Criticizing nation's reaction to terror from comfy Gilford is one thing. . .

To The Daily Sun,

After reading through Mr. Albushies' rant on how the terrorists are "only" foot soldiers with no means to harm us and we should move on from the 9/11 experience, one is left wondering if he might not have had the same thoughts about Pearl Harbor.

Mr. A. seems to forget that these "foot" soldiers did on 9/11 have a very efficient air force of four large planes. They have used a small navy to badly damage several of our navy ships and kill or troops. They have managed to blow up a Russian plane with a smallish bomb. They have killed a sizable number of people in Paris and are known to have 30,000 well armed (read tanks, artillery and missiles) available to move about the entire Middle East. And hopefully, even the pacifist Mr. A. will admit that there is every reason to suspect they have and will use a suitcase nuke should the proper occasion arise.

Criticizing our and other nation's reaction to terror attacks from the comfort of rural Gilford may make him "feel" good about himself. However, we suspect many that went through 9/11 or lost loved ones in the hundreds of other terror attacks around the world including the very recent Paris killings may have a different take on the subject.

Too many choose to deny we are involved in a religious war

To The Daily Sun,

President Obama and his ilk continue to profess the following:
— "We must not profile people by their religion."
— "We must not judge all by the actions of a few."
— "We must adopt stricter gun control laws, to prevent such vicious shootings."
— "Global warming is more important to address than radical Islam because it is one of the primary reasons for these terrorist attacks."

This deductive reasoning is not unlike treating strep throat with a hemorrhoid suppository. So:

— The California couple responsible for at least 14 deaths and many more people being injured were Muslims, but this fact is carefully being denied or minimized — for example "work place violence" vs. a religious attack. Why? (I'm not drinking the Kool-Aid. Are you?)

— It is okay to profile and restrict all gun owners because of the actions of a few. Huh? (What do we do about the IEDs?)

— Some of the areas with the highest gun related crimes and murders are under strict gun control laws. How 'bout that!

— Global warming is more important and deadlier than global Jihad. Are you out of your minds?

Again I stress that the American people need to wale up. At the risk of being profiled, I ask: How many more terrorist attacks like 9/11, Paris, or this last California tragedy will it take to see the reality. We are now in a religious war (whether we like it or not) which too many still choose to deny.
