As far as war goes, I don't think it will come to that. The only thing that I want is for the organization (be it a terrorist group or a country) to be held accountable for their attack. And by accountable I mean I don't want them considering anything like this again in the near future.

Any of you ever read any Tom Clancy? This totally reminds me of his books. In fact in the end of Debt of Honor, the Japanese flew a 747 into the capitol building and it was completely destroyed.

I hope we don't go to war. No one knows who's responsible for the attacks. We can't go declaring war, if we're not sure who's responsible. My father is in the military, he's the only dad i've got. I don't want to lose him. Many of my friends have turned 18 and may be drafted. Besides our economy does not need a war right now. And neither do I.

Not that I want a war, but war always and I mean ALWAYS stimulates the economy. Actyally nothing can pull a country together like a war that the people believe in.

Hate to say it, but in the past war HAS helped failing economies.

You mean, like the way it helped the economies of Germany, Japan, and Great Britain in World War II? Sorry, but that is an often repeated bit of nonsense.

However, this is not the time or place for such a discussion. I will be happy to debate the point with you at a later time.
