    Say it like it is, some nations and groups and organization find that our rights, freedoms, and Independence as a threat to dictators and oppressive leaders in other countries as we try to share our beliefs and freedoms around the world. So they challenge Americas way of life by attacking us any way they can, even if it means self sacrifice of their own lives. Just as we would do if our country and citizens are in a war.

    War is no longer a defined by nations or a country or army, war has become the means to voice opposition to foreign ways of life who are threatened by US aggression.

    America is an aggressive nation that is trying to control the world and some people in small countries and villages don't like us telling them how to live. The date 9/11/01 was just a date that extremist retaliation with disregard for life declared war on the US.

    Whether you're talking about this or anything else, my thougts are...don't dumb it down. Way too many parents seem to oversimplify and underchallenge their kids. Inspire them to do some research on their own. And you were there. Share your experience.
