FROM MANY, ONE: Sage wisdom from those who led this nation to independence and greatness.
The leftists say that the war on terror is being fought ineffectively. That could be so. It is difficult to wage a war when the nation is divided by opportunists, anti-American “activists”, Hollywood morons, academic “intellectuals”, socialist Senators and Representatives, and by the elite, leftist media. That was proven during the war in Vietnam. During that war, lack of unity gave aid and comfort to our enemy, prevented us from fighting the war to win, and ended in the loss of hundreds of thousands of American, Vietnamese, Laotian, and Cambodian lives.
The internal enemies of America equated isolated acts of military misconduct at Abu Ghraib prison with the Holocaust and with the mass murders committed by Stalin and Saddam Hussein. Together, Hitler, Stalin, and Hussein killed millions of innocent people. There is NO moral equivalence. Even before there was an investigation, America’s leftist enemies condemned a Marine for killing an enemy who was part of a terrorist network of Muslims that had just killed Margaret Hassan, a woman who has spent her life helping the people of Iraq. Leftists who prevent Americans from exercising their right to express their religious beliefs condemned our military for attacking mosques being used by the enemy as heavily armed hideouts.
If America does not unite against our most evil enemy yet and put national survival ahead of political opportunity, we will lose all that has been gained during the past 235 years. President Bush reached out to Democrats throughout his eight years in office. Yet, the response form the left remained the same: divisive and self-righteous. They called him ignorant. Interestingly, President Obama carried on with many of President Bush’s policies. He had to, because once he came into office and learned about the real world, he saw the logic. The sad part is that he never apologized for his own ignorance.
During this time when politics and ideology seem more important to the left than success in our war against terror, I am reminded of the words of Rudy Giuliani (May 19, 2004):
“Our enemy is not each other but the terrorists who attacked us.”
The majority of Americans understand the consequences of not fighting islamic-fascism. Now is the time for the leftist ideologues to take Rudy Giuliani’s advice and to join the united front that will defeat our enemy. From many, one. We need to be one, together, NOW.
