So what are they trying to say with these numbers? If we had let them get away with the bombing then perhaps they would do it again? Perhaps try a different variation? How many more would have died due to our inaction?
Sure there are as many people gone. Without a doubt more will die or be injured as time progresses. The point is those people died or got injured knowing they had that chance and were willing to make that sacrifice.
Not only men but also women and children died on 9/11 . . .civilians. Most, if not all of which harbored the muslem nation and religion no ill will at all. It is unlikely that more than 10% had ever heard of Osama Bin Laden even. Yet people say we need to stop this war on terrorism. They say it is over or that we scared the big bad guy away. Scaring him away is not enough.
Read Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. You can not just scare the bully away. You must destroy him utterly to prevent any possible reoccurence. (I am not talking about the main antagonist- the buggers, I am speaking of the bully at school)
I apologize if I am way off base. I just scanned through the article fast. But everytime I hear about the number of men and women that have died or been hurt, "for no good reason" - not stated in this article but has been stated in so many words in many other articles - it just about makes me want to go insane with anger.
I am like Radio Shack. You have questions? I have answers!
