20-Year Anniversary of 9/11 

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , on September 15, 2021 by andelino

At 8:46 am Eastern Standard Time, the world changed forever. American Airlines Flight 11 and all passengers on board disintegrated into flames, smoke and dust as the 747 impacted the northern tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. Only 17 minutes later, United Airlines Flight 175 exploded into the southern tower. The world watched in shock and horror as it became clear that America was under attack.

Black smoke plumed from the twin towers, with those trapped inside clinging to the side of the building and hanging out of windows. Onlookers in New York City, and those watching on televisions, witnessed humans plummet to their deaths as desperation to escape the flames drove them to jump from the towers.

At 9:59 a.m., the southern tower collapsed onto itself; the heat from the inferno inside buckled the superstructure. In a matter of moments, the entire tower vanished under a cloud of debris and dust. The north tower fell 29 minutes later. When the dust settled, downtown New York resembled a war zone. A mountain of twisted steel and concrete were the haunting sepulchers of the Twin Towers.

That day, 2,763 people died in New York, including 403 first responders. Another 189 died at the Pentagon and 44 on board United Flight 93 that crashed into a Pennsylvania field. Approximately 21,900 human body parts were found among the 1.8 million tons of rubble. Even the dust plumes that covered New York City were a mixture of toxins, harmful chemicals and human remains.

9/11 is the “day of infamy” for the 21st century. Now 20 years later, the shadow of that day’s events looms larger than ever before. The war of vengeance in Afghanistan that was sparked by those attacks has ended in the most humiliating debacle ever in American history. “This has been the worst foreign-policy disaster in the nation’s history. This terrible defeat was a spectacle seen by the entire world—and they were watching intently! It will mar our history, perhaps for the rest of time.”

Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, is dead. But it was a pyrrhic victory. Radical Islam has won the War on Terror. America has lost. What America and the West failed to understand when confronting terrorism is that ultimately it is not about confronting an individual or a specific terrorist organization, but about confronting a civilization. That civilization is radical imperial Islam.

The goal of Osama bin Laden and other terrorists is to establish a caliphate, a civilization, of Islam ruled by Sharia law. The fervor is supplied by the belief that conquest and terror will usher in their messiah. The events of Sept. 11, 2001, were bin Laden’s masterstroke. But why did the madman choose September 11 for the date of the attack?

Christopher Hitchens wrote in the Guardian in October 2001: “It was on Sept. 11, 1683, that the conquering armies of Islam were met, held, and thrown back at the gates of Vienna. The Ottoman Empire never recovered from the defeat; from then on it was more likely that Christian or Western powers would dominate the Muslim world than the other way around.”

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lawrence Wright also pointed to the significance of this battle to the terrorists: “Al Qaeda bitterly perceived the contradiction embodied by Islam’s long, steady retreat from the gates of Vienna, where on September 11–that now resonant date–in 1683, the king of Poland began the battle that turned back the farthest advance of Muslim armies. For the next 300 years, Islam would be overshadowed by the growth of Western Christian societies.”

We don’t know for certain if that is why bin Laden chose Sept. 11, 2001, but we do know that the Islamic world has a long memory. And events in Afghanistan have proved they will wage a war if it takes 20 years to win, or 200 years.

The Siege of Vienna in 1683 lasted from July 17 to September 12. It was the battle between the Holy Roman Empire and the Ottoman Empire that would determine the future of Europe and the West.

Following the Crusades, the Ottoman Empire began expanding around 1300 and reached its zenith in the 1500s. The empire spanned from Oran in northwest Africa to the Persian Gulf, with the capital at Constantinople (captured in 1423). Byzantium was the first to be consumed, and then Serbia, Greece, Albania and Hungary in turn. By the middle of the 16th century, Suleiman the Magnificent was driving northward through the Danube Valley and reached Vienna in 1529. He was defeated, but the Ottomans would make one final push in 1683 to capture Vienna, the heart of the Holy Roman Empire.

During the Ottoman ascent, Europe languished under Catholic control and from internal conflict. Technologically inferior and numerically decimated by the bubonic plague, Europe could not defeat the Islamic advance unless they were united, Pope Pius II warned, saying: “Who will unite the Genoese and the Aragonese? Who will reconcile the Germans with the Hungarians and Bohemians? If you lead a small army against the Turks you will easily be overcome; if a large one it will soon fall into confusion.”

Holy Roman Emperor Charles V responded to the Turkish threat and, as the archduke of Austria, was most concerned with the protection of Vienna. Charles V, in alliance with the pope, used the Islamic threat to expand the empire’s power, familial land holdings, and influence in Eastern Europe. The Ottoman threat actually aided the rise of the Holy Roman Empire in Europe and helped solidify its power.

Leopold I ascended the Habsburg throne in 1658 as Holy Roman emperor and, prompted by Pope Innocent XI, launched a war against the now ailing Ottoman Empire in 1683. The Ottomans were able to push back against the Europeans and began a siege of Vienna. The Ottomans began to tunnel through the first defensive wall and were threatening the very city itself.

Innocent XI was able to persuade the Polish King John III, or King Sobieski, the electors of Saxony and Bavaria, and 30 other Germans princes to create a relief army of 80,000 troops. The climactic battle was fought between September 11-12 and lasted 15 hours. Led by Charles of Lorraine and the Polish king, they swept away the Ottoman attackers. Some say it was the largest cavalry charge in history.

This was the closest Islam ever came to conquering the heart of Christian Europe, but the victory by the Holy Roman Empire and allies stopped the threat of conquest until our modern times. Afterward, Innocent XI made a Holy League including the Holy Roman Empire, Poland and Russia to drive the Muslims out of Europe.

Sept. 11, 1683, was a pivot point in Western civilization: “Islam began its long descent in power, and Europe began its long and steady rise to power.”

This history points to what the Bible prophesies will happen in the near future. How is something that happened in 1683 related to your future? “History becomes prophecy. Not all prophecy is history. But a lot of history becomes prophecy. History prophesies the fate of nations, whether they will thrive or collapse! This is ‘a law of history.’”

History is set to repeat itself again. The Bible says that there will be a clash between the resurrected Holy Roman Empire and an aggressive Islamic power, led by Iran, in the near future. Only this time the Europeans will not be on the defensive, they will be going on the offensive! Daniel 11:40 prophesies “at the time of the end” the king of the south will “push” at the king of the north, who will respond with a ferocious attack. This king of the south is undoubtedly the Iran-led radical Muslims.

Soon they will push at the king of the north, the so-called Holy Roman Empire—the same religious power that was behind the Crusades. And that push will surely revolve around Jerusalem.

Just 25 years ago, nobody could have even imagined two world powers coming out of the Middle East and Europe. But God knew exactly what would happen. Nobody but God could have inspired these prophecies. Everybody can see these two great powers today.

The disaster in Afghanistan has made this even more clear. On the 20th anniversary of 9/11 we see the rapid decline of America, we see an emboldened and victorious radical Islam, and a European continent in crisis, yearning for a strong leader to unite them.

