Gents, a message to the listers in the USA.
I listened and watched with horror as the dreadful events unfolded this
afternoon (UK time). What happened was an assault on thinking, caring people
everywhere on this tiny planet. The targets were soft, undefended, wide
open. The weapons were aircraft full of totally innocent people going about
their everyday business.
The perpetrators of these unspeakably vile incidents are not acting on

this planet. Hatred for peace? Hatred for Trade? Hatred for Civilsation
perhaps. We can only hope that they will be found and the reasons for all
this exposed and understood so that future generations may grow up in
security, freedom and peace.
These events, though on another continent, were attacks on all of us.
Sorry for the off topic stuff.
