Ten Years Later

Ten Years later, the words FDR spoke in December 1941 resonate in relation to 09/11:

" No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people, in their righteous might, will win through to absolute victory.

I believe that I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger.

With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbounding determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph. So help us God."

President Franklin D. Roosevelt - December 8, 1941

The United States has hunted down OBL and his henchmen and we will not rest until those who were in league with him are relegated to the dustbin of History.

We remember - We will not forget - We will honor all who were lost and all who have stood up to defend our Nation, our Allies and our way of life.

To our enemies, we will find you and bring you to justice. So help us God.