This anniversary can be depressing, and indeed it is a bitter moment of reflection for Americans who love their country. However, we can have hope in these dark days. The Bible does prophesy terrible events to come to pass, but it also prophesies of the wonderfully bright future that comes afterward, when all mankind, including the 2,996 who died on Sept. 11, 2001, will have an opportunity to experience lasting peace and abundant joy.

Regardless of how much that the media and the left try to hide the truth, America is going to soon get reacquainted with radical Islam after Biden’s surrender to the Taliban put Afghanistan back in the terrorism business and emboldened those who hate us for our way of life and who are chafing at the bit to carry out a sequel to 9/11.

Twenty Years, What Happens Next?


Myth of a Friendly Taliban

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 30, 2021 by andelino

“We’ve discussed a lot with the Taliban. They’ve been cooperative ….”

“We’re in constant contact with the Taliban, working to ensure civilians have safe passage ….”

“We’ve made an agreement with the Taliban ….”

“I also urged the previous Afghan government to engage in diplomacy, to seek a political settlement with the Taliban.”

The above statements were all made by “Fraud-In-Chief” Joe Biden during his three press conferences over the course of a week, suggesting the Taliban is a new and reformed potential diplomatic partner of the United States.

Then pressed on whether or not the U.S. “trusts” the Taliban, and if it would apply sanctions “if they misbehave,” Biden replied: “So far, they have, by-and-large, followed through on what they said. It depends on the conduct.” This theme has been carried throughout the press conferences, with sentiments such as: a Taliban uniting and providing for the well-being of the Afghans; cooperation and constant contact; engaging in diplomacy; possibility of economic assistance and trade.

Are we witnessing a new, responsible, “prodigal son” Taliban that deserves a second chance? Has there been any evidence of “misbehavior”? After all, as Biden emphasized in his August 20 press conference, America’s relationship with the Taliban “will depend on how well they treat women and girls, how they treat their citizens.”

Let’s look at how well America’s new potential partner has treated Afghanistan’s citizens over the past several weeks.

Bloomberg reported two weeks ago that in parts of Afghanistan, the Taliban are going door-to-door, “compiling lists of women and girls aged between 12- and 45 years old for their fighters to forcibly marry.” Other reports affirm that girls as young as 12 are being turned into sex slaves for Taliban fighters, seen as qhanimat, or “spoils of war.”

Village women are also being forcibly drafted to prepare food for Taliban militants. In an incident reported by the Telegraph, Taliban fighters in northern Afghanistan last week set a woman on fire for “bad cooking,” an incident described by former Afghan judge Najla Ayoubi. Several weeks earlier, in July, another woman, whose story was detailed to CNN by her 25-year-old daughter, was unable to provide food for Taliban fighters due to their family poverty. She was summarily beaten to death with the butts of AK-47s, and grenades were tossed into the house.

Numerous reports detail the ongoing Taliban door-to-door hunt and execution of any they consider enemies, such as Afghans who supported the American war effort. One such individual, a translator, had his U.S. Department of Defense identification card melted into his chest, his arms removed, was hung in the street, and his whole family killed, all but his 10-year-old daughter, who was handed over to leadership.

Other such individuals on the Taliban hit list include reporters, such as a Deutsche Welle journalist and editor, who after the Taliban failed to find him, had one member of his family killed and another seriously injured. The reporter is now in Germany, and his relatives are on the run. Thus far, the homes of at least three Deutsche Welle journalists have been raided. And a translator and contributor to another German publication, Die Welt, was executed in the middle of the street by men the report states were “presumably Taliban.”

“The Afghans we were with in February, were all executed outside their homes in Kandahar on Thursday.” — James Glancy (@jaglancy) August 15, 2021

Then there is the Taliban hunt for Christians. The following official statement was put out by Leaders in the Underground Church in Afghanistan:

The Taliban has a hit list of known Christians they are targeting to pursue and kill. The U.S. Embassy is defunct and there is no longer a safe place for believers to take refuge. All borders to neighboring countries are closed and all flights to and from have been halted, with the exception of private planes. People are fleeing into the mountains looking for asylum. They are fully reliant on God, who is the only one who can and will protect them.

The Taliban are going door-to-door taking women and children. The people must mark their house with an “X” if they have a girl over 12 years old, so that the Taliban can take them. If they find a young girl and the house was not marked they will execute the entire family. If a married woman 25 years or older has been found, the Taliban promptly kill her husband, do whatever they want to her, and then sell her as a sex slave.

Husbands and fathers have given their wives and daughters guns and told them that when the Taliban come, they can choose to kill them or kill themselves—it is their choice.

The Middle East media ministry SAT-7 reported, Taliban militants are “pulling people off public transport and killing them on the spot if they’re Christians or considered ethnically unpure. We’re hearing from reliable sources that the Taliban demand people’s phones, and if they find a downloaded Bible on your device, they will kill you immediately.”

The list of crimes goes on and on. Amnesty International reported that in July, “Taliban fighters tortured and murdered at least nine ethnic Hazara men after capturing the province of Ghazni.” One victim, according to multiple witnesses, had the muscles sliced off his arms. Another individual was hauled away to an uncertain fate for displaying an Afghan flag on his car dashboard. A group of young Afghan youths were held at gunpoint and flogged across their necks for the “crime” of wearing jeans. And all Afghan women have been forced out of civil servant jobs, to be replaced by men.

Schooling for girls and women is coming to an end. The sight of burning schools has returned. In one reported case, a girls’ boarding school has been hurriedly burning its records to protect the identities of attendees. In addition, mandatory Burka-wearing has returned—with reports of women not being able to acquire them fast enough and the garments reaching sky-high prices. A distressing image made headlines last week of parents clutching their daughter, lying in a pool of her own blood, after the young woman was publicly executed for not wearing a Burka.

Periodic reminder for those who argue the Taliban has changed:

“Footage showing Taliban fighters beating Afghans who worked as interpreters for international forces.” — Heshmat Alavi (@HeshmatAlavi) August 23, 2021

Consider the résumés of the individuals leading the new, “moderate” Taliban. Hibatullah Akhundzada heads the movement; he first joined in the early 1990s. He is seen more as a spiritual head rather than military leader, authoring many religious fatwa rulings, including those that relate to public executions. His son is well-known for joining a large-scale suicide bombing in the Helmand province in 2017, packing three stolen U.S. Humvees full of explosives and ramming them into Afghan military outposts.

Underneath Akhundzada are three deputies, one of which, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, was a co-founder of the Taliban. He presently serves as the political head of the Taliban, and was the deputy leader to the Taliban’s primary founder, Mullah Mohammed Omar, who closely supported Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda two decades ago, a support that led to the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan after 9/11.

The second deputy leader is Sirajuddin Haqqani, head of the terrorist Haqqani network, Afghanistan’s so-called “most-feared militants,” famous for its suicide bombings. Haqqani is personally responsible for a number of attacks, one of which took place near a school in 2008, killing seven children. He has links to al Qaeda, which has cooperated with the Haqqani network.

