A civilization at war
The bloodbath our allies in Spain endured this week proves what I've been saying all
along we're a nation and a civilization at war. Since the blasts blew up 200 people
in Spain, the U.S. government has been working around the clock trying to convince
anyone who will listen that this was not the work of al Qaeda or their allies. The only
problem with that is the fact that al Qaeda's allies are claiming credit for this barbaric
execution of babies, mothers, old people and others.
Get this: The attacks were
launched 2 1/2 years to the day
after 9/11 and they were also 911
days after the attacks on
Now, for their part, the terror
group claiming responsibility said
they killed innocent people in
Spain because they were
America's allies, that "this is part
of settling old accounts with
Spain, the crusader and America's ally in its war against Islam."
The Islamic terror group also
promised to launch "the black winds of death" against America, saying their plans for a
spectacular attack on the United States were now 90 percent complete.
That's chilling news for Americans. That's chilling news for the Olympics coming up
next year, and it's chilling news for civilized people across the world. Tracking down
these thugs is not a police action. It is world war. And the sooner we realize that
simple, but depressing fact, the safer we all will be.
