The recent release of dozens of photos showing lower Manhattan in a smoky and fire-filled storm, with the Twin Towers burning in the foreground, are a grim reminder nearly nine years after the attacks that we are still at war. In 2009, if I am not mistaken, there were more foiled terror attempts against the United States than any previous year. How can critics of military involvement in the Middle East explain this? They will merely point the to the fact that our presence is adding fuel to the fire that is the global hate against America. However that is where they are wrong. In fact, the world has plenty to be thankful for toward the United States. In fact, I am getting sick and tired of foreign nations and domestic critics continually downplaying the significance of the United States in moral and charitable might. Those on the left will badger George W. Bush and further blame the past administration for our current problems. I was not aware that George W. Bush was in power in 2009 when the HIGHEST number of terror attacks against the United States were foiled. Oh, wait a second. George W. Bush wasn’t in power. It was Barack Hussein Obama. Mr. Obama is a Citizen of the World first, and a citizen of the United States second. So of course, the continual barrage of apologies and constant happy campaign mode make sense. Barack Obama does what is best for those whose daily lives are not impacted by the decision he makes. Surely they will be happy then? However, whose lives are impacted by the decisions that he makes? It is you and me. United States Citizens. Perhaps he should focus more on protecting our own citizens first, and then citizens of the world second.
