America is not the ‘bad guy

I’m tired of hearing about how American is the “bad guy.” It’s sad to see how easily some people have forgotten the unprovoked attack on our country. How can you sit at home on your sofa and say Saddam is not a threat to us? Bin Laden was not the only one behind the slaughter of innocent civilians on 9/11. He has numerous financial backers all over the globe (and financial support in the U.S., as well as emotional support right here in this country).

We should show the world that we are not so caught up in carrying the blame on our shoulders, and that we are not afraid to retaliate in a manner that scares these people so much that they think twice about trying another 9/11 type sucker punch.
