Five years after the U.S. was sucker-punched by sub-humans, my sorrow is still overwhelmed by anger.
I’m angry that terrorists were able to pull off such an incredible attack, in part because opportunities to stop them were missed. It didn’t take the ABC mini-series on the events leading up to 9/11 to know that the Clinton administration failed America’s security.
I’m angry that most “mainstream” Muslims have remained so silent over the hijacking of their religion, either because of cowardice or because they quietly approve of the jihad against America. If there is such a thing as mainstream Muslims, they should have declared a jihad against the fascists who are now the public face of their religion.
I’m angry that the mainstream media and liberals are undermining the safety of the U.S. They do not seem to differentiate between bringing down Presient Bush and bringing down America.
And I am angry that the World Trade Center site remains, as New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin accurately described it, a hole in the ground. Why did he feel he had to apologize for telling the truth?
It’s disgraceful that five years after the towers were destroyed, nothing has yet taken their place. I have a feeling that what most Americans would prefer is to have the towers rebuilt exactly as they were. And if terrorists knock them down again, rebuild them exactly as they were again. Why should we allow terrorists to decide what the New York City skyline looks like? They must take great satisfaction in our inaction.
If private enterprise won’t rebuild the towers, let government do it. I would gladly have some of my tax money go toward restoring the World Trade Center to its original appearance.
I’m also angry at the complancy that has settled over many Americans who don’t seem to realize what’s at stake. I don’t believe eventual victory over Islamic fascists is a given, not when the fight against them is hampered by elements in our own country whose actions weaken us.
On this 9/11 five years later, this should be a day when Islamic fascist hatred is matched by American anger.
