...we say that anti-imperialism and pacifism bear no relation...We must therefore respond -- not in wanton revenge, but with precise determination...a proportionate response based on reliable information is well within the scope of justice.

Contrary to the views of some of our more bellicose FRiends here, it is indeed possible to be bitterly critical of US foreign policy and at the same time demand justice be done for this wanton attack on innocent American civilians. The call for a re-examination of US involvement overseas and the requirement that the US response to this week's attacks not be hasty or indiscriminate (i.e., that it be focused on the guilty parties) both stem from the same desire: to prevent thousands more Americans from becoming victims of future terrorism.
