<P>you might not like my viewpoint but the are very much based upon true american principles , not overzealous emotions, the thing that make them so is the 1st ammedntmant which states freedom of speech shall not be  abdridged. YOu should read it someday when you calm down, it also say's something else that might have saved us all from this tragedy. the right to bear arms imagine if a majority of the peoples on the planes in question had not been robbed of the rights to defend themselve by our own gov which supposedly supports those rights... and who is to say we did not do it our selves( the gov) as an excuse to fight the war on drugs? after all the gov allready made one maniac to create the hydrogen bomb  and exposed thousands of american gi's to nuclear " test" blasts' on our own soil . kewl down smell the coffee i'm on your side. <BR><BR></P></DIV>

<DIV></DIV>> so it's not cowaardly when we attack a foreign country???? like we did in panama?what exactly is the act of a coward??? I though it was to run away from dangerous situations bravery is defined as the ability to know what is needed to be done then doing it... we neeed to be more carefull as to how we perceive this as well as to how we respond to it. actually we need to step back take a deep breath count to ten and then think about things for a few day's. remember that the media has it's own perogitave in how they spin this. this is not the most devastating disaster to ever to hit the us what about the great chicago fire started by the gangsterific mrs. oleary's cow, or the texas city explosion. nor is it amongst a handfull of incidentst that have plauged the us. there have been thousands of terrorist bombings on us soil the thing is for the most part they are entirely suppressed from the attention of the mainstrem media and the general p! opulations memory is entirely short term.... usually 2 to 3 years. as for as actual property damage there have been far worse things happen to the mainlaind us. don't believe all the hype we do'nt even know that it was definatly the act of a terrorist. I t could have been a group of mentaly defective peoples. it only takes a nut with a nife to take over an airplane. so don't allway's believe what you see on tv because if you notice sometimes the media will play games with your mind, as in what you see is not what they descrive as in they love to insult your intelligence in order to make a political statement no matter how absurd the statement might be compared to the actual reality they are relying on you forgetting what you see and remembering what they say after all they are "the experts" who are you to use your piddling little brain. e.com, trhanes@earthlink.net, twopilots2@mindspring.com, gg04@webtv.net, dachsie5@aol.com, shecow@yahoo.com, vicki507@h! otmail.com, quiltersbee@cuenet.com, balloondeco@balloonhq.com
