I had a long conversation with my fiance last night about this tragedy. He thinks this is war. I think war is a waste of time. It's the power structure that has the problem, let the people in charge get in a ring and duke it out. Why should we send our troops to die? They follow their orders, the "enemy" follows their own set. But nothing really gets solved. Its like letting your big brother go kick the person thats picking on you. They're still mad, and when your big brother goes off to college, they'll have even more pent up aggression toward you. Then watch out.

I know that's not a popular view. The word "retaliate" was used in preference to "justice" many times yesterday. I just hope that the men flying the planes were of a faith where suicide is a mortal sin, and they are punished by their god.
