9/11 a decade later

Please don't get me wrong, I strongly condemn the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and the loss of innocent lives and I believe there should've been a response, but was war against a country (that had nothing to do with it) the only answer?

A decade later... does anyone know how many buildings have been destroyed in the war to avenge the twin towers? or how many innocent people have lost their lives to avenge the 3000 victims? More than 10 times the 9/11 victims have lost their lives in Pakistan alone. The number is far greater in Afghanistan. Hundreds die every single day as a result of collateral damage! and people suffer the consequences on a daily basis.

I wonder how many more people have to die... including soldiers and civilians?

"The Americans say 'we are going to help you'. One of their building was destroyed and how many of our buildings were destroyed? They say they are going to help us, where is the help?"

"They give our kids guns to go and fight, and they give their own kids pen and paper to read and write"
