What is your take on this situation right now?

I have to say I am glad there has been no bombing so far and that we
appear to be moving slowly and with some restraint. I agree in principle
that if Bin Laden is involved with this, retaliation is called for,
although I admit my preference would be for this to take place as a
trial in an international court of law.  (I'm not sure how realistic
this desire is given the circumstances.)

I'd like to hear more from you on this.
