Retaliation appropriate

Perhaps Mr. Benedict (letters, Dec. 28) could explain, how many of a country’s citizens have to be killed before that country reacts to protect them? Is it 100, or maybe 1,000? How would he feel if he were living along the Canadian border and some terrorist fired rockets into his neighborhood and killed someone in his family?

Would he want his government to react? Would he want to just slap them on the hand and tell them not to do it again? I suppose he thinks the United States overreacted to Pearl Harbor.
