Amen! They have awakened the sleeping giant!
TIME FOR SOME 10 MILLION CANDLEPOWER PAYBACK!!!
From the Associated Press:
Grand total 266 dead on the aircraft.
American Airlines Flight 11: A Boeing 767 en route from Boston to Los Angeles. The plane was carrying 81 passengers, nine flight attendants and two pilots. The location of the crash has not been determined.
American Airlines Flight 77: A Boeing 757 en route from Dulles Airport near Washington to Los Angeles. The plane was carrying 58 passengers, four flight attendants and two pilots. The location of the crash has not been determined.
United Airlines Flight 93: A Boeing 757, crashed southeast of Pittsburgh while en route from Newark, N.J. to San Francisco. The plane was carrying 38 passengers, two pilots and five flight attendants.
United Airlines Flight 175: A Boeing 767. The flight was bound from Boston to Los Angeles. It was carrying 56 passengers, two pilots and seven flight attendants. The airline would not say where the plane crashed.
I expect that every American airport will now look and operate like an Israeli airport. Bear in mind that about 50,000 people work in the World Trade Center and this happened in the middle of an ordinary day of business. Fortunately there was about a one-hour delay between the impacts and the collapse of the towers. A lot of the people in the towers probably got out alive.
At least 266 people died on the aircraft. A total of two United aircraft and two American Airlines aircraft have crashed, and all Freepers are encouraged to pray for the families of those killed and injured. Relief efforts, particularly donations of blood, deserve our immediate support.
It is possible that the losses at Pearl Harbor will pale in comparison to this unbelievably dastardly attack. Total killed at Pearl Harbor were 2,230. About 12 times that many were working in the WTC at the time of the attack.
One of the government spokesmen pointed out that all four flights were from the East Coast to California, and that "the bastards knew they would be loaded with fuel." NBC's Tim Russert is reporting from Washington that there is "unprecedented anger" in response to this attack, but they "don't know where or how to channel it." I anticipate that we will know very soon, and that our response will be devastating.
Bless and comfort all of those, who have been injured and killed in these many rounds of terrorist attacks upon Our Great Nation.
Comfort their families and friends...and Bless all of the Heroes that gave of themselves.....and those, who gave their lives, in trying to save others.
Bless and guide our nation's leaders to .exact the most deserved retaliation upon these EVIL COWARDS.
God Bless OUR UNITED STATES OF AMERICA...AND WE ARE STILL UNITED!!!
In Jesus Christ's name, I pray...
It is war to the knife now. We didn't start it but we must finish it.
A dark day for america.... now its time tim whoop some arse.

I figure we have about a week during which we can do pretty much anything we want, and our usual International Friends will keep their mouths shut. Even Putin sent a telegram to Bush, essentially telling him to go ahead and bomb whoever he needs to.
This would therefore be a good time to show our many friends throughout the Islamic world what the benefits are of harboring Bin Laden. I think the Taliban can serve as an example to others of how forgiving we can be when their "guest" sends his suicide squads out to act against us on behalf of Allah.
We probably also have some good bank records telling us who has been funding this guy. They should get a visit from the B-2's as well. And while we're at it, this provides an excellent excuse to turn Saddam's various palaces into pancakes. Maybe glass pancakes.
But (there is that but) who do we declare war against as some here suggest? Modern state isn't equipped to fight barbarians the way that the Roman empire fought them. Modern state wants to deal with another state, Geneva Convention, Marquis of Queensberry Rules, Miranda Rights, innocent until proven guilty, etc. We are fighting modern, highly mobile barbarians not necessarily associated or supported by any state. In fact it isn't unlikely they finance their activities through sales of that white nose powder to the Hollywood beautiful people. How to fight them?
I REFUSE to pass these kids! I say, if they flunk and don't graduate high school, SEND 'EM TO THE ARMY. President Bush, bring back military conscription to build our national defense and shape our youth.
My solemn prayers go to those who were harmed by todays events as well as their families. Keep the faith everyone. America is still the envy of the world and the land of FREEDOM!!
