Intelligence first, Retribution next Clinical response the worlds text Which free country is next in line To be hit by this cowardly crime. New York Cities patriots, suffer further pain As Fire Officers and Police are slain They indeed are part of this attack So many of them never came back Honourable dads, cousins and wife's Mourn their lost ones, who lost their lives. The World will remember This September deathly sound When iconic giants crashed to the ground Hero's in the air, and on Manhattan Earth Proved to us all, whats humans are worth. In respect to the decent people who perished on that September day.

Under GW Bush, we waited and attacked Iraq, a country not involved in 9-11. 14 of 16 were from Saudi Arabia but we were getting oil at a decent price so Washington turned their heads and looked the other way. We did not respond properly. We still have not responded properly. This was an excellent write. No religion should ever condone terrorism let alone call massacres and beheadings part of a "HOLY" war. Holy war is an oxymoron. Keep writing. Vince
