You are far too rational for your own good. Well said. It is encouraging that not all Americans are willing to throw the Constitution into the rubble in New York...it's time the American people took a good long look at what they've been doing in the Mideast...NO Arab wants anything different in life than an American wants or a Jew or an Eskimo.
Either way the terrorists made their point in about the only way left open to them...either recognize their legitimate claims...including their right to desire as much "revenge" as Americans now want...or else give them the satisfaction of making America look and act at home towards its own citizens as the policeman and bully of choice others see and know.
Either way...they set the rules, they chose the moment, they paid the ultimate price, but America will pay the larger price, ultimately. This was a new tactic...everything we know says they will select another and a better one next time...there is no way out of this through violence,,,as Powell and Bush and so many others sagely warned the Palestinians and Israelis BEFORE...though they were backing only one of them.
