lives very close to us. His town is about a half an hour away from us in Batavia,Ohio. I keep seeing that vido of him and get more and more upset. The fear in his eyes says it all. There is also a truck driver that I think is from Ohio too being held over there. It seems to have hit home hard,and although there have been a few threads allready about it,I keep wondering what we are waiting for? Are they planning a big attack? I know there are other hostages and people missing,as well as the Italian that was killed.Now Osama has put out a new video which a lot of people feel may be sending a signal of some sort. I feel things are gearing up on their side and something is going to happen. Meanwhile,the U.S. is talking about nothing but the stupid biased 9-11 commission which has now proven itself to be a joke. I look at it like this-we have a U.S. soldier and civilians being held hostage,and where is the media? SOme are talking about it,but not all. Deborah Norville last night celebrated Sesame Street being 35. That is great and all,but I was sitting there thinking about all these hostages and why weren't they getting that kind of coverage? Once and for all,the time has come to move in and take care of these rebels and problem cities-it's getting out of hand. My husband suggested last night that maybe when all the looting was going on way back when over there,the looters should have been shot on sight,then they would be shuddering,and to afraidto behave like this. a little more military muscle or good ol gun power isneededIMO!
