    Sorry if I mislead you Nick, but when I said "none of us" i was speaking of the people here on this board. Wasn't speaking for our government.

    Who Said that none of you are going to start a war, if Bush is representing the general sentiment (which as president isnt that his job?) He said himself (cant remember the exact quote) that america will stage an attack on any government found to be responsible.
    What W said was that justice would be swift and sure for any who supported or aided the terrorist. That is a far cry from "attacking any government".

    I have been watching the postings all day and refrained from commenting. Your posting was one of the most balanced I have seen all day till you said this.

    As one who has been seen war first hand it is not a pretty thing. However, America will track down and bring to justice those responsible for this acts. It is our right and our duty and one can only hope that justice is swift and sure.
    They told (us) to open up the Embassy, or "we'll blow you away." And then they looked up and saw the Marines on the roof with these really big guns, and they said in Somali, "Igaralli ahow," which means "Excuse me, I didn't mean it, my mistake".

    Ok, im still on the 4th page but i must post. When i heard this @ school... the 1st thing i thought about was Prey, and all the other people. Omg im starting to cry. THis is so sad. Who could do such a thing, all those kids sitting at home waiting for there mommy and daddy to come home. Dammit. Im so glad everyone is ok, prey seriouisly, god im so happy you are safe, damn imagine if you took that job.

    Now, if bush diclares war, they say that if a nuke hits anywhere, it can destroy half of the us in 13seconds. If he declares war, the best thing to do is just send ****ing all the planes in a bomb them to nothing, or they are gonna drop some huge **** on us. Im so scared, everyone is saying that there is not going to be a war, and i kept on saying yes there is. Look at the future. It can all happen. So many people dying. Dammit in those buildings, the people on the top floor, no hope at all and they know it. Just imagine everyone being so calm down the stairways. Then just falling. All those people that lost there lives in less then 5 seconds. I cant believe this. Someone has to be so sick... just ****ing messed up.

    I dont know what to do, seriously, Canada and USA stick together. If USA goes to war, so do we.

    I dunno, if ur country asked you to goto war.. would you ?

    PS: Something that is so different about this thread, is that there are no smilies. That just makes me even more sadder. I dont know why, but it just means how serioius it is. This is very seriousy people. We have no clue. Im scared to goto bed, what happens if something happens while im astleep.

    I just dont know. I just dont really know, except of all the hate i have in my heart. I hope those terrorists, as soon as they crashed, they went straight to hell, and will burn there for ****ing ever.
    I have so much sympathy for the people on that plane. Imagine getting a call from your husband or wife, saying that " your plane was hijacked, and that i love you very very much. and there is a good chance im gonna die. So i love you. " Just imagine the terror inside that plane. Just that picture of the plane flying into the building. Just perfect, sliced right through it. Its so damn sicking i wanna puke. This is a day in history, which will never be forgotten, September, 07, 2001.

    Just i wonder whats next. The USA does not want to be known as a week country... Well they show that by fighting back, so packistan says, when are they gonna stop... who knows, lets bomb them. Then Packistan calls on a country that is close to them to help fight, and the USA calls on others.. i can see it all happening.

    Guys, I dunno, But whatever happens, I love u all.
    God bless you guys, and all the people that died on this day. Innocent lives taken.. for what ?

    Peace,
    Matt

    All day long I've been thinking about what happened.

    I still cant believe it happened. I remember my mom waking me up telling me about some terrorists in New York. Then I remember my father telling me that The World Trade Center Towers were toppled...I couldn't believe it.

    What a shocking day.

    Yea I know how you feel. My sister was getting ready for work, i was sleeping and my mom was making breakfast for her. She heard on radio and said pretty loud about what had happened. I jumped outta bed, turn on the tv, and sadly it was true..

    This series of acts defies belief and yet there it is.

    To all those affected in any way by this act of terrorism I pray for you all in this. What a tragic loss of innocent life and to prove what? Among these were 70 Australian workers or tourists.

    I hope the response to this terrorism will be swift and complete. Applying the death penalty would be too good for the perpetrators of this terrible, terrible crime.
    Be strong my American friends.

    What does Packistan have to do with this? And who is the US going to declare war against? More likely that US will seek out the individuals responsible and bring them to justice rather than blanket bombing of innocent people.

    I think he may have been mistaken and had intended to say Afghanistan...they're known to be sheltering bin laden...the US leaders have made it pointedly clear that the government who is sheltering those who were responsible for this will shoulder the weight of retaliation as well...

    You bomb a nation`s biggest economic hubs and their most important military intelligence base, killing thousands, its a pretty safe bet they`re going to declare war on you. Those are the consequences you face.@I feel sympathy for the organization or country that did this like I feel sympathy for someone who walks up to a 6'6, 300-pound guy in a bar and hits him over the head with a beer bottle.

    So suppose afghanistan does go up in a mushroom cloud...well, thats really no more than anyone would expect, is it?
    Funny is when a fat lady walks around while someone plays the tuba. Once you've seen that, you'll never laugh at anything else. Except maybe a skeleton dancing around while someone plays the xylophone, which is almost exactly the opposite of a fat lady walking around while someone plays the tuba. Well, a skeleton is the opposite of a fat lady. But is a xylophone the opposite of a tuba? History will decide.

    Some of you may not know but many in Afghanistan live under oppression brought about by the Taliban regime. Bombing these innocent people would be a tragic mistake. Make no mistake those responsible should be punished, but lets make sure who they are and where they are, so that innocent people are not killed.

    When they do fly home, I have a feeling it will be the safest flight they have ever been on.
