Taliban, al-Qaida leaders targeted

Again I am shocked but not surprised, but this time at the US. Are we ready for the consequences of War? I'm not sure I am. The effect on people's psyche is evident in the fact that work has slowed. People are still uncertain about the economy, although a war is bound to have a profound effect. This is exactly what the conservatives want, but is it really the best way to deal with terrorism?

War is a horrible thing. The images of Vietnam still haunt me from my childhood and the results of Gulf War syndrome anger me. Still, I cannot condone the lives lost at the World Trade Center. Where are the results of compassion in this world?
