Yes, A terrorist Attack
Most of them are just impoverished and uneducated peasants.Our enemies have adapted will stop at nothing to achieve their goals.
True, they're determined, but how hard can it be to kick their butts, really?
We're the most powerful and technologically advanced military force the world has ever known.
"Shock and Awe" was declared openly and delivered afterward with a clear understanding that we were at war with Hussein's regime - not the shopkeeper on the corner. Our enemy, on the other hand, sneaks up and slaughters without any obediance to rules and then delivers a message from behind masks of their "justifications" why civilians were targetted.
You would have been better off using Hiroshima and Nagasaki as a comparison. But in the end, this philosophical stand about how we are all the same is garbage. In the end there are winners and losers. And for the last few centuries, "God" has been pummeling "Allah" on every social and military level. Which civilization do you wish to be a part of today?

also, I'm sure the Soviet Union had the same sentiments about Afghanistan.
We go Democracy, all over their collective faces. We're all like "Do you wanna go that way? Do you really wanna go that way?" and they're all like "Yeah, we wanna go that way" so...we go that way. And so the way is gone...the way is gone hard you know? and then we're like "Do you still wanna go this way? Do you want to take it down that way, cause that's the way we're headed" and they're apparently like "That's the way we like it so let's take it that way" and so once more we take it that way and, wow, let me tell you. It most certainly is taken that way. That way...well, it's taken. hard.
Yeah, that's working out real well.We go Democracy, all over their collective faces.
I think we've pretty much abandoned the whole "exporting democracy" plan at this point.
This idea that the shooter was suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is as silly as...well...every other apocryphal liberal argument in defense of terrorists and violent felons.
Can liberals just go one day without coddling terrorists? I mean, seriously...
