Doomsday Ramblings

And, as Nostradamus said, the cities will burn. All I can say is wow. I'm shocked to tears. As I've been saying for almost on a year on this site people are horrible, vengeful, evil creatures. I despise being one of them. I would never bring a child into this awful, cruel world. If you don't already know, the Pentagon and the World Trade Center have been hit with a terrorist attack. The World Trade Center was toppled with two jets while the pentagon was hit with just one. Another hi-jacked plane crashed somewhere outside of Pitsburgh according to CNN.

It's being called the worst terrorist attack in US history. Even worse than Pearl Harbor. Will this mean war? I hope not. You'd think a species as "advanced" as humans claim to be would have moved beyond this stupid and pointless way to show "dominance". What was really the message in all this? What will be the point of the attacks that are surely going to follow? What would be the point of war? Is killing your enemy a little at a time really the way to spread your message? I guess this advanced species says yes. I say no. The attacks won't help the terrorist group that hides like a coward. Whoever did it didn't even have the balls to say "here I am". When they eventually do, everyone in the US won't hear them through the tears. They will just attack back out revenge, out of spite, out of hatred.

There is really nothing gained, just lost. Thousands of life, a national monument, a feeling of safety (and really, have we had that since the bombing in Oklahoma?). Mother's have lost children, children have lost mothers, husbands and wives are left alone, people have lost faith in the country's ability to protect us. I've heard "where was national intelligence?" all day on the news. I'd like to know that myself. Maybe they were in the pentagon and we won't have to worry about the anymore. It would be fitting for the people who were supposed to protect us from this sort of attack to be the targets, but as always it was the innocent. As always, we can hear national security making excuses for why this happened when they weren't looking. The nation has lost itself today and I am at a loss for words to express what this means to me, how this impacts me, how I feel.

Bush, however, is at no loss for words. What does Bush say? Freedom itself was attacked this morning and I assure you freedom will be defended. Make no mistake. The United States will hunt down and pursue those responsible for these cowardly actions. As always, he offers little comfort. As soon as he was elected my first thought was "He's going to make us go to war." Little did I know it would be within our own boundaries.

My heart and tears goes to all who were touched by the tragedy. It's a senseless loss. It's a senseless day in American history. We are indeed a nation lost.

"The sky will burn at forty-five degrees latitude,
Fire approaches the great new city
Immediately a huge, scattered flame leaps up
When they want to have verification from the Normans." -Nostradamus
