The Point of 9/11

It's the eighth anniversary of 9/11 when Muslim extremists killed over 3,000 Americans.  I wonder what point they were trying to make?  Wouldn't you think that if 3,000 poeple died because some group was pissed off, we would know exactly what they were pissed off about?
But we don't.
All I know is that we got pissed off, kicked the shit out of the 6th largest army in the world, executed the Iraqi President and occupy the god forsaken countries of Iraq and Afganistan to this day.
So if the maniacs who flew into the World Trade Towers, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania were trying to make a point... they probably came up a little short.  How did they think we were going to react after they attacked a bunch of innocent civilians on a Tuesday work day?  Did they think we were were going to roll over and cower?   Just seems pointless.
But then again, I'm not really sure what the point was.
I guess you have to be certain that you know who the pointless haters are, and keep your guard up, even if you're not clear on why they hate you.
We haven't really mastered our environment in our sophisticated modern culture.   We are still subject to the attack of irrational, wild animals, just like our club dragging ancestors were.
