America hasn’t declared war on any country since 1941–on Japan, December 8, and then on Germany, December 10. Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and a dozen other encounters, have all been nation-building projects. War is out. The progressives of the world will simply not allow one nation to declare war on another nation. The mechanisms of war, the explosives, the carnage, is all permitted, but not the formal declaration of war. Like the ancient dignity of dueling, war has gone by the wayside. The romance of honor is long passed.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the 1941 attacks on Pearl Harbor in which more than 2,400 people died. According to the New York Times this is the last year the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association will mark the anniversary. The association will disband on Dec. 31. (AP Photo/US Navy – Daniel Barker)
Conservatives and patriots rest their souls on the honor of the last of the WWII veterans. Today, December 7, the memory of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, harbors the last of the spirits of nobility left in the country. Without the declaration of war, the United States strips all subsequent and future veterans of true patriotic honor. It is now only theory, or value homage, precious as that can be.
When, after the Arab Muslim attack on New York City on September 11, 2001, the United States failed to declare war on Saudi Arabia, our government neutered any sense of national honor. It just doesn’t exist anymore. It can’t. Only through war is national identity created and preserved. Behold, this is the very history of the United States of America. But, that history is forbidden to repeat. It is only a memory. Conservatives have become bleeding heart liberals when it comes to crying over the dead.
There is no righteousness in lamentation. There is no courage in tears for the past. It is unacceptably hypocritical to cry over the past, but not be willing to emulate those we would feign honor.
But, it is hard for a country to be honorable when its leadership is without honor, and forbids its practice.
The absence of national war–nation against nation–represents the erosion and eventual dissolution of all nations. This is the globalist, one world government plan.
America’s enemies are certainly preparing for war, as liberals in our government work to make America easily defeatable. We daren’t declare war at this point, for practical reasons, let alone politically correct submission to other races and nationalities.
It is completely irresponsible to separate a people from its government. But without national declaration of war, we continually pretend that governments are not responsible for their own people. The United States should have declared war on Saudi Arabia the minute it was known that the murderous pilots were Saudi. The idea that a few bad guys don’t represent a whole country, or even a whole religion, is irresponsible liberalism. It allows exactly what we see in the world today–mammoth perversions like the Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, open borders, and the complete abuse of Americans. It allows and encourages our enemies to claim American citizenship (like Barry Soetoro has).
What do a people do whose government has betrayed them? How do people hold their government responsible? The maniacal Muslims hold Americans responsible for it. They are willing to kill as many Americans as possible, whenever possible.
And sense when is a religion to be distinguished from the government that hosts it, that espouses it, that promotes it? Again, such thinking is what got us where we are today.
With all due respect to post-WWII veterans, America is in error on the matter of war. Today’s military is the most unusual mass of soldiery ever evolved. Our military people are missionaries! They are defending America so much as trying to spread her basic values. Our forces are not allowed to win. That isn’t why they’re engaging in warfare. Victory is not about defeating and destroying the enemy. Victory is about changing a people’s way of life, somehow.
I don’t know how our military keeps their head on straight. No wonder there are so many help and counseling services for them when they return. (Or, is that just liberals at work, denigrating human strength?) They are putting their lives on the line for line-lessness. They are spilling their blood for border-less notions of human values. Is that all America has become, an amorphous evolution of materialistic, Communist “equality”? Is America now only about making sex, religion, and race utterly undefined, or worse, ill-defined?
So, today, let’s have mercy on ourselves. Let’s remember the dignity of war, and the honor of nationhood. Let’s remember Pearl Harbor with a willingness to declare war–on other countries! Let’s remember our warriors with the courage to declare war on enemy religions. Let’s be ready to defend who and what we are–after, of course, we have determined that identity through the study of American history, our Declaration of Independence, and our Constitution.
At this point, I must say, I think a willingness to declare war must precede even our study of American history. Without such a will, we misread our own history. This is the secret of liberal success–to forbid the declaration of war. This removed the willingness to declare war, and thus erased all definition of American nationhood.
