    I'd say the terrorists are bleeding America WHITE!

    What do you say?

    Is this cost of revenge worth it?

    We have a worse enemy using immigration to invade the US. That will permanently destroy the American way of life and everything it took 500 years to build.

    Washington: Pick your battles more carefully.

    It wasn't "revenge" asshole. It's a war. In war you kill people. You go to war to win and remove the threat from your country. We seem to be doing just that.
    sheesh, some people.

    to a minority, yes>

    Empire and Inequality shows how the jetliner attacks provided a windfall opportunity to accelerate pre-existing trends towards greater global and domestic hierarchy, inequality, and repression. Street shows how the elites of American government and business used classic propaganda mechanisms in pursuit of this regressive and authoritarian agenda in the 'post-9/11 era'. Street offers a cogent critique of the myth of the powerless state, showing that the U.S. government's cup runs over when it comes to serving the wealthy and privileged few and is empty only when it comes to meeting the needs of the non-affluent majority. Empire and Inequality is a powerful reflection on the inseparable, deepening, and mutually reinforcing relationships that exist between empire abroad and inequality and repression at home in the 'post 9/11 era'.

    I guess sending in a few hundred guys to knock off the real threat would be revenge, but because it took tens of thousands of troops and trillions to find and kill those same guys, you can sanctify your actions by calling it war on an enemy.

    Somebody's making big $$$ on the difference.

    IMO the cost in human life to kill one man was not worth it.

    The financial cost while secondary to the human cost was not worth it either.

    Exactly. We have greater threats to the country that use the war against terror to screen their attacks on the American people.

    What was the Alternative? I strongly doubt everyone holding hands singing kumbaya would have resulted in stopping future attacks
