9/11...Six Years Out

And so its 9/11. Six years ago today, hijacked airliners slammed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a farmers field in Pennsylvania, with Islamic terrorists armed with box cutters inside shouting Allahu Akbar!

Six years ago today, our whole world seemed to come tumbling down with the World Trade Center buildings.

But today, where are we at?

* We have Democrat candidates for president who think that our fight against worldwide Islamic jihad is a bumper sticker slogan, and that jihad is really all our fault.
* There are anti-war groups who argue that America is the bad guy always was, always will be even though they have nothing to fear by voicing their displeasure with our government.
* We have a leftwing press that spins the news from Iraq and Afghanistan so that the worst possible side comes out, therefore encouraging an attention-span-challenged public to clamor for a precipitate pullout.
* We have so-called leaders in Congress taking it upon themselves to trash the reputation of the four-star general in charge of operations in Iraq.
* Some of those congressional leaders (who are elected to legislate) have also taken it upon themselves to visit with leaders of countries that our president (who is elected to take charge of foreign policy and diplomacy) has decreed off-limits.
* Our borders are far from secureif the country was a boat, shed sink faster than the Titanic. Desperate for votes, politicians from both parties are willing to turn a blind eye to those who violate our nations immigration lawsand not all of them are simply here for a job washing dishes or mowing lawns. There are such violators who would use these lapses against usthe 9/11 hijackers did just that.

This is where we are at, six years later. Obviously we havent learned much, other than many people are so desperate for a return to comfort and normalcy or win elections that they are willing to ignore these very serious issues.

But you shouldnt. You dont have to attend a memorial service but you should never forget what happened on that day. Keep the lessons from 9/11 close at handfor if we, as a nation, allow ourselves to forget, well have a new tragedy to deal with. Our enemy never rests, and neither should we.

(Over at Family Security Matters, there are other thoughts on the lessons of 9/11. Check them out.)

UPDATE: One of my best friends was working in midtown Manhattan on that day, and saw the events unfold from her office window. She still works there, and has posted her recollections of that day. Be sure to read it.

And here I am, waiting for the nameservers to update so I can blog on my new hosting provider.

Doesn't look like it's going to happen today. Time to go hang the new flag.

Thanks for this great post - and yes... we haven't learned much.
At least our politicians haven't learned much.

I have been listening to the raping of Petreaus by the Dems on Rush and Dennis Prager. It is weven worse than the shelling the general received yesterday. Personally, I think Joe Biden, Barbara Boxer, and Barack OSAMA should be hung for treason.

Couldn't access your blog yesterday, for some strange reason. So I'm just now getting to read your post a day late. Great one, though, and I linked ya.
