World Trade Center in Under Attack

     The United States has been at war for over thirty years. Over that period of time American service men and women, along with U.S. civilians have been repeatedly attacked by Muslim fanatics or, as I prefer to call them, Islamofascists. These Islamic fundamentalists are indeed the modern-day fascists. Their objective is world conquest and the imposition of their version of Islam on all humanity. They ruthlessly murder Americans, non-Muslims and those fellow co-religionists who do not follow their version of Islam.

     Are we really at war? You need to be blind to think that we are not. America, look at the facts.
