You obviously have had your rationality comprimised by your political views. Your dislike for Bush should be irrelevant at a time like this yet it seems to be a central theme in your post. You insenuate that Americans are cowards for attacking Iraq (a country that invaded a basically defenseless kuwait and is guilty of genocide against Kurds among other crimes) and suspected terrorist camps which are responsible for the butchering of innocent people. You state that the terrorists that committed this attack are not cowards, which they are because they have deliberately attacked a civilian population. You state that "The United States has killed more people than any other nation" which is wrong in any interpetation. That title would almost certainly fall to Stalinist Soviet Union, or Nazi Germany. You obviously are ignorant of history. You state that the US should be nice to everyone. Are you completely naive or just stupid? You speak as if the Palestinians are not guilty of any crime because of the creation of israel. Although I personally think the creation of Israel was a mistake, it is far too late to turn back now, and violence against civilians is NEVER acceptable especially in peacetime. You say that the US could have avoided this attack by getting more invovled in the middle east. That is completely false, the terrorists who committed this (we know they are arabic now) oppose any invovlement by the US in the region. The extreme muslim fanatics who comitted this attack will not accept any peace agreement short of the dissolution of Israel which will never happen.
I think you are correct in condemning the hate mongers and irrational people on this board who are advocating nukes and carpet bombing. Their rage is understandable, and they are not able to rationally think through the event yet. If you actually think any president would carry through with such a plan (Even bush which you so clearly hate) then you are an ignorant person.
Even though I dislike Bush as well, his statement was fairly well reasoned and I think was appropriate.
