Well here we are on the 2nd anniversary of the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York City and the deaths of 3,000 people. Any thoughts on, especially from New York peeps?

I think it's time to stop dwelling on this event and to move on. Any disatrous loss of life is tragic and it is something that occurs everyday on a smaller scale all over this country in the ghettos that are terrorized by gangs. Osama bin Ladin (Not Saddam Hussein) will never have to plan another attack because he and his crew did with 2 planes what no amount of sophisticated weaponry could accomplish. He inflicted long range psychological damage on the population of the most powerful and arrogant nation in the world by showing them that they are not invincible and that their blood spills just like anyone elses. Now, that fool in the white house is trying to justify his folly by claiming that by stopping the terrorists in Iraq, we will prevent them from committing terrorism in America. Not! Well, obviously you will not catch me waving any flags. I will now stumble off my soap box.

Cynique,

I agree with all of what you say. However, because of the sheer and unique enormity of what occurred, and the myriad implications that followed, I can understand and tolerate our nation's continuing obsession with 911.

I, however, find it to be chillingly ironic that there is ZERO such fascination bestowed upon the death/mayhem/aftermath cause by the corn-fed, US Military trained, All-American whiteboy terrorist Timothy McVee. It's has been fewer than 10 years since McVee killed over 100 innocent/halpless Americans - many of them children - in a US government building no-less, and yet it's almost like the Oklahoma City bombing never happened.

All:

Interesting. Interesting. For mah New York peeps, I visit another site (I do visit other sites) where posters from New York City list one of the big disadvantages of living in the city is that it is prime target for another terrorist attack. Do you feel this way? How does it affect your plans?

Cynique--My we are Cynique, aren't we? I don't think we will move past it--we are in the Oprahization Era, where we tearfully wallow in the bathos of tragic events (while doing nothing about them of course--oddly, I think it will affect this generation deeper--my parents had Pearl Harbor, and they tended not to dwell much on the JFK assasination--we had the JFK assasination and this generation is not much moved by that.

ABM: Re McVeigh, sometimes in my more cynical moods, I think that people in this country think that when a white man gets po'd its his right to blow up a building and kill women and children--but in my more rational moments I think that all the ramifications of this--a clean cut, all American boy, a decorated war veteran doing this scares the hell out of them and they don't want to think about it--something Americans are very good at doing and something that bodes ill for the future.

The backwoods of Missouri are swarming with heavily armed folks who think that 9/11 was just dandy and are waiting for more such incidents to give them their chance--overthrow of ZOG.
