104. This country spent years killing 3,000 Iraqis a day before lunch even rolled around.
And then we reloaded.

I'm not trying to be callous here, but this country has killed exponentially greater numbers of innocent people in its quest to avenge 9/11 than actually died on that horrible day. This isn't the only country on the planet that's suffered a tragedy of national proportions, and if every country abrogated for itself the "rights" we exercised last week, it wouldn't be long before it was our ox being gored again.

If appeals to ethics or morality don't appeal to you, how about plain old self-interest?
