The United States has been facing a formidable enemy ever since we decided to wage war on terror. The decision was made after the attacks on New York’s World Trade Center in 2001, and while progress was made, it seems like every time somebody turns over a rock, the little terrorist roaches scatter and re-colonize.
So why aren’t we stomping on those roaches, you might ask? It turns out that those who would cry foul every time someone of minority descent is punished for any crime have been seriously getting in the way of law enforcement doing their jobs.
So we tend to be lenient to those who’ve vowed to kill us, and I guess just hope that if we feed the beast, it will eat us last.
On former, possibly not so reformed, Philadelphia mob boss has another plan for how to deal with the terrorist problem in America.
The United States’ fight against terrorism has a seemingly unlikely ally, Eric Shawn reported.
Former Philadelphia mob boss Ralph Natale called terrorism the “greatest threat facing America today.”
“We’re pussycats on terrorism,” he said.
Natale was the first American boss to flip and testify for the government, a story he tells in his book, “The Last Don Standing.”
He rose to power in the late 1990s, and was given a 13-year prison sentence on racketeering and bribery charges in 2005.
Still, Natale said he wished he could be out there helping the United States take on extremism.
“Kill them,” Natale said. “As soon as they would point out a crew… give me their names, I’ll take care of business.”
“And then I would hang them in front of their houses and then call the newspapers,” he said.
Natale said he would tell the press to come see the dead terrorists so that they could publicize the message that America will not tolerate their actions.
“I could make a nice living and I could enjoy it,” he said. “It’s got to be done, and it’s got to be done now.”
His plan might be skirting due process a little, but the concept holds some merit. Swift, uncompromising penance for those who’ve planned to do us harm. It would not only eliminate those problems, but it would discourage those who are considering entering the lifestyle. While hanging people in front of their houses might be a little firmer hand than the constitution would allow, a government who will go to great and even violent lengths to protect its people is not.
We want to focus on the people who have carried out these attacks being of one central religion, but that’s really not the point that has to be focused on. The point is that someone brainwashed masses into believing that they’re justified in going on killing rampages. That’s not a protected class, that’s a mob of murderers, just like any other.
We might have some disagreements on the execution of the plan, but there’s no doubt that there’s got to be a plan. Listening to a former mob boss about what’s best for our country, in the long run, is not the traditional way of handling things, but the man does have a track record of striking fear into people’s hearts who would defy him.
Being a part of the land of the free where we don’t have to fear for our lives is great, but it won’t be great for long if we let ourselves be overtaken by bullies, masquerading as holy men.
