RE: Why do the minorty thinks the majority is wrong
Terrorists are criminals. They have nothing in common with those who are engaging in free speech. They are practictioners of extortion, pure and simple. And they don't have to be part of the minority or the majority, either. For example, if you are some Iraqi kid who just had his family killed by a US bomb, Bush is a terrorist. I'd agree with the kid, too.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
