Give me some fucking info, people. A 757 crashed into one of the world trade towers and one fell after an explosion. Another plane crashed into the Pentagon. White House had several bomb threats. Go. Now.

It was actually a 767 that was hijacked from Logan Airport here where I am in Boston. And my mom just called me and told me that there was another incident in western Pennsylvania...

WHY THE FUCK WOULD ANYONE DO THAT?!?

Any smarmy comments and I'll kick your arse.

But seriously, I can't see how it could be possible to do something on this scale and have it being pulled off. I'm just speechless.

I woke up with my mom crying...turning on CNN, and seeing live coverage of the second of the towers just collapsing. I don't know much what to say right now, just hoping for the best, and that this is...solved.

There was a plane, 767 or possibly a 747 that crashed in Sumerset PA, like 5 miles from Pittsburgh. I guess that wasn't supposed to be an attack on Pittsburgh, but a boched hijack that was heading down to NY. Hope that clears anything you didn't know up for you, Jump.

Edit: A few corrections, one, I think they said it was a 757. It's "Somerset", not "Sumerset". And apparantly it wasn't 5 miles from Pittsburgh, though CNN did say that.

I walked into the computer lab for TA hours and a friend told me that the World Trade Center had been destroyed and the Pentagon hit.

Wow.

Coordinated hijackings... this is certainly a historical milestone, folks.

I am very curious as to how this turns out.

I also wonder exactly who's responsible. It's probably the predictable choices, as they have lots of reasons to be pissed at the US right now, as well as an urge to bring loss to US soil.

Wacked.

But really, something must be done about it, they can't just be left to get away with it.

There are FOUR commercial planes lost over the US at the minute. This might not be the end...

......... i heard about it on CNN at school, shit, whats gonna happen, next? I live in DC, and it was damn scaarey to see that.

I just hope Dubya keeps to his words.

Its Bin'Laden, everybody is 98% sure, but theres just no fucking proof.

This is a rumor, but I heard the pentagon had the only anthrax virus, but this isnt from a reliable source.

FUCK THE PEOPLE WHO HAS DONE THIS!

Theres only so much we dont know, i just wonder if theyll ever rebuild the towers again

Scary thought:
"Taliban Rules Out Bin Laden in U.S. Attacks: Afghanistan's ruling movement says the terrorist leader "does not have the capability" for such an attack"

If not him (we have no PROOF of who, don't go name calling), who has the resources to pull this out? My gut feeling is that this is in house. Before we start blaming those outside the US, look in the US. This attack was very coordinated, damn well executed... scary.

If we start retaliating (and blaming) without evidence, we are just as bad as those that did this.

IN a way, its payback tho, we dont hear about it, but Bush constantly bombs Iraq. We aren't the only victims, and this bombing was a way of telling the US the pain the Mid East went through.

As for within the US, I doubt that. I remeber hearing that Osama was planning something. Oh well, best thing is to watch the news

It was only a matter of time until the terrorists got it right. This isn't the first time they tried to bring down the trade center buildings and whatnot, if I remember this correctly, a few years back they planted a bomb in the basement of one of the buildings in. They hoped the explosion would topple over both of the trade towers. Before now we just got lucky, this time we got hit hard. I just hope we find the ones responsible and punish them accordingly.

What shocks me is the mode of destruction. All previous attacks around the world(foreign and domestic) have been car bomb related.

This attack used coordinated hijacking of 4 commercial airlines and a coordinated strike of 3 of 4 hijacked airlines.

Quesion: How many people does it take to hijack a plane and fly it into your desired targets?

Resources of the attack and method of attack is key. I figure you need at least 4-5 hijackers each plane. Definite suicide run. This attack is just so different from the car bomb method. A murderer usually has a preferred method of killing. Can the previous groups go from car bomb to hijacking 4 (four!) commercial airlines. That's why I think it's in house. Airports are already prejudice as it is; I figure if the perps looked "in house," security would have been lax and overlooked them.

