The Christians who were in the twin towers were killed by Moslems who had witnessed decades of seeing children die in their father's arms by the guns of Jews who had seen their parent's generation nearly exterminated by Christians. The cycle repeated once again as all three agreed it had since Cain and Abel.
Violence is not immune from the laws of physics where all actions have an equal and opposite reaction.
We may well accomplish our goals of killing certain groups, but just like our own Stinger missle which pursue our planes from the last Afghanistan war which we "won", the violence we introduce to accomplish this goal will come back to haunt us. If it is proper to seek revenge for the loss of those we love, then what shall we expect in the coming years from all the orphans our vengeance creates. I believe in our haste we are actually making ourselves and our children less safe.
