Damn, I can't yet imagine N.Y, without the WTC...

Don't get me wrong, it's not like I only cared for the buildings I do feel deep grief for all the victims and their families.

Thats VERY understandable Jem, they were landmarks that were suppossed to be there FOREVER, and in a few tragic hours some *******s took them away....

Really, when I saw those two wonderful building (I really admired them) still standing after such explosion I felt kinda relieved, I said to myself:
"Geez thank God that second plane didn't hit the same tower the other one did or else it would have collapsed"

I thought those towers were gonna survive that they would turn the blazes off, save more people and fix that tower to finally say:
"Look at this, who ever is responsable, look! We built it back it's even better than before and No one will take it away from us, NO ONE so f*ck off!"

But those vision I had went away. When I saw the first building collapse I said to myself that it was still there that it only got some more damaged but sadly no. Then I started to find a kinda unconfortable relief, the one's you feel arn't worth it, due to the fact that the second tower still standed but...well evryone knows what happened...

I was and still am so horrified and shocked watching those great and unique building fall down. I still can't imagine seeing new york without the WTC.

I feel so disgusted even though I'm not American...

Those bastards took a huge bite off the the big apple and someone is going to make them spit it out!<font size=1>

The Palestinians were celebrating in the streets too. I cant believe he said he thought Bush was behind it, what an ass. I think the gene pool in that area could use some cleansing.

Lets just hope Bush keeps his bearings and acts rationally...and hopefully we can bring the fudgepacker to justice and not start a war in the process
Oh and Zargon..chill out..it was my fault for believing in the media to give me true info.

So would NATO would obviously get involved right? So this would mean that it is the beginning of WW3?

to think that anyone but a group of highly organized individuals could have done this is just dumb. sure, anybody can hijack a plane, but how many people do you know that can hijack five planes and get almost all of them to where they are going and coordinated within a given time frame? also, to hijack a plane you have to know how to FLY ONE.

how many people do you know who can fly a Boeing? and last, but most certainly not least, they kept it QUIET!!! we had absolutely no clue it was coming. no ordinary putz, or even a mediocre terrorist organization could have performed this act to the degree of "perfection" that it was. so therefore, logically, it had to be an experienced and very intelligent, and most likely large terrorist organization that committed this heinous crime.

I think you misundersttod me there. I was only saying that everyone is pointing the blame in all directions when no one really has any idea who was responsible.

I could get into a whole argument on it, but I don't want to in a thread like this.

I've narrowed it down to China or someone in the Middle East.

If we were under Nuclear Attack we would all be dead.

If someone wants War with us they want are land to.

There wont be a world war because no nation is going to stand with the 10,000 murdered civilians. Its just US and whoever is held responsible.

I could do it. They're very simple to control. There's a yoke that's not unlike a steering wheel that controls your left right motion. It pushes in and pulls out to control up down. You have two pedals that control the rudder. And you have the throttle quadrant. Child's play.
This was not nearly as complex as it seems. The TIMING is a bit hard to work out, but if you took your time going over flight times it would be easy to do.

yes, in theory i imagine you could do it, but if you were a terrorist organization, would you trust in someone who knew how to fly a Boeing in theory? i wouldn't...

It didn't matter if the terrorists knew how to fly. Crashing is easy.

Damn I though I would never would have to live through something like this. I'm both filled with rage and with sadness. Right now it doesn't matter if were're Democrats or Republicans or anything else. We're AMERICANS and we need to get through this together.

I just saw the first night view of N.Y. without its 2 great towers.
The feeling of something missing sickens me. You clearly notice the WTC lights are gone, it's as if a second moon that illuminated N.Y just vanished.

the only reason i mention flying is because yeah, crashing is easy, but you have to fly the plane to the building you want to crash it into first...

I heard on CNN that it doesn't take a rocket scientist to fly a plane when it is already in the air, people who never flew before could do it.
