Justice is revenge. Revenge is justice. I am very much against the death penalty in most cases, but this would be an exception.
Whether you want justice, revenge, or both, don't you think it would be a good idea to direct that at the people actually responsible? It seems most

"War on Terror" and goes after the people responsible; Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden.
