It seems like only yesterday. Whatever we were doing that day, a Tuesday like today, was interrupted by news reports of an airplane striking one of the World Trade Center towers, followed by the second tower, the Pentagon and a field in western Pennsylvania. Everything after that happened so fast then that it's hard to believe that more than half a decade has gone by.

The War on Terror is far from over, yet we still have the shrill calls to bring the troops home. In other words, surrender.

We are the United States of America. We do not Surrender!

The War on Terror must be won, and it must be won decisively. There will be no cease-fire, there will be no armistice. No Kumbayah. Even if there was, time and again has shown that many Middle Eastern nations simply cannot be trusted with treaties and the like.

No, the enemy must be totally vanquished, vanquished to the point that their survivors know the futility of ever taking up arms against the United States again. If they cannot be made to love us, they must be made to fear us.

Today, as we go about our daily chores, let us remember both the victims of the atrocities that befell us six years ago today (It seems that there are less than "six degrees of separation" between many Monmouth County residents and the victims of 9/11/01.) and the troops fighting in faraway lands to protect us.
