We may not be safer (though I would need to give some thought, and better still, some research before I answered)but we are at least engaged.

The names and faces to my friends and their families lost on 9/11.....only their faces we're never found.....ever.

Only their names and security tags.....And 7 pounds of flesh filtered thru DNA.....

No one had a chance to pay their last respects or say good bye.....No. We won't ever forget or forgive. Till the end.....

It is a morning I will never forget during my life. Or so long as my mind remembers things.
Some days the news enspires, somedays the news is upsetting, sometimes it makes you curse at the television like it can understand you, sometimes it makes you laugh, and once it made me cry. That was a terrible and scorching morning for the soul.

When out with an old buddy who was in the Army with me and now an Exo too.. we commented on how things have gone on terrorism with every nutjob with an attitude getting plans for bombs of the internet these days...

A famous quote "all we have to fear is fear itself".. and still very true...

Al Quada is NOT the organisation everything thinks it to be... they are starting to break down under the pressure they are on and its evident in their disrupted ability to communicate... that device was most likely done by poorly trained bomb techs who are the nutter job wannabees who want to get into the Islamic Terror Club... UK CT units will be all over this, and the fact that its unexploded will provide a wealth of forensic Intel to track the nutjobs down and get them dead or behind bars before they do get the training to be effective...

One thing is for sure, they are 150% motivated, but arent trained or connected yet... but time is ticking, they HAVE to be caught or killed.. either solution is acceptable...

I said the same thing I said above about 9/11.
