Now is the Time to Stand United....
Our hearts and prayers are with the United Kingdom and those who were killed/injured in the heinous terror attacks today, along with their families. You all will be in our prayers, and we as a nation will extend all our resources to help you. This event brings back memories of Madrid and 9/11. People were once again targetted for no other reason than their location, or rather, where they lived. Truly evil, dispicable acts by desperate creatures.
Today we were reminded once again why we fight the war on terror, and the insidious nature of the enemy we face. They claim to be waging a holy war against the armies of infidels, but they attack women, children, and civilians? These cowards do not challenge the soldiers in the field or even the governments of the nations they claim to oppose.
No, these cowards attack the innocent. And, contrary to some views, they ARE innocent. They were people going to work. They were going to the library, they were going home. What was their crime? Was it where they lived? Was it what they had? Well, yes and no. The animals who perpetrated these acts were desperate and loathing, loathing htose who believe and live differently than the terrorists live. They strike out because they fear freedom. They fear the changing power of freedom. They fear that their ancient and barbaric lifestyle is dying. And they are right.
Freedom does threaten them. It threatens the lifestyle of brutality--of beheadings, mutilations, assaulting and harassing women. It is not hte people targetted today, nor in Madrid, nor on 9/11 who are criminals. It is not George W. Bush or Tony Blair they are threatened by. No, they are threatened by the force of freedom, which exists in every heart. They think their system of oppression and fear is the best way.
However, instead of trying to present the merits of their way, they instead seek to deny their own people basic God given rights, and in their hatred and fear of freedom they seek to lash out like myopic demonspawn children, not caring who is hurt or what they break. They do not care for their god, they care only for their own interests of fear and power. They don't care who they kill.
These animals fight for horror. Anyone different than they are gets caught in the maelstrom. I am sure there were people in the Tube who opposed the Iraq war, but the terrorists didn't seek out those to take out and who to spare. They did not care who died. It is just about destruction and killing people to them. It is not about who is President or Prime Minister; it is about a war for modern civilization.
It is a war that is fought on changing terms, at various times. One thing that must not change is the resolve to beat back the barbaric tyranny and destruction. We must be committed to fighting the enemy. It is a war that we must commit to fighting and finishing.
We can no longer hide ourselves under the mantle of 'it is not my fight', or it is 'someone else's problem', or 'I don't agree with this so I am safe.' These psychos do not care about that. They only want to kill those who don't believe the same that they do. They don't target our governmental leaders, or soldiers in the field. They target innocent women and children. They target life. Plain and simple. High time we quit with the ideological debates and fight these animals before one day they drop the nuke on us, and we end up with global armageddon.
The time is now...Let's stand united....
