We have Foreign Enemies
but do we have Domestic Enemies?
You bet we do. 


taps came from both the confederate army and the union army during the civil war

 This article was written by Tamara "Tammy" Hall,
"The  Montana Motivator".  Tammy is a well known motivational  speaker from Bozeman, Montana.

I sat in a movie theater, watching "Shindler's  list," and asked myself,  "Why  didn't the Jews fight back?"  Now I know.

I sat in a movie theater, watching "Pearl Harbor" and  asked myself,  "Why weren't we prepared?"  Now I know.

Civilized people cannot fathom, never less predict,  the actions of evil  people. 

On September 11, dozens of capable airplane passengers allowed  themselves to be overpowered by a handful of poorly  armed terrorists  because they did not comprehend the depth of hatred  that motivated their captors.

On September 11, thousands of innocent people were  murdered because too  many Americans naively reject the reality that some  nations are  dedicated to  the dominance of others.

Many political pundits, pacifists and media personnel want us to forget  the  carnage. They say we must focus on the bravery of the rescuers and ignore  the cowardice of the killers.  They implore us to understand the  motivation  of the perpetrators. The major television stations have announced they will assist the healing process by not re-playing  devastating footage of  the planes crashing into the Towers.

I will not be manipulated.  I will not pretend to  understand.  I will not  forget.

I will not underestimate the intelligence of our adversary who patiently  planned and meticulously orchestrated a devastating  act of war.

I will not forget that the terrorist desire a world  society where women  are chattel and freedom is forbidden.

I will not isolate myself from my fellow Americans  by pretending an  attack on the USS Cole in Yemen was not an attack on  me.

I will not forget the Clinton administration  equipped Islamic terrorists  and their supporters with the world's most  sophisticated  telecommunications  equipment and encryption technology, thereby  compromising America's  ability to trace terrorist radio, cell phone, land  lines, faxes and  modem  communications.

I will not be appeased with pointless, quick  retaliatory strikes like  those  perfected by the previous administration. I will not  be comforted by  "feel-good, do nothing" regulations like the silly  "Have your bags been  under your control?" question at the airport.

I will not forget the liberal media who abused freedom of the press to  kick  our country when it was vulnerable and hurting.

I will not forget that ABC TV anchor Peter Jennings questioned President  Bush's motives for not returning immediately to  Washington, DC and  commented, "We're all pretty skeptical and cynical  about Washington."

I will not forget that CBS anchor Dan Rather  preceded President Bush's  address to the nation with the snide remark, "No  matter how you feel  about him, he is still our president."

And I will not forget the ABC's Mark Halperin warned  if reporters  weren't  informed of every little detail of this war, they  aren't "likely -- nor  should  they be expected -- to show deference."

I will not be influenced by so called, "anti-war  demonstrators" who  exploit the right of expression to chant anti-American  obscenities.  I will not forget  the moral victory handed the North Vietnamese by  American war protesters  who reviled and spat upon the returning soldiers.

I will not be softened by the wishful thinking of  pacifists who chose  reassurance over reality.

I will embrace the wise words of Prime Minister Tony  Blair who told  Labor Party conference, "They have no moral  inhibition on the slaughter  of the innocent. If they could have murdered not 7,000 but 70,000 does anyone doubt they would have done so and rejoiced in  it?

There is no compromise possible with such people, no  meeting of minds,  no point of understanding with such terror. Just a  choice: defeat it or be defeated by it.

And defeat it we must."

I will force myself to:

-hear the weeping

-feel the helplessness

-imagine the terror

-sense the panic

-smell the burning flesh

-experience the loss

-remember the hatred

I sat in a movie theater, watching in quiet  reverence as the blood of  young  soldier's  turned the sands of Normandy beach red in "Private  Ryan" and asked  myself, > "Where did they find the courage?"

Now I know.

We have no choice.

Living without liberty is not living.

 That was great and makes me think of the media today.  A kids cartoon, Family Guy, says, "We need an all girl sex orgy,.... We're all turning Gay."  This is only one example of an attack on America that is as real of an attack as the one on the World Trade Center.
