Post 737 crashes into World Trade Centre

Just saw on CNN that a 737 has crashed
into the World Trade Centre.

Pictures look very disturbing.

RIP all those who have perished

Reports that the FBI were investigating a hijack immediately before...

It's beyond words.

Both World Trade Center planes were west coast bound - one from BOS, one from IAD - that means heavies or perhaps A320.

Pentagon was hit by commuter a/c.

Fire coming from 2 blocks from white house (state dept.?)

1-2 more aircraft still missing and presumed airborne.....

It's dreadful to think that this can happen. What is even worse is that there are those who call these devils "Freedom fighters".

What next ?

Our thoughts must be with those who have friends and relatives affected by this enormous tragedy.

I only pray that the poor pilots who were in those planes had been removed from control prior to impact, as the thoughts that one must face when ordered to fly into a building are beyond my comprehension. One hopes/presumes the terrorists flew the last few minutes.

My thoughts go to all killed today, especially the crews, both flight deck and cabin who thought today was going to be routine. God rest them all.

My greatest fear now is what that 'numbskull redneck' president is going to authorise as a reprisal. Let's hope we are not looking at the start of world war 3 today!

Another bloody disgraceful display by the Arab/Palestinian world....when will they let up.

There will be huge reprecutions from this dispicable TERRORIST act.
How can these poeple justify "the cause" by implementing evil attacks on inocent civilians.

My condolances to the families who died.

I now hope the fundamentalist extremists are put to death for these crimes.
