This page is just moving. I guess all people aren't evil afterall.
(BTW, it's photos of people from over the world reacting to the WTC tragedy).
An Afghan-American Speaks:
"We come now to the question of bombing Afghanistan back to the Stone Age. Trouble is, that's been done. The Soviets took care of it already. Make the Afghans suffer? They're already suffering. Level their houses? Done. Turn their schools into piles of rubble? Done. Eradicate their hospitals? Done. Destroy their infrastructure? Cut them off from medicine and healthcare? Too late. Someone already did all that. New bombs would only stir the rubble of earlier bombs. Would they at least get the Taliban? Not likely. In today's Afghanistan, only the Taliban eat, only they have the means to move around. They'd slip away and hide."
Article about Big Brother
And, in other news, Big Brother participants aren't going to be informed about the WTC attacks. They are told it happened but not of the severity. So much for human compassion. Way to go network! You know, I hated that show before but I hate it even more now.
Happy Quote from article:
"It at first appeared that Monica's cousin, Tamitha Freeman, had been injured in New York but was fine. Now, she is listed among the several thousand World Trade Center workers still missing, and presumed dead, although it appears Monica has been told that she most likely can't be located due to downed phone lines."
Vets From Russia
I think many Americans are under the impression that a war with Afghanstan will be easy and that they are backwards hicks who will be easily overtaken. This is from a veteran of teh war between Afghanstan and Russia. About 40,000 Russians died in that war.
"If the Americans go to war, I pity those boys. And their mothers and sisters and brothers. It will be 10 times worse than Vietnam. Vietnam will be a picnic by comparison. Here they will get it in the teeth. Oh. They will get it good. Rockets won't save you: There's nothing out there to shoot at. Blast away years' worth of ammo. The mountains will survive anything."
And more on Afghanstan and how hard a battle it will be if we send ground trops in.
Read the Whole Deal
"The Taliban is estimated to have no more than 45,000 troops, including up to 12,000 foreign troops -- Pakistanis, Arabs, Uzbeks and others, according to most estimates. Pakistani military officials said they are uncertain how large an arsenal the Taliban has assembled but said the militia is armed with Soviet T-59 and T-55 tanks left over from the 1980s, as well as artillery guns, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, antiaircraft and antitank missiles, aging Soviet MIG and Sukoi fighter planes, mortars and thousands of small arms."
