We are Fighting a Religious Holy War Even If We are No Longer A Religious Country

Despite the fact that Secretary” Incompetano”refuses to use the words, “war on terror”, and instaed refers to the fight we are in as a criminal civil action. We are and have been for nine years a war with radical Muslim terrorists!

The people we fight have a religious perversion that they must convert all peoples to their brand of religion or kill them!

Not all Muslims feel this way, but millions do! This should be the number one priority of our Federal Government, but instead we have a Congress and a President that wants to socialize and control our lives. They do this with bribes, pressure and lies!
Think back 60 years ago and you we realize how far this country has come down from the ability to not only keep us safe here at home, but save the world from Fascism and Communism!

World War II was fought for an identifiable cause. To defeat the tyranny of the Japanese Empire and the Nazi regime that Hitler began.

Korea and Vietnam were fought to stop the spread of Communism in the Far East, and when we fought these wars the Country’s attitude toward war had been radically changed by the liberal press and the University intelligencia.

During these wars the public became more aware of the results of waging war, such as collateral damage and the number of Americans killed in battle. Of course death is a consequence of fighting a war, but the Country must have the will to accept casualties on both sides if they expect our forces to win the war.Political Correctness and “rules of engagement” won’t win the war!

One axiom, however, can be applied equally to all our past wars up until recently; war means fighting and fighting means killing. Or, as Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman once unapologetic said, “If the people raise a great howl against my barbarity and cruelty, I will answer that war is war, and not popularity seeking.”

Americans, like other warriors of days past, rarely felt squeamish about killing the enemy, even when they were other Americans — whether they be “native” or Southern.For the most part, our ancestors knew that war was a hard business and fought it that way. Theirs was a war of the head. A war where one and all accepted the dreaded but necessary fact that people would die, even if some of those people never raised a hand in anger.Thus we developed the phrase: “collateral damage”.

If Eisenhower had worried about people dying he would never have invaded Europe, and never would have ordered the “fire bombing” of Dresden, Hamburg and Berlin. His orders and objective was to win the war!

The loss of life when American Marines took Iwo Jima was over 7,000 Marines and 20,000 Japanese. The planners of this 37 day battle knew there was going to be a huge loss of life, but to spare the hundreds of thousands of soldiers and Marines who would have been killed in an invasion of Japan made it worth while.

Today we have a “hangover” of the attitude developed by the liberal press and peacenicks that wining is not the important objective. Saving lives is always important, but it should not dictate how our troops fight, and whether we win or put out tail between our legs and withdraw.

This Country has found a way to move away from the religious purpose of our Founding Fathers, and has reduced almost all vestiges of religion from public life. Despite this we are in a religious war whether we recognize it or not.

The Islamic radicals that are daily waging war against us “infidels” are doing so for the sole purpose of destroying “The Great Satan” and establishing a worldwide “caliphate” where Sharia law rules.

For those who refuse to believe this is a religious war I say to them if not then why are the leaders, like Osama bin Laden, calling upon the religious fervor of all the suicide bombers?

Unless Americans wake up and accept the fact that we are in a struggle to the death with religious fanatics we will certainly lose this war as we did Vietnam. Do we make war to win?
C.S. Lewis made an appropriate statement that I will quote with thanks to “The New Media Journal”.

“In the [Leftist] society the number of pacifists will either be large enough to cripple the state as a belligerent, or not,” Lewis warned, “If it is large enough, then you have handed over the state which does tolerate pacifists to its totalitarian neighbor who does not. Pacifism of this kind is taking the straight road to a world in which there will be no pacifists.”
