I chose not to post this until after the 9/11 memorial day, because I do believe that there are some Americans who are truly out to honor their fallen dead and for those who lost family members and loved ones on that day. I wish them my sympathies again and hope for all Americans that a time coming when all of the senseless violence on all sides comes to an end.
That having now been said, here we go again remembering 9/11 and the loss of innocent lives and the destruction of the twin towers and in the process vilifying all Muslims and dredging up the anti Muslim sentiment. It was a tragic event in time I would agree, but it was not and is not the greatest tragedy or the only tragedy of its kind. The fact is that the United States has been doing the same thing to other countries for years and for the past year I doubt whether there has been one day where they have not bombed a city or town in the name of Western justice. I would say that putting monikers like terrorists and terrorist acts depends on which set of eyes one is looking through and the justification for such violent acts depends on who is doing the judging.
I would guess that the idiots responsible for 9/11 thought that they were justified in what they considered USA interference and increasing threat to their way of life. They may have just decided to show the most powerful nation in the world that no one is outside the law and that not all people are afraid of them. They may have decided to show the American people what it feels like to lose your love ones in horrific numbers by acts of violence that you could not defend against, but I fear all that could have been learned was not.
America decided wipe out all things Muslim innocent, or guilty partially to ensure that nothing like this happened to them again, partially as an excuse to grab oil and other wealth as they ravaged the places they occupied, but mostly to irradiate a religion and a people that would not bend to their will, or that of their allies since time began. America and the rest of the Judeao Christian world can ignore or rewrite history to suit themselves, but the truth is that it is these people who for one reason or another keep invading, intruding and occupying other peoples countries, removing governments and instigating civil disobedience and outright treason against a legitimate government. It is not surprising to me that the United States government fears of home-grown terrorism. They have made traitors of their countries heroes, allowed them to immigrate to the United States and treated them poorly; now the government must be wondering how long will it be before they use what we have taught them is right to do to their native governments against us, to make America a better place for them.
We use excuses like we are fighting for the women of these countries to have the right to go to school and we deny the same rights to our native people. We say we are doing all of the violence to secure freedom of expression in all ways for the people of these cruel Islamic regimes, yet when they come to our countries we ask them to leave all of their ways at the door. Even worse we deny those same rights and freedoms to our own people.
Why did the wish to have a memorial day and tribute have to turn into a week-long parade of testimonials, showing of the disaster over and over and generally become a carnival show? Get your peanuts, popcorn and twin tower t-shirts here, will be heard as the need to make a buck off of anything and everything washes away the last traces of this week being a tribute to those that died. In my opinion this is being used as a propaganda tool in an effort to keep this event in the news and a way to keep the fear level up for the United States government, so that it can continue to justify its anti Muslim, anti Islamic campaign. Television reporters and radio announcers keep saying that the citizens of New York still can’t put the tragic event out of their minds and I say how could they? The United States government has made sure that every New Yorker, the rest of Americans and the world would not, or could not forget it.
Maybe there should be a Hiroshima and Nagasaki week to commemorate the USA’s killing of millions of innocent men women and children in just 3 days. Yes 9/11 was tragic and senseless, but so was the USA dropping the bombs. Maybe there should be a week-long media blitz every year to commemorate the millions of innocent men, women and children civilians that the USA and their allies kill every year with their daily bombing runs and missile drops. I know we consider this a small price for these people to pay for their freedom, but I do not think that the fatherless and motherless children feel that way and it is these children and their memories of the Western Alliance’s bombing runs and missile drops that are the new recruits and one day leaders of the anti Christian, anti west movements, willing to give their lives as human bombs for the chance to avenge the deaths of their families.
Now the USA claims that this ground zero memorial is an attempt to honor the dead killed on that day, but to its first responders like the police, firemen and volunteers who are now suffering from cancer and other diseases related to inhaling all of the toxic substances in the air during and after the attack, they do very little or nothing. Maybe instead of a ground zero ceremony and all of this hype, the money might have been more appropriately spent on the living suffering heroes of that day? Maybe instead of using every dollar for the war effort the USA would be better served by using that money for disaster relief it its own country? We have mistrust, hatred, bigotry and a dislike for anything Muslim never before seen in America as a constant reminder of 9/11. We have places like Guantanamo Bay to remind us of 9/11. We have a failing world economy to remind us of 9/11. We have probing of the genital area searches and intrusive x-rays in airports, to remind us of 9/11, so why do we need to a ground zero to remind us of the price that was paid in blood and tears for not only the USA, but for all of the world, but especially the Islamic, Muslim world?
Where America and her allies once tried to pretend they respected the sovereignty of other nations, they now trod over the lands of others, the religion of others, the customs of others, the laws of others and the cultures of others without even trying to pretend they are not doing what they are doing. The USA and their allies seek to assimilate, instead of appreciate. The USA and their allies seek war, instead of peace and to kill, instead of heal and then ask why would some one want to kill us? Why did 9/11 have to happen and the answer is,” One reaps what they sow.” “Live by the sword and you will die by the sword.” “Do unto others as you would have done unto you.”
The truth is what it is the so-called terrorist no longer needs to attack the USA from within, or from without; it need only remain quiet and the silence will set the USA’s imagination racing and have its people and its leaders see a terrorist threat around every corner. The terrorist have already won the USA and their allies way of life has been shattered and altered forever, their confidence shaken. For all of the regimes being knocked down in Muslim countries and all of the lives being lost, by the constant warring of Islamic nations verses the Western Alliance, the USA and its allies still live in constant fear of being attacked. What more of a victory could the 9/11 terrorist have ever have hoped for?
America you lost 3 planes with passengers and crew, 2 buildings, and a badly damaged 3rd and 3000 people and you can not forget it. You are still mourning your dead after 10 years and are still destroying everything Muslim as a punishment for 9/11. Why should the ancestors of those Japanese Islands that you decimated with your atom bombs forgive you; how long should it take to forget the millions of innocent civilian lives you took in revenge for the bombing of military targets in Pearl Harbor? It has certainly not taken you long to forget what you have done or what you are doing now.
Look around the world Israel finds itself being alienated where once it had allies, because of the regime changes the Western Alliance has been instrumental in achieving. The world has not become a better place, or a safer place, post 911 for all of the bombing, and the security measures. There will never be peace until the west stops trying to create the whole world in its image. The rest of the world likes its religions its customs and its mixture of cultures. They find nothing brilliant about the greedy, opportunistic ways of the west and do not wish to become part of the rat race.
Remembering 9/11 does little, learning from it does more, making positive changes to ourselves would be great.
