Don't be so down

Reader comment on item: My Gloom: Back to September 10

Submitted by Benjamin Shniper (United States), Dec 20, 2005 at 14:39

Well, the terrorists have made a continuing mockery of the justice system. About half the time they go free, even with overwhelming evidence.

And sure, America gets tired of war quickly and has a short attention span.

But some things are getting better. America has Iran surrounded, in fact, with troops on all sides.

Simple unpopularity hasn't stopped a war before.

The truth is: terrorists are not supermen or invincible. Al Queda is no longer as effective as it was, and free people given a free chance to choose will choose choice. We will see the end of this, and 122 Free countries, up from 119, exist now. Lebanon, especially, has become more free and is starting to question Hezbollah and Syrian control. And we haven't had an attack on America because we've been fighting them in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Keep up the work you are doing - noone talks about what you discuss unless you do. And look at the changes we've been a part of already.
