You were offended by a womans call to a higher sense of humanity and 
her horror at the cycle or revenge and retaliation we are in?  You 
were offended that she deplored the death of innocents regardless of 
their nationality or who caused it, even us?  You were offended that 
she suggested that perhaps our nations past actions could have been 
the catalyst for the hatred directed against us?  What is so 
offensive here?

I thought her opinion was quite thought provoking and a wake up call 
to our goverment to be more responsible in its actions and relations 
to the rest of the world.  According to many reports I have read on 
the web Osama Bin Laden was trained in terroist and counter-
insurgency tactics right here in the US at the CIA's School of the 
Americas in Georgia.  America trained and unleashed this monster (as 
well as many others) upon the world, is it a suprise the snake turned 
and bit us?

I would ask everyone to stand up for the cause of justice and to 
forsake the dead-end path of revenge.  The guilty must be brought to 
civilized justice under the rule of law.  We must not let our pain 
and anger cause us to allow more innocents to be harmed in a mad dash 
for vengence, nor should we allow our differing viewpoints on the 
whole affair to fracture our unity as people of conscience and 

Patricia, I understood what you were saying and I concur.  I too hope 
this event will restore our national soul and bring us to a higher 
compassion for all human life.
