This group called the American Issues Project put out an ad exposing Barack Obama’s ties to William (Bill) Ayers, a know terrrorist.   In response to this ad, the Obama campaign is trying to prosecute the group.   Please check out this group’s website, and watch the ad and read the info on the Weather Underground (especially the timeline).   Then, as Mark Levin suggested, call the Obama campaign and ask them why he is friends with Bill Ayers.

In light of the terrible attack on Benazir Bhutto in Pakistan, I feel compelled to express my views on Al-Qaeda. The following is a paper I wrote for a class I took called Terrorism and Political Violence. I think it is important to understand these people, or we will never be able to defeat them. 

A Backwards Looking People and an Infidel Nation

On September 11, 2001, the United States incurred the worst terrorist attack in its history when two hijacked airplanes crashed into the World Trade Towers in New York. Another hijacked airplane crashed into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., while yet another one bound for the Capital crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. This attack hit the heart of America. Many of us cried and reeled as we watched the Trade Towers collapse right before our eyes, and thought of all the people inside of them. Thousands of people died that day, and bodies were found for weeks to come. This horrific act left many Americans asking who was behind it. Who would commit these terrible attacks? In the days that followed, we learned that a radical Islamic terrorist group named Al-Qaeda was responsible. Many Americans had never heard of this group, but it would soon become a household name and we would learn much more about them and their leader Osama bin Laden. (more…)

Iraq

Alright, here we go. It was only a matter of time before I had to talk about Iraq. The only reason it’s waited this long is because I’ve really been “biting my tounge” so to speak.
On Wednesday, the President delivered his State of the Union Address, in which he outlined a new strategy for Iraq. The main focus of this strategy is the deployment of 20,000 additional troops. I think this is the only way we can win over there. I actually think we need to send about 100,000 over there and just squash this insurgency (get er done!). However, that won’t happen. It should, but it won’t. I think the President has a good plan, that can work. However, it isn’t going to be a quick or easy thing. In my opinion, it will probably get much worse at first. Just like a child, the insurgents in Iraq will want to test their limits; see how far they can really go. For a while, it is going to be bad, probably really bad. But, it will get better. It’s going to take time, though; a long time. I believe that this is a conflict that will take 5 to 10 years to sort out, maybe more. But, it will be worth it. Make no mistake that if we withdraw, as the Democrats want, that nation and area would be overrun by Iran in short order. The violence we are seeing now would pale in comparison. It would be the most costly mistake we could make. We have to crush this insurgency. We have to protect Iraq’s borders. In time, that will take less and less of our troops. We have a vested interest in the outcome of this war, not only politically, but in respect to our country’s safety and authority. If we were to pull out now, the message would be sent that if you light a big enough fire under our butts, we will run away and cower. Is this the kind of message we want to send to Iran and Syria? And, make no mistake about it, we are already engaged in a war with these countries – being fought in Iraq. Most of the insurgency is sponsored by Iran. Many of the insurgents are citizens of Iran. Just today several militants from Iran were arrested. We must win this war, or we will lose much more than Iraq. We cannot led terrorists and terrorist nations, ie Iran and Syria, gain any more momentum or power than they already have. These countries are indeed terrorist nations. They are the main supporters and sponsors of radical terrorist groups like Hezbollah. They are fascists, like the Nazis were. They believe their ideology is the only thing that should be on the face of this planet, and that any who oppose them should be wiped off the face of the earth. This is something we cannot ignore or escape. If we lose in Iraq, Iran will take it over. It will become another safe-haven for terrorists. We simply cannot afford not to win in Iraq!
I hope and pray that the Democrats here will open their eyes and see this. They must stop fighting everything President Bush does, and realize that they need to do not only what is best for the Iraqi people, but what is best for our people!
