Tisha B'av is mainly for mourning for the temple, but we include mention of the other tragedies as well, The purpose of Jews returning to their land is not for them to be an independent but to be able to server G-d fully. The talmud says that Moses did not want to go to Eretz Yisroel to eat from it's plentiful fruit but to perform the mitzvos which can only be done in the holy land, Similarly we mourn our most important loss, the ability to bring sacrifices to G-d.
