Just think of how much hate you have to be carrying to be able to celebrate deaths of innocents.

That being said, I don't think that should be an excuse to start bashing Palestinians/Arabs in the streets, because that would solve nothing and would just make you give in to the hate. Don't give in to Sarevok! Don't feed the infernal wrath!



That is very true.
It could very well have been an American.
No matter who it turns out is responsible though wee must all remember not to hate the nation for the actions of some of it's people.

Excuse my language but it appears like the shit is going to hit the fanes across the world.

Speaking as a combat vet (and as you all know, I don't mention that often) and a former member of the Special Forces, I am outraged by this attack. The frustration, sadness, anger and outright rage I feel is threatening to overwhelm me. Thousands of people dead, many thousands more injured, and all for what? So some millionaire psychopath can make a point?!?!?! Believe me, whomever is resonsible for this has made the worst possible mistake in the history of bad mistakes. You now have the undivided attention of the entire United States of America. You are in deep sh*t now, buddy.

I'm sorry, I don't mean to swear, but this is the most mind numbing thing I've ever experienced in my life and I feel that I must pass along my feelings to you all as I have come to accept you as my sort of extended family. This day will be remembered forever. God bless the victims and families.

Glad to hear that you finally heard from your mom (and Dad). I heard about that car bomb on the radio on my way home, but it was at that time unconfirmed. I've been hearing also about another plane that went down earlier. My mother said she heard on the news that it went down and an "undisclosed" area, which makes you wonder why so secret? Then a friend of mine just told me that this plane was flying in the air above the Potomac that would not identify itself, and the military shot it down into the Potomac. So far I have not heard personally myself any confirmation on either of these "rumors". Keeping an eye out on the news on that.

Hey K-Dog, good to see you back, unfortunate circumstances though...
Like you, I am overcome with disgust and a strong desire for revenge. I hope that this all plays out with a minimal loss of life, more innocents dying would only further the tragedy. The guilty, on the other hand, deserve whatever they get.

Let's hope we can find a corner to escape the US backlash.
