Islamic Prelude Ignored

There has been Islamic Terror in the world for centuries.

In recent years Muslim terrorists have ramped up their push toward worldwide Islamic domination. They attack our weaknesses with their brutal and medieval way of war. The result is not one nation against another,  but one TERRORIST [with no regard for human life] against every INFIDEL. Tracking their most recent acts of terrorism clearly justifies  our war in Afghanistan and our pre-emptive strike against Iraq. We must not forget the events that have led to WORLD WAR IV.

Unfortunately, it was the US that largely carried out the Pan Am 103 bombing just giving the Iranians a small walk on part.

I am unclear on your definition of a weak response. Reagan bombed Ghadafi's house and killed one of his kids which did have a decent impact on getting him off the world stage as a promoter of terrorism. And W. invaded Afghanistan with the CIA and 300 Special Forces operators and overthrew the Taliban within a couple of months of 9/11. Something that British or the Soviets had been unable to do in years of trying.

charles . . I'm not sure I understand your comment. One string of events starts with the bombing of a Berlin nightclub and Reagan's retaliation bombing of Tripoli and Bengazi in 1986. Then our guys mistakenly (?) shot down an Iranian jet killing the 290 passengers.Somehow these events might be linked to the Pan Am 103 Loclerbie bombing that killed 259 passengers. I don't think anyone ever proved who did it.

Maybe Libya? Maybe Iran? Maybe Kilroy?

And Ingineer66 . . as usual you are right. I will edit the comment accordingly. Thank you.

They had something to do with destroying PanAm 103? WHODATHUNKIT?!!
I TRULY learn something every day while readin' these here bloggin' things!

How slow-learners can look at this list and still argue we are not at war with these misogynistic bastards is beyond me.

Still, some argue just that.
I think more remedial training is needed Dixon, and I think you're just the guy to do it!

I know a solution. Instead of giving Arab men between the ages of 16 and 35 the rubber glove treatment before we let them on a plane or into the country lets harass old women about their knitting needles or young mothers about bottles with breast milk in them. I am certain that will keep America safe from radical Muslims. ;-)

We all know that there are serious problems with ou American political system. The federal government and national media have been telling us that we continue to lead the world in just about everything. Unfortunately, we do not. Measuring our status against other nations is difficult as it entails comparison of different attributes and characteristics. Comparisons are, at best, crude.  Surely, if we look, it's clear that America is no longer dominant among the world's communities. 

For decades following the 1929 economic depression, America has enriched foreign industries at the expense of our own. We have subsidized foreign military powers while allowing the depletion of our own. We've defended other nations borders while, at the same time, not defended our own. We've spent trillions of dollars to subsidize unworthy governments, and let our own infrastructure to fall into disrepair. 

The use of our economic power as a diplomatic tool may have been the correct thing to d…

Cruel and Thoughtless . . .

A disheartening situation has hit our family. A cousin, one that we don't know very well, has reached 93 years of age. Most of the Chapman family made it to the mid 80's, but Mary Lou Chapman has managed a few years more. And, she's not gone yet. Mary was unmarried her entire life. She grew up in a good home, was well educated, has always hd a good job, and has enjoyed pretty good health - until just a few years ago. While she is still very much alive, I sometimes speak in the past tense as if she had already died. Mary is either confused or in her own little world now. She began losing some of her sparkle a few years ago. At first it was mild memory loss, and then mild hearing loss, and then drifting in her speech as she lost track of what she wanted to say. Her Doctor said it was a mild dementia coming on with old age, and nothing to worry about yet. A few month's passed by before she began to have problems driving herself to the market and appointments and so forth,…

The Reluctant Liberal

I've a grandson that has been exposed to political liberalism all his life. In it's modern version the words "left wing" means the liberal side of politics, and "right wing" describes the more conservative side. In our two party system each term may be used to describe a member of either party. Believe it or not, there are a few conservative Democrats.
Today, the Democratic Party has become  overwhelmingly "liberal" and the Republican Party more conservative.  At times it has been difficult to find enough reasonable cooperation between parties and that is, unfortunately, how it is today. With President Trump now in the saddle, the Democratic Party has refused any level of cooperation -  and our government has slowed to a walk.

The simple explanation is probably the correct one. The hard left wing, usually members of the Democratic Party, allows no other point of view. They each consider moderate and conservative opposing ideas to have no merit. This…
