Liberalism renders our country mad. Literally. It moves intelligent people to embrace suicidal craziness. On 9/11, 19 hijackers from the Middle East, let in on tourist visas with minimal scrutiny, undertook the murderous attacks. Today we’re talking about letting in 10,000 refugees from Syria, many of whom are young men. Syria is in the mist of a three way war, of which two factions–Assad and ISIS–are hostile to the US, and vice versa. The third faction, the so-called moderate opposition, is practically non-existent. Even they are not-so-moderate, as al Nusra, an al Qaeda affiliate, is their main fighting force.
Let’s not forget that the Boston Bombers were Chechen “refugees.” We did not start this war in Syria, we cannot stop it, and we have no moral or other responsibility to the refugees. We certainly do not need to risk the lives of ordinary Americans to show our bona fides.
The best way to honor the dead of 9/11 is to prevent such an attack from ever happening again. And the most surefire way to do that is to keep additional Muslims and Arabs from entering our country, deporting those here illegally, and monitoring closely those who remain. While most are obviously peaceful people fleeing for their lives or simply seeking a better life, we cannot easily tell who is who, and the benefit to our country from their entry is nearly nonexistent.
