I was just thinking about the reaction of the world toward the attacks on September 11th, 2001 and the response the world had to the attack on Russian
school children in a school recently.
In my mind, the attack on the children was at least as deplorable as the 9/11 attacks, since it was on children, yet there wasn't nearly the outcry
from the world as was for America.
Why wasn't there a similar reaction to the Russian school attack from the rest of the world? Did Russia not want the world's sympathy or support, or
did the world just love America that much more at the time?
This kind of makes me wonder what would be the reaction if America were to be hit hard again. I'm afraid that now, if it were to happen, the world
would turn a cold shoulder to the U.S. remembering how we (Bush) acted so arrogantly shortly after.
