    Default A TIME OF WAR - SEVENTEEN YEARS

    SEVENTEEN YEARS AGO

    Tuesday, September 11, 2018



    A date that will live in infamy...indeed. It was seventeen years ago this morning when all Americans were introduced to asymmetric warfare. To put things in perspective, by 1962, seventeen years after the bombing at Pearl Harbor, not only had Japan been forced to surrender, but all Japan's friends had been soundly thrashed. Although the new enemy - communism - was rising, the Axis ideology was no longer in existence. There would be no more Hitlers or Tojos in Germany or Japan.


    But seventeen years after September 11, 2001, the war against the Jihadist domination of the world is still being fought. This is not a war between nations or even between regions, and it goes far beyond the war of political ideas, between capitalism and communism for example. Some ideologies, either political or religious, can never get along nor coexist. It is difficult to define specifically who the enemy is because in all specifics there will be exceptions, but this is a war between a pseudo-religious political ideology, and the American way of life. And until 2017, even the President was unwilling to name the enemy.


    So today, on the day where so many went to work thinking it another normal day, lets remember them. Lets remember that our enemies are still alive and well and planning our deaths. Lets remember that seventeen years later, we are still living in a time of war.

    8 ...Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

    9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

    10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

    11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

    12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

    Psalm 2, King James Version (KJV)

    I think we all know who the enemy is, not some of them, not the radical ones, not the foreign ones--ALL OF THEM!

    I will never forget. I will never forgive. I was working a night shift the night before and I was having a horrible dream about an airplane flying into a building, only to receive a phone call from a friend saying "Turn on the tv!". It was like waking into a new nightmare. The rage has never left, it has only grown over time. I watch videos of the attack every year on 9/11 to remember.
