Post:

varies from person to person, culture to culture....we, of course, feel those
killed we innocent since they had no involvement in whatever the terrorists
saw/felt was going on...the terrorists however, may feel that their "apathy"
to their cause made them as guilty as being actively against them....if you
are not with me, you are against me.
