WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)

Right war, right place, right time
Filed in: Current Affairs

MSM echoes the Kerry campaign that the continued spate of beheadings are a sign that Iraq is the wrong war - at the wrong place - at the wrong time.

What the beheadings prove is just the opposite. Ready? You've taken your little red pill today, right?

A common method that is used in the matrix we live in is to talk about something obliquely as if just saying a word conveys its real meaning.

When I ask my friends what they think the beheadings in Iraq are like they explain that they visualize the guillotine or a scimitar - something certainly quick and clean and served up with the dignity any Westerner would expect from such a proceeding. You know, it's too bad that it's happening, it's just the insurgent's method to get attention on their demands.

What they really are is beyond the worst possible thing that we can imagine - remember now you've promised that you've taken your red pill - these are the most egregious, horrible, evil acts in human history.

These masked swine read a condemnation behind a bound, sometimes blindfolded, always terrified (too often an American citizen) human being. The reader seizes his helpless prey and begins to saw at their throat with what in some cases looks like an oversized steak knife or a small machete. This is anything but a clean, quick operation. Imagine all the blood in all the Hollywood movies you have ever seen and this might equal the amount that emits in great gouts from each hapless victim - while they helplessly struggle against their bonds and the outpouring of their life blood. The murderer stays at his task for up to a couple of minutes until he secures his blood soaked prize - typically placing it on the lifeless body. The murderer and his assemblage then praise their bloodthirsty god.

You know, even the forgoing doesn't really convey what it takes to see what they are doing for what it really is. Really, you have to watch this death cult in action - as revolting as that is - because in seeing them you will LEARN who they are.

So here's an assignment - fortified with your red pill (you choose to escape the matrix) - go watch them. Go to your favorite search engine and look for 'beheading video' - watch what they do to Nick Berg, Eugene Armstrong or another of your fellow citizens. Fair warning: This will forever change you. When you watch our enemy do what they do you will never get used to it, you will never be hardened to its effect. I cannot bear to watch these videos more than once - but I force myself to watch each one as it is published - because this is what is really happening to my countrymen.

So go now, if you will, then return - I'll wait here...

You know that utter feeling of revulsion that you are feeling now? That's what any honest, thinking human being will feel when they see the bloodthirsty killing of another. That's the true face of our enemy. Now you know - and you know in a way that nothing and no one else will show you.

Why the right war? We are in a war on terror - you've just seen terror in its naked guise. And understand this - what the terrorists are communicating to you by doing this and by providing you a view of their terror is that they want to do this to YOU - YOU personally - and your family and everyone you know or love. They think of this almost all the time and it is their greatest desire. This is the right war.

Why the right place? Would you rather face them in Baghdad? Or would you prefer Detroit, Los Angeles perhaps, maybe Seattle? We went to their doorstep and we have found them. Don't believe the MSM's suggestions that they just showed up there because we were there. They will not easily let Iraq go. It’s the right place.

Why the right time? If nothing else we are now in a position to question everything that we have been fed by the MSM for decades. Why has no news organization shown the American public the true face of our enemy? Because they don't show death and destruction on television? Please! Because they won't stoop to displaying what amounts to snuff film to the public? Right! If every adult American saw what you have just seen - there would be sufficient public will to complete this war against all enemies in all places in all countries for all time. It's the right time.

UPDATE: Iraq is not the only place terrorized by the inhuman.
