    An Open Letter To Terrorists

    Well, you hit the World Trade Center, but you missed America. You hit the Pentagon, but you missed America. You used helpless American bodies to take out other American bodies, but like a poor marksman, you STILL MISSED America. Why? Because of something you will never understand. America isn't about a building or two, not about financial centers, not about military centers, America isn't about a place, America isn't even about a bunch of bodies.

    America is about an IDEA. An idea, that you can go someplace where you can earn as much as you can figure out how to, live for the most part like you envisioned living, and pursue happiness. (No guarantees that you'll reach it, but you can sure try!) Go ahead and whine your terrorist whine, and chant your terrorist litany: "If you can not see my point, then feel my pain." This concept is alien to Americans. We live in a country where we don't have to see your point. But you're free to have one. We don't have to listen to your speech. But you're free to say one. Don't know where you got the strange idea that everyone has to agree with you. We don't agree with each other in this country, almost as a matter of pride. We're a collection of people that don't agree, called States. We united our individual states to protect ourselves from tyranny in the world. Another idea we made up on the spot. You CAN make it up as you go when it's your country. If you're free enough. Yeah, we're fat, sloppy, easy-going goofs most of the time. That's an unfortunate image to project to the world, but it comes from feeling free and easy about the world you live in. It's unfortunate too, because people start to forget that when you attack Americans, they tend to fight like a cornered badger.

    The first we knew of the War of 1812 was when England burned Washington D.C. to the ground. Didn't turn out like England thought it was going to, and it's not going to turn out like you think, either. Sorry, but you're not the first bully on our shores, just the most recent. No Marquis of Queensbury rules for Americans, either. We were the FIRST and so far, the only country in the world to use nuclear weapons in anger. Horrific idea, nowadays? News for you, it was back then too, but we used it anyway. Only had two of them in the whole world and we used them both. My brother in-law's father worked on the Manhattan Project. Told me once, that right up until they threw the switch, the physicists were still arguing over whether the Uranium alone would fission, or whether it would start a fission chain reaction that would destroy everything. But they threw the switch anyway, because we had a War to win. Does this tell you something about American resolve? So who just declared War on us? It would be nice to point to some real estate, like the good old days. Unfortunately, we're probably at war with random camps in far-flung places - who think they're safe. Just like the Barbary Pirates did, if I recall correctly.

    Better start sleeping with one eye open. There's a spirit that tends to take over people who come to this country looking for opportunity, looking for liberty, and looking for freedom. Even if they misuse it. The Marielistas that Castro emptied out of his prisons were overjoyed to find out how much freedom there was. First thing they did when they hit our shores was run out and buy guns. The ones that didn't end up dead, ended up in prisons. It was a big pain in the ass then (especially in south Florida), but you're only the newest pain in the ass, not the first. You seem to be incapable of understanding that we don't live in America, America lives in US! American Spirit is what it's called. And killing a few thousand of us, or a few million of us, won't change it. Most of the time, it's a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of Spirit. Until we're crossed in a cowardly manner, then it becomes an entirely different kind of Spirit. Wait until you see what we do with that Spirit, this time. Sleep tight, if you can. Just understand we are coming.

    You bet, BG! These a$$holes think freedom is a disease that they need to stamp out, but that will never happen. Even if they wipe out every American on the earth, Freedom shall prevail. It's like the American Spirit you spoke of. It will not die.
    As a woman I know there are quite a number of us that would fight to the death to defend this great nation of ours and the accused won't allow their women to do anything. That is faulty thinking on their part.
    We are Americans first, gender comes next. My forefathers may have been Irish and Indian but I was born an Aserican, raised an American and will die an American. As they say America may not be perfect but it beats the hell out of what's in second place!
    To ad lib on Charlie Daniels a bit..."this lady may have stumbled but she ain't never fell and if the terrorists don't believe that they can all go straight to hell"
