    Default OT: 9/11 Please do not forget to remember

    Tomorrow will be a sad day to remember re: 9/11 Too many innocent
    people (from all over the world) died in the WTC buildings, the
    Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania by the hands of a few selfish persons who
    chose to be barbaric. It's important to always remember, no matter how
    much it hurts.

    I see no difference between 9/11 and Pearl Harbor, none whatsoever.
    The friggin' mooslims deserved the same response the friggin' japs
    got, only nuked into *total* oblivion... Bush ****ed up... not to
    worry, it's still going to happen, and soon, and will be far worse.

    Pearl Harbor: 2,402 dead

    9/11: nearly 3,000 dead

    Atomic bombing Nagasaki: between 60,000 and 80,000 dead

    Atomic bombing Hiroshima: between 90,000 and 166,000 dead

    What do the friggin' Americans deserve?

    Americans deserve unprovoked attacks? Nice that you can quote statistics
    but it's stupid to make it sound like WE started this ****. The U.S. didn't
    bomb the hell out of Japan on a whim.

    What I, as a Canadian remember, is that suddenly we had an influx of
    flights from Europe. We coped with that and extended hospitality to
    all those stuck here en route to the USA. Personally I sheltered a
    very nice Lebanese lady who was going to Chicago.

    You needed help, it was automatically given but I often wondered if
    the reverse had been true, would GWB have declared 'no planes land
    here' !

    After it was all over, imagine how great we felt. GWB (who had run
    away on a jet instead of standing with his people - I'm awfully glad
    Churchill didn't do that during WWII) was on television thanking 'Our
    brother Mexicans for all their compassion' ??? Canada ? No mention,
    he later tried to cover it over by saying that was because we are
    family. In addition we had, and still do, listen to the rot about how
    the 'terrorists' came from Canada, despite the fact they lived and
    trained to fly in Florida.

    Just because something happened on your soil don't deify it into
    something larger than what it was - think Nagasaki and Hiroshima - as
    a little kid I saw the devastation there and clearly remember these
    many years later, THAT was mammoth tragedy !

    As if we haven't all seen those images. No one is diefying anything. It's

    It was a tragedy. After the way the Japanese had swept across Asia and
    the Pacific and committed countless atrocities in the lands they
    occupied, the entire island chain should have been nuked. There were
    more people killed in Nanking alone than in two atomic bombings
    combined, systematically raped and slaughtered by Japanese troops.

    We took the Pearl Harbor guided tour.

    Many Japanese tourists were giggling/laughing the whole time. I
    don't know if it was a guilt relief behavior or pride. Made me
    angry.

    On 9/11, 2001, I didn't lose anyone but I remember being worried
    about Michael Lomonoco, executive chef at "Windows on the
    World" restaurant on the top floor and also the charismatic host
    of the food TV show "Epicuriou

    My ex and I had dinner reservations years before 9/11 but with
    Broadway and off-Broadway in full swing, after sitting in the
    cab only a block from the hotel, for a half hour, we gave up.

    I had just gotten to work when the staff rushed me with the
    news, some in tears. They showed me a computer with the CNN
    photographs of the WTC. I was numb. They asked me (ME!?) what
    they should do? I said "call and round up your loved ones and go
    home. They quickly scattered. Without sitting down I did an
    about face and left. At the train station all trains were
    canceled. Amtrak turned off the rails, or something to that
    effect. Thousands of people there were effectively stranded. I
    wondered how would I get home. I was doubtful cabs would be
    available. It WAS high anxiety. When all of a sudden, the train
    to Media, PA was announced was arriving! It seems they didn't
    use the Amtrak rails. I climbed aboard, thanking my lucky stars.

    When I got home, I stayed glued to the TV news coverage for
    days/weeks for every little details.

    Years after, my best friend and I did a NYC day trip and walked
    the Ground Zero perimeter. It was maybe a 10 story empty pit. In
    a small way it was my way of paying respect to all the fallen
    innocents and heroes.

    It's this kind of thinking that caused 9/11.

    You're saying it's possible to justify the killing of 150,000+

    Unfortunately you can't cherry pick with something like the WWII conflict.

    Its 1945 and you are in charge. You know the Japanese fighting spirit
    and you know they won't stop. What would you do? Send flowers to the
    emperor? Or would you pick a course that was sure to kill many but was
    also sure to limit the overall loss of life in ending the war?

    You are in charge of protecting the president. An attack whose scope is
    not identified is occurring. Would you have the president go out to the
    rose garden and shake his fist or would you get him into AF1 and
    airborne until whatever was happening was identified?

    When you do that you are just as soulless as the people you are killing.
    We knew the Japanese fighting spirit and that they would never stop the
    war easily. So we picked a course that in the big picture caused the
    lowest loss of life.

    I can. If it would save 300,000 I'd give the order or do the deed.
    For 150,001, I'd have to see both lists of names.

    I'm with you there, but I understand any Canadian's disgust for not
    being recognized in GW's grand speech. I blame 3 speech writers
    and Whitehouse stupidity--- but my ox wasn't gored.


    I'm certainly no fan of W- but that particular speech was his best and
    his people screwed the pooch.

    How can I forget. Some joker, some flag-waving moron invokes the
    memory almost every single friggin day of the year!

    What irks me about the whole "remember 9/11" outcry is no one
    remembers the Oklahoma City bombing by Timothy McVeigh, yet everyone
    remembers 9/11. Is that cuz 9/11 has some racial bigotry to help fan
    the flames, but OC was by an all American white guy? OC was all the
    more terrifying BECAUSE! it was an all-American white guy. That
    scares the crap outta me. You KNOW them easy-to-spot-in-the-terminal
    crazy camel jockeys hate us, but that computer-game-playing
    ice-cream-eating white kid next door? What's next? Nuclear plant
    sabotage by the DAR granny from down the street? Who's watching her?
