We are at WAR

The following is a second e-mail I received while my connection was down and again dealing with the War against Terrorism.  I received this from a second unrelated individual on August 23, 2006.  Again quoting from the e-mail:

“The WAR


Please take the time to read the attached essay by Dr. Chong.  It is without a doubt the most articulate and convincing writing I have read regarding the War in Iraq.  If you have any doubts please open your mind to his essay and give a fair evaluation.

I had no idea who Dr. Chong is or the source of his thoughts….  So when I received them, I almost deleted them—as well-written as they are.  But then I did a ‘Google search’ on the Doctor and found him to be a retired Air Force Surgeon of all things and past Commander of Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio.  So he is real, is connected to Veterans affairs in California, and these are his thoughts.  They are worth reading and thinking about!  (The same Google search will direct you to some of his other thought-provoking writings.)

Please forward this to any you feel may want, or NEED to read it.  Our leaders in Congress ought to read it, too.  There are those that find fault with our country, but it is obvious to anyone who truly thinks through this, that we must UNITE!

If you would like to see who this fellow is go to this Air Force web site and look him up.

Subject: Muslims, terrorists and the USA.  A different spin on Iraq war.

This WAR is for REAL!  Dr. Vernon Chong, Major General, USAF, Retired

Tuesday, July 12, 2005

To get out of a difficulty, one usually must go through it.  Our country is now facing the most serious threat to its existence, as we know it, that we have faced in your lifetime and mine (which includes WWII).

The deadly seriousness is greatly compounded by the fact that there are very few of us who think we can possibly lose this war and even fewer who realize what losing really means.

First, let’s examine a few basics:

  1. When did the threat to us start?
   Many will say September 11, 2001.  The answer as far as the United States is concerned is 1979, 22 years prior to September 2001, with the following attacks on us:

  • Iran Embassy Hostages, 1979;
  • Beirut, Lebanon Embassy, 1983;
  • Beirut, Lebanon Marine Barracks 1983;
  • Lockerbie, Scotland Pan-Am flight to New York 1988;
  • First New York World Trade Center attack 1993;
  • Dhahran, Saudi Arabia Khobar Towers Military complex 1996
  • Nairobi, Kenya US Embassy 1998
  • Dares Salaam, Tanzania US Embassy 1998
  • Aden, Yemen USS Cole 2000;
  • New York World Trade Center 2001;
  • Pentagon 2001

(Note that during the period from 1981 to 2001 there were 7,581 terrorist attacks worldwide.)

(Note that the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon which occurred basically on the same day at the same time were the 10th and the 11th attacks on the U.S. since 1979.  These two attacks were not the first time we were attacked on U.S. soil.  The first attack on the World Trade Center was, of course, an attack on U.S. soil.  However, according to International Law, every U.S. embassy and its land is U.S. soil.  Therefore, the four attacks against U.S. embassies were also all attacks against the U.S. on U.S. soil.  Jimmy Carter was President during the first listed attack.  Ronald Reagan was President for attacks two through four.  The first world Trade Center attack occurred in February of 1993 when Bill Clinton was President.  In all, five of the attacks occurred while Bill Clinton was President.  Of course, The 2nd World Trade Center attack and the attack on the Pentagon occurred on September 11, 2001 approximately eight months after George Bush became President.—my addition)

  1. Why were we attacked?
   Envy of our position, our success, and our freedoms.  The attacks happened during the Administrations of Presidents Carter, Reagan, Bush 1 (If the dates are correct on the eleven listed attacks, the author is not correct about any of the attacks occurring during the first Bush Administration.  George Bush, the father, was elected in 1988 and took office in January of 1989.  Since he only served one term, he left office in January of 1993 and the first World Trade Center attack occurred in February of 1993.—my addition), Clinton and Bush 2.  We cannot fault either the Republicans or Democrats as there were no provocations by any of the presidents or their immediate predecessors Presidents Ford or Carter.

  1. Who were the attackers?
   In each case, the attacks on the U.S. were carried out by Muslims.

  1. What is the Muslim population of the World?

  1. Isn’t the Muslim Religion peaceful?
   Hopefully, but that is really not material.  There is no doubt that the predominately Christian population of Germany was peaceful, but under the dictatorial leadership of Hitler (who was also Christian), [I would emphatically disagree with this statement.  He may have claimed to be Christian.  He may have grown up in a Christian environment.  However, as a Christian, I will testify that his actions and beliefs were inherently unchristian.  Anyone can claim to be Christian; that claim does not make him Christian.  The same is true for being Muslim.  Claiming to be Muslim does not necessarily make one Muslim—my addition] that made no difference.  You either went along with the administration or you were eliminated.  There were 5 to 6 million Christians killed by the Nazis (Proof that Hitler was not a Christian along with many other actions.—my addition) for political reasons (including 7,000 Polish priests).  (See  [I did not check any of the websites listed.—my addition]      

Thus, almost the same number of Christians were killed by the Nazis, as the six million holocaust Jews who were killed by them, and we seldom heard of anything other than the Jewish atrocities.  Although Hitler kept the world focused on the Jews, he had no hesitancy about killing anyone who got in his way of exterminating the Jews or taking over the world—German, Christian or any others.

Same with the Muslim terrorists.  They focus the world on the U.S., but kill all in the way—their own people or the Spanish, French or anyone else.  (Many more fellow Muslims have been murdered in Iraq by terrorists than U.S. military personnel who have been killed; they murder anyone they can because that is what terrorists do.—my addition)  The point here is that just like the peaceful Germans were of no protection to anyone from the Nazis, no matter how many peaceful Muslims there may be, they are no protection for us from the terrorist Muslim leaders and what they are fanatically bent on doing—by their own pronouncements—killing all of us ‘infidels.’  (Which includes libertine Democrats although they don’t seem to get it!—my addition)  I don’t blame the peaceful Muslims.  What would you do if the choice was shut up or die?  (I would hope it would not be shut up!—my addition)

  1. So who are we at war with?
   There is no way we can honestly respond that it is anyone other than the Muslim terrorists.  Trying to be politically correct and avoid verbalizing this conclusion can well be fatal.  There is no way to win if you don’t clearly recognize and articulate who you are fighting.”  (We are at WAR!!!  Like it or not, accept it or not, believe it or not, deny it or not; we are at WAR!!!—my addition)
