A Pre 9/11 Mentality is Unacceptable - Terror is Still in the Skies

Yesterday we were given a reminder of why we cannot live in a pre 9/11 world. The dangers of terrorism exist in the world and we have to remain vigilant. A 23 year old Nigerian man got on plane to travel to the United States with the intent of blowing up the plane on American soil. His travels started in Lagos, Nigeria onto Amsterdam, then to Detroit. While it is not clear what materials he used in his attempt to blow up the plane, the reality remains that we are still in danger.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab apparently has ties in the United Kingdom and Yemen. The UK has very serious issues when it comes to Islamic extremism. London has been nicknamed Londonistan. This nickname has been deserved. The U.K. has more lax immigration than the U.S. does. Many immigrants come to the U.K. to take advantage of their version of our welfare system. There are several Imams that preach fiery anti-western speeches in the many mosques around London while collecting a monthly check from the very country that they are hell bent on destroying. If asked about the hypocrisy of this, they will just say that they qualify for it. London also has many dissidents from Middle Eastern countries that traveled to western nations due to arrests warrants in their home countries such as Saudi Arabia. They put in claims of fear of torture and death threats and will be allowed to stay. There is a radio program that is broadcasted out of London done by a man who is a proud and vocal follower of Usama bin Laden. He cheered the destruction of the twin towers on 9/11.

Sadly, there is a movement within portions of the British government that is using the same form of appeasement that they did during the 1930’s with Hitler. Incorporating Sharia law into British common law is one of the ways that this being done. While it may seem harmless on the surface to incorporate Sharia into child custody and divorce cases for the growing Muslim population within the country, it is not. When you immigrate to another country you need to become part of the culture of the country that you are now living in. I am not saying that you let go of your culture, but you need to become part of the country that you are living in. I am a product of this. While I was raised to be an American, I was also taught the Scandinavian traditions and culture. I carry those with me to this day. If you want to live under Sharia law, then stay in a country that follows it. There are plenty of them around the world.

Yemen is another country that has very real problems. It is an extremely poor country that has a very unstable government. It is not a country that westerners should travel to, as you may be kidnapped and held for ransom. It is a common occurrence. Yemen has beautiful antiquities that are draw for people that want to see these things for themselves. Yemen is the ancestral home of the bin Laden family, and one of his wives is a native. While the Yemenise government has made attempts at curbing international terrorism, it has not gone very well. The judicial system has not been great at jailing these people, and when they do there are breakouts from the prisons where sometimes up to 100 people will be freed at a time. Since these occur on pretty regular basis, it would make sense that some of the jail officials are in on it, or at the very least being paid off. It would not be hard for Yemen to become the next Afghanistan that harbors bin Laden, training camps, and the like.

At this point it is unclear how strong his ties to terrorism are. We have not been told if he attended any training camps or if he is a lone wolf that looked for people to help him with the explosives. Those questions may never be answered to the American public for security reasons. What is clear is that we cannot forget what happened on 9/11, al Qaeda has not. The desire to bring about economic collapse of the western world is still a main goal of bin Laden and his followers

Gateway Pundit just ran a story that there was a massive rally in Yemen a few days ago, declaring was on the USA. Funny (not) our media forgot to mention it.

The U.K. has become so accepting they are being ripped apart from within. I have heard of movements to stop the trend of Islamist laws being blended with British ones, but most are too PC to speak out. We cannot become like them!

I think that the current administration is walking around like it is September 10,2001.They sound like they are living in a pre-9-11 world instead of a post-9-11 world.It is like the Clinton Administration all over again,except I don't think Barack will be calling for air strikes against a country like Bill Clinton did to get the attention off his scandals.

Just a conservative girl said...

Micheal, as conservatives we made a big mistake saying that was why Clinton made those air strikes. I agree that may have been an added benefit, but those strikes were necessary. We should have done more then, maybe 9/11 wouldn't have happened had we.

Incorporating sharia law into any western governmental system makes no sense. In time, it's like allowing the nose of the camel into the tent. Before you know it the camel has taken over the tent.

I too am of Scandinavian descent (Norway, specifically), and if we incorporated my Viking ancestor's ways of doing business from 900 years ago into today's political system, disputes would be settled by planting a battle ax into the opposing view point holder's skull. Effective: yes. Civilized, hardly.

Modern day sharia law still calls for cutting off hands for minor discretions and looks the other way at honor killings and throwing battery acid in women's faces.

The UK is on life support, but just doesn't know it yet.

Have you not yet realized that almost everything reported by main stream is intended to twist your mind to further hate and seperate?

Have you checked up on the recent testimony re 'Xmas bomber'? Again, Like Fort Hood, a set up, planned to shape your thinking. Wake up and pull the plug your on cable TV. Your terrorists are much closer to home than what you think. Soap
