I think we all agree that 9/11 was an atrocity. I'm
curious, Erika, what you think a proper response to
the events of that day would be. From the tone of what
you've said since military action began, it seems to 
me that you want to avert your eyes from "Ground Zero"
and the Pentagon and that piece of farmland in 

There are children in about 60 countries right now who
won't see Mommy or Daddy again because Mohammed Atta
et al decided it was a good day to die and that they
were going to take a few thousand people with them.
There are more Mohammed Attas out there who are
to harm you and your daughter and me and my wife and
kids and grandchild. 

So, what is a fitting response for the US and the
60 or so countries who suffered, not collateral damage
(inadvertant, unintended, undesired) but the
murder of civilians?

Not trolling, discussing.
