Thank You Loh Kwek Leong

Thank you sir for your estimate of American staying power. This is the
first time we have had a major terriosts attack but I agree with you we
will retaliate and we will win. We have in the past never lost a war and I
know that this sounds arrouragant, but we never will !  I am one American
that is very, very angry about what the cowards have done to us and I know
I speak for the majority. We will fight back and we will win. Someone has
declared war against us and that's the worst thing they could have done. We
as a country are angry. We and many countries around the world are tired of
the terrorists. We will exterminate them !

Thank You for your post and sorry for my anger.
