Good luck showing intent to harm the United States; it was more akin to an attempt to help the United States. Also, war, what war? Saying it is war doesn't make it war unless the congress declares war. War against whom by the way?

Depends on how you define the United States; is it the people or the government? More and more people seem to think it's the government, particularly those in government. I think that's where the concern stems from.
