Your criticism of capitalism in general for the choices of individuals is misplaced. Every critic of capitalism now has to answer the question, "As opposed to what?" Capitalism is not only the only system that works, it is the system that provides the freedom that we are fighting to preserve against an enemy that despises it.

The World Trade Center was chosen in large part because it was a 'temple' of capitalism. Be aware...as our enemies criticize what is best about us.
