OMFG, I live near JFK air port and have clear view of mahattan from my balcony the amount of smoke is enormous and the smoke mushroom from the explosions is huge, this is scary.

All air ports are shut down right now, the hole on the building struck first is enormous, the second building they have the plane diving into that one on tape...

I heard it was a hijacking by terrorists. If that is the case then I don't want the guilty parties brought before a court of law. I want them hunted down. Brought in. And then skined alive. And then fed to dogs.

Yes I want revenge. And to hell with everything else.

All the news channels are saying that the FBI is investigating rumours of a hijacking earlier today... but apparently nobody's taken credit for it yet.

I'd be more interested in praying for the poor souls that got dragged into an attack like this, people on those hijacked planes, if indeed that's what they were, than in wishing revenge just right now.

Here's what MSNBC says:

THE AIRCRAFT struck about a half hour apart, starting fires and sending smoke billowing out of the skyscrapers. The first crash happened shortly before 9 a.m. ET.

MSNBC.com reporter Martin Wolk, who was inside one of the towers, said the lights flickered and then a loud bang was heard. People panicked and started to flee the building.

When they reached the lobby, smoke started to fill the building and people could see debris falling and many cars outside were damaged. �It was sheer pandemonium, people were screaming and crying, afraid to go outside because of the falling debris,� Wolk said. �We looked up and it looked like the top 20 floors were in flames.�

Another bystander described a barrage of debris raining down on the sidewalk below.

About 9 a.m., a second aircraft was seen crashing into the other tower. Broadcast cameras already watching the scene filmed the second plane ram the tower.

Large holes were visible in sides of the 110-story buildings. The tops of the twin towers were obscured by the smoke.

Thousands of pieces of what appeared to be office paper came drifting over Brooklyn, about three miles from the tower, one witness said.

I want a shotgun effect. I want the U.S. to target terrorists leaders and to take them out in a very public manner. I don't even care if they are part of what happened at the World Trade Centers.

I am sick and tired of the U.S. being the wiping boy of the world. Whatever is pissing somebody off at the moment they seem to think it is the U.S. that is the cause of their problem and take it out on us. Everybody thinks that we are a bunch of meanies. Fine. Then, by god, we should be the meanest and badest mofos on the block. You want to mess with us then, by god, face the consequences.

CNN:
quote:

NEW YORK (CNN) -- What appeared to be two passenger planes crashed into the World Trade Center towers in Manhattan on Tuesday, leaving both towers in flames.

About 18 minutes after the first plane hit the northern tower, a second plane slammed into the southern tower, erupting into a huge fireball. The harrowing images were caught in live video.

Live pictures showed a gaping hole on the side of the northern building, several stories down from the top. Black smoke was billowing from at least two sides.

The second crash hit the second tower several stories lower than the first in a huge burst of flame.

Sean Murtagh, a CNN vice president, was in an office near the World Trade Center towers at the time of the first crash. He witnessed the crash.

"It was a jet, looked like a two-engine jet," Murtagh said. "It looked like maybe a 737."

Murtagh said he saw the plane "teetering back and forth, wingtip to wingtip" before the plane smashed into the side of the building.

Jeanne Yurman witnessed the explosion that followed the crash.

"At first it was like leaflets," she said, describing the debris that fell to the ground. "There was tons of debris and it continues to fall out."

Yurman said she did not see the plane.


There are unconfirmed reports that at least one of the planes was a hijacked American Airlines 737.

This is very bad...... but before anyone goes off half cocked lynching a-rabs or whatever please remember that there was a lot of misdirected violence and anger after Oklahoma City and that turned out to be home grown, made-in-the-US anti-Federal Gov't terrorism.

Keep calm - they'll get the bastards who did this. The terrorists left tracks - they always do.

I just heard the pentagon has 'smoke' coming out of it...


it's unconfirmed tho...

PS - When it comes to Hi-jacking, the arab terrorists are the best known for hijacking airplanes, so I would begin a search with these orginizations... but I could be wrong.

If someone is actually so stupid as to claim responsibility for this, they are going to discover they have wakened a sleeping giant.

This just in!!!! There has been yet another explosion at the WTC just a few seconds ago. OMG. 1 of the buildings are no longer visable. I think it's being covered with smoke though. NOT because it had collapsed. I am also hearing reports of an attack against the Pentagon.

As I say again, this happened only a few seconds before this post was made.


SHIT! I'm wrong. One of the buildings have collapsed.

Calm down guys.... for all we know, it was a small group of people, willing to sacrifice their own lives, and they all died in the attack.

In fact, it's possible we may never know exactly who did it.

When the Oklahoma bomb first went off, we thought "Arab Terrorists!".

Let's just hope they can prevent any more attacks, control the situation without more loss of life.

For instance, WHY aren't they helicoptering to the roof of the other tower?

We have been too soft on terrorism for too long.

The time has come to start spending a significant portion of our budget on eradicating terrorism, wherever it hides, whatever country it hides in, regardless of national borders or diplomatic niceties.

It is time to declare open season on Terrorists.
