Posted on 10/11/2004 7:57:49 AM PDT by conservativecorner
I wonder how many Americans were paying attention last week when new revelations were made about Islamic terrorist plans for America. Did you hear about those computer discs that were discovered with floor plans for some of America's schools? Now what, pray tell, would a cold-blooded Islamic murderer want with architectural plans for an American school?
Ever heard of Beslan? That's the town in Russia where Islamic terrorists most-probably associated with al Qaeda murdered over 200 Russian school children. They obtained plans for the school, entered the school, secured the escape routes, rigged the school with explosives, and held hundreds of children and their parents hostage for days. The, when the children tried to escape after explosives were detonated, the brave Islamic warriors started shooting little school children in the back. Now we learn that other Islamic terrorists have been collecting plans for American government schools.
Do you want to talk about terror? What type of terror do you think would sweep America if suicidal Islamic murderers invaded just one American school and killed 200 school children as they did in Beslan? The murders of the American school children would be preceded by a few days of a hostage standoff. The area around the school would be a sea of satellite trucks as television brought the hostage crisis to virtually every American living room. Petrified parents across the country would keep their children at home. Homeland security forces would negotiate while planning a raid to free the children. The Islamic terrorists would play the negotiating game while soaking up the worldwide publicity from the intense 24/7 television coverage. Then, as deadlines approached, the Islamic murderers would fulfill their suicidal designs. They would hit America in its softest spot ... it's children. Hundreds of American school children would die. Cameras from Arab television would bring to America scenes of militant Islamists celebrating and dancing in the streets of Egypt, Syria, Iran and the so-called Palestinian territories.
How long do you think it would take for Americans to begin sending their children back to government schools? Billions of dollars would be appropriated by the congress to create the ESA, the Education Security Agency. Our schools would become armed fortresses. The school day would be lengthened to allow time for the intense security screenings that would be required of every teacher, administrator, student, cafeteria worker and janitor. Life in America would undergo a change that would make long airport security lines almost pleasant by comparison.
This is the nature of the enemy we face. They shoot school children in the back. They had plans for American schools. Correction: They HAVE plans for American schools. Weapons of mass destruction? You don't think that was mass destruction you saw in Beslan last month? How can you draw comfort from the fact that Saddam Hussein, with his proven ties to al Qaeda, had temporarily halted his chemical, biological and nuclear weapons programs until he could manipulate the United Nations into removing sanctions? How can this make you feel one bit safer after witnessing the sight of hundreds of small black body bags guarded by the sobbing mothers and fathers of Beslan?
Three weeks from tomorrow you have a chance to send these Islamic murderers a message. You can tell them that Americans are resolute in their determination to find those who would kill us ... and who would kill our children .. and destroy them before they get the opportunity to carry out their deadly plans. Three weeks from tomorrow you can show them that there will be no global test. There will be no hasty withdrawal. There will be no appeasement. Our determination to protect our citizens and our children will not be dependent on the participation of France or Germany, or on the approval of a United Nations infested with corruption and the poison of anti-Americanism. You can send the message that the wishes of a majority of Europeans for a weakened America will not be realized.
Three weeks from tomorrow ... when you head to the polls ... think about those building plans for American schools on terrorist laptops. If, with those thoughts in mind, you can still bring yourself to vote for appeasement, for a weakened America, and for a pullback from the front on the war on terror --- if you can still bring yourself to vote for John Kerry, then you are a completely different type of American than I.
Such a nusiance those terrorists...
As usual, he nails it. Boortz is awesome.
Good article. However, God Forbid any such thing would happen, but if it did I imagine there would be an immediate outcry for the outlawing of Islam, the deportation of any and all Muslim foreign nationals, an immediate closure of the borders and a complete and total boycott of any and all Muslims across the United States. But maybe I'm wrong, because I'm surprised that a lot of this didn't already happen. And if you notice, our beloved "W" never, NEVER, says "Muslim Terrorists" or "Islamofactists" or any such thing. We could be fighting some bizarre insurgency by the Irish Republican Army and Bush wouldn't have to change his rhetoric at all.
