What's this then? "To all problems, there are exactly two solutions: 1) start an illegal war of retribution or 2) sit idly by and wait for the next attack"? If that's the case why do we even bother putting metal detectors in airports, removing dangerous weapons from carry on or employing CIA to investigate and prevent terror attacks? If any of those things had happened, 9/11 would not have. It was a failure of U.S. security, plain and simple.
...and please don't even try and argue that people shouldn't want to attack the U.S. in the first place because they have wanted to since the U.S. got involved with WWII (and probably before that)... not to mention the fact that the U.S. has been courting controversy in wartime ever since. If the American administration wants to bully the world, it can't afford to fall asleep on the watch. Ever.
Of course the alternative is that it can stop bullying the world and relax but who would ever realistically support that??
