Too Soon To Know

 It is being reported that a car bomb was discovered in Time Square, in New York City,NY. It seems as if the bomb was in the process of detonating, but had malfunctioned. Police were called in and the bomb was neutralized.

 It is far too soon to know if this was a case of home-grown terrorism or radical Islamist.

 What it does tell us , is that there are people who wish to kill innocent American citizens.

  This is the most cowardly act on the face of the planet. To place a device of mass destruction in the center of a city and then to walk away, not knowing or caring who or how many people it will kill, is the lowest act of cruelty. Only the mind of someone who is pure evil could think of, let alone act on such and impulse.

 Thank God they were unsuccessful in their attempt. Thank goodness for the men and women with the courage to be a part of the bomb squad.

  We must all , as citizens be ever aware of this danger and be ever watchful for such things.

    You know? We have the greatest and most powerful military in the world. Instead of ending a war,we spend more time screwing around being “politically correct.” Our guys are in harms way every single day we are over in Iraq and Afghanistan. Instead of obliterating the enemy that is supposed to be the end result,we worry about how we’ll look to the world. We don’t want to oooofffffffend anybody. Thank God to the WWII generation because if it wasn’t for them we’d either be a bar of soap,speaking German,or a lamp shade.
    Those reading are probably saying ‘…what’s that have to do with the car bomb in New York?”
    It has everything to do with it! Since Obama has been in office, our credibility has eroded and we have lost our respect in the world. We need a President Reagan again to once again regain our respect.
    I want my country back and thank God for the NYPD and their officers.

    Agreed !

    The Iran-Contra guy? Really? Respect? Killing innocent civillians is exactly what drives attempts like Times Square. Read your post Bill. You advocate the exact same thing.

  4. Bill Says:

    Advocate the exact same thing? What does that mean?

  5. frankknotts Says:

    meatball says, “Killing innocent civillians is exactly what drives attempts like Times Square”, but meatball, what about the thousands of innocent civillians killed on 9/11?
    You are not one of those people that think America deserved that , are you ? Reagan knew that there can only be peace through strength. This does not mean that we must go around the world killing indiscriminately, but it does mean that we cannot allow our enemies to think that they can attack us without there being a price to pay. And if you study history you will find that war is usualy ended when the civillian population will no longer stand behind the government and military. This is also known as losing. We can’t afford to lose to our current enemies, this is not about territory or conquest, it is about them wanting to wipe us from the face of the earth.

    Frank, I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “…peace through superior firepower…” I so agree with you about what President Reagan said, peace through strength.That’s exactly what every rational thinking human being on the planet wants is PEACE!!!!!!!!!
    Meatball, do I want innocent civilians to be killed? OF COURSE NOT!
    But guess what, it happens.
    Do I make apologies for my lifestyle because of our strength? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
    Look at WWII. Many civilians died and many more will die in wars. It’s human nature. Sometimes the only way to deal with a bully is a punch to the face because that’s all some of these fruitcakes understand.

  7. frankknotts Says:

    The argument can also be made that the Afghan war is being lenghtened due to our attempts to keep civillian casualties at zero. This restricts how we fight the war. If we cannot use our superior forces to their maxiumum effectiveness, then we actually put our soldiers lives in danger.

  8. meatball Says:

    Can we agree that the majority of Iraqis, Afghans, Iranians don’t want to see US citizens (or soldiers) killed? I understand collateral damage, I also understand revenge is human nature. I heard on local radio, dozens of my friends and neighbors express their will for extralegal revenge upon a certain former pediatrician who left a huge wake of collateral damage.

    No easy answers here.

      Of course we can agree on that,meatball! Without a doubt. I also believe that not every Muslim wants this extremeism either! The numbers will only show that.
      Muslims,Jews,Christians etc all work together throughout the world without any problems. Most of these people only want to make a living and provide for their families and don’t want war.

  9. meatball Says:

    I’m also not sure what an Afghan War win looks like. Perhaps we have already won. Perhaps a win looks like a Happy Harry’s on every corner. Pizza Hut, Burger King, and allah forgive Walmart. A TV in every hut?

  10. frankknotts Says:

    Actually meatball, we have not won. The current Afghan president is corrupt as is most of his government. A win in my opinion will look like the Afghan people having a form of government that allows for self determination. WOW! That wouldn’t be half bad to have here at home again either. They will never look like us and they don’t have to. This is going to sound cynical, but Afghan may never be free. While I do believe that on an individual level every person longs for freedom, on a societal level some people cannot pull it together. In Afghanstan there is a long history of tribal wars that people there cannot get past. It is ironic that the war that everyone agreed needed to be fought, is actually the one we are having the most trouble fininshing. Iraq has actually moved forward, not without some missteps. The differnce being iraq was a more modern nation at the time we went in to liberate the country.
