Translation from Hebrew to English by me
In the city Beslan which is in Russia, where the slaughter at the school occured, there are fears the number of dead will reach 600. Hundreds of bodies have yet to be identified, dozens of them are still buried under the debris and 260 individuals are still reported missing.
Beslan should have a bigger impact than Madrid did.
I.e., How many public schools are there in the US?
the death toll just keeps rising, did they rescue anyone?
impact on whom, americans? I would estimate less then 2% of americans know the full story about what happened here.
600 !! Poor Kids May God have mercey on them.
How many schools in the United States open on Tuesday?
" Shut down our borders with military force.
Deport all illegal aliens.
Step up alien tracking.
Sweep the schools.
Make a secret list of "targets" that will be used in retribution. Announce that the list exists. "
Whoa ! I couldn't agree with you more . Mega dittos !
I think for the most part Americans know the horror of Beslan. What school principal or parent couldn't identify with what happened? Whether or not our political leaders have the stones to do anything to prevent something like it (or worse) from happening in the US is another issue.
holy smoke! aye carumba
After 9-11 we took out the Taliban in Afghanistan and Saddam in Iraq. Let's hope Russia takes out a couple of Muslim countries too. Iran and Syria would be nice.
I suggest we employ out-of-work Americans to build a wall along our southern border ... yep, 1,000 miles or more ...
make jobs, make America safer, cut down illegal immigration...
crazy? yes ... but one minute after the next major terrorist attack it won't look so crazy ...
now, about the northern border ...
Killing kids in the name of anything strikes a deep, deep chord in any person here or abroad. The national news has a hard time naming the "hostage takers" as ISLAMIC Terrorists that killed these kids in the name of ALLAH.
I'm afraid a massacre like Beslan would have to happen in this country and be proven due to porous borders before the pubbie pols would take a hint. There are too many deep-pocket contributors addicted to cheap labor.
Prayers for all of them and their families.
350 or so already dead, and 260 missing.
The numbers add up...
Out of a small town of 30,000, that's a large number to lose.
It's appalling that the US media has devoted so little time to this story.
Interesting how Al Qaida can collaborate with Chechen and other groups in the Caucuses, British(Robert Reid), Americans(Jose Padilla), but absolutely without certain would never collaborate in any way with Basque rebels.
Or so the media told us.
