Do you think America will take these terrorist attacks so easily? Or do you think they plan on retaliation? I know that Europe is very angry about these hijacked planes and they're sick to death of taking the palastinians crap. What's your opinion on this?

I really, really hope they don't. The cost would be too high - WWIII. And it hasn't been proven that it was Palestinia! I think that a war over this would only make things worse for us all.

Kaz is right no-one has been found guilty so lets not jump to blaming entire nations. Also if the attacks were by a terrorist organisation, using conventional military forces against them is not very effective, look at any conflict with terrorist vs. standing armies.

NO WAR!
It'll only make things worse.
But we can't just let the terrorists get away with this.
I can't really think clearly just now...

Declare war on who?

Calm down, people. Hysteria is not the answer.

It may be days, weeks, months, or even years before we can determine who is responsible.

As Avatar points out, after the Oklahoma City bombing everyone was quick to assume that it was the work of international terrorists. It turned out that Americans were responsible.

It is important to not overreact out of hysteria. One of the goals of terroism is precisely to sow internal confusion and hasty mistakes as a result. Don't let them win by losing your heads.

Thanks for backing me there. I know US citizens will be pretty distressed and mad for revenge. But let's calm down. It's very likely to be a Arab attack. Due to the organizationa and scale and suicidal methods. But nothing is certain. Extreme Anarchist, Anti-capitalist and Enviromentalists are all possible candidates.

It was said on the radio in the US that if the terrorist group was backed by a nation it would problbably lead to war. But dear god let us hope that doesn't happen.
