5 Years Later

As everyone is doing their “5 year retrospectives” about the events of 9/11, one of the best I have come across is Why We Fight. Here is just an excerpt…

Islamic fascism is not why we fight, it’s what we fight. The distinction is more than merely rhetorical. For all our necessary emphasis on what we’re fighting — Islamic terrorists bent on the destruction of the West and the establishment of a new caliphate — we cannot forget what we’re fighting for.

The United States of America is the last best hope of Western civilization, and we fight because we know our way of life is worth defending to the last man. As we reflect back upon the events of September 11, 2001, let us humbly remind ourselves why it is that we fight.

Let us remember that no great civilization is defeated from without until it is first defeated from within.
