I'm a regular tub of forum sex.

Reports and video footage confirmed, the SECOND TOWER OF THE WTC has COLLAPSED. The first tower is still buckling. Pentagon and White house have also been attacked.

I'm scared, even though I'm in Canada.

This is how terrorism works. You can never be prepared for it. The main thing now is not losing calm, even though this is a disaster not seen since ww2 in the US. Frying a quarter-million ragheads will not work, then they'll come back and do something even worse next time.

I financially support the Interweb

I do support for satellite phones, and we're right now building a shit load of dispatch lines for the NYC police, and the military in that area. Basically, their land lines are kinda fucked, and we're creating a satellite based walkie-talkie system for them. Back to work.

Custom mediocre photoshoppery while-u-wait!

Got a plaintive request here... with all the major news sites clogged up, this GBS thread is giving me more news than any other conduit I have right now. Would it improve bandwidth, load times, etc., if people ONLY POST WITH NEWS AND UPDATES? As I'm writing this I'm sorta realizing that it's more a factor of how many users are logged in...not sure if it will make a diff, but let's at least try to disable sigs, eh?

US rocked by plane attacks

One of the towers has collapsed

Two planes have crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City while another - reportedly a Boeing airliner - has smashed into the Pentagon in Washington DC.

One of the towers of the World Trade Centre - one of the world's tallest buildings - has subsequently collapsed and the Pentagon is ablaze.

The White House, the Capitol and the Pentagon - the heart of the US military machine - are all reportedly being evacuated.


The Pentagon is the heart of America's defence machine

An early report said six people had been killed in the World Trade Center attack while hundreds were injured, but there are fears that the death toll could be far higher.

President George W Bush, speaking in Florida, described the World Trade Center incident "an apparent terrorist attack".

He said: "We will find those who committed this attack."

All flights within the US have been grounded.

New York police have been quoted as saying that both planes involved in the World Trade Center attack were hijacked from Boston.

A few minutes after the first tower was hit by a passenger plane, a second, similar plane was seen flying into the second tower. A huge explosion was seen.


Smoke from the World Trade Center could be seen for miles

Eyewitnesses say the first plane crashed into one of the towers after flying unusually low over Manhattan Island.

Briton James Winter, 30, living in an apartment close to the centre, said he was woken a huge bang at around 0800 local time.

"I was in bed and there was a huge explosion. The whole building rattled and shook," he said.

"I ran to the window and there was smoke billowing from the south side of one of the towers. Everyone in my building was panicking and running around."

About 40,000 people work inside the two-building centre, and more than 150,000 people enter the complex every day.

On 26 February, 1993, a terrorist bomb exploded in building number one's lower level.

Please protect me! The mods are BAN-CRAZY! WAH WAH WAH

With all major news websites down - even localized ones in Brazil - this thread is my main source of news.

I'm not American, I've never been to New York City, and yet I am frightened by this whole situation. If the world's most powerful nation could not prevent this, we are doomed. If they do nothing to retaliate, I fear more and more of this will happen.

I do agree, though, that American people should remain calm and not start any hate campaign against any country/race. The few are not the same as the whole.

This has got to be the worst, most well-planned and executed terrorist attack ever. I mean, I'm thinking this can't be real, all this bombing and planes hitting buildings within an hour of one another? Who has the resources to do this?

Shit, it just keeps getting worse. This really might start a war, they're talking about the Prez and Vice-prez being at a place from which they can orchestrate a war on CNN...

Living as we First Worlders have been living in relatively peaceful times, we are unaccustomed to reacting to war-level violence in our own backyards. Incapable of doing anything immediately but sitting and watching, we fall back upon fight-or-flight instincts. Here's a plan laid out by someone many centuries ago:

1) Aid those that are injured
2) Pray for those who have died
3) Feed those that are hungry
4) House those that are homeless
5) Cloth those that are naked
6) Spread love to those you meet by acting as an example to others

Remember, your fight is not against the bodies of those who do you harm, but against their ideas.

I'd like to point out that terrorist groups do not necessarily represent the countries they are based in. bombing the hell out of some country where a group is based is a foolish action and may even be what the groups want.

If (if) this is the works of some Palestinian group, they can kiss any peace deal goodbye forever. They would have lost any shred of sympathy for their cause and the world will pretty much let Sharon do what he wants to do.
