The terrorist response

By Lucius Gantt

      It seems to me that every time the United States or some other Western nation decides to invade or talks about invading another country there is a terrorist response”!

Not too long ago, the United States obtained permission from supportive African countries to set up a place to operate and launch predator drones to kill terrorists in Africa.

That effort, however, has not curtailed organizations like Al Qaeda from recruiting members, from training members or from sending Al Qaeda fighters to other parts of the world to fight Americans and America supporters.

I thought Kenya was a peaceful place in the Motherland but recently Al-Shabab militants, allegedly linked to Al Qaeda, killed about 39 innocent people out shopping at a Kenyan mall. The terrorist group claims the murders were a response to the Kenyan government sending Kenyan troops to fight in Somalia.

Well, history shows that this recent trend of terrorists going from country to country killing people was not always so prevalent.

Al Qaeda seems to be everywhere these days. But the terrorist group was not in Iraq until an invasion resulted in the downfall of Saddam Hussein. Al Qaeda wasn’t a force in Libya until an invasion resulted in the death of Muammar Gaddafi and Al Qaeda wasn’t running rampant in Syria until western governments began to arm Al Qaeda terrorists in Syria in an at-tempt to remove the legitimate leader of the country that borders every significant country in the Middle East.

The White House’s decision to go a-long with a Russian proposed deal regarding Syria’s chemical weapons saved President Obama from a Congressional vote to invade Syria that he surely would have lost. The deal also saved Russia and Iran from getting into an unnecessary conflict that may have started World War III.

Syrian President Assad is no longer a so-called “dead man walking” and the US probably doesn’t want you to know but the deal, according to Syria, also calls for the United States to quit threatening Syria and for the US to stop sending arms to Al Qaeda members masquerading as “rebels” and freedom fighters.

Another important aspect of the deal will allow Syrian airports to openly allow shipments into the country from Russia and Iran that will allow the Syrian military to fight off the Al Qaeda terrorists that Assad said all along were the people shooting and killing Syria soldiers and civilians.

The idea that the United States is the world’s policeman is tired, outdated and possibly harmful to relations with other countries and denigrates support for government military actions from United States taxpayers.

Congress and the President are quick to consider launching million and billion dollar bombs on defenseless countries but slow to appropriate tax dollars for jobs, for education, for housing or for health care.

If the government wants to fight terrorism on foreign lands don’t send teenage soldiers, send gang members from Chicago or closet klansmen from Philadelphia. Send the fools that want to shoot people and desire to get shot at.

I do not want terrorists to respond to invasions by bombing my little country town.
