Trump Sends Warning to Taliban on 9/11 Anniversary

By Mairead McArdle

President Trump honoured the memory of the victims on the 18th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks Wednesday by sending a grim warning to the Taliban terrorist group, which claimed responsibility for the death of an American soldier last week.

“For every American who lived through that day, the September 11 attack is seared into our soul,” Trump said at the Pentagon during a ceremony marking the anniversary. “It was a day filled with shock, horror, sorrow and righteous fury.”

Trump called off a meeting planned for last Sunday at Camp David with Taliban leaders and representatives of the Afghanistan government after the Taliban claimed its members had carried out a suicide bombing Thursday in Kabul that killed twelve people, including a U.S. soldier.

“They thought they would use this attack to show strength but what they actually showed is unrelenting weakness,” the president said. “We have hit our enemy harder than they have ever been hurt before and that will continue. If for any reason they come back to our country, we will go wherever they are and use power the likes of which the United States has never used before — and I’m not talking about nuclear power. They will never have seen anything like what will happen to them.”

And he does what he says.

Just a little warning not to mess with the USA

This comment from GP very much accords with my own view:

Wow! No fear on this one , hes back on the boil and full steam ahead

An extract from his website

If this is a war, there’s no agreement on what we’re up against: Terrorism? Islamic terrorism? Islamic extremism? Islam? Whatever it is, a president who, on the campaign trail, mocked his predecessor’s inability to use the words “radical Islam” himself eschewed all mention of the I-word today. September 11th 2001 was supposedly “the day everything changed” – if by “everything changed” you mean “the rate of mass Muslim immigration to the west doubled”.

As that absurd statistic suggests, we are not where I thought we would be 16 years on: We run around fighting for worthless bits of barren sod like Helmand province in Afghanistan, while surrendering day by day some of the most valuable real estate on the planet, such as France and Sweden.

Yesterday President Trump said he was committed to ensuring that terrorists “never again have a safe haven to launch attacks against our country”.

By that he means “safe havens” in Afghanistan. But the reason the west’s enemies are able to pile up a continuous corpse count in Paris, Nice, Berlin, Brussels, London, Manchester, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Orlando, San Bernadino, Ottawa, Sydney, Barcelona, [Your Town Here] is because they have “safe havens” in France, Germany, Britain, Scandinavia, North America, etc. Which “safe havens” are likely to prove more consequential for the developed world in the years ahead?

Who’s winning what turf? After 16 years of western military occupation, the Taliban control more territory in Afghanistan than at any time since the first US troops went in.
On the other hand, after 16 years of accelerating Islamic immigration, Europe has more no-go zones, more sharia courts, more refugees, more covered women, more Muslim-dominated schoolhouses, more radical mosques, more female genital mutilation, more grooming and gang rape, more Muslim Brotherhood front groups, more Muslim mayors and legislators, more Muslim-funded Middle East Studies programs at universities …and fewer churches, fewer Jews in Toulouse, fewer gays in Amsterdam, fewer unaccompanied women out after dark in German and Swedish cities, fewer historical representations of Mohammed in Continental museums, art galleries and scholarly books, fewer mixed bathing sessions at municipal swimming pools, fewer lessons on the Crusades and the Holocaust in European schools …and less and less free speech in some of the oldest democracies on earth.

In Afghanistan, we’re fighting for something not worth winning, and we’re losing. In Europe, Islam is fighting for something very much worth winning, and they’re advancing.

Steyn has been warning of the dangers of Islam in the West for a couple of decades. No one has listened. In fact his homeland of Canada has tried to jail him for anti Islamic sentiments. How this dude is still alive is beyond me. His books should be stuffed down the throats of all Western liberals in the vain hope that by some weird osmosis they may finally understand the problem.

The USA invaded the Taliban’s lands. Not the other way around. The Taliban have attacked no one outside of their tribal borders.

911 was done by the USA backed country of Saudi Arabia.

An absurd war. Bring the troops home to protect the US border.
