I, on the other hand, grasp the reality of the situation. I looked at the Pentagon as objectively as I could. I was willing to accept either
side of the story when I went into investigating it for myself. I concluded that it was indeed a 757 that hit the building - I did not give any
opinion regarding who was to blame for it being allowed to happen.
Hosannah! the Oracle of truth has arrived. Everyone you can now turn off your minds because Cat Herder has determined the truth. And is perfectly
willing to shove it down anyone's throat who doesn't agree with him.
If you have arrived at this view after examining so much evidence, why are you so afraid to allow others the freedom to experience their own
exploration of the truth and form there opinons thusly?
Why are you so tense about it? Honestly it makes you seem a little weird. Im considered weird so don't take it as an insult.
Truth is Truth. It will find it's way through in the end. So truly you can relax about it.
Actually, I'm not afraid of terrorism much at all. You see, I am a Canadian - we haven't had a history of shoving our domestic policies down the
throat of the rest of the world because we don't view ourselves as some sort of world saviour like so many in the US do. We are not a prime target
for terrorism, we don't fund (very many) foreign policy positions that are aimed at controlling another nation or subverting it's religions or
people. We're more about "leading by example" -- when we demand another nation abide by international law and human rights, we first off agree to
be bound by those same international laws and human rights ourselves (ICC as an example).
At the same time we enjoy the same technology level as the US, the same quality of life (actually far higher according to world averages), more
freedoms, universal medicare, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, basically the same way of life people in the US enjoy (except with more social
systems in place for those who need it). We have the same opportunities for personal gain and wealth. We watch the same TV shows you do, the same
movies, the same music, the same media, the same everything... but for some strange reason we aren't hated anywhere near along the lines of our
neighbours to the south.
I suppose that's part of what allows me to view the 911 events objectively. While I was, and am, outraged at what happened, and I was shaken to the
core as I watched it all unfold live, I am still able to remain above being emotional when I read and study the events on and up to that day.
Now I know you're going to jump up and say this is a bash the US, I hate America post, but it's not. I like the US, I really do. I just often wonder
what it is that causes so many Americans to think and act the way they do.
And I welcome opinions and information from others on any subject. I don't respond to people just for the sake of arguing with them (like some
posters on here who think it's all the rage to "own" somebody in a thread). I just prefer uncovering what is real and what is make believe when it
comes to some topics.
I wonder how you'll spin this information into your previous post accusing me of working for the US state department.
