Unbelievable and angry that such people can exist to cause such terror and distress. We've seen terrorism in the UK but not on this scale! From the ruins I hope even greater buildings will grow. God Bless those missing.

When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, the U.S. nuked two of their major cities. What happened on September 11 claimed more lives and caused more suffering than even what occurred in 1941. If the Japanese had to pay so severely for their stupid act, all of the middle east better be kissing their asses goodbye. YOU HAVE MERELY AWAKEN THE GIANT

If you want war with me, stand up. If you want a fight with me, face me. If you want my vengeance, slither you snake, we will find you. God bless those people that died on that fatefull day, God Bless them all. It is a sad day, but it is not then end for us, but for the snake that did this. We will avenge our dead.

So, you have wounded us and made us bleed some. You have taken our loved ones from us. We are laced with much sorrow for your deads. You smile, laugh and party at our pain. What is your gain? Do you think we will hide from your ignorance, I suggest you will pay a dear price. We are stronger now and united against you. Whatever sympathies we held for your cause is now surely dead. You use the riches, we gave you, to attack us. We will heal and face you, head on. You are a stench we have come to hate. Your are not worthy of the air you breath. Common decency is not near you. You are a coward of the lowest form. You want a fight with me? stand up! You want a war, stand on the field of battle! You are a coward of the lowest form. You have bitten us and we are awakened from our sleep. Be wise, we stand our guard, our children will fight yours and because we stand for clean and free we will survive over you. We will burn you in your own fire, of hell. You will be brought to a certain end by the forces of good. You are evil and without decency, you slithering snake. You are of the lowest form, worthless and filthy, and without help from the drangon of fire who is about to hunt you down and burn you about the head. We are united and decided. We are anhialation. You have made your sacrifices, now we make ours. Good bye mine enemy, goodbye, you cowardly hiding snake. A Citizen of The United States of America and friend of those lost on 9/11/2001.

What did America with all the natives - think about it! How many natives you killed? Just think about it!
A pragmatist · September 16, 2001 - 11:05 EST #9
Twain, Using acts from long ago as a shield to justify this tragic loss of life is idiocy. Times were different. There is no "manifest destiny" now; we look at the world in a different light.

moving the natives out west and going to war with them and locking them on reserves and such was wrong, however i don't understand how you can comprend to compare the deaths of people 175 years ago with what just happened, if you are going to do that, go back to what the british did to civilians during the revolutionary war or the slaughters of ancient Rome. What happened last tuesday was the worst single act catastrophe in United States history, and probably world history. The more i think about it, I think that whoever did this should not be killed, but endure punishment to worst degree possible, castrate him with a rusty spoon, break his fingers, and his toes, when they heal, pluck his fingernails everyday until the new wtc is built, and at that point, crusify him on the top as a symbol to what will happen to terrorists who ever try to mess with the western world.

I'm so sorry for the loss of life and a great American Icon. It's a tragic act of cowardness. I pray with you and wish you success in snuffing out the bastards resonsible, resonsible for over 5000 dead and missing. God Bless America!

please fight and kill those bastards, destroy their country, the same way the allied have destroyed the country i live in 60 years ago and killed the people who were not willing to fight fascism. they - my ancestors - simply didn't deserve any better. it's the same today with a lot of muslims. their religion is a brainwash. a guy, 24, from germany

America kills people for oil and now we die for oil. You greedy morons in the SUV's have our NYC blood on your hands! And just like we nuked innocent civilians in Japan, so shall we get nuked by our enemies. The monster we built and unleashed will come back to destroy us. Stop being so dumb America! Without real justice for everyone, none will be safe. You idiots waving the flag around make me sick.
Truth sayer · June 3, 2002 - 16:32 EST #16
Do you really think America is responsible for all justice in the world? And why do idiots like you think that nuking Japan was a bad thing? Like it or not, it stopped a war against fascists who had no qualm killing lots and lots of peole for their imperial ends - ask the Chinese. People like you give social politics a bad name. Appeasing these monstrous fascist mullahs is ten times worse than killing them and all of their families, if that is what it takes. So many more would die if not. You who have had freedom given to you and have never had to fight for anything in your life and presume it is a virtue make me sick.

Two wrongs do not make a right. Anybody who even considers war is just as stupid and idiotic as those terrorists. Look were war has got us in the past! Citizens of America and Afganistan need help not war

War is not the answer... just look at Israel and Palestine..... it never stops once it has started. Grab on to hate and that's all we are creating here... retaliation is impossible with the enemy called "terrorists"..... they have nothing to loose. How can you scare someone who is not affraid of death.... and actually sees it as some strange mark of honor. I am in love with someone in New York and I hope that the worst never comes about..but telling her to leave is like telling the rest of you that you cannot win this like we are trying to. And the worst of all things here is that people can rarely appreciate what we are actually talking about...war. It's easy to sit there and be a "Chicken Hawk" when you have never seen all the blood and guts of your friends splattered all over the ground like we are about to do yet again to someone else. Kill all the "it's".... kill all the "terrorists".... after we are done with Iraq.... who's next?..... Germany?... France?..... Saddam Hussin is a truely bad person but and should leave his post but I don't think he had anything to do with 9/11.... but all of you will gladly and blindly listen to whatever is pushed in your face to know that vengence is being carried out. There is no way to win here people. Not until you can let go of your blood lust and find a real solution to fix these problems. And you don't yet appreciate what this whole pre-emptive strike thing means. It means.... big brother has arrived. Mob psychology is where you all are being manipulated. But I wonder if it will seem so right when you get trampled by yourselves. I hope everything works out okay for you if you are in NYC.... but what are you going to say when or if.... you end up watching all your friends, family, and neighbors die.... right before you do if the worst happens..... would you say... kill the bastards that did this to me... or will you say..."Why did this happen?".... in either case...the questions that should have been asked will only be asked... when it is too late. Talk to a war veteran and you might be surprised how many of them are not so hot on killing everyone. We can't win this way.....WE WILL ALL LOSE!
Bake sale for the arab extremists · February 18, 2004 - 07:54 EST #19
I know what we should do to appease all of you who believe that war is not the answer and that we need to "help" these muslim extremists who have a false god based on a false past, with false FACTS... we should give our whole army little pink kitchen aprons and send them in the middle of millions of muslim extreamists who have no real foundation behind all of their hatred for the west, and have our army bake cookies for them while the extreamists are slaughtering them. Thats how we should help them.. lets bake them cookies. Good idea right? It is a plain hard fact that not only America is doing many things that God cannot stand and thus we get punished by those acts... but the whole world and the other countries are 10 times worse than America. They incite death on your children because their prophet muhammed in the koran says its a good thing for us to die if we are not converted to be a muslim. Is that what our real and Almighty God would have us do to them? NO! But in response to their sightless arrogant ignorant so called "justified" killings of Christians and those in America, if another 9-11 happens again on a larger scale.... WE WILL NUKE THEM TO OBLIVION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
