Recent News

I haven't voted yet so I keep being reminded by people that there's only a few more days before election day. On a different note on the ABC NEWS a videotape was aired Thursday night in which a shrouded man who identified himself as "Azzam the American" claimed he was an American member of Al-Qaida. He made threats of future terrorist attacks in the U.S. He reported that "September 11th was but the opening salvo of the global war on America.

In my opinion we can't keep going the way we have been. A tape broadcast Thursday by ABC news also appeared to confirm suspicions reported earlier this month to the IAEA by Iraqi officials , who said that hundreds of tons of high-grade explosives, poweful enough to bring down buildings or detonate nuclear weapons, had vanished from the Al-Qaqaa site after the U.S. led invasion of Iraq. A U.S. intelligence official said the 377 tons of missing Iraqi high explosives are only a fraction of the weapons related material that has disappeared since the invasion. U.N. officials said they also are concerned about the disappearance of sensitive equipment and controlled materials that could be used to develop nuclear, biological or chemical weapons.

I'm worried about the state of our nation. I'm really not sure if we can overcome another terrorist attack. More than likely another terrorist attack would end up being an extreme act of violence. 

I can't say for sure what the outcome of all this will be. I just have to say that news such as this is far more morbid than anything Edgar Allen Poe could have ever written.
