What "millions of people"? Sending in ground troops to get rid
of the terrorists does not require any such death toll. That we
take action does not make it "blood-soaked revenge".

War is a nasty business and I am sure all of us here would
prefer a good alternative. But it is not true that there "has
to be a better way." In this case, there may well not be a
better way.
