Dear Fellow Patriot,
As we remember the horrendous terrorist attacks to our homeland 12 years ago on Patriot Day, Americans should remain steadfast and vigilant on what may yet be planned that could be so much worse in all respects.
Just look at the debate over how to react against Syria for the use of chemical weapons that killed many innocent civilians. And while the overwhelming majority of Americans are against use of American force ... this atrocity is a glimpse of what radicals involved in the Syria conflict and elsewhere will do to Americans in our homeland including nuclear and biological weapons if they are able to acquire them.
Nor should we forget the deadly attack against the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on last year's Patriot Day (September 11th) ... as it underscores the intent of the radicals who wish the demise of America and all who ally with Her.
And even if, the unanswered questions about why / how this attack was successful and the lack of recourse against these radical extremists are set aside for nonpolitical purposes ... there still remains the concern that these and other enemies of America are emboldened to try even more aggressive attacks relative to the lack of America's forceful response to this attack that killed an ambassador and three other American citizens.
Yes ... Americans are deservedly war weary ... BUT ... they are never weary of the truth ... and really dislike it being clouded, delayed, or veiled in secrecy for political reasons. America's security and welfare should always come first ... and never second to political interests no matter which party is in power.
You can also remember the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 by experiencing all the articles, poems, and videos about this first Patriot Day at USA Patriotism! including my poem, That September Day.
