Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Terrorists are cowards. When I started to write this, we did not know who had actually planted the bombs in Boston. By the sounds of things, it was more than one person. My fear is that it was misguided Americans. The last time a bomb actually went off in a major American city, it was an American that did it. To this point, none of the major terrorist factions have claimed credit for the blast. It looks like we did this to ourselves.
Some people are speculating that this was done as part of the anniversary of Waco. Haven’t enough innocent people died because of that fiasco? What kind of sick mind commemorates a tragedy by creating another tragedy? If this was an American, I say that we should send whoever it is to a third world country. If American freedom makes you so angry that you want to blow up innocent people, then see how the conditions of an oppressive and poverty-stricken nation suit you. And no, you can’t come back when you’ve learned your lesson.
I don’t get terrified when I see and hear about these things, I get angry. I want to find the person that did it and smack them silly. I want to see the guilty parties dangling from the Brooklyn Bridge for all to see. I would imagine that most Americans feel the same way. When we are attacked, we get angry. The terrorists just do not seem to understand that.
The United States is not perfect. We give too much money to countries that hate us and we spend too much time minding other people’s business. Our internal conflicts get so heated that many people are concerned that civil war could break out. Truth be told, the only things that really scare Americans are other Americans.
