Explosions have just rocked Egypt. While no one has claimed
responsibility for the serious of bombings that have claimed at least 46 lives,
it seems as though it could be either al Qaeda or someone influenced by their
beliefs. This comes on the same day that London Police shoot and kill a person
apparently attempting to set off another bomb in a London subway. This can only
make one stop and wonder if al Qaeda is gaining even more strength.
During President BushÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s prime time speech a few weeks ago,
he stated that ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œwe are fighting them there so that we donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t have to fight them
hereÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â. This is starting to seem like another misconception given by the
President who promised to restore trust to the Oval Office.
With two attacks in London, only two weeks apart, it seems
that the terrorists are taking the words of the President and turning them
around. We are in a war with an enemy who can slip in and out of our radar
screen. They can be riding the bus with you or passing you in the grocery store.
It is an enemy fighting for a religious cause, and that is the hardest enemy to
The problem we are faced with is a rough one. We have a
commander in chief who has been less than truthful with the American people. His
subordinates have been involved in a political smear campaign that has
ultimately crippled our intelligence community, and he has led us into another
war on false pretenses.
While we are trying to go about our lives as usual, we can
not help to worry about the next terrorist attack happening in our own
communities. While we are involved in these two wars, which seems to have merged
to one large war, our tensions between China are increasing over Taiwan. When
you add it all up, we very well could be looking at the starts of World War 3.
Our best chances of thwarting off a colossal disaster will
be to have a leader that can join this nation instead of dividing it. We need a
leader who will address the people honestly and gain their trust. In a time of
war, the enemy does not take into account political divide amongst us. If we
want to defuse this situation, then we need a new leader that will work with our
intelligence agencies, our Congress, and our people ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ not one that will work
Now is the time to start writing your Senator or
Congressman and let him know your concern. Let him know that we will not allow
our nation to be the front line of a war because of the inability to lead. It is
time for our Congress to provide the oversight it is guaranteed in our Congress
and decide if the President is doing the job that he is charged with and if he
isnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t then it is time to replace him.
Remember this. Twice in our history we thought we would not be attacked on the home front. The first time was Perl Harbor. The second was 9/11. We can not allow history to repeat its self a third time!
