.....just a few days after the attack on the world trade centre in September 2001....saying the Americans more or less had it coming to them....
We can rightly blame some politicians and political / religious extremists for many of our ills but it's never them who suffer is it? It's ordinary people -- in this case "the Americans,"* more than 3,000 of whom did nothing worse on Sept 11 than go off to work in the office like any other day.

*And of course, plenty of other nationalities too who died in the World Trade Center that day.
