    too bad this post has deteriorated into this retoric.. I think it was started to honor,remember,and pay respect to those who died or helped or were effected by this day. And on this one day let's all be proud to be Americans

    Yes very sad...God Bless all of those who died that day...and all of those who lost someone...

    It is very sad and disturbing that some people think America should have rolled over on it's belly and done nothing in response to an attack on our soil that killed thousands of innocent people.

    What was Pearl Harbor? How was it any different than 9/11? Did we screw up that response also?

    Good grief man! Wipe the BS off your bifocals and read what I said before you go making unfounded statements.

    Here, in case your bifocals are at the same slow repair shop as Obama's wedding ring, I'll post in geriatric print for you to see:


    Personally, I think we should have initially thumped the al queda network as best we could, (which we did, thank you, Mr. Bush)

    Sorry, I thought you posted this, didn't enlarge the print for you.
    I guess even you don't read your posts.

    "In some ways, we did do "absolutely nothing", that is, after we let Bin Laden escape, divert attention to Iraq, and not refocus on Afghanistan until Obama took over the helm."

    Wait, I checked, that was you that posted that.

    Sorry RK, that's as large as I can make it. If you still can't (or won't) see, it's time to drop it.

    Like we did after the Cole Attack, or how about the first World Trade Center attack, or the Kenyan attack. Maybe we could have sat down and sang Kumbaya with the terrorists and everything would have been forgiven.

    Do you even live in the real world or is your life just one big utopian journey? So sad that you are willing to be kicked in the face and are willing to do nothing about it.

    What would YOU have done? Invade a country that had nothing to do with the attacks? Oh, wait....don't answer that.

    Oh, no worries, I can see it.
    No matter how big you make the letters and how hard you try to insult me you said:

    "In some ways, we did do "absolutely nothing", that is, after we let Bin Laden escape, divert attention to Iraq, and not refocus on Afghanistan until Obama took over the helm."

    It's OK, I'd be ashamed of that post as well.

I simply stated the US reaction to 9-11 was all wrong. Most people on the planet, agree with that statement.
    We tried to treat an international criminal act as an act of war perpetrated by a foreign government. Ended up attacking the wrong country and killing more innocent people than have EVER died for any reason in the US at the hands of an enemy (civil war excluded).
    It was a mistake. There is nothing disgraceful in admitting we made a mistake. It is the first step in trying to avoid one in the future.


    Guy, my mind is wide open. The only mistake we made after 9/11 was stopping where we did. Most people huh? Where did you get that stat from? Oh let me guess, 8 years after the fact, right? Some people have no intestinal fortitude to finish a job once it gets started. President Bush said it wouldn't be easy, said it wouldn't happen over night. I will not argue about Iraq, if we should have went or not, because we should have, we did, and it's done.

    And if you don't think 9/11 was an act of war, your dumber than I think you are. Oh wait, you can't be. Remember December 7, 1941? Don't think a prerequiste for whooping a$$ is if your a country or a bunch or muslims looking to make a name for yourself. Bottom line, mess with US, get a boot to the groin, plain and simple.

    You see, as far as I am concerned, we should have tracked down the family members of the 9/11 bombers, all of them, young and old, put them on a ship, let them set sail, and sank the dang thing. That would have been some justice. And I know, I know, 2 wrongs don't make a right, or a left for that matter, but I would have gotten a tingling feeling all over.

    I hope this post is open minded enough for ya, there depittydawg. And if you think that was me being mean to you, you should probably think again.

    I don't need a day to remember the service men and women that have fallen, or the innocent AMERICAN civilians that died on 9/11, because you see, I think about them everyday. As far as the innocent civilians over there, there probably aren't any.
