Ten Years Later-9-11-2011
Osama bin Laden. The founder of Al-Qaeda, the jihadist organization responsible for the September 11 attacks on the United States and numerous other mass-casualty attacks against civilian and military targets.
It took 10 long years to kill this evil man.
We owe a huge heart felt thank you to our hero’s and American troops fighting and in all too many cases dying to pay the price for our freedom.
Hero’s that are keeping the evil and terror at bay has had a tremendous cost in lives and injuries. The cost to date in lives and injured heroes is almost unbelievable.
Troops Killed in Iraq: 4477
Troops Killed in Afghanistan: 1747
Wounded in Action: 45795
We must Never Forget. We have a responsibility to remember.
Not just on the anniversary of 9-11-01.
But daily, we need to remember that a jihad was declared against the USA.
“We — with Allah’s help — call on every Muslim who believes in Allah and wishes to be rewarded to comply with Allah’s order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it. We also call on Muslim ulema, leaders, youths, and soldiers to launch the raid on Satan’s U.S. troops and the devil’s supporters allying with them, and to displace those who are behind them so that they may learn a lesson.”
The terrorist attackers on the morning of September 11, 2001 took America by surprise.
Islamic terrorists flew American Airlines Flight 11 into the north side of the north tower of the World Trade Center at 8:46 a.m.
United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the south tower At 9:03a.m.
Both towers collapsed.
American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon- Arlington County, Virginia at 9:37a.m.
The fourth hijacked plane, United Airlines Flight 93, crashed in a field in southwest Pennsylvania, at 10:03 a.m.
2,996 people died in these terrorist attacks.
The simple truth is that the Islamist extremists who behead and riot and burn do have a choice. They want to fulfill the jihad. What they want is an excuse, and they’ll find one no matter what America does. What it boils down to is that if America does not bow down to Islam or if Islamist extremists feel they are not getting their way, murder and mayhem will result. Why is that cruelty, repression, conquest, terror, anarchy and slaughter are considered a logical and reasonable response?

Please consider being involved. So we never do forget.
