On September 11, 2001 2,996 Americans were murdered in cold blood by radical Islamic terrorists. These 2,996 Americans who died should never be and will never be forgotten by our country no matter how bad many in society wish to turn a blind eye to terrorism. And we as a country are still fighting a very costly and dangerous war against terrorism in 2016, fifteen years later.
The economic costs of 9/11 and the subsequent fifteen years have been staggering in my opinion. If one adds the damage to our infrastructure on 9/11 along with the rebuilding process and the additional costs of security and our never ending wars in Iraq and the Middle East, we may estimate upwards of over $5 Trillion dollars has been spent so far with no end in sight. Air flight has been impacted due to long security check point lines and the inspection of luggage. The TSA has morphed into a $7 Billion dollar a year bureaucracy financed minimally by travelers $2.50 per airplane ticket tax. And are we more secure than the morning of 9/11/2001?
And why haven't we won the war against terrorism yet? Why? Because we have allowed our Congress to fight the war on terrorism instead of our military? Because we have become politically correct in our views of terrorists? Do some individuals in our country wish for this terrorism to occur? At what price do we continue to pay for our supposed safety and well being against an enemy who in my opinion should have been eliminated many years ago?
On September 11, 2001 2,996 Americans were murdered in cold blood by radical Islamic terrorists.
Please do not forget these individuals who gave their lives on that day. And please do not forget the many thousands more who have been murdered in all of the other terrorists attacks and wars throughout the world since 9//11/2001.
Terrorism needs to be eliminated. There is strength in powerful leaders who wish to eliminate terrorism. Think about it this November. End it now.
