|Motto of the United States Marine Corps|
What happened yesterday to four Marines in a Marine recruiting facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee was an Act of Jihad against four American Military Personnel that could have been avoided.
This was an active combat situation in which an Islamist Jihadist easily sauntered into a Marine recruiting office, weapon in hand, and with no problem savagely murdered four highly trained U.S. Marines who had no way of defending themselves.
Maybe it was the sign on the door, "Gun Free Zone" that gave them away.
Let's be clear about one thing, this entire country is now in an active combat situation and we should all be acting, accordingly.
It is time all our military personnel be armed, 24/7, in order to protect themselves and their families.
Intelligence did a background check on the father of Muhammed but he was dropped from the list.
His son, Muhammed, wasn't on any Terror Watch List, as far as we know even though he was foreign born.
No amount of whitewashing or Political Correctness from media pundits, the President or politicians is going to change the fact that another Act of Terrorism just occurred in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
How many more of these "acts of terrorism", how many more Americans have to be killed, before the President of the United States admits that his refusal to acknowledge Muslim Extremism in America is actually contributing to these acts of terror?"
No amount of parsing words and couching (meaning: to word in a certain manner) no amount of turning one's head at another ugly act is going to change the fact that a Muslim Extremist just walked in, off the street, took aim at four American Marines and murdered them, in cold blood.
And the really gut wrenching, sad part of this inexcusable tragedy is that these four Marines could have taken this guy out, hands down, if they had been armed.
Question: Why is it that the DOD continues with its policy of "Gun Free" zones with regard to our military personnel?
Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani stated, "The White House IS NOT a gun free zone. The Capital IS NOT a gun free zone, The Supreme Court IS NOT a gun free zone".
Is it that a politicians life is more important than a military life?
Have we not learned the lesson from the tragedy at Ft. Hood?
It is insidious what we are now seeing happening in America.
It is more insidious that we have a President of the United States who refuses to acknowledge the obvious (that Jihad is here in America) and God only knows for what reason.
How much more senseless tragedies do we need to endure before our politicians get some backbone?
And, we have heard nothing from the moderate Muslim community in reaction to this tragic event.
It is another case of thunderous Muslim silence.
When we have a President of the United States who is eager to give the finger to law enforcement and turns his back on our military by denying them their basic rights, when we have a President of the United States who refuses to acknowledge that Islamic Terrorism is alive and well in the United States, then he is major contributing factor to the problem.
These Marines were faithful to their oath but what oath is President Obama faithful to?
Food for thought.....
