As a citizen of the United States, I stand behind, and fully support our
leaders in this time of crisis. No matter how hard you try to spin
this, this sensless act of destruction was *wrong*. There is no way you
can justify this act - no matter who we may have "pissed off".

You piss me off. But you may forget what makes this country great - and
It's your right to voice your opinion. And I will gladly give my life
to defend your right to say it.
