President Obama decided to give a speech in response to the Ft. Hood incident--not taking action, but give a speech. Through this speech, Obama takes occasion to bash America and not to refer to this attack as a terrorist attack. We know Nidal Hasan (shooter) was operating under the authority of his religion. Hasan was a jihadist and he performed what he set out to do. Captain Planet Obama stands up and says, "No faith justifies these murderous and craven acts." What?! The bombing of the WTC, both times; the bombing of the USS Cole, etc. have been carried out by Muslim terrorists acting under the authority of their faith. And, on Veterans Day, Obama glazes over this for one simple reason. Democrats having been promising for years that if they were in power, we would be free from the threat of terrorism. So, when terrorism happens, they have to classify it as something else and totally ignore reality. Obama can't have any terrorism happen on his watch. Terrorism only happens when evil Conservatives are running the show - that's when the terrorists are mad at us. Do you honestly think we will be safer with this guy in power? If danger struck, would you want an armed soldier by your side or mall security?! Never fear, Mall Security Obama is ready to look the other way.
But, what do we know about Nidal Hasan? We know that Hasan was an army psychiatrist. There is also strong evidence to support him being on a task force instituted by the Department of Homeland Security.(http://www.gwumc.edu/hspi/old/PTTF_
(pg. 29) So, the Department of Homeland Security was utilizing a terrorist?! I'm feeling safer by the minute! According to gawk.com, there was a post discovered by a Nidal Hasan in which this Hasan compared the suicide missions of Muslims to the "suicide" American soldiers choose by jumping on a grenade to save their fellow soldiers. He said, "Scholars have paralleled this to suicide bombers whose intention, by sacrificing their lives, is to help save Muslims by killing enemy soldiers. If one suicide bomber can kill 100 enemy soldiers because they were caught off guard that would be considered a strategic victory." Now, the AP hasn't come out and verified this is the same Nidal Hasan, but certainly the viewpoint of this Hasan was shared by the Ft. Hood Hasan; who I'm sure would consider what he did a strategic victory.
Now, do you see why it is important that we have the right to bear arms?! Who knows where the next terrorist will pop up. But, thanks to our gun laws, we'll be left, not holding the bill, but somebody part that gets blown off.
