Or badly wrong with the people who did that act and those that supported and planned it. There have always been atrocious acts by man against man. That one seems so much more atrocious because it happened on American soil, which has not seen war (except a bit of unreported fighting or attacks by Germany, since it fought against itself in the 1860s, or at least not one that seemed as devastating. Also it got full worldwide tv coverage as it happened.When people hate a country so much that they would be willing to slam two hijacked jumbo jets into two 110 story buildings,buildings that were built to symbolize that greatness,at over 500 MPH,you know that something is bad wrong with this world.
How many people have died as a result of the response to that event for every innocent persons that died in that event? Would those who died after that event think any less of their lives than those who died in that event?
The dead are still dead, and each death, if man always acted rationally, was unnecessary. Even Hussein, Gaddafi, and Bin Laden could have been taken and kept alive to answer for their crimes rather than being killed as they were, though Hussein did have some sort of a trial, but his fate likely was already sealed.
I do not mean at all to diminish anything about 911, which was horrible, and I watched it after the first news of its beginning hit my computer screen until all of the deaths had occurred. At the time I actually had a fairly strong feeling that obvious structures not too far from me would likely be targeted too, if what the people were doing is hitting high buildings (as in NYC). Fortunately, at that time, doing that was not part of the plan.
Hating America though is a valid thought, because according to what is published the opinion of America by a large part of the world's population is not all that high, whether or not that feeling is justified. It may just be something that happens to the dominant country in the world, as was the case when England ruled the world.
In spite of my family having come from England from the early 1880s to the early 1890s, at least a big part of my family (though my dad's mother's branch had likely been in N. America for several hundred years), I am well aware of some of the horrible things that Britain did to the world, and also some perhaps good things, though I am not sure, other than perhaps helping some countries to move into the same age as was Europe, that the good outweighed all the bad.
