I am not writing this post to anger anyone or to start a flame war, but I am simply stating my opinion. It is very tragic that all those people died, but thousands of people die everyday from many things including terrorism and nobody gives a shit!! Now that this kind of terrorism has struck in our own backyard people are scared that "OUR" way of life is in danger. To me things like thousands of babies starving everyday because they have no food, when we as Americans as consumers waste tons of food everyday is shocking. I am also surprised that other people are shocked that something like this happened. I knew that something like this would happen soon because of the US meddling in foreign affairs and creating many enemies all over the world. We have been threatened with these kind of acts for years now, and I guess that people just never thought it would happen, or they were just in denial. I also don't think that the government will do much about this matter. Bush stated that he would basically declare war on the terrorists and any country that is harbouring them. How would the US look like when they show thousands of innocent Arabs lying in the streets dead, so that the US could kill a group of terrorists. Mothers holding there dead babies, and other horrid images flashing accross the TVs of the world would make the US look just as bad as the terrorists. Terrorist groups are very mobile and can relocate in days, if not hours. I think it would be VERY hard for the US to locate and kill just the terrorists who are responsible. Of course I agree that the terrorists should all be eliminated, but the US has to make sure that no innocent people die, which I think would be virtually impossible. I also think that the US will be as vulnurable as ever to terrorist attacks. Hijacking a jumbo jet might be a little harder than before, but overall terrorism will continue. The US is the worlds largest "melting pot" for many races and religions. There are probobly alot more of Bin Ladens group currently living in the US at this time, and they are most likey ready to strike again. There are many more cells that are operating at this exact time and can strike right now if they were so inclined. An attack on Bin Laden would probobly just make Sept 11 look like a small prelude of whats to come. Terrorism is impossible to stop especially if people are willing to give there lives because they think they are helping a worthy cause. I myself am an unselfish person and I think of people who suffer all over the world everyday, not just when something happens in my backyard. I don't mean to sound rude or unconsiderate but I think that if people cared more about other suffering people all over the world as much as they do about themselves or even their country, then our world would be a much better place for everyone, including us. As a final note my thoughs are with the people who have been affected by this act, and also all the suffering people of the world.
These are just my opinions
