Them vs Us
The Peacenik pantywaists will perform in an Ames tonight.
...organizers are hoping the event will be instrumental in "making Ames a hotbed of peace."
..."Some people may still see us as unpatriotic..."
I agree with Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT)...
"There is something profoundly wrong when opposition to the war in Iraq seems to inspire greater passion than opposition to Islamist extremism."
To help people take constructive anti-war action, organizers will provide information and materials. Plans are afoot to ensure that the city offers year-around peace activities.
Bernard Lewis, age 90, has studied Islam and the Middle East for more than half a century.
The Muslims bring fervor and conviction to the struggle; we don't. The Muslims are self-assured in the rightness of their cause; we answer with self-denigration and self-debasement. Muslims prize loyalty and discipline; we prize politically correct multiculturalism.
...When the Soviet Union was defeated in Afghanistan, we read it as a victory for the West; Osama bin Laden saw it as a defeat of the more dangerous of the two superpowers. When the United States did not respond to terrorist attacks on its embassies, on the USS Cole and the first attempt to bring down the World Trade Center, he concluded that America was weak and unable to reply to its enemies.
Once again history repeats itself and these Peaceniks give aid and comfort to our enemies.
