Apparently the plan was to topple one tower into the other, thank God that did not happen.

So far nobody has claimed responsibility, but they do have suspicions.

remember when the German guy flew all the way through the best Russian Air Defence System and landed in the Red Square.
When the Russian Su-27 Jet flew over the US aircraft carrier.

Visit your local recruiter. By the time you get out of training, you may be just in time to personally get a peice of the a$$ of the people who did this!

Yeah. Just put a pair of hijackers in certain airplanes and let them take over the planes just when they are nearing the 'target'. It's only too easy to hijack a plane after you get your gun through.

This picture has nothing to do with the other part of my sig. It's just cool.

I've been following the thread as best as I can between classes, since we can't get any of the major news service sites up here at work. It's perfectly fine to express grief or other emotion about the news, but please, people, try to refrain from exploding at members of other races. I have friends in Denton who are Middle Eastern students and I can only imagine the terror they are going through right now, fearing retaliation from others.

It is a horrible, sick, terrifying situation. My supervisor whom I think the world and all of is a sergeant in the US Army Reserves. She is due for retirement in May. I dread the thought of her having to go to war, if that possibility arises.

Keep posting news here, guys. It's the only link some of us have (at least I do until I get home and to a TV.)
