re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy You are wrong.What you have read from that web site expresses a bit biased/psychopath thoughts.And what I can see clearly that you are extremely biased too.You should read the book not stupid web pages. And I can say more more about what has been happened to innocent people in the MiddleEast for years and years !!!!!!!
We have been dealing with terrorism in our country for ages. But no any NATO country has taken any action at all. We lost more than 30000 people.
I am very sorry about what happened....

re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy Don't use these terrible moments to inflate xenophoby in the world, please... Be sad and angry, but don't be irrational.

Everyone who takes three pages out of any book can prove anything he wants.
Don't forget crusades (the Christian "Holy Wars" ) were fought by christians - based on what they believed was right (and in the Book ).

The Old Testament does contain what you could consider as Christian law, but we abandoned this - because society moved one. It took some time for this to happen; it also happened faster in some parts of the world than in other parts.

It's not about religion, it's mainly about fanatism. Don't become a fanatic yourself in making statements as the one in the subject line. That's what leads to the sad and inhumane killing of thousands of innocent people. Of whatever side, color, race, political view, or religion...

At least they have time to beg and make peace with their God, their families, the earth, whatever. The mums, dads and children of New York and Virginia had time to die horifically, and their survivors have time to live with the results forever.

No, God give you some common sense. The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki directly averted a long, drawn-out invasion by the U.S. that would have resulted in the deaths of many more Americans and Japanese. As for Iraq, Sadam Hussein had ample (more than ample) opportunity to pull out of Kuwait peacefully. The U.S. was extremely patient prior to the Gulf War and spelled out EXACTLY what the penalties would be for lack of necessary cooperation.

re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy Thanks for this reminder. I'd like to say you're breaking my heart, but my heart is already broken. Unfortunately, my sympathies are now reserved for my own until this thing is over.

Clue in, Mr. Heywood: some of us are at war. You're British, aren't you? You should know what that means.

re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy The destruction of just 3 buildings in racist and muderous country of USA is greater atrocity than killing half a million kids in Iraq.

1) It was more than three buildings.

2) The US led coalition didn't kill a half million anything, much less "kids".

/hope this helps

re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy The Miami Herald Published Wednesday, September 12, 2001

We'll go forward from this moment by Leonard Pitts

It's my job to have something to say.

They pay me to provide words that help make sense of that which troubles the American soul. But in this moment of airless shock when hot tears
sting disbelieving eyes, the only thing I can find to say, the only words that seem to fit, must be addressed to the unknown author of this

You monster. You beast. You unspeakable bastard.

What lesson did you hope to teach us by your coward's attack on our WorldTrade Center, our Pentagon, us? What was it you hoped we would learn?

Whatever it was, please know that you failed.

Did you want us to respect your cause? You just damned your cause.

Did you want to make us fear? You just steeled our resolve.

Did you want to tear us apart? You just brought us together.

Let me tell you about my people. We are a vast and quarrelsome family, a family rent by racial, social, political and class division, but a
family nonetheless. We're frivolous, yes, capable of expending tremendous emotional energy on pop cultural minutiae -- a singer's revealing dress, a ball team's misfortune, a cartoon mouse. We're wealthy, too, spoiled by the ready availability of trinkets and material goods, and maybe because of that, we walk through life with a certain sense of blithe entitlement.

We are fundamentally decent, though -- peace-loving and compassionate. We struggle to know the right thing and to do it. And we are, the
overwhelming majority of us, people of faith, believers in a just and loving God.

Some people -- you, perhaps -- think that any or all of this makes us weak. You're mistaken. We are not weak. Indeed, we are strong in ways that cannot be measured by arsenals.


Yes, we're in pain now. We are in mourning and we are in shock. We're still grappling with the unreality of the awful thing you did, still
working to make ourselves understand that this isn't a special effect from some Hollywood blockbuster, isn't the plot development from a Tom Clancy novel. Both in terms of the awful scope of their ambition and the probable final death toll, your attacks are likely to go down as the worst acts of terrorism in the history of the United States and, probably, the history of the world.

You've bloodied us as we have never been bloodied before. But there's a gulf of difference between making us bloody and making us fall. This is the lesson Japan was taught to its bitter sorrow the last time anyone hit us this hard, the last time anyone brought us such abrupt and monumental pain. When roused, we are righteous in our outrage, terrible in our force. When provoked by this level of barbarism, we will bear any
suffering, pay any cost, go to any length, in the pursuit of justice.

I tell you this without fear of contradiction. I know my people, as you, I think, do not. What I know reassures me. It also causes me to tremble
with dread of the future.

In the days to come, there will be recrimination and accusation, fingers pointing to determine whose failure allowed this to happen and what can
be done to prevent it from happening again. There will be heightened security, misguided talk of revoking basic freedoms. We'll go forward
from this moment sobered, chastened, sad. But determined, too. Unimaginably determined.


You see, the steel in us is not always readily apparent. That aspect of our character is seldom understood by people who don't know us well. On
this day, the family's bickering is put on hold.

As Americans we will weep, as Americans we will mourn, and as Americans, we will rise in defense of all that we cherish.

So I ask again: What was it you hoped to teach us? It occurs to me that maybe you just wanted us to know the depths of your hatred. If that's
the case, consider the message received. And take this message in exchange:

You don't know my people. You don't know what we're capable of. You don't know what you just started. But you're about to learn.

Umm, this would not be a great time to be threatening the US:

But the Taliban vowed revenge ``by other means'' should Washington attack, and their fundamentalist clerics used Friday prayers to call on the World's Muslims to unite against the United States.

``Oh Muslims of the world, we should unite together if the United States attacks us,'' one
cleric told the faithful at a Kabul mosque.

The theme was repeated across the capital.

``America has announced war against us for its enmity with Allah and for imposing its corrupt
ideology,'' said another sermon broadcast on loudspeakers.

``We won't die without His will so don't be frightened.''

I think the US is trying to use restraint but Kabul will not help its cause by taunting the US. Also, they are threatening Pakistan in the event they decide to cooperate with the United States.

re: Wall Street Aghast at Tragedy Peter,

Thank you for inserting this reminder into the void, even though it's likely that most are in such a state of anger and fear that they won't hear it.

I have only one thought for us -- and I do mean every frigging one of us around the globe, with families and short memories and survival instincts that haven't kept pace with our amazing and terrible technologies:

may god have mercy on us all
