Remember why we’re fighting

I haven’t said much about the terrorist attack on the school in Beslan, Russia. I just got through reading an account of what happened there. It was horrific. They herded children, parents, and teachers into the gymnasium, raped the women, forced the men to barricade the building before killing them, denied water to the children so they had to drink their own urine.

It was so bad that even some of the terrorists apparently balked. When some of them realized that they were taking children hostage (it seems they weren’t informed of the target ahead of time), they began arguing amongst themselves, until the raid leader killed the terror group’s leader and then remote-detonated the suicide belts worn by two of the female terrorists in order to gain control.

This is what it’s come to. But should we be surprised? Have we so easily forgotten the terrorists of 9/11 who flew planes full of men, women, and children into buildings filled with the same? There is no difference between them. Both are groups of Muslim terrorists who believe that Allah tells them they must kill all infidels, adult or child, male or female.
