America's Fiercest Battle is at Home, Says Star Parker

Monday, December 28, 2009

Star Parker has published a thought-provoking, soul-stirring article at townhall.com today. It's entitled "The Real War Front is At Home." She points out the fact that, although America is engaged in warfare in Iraq and Afghanistan and many brave soldiers are defending freedom, the true battle takes place right here on our own soil.

She writes:

Christmas 2009 and our nation is still at war.

Afghanistan? Iraq?

Yes, of course, brave young Americans are in those far off lands defending our country. God bless them.

But the war's front is here at home. The war we are having with ourselves.

After the horrendous attacks on September 11, 2001, a few Christian pastors stepped up to say that the unprecedented violation of America's homeland was a sign of weakness within our nation.

They weren't talking about how we gather intelligence or how we check travelers at the airport.

The management bestseller from the 1960's, The Peter Principle, points out that one sign of an organization or an individual at their "level of incompetence" is thinking that re-organizing alone solves problems. Drawing new organization charts or moving around furniture is a lot easier than getting to the heart of understanding what is causing failure.

The weakness which led to our vulnerability on that infamous September day, said those pastors, was moral, not technical. For this, they were widely denounced.

[...]

Today, after allowing a terrorist to operate within the ranks of our own military, and, after he did his devastating work at Fort Hood, we refuse to identify him as a terrorist.

We view the maniacs running Iran as negotiating partners while we ignore the Iranian youth who struggle and long to be free.

We sit with silent acceptance as the Israelis, once viewed as friends and allies, are given a choice by Hamas to release 1000 prisoners, many convicted terrorists, in exchange for one Israeli soldier held hostage.

But most inscrutable is that as we end the decade, a decade spent fighting for freedom, our own nation is decidedly less free and as result, weaker. And we have consciously chosen this outcome.

It's time for this nation's leaders to wake up before we can no longer recognize this country and what made her great.

This is the startling truth. What will it take for the general population to wake up? I pray for our homeland protection, since apparently our government is not taking it seriously.

Every once in a while in life you get a comment from a...shall we say...not so nice person who happens to live in Dallas, TX and is so brave he/she posts ANONYMOUSLY but instantly gets REJECTED! LOL!

He/she shall see this comment because he/she is just so "concerned" and so very hooked! Dare I say it again? Yes, I dare: LOL!

I say this with a pretty heart. Get it, Texas?

And thanks for your interest in my romantic life. How touching, but that's okay: I'll pass on being introduced to one of your friends. Here I go again: LOL!

Texas is worried about my thighs and my...hair?! Is that what we call personal attacks? Yep! To be expected from the...well, you know.

I understand, though: my post about Star Parker's article really was hateful and warranted it! I mean, lock me up.

God bless you, Texas, for His love is enough. And tell your peeps I said the same. Peace IN!
