WHY DO WE FORGET?

Eric Holder has forgotten.

President BO has forgotten.

Many members of congress have forgotten.

Either that, or they don't care if it happens again.

President BO and Eric Holder have extend the rights of citizenship to our enemy combatants by affording them the luxury of a civil trial in New York instead of a military trial in Guantanamo.

They see the world through rose colored glasses and somehow think their idea of "being nice" will make the world a safer place.

The events leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor, diplomatically, gave little indication that such a malicious event was being planned.

The "dots" were not connected because they were so dispersed that one could not see the pattern.

It was a similar situation with 9/11.

There were dots, to be sure.

They had been gathering for years.

Both the Clinton and Bush administrations missed them.

The Clinton administration missed more of them than the Bush administration, simply because most of the dots developed during Clinton's time in office.

And now more dots are being developed.

These dots are more insidious than the dots before 9/11 or Pearl Harbor.

These dots are about jihad, it is true, but about much more.

These dots have to do with the abdication of our American legal system, who is afforded what rights and why, and whether we continue as a sovereign nation.

Sovereignty is not a word most liberals understand or appreciate.

They believe that we are all living in the same world, therefore should be governed by some world governing organization.

They are willing to eschew liberty and freedom in order to achieve this world government.

Frankly, I don't want to be brought down to a "level playing field" where despotic countries' political systems are integrated into ours.

I don't want to be like, say, Italy, where "justice" is handed out, not on the basis of evidence, but on national relationships.

You may talk about "greed" (when you really mean aspiration to success) all you want, but this country is far, far better morally, spiritually, economically and socially than any other country that ever has been, is now or ever will be.

We don't need to be like France, or England, or Spain, or Germany, or China, or Romania or any other country.

They, in fact, want to be more like us, hence the growth of Americanization in these lands.

But there are those who are either so envious of our success or so barbaric in their religious fervor that they would like nothing better than to destroy our country and move toward ruling the world.

That was Japan's goal leading up to Pearl Harbor, and that was the goal of the hijackers on 9/11.

Have we not learned from history that we must be ever diligent in protecting the freedoms that our founders and fore-fathers shed their blood to achieve?

Have we not learned that the basic nature of mankind is not peace and love, but is hatred and war?

Do we think we can just go on making dumb decisions that reverse the strides made in the name of a republican form of government, which has served us so well these 230+ years?

Why do we forget?

Great points

But there are those who are either so envious of our success or so barbaric in their religious fervor that they would like nothing better than to destroy our country and move toward ruling the world.

You know I never thought of this. Of course there is no question that Islam has its sights on implementing Sharia law on the world, but there seems to be a secular opposing force seeking world domination through trickery.

Have we not learned that the basic nature of mankind is not peace and love, but is hatred and war?

I personally think that this is key. The churches seem to have forgotten this one, how can we expect the world to embrace it?
