Suppose terrorists had chosen a target other than the WTC. Suppose they had chosen Berkely campus and the Oscars instead. What would your attitude towards the War on Terror be? Would you

think the same, but feel more strongly against anti-terrorism measures, including Iraq
think the same, but feel more strongly for anti-terrorism measures, including Iraq;
think terrorist were less of a threat to you personally, but feel the same;
My initial reaction would have been the same. I don't know that my 2+ years later attitude would be the same, though. It would depend on the reactions of the so-called 'anti-war' crowd. Would they still be 'anti-war'? Or would they be trying to secede from the Union in an attempt not to get blamed for 'American hegemony.' Or would they all hunker down and try to quit drawing attention to themselves?
I think I detect a certain family resemblance.
