My first thought was to blame bin Lauden, or even Palestinians. I do NOT agree with Israel's treatment of the Palestinians, but my initial reaction was:
Team up with Israel and kill everyone in the freaking region.
Coming to my senses...I want retribution, yes, against the correct people involved. If it is a gov't backed scheme, to hell with them and we need to return what they gave us.
I am just frustrated, cause if this was as "easy" as a real act of war, we'd have someone to blame. As it is, if it is bin Lauden, we have one man to lay the blame on. If the gov't hiding him gives him up, we will have him and some of his supporters...but even that will not give me satisfaction. I like everyone else am pissed and confused at what we should do. But we can;t pretend it is as straightforward as attacking Japan after Pearl. There is no enemy...yet.
What is the freakin solution. An attack is unavoidable if you're a Ghandi idealist and think that we will talk our way out of this you are freakin crazy. We will find out who did this and when it is pieced together....I pity the person who is responsible.
When did ever I ever say it will be as straight foward as attacking Japan like Pearl Harbor???????????????????????
Not I sir and I wish you would be specific with your arguments before go out assuming what I said or meant to say.
I simply said aggressive action will be taken. You also agreed with this. So get off your high horse and stop trying to make an issue out of nothing.
