In a time of crisis do we run around aimlessly crying "the sky is falling, the sky is falling" ! or do we take a stand, say 'enough is enough', and claim back what is ours, take back our freedom, take back control.

Are we going to allow fear and loathing to control us, will we lie down like dogs and cower in the corner, tails between our legs ?!

The only way I see us winning this war, is by standing tall and saying 'heck no, I am not going to take no more', I am not going to cower in a corner, I am not going to stay away out of fear, be that from the mall, a movie, a ball game, or my job. If I have to die, then so be it, but I will not be cowed, I will not be broken, I will not succumb. I will get up and do my job, I will live my life, I will play my games, I will ride my bike, I will live my life, I will be a soldier in my own life, I will not abandon my post, I will not let my fellow citizens down.

The coming weeks and months are going to severely test us. We are going to have to steel ourselves, fight the insecurities, doubts and inner demons, and we will have to overcome and stand tall, I am not prepared to accept anything less.

Today, this weekend, let us remember those who have lost their lives, take time out with those we love, console those who have lost friends, family, those who are shaken and have lost confidence.

Next week ... we fight !

I just pray that the American public has the fortitude to stand tall while the military does what needs to be done. This thing will not be done with missiles and it will not be done in a week or month, it is going to be a struggle. We have to go in and take this guy out and everyone that stands with him.

My son is Army Airborne and he is living out of his duffel bag right now. When the retribution begins he is very likely to be one of the first to set foot on enemy soil.

Talked to him last night and his attitude, composure and confidence made me proud to be his dad and proud to be an American.


God Bless America!

Sr. - You are correct. The greatest weapon the U.S. has is our soldiers. May your son return home safely when this is finally over.

". . . next week we fight."

Who and where? So far we don't know who did it. Sure we have a pretty good idea, but no proof. Everyone is all hyped up to get retribution. The only thing revenge will accompish is to start WWIII, and that is what these terrorists want.

We need justice, not retaliation. And once we have proof, and I believe we will have proof soon, we need to rememeber that many of these terrorist groups and their leaders are spread all over the world. Some even in countries that in no way support them, some hiding in countries that are our allies, perhaps even in this country.

This is not going to be a war like any every before, unless we make it one. And I'm hoping we do not take that de-evolutionary step for civilization.

That's a hell of a statement. If you think because the media hasn't told you, or because the government hasn't told you, they don't know who it is and how we will retailiate, you are making a rather large and I believe incorrect, assumption.

We've known for years who finances, harbors and supports the terrorisum that has killed countless innocents. We now have a good enough excuse to go after all of them.

Talked to my brother-in-law this morning. F15 Avionics support. Got orders last night. Asked me not to say where, but he knows where he's going.

I was going to right a reply but it seems Okie has already written my post.

Thanks for stealing my words:)

No perhaps about it, they are here,have been here for along time and they will be dealt with along with the wannabe cells that spring up from them.

They will wish they were at ground zero in afganistran when they get caught here:p

This is a WAR!! To win we must all come together and fight. Freedem is not a right it is earned and we must all fight to perserve it. I will stand if or when called. Initl I am called I will do my best to help my fellow citizens and my countrys solders. God Bless them and America. We will not go quietly into the night.

As far as the troops being sent over to fight.....the Marines are already over there. Im joining in about 8 months and was talking to my recruiter the other day, and he said that they had already shipped alot of Marines out to "certain areas". So things are being taken care of I believe.

It seems you are reading between the lines and making a some assumptions yourself. What the Government knows but has not released yet is at this point irrellevent. My statement stands. WE, those of us here and the mass of uninformed people across the country have no proof. Yet WE are ready to blast the first person we can. Across this country Americans have already attacked innocent people that have lived in this country their whole lives, have nothing to do with these terrorists, just because they are of the Muslim faith and so is this radical a-hole. With what we do know about this clown I have absolutly no problem with taking him out. But without proof, to the general public and the world attacking him and the current regime harboring him, I am afraid just will start WWIII. Something I hope we can avoid. I grew up during Nam, the draft was over, but the conflict was not quite over when I enlisted. I now have a 13 year old son and it would be great if he could finish growing up without war being a daily occurance.
If done properly the rest of the world as a whole should back us, at least I hope they will. But make no mistake,back us or not, I beleive we have to reply to this attack once we know for sure, publicly, who to reply to.

Sr. KX,

Godspeed to your son, his comrades, and you and yours. I served 10 years and feel an emptyness at not being there now.

I have a 15 yr old and thank god he has asthma that will keep him home, at the same time, his frustration and anger tell me his generation does get it and will do what needs to be done.

We Fight ! - I was referring to us, the struggle we will have to go through within, to be brave, and strong and true. To be a 'soldier of one', within our own daily lives, not to back down, not to cower and take a whipping, but to stand tall.

Do it for yourself, your family, your country.

We are not all in the army, but we can be soldiers !
