The Babe Hits a Homer

Barbara Simpson, WND's "Babe in the Bunker", has a good column this week concerning the jihad still being fought under our naive noses here. An excerpt:

How many times do humans have to be hit on the head before they pay attention?

Oh, I don't know. Let me count the ways: The U.S. Embassy takeover in Iran; the Hezbollah kidnapping of 20 U.S. and other hostages in Lebanon; destruction of the U.S. Embassy in Beirut; destruction of the U.S. military barracks at Beirut airport; truck bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Kuwait; truck bombing of U.S. Embassy annex in Beirut; downing of Kuwait Airways Flight 221; Madrid restaurant bombing of U.S. military; TWA flight 847; the Achille Lauro hijacking; the Rome and Vienna airport bombings; TWA flight 840; West Berlin disco; Pan Am flight downed in Lockerbie, Scotland; the first World Trade Center Bombing; Oklahoma City bombing; car bomb at Riyadh headquarters of U.S. military, Khobar Towers at Dhahran; U.S. embassies at Nairobi and Dar es Salaam; USS Cole,[sic] 9-11; American Consulate in Karachi; attacks in Saudi Arabia of housing compounds, Saudi oil company kidnapping and U.S. Consulate; Madrid trains; the murder of Theo van Gogh; the London bombings.

What's the link? Islamic militants with the stated aim of destroying the West, the United States, Israel, all we've done and all we stand for. They make no bones about it.

The insistance of liberal politicians to paint any of these tragedies as anything other than the responsibilities of the terrorists themselves, and especially to make this the fault of America or Israel, sickens.

When it happens here again (not if, but when) the left will be shut out. People will stop listening to them alltogether. They're enablers, just like one who supplies booze to an alcoholic, these people provide :tolerance" to terrorists, which enable them to plot and plan and carry out more attacks.
