The Stench of Freedom

This is a picture of Stu Bykofsky. This was his column in the Philadelphia Inquirer yesterday.
I'm reprinting it in it's entirety because to me it is beyond belief. This guy is dangerously insane and makes me sick!

Stu Bykofsky | To save America, we need another 9/11

ONE MONTH from The Anniversary, I'm thinking another 9/11 would help America.

What kind of a sick bastard would write such a thing?

A bastard so sick of how splintered we are politically - thanks mainly to our ineptitude in Iraq - that we have forgotten who the enemy is.

It is not Bush and it is not Hillary and it is not Daily Kos or Bill O'Reilly or Giuliani or Barack. It is global terrorists who use Islam to justify their hideous sins, including blowing up women and children.

Iraq has fractured the U.S. into jigsaw pieces of competing interests that encourage our enemies. We are deeply divided and division is weakness.

Most Americans today believe Iraq was a mistake. Why?

Not because Americans are "anti-war."

Americans have turned their backs because the war has dragged on too long and we don't have the patience for a long slog. We've been in Iraq for four years, but to some it seems like a century. In contrast, Britain just pulled its soldiers out of Northern Ireland where they had been, often being shot at, almost 40 years.

That's not the American way.

In Iraq, we don't believe our military is being beaten on the battleground. It's more that there is no formal "battleground." There is the drip of daily casualties and victory is not around the corner. Americans are impatient. We like fast food and fast war.

Americans loved the 1991 Gulf War. It raged for just 100 hours when George H.W. Bush ended it with a declaration of victory. He sent a half-million troops into harm's way and we suffered fewer than 300 deaths.

America likes wars shorter than the World Series.



Bush I did everything right, Bush II did everything wrong - but he did it with the backing of Congress.

Because the war has been a botch so far, Democrats and Republicans are attacking one another, when they aren't attacking themselves. The dialog of discord echoes across America.

Turn back to 9/11.

Remember the community of outrage and national resolve? America had not been so united since the first Day of Infamy - 12/7/41.

We knew who the enemy was then.

We knew who the enemy was shortly after 9/11.

Because we have mislaid 9/11, we have endless sideshow squabbles about whether the surge is working, if we are "safer" now, whether the FBI should listen in on foreign phone calls, whether cops should detain odd-acting "flying imams," whether those plotting alleged attacks on Fort Dix or Kennedy airport are serious threats or amateur bumblers. We bicker over the trees while the forest is ablaze.

America's fabric is pulling apart like a cheap sweater.

What would sew us back together?

Another 9/11 attack.

The Golden Gate Bridge. Mount Rushmore. Chicago's Wrigley Field. The Philadelphia subway system. The U.S. is a target-rich environment for al Qaeda.

Is there any doubt they are planning to hit us again?

If it is to be, then let it be. It will take another attack on the homeland to quell the chattering of chipmunks and to restore America's righteous rage and singular purpose to prevail.

The unity brought by such an attack sadly won't last forever.

The first 9/11 proved that. *

Let's drown his grandchildren and then everyone can come together and mourn and be united in their grief.

And another thing to consider: Is this country, in its current form, worth saving? Wouldn't we be doing the world a favor if we were to fall upon really hard times and had to withdraw from the world stage?

America's righteous rage. Imagine that, a righteous rage.

Sounds biblical, OT, smite thine enemies.

Gaud!

drowning his grandchildren, spook? --you're no better in your suggestion than he in his.

But his point otherwise is well-taken by me. The division in this country is going to do us in. The left is vitriolic, snarling, hissing in their dens.

The right is on the defensive for the reasons he observes --we have no patience for what it will take to accomplish anything in a deeply divided middle east. They've shown us what divisions do to a people who share the same religion--we need to pull together and be different in our politics than Muslim factions. Forsake the hate rhetoric!

It was noted in media recently that liberal male bloggers are really mean-spirited. I can attest to that!

Absolutely brainless lilac scented laughing gas that has absolutely no connection with any reality on this planet.
Mizz Thang has retreated under her liberals are so negative rhetorical rock again.
Yes dear, we have to have the fortitude to fuel the destruction of the entire middle east even if it takes another 60 years.
Maybe if we stick together we can destroy the entire fucking planet!
I'm beginning to see your point.

Sigh.

Bykofsky is a blithering idiot. Anyone who would wish for mass death to achieve political ends is in league with the Hitlers, Stalins, and Pol Pots of history.
