ATTACK ON THE U.S.

Saturday, Feb. 4, 2006

Reactions to the attack on America

Kathy Jaeckel (letter - Oct. 3) is having intuitive thoughts about world events. I, too, have had these thoughts prior to the World Trade Center terrorism attacks. I had a week of terrible dreams of buildings blowing up, people falling from great heights, fire, and glass shattering. The week before, I had dreams of an airplane crashing into the ground. Now I have them again, only this time there is a university close to the ocean, and a young man who goes there was piloting a plane, and it crashed. He was intending to do a terrorist act. He isn't very old, more than 20, though. I saw a man in a blue uniform with gold braid on the plane that crashed. I am not from the United States, so I have no idea what that uniform means. I don't know how to interpret these things I keep seeing - all I know is that for what ever reason, this information comes to me. I am not prone to flights of fancy, so this is really hard for me to do. However, I would hate to think that I was receiving something and didn't do anything with it, if it helps stop these awful things happening.

Notes from a former military person: The terrorist organization that attacked the United States has a grasp of battle strategy. Modern infantry training's goal is to close with and destroy the enemy in the most violent means possible (Canadian Forces Battle School literature). And in no strategic engagement in the past 200 years has the trump card been dealt in the first hand. Conclusion: We've all become complacent lately - it's been almost a month, after all, since the WTC and Pentagon bombings, so how could it get any worse? I wish that I could say that I think this is all over, but I fear that the worst is yet to come. The day after the attacks, I was in a coffee shop and someone remarked, "Gee, I'm sure glad I'm Canadian." I wanted to grab him by the shoulders and shout, "Don't you get it? This is terrorism! We're all at risk now!"

Why, why, why, more war? Have we not grown from 1945?
Annette Cook

A U.S. military strike in Afghanistan would trigger terrorist counterattacks in the United States and probably many of its allies. It would be foolish to believe Osama bin Laden did not foresee this military retaliation or that he has nothing else up his sleeve. Has Canada increased security here at home to the many forms a possible counterattack may take?
Dan Yuen

The Western way of life allows all peoples the right to be who we are, as long as we don't infringe on the rights of others in any way. Why is it that these fanatics have to create chaos and kill innocent people to be heard? It is like having a two-year-old in a government office with a gun.
Jeanette Bishop

I sometimes believe God made a mistake putting humans on earth. The animals would have survived without us - they kill for survival, while we kill because of different colours and religions.
