Some 9/11 Thoughts from an Airport

As I sit in Chicago's O'Hare airport waiting on a flight to Atlanta this morning, I am struck by an enormous sense of sadness for many reasons. Bear with me and I will explain my thoughts on this sixth anniversary of the largest mass murder of American citizens.

  • Sadness at the loss of life in this country and around the world since the attacks
  • Sadness at the seemingly everydayness at which 9/11 has become for some
  • Sadness at the revisionist history being fed to our children by leftist politicians and public schools
  • Sadness that the New York Times has the balls to ask how much tribute is enough, did they ask that question 6 years after Pearl Harbor and just 2 years after the end of World War II?
  • Sadness that people still do not understand what it is that we are fighting for. There is no reasoning with a people that are completely committed to a doctrine that calls for the death of all non-believers
  • Sadness that sooner then later, there will be another attack on this country because we as a nation have not held our leader responsible for the security of this country
Let me know what you think about the state of this nation and how damn short a national memory and attention span we have.

Never forget what happen on this day........

You said it, Mad Tech. I personally wouldn't oppose the idea of not-so-precise bombs raining down on Syria, Iran, and Pakistan... Radical Islam won't change until we make the price of being radical so high that it's not worth it...
