This is a good read, another thread from 2b2k.
The following is an an excellent compendium of acts of war against sleeping USA. Anybody here read the book At Dawn We Slept. ? Pearl Harbor, 1941.
Doesn't get any better in describing how lackadaisical we become. We're in the same mode now.
Not very long, but very informative. You have to read the catalogue of events in this brief piece. Then, ask yourself how anyone can take the position
that all we have to do is bring our troops home from Iraq, sit back, re-set the snooze alarm, go back to sleep, and no one will ever bother us again.
In case you missed it, World War III began in November 1979... that alarm has been ringing for years.
U.S. Navy Captain Ouimette is the Executive Officer at Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Florida. Here is a copy of the speech he gave last month. It is
an accurate account of why we are in so much trouble today and why this action is so necessary.
AMERICA NEEDS TO WAKE UP!
That's what we think we heard on the 11th of September 2001 (When more than 3,000 Americans were killed) and maybe it was, but I think it should have
been "Get Out of Bed!" In fact, I think the alarm clock has been buzzing since 1979 and we have continued to hit the snooze button and roll over for
a few more minutes of peaceful sleep since then.
