Is It Time To “Cut And
I want to share with you a report from the war zone. Yes,
progress is being made, but the resistance has been growing and will likely get
worse. Here’s one quote from the frontline: “As larger areas of the border come
under operational control, we can expect violence to increase as smuggling
operations can no longer operate with impunity and do not have unfettered access
to the border for their criminal activities. This explosion of aggression is an
indicator [of] how desperate and angry [they] are at the increasing disruption
of their smuggling routes.”
Was that a report from the border of Iraq and
Iran or from a mountainous region in Afghanistan? No, folks, that statement was
given by Border Patrol Chief David V. Aguilar to a congressional subcommittee
this year about our own nation’s southern border with Mexico! And what does this
tell us was taking place before recent efforts to gain control of our own
Today’s Washington Times reports that there has been an
explosion of violence along the southern border – assaults against Border Patrol
agents are up 100% in the past year. Now illegal aliens and smugglers are
resorting to more extreme tactics, such as setting fires to our national forests
in order to a) distract Border Patrol agents and local authorities and b)
attempt to “burn agents out of observation posts and patrol routes.” As a result
of the increasing lawlessness, firefighters sent in to battle the flames must go
with armed escorts from local, state or federal law enforcement agencies. No
wonder Reid and Pelosi want to “cut and run” from Arizona as well as Iraq.
In addition to the violence, these fires are damaging sensitive
environmental sites, such as the Coronado National Forest. So environmental
groups are suing – for tougher enforcement so illegal aliens won’t be able to
set our national forests on fire? No, liberal environmentalists have been waging
a legal battle for years to prevent the border fence from being built at all for
a variety of reasons, including the fact that the fence is forcing illegal
aliens and drug smugglers to cross into environmentally sensitive areas. So,
from their point of view, the damage to the environment is the fault of the U.S.
government for making it more difficult for the illegal aliens to get into the
By the way, last year Congress voted to build 854 miles of
fencing along the southern border, and so far only 12 miles have been built.
Let’s see, 12 miles in six months is two miles a month, twenty-four miles a
year. So at that rate it will take the most powerful nation in the world about
35 years to secure its southern border.
My friends, this is not the
hallmark of a serious nation at war, intent on defending its homeland. If these
same bureaucrats were running the government during World War II, America would
not have developed the atomic bomb until the 1970s. Why is this being tolerated?
The last time I checked, hundreds of thousands of people pouring across your
border, shooting at government officers and burning your land was called an
invasion. Where is the outrage at the White House?
Should Scare Us
I suspect many Americans have only a passing concern
about the events in Gaza this week. Nobody actually wants to see more pictures
of masked gunmen shooting up the streets, forcing men to kneel and executing
them in front of their families. But as distasteful as those images are, they
have nothing to do with our lives here, right? Wrong! What we have been
witnessing this week is another victory for Islamofascism. The Hamas fighters,
as they routed the numerically superior Fatah forces, immediately knelt and
praised Allah for their victory. They converted a Fatah office into a mosque.
They attacked a Christian center, collected the Bibles and burned them.
Columnist and warrior Ralph Peters hit a grand slam home run again this
morning in his column in the New York Post with his analysis of the Hamas
victory. He points out that from Gaza to Baghdad, from Lebanon to London, we are
witnessing men who have given their lives to Allah and who are willing to die
and kill with impunity. Hamas fighters “at the height of last week’s fighting in
Gaza” only numbered “one Palestinian in 300,” but as Peters notes, today they
control Gaza and 1.5 million people.
We are still in denial about the
Islamofascist fanatics. Many conflicts can be settled by negotiations, but not
wars in which one side believes it is taking orders directly from its god. That
is why the Bush Administration should stop pressuring Israel to make more
concessions. No amount of land will satisfy Palestinian Muslims’ thirst for
Jewish blood. That is why the Baker Commission and the diplomatic community are
wrong when they say we must get Iran’s cooperation through talks. They keep
forgetting, or are willfully ignoring, that Iranian “president” Ahmadinejad
believes the Muslim messiah is coming soon to kill all the Christians and Jews,
and that he has been assigned the holy task of paving the way for his arrival.
What possible incentive could we offer for Ahmadinejad to compromise this
Across Europe there is but a remnant of Judeo-Christian
civilization. Here, Americans are more religious, but our elites, from the media
to our foreign policy establishment, seem to be incapable of understanding the
murderers who kill for Allah. These elites are more frightened by George Bush
praying than they are by the Islamists who cut off heads and send women to blow
up hospitals. ABC News played a video last night of a “graduation” ceremony at a
terror school in Afghanistan that was sending off its “graduates” to France,
England, Canada and the U.S. to wage jihad, while at American universities
leftwing educators work nonstop to keep military recruiters off our campuses.
So what can we do?
“We the people” must first come to grips with
the reality confronting us. While our Marines are at war, most Americans are at
the mall, unfazed by the threat to our civilization. That disconnect is
dangerous, and that is what allows some politicians to declare the war “lost” or
to denounce it as “George W. Bush’s war.” We must teach our children what is
unique and good about America, and why our values are worth defending. We must
inform our policymakers about the “gathering storm” threatening our civilization
and warn them against the siren song of appeasement. And we must demand that our
government do all that is within its power to defend our homeland and crush the
Islamofascists who have declared war on us.
This is the mission to which