Compare:
Car bomb: 1-4 people, no suicide, drop and run
Hijack 4(four!) plane AND strike: 4-5 at LEAST each plane. One would have to know something about flying planes

The two methods are just so different that it seems like much of jump from one method to another.

Don't be an idiot, MK.

Blasting away the people who did this, won't solve anything. This is (probably) the work of some extremist force, not a whole country. Taking innocent lives wouldn't exactly make things better.

I thought it could be someone within the U.S. I've also heard that the army is experimenting with the Anthrax virus (I saw it in school today, on a newsletter they recieve via fax every day), and with all the other shit they've been hiding, why not? I don't see a reason though.

Right now, people need to take it really slow. One false move, and we have the third world war. I'm not kidding, I seriously worry about this.

M2sama, did Nostradamus really predict that? I know the first thing I thought was "Nostradamus predicted something like this..." and I was going to borrow a book with his profecies (sp?) but I never did.

The third world war. Shit. I thought I shouldn't live to see that.

This is un-fucking-believable. And how ironic that, in our technologically advanced age of science and information, the attack wasn't germ warfare, or an intricately built bomb, or computer hackers destroying or stealing classified info, but a simple plane hijacking. That is *so* 30 years ago. But damn, it worked. Fuck. All the security guards in the world can't keep some psycho from crashing a plane into the building.

And to make matters worse, the local news station showed people in Pakistan actually CELEBRATING! They were dancing around and burning flags and handing out candy and shit. God damn.

I sincerely hope we find the sick fucks behind this whole mess.

And while we're on the subject, I'm not sure if we have any Azurians living in NY or DC, but if so...are you still with us?

Well, it has been an interesting past five hours for me as I sit here, typing in my little safe haven school. I had to run home after first period. I was panicking. I have friends and family in New York, some of which I know work in the financial district. I was pleased to see I was wrong. Here's a little summary of events.

8:45 A Boeing 767 with 90 passengers crashes into the North World Trade Centre Tower. Merely minutes later, another one crashes into the South building. Around 10:00, another passenger plane flies into the west wing of the Pentagon. Around 10:30, another plane goes down outside fo Pittsurgh. By 11:00, the first of the two towers collapsed. The second one collapsed 18 minutes following.

Nothing more majr has happened, just a bunch of statements by government and military officials and a whole bunch of warnings to stay the hell away from Manhattan.

In Toronto, seeing as to how it is the closest big foreign city, I've heard some really interesting stuff myself on the Canadian perspective. Prime Minister Jean Cretien released a statement, as has Premier Mike Harris. I heard Mayor Mel Lastman tell the city of Toronto to remain calm and the situation is completely under control. Most of the business district (Bay Street, Front Street and King Street) have been evacuated. The CN Tower has been closed for the day. Most government offices have been closed down. In the airport situation, Dorval in Montreal has been closed down as has Ottawa International. Pearson Internatoinal in Toronto is closed to outgoing flights entirely, as are all flights in North America. Most Canadian airports are accepting flights that were supposed to go into the states from Europe and Asia and the like.

CNN has been going nuts. CBS, NBC, and ABC have all been flooded. Even TBS has turned into a news station. CBC, CTV, CityTV in Canada have all diverted all shows to news. Of all stations in Toronto, 92.5 had the most thorough coverage, and they are the worst station in the city IMHO.

Hospital situations are overflowing. Over 50 hospitals in New York are being completey run over with patients. Over 100 hospitals surrounding the city have the same problem. Toronto's Sunnyrook Hospital is now ready and willing to accept patients, as are most hospitals in Toronto. (Sunnybrook is the medical hub of Toronto.) Blood levels are virtually depleted. People need to get out and give blood, right away. If they have any fears about giving blood, now's the time to forget those fears. Emergency services from all surrounding states have sent nearly their entire forces to New York City.

