Murder Most Foul … Alan Caruba
J.D. Longstreet | July 21, 2012
As this is being written it is early Friday morning as the news media saturates us with what I call the â€œFive Known Facts Syndromeâ€, repeating the details of the Colorado movie theatre murders reported to have taken the lives of twelve victims with some fifty who have been injured.
We have a selective response to such news, a mixture of grief and anger that such events occur and focused on the fact it has happened here in the United States. That is only natural, but it also ignores the murders occurring throughout the world, whether it is the killing of Israeli tourists in Bulgaria earlier this week or the ongoing slaughter of an estimated 17,000 Syrians by yet another Middle East dictator.
Meanwhile Iran moves relentlessly toward the development of nuclear weapons that, if allowed to be built, will murder millionsâ€”first targeting Israel and then most certainly America. All the supposed â€œdiplomacyâ€ and â€œsanctionsâ€ in the world will not deter this predictable outcome.
Whether a movie theatre in Colorado or the attack on an entire nation, it speaks to the madness that exists worldwide, emanating in the Middle East, but which we have seen in Madrid, London, Bali, U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya, and culminating in New York and Washington, D.C. on 9/11.
The President is scheduled to speak to the nation before Noon today and is not likely to make mention of the Fort Hood murders on November 5, 2009, but is very likely to call for more stringent gun control legislation at the same time the United Nations has fashioned an international treaty to disarm the worldâ€™s citizens and leave them even more vulnerable to tyranny.
The history of â€œcivilizationâ€ is the history of warfare and terror. It is the history of individual assassinations that trigger wars or grandiose dreams of continental and worldwide domination.
The most dangerous creatures on Earth are humans and murder occurs daily whether it is an Islamic â€œhonor killingâ€ or the murder of a store clerk during a robbery for a few dollars. In Chicago these days the rate of murders rivals the deaths in Afghanistan. In hard times, the murder rate increases with the levels of desperation. The drug wars are a contributing factor in our nationâ€™s cities.
We live in a nation that has jettisoned much of the moral guidelines that distinguished our society, our culture, abandoning the simple act of a morning prayer in the nationâ€™s schools, the definition of marriage, and culminating in a federal government that sanctioned the â€œwalkingâ€ of guns to provision the Mexican drug cartels as a ruse to blame the sale of guns to Americans whose right is established by the Second Amendment.
The result thus far of â€œOperation Fast and Furiousâ€ has been an Attorney General held in contempt of Congress and afforded the protection of â€œexecutive privilegeâ€ by order of the President of the United States.
Meanwhile, ordinary citizens must submit to humiliating â€œpat downsâ€ in order to board an airplane while the same government fails to identify an illegal alien running a flight school that trained other illegals to do the same thing that culminated in the 9/11 attack.
The deaths of innocent movie-goers is tragic and dramatic, but the murder of a nationâ€™s economy and the dreams of its citizens to get a college degree without going into debt, hold a job, own a home, run a business, or have a secure retirement, pails in comparison.
The perpetrators of this national murder hold high office, are entrusted to act in our best interest, but instead will exploit this latest tragedy, will slander a political opponent as a â€œfelonâ€, and will continue their relentless destruction of America.
The international institution, the United Nations, will continue to turn a blind eye to the murder of Western civilization.
