It is really sad hearing so many people in the US out for blood (I have no way to tell how many people feel this way -- the internet+media can give a very skewed perspective on things). The terrorists killed many innocent people in the WTC, most likely because of issues they had with the US govenment and foreign policy. If the US turns around and kills innocent Palestinians or Afgahns (or where ever they happen to be based) in order to get the terrorists, that would be just as bad an act of terrorism.
In local news, Ansett has stopped flying, which means the only interstate domestic airline serving Perth now is Qantas. I hope the ACCC keeps air fares in check.
It seems that even though Judge North ruled in favour of the Tampa refugees, they are still going to Nauru until the government is finished apealing the judgement. I don't know anyone who approves of how the government treats boat people.
