In terms of the casualties, my belief is that the powers that be allow for or condone casualties from both sides for what they think to be the greater good of the country in the future. 3000 Americans is a drop in the bucket to them IMO, compared to the gains made by having a military presence inthe Gulf.

As far as the airlines are concerned, they lost money, but nowhere near what was gained...the Airlines sufferred for a short time and the defense contracts continue to grow....for 5+ years now.

For these people, American Airlines taking a large hit means nothing if they're willing to sacrIfice lives.

I swear...I can't help but chuckle at some of these "theories". I especially like the idea that a government that vacillates from good works to bad works, brilliant ideas to stupid ideas, progressive policies to regressive policies, etc., is thought to have plotted the most extensive, secretive, mind blowin' scheme in the new era of "I wanna be Woodward or Bernstein too!" publicitymongers/whistleblowers...

I take everything with a grain of salt unless I see it firsthand but I personally don't go to the extremes cuz I'd rather just go to bed at night without night visioning my property for intruders, sweeping my house for bugs, etc., before I lay down...

Yea...I'm just an out-of-control fool...

Tho I'll admit to a certain curiosity about that pizza delivery van with the antenna that's been parked in front of my house the last 3 weeks...

I don't sweep for bugs, just people. Or possibly demons.

Got into an argument a few days back when a guy said "I can't believe people actually believe that Area 51 crap." My response? Dude, you know that really is a top secret military installation right?

Area 51

I sweep my house for bugs, but only Box Elder Bugs and Japanese Beetles.
