I think that this dialogue about war is missing a major point... what George Bush is suggesting is simply impossible to do. Terrorists can be anywhere and they can be of any nationality. I am not saying that no military action is justified if there is indeed a specific government behind this, but until we determine whether that's the case I don't think we should be salivating for war. Killng innocent people is just as much of a tragedy overseas as it is in New York City. And I'm sorry, but you CANNOT compare these acts to WWII , pearl harbor, etc. We have not been attacked by a government, therefore we cannot wage war. What if these people had been white Americans, as they well could have? A bunch of Timothy McVeighs? then who do you wage war against?
