Do you doubt that if they could, they would have killed 70,000?
--rough paraphrase of Tony Blair in the aftermath of 9-11, when the death
toll was being estimated at 7,000.
And .. what people don't realize is that the WTC houses approx 100,000 during a busy day - with meetings and conferences and all offices at capacity.
Plus - the goal was to have the buildings fall over and take several other buildings with it .. making the toll 150,000 or more.
The fact there were only 3000 killed at the WTC - that was just a plain old miracle.
I have never doubted for a moment that the terrorists would continue to target us. I just don't get why the liberals don't get it - because if it's just because it would make GW look good - then the liberals are much more petty than I ever knew.
