Jut - the missle defense system is being created to shoot down nuclear missles - not civilian airliners.

Perhaps the NMD did us a much greater service by turning the attentions of these soon to be castrated and dead men from launching a rogue nuke missle (estimated death tol in NY - 1,000,000) to a much smaller (but still very very horrific) scale... and the number of people that HAD to be involved to pull this off will not be too hard to track down, because now we will start applying full pressure -economic, diplomatic, and military - to any country that will not help find the people responsible.

This is an act of war. 10,000 people, 10,000 US civilians (and many foreign nationals that worked in the WTC- may they rest in peace), are dead.

This will not be fought as a conventional war - but on a much more tactical scale and a much more brutal scale. The gloves are now officially off - justice will be delivered.

Find out everyone that is responsible for this act/acts and eliminate them.

Any and every third world country that has harbored / supported terrorists should be pissing in their pants right now - even if they aren't responsible for THIS act of war.

there is no way to combat terrorism. the UK has been trying for the last 50 years with Ireland.
You cannot fight something that sits in he shadows with no face.
The terrorists were out to proove that point, nothing else.
Although I want the motherfuckers who did this to roast in hell america unlike the terrorists cannot simply go around bombing anyone they feel like.

Last time I checked the US was still a soveriegn nation. I say screw NATO if they dont like it. I think that the US and any of our allies that want to join in should bomb any country that supports terrorists straight to hell. If any country doesnt like it they can pucker up and kiss our collective asses.

we are at war with Islam.

Im not advocating genocide. If they recant and renounce Islam, then hold your fire.

There are muslims of all races. This is what must change. Its a hateful primitive ideology. How would the eradication of Islam be any different than the eradication of human sacrifice? Humans have cleaned house and taken out the trash regarding spiritual matters before, and I say its high time to do it again. Down With Islam !! Muslims, swear off your addiction to evil!!

And yes we can nuke people. We have.

Islam has picked a fight with Freedom, and its thunderdome baby. Two mindsets enter, one mindset leaves.

Shame that they are so anti-gun... one flight attendent on each plane with a gun could have thwarted the whole plot...

And an even greater shame that people thought so much of their own lives that they didn't try to stop the terrorists. It would seem that in the case of the plane in Pittsburgh, PA and one that bounced short of the Pentagon, instead of directly ramming it, probably had people who fought back in them.

One of the planes that hit the WTC had 11 employees & 92 passengers, you think someone would have tried to stop them instead of being used as a human missile....

I just heard the same thing , It is a tragedy to say the least,

I will call upon my vengeance in the Name of Tate Caudle, a schoolfriend , and later am army officer.

Even though I went to the CORP, his friendship, and love for this country will be remembered. As with all those who have had tragedy brought to there doorsteps.


Dogmatix, and AcePylot, What has happend to you and your families? Please Let us know.

God bless, and I hope , and I will pray, that we can do something as a whole nation and world to put an end to this type of action.

I won't Let my best friends Name go to waste by hatred, Rascism, nor act's of attrition.

However, I will support this country in the only way I know how.

God Bless everyone.

Im sure the senate (I saw interviews with several senators they all said that they would declare war any country responsible for this.) will be more than glad to pass a declration of war against any country responsible for this occuring. And, besides the US is what percentage of NATO? Two-thirds ish? (whether that is the correct thing to do is a good question, Im sure everyone in the nation's immediate reaction was "Who did this and how long before Bush sends them to hell?")

My family has heard from my brother. He is fine. 99% of the time he is at his desk on the 96th the floor of Building One (the one with the big antenna) at the time the building was hit with the plane. This was that one time in a hundred that he wasn't there.


From the pictures and video I have seen, the first plane to hit the WTC hit his building at roughly his floor.

He works for March USA...and they have managed to track down 30% of the people that worked in that office and all are okay. It is estimated that at least 20% of the office's workforce was in the office at that early hour. Most are presumed dead.

My brother sounds devastated...many of his friends at work are likely dead or severly injured. His offices are no more.


I've never had a great affinity for the different arabic peoples...certainly not the militant types that take great joy in perpetrating and celebrating these kinds of acts. When I heard about the people in Jerusalem that were dancing around and celebrating at the news of this dastardly deed, I nearly through up...and then a wave of anger rushed over me.

I have heard reports that the voices of people screaming in Arabic had been heard over the cockpit radio of one of the hijacked planes.

If this is the case and the radicals among of these people are responsible for this cowardly act, then I hope with all of my heart that we bring down a rain of destruction on them and anyone or any state that harbors these criminals.

