    THis sure makes credit seem trivial right now. I hope that all of our friends here are accounted for.

    It is and it does.

    We are not accustomed to seeing such massive destruction and loss of live smeared all over our TV screens.

    I am pleased that our leaders are not hastening to lay blame on some group or other as they did in the early hours of the Oklahoma City bombing.

    Naturally they must speculate who might be responsible, but it speaks well of them that they are not over reacting as some have done in the past.

    America has already survived this horrible tragedy as we always have. All we have to do now is repair the damage to our city and our hearts and minds. None of that will come easily.

    THE TROUBLE IS...the news media has found, tried, and convicted the possible
    "RING LEADER"...

    Another thing we have to do now is ensure it doesn't happen again. Repair the damage, and America is still vulnerable to similar acts in the future.

    We will always be vulnerable to such attacks.

    No free nation can completely and totally guard against what some terrorist or terrorist group bent on murder and destruction might conceive of to kill, maim, murder and destroy.

    If we even tried we would no longer be a free nation because of the degree of security necessary to unconditionally guarantee that such atrocities could never happen again.

    Right now, until our government has had it's chance to come up with whatever it comes up with and do whatever it does, all we can do is to grieve, clean up the rubble, rebuild to whatever extent deemed desireable and go on with life and pray that it doesn't ever happen again.

    Personally, I am quite sure that it will. Some other terrorist, some other madman or madmen, some day, some time, some where terrorism will strike again and again.

    And we will survive.

    Unfortunately, I must agree with you, but I still have hope that humanity will someday find a way to love rather than hate. Some of the worse pictures I saw yesterday, were the celebrations of the destruction of human life.

    How can anyone have no valu for human life?

    I do not understand that at all. It is a concept that I simply cannot fathom myself, however I must accept the fact that there are quite obviously more than a few people in this world who have no problems understanding the concept and living with it in the course of their daily lives.

    As we look back throughout the history of mankind, it has always been so.

    I realize the tremendous number of people in the world that do not understand the concept, but it still hurts to see people celebrating our loss.

    In the Third World, life is cheap. People are fatalistic, but occasionally erupt in terrifying violence. Which makes them more fatalistic, which keeps them from improving their lives, which makes their lives continue to seem cheap, which facilitates more violence, which makes them more fatalistic...

    Americans and some Europeans, through a unique set of historical accidents, broke out of that cycle. Now the United Nations, the "multiculturalists," illegal immigrants, and occasional terrorist fanatics are trying, each in their own way, to make sure that America will never again be different from the rest of the world. Don't let them do it.

    It is not all of the third world. In my opinion this is mostly a religious thing. I am originally from a third world country, what has been done to the US would not be an option where I come from.

    As we all know, religion can be a good or a terrible thing.

    Religion has killed and maimed more people than any other force on earth.

    It like anything else can be abused
