On February 11, 2015, retired U.S. Admiral James “Ace” Lyons spoke in Washington D.C. about our foreign policy as it relates to the war on terror. Here are a few selected quotes:
Until you recognize that Islam is the political movement masquerading as a religion, you’re never going to come to grips with it.
The Obama administration has a strategy…it’s anti-American, anti-Western, it’s pro-Islamic, it’s pro-Iranian and pro-Muslim Brotherhood.
Absent from most political rhetoric espousing intentions to secure our southern border is the one tangible form of border security necessary as a starting point to create lasting immigration reform: the border fence.
Consider San Diego. In 1996, Congress passed a bill to require construction of a double-layered fence along the coast. Despite completion of only 14 miles of the proposed 60 miles, apprehension of illegal aliens fell by 95%.
Consider Israel. Pursuant to the construction of a double-layer fence with a security zone in the middle – similar to the San Diego fence, “suicide attacks perpetrated by Arab terrorists declined by well over 90%.”
Consider the cost. Despite Israeli expenditures of $1.8 million per mile to construct their border fence, calculating the cost based on $9 million per mile (as estimated by DHS for the cost of the San Diego fence), a 700 mile double-layered fence would cost roughly $6 billion to construct. Given that, over the lifespan of each illegal alien whom is prevented from entering the United States, American taxpayers save $700,000 per individual, the cost to build the fence to ensure American sovereignty is negligible.
Build the border fence!

We are not a warlike people. Quite the opposite. We always seek to live in peace. We resort to force infrequently and with great reluctance–and only after we have determined that it is absolutely necessary. We are awed–and rightly so–by the forces of destruction at loose in the world in this nuclear era. But neither can we be naive or foolish. Four time in my lifetime America has gone to war, bleeding the lives of its young men into the sands of beachheads, the fields of Europe, and the jungles and rice paddies of Asia. We know only to well that war comes not when the forces of freedom are strong, but when they are weak. It is then that tyrants are tempted. We simply cannot learn these lessons the hard way again without risking our destruction.
– Ronald Reagan July 17, 1980
The Obama administration’s lax immigration policies have allowed a large number of terrorists with documented ties to ISIS and other radical Islamic groups into the United States, including individuals from Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Somalia and Uzbekistan who have been criminally charged in recent years.
