    Given the attention to the release of the movie "Flight 93"
    Im wondering if you were in a similar situation would you fight or not??

    I would be very willing to fight with every breath in my body.

    I mean no offence but this does not seem like a difficult question. If I thought that I was a passenger on a “suicide run”, then I would fight. It is as if the choice is (A) do nothing and get killed in an airplane crash that is under the control of terrorists (b) fight for control of the airplane and, by doing so, possibly reduce the odds of getting killed.

    Definitely fight. If you don't, you're <b>guaranteed</b> death. If you do, you have at least a 1% chance at life.

    The passengers on Flight 93 were aware of what happened with the other flights. Die like a wolf or die like a sheep.

    Not a tough choice.

    I think we would all be surprised at the number of people that would either be so frozen with fear, or think that the terrorists could be appeased somehow with reason. So probably not a tough question for us but who knows?

    While I would not be surprised at all, I hardly expect anyone to come right out and admit it. :laugh:

    I would be scared shitless. But I quote John Wayne, "Courage is being scared shitless but saddling up anyway." Enough said.

    About what i'd be thinking. Then id' weigh my options. They probably dont have guns since its an airline. Im going to die anyway but more people on the ground might die and it might be someone i know. Adrenaline would take over and i'd have to do something.

    See that's the thing, if enough people on the plane had the guts to stick together, they could overtake the terrorists. Its fight or die...

    I would call the United Nations and ask them to assemble the UN Security Council so that a very stern warning could be issued to the terrorists hijacking the plane. If that didn't work, I would wait for the UN to place sanctions against the terrorist's home nations. Barring any of that, I would call the ACLU and ask them to file a suit. I would then contact Every European nation and ask them how to negotiate with the terrorists because, as we all know, violence is never the answer.









    Then there is the REAL me who would get out of his seat and do his damndest to cram whatever weapon the terrorists have up their butts sideways, and then make every effort to ensure those same terrorists get a jump on meeting Allah and those 72 virgins they are expecting by testing the laws of gravity from 10,000 feet. I suspect that they would still apply.