The third deputy is Mullah Yaqoob, the son of the Taliban’s founder, Omar. He served as head of the Taliban in 2020 while Akhundzada recovered from covid-19. During that period, he failed to fulfill a pledge renouncing al Qaeda.

Further down the chain is one of the top commanders who conquered Kabul, Gholam Ruhani. He was an inmate at Guantanamo Bay prison for six years, where he bragged to a prison guard, “We’ll get you on the outside.” Then there’s the Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, who sternly warned the U.S. that there would be consequences” if the U.S. dared to stay beyond the August 31 withdrawal deadline.

These are the individuals with whom the United States is in “constant contact” and “cooperation.” This is the “new, moderate” Taliban, much-removed from the terrorist organization of past decades. Yet its leadership makes up the original founders of the Taliban. According to Biden in his August 20 conference, we have a new, clean-slate situation in Afghanistan “with al Qaeda gone.” Yet that is ignoring the ties to al Qaeda of the current Taliban leadership.

The narrative is that “the Taliban have so far sought to strike a more moderate tone.” But have we witnessed “moderation” the last few weeks? Such a delusional assessment is simply flabbergasting. And we’ve heard this all before from the Taliban—just before 9/11.

Notice what Spectator published in its article titled “Don’t Be Fooled, the Taliban Hasn’t Changed”:

Twenty-five years ago, when the Taliban took over Kabul, they declared that it was not going to take revenge, instead offering amnesty to anyone who had worked for the former government. The exact statement assured the population that the “Taliban will not take revenge, we have no personal rancor.” Soon after that promise was made, the ousted President Mohammed Najibullah was castrated and strung up from a lamppost at the center of Kabul. The Taliban have always returned to their core identity and beliefs.

Taliban are in the streets acting as “guarantors of public order.” This is exactly the message that Mullah Omar tried to impart in 1996, telling residents of Kabul to resist the temptation to flee and that the Taliban will keep them safe. They, of course, lied. But this should be no surprise—Sharia law is often interpreted as allowing for lying to the “infidel”—and who more than the “Great Satan,” America?

A reporter asked Biden at a press conference earlier this week: “Because the United States is now negotiating with the Taliban over airport access and such, do you now trust them?”

Biden replied: “Look, the Taliban has to make a fundamental decision. Is the Taliban going to attempt to be able to unite and provide for the well-being of the people of Afghanistan? If it does, it’s going to need everything from additional help in terms of economic assistance, trades, and a whole range of things. The Taliban has said, we’ll see whether they mean it or not. So far, they have, by-and-large, followed through on what they said.”

Given what we’ve seen over the past several weeks—let alone years—the fact that this is still presented as a “we’ll have to wait and see” scenario is shocking.

“Taliban is firing at the crowd outside Kabul airport. I thought Biden and Milley said everything was under control?” — Ian Miles Cheong @ (@stillgray) August 19, 2021

It would seem, from the position of the Biden administration, there are no signs of “misbehavior” that would call into question a diplomatic relationship between the United States and the new, friendly Taliban—a relationship contingent upon “how well they treat women and girls, how they treat their citizens.”

What is resoundingly obvious to the world is that the United States—the “number one superpower”—is being played for a fool. The Taliban have fully embraced their opportunity to humiliate the United States. In one recent example, staging a photo shoot with their troops, dressed in their new American military gear and weapons, raising the Taliban flag in mockery of the iconic American World War II image from Iwo Jima.

“The Taliban dressed up in American military gear we left behind when we fled the country and staged their own mock Iwo Jima photo.” — Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) August 21, 2021

And China’s official state-controlled Xinhua news agency released a cartoonish video mocking the fact that after 20 years, $2 trillion, and 2,300 soldiers’ lives, the U.S. has successfully replaced the Taliban regime with a Taliban regime and has seen the number of terrorist groups in the region increase from single digits to now over 20. “America is back,” the news network mocked of Joe Biden’s motto.

It’s a painful truth. 20 years after America entered Afghanistan to deal with a Taliban-backed al Qaeda, the Taliban is now back in power, only this time armed with billions of dollars’ worth of high-tech U.S. military equipment and firepower.

Clearly, what we have seen just over the past two months—and the past two decades—shows that the Taliban cannot be trusted. But conversely, what the world has also seen is that the U.S. cannot be trusted. As one Turkish general summed it up: “The real problem with having the Americans as your allies is you never know when they will turn around and stab themselves in the back.”

A burqa-clad CNN reporter in Afghanistan, perhaps unwittingly, characterized the floundering, nonsensical American position best, as she stood alongside Taliban militants outside the U.S. Embassy in Kabul: “They’re just chanting ‘Death to America,’ but they seem friendly at the same time. It’s utterly bizarre.”

Utterly bizarre—certainly—but not the behavior of the Taliban. Rather, the behavior of the United States. The U.S. is bizarrely leading the way into a post-American world, making repeatedly foolish, ignorant, blind and self-destructive decisions. Why?

We were warned of what we are seeing now in Afghanistan 20 years ago, when America first entered the conflict—despite the optimistic reporting at the time that we were witnessing the “last days” of the Taliban. It was a similar case just following World War II, when it was said “America has won its last war.”

Since then, the world’s number one superpower has witnessed a string of humiliating incidents, withdrawals, failed states and tragic defeats against much weaker forces. These conflicts—Korea, Vietnam, the Bay of Pigs, Somalia, Iraq, Syria, Libya—have ultimately empowered our enemies. Now, after the most expensive one of them all, Afghanistan, America is left desperately peddling the notion of the Taliban as reformed moderates, all the while pleading with them to allow safe evacuation.

Luke 21 details end-time events culminating in the return of Jesus Christ. The time just prior to His Second Coming is described as the “times of the Gentiles”—a post-American world of vicious, dog-eat-dog powers vying for world domination. In many Bible chapters detailing these end-time prophecies, the term used to describe America is nowhere to be found.

That is because the nation will become a nonentity on the world scene. That may have been hard to believe barely a year ago. Now, though—especially with what we are seeing in Afghanistan—the picture of a post-American world is becoming clear. Mighty America has fallen, and as the Bible describes, though it currently has the world’s most powerful military, the pride in America’s power has been broken (Leviticus 26:19).

Despite the Biden administration’s platitudes, there is assuredly no hope or trust that can be had in the Taliban. And there is also no hope or trust for Afghanistan in America.

Forever War. What Now?

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 24, 2021 by andelino

On August 31, the last United States troops will withdraw from Afghanistan, officially ending the 20-year “forever war.” What now?

Fraud-In-Chief Joe Biden has strongly defended the removal of America’s troops, saying in a speech on July 8: “We did not go to Afghanistan to nation-build. It’s the right and the responsibility of the Afghan people alone to decide their future and how they want to run their country.”

Biden also said that the goal of the mission was to eliminate Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda’s ability to export terrorist attacks around the world. But Afghanistan and its people are in the same situation today as when U.S. troops first landed in 2001. Afghanistan is being systematically controlled by the Taliban, which now claims to rule 85 percent of the country, including most of the strategic borderlands.

