Sept 11 2012


 
 
Today I was reminded of the horror and sacrifice of this day. My generations day of infamy. As Americans we owe no one an "apology" on this day of all days. Least of all anyone attacking a
US Embassy for whatever their "reasons?"

  1. My sympathies with all our American friends.

    I don't understand the US Embassy attack at all. If it wasn't for NATO the Libyans would still be under Gadaffi. Someone puts a B movie on You Tube and the fundamentalists immediately blame the US. For what? The US Government didn't sanction it or have anything to do with it!

    I wonder how the Islamic world feel if the 'West' bombed an Arabic town each time an anti-western sentiment was made?

    1. Thanks for your comments - I posted late Tuesday evening after the American Embassy was stormed in Cairo Egypt before the details emerged about the other 9-11 attack on our Consulate in Libya. I was disappointed in the failure of our government and US media to strongly condemn the Cairo attack in the strongest possible terms. Shades of 1979 all over again. As I have spoken out in other places and ways, I am often puzzled at the attempts by some to equivocate Islam as a peaceful religion when it seems violence erupts in corners of the Islamic world at the drop of a hat or women are oppressed by Islamic regimes such as the taliban and others.

  2. As shown by todays News more violence is spreading as Egyptian police have finally movedin to defend our Embassy, while elsewhere in the Middle East more "orchestrated" protests erupt.

  3. WW2 bombing casualties and destruction for Germany lasted for two months until the Allies ran out of targets - You would think that those in "other" countries would hesitate from attacking us. Apparently the lessons of past wars elude both our leadership and our enemies.
