When I read this headline, I thought to myself, “Geez, there has to be 1,000’s of people defecting to terrorism.”
I was wrong.
This article makes it sound like the newest trend is to become a terrorist; it’s as if they want to support the enemy by giving them more and more attention. You won’t believe how many people this involves.
100,000? Not quite.
10,000? Getting closer.
100? Almost there….
Wait for it……30! Since January 1, 2009, 30 people have gone from Germany to Afghanistan to train with the Taliban. Here’s a quote from the Article:
U.S. and European counter-terrorism officials say a rising number of Western recruits — including Americans — are traveling to Afghanistan and Pakistan to attend paramilitary training camps. The flow of recruits has continued unabated, officials said, in spite of an intensified campaign over the past year by the CIA to eliminate al-Qaeda and Taliban commanders in drone missile attacks.
I by no means want to minimize the significance of this reality; there are nut jobs who want to become a terrorist, who travel to Afghanistan to train, and then return home after being brain-washed by the enemy.
That is a scary picture.
However, the media once again sides with the enemy in order to manipulate others to get what they want: defeat.
German security services have been on high alert since last month, when groups affiliated with the Taliban and al-Qaeda issued several videos warning that an attack on German targets was imminent if the government did not bring home its forces from Afghanistan.
I want the troops home, too. I’m just tired of the media berating our troops over there, deflating morale and propagandizing pacifism while instilling fear in everyone else.
And, all this over 30 people. They’ll use whatever story they can to twist it into “We better leave or we’ll get attacked.”
As if we won’t get attacked anyway. For those of you on the left, please google certain events that took place on 9.11.01
Notice we haven’t been attacked since then? We would be wise to think about why that is.
Saddam Hussein is dead, Bin Laden is hiding in a hole, and we’ve had the enemy on their heels ever since.
You wouldn’t know that by watching CNN, though.
Here is big salute to the men and women in the US military who fight to keep this country safe. We are indebted to you. I apologize for the lack of respect our media shows you.
