America has done good things... but I think you would benefit from some study of history

I beg your pardon, but please don't tell me what I would benefit from. You will note that I refrained from telling you what I think you would benefit from.

My concern is that more innocent lives aren't taken in anger

And suggesting that US foreign policy is partially to blame for the terorist attacks somehow helps to alleviate that concern? I would think that the fact that we haven't done anything rash yet would indicate that "appropriate" methods which are more likely to be successful are being sought and considered. Certainly Colin Powell as well as many others in the current administration have the experience and intelligence to act without revenge as a motive. The reason that any action is necessary is to prevent this type of attack from happening again - either here in the US or in Australia or anywhere else.

I apologise for any insensitivity on my part.

An apology for being insensitive contained within the same post where you yet again post remarks that are insensitive cannot be sincere, IMHO.

Christina, proud to be an American
