America’s Bird!

 While there are many sites out there that discuss America’s current conflict with Islam, most are sites that consider the conflict with only a few possible realities:

    -The conflict is America’s fault
    -The conflict is non-existent
    -The conflict is solely the president’s issue
    -or We deserve what is coming to us

Not only are these views completely misguided, but they say a lot about the destination of the United States as it travels along the path of liberty.  Most latte-sipping Ameripeans can hardly stand the thought of saying a minute’s worth of good things about America.  Somehow we have gotten the strange notion that America is a great evil.  Perhaps it is our capitalist society that is responsible for the great wealth of our country, the largest share of charitable giving in the world, and our constant creativity and inventiveness.  If that is the case, as individuals we need to reassess our reasons for these feelings.  I have to admit, when I was young, jobless, had no desire to have a job, and yet still coveted all the things of my hardworking neighbor – I was a communist too.  Wouldn’t it be nice if I didn’t have to work hard at all and all the people who did work hard had to share the spoils?  The only problem is that this doesn’t work.  If there is no incentive for hardwork, no one works hard.  This is why after 1982 when the Berlin Wall fell down, the Capitalist, American run West Germany was thriving while the communist controlled side of East Germany still had bullet holes in crumbling buildings from WWII.

One could go down the list of ‘isms’ to discover that the only one that seems to work for humanity is ‘capital’ ism.  When everybody shares, the people who actually come up with cures for disease, alternative energy sources, or superior business models, have no incentive.  Sorry, money (or incentives) makes the world go round a lot smoother:  Capitalism 1, Communism 0.

America is a free society, freer than any other these days.  This country runs like a well oiled machine when beauracrats aren’t fouling it up.  No wonder people who support failing anti-human ideologies hate us.  We are the shining pinnacle of light that proves it, Christians (and Jews too) make stuff  that works.

It is not because of world poverty that nearly 3,000 American citizens died on September 11, 2001.  If this is a lie, then tell me why the Bin Laden family is worth millions, why the 2007 failed terror attempt in Scotland was committed by doctors, and why, major efforts to reform the Middle East and bring more jobs, commerce and trade to its people are met with increased violence?  It is not about poverty.

It is not because of American foreign policy that the September 11th attacks happened either.  If this is a lie, then tell me why France, a country that has bent over backwards to prove to the Muslim world that it is not a threat and did not support the United States’ war in Iraq, experienced a major attack before we did?  Why Spain, a country that has all, but lost the ground that it reclaimed from Islam in Columbus’ time has also experienced terror attacks?  It is not about U.S. Foriegn Policy.

Of course, if you are reading this, you represent the few Americans who want to actually have an informed opinion.  Today’s American can’t be bothered.  They let Anderson Cooper tell them what to think and then they move on, whole-heartedly defending the truth according to CNN, never researching for themselves and arguing to the point of absurdity if you try to call them on their misinformation.  We were attacked on September 11th for one simple reason and the very person who orchestrated these attacks tells us himself in a December 2001 tape that I am sure almost no one saw, aside from a small segment where Bin Laden condemns America for . . . well basically being awesome.

UBL: when people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature, they will like the strong horse. This is only one goal; those who want people to worship the lord of the people, without following that doctrine, will be following the doctrine of Muhammad, peace be upon him.

“I was ordered to fight the people until they say there is no god but Allah, and his prophet  Muhammad.”

The Flaming Blog exists because YOU need to know the truth.
