And is it a bad thing to remember the heroic efforts of so many people that day? is it a bad thing to stop a moment and reflect on what is important in our lives? Is it a bad thing to remember those who gave their lives to try to save countless others? Is it a bad thing to remember those who did escape with their lives? Where is the bad?

I agree with DawnP. Iraq was an easy target. Jr. wanted to avenge the attempt made on daddy's life. America wanted to retaliate against someone and Iraq was as good as anyone else. Forgive but don't forget least it happen again. What is a 'troll'? I served in both VietNam and Desert Storm. I won't forget either. Nor will I forget those that hid in Canada and then came back after a Presidential Pardon as if nothing was wrong. My dead friends will never come back. Thank you Canada.

It will be generations before the returning vets can put any of this to rest. This is the price we pay for being police to the world. It is a high price but a necessary one and we should never forget. There is nothing peaceful about it. Take care Rober and god bless.

I am glad that this site, and all sites, are monitored by U.S. Government agencies. Maybe time for a background check. Take care and god bless.

Iraq supported Al Queda and their activities. They also helped to hide the terrorists from US Forces. Saddam Hussein was a madman that needed to be stopped. No different then the tyrant Gaddaffi in Libya! They wreaked havoc on the world and thousands upon thousands of innocent people. They got theirs in the end. At least that region has had most of the "infection" removed to try and bring some sense of stability back. Do I feel bad about what happens to innocents over there? NO Why? Because most of them over there care not about what some of theior beloved terrorist friends did here in 2001! The only remorse I have is for the thousands of troopsa that have paid the price in removing that infectious scum from the face of this earth!