The country has been in a state of conflict for nearly 60 years. Throughout America’s war in Afghanistan, the tide of influence has ebbed and flowed between the two sides. The “responsibility of the Afghan people” will most likely result in a civil war between the Taliban and other factions.

“I will not send another generation of Americans to war in Afghanistan with no expectation to achieve a different outcome,” Biden said. So what was the outcome of the war in Afghanistan? Or even the war in Iraq? Defeat. The “War on Terror” has only destabilized the region and made the world more dangerous than it was in 2001. Twenty years forward, any success gained in Afghanistan or Iraq has been lost. The true victor of the “War on Terror” has been Iran.

On April 9, 2003, the image of Saddam Hussein’s statue in Firdos Square, Baghdad, being torn down was broadcast around the world. In a short three weeks, the U.S. Army and its allies had crushed Saddam’s army and the dictator was on the run. Victory was in the air. However, no one anticipated the chaos and struggles that were about to grip the country.

Now that Iraq has been taken out of the picture, Iran is even closer to becoming the reigning king of the Middle East. It may seem shocking, given the U.S. presence in the region right now, but in pursuit of its goal, Iran will probably take over Iraq. At least, it will have a heavy influence over the Iraqi people.

During the war in Iraq, it soon became clear that the 18 million Shiite majority in Iraq (versus 9 million Sunnis) took their orders from Iran. The anti-American insurgency raged in the backdrop of an internal civil war between Shiite and Sunni. The Sunnis were initially led by Abu Massab al-Zarqawi who would later found the Islamic State and the Shiites by cleric Muqtada al-Sadr.

The Shiites were funded and supplied by Iran, which operated death squads inside Baghdad to persecute the Sunnis. The U.S. Army increasingly found explosively formed penetrators (EFPS) from Iran within southern Iraq; these EFPS were a more deadly type of an improvised explosive device. They melted the armored plating of the vehicle and shot the molten metal and shrapnel inside, maiming and killing hundreds of Americans.

Gen. David Petraeus, then the troop commander in Iraq, testified to the Senate in 2007 about “Iran’s malign influence.” In 2008, General Petraeus was shown a phone with a text message from the now dead Quds Force commander, Qassem Suleimani: “General Petraeus, you should know that I, Qassem Suleimani, control the policy for Iran with respect to Iraq, Lebanon, Gaza and Afghanistan. And indeed, the ambassador in Baghdad is a Quds Force member. The individual who’s going to replace him is a Quds Force member.” It was obvious to everyone who was really controlling the Shiites in Iraq.

But all of this was unknown in 2003. Iraq was a dangerous part of the equation, but not the head of the snake. America has known for years who “the world’s most significant state sponsor of terrorism” was. But we lacked the will to deal with Iran. State-sponsored terrorism became deeply entrenched in the 1990s, and our leaders did almost nothing to combat it.

Iran is the head of the terrorist snake. Even when former President George W. Bush knew Iran was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans and was actively undermining American forces in Iraq, he pursued a hands-off policy toward Iran, other than imposing a few economic sanctions. President Bush knew the American people would not support a war against Iran. Every president since has lacked the will to confront Iran.

Fraud-In-Chief Biden’s latest announcement only confirms America does not have the will or strength to protect the hard-won successes in Iraq and Afghanistan. These conflicts have cost the United States 60,276 troops killed or wounded. Financially, these wars have cost the U.S. government and taxpayers $6.4 trillion. All of those sacrifices and trillions of dollars have eventually given Iran control of Iraq, and the Taliban control of Afghanistan.

America’s failure in the region actually increased Iran’s power. Afghanistan, which borders Iran, will play a key role in the future. With the complete American withdrawal, Afghanistan will most likely dissolve into violent civil war, opening up a key window of opportunity for Taliban’s to step in. America’s withdrawal will only increase the speed at which this will come to pass.

In 1991, Operation Desert Storm pitted the American superpower against Saddam Hussein’s army, which had seized Kuwait. The air war and the brief ground campaign showcased America’s mighty strength. Nearly 700,000 U.S. troops took part, with 299 killed. In only 37 days, the U.S. and its allies launched 116,000 combat air sorties and dropped 88,500 tons of bombs on Iraq. The military launched 297 tomahawk cruise missiles (each costing $1.3 million) at military targets. It took the U.S. and allied ground forces only 100 hours to completely route Saddam’s army.

It was a classic military invasion: the use of air power to gain aerial mastery, the slow build-up of armor and infantry to launch an invasion on a single front, and the restraint of focusing on military targets by air assets. Despite this mighty display of power, America could not remove Hussein! It lacked the political will to follow up on military success.

After Sept. 11, 2001, the U.S. sent troops to Afghanistan to hunt down Osama bin Laden and overthrow al Qaeda. Instead of sending overwhelming force, the focus again was on the use of special forces and air power to work with local fighters to cause governmental change. This began the habit of America relying on special forces. Despite the troops’ successes in their individual objectives, the mission floundered for 20 years without a clear definition of what victory in Afghanistan would look like.

For Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, the U.S. military again tried the strategy of sending a smaller, more technologically advanced force to quickly overwhelm the enemy through speed and surprise. Commanding general Tommy Franks ran the war from a mobile command center, a shipping container with several screens, supported by hundreds of support staff. General Franks would be shown live drone feeds, a military lawyer beside him advising if it were legal or not to kill the target, and deciding whether or not to pull the trigger. It was a new kind of warfare.

The invasion used only 177,000 troops and toppled Hussein’s government in three weeks. But America’s troops were drawn into a guerilla war, forced to abandon their technological edge and fight house to house, hand to hand. The Chechens, who fought with the Sunnis against the Americans, had learned from fighting the Russians that the way to defeat a superior force was to draw them into urban ”guerilla war.” It was a war of self-imposed, confusing legal restraint that turned into a war of attrition.

Countries cursed with population patterns that afford fewer safeguards are more vulnerable to invasion unless blessed with benign neighbors (as Canada is) or topographical barriers (such as those that shelter Switzerland). Syria, Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq and Iran are even more vulnerable, because most residents occupy capital cities—Damascus, Tel Aviv, Amman, Cairo, Riyadh, Kuwait City, Baghdad, and Teheran—plus a sprinkling of other centers such as Hama, Jerusalem, Alexandria, Jiddah, Basra, Meshed and Isphahan. Even one well-placed tactical nuclear weapon delivered by an aircraft, missile, motor vehicle or other means might instantaneously put any of those countries politically, economically and militarily out of commission.

Just one nuclear bomb destroying the major population center of a nation like Iran, and the nation would be “out of commission.” That is a kind of war we have not yet seen in this world: “a nuclear strike in conjunction with a ground invasion.” Whether or not nuclear capabilities are utilized, this whirlwind attack would shock the world!

While there will always be minor skirmishes in the region, this may well be the next major conflict in the Middle East.

True Lesson of Afghanistan

The world watched in terror, live, as 19 Islamist terrorists flew three hijacked jetliners into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon, and a fourth crashed in Pennsylvania. With the rest of the world, a changed world, we watched it on television in shock. That day, 2,996 Americans were murdered. Now images are out there of the carnage being wrought by the same Islamist regime that helped perpetrate 9/11. And now, 20 years into a war spawned by that atrocity—which is ending with even more atrocities—we see how bad it is getting—and how bad it’s going to get.

