    DN Sub,

    Gosh, thanks for your uplifting thoughts this AM
    I'm sure it brought positive thoughts of their future, when thousands of school children were looking through the news for their current events assignment this morning.
    You know, how would you have felt at their age, having to read the predictions of doom and the end of the world each morning when you had this assignment years ago?
    Go for the positive once in a while, even if it seems difficult.

    The terrorists won. Their threats prevent civilized people from going about their normal activities, and disrupt the economies of people companies and countries.

    This sort of strife will not end until the threat of radical Islam is destroyed. That will require the force of arms, not negotiations and the threat of lawsuits or sanctions.

    One side uses their fighters to protect innocent civilians, and the other uses innocent civilians to protect their fighters. We must stand with those who protect civilians, our long time friends the people of Israel.

    If we think things are bad now, wait until Iran has nuclear weapons and threatens many places, and undoubtedly those who would not hesitate to shoot down civilian airliners would not hesitate to use a nuke to destroy a city and its inhabitants.
