Moral Clarity: Terrorism is Not the Answer
When terrorists use children as human shields, tell me where the moral ambiguity is in all this?
When terrorists murder a child then booby trap the body with explosives, who is the villain in this war?
When terrorists launch a homicide car bomb to explode while soldiers are passing out candy to children, tell me, who are the ones on the side of the Iraqi people? And who are the ones murdering innocent Iraqi men, women, and children?
When terrorists grow so desperate as to kidnap and force innocents into playing the despicable role of homicide bomber, targeting mosques, who are the infidels and who are the true Muslims serving God? The answer should be clear. The truth, crystal clear.
Who are the real evil-doers and who are the true holy warriors.....warriors with halos that are screwed on so straight and tight, that only the morally blind would fail to see the obvious?
Who are the ones building schools, mosques, playgrounds, sewage systems, and overall, just making an effort to make life better by helping Iraqis construct a new life for their people? Who are the ones trying to make a positive difference, and who are the ones leaving a negative impact? Who sends a positive message of prosperity for the future of Iraq, and who offers a bleak vision of misery and death?
Moral relativism has no place here. It is unwelcomed and offensive.
And when Hollyweird liberals the likes of Michael Moore, Barbra Streisand, Cindy Sheehan, Jane Fonda, Jeanine Garafalo, Martin Sheen, Bette Midler, Phil Donahue, and all the rest of those blame-America-first-why-do-they-hate-us-whining Hollywood do-gooders talk of hating violence, war is not the answer, babies being killed...blah, blah, blah.....why are they saying it to us, and not being pro-actively involved in saying it to them, the real enemies of humanity?
It's funny how these liberals claim to be on the side of protecting the Iraqis, when under their management, more of this would still be happening. The compassion of liberal do-gooders would endorse more Saddamy upon the people of Iraq.
Their idea of what constitutes a human rights scandal is this.
They often express anti-American sentiments (different from criticism on America), yet don't you dare ever question their patriotism. After all, dissent by it's very nature is patriotic and American, right?
How is your moral compass working?
It is clear who is on the side of the Iraqi people and who is on the side of evil. It is clear to many hopeful Iraqis as well.
Is it clear to you?
You're either on the side of the terrorists or on the side of civilization. There is no fence to sit your ass on...no neutral sidelines in this struggle.
The choice is a chance for freedom or enslavement to 13th century culture that has spawned the kind of intolerance and religious perversion that we see here today.
