It would have been far better for our world, if the attack had been from outer space. At least then all people of the world would be united, we would share a common enemy. It,s hard to beleive that there is anyone in our world, that would have enough hate, to commit such an unspeakable horror, on so many innocent people. God help us all to resolve our differences. B.B.

'Seed, I understand. Today is my husband's (and Wavestar's fater's) 50th birthday. I had no time to plan anything and now I am grateful for that. A party now would just be all wrong.

Also my son was down there just this weekend and thought to go to the towers, as he'd not been in a while...

I just pray for all those involved and hope we do not react wrongly. All these innocents hurt and killed, let us not hurt and kill more innocents. If only this would cause us to forswear all war, but it won't.

I am numb, and I'm afraid. God in whatever name you call him, help us all.

Today the world changed irrevokably.

More than Pearl Harbour, more than Hiroshima or Nagasaki or Dresden or Hamburg or Beirut, todays unconscionable atrocity will live in the annals of infamy for as long as our civilisation survives.

As a PR exercise for terrorists everywhere it was without equal. The images that were seared on the retinas of every viewer will have encouraged every tinpot retard with a "cause" to consider how he (or she) can make a similar impact. How can they ever be denied "the oxygen of publicity" when deeds such as these are perpetrated?

Any retaliation will only act as a catalyst to further terrorism, our world is too fragmented, and too many hold real or imagined grievances; too many believe that their cause is just and "God is on my side".

I was close to both the Baltic Exchange and Bishopsgate bombs in London. I know how scared and confused I was, and those were mere cap bombs by comparison to this.

I have worked in the City of London all my adult life, and I have friends and colleagues who work in New York's financial district. I have stood on the top of the WTC, and a painting of the Manhattan skyline hangs in my hallway.

This is beyond belief, and my heartfelt thoughts are with every victim, and every victim's family and friends.

May the final outcome be less dreadful than we all fear.

I can't see how it can be, though.

As I write, missles are falling in the capitol of Afghanistan. No mention of who's missles.

My first reaction to the news this morning, which I read on Mudcat, was the same reaction I had to the Challenger explosion: "Stop it - that's not funny." Then came the realisation that it's not some sick joke.

Forgive me for being disgusted by what I see as opportunistic political flames. I'd think the personal agendas of hate could wait until the bodies of the victims were cold. Then again, the missles sure didn't wait.

In Oregon, I didn't understand what had happened until 10:00am PST (3 hours earlier than the East Coast)--then, trying to get information was a bit difficult, NPR was available but I didn't see any video until I went into the treatment center where I work and saw a replay of the collapse of the 2nd tower.

Without trying to be catastrophic, I can only think that this event draws a line in the historical sand. At first, when I read the headlines on the NY Times website, I thought (in denial) that it was some sort of movie trailer, I couldn't comprehend it. I had to go pick up my car at the repair shop, in Portland, it's a gorgeous day, I felt as if I was memorizing every color of every leaf on every tree.

My fears are, of course, of US retailiation. I agree with Amos' description of the possible scenarios. The US was poised, it seems, for this to happen. I don't mean to minimize the destruction, death, and pain to all involved, I just think of the targets, the World Trade Center and the Pentagon--what they might symbolize to someone raised to hate the "West." Without knowing who the perpetrators are, I also fear that jingoism and the panic of misinformation, combined with a sense of blind outrage, will cause more pain, more death.

With profound sadness for all the losses we collectively are experiencing at this point in time, and with a deep belief and trust in the divinity of all life,

God, this is fucked up!! We watched a lot of it at work. A friend of mine has a tv in his office. I still can't fathom it. And to think of what's to come. The continued loss of life, the fear, the hatred....If we follow suit to go along with th Pearl Harbor analogy that keeps being repeated, it's going to horribly dangerous for people of Arab descent in this country. A couple of weeks ago, I was eating at restaurants in Middle Eastern neighborhoods on Chicago's North Side and treated quite nicely. Now these people might very well be treated like Asian-Americans during WWII. As I type, they are announcing explosions in Kabul, Afghanistan, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. Part of me isn't too upset about us (if it is us) attacking a likely responsible party, and part of me feels guilty about that part.

The 4th plane that landed in Western PA could have been intended to hit a few blocks from where I work. Bell-Telephone/Verizon here in Pittsburgh is a major hub of both phone and internet communications in this country.

I'm getting more upset as I write.
Will write more later.

To all Euro-catters,

Thanks for all for your thoughts, prayers and compassion.

This action is believed to potentially have more casualties than the total Americans lost in Viet Nam.

Over 150,000 visitors tyically visited the WTC every day. The buildings have a capacity of around 50,000.

This is not just a strike on "America", it's a cowardly attack on innocent American citizens. Many attitudes world wide will have been changed today on a myriad of issues. This day will be significant for the next 100 years.

The terrorists cared not whether the victims white or black, conservative or liberal. They have shown the American people the reality of a dangerous world and need to become a unified nation.

