"My source for this was a report from the World News International Channel where they interviewed a man who was very close to a former Arabian terrorist (I forget who) who was put on trial and supposedly brought to justice."
Your source was correct, but I gather you did not know this earlier and needed to hear it from a news report after a catastrophe such as this?
So now we have someone ignorant who up until now lived in a cave who wants to have a say in how we go about dealing with this very critical situation?
"Finally, I am going to say something that will probably infuriate a lot of people, but I firmly believe this:
If you are an American citizen, and do not support going to war, you are not a patriot of this nation."
Beware of too much patriotism. It'll simply close your mind for no other reason than "I was born in this country."
I'd rather think of myself as a citizen of the world. I like to enjoy everything the world has to offer, and not limit my pride to America's accomplishments. I don't value people of any nationality over any other. And neither should anyone else.
