Seventy years ago to the day, on December 7th 1941, America was caught with her pants down.
It took full mobilization of the country, uncounted number of lives and unimaginable treasure, to overcome a global struggle which began by what President Roosevelt termed as “a date which will live in infamy.”
Ten years ago, on September 11th 2001, America was yet again caught with her pants down. Fast forward to today; America is once again in midst of a worldwide struggle, which as of now, the “inevitable triumph“ is not certain.
This time around the enemy is not fighting a conventional war, is not championing a nationalistic fervor, rather, in achieving its aim of world domination, it is hiding behind a religion.
America needs to take the virulent Islamist onslaught a whole lot more seriously as she does now.
The messianic Mullahs in Iran are after nuke, the moment they get it, other will follow suit, the whole ball game changes, and not for the better.
Just like nowadays, back in 1941, in the name of being anti-war, a lot of people were advising America to mind her own business, in hindsight, a populist nonsensical advice.
America, pull up your pants now and help Iranians overthrow the common enemy.
