Reduced to Terror Tapes
days before an election in

successfully altered the Spanish election in the way they wanted.
of this, I have been deeply worried about a potential terrorist attack
before Election Day. I say
this with many friends in cities that are likely targets for terrorist
attack. With only three days
to go until Election Day, I believe we got the only blow the terrorists
will give us: a terror tape by
is clear: staying tough on
terror has not made the enemy “hate us more.”
It has kept them at bay. Our
strength was not taken as a challenge to fight harder;
’s weakness was not taken as hope for a peaceful resolution.
Al Qaeda didn’t attack us this week for one reason:
they knew the vicious and quick response we would give them.
Bill Clinton, al Qaeda attacked the
once in 1993. They then
attacked us again in 1998 and then again in 2000 – three times in eight
years, an average of once every three years.
Those attacks were the 1993 the World Trade Center bombing, which
killed 6 and injured 1000; the 1998 bombing of US embassies in Africa,
which killed 224 and injured 5000; and the 2000 bombing of USS Cole, which
killed 17 and injured 3. Like
promised that “those who did it” would be hunted down and killed. They
never were and the attacks never stopped.
President George W. Bush, al Qaeda attacked us once, on September 11,
2001, and it hasn’t happened again.
The war is being kept over on the terrorists’ territory, not on
ours – against well-armed and well-trained soldiers.
take offense to people who might say “but only a dozen or so people died
in the attacks under
.” Killing just six people
does not make terrorism a “nuisance.” One life or three thousand lives
does not matter. Every person
killed was a person with a family, mother, father – possibly a wife or
husband and children. Seeing
as terrorists do not care who or where they attack, keep in mind:
that one person can be you.
I wish I could write about this upcoming
election, “Regardless who wins or loses, keep in mind our real enemy is
Islamic terrorists.” The
fact is this is not true. Our
enemy now is Islamic terrorists and those in
who want to see us destroyed. This
upcoming election is the difference between a man who will fight the
terrorists and a man who will appease them.
John Kerry already has a track record of meeting with American
enemies. He represents a voter
base of people who either don’t care about terrorism or sympathize with
terrorists. George Bush
on the other hand has prevented attacks on the
, reducing terrorists to doing nothing but making tapes and threats
against us. This election is
of massive importance for the future of our world.
I am pleading with you as a girlfriend, daughter, sister and
friend: please make the right decision