The death and destruction is innumerable. Over 50,000 deaths in New York City alone are estimated, based on the statistics of tourists and people that work in the WTC.

The scene looks like a volcano erupted in the middle of NYC, spewing volcanic ash in all directions. CNN got a video of the second plane that crashed into the second building and the implosion of the buildings.

Communications in and out of the states have been completely crippled. I couldn't get a hold of my cousins in Plainview, a suburb of NYC nor could I get a hold of a friend in Miami Beach, Florida. Federal buldings, tourist attractions, and virtually everything else in Washington have been closed down. Major internet sites, such as MSNBC and CNN were closed down from an incredible amount of pings because of everyone trying to figure out what the hell happened.

During the morning announcements at Thornhill Secondary, our principal told us that something happened in NYC, but none of us expected this. I turned on my radio and started to freak out. I frantically made phone calls to my parents at their work numbers. I felt it was necessary t run home to watch on TV what happened, seeing as to how the radio was not doing me any justice, nor was the net.

All around the world, prayers have been flowing out of institutions, religious or secular. The response time, let alone the emotional response to this disaster has been incredible.

I hope that the western world can survive through this.

I am usually level headed. This is really just another Pearl Harbor attack. We didn't see it coming, or somethin, and many innocent (possibly thousands) died today. It's sad really. And I know that it would seem that killing dudes in another country wouldn't make it better, but, I say they deserve to die. It would at least make ME feel better...

I guess I maybe never realized how much I care about America, but, this really does upset me or somethin. We will strike back, the way the Prez spoke I feel that we are gonna send some bombs somebody's way...

Sure thousands are dead/injured, but it's not like it hasn't happened before. I'm just wondering why they haven't destroyed the UN Headquarters yet.

Mick, don't try and call them. Aliant (the phone guys out here), says that their system is stressed to massive levels due to people trying to find out about their relatives.

They said "don't use cellular, long-distance, or Internet access".

Also, who heard about the passenger on the Pittsburgh plane with the cell phone? Apparently, he was able to keep the people at Ground Control abreast of their situation up to just about when the plane crashed.

M2sama, did Nostradamus really predict that? I know the first thing I thought was "Nostradamus predicted something like this..." and I was going to borrow a book with his profecies (sp?) but I never did.

The third world war. Shit. I thought I shouldn't live to see that.


You don't get it because you don't live here. I have numerous friends that I used to live by that are all dead in Penslivania. YOu don't feel the pain that we do. I hope America fucks up whoever is responceble.

ET was at the WTC this weekend...

I hope all his friends are okay. I wouldn't wish what happened on my Stepdad. Fuck.

I pray everything turns out. I'm ready to go to the fucking mideast if I have to. Urgg.

MK: Unless you're willing to get your ass over there yourself with a gun and die for the right to kick Mideastern ass, don't talk out your ass.

Those of you who are filed with selective service, be prepared. As MewtwoSama said, you might have to go to war soon. Those of you who intend to dodge the draft, make you move soon. :/

Sama started what I was thinking of...

Nostradamus predicted something similar to this. Two brothers (towers) destroyed on a giant island (island = Manhattan), and a man wearing a turban is responsible. (man = Bin'Laden)

Scary shit, really.

It's surprising how naive us Americans can be... doubting something like this could happen.

Like many a news crew said, the terrorists had to be damn smart to pull something like this off, with American planes no less.

This really sucks.

And then we have the freaking news crew geniuses proclaiming the position of where G Dubbya will be staying for safety.

Just shut the frik up.

This sucks.

EDIT: i speeld smoetihng rong.

EDIT2: Motherfucker... now another building is going to collapse. One of the support buildings around the late-World Trade Center. Gaaaah.

Wow, the Twin Towers blowed up. It was an odd day today in school. Everyone was like "OMG Ian Garvey blew up the World Trade Center" and I was like "WTF?" so I decided to go and figure out what was going on.

