To All Islamic Extremists, Get a Reality Check

It is interesting to me to listen to these Islamic “extremists”, or whatever we are calling them this week, and hear them say they win if we pull out of Iraq. Well, news flash, we will have to pull out eventually and no, you did not or will not win. It is clear to me that even though we have made some mistakes, and the situation in Iraq is not ideal, I think we have proven the point that if you punch us, we will punch back and hard. For them to think we have no spine or stomach for conflict is a ridiculous assumption. They should spend some time reading about our history and what we will do to fight for our way of life.

Let’s just consider the Revolutionary War. While it started with a successful battle at Boston, the first year or two of this war was an embarrassment. The English started by beating us out New York in battle after battle. The mistakes by Washington and his men were numerous. The troops were plagued with disease, poor living conditions, desertion, poor training, and low self-esteem. They were outflanked, outnumbered, and overpowered in just about every engagement. The Continental Army was beaten from New York to the edge of our capital in Philadelphia and still we did not give up. Just when it looked like we were about to be overrun, Washington crossed the Delaware and caught the enemy with their pants down. The tide of the war turned and the rest is history.

Our history is filled with stories like these; of American’s making huge sacrifices in the face of danger, and always rising to the occasion. Don’t think for a moment that we are going to sit around and let you destroy us. You can be a thorn in our side for generations to come, but we will always be here and we will always fight back. To think you can win is a joke. We have you outnumbered, outgunned, and outsmarted. More than anything, we are free men and women fighting for our right to be free. Living under Islamic rule will never happen so you might as well move on to some other chump you can pick on because you will never win. Freedom will always survive.
