According to Conflict Theory, conflict is imminent, as far as more than two powers exist. Following this analysis, there is not any surprise on what happened.

Because of what happened, everyone is looking at the US as the victim, but let's place things in perspective, and try to look at it, as a consequence of the foreign policy that the US applies to countries like Cuba or Iraq.

Many people argue that innocent civilians died, that people that had nothing to do with all this died. Well, I am sorry if I am the first one to tell you this, but many innocent civilians in Iraq and Cuba are suffering, not because of a terrorist attack that lasted a few hours, but because of a blockade, imposed by the US on this countries. A blockade that does not distinguish between civilians and government officials, and that has been going on for years. A blockade that stops medicine from entering the country for those who urgently need it, because of the fear that biological warfare can be created out of it.

If it was not ethical, politically correct, or whatever the name you want to give to the terrorist attack to the US, so is going to the offencive attack from the US, in which innocent civilians will also die. The US will only lower herself to what her inhabitants are complaining so much about. Thus this is not the solution.

So, let's think it over. Maybe what happened is not an action, but rather a reaction to the foreign policy that the US applies to other states.
