The invisible Osama

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | When I was a teen, I was in a "gang". Being the smallest and least threatening of the group, I took on an interesting role. The big fellows would start fights with the giants from the other gangs. They'd trade insulting obscenities and end up with a phrase like, "You're so chickens**t, you couldn't beat HIM up." Not being very bright, I accepted all challenges.

I was a teenage red herring.

You'll never defeat your enemy until you admit who they are
Liberals won't face the brutal reality of what's confronting us all. They've displaced their anger with easy pickings, George W. Bush. Even though at times he'd like to behead them, I think most Dems are comfortable that Bush will keep to riding his bike, not bandying swords about.

Lost in diatribes of leftist Bush-bashers are the real cause of the world's growing miseries, fanatical Muslim terrorism. Rarely in the "Bush lied, people died" DNC talking points, does one hear anything close to a reminder of the horrific attacks on us all, in the name of Allah. It's as if the fanatics exist in the minds of liberals in some bizarre world, shielded from being revealed for the evil monsters they are by some secret libiot mind shield.

How many times do we need reminders of the depravity these fiends have brought upon civilization?

Most criticizing Bush never mention the torture and murder of 3,000 innocent Americans on 9/11.

They never mention the unique nightmare of those people, choosing to leap 90 stories or burn an excruciating death, unrecognized and still mingled in WTC rubble.

They never mention people so vicious they are the most prolific slaughterers of…fellow Muslims, including women and children. Just today 21 Muslims and counting were murdered by their brethren not in Iraq, not in Afghanistan, not in Boston, but Egypt. Now, pray tell, what was the purpose of THAT?

They hardly mention the slayers of 100's of innocents and the bashing and burning of embassies over their outrageous sensitivity over a couple of stupid cartoons. Libs quiver at the thought of they themselves publishing them.

A hero is a foot soldier that faces adversity straight on.
Worse, Democrats have taken face away from the glory of the terrorists. Show me recent liberal diatribes against al-Qeada, Hezbullah, Fatah, and Islamic Jihad.

Osama wants the world to know how bad he is. He's in show business, busy making tapes like Snoop Dog ratcheting up the charts.

It's a street thang you know.

If lefties are talking about how Bush is Hitler, they're stealing Osama's thunder.

Freedom of the press is only as good as the people's press for freedom
The media is generally in sync with the Democratic Party. That means they knowingly ignore a portion of the news which may benefit Bush. Instead they harp endlessly with page one stories of Abu Grab, Gitmo, and Plame, hardly mentioning 9/11, beheadings, and tapes that indict Saddam as a potential mass murderer beyond Iraq's borders, not just within.

Yesterday we numbingly watched John Kerry defend his stalwart supporter and CIA traitor Mary McCarthy as a glorified whistle blower. At the same time New York Islam's finest chanted "The mushroom cloud is on its way! The real holocaust is on its way!" in front of the Israeli consulate…This and signs putting a Muslim flag on top of the White House.

Is there laugh after death?
Will the outrage come when Israel is nuked as promised by Ah'm Mad? Will a plasma suitcase nuke taking 100,000 in DC pose a concern for the surviving Demo Congressmen? Will they grow a single brain amongst them before they impeach the president and prevent him from listening to terrorists planning the above?

When, if ever, will the left get it?

The one thing Dems, with media attached at the lip, have in common with Osama is they blame George W. Bush for their miserable lives.

That and the red herrings they share threaten to be the guppy that swallows civilization.

Oh well, my great uncle Phil ate herring with a couple of shots of whiskey almost every day.

He lived to 101.

The rest of the world won't be that lucky.
