Path To 9/11 Justice

I was watching the coverage at ground zero and several comments made about the tactics used in the war on terror seemed to fall into the category of, "whatever works" to get those who attacked us and who might attack us again.

Tunnel vision justice, if you will.

That the deaths of innocents which came as the result of our nation's actions happened one, two or ten at a time seems to make those deaths less significant to us than our losses five years ago. But should we mourn the deaths of the innocent civilians in an official or un-official war based only on whether those lost were among our own?

Does mourning all innocents who died on 9/11/2001 and all innocents who died in subsequent actions in countries that seem as foreign as the moon make me unpatriotic?

To those who would say yes, I just want to remind you that you have counterparts around the world who prioritize based on their patriotism. I guess they aren't as foreign as the moon after all.
