i could see the towers from my window. i work in souther manhattan and me and my fellow union brothers and sisters have been givem emergency status. they put us on mandatory 12 hour shifts. i will go in tonight and begin fixing and rebuilding the communications systems on nyc. i urge all americans to boycott ALL stores or buisnesses run by pak or afgan people. like it or not these people are here and we must show them that they cannot take our freedom for granted! i pray to god that very soon they along with the rest of the world will soon watch the elimination of these two countries! if military volenteers are needed, i will be the first on on the beach! kill them all! until then i will do my job to bring the city of ny back.

GOD BLESS AMERICA AND AMERICANS!!

JOHN

We can't blame everyone for the actions of a few radicals.

Close this thread.

cant expect all to agree. p.s. just learned that there are people in new jersey and brooklyn out in the streets celebrating and cheering the actions of these individuals. but cant blame them, right? if you want to close the thread, do so. but you cant close the reality that terrorists do exist and some are living "free" in this country, training to fly, infilltrating the inner workings of our country.

we are all entittled to our opinions. ill consider this thread closed.

Yes, of course everyone is entitled to their opinions. That's what America is all about.

You might _consider_ that if you would like to separate yourself from "them". Them being the terrorist, not Americans who may believe in the religion of Islam, then you should recognize that as an American, you should stand by their side - not condone unjustified acts of violence.

Understand what I am saying here.

The terrorists have an ignorance that allows "them" to lump all of "us" Americans, in to one little bucket. The terrorist do this and believe that all Americans are guilty and therefore targets.

You just did the same. You just lumped all of them, in to one little bucket and jusified open acts of aggresion against "them".

I know you are angry as hell. We all are. Please consider these words and try to make others that may be reacting against the wrong people - that at difficult times, it might be tough as hell to be American. But we'll do it. If you really want to stand tall, stand by Americans, ALL OF THEM.

i find nothing wrong with the nation of islam directly. i do believe its wrong to take any religon to an extreme that requires or supports the notion of taking any lives. everyone loves to condemn the use of the words "us and them". "them" refers to the people who were involved or support the indivduals and their actions. "us" refers to those people directly affected by the actions of these individuals. victims, friends, family and colegues regardless of race color or creed respectively. mad as hell: i believe we all are,yes. i appologize to team camaro if i wronged anyone or any policy by posting this thread. team camaro has been a vital item to me for sometime. i respect all members immensely. the thread "america under attack" also in tech reflects the anger if other members.

appologies to all offended, john

Thats a pretty stupid thing to say, considering there is no such thing as an "american race"
America is full of people from many differnet cultures, and I think that if someone comes over from Afghanastan, England, Iraq, or wherever, and makes themselves a citizen, that they are American, and should be treated accordingly.
My grandparents were from Finland and Russia...so Iguess im not American then am I?

The true Americans are the native indians.

dont be so ignorant.

In times like this it is easy for people to say things that perhaps they do not mean. Everyone in America is saddened by the events of yesterday. We need to rise above the level of the terrorist and deal with this crisis in a civilized manner, otherwise we are no better than them. To judge people by their race or religion is not the American way and is not to be tolerated in our society. It is a very small percentage of the Islamic that condone killing in the name of Allah. Most Arab Americans are peace loving people who moved here to start a better life, just like our fore fathers did. We need to put faith in our Government, that they will deal appropriately with those responsible for these cowardly acts of terrorism. The last thing in the world we need to do is repeat the atrocities that our country put the Japanese Americans through during world war 2. Everyone should let their personal anger subside before prejudging others and making blanket racial statements.

My $.02

Scott.

I myself have nothing against anybody in this country who is trying to live the American way, Hell not many of us can claim to be native to this land. The only people who should be punished for this attack are those behind it and those countries who helped (financially or by hiding those responsible now or in the past should be held accountable.)

just my $.02

This is the first I've had a chance to look in today!! I do not condone John's boycot suggestions but I do understand his anger. There are folks dancing in AMERICAN streets over the atrosity has taken place. If I see it personally I may run them down in my truck!! There is no excuse for anyone celebrating the actions that have killed thousands. NONE!! Period!!!

Now for those that can't or won't take the time to read (Joshua) John apologized!! and more than once!!! Get on with it. I closed the last thread you started to be an instigator in.. I'll leave this one for now but your actions to start trouble here are not going un-noticed!

Please carry on like the gentlemen I know you to be.

actions to start trouble...no..im not trying to start trouble at all.
and the last thread was a joke!!!

I think u need to climb off that big horse dude.
If someone wants to say we should boycott certain stores, then that is dumb.
I didnt see anyone...

U know what, its a free country and I can say whatever I want..I dont need to explain myself to you.

that is what Tommy Brokaw said anyway.
