We the American People are at War.

It is not a traditional War. Our enemies have by-passed our state and federal
defenses and targeted United States citizens directly. We must now learn to
defend ourselves by fighting back:

- If you are on a plane that is being hi-jacked, it is more than likely going
to be piloted into a key strategic military or civilian "target". It is no
longer safe to assume that the terrorists are going to land the plane and make
demands like hi-jackings of the past decades.

- Anyone possessing any sort of self defense training, unusual strength, police
and military training, karate skills, or have played any sort of contact sport,
should find inner strength and resolve to attack these terrorists. I don't
care what the FAA says. We are at War. We now know that these "new"
terrorists are on a suicide mission.

- Now that we have a bitter understanding of the type of War our enemies are
waging directly against the American People, we need to send a CLEAR message
that we WILL defend ourselves. 50+ people on a plane should not be overtaken
by a few terrorists with knives and razor blades. One consolation is that any
terrorist that makes it on a plane with a weapon will have had to pass through
the tightest security we have ever seen in the history of American travel.
Even if they do posses a gun, more than likely it will be a small weapon and
only wielded by one terrorist.

- If you see someone making an effort to defend the plane: PLEASE HELP THEM!

- You may die. This is war. WE are the soldiers now. We MUST fight back.
Saving the lives of the people on the plane and the "targets" on the ground is
the mission.

- There are no rules of engagement. I have been preaching for years that when
you are attacked personally and your life is in danger, you must do WHATEVER it
takes to defend your life. This applies to a hi-jacking as well. Gouging out
eyes, biting, snapping necks, kicking groins, breaking fingers and limbs all
are acceptable means of attack. No one needs to posses special skills to
overpower and neutralize another human.

- Banding together is key. An Army of one will fall. Act quickly and help
each other.

- I call out to the airlines to provide self defense training to its air-bound
employees. Stewards and stewardesses that are trained to disarm and disable
threatening people should be at the top of the airline's list of change.

We cannot allow these attacks to continue. If our enemies realize that we WILL
fight back, they will be forced to find another method by which to attack our
country and our citizens.

The media has tried to place blame for the failure of our security measures.
What they do not realize is that the rules of engagement have changed. Even
with the best security, intelligence and military, these events can and WILL
still occur. It is up to US to defend ourselves. Bombing the countries
sheltering these terrorists and hunting down the terrorists makes for good news
media. The fact is, the more we respond in a traditional military way, they
more the terrorists will respond in a non-traditional way.

I make this final plea:

Find the inner strength to defend yourself, your loved ones and all the
innocent people. You are more than likely going to die. Don't just sit there
and be collateral damage.


Thank you for your time. GOD Bless America.

Sean Drury