Which is why I say Bush in '04, somebody meaner in '08.
The message of 9-11 was that devastation could come to us WITHOUT WMD, WITHOUT missiles to deliver them, and not only do the lefties in this country not grasp this message, they wish us to believe Saddam Hussein was oblivious to it also.
Good column, but recent news stories are saying the disks were not taken from terrorists. I don't know if that's true. Nevertheless, we should consider that, since this information was easily downloadable from the internet, someone somewhere might well have such plans. It's a nightmare I dread even considering.
(Boortz is right on as usual. Thanks for posting.)
This will get little coverage in the "Mainstream Newsmedia" (better known as the Democrat Propaganda Machine) because the so-called "journalists" do not want the American people to see the justification for the liberation of Iraq at a time when they want to present President Bush in as unfavorable a light as possible.
This is how these people manipulate the news.
The Left lunatic fringe has taken over the Democrat Party. Unless Sen. Kerry is defeated, the Left lunatic fringe will take over the United States.
The "Mainstream Newsmedia" is determined to elect Kerry.
The American people must resist their propaganda and the takeover of America that they are planning.
The stakes could not be higher.
I absolutely believe that. After all, there are many peaceful reasons why people in Iraq might have downloaded complete information on U.S. public schools including floor plans, security systems, first-responder plans, etc. I'm sure they just wanted ...
... Architectural examples. Yeah, yeah! That's the ticket. Architectural examples. Complete with security ideas so their own children would be protected. Yeah, yeah.
Oh, and the Iranians really do want nuclear fuel for energy ... right, right. They know their own oil would be a much cheaper form of energy for many years to come, but they really care about protecting their desert from pollution from oil. Right, yeah, that's the ticket.
I ain't so stupid, and I know W. ain't either.
"We are unaware of any information that indicates a specific terrorist plot toward any school in the United States," said Brian Roehrkasse, a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security."
"Federal officials said Friday there is no terrorist connection to a computer disk found in Iraq that contained information about schools in six states. The disk was made by an unidentified Iraqi man who was doing research and had no connections to al-Qaida or the Iraqi insurgents battling U.S. forces"Our schools would become armed fortresses.
If so, then it's just like having grandmothers from Iowa strip searched in airports: the price of multiculturalism. Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all Muslim terrorists are Muslim, and they all swim in the Western sea of multiculturalism, and not just in the Muslim end of the harbor. When the elite of a (former) nation decide that the stranger has as much right to and in the land as the natives little things like terrorism and police state counter terrorism are just part of the price for that belief. Grandmothers from Iowa being felt up at airports are a sign that the regime considers multiculturalism more important than terrorism or safety.
Slightly OT, Libertarianism is the place where white guys like Neal Boortz go to hide from the forces of cultural deconstruction. It's a fantasy world where they pretend the only thing that matters is that the immigrant is economically productive. In this fantasy world the people aren't real, aren't human. In the real world mass immigration has a profound social and political effect on society that goes beyond immediate economics, and one such (relatively trivial) effect is terrorism. In the real world many of the new arrivals seethe with hatred of the natives in their new homeland and many express that hatred with radical political votes, some express it with violent crime, and a tiny few express it with support for terrorism. This closing of the eyes to the consequences of multiculturalism, pretending that economics is the only important factor, is a fear response. In the unlikely event that Muslim terrorists wage a sustained terrorist campaign in the U.S. it will be in small part because Libertarians helped enable it.
BTW, this isn't the first time the U.S. has been confronted with the threat of suicidal foreign terrorists. The Anarchists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, almost all foreigners, were very similar in fanaticism to the Islamic terrorist of today. The eventual response to the wave of bombings, assassinations, riots, and robberies committed by this movement was the "Palmer raids", deportation, and the near ending of mass immigration. The present system is lukewarmly doing the first two, but there is no chance they will ever touch the last method.
Having said all that it should be emphasized that Muslim terrorism in the U.S. and West is still minuscule.
