Revisiting 9/11: “Hit the buildings, Missed America”

by lewwaters

What happened, America? We came together as a people, united behind the President demanding justice for so many of our people being murdered in an senseless act of war.

How did we allow unscrupulous politico’s to once again divide us?

Where did the resolve we read in the following go? I did not write the following, but wish I had.

Hit the buildings, Missed America

An open letter to a terrorist: Well, you hit the World Trade Center, but you missed America. You hit the Pentagon, but you missed America. You used helpless American bodies, to take out other American bodies, but like a poor marksman, you STILL missed America.

Why? Because of something you guys will never understand. America isn’t about a building or two, not about financial centers, not about military centers, America isn’t about a place, America isn’t even about a bunch of bodies. America is about an IDEA. An idea, that you can go someplace where you can earn as much as you can figure out how to, live for the most part, like you envisioned living, and pursue Happiness. (No guarantees that you’ll reach it, but you can sure try!)

Go ahead and whine your terrorist whine, and chant your terrorist litany: “If you can not see my point, then feel my pain.” This concept is alien to Americans. We live in a country where we don’t have to see your point. But you’re free to have one. We don’t have to listen to your speech. But you’re free to say one. Don’t know where you got the strange idea that everyone has to agree with you. We don’t agree with each other in this country, almost as a matter of pride. We’re a collection of guys that don’t agree, called States. We united our individual states to protect ourselves from tyranny in the world. Another idea, we made up on the spot. You CAN make it up as you go, when it’s your country.

If you’re free enough.

Yeah, we’re fat, sloppy, easy-going goofs most of the time. That’s an unfortunate image to project to the world, but it comes of feeling free and easy about the world you live in. It’s unfortunate too, because people start to forget that when you attack Americans, they tend to fight like a cornered badger. The first we knew of the War of 1812, was when England burned Washington D.C. to the ground. Didn’t turn out like England thought it was going to, and it’s not going to turn out like you think, either. Sorry, but you’re not the first bully on our shores, just the most recent.

No Marquis of Queensbury rules for Americans, either. We were the FIRST and so far, only country in the world to use nuclear weapons in anger. Horrific idea, nowadays? News for you bucko, it was back then too, but we used it anyway. Only had two of them in the whole world and we used ’em both. Grandpa Jones worked on the Manhattan Project. Told me once, that right up until they threw the switch, the physicists were still arguing over whether the Uranium alone would fission, or whether it would start a fissioning chain reaction that would eat everything. But they threw the switch anyway, because we had a War to win. Does that tell you something about American Resolve?

So who just declared War on us? It would be nice to point to some real estate, like the good old days. Unfortunately, we’re probably at war with random camps, in far-flung places. Who think they’re safe. Just like the Barbary Pirates did, IIRC. Better start sleeping with one eye open.

There’s a spirit that tends to take over people who come to this country, looking for opportunity, looking for liberty, looking for freedom. Even if they misuse it. The Marielistas that Castro emptied out of his prisons, were overjoyed to find out how much freedom there was. First thing they did when they hit our shores, was run out and buy guns. The ones that didn’t end up dead, ended up in prisons. It was a big PITA then (especially in south Florida), but you’re only the newest PITA, not the first.

You guys seem to be incapable of understanding that we don’t live in America, America lives in US! American Spirit is what it’s called. And killing a few thousand of us, or a few million of us, won’t change it. Most of the time, it’s a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of Spirit. Until we’re crossed in a cowardly manner, then it becomes an entirely different kind of Spirit.

Wait until you see what we do with that Spirit, this time.

Sleep tight, if you can. We’re coming.

How did we allow our citizens to be lulled back to sleep? How did we allow politicians to weaken our resolve as they scored political points off of the defending of our country?

More importantly, how did we ever allow it to be twisted to where we were the aggressor after being so savagely attacked?

  1. The problem is that we all never “came together as a country”, Lew. The real Americans came together, whilst the Leftist pukes bided their time muttering under their breath whenever they saw a display of patriotism or the American Flag.

    Lefties are notorious liars and actors. The only things those selfish bastards “align” themselves with are suicide and death. They hate anything but their “agenda”, which has always been the destruction of America as we know it.

    Now that the Leftist pukes reside totally in the Democrat Party, America can focus on getting rid of the disgusting SOB’s.

  2. Btw, let us never forget that the Leftist Media has went way out of it’s way to hide and bury the images you show in the video above. Hiding the video and pictures was the first step in transforming America into the “aggressor” and you can place the blame for that first step directly on our lying, rotten Media.

  3. That is sort of my point, Jack.

    The people did come together while leftist scum plotted. We saw it in the 2003/2004 campaign of John ‘F’in Kerry and other Democrats who saw their chance to relive how they screwed us over in Vietnam.

    All for political points, even though just a couple years earlier, it was they calling for strong action against Saddam and they who were demanding Bush launch an attack on someone immediately after 9/11.

    That’s why Bush said, “When I take action, I’m not going to fire a $2 million missile at a $10 empty tent and hit a camel in the butt. It’s going to be decisive.”

    That was in response to Democrats demanding he take quick action.

    Jack, that very point you bring up in your second comment is clearly explained in the book Underdogma I linked to.
