Never Forget September 11th…But Do We?
If you Really don’t want to forget, then you need to go back 22 years, not just 11:
9/11/1990: Address Before a Joint Session of Congress (September 11, 1990) (read the speech, watch the video at the right)
Because this is the moment where the President of the United States of America declared war on any part of the world who would not accede to his (and thus the American people by proxy) ideology of a new world order (yes, the term has become a conspiracy theorist’s wet dream, but it is clearly what he is describing…one common rule of law under the United Nations) and when the U.S. military was repurposed from protecting the sovereignty of The United States of America to securing the fith objective of the United Nations.
“We stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective—a new world order—can emerge…
We’re now in sight of a United Nations that performs as envisioned by its founders.”
And what we mourn today, and what the people who died 11 years ago gave their lives for their country and peers, is the price we paid for the aggressive pursuit of that ideology, not the mere uprovoked attack of what we now broadly call anyone committing a crime…a “terrorist.”
If we focused on the needs of our own country on a day to day basis, as much as we did that day, instead of what we call “humanitarian causes” in other sovereign nations, our country wouldn’t be in economic duress and owned by China nor quite so willing to give up the freedoms this country was founded on due to the constant ‘suggestion’ that there is a terrorist around every corner.
Many Americans gave their lives to protect other Americans 11 years ago today, I can’t think of any major conflict our military was involved in the past few decades where that was ‘truly’ the underlying goal. And yet we cite the loss of those lives to move away from the very beliefs this country was founded on, instead of honoring those who lost their lives for this country by embracing those beliefs even stronger.
