United Continental Holdings, Inc. Message Board

    Opinions on these boards could be from

    terrorists who are using this to spread fear and hostility.
    I would recommend not responding to any of these posters who were not regulars before.

    If they are not terrorists they seem to be disturbed individuals who need to incite others.

    I would suggest that it is not appropriate to try to place blame with anyone at this time. What is important is to find ways to
    make America stronger and work together for that purpose.

    Everyone has opinions and under normal circumstances I would think they would be fine to explore.
    Right now we need input on how to make us stronger and not tear apart the country.

    If these people are Americans, and money is the driving force for some of these inappropriate comments to make the market
    less stable. It would say to me that the love of money is the root of all evil!

    • Hmmm..... Well, I'm not a terrorist, and I am an American. And I really am trying to be constructive here. I'm sorry if this is offensive to some. Hindsight is one thing, and yes, it is 20/20. And it is clear that a gross weakness in security in the airline industry was exploited.

      Now, we can deny the fact that airlines hold any level of responsibility due to their ludicrous security measures. But that that would simply encourage further inaction. Blame is not the issue here. Ultimately, the terrorists are to blame for this crime. But responsibililty is the issue here. The airlines are responsible for your safety when you fly. Of course each passenger must partipate, but in reality, we depend on the airlines.

      And they let us down.

      I hope you see that I'm not trying to terrorize anyone. I'm just tired of all the denial.

      Benjamin Franklin: �Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither Liberty nor safety.� (November 11, 1755.)