Watching that second jetliner crash in into Building Two was just surreal...I've seen it from four or five different angles and I still cannot believe it.

The rumor of a plane being hijacked in California is just that..a rumor.

The plane that crached in PA, was headed for Camp David, Maryland. Supposedly the pilots/crew faught back, and the pilot crashed the plan to the ground.

757/767 cockpits are almost identical. If you get trained in one, you can fly them both. Their are any number of programs worldwide training ppl on how to fly these things. Apparetnly they are simple to fly, but the precision used was no simple task. Whoever did this had state support.

Re: people dancing in the streets. Don't believe everything you see. Were people dancing in the streets because they were happy or because there was a TELEVISION CAMERA there for them to dance to?

I was watching BBC TV as an alternative to CNN and they were under the impression most places weren't reacting like we were seeing on television (i.e. there is no great celebration going on in Palestine or Eygpt.)

Hell, for all we know this thing could be the Chinese or something. Maybe its a domestic group for all we know (how many people does it take to hijack 4 aircraft?).

[EDIT: Ok, its more where did the people get the training to fly these 757s/767s. The WTC hits were dead on, and the pentagon hit thankfully did not hit dead on. Imagine the casualties if it did.]

I heard something up above that really burrs me.

Let's not start questioning the motives of the victims here.

Can anyone honestly believe that the passengers on those planes had any idea of their fate. In past skyjackings, the terrorists land the plane, negotiations take place, and usually, you end up living.

The passengers did PRECISELY what they were told to do. And in doing so, they were attempting keep other passengers from getting killed.

Perhaps if Mr. Terrorist had gotten on the intercom and said, "Ladies and Gentleman, for your amusement, we will be taking a flaming tour of the World Trade Center, and in the process will kill thousands", then perhaps the passengers would have done something.

However, I'm convinced that the PAX of all flights involved thought that by doing nothing, they were trying to spare additional carnage.

Lets not be so insensitive, that we even BEGIN to lay a splinter of blame to ANY of the victims on those planes.

I hope that there is not another post here that attempts to discredit any of the victims. That's in bad taste.

Don't be too hard on the Intel agencies, either. Knowing that something is about to happen is not the same as knowing what, where, and when - and without the rest of the info, it is impossible to defend against.

Now there are explosions in Kabul, Afghanistan.

BTW I was not trying to belittle the victims of those planes nor be insensitive. I just find it absurd to be hijacked by knife weilding maniacs. Someone trying to rob a bank with a knife would be laughed at.

Now don't get me wrong, I realize that they were scared and the hijackers were combat trained and I have no idea what actually went on during the incident, for all I know they were holding children at knife point.

Just spouting frustration I guess. No harm done.

What if that flight attendant was the hijacker? Just for arguement, what if that flight attendent went beserk, or the weapon accidentally discharged. You know what happens to a presuried cabin with a hole the size of a bulllet is made in it when the aircraft is at 40,000 feet?

Did they know that they were being hijacked? Its a big aircraft, outside the first class cabin it might have been hard to see what was going on. I dont think this is like one of those spy movies where the bad guys go on the intercom and explains their entire plot to the passengers.

Heck, for all we know, the passengers were killed by the terrorists when they hijacked the aircraft.

OMG...

I was at school when this happened. I live in San Diego--home of a sub squadron, MCAS Miramar, and a bunch of US ships. Everybody was panicking...

My thoughts and prayers go to the victims. But even in the time of national crisis, we do know that this was only a small group of fundamental Muslims. We must exterminate the ones who perpetrated this infamous act, and do it soon. These images shook me to the core when I loaded them:

I'll stop typing now. The shock has obviously reduced my writing to an unacceptable rambling conglomeration...

BTW, whoever is advocating complete war against all of the Muslims is a fucking idiot.

Reporters are being bused into the pentagon for a press conference, according to CNN.

Besides, we/they hit an ammunition dump, thats a pretty valid military target, even if they didnt attack us this time.

Jut - I did a search on "explosion kabul" when I saw your post. I got more than 3500 hits. Looking at them, it appears that explosions are a pretty regular occurrence in Kabul - When I restricted the search to 2001, I came back with only 1500 hits. I wouldn't be too quick to point fingers at the US on this one.

I wouldn't be too quick to point fingers at the US on this one.

sethan it has been confirmed that the explosions are from cruise missiles, the american guy on newsnight(BBC2) sorry i forgot his name, is doing the 'i cannot reveal that information at this time' thingy
