“Unfortunate” does not means: expendable, necessary, or otherwise.
Exactly, i understand it as something like unlucky… Fortuna, roman goddess of luck… Well, then you had some unfortunate civilians in the Twin Towers, and surely you can understand and appreciate that those arabs who see the US as an enemy cheered when the towers were attacked.

Really? And what city was this?
I really have to polish my English as it seems.
