Thumbs down US under terrorist attack - Are you all safe?

Namaste eCharchans,

Unfortunately, USA joins the club of those countries whose membership requires a terrorist attack on its people and cities.

It is very shocking and sad and enraging.

We hope and pray for the souls of the dead people and wish to extend our support to the relatives of the vitims.

How are all of you and any relatives in NY and Washingtomn area?

People please find out and post how we can help by small yet useful things like say blood donation?

Shama & Sunit

Twin terror attacks stagger U.S.

Financial markets, Manhattan and much of the nation are shut down after hijacked planes ram the World Trade Center, toppling the twin towers. The Pentagon in Washington also attacked; the U.S. military is on full alert.

Much of Manhattan is shut down after the twin 1,400-foot towers of the World Trade Center collapsed, struck by two commercial planes in what could be the worst terror attack ever on U.S. soil.
The fate of the thousands who work in those twin skyscrapers was unknown as rescue workers poured into lower Manhattan even as the financial district shut down and much of the island was being evacuated. Another attack hit the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.

Four commercial jetliners were reportedly hijacked and crashed in the attacks.

The SEC canceled all stock trading for the day, and CNBC reported that trading would likely not resume until Monday.

The FAA shut down air traffic throughout the nation, and buildings across the nation and even in London closed down. The White House and most federal buildings in Washington closed their doors.

MSNBC.com reporter Martin Wolk, who was inside one of the towers, told that Web site the lights flickered and then a loud bang was heard when the first plane struck about 9 a.m. People panicked and started to flee the building.

When they reached the lobby, smoke started to fill the building and people could see debris falling and many cars outside were damaged. “It was sheer pandemonium, people were screaming and crying, afraid to go outside because of the falling debris,” Wolk said. “We looked up and it looked like the top 20 floors were in flames.”

Shortly after 9 a.m., with news cameras already broadcasting the image of the burning towers, the second plane struck and exploded in a huge fireball.

President George W. Bush called the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City this morning "apparent terrorist attacks" and a national tragedy.

"Terrorism against our nation will not stand,'' Bush said.

The president made the statements before returning to Washington, D.C., this morning from his two-day visit to Florida. He was supposed to make an appearance at an elementary school to promote literacy.

Smoke poured from the towers and filled the financial district and lower Manhattan.

"It is pitch black," CNBC's Maria Bartiromo said of the scene on Wall Street. "You are basically surrounded by smoke and debris coming at you. Earlier, we actually saw bodies coming out of the top of the World Trade Center." See her video report here.

Bartiromo was reporting from inside the New York Stock Exchange, which she says has suffered no internal damage. She also described the scene outside when the World Trade Center towers fell:

"There was a huge explosion, noise. Everyone on Broadway ran for their lives, including myself."

Flights to tragedy

Four flights -- two from United Airlines, two from American Airlines -- are known to have been involved in the attacks today. American flight 11, en route to Los Angeles from Boston, is believed to have been one of the two planes that crashed into the World Trade Center. The other is believed to have been United flight 175, which took off from Boston on the way to Los Angeles.

American flight 77, with 64 people on board, crashed into the Pentagon; it had been bound for Los Angeles from Washington’s Dulles airport. And finally, United flight 93, en route to San Francisco from Newark, N.J., reportedly went down somewhere south of Pittsburgh.

United has confirmed that 110 people were on board its two flights. American said 164 people had been aboard its flights. All were presumed dead.

Buildings shut down; Fed open

The attacks that paralyzed New York and Washington also shut down buildings and offices across the nation. But the Federal Reserve stayed open.

Across the country, skyscrapers like Chicago’s Sears Trade tower were being evacuated as a precaution. Buildings were also being evacuated in London. Ford was closing and evacuating its Dearborn, Mich., offices.

Major league baseball also shut down for the day, canceling games across the country. Kennedy Space Center in Florida and Hoover Dam in Nevada were closed.

U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan is not currently at the Fed's Washington building, the central bank said on Tuesday following a series of devastating attacks on Washington and New York landmarks.

