When you're being attacked by the bad guys, you know you're on the right side.

Not again.

Precicely what is to be gotten from terrorist actions?

Fear?


If that's it, ok, I'm afraid. I'm afraid that innocent people will get butchered by cowards- too feeble to stand up and fight for what they believe in.

So, you terrorists out there- it's over, you win. You can stop it now. I'm nice and afraid for my kids, for my Mom, for my loved ones. If you wanna fight, a real fight, one with fists and knives, or maybe words, I'm game.

Anytime.

Your call. Enough of this pussy coward shit.

Cry

It's sad and tragic. Where does the madness end? I'm tempted to curse Arabs and Muslims, which is easy and provides an instant sense of satisfaction of blaming "them." But, there are many extreme elements hanging on the fringes of ideals -- Christianity, anti abortionists, anti government. They're all parasites and destructive. My thoughts and prayers go out tonight to those and the families of those senselessly killed and hurt in today's latest act of cowardice.

I'm fine, bike hurting a bit...and I was leaving for Alaska today

Ouch. Hope your alright.
I almost got wiped off the road by some Pacifist Norwester in his shiny new Prius with all his "enviro-aware" stickers drinking his starbux... how about bike awareness??



From what I have heard all my UK relatives are good too. Im not sure what whoever did this is thinking but I think they just stirred the hornet's nest.... People forget that when Britain is attacked it pretty much brings Australia (fight?!?! Where?!?! ), New Zealand (No, we are NOT a province of Australia.. ), Canada (Can't we all just get along? ) and a host of other nations into the throwdown. Gutless, backhanded attacks are the only way terrorists are even going to do any damage to such a grouping. Couple that with the USA and its only a matter of time.....

Hopefully one day we all be able to deal with each other on this tiny planet... Probably not in my lifetime tho...

There are many weird freaks out there, but you cannot deny the arab muslims fringe is the only fringe killing people in the thousands across the globe these days.

And the people best situated to fight it and stop it are the sane muslim arabs around the world who live in the same communities. It's just simple fact.

Too bad you see little happening in that regard, and more excuses and defending them in the arab world, ala Al Jazeera et al.
