    Thanks for the op ed, reminding again about the binary forces of nature....


    The spirit of America -- "Can do! Let's build it!" is contra posed by the
    spirit of "Can't do, so let's blow up what others get done."

    On 010911 innovation and dedication brought terror and havoc to unsuspecting
    targets. Now, larger forces of innovation and industry are being dedicated to
    bring our enemies to justice, or bring justice to them, to borrow a phrase.

    So, we learn the lesson again that the price of freedom is eternal vigilance
    that increases the cost and lowers the opportunity for harm.

    Again, good op ed piece.