Afganistan being bombed?

Though not real religious....God help us.

Blood will be transferred to affected areas from all over the country, making blood supplies low for some period of time everywhere until they are made up. You can make a big impact by giving now, but if you cannot give now, it will still mean a lot of you can give later.

Please, if you are going to give blood, eat something first!

GIVE BLOOD! I gave today and the wait was not bad at all. Treatment was top notch. I was informed on a "normal" day the blood banks need 800 donors a day. 11 Sept. 2001 is far from normal. Please do what you can for our fellow Americans. I was so intrusive I went up to strangers and suggested they follow suit. I wish the responses were more positive.

Time for payback. Maybe we should get additional blood donations from the nations that support terrorism.

This is the first chance I've had of getting to the 'Cat since hearing the news.

Like everyone else I can only offer my heartfelt sympathy.

I also pray that the response from the US follows the Lockerbie model not that following the bombing of the US Embassies. Quite apart from the questionable morality of a military response I would suggest it would be unlikely to be of any paractical use. One would expect that any group with the sophistication to organise this attack will also have anticipated such a response and dispersed, probably prior to the attack.

Once again sympathy to all US 'catters.

My 18-year-old stepdaughter wrote this in response to today's events and asked me to share it with you.

911
by Emily Pennington, 2001

Words nor sayings ain't nothin'...
The world will continue frontin'
Sh*t, we livin' in our last days -
It don't matter what nobody says or will say.
Our destinies are chosen
Still we need to stay strong and keep focus
Regardless, life can be hard... Don't dare let that tear us apart.
Even though, every day we strive
Keep hope alive.
I beg of you - don't give up yet.
For one day, justice we shall get...
Faith may be the only true investment.
Motha' f*ckers ain't truly ready for this testin'...
But realize life is precious -
As much as lust bein' lucious...
Give up,
Then we're all stuck.
God's in control
So let life go on and roll.
Remember, play every dat
And never let a moment slip away....

*911*
God bless all of us...

Just one young person's view on things. For your consideration.

My thoughts and prayers are with all the victims - which probably means all of you in and from the United States. I am finding it almost impossible to grasp. Only by comparing the tragedy with natural disasters can I make sense of the scale. Making sense of people who would take innocent travellers and use them as a bomb to destroy even more people is not possible.

Again, my inadequate sympathy is with you.

Whoever did it also chose commercial airliners on their way to the west coast with large amounts of fuel in their tanks, which, I'm sure, contributed to the damage. Amazingly, they also chose planes with many less passengers than capacity.

Even spending all day here at Mudcat and on several news sites and listening to the radio and seeing photographs, it's still totally unreal. That this many innocent people could be killed to, what? Make a point? God help us ALL.

I hope that any response will be a reasoned one, and I believe it will be. I hope you are right Dicho. But the precedents on this kind of thing aren't too enouraging.

As for the WTC collapse - I'd suspect gas explosions and electrtrical explosions and so forth would be more likely than carefully coordinated secondary bombs planted. If whoever did it had the people and orgaisation in place for that, I'd have thought they'd have been more likely to target additional buildings.

The reason I say that is not because the technical ins-and-outs of it are what matter at this time. They are not. But there is a danger of exaggerating the powewr and ability to stroke of an invisible enemy, and that is a dangerous thing to do. It feeds into the kind of panic in which bad mistakes are made. I'm thinking of things like the internment camps for Japanese Americans in the wake of Pearl Harbour.

Well, this is rich.

I've been listening to NBC all day and it is there implicit editorial position that we had it coming to us.

More specifically, it is the new administration's fault for re-affirming our commitment to alliance with Israel.

Why it would not instead occur to them (NBC) to take this as affirmation that we have chosen our allies more correctly and that, by action, the Arabs have proven themselves to be no friend of ours is beyond me.

I have no problem with an Arabs as a race, as individuals, ethnically. I think racism is highly immoral. But if I had to fly somewhere tomorrow, and American or United Airlines offered a choice between non-smoking or Arab-free, I'd fly Arab free airlines.

'spaw. I read that book and know exactly what you are talking about. Also...for those who live in the UK, my hometown has a very large population of muslims and they are hard to comprehend. Their intepretations of the koran are even more subjective than many christian interpretation of the bible and they seem to take and twist God's words how they wish them to be. They have a fanaticism that I personally have always believed would be the cause of world war more than the soviet threat ever was. Now this does not mean that I believe that allo muslims are fundamentalist fanantics, buit they sure do breed more of them than most. the war in th Palestine is between Israel and the Palestinians, why the hell do we need to get involved?

They were sophisticated enought to synchronize the theft of four airlines, time their collisions with targets (except one) and fly them into buildings. They were quite sophisticated enough to assess the structural weaknesses of the WTC towers. I would hazard a guess that bomb-proofing was not part of the original specification for those towers, nor the budget. They were strong enough to stand comfortably for years in all kinds of whether. Maybe noone thought they would be military targets.
