Daily Event for September 11

On this the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the USA I thought we should remember. Remember what happened, remember those who died, remember who and what we are fighting against and remember those who have given their lives in the fight.

On Sept. 11, 2001 almost 3,000 people were killed in the attacks on the United States. Since then almost 3,000 servicemen and women from the US, Britain and other coalition nations have died in the fight. Since Sept. 11, 2001 thousands of other people have been killed by terrorists in places like London, Bali, Madrid, Israel and even Iraq and Afghanistan.

The loss of so many people is a tragedy, not only to them but to tens of thousands of their family members. They are not just numbers on a sheet of paper they were fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters taken from us by murderous thugs. The grief felt by those left behind is incalculable.

Those we fight against know no rules, they target innocent people who are doing nothing more than going to a club or market, riding a train to work or sitting at their desk. Like a coward in the night they target those who can't fight back. With only the goal of killing as many as possible. There is no strategy behind these acts of terror just murder. Creating a pure Islamic world ruled under their twisted and perverse views of Islam being their ultimate goal.

They know no laws only the sword and bullet, and it is only with the sword and bullet will they be defeated. While the world squabbles about what to do the terrorists plot and plan their next act of murder. We must speak with one voice against those who would kill us for if we do not the consequences will be enormous.

Today we remember those lost at the World Trade Center in New York, The Pentagon in Washington, D.C. and those lost on flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

I realize this is a departure for the normal point of this website however, these events are extremely important to everyone no matter where you live.
