Too Nice or Too Naive?
Ever since 9-11, when Islamic extremists waged war
, Americans have been bending over backwards to accommodate our very
enemy. This has included
dropping food on the same places we bomb, listening to and sympathizing
with leftists screech about killing “innocent” civilians, and even
agreeing that surely Islam is a religion of peace.
The recent attacks on American civilians in
Fallujah demonstrate exactly what this niceness has gotten us.
Four American civilian corpses were dragged by a “jubilant
mob” through the city and two of the corpses were hung off of a bridge
after rebels ambushed their vehicles.
Fallujah is known for being a hot spot for violent
anti-Americanism. What were
the civilians there to do? Help
deliver food to the people.
We were commanded by leftists to worry about the
“innocent” civilians in
when going to war. In fact,
any time the US considers military action, various socialist groups
always cry at us about the civilians – as if this is reason enough
that we should never engage in war.
In the recent Fallujah attacks, it was not
organized terrorists that hung Americans off of a bridge as if they were
animals and dragged their corpses through streets with glee.
It was a “jubilant crowd” filled with civilians.
As far as I’m concerned, these civilians are the
enemy too. A population has
a responsibility for the government in place and also a responsibility,
obviously, for how it behaves itself.
When we are at war with a tyrannical government, if the
population works to overthrow that government and does not wish death
and destruction on us solely for being us (please note the Americans
killed in Fallujah recently were civilians), such as the Iranian
civilians, then the civilians are not our enemy – in fact, they are an
asset. But civilians who
erupt in mass joyful glee at seeing dead Americans being abused and
Probably the most self-destructive, altruistic
position of the
, however, is our unwillingness to do the simplest, least bloody thing
we can do to fight this war on terror:
fight ideologically by condemning Islam as being the violent
religion it is, responsible for producing terrorists.
Paul Bremer announced that the brutal killings in
Fallujah were against the tenets of all religions, “including
Islam.” That is
interesting seeing as Fallujah was once known as the “city of
mosques.” With all those
mosques there to guard against making the “wrong interpretation” of
Islam, how could such violence break out?
The fact is Islam creates exactly the kind of
brutality seen in Fallujah. Islam
is an ideology that hates, above all things, man.
In Islamic art, they are forbidden
to draw the human form for the “work of man will never equal that
of God’s,” which is why much of Islamic art is of flowers.
If you have watched the Muslim
men beat themselves or parents cut their little children on purpose,
this evidence is enough to prove Islam hates man and worships death.
No matter how many terrorists we scout out and
kill, new ones will spring up. So
as long as Islam is around, taken literally, and practiced, terrorism
will always exist. “The
truth is that the ideology of the terrorists is the same ideology of the
‘moderate Muslims.’ We are just fooling ourselves if we believe that
there is a peaceful Islam and a warring Islam. Islam is Islam and when a
Muslim goes to practice it he becomes a terrorist. “ – Dr. Ali
Terrorism Ideologically. We
are sending our soldiers in, to die, without providing them with the
intellectual and moral support they need to ultimately win the war.
The reason why Americans are so benevolent and
unwilling to see evil is because we are naïve.
We really are like babies with a lollipop.
I was told by a foreign friend once that he sold cheap jewelry
out of vending machines to people for up to $100, because the Americans
believed his stories of their greatness.
Americans are naïve because we have not been faced with pure,
raw evil before.
has never experience a Hitler the way
has or a Mussolini or a Stalin or any of the terrors that have ripped
almost every other country in the world.
That, however, changed slightly on 9-11.
Unlike our response when a US soldier’s corpse was dragged in a
similar fashion through the streets in
, the overwhelming sentiment from Americans in response to Fallujah is
that we must not let these attacks scare us or back down.
This is a good thing, but we still are not willing to commit
ourselves fully to this war, most evidenced by the fact that we keep
apologizing for Islam. It’s
time to stop it. Pure, raw
evil does exist and we must treat it as such.
