the truth about FISA, warrants and fighting an enemy in real-time. Intercepting enemy phone calls is necessary and the Executive Branch has a long standing inherent right under the Constitution to protect our freedom as well as our safety.

Politicians, Hollywood, Cindy Sheehan and the left-wing socialists forget the acts of terror on 9/11, the previous attack on the trade center in the early 90's, the 243 lost Marines in the barracks of Lebanon, the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole in Yemen, the dead Army Rangers in Somalia, and the hostage crisis in Tehran. These pacifists ignore the daily suicide bombings throughout the Middle East and watch the movie Munich as though it is fiction and a Jewish Olympic team was not really slaughtered at the hands of Arafat's PLO in 1972.

Hamas, Hezbollah, al Qaeda, Iran, North Korea don't want dialogue, they laugh at diplomacy. These terrorist groups, the proponents of evil want destruction of society as the free world enjoys it, at any cost. They want Israel removed from the map as well as the Western world. They can't compete fighting our military so they blow up cafe's, markets and buses frequented by civilians.

Debra Burlingame, a former attorney, and sister of Charles F. "Chic" Burlingame III, the pilot of American Airlines flight 77, which was crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001 accurately states, "A minority of senators want to gamble with American lives and ‘fix’ national security laws, which they can't show are broken. They seek to eliminate or weaken anti-terrorism measures, which take into account that the Cold War and its slow-moving, analog world of landlines and stationary targets is gone. The threat we face today is a completely new paradigm of global terrorist networks operating in a high-velocity digital age using the Web and fiber-optic technology. After four-and-a-half years without another terrorist attack, these senators think we're safe enough to cave in to the same civil liberties lobby that supported that deadly FISA wall in the first place. What if they, like those lawyers and judges, are simply wrong?"

Ms. Burlingame further states, NBC News aired an "exclusive" story in 2004 that dramatically recounted how al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar, the San Diego terrorists who would later hijack American Airlines flight 77 and fly it into the Pentagon, received more than a dozen calls from an al Qaeda "switchboard" inside Yemen where al-Mihdhar's brother-in-law lived. The house received calls from Osama Bin Laden and relayed them to operatives around the world. Senior correspondent Lisa Myers told the shocking story of how, "The NSA had the actual phone number in the United States that the switchboard was calling, but didn't deploy that equipment, fearing it would be accused of domestic spying." Back then, the NBC script didn't describe it as "spying on Americans." Instead, it was called one of the "missed opportunities that could have saved 3,000 lives."

In an interview with Der Spiegel, Steven Spielberg states, " I would die for Israel." However, when examining the entire interview, Spielberg is either hypocrite or ignorant. His left-wing mind is clouded, it doesn't see reality in terror for what it really is. He blames the "right-wing fundamentalists" as "narrow-minded and dogmatic." Spielberg claims his film "Munich" is meant to understand both sides of the equation, Palestinians and Jews. He "humanizes" the terrorists so we may understand them. "Do these critics really mean that terrorists are not human beings? I try not to demonize them."
xxx
Spielberg further states, "Jewish extremists and Palestinian extremists who to this day regard any form of negotiated solution in the Middle East as some kind of betrayal?" We agree, extremist have one mantra, all or nothing. they only see their viewpoint. However, Palestinians are having a hard finding the negotiating table and Arafat signed several agreements he never intended to follow-up on. Now Hamas is the official government of the Palestinians.

Spielberg then speaks from both sides of his mouth. "I believe that Israel's prime minister had to respond to the monstrous provocation of Munich: Jews were being killed in Germany, and that at the Olympic Games. She could not let an act with such historical implications, such a gross transgression by the Black September movement, go unpunished. Munich was a national trauma for Israel. So in principle I think she did the right thing."
xxx
Spielberg follows-up with, "Violence usually engenders violence." He confuses military action with terrorist action. On the one hand Israel did the right thing by liquidating the terrorists but they caused more violence through their violence. He forgets Israel went to the peace table in good faith with Arafat, a known terrorist in his own right. Arafat failed to comply with his promises, not the other way around.
xxx
Astoundingly Spielberg exclaims, "There is no connection between the Palestinian terror of that time and the al-Qaida terror of today. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict and Jihadism have nothing to do with each other." Spielberg doesn't explain how he reconciles this statement, he doesn't see Middle East terrorism as spawning from within in itself. He doesn't relate to anti-Semitism, anti-Western teachings within schools throughout the Middle East. Spielberg can't connect the dots yet he thinks his film depicts the truth. He doesn't mention Wahabiism the radical, fundamentalist religion that is taught in schools that teach the children to hate Christians and Jews and teaches them to perpetrate violent acts. It's doubtful Spielberg would find this type of educational system within a Synagogue or Western school.

Spielberg claims the Iraq war places restrictions on individual freedoms but doesn't comment on torture chambers and liquidation of civilians with mustard gas. Further, he doesn't comment on the torture of Iraqi Olympians. Apparently Saddam Hussein and his ilk get a free pass from the liberals as long as they find it in their agenda to criticize the Bush administration for taking action against terrorism. Killing the terrorists in the trenches is far more productive than worrying about bin Laden. The liberal take is war is bad, we need to seek out bin Laden and begin a truce. Even bin Laden recently suggested a truce, jumping on the Liberal bandwagon. Of course while suggesting a truce, Mr. bin Laden discussed a new terror attack on America.

Der Spiegel asked Spielberg, "During the first revenge killing shown in the film a shopping bag held by the victim bursts. The spilt milk is mixed with blood on the ground. Is this image saying to the audience: the time of innocence is now over for good?" Spielberg responded, "Actually, the milk motif occurs several times in the film. Milk means life. I wanted to present a constant confrontation between life and death. That is why I also often show Avner's pregnant wife and the baby she gives birth to. Giving life and taking life -- in my film they follow straight on from each other."

I once heard a Rabbi state, "Life is the most important aspect of Jewish faith." I asked him if he was Pro-Choice. He stated he was as was his wife. I then asked how he reconciles that position with his faith. I never received a response.

Ms. Burlingames message is clear. The public has listened to years of stinging revelations detailing how the government tied its own hands in stopping the devastating attacks of September 11. It is an irresponsible violation of the public trust for members of Congress to weaken the Patriot Act or jeopardize the NSA terrorist surveillance program because of the same illusory theories that cost us so dearly before, or worse, for rank partisan advantage. If they do, and our country sustains yet another catastrophic attack that these antiterrorism tools could have prevented, the phrase "connect the dots" will resonate again -- but this time it will refer to the trail of innocent American blood which leads directly to the Senate floor.
