Picture of the Day


9/11 from Liberty Island

You know, this still pisses me off. And it’s times like this when I’d cheerfully advocate genocide. Seriously. I’d push the button to nuke every Muslim on the planet.

The rational part of me knows that most Muslims are peaceful people who don’t deserve to die. They had nothing to do with 9/11, and are just as outraged as I am.

But a part of me also wants revenge, in spades. And I mean over-the-top, nuclear-fire-and-brimstone revenge. Permanent revenge. Revenge so thorough that the next group of terrorists will think long and hard about the scorched-earth retribution we’ll unleash if they attack us.

Unfortunately, the rational part of me knows that that kind of revenge will simply kill a lot of innocent people. But on days like today, I really don’t care. The people in the World Trade Center were just as innocent, and Muslims cheered in the streets at the news. They cheered. What kind of “innocent” people cheer at the death of thousands?

So yeah, I’m still pissed off. But I’m a rational man, and I won’t advocate genocide, as much as I might want to. I couldn’t live with myself if I did. I certainly wouldn’t cheer about it afterward. And that’s what separates me from the radicals, I guess.

Still, it’s going to be a long time before I forgive Islam and Muslims in general. You did this to us, and you cheered.

Praise Allah that I’m not like you.

* Liberals, Peaceniks, and Bleeding Hearts: Don’t bother sending me e-mail about today’s POD. I’m not a xenophobe and you know it. I’m not a Conservative reactionary either, and you should know that as well. Besides, I know my own shortcomings better than you do, and I’m honest enough to admit them. So don’t throw stones from your glass houses. I don’t have any patience for people who lie to themselves and then try to lecture me.
