"Us" could mean in the US, the citizens of another country, or the global community. Anyone who has been around here for a time knows my feeling about this. I believe that the attack changed the US in ways that are fundamental - that for now, the terrorists have won. This is why we we have seen the use of and/or public debates about torture, tactical nukes, preemptive war, spying on US citizens, secret prisons, illegal incarceration, and generally a betrayal of the deepest and most significant, core American values. In the past, the US has certainly engaged in unacceptable activities, but in the past we have always appealed to the better angels in our nature. Since 911, we have sold out to fear. The irony is that by winning, the terrorists lose as well. If you want a far more dangerous world for everyone, then change the US. The terrorists attacked a few buidlings, and we countered by attacking two countries - one that had nothing to do with the attack. So hopefully the world will take note: Change the US and you have a very dangerous mad dog to deal with rather than a nation fundamentally dedicated to peace, and freedom for everyone. Help to find our way back to sanity. Don't let fear control your life. Vote Obama.
