i agree w/ ree. dan and i were talking yesterday, and we both think we need to re build those tires and fast. make them even better. kind of like two huge middle fingers saying "fuck you" to those terrorists.
and we do need to have a response, but we have to make it a long-term one. i think fighting an international war on terrorism would be the best thing. there are terrorist groups all over the world that have been tolerated for far too long.
but if we just do that eye-for-an-eye bullshit, then we have to expect that there will be more terrorist attacks in retaliation. and that story will go on and on and on and on. and in the process, we will make ourselves into a bunker nation like israel. i don't think any of us want that.
i like living in a free, open, democratic society. if i wanted to live in a fortified castle afraid of the barbarians at the gates, i'd move to some totalitarian state out there. or build a time machine and go back to the dark ages ...
