America’s Death by a Thousand Cuts……

“You’re so worried about the rights of the terrorists, what about the rights of the innocent American traveler?”
-Bobby Jindal, on NBC’s Meet the Press

Do we even realize what is being done to the United States by Al Qaeda? They have assessed that they can win against us by taking our sensibilities away from us. In an article, from today’s ABCNews, comes this revelation:

Printer bombs planted on two cargo flights last month cost only a few thousand dollars and were intended to affect the American economy, according to a newly published Al Qaeda-affiliated magazine.

The attempt was called “Operation Hemorrhage,” *are you listening here? Do you hear what our enemy is doing? This boasting in the magazine, said the entire plot cost al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, only $4,200.

Yesterday, a special edition of Inspire magazine — an English-language propaganda publication produced by AQAP — gave a detailed description of how the attempted attack was conceived and produced.

“Two Nokia mobiles, $150 each, two HP printers, $300 each, plus shipping, transportation and other miscellaneous expenses add up to a total bill of $4,200,” one article said. “That is all that Operation Hemorrhage cost us. In terms of time, it took us three months to plan and execute the operation from beginning to end.”

The magazine also revealed the attack was not meant to kill more than the plane’s pilot and co-pilot, and was meant to force the U.S. government to spend billions of dollars on preventive security screening measures.

The strategy, the magazine said, was “of attacking the enemy with smaller, but more frequent operations is what some may refer to as the strategy of a thousand cuts. The aim is to bleed the enemy to death.”

Do any of you realize what death by a thousand cuts is? If you don’t, let me explain this to you. Al Qaeda has waged a war against us, but they are not fighting a war of conventional means. It is a war of small pieces. Taking little pieces of America and making us change to compensate for what they are doing. Here are some examples, that have already happened, and the consequence of them:

1. The shoe bomber, was a win for Al Qaeda, and was a cut to America, because the consequence was that we all now have to remove our shoes when going to the airport. New rules and regulations that cost the U.S. Millions in the making, making a cut to bleed us… worked, they won the battle.

2. The Underwear bomber, was a win for Al Qaeda, and was a cut to America, because the consequence was that we all now have to go through the “genital grope” because suddenly anyone with underwear on was suspect. Forget using common sense on this. According to the powers that be, Common Sense doesn’t work. Only abusing the American public like this will work. Making another cut to bleed us… worked, they won that battle too.

3. Now we have the Printer Bomber. We know the consequences for this too… America, countering this threat, now is causing Americans to go through screening at airports that has everyone up in arms. We have seen a young boy being strip searched. We have seen a man who had a bag for urine be strip searched causing a leak to happen, so his clothes were ruined. We have seen a woman have to remove her blouse and then have to take her fake breast off for examination. All this is taking our freedoms away and costing more from America, effectively bleeding us. And so far, Bobby Jindal is the only one who has spoken out on this and actually has it right when it comes to what is going on, when he was on NBC’s Meet the Press with David Gregory……

“It feels too much, from this administration, like we’re playing a defensive game in the war on terrorism. Yes, we need to harden our infrastructure, but if you have a committed terrorist who’s willing to give up their lives, you look at that past pattern. We got lucky with the bomb in Times Square. We got lucky with the cargo packages. We got lucky with the underwear bomber that the devices didn’t go off. Luck is not a strategy. We need to be rooting out these networks. We need to be killing these terrorists. I think that the American people are worried when they see an administration worried about reading Miranda rights to the underwear bomber. They worry when they see an administration committed to civilian trials. They wonder, “You’re so worried about the rights of the terrorists, what about the rights of the innocent American traveler?”

We have to look at this without worrying about political correctness or anything else but our own safety. Right now Al Qaeda is doing taking a lesson from the United States on this latest bomber thing that they did, with the printer bomb, that failed. Here is what I mean.

In the last election, the democrats lost big, as the American people spoke volumes about they’re displeasure with Obama and the democrats who was voting for everything he was pushing out. How their leadership was placing America’s future greatness and prosperity in doubt. But that resounding voice of dissention is being twisted by the democrats to mean the American public is stupid, and that they are actually in support of what they were doing. In their failure, they are working to prove it a success.

Now, Al Qaeda is doing the same thing by “gloating” online that their failed “printer bomb” attempt was a success. This was the reason I printed the story about this to warn the American public what they have coming at them. Death by a thousand cuts. Bloody and time consuming. But deadly just the same. We are having this kind of war being waged on us, and just like Bobby Jindal said, the way to stop this is to have strong determination in ‘rooting out these networks to kill these terrorists.

It is just insane to read Terrorists Miranda rights when they are caught. They need to be taken care of in Military tribunals, not civilian courts. In doing what we have been people, we are only showing Al Qaeda our weakness, and they are using that weakness to their advantage. Bleeding us with their version of a Death by a thousand cuts. And folks, their plan is working. Mark my words.

God Bless America, her troops, her allies and her people
God Bless my readers, my listeners on BTR and my viewers on You Tube….

    Excellent post, my friend. Death by a thousand cuts is so right. We need to wake up and recommit ourselves to killing the terrorists instead of worrying about their alleged rights. Unfortunately, I don’t think that will happen until another 9/11 style attack occurs. And if another 9/11 does happen I shudder to think what will happen in this country. Why don’t we just kill these people?! Damn, we need George Bush back!
    reply from Robert Amen to that….or at least someone who will act like a president who has America’s best interests and security at heart. Definitely not Obama. But it is true. We need to stop worrying about what they will think of us. We need to go to war against them the way they are at war against us, and fight them like we fought the Germans and the Japanese in World War II. Be in it to win… matter what. We cannot win this fighting it the way our government is doing it now.

    One of the first thing that needs to be done is fire Janet and Eric. Obama actually may be forced to remove Holder after the “test” case almost resulted in aquittal. I posted on this the other day. These idiots are spinning their wheels on terrorism and national security. It’s like their a jack of all trades and master of none. They embolden our enemies with their approach and it shows.
    On a different note…have a very happy Thanksgiving holiday. May God bless you and yours with much warmth and happiness.
    reply from Robert: You are right on that one. It needs to be done. The firing of both of them, but you and I both know, it won’t happen. But I will watch this with Holder, as you are right. This “test” case was a sham…..I will go to your blog and read what you wrote on this.
    As for the extra note, I hope that your Thanksgiving is also a great and happy one filled with safety too. God Bless you and yours my friend.

    And add to this, the human version of death by a thousand cuts is VERY painful from what I have read and heard (and partially saw when I was in the military watching another nation interrogate someone using a similar technique).
    We are going about this whole thing wrong and, as you and Mr. Jindal has said, we need to stop being defensive and become offensive in this venture and root out the cause and not the symptoms!
    reply from Robert: Rooting out the symtoms only tells us what is wrong…..which is something we already know. These people are acting like they have shut their brains off in order to get away without doing anything. You are right too, we need make this whole thing offensive. It is a well known fact that you cannot win a defensive war, of any kind.
