A Moderate Show of Tribute

I heard that Obama said the flag over the White House will fly at half-staff until Veteran’s Day, November 11.  He called it a “moderate show of tribute.”  I should think so.

He also flew the Chinese flag across from White House grounds to show “tribute.”  Tribute for a government and a political system that has seen 38 million of its citizens murdered by a Communist dictator, Mao Tse Tung, the same person so respected by Anita Dunn, Obama’s White House Communications Director.

Mao has been dead and buried for a number of years, but Communism in China and elsewhere is not dead.

As of this writing 13 American soldiers, including one young woman who had returned from Afghanistan three days prior, are dead.  They were killed on American soil – an American Army post – by an American who was Muslim by faith.  We shouldn’t jump to conclusions, and I do not mean to imply that this is an overall plot by Muslims to kill Americans.

We do know that Osama (I still get startled thinking there is only one letter difference in the names) has told Muslims world-wide to do that very thing.  If we don’t at least consider the possibility that the attack on our soldiers at Ft. Hood is related, there are too many things that could be overlooked in this investigation.

Israeli citizens live every day of their lives knowing that terrorism could strike at any moment from Arab Muslims.  Citizens of Great Britain have the same threat to a lesser degree from the IRA (Irish Republican Army).

Have we joined our allies in having to live with this fear?  Don’t be angry with me or suspect me of inciting terroristic responses to a terrorist action.  I am only saying what millions of Americans are thinking.  I am just not as politically correct as they are.
