I am very sorry for the loss your family and countless other families around the world, on both sides of the battle lines. It would be wonderfull if we all had the wisdom, patience and compromise to settle every issue with kind words and a handshake. But that is about as impossible as making every country in the world prosperous without any industry or pollution. We will always have peoples who dissagree with us or hate us for no more reason than we are better off than they are, or they don't get along with others that are friendly to us.
There is a time for peace, a time to grieve for those we lost- both in peace and war, and unfortunately ther is a time to make war, and take the offensive against those who would do you harm before they have chance to do more harm. If we stood by and did nothing there is more than a little probability that the freedoms we now enjoy would be lost to those who come after us. War is an absolute horror to mankind and more than a few have been fought for very little or no good reasons. Loss of our freedoms do to our own comlaciency would be one of a very short list of things that could be worse.
