What I'd Have Done After 9/11
I'm going to try not to comment on this subject other than in this post. Don't want to get involved in a days long back and forth over it. In fact, I told myself I wouldn't ever bring it up here. But, since I saw a commentary on lewrockwell.com the other day, I thought I'd throw the link out.
I've said before I'm not an "absolutist" pacifist. I'm not even sure I could even call myself a pacifist. I did and do strongly oppose the attack of Iraq, though. I've never took the time to give my feelings on what should or shouldn't have been done in response to 9/11 but, since this author largely reflects my views (oh, I could quibble over some details), I thought I'd let him speak for me.
A little lengthy- almost too much for my attention span- but I think he's pretty much in there with my feelings. Suffice it to say, we could have handled dealing with 9/11 and the terrorist threat with little disruption of the U.S. military and nowhere near the financial costs.
