Preparations Underway for Terrorist Attack on the U.S.

Danger Signals and the Presidential Election

Is anybody watching the signs coming out of the Middle East? The attack on the U. S. Embassy in Yemen is a warning. The waterborne strike against the USS Cole was a sign of what was to come on September 11, 2001. That particular attack took place weeks before the presidential election of 2000. Simply stated, the terrorists were flexing their muscles and displaying their bravado, telling America they had no fear of its might. They merely laughed off threats of retaliation from the United States, and went about their business preparing for their offensive of 9/11. Now, only weeks away from this year's presidential election, terrorists have once again signaled their intent. But is anybody paying attention?

America should have no doubts that, at this very moment, terrorists in the Middle East and those already planted here in this country, are preparing to kill and mutilate our men, women and children. And, they will do so without mercy. I truly hope that no citizen of this nation is foolish enough to believe that there are no terrorist cells here on U. S. soil. They are here, and we have allowed them to enter our country along with thousands of other illegal aliens. But, let's not forget that we've also opened our borders to terrorists and welcomed them on to our soil with open arms. They are here in the guise of students and members of our work force. They walk freely among us every day, waiting for their orders to kill, and when those orders come, they will do so eagerly. They will butcher innocent men, women and children in the name of Allah, just as they did on 9/11.

Suddenly, Pakistan, a supposed U. S. ally, threatened to fire on American Troops and aircraft if they crossed their border in pursuit of terrorists. Now they have exchanged gunfire with U. S. Troops near their border. Indeed, a little more food for thought-how many Americans have been trained in Pakistan in recent months, and have since returned here to commit terrorist acts against us? If you think this is a far-fetched notion, you need only look to the United Kingdom and the terrorist attacks of 2005. Those involved in the attacks were trained in Pakistan.

I have always been of the opinion that the Pakistani Government, or at least certain members, including military leaders, was in alliance with many of the terrorist groups. They have been living the best of both worlds, being paid generous amounts of money in the form of aid from the United States because they are an "ally" and taking payoffs from terror cells while allowing them to live and train in Pakistan. And, weeks before the election they are openly defying America. Maybe they are anticipating an outcome in the upcoming presidential election that is favorable to them, and the terror organizations they support. Still, I wonder is anybody listening?

As an American citizen and voter, I'm still trying to understand just who Barack Hussein Obama really is. Is he in any way affiliated with the Muslim faith? Was he not educated in a Muslim school as a boy in Indonesia? His father and stepfather are Muslim, are they not? Does he quietly support Muslim groups that have vowed to destroy our nation? He is indeed a smooth talker who always seems to wow his audiences. Yet, I'm still skeptical about what he really stands for. Denials have flown far and wide, disavowing any connection whatsoever by Mr. Obama to Islam. He has repeatedly said that he is Christian, not Muslim.

Yet, under Muslim law, the son of a Muslim father is a Muslim. A Muslim who converts to Christianity has violated the law in every Muslim country, an offense punishable by death in some of those countries. Mr. Obama has gone so far as to say that his name is not Muslim. Does that mean that Saddam Hussein was Swedish, and Osama Bin Laden is Irish Catholic and in line to succeed the Pope?

He also spent 20 years attending a church where Reverend Jeremiah Wright spouted anti-American rhetoric and racial hatred. Yet, he claims he never heard any of these things while attending services. Is he deaf, or was his hearing mystically filtered to block such speech? While being interviewed by George Stephanopoulos, Mr. Obama said, "John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith." Stephanopoulos interjected, "you mean your Christian faith, don't you?" to which Obama replied, "Yes, my Christian faith."

I may not have the exact wording from the interview, but I believe it's close enough. Close enough to understand that in police jargon, Barack Obama gave, before God and the rest of the world, what is commonly known as a spontaneous admission. This was not a slip of the tongue. If he is not, nor ever was a member of the Muslim faith, why would he make such a statement? I don't believe for a moment that his words were a slip of the tongue, or mistake. Those words should raise a flag of suspicion in the minds of every American voter.

