You've all watched the events of today; I suspect the United States will officially declare a long overdue war again the people and countries who foster this kind of hidious crap.
Remembering I'm a Canadian, the US has had it's war(s) of independence; it's war between the North and South and a couple of hot air ballons by the Japanese in WWII. But this ..... this is no Timothy McVey. This was a declaration of war against one of the few countries who welcomes all.
God help us all.

I served my country proudly in war and saw the awful reality the comes with it. During that time I always thought of America as a safe place that was sheltered from the scenes that I wished I could forget. A lot has changed since then. The horror has come home. As surreal as this has been one thing shines through. It takes a lot more than this to bring us down. The pride of this nation is stronger than ever. Those responsible for this cowardly act will pay dearly. The people of this great country wouldn't have it any other way. My thoughts are with those who are still missing, to include my fellow law enforcement officers and rescue workers who have paid an ultimate price so that others may live. Stay strong. Do what you can to help. And most of all:
GOD BLESS AMERICA

Fred, I must agree that we, as a nation have for many years allowed our borders to be open to all, I also remember that people were interned in camps during a war that didn't (really) cross our borders, simply because their skin and stature were different. My hope is that our present government will deal with this current injustice in a swift and decisive manner, without involving this great nation and yours in a sustained conflict on other shores.
Isn't it wonderful, however, that we can all grab our rods and steal away to the sound of a river?
See you in a couple weeks, Bob
