in response to reader comment: When Will We Learn Not to Meddle

September 11, 2001 would still have happened because like it or not, it is not because of any meddling but because of who we are, Americans who value freedom. The jihadists not only want to destroy America and Israel, but the West and its values and impose its own form of rule. This is a war of survival, like WW II.
