9/11 Open Thread

We pray, of course, that at least one adult has been monitoring the situation in Washington and we won’t have a replay of last year’s Benghazi debacle…though even if it is pure idiots in charge, perhaps we’ll be graced with peace on the theory that we were so humiliated last night with Obama’s boneheaded Syria policy that we deserve a cosmic break.

It is hard to believe that 12 years have passed since That Day – also sad to reflect that 12 years on, we’ve pretty much lost the segment of the war which started back then.  I’ve long thought – indeed, within weeks of 9/11, thought – that we were entering a Thirty Year’s War…that the battle our enemies brought to our shores in 2001 would not be ended swiftly or easily.  Never did I imagine in the face of such a horrific attack that a good number of my fellow Americans would prove willing to lose the war if that would result in changing an (R) for a (D) in office.  But, so it goes – a prophecy once said that the poison unleashed in Russia in 1917 would spread far and wide…and so it has, infecting us here in the United States to the point where we have “the worse the better” leftists just as Russia did…hoping for and provoking catastrophe because, as was once said, you should never let a crisis go to waste (and “waste” in their minds is “not gaining political advantage out of it”).

Still, with all that, the effects of the attack will continue on – and part of the continuation is the increasingly clarity emerging from the fog of delusion we lived in since the end of the First World War.  All those who think understand that our civilization was attacked on 9/11 – and, furthermore, that it isn’t just people flying planes in to buildings which are the problem.  Indeed, a good part of the enemy is found in our bathroom mirror each morning…each of us when we are greedy or base or cowardly contribute our mite to the ruin we see all around us.  But things are changing – a bit of the Founder’s spirit does live within us.  Old Hickory also now strides the land and is winning some surprising victories when issues are clarified and the people simply cannot ignore the truth.  Heck, even some of our leftists citizens are starting to understand that just because someone mouths leftist platitudes, he or she still might be a creep – a mere tool of Ruling Class corruption (we on the right figured it out longer ago – which is why we’ve crushed so many RINOs in the past four years).  Some times I even ponder whether we shall Occupy the Federal Reserve and set things straight?  Perhaps, perhaps – and all part of the battle to be won both at home and abroad.

Today, pause a moment to remember the dead – stay away from all bitterness and anger and remember even those who drove the planes in to the buildings were driven by lies.  Lies are at the root of all our problems – to a Christian, of course, the lies of the Enemy…but believer or not, it is lies which are the problem.  Lies drove planes in to buildings, and have done many other horrors.  So, remember the dead – and pledge upon their graves that the truth is what you’ll seek…what you’ll fight for and if necessary die for.  Because the truth shall, indeed, set us free…and, in the by and by, win the war for us, too.

UPDATE:  The “2 Million Bikers” showed up in force in DC…offering an excellent, peaceful response to the deliberate insult of the “Million Muslim March”.

UPDATE II:  In re: Putin’s insulting little op-ed in the NY Times – up yours, Vlad.  Sure, you danced rings around Bambi but there will come a US President who’ll put your contemptible Russian ass in a sling.  Count on it.

    It’s not often I link to a NYT article, but this one is worth a read. I loved this part:

    I still believe our response to Assad’s poison gas attack should be “arm and shame,” as I wrote on Wednesday. But, please do spare me the lecture that America’s credibility is at stake here. Really? Sunnis and Shiites have been fighting since the 7th century over who is the rightful heir to the Prophet Muhammad’s spiritual and political leadership, and our credibility is on the line? Really? Their civilization has missed every big modern global trend — the religious Reformation, democratization, feminism and entrepreneurial and innovative capitalism — and our credibility is on the line? I don’t think so.

      I don’t think there has been any aspect of hypocrisy, dishonesty or cowardice missed in Obama and his minions over this Syrian misadventure. Its the emblem of all that is wrong, hateful and stupid on the left.

      And the tweet of the day from David Burge:

      Refreshing to see DC filled with bikers instead of overpromoted student council shi**weasels.

