Well, Canada did face it's own attack in Halifax, but that's getting into history again, which you don't like unless it justifies your blood lust. Any information captured from bin Laden will be irrelevant in a short period of time as the radical terrorist cells scramble to reorganize. You are the one who so adamantly points out their dedication to their cause so often. Do you think taking down their e-mail server and messaging center is going to fill their hearts with peace?
And as far as experiencing a real attack - what were you, 15 when 9/11 happened. You seem to have gotten stuck in an adolescent view of the events. For those in New York the horror was particularly unique, but don't delude yourself into thinking the experience in Ohio was any different than that in Quebec.
I have no blood lust. I just don't want to see more innocents to die. I don't enjoy death; I want to prevent mass casualties of civilians. Something you fail to comprehend. And I will never forget what happened or where I was on 9/11; and I admire President Bush for putting the policies into place that has kept us safe from another terrorist attack since. In addition, I have been to Iran and spent considerable time there to understand what it means to live in tyranny and oppression and to appreciate the freedoms we take for advantage living in western nations.
You don't want civilians to die here but in Iraq or Afghanistan?
We don't appreciate the freedoms we take for advantage living in western nations, not sure what you said, assume you mean "for granted". Here is the deal most of us do more than you can understand apparently. We want freedom enough that were are not willing to give it up to our government. When they make something like the Patriot Act law, free people realize they have lost more than a terrorist can take away. Governments take freedom from the citizens to govern, the question becomes how much are you willing give up to feel safe. Many of us just aren't as fearful as you.
You can't convince current or ex military to go against their against their programming. Far too much time and money has been used to implant it.
The Ends.. Always justify the means.
Just smile and nod.
