Yes, Jay, there are many people with diverse agendas that want us to forget what happened on 9/11 and those who did this to us but we never will.

As much as it grates on the inteligencia here I wanted to repost another article by Charlie Daniels:

Nine Eleven

As I write this piece it is Sunday morning and tomorrow, Monday is the fifth
anniversary of the morning that changed the world forever.

Do you remember where you were and what you were doing when you first heard the news? I do.

Do you remember how you felt as it slowly came to light that this horrible
and wanton attack on mankind had been done on purpose by people who
professed to be serving a religious cause?

Do you remember the confusion and uncertainty as plane after plane crashed causing incredible loss of innocent life, not knowing how many planes had been commandeered and how many attacks there would be.

It was a frustrating and helpless feeling, the uncertainty, the anger and
wanting to strike out at somebody and not knowing who.

My point in writing this piece at this time is that I hope it will help us
to remember the hurt America experienced on that day. That we never forget the degree of evil these people are capable of.

These are people who can coldly cut the throat of an airline stewardess with
a box cutter, who can crash a planeload of innocent people into a skyscraper full of other innocent people. They deprive children of their parents, husbands of their wives, interrupt the lineage of countless generations and all in the name of their religion.

What kind of religion condones this kind of behavior? What kind of god
sanctifies suicide, mass murder and hate? What kind of religion mandates the killing of everybody on earth who doesn't share its beliefs?


What are we fighting? The answer is we are fighting fanaticism,
hatred, total intolerance, genicide and pure evil. We fight an enemy who is
devious and intelligent, an enemy who uses the very freedoms we treasure
against us, who capitalize on the naivety of well meaning Americans.

There are those in America, on this forum for that matter, who tend to think these people are like everybody else, that if we'd just be nice to them and leave them alone they'd go peacefully away.

No folks, these people are not like other people you know.
Do you know
anybody who would strap explosives on their bodies and walk into a shopping mall?

Do you know anybody who would take a knife and cut someone's head off and do it on television so that person's family always have a grisly reminder of how their loved one died?

Do you know anybody who would drive a truckload of dynamite into a public
building?

Do you know anybody who would put a bomb on a train and murder people whose faces they've never even seen?

If you have any doubt what kind of monsters we're dealing with just get out
some file footage of the planes flying into the trade towers.

Never forget, never forget.

Pray for our troops.

What do you think?

God Bless America

We have to figure out a way to prevail in Iraq.

Whatever one's objections may have been to going in in the first place cutting and running is not a viable solution. We need to have more patience. This is going to be a long struggle (that blood, sweat and tears thing, you know)
