Interesting Note: I was asked to remove the picture of a soldier that I displayed here from http://druid.takeover.nl/thesis/uploads/soldier-scr2.jpg - see the comment posted about this by the creator of the image. (6:34AM Aug 16, 2005)

I agree that we always had them. But does it mean that it is necessary? Does it have to be either anarchy or mass destruction?

When the WTC was hit, innocent people died. When the US hit back, innocent people died.

Regarding the comment above , I didn't get your stand. One of the events triggered the other. So, you can only condemn one, but not the both. Your stand sounds more of a rhyme than the fact.

By that, I meant that the use of force, for whatever reason, IS BAD - even if it is done under the pretext of retaliation. It is not even in the best interest of America to do that - as it only creates more hatred in the minds of people being hit, which in turn creates more extremists.
