I've heard on CNN that all the Afgans over there are running and preparing for immenent US attack. I've heard people are digging ditches, etc, but I have bad news to bring to you all, it's not gonna help.
I fully support Bush on this. I know George Bush Sr. is going to give his son advice and guidance through this through his experience of Desert Storm. GWB has made it clear that the people who are responsible and their followers will pay for this.
So basically this means that we are planning to bomb the !@#$ out of Afganistan. And I'm damn glad it's happening. They deserve it, it's time to get rid of these damn morons. Laden is the prime suspect, the hijackers are linked to him, and I think he is the asshole who carried this plan out.
The Afganistan government says bin Laden is not responsible for these two reasons:
A. Bin Laden doesn't have pilots
B. There are no flight training facilities in Afganistan
Complete BS! He sent a bunch of idiots to the US to get flight training at US facilities! The FBI has already figured out numerous clues of all this, and it all relates to bin Laden. So, you might as well say goodbye to him, he's running, but I will bet my life that we find him. Laden is going to be with Allah soon, or somewhere else...
Now, I think many innocent women and children will be killed when we attack them and that is horrible, but this happened with NYC as well. How could people be so stupid as to carry out a plan like this against the US and get away with it? So, I would be running my ass off if I were anywhere in Afganistan. It's gonna happen, we know the Bushes here.
So, Afganistanians, you can run and you can hide, but it won't help, .................................sorry.
So, do you think that the US should bomb Afganistan?
I certainly think so, they asked for it, and now they're going to get it.

I don't think we should bomb the #@$#@ out of Afghanistan. We should target the terrorist organizations and the Taliban.
The terrorists responsible for these actions are no doubt already in hiding, so there is really no rush to retaliate. We should take our time to identify targets, and then engage in air strikes.
Basically, I feel we should seek to destroy the terrorist training camps and hunt down as many of the actual terrorists as possible. I also include the Taliban, not only because they apparently harbor many of these terrorists, but also because they are guilty of numerous human rights violations.
The Taliban deserve whatever comes to them. The vast majority of Afghani citizens do not, however. The sad thing about all these extremist governments is that they rule by fear and not by the consent of their people. The Taliban betrayed their people, promising to rebuild the country and instead implementing draconian laws, public executions, racketeering etc...etc... There is no doubt that many, if not most Afghans do not support the Taliban and do not condone the acts of terrorism against the US in any way.

I'm sure some have seen the little bumper sticker with the kid pissing on Ford/Chevy. Well I saw one with white shoe polish showing a kid pissing on Bin Laden. May Bin Laden live in fear for the rest of his life.

>>Bombstar, are you saying the people in NYC were asking to be attacked? I don't care what they think, it was their goverment that suppoted it, they should be blown up!
Don't comapre America to the terrorists! This country should never target innocent civilians. America is all about justice and respect of human life. We should never sink to the level of the criminals responsible for Tuesday's attack. I support a tough military response... but one that targets the government in Afganistan, not innocent civilians!
People like "I Like to Fly" and "Airbus380" make me want to throw up. They are just as bad as Bin Laden and McVeigh!

For all of you who are not old enough to remember, or didn't listen in history class, the targeting of civilians in times of war has taken place over the centuries and the US has been just as involved as every other country.
There's nothing to be ashamed about though.
Civilians and soldiers are the same when it comes to war.....only the clothes are different.
War is horrible......there is no such thing as a sanitized, clinical, precision guided war either.......which is exactly why the free nations of the world should retaliate in a manner that befits the original attack.
It's time America started acting like the most powerful nation of earth for a change too.......I for one can't wait to see the morning glow of the irradiated Afghani countryside after every single human being and building has been obliterated. But I doubt it will happen that way.

For people to go around calling for the devastation of an entire country is absolutely evil.
Bomb the fuck out of Afghanistan, and you are killing thousands of innocent people. The goat herders who are barely surviving on subsistence farming, the people in Kabul who are NOT followers of the Taliban, the people fighting against the Taliban who wish to bring peace, human rights and democracy to Afghanistan.
If this saturation bombing does occur, and the lives of innocent civilians are taken, please do not look at me for any sympathy when more American cities are bombed to kingdom come, because you will have it coming!!!
This will also place the American government right up there in the realm of the TERRORISTS!!!!!!!!!!! Although I am sure the "western" world will find some reason to let the American "terrorists" get away with it. I for one wouldn't....remember....terrorism is needing to be eradicated......not the lives of innocent civilians.
Also, may I ask, why the hell is it only when American lives are taken, that terrorism is all of a sudden needed to be eradicated? We have seen this scourge of humanity been taking place for the last few hundred years and America has done nothing about it in the past!!!
Am I angry about this terrible act last week? Bet your arse I am, but I am also angry about the attitudes of some of the (mostly) American people wishing for the lives of innocent people to be taken!!!

Yes, L-188. Like Juul asked....what is your point?
Our invokion of the ANZUS treaty is not unconditional either, neither should it be. We will require ALL intelligence data that has been amassed thus far before any action.
And don't get me wrong...if even so much as one American bomb deliberately targets innocent civilians, I will be the first to demand a withdrawal of Australian troops from this action. Furthermore, if Australia is attacked because of any deliberate killing of civilians, I will not hold those attackers responsible as much as what I will hold America responsible.

What were the people in the WTC and the Pentagon guilty of ? You make it sound like it's OK for the terorists to do what they did.
You imply that if we bomb Afghanistan/Bin Laden's suspected whereabouts/etc we are going to kill thousands of innocent people.
That's the beauty of war my friend....and why nobody should try to start one.....it's a horrible way to die. Aren't you disgusted by the very thought of it ?
Those people are who are responsible and the country that harbored them are about to find out the same thing as well.
The US should hunt down and murder in cold blood anybody involved with any act of terrorism against their country....just as the free world should start to do.....and we should not stop until the oceans are red with their blood.

You want to lower yourself to their level, then?
Of course the people in the WTC or the Pentagon were innocent, but that's hardly the point. If you do the same to them (supposing it WAS Bin Laden who's responsible) and kill ten thousands of civilians, you're just as bad as them! And that has nothing to do with the pursuit of justice. That is ugly revenge. Nothing noble about that!
I think the US should tread VERY carefully in response to this tragedy. Because there is no doubt in my mind that once the first bombs are dropped on Afghanistan, the terrorism will really erupt. Don't think for one second that Bin Laden doesn't have more terror waiting.
