This stuff has been on my mind alot. I don't really know how to express my feelings
on all of this. My heart goes out to anyone who has lost loved ones. This kind of stuff
wasn't supposed to happen here. I don't even know when I will be able to absorb or
fathom all of it. An ABC show for kids today put it best, there is no wrong way to feel
about this.

I heard some airplanes today. It was really bizarre to think planes weren't flying for so long.
One of the planes I saw was a really low flying Navy P-3 Orion. I noticed how I am
looking at things and watching things differently in general. I don't think I will ever seen
a plane and not think of it has some kind of missile from now on. I think we have
to do something ,like Israel. We haveto assume this can never be wiped out and take step
to try to catch these people and stop them before it happens. I think it's a great
idea to unite the world against terrorism. I think that is possible.

The FBI is following all these leads and everything is pointing back to Bin Laden.
There is talk about an ongoing war on terrorism. We have to strike and strike hard.
The big problem is how or what the hell are we suppose to do? The last thing we want
to do is something to make even more people want to sign up to be martyrs.

People have however been talking about ground troops? I just don't understand how
and where that would happen. There are a lot of individuals in the world who hate the west and
are willing to die. US troops in Saudi Arabia were bombed, I doubt any troops would be
safe in a county like Pakistan.

A Few Randoms thoughts.
Afghanistan has fought wars for hundreds of year.

The Soviets couldn't win a ground war there in part due to the training
of the Mujahideen by Pakistan and the CIA.
Those people who were trained of course are now international terrorists.

Pakistan and India are both Nuclear Powers.

I just got this update from Annanova, I would take it with a grain of salt.
Pakistan Newspaper Story - US special forces 'land in Pakistan'

Frankenstein the CIA created
American officials estimate that, from 1985 to 1992, 12,500 foreigners were trained in bomb-making,
sabotage and urban guerrilla warfare in Afghan camps the CIA helped to set up.
Since the fall of the Soviet puppet government in 1992, another 2,500 are believed to have passed through the camps.
