I'm glad that your trip to Vietnam was a memorable one. I notice you didn't elaborate on what you and your girlfriend did while you were there ;)
You don't know me, as I just signed up, but my friend MagmaDragoon (John) does, and he says that you were cool. So he shot me a link to the page where your posts were on, and I read and enjoyed the description of your trip.
As for the Anthrax scare, I don't think we should really worry since the disease can't be transmitted from person to person, so any exposure would be very concentrated. However, the FBI now tells us to brace for another attack on U.S. soil; now this scares me ... Saying that invokes panic, something I'm sure the government would NOT want to do, so for them TO do it means that they must know something that we don't. Now we wait, and see if indeed there is another terrorist attack. If there is, and it results in mass loss of life, I do think that there would be a state of panic. Remember the movie "Siege" with Denzel Washington? Ironically, the movie is about arabic terrorism in NYC. After multiple terrorist attacks, all Arab Americans were put into "detention centers" .. don't be surprised if that happens in real life. If that does happen, then the REAL hell will break loose for no doubt they won't go peacefully, and there will be other americans who would violently protest to the point that there might be a armed conflict between American protestors and the Military. People say that this is highly unlikely, but please remember that during WWII, Japanese Americans were put into concentration camps and were treated horribly. It is kind of odd that this was never discussed, and quietly swept under the carpet. Maybe because the government violated their constitutional freedom, a freedom that we supposed to hold so dear?
Too many words on the first post, so I apologize
