    We need to finish the war on terror by eradicating those responsible for starting it on 911. It may be impossible to get everyone of those animals responsible, but certainly we can make it so expensive for these beasts and those that harbor them that they will think twice before going after innocent Americans or our allies.

    We did not start this war, but history has shown us to be experts at finishing them victoriously.

    The ubiquitous threat of terrorism over the lives and thoughts of people everywhere. It is sad to see that so unfairly terrorism hits innocent people, so murderous.

    My best thoughts are with the injured and the families of the victims in Indonesia.

    I am so happy to see a President of the United States of America finally take a position publicly on racism, America would be so powerful working together with one another, I often wonder why it is, that different races have so much hanger and hate that they let it take so much power over them. I salute you President Obama and all Americans that say its time for a change, you showed this in the elections, its time.

    Considering this is the second time JW Marriott became a target for bombings... I think someone over there doesn't like JW Marriott. Which really angers me since how could anyone destroy lives and kill innocent people just to send a message?
