Dr. Mosqueda's article

It's difficult for me to describe my gut reaction to what happened on September 11th, and to what's happened since. In his October 8th post, Richard made a very good point about the declaration of what is practically martial law--It's dead wrong regardless of the circumstances, and I don't think any of us like the idea of John Ashcroft's goons tapping our phones or reading our e-mails.
But was it necessary for the U.S. to take military action? In this case, I believe it was. I've heard a few comparisons to the Gulf War, but I think that's absurd--The fact is, thousands of innocent people were killed. No list of grievances against our government and military can justify that, and quite frankly I do take offense to Dr. Mosqueda's scorecard mentality. No, none of the atrocities he mentioned can be justified either, but the people who were killed on September 11th did not commit them.
In the Koran, Mohammed said, "I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers...(S)lay them wherever ye catch them..." These terrorists didn't crash two planes into the World Trade Center because America stuck its nose where it didn't belong in Vietnam or El Salvador. They did it because they took their religion WAY too literally. It's grim as all hell, and I sincerely hope no one is enjoying it, but a show of force seems to be the only way to fight this kind of insanity.
