This is what I like about your work. There is no mistaking the message being presented. No wishy washy, politically correct nonsense. Great job as usual.
My daughter watched the History Channel last night with me, a show entitled 102 Minutes That Changed the World. Perhaps you watched it yourself, Bosch. It was a documentary about the attacks of 9/11 as told by and through camera phones and camcorders of ordinary New Yorkers on that very day. As we watched in silence and felt the palpable horror those people experienced first hand, my daughter said something very profound..."Those bad people caused a 'hurt attack' that day." Indeed they did. I hope and pray your work will continue to show the truth about that historic day so that another 'hurt attack' can be prevented.
And another fantastic image. (Forgot to mention that in my previous comment.)
Mike,Your daughter is wise and probably very young. Some people would berate you for letting your daughter watch that show, I for one applaud you.
Thanks, my friend. We always want her to have as broad and open an education as possible, with as many experiences as she can handle. I can see where people might take umbrage with showing a youngster such imagery, but since she was situated between her mom and me, she was free to ask questions and received as straightforward and honest of answers as we could muster.
Very cool! I recently watched an edited version of "Rules of Engagement" and it reminded me of what kind of enemy we are facing. When our troops send the terrorists and their supporters into the hell-fire they say is in store for non-Muslims, I cheer.
Thanks, MM, and there's no other way to face this kind of enemy than as openly and honestly as one can. There's no point in bringing nuance into a black and white fight, never. Mike, thanks as always, and I recorded the show, going to watch it later this week. It definitely was a 'hurt attack' that the bastards got off, and until we get rock solid people in power who finally do what needed to be done on midnight 9/11/01, another attack's coming because wars don't fade away, they end with far bigger attacks than the one that started them, we just had better be on the giving end of that.
Thanks, Godfrey, and if you get a chance, check out the book 'Lone Survivor' by Navy Seal Marcus Lutrell, it's as damning and indictment of our [Golden] Rules of Engagement as I've read.
Unfortunately, that very well may be the case, Bosch. Pathetic that there's so little action. All of it has mostly been reaction as far as I can tell. The media reports that Afghanistan is no longer as stable as once thought. The Infidel is definitely the kick start we need in the interim.
That's right, Mike, we have been the half-hearted reactors in this war, and since no one in government paid an immediate price for allowing a growing threat that culminated in 9/11, they continue to fail us today with impunity, putting off what must be done. And since our government has a monopoly on force against this enemy, we Americans sit here at the mercy of those who don’t even have the nerve to call the enemy by his name, much less take him on in kind. And Mike, about your mention of the enemy rising up again in Afghanistan, there’s this, from a piece from the Ayn Rand Institute:'...According to news reports, the number of roadside bombs has been climbing (from 1,931 in 2006 to 2,615 last year). More Americans died in Afghanistan this year, so far, than did in the first three years of the war, combined...'Big government goes tiny on the enemy and our soldiers, like Atlas, carry the entire burden of this war on their backs, while being hamstrung in all kinds of ways. And then they have to be told that there are 'No Strike Zones' for things such as enemy bases that they call 'mosques’. Our response since 9/11 may as well be called ‘Operation: Give Jihad a Chance.’ I’ve got my outlet in my work, and it does help me to lesson the anger at seeing our country and its people threatened by an enemy who has no right to exist, and which we have the power to obliterate Tonight.
I see Islamic Jihad of Yemen has bombed the US embassy there. The Obamaniacs will probably try to claim Bush staged it. Most of the rest of the public is asking, "Where the hell is Yemen"?
Recent story floating around the news world:[A prominent Saudi Islamic cleric has issued a fatwa, or religious edict, against Mickey Mouse, whom he characterized as an agent of Satan sent to corrupt young minds. Sheikh Mohammed Al-Munajid told Saudi Arabia's Al-Majd Television that his beef with Mickey is that he is a mouse, a creature that Islam sees as "repulsive and corrupting." Al-Munajid explained that Islamic law refers to the mouse as "little corrupter" and a creature that is "steered by Satan," and grants permission to all Muslims to "kill [mice] in all cases." Therefore, according to Islamic law, insisted the sheikh, "Mickey Mouse should be killed."]
It's not just Mickey Mouse, folks. Soap operas are being banned as well in Saudi Arabia. They should be in our country, but for different reasons. Are these people just so darn frightened of sexuality or what? It reminds of Dav Pilkey's great series of Captain Underpants books. In them, the main character, mean old Principal Krupp (who is also Captain Underpants)gives detentions to students at Jerome Horwitz Elementary for smiling and having too much fun learning. This is exactly the same kind of thing happening in Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries. "Oh, let's suffer in this life so we can (MAYBE) live the good life in paradise." I'm amazed this kind of mindset still exists in the 21st Century.Thomas T. Worthington
