Remembering 911

Monday, September 11, 2006

Today on the way to work I pulled over to the side of the highway and listened to the NYC Fire Department bagpipe band playing before the moment of silence. A lot of cars whizzed by - I was the only one stopped.

Perhaps that is a good thing.

I keep remembering that five years after the last time we were attacked the US military had killed over 4M enemy combatants, 5M+ civilians, and dropped two atomic bombs. That, of course, does not include the several dozen million more killed by our allies using US munitions.

All I can say is that the Muslim world is damn lucky that this wartime president (Bush) is more patient than the last (Roosevelt).

Yes, I am still very very mad.

Michelle Malkin has a lot of good posts up today if you need some visual reminders.

And let's remember all our travelling co-workers, fellow citizens, and visitors who perished today in an act of war.
