I was listening to WIP, Philadelphia's sports talk on Tuesday as
I listened to Angelo Cataldi argue some points that the replacement
refs blew some big calls which led to the Rams winning the game.
Then, the talk was interupted by the news of an airplane crash
on the World Trade Center in New York City. I quickly turned off
my radio and turned on ABC. All everyone knew was that an major
airliner just crashed into the WTC. Nobody assumed that it was
just the beginning of a terrorist attack. Minutes later, as one
of the reporters was talking with the fire raging in the background
and then all the sudden, you see this image of what appeared to
be a second airplane crashing into the other tower of the WTC.
Most news reporters were shocked and then after a few minutes,
everyone figured out that this was no accident.
This was a deliberate attack on the United States of America by
some terrorist group(s) of unknown origin. Just a few minutes
later, we all watched the Pentagon on fire and I thought all
hell was coming. It turned out that another jet crashed into
the Pentagon. Later, we heard of another jetliner crashing
in rural Pennsylvania which was probally targeted somewhere
in Washington DC, most likely the White House or the US Capitol
Building. I was personally shocked of what was happening, but that
shock changed quickly to outrage and anger as I watched the
first tower of the WTC crash to the ground. Then the second one
We are at war now with these terrorists groups. And most proof
is pointing to a one Bin Laden who is holed up in Afghanistan.
Unlike the Persian Gulf War, where we let Saddam Hussein stay in
power, which was a mistake since he may have links to this attack,
WE need to do something decisively and this time to completion.
If it takes total destruction of both Afghanistan, Iraq and any
other country harboring these criminals with NO RESPECT for life,
then just do it. If any country should ever fire a nuclear, biological
or chemical bomb or missile in the United States, then immediate
action should take place from it's origin. That action should
NOT include chemical or biological, but a full nuclear retaliation.
That country should NOT exist no more.
Finally, to all the real heroes: all the people who parished, the people
who died in trying to help people escape, the people who escaped,
the people who escaped but are injured, those firefighters who both
helped and gave their lives, same could be said about the police
officers and EMT personel who also both helped and gave their lives and
finally to everyone who drove, walked, biked or simply made it to New
York City to help in the rescue efforts, "May Go Be With You". WE
Americans also are praying for everyone who was touched or effected
by the WTC collapse. Our President, George W. Bush, should do everything
in his power along with Congress should strike back at those responsible
for this attack. Please Pray For All Those Lost Souls.......