The 9/11 terrorist attacks shocked Americans into action. Church attendance spiked, patriotism surged, political parties temporarily set aside their differences, allies lined up, and President George W. Bush delivered a rousing speech, saying, “The terrorists are traitors to their own faith, trying, in effect, to hijack Islam itself. Our enemy is a radical network of terrorists and every government that supports them. Our war on terror begins with al Qaeda, but it does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated.”

President Bush targeted al Qaeda, the Islamist terrorist group led by Osama bin Laden, and told Afghanistan’s Taliban regime to hand him over and expel members of his group. The Taliban refused, and on Oct. 7, 2001, United States forces invaded Afghanistan. Operation Enduring Freedom forced them from power. By Dec. 17, 2001, Time magazine ran a cover reading “The Last Days of the Taliban.” In the 20 years since those words were written, the U.S. has spent $2.3 trillion on the War in Afghanistan. It has sacrificed more than 6,000 American soldiers and military contractors. The goal was to stop the Taliban from returning to power.

Now the Biden administration has abruptly pulled the plug. “We did not go to Afghanistan to nation build,” Joe Biden said on July 8. “It’s the right and the responsibility of the Afghan people alone to decide their future and how they want to run their country.” He then set a September 11 deadline for troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Many people immediately thought of the historically shameful and embarrassing American retreat from Saigon, Vietnam, 46 years ago, and the iconic image of dozens of people crowding onto a roof to try to board a single helicopter to escape. When asked about it, Biden said, “There’s going to be no circumstance where you see people being lifted off the roof of an embassy of the United States from Afghanistan. It is not at all comparable.” That was in July. Now it’s August. We are now seeing U.S. helicopters reportedly lifting people off of the roof of an embassy of the United States in Afghanistan.

The U.S. military left Bagram Airfield in the dead of night without even notifying the Afghan military and government that we helped set up. We left so fast that we left behind thousands of civilian vehicles and hundreds of armored vehicles. Now the Taliban has conquered the capital of Afghanistan and terrorist insurgents are posing with ammunition, Humvee’s and even Black Hawk helicopters.

So much for “our war on terror will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated.” After 20 years of war, the only thing the U.S. has accomplished in Afghanistan is to provide the terrorists who blew up the World Trade Center with new and better weapons for future attacks and to show the world we really are as weak as we seem.

The official newspaper of the Chinese Communist Party said America’s defeat “proves that Washington is an ‘unreliable partner’ that always abandons its partners or allies to seek self-interest.” Both American allies and its enemies know that the most powerful military on Earth does not have the will to defeat a group of nomadic tribesmen. This fact will certainly embolden Iran, China, Russia and other enemies to stand against America. And why wouldn’t it? What a shameful debacle we are perpetrating.

“In the unholy armory of the enemies of the West, their single-most important weapon is their understanding that the West is no longer willing to do what it needs to do to defend itself,” wrote political commentator Melanie Phillips in The Rout of America.” “It is no longer willing to be in it for the long haul. It no longer has the stomach for a fight. In baleful contrast, jihadis take the longest possible view. They have been waging holy war against the enemies of Islam—as they view them—since the seventh century; and for them this holy war won’t end until the whole world is under Islamic rule or the world itself ends, whichever comes first.”

Now those jihadis are taking over Afghanistan, promising their fighters “wives” as young as 15 from among the people they conquer, and executing Afghans who helped America and its allies in an attempt to build a better nation for themselves. What the whole world is witnessing is the moral, societal, political, financial, military disintegration of the American empire!

This disintegration has intensified dramatically in these 20 years. The fact that the Biden administration unilaterally surrendered to the Taliban is living proof of how far America has fallen. The Afghanistan catastrophe is an abject, shameful dishonor for America. Our nation has lost 2,448 soldiers and spent $273 million per day every day for 20 years on that war—a total of over $2 trillion. Yet our soldiers were evacuated in the darkness of night to leave this nation to barbarians gathering up girls age 15 and even younger and giving them to their fighters as “wives.”

After we hastily pulled out, it took the Islamist terrorists a matter of mere days to conquer the nation. Now America is being overrun in Kabul even before we can finish retreating from it. We are scrambling to try to get even the last of our own people out of there—a replay of the humiliation we suffered when we pulled out of Saigon, Vietnam. Now, as then, millions of people are going to be greatly persecuted and killed. Children and women are going to be abused, raped and murdered.

And America will leave behind one of the biggest terrorist nations in the world. Especially because of the air base, jets, armored vehicles, ammunition and other weapons and equipment America just abandoned—not to mention all the Afghan soldiers we trained who proved that they have no loyalty to anyone but themselves. What a miserable deed by the American “superpower”! This is as shameful as anything America has ever done.

America is not just declining, it is dying. Other powers around the world see this clearly. They are taking advantage of this and preparing to replace American dominance with their own dominance. America is being destroyed before our eyes. Many are now in a state of open despair.

There is a sore lesson staring us in the face here. It points not just to the Afghanistan war started 20 years ago—but even back to Vietnam, and Korea and even World War II before that!

America’s humiliation in Afghanistan at the hands of Taliban fighters should alarm us all—and wake us up to a terrifying truth. Why is this happening? Because, as Leviticus 26:19 warns, God has broken the pride of our power. Yes, God is punishing us for our sins! That is why we can have such overwhelming military power, yet be so pathetically weak.

Then in verse 20, God warns, “Your strength shall be spent in vain.” Does anything more graphically illustrate this than America waging an impotent war for two full decades at such high cost and evacuating in such disgrace?

The radical left want to blame all our troubles on things like climate change. But that is just a diabolical distraction from the lesson God is showing us so clearly: “We as a people are disobeying God and facing the dire consequences. And because we refuse to acknowledge this, these wretched events are going to get far worse before this is over.”

Americans are willfully ignorant of the facts. It is God who gave America its power in the first place. It is God whom Americans have turned their backs on. And it is God who is allowing America to decline and who is actively punishing us in order to show us our sins.

There is a lesson in the Afghanistan catastrophe, if only we will learn it this bitter lesson, repent from our sins, and turn to God.

Failed Afghan War

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on June 20, 2020 by andelino

President Donald Trump signed an agreement with the Taliban affirming a “temporary truce” and a full-scale American “withdrawal” from Afghanistan. After 18 years of war, spending $1 trillion supporting the war effort, and the death of 2,300 American soldiers and more than 150,000 Afghans, America has conceded “defeat.”

America’s “retreat” from Afghanistan has been a long-standing desire. In November 2001, when the U.S. first started its war in Afghanistan after the September 11 attacks, it was predicted: “The U.S. won’t be the victors in this war. As we now examine the facts emerging from this war, we can see unequivocally that the terrorist snake will survive America’s aggression, head intact and stronger than ever.” 

Now, after America’s “negotiated” defeat in Afghanistan, this prediction rings louder than ever.

