PAK PARTY OF IRAN DECLARATION OF TERRORIST CONDEMNATION
Once again ,the retarded of civilization made another crime!
Once again, self-praising power aspirants spread their terror by another immense calamity to the humanity and human pure conscience to satisfy their listlessness and self-made haughtiness!
Yes, suicide terror with two of the global business centers in New York and their thorough razed, fixed all the stunned eyes to New York and ascertained that overlooking the terrors will someday increase unreliable and irreparable expenses and lives .
Undoubtedly, there is no word or phrase that could express the sorrow and grief of the people of the world, and Iranian nation are right beside the world to condemn this regrettable happening which is not vindicable by any human criterion.

From United Kingdom
This e-mail is from us in the United Kingdom to our friends in the states, it is not trying to sell you anything, and whilst yes it is spam we make no apology for that because it is the only way we have of communicating with lots of you to let you know how we or should I say “I” feel, but I am sure I speak for millions of us over here.
We cannot begin to tell you how sorry we all are for what has happened to your country and I know you will have read and heard many things, over the past few days and there are no words adequate enough to explain the emotions we feel.
However this e-mail is to let you know that in the near future whatever action your country will be taking, we are with you 100%.
Sadly in Britain today it appears that the mimby mamby jerks that will start to object when the US takes the action it needs to, will be given much airtime, as they seem to have the loudest voices.
Well let me tell you here and now that when you start to hear the whinging that will be on your TV sets in the not too distant future, pay them no attention because unfortunately whilst under our laws they have to be given equal airtime, they only represent a very, very tiny part of our population.
DO NOT LISTEN WE ARE WITH YOU ALL THE WAY.
The vast majority of our people agree, its no use saying “please no war” war has already started and sadly your country was the first casualty but the war is not just against America it is against us all.
However please be assured from us that whilst many of yourselves and us are going to have to die to stamp out this evil in our world.
We stands alongside you proud in the knowledge that if this is the price we all have to pay in order to grind these scumbags into the ground with the rest of the canine excrement where so deservedly belong, then so be it.
Let us not listen to the doubters and pacifist the time for appeasement is over, we all have to stand up to these monsters now.
And whilst we know that we will soon start hearing the rest of Europe whinging and moaning, believe me BRITAIN is with you.
I won’t close with the clichÃ© “God Bless You All” because I am not a religious person.
But I wish us all success in the grave task that is ahead for both our nations.

As I have talked to people since the terrorist actions, I see a completely changed attitude of people’s reaction in they find that they are on a hijacked plane in the future.
In the past, we tended to believe that if we sit quietly, the plan will land in Cuba, Algeria, etc and we will survive. Such a passive approach seemed to produce the most likely method of survival.
If the future, people seemed to tell me that they are most likely to choose the path of the fourth hijacked plane. Since it is likely that you will die with no action, why not try and foil the plans of those trying to control the situation.
I think this is an interesting change and may represent a pattern that affects other related behavior.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated –
