Of course, she and I were both raised in military families, so we tend to want to go to the defense. I've said for years that I don't care if they want women on the front lines or not - if the fighting hits home, they'll get women on the front lines!!!!! And I'll be the first!

I think that this act is something that has been planned for a while, way before the Tom Clancy book. For this to be pulled off with such precision, it had to be well funded, and planned.

And yes, God help them WHEN we find out, and catch, who is responsible.

I agree. And, yeah - WHEN, I've got to have faith that we WILL find out who really did this.

I'm sure the reason is, because of the use of phone lines for emergency, as here in NYC. Keep the faith!!

Seriously. I've been swtiching the channel between ABC and CNN. I was pretty sure that ABC was the one that was interviewing him, but I half-tuned in to the conversation, but I know I read his name on the bottom scrolling. You know the "interviewing Tom Clancy" sort of thing.

This can't be a form of political terrorism..As everyone else has said, this only strengthens the resolve of the American people..
I saw the Palestines celebrating on TV..a sight to make blood boil.
When I saw the towers it was like watching a scene from Armageddon in real life..its horrifying, and the deed was done with nothing but raw hatred and evil intent. No writer would ever write something like this on such a scale, it just issint believeable that ANYONE would be able to take over so many planes and crash them into major government facilities.
And whats the deal with TWO DAMN PLANES into the WTC? Its like shooting a dead horse to make sure its dead! Its just sick!
I say go to war with whichever damned nation that did this and wipe their cities off the map..

Dear god take pity on us this day
Let not the power of the US be provoked
It can only lead to the death of nations
And the end of a peacefull era
It will lead to death and distruction

I'm quite certain AngelofDeath is right. We will pray that your loved ones can get in contact soon. Try not to worry, hon. We're here at least.
