Remember — By Beulah McKee

Do many of you remember Pan Am 103? The plane bombed from the sky over Lockerbie? It happened December 21st, 1988 with all those aboard unaware of their fate.

As the ‘Maid of the Sea’ pushed back from the gate, it was behind schedule, the take-off was late but Terrorists had determined this to be a doomed flight. All those aboard would die that night.

As the plane took to the sky, headed out to sea, it had to pass over Lockerbie. Already flying at 31,000 feet and so, the explosion was unheard of those down below.

As parts of the plane fell to the ground, they came to land on a once quiet town. My son was one of the passengers that had been inside, whose bodies would come to rest on their countryside.

Though the oceans of tears those of us cried, over the years have mostly all dried. They have left us with memories that will ever remain, to come to mind again and again.

So–do many of you remember Pan Am 103? The plane that was bombed from the sky over Lockerbie? It happened long ago on December 21st, 1988 and yet, it’s a date that no one must ever forget.

We cannot, we must not ever forget.

We Remember Them

At the rising of the sun and its going down, We remember them.

At the blowing of the wind and the chill of the Winter,
We remember them.

At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of Spring,
We remember them.

At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of Autumn,
We remember them.

At the beginning of the year and when it ends, We remember them.

As long as we live, they too will live, for they are now part of us as
we remember them.

When lost and sick at heart, We remember them.

When we have joy we crave to share, We remember them.

When we have decisions that are difficult to make,
We remember them.

When we have achievements that are based on theirs,
We remember them.

As long as we live they too will live, for they are now a part of us as
we remember them.

Remembering the Victims of Pan Am 103

Obama’s Indecisive New Foreign Policy Initiative

General Colin Powell’s enduring contribution to American Foreign Policy is the Powell Doctrine which states that the following questions must be answered before military action may be taken by the United States:

1.Is a vital national security interest threatened?

2. Do we have a clear attainable objective?

3.Have the risks and costs been fully analyzed?

4.Have all other non-violent means been fully exhausted?

5. Is there a plausible exit strategy?

6. Have the consequences of our actions been fully considered?

7. Is the action supported by the American people?

8. Do we have genuine broad international support?

The Powell Doctrine has three main precepts: (1) Avoid Mission Creep; (2) Clearly define our goals; (3) plan an exit strategy before engaging the enemy. Obama’s Libyan intervention flunks on all three counts.

Avoid Mission Creep: Its too late for that now, the mission has already crept, it was sold as a “No Fly Zone” over Libya to stop Qaddafi’s Air Force from pounding rebel positions—even the odds. Of course, there would be a need to neutralize Qaddafi’s air defenses to protect our planes as they patrolled the skies over Libya but already its clear, that we’re bombing everything in sight.

Defined War Goals: The only one stated is to protect innocent civilians from Qaddafi’s Military, how are we going to fully implement this strategy from the air remains unanswered. In any event, Obama seems to be fully confused between his stated goal of regime change saying that Qaddafi must leave Libya on the one hand and protecting civilians.

If it is now the stated foreign policy of the United States to protect civilians from Islamic Terrorist Thugs such as Qaddafi, why hasn’t Obama inserted the U.S. Military into the skies over American ally Israel, protecting innocent civilians from the bombardment of Grad type rockets fired by Islamic Terrorist Thugs from Gaza into Ashkelon?

While Libyan Dictator Qaddafi is most certainly a legitimate target by the United States for his complicity in the murders of 269 innocent people and Andrea Rosenthal, who were murdered on Pan Am 103 when a bomb exploded aboard the aircraft on the 21 December, 1988 over Lockerbie, Scotland the stated purpose of Obama’s prosecution of the new front in Libya, wasn’t to bring Qaddafi to justice but to protect civilians.

Where does Obama’s new foreign policy initiative of protecting civilians by Islamic Terrorist Thugs take the United States Military to next? Why hasn’t Barack Obama protected innocent Christians from being slaughtered in Iran, Syria, Pakistan, Indonesia, Somalia and Nigeria?
