“Imminent” can mean all sorts of things, like in the next few minutes, the next hour, the next day, next week but it always means pretty damned soon.
With this president’s abject and repetitiveÂ demonstrations of weakness, servitude, and remorse for America’s history,Â could another, or far worse, 9/11Â be in the relatively immediate offing?
No one would dare attack a confident, powerful, and united nation.
Knowing that retribution would be timid or non-existent, even the most cowardly, most inept, and weakestÂ of enemies wouldÂ be encouraged toÂ assault a country in disarray, confusion, and under domestic assault.Â
Such chaos furnishes an added dollopÂ of motivation toÂ extra-national terrorists, especiallyÂ jihadists inspired by Allah.
Before terrorism in AmericaÂ devolved intoÂ an insignificantÂ issueÂ under the Obama administration, we used to hear about color-coded warning levels and “chatter,” i.e., heightened activity among potential Islamic enemies detected by elements of our national security agencies.
Instead today we hear not chatter but of overt activity, not through government channels but rather from independent news agencies such as DrudgeReport.com.
Consider just one day’s worth of headlines on Drudge: “FBI arrests Jordanian for downtown Dallas bomb plot…,” “Illinois man charged in plot to bomb federal offices…,” “Terror suspects accused of targeting Marine base in Quantico…Â ,” “Men vanish after taking photos of Philly subway system…, “Village of white German al-Qaeda terrorist found…“
Compound those with such Drudge headlines as, “US May Face ‘Armageddon’ If China, Japan Don’t Buy Debt…,” “VIOLENCE ‘WORSE THAN EXPECTED’ IN AFGHANISTAN…,” “Administration to Cut 384 Agents from Mexican Border…,” the ongoing cat and nuclear mouse charade with Iran, the mad spending in Washington,Â the global warming farce,Â andÂ a congress bent on stuffing a vile pill down Americans’ throatsÂ in the form of Obamacare.
All of those stories are interrelated in that they reflect a nation in denial, a nation in jeopardy,Â a nation in upheaval.
It doesn’t take much skill at reading between the headlines to conclude thatÂ this nationÂ is in dire straits and at greater risk than everÂ sinceÂ September 11th, 2001.Â Â Â Â
Welcome to Obamamerica, 2010.Â Â May God save and protect us.Â Obama certainly wont.
