I want to briefly respond to your comments with two thoughts.

While my examples are extreme the main thought is this: I have not seen any example of force really solving a disagreement. It is more likely to just escalate it. WWII may have brought peace but it was with a horrible cost. I have great trouble supporting any violent action for most any cause and I pray that I never have to make an awful choice like the people in the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania.

Secondly these acts were done for some reason. We may not understand them, we may not ever know what they were but someone somewhere feels they have a valid complaint against the West. If we respond with more violence they or someone connected to them will feel they have another valid complaint and so the cycle will continue.

You probably won't agree with this but it is where I am coming from.
