Tag Archive: Trojan Horse

  Today, on this forty-seventh anniversary of President Kennedy’s Dallas assassination, I heard confirmation of what I’ve always felt about the present “war”, and that is that these lunatics who try to send bombs on airplanes from places like Yemen are crazy like the fox, and not just interested in maiming people.  Their wins are coming in the financial arena.  They aim to break the bank of “the west”, especially the United States and are succeeding with every expensive adjustment we make, and every day we pour billions into Afghanistan.

It is amazing to me that our government doesn’t seem to notice this, nor want to correct it.  “AQAP” or Al-Qaidas in the Arab Peninsula, is winning the war every time they make us change our free society way of life and take money out of our coffers that could be used to improve our lives, create employment or for medical research, etc.  And housing those clown in Guantanamo only hardened them against the U.S. – hardly rocket science to draw that conclusion, and I said it when the Bush Administration set that whole camp up.  Counterproductive to put it mildly, and all of those weirdos who don’t mind dying for a fantasy want to get some payback now more than ever after we ship them back over there to conspire with their brethren.  It was just plain stupid to create and exacerbate that situation like that.  Pertinent reading here: http://www.npr.org/2010/11/18/131423965/for-yemen-terrorists-targeting-u-s-it-s-personal

It is as if none of our leaders ever read a story that I read as a child back in the late 1960s; The Trojan Horse,

 or studied any of the lessons contained within the tale – not just physically does it still apply, it applies to the methods and mindset of these enemies.  When will we stand firm like I heard this country did against the Japanese in WWII following the Pearl Harbor attacks?  The  al-qaidas of the world have a similar mindset to the Japanese kamikaze pilots, and I don’t recall the US changing its lifestyle by not, say, walking outside for fear that a pilot might crash his plane down upon you.  Wouldn’t it be ironic if we were the ones who have to “nuke” somebody like these terrorists long before Iran or North Korea have the ability to do so? We would if I were the first real Black American President, because they are bragging about it, “naa, na, na, na, naaaa” style.  

If I had to fly this week – I wouldn’t, but when I do again, I’ll reluctantly opt for the scanner so those closet homos on the TSA staff can get their cheap thrill off my limp bisket – until our “leaders” stand-up to the cowardly bombing bastards, and for our free way of life again.  How do you see it?  Do you remember where you were when you heard the news of JFK’s assassination?

Now…let’s Dance to “Feel Up”! 

I loved the World Trade Center towers and had many occasions to visit them and even DJ/co-emcee at a party there once upon a night.  Granted that hindsight is 20/20, but I said this then on September 11, 2001, and I say it now, and had our “leader” been as bold as he talked tough or as those in the war-torn past century, we wouldn’t be pouring money needed here in “the States” into an unwinnable war in Afghanistan today, or Iraq yesterday.  I would have chosen the Truman option; I’d have nuked the hell out of wherever we thought Osama Bin Laden and his cohorts were and possibly leveled Afghanistan by September 15, 2001.

The Japanese in WWII were as brutal to our troops and civilians as Al Qaeda/Taliban was on “9/11”, and that is all the justification I would have needed.  The United States strayed from being no-holds- barred under President Clinton who wrongly instituted “political correctness” at home and abroad.  All that did was make this country look vulnerable and weak.  There are no “safe” wars, and innocents will get killed if you are to win.

I always hear my Dad, the late WWII U.S. Army Major (one of few Black American men to achieve that rank back then) say about our fighting in Vietnam that “we are fighting with one arm tied behind our backs.”  I am sure he would say the same thing today about the USA pouring resources needed at home into fighting those who are engaging in a mythical “holy war”  if he were still with us here in the physical world.  He had another prophecy that he expounded to my Mum and I back in the early 1990s, “They are building a silent army and Trojan Horse over here…”  By “they” back then he meant “Arabs” because we didn’t speak in terms of “Muslims” unless talking about the U.S./Chicago-based Nation of Islam.  Noticing the influx of these new “immigrants”, he felt that they had meaner intentions than those who came to Ellis Island earlier in the twentieth century when he was a young man.  Prophecy fulfilled. enola-gay

If you are the big, bad “superpower” and you let some upstart fanatic bloody your lip and don’t squash them then and there, you get what we have now and you are not so “super” anymore.  Where was the Enola Gay when we needed her – and the guts to use it?

With all the fuss over whether Iran is building a nuclear program, I wonder why, when if you have the ability to use one when attacked viciously, you don’t.  I do not see that as the high road, but an off-ramp.
