re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy Here in Stockholm people are in shock and disbelief after this terrible acts of terrorism. America has a united world behind them in the search of the guilty perpetrators and their followers, and in the mourning of the victims.

re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy Dear LR Staff...

Light Reading has it's HQ in NY and I am sure that some of the staff have personal ties in the financial district. This is one case where a few articles with personal perspectives would be appropriate...

re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy Today, the sovereignty of the world's most powerful nation has been challenged.

Without freedom, employment has little meaning.

re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy "Don't go overboard?" You've got to be kidding!

"Of course in these charged environment I don't think the government has a choice but treat this like a act of war."

In what environment would we NOT treat this as an act of war?

"this will cause the economy to go down the drain."

FYI WW-2 is what pulled the US out of the great depression. But then, I guess you don't study US history in middle eastern universities, do you?

re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy America has no economical interest in the Israel-Palestenian conflict. Infact from the economic point of view it is better not to go to war b'cause of oil concerns. Ofcourse in these charged environment I don't think the government has a choice but treat this like a act of war. Unfortunately this will cause the economy to go down the drain. there are problems around the world (india-pakistan, ireland, Africa) similar to this and yet the government (correctly I would add) has only taken a passing interest in these as they don't have any economic significance and that is exactly the way it should be. don't throw a stone in crap as it will only spill on you!!!
just my opinion..

re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy in response to:

The U.S. needs to put a little bit more
foreign policy into its curriculums because it
is evident that they are contributing or ignoring
certain situations that are reaching a boiling point.

Terrorism is either an act of desperation,
insanity or anger. The U.S. has forced many other
countries and situations into all three.


you have lost your mind...what little of it you may have had! we get shit on constantly for assuming the role of "world police". now you suggest we don't do enough?

these people are so completely f*@*#ed to begin, the only thing they will understand is if we finally take the action we should have already taken, and eliminate them.

re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy not sure i understand your comments...are you suggesting we not respond? i think our interest is clear...we need to demonstrate that these acts will not be tolerated, and that there is a very heavy price to be paid by those responsible.

re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy "I guess you don't study US history in middle eastern universities, do you?"

This is not the kind of dialogue you should be
having.

First of all, using war as a way to break an
economic cycle and for that end is morally
bankrupt.

The U.S. needs to put a little bit more
foreign policy into its curriculums because it
is evident that they are contributing or ignoring
certain situations that are reaching a boiling point.

Terrorism is either an act of desperation,
insanity or anger. The U.S. has forced many other
countries and situations into all three.

The only way to have and open and free society in a globally connected world is to have as little conflict as possible or if any arises to resolve it.

The US is not a perfect, innocent benign
superpower... terrorism should never be used
in a civilized world, but we don't necessarily
behave civilly towards the rest of the world either.

Btw, I had family and friends in the WTC. Thankfully they all survived. The chaos, pain and anger we are experiencing here is felt by many people around the world who grieve with us. Yet how many of us grieve with the rest of the world when we contribute to their turnmoil and suffering while supporting our 'interests'.

re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy there was nothing in green's message to justify the swipe at all things middle eastern. in the emotion of the moment, lets not forget our values. the last worst terrorist was american. he got a soap opera sendoff from the media.

lets stand together against barbaric acts of madness. lets not give up our highest values. then the terrorists would truly succeed.
