Americans travel around the world doing business, spreading ideas, creating wealth, creating jobs, spreading freedom. Does anyone else do this? No. Europeans create basically no jobs. When they run around the world they spread arrogance, not jobs, liberty and wealth. Some Asians do, but mostly they are traveling to America to do it.
So now we have ridiculous airline “security” managed by some of the most intellectually-challenged employees in America to make it more difficult and expensive (and annoying) to travel.
Of course, the Brits know the answer – create a commission on why Muslims hate airplanes. The stupidity boggles the mind.
They LOVE airplanes. How else can a bunch of backwards, 7th-century barbarians spread violence and death on a large scale? If we pulled all aircraft from the skies, Islamofascist terror would stop outside the borders of the countries that have allowed local Muslims to terrorize the populations. This would include the Middle East and much of Western Europe. Why is it a bad thing that those societies should reap what they have sowed?
Here’s an idea: Decide that freedom, liberty, education, Western Liberal traditions, all are more important than some 7th-century civilization, and quarantine them instead of quarantining everyone else in the world every time we want to go somewhere, do something, create jobs, wealth or opportunity.
This has to be addressed. Muslim terror has to stop. It cannot be stopped through namby-pamby hearts-and-minds nonsense. If they won’t reform themselves, if they won’t wage peace on their populations and mosques and schools, then we can wage peace and leave ‘em all Resting In Peace.
Then the rest of the world – that part living in the modern age – can get back to work, travel, play and the creation of opportunity in modern lands.
