That’s the cliché de jour, but I think 9/11 changed our lives in ways we can’t yet see – or even imagine.

It’s not just leaving your shampoo and toothpaste out of the carry-on bag.

History is an unpredictable thing.

Think about Vietnam.  Thirty-five years ago, nobody could have imagined how deep and searing the wounds from that war would be in our society and our world view today.

So try to imagine:

  • What will be the historical impact of George Bush using 9/11 as a pretext to launching what threatens to become a war of Islam Vs. The West?
  •  If America is attacked again, who will we declare war on?
  • Will our government ever regain the public trust in the wake of the damage Bush has done?  And what will that mean for our future?

"What will be the historical impact of George Bush using 9/11 as a pretext to launching what threatens to become a war of Islam Vs. The West?"

Gee Gary, I don't know, what do you suppose the historical impact of President Roosevelt using Pearl Harbor as a pretext to launch a war against Japan was?

It still astonishes and saddens me to see that so many of my countrymen are so consumed with an irrational hatred for this president that they can't see the simplest of facts, even when the evidence is presented to them nearly 24/7 in living color. Let's get it straight, Gary. Islam attacked us, not the other way around. They did it repeatedly over at least a decade before they hit us hard enough to make us notice.

We tried not hitting back for far too long. Now we must pay the price by fighting a war much longer and harder than it would have otherwise been. We don't get to choose whether this becomes a war between "Islam" and the west--ultimately that is the enemy's decision to make. Our only choice is, do we defend ourselves, or not?
