But please be cool in whatever you do next. If Bush busies giddy minds
with foreign quarrels too precipitately, then the consequences for all,
US included, could be unimaginable. Something targeted, researched,
small scale but instantly assertive, without fuss, or spin, something
that says very quietly, very unequivocally NO will do. Please don't go
for another horror movie somewhere else, no matter how strong and deep
the poison of revenge runs, please.

What would happen if we go to 'World Trade 2' somewhere in the Middle
East, or Kabul? He (who?) will not be there anyway by now. Would any
nation of whatever creed willingly wish to identify itself as a
supporter of such a spectacular atrocity. Would even the most militant
Palestinian or Jew or Sikh or IRA member or Etta REALLY wish this on
each their enemies? Or innocent us? Or anyone? What is 'innocent' in
this context?

There are people all over the world angry with USA at many times of the
year, but anger surely has a language and reason. It is not pure
psychosis? Or have we just seen a new definition of it in Manhattan?

In  after years, will students think we meant 11th September 2001 when
we refer to 'The Manhattan Project'?
