To the Russian people:
I was deeply saddened when I heard the news of the two planes that crashed in your country. Although I do not know why they crashed, I just wanted to express my sympathy. I am an American citizen, and I know that we are definitely not quite popular right now. It was my desire to express to you that not all Amercians are evil and greedy, and I think the majority of Americans are decent people that feel the pain of losing loved ones, no matter what country they are from. It is my hope that one day we can all live in a somewhat peaceful existence. Until that time, know that when something dreadful happens to your country, there are others that do care. Peace be with you all.
The strike was defensive in nature and came in response to three attacks on the US military in February
