Has anyone given thought to the staggering economic toll this is going to have, both on the US, and the entire world? These terrorrists have done far more than kill thousands of people. Think about it. There is not a single plane flying, or stock being traded on the Exchange. Some of the largest, most successful Financial companies in the world may have lost their best and brightest people in the towers. Banks are shut down. Sports teams aren't playing, so the people that make their living off of these things are making no money. The cost of the rescue, clean up, and possible rebuilding will be staggering. The cost of finding, and bringing the perpetrators to justice (if they live long enough to bring anywhere), and any neccessary military actions, will be huge. Families have lost fathers, mothers, children. I'll bet the cost of this goes into the hundreds of billions of dollars. These people have given this country, and the world, a terrible hurt, both on human terms, and in economic terms.