``The chairman is not at the board,'' said Fed spokesman David Skidmore. ``We do not discuss or provide details of his travel plans.''

CNBC reported that Greenspan was safe and that he was still in Basel, Switzerland, where he had been attending a central bankers' meeting.

The Federal Reserve said it was open and operating and that its discount window will provide liquidity to financial markets as needed.

Evacuations were under way at the New York Stock Exchange, the New York Mercantile Exchange and many banks.

``We're evacuating the building,'' said Vincent Palazzolo, chief trader at Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp. offices in midtown Manhattan.

Brown Brothers Harriman & Co., across the street from the NYSE, called clients to ask them to stop requesting trades. Banc One Capital Markets in Chicago is evacuating its offices, said Heather Boyer at the bank's foreign exchange sales desk in Chicago.

``At first everyone was calm, then when the theory changed to it being terrorism, the dollar seemed to move lower,'' said Nick Parsons, global head of currency research at Commerzbank AG in London.

The Chicago Mercantile Exchange and Chicago Board of Trade suspended trading for the day at 9:15 a.m. Merc stock index futures had been delayed after the New York Stock Exchange delayed its equity index market opening.

The Chicago Board Options Exchange and Chicago Stock Exchange also suspended operations. Local brokerage firms closed their offices for the day.

Bond market closes

Stock trading never opened this morning, and U.S. Treasuries were frozen at higher levels this morning when the Bond Market Association recommended an immediate close.

Prices had opened mixed with long-dated securities on the weaker side, but the disaster that subsequently engulfed downtown Manhattan inspired a flight to quality that pushed prices of U.S. government debt higher.

In Europe, shares in insurers plunged after the landmark attacks, a possible sign of what will happen when U.S. markets eventually reopen.

The Dow Jones European Stoxx insurance sector <.SXIP> fell 8.5%, while the Eurotop insurance index dived 9.64%.

Insurance companies could face claims running into billions of dollars stemming from the incident. A U.S. insurance industry official told Reuters damage could cost insurers billions of dollars. U.S. airlines could face similar claims.

Dollar keeps sliding, gold and oil surge

The dollar and some bonds continue to trade, because they are not bound to any particular exchange. By midday, the dollar lost about 1% against the euro, 1.5% against the Japanese yen and more than 2% versus the Swiss franc. Global investors clearly are parking their money in countries perceived as removed from today's attacks.

Commodities prices have soared. Benchmark crude-oil futures surged about $1.85 to close at $29.30, lifted by knee-jerk fears of an oil shortage. And gold, traditionally viewed as the safest hedge against market adversity, soared some $17 an ounce in European trade.

``There is panic buying of metals, gold and oil -- it is complete pandemonium,'' said Robin Bhar, metals analyst at Standard Bank London. ``Gold and oil have gone up and it is a drive toward safe haven territory.''

European stock indexes slide

The pan-European FTSE Eurotop 300 has lost 4.5% of its value, and indexes in major European capitals were lower. Some European markets closed temporarily, while others remained open.

Insurance burden will be huge

The human and political damage of today's attack is impossible to calculate, but one corporate casualty is sure to be the insurance industry. Claims will easily reach into the billions of dollars, according to industry experts quoted by the news services.

"It is safe to assume claims will be in the billions," Robert Hartwig, chief economist for the Insurance Information Institute, told Reuters. He says losses from intentional attacks generally would be covered.

Among the largest property/casualty insurers are AIG (AIG, news, msgs), Allianz (AZ, news, msgs) and Allstate (ALL, news, msgs).

Inside the towers

Morgan Stanley Dean Witter is the largest tenant in New York's World Trade Center, Bloomberg reports.

Morgan Stanley occupies 12.5 percent in tower 2, followed by the 10-million square foot complexes' owner, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which occupies 9 percent of the space.

ABM Industries (ABM, news, msgs) has 800 or more janitorial and facilities workers who staff the Trade Center during various shifts. The Trade Center is ABM's largest job site, contributing annual sales of $65 million (3% of the company's annual revenue).

