That statement seems so obvious. And it is, in my estimation. Yet the attitude you see discussed in the following clip (and you should read the article) is the same attitude that has the United States of America revealing to the entire world the number of nuclear warheads we have!
So let’s tell them all of our military strategic information, scrub perfectly descriptive words from our lexicon, and assume that our enemies place the same value on life as do we, here in America. They do not. And quit apologizing for being America! “They” are our enemies because of the GOOD in America, not because of a damn thing for which we must apologize. Have we as a nation erred on occasion? Heck yeah, and so have every one of us individually. But with these attitudes we would have lost WWI and WWII and the attitudes are the same that caused us to walk away from Korea and to lose Vietnam. That’s right, lose it. My 18 months at sea during that time was not lost because I and all of us were doing what our country asked us to do.
But the wrong-headed thinkers lost it, just like they’re losing America’s might in the world — the might that is the only thing standing between you and a jack-booted thug.

[Shahzad is probably a jihadist] Yet only months after the Ft. Hood massacre, our government and leaders refuse to name our enemy. In fact, as a recent PJTV video reminds us, they are running the other way. Words like “jihad,” “Islamic fascism,” etc. — the very ideologies cited by the 9/11 Commission as the causes of September 11 — have now been expunged from the lexicon of our government and even our military.
Times Square reminds us how dangerously self-destructive that is. Were it not for our concerned citizenry and smart law enforcement, our civilization would be on its way out. Many of our leaders are evidently ready to hand it over.
