Ode to 9-11

Blue or Red States of mind
Actions speak louder than words
The colors and labels matter not
Masks and illusions
We see through them to the truth
Has this nation achieved revenge?
What kind of justification 
to kill more of your own people & innocents
to react to the initial vile act?
Worthy Nobel Peace Prize recipient
 made this declaration:
Through violence you may murder the hater, 
                               but you do not murder hate. 

In fact, violence merely increases hate. 
No mission has been accomplished
Bankrupt morally and financially
We accept 10 years of wars
as if they were not to be questioned
A decade later, we still have no answer
What is the Noble Cause?