      …and our credibility is on the line? I don’t think so.

      That is excellent analysis – from the NYT no less. Who’d a thunk it?

      and our credibility is on the line? I don’t think so.

      That was kind of my reaction when Obama said that HIS credibility wasn’t on the line. That’s actually one of the more true things he’s said, seeing as how he doesn’t really have any credibility to begin with.

    I can’t stand to listen to Obama speak, but last night I was fixing dinner and my Lefty brother had to turn on the TV. I completely tuned out in the first minute he had it on, when Barry started to whine that the real problem is that people are still so upset by the last war.

    OMG—he is now blaming Bush for his spinelessness. “I would honor my word, but that big meanie Bush made it impossible..”

    Every time I think he can sink no lower, he fools me by finding another level of shamelessness. I am sure that in the next dictionary the word “craven” will be illustrated with a picture of Barry.

      I didn’t watch it, at all – but I did this morning see the quote where he essentially said that we SOB righties should back this because normally we like to kill people, anyways…and that the caring lefties should also back him because, unlike the righties, at least they’ll regret the deaths…

    From The Morning Jolt with Jim Geraghty:

    ….the winner of everything is Vladimir Putin. I mean, he’s Machiavelli. He’s absolutely, in a diabolical way, brilliant, suddenly, a man with no aircraft carrier group, no Nobel Prize, no big economy, no democracy, is the moral superior to the President. He’s posing as a man who stopped a rash and immature Obama from killing people and breaking stuff.”

    • M. Noonan September 11, 2013 / 2:17 pm

      I leave off declaring Putin a new Machiavelli…this was Godzilla vs Bambi.

    These are mere battles. This is nothing more than continuation of the Crusades. We (non-radicalized folks) have gone to sleep until 9/11/2011 and for the most part are still asleep. They haven’t.

    My personal belief, and I would return to the Marines to help, is that if our CiC (including future ones) makes the decision to resolve this issue-then make the case, have an end goal & exit strategy plus fully commit. It will be a world war.

    Otherwise, sit back and wait until it is within our house again. There is already no continent not affected & one has to look no further than Libya and Syria to understand our enemies now posses normally State level weapons including WMD.

    • M. Noonan September 12, 2013 / 12:39 am

      The good news is that a Marine regiment is worth a division of Muslims…but we’ll have to see if we’re up to Isreali standards…they were outnumbered 8 to 1 on the Golan for the first 24 hours of the Yom Kippur War and whacked the Syrians to heck and gone.

    Nice to see some people still have sense of homor.

    • M. Noonan September 12, 2013 / 12:40 am

      Saw that yesterday – and it is funny, but also a bit sad.

  6. neocon01 September 12, 2013 / 8:38 am

    the million mus-LOON march was a flop…..ROTFLMAO……..the surrender monkeys were a no show….

  7. Retired Spook September 12, 2013 / 10:25 am

    Wow — links to the NYT and WAPO in the same thread. That’s gotta be a first. Obama should stick to something he’s good at, like selling guns and ammo.

    Ya know, this is what you get when you lie repeatedly to the American people. Reminds me of the old parable of the boy who cried wolf.

  8. Retired Spook September 12, 2013 / 12:24 pm

    You do have to hand it to Obama, though. Bush could have never gotten away with abdicating the moral high ground and American foreign policy to the former head of the Soviet KGB.

    • M. Noonan September 12, 2013 / 1:29 pm

      Its a tour de farce, that is for sure…

    “Count on it.”

    Thanks for the confidence but I’m far too busy to smack Vlad the Embarrasser around.

    But, you said “there will come a president …” Seriously? Hillary Clinton will take Vlad-mo to the woodshed?

    Repeat after me; Dа Мастер!

  10. neocon01 September 13, 2013 / 11:40 am

    Hillary Clinton will take Vlad-mo to the woodshed?

    only if she brings monica and putans wife.
