Eeek! You're stepping on toes there!
Leader of the free world? I find this offensive, and it's also why there is so much anti-US attitudes on the net.
Also, it is not fact that it's wrong and sick - this is opinion. OK OK OK, I'm NOT saying I think it's OK, and I do NOT find this anything other than sick and very, very wrong. But it is a matter of opinion - that's a fact. This doesn't really have any relevancy, and is no doubt going to be misunderstood and flamed, but anyway.
I also dispute the word coward - I wouldn't be brave enough to poke a sleeping lion! Of course the main reasons I haven't done this is moral grounds and lack of reason, any, it takes guts to try this - guts and fanatical stupidity. Hiding? Come on, they're not that stupid - no country could do this and openly admit it as the US (plus the UN) could crush any other 1 country (not that a country was directly responible for this).
I certainly do agree with your "The US deserved it" discussion. The people who died - people who left their homes in the morning to do an honest day's work did nothing to deserve it - they didn't even have anything to do with Middle Eastern conflicts (assuming that's who did this) apart from pay taxes that funded the US's involvement (which I pretty much agree with, BTW), and you can bet they all complained about paying it (of course) and many strongly felt that they don't want it going into foreign trouble zones.
I large agree with what you say, but I just wanted to mention a few things I object too. I also want to make absolutely clear, as what I said is probably a tinderbox waiting for flames, that I do not in any way think these attacks were morally right.
War doesn't decide who's right - just who's left.
