It's now been 24 hours since the first attacks, and the shock is starting to fade away, being replaced quite nicely by anger. You might even call it rage ! I mean, how dare they !?! Who the @#$@ do these people think they're dealing with, here ? If it turns out to be a "Fundamentalist" group of some kind that did this, then I hope they're right with their God, 'cause they'll be meeting him shortly. We have a lot of internal problems in this country...racial tensions, religious differences, idealogical rifts between one political side and the other...just to name a few. But something like this brings us together in a way that NO nation, let alone a bunch of religious fanatics, can quite stand against. I had friends at the Pentagon. I haven't been able to get ahold of any of them. If this had happened three years ago, I'd have been there, working exactly one corridor away from where that plane hit. That is, if I was lucky enough not to have been fixing a computer in an office on that side of the building. The object of terrorism is to scare the victim into behaving in a certain manner that you wish. Scared ? Heck yeah. But if the animals responsible for this think that we'll roll over when something like this happens, they'll soon be wishing they'd thought this out a little further.
