Timeline of Modern Terrorism

As we remember the impact and absorb the trauma of the most tragic day in American history, you notice a constant questioning of the course this country has taken in the War on Terror, or what I consider to be the beginning stages of World War IV.

This questioning has more to do with the orientation of the current administration rather than the orientation our enemy has made painfully clear.

How easily we forget the tell-tale behavior of our enemies before our beloved buildings fell...

To put into context the behavior of terrorists over the course of the last three decades, my good bloggin sistah from anothah mistah Cathy at Sunday Morning Coffee has put together an excellent accumulation of the last 30+ years of terrorist activity.

Take the time machine trip through modern time Islamic Terrorist activity at her post that includes these incidents:

Meanwhile our own media has chosen what side they're on...

*sigh*

Go on over to see my good friend Cathy to read a very well put together post that will dredge up memories of where you were when...

Stop the ACLU has their tribute...

Josh: Thanks for the link. The terrorists have been doing variations of the same thing for so long. They really haven't needed to change their tactics because the world has been so complacent. We as Americans slept at the wheel up until 9/11 and now we just hit the snooze button every now and again.

I said it in my post and will say it here... but the terrorists... the Islamofascists will stop at nothing to reach their goal.

Submit or die.

For whom the bell tolls? It tolls for thee.

(jumping off the soapbox now!)

Now with the soapbox of blogging available, sleeping at the wheel is no longer an option. If only we could get those who hold political power to feel the same way!

Great work Cathy!

I feel your sigh.

*sigh*

Great post, Peak.

Please add the murder of US Egyptian ally Anwar Sadat, in 1981, by Islamic extremists.
