I don't doubt that over the years the US has done and continues to do some f****ed up s***. Look at Kosovo. Look at Iraq. Look at the ill-informed retaliation to Bin Laden's first big terrorist act. The US kills innocent people all the time, and no one bats an eyelid. Does the US deserve an ass kicking? The government and military probably do. But nothing justifies what happened to the World Trade Center. My feeling right now is that leaders and armies and nations are, by and large, stupid and evil. But looking at the reactions of most people to this (apart from the morons calling for the nuking of the Middle East), I think maybe people are ok. If we can just survive the politicians and soldiers and fanatics, maybe we'll be alright. Here's hoping.
Peace and love and empathy.
