Wow, listening to Peter Jennings, he actually said "this is tantamount to war."

NOW, it's getting really scary.

ITS OFFICIAL FOLKS! Fastest growing topic on Taldren forums ever. 81st post in only a few hours. OMG!

Benladin or how ever you spell it, I think they should just sniper his ass. Put a hollow point right through his empty head and watch him go down faster than the world trade center!

Lets just hope it was Benladin and not the Chinesse because if it were Chinesse that would mean full scale war. And I happen to fit that 18 to 22 age brakit ripe for the draft.

No need - we have a perfectly good Army, Navy, and Air Force, and Marines to deal with the terrorists and the countries that harbor them.

The only thing we need the CIA for is to point us in the right direction.

great - I just found out my bro - who flies for United - had a route scheduled from Chicago to Pitt this morning, and the plane that went down in Pitt... My family has been calling me off the hook to try and find out what's up - Lou flies a 737, and the reports say it was a 747 that went down in Pitt - hopefully a sigh of relief for me but not the other people's family.

Well the FAA says that there are still a number of planes not accounted for. I hope there are not anymore.
The U.S. Canadian border has been closed at various locations, including Windsor/Detroit.

As many of the already airborne u.s. planes are being diverted to Canada, and there are unaccoutned mor planes, I wonder if any will strike a Canadian airport? Not likely, but possible since we are an ally with the u.s. and right next door.

When I think of P81,

No fear....if it were the chinese it would have been a nuke in a container ship....they dont want a war with us(yet)....just entire control of south east asia.

Who ever it was there is no doubt they pray to Allah *spits*....there is a new jihad as of this day...one they could never imagine....know it.

I really hope that was not your brother's plane, Ace.

The Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is being evacuated "as a precautionary measure". There are a great many people now stranded in strange places who now must find a place to stay until the airports re-open or they find alternative transportation.

[Idle Speculation]
How could a terrorist organization, even Bin Laden's, effect an attack of this magnitude and sophistication without major backing from a nation?

Actually Bin Laden has had a jihad against the US for quite a number of years.

We must catch our breath and help those who need help first. For those of you with Family, My prayers are with you, now and always.

Please Let's concentrate on helping those who need It.

There will be time for Justice later.

10,000 people in each toweer, with around 5,000 visitors. don't know the numbers about the Pentegon, But I imagine they are high also.

Mr. Presidant will do something about It, or his daddy will whip him. So Let's all keep our heads in this time of need.

I'm nearly dumbstruck with sadness for the dead, and with some incredulity that any organization short of an organized government is capable of such stunning coordination and sheer destructive capability.

Since I work in an international company, with many Arab and Asian co-workers, I have a bit calmer outlook than many posters, but not by much today. This is our generation's "Pearl Harbor". I have no doubt that we are capable of as much outrage and vengeance as our grandfathers and fathers were in 1941. The truly enormous casualties that must result from this will demand righteous retribution.

For all those currently in the military, I pray godspeed in your organizations' efforts to find the people who instigated this infamy against innocents. As an American, I'll stand behind any military act demanded by our leaders to avenge this tragedy. Perhaps these terrorists did a "good" thing for us after all---this nation now has the the reason and backbone necessary to find and exterminate the low-lifes that perpetrate such acts around the world, and in particular against us. We are now officially at WAR. It's time to unleash our own defenders. If it's a "Holy War" these people want, by GOD we'll give it to you!

Where is Harison Ford when you need him? No, not Han Solo, but Jack Ryan the CIA super agent who single handidly took care of an entire Columbian drug cartel in "Clear and Present Danger."

But then again Han Solo with his Corellian crusier with Chubacca at his side would be nice to take care of those Middle Eastern bitches!

My heart and prayers go out to you, Dog, and I hope that your brother is A-ok. I've heard on the news that the buildings were aleady in the processes of evacuation after the first plane hit. Hopefully they managed to get most of the populace out before the bad things started. Again, hopes, prayers, and thoughts towards you, and post anything you find out about ASAP. I know the phones are not working so hot on the right side coast at this time (the doc in my division tried calling family over there) but keep trying.

What was the reasoning behind this? The purpose?
Ok, so you don't like the u.s. There are more effective and less deadly ways to damage the u.s. eg oil, imports/exports, etc.

Nor do I understand the constant state of war in the mid east. They fight over territory, and each side claims to want an end to the killing, but nobody wants to take the steps towards peace.
Why can't they all just hold hands and sing a song in the spirit of peace and harmony?

Now their wars are spilling over to the u.s.
Why do they hate you guys so much anyway? I don't get it. The reason for this was???? What?

I posted this on another thread, but the loss of life appears to be 4x that of Pearl Harbor. If this is traced back to a nation, you can probably expect a declaration of war, call up of the reserves, and possibly even the draft.

You may even see us invade the country and occupy it as we did Japan. This was a very serious political misfire for someone. The nation is already galvanizing into a cold rage that has not been seen here since 1941.

That is ridiculous. I can understand where it would cause a serious lack of academic drive and willpower, (nobody is being very productive at work today), but on the other hand, the schools could be helping the children cope with the situation.

Thanks guys....I'm still trying to get some news. I'm pretty scared...


My brother works for Marsh USA and they owned an entire floor in the building that had the antenna on the top...the big spire. The floor was located right about when the first plane hit. I'm almost certain that few of his co-workers made it. I can only hope that he was not there...


I'm just appalled...it's shocking. The only reason I'm even on this board right now is that I feel a sense of community with many of those that frquent this board...I'm constantly on the phone with family and friends right now...but this provides an outlet, as well.
