911

We got a problem. I consider myself a patriot of America, I am proud to be American. I am very lucky to have been born in the United States, southern California to be more exact. I have had the chance to grow up enjoying more or less the fruits of life and even on a small level here in Germany am doing the same. I think most of my success in Germany has had to do with the fact that I was American, indirectly or not. There are so many positive things about the United States, and most of them are unspoken whiffs of wind as you are in the midst of enjoying youself in a truly American activity, like eating in restaurants often, going to the movies, shopping and beautiful weather, spending your Saturday a mix between watching sports, have damn good food with the most minimal of effort, and then plans to have some drinks with friends in a cool area and thinking about a trip to Vegas next month sounds cool. Everything is just right in your world.

Everything is not just right in my world. Here is a small snippet of what has been bothering me lately:

*About the same amount of people who died on 911 is about the number we're about to have ost in Iraq in the past three and a half years.

*The leader of Venezuela calls George Bush "the devil" at the UN meeting. I applauded the freedoms of the United States that sovereign leader of another country can call the president of my country "the devil" within the country. Then I learn thatVenezuela is competing with Guatemala to have a spot on the security council of the UN, I believe, a temporary but temporarily influential power for a couple of years.

*However, the investigation into what happend on 911 was not resolved. They focus on the theory that both of the Twin Towers collapsed because of fire. It turns out only three buildings in the history of steel and concrete structures have ever collapsed because of fire: the two Twin Towers and World Trade Center building 7, a 47-storey structure that was not hit by an airplane at all but at 5.20pm on 911 fell quietly into its own footprint in what even then looked like a controlled demolition.


Go to www.youtube.com and do searches under any of the following:
*lady and Tate 911
*loose change 911
*and vaguer searches for 911 truth or conspiracy and suddenly lots of seemingly credible people in all levels of American society coming together to talk about the truth. If nothing else, we owe it to the 3,000 people that died on 911 and all the innocent soldeiers, Iraqi and Afhani civilians and people who have yet to die because of it.

Mooney,
It's a difficult thing because I love America but think that some people who also "love America" might have let this happen...

Bush is coming to Tallinn soon. It will be the biggest security operation ever - even planes are not allowed to fly in the whole country! To avoid the "smell of sulphur," I`m gonna leave the town ; )

jason,
I enjoyed your thought-provoking post and have found myself wondering if there is a conspiracy around 9-11 as well. I am disappointed by the continued loss of military lives and can only hope the next election will bring about change for the better.

Hi Pal

Sorry to sound a little harsh, but I think you need to get real. I agree, your Govt. has been totally dishonest. But the dishonesty is in making a connection between Iraq and the attack on the Twin Towers.

Three questions:

1. What is the connection between Iraq and the attack on the Twin Towers?

2. George Bush has done and said plenty of stupid things (a lot of them related to his communication with and help from "God"-not ideal in a multi-cultural, multi-faithed, secular country). But, do you really think he and his Govt are stupid enough to destroy one his country's own icons (the WTC), along with several thousand of its people, in order to make a connection that didn't exist before and does not exist now?

3. In what way has going into Iraq (as opposed to strengthening homeland security-airline checks, background checks, surveillance etc) improved rather than seriously exacerbated the threat of another 911 type attack?

The truth is the "civilised" World simply could not let Sadam control that much of the World's oil supply...Period. To be honest that would and should have been enough of an excuse for most people. (I still drive a car and fly-so I'm hardly blameless myself).

By the way, the people who are apparently most aware of this seem to be the soldiers fighting over there. The British ones at least, but then again, nobody in Britain ever thought there was a connection between in 911 and Iraq. We all knew it would make us infinitely more susceptible to terror.
