Individuals living in fear
Hereís the deal. I walk around my office checking out my peers. Here is Peter, in a seven-hundred dollar suit, chatting with Brad about where they are going to go out for drinks after work. Along comes Debbie, in a sexy miniskirt suit, and P and B immediately invite her along to drinks. She agrees, running her fingers through her long blonde hair excessively.

Meanwhile, the rest of the lean, mean hungry world is gearing up for world war three.

And the line, as it had been dawn, is them, versus US. Peter, Brad, Debbie and the rest of the complacent, soft core United States.

The front page of the WSJ is covered with stories on Taliban trained Jihad warriors, who live solely to kill Americans!

Hey Pete, kill any Pakistani recently? Didnít think so.

The militant Muslims are brainwashed killing machines. An interview of an eleven-year old Masdrasah (Pakistani Islamist school) boy named Arshad reports him explaining that dinosaurs do indeed exist, ďThe Jewish and American infidels have created these beasts to devour MuslimsĒ he swears.

In America such a statement would evince a host of MCAS tests raining down on the sixth graderís public school. In Pakistan, who has become our ďallyĒ as of late, this indoctrination is commendable.

Iíll bet you that eleven year old Arshad can clean, load and fire an assault rifle a hell of a lot more effectively than I, a man twice his age and ever his intellectual superior, can though.

And who is to blame for this? There is a ban on private ownership of assault rifles in the US! What is that shit all about? Every photograph Iíve EVER seen of middle-eastern people has featured the Russian-made Kalashnikov rifle. I want an M-16. I can afford one. I can be trained to use one for national protection. Who are these anti-gun lobbyists fooling?

Those who advocate the removal of this type of weapon from public hands will be the same corpses lying in a pit of lyme, murdered execution style by infidel hating mercenaries. Screw that!

Who wants to die like that? Now, Iím not advocating a return to the Wild West, but rather a formal introduction and adherence to firearms per an education in what we, as Americans in a hostile world environment deserve to know, and as armed combatants should strive to attain.

Folks, go to the gym, the REAL gym, and study martial arts, boxing or judo, not SPIN or PILATES.

Have a BMW, or SUV? Like buying petroleum from Saddam Hussein and the Bin Laden supporting Saudis to cart your fat ass and your girlfriendís fat ass around town in heated leather bucket seats?

Buy a bike, get some cardiovascular exercise. Get in shape. Get Lean.

Americans, we need some REAL global awareness.

Newsflash! The world is in a bad way. Some topics at the forefront:
Taiwan relying on the US to defend against an invasion from an expanding Chinese military machine.
The NATO bombing response to the Slovakian and Albanian genocide seen as cowardly, excessive ad cruel by most third world (terrorist) nations.
The disbanded Soviet Unions allegedly (assuming that the former USSR isnít supportive of attacks against the US Ė HA!) uncontrollable black market watershed of nukes and weapons of mass destruction to the world most notorious terrorists and dictatorships.
The Middle East situations, Iraqi opposition, Israel and Palestine at the brink of a world dividing war.
The Omar Bin Ladenistsí war on America with weapons and training that was funded by our taxes, and Saudi oil money (your gas).
The threat of biological weapons coming into play against US cities and the very real presence of plague and disease across the African continent.
The drug cartel totalitarian regimes in Central and Southern America, another world of armed terrorists living south of our borders.
The world financial crises and crashing stock markets.
All at your very front step.

Step up, and meet these challenges head on. The time for passive complacency is over. This is a call to arms.

You'd better believe it, brother
04 Oct 2001
Mr. Guthaede makes a good point. In my workplace, things are the same as before 9/11/01. No one is talking of war. No one cares about the Taliban. No one cares to know the difference between Afghanistan and Pakistan. It sickens me. What is especially scary is a "60 Minutes II" segement I watched last night. Beautiful Afghan girls, probably in their teens, were being interviewed by an English-speaking reporter. These girls spoke better English than I do. We are up against a culture that understands our language, our customs, and can put our thoughts and ideas into OUR OWN WORDS. I, and I think an overwhelming majority of Americans, cannot even fathom uttering a sentence in their native tongues. Something is very, very wrong here.
What they were saying about Osama bin Laden IN ENGLISH was even more frightening. They spoke of naming their sons Osama. They believe he is a noble man.
I write this not to advocate learning the terrorists' language, nor to become Afghani scholars. I write this because I would like for us to stop being complacent and ignorant of the people that hate us. If you do not take up arms, at least click away at your mouse and learn what you can. These people aren't "towel heads" or "camel jockeys." They are human beings with thoughts and minds that are sharp as tacks. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way these minds have been honed to spread evil and destruction. The absolute least we can do is try to learn about them and why they are the way they are, rather than turn a blind eye and advocate the nuclear detonation of "all of 'em."
