“We will not be cowed by these sick terrorists,” said British Prime Minister David Cameron after ISIS produced a grisly video of the mass beheading of Syrian captives by jihadis.

You hear this sort of rhetoric from Western leaders all the time, but Harper went on to demonstrate exactly how they get it wrong. “[This] will lead us to … redouble our efforts to work with our allies … against the terrorist organizations who brutalize those in other countries with the hope of bringing their savagery to our shores,” he said.

  1. The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first. – Thomas Jefferson

    • Good reply Chris, and well said Mr. Jefferson, only it’s too late to achieve President Jefferson’s idea. The second are the terrorists and most americans naively believe mainstream media and their leaders. If you tell a lie long enough, people will believe it. That is partly how Hitler’s takeover grew as far as it did. That being said, most americans believe “we are the good guys” and granted there are some good people out there but as a generality the cold hard truth is we are really the bad guys pretending to be the “good” guys. Maybe one day we will stop talking about being the “good” guys and actually be it (like we once were).
