The 9/11 attacks: another excuse for religious intolerance and racism among Americans. Although tragic, the very reaction and long-time war makes terrorism work. The United States have gotten even greater losses in the Middle East than on that day, and have killed or crippled and equal amount civilians. Have they not gotten their revenge? @Essence of Randomness: Actually, the Ground Zero mosque building was cancelled due to the massive pressure from people, not because of a racist priest.
