Let's Roll

Ten years ago today, Islamic zealots carried out the commandments of their twisted faith and murdered thousands of Americans.

Historically, this was not a unique or even an unusual act. Only the tactics were new. Islamic armies have carried out far worse massacres (check out how the Hindu Kush came to be named sometime) in support of their barbaric faith, which has been in a constant state of war around its fringes and with the societies and cultures they brush up against for almost 1,400 years.

Liberal apologists cravenly insist that all cultures and religions are equivalent... which is convenient for them, since they disdain all religions that don't have Che, Marx, or Al Gore as a prophet.

Mark Steyn and Mike Vanderboegh say it differently, but they each get to the truth that far too few want to address.

The terror attacks on 9/11 were our wake up call, first answered by the passengers of Flight 93. Their cockpit charge foiled the second attack on Washington, DC.

I mourn. I sometimes cry.

But I do not forgive, I will not whitewash, and I will not forget that as much as its apologists want to pretend otherwise, it was Islam that was the genesis for the wars we find ourselves in, Islam that is the root of so much barbarity in this world, and Islam that we must defeat.

It was followers of Islam, following the teachings of their prophet and their mullahs and their culture, that were responsible for the nearly three thousand deaths 10 years ago today, just some of the tens of millions caused by followers of a religion whose name demands "Submission."

As some Marines in this post 9/11 world are reported to have said, "forgiveness is God's job; ours is to arrange the meeting."

Let's roll.
