Apparently the Pakistani and Patil terrorists didn't get the memo. Yes, the memo about Obama winning the election. Or perhaps they were unable to see the light that was to have shone down upon all the world?
As for this latest terrorist attack in Mumbai against Americans, I was under the mistaken impression that the election of president-elect Obama was supposed to change the view on Americans around the world and end terrorism against us? I guess the light of hope and change only works in US time zones?
According reports I heard, the Mumbai terrorists targeted Jews, Brits, and most of all…Americans. It is as I have always believed, that Islamo-terrorist believe in Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere may be happy. Who wants happiness, when you can have an oppressive theocracy?
In urging other terrorists to remain firm and resolute, Ayman al-Zawahiri of "House Negro" fame said, "Your enemy's stagger has begun, so don't stop hitting him." It appears that the Mumbai terrorists may have heeded his advice.
The attack in Mumbai got me thinking about the level of planning that it took to pull this off. The terrorists attacked multiple sites, and carefully selecting places where all the intended victims would be. Thoughtfully planned and well orchestrated, reminiscent of 9/11. But if you want to attack Americans, why not come to the source…America? Hmmm…
I am often asked by Liberals, "What has George Bush done for America...Would you like fries with that?" Over the past few days, they got their answer. "What did Bush do in the War on Terror?", is what I will answer now, but I will cover more on the Bush legacy at a later date.
First, Bush followed the money. He put economic pressure on terrorists and those sponsoring terrorism, by freezing their assets...and threatening other body parts as well!
Freezing the assets was a bold move, and not anticipated by the terrorists or their consorts. This move sent a shockwave throughout the terrorist community, since (1) they were now broke, and (2) their sympathizers had to cut them off, lest lose America as a market, or worse yet feel the wrath of a pissed off America. You do recall that day when Liberals actually were patriotic? Ah, the good old "day"!
Next, Bush established the Office of Homeland Security. Why? Because the various law enforcement agencies were not talking to each other, which is why the attacked was not thwarted to begin with. This combined agency has dogged terrorist all over the world, and has them hiding in mountains, saying "Can you hear me now?" These cockroaches won't come out in the light of day, because the military has predator drones waiting on them to send missiles to "hit 'em, where the good Lord split up".
The obvious outcome of terrorists with no money or friends, being chased by a combined and focused worldwide law enforcement community? No attacks on American soil.
To think that an attack like this would not occur on Americans because Obama is president-elect is naïve. To think it will stop is even more naïve. On the one hand you have terrorists hell-bent on destroying the infidels, i.e. us. And as I like to say to Liberals, "on the other hand, you have…different fingers". The terrorists don't care who is in the White House, as their beliefs are truly color-blind.
The election of Obama may have given the naïve of the world a new "rock star", however the terrorists remain unimpressed. Obama's own Muslim people have abandoned him, and are in fact taunting him, as al-Zawahiri did but a few days ago.
But no Mumbai-like incident has happened in America since 9/11. And we have George W Bush to thank for this. Now the next question is, "What will happen on Obama's watch?" Truly a scary thought.
That's my rant!
