Retribution for the incredible loss of life at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon has begun. President Bush is leading the worldwide coalition against terrorism. The United States and its allies have the moral right to ferret out Osama bin Laden, his cohorts in the al-Qaida network and any others involved. Possible collusion with U.S. terrorist groups should not be discounted.
I look forward to the day when bin Laden is confronted by the U.S. military for these dastardly deeds. While the collapse of the World Trade Center towers looked like a horrific scene from the film "Independence Day," it was reality TV. The culprits in this case were not aliens in spaceships, but aliens in commandeered American jetliners, who turned them into machines of mass destruction.
May the supreme creator bless America in its hour of need. If so, victory will be ours.