Certainly, any street-wise cop knows that instinctive exclamations hold the truth. Yet, I find it very strange that this confession of the soul has vanished from our main stream media. Like it or not, believe it or not, Barack Obama confessed to being Muslim. He announced in a public forum to his Muslim faith and it's immediately forgotten. Why?

Is it because there are factions in this country that will do anything to get a Black elected president? Anything, including jeopardizing the safety and well being of the American people to have a Black President? I have no problem with a Black man or woman being president of this country, but let's elect a Black man or woman who is qualified. If Colin Powell, Condeleezza Rice, Harold Ford, or Michael Steele were running for the office, I'd be comfortable voting for them.

Unfortunately, none of those mentioned is running for President of the United States, and that's our loss. In fact, we have already had five men of Black ancestry hold the office of President of the United States of America. They are Thomas Jefferson, Calvin Coolidge, Andrew Jackson, Warren Harding and Abraham Lincoln. However, putting the United States in the hands of Barack Obama, would be the equivalent of having Michael Vick's Pit Bulls baby sit your children.

But, for those who still doubt, heed these words from the Book of Revelations: "The Anti-Christ will be a man, in his 40s, of Muslim descent, who will deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE CHRIST-LIKE APPEAL...the prophecy says the people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, he will destroy everything."

I'm not campaigning for public office, and I have no desire to ever become a candidate for any office. I'm a part of everyday America, speaking for myself and those Americans like me, regardless of skin color, political alliance, or religious beliefs. I'm sure there are many who share my views, and those who oppose them. Opposition to my feelings and points of view will not offend me. But, expect no apology from me if those same views offend you. Get over it.

I have a bad attitude about the state of affairs in my country, and I'm not politically correct. I'm a proud American and I served my country as a Marine, and my community for over 25 years as a police officer. I'm damned sick and tired of my country being spat upon by terrorists and thugs from around the world, that seem to do so with impunity. I'm waiting for the leaders of this country to grow a set of brass balls and do whatever is necessary to put an end to those threats and attacks.

On one hand Mr. Obama preaches a strong stance against terrorism. Yet, almost in the same breath he says he believes America has not employed strong enough diplomatic sanctions against terrorist nations. Iran is already under three U. N. Sanctions for its pursuit of a nuclear program, and it merely laughs and thumbs its nose at those injunctions. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says Iran's nuclear program is for peaceful purposes and would have us believe that Iran is not working to build nuclear weapons. So it seems that diplomatic sanctions, no matter how stern, against terrorist nations are as effective as spraying an angry Grizzly Bear with a water pistol.

I have said it before and I'll say it again-after World War II the leaders of our nation gradually lost their backbone, and now it seems that it is America who trembles when terror raises its head. In the name of political correctness, we hurry to pacify those who damn, threaten and attack us, and bow to their wishes. And all the while we continue to sacrifice the lives of our good men and women, and call it winning the war against terrorism. That is nothing more than pure political bullshit.

Our military leaders are ignored when they speak truthfully about what is required to squash terrorist regimes, and the war against terrorism continues to be waged by those who sit on their fat asses in plush offices. If anyone would like to see a solid, brass-balled leader, look no farther than Russia's Vladimir Putin. Although at this point in time he might not be Russia's president, I firmly believe he still wields more power than most of the world imagines.

Mr. Putin's demeanor says very clearly, "Screw with me and I'll kick your ass." In fact, I think, even now, he has the brass to step into the ring and go man to man with anyone who challenges him. He isn't a man to be taken lightly, and don't be foolish enough to try and back him down with a bluff. Certainly, I have never met Vladimir Putin, but I admire and respect him.

He projects the confidence a nation should expect in its leader, and it shows every time he steps into the public eye. It is truly a sad commentary to say anyone aspiring to be President of the United States of America should look to Russia for their role model. But, it has indeed been a very long time since anyone with the brass of Vladimir Putin has stepped up to represent America.
