NPR had an interview this morning, with some sad person remembering children that were on the plane that hit the Pentagon. They talked about it like it was an asteroid or a tornado that killed these people. Just some terrible random event that no one could control.
It was not.
It was an act of war. An attack perpetrated by men who believe that we all deserve to die because we do not believe in their god. Men who are willing to use any means, willing to die in the process, driven by religious fervor, sure of ultimate victory.
