A State of War

A State of War

Dear Editor:

Alluding to the horrific bombing of the World Trade Center on September 11th, this too like Pearl Harbor is a day that will live in infamy. It is ironic that throughout the entire years of World War II, the U.S. mainland was never touched.

Again, I believe a sleeping giant has been awakened. It is a shame that besides the thousands of people killed, hundreds of rescuers have also fallen victims to this disaster.

While Arafat expresses his regrets, the Palestinians, in a state of elation are dancing in the streets.

I only hope when the U.S. does eventually capture the perpetrators of fanaticism, it takes off its kid gloves and stops pulling its punches.

We should eschew the legalities of five-year trials and appeals. This is comparable to a state of war. Justice should be dispensed with the utmost expediency and alacrity.
