For 9/11, I'd like to address all the people who scream that things need to be done, that we need to go war, that we need to give up certain freedoms, or else "the terrorists will win."

I'd like them to think about what that means. And possibly explain to me what a nation in which the terrorists have won would look like. Obviously, they're not going to invade and put an Islamic regime in place. And we're not allowed to investigate what their goals or motives are, or we're being sympathetic to them. No, we have to just assume they "hate our freedom", even though we're not the sole bastion of freedom in the world.
So let's think about that on this day of remembrance. What would the United States look like if the terrorists won?
