I spent nearly a decade of my life in cold war “West Germany.” I have been to Ramstein Air Base and Rhein Main Air Base and also to the Frankfurt Airport more times than I can recall. Also, I have been a passenger on countless military shuttle bus rides in and around Germany’s US military communities. These busses carry everything from school children, to military personnel going to and from work and families headed for the shopping centers. For would be attackers, they are soft targets. They are not defended, they are low risk, and they produce maximum damage, and provide maximum impact.
The attack on Air Force personnel at the Frankfurt Airport, we are told, is another lone wolf attack. Just another guy who woke up in the morning and decided, not influenced by anyone or any group, to go out and shoot up a bus load of Americans while praising his Muslim god. He was an employed German born citizen obviously suffering from American oppression.
The lone wolf attacks are adding up, but our government will not properly label them as terrorism. In mental health circles, I believe this is called suicidal ideation. We had the mass murdering Army major at Fort Hood. We had a would be bloomers bomber and the Times Square bomber. We had the shooting at the Arkansas military recruiting station. We also had the recent Texas Jihadi. There are probably more that I don’t even recall. Most thinking people can see a developing pattern here and an obvious common denominator. We are left to wonder how many of these so-called lone wolf killers are roaming the streets in American communities.
I imagine out in the wild there is a lone wolf or two running outside the pack, but I am fairly certain they are of a single motivation and influence. They are influenced by their need to survive, which motivates them to kill something and eat it. Our lone wolves are too of a single motivation and influence.
The United States Attorney General, when asked about it, was unable to bring himself to say that radical Islam influenced any of our so-called lone wolf killers or want to be killers. The chief law enforcement officer of the land cannot concede that these hopeful killers have a common motivation, which is to kill infidels preferably of the American and Jewish variety that originates from a common influence. Islam. Holder is not an imbecile, so I do not know what conclusions to draw from his inability to concede the obvious and then work hard to protect Americans from it. Unless these are also the Attorney General’s people.
When asked if the attack in Germany was considered a terrorist attack, State Department spokesman P. J. Crowley asked, “Was the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords a terrorist attack? I mean, you have to look at the evidence and look at the motivation and then you make a judgment.” Wow! P. J., there was come commonality, both were lunatics. One however, was influenced by his psychosis and the other by his religion, which tells him to kill infidels. Even the stupid infidels who work for the State Department.
These people are killing or trying to kill Americans while proclaiming the greatness of their Muslim god. Hey Eric, in police work I am told they call that a clue and modus operandi. If you believe that any of these murderers decided of their own volition and without any outside influence to murder or attempt to murder Americans, there is probably room for you in our current State Department or US Attorney General’s Office or at a minimum a seat on the United Nations Human Rights Commission now that Libya lost their spot.
In Iran, when the people wanted to rid themselves of the Islamic theocracy, our national position was to “not meddle.” In Egypt where the secular regime was friendly toward America we cheered for a new government. As daffy Khadafy bombs, shoots and strafes his own we offer little beyond stern finger wagging.
We have yoked ourselves to this region and to the Islamic culture that is irreconcilably incompatible with our freedom and representative form of government. We are engaged in a war that is as old as Isaac and Ishmael and it will continue until the last confrontation between good and evil. We cannot stop it, but we do need to have leaders with common sense enough to protect us as they are sworn to.
The angel of the LORD also said to her [Hagar]: “You are now pregnant and you will give birth to a son. You shall name him Ishmael, for the LORD has heard of your misery. He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers.” Genesis 16:11-12
