The Moussaoui Mentality

From AP:

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - Confessed al-Qaida conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui said Thursday it made his day to hear accounts of Americans' suffering from the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and he would like to see similar attacks "every day."

Taking the witness stand for the second time in his death-penalty trial Thursday, Moussaoui mocked a Navy sailor who wept on the stand as she described the death of two of her subordinates.

"I think it was disgusting for a military person" to cry, Moussaoui said of the testimony of Navy Lt. Nancy McKeown. "She is military, she should expect people at war with her to want to kill her."

Moussaoui said he had "no regret, no remorse" about the 9/11 attacks. Asked by prosecutor Rob Spencer if he would like to see it happen again, Moussaoui responded: "Every day until we get you."

There are thousands of other Moussaoui's out there. They lead insurgent efforts in Iraq. They hide in the caves of Afghanistan. They plan and they plot for their next shot at killing Americans. The are convicted and driven and show absolutely no remorse.

And if Iran acquires nuclear weapons, it is highly possible that those weapons could find their way into the hands of these types of people.

Still just want to wait it out and let the U.N. deal with the situation?
