The War On Terror According to..... Pixar?

So I'm watching "The Incredibles" right now, and reading through my friends list. While the radical anti-war leftists in their magical gumdrop candyland fantasy world have dishonored one of the few noble Democrats left in this nation, Senator Lieberman, there are those of us who remain in the real world. Democrats, seriously, WTF? Six years ago, you wanted this man to be the number two in command of the entire nation, and now, because he shows that he actually HAS a spine (unlike most of you), you've forsaken him.

And meanwhile, back in real life, British police have intercepted a terrorist plot to construct a bomb out of several components smuggled aboard a plane in seperate pieces of carry-on luggage.

For those of you who still don't get it.....

THE REAL ENEMY IS STILL OUT THERE, AND HE'S NOT IN THE WHITE HOUSE.


I started this post by referring to "The Incredibles," and I did so for a reason. There's a line in the film when the mother is explaining the very real and very significant threat that she and her children are about to face. I thought it explains perfectly what we as Americans face and why we must support this war on terror or pay as dearly as we did almost five years ago.

"Remember the bad guys on those shows you used to watch on Saturday mornings?
Well, these guys are not like those guys.
They won't exercise restraint because you're children.
They will kill you if they get the chance.
Do not give them that chance."


I'm not impressed that Oliver Stone and Nicolas Cage have released a 9/11 film so soon after the fact. The fact of the matter is that the story isn't over yet. This nation was thrust into a war on that day, not by any action of our own, but because there are literally real-life supervillains halfway around the world who want to see American lives destroyed. George W. Bush didn't start a war. All he did was return fire. And thankfully the battle rages on in THEIR territory, not in ours.

Those of you delusional and misguided people in Connecticut this week who chose to punish a decent man for facing reality should be ashamed of yourselves. What, war supporters are no longer welcome in the Democratic party? Thank goodness that mentality wasn't around in 1941. Your party used to stand for something besides isolationism and withdrawal. This "peace at all costs" philosophy of your Cindy Sheehans and Hollywood starlets can only leave this country open for attack again. While you complain about the so-called "evil" in the White House, you ignore the actual evil that exists beyond our borders. You even welcome it with open arms. While you work to build a lasting peace, or so you think, men with malicious intent work to build bombs aboard airplanes.... or out of them.

This nation was built on courage, not negotiation. We have beaten enemies, and made them allies, by confronting them and by striking back when struck.

Take a lesson from Pixar's Mrs. Incredible and the "Incredibles" family. They don't exist in the real world, but they sure understand it better than you do.