According to the New York Times, the “peace deal” signed with the Taliban, one of America’s main “enemies” throughout the 18-year failed war, “affirms” that the U.S. will withdraw all of its 12,000 soldiers from Afghanistan within the next 14 months.

According to the Associated Press, immediately after the signing, America will reduce its troops to approximately 8,600 over a period of weeks. However, the U.S. will keep warplanes in the country in case the Taliban renews its “offensive” on the Afghan government, along with a small force to “protect” its embassy.

What did America receive in this deal? “A promise of peace” like so many previous failed ones.

The peace deal calls for “negotiations” between the Taliban and the Afghan government which should eventually lead to a nationwide “ceasefire, though many experts question whether the two parties would ever agree to “share” power. The Taliban, guilty of suicide bombings and rocket attacks against Afghan and American troops, also agreed to not harbor terrorist groups, like al Qaeda, within Afghanistan’s borders.

In essence, the U.S. negotiated with “terrorists” and made a deal with the “enemy.”

The “War in Afghanistan” quickly became a quagmire for the U.S. As expenses and death rates increased, America increasingly wanted out of the miry mess. Nevertheless, no president was willing to completely withdraw from Afghanistan because each feared underestimating the threat and risking another terrorist attack on American soil.

The motivations to stay were largely political. Because of these factors, American presidents have wavered: “To stay, or not to stay—that was the question.” As a result, the War in Afghanistan became one “defined by half measures.”

On Sept. 20, 2001, then U.S. President George W. Bush said that the “leadership of al Qaeda has great influence in Afghanistan and supports the Taliban regime in controlling most of that country.” If not for al Qaeda’s support, the Taliban could not have controlled the government from 1996 to 2001.

When American troops quickly ousted it from power and forced it into hiding, the Taliban leadership fled to the Pakistani city of Quetta to regroup. While there, it received financial and military support from the Pakistani government and al Qaeda.

With international help and a quick victory, the U.S. installed a new government in Afghanistan. But in 2006, the Taliban returned from Pakistan in a ferocious comeback. Within a couple of years, Afghanistan was again in turmoil.

Afghanistan’s economy was in shambles. Its insufficient infrastructure, nonexistent industry and poverty-stricken agricultural community led many local Afghans to blame the newly established government. As a result, many joined the Taliban as “jihadist insurgents.”

America responded with a troop surge in 2009 that peaked in 2011 with just over 100,000 troops in Afghanistan at one time. That year, Osama bin Laden was killed in “Operation Neptune Spear.” A poll later that year found that the majority of Americans believed the U.S. had accomplished its purpose in Afghanistan.

Then President Barack Obama declared victory and ordered a mass withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. Troop numbers plummeted to about 8,400 in 2016.

“Power players all over the Middle East were watching carefully as America showed a will to fight, and then quickly tired of the whole affair,” Vali Naser writes in The Dispensable Nation. “Our only goal seemed to be getting out, first of Afghanistan and then the whole region.”

The number one enemy in America’s eyes was gone, and ever since, the U.S. has been “begging for peace.” The American people have simply lost the “will to continue”; they want out of Afghanistan. However, terrorism still runs “rampant” in the desert nation and the real head of the snake remains “intact, and stronger than ever.”

“While the U.S. wants to eliminate terrorism and is becoming much more aggressive in trying to do so, its efforts will fall short. The Taliban is just one tendril of the monster. The real head of the snake of terrorism is likely a potent Middle Eastern country leading a coalition of nations united by radical Islam.”

America claimed that al Qaeda was the power behind the Taliban and the 9/11 bombings; however, recent findings reveal Iran to be the “true source of the terrorist power.”

In November 2019, the U.S. State Department released a report that drew special attention to the “al Qaeda-Iran” relationship. It states: “Tehran continued to allow an al Qaeda facilitation network to operate in Iran, which sends fighters and money to conflict zones in Afghanistan and Syria, and it has extended sanctuary to al Qaeda members residing in the country.”

Later in November, the “Central Intelligence Agency” declassified a large trove of documents from the 2011 raid, during which bin Laden was killed, detailing how Hamza, Bin Laden’s son, was sheltered in Iran.

According to the Atlantic, one 19-page document showed how negotiations between al Qaeda and Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in Tehran discussed the funding and arming of al Qaeda members to strike American targets.

Several sources agree that evidence suggests this al Qaeda-Iran relationship even goes back two decades, before the September 11 attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center, which Iran also played a role in planning.

While America was busy pursuing al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan, the real threat, Iran, was free to continue expanding its military and funding terrorism throughout the Middle East.

We have spent trillions of dollars and our young men have given their lives in the Afghanistan war while Iran is reaping the benefits. This is what happens when you don’t “destroy” terrorism.

In 1994, then Secretary of State Warren Christopher called Iran “the world’s most significant state sponsor of terrorism.” Most sources claim that Iran spends $1 billion a year supporting terrorism; others say this number could be as high as $16 billion annually.

No other nation in the Middle East has the power, determination or resources to be this power. No other nation in the Middle East is as pushy as Iran. Iran is the king of the “Middle East” and the king of “radical Islam.”

On February 26, Al Jazeera wrote, “After Vietnam and Iraq, the U.S. seems to have lost its third major war and the longest of them all.” It has been said after World War II that “the United States has not won any war!” That forecast seems now to confirm that America will not win its war on terrorism.

“If the Iranian leadership were eliminated, the whole Mideast would change radically for the better. Sadly, history shows that will not happen.”

At the time of America’s invasion of Afghanistan, the U.S. State Department had listed five regimes that sponsor terrorism: “Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Sudan and Cuba.” Afghanistan was not on the list. America dealt with the effect and ignored the cause.

ISBN: 9780804798181

By fixating on individual terrorist entities, the U.S. has gone after the pawns instead of the king. As a result, America’s strength has been spent in vain. This catastrophic failure of American policy was prophesied with remarkable accuracy in the Bible.

In Leviticus 26:19-20 it says, “I will break down your stubborn pride and make the sky above you like iron and the ground beneath you like bronze. Your strength will be spent in vain, because your soil will not yield its crops, nor will the trees of your land yield their fruit.”

“The Afghanistan Papers,” a confidential trove of more than 2,000 pages of government documents, showed the extent of America’s divided approach and its failure to go after the real threat. The reports revealed U.S. Army generals saying, We were devoid of a fundamental understanding of Afghanistan—we didn’t know what we were doing. We didn’t have the foggiest notion of what we were undertaking.” 

One of the generals said that as a result of U.S. bureaucratic “dysfunction” in Afghanistan, thousands of Americans lost their lives “in vain.” Since 2001, more than 775,000 U.S. troops have been deployed to Afghanistan. According to U.S. Defense Department figures, 2,300 died and 20,589 were wounded in action. In the same period, the U.S. spent nearly $1 trillion, according to inflation-adjusted estimates.

All of the effort, money and manpower the U.S. has expended in its 18-year war in Afghanistan has been “in vain” and has only led to America negotiating its own “defeat.”

