How To Swat Down The Flies Of Terrorism

 GROUND ZER0, New York, N.Y.--Mar. 24, 2004 -- The most powerful politicians of the past decade testified the other day that "Terrorism is here to stay."
       Representing 14 years' experience spanning the Clinton and Bush Administrations, former and current Secretaries of State concurred that the threat of Terrorism was present prior to the attack on Nine Eleven, but that actions to stop it were blocked by a series of obstacles ranging from lack of intelligence data to lack of support for actionable military force.

The Committee is trying to shore up national defense against Terrorism

    The bipartisan 9-11 committee, comprising five Democrats and five Republicans, is seeking to place blame--if it can--and to find flaws that can be fixed to shore up national defense against Terrorism.  
       Opponents to the hearings call them political, seeking to smear the present Administration with "Monday quarterbacking" and to smear the former Administration for its lack of action against Osama bin Laden in the mid Nineties.

      Both teams of political leaders from the two administrations however noted that Terrorism is like a slippery fish and has the ability to slither through the intelligence nets.    
       As a Sentinel of Vigilance, the commission tells me that Terrorism is not a political issue.  It is a public one, dealt with best at the neighborhood family level.
       This morning, for example, White House Chief of Staff Andy Card was being interviewed by Fox News and stated that President Bush's policy after taking office was to "not swat flies."   In 200 days, he said, the President chose to attack the heart of Terrorism rather than negotiate its demise.

       The Nine Eleven Commission is attempting to perform an autopsy on the errors of leadership, but its final message will ultimately come down to the need for our nation's citizens to be more Vigilant and less Complacent.
         There is no question that America felt exempt from Terrorism prior to Nine Eleven.    Now, it is a clear target, and not for some invasion of armed troops from another nation, but rather vulnerable to a few well-disguised people with bombs strapped on their chests who blend into our community just before they explode their horror on us.
        The truth is that government cannot stop Terrorism.   Only the people can.   When 300 million people in America swat at the flies of Terrorism, they send a message to Terrorism that it isn't safe to infiltrate through the borders because they will be met by the Mothers, Fathers, Grandparents, Uncles, Aunts, Cousins and Loved Ones of Vigilance who are ready for them.   

         When the greater mass of people in America and in any land subscribe to the Pledge of Vigilance and use it in daily life to manage and evolve, Terrorism will be met with a brick wall that no bomb or threat can penetrate.
          Terrorism's greatest tools--Fear, Intimidation and Complacency--will be impotent against Vigilance's Courage, Conviction and Right Actions for future generations.
           I find it almost a diversion for the Nine Eleven Commission to be raking through the past in search of someone to pin the blame on when the real solution is in the present.    Andy Card of the White House made the comment to Fox News that the Bush Administration had offered the Commission 2.3 million documents to help them in their investigation.

On the Vigilance Voice website there are more than 1.6 million words dealing with overpowering the Beast of Terror

          On this website are more than 1.6 million words dealing with how to solve the Terrorism problem.   I suggest that the Commission take a hard look at suggesting each and every citizen take the Pledge of Vigilance as part of its role to sate the American public's thirst to find a solution to future Terrorism.
          Looking for Vigilance seems a much more worthy effort than looking for the cancer of Terrorism in our own veins.
          Take the Pledge of Vigilance.  Swat the down the Flies of Terrorism.
