To The Daily Sun,
After reading through Mr. Albushies' rant on how the terrorists are "only" foot soldiers with no means to harm us and we should move on from the 9/11 experience, one is left wondering if he might not have had the same thoughts about Pearl Harbor.
Mr. A. seems to forget that these "foot" soldiers did on 9/11 have a very efficient air force of four large planes. They have used a small navy to badly damage several of our navy ships and kill or troops. They have managed to blow up a Russian plane with a smallish bomb. They have killed a sizable number of people in Paris and are known to have 30,000 well armed (read tanks, artillery and missiles) available to move about the entire Middle East. And hopefully, even the pacifist Mr. A. will admit that there is every reason to suspect they have and will use a suitcase nuke should the proper occasion arise.
Criticizing our and other nation's reaction to terror attacks from the comfort of rural Gilford may make him "feel" good about himself. However, we suspect many that went through 9/11 or lost loved ones in the hundreds of other terror attacks around the world including the very recent Paris killings may have a different take on the subject.