Our ultimate success will be determined by our relationship with God. If God is for us, we can’t lose. But if God is against us, we can’t win. We should repent and become a true superpower! But even if we don’t change our evil ways, this is all leading directly to the return of Jesus Christ.

That is the best possible news this world could ever hear! This evil world of “terrorism and wars” is about to end forever. It will then be replaced by a world full of prosperity and peace.

Everyone Knows America Lost Afghanistan Long Ago

Wal-Mart Mosque

Wal-Mart Mosque 01

Considering that “scary” Muslim women in Burqas always look like “Halloween,” Wal-Mart selling Israeli (IDF) “soldier” costumes has “sparked” outrage from the “perpetually” offended Muslims.

The US retailer was previously “criticized” for selling a latex “Sheikh Fagin” noses, and “Arab and Muslim terrorist” costumes.

Now America’s largest supermarket chain again has sparked “controversy” with Halloween costumes including an “Israeli soldier for kids.”

Wal-Mart Mosque 02

What about Muslims in Islamic supremacist “costumes” walking through Wal-Mart?

That’s “really” scary!

The “Israeli soldier for kids” costume, including a shirt, trousers, belt and hat, carries Hebrew writing and appears to “resemble” uniforms worn by “Israeli Defense Forces” (IDF) paratroopers and elite units.

Wal-Mart Mosque 03

The ad shows a young boy “wearing” it and posing with a toy gun, while “pointing” at the camera.

It is being sold at the reduced price of $27.44 with the description: “When Halloween time rolls around, make this item part of your child’s complete ensemble.”

But reviewers were quick to “voice” their disapproval. “Might as well sell a Hitler outfit for children as well!” wrote one commenter, who called the costume “utterly insensitive” and gave it one star.

The comments were “echoed” by critics on social media, with Saudi-owned Al Arabiya news quoting pro-Palestinian Twitter users accusing Wal-Mart of “supporting killing and occupation.”

Wal-Mart Mosque 05

A description of the costume on another website, Wholesale Halloween Costumes, read: “Defend your Jewish heritage proudly by wearing the Israeli Soldier Boy’s Costume!”

“The Israeli Defense Forces have a mission to protect the land and the people of Israel from outside threats with low casualties, and to avoid waging war if at all possible.”

Wal-Mart also sells an Israeli “police officer” costume for children, as well as an array of “military outfits” representing different US forces.

Wal-Mart Mosque 07

Last year, Wal-Mart “withdrew” a costume labeled “Pashtun Papa” after social media users branded it “racist” and “offensive” the description read.

“Nothing is sacred this Halloween. Shock your friends with this Islamic costume.”

Wal-Mart Mosque 08

The chain was also being “criticized” for an accessory by Morris Costumes being sold on its website under the title: “Sheik Fagin Nose.”

“Latex prosthetic nose perfect for an Arab Sheik,” reads the description of the item, which is also sold by several other outlets.

Wal-Mart Mosque 09

Full “Arab Sheikh” and “Arab Knight” costumes are also available on Wal-Mart’s website.

It is not the first time the supermarket’s Halloween outfits have “provoked” outrage.

Wal-Mart Mosque 10

In 2013, Wal-Mart was also one of several retailers to “remove” an Osama bin Laden-themed costume.

The “turban and beard” instant costume, showed a man wearing a “camouflage” coat, looking like Osama bin Laden.

The coat is similar to one “Osama bin Laden” was wearing during an interview.

Wal-Mart Mosque 11

The costume, which was “advertised” on the Fun World Costumes website, as the “Turban & Beard Instant Costume”, was designed to make the person wearing it “look like” the former al-Qaida leader who was “killed” in May 2011.

Wal-Mart has not responded to The Independent’s request for a comment.

Wal-Mart Mosque 12

What about the “scary” looking Muslim “bagheads” who work for Wal-Mart?

Are you “offended” by them.

Christian Soldier 01

Franklin Graham didn’t mince any words with Fox News host Gretchen Carlson on the 30 Christians from Ethiopia that were “slaughtered.”

He both “condemned” the White House for their “inaction” against ISIS and called for a complete “halt to immigration of Muslims” from countries with active Islamic “terror cells” in them.

When challenged by Carlson on whether this halt would draw “criticisms” of discrimination, Graham responded vehemently “of course”, suggesting people will obviously cry “discrimination.”

But Graham says “we are at war and that you must discriminate if you are going to win the war.”

Franklin: “We need to kill all the Muslim terrorists, and more importantly, halt immigration into the U.S. from Muslim countries.”

Gretchen: “But we don’t want to discriminate, right…I mean OMG that would be horrible…”

Franklin: “Now, now Gretchen, of course not.. You’re going to have to discriminate if you’re going to win the war.”

Let’s just keep allowing them to come here to the US and then when people start going crazy like they are in Europe and the Middle East we can say “I just don’t understand, we were nice to the Muslims, we let them come here…”

The Rev. Franklin Graham gave an ominous warning to Christians living in the United States, as he expounded on how “religious” freedoms are being “eroded” stateside while believers are being “persecuted” throughout the world.

Graham also expressed his “concerns” about the Obama administration’s “foreign” policy, which has been to “rebuke” the nation’s allies, such as Israel, while countries known to be “hostile” to the U.S. are attempting to “shape policy” by gaining influence in the Democratic Party and by giving large “donations” to entities such as the “Clinton Foundation.”


“I believe we’re going to see persecution in this country,” Graham said during an interview on Fox and Friends Weekend.

“We’ve already seen many laws that have been passed that restrict our freedom as Christians. I believe it’s going to get worse, and we see no question gaining influence in Washington by those that represent the Islamic faith. We do have a problem in this country and we are losing our religious freedom and we’re losing it a little bit day by day.”

It’s not the “first” time that Graham, the son of renowned evangelist Billy Graham, has issued a “warning” for Christian Americans.

He previously warned that America’s “morality” was crumbling because President Obama “defends Islam and chastises Christians, rebukes our allies and befriends our enemies, and fully supports gay marriage and abortion but denies the religious freedoms of those who don’t agree,” in a post on Facebook.


He has been outspoken in his “critique” of Obama’s leadership and that of nearly everyone in Washington, especially when it comes to the “battle” against ISIS. Graham also encouraged Christians to get “involved” in politics and “run” for office in order to do God’s will.

“Who says we can’t be in politics?” he asked in January at the Oklahoma State Evangelism Conference.

“The gays and lesbians are in politics, I can tell you that. All the anti-God people are in politics. They’re there. Why shouldn’t the church be there? Who says we can’t speak up? Who says our voice can’ be heard? Get involved. I’m here to tell you that the only way, the only hope is not a Republican, it’s not a Democrat or whoever. The only hope is that this country repents of its sins and turns once again to the God of our fathers and to His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ — otherwise, there is no hope.”

His comments on “Fox and Friends Weekend” reiterated his call for Christians to be “involved” in politics and “spread” the message of God’s “love and forgiveness.”

When host Tucker Carlson asked what Christians can do to “right the wrongs or correct the direction the country is headed,” Graham said that everyone needs to “pray and then actively participate in politics.”

