Food for thought

The Obamanites don't have any clue as they encourage the Muslim Brotherhood [which has elements and proven connections to terrorist organizations] in the fall of Egypt. The latest battle of WW III Started - 1979

This is not very long, but very informative.

You have need to read the catalog of events in this brief piece. Then, ask yourself how anyone can take the position that all we have to do is bring our troops home from Iraq, & Afghanistan then sit back, reset the snooze alarm, go back to
sleep, and no one will ever bother us again

In case you missed it, World War III began in November 1979... That alarm has been ringing for 31 years!!  

US Navy Captain Ouimette is the Executive Officer at Naval Air Station, Pensacola , Florida .
This is a copy of the speech he gave.  

It is an accurate account of why we are in so much trouble today and why this action is so necessary.


That's what we think we heard on the 11th of September 2001 (When more than 3,000 Americans were killed) and maybe it was, but I think it should have been 'Get Out of Bed!' In fact, I think the alarm clock has been buzzing since 1979 and we have continued to hit the snooze button and roll over for a few more minutes of peaceful sleep since then. 

It was a cool fall day in November 1979 in a country going through a religious and political upheaval when a group of Iranian students attacked and seized the American Embassy in Tehran . This seizure was an outright attack on American soil; it was an attack that held the world's most powerful country hostage and paralyzed a Presidency.  

The attack on this sovereign U. S. Embassy set the stage for events to follow for the next 31 years.  

America was still reeling from the aftermath of the Vietnam experience and had a serious threat from the Soviet Union when then, President Carter, had to do something. He chose to conduct a clandestine raid in the desert. The ill-fated mission ended in ruin, but stood as a symbol of America 's inability to deal with terrorism. 

America's military had been decimated and down sized/right sized since the end of the Vietnam War. A poorly trained, poorly equipped and poorly organized military was called on to execute a complex mission that was doomed from the start.

Shortly after the Tehran experience, Americans began to be kidnapped and killed throughout the Middle East . America could do little to protect her citizens living and working abroad. The attacks against US soil continued

In April of 1983, when Ronald Reagan was president, a large vehicle packed with high explosives was driven into the US Embassy compound in Beirut .  When it explodes, it kills 63 people. The alarm went off again and America hit the Snooze Button once more. 

Then just six short months later in 1983 a large truck heavily laden down with over 2500 pounds of TNT smashed through the main gate of the US Marine Corps headquarters in Beirut and 241 US servicemen are killed. America mourns her dead and hit the Snooze Button once more. 

Two months later in December 1983, another truck loaded with explosives is driven into the US Embassy in Kuwait , and America continues her slumber. 

The following year, in September 1984, another van was driven into the gate of the US Embassy in Beirut and America slept. 

Soon the terrorism spreads to Europe . In April 1985 a bomb explodes in a restaurant frequented by US soldiers in Madrid . 

Then in August 1985, a Volkswagen loaded with explosives is driven into the main gate of the US Air Force Base at  Rheine-Main, 22 are killed and the snooze alarm is buzzing louder and louder as US interests are continually attacked.

Fifty-nine days later in 1985 a cruise ship, the Achille Lauro is hijacked and we watched as an American in a wheelchair  is singled out of the passenger list and executed.

The terrorists then shift their tactics to bombing civilian airliners when they bomb TWA Flight 840 in April of 1986 that  killed 4 and the most tragic bombing, Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie , Scotland in 1988, killing 259.     [this
incident brought an indictment AND conviction on Gadhafi as a co-conspiritor] 

The wake up alarm is getting louder and louder. 

The terrorists decide to bring the fight to America . In January 1993, two CIA agents are shot and killed as they enter CIA  headquarters in Langley , Virginia . 

The following month, February 1993, a group of terrorists are arrested after a rented van packed with explosives is driven  into the underground parking garage of the World Trade Center in New York City . Six people are killed and over 1000 are injured. Still this is a crime and not an act of war? 

The Snooze alarm is depressed again. 

Then in November 1995 a car bomb explodes at a US military complex in Riyadh Saudi Arabia killing seven service men and women. 

A few months later in June of 1996, another truck bomb explodes only 35 yards from the US military compound in  Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. It destroys the Khobar Towers, a US Air Force barracks, killing 19 and injuring over 500. The  terrorists are getting braver and smarter as they see that America does not respond decisively. 

They move to coordinate their attacks in a simultaneous attack on two US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania .  These  attacks were planned with precision. They kill 224. America responds with cruise missile attacks and goes back to sleep. 

The USS Cole was docked in the port of Aden, Yemen for refueling on 12 October 2000, when a small craft pulled along  side the ship and exploded killing 17 US Navy Sailors. Attacking a US War Ship is an act of war, but we sent the FBI to  investigate the crime and went back to sleep. 

And of course you know the events of 11 September 2001. Most Americans think this was the first attack against US soil  or in America . How wrong they are. America has been under a constant attack since 1979 and we chose to hit the  snooze alarm and roll over and go back to sleep. 

In the news lately we have seen lots of finger pointing from every high official in government over what they knew and what  hey didn't know.  But if you've read the papers and paid a little attention I think you can see exactly what they knew. You don't have to be in the FBI or CIA or on the National Security Council to see the pattern that has been developing since 1979.

I think we have been in a war for the past 31 years and it will continue until we as a people decide enough is enough.  America needs to 'Get out of Bed' and act decisively now. America has been changed forever.  We have to be ready to pay  the price and make the sacrifice to ensure our way of life continues. We cannot afford to keep hitting the snooze button  again and again and roll over and go back to sleep. 

After the attack on Pearl Harbor , Admiral Yamamoto said '... it seems all we have done is awakened a sleeping giant.' This is the message we need to disseminate to terrorists around the world. 

This is not a political thing to be hashed over in an election year, this is an AMERICAN thing. This is about our Freedom  and the Freedom of our children in years to come.

If you believe in this please Share it to as many people as you can especially to the young people and all those who dozed off in history class and who seem so quick to protest such a necessary military action. 

If you don't believe it, just ignore this information, complain about our military commitments, complain about our commitment to our allies, complain about our defending our interests around the world, then roll over and go back to sleep, tomorrow pray you do not wake up without the freedom you have come to  expect!!,   

"Freedom is not Free, endless hours, time lost with those you love,  must be devoted to a constant watch and effort to protect it.
Once a small a portion of freedom is lost, it is almost impossible to regain.

Implicit faith in God and constant effort are your heritage to fight with.”

"What have you done for Freedom today?"