As many as 200,000 people pass through the complex on a typical weekday, including 40,000 who work there and 50,000 taking the PATH trains that connect New York and New Jersey.

The property was also attacked in February 1993, when terrorists set off a bomb in an underground garage in an effort to cause the collapse of both towers. The explosion killed six and caused $525 million of damage.

Horrifying!!!

It's still not sinking in. God knows what this is going to start.

All we can hear out here are the roars of Air Force planes flying. Nice to hear that all echarchans are doing fine. My heart and my prayers go out to all those who have suffered losses. Thanks all of you for enquiring about me and calling up. Thanks once again.

Lets pray for all those who are in the midst of this calamity. May God help them all.

All-American Nightmare
For half a century, the US has basked in the certainty of its commercial and military invulnerability. Now the confidence of the post-war era has been blasted away for ever
by Mary Dejevsky
12 September 2001
The horror of it; the scale of it; the symbolism of it... Hour after hour after hour, television news presenters had to convince their viewers, and surely themselves, that the pictures rolling across their screens were not from some Hollywood disaster epic, but real.

Yesterday's coordinated attacks on the nerve centres of American power were Pearl Harbor and Oklahoma City, Apocalypse Now and The Towering Inferno all rolled into one: the ultimate American nightmare. Within a matter of minutes, the most powerful country in the world, a land at the height of its global influence and wealth, was reduced to a gibbering, panicked state of siege. Its phone lines were blocked; its air space was closed, its crack fighter planes were scrambled to protect the skies over Washington. Their orders were to shoot down any plane in the sky – this, in a country where thousands of planes ply the air-lanes every hour. The White House and Capitol Hill were evacuated.

Real-time video testified to the impotence of authority in the face of such devastation and fear. We saw fire-engines racing towards the White House, so small and so obviously futile against an out-of-control threat from the air. We saw the World Trade Centre towers, first one then the other, as they crumbled into vast clouds of smoke, one with the errant plane still wedged in its side. And we heard President Bush – never the most impressive of presences or the most articulate of speakers – pledge to "hunt down the folks" who had committed such atrocities, and then call for a minute of silence.

The faces of those who had fled the vicinity of the World Trade Centre said it all: not just terror, but disbelief, and not just disbelief, but a sense of humiliation as well. Attacked first in 1993 by Islamic fundamentalist terrorists, the towers had long been fully repaired and back in service. The first edifice that many arriving visitors to the city saw and recognised, they were a hallmark of American corporate wealth, just as much a symbol of New York City and the United States as the Statue of Liberty, and in some ways a more apposite comment on the US at the start of the 21st century. Those towers are no more.

To target only the Trade Towers would have sent one message; to target the Pentagon as well, and perhaps also the Capitol and the White House, was nothing less than a multiple strike at the essence of America's global reach: not just its commercial dominance, but its military might as well. The Pentagon, the bastion of the US defence establishment, was severely damaged. That both centres should have proved so vulnerable on the very same day, at almost the same hour, ranks as a failure of cataclysmic proportions, however hard to detect and prevent the attacks might have been.

In the inquest on which the United States was almost too shocked to embark last night, every angle will be explored, calling into question every aspect of the American way of doing things. It will start with the failure of intelligence that allowed so expertly organised an attack on such sensitive landmarks, and continue with the failure of airport security that enabled at least four commercial aircraft to be hijacked from US domestic airports within minutes of each other, and flown to destruction.

Security, for all its cool and formalistic efficiency, has never been the United States' strong point. Between the paranoid suspicion of all things alien and the blissful acceptance of all things American, there is a wide gap through which assassins and terrorists can pass. US intelligence and security institutions have always had difficulty penetrating the mind of an enemy. The notion that any one person, let alone an organised group, could place their cause – whatever it is – above life itself is simply beyond American understanding. They find it hard to comprehend suicide bombings in the Middle East or in Sri Lanka; on their home territory, it is a matter for straight disbelief.

