Leaning upon the spear

The strictures of PeeCee have already slain a number of soldiers at Fort Hood.  Everyone knew Major Hasan was a threat, but nobody could say it aloud, and nobody could act on the obvious.  He was part of protected class and thus couldn’t be resisted until he acted.  Once he acted, of course, it was too late.

The diaper bomber was likewise a Moslem, likewise a mortal threat to his fellow man, but likewise a member of a protected class, and likewise protected by PeeCee codes from suspicion.

In the midst of pondering how long this can keep up, we read of yet another plot by Moslems to murder Americans.  The story is still emerging, but published reports indicate a conspiracy of Moslems to poison the food in a military chow hall at Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

It’s not yet known for sure if this particular report is true, but odd as it may seem to people accustomed to proving everything in court, it’s irrelevant.  Fact is, the preponderance of terror attacks on Americans for the past few years have been perpetrated by Moslems.  Our leaders need to set aside the pretense that they haven’t noticed who’s been doing this.  To do less, as King James might have said, is to lean upon the spear.  I don’t know who first said democracy isn’t a suicide pact, but there’s never been a better time to remind everyone of this.  We can’t wait on each of 1.5 billion Moslems to act before categorizing them as posing a greater threat than the Presbyterians.

Why anyone would let a Moslem into the U.S. military became inexplicable on 9/11/01.  As of 11/5/09 (the date of Hasan’s killing spree), it began to look like a group cowardice on the part of a military command structure unwilling to name the threat and resist it.  What could we possibly say about it if this latest report turns out to be true?  It’s the sad duty of generals to send men into war, to die if necessary, for the sake of the country.  It is also the duty of generals to send themselves into a moral confrontation, and into career oblivion if necessary, for the sake of their men.  Like Kenny Rogers said, sometimes you’ve got to fight when you’re a man.
