I work in D.C., we all got sent home about 3 hours ago, just got home now. Traffic is insane to say the least. I think I saw that plane that hit the Pentagon seconds before it crashed, noticed it was flying low, but didn't really think of it. People in traffic on my way home were freaking and crouching beside their cars looking at the skies as rumors of a plane flying nearby were on the radio (all airports have been shut down). I am hoping it is just the military. Again, Washington metropolitan area right now is in total pandemoneum, I've never seen anything like it before. All I know is I hope this is all over now, and there are no more attacks still on the horizon

Yes indeed! I agree fully! What a wonderful way to begin the new millenium! *sudden thought* Maybe the terrorists planned the attack to begin during the year 2000, at the beginning of the new millenium. However, they weren't ready so they postponed it. It's possible

Zekke, are all the businesses closing down, or just some of them? also, any word on what's going on with the police force? my father is a policeman.

I just can't imagine that the Palestinians would be a party to this, surely they know that this is not the same as suicide bombings in Israel, because it's being perpetrated on foreign soil, and will only strengthen America's resolve and if anything will put them firmly behind the side of Israel. It doesn't make sense, but then again none of this makes sense.

I'm not sure I just remember Ziroc saying that this thread and all others with this subject would be allowed to go beyond 300 posts.

Surely you've seen the Palestanians cheering at the death of Jewish children. This is no different.
