You that are sleeping: Wake Up!

The butchers of New York, Washington, London, Madrid, Bali, ad nauseam haven't gone to sleep. They still plot our destruction. And now they added another venue to their butcheries - Mumbai. They were not Islamic zealots looking to extirpate idol worship; India has millions of idol-worshiping Hindus but they were not targeted. These butchers, like those before, were Islamic fascists looking for Westerners. Americans, Britons and Israelis, Jews and Christians, were specifically targeted. Hostages were tortured before being killed. And we blithely go our merry way.

Mumbai was not the work of an amateur, or even a group of amateurs. It consisted of at least ten separate but coordinated and meticulously well-planned attacks. The terrorists knew their way around the hotels better than the security forces did. Plots like these are not hatched overnight. Over seven years after 9/11, and still Western intelligence had no inkling of the plot in time to stop it. What in blazes is the matter with us?

The just-concluded election campaign provided us with a perfect opportunity to hold both candidates' feet to the fire on what they intend to do about terrorism, but they did not address the issue adequately and we did not make them. So now I have this to say to the President-elect:

The barbarians are at the gates. We don't give a hoot about General Motors. If it can't make cars that Americans want to buy and turn a profit, let it go under. That's how free markets work. Ditto with Citigroup. Enough taxpayers' money down the drain. Tell us how you propose to deal with the barbarians.
