I agree that they are all hero's.


I don't agree that the ones who did it are cowards however.


Just because someone does a despicable act, doesn't automatically make them a coward. And being "brave" is not always a noble act.


Now let's go find the real "coward" that sent others to do his work.

The optimistic side of me wants to believe they are keeping him alive for intelligence purposes and using him as a tool to ferret out others.

We held a memorial "service" at our flag pole at work this morning. I was unable to attend due to the nature of my work, but my thoughts are with all who perished and the survivors they left behind. I agree that the "coward" is the one who ordered this horrific act. I have my thoughts on why he hasen't been "caught" yet, but that would cause my post to be deleted

I agree the biggest coward was the one who sent the others to do his dirty work. However I will not yeild that the low lifes who took all those innocent people with them to prove some point is not cowardly. It is a hatred and an evil that I will never understand, but I will condone it for the rest of my days, and I will never forget!

I have that recorded, going to watch it tonight. Hopefully every American will never forget the ultimate sacrifice made by so many that day! We should never let our guard down again. May We irradicate every terrorist in the world. We must protect Our Country, regardless what it takes, and the hell with politically correct! Seven years later, We have someone by the name of barack hussein obama running for president, a muslim, and the friend of many radicals. There is definately something wrong with this picture. God Bless America!

I remember what a different pace things went at work that day. There was no hustle and bustle, just a "going through the motions" with an eye and ear on the TV and radio, even in lumber yards. All urgency of the normal work routine was gone, replaced by a shock and gloom so thick you could cut it.

Yes, there is something wrong with this picture.

But it isn't what you think.

What's really wrong is that so many people are still either naive....or just plain dumb.....about the fact that they are being manipulated.

BO is not a Muslim nor was Saddam Hussein responsible for 9-11.

Now repeat after me...........................

Nothing changed.

Powerful men have been duking it out with each other out of pride, lust, revenge, envy, greed, wrath and gluttony -- aka. control of the world's resources -- since the dawn of history, using the rest of us as cannon fodder.

Just one more chapter in an ongoing saga.

(but it has been awfully profitable to have Iraqi oil off the market)

Douglas Campbell, P.E.

1986 Isuzu P'up, 177,673.8 miles.
- Hella headlights (highly recommended)
- DOT C-2 back end (also recommended)
- R-12 air conditioner converted to R-406a. Saved ozone and money
- 4.1:1 final drive converted to 3.4:1. Quieter, better mileage but it's a good thing I live in the flat Midwest.
- 9/22/2007, age 21: Still running well when reluctantly sent away for reincarnation, due to body & frame rust.
- Never did get around to converting it to french-fry oil, which is why I originally stumbled upon this site.

They are building up the UAE to be the new financial captitol of the world.

Cheney is going to retire on one of those palm frawn islands there when he is all done.

He has to make sure that his retirement is going to be a peaceful and hence the reason to knock down Iraq.

Yes something is definatly wrong with this picture. What is wrong is the fact that you will apparently fall for anything, which makes you a fool.

As tough as you try to come across in your post, it showed your true colors, and that if it came down to it, you would not be able to defend yourself due to your own stupidity as evidenced by your post about 9/11 and Barrack Obama.