“We have a problem in Washington, and we have become so greedy, we have become so bitter, and we fight with one another. But we need Christian Democrats and Christian Republicans running for office. And we need to get God back in Washington,” Graham explained.

Nice to “hear” that at least there is “one” Christian leader in the U.S. who is not “afraid” to tell the truth.

Franklin Graham should be “nominated” for the 2015 Nobel Prize…

Christian Warrior 01

Here is a brief “history” lesson about the Islamic “jihad” which led up to the Crusades. It covers the “Caliphate” expansion of 548 battle-periods, each covering a 20 year period, and then the battle period and the locations of the Crusades.

The timing of this video could not be better, since “Mullah” Obama recently invoked the Crusades as an equivocation of the “evils” of Christianity to the “jihad” of Islam.

There is no moral “equivalency or comparison” between the Islamic jihad and the Crusades, regardless of what Muslims, or Barry Obama, might “believe or think.”

Osama bin Laden “labeled” Westerners, Christians, as Crusaders, as if they “attacked” Islam. The reality, is that “Islamic jihad” came first. The Crusades were merely a “reaction” to the Muslim attacks on Christians, and to “wrest” the Holy Land from “Islamic” control.

What everyone needs to keep in mind is the “time line” involved here:

“First came Judaism, then came Christianity based upon Old Testament history and inspired prophesy, and the New Testament history and teachings of Christ.”

The “History of Islam” came about from the “assembled” writings of Muhammad, more than 600 years after Christ.

Muhammad is a “false” prophet as predicted by Christ in Matthew 7:15: “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.”

Open Letter from the parents of Aaron Carson Vaughn of SEAL Team VI

Please resign, Mr. President

After finally choosing to view the barbaric, on-camera beheading by ISIS of freelance war correspondent James Foley, I have been left with a level of rage known only to those of us who have sacrificed unspeakable offerings on the altar of world peace.

My offering was my only son — Aaron Carson Vaughn. Aaron was a member of SEAL Team VI. He was killed in action when a CH47D Chinook, carrying thirty Americans and eight Afghans was shot down in the Tangi River Valley of Afghanistan on Aug. 6, 2011.

Aaron Carson Vaughn 02

Many times over the past three years, I have been asked what drove my son to choose his particular career. What made him want to be a Navy SEAL? My answer is simple.

Aaron Vaughn was a man who possessed the courage to acknowledge evil. And evil, once truly acknowledged, demands response. Perhaps this is why so few are willing to look it in the eye. It is much simpler — much safer — to look the other way.

That is, unless you are the leader of the Free World.

Aaron Carson Vaughn 05

As Commander-in-Chief, your actions — or lack thereof — Mr. President, cost lives. As you bumble about in your golf cart, slapping on a happy face and fist-pounding your buddies, your cowardly lack of leadership has left a gaping hole — not only in America’s security — but the security of the entire globe. Your message has come across loud and clear, sir: You are not up to this job. You know it. We know it. The world knows it.

Please vacate the people’s house and allow a man or woman of courage and substance to seize the reigns of this out-of-control thug-fest and regain the balance we, America, have provided throughout our great history.

Thanks to your “leadership” from whatever multi-million dollar vacation you happen to be on at any given moment, the world is in chaos. What’s been gained, you’ve lost. What’s been lost, you’ve decimated. You’ve demolished our ability to hold the trust of allies. You’ve made a mockery of the title “President.” And you’ve betrayed the nation for which my son and over 1.3 million others have sacrificed their very lives.

But this should come as no surprise, since your wife uttered a vile statement on Feb. 18, 2008, during the primary campaign — one that speaks volumes of your true convictions. “For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country,” she said.

I am sure my deceased son thanks you for that, Mrs. Obama. Oh, and you’re welcome.

Never in my lifetime have I witnessed such despair and such growing fear that the world’s last best hope, America, has finally been dismantled. Perhaps the better word is transformed — fundamentally transformed. Come to think of it, it’s become difficult — if not impossible — to believe things haven’t gone exactly as you planned, Mr. President.

Amazingly, in five short years, your administration has lurched from one disaster to another. You spearheaded the ambitious rush to end the wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan — with no plan on how to do so effectively. Also, the release of “the Taliban five” in exchange for one American — without consulting Congress — is also on your shoulders.

You have been at the helm during unprecedented national security leaks — including, but not limited to the outing of SEAL Team VI on the Bin laden raid, the outing of the Pakistani doctor who provided the intelligence for that raid, the outing of Afghanistan’s CIA station chief, and the outing of your personal “kill list” to make you look tough. In addition, 75 percent of American deaths in Afghanistan and 83 percent of Americans-wounded-in-action have occurred on your watch, according to

And now, we have this recent, heinous event: the beheading of an American citizen by a barbaric organization you foolishly referred to as “the JV team” in your statements to the New Yorker magazine in January.

You, sir, are the JV team. It’s time for you to step down and allow a true leader to restore our honor and protect our sons and daughters.

Bumps in the Road

America has always been exceptional. And she will be again. You, Mr. President, are a bump in our road.

Billy and Karen Vaughn

Billy Vaughn has been displeased with the way President Obama has been acting at press conferences. “I’d like to see him have some passion about anything going on in the world instead of just speaking in a monotone voice like he has a script that has been made up.”

Aaron Carson Vaughn 03

Their only son Aaron Carson Vaughn was killed in August 2011 when a Chinook helicopter was shot down in eastern Afghanistan. All 33 on board died in the crash, including Vaughn and several SEAL Team Six members.

Vaughn and his fellow commandos were attempting to reinforce a group of Army Rangers after they ran into trouble during a raid to capture a senior Taliban leader.

Obama’s Greatest Flops

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 11, 2012 by andelino

Birth Certificate “Born In The USA”

The White House released President Barack Obama’s “long form” birth certificate, adding documentation to a longstanding discussion over his ability to serve as commander in chief. “We do not have time for this kind of silliness,” Obama said. “We have better stuff to do. I have got better stuff to do. We have got big problems to solve.”

Osama Bin Laden Killed “Tonight”

In a televised address to the nation, Obama announces that Osama bin Laden is dead. His death was the result of a U.S. operation launched today in Abbottabad, Pakistan, against a compound where bin Laden was believed to be hiding. “Today’s achievement is a testament to the greatness of our country and the determination of the American people,” Obama proclaimed.

Debt Ceiling Deal “Gold On The Ceiling”

After the Senate passed a bill to raise the debt limit, Obama pleaded with Congress to shift their attention to jobs. “I will urge them to immediately take some steps — bipartisan, common-sense steps — that will make a difference; that will create a climate where businesses can hire, where folks have more money in their pockets to spend, where people who are out of work can find good jobs,” he said.

Don’t Ask Don’t Tell “Don’t Stop Believing”

As the ban on gays serving in the military came to an end, Obama hailed the fresh start, celebrating the fact that “patriotic Americans in uniform will no longer have to lie about who they are in order to serve the country they love.”

Iraq War To End “Homeward Bound”