It was still uncertain last night who it was that had perpetrated perhaps the world's most costly act of terrorism. The first instincts of Americans are to look outside their borders to known enemies, such as the Afghanistan-based mastermind Osama bin Laden, who are ritually demonised – often beyond all reason – and automatically blamed for any attacks on Americans wherever they may take place in the world, and regardless of the group's known resources. The bombing of the US federal building in Oklahoma City six years ago was an object lesson here, which taught the dangers of such assumptions. The nationwide search for Islamic terrorists slowed down the search for the real culprit, who was apprehended almost by accident by a combination of basic police work and a cop with a gut feeling. This time, the authorities – if not public opinion – may be more circumspect.

So paralysed was America in the aftermath of the two-centred conflagration that any accurate information was almost impossible to come by yesterday. By lunchtime on the east coast of the United States, there was still not even an approximate figure for the numbers of those killed and injured just after breakfast-time. How many victims could there be, from two office towers accommodating 20,000 workers apiece, from four hijacked planes that had crashed (with or without passengers), from the ruins of a wing of the Pentagon? The scale of the possible carnage passed comprehension, and will continue to do so even as the hard facts emerge.

Beyond the personal tragedies of the individuals and the families whose lives will be changed forever, the greatest and longest-lasting damage of all will be to the American psyche. America has always stood apart from other countries by its grand designs, its ingrained optimism and its sense of well-being. However beleaguered individuals, institutions and governments might be at any one time, America felt good about itself; that was the enduring quality of the nation.

One response to this multiple act of destruction in the two centres of American power could be defiance and perhaps a feeling of national solidarity. But Americans, unlike Britons, are unused to comprehensive adversity. The spirit of the Blitz is not something Americans have experienced collectively, even in a previous generation. They are not used to collective insecurity, except personal insecurity on dangerous city streets. And as a people, they are not accustomed to having their authority – or their innate goodness or rightness – challenged. When that challenge is as devastating and as comprehensive as it was yesterday, optimism will give way to angst.

In the weeks and months to come, every American certainty will be questioned: from the competence of its authorities at every level, to the workings of the X-ray machines at its airports. Whereas before, abroad was the place to fear, and the US was the place of comfort and refuge and safety, now the home front will also be the cause of much apprehension. The President will be called upon to lead as never before, and it will show the mettle of the man if he can do that. Nothing in his life or career so far has prepared George Bush the younger for such a task, and few can be confident that he will show himself equal to it.

Although politicians will come together, as they do without question, at a time of so all-embracing a national crisis, one of the pillars of Mr Bush's programme has been blown as effectively to dust as the World Trade Centre. What price National Missile Defence now? What price stray missiles from North Korea, if the country is not capable of protecting Lower Manhattan and the Pentagon from planes hijacked from its own American airports? The billions of dollars may be better spent securing the country against seemingly random threats from elsewhere.

Tuesday, 11 September 2001, will go down in America's annals as the day that changed everything. It was the day that a nation's confidence was shattered during morning rush-hour in New York City, and its defensive might was mocked at coffee-time in Washington. It was the American dream smashed to bits in the style of a Hollywood spectacular – that turned out not to be Hollywood after all.

Canadian airports closed after terrorist attacks in U.S.


Canadian Press

All Canadian airports were shut down indefinitely Tuesday morning, with all domestic and international flights grounded, in the aftermath of confusion over terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, said a senior government source in Ottawa.

Airports were accepting U.S. flights already in the air following the bombing that needed to be diverted to airports outside the U.S.

The shutdown was confirmed by a spokesman for the Calgary Airport Authority.

“All Canadian airspace has been closed other than for inbound overseas flights,” said Mike Cunnington.

Airports were scrambling to find extra staff to provide information to thousands of passengers stranded as a result of the cancellations.

Thumbs down

I really hope they do...

I also hope US realizes what India has been hinting at all this time.

Today I thought I was close to losing my dad again. I nearly lost him the 1994 Rajdhani Express bomb blasts on trains enroute to Delhi. And I know I DO NOT want to relive the experience again.

I do hope US will beat the f*cking shit outta the perpetrators. Because if they are not taught a lesson now, I don't think they ever will be.

I am upset, raving mad and just plain pissed off..............
