I believe what they did was cowardly but not how they did it. The hijackers are like the pilots of the Enola Gay they knew that they would probably die (immiediatly or by radiation exposure). Both the pilots and the hijackers killed thousands and were ready to die for thier causes. Bravery is relative. Christians saw the crusades as a noble holy war while arabs saw it as an invasion and a war. Now it is the same thing with the roles reversed.

As for Bush I think he is doing very good but who wouldn't in these circumstances?

I think Bush is a good president...
BUT...it's been proven that anybody (including you or me) could be brainwashed into doing what those suicide hijackers did...they aren't the ones to blame, they're neither "brave" nor "cowardly", they were merely brainwashed by evil leaders...those are the ones who are "faceless cowards".

if were going to talk about bravery...let's mention the people that took back the plane that crashed in philly...they were brave!................the terrorist were just modern day kamakazis without a true mission!......and if they had a mission it failed because we shut down the airlines and sealed off the U.S......therefore trapping the terrorist here.

flight 93...there is a true definition of bravery and the american fighting spirit....just imagine one moment you are sitting on a plane relaxing maybe you just ordered a drink or a pillow..and then in an instant youre in a life and death struggle...these heros after hearing the fate of other flights via cell phone calls to loved ones...decided that they knew they were going to die but they were going to die fighting and save strangers on the ground...and these were regular people not soldiers ...but they set the example of what to do with this new adversary...an example for every american to follow..
also new york firefighters and police men....seeing a twin burning nightmare and when every instinct in thier body was screaming to get away from those buildings..when everyone was running for thier lives to get out and away they ran straight into thier fate and died trying to save thier brothers and sisters....
examples to live by ladies and gents..I hope if i were ever in a position such as these people that I would die a hero...and not some coward tracked down in some mountain cave hiding ..how dare anybody give any hint of bravey to those behind these acts..
