The Democrats and Barack Obama have eliminated the word "terrorism" from their politically correct vocabulary ... but that does not eliminate the danger to Americans. Just ask the Russians who had terrorists attack a train on Saturday that left dozens dead and dozens more injured.
(When will our Democrat president find it politically correct to protect We the People?)
Robin Beres writes in today's Richmond Times-Dispatch:
No Americans old enough to remember will soon forget where they were and what they were doing when four airplanes were used on a late summer day in 2001 to murder nearly 3,000 of our fellow citizens. Americans demanded swift retribution be visited upon those who had planned the massacre. The determination to end the ongoing terror attacks that had been perpetrated against the U.S. since the 1983 Marine barracks bombing in Lebanon was sincere and strong.Our enemies are still plotting against us....
Sept. 11, 2001, happened more than eight years ago. Most of us recall the terror and the pain of that day. But it is fast fading into the recesses of memory. Already, more than 20 percent of Americans were either not yet born or were too young to remember those events. Life has moved on.
But the forces behind the horrific attacks are still here. They are not finished with their work. And the threat of another event -- perhaps something far worse -- is just as real as it was on Sept. 12, 2001. In fact, the danger of a second attack continues to grow, and America has much to do to stop the countdown toward what could be our Armageddon.
