Here is an excerpt from the three-paragraph article, published on Ron Paul’s Voices of Liberty website:
It will be an immense dishonor to those dead Americans that the U.S. government will continue to commit the moral equivalent of 9/11 against others equally as innocent, equally as precious. It will be a disgusting display as they continue to try to convince us to excuse the deaths of innocents with horrible euphemisms like “collateral damage” and callous phrases like “people die in war”.
The least Americans can do is oppose them. The least we can do is regard them as warmongers and hold them in contempt. The way to honor those killed on 9/11 is to never forget that killing innocents is always wrong and can never be justified.
If “killing innocents is always wrong” and “collateral damage” is a “horrible euphemism,” the author must believe that the U.K. and U.S. bombings of German and Japanese cities during World War II were moral atrocities, since those bombings killed many thousands of innocent civilians. Indeed, the author presumably regards the U.S. and British armed forces who ordered and implemented those bombings as “warmongers” who are morally equivalent to Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda.
