Then why don't they do their part and keep quiet with them?

That's something I've been wondering since this whole thing started. I wondered why the media broadcast where the Prez was during the whole crisis on 9/11.

caoilin good point, our media is giving terrorists new ideas for other terrorist attacks as well as reporting where all our high level officials are. we are our own worst enemy

here in tampa, our airborn refueling squad has just been called up for duty

Oh, and, Caoilin, the media just reports what people want to hear. its pretty obvious as to where Air Force One is when its landing path flies some 50ft over a neighborhood by a military base.

Ironically, the apocryphal story is that the pizza delivery places in DC and VA get mobbed with delivery orders to the Pentagon the night before a large operation.

I don't think this is the case right now.

i really hope that not only do we take out the extremists but completely wipe out all mulims from the face of the planet . Yeah yeah , i know its not right to say but face it . Most if not all mulims weather you like'm or not will be "ordered" to kill everyone that is a christin , American and or NON_MUSLIM . And i feel that the Taliban , who run Afghanisatn and have the support of ALL muslim groups on the planet are dead serious about the jihad on America and ANYONE who helps them . So without a dout i think we should be fair and export all muslims right the hell out of America , completely close our boarders and start the war after we bomb them for five to ten years , then start the ground troops . just my 2 cents - have a nice day if you can .

You know when to really get nervous: When "This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System..." is aired so often on TV and the radio, it actually enters MTV's TRL rotation.

Jonny, I would agree with you if all muslims were fanatical, but the truth is, they aren't
Just like I personally would do my part to eliminate all christians, IF they were all like fallwell, but they aren't

I will not call you racist, because in a way, I am a racist also. A bad experience with one or a few people, and it is normal for most people to become shy to others of that race/religon. An experience of this magnitude will undoubtedly bring about a response like this.

Everyone that has, or is about to flame Johny for his comment should remember that it is exactly the same reason that he has voiced this opinion, that we are about to go to war.
That said,
What the FARK are you thinking man?

Jonnykill:I am always glad to read a well thought out, intelligent post. Unfortunatly, yours was not one.
2001-09-20 09:12:59 PM  
hey, jonny is mad... beware jonny not only does non muslim have an underscore in it... "ordered" is in quotes... are they orders... or aren't they?
2001-09-20 09:28:05 PM  
are you guys trying to say that there are some muslims who don't support the taliban? next thing you'll be telling us that there are christians who don't support the pope!

and, yes. those afghani muslims who are fightng a civil war against the taliban right now are just pretending.

Wow, I am truly impressed. After reading the postings of comment on the other articles, I half expected a flamers paradise on Jonnykill.

Flame on, clap clap, Flame off, clap clap, The Flamer.

Instead the above Farkers calmly stated their disdain of the post and the responsible poster.

I, though, unlike the intelligent, considerate Farkers above , cannot resist the thrown gauntlet.

Jonnykill to you and your ilk that have: crashed cars into mosques, attacked women on their way to class, painted messages of hate on Muslims homes, pushed, tried to provoke, violated the human rights, spoken out to the genocide of other humans. Stop. Now.

When you do these things, say these things, yes, think these terrible things you violate all that is good, all that is human, all that is of grace. You walk in the shadow of evil against all of the ideals the United States of America was founded upon. I for one will not put up with it and I know MANY patriots who will raise up and stop you. We would fight to the death for you if your rights were violated, so do not preach for the extinction of an innocent fellow human soul. It will not be allowed.

"You walk in the shadow of evil against all of the ideals the United States of America was founded upon."

That there shoulda read, "were founded upon."

I ain't got a college edumacation, so sue me.

Actually, after re-reading it, I have no clue which is correct. My high school English teacher looked like Reba McIntyre, so I didn't look at my books much. Heh-heh.

Why are people so quick to say that it's only Muslims, or Palestinians.... Remember Timothy McVeigh? EH? He was farkin' AMERICAN. That's right, ANYBODY can do it. A-N-Y-B-O-D-Y. Regardless of race, colour, or creed. It just so happens, that this time we have a fairly good idea who did it. That's all. Put your predjudices against an entire race of people to a better use... aim it at the person(s) ultimately responsible for this attrocity.

Timothy McVeigh didn't have millions of followers ready to strap a bomb to their a$$ and blow up mom and pop at the mall.
