    CONNECTION BETWEEN TALIBAN AND TERRORISTS MADE...

    And now, Abdul Hai Mutamaen, the Taliban's chief spokesman, warns of revenge if the U.S. attacks Afgahnistan .
    Any "revenge" that may be levied against the United States by the reigning Taliban government of Afgahnistan could only be effected through actions of terrorist groups.
    Regardless of their assurance that BinLaden is not supported by the Taliban, this statement clearly indicates their willingness and ability to direct and initiate terrorist activities.
    These guys are #1 on my list for resolute military action!
    Threaten us? Right here and now??? Man, they're begging for annihilation!!!

    there was a story here on the enws about these protestors (there was only two of em, a guy and a girl, and I think the guy was only there because he thought the girl would give him some if he protested with her, LOL) but they were protesting the fact that America was considering retaliation. They painted themselves in all red and said it was time to stop the bloodshed now. When the reporter asked how they thought the US should resolve the issue, she said "I don't know, maybe we could all sit down and discuss it like civilized human beings" She obviously had no clue what she was protesting.
    If those guys don't like our foreign policy, lets see how they like it when their country becomes one giant parking lot for our allies :).

    What got me Matt was when I saw the British Gaurds playing our national anthem on trombones and other instruments and seeing hundreds of British people watching and crying and putting flowers and other things down, it was very refreshing and warming.

    I don't think there has been a day that has went by since Tuesday, that I have no shed a tear.

    I try to hold it back while at home, as my mom is till very traumatized by this, but it hurts me deeply. I am from NJ and it hurts bad

    I live in Michigan. In Dearborn, one of the largest Arab-American communities in the country, people are scared. Windows are getting broken, people are getting beat up, death threats are being made. It's pretty crazy.

    Situation in downtown Phoenix

    California authorities have warned Arizona authorities that 2 vehicles ladden with high explosives were bound for Arizona.

    One of the vehicles meeting the description was located across from our "old" federal courthouse. Phoenix police are in the process of evacuating a huge section of downtown. From 7st to 7th ave and from Vanburen to Buckeye rds.

    The "old" federal courthouse was recently abandonded since the new building the "glass house" was completed. There is a good chance that anyone looking at maps of the city would have thought that the old building would have been their target.

    The new courthouse is very controveral for a number of reasons. #1 it is an enormous glass structure which seems terribly vulnerable to terrorist attack. #2 The lobby area is not airconditioned, the architects who were from New York believed the building would cool itself somehow even though temperatures in Phoenix can reach to over 120 degrees. Lobby temperatures have been staying in the mid 90s all summer. Federal security guards are using portable airconditoners and fans to try and stay cool.

    I work in NYC, 40 blocks north of WTC. I heard the first plane fly over my head as I walked down Park Avenue getting to work Tuesday. I watched the second tower collapsed. My company thankfully did not lose anyone who worked at out offices in 5 World Trade. Sadly, I do know several people who are missing, and at this point, can only presume are dead. My emotions have wavered from stunned disbelief to incredible rage at what has occured. This tragedy has brought out the best in many many people, here in NY and around the world. The site of thousands of people lining up at the Javits Center to volunteer is something that show the best that people can be in times of great tragedy and need. Unfortunately, it is times like these that bring out the worst in a very small, sickening group of people. Thru last night, there have been 90 bomb threats phoned into police. Grand Central Terminal, my gateway home has been threatened (and evacuated) three times. People screaming FIRE in buildings. False reports of rescues are another heartwrenching act. And websites with lists that claim that missing people are alive are disgusting. Elvis was listed as a survivor on one site..... Need I say more. People who perpetrate these acts should also be prosecuted to the max!

    I am patiently awainting Bush's response, which I ardentlly feel will be swift and decisive. I do not want the government to rush to justice. I want to be sure we get the right people, and for the right reasons. Nuking Afganistan is not the answer. Those people already live like post-apocolyptic people. Taking it out on them will only make things work. It is the government, the decision makers responsible for assisting and supporting terrorist who we should be targeting and eliminating. This is what will take time, and I can't wait till it happens.

    Sorry for the rant. This is 3 days of emotional turmoil spilling out. As a New Yorker, and on behalf of New York, I'd like to thank all those on this wonderful site who have expressed their good thoughts, prayers and condolences.

    God bless us, everyone and God bless America!

    Received this via e-mail. Think it is very appropriate....

