Both Towers have collapsed... carbomb at state department. Apparant helicopter crash at Pentagon. The fire thing. Streets being evacuated. Germwarfare labs on full alert.

First aircraft confirmed 747 American Airlines flight 11 from Boston to Los Angeles. I might have misheard some of the details on that but def American Airlines flight 11.

Another report of a 767 near Pittsburg.

Keep getting updates on this at work. All kinds of targets across the US are getting hit and no-one knows yet who is to blame.

I hope no-one does anything silly in retaliation until all the facts are known.

For those that know and care, Admiral lives and works in New York. He's ok though. I talked to him.

i would like to hope that the terrorists brought pilots with them, and they were the ones flying the plane. I would like to hope that when faced with a choice of undesireable ways to die, a US pilot would not willingly fly his plane into the trade center.


I also am very unclear on what the heck happened at the pentagon. I hear a bomb went off, i hear a smaller plane crashed into a corner of the building, i hear the same plane crashed onto a helipad, i hear a hilicopter blew up. if i can throw in my own disinformation, i am guessing they tried to crash a plane into it, but the pentagon is probably one of the most defended military instilations in the world, and we shot it down. and it crashed nearby. and we dont want to talk about it. maybe.

I've heard that more hijacked planes have been sighted heading for other significant targets. I also heard that there are fighter planes circling wachington, ready to shoot them (Presumably some of thm with passengers onboard?).

I'd hate to have the job of those pilots.

It certainly brings our little wargames into perspective=-(

*Dogscoff isn't far from several major military targets himself. (UK though)

It is horrible. I live about a mile from the WTC in New York, just across the river in Jersey. People are on the streets, everybody is talking and coming together in the face of disaster. I literally saw the second WTC tower collapse in front of my eyes. CNN reports people jumping off the building (110 stories) right before the collapse. All airports in the US are closed for the first time since WW II.
All phone circuits are overloaded. A buddy of mine works in the WTC, I sure hope he was no there this morning, I can't get through over the phone.
Primary suspect is the Osama bin Laden group at the moment.
Will keep you posted.

This brings into new light a comment from one of the original "band of brothers" that aired on HBO on Sunday. The intervieweee said that it is hard for modern day U.S. citizens to understand how they felt after Pearl Habor. Well, I fear the death toll will rise beyond 2,400 (Peal Harbor) today in the U.S. ..and words cannot express what I feel right now...

i would not be to concerned dogscoff, i have not heard any major religions refering to the UK as the 'great satan' lately, nor have i noticed any propensity to prefer military targets.

read this over at DSC first.. I can't get to any news sites, so I just hoped it was a real sick joke.

then I turned on the TV. Well, it's still really sick all right.
