September 11, 2001 - Never Forget

On September 11, 2001, the United States was attacked by Islamic Fascist Terrorists.  About 3,000 people were killed as a result of this attack.  This event was not much different than the surprise attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, which began US involvement in World War II.  9/11 actually began our involvement in the war on Islamic Fascist Terrorism that has changed the world forever.   I was actually in the New York City area when 9/11 occurred.  It took me three weeks to get home because many flights were cancelled. 

There is no doubt that 9/11 was a pivotal moment in American history.  It resulted in American involvement in wars in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Afghanistan and other countries.   Thousands have died or been wounded in the last 20 years fighting Islamic Fascist Terrorism.  The recent catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan has not ended this war.  Matter of fact, now that the Taliban Terrorists are back in charge of Afghanistan after all the blood and resources we spent on that country just insures that we will have more war not less.  We will have to bomb Terrorist bases in Afghanistan within 12 months; just wait and see.   It is inevitable.  

As of this 9/11, 2021, Americans and Afghan supporters are being held hostage in Afghanistan thanks to stupid, incompetent, feeble, feckless Joe Biden.  It is not bad enough that 2,500 Americans were killed in Afghanistan and 20,000 were wounded in addition to spending more than $2 Trillion and all for nothing.  It is a disgraceful chapter in American history.  Our soldiers are heroes.  Their military leaders and Bush II, Obama and Biden made a real mess of things in Afghanistan.   Trump was on the right track in reaching an agreement with the Taliban that was conditioned on various actions.  The calamity we have seen in Afghanistan would never have happened under Trump.  

Biden the the idiot that he is abandoned that agreement and just pulled the troops out before getting all Americans and Afghans out along with all our military equipment that will now end up in Terrorist hands all over the world.  This is by far the dumbest and saddest chapter in American history so far during the Biden/Harris Presidency.  

In any case, we must Never forget 9/11 if we are going to prevent it from happening again on our soil.  The lessons learned from Afghanistan is Never land troops in a god awful place.  Use drones and bombers to kill Terrorists leaders and their followers.  Hopefully, we have learned that lesson well; but I doubt it.  The Military Industrial Complex benefits from continuous wars.  It is worth billions of dollars every year to those feeding at the trough.  What do they care.  It is the soldiers who die and or are wounded fighting these wars.  These heroes pay the price for these wars not our leaders.  Never Again, Never Again.