The TVs are dead. Some people were saying that since most stations were broadcasting from the WTC, their channels would be dead. But later on it is found out that the school has cut the TV.

I go on to find a computer. The Interweb has been shut down for repairs.

"Hmm, I find it odd that I cannot get any information whatsoever on this most pressing matter."

Two of my friends show up.
"Liek they hit the Pentagon with a plane."
"YEAH AND THEY ALSO HIT THE MALL."
I look at them.
"They hit Roosevelt Field?" I ask.
"KNOW MAN THE NATIONAL MALL."
"Oh, how bad is it?"
"Liek I dont know."
"What kind of plane? Like a Cessna?"
"Liek no way son it was like a 787."
"WTF?" I enquire.
"YEAH I NO WRITE?!?"

The rest of the school day goes on like this. By the end of the day I know that both Towers are gone and that bombs went off in their basements, the Pentagon has no roof, the National Mall has been hit by a plane, and that there are three other planes that have been hijacked and are currently circling over Virginia. And that Pennsylvania has been hit by a plane, but nobody knows if that was intentional or if we shot it down.

Thanks for not letting anybody get any information at all, South Side High School!

I live close enough to NYC that if anthrax was released, I'd probably get infected. Talk about irony.

[Edit: I just read this and it sounds really sarcastic. I seriously think that what happened today is one of the most terrible and psychotic things that has ever happened. A lot of people I know had parents working there, and some of them died.]

I hate America. How is this the "Land of the free" when we can be forced to serve in the military? Sent away to die! And with the Canadian border closed, where am I going to go to save myself? The only way I can get out of being drafted (if they really start drafting people) is for medical or mental reasons. Better start practicing.

There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs, huge erections, and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

This isn't as difficult as you might think.

In reality hijacking of a plane takes one person with a gun. Once they've made it on board they just need to wait for the right time (whatever that may be), get up and calmly walk to the cockpit. I don't need to spell out the rest since you won't need the flight crew.

You could put 2 people on the plane just to make sure that there is one back-up. More than that isn't needed since you're not really looking to control the passengers.

As far as getting those people with guns on to the planes, one of the evening news programs showed it wasn't difficult sometime last year. They did a story showing that the service passages for the two major airports that they went to are completely unguarded. They had a person with a concealed camera go through without anyone even looking at them. Once inside, a person would have access to any part of the airport, including going up to the gate to board a plane with all the other passengers without having to pass through a metal detector.

While the planning of the attacks seemed to be good, there was either no intent of coordination or it couldn't be carried out. Evidence of this is with the timing of the attacks on the towers. If it was coordinated, both planes would have hit at the same time. If they both struck within a second of each other, the shockwaves from the crashes would have caused the buildings to collapse much faster than they did. This would have resulted in more deaths, as the occupants of the other tower would have had no warning to evacuate and many of those who were able to evacuate from each tower when it was struck would be caught by the faster collapse.

The resources needed for the hijacking aren't much more extensive than what is needed for a car bombing. The knowledge needed to fly a plane to a destination after it is airborne (flaps, thrust, compass) is less than is needed to construct a car bomb and easier to come by.

As to guesses that these activities were carried out by members of Osama's group, they're not bad guesses. His group was linked to those that bombed the parking garage of the World Trade Center. Also, members of his group were arrested before they could do anything on the turn of the millenium. Finally, the living quarters of those who had been arrested before they could cause any problems on the turn of the millenium did have some information about another possible future attack on the World Trade Center. There was no actual details about this possible future plan reported at the time, so there really was nothing to know at the time about what has just happened.

Just getting junk out of my memory.

Oh, they won't bother drafting anyone. They have no need to. People fail to remember the US has all the firepower it needs and more, it's just a matter of whether they use it.

Most people seem to think the reason that the second crash occured a few minutes after the first was so that the media could broadcast it.
