Police in Wichita, Kansas, arrested a 22-year-old man at an airport hotel after he tried to pass two (counterfeit) $16 bills. @ 07:50 pm

I asked my dad tonight if he was still glad he voted for Bush. He replied that he thought Bush was handling himself pretty well all things considered. I told him I thought Bush was acting like that 3rd grader that gets pushed down in the dirt, and then gets back up and wants to show the whole play ground how tough he is by getting angry at everyone. I really think he's going about this whole thing all wrong. He's far too agressive, too war hungry. I really don't think more lives lost is the solultion to this whole thing. At least not at this point, there are a lot of other (diplomatic) things that need to be exhausted first.

My mom thinks bush is the best thing since slided bread. It worries me that she may be a fair repersentation of america's feelings.

I agree with you, though.

During a time of war, most American's rally behind the president. It's the easy thing to do. Makes you feel important. I think most people are blind to by the massive amount of life that's about to be lost.

I'd just like to say I'm not blind to it. I know lots of innocent lives are going to be lost in the next few years (and, yes, it's probably going to be years), but sitting back and pretending nothing happened isn't going to accomplish anything other than saying to terrorists around the world that it's okay for you to do this because we won't punish you for it.

I'll admit that as an American, I've become more than accustomed to incidents like this being somewhat distant. We've always been safe here as long as I can remember.

I've been on the internet for about 8 years now, and I've met a lot of people who haven't had that comfort. A good friend of mine was raised in Croatia, and I've heard lots of horror stories from her.

But we have the technology, the capability, the resources to find who is responsible and take them down.

it's not going to be easy by any stretch of the imagination, but it's needed. If only to tell these psychotics that we won't stand for this anymore. We're not declaring war on Afghanistan or Iraq or anywhere else, we're going after the people who perpetrated this heinous crime on our home soil.

If you see a problem with that, then maybe you ought to rethink whose side you're on...

I would advocate a more diplomatic solution. I agree that something does need to be done. But I think we're being to agressive. That's all.
