> I would just like to say how refreshing it is to find a message like this on the board...just today, I got an email from CoffeeCup Software (for some reason, I'm on their mailing list) claiming that the company would call for the "destruction and annihilation" of whichever country is responsible for this atrocity. It is just so nice to see so many opinions from people like Kaz, Jezzika and all the other people here, not baying for blood but instead wanting to rebuild.

I second that. This is the closest (I can think of) to a declaration of war on the USA without actualy doing it. However, as George W said yesterday, this is an attack on the entire free world, and I hope that the entire free world can stand together in a resolute answer. I especially hope that the US doesn't (and won't need to) go to war alone, because I don't see that giving anything but short-term benefits, and possibly not even that. And this situation needs a long-term solution, otherwise attacks such as the one yesterday (or worse) will only happen again. The US needs to rid itself of the "Great Satan" image it has in some parts of the world, and the world needs to rid itself of terrorism. This can be accomplished only by standing together.
