Looks like things are happening rather quickly, part of a concerted attack. With the Russian and Chinese on a high state of alert lately, I find it hard to believe we didn't foresee something was up. With the world economies tanking maybe this is exactly what they are looking for, something to chrank up the war machine economy. Rally the troops they drew first blood!

God Bless you and all of the mena and women in our Armed Forces. May God watch over all of you.

I live a mile from Dover AFB and I would not be surprised if there is not a plane left there - the amount of air traffic I have heard this morning is un believable.

Again, God Bless you.

They got the trigger pulled anyway. If they violated airspace right after the WTC got hit, you're damn right I would.

Because of the proximity of National Airport, airliners overfly the area around the Pentagon almost constantly and at low altitudes. We're talking a few hundred feet on a regular basis. The only way those batteries would have done any good would have been for them to start blowing planes out of the sky regardless of percieved intent. I know that you weren't suggesting that they do that.

Now that all air traffic is supposed to be grounded, the military will be able to prevent further instances.

I'm a few miles away from Andrews AFB and I'm surprised that I'm not hearing much in the way of aircraft launching.
