Can anyone tell me how they feel about this?
These terrorists are getting away with murder. Bush made war for a reason that had to be searched for. Iraq wasn't responsible yet we fought them
and overtook them. But the reason for a new war, in my opinion, is right in front of our faces.
These terrorists are chopping the heads off of innocents. I'm not saying I disagree with Operation Enduring Freedom or last years war with Iraq
in particular but I am saying that the reasons we fought had nothing to do with 9/11 except in that we were finally for freedom. Bush said, "Ok, we
can't bring in or bring down Bin Laden, so lets go for the guy my dad didn't follow through on taking down...Hussein." Well, not entirely but in
essence there is truth to that.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm glad we fought but now...NOW WE HAVE THE SAME SITUATION AGAIN...TERRORISTS ARE KILLING INNOCENTS.
Only this time, we watched Nick Berg get beheaded. Only this time we saw the head of Paul Johson laying on his body with a knife in his eye. Only
today did CNN News report the discovered and decapitated body of the Korrean hostage the officials say was found to be boobytrapped with plastique.
We didn't see the gore from 9/11. the vast majority of the world was spared from seeing the gore and ugliness from the two planes slamming intot
he towers and their subsequent toppling.
We now know that he have to hunt this terrorist faction down. I just hope that Bush aim for the wrong bad guys because I am not ready to trade one
evildoer for another and I hope the United States feel the same.
We should all want the people who are DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS. We shouldn't have to settle for those who sympathize with the terrorists. We
should aim for them directly. I'm not terribly sure we are doing everything possible to bring justice to the victims and their families.
We should be acting as aggresively as they are. We should be going on the offensive and hunting down these terrorists post haste.
We should extract ALL OF THE UNITED STATES CITIZENS THAT ARE OVER THERE WHETHER OR NOT THEY WANT TO AND ADVISE OTHER COUNTRIES TO DO THE SAME.
Sure this sounds like martial law in a sense but so what?! The United States has a responsibility to her citizens to keep them safe at all costs!
After we do this we should then start the hunt for terrorists in much the same way the police in the U.S. set up sting operations. This is my
opinion. Instead of just simply saying I feel bad, I feel hurt, I feel sad and heart broken, this is me putting my two cents in as an American and
offering what I believe would be just one broad stroke in a multi-colored collage of viable solutions.
I would appreciate anyone talking about how they feel. I would appreciate anyone just venting and letting loose because we all need to let loose
after all these events that have befallen us and especially the victims and their families. Thank you for taking the time to read my post or rant if
youw ill...if you agree with me, I'll respect that, if you disagree with me, I'll respect that too...I just ask that everyone who reads this takes
the time out to post how they feel about the subject. I don't care if i see a paragraph, a stanza, a thesis or a single sentence...I just think it
would be nice if we all put our two cents into this topic
Thank You All Very Much,
