The Unthinkable

So, what do we do?

Terrorists are a threat, but they are a threat that we can handle and, eventually, live with. We will develop security measures. We will punish those who support them. We will find them where they live, and kill them.

Terrorism is a quantifiable threat that can be managed and, if managed properly, will not be a threat to national security. Okay, okay, only Israel manages the threat properly, but we can hope that the others are getting there.

But, what about Iran? In just a few short years Iran will have the capacity to create enough nuclear weapons to turn the world into a cinder. Managing terrorism is one thing, but a radical Islamic country in which their officials lead rallies chanting death to America? And then letting them have nuclear weapons?

Iran is ruled by those who believe that they are commanded by the Qur’an to lie to Westerners, and even to their own people. They are ruled by those who are willing to use any and all vicious means to control their own people and the countries around them.But, the scariest point is this: They are ruled by those who believe that creating world-wide destruction will bring in the Mahdi. Nothing beats an arsenal of nuclear weapons when you want to create world-wide destruction.
Do you really want to let these people have nuclear weapons?

I agree. The answer is ‘of course not’.

So? What are we prepared to do to fix the problem?

We could try invading Iran with troops and conventional weapons. We’d lose, but we could at least try.
We could bomb their nuclear facilities, but would we really know if we’d got them all? Iranians aren’t stupid. They know about bombs.

We could send in spies and sabateurs. We could fund counter-radicals and revolutionary groups to try and bring down their government, but Saddam had been doing that for years. Can we really trust that this will work?

We could send in young men and women with flowers in their hair and charm them to death.

We could send in diplomats and try and talk them to death.

Do you see anything in the above list that is even remotely useful? I certainly don’t. However, it’s not a complete list. There is one option here that is NOT listed – an option that WOULD work.

But, just because I can think of no other option… It doesn’t mean that I can think of this one either.

  1. oy…nu so last night i ended up watching a program on the discovery channel…how global warming is going to have us all under water by 2050…now i read your blog…but you see my dear you forgot one thing…Someone up there has a plan…we, down here don’t know what it is yet…but i have a feeling it does not include his Chosen Ones chanting allah hu akbar…shabbat shalom…stay safe

  2. I was sitting in church in Austin, Texas a few weeks ago talkin politics with the man next to me and he says, “I just don’t understand why people have to die…”referring to the war against Hezballah… I tell him ” We gotta get rid of the bad guy and unfortunatly there are losses on both sides and it’s a good thing I don’t have control of the BIG red button.” He laughed and the music began to play…

    Jewish Mom is right and also His Chosen Ones have to come to the realization that the Messiah was already here. His name…Jesus Christ and one day every knee will bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord! Phillipians 2:9-11 So many people don’t believe that he is the Messiah. It’s mind boggling to me Yet, they believe in gravity and that the step they are standing on will hold them up or the hand rail they grab will keep them from falling. That belief is called faith! Faith without question! When was the last time you walked out your front door and wondered if your feet were going to remain planted on the ground??? I have a friend who believes information he receives from the Discovery Channel. Folks have faith that science is correct and yet they won’t have faith that Christ is the Messiah, Gods son, who came to this earth to die on a cross so that we can have eternal life… Thru the shedding of His blood we, EVERY LAST ONE OF US, can have eternal life with Him in heaven.

    Here’s all it takes….

    First I have to admit that i’m NOT so good. I do really wrong things…Romans 3:23 states for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

    Then the only way I can truely be free from the penalty of my wrong doings is to accept a free gift.
    Roman 6:23 states For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    It’s truelly that simple!!! A childlike faith.

    If you have questions just post a comment. It may take me a while to answer as my computer crashed and I need to purchase a new one, but I will respond.

  3. There’s not much we can do about the terrorists and Iran. The only way to get rid of terrorism is to drop an atomic bomb on all the Muslim countries. Of course that will never be done.
    The reason that we can’t get rid of them is because their reasoning goes according to ancient mysticism. There’s more information in http://beingholy.com

  4. Interesting! Thank you Sam and Mr. Little for my free education..I think an Amazon link would be nice here..just a request..

    I think Pres Bush is correct. These terrorists aren’t delusional, they are just, plain evil. They’ve probably sold their souls to the devil and are using Islam as a refuge. No insanity plea for these demons. Still, living in the US, Muslims compare themselves to the same teachings of Judaism and Christianity. Why are they not saying anything? For crying out loud, we have freedom of speech..look at all of the American flag burning they do..No one has arrested those people..no unstable civilian has taken a machetti to them