    Hit the buildings, Missed America

    An open letter to the terrorist:

    Well, you hit the World Trade Center, but you missed America.
    You hit the Pentagon, but you missed America.
    You used helpless American bodies, to take out other American bodies, but
    like a poor marksman, you STILL missed
    America.

    Why? Because of something you guys will never understand. America isn't
    about a building or two, not about financial centers, not about military
    centers, America isn't about a place, America isn't even about a bunch of
    bodies. America is about an IDEA. An idea, that you can go someplace where
    you can earn as much as you can figure out how
    to, live for the most part, like you envisioned living, and pursue
    Happiness. (No guarantees that you'll reach it, but you can sure try!) Go
    ahead and whine your terrorist whine, and chant your terrorist litany: "If
    you can not see my point, then feel my pain." This concept is
    alien to Americans.

    We live in a country where we don't have to see your point. But you're free
    to have one. We don't have to listen to your speech. But you're free to say
    one. Don't know where you got the strange idea that everyone has to agree
    with you. We don't agree with each other in this country, almost as a
    matter of pride. We're a collection of guys that don't agree, called
    States. We united our individual states to protect ourselves from tyranny
    in the world. Another idea, we made up on the spot. You CAN make it up as
    you go, when it's your country. If you're free enough. Yeah, we're fat,
    sloppy, easy-going goofs most of the time. That's an unfortunate image to
    project to the world, but it comes of feeling free and easy about the world
    you live in. It's unfortunate too, because people start to forget that when
    you attack Americans, they tend to fight like a cornered badger. The first
    we knew of the War of 1812, was when England burned Washington D.C. to the
    ground. Didn't turn out like England thought it was going to, and it's not
    going to turn out like you think, either. Sorry, but you're not the first
    bully on our shores, just the most recent. No Marquis of Queensbury rules
    for Americans, either. We were the FIRST and so far, only country in the
    world to use nuclear weapons in anger. Horrific idea, nowadays? News for
    you bucko, it was back then too, but we used it anyway. Only had two of them
    in the whole world and we used 'em both. Grandpa Jones worked on the
    Manhattan Project. Told me once, that right up until they threw the switch,
    the physicists were still arguing over whether the Uranium alone would
    fission, or whether it would start a fissioning chain reaction that would
    eat everything. But they threw the switch anyway, because we had a
    War to win.

    Does that tell you something about American Resolve?

    So who just declared War on us? It would be nice to point to some real
    estate, like the good old days. Unfortunately, we're probably at war with
    random camps, in far-flung places. Who think they're safe. Just like the
    Barbary Pirates did, IIRC. Better start sleeping with one eye open. There's
    a spirit that tends to take over people who come to this country, looking
    for opportunity, looking for liberty, looking for freedom. Even if they
    misuse it. The Marielistas that Castro emptied out of his prisons, were
    overjoyed to find out how much freedom
    there was. First thing they did when they hit our shores, was run out and
    buy guns. The ones that didn't end up dead, ended up in prisons. It was a
    big PITA then (especially in south Florida), but you're only the newest
    PITA, not the first. You guys seem to be incapable of understanding that we
    don't live in America, America lives in US! American Spirit is what it's
    called. And killing a few thousand of us, or a few million of us, won't
    change it. Most of the time, it's a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of Spirit.
    Until we're crossed in a cowardly manner, then it becomes an entirely
    different kind of Spirit. Wait until you see what we do with that Spirit,
    this time.

    Sleep tight, if you can. We're coming.

    Yeah, Jen told me about these two - she saw them first hand. Said the girl was topless when she drove past and they were both acting like a couple of idiots - holding up traffic. Now that I hear what they said, they ARE A COUPLE OF IDIOTS! They probably just came from their "I Hate Everything About America (Even Though I Live Here)" class at Metro. ;)

    In regards to the post saying that people were celebrating the destruction in the streets of Ann Arbor, I haven't seen any of that. Quite the opposite, if fact. On Tuesday night, U of M had a vigil which attracted almost all of the campus. It was amazing to see people coming from literally every corner of the city to attend this.

    peace

    Mike

    We went to Famous Sams tonight for happy hour. Just before 7pm the manager passed out candles to everyone and we walked outside for a moment of silence and a round of God Bless America. What a great feeling that was!

    Anyone remember which Charlie Daniels album the song "America" or "In America" is on?? I have wanted to hear that song since this started!
