We are a nation who has seen our citizens beheaded, hung and burned, our soldiers bodies dismembered. We watched thousands of people killed in NYC…watched many of them jump to their death rather than be burned alive…hitting the pavement below, splattering it with their blood with those remaining inside being crushed to death or incinerated when the towers collapsed. Many familes didn’t even receive as much as a DNA sample to bury.
I’d submit to everyone that the criticism of the Bush administration and investigation of the CIA by Eric Holder, etc. is about “waterboarding” and the renditions program created by Clinton’s administration and continued under Bush and Obama (though recent news hints that Obama has dismantled the program).
The contention by Obama’s group and the left-wing is that the above mentioned techniques “do not reflect “who we are”. Really?
Well, ladies and gentlemen, allow me to describe who we are currently.
”Who we are” under this administration? We are a nation which uses drones to blow people to kingdom come and shrug our shoulders at “collateral damage” (that’s killing innocent people who are in the wrong place at the wrong time)…many of their bodies blown into pieces, becoming unrecognizable.
We are a nation which, when we dislike a leader, target him for assasination by missiles and bombs. If we miss and kill the guy’s grandchildren, the administration and the media all but ignores the “collateral damage”.
We are a nation which, when we have good evidence/intellegence, gathered over several years, that a terrorist murderer is hiding out in a specific place, orders an attack by the best soldiers we have and places a bullet in his head – despite that killer being inside the border of a sovereign nation.
Rather than being a nation who commends our soldiers and intellegence services for a job well done over many years, we are a nation which, after seeing and doing all of the above, and MORE, spends time “hand-wringing” about waterboarding someone who was responsible for slaughtering thousands of people within our borders and others who were accomplices or suspected accomplices in other plots…we are a nation of idiots. The leftist ideology running through this land has rendered the state of our union pathetic.
That there is even a debate over whether what has been done to kill or capture the enemy we are at war with, the enemy who slaughters us and others and thumbs its nose at all international law and the Geneva Conventions in order to institute a deep partisan divide among our citizens is an example of narcisistic insanity perpetuated by our leaders under the guise of “that’s not who we are”.
That’s not who we are? It most certainly IS who we are and it should continue to be who we are if we are to survive and this band of butchers we are fighting is to be beaten. We WERE the toughest, meanest fighters in the world, men who fought to win. If we are, now, afraid to hurt anyone in the search for our safety and security, we will die…and there are many out there who will not be sorry.
We either assert our will to live or we die. Those are our choices. it ISN’T a nice world out there…
