President George W Bush rightfully understood that the attacks on 9/11 were acts of war, but the hijackers were not soldiers from a foreign land. The nineteen 'terrorists' had been organized by a shadowy cabal affiliated with Osama Bin Ladin's Al-Qaada into four separate cells, each with a different target. After the collapse of the Twin Towers, the destruction of the Pentagon and downing of the United flight into a Pennsylvania field, few Americans asked why were attacked. In fact the effect existed without cause other than the standard 'they hate us'.
If that was the case, why didn't anyone ask why?
Because we eat bacon, which is 'haram' or forbidden by the Koran?
Because our women wear short skirts?
In truth it didn't matter why as long as the USA exacted revenge from an Islamic victim or victims.
No Iraqis or Afghanis on the jets of 9/11 didn't prevent us from going to war with those distant countries
That nineteen of the hijackers were Saudi was no 'casus belli' for the Pentagon, although the American media backed up the war with red, white, and blue dripping from the headlines and this morning Fox News, CNN, the Daily News, the New York Post, and hundreds of news outlets whipped up the sheep into a frenzy about how the protests against the police killing unarmed black men and white men and anyone else led to a mad man's shooting of two NYPD officers.
The Head of the NYPD Union SkullBreakers 109 accused the Mayor of inciting his communist cohorts to acts of retaliation. Ex-police commissioners were fast to protect their blue bloods and the NYPD union leaders vowed to not make arrests during the coming days. In other words they are threatening to go on strike and as much as I support the unions I would cross the picket line to be a cop during the crisis.
Hire some old Black Panthers too.
The tragedy of this shooting is that no one is asking why the gunman could get a gun from a Georgia pawn shop.
Georgia has no check-up of gun purchases.
Secondly why don't cop cars have bullet proof glass?
Because cities are too cheap to protect the boys in blue.
And lastly the Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Sean Bell, and Darren Wilson did not kill the two cops. the protestors didn't not shoot Officers Liu and Ramos> A crazy man pulled the trigger.
All I want is power for the people.
White, black, yellow, coffee et al, but as Chairman Mao said, "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun."
And Mao knew what he was saying.
