Celebrating Victory with Pride, Innocence or Insanity?

One must respond to those complaining about Americans celebrating the military’s success in killing Osama Bin Laden.  Small children may not comprehend why grown people were out in the streets rejoicing over the death of one man.  But for grown people to write blogs, such as one on the Huffington Post, calling his death a “Revenge” killing––it is time to say enough!  When television newscasters allow men women to call the nation’s joyous reaction to his death “shameful”––it is more than past time to say enough!

 For the last nine plus years, most adult Americans realize that we were attacked on our own shores by three gruesome cowardly acts, devised by Bin Laden, who believed he could reduce our nation to shame, defeat and poverty by: destroying our economy––represented by the twin towers in New York; our political system––represented by the plane intended to hit the White House; and our military might––represented by the simultaneous attack on the Pentagon.

 Listen! in those acts, Bin Laden declared war on the United States of America.  And for nearly 10 years, this nation’s Armed Forces and intelligence networks have been fighting back against the attackers––the chief one of which was Osama Bin Laden.  In a war, when you kill an enemy, it is not “Revenge!”  It is not seen as “Retaliation!”  It is called attacking and defeating an enemy determined to kill more Americans than the 3,000 he has already murdered.

 Certainly those brave men and women who diverted the plane intended for the White House to a field in Pennsylvania understood that it was war.  And with only a few seconds to comprehend that our nation was in peril, they gave their very lives to stop that third plane from reaching its target.  Would those weeping willows crawling over media now claim that these heroes were retaliating?

 What kind of psychology is this?  It must be some new study called “How to Treat Adult Children.”  As for those underage children also wondering about the celebration of his death, parents should explain that there really are evil people in the world,  some of whom are so full of satanic purpose that they cannot be treated with counseling or kindness or anything else.  Herman Melville wrote a novel called Billy Budd.  The main character was a young man who was so innocent he failed to comprehend that his captain was insanely evil.  Eventually the captain killed the innocent one.  Melville’s point: blind innocence is dangerous ignorance.

 It is stupid to try to coddle a snake.  In wholesale Christian Bibles, The Lord Jesus commands us to be “wise as serpents, and harmless as doves” (Matthew 10: 16).   He also says: “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy” (Luke 10: 19). America’s soldiers understand that when a snake attacks the nation they must kill it.  As for these adult children: like Billy Budd, their childish lack of comprehension is indeed hopeless!
