state dept in NY had car bomb exploded, I think i know how the towers collapse. The upper floors weight together with the antenna crushed the supporting floor and that below and below like a pack of cards. tragic as it is we are lucky they didn't crash sideways onto other buildings.

Alien, the facts remain to be determined, of course, but my strong guess is that this is NOT >>internal<< terrorism ... it's imported terrorism.

Whether internal or external, this country has a right and a >>duty<< to defend itself.

From BBC -- One of the planes that crashed into the building was American Airlines' Flight 11 from Boston to Los Angeles.

We are watching the news from Europe with tears in our eyes ...

Whatever scums did or ordered that awful crime don't deserve to be called human beings.

Tom, I didn't mean "internal" terrorism as in american terrorism. I meant "interior" terrorism. We don't need an umbrella. We need an X-Ray. How did the US airport security allow so many planes to be hijacked? Please don't ask for war. We do not know the consequences of retaliation. The enemy may not fight with missiles. They may, for example, release anthrax in a crowded major city, use sarin gas on a subway. The enemy is like cancer. We can't fight the internal (interior) enemy.

I just heard there is a plane enroute to DC that isn't controlled.

Unbelievably sad...

Fine, alien, then we should just, all of us, curl into a fetal ball and wait to be killed.

Do nothing? You've really got to be kidding.

Sadly, you aren't, just as those weren't who felt Hitler shouldn't be repulsed.

Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.

Turn off your television and curl, Alien.

Alien: what would you have us do? Say naughty boy, and put them in jail? I am not a right wing militarist nut, but this is just beyond acceptable!!! There has not been a crisis like this since Cuban missile crisis. I am sooo upset......remember the commentary when the Hindenburg went down???? Oh the humanity........ Judy

Really, let's not argue about whether or not this is going to start WWIII. Do we even know who is responsible for these attacks?

Fronm reuters:
"Saudi dissident osama bin laden warned three weeks ago that he and his followers would carry out an unprecedented attack on u.s. interests for its support of Israel, an Arab journalist with access to him said on Tudesday. Abedl-Bari Atwan, editor of the London-based al-Quds al Arabi newspaper said Islamic fundamentalists led by bin Laden was "almost certainly" behind the attack of the WTC in NYC"

I didn't vote for Bush, but at least the Republicans can be very nasty people capable of vengeful acts.

I am listening to NPR for more info. I have learned that the commercial plane headed to D.C (supposedly toward the white house)that is not in control will be shot down. It was a small commuter plane which crashed into the pentagon.
