Let's see, a horrible terrorist attack occurs. Hundreds die. The terrorists attack you because you aid in an arrest of terror agents in a plot to smuggle weapons (Bin Laden vowed revenge after this incident). What do you do? Vote against your government because you're afraid you'll be attacked unless you capitulate on your anti-terror stance. Now, you have a socialist government that will be more touchy feely with the terrorists. That's just brilliant.
"Please, oh please don't hurt us nice Mr Terrorist sir. We promise not to help those mean old Americans foil your plans anymore. Just leave us be."
Does Europe ever learn? They're so freaking concerned with their own safety "Today", they never stop to consider what tomarrow will bring. That, and the fact that "Anti-Americanism" is hip now. This is exactly what happened with Hitler. Exactly! "We'll give them what they want. That's sure to make them back off." It doesn't work!
Now is the time for cold, calculating LOGIC!!! Decisions based on fear and panic are going to get our throats cut. It's a real serious situation we're in. I know 2001 was a while ago but it happened.
Something to consider; China has a HUGE population of Muslims. I'm guessing that more than one or two of them believe as the extremists do. They've (China) never been attacked. You know why. They start blowing stuff up there and it's good night! What do you think China's response would be to a September 11th like attack on Beijing? "Katie bar the door!"
I ask you, who would hold China in contempt the way we've been? No one. We are soft and CARE about what the world thinks of us. China doesn't give a [email protected]
about what the world thinks. Their policy is "Mess with us and die!" That's a policy that keeps them safe. It's harsh, I know but like I've said, THEIR buildings haven't been attacked--ours have. We could adopt the same policy without becoming a communist nation. How do I know? Because we once had that policy. We're soft. Too soft.
Back to Spain. What message does this election send the terrorists? --Push hard enough and they crumble. Store water this November, it may come in handy-- God, I hope not!
