Reading through the posts in the last few days I've seen quite a lot of abuse handed out to poor Mr Bush and his org. First off I would have to say I disagree with a lot of the criticism. I was however up until the last few days a Bush Basher like many because I did'nt like a lot of what he has been doing. In the circumstance in which unfortunately he finds himself now, I must admit that I have grown a powerful amount of admiration for his org. in his handling of this whole affair. Especially for the following reasons:
In fairness to them so far I think they have taken all reasonable steps towards getting justice. I personally don't see them taking a massive air strike on Afghan, I believe they will only bomb obviousligitimate targets where there should be no civilians, like military camps etc. I don't think they will hit bridges roads etc. I hope that only those military targets will be hit and then a major infiltration of ground troops to root them out. This I believe is an acceptable way of trying to bring these terrorists to justice. Innocent lives may die, but this is war and it may happen. To compare this to loosing lives in the US is nonsense, as the perpetrators of that crime intentioned the death of innocent lives. Innocent lives will be lost, but hopefully not on purpose and not by absolute negligence on part of the armies. Remember this is been done in the name of whats good and decent in our world to day. If one person here can say they would prefer to die at the hands of terrorists than hunt them down, at the expense of perhaps killing some innocents, then please step forward. The US and other nations must do what they have to, to ensure the security of their people. It is up to us to ensure they do this in a justifiable manner. I hope the catch the terrorist alive so that they can rot in a US prision. I think the shame of this would be worse than death for these people. However this is all probably too unlikely.
On another note. Yis know the way all the mad stories start to pop up out of the woodwork. Well heres one or two. I would post a url but some people may not appreciate this stuff and I don't want to offend any one. One of the stories is related to a band called "coup" who realesed an album cover about 3 months ago which was band from many sites. This cover has its own depiction of the twin towers in flames. If you look around the internet for the band name you should find a picture of this cover.
The other story was about two pictures taken of the burning building which showed the smoke had taken the figure of a demons head as it rose from the buildings. One of the pictures was taken by CNN and I don't know who's the other was by. Once again if yis search the internet yis will get the info if yis are interested.
Once again I would like to offer my sincere condolences to those who are suffering from this horrible tragedy and may god bless you all.
