Seven years on

On October 12, 2000, the USS Cole was bombed by Islamic terrorists in what was only one of a long stream of terrorist attacks that have been carried out against American military personnel.  When the War on Terror began, I remember thinking that it was about damned time someone stood up to these murderous 7th century savages.  Finally.

Here we are today, some seven years later, and the much-hyped War on Terror has become anything but.  President Ken Doll Bush is more concerned with fellating Mexico’s president than he is with maintaining national security.  Having failed to learn the lesson of Vietnam, we are making the same mistakes that cost us that war so long ago.  That lesson is as simple as it is true: you don’t win a war by being the nice guy; you win a war by making the enemy wish he never pissed you off in the first place.

There is only one kind of effective warfare, and that is Total War.  General George Patton understood this, which is why his enemies feared him.  The Islamists of today also understand this, but somehow in the years between WWII and today, America, along with the rest of the so-called civilized world, has forgotten this fundamental truth.  As a result of President Ken Doll Bush’s spinelessness and the Democratic Congress doing everything they can to provide moral support for a murderous ideology, we may end up facing the same disgrace we faced when we withdrew from Vietnam.
