It doesn't get any worse than this. Think of the fall of Saigon to the North Vietnamese Communists. The takeover of Iran by the Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979. Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge routing out the last government forces in Phom Penh in 1976. And even the fall of Paris to Hitler and the Nazis in 1941.
From the overseas press AFP, comes this report, "Islamists, Al-Qaeda gain ground in troubled Mali" (via Google News):
The Islamists had been fighting with the Tuareg, despite having different objectives, but on Monday they chased their erstwhile allies out of the fabled city Timbuktu, flanked by the notorious Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) leader, Mokhtar Belmokhtar.(Emphasis added).
"Timbuktu has passed its first night under Sharia, everything is calm in town," civil servant Saliou Thiam told AFP by telephone from the ancient trading city...
City residents reported women were being ordered to wear veils and stop wearing trousers.
So, where are the freedom advocates in the United States? Where is the U.S. libertarian movement? Why the silence? Where's the outrage?
The Islamist are attacking the Free World on all fronts. And all the while we in the West are asleep.
