My boyfriend's friend's friend was in one of the nightclubs. He died. It's just senseless, horrible.

I'm so sorry to hear this Saracene.

Unfortunately I think there will be many more stories like this to come. There are still at least 200 Australians unaccounted for. I can't believe this is happening...

They just announced on the news that some victims were taken to Singapore and are in hospital there - there may be a slim chance for some people that they might find a few more alive.

i am sadden and horrified to see that this has happen again. i too wish this maddness would stop. it is awful and my heart goes out to all of those who lost a loved one in these bombings. i too am tired of reading and watching the news. i would love to wake up one morning and not hear news about war, snipers, terrorists, rapist, serial killers, etc.

The newspapers are reporting an Al Queda link today..

actually, Bali is about as close to Jakarta as Chicago is to NYC. And believe it or not, just because a few people get on the news for their reactions, it is not a fair or accurate representation of the entire population in any way.

Extremism is always a bad thing. Particularly religious extremism.
How murdering a bunch of innocent young people is justifiable I will never know.

MAP

p.s.- After 9/11 many of the helpful folks here suggested that it was an opportunity for us Americans to reflect on our sins. These things never occur in a vacuum etc, etc. Perhaps now would be a good time for Australians to consider their culpability in this atrocity.

To those people who know my views on this topic, just read that last sentence, and now you will know why I think that.

you know, i sure as hell hope this entire statement is some sort of twisted sarcasm or something! there is absolutely no validity to this statement. in fact, i find it outright offensive and sick! A FUCKING OPPORTUNITY FOR AMERICANS AND AUSTRALIANS TO REFLECT ON THEIR SINS?????!!!! what the fuck is wrong with you?!!! could you have made any more of a general, ludacris, and asanine statement? yes, i suppose the atrocities and horrific sins commited by america and australia justify the loss of these innocent lives and the future taking of them at the hands of individuals who simply "seek a moral cleansing of the corrupt". hello???? this sort of sentiment is along the lines of those fucking nutbag muslim extremists and all other religious fanatics for that matter!!!!!! if anyone needs to "reflect on their sins", it's those fucking countries that support, nurture, and turn a blind eye to the militant religious fanatics in their country!!!!

c'mon people, Matthew was not seriously blaming australians, it may have been in poor taste at this time, but no more so than the people who commented for the last year that america "reeped what it sowed" on 9/11

Ouch Trip, Wanderer, dont get all fired up. I sincerely doubt MAP was saying that too. I simply didn't know what he was referring to, which is why I asked. If my country were to reflect on its greatest sins, we dont have to go overseas to find the root or the cause. We kinda keep our shit to our own. Ha.

i really dont know what the hell mp is on about and until he confirms it, i will not comment, especially as ive just watched the 6 o clock news and sat here in tears and am feeling rather upset.

they have now stated that per capita we have lost more lives than america did in 9/11. this is the most fucking unbelievable thing thats ever happened to australians.
doctors are shocked and horrified at what they are seeing. one just described the wounded as only the sort of things you see in war.
a father just told of how he couldnt even recognise the face of his own daughter.

yes diamond, the number one suspect is apparently a bin laden supporter and admirer.

YOUNG, innocent holiday makers in another country. What fucking agenda would anyone have to murder them?
9/11 was the backbone of America's power and business. You can see what the aims of those bastards were then.
This....no fucking reason anyone could have.

i agree with you angie. although i have to ask that if MAP thought comments like that were disgusting and horrible when people said it to Americans about 9/11, why would he use it against someone else now?
