(Who the hell voted for that Clinton idiot?)
Sorry, my statement about Clinton was a joke. I should have proof read my post and realized it was out of place. I do realize that most of the voters did indeed vote for him, twice. Forgive me. I was trying for a bit of humor in these times of extreme sorrow.
Clinton was no better or worse than the nation you describe: a well-intentioned visionary who did a lot of things none of us are proud of.
But that was also part of my intentions by mentioning Clinton (and your opinion on his two terms is your opinion). A lot of people that voted for Bill Clinton did so on the best of intentions. The dishonest things he did betrayed the trust of those people and us the American people. But the majority voted him into office and we as a nation stood behind or beside him throughout. We must again stand united throughout the dark days ahead.
I want to point out that we as a nation and a world community must act in unison. We must do a terrible thing. We must administer justice and punishment to those responsible. It will not be pretty. People will die. But it must be done and we must unite in doing this.
Some people will be shocked and horrified by the acts of war that will be our (the worlds) retaliation for the attacks on America. But we must act. The stability of the world is at risk.
Show your support. Voice your opinions. Take a stand. Everyone I know, everyone I have spoken with over the past few days agrees. The world must attack terrorism for the good of all. This was a crime against humanity. And humanity can not... must not be a pacifist.
And to those who feel diplomacy will work and that we should try that long and drawn out process. I say this... you can not reason with insanity. These individuals want us dead for no other reasons than our way of life, our beliefs, and our acts of compasion and aid in assisting several nations in the middle east region.
They see us as a devil, a desease. And we must look at them in the same manor. We must seek them out and destroy them. We must imprison the individuals willing to surrender.
Also we must educate and break the cycle. I am willing to bet most if not all of the suspected terrorists were raised with hate, racism, and lack of compasion. And if not raised that way then they were taught it by peers and mentors, trained (brain washed) to be part of this insane cause.
A child raised with hate, racism, and bigotry becomes the racist bigot that his/her parent/gaurdian was. But not all fall into this trap.. this never ending cycle. Some break the chain. So if you harbor any of these negative emotions for people of other races and religions... think. Think about the children and how you taint their views of the world. Think about the people around you and how you infect them with your negative acts and comments. We have seen proof of this in this very thread.
We can change ourselves and change the world and the time is now. God Bless...
