11 Sep 2001 - Ficlet Style

Six years ago today, a bunch of mean people flew airplanes into buildings. They were terrorists. They successfully terrified the American people. The U.S. was so terrified, in fact, that it flattened Iraq. I suspect this wasn't the result they were hoping for. To date, it's unclear who's winning and what they're winning.

So very true, MWT. At this point, I don't even know what "win" looks like, for anybody.

They also flattened Afghanistan.

At some point after 9/11, I remember that I didn't know what to be afraid of the most, the United State's wrath and revenge or the actual terrorists...

I didn't mention Afghanistan because a lot of people in the U.S. consider that one a "success." I don't really know what to think on it either way, so to not muddle the point of the post, I omitted.
