    I'm pissed off, but not scared. I think that's the best way to describe America these days, too.

    Although it certainly wasn't their intent, the terrorists made our country stronger, not weaker. We haven't been this united since World War II.

    Thanks for the encouraging words, Bezek. And welcome to VHForums. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I was shocked, but life has gone back to normal. If anything, things have improved -- there's a renewed sense of patriotism, people are a little kinder to one another, closer to their families, and so on. We as a nation are stronger because of it, not weaker.

    As far as the American economy worsening because of the 9/11 events, that's a lie. Our economy was going down the crapper long before the terrorist attacks...

    I think all the terrorists really accomplished was pissing us off. All they did was unify a nation that had been seperated. As they can well see they were no real match. I would suspect that they never really knew the devastation that would be and will be levied on their poor pathetic asses.

    Nope, not scared one bit. I'm not foolish enough to think this could never happen again or that we could succeed in stopping all terrorism, but life goes on. Living in fear is no way to live, and I'm not about to start.

    That said, I think everyone here is willing to put up with just a bit more hassle for the purposes of security than we have before. We'd rather take the chances of preventing another 9-11 than get someplace a few minutes sooner.

    The whole anthrax thing was pretty funky though. I'll admit that even I handled my mail with care after that. I remember I got a package one day and couldn't remember ordering anything. The return address didn't sound like anything familiar to me. I ended up gingerly opening that thing over the trashcan just in case a white powder would fall out. Turned out to be my free Disney DVD I got on a rebate for buying Snow White for somebody a few months back.

    It takes alittle more to scare American's than this. We have delt with much worse that this in our lives. All its really done is make for more an uplift in public patriotism.
    I work for a freight forwarder DHL, and we do see increase in security in most high rises and other federal locations. IMHO its about time. Any one could in and out of Fermi and Argonne national labs all day. (justsome federal labs in the Chicago area). Now you must have 2 ids, a pass from security, and full van searches by armed soldiers. My job is harder now, but I can live with the inconviences. I heard in Isreal that they usually strip search you before bording airplanes? I don't know if that BS or not, but atleast we are not there yet.

    Fuck no. Bizness as usual dude. That would be exactly what they would want from us. Fear. Hence "terrorism".

    I'll admit I've put more thought to things like anthrax, small pox etc., and even did a couple double takes on passengers on planes I've been on. But I certainly dont live in fear. How much longer can fear make you live?

    Thanks for your comments though. That must have been a tough stint for you over there to say the least.....the very least actually. Good that you made it out ok. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    IMHO, it's close to business as usual over here, but it's kind of like we live in a state of heightened awareness or something. We're all paying attention to what's going on and we're especially conscious that we're Americans, proud, and what have you.

    Thanks for the encouragement, Bezek. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Same here... business as usual. I refuse to do it any other way. In a way, the attack opened our eyes to be more alert, and that is a good thing. Hopefully, we'll be able to prevent anything like this from happening again.

    I remember when I was in the Philippines, and about to enter the US embassy there... The embassy guards did an extensive search of our vehicle, our bags, brief cases, and the like. No cameras allowed, two forms of ID... and I can remember thinking, "Wow! That's extreme!" but never complained because there were problems with American abductions. The airport had armed military at all entrances... and again, I was thankful that we didn't have that here.

    Now we do. I'm not complaining. It is a question of safety and preventative medicine. Rather that then live through 9/11 again or anything remotely close to it.

    esquiretoo does not live in fear. esquiretoo lives with anger, which he would love to direct toward those responsible. Further, being a reservist in the military, i feel the need to kick ass. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    As the marines say at Camp Rhino, "It is God's responsibility to forgive bin laden for what he has done. It is our responsibility to arrange the meeting."
